KARAGA THIRUVIZHA from Anand Kumar on Vimeo.

Karaga Festivities
Kargam is a folk dance of Tamil Nadu which originated as a ritual dedicated to Mariamman the goddess of health and rain. The idol of Mariamman is carried in procession.
The ritual pot filled with water and adorned with decorations several feet high is carried by the priest. The dancers perform various acrobatic feats while following the procession accompanied by a number of musical instruments like ‘Thavil’, “Nadaswaram”, “Muni”, “Udukkai”, “Pambai”, etc.
The Karagam dance is very popular in Tamil Nadu, Sri Lanka. It is an eye catching item with the performer carrying decorated and vertically piled vessels on their heads and donning colourful costumes dancing in a lively manner to the tune of Nagaswaram and the rhythm of Thavil. It is popular in villages during temple festivals.
Significance
The rituals have their origin in the Mahabharata, particularly in the vastrakshepa (stripping) of Draupadi, the exile of the Pandavas and the death of Draupadi’s sons at the hands of Ashwathama. After all these trials and tribulations, she emerged as a symbol of strong and ideal womanhood.
