Paper Ganesh

Fevicol A+, a specialised adhesive  from Pidilite, supported artist Bhagyashree Deshpande in the attempt to etch her name in the prestigious Limca Book of Records by creating the largest paper-quilling Ganesh idol at High Street Phoenix. The idol, which stands five feet and two inches tall, is made from 40,000 paper strips glued together with 50 bottles of Fevicol A+ of 85 gms. It had been largely completed beforehand by Deshpande and had 50 students from schools across Mumbai coming together to apply finishing touches.

Bhagyashree said, “Making an entry into the Limca Book of Records is never easy and with the support of Fevicol A+, I am attempting to achieve the esteemed record... Paper quilling requires immense patience but using Fevicol A+ just made the whole process much easier.”

Shantanu Bhanja, CEO, Consumer Products, Pidilite Industries Ltd said, “Creativity is more akin to a learned skill than an innate quality. On this auspicious occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi, we aimed at giving the future generation of budding artists a platform to explore their creative side. We also aimed at educating the children and spreading awareness about sustainability and eco-friendly products which is the need of the hour.”

Rajendra Kalkar, President (West), The Phoenix Mills Ltd said, "We are certain our customers will get inspired by this exercise and influence sustainability in their own circles.”
