DATTADRI KOTHUR: THE MAN WHO TRANSFORMED GANESHA INTO A TREE
Born and brought up in the chawls of Lower Parel, Dattadri Kothur alias Dattu fell in love with Lord Ganesha the very first time he saw a Ganesh idol. An art director by profession and an artist and sculptor by passion, he has come a long way in discovering his love for making Ganesha idols. He learnt this divine art by helping the artists at a studio in his backyard and then there was no looking back. He believes that Ganesh festival is the celebration of nature and strongly supports the cause of environment friendly celebrations. He has been successfully using the festival as a platform to raise awareness about the problem of pollution. His endeavors have won him accolades every year.

Plan A Plant Organization creative head Sushma explained how useful environmental friendly Plan A Plant Ganesh idols are. The concept is to make Ganesha idols of clay and organic fertilisers. Vegetable seeds will also be mixed in the clay. After the Ganesh idol will be immersed after the pooja, the seeds embedded in the clay idol germinate, turn into saplings.
