Anil Kumar, IPS, Additional CP, Traffic whose idea this was said “many of my friends and relatives in other parts of the country and overseas often told me that it’s a pity that they were unable to be there on the occasion. Also, many elderly people were unable to experience the event save for on Television. So, when I heard about what Kalpnik was doing to help devotees immerse in devotion through VR, I reached out to them and they willingly agreed to shoot and live stream in real time the Visarjan. This is the first time that any Visarjan will be live streamed in VR and I am sure the experience will be Immersive”.
