Jan.12 kolam contest will start only at 4 pm.

Holding a festival in public open spaces is never easy.
Challenges, hurdles, queries can fly in your face all the time!

This morn, the Hare Krishna movement folks called - they read the promos of the Fest and said that the annual Rath Yatra starts at the theradi on Jan.12, Sat at 3pm . . so would we take it into account.

Sure we need to!

So we are pushing the Saturday Kolam Contest on North Mada Street to 4pm instead of 3.30pm with the hope that the rath will make its way down the veedhi by that time . .

Heritage Walks: By V. Sriram, Chitra Madhavan

Two of our Festival allies are back with us for the 2013 Fest.

V Sriram and Chitra Madhavan will offer Heritage Walks at the Festival.

Sriram decided to have a Walk that takes  a look at a few well known lawyers of the area.  Starting from the gate of M Ct M School on Luz Church Road to Luz and ending at a spot on South Mada Street. About 90mins.

Chitra will talk about Less Known Features of Mylapore's Temples with a Walk from Sri Kapali Temple to the Chitrakulam area.

Both Walks are on Jan.13, Sunday. No registrations required - just land up!

There may be one more Walk. . keep logging in. . .

New Fest web site is up!

Our web site is up, about and abuzz.
The man who did a quick, simple and smart job of it is R. Prasanna.

He volunteered while waiting for a call for a doctoral program abroad and the collaboration worked.
Thanks Pras. And all the best in your research.

We hope you like this new look site - we added more visuals and kept it simple.
Mail us your comments -

Also, volunteerism is at the core of this Fest. Every year, 20 to 30 people of all ages take charge of the many events and run them.

For the 2013 Fest, we want freshers - college students and young working folks. Seniors who can be active are also welcome. But sign in fast -m we have a meeting lined up soon.
