Kamats open historic home to devotees across state

GOA: For 300 or 350 years now, the Mhamai Kamats open their historic Panaji-based home to devotees from across the state to partake of the ‘mahaprasad’ on Anant Chaturdashi. But this year, for the first time in living memory, they will limit the meal and observances on Anant Chaturdashi that falls on September 1 to immediate family members owing to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“A large number of devotees would gather to witness the ‘aarti’ itself. But now, maintaining social distancing may be difficult. Major temples in Goa, too, have restricted even the ‘Shravan Sommar’ observances this year. Hence, we also felt duty-bound during the pandemic to follow the norms,” said Jyoti Mhamai Kamat.
