Aadi Festivals with Silk Clothes

Aadi being in the air, divinity surrounds the atmosphere everywhere. Festivals like Aadi Pooram, Varalakshmi pooja in Aadi are celebrated to mark the fresh inflow of water into the river and waterways during the south west monsoon season. One such festival is Aadi Peruku. Aadi Perukku signifies prosperity and heralds good times in the lives of people. Prayers are offered to establish connection with the goddess Durga. This is a Hindu festival celebrated on the 18th day of the Tamil month of Adi (mid-July to mid-August). The festival pays tribute to water's life-sustaining properties. Ammman deities will follow various rituals on this month.
