India is battling a deadly second wave of the coronavirus. Most states have imposed strict lockdown-like curbs to battle the virus that is hammering India. And while Prime Minister Narendra Modi now appealed the Kumbh Mela to be symbolic, the festival had already turned out to be a super-spreader of COVID-19. To control the damage, the Uttarakhand government has restricted gatherings at pilgrim places. Most pilgrim spots are now shut due to the pandemic and now self-styled Godman Swami Nithyananda has banned devotees from India to enter his Island ‘Kailasaa’, a Hindu sovereign nation amid COVID-surge.
