I am shocked about corruption at this temple. Struggle against corruption needs to be come from common devotees.

Just to quote - India has history of struggle against religious place corruptions. In 1920s, Sikhs organized struggle against corrupt Mahantas which ultimately led to democratization of Gurudwaras & establishment of Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee.

Hindus need to be progressive. Democratization of our temples & ensuring equal entry to all sections, transparency of accounts are needed. Temples are central to Hinduism. Temples should give divine, peaceful & adhyatmik feelings to all. Not corruption & commercialization.

its a great decision by Calcutta High Court. Now, visitors can worship in the Temple without any difficulties..and without tension of Pandas...

Finally,the problems of devotees reached into ears of administration i.e. the Calcutta High Court ,has taken a very nice step to channelize the devotees for peaceful and calm darshan of Goddess Kali,but question or the issue that pinch my mind is that courts order will used only for hearing or will be reflected in management and action of temple committee ,i have no idea whether so called panda will listen and do scrupulously as ordered by court or they will find loopholes and will use that to their benefit.Only way to ensure decorum and order in temple is to make people aware of the fact that in Temple they must respect the belief of other devotees,to should not push or pull ,on their way to darshan. Panda no doubt exacerbate the situation by forcefully compelling devotees for huge offering and to push them out if they fail to offer those pandas rather than Goddess Mother Kali.

Hope of fair,fearless and impartial justice aids in survival of this scam and scandel rich country.

Its indeed a very good decision by Calcutta High Court. Hope to
see the suggestions implemented well in practice. Having been a
victim myself of the harassment of the temple priests in the year
2010, it is highly pleasing to see order in places of prominence
and worship. The highly unorganized kali temple loses its charm
the moment we enter into it. Crowded by priests, middlemen and
shops, with no cleanliness, no organized way-in and way-outs the
very charm of a place of worship evaporates. It high time to
constitute an effective executive board, organized movement ways
inside the temple and eliminate the money extorting middlemen who
bring sham to such a historical place.
