Due to Covid19 pandemic, while most of the temple in the cities celebrated it inside the premises, the citizen went for creatively celebrating it inside their homes.
Prayas Das Gupta, a film student who waited to capture this year’s pooja in his camera had to stay in. He then performed the rituals on a little beautiful Shivalinga. Prayas said, “Though the situation is different but Indians are always keen enough not to step aback.”
Aparajita Singh who lives in Jankipuram is a mother to her 5year old kid.

That’show they realise its importance and its divinity.” This auspicious month will continue till 5 Mondays until Rakshabandhan.
