Ring in the festive season 31/7/2014

The month of August  is synonymous with  Hindu festivals and  an occasion for women to shop, flaunt their new saris  and   make it into a religious cum social  event  commencing   with performance of  Varamahalakshmi Puja  Ladies  perform the religious part in the morning  in the traditional/ customary manner  with the vadyar  playing his official role  which is followed by feasting . The evening  provides an opportunity to socialize  with friends who look eagerly forward  to  catch up with  common friends  who make it a point to grace the occasion. Some  of the ladies  who are good at singing  sing songs in praise of  the Goddess  and the whole atmosphere reverberates with  their melodious  rendering.  All the ladies depart after taking  harshana ,kumkum along with their thamboolam .

Though  this puja  falls on the 8th. Of August  this year,  it can be performed during  any of the four Fridays of the  month of Sravan  which has commenced  on the 27th. Of july 2014.
