Its January. We hear the temple bells of Attukal Pongala, pleasing to the ears and pacifying the minds. Its Sunday today, and people come to the temple not only to have the darshan but also to hear about Pongala. One year has gone, with the pace of a week, we all meet again, with vivid memories and even names not forgotten.
Pongala comes again on 10 March 2009, proclaiming that we all are one, before Attukal Amma.
