The Hindu reports
The initiative plans to prepare in clay 1,000 Ganesha idols measuring 5 feet for pandals and another 15,000 smaller ones.

According to Vijaya Ram, president of SAVE, the bigger idols would be made available at Rs.3,000 and the smaller idols at Re.1.
“The idea is to propagate the use of clay idols and ensure that water bodies are not affected from their immersion,” he said.

Artisans from Kolkata have been brought for the job of making these idols for which clay has been brought in from the banks of River Ganga.
Those buying the big idols would also be provided with khadi cloth for decoration of the idol, five cloth bags and posters on rain water harvesting.

“For carrying the smaller idols, we are getting specially prepared paper bags,” Mr. Vijaya Ram said.
