- The Idol
Avoid idols made of POP (Plaster of Paris). The simple reason being that during visarjan, the POP idols do not blend into the river waters, thus polluting the environment. The better alternative is to use idols made of mud, idols that are easily soluble in water without causing much harm to the environment.
- The Visarjan
Another way to be eco-friendly is by not immersing the idol in rivers and other water bodies. What one can do is fill a bucket with water and immerse the idol in the same. This would serve the immersion purpose and do a little good to environment. A little pollution would be saved this festive season.
- The Sound
Another type of pollution which is pretty common in Indian festivals is the sound. Bollywood songs that are played on high volumes for the public to dance on are a huge nuisance to the society. It is harmful to the ears of everyone around and disturbs the entire environment and the surroundings around.
Following these few tips can make you a responsible citizen, have a happy festival!
