New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has refused permission to celebrate Chhath Puja at public places like ponds and river banks in view of covid-19. The High Court upheld the Delhi government's decision to celebrate Chhath Puja, saying that granting permission could prove to be the reason for the rapid spread of Corona virus infection.
Delhi Court doesn't give permission for Chhath Puja:
The Delhi High Court pronounced this decision dismissing the petition challenging the order of the chairman of the Delhi Disaster Management Authority. This order said that this year, on the occasion of Chhath festival, on November 20, worship could not be done in public places like ghats, or on the banks of the pond.
A bench of Justices Hima Kohli and Subramaniam Prasad ruled that allowing people to assemble is to allow the infection to grow rapidly. In today's time, such a petition is far from the ground reality.

This story is from Dewasur Sangram. When the gods were defeated in this war. Aditi, the mother of the gods, worshiped the sixth mother in the forests of the god to get a son. Pleased with the worship of Mother Aditi, the sixth mother gave her the blessings of a mighty son.
After this, this son of Mata Aditi gave victory to the gods on the Asuras. According to this legend, just as the Sixth Mother had prevented the suffering of Mother Aditi, in the same way, fasting on this day and worshiping the Sixth Mother relieve all sorrows.
