Why Little Khushi Makes Her Own Ganesha

We ask you, Dear Readers, to send us your Ganpati pictures!

Jyoti Kapade from Dombivli writes about her daughter, Khushi, who studies in Class 6 at the IES Chandrakant Patkar School:

‘Ganesha has had a special place in our heart since childhood as the God with an elephant’s face and cute little chubby child’s body so she always prepares an eco-friendly Ganesha from clay and makes our environment pollution-free.

‘Let’s start good things from ourselves.

‘This festival we are celebrating to make God happy.

‘Can God become happy if we are doing such kinds of pollution in our environment?

‘If everybody will think like this then we can easily preserve our tradition with the same essence and make India pollution free.

‘We have experienced it now it’s your turn!

‘Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to share talent.’ Please click on/hover over the image to see how Khushi made her Ganesha.

‘Lord has the power to re-energise everyone and bring peace.

‘For me, He epitomises strength, success and knowledge.

‘I love Bappa because He brings lots of Positivity, Energy and Blessings for all of us.

‘I also get a chance to dance on Ganpati Bappa songs in school.

Ganpati Bappa Moriya…’

Jiyaan has also invited Chhota Bheem to celebrate with him.
