Ashadi Ekadashi: Sankarshan Karhade Prays For A Contagion Of ‘Devotion’ For The Ekadashi Next Year
Actor, director, and poet, Sankarshan Karhade always makes it a point his musings entertain, educate, and stimulate your thoughts. The actor recited a few verses for his fans that inspired hope as well as provoked thoughts.

The world is presently struggling with a pandemic claiming its stake over millions of lives. Amidst this global crisis, the Pandharpur Vaari of Ashadhi Ekadashi is also restricted. While at this time every year, thousands of worshippers of Lord Vitthal walk towards Pandharpur, this year the temple will be relatively empty. Sankarshan has spun a poem around this that conveys immense devotion. He thanks the deity for emerging as healthcare, sanitization, and security (police and military) workers in the face of a crisis. He says the Vaarkari’s (the devotees) will give God some rest this year and not visit. For the next year’s Ekadashi, he prays for the contagion of ‘devotion’ in Pandharpur.

Catch a glimpse of the poem here:


Meanwhile, on the work front, Sankarshan Karhade will be seen in the play Tu Mhanshil Tasa, starring Bhakti Desai. Prashant Damle, Prasad Oak are going to joining hands to present the story of a funny couple played by Sankarshan and Bhakti. The show is on a standstill due to lockdown for theatres and cinema halls but the initial shows had a huge turnout of Marathi theatre fans!
