Ep. 103: (Visarjan Special Shortie!) Eco-Friendly Ganeshas: What’s that all about?
24/09/2018 by IVM Podcasts
It’s submerjan time! The annual festival celebrated in the name of the Hindu pachyderm-headed God, Ganesha involves dunking decorated idols into water bodies. And while it’s likely that the average Simblified listener is more likely to be listening to a podcast than throwing Gods into the Sea (good name for a novel!), it’s a good time to look at the trend of ‘eco-friendly Ganeshas’. Does a more organic idol pollute less? Is this a fringe trend or something sustainable? Join Chuck, Naren and Srikeit as we take a look. And hey, if you’re running a Visarjan procession – why not blare out a Simblified episode instead of an item number? NEW TO SIMBLIFIED?
It’s an Indian podcast – probably the best to come from Malad West – that takes things that happen around us, and deconstructs them in language you can understand, often surmounting several puns and PG Wodehouse references along the way.

A quick and breezy Simblified episode, from which I discovered that the reason plaster of paris Ganeshas are considered eco-unfriendly is not just because of the heavy metal in the paints; but also because plaster of paris itself is something which anaerobic bacteria feed on and bloom over.
Nothing much to the episode besides that.
