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.

Gudi padwa/ugadi (India) Beginning of Hindu new year

gudi2

Science behind Gudi padwa,The beginning of Hindi new year,

Gudi Padwa also known as Padwa is celebrated by people across the state of Maharashtra(India) as the Marathi New Year.

In Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh (India), it is celebrated as Ugadi while Sindhis celebrate is as Cheti Chand.

The first day of the Chaitra month of the Hindu calendar is significant for two reasons — it signifies the start of spring and according to the Brahma Puran, after a massive deluge destructed the world, Lord Brahma recreated it on this day.

That explains why the festival holds a special place among Hindus.

The holy bath

On this day, people young and old begin their day with a holy bath and wear new clothes.

Those who reside in the villages choose to take a dip in a sacred river next to the local temple.

This ritual is meant to cleanse their bodies and souls and prepare them for a new dawn.

Traditionally, Maharashtrian women wear a kashta or a nauvari — a nine-yard saree tucked at the back, while the men are dressed in a kurta pyjama and sport a saffron or red turban.

The traditional rangoli

The women of the house wake up earlier than the men and draw a rangoli in the frontyard.

The rangoli is a colourful pattern made from powdered rice, vermillion and turmeric.

In modern times, people also make use of flowers and candles to make the rangoli more attractive.

The rangoli is meant to ward off negative energies and bring in good luck.

Ankita Lokhande wishes Happy Diwali

Flower decoration

Diwali or Dusshera, any Indian festival is incomplete without the flowers.

Likewise, on Gudi Padwa too, colourful flowers are offered to Lord Brahma while the entrance of the house is adorned with bright coloured festoons and flowers.

Flowers signify purity and the fragrance is meant to spread positive energy.

The Gudi

On Gudi Padwa, a new kalash made of silver, copper or bronze covered in auspicious red, yellow or saffron cloth is hoisted upside down at the entrance of the house. This is called the Gudi.

The Gudi has to be positioned in such a way that is visible from far and doesn’t miss the eye.

It’s a sign of prosperity and good things to come.

Some people also hoist a saffron flag to commemorate the victories of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.

In the evening, a procession is held where people unite and perform the lezim to entertain the audience.

The holy prasad

Unlike most Indian festivals where prasad comprises something sweet, Gudi Padwa is one of the few festivals where people are treated to a unique preparation made from neem and jaggery.

The bitter-sweet flavour is resemblant of the journey of life — mixed with happiness and sorrows.

World Theater Day-27 March

world theatre twit.jpg3

When it all had started?

Do you know it all started with Athens,Greece.The concept Theater has originated in Greece.The Greek theater history began with festivals honoring their gods. A god, Dionysus, was honored with a festival called by “City Dionysia”. In Athens, during this festival, men used to perform songs to welcome Dionysus. Plays were only presented at City Dionysian festival.

greek-theatre-9-638

Athens was the main center for these theatrical traditions. Athenians spread these festivals to its numerous allies in order to promote a common identity.

At the early Greek festivals, the actors, directors, and dramatists were all the same person. After some time, only three actors were allowed to perform in each play. Later few non-speaking roles were allowed to perform on-stage. Due to limited number of actors allowed on-stage, the chorus evolved into a very active part of Greek theater. Music was often played during the chorus’ delivery of its lines.

Tragedy, comedy, and satyr plays were the theatrical forms.

Tragedy and comedy were viewed as completely separate genres. Satyr plays dealt with the mythological subject in comic manner. Aristotle’s Poetics sets out a thesis about the perfect structure for tragedy.

 

Here we are…

Greek dramas followed the themes of: fate, temptation, tragedy, and love. Everything circled back to how life should be lived according to their times. It was a way to educate generations on life lessons and to give them tools when they would find themselves in undesirable circumstances.

Greek Drama
Based of philosophical ideas.

ancientgreekcostumes

Modern day dramas focus on what is popular at the time. Ratings and reviews are taken into account, more so than the message that the drama is sending to the audience. Basic morals are shoved to the side and whatever goes. There are few sensors on what is said or performed.

Modern Day Drama concentrates on Solely entertainment purposes.
Available to all audiences.
Viewed in different for TV,Books,Radio.
And the Moral of the story is usually lost.
