12/31/2018

Agencies, New Delhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday hoped that this Kumbh Mela of spirituality, which is commencing from January 15, 2019 at the sacred city of Prayagraj, will become ‘Mahakumbh of Indian philosophy and national integration’. Mr Modi, in his 51st edition of Mann-Ki-Baat programme through All India Radio, also wished that this Kumbh of the devotees will become ‘Mahakumbh of global tourists.’ He said it is a great symbol of people’s faith locked up in the fort for hundreds of years, due to which the devotees despite a deep seated desire could not get a glimpse of. Now the entrance gate of Akshayavat have been opened for everyone, adding that ‘I urge all of you to share different aspects of Kumbh and photos on social media when you go to Kumbh so that more and more people feel inspired to go to Kumbh.’ Emphasising on cleanliness, the Prime Minister said, ‘this time much emphasis is being laid on cleanliness during Kumbh. If during the course of this event sanitation prevails along with reverence, then it will lead to a positive message reaching far and wide. This time every devotee will be able to have a darshan of the pious Akshayavat after the holy dip in the confluence. ‘ ‘In the Kumbh Mela, there is a tidal upsurge of faith and reverence. Millions and millions of people from India and around the world congregate at one place,’ he said. The Prime Minister said the tradition of Kumbh has bloomed and flourished as part of our great cultural heritage. This time the world famous Kumbh Mela is going to be held in Prayagraj from January 15, and many of you might be waiting eagerly for it to take place. The process of Sant-Mahatmas converging at the Kumbh Mela has already started. It is a measure of its global importance that last year UNESCO has marked Kumbh Mela in the list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. He also said ,’A few days ago the Ambassadors of many countries witnessed for themselves the preparations for Kumbh. The national flags of many countries were together hoisted at the Kumbh. The festival of Kumbh, to be organised in Prayagraj, is expected to have footfalls from more than 150 countries; the divinity emanating from Kumbh will spread the colours of India’s splendour throughout the world.’ Kumbh Mela is also a huge medium of self discovery, where every visitor experiences a unique feeling and learns to look at the worldly things from a spiritual perspective.
