Like every year, a large number of pilgrims has started coming this year too for blessings of DeshDevi Maa Ashapura. Simultaneously, many service camps have also been set up for serving pilgrims.
This year also pilgrims were given food, fruits and drinks which created waste; many local organizations have shown concern regarding the waste being littered on the roads. For the same, collective initiatives were taken by an environmental group “Himayati Juth”, an organization “Swaman” and a school “Happy Faces”. Under this initiative, they aimed to minimize littering of waste by placing Dustbins on the road starting from Collector office to Lalan College.
