Nagpur (Maharashtra), Aug 24(ANI): The export of Lord Ganesha idols from Maharashtra’s Nagpur district has registered an increase, as demand has been spurred by Ganesh Utsav.
“We have exported idols to New York, Dubai, Canada. Idols were exported to China for an exhibition,” said Rajesh Churasia, a businessman dealing in idols.
“We get orders through relatives of Indians staying overseas, who are regular clients. Our customers who have gone abroad because of some work also place orders,” he added.
Sculpting of idols begins months before the festival.
The festival will continue for 10 days and then the idols would be taken out in grand processions and immersed in various water bodies. By Sunil Dighe (ANI)
