How Neha Joshi Essaying Yashoda In Doosri Maa Felt On Reaching Hrishikesh

The Ganges holds more than mere sanctity; it pulsates as the very essence of India. Devotees beseech this sacred river for blessings of prosperity. During Ganga Dussehra, multitudes of radiant lamps adorn the coursing waters, invoking serenity and benevolence. With unwavering enthusiasm and zeal, this festival is joyously celebrated across various states where the Ganges flows.

On this occasion, &TV artists Neha Joshi (Yashoda, Doosri Maa) talks about the significance and rituals associated with the festival. 

Neha Joshi, essaying Yashoda in &TV’s show Doosri Maa, shares, “Ganga Dussehra, also referred to as Gangavataran, signifies the commemoration of the divine descent of the holy Ganges from heaven to earth.”

Neha said this festival is predominantly observed in states such as Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal, and Uttarakhand. Devotees gather at the banks of the Ganges, engaging in sacred rituals and offering aartis to the revered river. Immersing oneself in its waters on this auspicious day is believed to purify the soul and alleviate physical ailments.

Neha Joshi said, “Recently, I had the opportunity to travel to Hrishikesh for a performance, where I was captivated by the enchanting beauty of the Ganges. It was a dream fulfilled as I witnessed the mesmerizing Ganga Aarti for the first time, lighting a lamp and offering it to the divine river.”

Neha said shooting in holy cities like Haridwar and Rishikesh brought immense joy. She said numerous locals shared tales of the grandeur with which this festival is celebrated there. Someday, I aspire to revisit these places during that time, immersing myself in the vibrant festivities and experiencing the true essence of the celebration.
