Bhubaneswar: Ollywood actor Sabyasachi Mishra aka ‘Odisha’s Sonu Sood’ has facilitated the transport of the coconut offerings lying abandoned on the street corners or bus stops across the State since the coronavirus-induced lockdown.
Expressing his concern on Twitter about how the lockdown has prevented the offerings from reaching the Lord for over eight months, Sabyasachi stated that it has not only compromised the emotions of the devotees but also hampered the beauty and aesthetics of the cities or villages.
A few of the coconuts have either germinated or rotten making the environment unhygienic. Further, some coconuts which have rolled down to roads are posing danger to motorists, he added. Following media reports, he arranged for trucks and sent the abandoned coconut offerings to the Maa Tarini Temple in Ghatgaon.
“I feel extremely happy that I could accomplish this mission on the auspicious occasion of Kartik Purnima. HAPPY KARTIKA PURNIMA,” stated Sabyasachi.
