Tamil New Year celebrated with traditional fervour

Tamil New Year celebrated with traditional fervour

Tamil Nadu welcomed "Heyvilambi"- the Tamil New Year - on Friday with traditional fervour with people visiting temples and wearing new clothes. "Puthandu Vazthukkal" (New Year greetings) is how friends and relatives greeted one another in the morning in person or over the phone. The New Year is celebrated on the first day of Tamil month Chithirai, which normally falls on April 13 or 14 annually. "We went to the nearby temple after getting up early," J. Muralidharan, a resident of Mylapore in south Chennai told Media. The houses are decorated with 'kolam' (rangoli) outside the front door. Mango leaf streamers adorn the door frames.
