One of the Biggest astronomical events ever

The peak of this year’s Perseids meteor shower has just passed. It happens when the Earth passed through the orbital path of the Swift-Tuttle comet, and is only visible from the Northern Hemisphere. Some reports circulated the Internet claiming this year’s Perseids would be “The Greatest Meteor Show of All Time”. That was largely fake […]

To view more of my photography please click on http://www.rakmilphotography.com There has been a long-standing debate between those in favor of color photography and those in favor of black and white. To my mind each has a place and as noted in an earlier post, sometimes the same photo in black and white is a […]

Be yourself

“The more you love your decisions, the less you need others to love them.” ~Unknown Yesterday, Phineas decided it would be a good idea to roll in goose poop. It wasn’t. Or at least I didn’t think this was a good idea. However, he loved his decision so much that he didn’t care about whether […]

All this Time

I cannot sleep. I was a little girl when the Cuban Missile Crisis scared the wits out of us. I was in second grade, and I still remember kneeling in the hallway of Overbook School as Sister Mary Martin led us in the rosary. I remember my knees grinding into the floor as I recited […]

Is it possible to send Ganpati idols and Diwali sweets abroad?

Ganesh Chaturthi are one of the biggest dates in the festival calendar of every religious Hindu. There are a number of places in the United Kingdom, where Lord Ganesha is worshipped on his birthday.

There is a majority of Indian Households celebrating Ganesh Utsav of 10/12 Days.

We had a number of enquiries last year about sending the Ganpati idols and Decorative items abroad during the Ganesh Chaturthi. Customers had Queries about what kind of Material or Goods are allowed by the Custom Department of Respective countries.

 

For safety reasons or to comply with country specific legislation, there are some restrictions on what you can send through the International courier services.

The countries like USA, UK, Canada ban certain items strictly this is because, The product you are sending may be harmful or dangerous  in their opinion. If you send dangerous goods and do not comply with the applicable terms and conditions and legal requirements then the Good could be disposed.

 

Each country maintains its own list of prohibited and restricted items. First of all these restrictions are imposed due to the security reasons.

In general, Medicines, cosmetics, perishable foods, animal products (including feathers), wooden objects and plants are either classed restricted or prohibited. Restricted items can still be sent, but may require your receiver to obtain a permit or import license in advance for customs clearance.

The most important addition to your parcel is the customs paperwork so it needs to be completed precisely and accurately.

The Ganpati idols can still be sent abroad but the idol needs to fulfill some sort of requirements like the Idol should be Eco-friendly and shouldn’t made with POP. POP idols may cause pollution as the other nations do not provide separate pools for Ganpati Visarjan like our Country does.

There is a danger of Breakage while carrying the Eco friendly idols as they are made of Soil mainly. Apart from this,UAE have sent several items abroad on number of occasions which are essential for Ganpati Decoration.

 

Unique Air Express provides shipping services for Ganesh idols and Decorative materials such as colorful Traditional Cloths, Vibrant Sarees, Chunaries, Fetas, Small Lanterns, Makhars, and many others all across UK, Ireland & Europe. Unique Air Express has its own import License so that they can provide custom clearance to these kinds of Goods on priority basis.

They have just finished the Mango season and are back here again for Ganesh Festival followed by Diwali with a Brilliant Worldwide Network and Expertise Staff with a stunning 15 Years of Experience to serve their Clients a better service and Experience.

 

This is how the Life goes on….

I have spent a long time, over the years, watching lives drawn on screens by a moving point of light. Watching those monitor, I couldn’t help comparing them to the video games my sons used to play where their on-screen characters had a life-counter. Nor could I help thinking how closely the human heartbeat resembles […]
