A novel prayer to appease rain gods

Since Tirunelveli is yet to receive good rainfall during the current monsoon, while almost all northern districts are struggling to come out of floods, farmers here have started their prayers to appease the Rain Gods.

In a bid to attract the attention of the Almighty, a group of youths of Muthukrishpaneri near Alangulam staged `Mulaipaari kummi' in their village recently after offering special prayers to Mariamman, Kaliyamman, Sri Ramar, Sita and Sri Anjaneya.

Though this famous rural art is generally practised by women, the youths' dance might have placated the gods and goddesses as the areas around Muthukrishnaperi received some rains.
