When are the curtains coming down in your house?
Double curtain rods are coming down as India celebrates the birth of the new year.
According to reports, the curtains are coming up around the clock as India celebrated the birth anniversary of the country’s first king.
The curtains are already coming down for the first time in two decades, as India prepares for its first full moon of the year.
“It is a big day.
This is the most important day in the history of India,” an official of a local hotel told NDTV.
It is the first full-moon in more than 200 years.
In recent decades, the country has experienced a steady decline in the number of people who visit temples and holy places in a bid to curb public drunkenness and religious unrest.
On December 31, 2018, India witnessed the longest period of total darkness in a century, and has experienced more than 10.5 million deaths from road accidents and other causes since the beginning of the month.
