Analysis of Water Quality Parameters during Immersion of Lord Ganesh Statues in Hadoti Regions
BOD, DO, COD, TDS, Heavy metals.
Since water contamination of a growing city is always in the rising trend, its effect on the environment has been studied. Considering the above factors an attempt has been made to assess the water quality of Hadoti region of Rajasthan during Ganesh Pooja (Murtivisarjan). Idol is an image of a god which is used as an object of worship. After worshipped, these idols are immersed into water bodies. Idols are constructed by plaster of paris, clay, cloths, small iron rods, bamboo and decorated with different paints such as varnish, water colors etc. which can lead to significant alteration in the water quality after immersion. Paints which are used to colour these idols contains various heavy metals such as Mercury, Cadmium, Arsenic, Zinc, Chromium and Lead. Particularly, red, blue, orange and green colours contain mercury, zinc oxide, chromium and lead, which are potent carcinogens.The study on water quality assessment during Ganesh Pooja in Rajasthan comprises four districts of Hadoti region namely Kota ,Baran, Jhalawar and Bundi To compare the effect of Immersion on Ganesh Pooja on various water resources of Hadoti region samples have been collected a day before, after and during immersion in all four districts. The parameters in the study are pH, COD, BOD, DO, Conductivity, Turbidity, TDS and heavy metals Zinc and Iron. The maximum value and variation in pH and turbidity (only value) noticed in the water of Jhalawar district. On the other side, maximum value and variation in conductivity, TDS and COD found in Bundi district. The maximum value of DO and BOD and heavy metals recorded in Kota, while maximum variation in turbidity also noticed in Kota.
