Rain dampens Diwali celebrations


Diwali has arrived!! We know you can’t keep calm. More than anything else, you must be excited to gorge on delicacies and flaunt your ethnic style. Aren’t you?

But, heavy rain is likely to dampen the festive buzz around Kali Puja and Diwali in the state, as a low-pressure area, currently located over Odisha, is set to bring an intense bout of heavy to very heavy rains over the eastern and northeastern states of India in coming days.

Preparations for community Kali Pujas and final touches to pandals and clay idols of the goddess are underway in full swing in the state, but the forecast of downpour for the next three days could play spoilsport.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) also forecasts that isolated places over Assam and Meghalaya will experience thunderstorms accompanied by lightning and gusty winds (with speed up to 30-40 kmph) over the next 48 hours.
