First log to be used in construction of the chariots sliced at the saw mill

Cuttack:5/4/17: It is the devotion for Lord Jagannath that has been inspiring the employees of the Government Saw Mill at Khapuria in Cuttack to do a unique service ahead of the Rath Yatra in Puri. The first log to be used in construction of the chariots for the famous Puri Rath Yatra, was sliced at the saw mill with religious fervour here in Cuttack on Tuesday.

Considered auspicious, Ram Navami, marks the beginning of the process to slice the logs in the mill, that are then shaped into the three chariots used by the Trinity in Puri.
