Hindus devotional events like Narendra Choudary Tummala Koti Deepostavam and more are paused due to lockdown. Covid pandemic has changed the way people live, communicate and offer pujas to their religious gods. Especially, in countries like India where the people give utmost priority to their religious events and activities. The covid pandemic has completely evaporated the earlier methods of worshipping gods and rituals maintained for centuries and decades.
With the increasing spread of covid, the governments (both state and central) have banned social gatherings in religious places and canceled the most popular religious events. Not only the governments, many people such as NTV Founder Chowdary Tummala have voluntarily stopped most popular religious events such as Koti Deepostavam in order to stop the spread of coronavirus.
Hindus are the ones who give utmost importance to religious festivals, events, and activities. Usually, Hindus participate in various devotional activities such as the nine-day Brahmotsavam festival organized by Tirupati devasthanam, the Ratha Yatra event organized by Puri devastanam, Koti Deepostavam organized by NTV Founder Chowdary Tummala, and more during auspicious days.
During the lockdown that has lasted for more than a year, the hindu religion followers have suffered a lot. In this article, we have discussed a few hindus festivals and religious activities that got affected due to the covid pandemic.
