Meerut: In a rather strange move, members of Shri Ayutchandi Mahayagna Samiti in Meerut have decided to burn 500 quintals of mango wood in a nine-day-long ‘mahayagna’ to “reduce pollution”. Mango wood burnt after pouring ghee made from cow milk helps in reducing pollution. But there is no policy under which a probe can be issued in the matter - so there is little that we can do.” It will also have 108 hawan kunds (where fire is lit) with 350 Brahmins performing the rituals. A 125x125 square feet yagnashala (where priests sit to perform the rituals) has been prepared in Bhainsali ground here for the event starting March 18.
