    Celebrate an ecofriendly Ganesh Chaturthi in 2010.

    Immersion of Ganesh idols made out of Plaster of Paris cause water pollution. Toxic chemical paints used on these idols contain heavy metals such as lead and mercury and poison wildlife.

    Make sure you use completely natural and biodegradable materials in this auspicious celebration.

    eCoexist promotes ecosensitive products through socially sensitive means. We have fifteen designs of natural clay idols painted with natural pigments such as turmeric, geroo and multani mitti.

    These can be immersed in a clean bucket of water at home and the water can be poured into plants without any harm to the environment.

    You can see our designs on The idols are available in sizes 10″, 12″ and 18″ in prices of Rs 1200, 1450 and 1800

    Yesterday i called Mala Dhawan to ask about eco friendly Ganesh idols and there she said that she has only 1-2 idols left hence i should be booking immediately or they’ll be gone. So i asked her to book 1 10″ one for me. Today early morning i gave her a call and requested her to cancel my order as my relative got one for me and there she started—-
    ‘its so unprofessional, i got so many calls and i said no because of you and now you have to take it … i have said no to so many clients because of you and so now i leave it upto you what to do with 2 Ganesh ji and she cancelled the call.’

    Thats a horrible way of selling things, if i am unprofessional then so is she, when she had so many clients then why is she keeping only 1-2 idols, definately she’s lying. Maybe she’s not getting clients so this is her way of selling things by insisting that you book immediately………. if so many people are calling her then whats bothering her.

    I agree i shouldn’t have booked but i wasn’t aware that my relative will be getting one for me,it was just a telephone booking i made, i may not even go to pick it up then what will she do, come running behind me……… it was just out of decency i called her but Mala Dhawan is the most ill mannered, uncultured woman i’ve ever had the mis fortune to meet.

    This is a very strange way of earning your bread and butter, even if i take from you this time, Mala Dhawan, i’ll definately not recommend you to ne1 else.

    Buy colorless ganesha without paint and save environment as well as pray to divine god. We do pooja’s for our as well as world’s peace, rite?? In case ur buying a colored ganesha, that means ur destroying or harming his powerfull creations such as water( as it is polluted), plants (incase polluted water is watered to plant) as well as sea animals.

    God’d murthy looks really divine with those colorful flowers.
