KANWAR YATRA - AN ANNUAL NUISANCE
Dear Friends the Annual Kanwar Yatra is becoming a cause of concern at least for the people living in west UP. The number of participants is increasing year by year. Whole life of these cities comes to halt. Office goers can't reach office in time. All the district administrations and state Governments are trying to do their best to give more facilities to those who participate in these Yatra without thinking about the others who live in these areas. I am not against any religious procession but it's the duty of Government to protect the right of other road users or there must be public as well as under negotiable Instruments act holiday in west UP or at least in three districts Muzaffarnagar, Meerut and Ghaziabad as well as Delhi. The other solution is to construct a parallel road to felicitate the Kanwar carrying People. Due to this yatra just calculate how much petrol diesel is getting wasted in jams and diversions. Apart from this many of the roads where people put tents by cutting and digging roads breaking dividers get damaged and no one bother to repair them afterward. I feel residents of these districts and specially people of Ghaziabad must raise this matter at all available forums to find a amicable solution to this annual problem. more
Dear Mr. Navneet Sarin, I also agree with you on the issue. The Indian Govt. has to pass an ordinance to stop any kind agitations irrespective of any religions, creed or caste. No religion stop you to pray to ALMIGHTY GOD. The God is always in your inner soul, HE never asked you to do so much of hard work or exercise to praise HIM. Just pray yourself in lonely place and remember not to hurt any one of human being by praying yourself. I think that is more than enough to praise the God if you care of a human being. I do not know how many agree on my point of view but that is the way of a life to care all human being irrespective to any religion. We are a developing country, should start thinking positively.

Yes Mr. Gulzar because the person sick/in emergency can be of any cast creed or religion and office goers are from all wake of society. These processions, noise pollution and Even Dharnas/Road Roko Agitations/Rail Roko Dramas by any group or political party harms the interests of ordinary man. And in case of Police actions bullets and lathis generally hit the passerby's and not the real culprits. I feel Government must pass an act to ban all these things as if India and Indians have to grow they have to come forward and discard these rituals. more
I agree with you, it is not related to a single religion. It is applicable to all religions. more
Dear Gulzar you are absolutely right in mentioning the specific instances. I said Govt must stop all these type of religious processions irrespective to which religion they belong, all loudspeakers on top of all the temples and Masjids must be removed. No one should be allowed to arrange any religious gathering on road neither before temple nor Masjid. As I feel we must keep our religion inside the doors of our home and no one should make it a matter of others despise & discomfort. more
Dear Mr. Navneet Sarin, Thanks for writing on the issue which is very very important to understand the Nuisance and pain of the people who get every year. Think of those who are stuck up on the roads whithout any cause. People who are rushing to the hospital to save a mother who gave the birth to a child on the road, think who are to trying to reach the hospital to save the father who died on the road just because oneway traffic at brajghat to morabadad just because of KANWARIS YATRA.
I do not understand what kind of prayer is this, which is making others life miserable. Do you belief that way GOD will be glad to all these exercises? Yes, the God will be really not happy with this HUDDANG, MUSIC DECKS, DRUNKEN PEOPLE, DANCING AND LOUD NOISES. I think Govt. should take appropriate action on this type of yatras or make some special arrangement to devotees which should cause to others.
