Rotary Mysore to take up developmental work in Pashchima Vahini
“Since hundreds of years, Paschima Vahini is known for final rites, ash immersion etc. Every day hundreds of people visit this place. But absence of minimum facilities including proper maintenance of river bank is creating a lot of problems for the visitors. So we have decided to take up the developmental works,” he explained.
“One of the major issues haunting the Paschima Vahini is poor hygiene and cleanliness. Leftovers of various rituals has made the whole area stinking. So we are planning to built dedicated places where ash immersion and final rites can be performed. Our plan is developing a mechanised system where all the left overs can be collected without human intervention and burnt through incinerators to ensure that the whole area will remain clean and green always,” he explained.
E-toilets and other infrastructure: K R Shantha Murthy also informed that presently even though local administration is collecting Rs. 100 from all those who arrive to immerse ash or perform last rites, they are not providing any basic facilities. “So we are planning to construct solar operated e-toilets beside change rooms for both men and women. Our goal is to ensure that those who arrive to the spot will not return with any negative opinion about Paschima Vahini,” he concluded.
