Eco-friendly festivities: artificial Chhath Ghats in Siliguri

Nov 01, 2019 14:48 IST

To give an eco-friendly twist to the 4-day Chhath Puja celebrations, organisers in Siliguri are creating artificial ghats. About 130 ghats will be created in the Gandhi Maidan area. Over 11,000 earthen lamps will be lit on the evening of 2nd November and the organisers hope to recreate the original atmosphere. The move comes after the National Green Tribunal banned performing of rituals in the river to prevent environmental damage.
