Vishwakarma Puja 2011

  This year also we celebrated Vishwakarma Puja with great enthusiasm and enjoyment. Program was short and simple; in fact this was our second Vishwakarma Puja since the plant become operational. We started at from Gurgaon at our usual time and reach Bawal by 9:30; we were surprise to see the wonderful arrangements done by Sudhir & team. Program started with Havan followed by Arti. After puja wonderful cultural activities were presented by my colleague and their kids. Harender’s 4 year old son was center of attraction. Program was concluded with prize distribution and delightful Chole & Puri.

Special thanks to Anurag for his excellent anchoring.

Some thing from life of Vishwakarma:-
There is also a story behind the construction of Golden Lanka. When Lord Shiva married Parvati, he asked Viswakarma to build a beautiful palace for them to reside. Vishwakarma put up a palace made of gold. For the housewarming ceremony, Shiva invited the wise Ravana to perform the "Grihapravesh" ritual. After the sacred ceremony when Shiva asked Ravana to ask anything in return as "Dakshina", Ravana, overwhelmed with the beauty and grandeur of the palace, asked Shiva for the golden palace itself. Shiva was obliged to accede to Ravana wish, and the Golden Lanka became Ravana's palace.

Baba Vishwakarma Ji Ki Jay!

Good night....
