Making sustainable idols:
The sustainable lifestyle concept space Gāiaa Living, Film Nagar, is offering a two-hour workshop on crafting Ganesha idols, for individuals of all ages, starting from six-year-old children to adults. This workshop will take place on Sunday, from 3.30 pm to 5.30 pm. Additionally, the centre has arranged a thrift gathering and a potluck event at their location.
