Andhra Pradesh: Bani Festival
Andhra Pradesh ke Devaragatti Temple, Kurnool district me ye bizarre as well as dangerous hai. In fact, bani festival ka concept hi hai ‘Kill or get killed.’
Har Dusshera lathi lekar log iss temple complex me aate hain. Not to destroy evil but to beat each other in cold blood at midnight. After dawn, sab ghar chale jate hain, drenched in blood, jaise kuchh hua hi nahi. According to the priest, ye celebration 100 years se chala aa raha hai. Previously, log axes aur spears lekar ladne aate the.
Kerala: Puli Kali
Puli Kali is also called ‘Play of the Tiger.’ Ye fest fourth day of Oman ko manaya jata hai. Aapko ye fest Kerala me kayi jagah dikh jaayega especially in Thrissur. Trained dancers, painted as tigers, street me dance karte hain.
Tamil Nadu: Theemithi
Theemithi is also called fire walking. Ye ritual Tamil Nadu me originate hua tha. Later it spread to Sri Lanka, Singapore and South Africa.
This festival celebrates Draupadi, wife of Pandavas. After the long Kurukshetra battle, Draupadi aag me chali thi to show the world her piety and chastity. Ever since, fire pit prepare kiya jata hai a week before every Deepavali. Devotees fire pit par walk kar penance aur abstinence ka message dete hain.
