Upon an invitation from a friend, I had the privilege to witness local festivity, that is an annual affair. A grand pooja is performed at the temple and a procession is carried out in the center of city for 3 days. Families prepare themselves to please the God in numerous ways. Usually, a silver or steel vessel is decorated with flowers and lamp made of rice flour or jaggery is placed inside them. Both married and unmarried women place this vessel over their head and walk for about 3 kms till the temple premises before making an offering. The whole event is accompanied by music, dance and other road shows where artisans showcase past traditions in various forms.
