Ganpati Bappa Moraya!

The wait is finally over! The season of festivities is here. With it, has also begun the countdown of Bappa’s arrival. Our kids have also been gearing up to give Bappa a grand welcome. This year, they decided to delight Bappa, in ecofriendly way. Yep, you heard that right! Our young craftsmen from Walnut school Shivane and Walnut school Fursungi sculpted ecofriendly idols of lord Ganesha on 1st September 2018.

On Saturday morning, papers were spread. Clay was mixed with water. The base was set, and so were our sculptors. The whole atmosphere was supercharged, as our craftsman from Walnut Shivane (Std. 1 to Std. 8) and Walnut Fursungi (Std. 1 to Std. 6) settled themselves. Apart from our teachers, few volunteers from Sakal had come to train our kids. 

Making sculptures, no doubt, is quite a skillful work. It takes years for professional artists to master this art. However, our kids tried their level best. They blended the clay diligently, and created beautiful structures. The face, the trunk, and every body part they made appeared so adorable. If they missed any step in between, they were helped by teachers and trainers.

By all means, their structures were not as perfect, if we were to compare with professional idols. But then again, isn’t that the most beautiful part of it all? The kids doing it, despite all the imperfections.

Beyond making beautiful idols, our kids also suggested something important through their craft. It was their message of asking us to ‘embrace the ecofriendly way of celebration’. Much to the delight of nature, and our beloved Bappa!
