Jamshedpur: The prasadam of Ramarcha Puja done at Saryu Roy’s residence was distributed in thousands of houses in different areas of Mango.

It may be recalled that the former minister cum Jamshedpur East MLA Saryu Roy had performed Ramarcha Puja at his Bistupur residence on Sunday last. His family members and close acquaintances were present on this occasion.
Saryu Roy performs Ramarcha Puja every year on the Purnima of Asarh month of Hindu calendar. Lord Shiva, Lord Rama and his family and those who helped him in conquering Lanka are worshipped on this day.
Roy has been organizing the puja at his residence for the past many years. The Ramarcha Puja at Royś residence usually witnesses the arrival of many VVIPs and VIPs along with a large number of devotees from Bihar, West Bengal, Jharkhand and other states.
Several thousand people receive the prasad which includes large puris and other delicacies. But last Sunday, a very limited number of people were invited to the puja in view of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Roy had announced that prasad would be sent to the people in Seraikela, Chaibasa and various parts of Jamshedpur.
