The aadi month falls during the monsoon season and is essentially a thanksgiving to monsoon which fills the rivers – the lifeline of farmers.

The festival is celebrated by people residing along the Cauvery River bank. ‘Perukku’ means rising – indicating the rising water in rivers. The festival is essentially a form of Nature worship.

Special food is prepared on this day and family and friends get together and pray for uninterrupted supply of water and a good harvest.
