Drilling into children the message of eco-friendly celebrations

NTPC distributes clay Ganesha idols

On the eve of Ganesha festival, the NTPC-Ramagundam, in association with the Telangana State Pollution Control Board (TSPCB), Ramagundam Regional Office, distributed clay Ganesha idols in NTPC-Ramagundam township on Sunday.

On the occasion, NTPC Ramagundam executive director P.P. Kulkarni advised people to buy eco-friendly clay Ganesha idols and discourage the use of those made of Plaster of Paris (POP), which were causing massive damage to the environment. He added that children should be encouraged to make clay Ganesha idols.

Echoing a similar view, TSPCB-Ramagundam environmental engineer K. Ravidas said the purpose of the distribution of clay idols was to create awareness among people, especially children, on the use of eco-friendly Ganesha idols to protect water bodies from pollution.

The main attraction of the programme was live demonstration of the making of clay Ganesha idol, organised by Bal Bhavan of Deepthi Mahila Samithi.

It surely amused the children who were present on the occasion.

General manager (TS) P.K. Laad, GM (operation) B.C. Polai, GM (maintenance) Oumendra Das, Deepthi Mahila Samithi president Swati P. Kulkarni, Bal Bhavan in-charge Mamta Laad, office-bearers and members of Deepthi Mahila Samithi, employee unions and associations and others from the township were present.
