Women who live in the vicinity of Sri Kesavaperumal Puram came out last evening and drew kolams on the street that leads to the temple.
There were sone 10 of them who drew the kolams some 6/7 feet apart.
They said that it was a prayer for wellbeing.
Said Chitra Gopal, one of the participants, “Since the lockdown we couldn’t have the Lord’s darshan nor did He come out to bless us, so to invoke His blessings and as a silent prayer to have His darshan we drew kolams as if we are having celebrations , as if the Lord is gracing the mada veedhis. Yes, actually it all started in Triplicane few days ago, and we were inspired too as we found it an excellent mode of offering our prayers, after all, Triplicane and Mylapore are twin kshetrams according to Thirumangai Azhwar ‘ Madama Mylai Thiruvallikeni kandene'”.
The temple is closed to the public but daily rituals do take place inside.
