“Wish Othuvars sing Nambi Andaar Nambi’s verses on each Nayanar at start of Arubathumoovar procession.”  Says activist T. R. Ramesh 

Activist T. R. Ramesh who focuses on temple related issues and has filed cases against the managers of Sri Kapali Temple  (HR & CE Dept.) over the last few years and has often been vocal about some issues he has raised.
A Mylapore resident, Ramesh says he has been present at the temple on the Arubathumoovar day for the last 30 years.
He said that he was happy to see the 63 Nayanmars being brought out in the order of Thiruthondathogai. “Earlier it used to be mixed up. This orderly procession is good in a way,” he said.
But he had a suggestion here.
Sri  Nambi Andaar Nambi has sung one song in praise of each Nayanar.
“It would have been wonderful for four or five Othuvars to have taken turns to sing those songs in front of the respective Nayanar at the start of the procession. I hope it happens next year on this day”, Ramesh said.
