This Pongal, Travel back in time with your children & experience magical moments of village life.  Whether it is the nostalgic Goli Soda (OR) the Rangarathnam, the delicious cool double ice (OR) the pulli attam, some refreshing karumbu juice (OR) Pattu Jawalee (silk cloth), you will find all this and much much more at this unique rural themed festival at Sholinganallur. The streets around Babaji Vidhyashram get transformed into a  Gramma Santhai (Village Market) and every turn around a corner brings forth pleasant surprises and transports you back in time to your own childhood spent in the villages of South India. Dosa Kalai, Parotta Kadai, sukku kaapi, rose milk, Molagga bajji, Delhi Appalam are but a few of the rural style food stalls in the venue.

Over 60 folk artists from Tanjavur, Turunelvelli, Kancheepuram, several of them award winners (state as well as presidents medal), perform at the venue and on the streets around the venue keeping alive the traditions of Tamilnadu. A troupe of specialists from Nagercoil stage the Thollupaavai Koothu this year adding more colour to the event.

A variety of village style children’s rides including Bullock cart rides, Ranga rattinam, mini giant wheel, Bioscope shows, puppet shows await children.

A riot of colours and profusion of long forgotten classic village eateries await visitors to this very special and only one of its kind festival on the IT Highway. The festival leaves you longing for more and the feeling that it is important to cherish, enjoy and share our heritage with the next generation.
