The teppam of Adi Kesava Perumla Temple in Mylapore enters its fifth and final day today.
It has been a quiet, near celebration.
And yet, few people seem too involved in the state of the Chitrakulam where all the action is now.
The dumping of waste into the tank is one issue that needs attention. There is another, but that will need a big budget.
All the steps on all four sides have collapsed over time, save for the ones that lead from the gate to the tank.
People who wanted to sit through the teppam this season sat on the steps leading from the south gate.
