Devotee Discipline Needed at Kapali Festival
The ten-day annual festival of the Kapaliswarar Temple has just got over. As in all its previous editions, this year too saw a grand spectacle unfolding, with the deities being brought out twice daily on various mounts. The temple authorities, the volunteers and the police have more or less perfected the routine and it was a pleasure to see the way the entire event was rolled out. Thousands thronged the Mylapore area to witness the processions. It is these people who now need to improve on their behaviour if this celebration is to be really fit for the Gods.
