Devotion is more important than celebrating a festival!Lokmanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak changed the way of celebrating a festival with a vision was to create unity in a society divided by castes and religious beliefs. Thus Ganesh festival celebration gave a new dimension to the Indian freedom struggle and the tradition still continues in the country everywhere with religious and patriotic fervor. But Social distancing, wearing a mask, and stay home as far as possible concepts are revolving around and we missed the celebration of various festivals like Ramnavami, Ramzan, Buddha Poornima, Hanuman Jayanti, and Jagannath Rath yatra because of the so-called Coronavirus. Let it be.
Generally, these celebrations would help to accommodate community participation in various forms of concerts, stage shows, intellectual discourse, poetry recitals, and folk dances. It facilitates as a Forum for people from all castes and communities to celebrate together. Although during this critical time such social and political gatherings are not allowed and totally discouraged, devotion and commitment to religious sentiments are more important than mass celebrations.
