Shivalingam melts at Amarnath

The ice form of lord Shiva, Shivalingam, has completely melted away in Amarnath, much to the huge disappointment of thousands of devotees and many more who are yet to come. An Amarnath Shrine Board official said the holy icicle had been receding day by day and disappeared today. Reports from the holy cave say that some pilgrims were agitated over the disappearance of the lingam and blamed ill-management on the part of board for its now almost annual disappearance.
