The famous “Kumbh Mela” is going to be celebrated at a very large scale. After 70 years of Independence, It is for the first time that a festival belonging to the Hindus is being celebrated at such a larger scale. This has become possible only due to saviours of “Sanatan Dharma” Prime Minister Modi and UP CM Yogi Adityanath. Earlier, no government has celebrated the beliefs associated with Hindu tradition at such a giant level.
Massive preparations are underway for the Kumbh Mela. Dignitaries from 72 countries have arrived at Prayagraj to witness the preparations for the “intangible cultural heritage of humanity” as recognised by the UNESCO. Under the “Paint my City Campaign” street art is being used to increase the aesthetic value of various sites at Prayagraj.
Apart from this to make the people reach the Mela without any difficulty and ensure more no of visitors attend pilgrimage this year the Indian railways have proposed to run 800 special trains from different stations of Prayagraj. It is believed that this time, many people in the world will be travelling to Prayagraj from every corner of world to participate in the fair of the devotees. Railways have also planned to operate four to five special trains to take the migrant Indians from Prayagraj to New Delhi.
After participating in Pravasi Bharatiya Divas in Varanasi, the migrants will participate in Kumbh Mela in Prayagraj and they will be taken to New Delhi for the Republic Day celebrations. On the special train, 1,400 coaches will be there which will have attractive images, historical structures related to the Kumbh Mela giving people a message about religious gatherings across the country
In addition to this the Central Government has decided to cut off the special fare being received from passengers for Kumbh Mela which will provide the relief to people travelling from all over the India for such spiritual journeys.
Amusement parks and various fun rides will also be set up for the enjoyment of the devotees.The Kumbh Mela takes place every twelve years at the ‘Sangam’, a confluence of the three holy rivers of Ganga, Yamuna and the Saraswati (now extinct. It is a large gathering of devotees and Mela celebrations spread over a period of about 55 days.
This time the whole world will witness the great fair of India.The whole world will see the rituals and traditions associated with Sanatan Dharm. It is a matter of pride for India and Sanatan Dharma.
