It falls on the first day of Chithirai. This is the New
Year's day for Keralites and the curiosity to set eyes on the Lord
on waking up draws people from all parts of Kerala in such large
numbers that special police squads are required to regulate the
crowds. Some over enthusiastic persons go to the temple in the night
itself-and stay there till dawn. Does not belief lift mountains with
a little finger?
