VARANAS: This time Gangajal will not be offered to Baba Shrikashi Vishwanath on Nirjala Ekadashi. Shrikashi Vishwanath Kalash Yatra Puja Committee has taken this decision due to the green color of Ganga water and increasing pollution level due to the dumping of sewage from Shahi Nala at Dashashwamedh Ghat.
Convenor Jagdamba Tulsyan told that on June 21, on Nirjala Ekadashi, Baba will be anointed with milk instead of Gangajal. The water of Ganga is no longer fit for consumption. How do we offer it to God? Kalash Yatra will be taken out from Rajendra Prasad Ghat to Shrikashi Vishwanath Temple. He told that even five years ago due to increasing pollution in the Ganges, Baba’s anointing was done with the Ganges water sourced from Tehri. The Kalash Yatra will be presided over by the former Mahant of Kashi Vishwanath Temple, Dr. VC Tiwari. In view of the epidemic, only 25 Shiva devotees will participate in the Kalash Yatra. After worshiping the Kalash at Rajendraprasad Ghat under the tutelage of Acharya Amarkant, the Kalash Yatra will leave for Shrikashi Vishwanath Temple. After the milk ceremony, Baba’s Rudrabhishek will be done as per tradition. On the other hand, Pawan Chaudhary, President of Shrikashi Mokshadayini Seva Samiti, along with his colleagues will get the Kalash Yatra done. During this, Umashankar Agarwal, Keshav Jalan, Mukund Lal Tandon,
