"All through eternity
Beauty unveils His exquisite form
in the solitude of nothingness;
He holds a mirror to His Face
and beholds His own beauty.
he is the knower and the known,
the seer and the seen;
No eye but His own
has ever looked upon this Universe." - Shams-i-Tabrizi
Annual Transgender Festival!! Transgenders crying and consoling among themselves after becoming widows the very next day after their marriage . Thereby making them one day wife of Aravan and then widowship starts. Transgender and people from nearby villages throng to the village of Koovagam every year on the eve of chitra pornami in the mouth of May to tie the mangalsutra from the temple priest of Koothandevar Temple who act as Incarnation of Lord Aravan.The very next day they take out the mangalsutra and break bangles as a mark of widowship.
Festival Story :
It is said that Sri Krishna took the female form of Mohini to marry Aravan for fullfilling Aravan's last wish who was to be sacrificed before the Mahabharata war for the victory of Pandavas.The small hamlet of Koovagam is present in the Vizhuppuram district of Tamil Nadu, making it virtually just another point on the map. However, once a year this tiny village turns into the biggest camp for transgenders from all over the country. They gather in flocks to take part in the rituals of a festival which lasts for 18 days, culminating on Chithira Pournami (April-May). A festival which has its traditions rooted in the very depths of the Mahabharatha war, Krishna’s cunningness and the noble nature of a very valiant young man.
Yeah, So soon I'll be heading to Goa, Finally this pahari kid, will be kissing the sea. Grown up in the lap of Dhauladhars, I have certainly no idea what the vast Arabian holds for me, but I'm sure it'll be a pretty exciting venture, a little different than crazy Goa trip, the people have, a trip for 6 weeks and If you have seen latest Sumit Vyas Born free documentary, then, yeah I'm also one of those guys, visiting Goa for work, for my internship at NCAOR. So if you're near Biana beach, Headland, or Vasco this Monsoon, if you find anyone kindling with the rocks or working with sands, then do say Hi, maybe It's me and I'll love to have a chitchat for few moments, talking my about Mountains and the sea, I know it's off season, but still I'm hoping to catch the beautiful Monsoon of Goa, to watch the mighty Dudhsagar fall roaring in vengeance, or something else which you can suggest I can do, other than the typical Goa stuff.

For my mind and heart are free
This body only serves to dwell
Ones time on earth for thee
Moonlit shadows dance the walls
A distant rumbling roar
Once more my mind goes travelling
Beyond the steel locked door
My memories serve to set me free
Please shed no tears for me
My horse of steel she sits and waits
Counts not the years gone by
Together we will ride again
Come freedoms battle cry
For in this Prison made of man
Where a bikers body dwells
Each night his mind and heart is free
From the sound of screams and bells
The torment that each daybreak brings
Now forgotten in My dreams
My heart and mind now riding
Through forests by blue streams
Through desert storms and mountain peaks
Highways to the sea
For although my body is locked up
My heart and mind roam free.... -Walton
