Yapral: Festivities of Bonalu organised at Sri Bujili Mahankali temple here on Wednesday had a significant feature. Unlike other temples in Hyderabad where Bonalu festival is celebrated in Ashada Masam , the celebrations at Yapral Sri Bujili Mahankali Temple are celebrated in Sravana Masam. The tradition has been in practice for more than 100 years.
Here, all the rituals offered to goddess Mahankali are being carried forward by 12 different families of Yapral Village, whose forefathers started the rituals. The rituals were led by Racha Velupula Ramchander family. Racha Velupula Ramchander standing on a wet clay pot performed rangam "Bhavishyavani" programme and his brothers Racha Velupula Gnaneshwar performed Maha Harathi to the goddess along with Velupula Narsing Rao, Srihari, Vinod and Chandu.
