To name a few examples, we get the best of bajan (devotional rendering), namasageertthanam (varied names God), harikatha (rendering of holy events), bagavatha mela (praising chants with drums), veda parayanam (chanting of Vedas), musical festivals, free service for upanayana (holy thread worn on the body), classical dance bonanza, aradhana (praising of sages), Guru puja ( praying for guru-mentor), puppet shows, informal street plays, dance with holy vessel on the head), kavadi shows (special kind of sticks-embedded gasket carried on the shoulder), and more are this town’s special events. At Kumbakonam, we have several cultural Associations, like, Vani Vilasa Sabha, Youth bajan Sanaj, Growing musicians’ Association, Nattiyanjali Sabha, Margazi (a Tamil month) Music festival and more are conducting cultural and musical functions from time to time. Tamil Associations like Mutthamizh Mandram strive hard for development of Tamizh language.
