A village in Andhra Pradesh has not celebrated Diwali in 200 years, and the reason is strange

 

It is Diwali, and the entire country is busy celebrating the festival of lights, except for a small village in Andhra Pradesh. Just like for the past nearly 200 years this year too, there are no Diwali celebrations in Ponnanapalem village of Srikakulam.

According to village elders some two hundred years ago a baby died of snakebite and two oxen also lost their lives on the day of Nagula Chavithi.
 
Thinking that the celebration of Nagula Chavithi and Diwali caused the death, the then village heads imposed a ban on the two celebrations.
 
And through the generations it still continues.
