MELMARUVATHUR

RED GARB

The temple prescribes red garb both for the personnel, discharging several duties and the visiting devotees. It acts as a passport to reach the Mother's feet. It has a symbolic significance too. The colour of the blood flowing in the veins of all, irrespective of caste, status, nationality, language etc. is red, and it is common. All are the children of the MOTHER, and so are equal to receive her grace. 

This highly laudable ideal of equality is represented in the uniformity of dress - red coloured sarees and blouses for women and red dothies and shirts for men. It is a symbol of oneness and achieves equality through uniformity of outfit. A good ideal! Better display!! Best means of rapport.
