Pongala's psychology

Women wait for the official announcement to light the fire
Pongala gathers millions every year. It is the greatest gathering of women on earth who come to ward of their agonies offering pongala to Attukal Bhagavati. In modern terms it can be called a mass psychological counselling session. Pongala is a purgation of emotion and a catharsis takes place, leaving the mind calm and clean.
