A Juxtaposition


A cultural fete
nine days in a row
speeches, concerts,
vocal and instrumental
dance, poetic carnival,
and a comic interlude
keeps the small town
in action.

The pujas, archana,
the a;ankaram, the floats,
each day in different
palanquins.engage
the residents.

 

The culmination
the triumph over evil
dramatized with skill
places the folk in a stupor.

The grand finale
includes the celestial wedding
of Deivanai and Valli
performed with grace
holds the audience in bliss.

A much awaited event
celebrated with splendour
and with ununsual poise
conclude in a befitting manner

 

A juxtaposition of Godliness and rhythm.
