Global warming Ganesh

The Ganesh (Ganpatti) festival is a Hindu festival which is particularly popular in the state of Maharashtra in India. Shrines to the elephant god Ganesh are set up in public places and worshipped for 11 days. Some of these shrines have a theme which is used to inform the public about an issue, for example public health. This year in Phaltan, one such shrine had the theme global warming, which included pictures of receeding snowlines on mountainous areas in India, and graphs depicting different temperature increase scenarios and resulting damage.
