Ganpati Bapa Maurya!! The splendid season for a supersonic yell. The season for colorful idols that pave the path for we, the humans to migrate closer to god. The idols of te ‘Vighnaharta’ sprinkle drizzles of holiness. The arrival of ‘Ganesh Chaturthi’ blooms the flowers of happiness and sheds away the leaves of grief. The odours of joy and enchantment spread all round the air.
The beautiful and aggressive effigies on every hook and corner of our nation add up to the elegancy of our country. But every tasty edible substance is hazardous to health. Much the same way these shining carvings on POP i.e. Plaster of
Paris alters to the health of our
environment. Knowing the fact that when these POP idols are immersed in the
water bodies, they are harmful to them, yet we use them. These POP statues are
too much hazardous that even they are insoluble in the universal solvent. The
constituents of these idols contain hazardous chemicals that possess a major
threat to the aquatic world; we still offer our prayers to the harmful
chemicals, just for the sake that the eco-friendly deities aren’t too shiny,
that others shower tones of praise. This is an axiom that no more do we
celebrate fests with a true feeling of religiousness and the corollary drawn up
from this fact is that we bring the POP statues just for showing off to others.
Nowadays every festival is celebrated for money and show offs. But the fact is that the eco-friendly deities are not much to look at and at the same time expensive. But in these competitive generation who wouldn’t like to show off beauty and gracefulness and that too at cheaper rates. No one in the world would like to spend more money and buy rubbish. So this is one of those alarming truths behind the use of POP’s despite every effort of nature-loving humans. Human nature proposes that a person would never change the tendency of thinking except that it is a massive agreement. So for the sake of revolutionizing the minds of huge number of people the eco-friendly deities have to be made as attractive as the POP ones and also they ought to be sold at reasonable rates. This is the genuine reason why people, in spite of the awareness pretend to be dumb and fools. Or else who doesn’t love to be healthy, as the plaster of parisized water when consumed is dangerous to the smooth functioning of our body. And also no creature round the globe, except the destructive headed mentally ill ones would like to destruct the nature that supports their lives.
These are some of my thoughts of the intensive reason of the usage of POPs. But at the same time a weird cogency strikes my mind. Is it just a rumor about the POP effigies or is it really a very epoch making statistics? Or is it a strategy made by the eco-friendly effigy makers to spread a scuttlebutt for their business to strive? Or……Who knows? Certain contemplations are always wrangling.
