Corona steals the thunder from the Bonalu festival


Bonalu is the most popular festival in these states of Telangana and especially in Hyderabad. The Bonalu as usually starts from the Golkonda fort. But the Government has suggested that there will be no crowds and music.

There will be no Hungama at all. The potharaju will not be there. The dancing the fun and fanfare is to be avoided to contain Corona. The Temple Committee members will offer the Bonam to the Ammavaru at the respective temples.

No band Baja, only Pooja. The Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao used to attend for pooja at the Mahankali Ammavari Temple in Secunderabad along with the family members every year.

But his time it has to be seen if Srinivas Yadav the minister ca convince the CM and other VVIPs to come to the temple. The Government has decided to make it a low key festival taking the rise in Corona cases into serious account.

Earlier Ramzan was celebrated at a low key, now the Bonalu is being celebrated without any Hungama and there is a chance that there will be no Ganesh Utsav celebrations also in the city of Hyderabad.

The Khairatabad GaneshUtsv Samithi has almost decided that they will go with a small idol of Ganesh in Khairatabad this time taking the Coronainto serious account.
