    What's the point of any religious blessings when the same is afraid of covid

    Why do people have to hold ceremonies for taking over of duties? Isn't it something personal and official? Few years ago it was only the ministers who held such ceremonies. But now, ministry secretaries and department heads have started. Can't we stop these useless things even at a time like this?
