The traditional music and dance kutcheris that follow the annual Panguni utsavam at Sri Kapali Temple in. Mylapore have been skipped this year.
A temple officer confirmed this but did not attribute any reason.
Usually, after a day’s break after the Thiru Kalyanam rituals, Carnatic music and dance concerts are staged at the famed Navaratri Mantap. Big artistes like Sanjay Subrahmanyan and Bombay Jayashri have featured in the past and the concerts draw a substantial audience.
Perhaps, the pandemic condition discouraged this year’s concert series.
