@lakshmi - If you were point to the unfortunate events happened on the occasion in Puri then we need to understand it’s never an easy task to control a crowd of more than a 1cr. Perhaps we can blame it to the police or organizersor somebody else … but somewhere missed is the self responsibility.

And as far as Rath Jatra is considered it’s the festival of joy, a sacred occasion and perhaps the grandest festival of all. Read more about Rath Jatra
