HYDERABAD:Renowned seer Sri Sri Sri Tridandi Srimannarayana Ramanuja Chinna Jeeyar Swamy has advised the organisers of Ganesh pandals in the city to maintain the piety of Ganesh festivities and not to play western music or movie songs at the Puja venues or during the idol immersion procession but to play devotional songs.

Addressing a gathering at Hindu Chaitanya Sabha organised by Bhagyanagar Ganesh Utsava Samithi (BGUS) at the Nizam College grounds here on Sunday, the swami also called for keeping the festivities simple and peaceful. He appealed to devotees to spread the message across the state. 

“We all celebrate our festivals but very few of us know the history behind them. Now is the time to learn our culture. Every Hindu must be aware of our rich culture and traditions,” he said.

The Bhagyanagar Ganesh Utsava Samithi also appealed to the organisers of mandapas not to use DJ during the immersion procession. This year, the festivities will begin on September 17 and conclude with immersion on September 27.

As September 17 also marks the end of Nizam rule over Telangana, the Samithi plans to hoist the national flag at all Ganesh mandapas across the city.
