artificial ponds for ganesh visarjan

This Ganesh Chaturthi, in a break from tradition, this year, instead of heading to the lakes, use artificial ponds installed in your locality by the civic body. Artificial immersion ponds are installed around the city in order to preserve the city’s water bodies. Immersion of idols damage the water bodies. In order to protect the city’s water bodies from the damage caused by Ganpati idol immersions and encourage more people to use artificial ponds.
