Art apart

City student Viraj Gapchoop has found a place in the Limca Book Of Records for the second time, courtesy his eco-friendly Ganpati idols. The concept of environment friendly idols came to this 14-year-old four years ago, when his family were planning to celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi four years ago. Unable to find any readymade eco-friendly idols, Viraj set about making them using natural white clay. The decoration of the idols were done using natural colors like indigo, coal, altha and turmeric and a silk cloth and china clay gave it the shine. Viraj, a student of Jnana Prabodhini, first came into the Limca Book Of Records after he collected Rs two lakh and donated it to an NGOs that works for orphans.
