Forum for Durgotsab Proposal for this year
Humanity is under house arrest for the Corona epidemic. But the good news is that the cases are low in West Bengal. Like every year, FFD is giving a few guides for Durga Puja.
FFD proposals are:
- The Pandal should be made as Low-Hight as possible to sanitize the Pandal every day at the authorities’ initiative.
- The Pandal should be made so the Idol can see from the outside. It will reduce the tendency of visitors to enter the Pandal.
- Only 25 visitors will be allowed to enter the Mandapa at a time.
- Masks, hand sanitisers, and thermal scanning are mandatory to enter the Puja Mandap.
- Adequate security measures should be put in place for volunteers.
- Social distance has to be observed in Sandhi Puja, Sindur Khela, Pushpanjali, etc.
