Oracle predicts people will suffer with coronavirus pandemic
The oracle (rangam) of Ujjaini Mahankali temple at Secunderabad, Swarnalatha, predicted on Monday morning that people will go through sufferings because of the novel and deadly coronavirus. She delivered her prediction about the Telangana state’s future as part of the Bonalu festival. This time, celebrations were organised without devotees because of restrictions imposed in the wake of Covid-19 pandemic. Speaking through Swarnalatha, the Goddess asked people to conduct special pujas for five-weeks and expressed displeasure over this year’s celebrations. A priest became emotional while saying that celebrations were not on a large scale because of coronavirus.
