As part of the ninth edi­tion of DNA’S Eco Gane­sha Cam­paign, win­ners from four dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories were fe­lic­i­tated for their ef­forts and cre­ativ­ity in cel­e­brat­ing Ganesh

Chaturthi in an eco-friendly man­ner on Fri­day. The func­tion held at FPH Gar­ware Hall in Ma­ha­laxmi marked the cul­mi­na­tion of Eco Gane­sha 2018, which has grown its reach year on year.

A mu­si­cal ode to Lord Gane­sha marked the begin­ning of the evening which saw the pres­ence of Ac­tor Tushar Kapoor and Ac­tress Di­gan­gana Surya­van­shi who gave away the awards.

The win­ner of the Big Eco Idea was Dilip Palkar of the Amol So­ci­ety Sar­va­janik Ganeshot­sav Man­dal, Mu­lund East.

The ten in­di­vid­ual win­ners were Sa­hana (Be­la­pur), Kal­pana Kar­vat (Kan­di­vali), Salma Me­mon (Malad), He­mang De­vani (And­heri), Girish Wain­gankar (Dahisar), Sachin Patil (Lower Parel), Ki­ran Jan­gir (Powai), Yashesh Sam­pat (Kan­di­vali), Dr An­shu Chauhan (Nerul) and Ricky Mehra (Vashi).

Var­sha Solanki of Tardeo won the award un­der the Selfie with Gane­sha cat­e­gory, which re­cieved a huge re­sponse. The ten win­ners in the hous­ing so­ci­ety cat­e­gory: Kumb­har­wada Mi­tra Man­dal, Shrini­was Ganeshot­sav (Mu­lund), Jawahar Man­sion Ganeshot­sav Man­dal (Charni Road), Bhagwa Ma­hal cha Gan­raj (Ma­ha­laxmi), Shree Bhi­mashankar Sar­va­janik Ut­sav Man­dal (Nerul), Gun­sagar Na­gar Sar­va­janik Ganeshot­sav Man­dal (Kalwa), Shree­rang Sa­hani­was Ganeshot­sav Man­dal (Thane), Shubh Nir­man CHS (New Pan­vel), Bal Gopal Mi­tra Man­dal (Vile Parle) and Yuva Ganesh Ut­sav Man­dal (Vashi).

Recog­nis­ing the fact that sus­tain­able liv­ing is the only way for­ward, DNA had launched the Eco Gane­sha cam­paign in 2010, as an at­tempt to in­crease aware­ness, generate sen­si­tiv­ity towards na­ture and get more peo­ple to cel­e­brate the fes­ti­val in an en­vi­ron­ment-friendly way.
