Tamil Nadu is known for its traditions and culture. The advent of festivals marks the reaffirmation of the cycle of life with its joys and sorrows. Some of these ceremonies are purely pastoral, expressing the joy of life. Others are connected with myths and legends, sacred in our memories. Yet, others are temple festivals, calculated to inspire the citizens with high ideals of ethics. Nevertheless, all of them are associated with religion in some form or other. They are all made fascinating both to the eye and to the mind by appropriate rituals, music, dance and other belongings. Festivals renew bonds both within the family and with the community.
