on this occasion Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath Said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of converting the West into wealth is being realized by this attempt to make incense sticks from the flowers offered in the temple. This is giving respect to faith. Also, it is also a big step towards women empowerment. Until now flowers offered in temples were thrown or flowed in rivers. This also hurt faith and garbage was also being created.

Mahayogi Gorakhnath Agricultural Science Center and CIMAP have made these flowers a source of income for women. He said that a large number of women will be added in this work through groups. This will enable women to earn a good income while doing household work.This is how incense sticks are made from flowers
After storing the flowers offered in the temple, they are put into a machine and made into dry powder. Then this powder is kneaded like flour and plated on a stick with wooden flour. Finally the coated stick is soaked in liquid smell and dried. A woman trained in this work can complete her domestic work and earn an income of four to 5 thousand rupees per month.
