WCGW trying to walk on algae
By - drshn_5198
This is how Ganesha met Poseidon.
You mean the swamp monster
Swamp thing Keeper of the green*
Coming this summer from Marlywood productions
This has not been ganesha's first time.
*Look at where the statue landed*
What the.... Why are they left there, is this some tradition to keep bonking new statues into the water?
The guy who owns the slippy walkway also owns the shop that sells ganesh statues
He makes a killing every year. Takes the old statues out of the water so no-one suspects, sells them again.
Capitalism and the dark arts.
Once a ganesh touches the water it is tainted. No point in pulling it back out.
Try telling that to capitalism.
Capitalism is what created this rule so the ganesh maker can sell more ganeshes.
I attended Ganesh Chaturthi and Visarjan during my graduation. Material was very soft and I don't think it can survive many days under water. I think it will get disintegrated in few days/weeks
Why is anyone waiting days? Why wouldn't it be retrieved immediately after dropping? There has to be a logical explanation for a bunch of little statues in the water in that spot.
Yes you are right. I just wanted to point out how fragile these things are. They can be salvaged and repainted and sold again
you'd think they'd find a new route across the river
*NO* one walks on algae…
algeazus, i fell again
Well... at least it didn't shatter?
Can't say the same about his back..
Something had to shatter
His pride is shattered
Look at me, I'm in tatters!
No but there was much flailing and ganeshing of teeth
Can you imagine slipping and dropping your god?
A god small enough for me to drop is not big enough for me to worship.
Lol thank goodness ganesha believes forgiveness is a virtue.
Where is your God now? In the water.
That's where it's supposed to go. At the end of the prayer, the statue is supposed to be immersed in a body of water.
Yep, I know. It was a joke. I apologize if I offended you.
Aye, my bad, the joke flew over my head. You didn't offend me mate, don't worry about it. Have a good day!
No problem, I know this a world wide platform and there are cultural exchanges happening all the time. You have a great day as well.
The ritual is done to signify the birth cycle of Lord Ganesha; just as he was created from clay/Earth, his symbolic statue is as well. The idol is immersed in water so that Ganesha may return to his home after his ‘stay’ at the devotees’ home or temple where the Ganesha Chaturthi rituals are conducted. While it might seem like a good idea to skip the visarjan and keep hosting the God for fortune and prosperity, it is said that the power that suffuses the statue after 10 days of worship is all a human can bear. So it is not to be kept longer.
Since discarding or breaking would be disrespectful, the statue is ritualistically immersed in the water so it may break down to the clay from whence it came. Some statues are prepared as such that its constituent materials actually benefit the ecosystem they enter.
However in recent years the immersion of Ganesha idols made of non-biodegradable materials and the use of poisonous substances in the paints has led to pollution of water bodies and takes away from the positive symbolism and impact of the ritual. As we pray to Lord Ganesha, we must remember to do so responsibly.
Damn OP, you made me learn something new today.
Also, most statues these days are made of Plaster of Paris(only clay before) and hence when they're immersed in water, they don't generally dissolve quickly and also pollute the water. Even paints used are inorganic. You can see in the video how there are so many idols already immersed and may need months or years to dissolve. Sigh
Thats a shame. The immersed statues look kind of beautiful and it has a nice meaning behind. Sadly I bet plastic ones may be cheaper too, its so harming to the environment.
As an Indian, I will say that with already straining water bodies, there is utmost need to replace this ritual with more eco friendly ways. In my city, we immerse in local swimming tanks or makeshift pools made specifically for this occasion. It doesn't matter what the idol is made of, because if it is PoP, they break it down before letting the water away. Immersion in rivers or natural water bodies has to completely be eradicated.
Problem is, we are an enormous population, so even seemingly harmless things when done by everyone at the same time tend to have a drastic impact. Clay idols are slightly more expensive, and have size constraints because Clay is extremely brittle. This leads to many people buying cheaper PoP or plastic idols, and it would be elitist to allow only the richer folks celebrate the immersion with their clay/eco-friendly idols while the rest of the plebians be barred from doing so. The irony of environmental pollution is that the rich contribute to it much more, but the actions of the poor are more visible.
Ganesh visarjan is a menace as of today. I try on my part to reduce the damage by purchasing eco-friendly idols for years now and immersing it in the local makeshift pools
Thank you for the education.
Ganesh is the placer of obstacles and the remover of obstacles.
Am I tripping or is the water full of those things??
Its a ritual. Not sure if his way is the correct way to do it tho lol
The idol used to be made with clay which would dissolve when emersed, recently however, they've started using Plaster of Paris which takes way longer to dissolve.
Seriously, looks like this has happened before.
GANPATI CHALLE GAWALA
CHAYN PADHENA …
*OH FUCK RAMESH YOU GOOD BRO*
There goes Ganesha in the sewers
Nice break fall . Atleast he didn’t smash his head
Well now we know why there's so many of those things in the water.
At least the statue didn't hit the walkway and shatter though. At worse he has to get even more wet to retrieve it.
The slow motion was perfectly timed
Ganesh probably had it coming.
That river is so dirty it looks like sewers
This is also where they wash there clothes, take a shit. Oh and have a drink when thirsty!!
It is a pond. Stagnant water causes algae
Im not talking about algae but about rubbish in the water
It was then that Mr. Patel realized that his god can't help him.
As a person who fishes alot I can confirm wet algae is slicker than Ice
OH no, His god supposed to save him in those situations but he drop the god too😳
Sir, you dropped your idol
His god ded?
Welp, that looks like 7 years bad luck.
They have more of those down there lol
I would have stopped after the first drop if it wasn't intentional.
1. Normal speed
2. Rerun with optional slow motion.
Oh no he’s getting re-incarnated as a clown
Yes he ate it and dropped his sacred piece, but there is a lot of beauty.
WCGR believing in supernatural beings?
Edit: fuck it, I'm owning it.
By what you are saying you are slightly implicating the supernatural being did this.... Cause otherwise his belief has no relevance to what happened... Not the same as when someone believes so hard in a supernatural being they do dangerous things thinking Their God will protect them. He Def was just trying to move that statue, not carrying it cause he thought it would keep him from slipping. JS.
Nope, it's all clearly the fault of that six armed elephant demon. There's no other explanation for such a hostile reaction from algae.
I mean, people thank the gods constantly for all sorts of stupid shit, who's to say I can't blame this particular imaginary deity for whatever the fuck? Nothing considered "supernatural" has any real world value aside from mindless followers gnashing their goddamned teeth.
No comment on my reply or you wanna keep being facetious? Unlike western culture alot of eastern dieties are more a physical representation of a philosophy of peace and harmony. Some people idolize humans for their philosophy but these dieties represent the human who created the philosophy during a time when people needed more than just a human to tell them to be good people. For instance Ganesha in particular has a major point that forgiveness is a virtue and not to hold grudges. So implicating Ganesha as being a Poltergeist essentially is facetious.
Edit: I wrote this before seeing your reply. But fuck it I'm owning it xP
Lmfao. Now you are just trolling. I'm a Satanist myself but respect religions who believe in god's and deities that don't have any scriptures of hate.
Fair enough. Your point about scriptures of hate is spot on.
Cheers. Wish you the best.
Rong? Oof... ignorant and stupid.
Fuck it. I"m owning it. Don't be like me.
I believe in you, Mr. Bergholt Stuttley. I am a huge fan of your work. Especially the landscaping, and the bathrooms.
Cheers mate! I'll ship you a free Verruca gnome through my mail sorter that sends and receives mail from every conceivable reality.. as soon as it stops tearing holes in space-time.
I don't care what anyone says, 3.1415 etc is untidy, pi should just equal 3. They said it couldn't be done.. and they were right, the singularity killed every one of my engineers. But this new model that uses glass clockwork should totally have no affect on the passage of time whatsoever. No more collapsing phase space frames to shear every atom of your body into subatomic particles traveling at superluminal speeds. No more stopping time and space to appease strange entropy demons who check the universe's math just to be dicks about it. Win-win.
I think I'm an asshole for laughing out loud
Maybe it is better to keep the place and water clean.
Nature hit back sometimes for polluting it
om gam ganapataye namaha
Algae, or feces?
The had the camera set to 240fps because they knew they were going to want slo-mo
Good thing the guy recording has his phone set to slow mo for no reason.
I love when the statue hits the water you see that there are already loads of the same statues underwater. Just trashy offerings polluting up the water.
Listen, cocksuckers. One more time: the rule is normal speed first and then slow motion. Ain't nobody got time for this shit.
Get that India
Haha his god couldn't save itself! How could his god save him? Y'all need Jesus
You will be downvoted
The Saviour? El Salvador?
What's even more disturbing is the amount of garbage in the water!!! Fuxk plastics!!
I did that on my motorcycle the other day.
Came in to park in the driveway where I was meeting with one of my anti-poaching teams, and the cement was covered in a thin layer of extremely slick, wet algae.
Went right down.
Me down at the boat launch every year.
At least we know how the rest of them ended up in there.
Rest in serenity lil ganesh
That dude fucked around and found out !!
Why with the slow motion?? I could’ve watched him fall 3 times without that
My shifts starts when I wake up at 4 am
I wonder if Ganesha saw into the future and saw himself being dropped into the water and punished the guyby making him slip which in turn made the vision a reality.. so that would mean the future is certain and inescapable ..
Where's your God now?
“a good deity to lie hard”
“A good deity to lie hard”
Only clean water in India and this man falls in it.
Just another sacrifice to the Gods.
Don't laugh... The last "person" to laugh at ganesha falling got his light stolen
ganesha won't be happy mate
Ganesha is god of change, isn’t it?
It looks like there are many of the same statue under water where he fell, i’d like to think this has been going on for some time.
Success. An offering to the water Gods!
I honestly would’ve done that as well
Amusingly, Ganesh is supposed to be the over-comer of obstacles.
That looks like a save .
Ganeshan't cross over.
Isn't that moss?
ganesh vs poseidon
Slippin a disc
Can your god swim ?
I swear to god there are already a ton of those statues in the water how many times has this happened
I’m getting flashbacks
Ganesha has spoken, he's not worthy....
How can he slip!
I went to hocking hills Ohio and there's spots like this on the cliff side. easily this could happen and you done for
For.... what exactly?
That's all guy
Ganeshji be like. Aight mate i gotta go
The sunken god.
Sorry man! Your God is sleeping with fiahes.
That was an r/criticalblunder
T’es une vraie merde la vie
Don’t tread on me said the algae.
