This incident happened six years back. We belong to pallia and bhandar mekap cult of Holy shrine of Lord Jagannath temple at Puri, Odisha, India. In order to perform worship one tradition is sadhi bandhan which is eligibility to perform worship at Lord Jagannath Temple. Daddy applied for this to Sri Jagannath Temple Administrations a way back in 2004 for him and for me. Sady after so many years surprisingly to an utter dismay temple office has not cleared this.
The application for sadhi bandha of Daddy and me as we inherited this holy pallia mekap eva and bhandar mekap seva but still temple administration not giving permission and provide the same palli to other people illegally and breaking rules and regulation to the suprise of many as well as myself.
The rules and regulations that follows in order to approve this has been taken into due considerations and the pattjoshi suprisingly not giving approval despite sending him letter. When we contact directly to Pattjoshi he abused us and said that we had not repsected him properly but without no reason this has been going on and the file of ours sadhi banda application sometimes stays in the temple office and sometimes not.
Complete mismanagement of procedure inside Sri Jagannath Temple administration office and hen we go to meet the clerk inside office they do not even at the chair of the office and that means we can not find them at the appropriate time and that makes even contacting which procedure to take and in what way file move becomes extremely difficult.
In a way, Sri Jagannath Temple administration, as well as part and parcel of many segments of this not allowing me and my daddy to perform hereditary rights, is a surprising for all of us. Despite appeals to district collector as well as other responsible people the real work of allowing us this is not completed so far. First of all, I cannot find the real reason why the Sri Jagannath temple Administration Office and their staffs are there for what reason?
One can even check there whenever you reach at the office except for the guards at the entrance where you write that you attend the vent no one is there at all at any position and at any seat out there. This is most suprisingly considering that the staffs are paid for this and some even have good salary they are not at seat to serve people and solve their worries.
So even after so many years the file move from one department to the other but without ay fruitfulness as the waiting is there but surprisingly till so far other are performing their sadhi bandhan and continues to do si and this make me surprise even more to the way the working of Sri jagannath Temple Administration at Puri, Odisha, India.
