Daily Sarasvati ‘aarti’ at Pipli on cards

Kurukshetra, January 16

The Haryana Sarasvati Heritage Development Board (HSHDB) has come out with a plan to start daily Saraswati ‘aarti’ at Pipli — on the pattern of Brahma Sarovar ‘aarti’ at Kurukshetra — for which ghats and ‘aarti sthal’ will be developed near the Delhi-Amritsar national highway.

Dhuman Singh Kirmach, Deputy Chairman of the board, told The Tribune, “The Haryana Government and HSHDB have been making efforts to develop Pipli in Kurukshetra as a tourist hub. It has been decided to start daily Saraswati ‘aarti’ at Pipli near the national highway. Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has given approval to the project and a budget of Rs 2.5 crore has been sanctioned. Besides the ‘aarti’ and beautification, there is also a plan to start boating and restaurant for tourists.

“On Basant Panchami (February 14), daily ‘aarti’ will start from Aadi Badri. Within three months, ‘aarti’ will be started at Pipli as well. Pipli will be developed as a major tourist destination on the national highway. A Saraswati museum will also be set up for which we are in talks with the Forest Department as the land which has been selected for the museum belongs to it. The project will not only ensure the development of Pipli but will also increase the beauty of and tourism in Kurukshetra,” he added. — TNS
