I believe God is the biggest power present in this universe and having believe in GOD and celebrating God festivals is essential in our life. God gives everything to us and nature is one of them. Being a Hindu Brahmin, we have more than 33 crores Devi Devta and respecting everyone is our moral, social and religious duty. Do you know? for whom I am talking about here. The answer is Jal Devta (Water in God form), Vaau Devta (Air in God form) and many more.

On the auspicious occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi, we bring idols of Lord Ganesha at home. We do worship, listening spiritual songs, offering flowers & modak to Lord Ganesha for 10 days and on the 11th day, the biggest day of this festival known as Anant Chaturdashi put these idols into the river. Putting Idols into the rives causes the water pollution as well as disturb the life cycle of marine species.

Impact on Marine Species & its Solutions

The ritual of Ganesh Visarjan during Ganesh Chaturthi is a very huge event where the huge idol of Lord Ganesha put into water. Let’s discuss how the Visarjan effects the marine life.

•  Usually, these idols are made of plaster of Paris (POP) which is very harmful to the water. These idols take several years to completely dissolve into the water and till that time, these particles move freely in the water bodies. The marine species eat these particles that eventually kill them.

•  Along with the idols, other materials like flowers, decoration materials, polythene bags, plastic etc. put into the river as well. It only increases the water pollution and impacts the marine life.

•  These idols are made of several chemicals and these chemicals reduce the oxygen level of water. Due to this, marine species are unable to breathe causing them to die.

Here now our question is “What is the Right way to celebrate environment friendly Ganesh Chaturthi”? Here, we are suggesting a few solutions so that we could protect the water from pollution.

•  Start making idols of Lord Ganesha from eco-friendly materials. If you immersed eco-friendly idols into water, harmful impact would be very less.

•  Make a small pond at your home and dip the Lord Ganesha in that water only.

•  Metal or brass can be used to make the idols of Lord Ganesha and it can be used repeatedly.


It is our nature and protecting our nature is our prime responsibility. It is the precious gift given by the God. Now it is up to us, how do we take care of our mother earth.
