A video of Puducherry is going viral on social media. In this video, a boy is walking in a pit of coals. While walking in the pit of embers, he falls in it. This video tells of the Agneepath ritual organized at Draupati Amman temple in Puducherry. This temple is located in Nettapakkam of Pondicherry.
It is said that the Agneepath ritual was held on May 20 at Draupati Amman temple in Nettapakkam. Many people from nearby villages participated in this ritual held every year. Devotees gathered in large numbers showed their devotion and faith by walking on the coals, filling in the pit and wishing for the fulfilment of their wishes.
The devotees were crossing the pit by walking on the coals. There was a boy in it too. The child suddenly fell on the coals while crossing the pit by walking on the coals themselves. He was only a short distance away from crossing the pit when he fell. As soon as the child fell, the devotees present on the spot ran towards the child. People immediately pulled him out of the pit of coals.
This video of a child falling while walking on coals is becoming increasingly viral on social media. Notably, this is the second such incident. A similar incident happened in Trichy as well. Recently, in Trichy, a man crossing Agneepath with his grandson fell into a pit of coals. He was seriously burnt in this incident.
