With Ganesh Chaturthi around the corner, a woman is taking with her idol of Lord Ganesha called 'India-Pakistan Border cha Raja' to be placed at a temple near the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir. 

This is not the first time the idol for the Ganesh Chaturthi festival is being transported to Poonch from Mumbai. Kiranbala Isher, also known as 'Ishwar Didi' has been doing it for over the last six years, under the banner of her NGO 'Progressive Nation'.  Isher, whose NGO supports the causes of soldiers, said she installs the Ganpati idol in Pooch for the safety of the soldiers and their families.




"I and my family have special faith in Ganpati Bappa. I come from a family of army background, and this idol of Ganpati Bappa is being taken from Mumbai for the last 6 years. It is one of the important festivals for me, this Ganpati Bappa idol is to be installed for the safety of the soldiers and their families," Isher said.
