16th Jan 2016 - the day after Pongal ~ celebrated as Kanu(m) Pongal… in the morning there was Andal purappadu in Hamsa vahanam (Kanu Parvettai purappadu) ..and in the evening the wondrous purappadu of Sri Parthasarathi.
On this day occurs the annual trip of Kachi Varadar, famously known as ‘Seevaram Paarvettai’.. and at Thiruvallikkeni today is Kanu Parvettai purappadu. Words could fail describing His beauty and grace.

Periyazhwar describes Krishna ~ that of subjects of Gokulam getting stranded on seeing the beautiful cowherd Lord adorned with peacock feathers having dark centre spots, and many jewels ….. when His mellifluous music pervaded, it was not only devotees even the trees stood enchanted, and rained streams of nectar, poured flowers, and bent their upper branches in every which way the stood.
