Heart rending scenes.Hindu religious ceremonies should get larger allocation of funds for building safer temporary structures.More volunteers should be deployed to regulate such big crowds.This is a tragedy beyond words.
Shocking photograph of lifeless children and women who have died due to the unfortunate stampede.
I've spent over three decades in Bihar. Never such tragedy befell the innocent people on this occasion.
With careful planning and crowd control at the venue of Chhath, the tragedy could be averted. Administrative failure seems to be behind the incident.
My prayers are with the members of the families who have lost their near and dear ones on an occasion they considered auspicious. Auspicious day has turned out to be tragic.
Let the departed soul respect in peace.
