This is what we call creativity at its best. A village in Goa built the idol of Lord Ganesha with bananas. These bananas will later be distributed among the devotees and poor people. A Twitter user uploaded the picture and wrote, "A village in GOA created this Ganpati from raw bananas and bamboo. In 10 days, bananas will ripen and will be distributed among poor people. #ecofriendlyganesha #tummyfriendlyganesha #whatsappwonderbox"
