Gaya. In Gaya, Bihar, for the next two days, a large number of Pindadani will come from every corner of the country to attain salvation of their ancestors. But the way for Pind Daan to go from Maranpur to Akshayvat is very bad. Local people told that Budco had dug the road for drinking water supply four-five months ago and left it like this. Due to the rainy season, the entire route has become muddy, making it difficult to pass through this route. In such a situation, the question is that how will the thousands of people who come here to donate Pind be able to go.
In fact, according to the Sanatan Panchang, Pitru Paksha will begin from September 20. In Pitru Paksha, a large number of people come to do Pind Daan for the salvation of ancestors. According to the scriptures, one day’s Pind Daan or 17 days’ Pind Daan has to be done in Akshayavat only. But due to the carelessness of Budco, there is doubt about Pind Daan. One has to travel 10 minutes from Vishnupad temple to reach Akshay Vat. But due to the road not being walkable, the Pindani will have to travel three kilometers to come here, which will cause them a lot of trouble.
A local youth told that the road has been completely closed for four to five months. In the name of laying pipes, work is going on for so long, due to which people are facing a lot of trouble. Along with this, the pilgrims coming during the Pitrupaksha fair will also have a lot of trouble with this. Many times officers come here for inspection but leave after seeing.
Akshayvat at five places across the country including Gaya
Sunil Kumar Dubahlia, the panda of Akshayvat Pindvedi, tells that there are five places in the whole country, Akshayvat, out of which one is in Gaya. For the salvation of ancestors, there is great importance of donating Pind on the banks of river Vishnupad Phalgu and Akshayvat, Pinddanis do Pind Daan anywhere, but in the end, the ancestors come and sit here, and get success here. He told that Akshayavat is related to Mother Sita. It is said that when Rama, Lakshmana and Mata Sita had come to Gaya to perform Pind Daan, such an incident happened that even Lord Rama could not trust him. When both the brothers went to the city to bring the material of Pind Daan, Mata Sita started making rhetoric with the water and rate of the Falgu river. During this, there was an Akashvani that the daughter should give me the pind, saying that King Dasharatha spread his hand. Mother Sita did not have anything at that time, then she gave a pind of sand to Falgu river, Brahmin, cow, Tulsi and Akshayvat as witnesses. After this, when Rama and Lakshman returned, Sita narrated the whole story to them.
But after hearing this, both the brothers could not believe it. That is when Mata Sita asked Falgu river, Brahmin, Tulsi and cow to assure Shri Ram and Lakshmana but all refused. After this only Akshayvat told the whole incident to both the brothers. Angry Sita cursed all four and gave Akshayvat a boon to remain immortal. Because of this, ancestors come and sit here, and from here the ancestors depart.
The road was excavated due to pipeline laying
At the same time, in this regard, Municipal Commissioner Sawan Kumar said that a pipeline was being laid for water supply from Madanpur to Akshaywat and from Kendui to Madanpur. The work of laying the pipeline has been completed. Now the work of repairing these roads is being started. He said that a portable road would be built till the start of Pitru Paksha, after that a permanent road would be made.
Let us tell you that this time also the State Pitrupaksha Mela has not been organized due to the Corona epidemic. But those who come by the government to do Pind Dani, they will not be stopped. However, they will be allowed to do Pind Daan following the guidelines already set by the government.
