The Palkhis of Sant Dnyaneshwar and Sant Tukaram will be arriving in the city this weekend and taking halts before they proceed to Pandharpur and considering the huge number of devotees participating in the procession, the Pune Municipal Corporation has decided make use of technology to reach out to devotees. In order to provide information about facilities to thousands of devotees, the PMC has launched a mobile application and a dedicated website.
The app and the website was launched at the hands of Pune mayor Chanchala Kodre on Wednesday. The Palkhi procession popularly known as Wari will be arriving in the city this weekend and it will take halt for two days. Considering thousands of devotees pouring in to seek blessings, number of volunteers offer their services for the devotees. " These services include mobile health services, making arrangement for food and water for devotees, shelters but many warkaris who come from outside, do not know whom to contact regarding these service and therefore the website and app has been launched which will give such details to devotees," Kodre said.
Not only it will be helpful for devotees, it will be useful for the volunteers who can have better coordination with each other in terms of providing services.
Members of laughter clubs, family planning association, students of National Service Scheme and other private companies employees will be working as volunteers to provide these services to devotees.
