Jagannath Puri Rath Yatra is known to host lakhs of devotees every year. And while we might find it difficult to even move in such a crowd, it is really heartwarming to see people making way for an ambulance.
Around 1200 volunteers and lakhs of devotees at the Jagannath Rath Yatra in Puri created a human corridor for the passage for an ambulance on 4th July .
A video of the same was shared on Twitter by SP Puri and it soon went viral.
