Green Ganesha
The 10 day long Ganesh festival is celebrated with great fervour in Mumbai. Music, lights, songs, decorations, themes, colours and firecrackers are used to honour the elephant headed God who is also considered to be a symbol of good fortune, wisdom, prosperity and wealth.
However, people are increasingly growing conscious of nature and the environment around us. The sale of eco-friendly Ganpati idols, which do not cause any harm to the environment, are on the rise. Various materials ranging from shadu (natural clay), flour, paper pulp, natural gums, natural colours etc. are used to make the idol of Ganesha.
The Afternoon D&C team of photographers Trupti Arekar, Santosh Gupta and Azad Shrivastav visited various workshops across the city and captured glimpses of the 'Vighnaharta' in the making.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)It is advisable to continue in your present work even if things move slowly. You may feel restless and uneasy but remain calm. Your benefits come from those close to you. You will find that you will do well with consistent hard work. Try not to get upset by delays. In marital relationships keep calm for there could be a clash of opinion over minor issues. Stay away from parties or outings.
