GOA: The immersion of the Ganesh idol is usually a community affair in Goa, carried out at designated spots. But this year, due to the pandemic, many families chose to avoid any risk and carried out the immersion at home.
This year, however, they decided to purchase a barrel, into which the immersion was carried out. “We have a well at our residence. But we felt immersing the idol may lead to the clay settling down in places that could block the source of water to the well. So we decided to do it in a drum,” said Sanjay Priolkar, a pharma consultant.
