SEVA DURING RELIGIOUS FESTIVALS

SEVA DURING RATH YATRA PURI-2019

Like Every Year The UTKAL BIPNNA SAHAYATA SAMITI Performed Some NINE Different Types Of  Seva ( Service) During Rath Yatra. But During The CAR FESTIVAL OF  NAV KALEBAR 2015 SAMITI  HAD PERFORMED  NINE DIFFERENT TYPES OF SEVA ALONGWITH  PASSAGE FOR AMBULANCE ( AMBULANCE CORRIDOR) FOR THE FREE PASSAGE  OF THE PILGRIMS  WHO FALL SICK  DURIBG HEAVY RUSH AND TRAFFIC JAM. FROM 2015 WE HAVE BEEN GIVING  THIS SEVA BY SOME 500 VOLUNTEERS OF SAMITI AND RSS. THOUGH IT WAS HIGHLY APPRECIATED BY THE PEOPLE AS WELL AS THE DISTRICTS ADMINISTRATION BUT IT  NEVER CUT THE SIGHT OF THE ELECTRONIC  AND THE PRINT MEDIA.  BUT THIS YEAR( 2019)  IT  WAS HIGHLIGHTED  IN  ALL THE  NATIONAL  AS WELL AS INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC  MEDIA.

SIMILARLY  DURING 2015  IT WAS NOTIFIED BY THE  GOVT TO SUPPLY SOME 50 LAKHA POLYTHENE WATER POUCHES FOR THE PILGRIMS  DURING NAV KALEBAR. THE GOVT HAD ASKED THE ODISHA MINING CORPORATION TO SUPPLY THE WHOLE LOT OF WATER POUCHES.  I MET THE THEN MD AND REQUESTED HIM NOT TO SUPPLY THE POLYTHENE  WATER POUCHES AND ALLOW THE SAMITI TO SUPPLY SAFE DRINKING WATER IN METAL GLASS. THE ANSWER BY THE MD , OMC WAS I KNOW THE POLYTHENE  POLUTION PROBLEM BUT I HAD TO OBEY THE GOVT ORDER. HOW EVER AS DECIDED BY THE RSS OUR VOLUNTEERS SUPPLIED SAFE DRINKING WATER TO THE PILGRIMS  IN STAINLESS  STEEL  GLASS AND AVOIDED THE BANNED  POLYTHENE  WHICH HAS POSED A GREST PROBLEM FOR THE CATTLE AS WELL DRAINAGE SYSTEM.

TO OUR GREAT SURPRISE THE GOVT DID NOT ALLOW ANY POLYTHENE WATER   POUCHES FOR THE PILGRIMS DURING CAR FESTIVAL 2019.

SO IT INDICATES THAT THE DECISION  BY THE UTKAL  BIPNNA SAHAYATA SAMITI/ RSS  HAVE  BORNE  FRUIT AFTER SOME FIVE YEARS. WE HOPE THIS POLYTHENE BAN / RESTRICTION BY THE SAMITI SHOULD ALSO BE HIGHLIGHTED IN THE RATH YATRA (CAR FESTIVAL) 2020 AND IN ALL FESTIVALS AS WELL
