Of festivals and rising COVID cases in India

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK:

A festival is a period of celebration, typically for religious reasons and is important as it usually centres on some characteristic aspect of a community, its religion or culture.

But in a country like India, people still fail to realise the dangers of mass gatherings even with the rising COVID-19 cases.

For example, around 6,50,000 devout Hindus gathered to bathe in the Ganges on the third day of the week-long Kumbh Mela on Wednesday, April 14.
