I visit Palani every year on Thai Pusam day in Palani. It is very auspicious in my view to be in Palani on that day. Thousands and lakhs of People gather in Palani to offer Prayers to Lord Muruga and have a darsan of the diety. I impress very uch to see the woman offer hair and receieve the blessings of the God. Even highly educated women have their heads neatly shaved on that in the large Tonsure hall built on the banks of Samuh river.
