Giving eco-friendliness a unique touch, Digambar Manikar and his son, Rajesh, have made a one-of-its-kind 22-foot idol weighing 150kg using 30,000 tissue papers at Vile Parle (East). The idol, which stands tall on bamboo sticks, costs Rs 80,000.
The father-son duo has been making eco-friendly idols since 2008. This year, they have trained children between 12 and 18 years from Vile Parlecha Peshwa Bal Gopal Mitra Mandal to create eight idols made using tissue paper – ranging from 6ft to 22ft high – to be unveiled on September 17 at Vile Parle, Jogeshwari, Shastri Nagar, Andheri, and Santacruz.
