Ganesha All Set And Ready!
With just a day to go for the 11-day Ganesh festival — the most favourite among people in the financial capital of Mumbai, idol-makers are getting ready for the festivities, beginning tomorrow.

While the city streets are buzzing with murti (idol) artists, including women artists, the grand pandals are also in the making.

There are two kinds of murtis — those made with plaster of paris (POP) and of clay. The making of idols is a round the year affair and the booking begins five months in advance. A one feet clay idol takes three days to make while the POP one is easier to make and the artist can prepare two of these in three days. Some of the idols have take the look of 'Lalbaugcha Raja' — which is also in demand, say artists.  

However, it is the eco-friendly idols that takes more time and labour, and, hence, costs more, finds Azad Shrivastav.
