Sarvajanik Utsav Mandals determined to celebrate Ganeshotsav ideally in Yavatmal
Yavatmal : With a view to celebrate Ganeshotsav in an ideal manner by stopping malpractices in sarvajanik utsav, ‘Sarvajanik Utsav Samanvay Shibir’ was organised by HJS in Bhave Mangal Karyalay here. Shri. Arvind Pansare, spokesperson of HJS in Maharashtra was the main speaker. Adv. (Sou.) Shruti Bhat of Hindu Vidhidnya Parishad and Samiti’s Dist. Coordinator, Shri. Mangesh Khandel were present at this time. The shibir commenced with blowing of conch shell and lighting of the auspicious lamp. Shri. Mangesh Khandel gave guidance with regard to celebrating Ganeshotsav in an ideal manner by putting a stop to malpractices during that time.
Adv. Shruti Bhat said, “Progressive people advise to donate the idol of Shri Ganesh to avoid the pollution caused by its immersion in water. This is very unscientific. These people ignore the pollution caused by factories and other sources releasing polluted water throughout the year. Criminal complaints are registered on Ganeshotsav mandals, Durga utsav mandals in the name of pollution; the sound pollution created throughout the whole year by the hooters on mosques is completely ignored. There should be protests against this.”
Shri. Arvind Pansare, HJS spokesperson of the State said, “72 years have passed since independence – swarajya; but yet we do not have achieved Surajya; corruption has spread tremendously in police, administration, judiciary, health, education. Democracy is being disrobed. Therefore it is the duty of every mandal to try to create the Rashtra expected by Lokmanya Tilak.”
Office bearers of mandals participated spontaneously in the discussion held there. At that time they expressed their determination of celebrating Ganeshotsav ideally by stopping malpractices taking place during that period. 26 office-bearers of 12 mandals in the city participated in this shibir.
