விநாயக சதுர்த்தி வாழ்த்துக்கள்
Ganapathi bapapa moriya….
It’s My B’day, I am getting ready……….
Shot at Kusapet, Chennai. A typical north chennai locality with small streets and with huts and mud houses near Purshawakkam. People over there were very friendly and cooperative when I went with our Chennai Weekend Clickers team. Its well-known for making huge statues for Ganesh Chathurthi Festive. Residents of Kuspaet are basically potter, hence its also called Kuyavar Pettai. Ganesha statues of different sizes are made here from a month or two before the festival.
 
The small ones are made of clay and huge statues were made of “Plaster Of Paris”. Since the Govt has banned the use of making Plaster Of Paris statues, as it contaminates the water bodies, when the statues are dissolved in sea after the festival. Nowdays these big statues are made of some paper raw materials. These paper statues are not made at kusapet, however the sales still happens there, which retains the pride of the place.
