A TEMPLE FOR KANNAKI

Introduction  

In our boyhood days, in the Malayalam month of Meenam, (March-April) we saw groups of men---and occasionally a sprinkling of women passing through our village on their way to Kodungallur to participate in the famous Bharani festival. The men, often drunk, sang Obscene songs and slogans. They laughed, danced and swayed their bodies as they simulated the sexual act in the most blatant manner.

Even the Goddess Kali, the presiding deity of Kodungallur, was not spared. Her sexual organs were subjected to the most elaborate and intricate descriptions. It is believed that the Goddess likes such description.
