Chariot festival

It was on April 30th, I went to pull the chariot(ther in tamil) of Meenakshi Sundareswarar. Temple cars are chariots used to carry the idols of Hindu gods. Anbarasan and his friends joined me. It started to move at 6.00 am sharply. I started at 5.00 from my home. I heard that it weighed more than 4 tons(1 ton=1000kg). It is very hard to imagine. Around 700 people participated in it. It was a wonderful experience. We dragged with our full effort. We were able to pull only for about 1.5km till the end of south masi street. The actual distance is 5km. Then we strolled here and there getting some scoldings from the police. The people sprayed lot of water on us.We drank plenty of juices, buttermilk etc. Then we helped the people who made the chariot to move. Finally it reached the destination at 11.30am. My legs were severely aching. I had a nice sleep at home. If possible i like to participate next time.
