Megha Upadhyay/Indore. Ganesh festival is celebrated all over the country. Everyone welcomes Ganesha in their own way. Even in Indore, the financial capital of Madhya Pradesh, Ganesha has been established at various places and cultural events are being organized there. Also the pandals are decorated with unique themes. Among which the decoration of MT Cloth Market pandals is attracting everyone. While pandals are usually decorated with tents or flowers, here the food is decorated with leaves, the purpose behind which is to convey a noble social message.
In fact, in the age of modernity, we are leaving our culture behind, including the food culture. In earlier times, on any occasion, food was served sitting on the ground on disposable plates made of leaves, called pattals. They not only double the health as well as taste, but also ensure environmental safety. Nowadays plates made of plastic and such things are used which are playing with both health and environment, so this message is conveyed to all who come for darshan in pandal.
The same leaves are still used in bullion.
We all know that Indore is famous for its food, so this is the best way to convey this message to people. Even today in Indore, shops in Sarafa Bazaar serve food on plates made of this leaf and to spread the same message across the world, Ganapati pandals were decorated. But every day different types of pandals are being created here which will help in conveying different social messages to people.
Every component will be reused
Let us tell you that all these leaves will not be thrown in the garbage, but they will be arranged so neatly in the pandal that when they are taken out later, they will be used in the bhajan to be held on the day of eternity. Chaturdashi
