Yogi Adityanath To Talk About ‘Mission Shakti’ On The Occasion Of Deepotsav

The Deepotsav celebrations will be held for three days this year

The Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh has effectively woven its Mission Shakti program for women empowerment into the fourth ‘Deepotsav’ celebrations being held in Ayodhya on the occasion of Diwali.

The state culture department has prepared a roadmap for this and has started work on it. The women artists from Uttar Pradesh and other states will dominate the celebrations in Ayodhya.

The all-women Satya Sai Ramlila troupe from Balod district of Chhattisgarh will perform on the occasion. This group not only has women performing all roles in the Ramlila, but it is the women who write, script, compose songs, and direct the Ramlila.

“The idea is to promote women artists at such events and we are doing it. Most of the volunteers who will be involved in the lighting of diyas at the main event held on the banks of the Saryu river will be women,” said a government spokesman.

The Deepotsav celebrations that went on for five to seven days in the previous years will be held for three days this year, in view of the pandemic. Around 5.51 lakh earthen lamps will illuminate the city of Ayodhya on Deepotsav, using up an estimated 29,000 liters of oil.
