Pongala defines ideal community

Pongala is not a crowd of bhaktas as you percieve; pongala creates a community bound by love and mutual trust. Its varied colours are united on a common objective of bhakti. Here you could see people from different walks of life, regions, caste and status coming together to become part of a community to submit to Attukalamma. There is no hatred, no disobedience, no non-cooperation, but only submission. The feeling and craving for coming together in Pongala defines the ideal community.
