Jamshedpur: The Surya Mandir Committee at Sidgora has successfully completed preparations for the upcoming four-day Chhath Mahotsav, as announced in a press conference held within the temple premises on Thursday. Bhupendra Singh, the Chairman of the Temple Committee, shared details of the vigorous efforts undertaken at all levels to ensure the success of the grand Chhath Mahotsav.
As part of the preparations, the entire temple complex, including the Sun Temple Pond, has undergone painting and cleaning to enhance its visual appeal. The pond, once cleaned, will be filled with clear water to create a transparent and pristine environment. The temple committee aims to make the surroundings radiant with attractive lighting both inside and outside the pond. In addition, colorful flower decorations will adorn the Sun Temple on the occasion of Chhath Mahotsav.
Volunteers are committed to remaining actively engaged in serving Chhath fasts and devotees. Similar to previous years, the decision has been made not to sell puja materials at a profit or loss. On November 18, free puja materials will be distributed among eleven hundred economically disadvantaged fasting individuals. Workers in the eastern region have been tasked with identifying and compiling a list of economically weak fasting people in their respective areas for this initiative.
The Sun Temple Committee is fully prepared to organize a grand cultural evening as part of the Chhath Mahotsav. The program, scheduled for November 19 at 7 pm, will feature performances by renowned folk singer Nisha Pandey, Sur Sangram winner Mamta Raut, and local artists. Invitations have been extended to the public, and Odisha Governor Raghuvar Das will be the chief guest at the event. Committee members, including patron Chandragupta Singh, president Bhupendra Singh, convenor Kamlesh Singh, and media in-charge Pramod Mishra, were present during the press conference.
