Visit temples to seek blessings and share their festive excitement on social media!
15th January 2021: On the auspicious occasion of the biggest harvest festival of India devotees from across the country flocked to places of worship. Pongal in Tamil Nadu, Pedda Panduga in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, Makara Sankranti in Karnataka and Maghara Valaku in Kerala, this festival with many names has one common significance which is celebration of nature’s abundance. People stepped out to celebrate this spirit, including celebrities such as Aindrita Ray, Anusree, Athulya Ravi and Lasya Manjunath who took to their social media to share their experience with their fans.
To ensure a safe and secure darshan for all, Nature Protect, a range of innovative hygiene products infused with the power of nature, partnered with some of the biggest temples in the country to disinfect and clean the premises. This revolutionary range of products by Hindustan Unilever Limited ensured that the premises at Srikalahasteeswara Temple in Andhra Pradesh, Sri Chamundeshwari Temple in Karnataka, Guruvayur Temple in Kerala and Meenakshi Amman Temple in Tamil Nadu were sanitized using the one-of-a-kind and evolved approach to hygiene standard.
Here’s what the celebrities had to say about their unique experience and celebrations.
On her Pongal celebrations this year, popular Kannada actress, Aindrita Ray, said, “After being home for most of last year, I finally decided to get into the festive spirit and begin the New Year on a happy note at the Sri Chamundeshwari Temple. While the excitement was at an all-time high, I was also extra cautious of my surroundings. What was reassuring for me was to see that the temple was being sanitized by a brand such as Nature Protect that even I rely on in my personal life. I hope everyone had a great Makara Sankranti and I wish everyone good health through the year.”

Tamil actress Athulya Ravi said, “Pongal is the festival of nature and it is great to see a brand such as Nature Protect take care the hygiene needs of the devotees at Meenakshi Amman Temple. It is my family ritual to visit this temple every year and I thought this year we won’t be able to make it. But I think initiatives like the ones adopted by Nature Protect make the entire experience safer and more hygienic without disrupting the celebrations. Wishing all my fans a great year ahead, stay safe guys.”

Popular TV anchor and Telugu actress Lasya Manjunath said, “Happy Pedda Panduga guys. I think this festival is a welcome change to the otherwise grim circumstance we are in. We have all become extra conscious of where we go, what we touch and who we meet, and it was great to see the same concern reflect in the precautionary measures taken at the Srikalahasteeswara Temple in partnership with a hygiene brand such as Nature Protect. While there were a large number of devotees who had come to seek the blessings of Lord Shiva, the crowd and hygiene routine was very well managed that made us feel safe and secure.”

Famous actress of Malayalam movies, Anusree, said, “Glad to have celebrated Makara vilakku at the auspicious Guruvayur Temple. I really had my inhibitions about stepping out given the current pandemic and was quite upset thinking we would not be able to carry out our celebrations as always. However, I was pleasantly surprised to see the efforts made by the temple authorities and a hygiene brand, Nature Protect that ensured that all necessary precautions were taken. From socially distanced queues to spraying our belongings with a germ- kill spray at the entrance, I am glad to see such proactive and conscious efforts being made. The onus to be safe is on all of us and glad to see brands are inspiring us to take this up more seriously.”
