Saving the earth with a mould and a fistful of clay

It such an irony that we used the idols of Lord Ganesha, God who symbolized intellect and wisdom to poison the earth. Understanding seems to have dawned when a small initiative by Pratham has woken the people of Sujjaluru, Hyakanuru and Mttattathi in T. Narsipura Taluk to shun the idols made of the harmful Plaster of Paris. A demonstration on how to make idols using clay has made the people of these villages to make their own idols and also sell them to earn some money. May wisdom dawn on more people to follow suit.
