News from Uttar Pradesh:

Work continues on war footing to complete Kashi Vishwanath corridor project by August 2021.

Construction work to complete the ambitious Kashi Vishwanath corridor project by August next year is in progress on a war footing, authorities said.

Nine of the 24 buildings to come up as part of the project have started taking shape with over 2,500 workers engaged in the construction.

The project is aimed at the expansion and beautification of the Kashi Vishwanath temple which will ensure visibility of the temple directly from the ghat. It is being developed on an area of 5 lakh sq ft.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had laid the foundation of the project worth over Rs 1,000 crore on March 8, 2019.

The corridor will be equipped with several facilities for devotees. There is plan to install a big screen TV on the ghats for live streaming from the Kashi Vishwanath temple so that the devotees may have ‘darshan’ of the deity soon after taking a holy dip in the Ganga.

NEW SWAMIJI FOR EDANEER MUTT in KERALA

52 YEAR OLD Sachidananda Bharati, the nephew of Kesavananda Bharati, was anointed as the pontiff of the 400-year-old Edneer Math in Kasaragod on Wednesday.

Sixteen seers and representatives from various maths and temples attended the Peetharohanam ceremony, said an official of Edneer Math.

Sachidananda Bharati — formerly known as Jayarama Manjathaya — was initiated into Sannyasa by Kanchi  Shankaracharya Vijayendra Saraswathi in Kanchipuram on Monday. The Kanchi seer christened Jayarama as Sachidananda Bharati.

The Edneer Math was catapulted to the firmament of law when in 1968 its previous seer, Kesavananda Bharati, moved the Supreme Court challenging the constitutionality of the Kerala government’s Land Reforms Act. He was only 19 then.

The seer lost the case, but his writ petition led to the adoption of the landmark Basic Structure Doctrine, which established the supremacy of the Constitution over Parliament. In other words, the Supreme Court ruled that Parliament cannot alter the fundamental structure of the Constitution. The verdict became a part of the law school syllabus.

JUST BEFORE I CONCUDE LET ME GIVE SOME INTERESTING NEW FROM TIRUPPUR-

Residents of Semmipalayam panchayat in Palladam conducted a wedding between two donkeys on Friday morning in an attempt to please the rain god.

Both the animals were decorated with flowers for the event held in front of the Aathi   Vinaayagar Temple in Sami  kavundam   palayam.

Semmipalayam panchayat chairman M Puniyamoorthy said, “The entire village was parched. So, we consulted elders who suggested the conduct of a wedding between two donkeys. They said such an event was held 32 years ago, after which the region witnessed good rains”.

Puniyamoorthy said that the villagers made financial contributions to the wedding. “Within two days, we collected Rs 35,000. We hired the donkeys from Sutharpalayam for Rs 7,000 per day. Priests were also invited to the event, which attracted people from nearby villages. A grand feast was organised and around 400 participants were served food,” he said.
