Pitrapaksha or pind-daan fortnight, which is set to begin on September 17, is a witness of changing times as large number of people have written to their regular pundits seeking advice on how to perform the ritual online.

Lakhs of people come to Prayag every year for the ritual but this year some devotees have expressed their inability to come to religious centres. They have appealed to their regular pundits to perform the rituals on their behalf on the banks of Ganga

– said city-based priest Sanjay Pandey.

Over 300 persons from different parts of the country have sent details of their ancestors through social networking sites, email or WhatsApp, he added.
