Teachers in Haryana, recently asked to spend long nights monitoring stubble burning, have been ordered to double up as priests by the state government. Over 100 teachers have been roped into religious duties like distributing prasad and chanting prayers at an annual temple festival. They are also tasked with counting the cash offerings of devotees.
