    Due to Coronavirus this year Chhath Puja will be celebrated at home. Vadodara Mahanagar Seva Sadan has cancelled the mass program to avoid the transition of the virus. Every year the festival is celebrated with great enthusiasm in the city but this year, as a precautionary measure the corporation has appealed not to celebrate Chhath Puja in public.

    In North India, Chhath Puja is as important as Diwali. On this day married women and men fast and in the evening worship the sun near the bank of river or lake. It is no exaggeration to say that the city has a large North Indian community. Just as each community celebrates its festival with fanfare, so does the North Indian community in Vadodara celebrate Chhath Puja in a colorful way. Every year grand celebration is held on the banks of the river Mahisagar and at different lakes in the city.

    However, this year the situation is different as the city is still in the grip of Corona pandemic and its potential dangers, more than 200 people are not allowed to gather in public. In view of all the circumstances, most of the North Indian families in Vadodara have decided to celebrate Chhath Puja at home.  In the morning and evening each family will end the fast by worshiping in their own home. The Vadodara Municipal Corporation has issued a notification declaring the celebration of Chhath Puja in public as canceled.
