Patna- Pandit Dhirendra Shastri of Bageshwar Dam has decided to cancel the sacred Durbar event which was scheduled to start at 11am today in Patna, capital of Bihar. Organizers cited concerns about the expected large crowd as the reason for the decision.
With scorching heat prevalent in northern India, including the state of Bihar, there were concerns about the potential health risks of holding such afternoon gatherings. Due to the health of the participants, the organizers decided to postpone the event.
Pandit Dhirendra Shastri is currently busy conducting Hanumant Katha, which is scheduled to begin on May 13 and end on May 17 in the Naubatpur district of Patna. Narration begins at 4pm daily.
Organizers said attendance on Sunday exceeded expectations many times over. About 300,000 people were expected in Kata, but almost 1 million people turned out for the event. The rally was held in an open space with a pandal layout, where the combination of dust and heat caused health hazards for many.
The unprecedented surge in visitor numbers has prompted organizers to fear even more crowds will flock to Divine Durbar on Monday and the extreme heat poses a potential risk to people’s health. As a result, they made the responsible decision to postpone God’s judgment for the time being.
Further updates regarding the rescheduling of the Divine Durbar event will be provided by the organizers in due course, taking into account prevailing weather conditions and the safety of participants. Top of Form
