Indians are currently enjoying the occasion of Ganeshotsav with gaiety. As the idol of Lord Ganesha is brought home, there is a special preparation of food items to mark the festivities. Modaks, a sweet known to be Lord Ganesha's favourite. Not just the God but even his believers love these sweet dumplings with jaggery fillings. While most people make modaks only on the first day of Ganesh Chaturthi, the demand for them is constant. To cater to these needs a Pune-based man named Sanjiv Kulkarni came to the rescue. He has made an ATM but it stands for 'All Time Modak.' Brilliant right? Ganesh Chaturthi 2018: Tips to Make the Recipe of Lord Ganpati's Favourite Modak Healthier This Ganeshotsav. 

The machine is currently installed at Sahakar Nagar in Pune. A user has to insert a special card and they will get modaks, nicely packed in a small box. Although these are not the common ukadiche modak, made of rice and jaggery dumpling but the sweets offered as prasad. These modak sweets are just as popular and Kulkarni has found a good technology.

Take a look at the video of 'All Time Modak' Machine:

Needless to say, people are loving this idea. For someone who doesn't prefer buying the entire box of sweet modaks these single modaks fulfil the need. Talking about his invention Kulkarni was quoted to ANI, "It is ATM- Any Time Modak. You will get a modak through this ATM by inserting a special card. It was an attempt to move forward with technology and culture together." There is a Lord Ganesha idol atop the machine and a slot to swipe the special card. People have appreciated the genius of an idea on social media. Well, what do you think about this idea? Modak lovers in Pune, we are sure you'd be heading to Sahakar Nagar.
