At a time when religious places have been permitted to reopen in Unlock 1 phase, a temple in Madhya Pradesh has come up with a unique way of worshiping adhering to the social distancing norms.
In the Mandsaur Pashupatinath temple, authorities have installed a sensor in temple bell so that it can be rung without touching it.
According to an ANI report, Nehru Khan, the man who installed the bell said, "We listen to azan, so I thought clanging of bells should also be heard."
The bell works on proximity sensor (able to detect presence of nearby objects without physical contact), he added.

Excellent work done by a true Indian... I think rather than thinking everything with religion perspective, we all must always believe We are one, We are all Indians...— Naveen Rawat (@mavericknavi) June 13, 2020
