Konkan Rly Celebrates with  Eco-Friendly Ganesha


26ganesotsavMumbai, Aug 26 : Taking encouragement from last year’s initiative, this year too Konkan Railway will be celebrating Ganeshotsav at its residential colony at Seawoods, Navi Mumbai with an Eco-friendly Ganesha idol made by its own employees to spread message of environment conservation.

The 3 employees of Konkan Railway – namely D.R.Sawant (Electrical dept), Kishore Raut (Engineering dept) and Minaz Zari (Signals & Telecom dept) – took 10 days to make the eco-friendly Ganesha idol. It is worthwhile to mention herein that the same staff has been undertaking bicycle expedition to various parts of the country for last 3 years to spread awareness on environment conservation.

The eco-friendly Ganesha idol is made from old newspapers soaked in water with natural adhesive from babool trees, duly moulded and transformed into a beautiful Ganesha ! The idol is coloured with water colours. Last year the eco-friendly Ganesha idol made by the staff of Konkan Railway had won award in the “DNA Eco-Ganesha Contest”.

This Ganesha idol will be open for public darshan for five days from the day of Ganesh Chaturthi.
