VISIT TO ANOTHER TEMPLE

Temples in India are not only worshiping places but also a place for social get-together...... once year people in the neighborhood and also those who can afford....... from far off places....... visit to the temple on the occasion of  JAATRE  or HABBA,,,,,,.... people are thankful to the local deity for keeping the family well for the year passed and pray for good health, prosperity and happiness in the coming year. .... Family members enjoy the day after Darshan of the Deity...... have free lunch (they call prasada) and spend the day buying some cheep entertaining stuff, which last for a day or two......
One such visit was to Mandarthi........Shri Durgaparameshwari Temple....... a distance of 16 km from Birthi..
It was JAATRE time...... went through the routine rituals...... visited a family friend Vishwanatha Udupa.......
and back.......
Evening again to a place called GILIYAARU....... another place of deity...... but there was YAKSHAGAANA..... dance ballet...... by child artists..... MAKKALA MELA,,,,,, trained by H. Sridhar Hande of Kota....... it was a two-hour presentation of story from Mahabharatha....... BABRUVAAHANA..
back home by 9p.m ...........
