"Offices will remain closed on October 26 to mark Chhath puja". These have been made for the ease of the people for performing the puja, he told reporters here. "The chief minister will inspect Puja ghats on October 27, while MLAs, SDMs, assistant engineers and junior engineers of the concerned departments will check the preparedness on Chhath Puja ghats on October 26", Rai told reporters.

"Lakhs of devotees will assemble on the Yamuna ghats for Chhath Puja". Offerings to the setting sun, known as Arghya is done on same day. In Nepal, for the Hindus residing in Mithila region, Chhath Puja is the most celebrated festival.

Nahai means to take bath and Khai mean to eat. They then cook "kheer" (pudding) and roti on earthen chullahs, which is then distributed as "prasad". The festival which is dedicated to the sun god and his wife Usha is observed for four days. "Several thousands devotees would gather at different ghats in Surat to offer prayers to Sun God", Bihar Vikas Parishad volunteer KK Sharma said.

During the "nirjala" fast, "arghya" worship will be offered to the Sun god on Thursday evening and again on Friday morning, when the fast will come to an end, the festivities will conclude.

Markets in the city are wearing colourful look, with big bunches of bananas and citrus fruits on sale as customers jostled to buy those in wholesale.

The Delhi administration and municipal corporations are working to spruce up ghats and clean areas around water bodies to ensure the four-day Chhath Puja that begins on Tuesday, goes off smoothly.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal reviewed the preparation of Chhath Puja in Delhi and chose to develop 457 Yamuna Ghats this year for offering Chhath puja.

"This court is of the view that the Delhi government may consider the suggestion made by district magistrate (South) previous year and implement it in the present season", Justice Vibhu Bakhru said. Meanwhile, ahead of the Chhath puja celebrations beginning Tuesday, the Delhi development minister Gopal Rai visited Shyam ghat at Jagatpur in Wazirabad on Monday to take stock of the preparations. Bihar Vikas Parishad volunteers not only cleaned the ghats but also built platforms with the help of NGOs for Chhath Puja, including at Navdi Ovara and Dindoli lake. At the heart of it is the near 20 per cent Purvanchali population in Delhi, which have in recent elections proven key for electoral success, said leaders from all three parties.
