Kolkata/IBNS: Amid the Covid-19 scare, website ePujo.in is set to treat the audience with the same charm of being in the Durga Puja pandals virtually.

ePujo.in, the website of Planmyad, has gained all the more relevance after the Calcutta High Court on Monday passed a verdict barring the entry of visitors into the puja pandals in view of the pandemic.

The virtual platform will entail a 360-degree walk-through of over 80 highly acclaimed pandals containing the idols, in addition to exclusive pictures and videos of the entire tour.

The demonstration will feature interesting tit-bits of some of the favourite venues of worship, including some housing societies known for their tradition.

ePujo is also organizing some events like musical shows and performances to keep people entertained on all the days of the festival.

Regarding the initiative, Tollywood actor Tnusree Chakraborty said, "I implore my fans to take the requisite precautionary measures and maintain social distance during this festive season.

Celebrate this Puja safely and responsibly! I wish all my fans a happy, blessed, and safe Durga Puja. I request my fans to enjoy this year’s festivities with e-Pujo.."

The concept initiator Nipun Kochar said, "We want to embrace the warmth and happiness that the festival brings with it, without risking our lives. Thus, this idea germinated from a deep-rooted concern for the people of our country.

"We are going through a tough time, and this initiative will ensure we derive maximum satisfaction while keeping safety as the priority."
