In an unexpected happening, the neta (flag) put atop Lord Jagannath’s chariot Nandighosha snapped and fell on the ground while the pahandi of the deities during the Rath Yatra festival in Odisha’s Puri was underway.

As per the ‘Ratha Pratistha’ ritual in the morning, the flag was set up atop Nandighosha. However, it got separated from its position minutes after tying it, possibly due to strong wind flow.

 This sort of incident has never happened earlier. Moreover, Lord Hanuman’s loincloth (Kaupina) is tied to the chariot. Hanuman protects the chariot. Let him protect is sincere prayer.
