Gudi Padwa 2020: Celebrations take a back seat amid coronavirus outbreak

The annual traditional Gudi Padwa celebration and the famous shobha yatra (women bike rallies) across Maharashtra will not be celebrated this year owing to 'social distancing' amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Dadar-Mahim area, which witnesses maddening rush ahead and during Gudi Padwa every year, will don a deserted look this year during the festival as all shops will remain shut.

One of the most popular summertime festivals of Maharashtra, Gudi Padwa is considered as beginning of the Hindu calender in the state.

Here's a throwback video of the Gudi Padwa Shobha Yatra of 2019:
