Ganesha Festival And Social Outlook
Surely, wealth, health and fulfill all our wishes. But what if God has given you the power to fulfill your wishes and others too. Are you donating to poor in the name of God? Are you holding campaigns to save and grow trees? Your society is actually partying. You must party. But there is another task God has given you to do. Be the true devotee by helping poor, blinds, orphans, poor students. Every society is contributing enough amount of capital to celebrate the festival. But apart from self comfort we must think to participate in social work. The donation to poor, orphans and blinds will prove to be the real offerings to Ganesha.
There had been effective ways of entertainment during this festival. Music, dance, musical chair play and many other games are observed. We must also implement another idea of storytelling. Not only in your society but also to orphans, blinds and other poor children and adults. The mythological stories and other moral stories to educate poor and help them to reshape their thoughts.
Our nation is breathing in freedom and we must think about how we can accomplish Lokmanya Tilak's dream? Not a freedom fight, but to cultivate the wise thoughts and knowledge within illiterate. Very few people have taken a wise step to implement this festival for social work and issues. Students were seen with Ganesha idols at ecological painting in Hyderabad. They intended to spread message on 'STOP WATER POLLUTION.' From last decade we are observing issue on water pollution. Entire nation is indulged in this festival and at the last day of this festival, idols are submerged into rivers, sea and lakes. The painted idols contains toxic chemicals those caused intense water pollution.
The ecological painting workshop had taken initiative to come to a solution by creating Ganesha idols by using clay and natural soils. This initiative inspired people to set a goal to pollution free festival. So from now onward, we must be prepared with our new social tool to bring knowledge, literacy and spiritual enlightenment in everybody's life.
