During our visit to Puri, Odisha (in end of December 2019) we were given these two bana(ବାନା) s by sevakas as Lord Jagannath’s blessings. It was not known anywhere in the in the world that COVID-19 had started in China and Chinese were trying to suppress the facts from world eyes. We found it very comforting to use those as masks in April 2020 in the peak of COVID-19 (American number death was surpassing 53,000). What a blessing!
Jay Jagannath. May you live long both
