    I love Shiva pooja but also we must celebrate at home because where we workship our shiva he will be there only so pray at home and only in temple not on road to fill stupids packet

    i am not interested in this because lord shiv pooja should be only in temple’s
    Not in public places like NTR stadium Or anywhere
    I think it is only for fun purpose they are doing like this
    constructing some 108 feet height shiv
    I think it is one of the work to fool the people and earn a lot of {{{{MONEY}}}}
    I am not satisfy with this kind of earn money
    AND JUST THINK ABOUT IF EVERY POOJA OR FESTIVAL WILL GO ON CELEBRATE ON THE ROADS OR PLAY GROUNDS THE WHAT IS THE USE OF TEMPLE’S
    IT IS NOT DHARMA IT IS ADHARMA

    THANKS FOR READING THIS AND TELL OTHERS ALSO THE IMPORTANCE OF CELEBRATING THE FESTIVAL’S IN OUR OWN HOUSE’S AND IN TEMPLE’S
