On many occasions, we have to co exist with the temple processions and celebrations. And since we host the main cultural shows in Sannidhi Street, the processions which go out and get back through this zone have to be given preference. And we do that quietly.
It is a bit messy and tough on us but we do make changes.
This year at the finale , we parted the stages to make way for the Vayilar Nayanar procession, twice in under 30 minutes.
It affected the dance drama that was being presented but to our surprise people sat through it till about 10.20 p.m.
As dance guru Sasirekha Raammohan ( whose production was the finale and was affected twice) said later, "We don't find such attention and respect from the audience at sabha halls."
