Ganpati Visarjan

Devotees take down a Ganpati idol for immersion at the Girgaum Chowpatty. Ganpati visargan indicates the end of the 10 day long Ganesh Utsav. The idols around the city end up in either immersion ponds or in the sea. These idols are normally made of POP which doesn’t dissolve in water, leading to water pollution and affecting marine life.
In turn, a holy celebration finally leads to much hurt to the earth
