Unable To Visit Durga Puja Pandal? This Samiti In Bhubaneswar Is Live-Streaming Rituals
Bhubaneswar: The Bomikhal Durga Puja Committee, which has created a replica of Mysore’s Lalitha Mahal at its pandal in Odisha’s capital this year, has made arrangements to live-stream puja rituals on social media.
The Durga Puja rituals are being live-streamed from Mahasaptami onwards on the Facebook page of Bomikhal Durga Puja Samiti for devotees unable to visit the pandal.
The replica of Lalitha Mahal is about 120-ft wide and 80-ft long. The puja committee has spent about Rs 40 lakh on pandal decoration this year. Around 30 craftsmen from West Bengal led by Tapas Chandra Bhuyan were engaged in preparing the pandal for more than one month.
“We will be celebrating the 59th Durga Puja this year. As Dussehra is being celebrated after two years of COVID restrictions, we have made preparations for a grand celebration,” chief advisor of the committee Sukant Pradhan told Odisha Bytes earlier.
Around 3,000 devotees will be offered prasad on Mahaashtami day.
