Kumbabishegam for this temple takes place today(09.12.2013), after a long gap of more than 50 years. The Thiruppani Committee needs to be congratulated for their excellent work of roping in almost everybody in the village of Nemili and its surroundings and got them involved in the process of this long pending renovation work.
We had taken up the work of white-washing the compound walls and we did the first coat of white-washing on 21.july 2013. This is covered in our blog post of 22.08.2013 which can be seen here @ புன்னாகேஸ்வரர் திருக்கோவில் , நெமிலி
To give a second coat and finishing touch to the compound walls, we were again at the place on 01.12.2013. Those of us who had reached on the previous day were accomodataed at Thirumati Dhanabakiyam Venu Thirumana Maaligai at Nemili.
Shri Karthikeyan of Nemili conducts free tuitions to school children from 4th std to 12th std along with Yoga. Dedicated teachers assist him in this endeavour for the past 4 years. Their students top in school exams. Some of these students joined us in our Uzhavaarapani.
Like the previous occasion, this time too, the rain god was in our favour. Though the sky was overcast with dark clouds, there was no disruption in our work, while the entire city of Chennai and its suburbs were lashed by the cyclonic storm and gusty winds.
