Most of the temple entrances in our state are mobbed with beggars and hawkers all around traumatizing a peaceful darshan of the Lord.

I don’t understand the reason behind the municipal administration and HRCE remaining silent on these issues instead of mobilizing an active beggar rehabilitation programs for the beggars at the temple vicinity. Also why not abolish hawkers and regularize sale of pooja items through temple authorized shops. This will ensure quality and avoid overcharging of items.

Also some temples even famous like Mangadu do not have secured footwear keeping counters. We need to keep footwear at our own risk in unattended racks.
