Every festival in India has a scientific significance and has its own mythological story. Nowadays, in the busiest life, the origin of these festivals has been lost, and only the traditions remain. The ill effects of these festivals on the environment are sad and worrying. Therefore, Art Club of Indore Institute of Management and Research has organized workshop Eco friendly Ganesha Idol and Manadala Art for students to start and maintain a new tradition, so that they can fulfill their duty towards the environment. On this Ganesh Chaturthi, they should also build their own Eco friendly Ganesha Idol and Manadala Art and inspire the others to do the same.
Total 30 students of IIMR of all the departments participated in the workshop and they were asked to bring their own material for the workshop. The activity of Ganesh Idol making started at 11:00 AM and activity of Mandala art started at 2:00 PM in room number 2, ‘A’ block, IIST, Indore on 27th August, 2022. At the beginning of the event, students were explained the importance of a friendly Ganesh Idol. Students were trained to make an Idol and the same day already prepared Idol was painted in front of the students. After completion of the all the Idols and Mandala the exhibition of idols and mandala was displayed on 29 August 2022, at ‘B’ block, near library, IIST, Indore at 2:30 PM. Some of them were sold out and details are enclosed. Our students participated with full enthusiasm and zeal. The workshop was successfully conducted.
