    Tons of plaster of Paris being dumped in Hussain Sagar in the name Ganesh idols ?

    If Hussain Sagar can speak, it would certainly curse all the Hyderabadis as every year lakhs of Ganesh Idols are immersed through the centralized procession which will last for two full days and entire city comes to stand still with all shops and establishments are closed to view the biggest gathering of human beings taking out procession on grand scale to immerse Ganesh Idols. Though appeals have been made to go for Mud Ganesh, no takers. This time more big and small idols made of plaster of paris and chemicals were prayed and immersed. At least next year the practice must be purely natural.

    It is very sad to see irrespective of many appeals and requests from various people and NGOs to stop usage of colours made of artificial chemicals for making the Ganesha idols. There is some change this year. A part of the people started using clay made idols and natural colours. But still majority are going by their old practice only. It is creating problem in the waters of Hussain sagar . The government was talking about purifying the waters of this pond but I don't think that was happened. People should become more cautions about protection of environment and they should try to change some age old practices and see that we don't create problems to fellow human beings.
    Except this all other things went very well yesterday. Police has organised the event very well without any unnecessary quarrels and disputes. People also behaved very nicely. I think Lord Ganesha is very happy. So today heavy rain in some parts of Hyderabad and all roads dark as if it is still night.
