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.
