First time in many years, we decided to conduct a Ratha Yatra in Secunderabad. But it so happened that weended up doing two Ratha yatras instead of one, one in Secunderabad downtown and one in Kukatpally area.Both the Ratha yatras were successful beyond our imagination. Next year, we plan much bigger festivals.Herewith we present report of both the yatras.
Secunderabad Downtown Ratha Yatra
On 17th July, Saturday, 2010, it was a pleasant day with clear skies. Nearly eight hundred devotees assembledat ISKCON Secunderabad at noon. Their Lordships boarded the Ratha amidst rousing kirtana and paradestarted. The route was the busy downtown area and police provided a whole contingent. SP Road, Patny, RPRoad, Clock Tower, SD Road were covered in almost four hours. Residents of Secunderabad look forwardto welcome Their Lordships again next year and year after year.
Hundreds joined the parade enroute. Shopkeepers and office workers offered their prayers.

Kukatpally Ratha Yatra
As we know, Hyderabad’s IT Sectorrapidly grew over years and Kukat-pally came up as one of the hubs.This became a city in itself whilebeing hailed as the fastest develop-ing area in Hyderabad.We opened a Namahatta andBhaktivriksa centerand an ISKCONbase for the youththere. Then theenthusiastic devo-tees wanted a RathaYatra and lo and behold..everythingfell in place for one.The date was fixed as Sunday, 25th July 2010 and preparations startedon war scale but the day beforeRatha Yatra it started raining likeanything and on the day of RathaYatra the rains continued withoutany break.The devotees were concerned thatwhether there will be enoughcrowd to even pull the Ratha, giventhe fact that it was first ever Rathayatra in the area.What followed was historic. Threethousand people appeared and itbecame the euphoric rain dance fornext 6 hours.Following are the snippets from thehistoric festival which will remainever etched in the memories of twin cities devotees.
