Pujya Swamiji shares that by Kumbh 2021 woodless havan with cowdung patties would be propagated widely across the region and inspiration to make all our festivals and celebrations clean and green by reducing our carbon and water footprint. In this way, He adds that trees would be protected, the cow dung would be properly utilised, waste would be reduced and Mother Nature would be preserved. He added that in context of Holi falling this year during the time of World Happiness Day, World Forest Day and World Water Day that only by protecting our Nature and Culture can we truly be happy, healthy and thereby protect our collective Future.
