As the Amarnath Yatra gets canceled this year due to the covid-19 pandemic, Chhadi yatra was carried today in Kashmir from Srinagar to Pahalgam and Chhadi pooja was performed in Surya Temple.

Devotees from all over the Country joined the yatra and participated in the pooja. They shouted the chants of Lord Shiva and expressed their happiness.

“I’m from Surat. My group of friends is here to attend the pooja. Last year the yatra didn’t happen due to covid-19 but this year we are excited and happy to take Lord Mahadev’s blessings.” said a devotee

The yatra happened by following all the covid-19 precautionary measures by the devotees as well as the priests. They also appreciated Administration’s preparations and facilities.

“Covid-19 is an invisible enemy. Unless we all follow the guidelines, we can’t be safe. Hospitals are meant for cure. The ICU beds cannot prevent us from falling ill. Government has provided good facilities and it’s our role to protect ourselves and maintain social distancing.” a Priest said

In a tragic incident, a woman died after she fell into Aharbal waterfall at Kulgam in Kashmir while trying to click a selfie.

The mishap happened on Friday afternoon when the girl along with her cousin went for some work in a near the Aharbal waterfall. While taking a selfie with the beautiful background, her foot slipped and she fell in the waterfall.

The locals and SDRF team gathered around to save the girl. She was taken to a Hospital in Manzgam where the Authorities detained her for one hour and was later referred to Kulgam’s Hospital.

The girl’s family seemed resented with the Hospital Administration’s behaviour. According to them, she tried making movement but the staff’s delay led to her death.

“The Hospital lacks facilities. Staff wasted time for interrogation and the Ambulance driver abused us. Girl’s life was more important and could get saved if she was treated on time.” said a family member

Many similar accidents have happened in recent times. The selfie trends aren’t important than one’s life. People are requested to take care while doing something like this.
