Karnataka: Low-key Dasara celebration this year too, as fear of Covid 3rd wave

A new wave of Covid-19 cases has prompted Karnataka to curtail Dasara celebrations to a bare minimum, as it did last year. The historic Amba Vilas Palace and Chamundeshwari Temple will be the only places where festivities and cultural events will take place, and the renowned Jamboo Savari will also take place within the Mysuru Palace grounds. As per the Chief Minister, who presided over a high-level committee meeting when the decision was taken, the Dasara celebration, also known as the Nada Habba, would be celebrated in a traditional but simple manner, just as it did last year.

On October 7, the Dasara festival will be launched from the Chamundi Hills. As the Cooperation Minister, who is in charge of Covid-19 affairs in Mysuru and Chamarajanagar districts, they have permitted the CM to determine who should launch the event this time. The Jamboo Savari will take place on October 15 at 2.45 p.m., he mentioned. Last year, 150 people were allowed to attend the opening ceremony, 50 for cultural activities, and 300 for the Jamboo Savari. they requested that the CM double this amount. However, researchers have predicted that a third wave of Covid-19 will emerge in September-October. So, after September 20, a decision will be made based on the scenario.

As per the Cooperation Minister, if the number of instances increases, the previous year’s limits on the number of people will be maintained. Yuva Dasara, torchlight parade, Dasara film festival, wrestling tournament, Food Mela, exhibition, and other crowd-drawing events will not be held this year. The committee also decided to pay Rs 8.09 crore in bill arrears from the 2019 Dasara celebrations. The government will provide Rs 6 crore for the festival this year. Elected officials who attended the conference urged the government to help retailers, hotels, and rickshaw drivers whose businesses had suffered as a result of the lukewarm Dasara celebrations. During Dasara, the town of Mysuru saw a surge in commercial activity. For the last two years, however, this has not been the case. As the chief minister mentioned, we’ve taken note of their suffering and are considering our options.
