Rohtak, May 11
Even as medical scientists devise ways and means to combat Covid-19, residents of the region are turning to the age-old practice of havan to eliminate the dreaded coronavirus and purify the atmosphere.
Havans are being performed in numerous villages of Haryana to ward off the disease-causing micro-organisms. After performing the havan, the vessels containing the burning havan-samagri are passed through the villages on tractor-trailers to cleanse the environment.
“Community havans have been going on in the villages with participation of the residents. Now, we are organising havans in the urban areas as well,” says Rampal Arya, the president of Arya Pratinidhi Sabha, Haryana. He asserts that havan is a scientific method to eliminate the disease-causing micro-organisms in the environment and can eradicate coronavirus as well. — TNS
