Shemaroo Entertainment to live stream Jaggannath Puri Rath Yatra 2020
With mandated restrictions on public gatherings during religious ceremonies and festivals, many devotees are turning to digital platforms for a solution. Taking the legacy forward, Shemaroo Entertainment Limited, India’s leading content house, is live streaming the traditional Rath Yatra from the Jagannath Temple in Puri, Odisha for the third consecutive year. Shemaroo will be streaming Rath Yatra LIVE with all its Telco, DTH Partners & digital platforms: the ShemarooMe mobile app and website as well as the Shemaroo Bhakti mobile app, Facebook page and YouTube channel, at no extra cost.
One of the world’s biggest chariot festivals, Lord Jagannath’s Rath Yatra is usually attended by millions of devotees from around the world. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Supreme Court had mandated that the festival be held without public participation this year. Offering an alternative to the countless devotees, Shemaroo’s live stream will enable viewers to enjoy the darshan from the convenience of their homes on their mobile phones, laptops, Smart TVs and tablets.
The Shemaroo live stream is available from 1st to 4th July 2020 on the below Shemaroo owned properties and will stream the Sunabesa on 2nd July from 3pm to 11pm followed by the Adharpana ritual on ratha on the 3rd of July starting 7pm to 10pm and the final Niladri Bije from 2pm to 10m on the 4th and the last day of the procession.
