Dear Chennai, As 2015 draws to a close, we saw one of the most toughest times that nature bestowed upon us with the incessant rains and floods. But what was even more stronger was and is our spirit to rise above it all. Irrespective of caste, religion or language, we became one as we lend helping hands and what was heartening is the number of people who lent a home to stray dogs and pets. This issue, we dedicate Discover Chennai to the furry fairy tales from across the city while our Pondy edition gets on mane mania. It is the season of love and in our beloved city, it always is. Merry Christmas

The ritual of the Serpent Gods Legend goes that Parasumma, who brought fmth the Land of Kerala from the seas, gave the local Pulluvar dm the right to live by worshipping the serpent Gods who arebelievedtobethepmkdmsofthelad. TheSarpamTnulld(D-&Snakes), is m unique tradition that thisdm perfannually to a p s e the snake Gads. This cenhlry-old ritual can be pea0-d by d y a select foriin sacred groves, temples oreveninsomehom.

Organisers from Shoranur explain, "To achieve the blessings of Nagam,on the day of Aayilam [ star ] t h i r u d devoties undergo vrutham (fasting) and light lamp for 'Nagaraja, Nagayakshi, Karinagam etc. and adds, "This will bring prosperity in your life. If possible, one should go to the nearest Naga temple and perform Palabhishekam (Pouring Milk o n d e i t i e s ) Manjalabhishekam (Turmeric water) Elaneerabhishekam (Tender coconut water) Panineerabhishekam (Rose water) and Malarabhishekam (Flower) to Nagam and offer prayers." On the day of the ritual, whilst playing traditional instruments like the para, elathallam, nanduni and pulluvankudam, men (pulluvan) and women (pulluvathi) also sing, while two or more young girls step onto a nagakalam (a decoration using natural colours) and enter a trance. A priest is also present to perform the ritual offering. The pullavan asks questions in his song, for which the girls moan and writhe in serpent-like movements erasing the nagakalam whilst answering his questions. Efforts are now made to preserve thisfast disappearingritual, the Cheenikkal house in Shoranur is one of the few places that have been performing this ritual for decadesnow.

Dates: December 25,26 and 27. Venue: Cheenikkal house Mundakkotukurussi, Shoranur Pallakad, Kerala. 679122. For details: 0466 2106006

Japan comes calling! Fuji, Chennai's latest Japanese restaurant on Chamiers Road is as authentic as it can get. With minimalistic decor and low dining table, Fuji sets the tone for the platter with 'no nonsense' ambiance. Be it Edamame (boiled salted soya beans) or the mainstay Sushi, the food here is an experience as much as it is a tasty affair. We say go beyond the usual sushis or sashimis and try their amazing fusion series - Mabo Nasu or Ahijo. Fuji, 134, Chamiers Road, Nandanam. Details: 42112511

X mas treats Chocolate-Ragi Christmas Cookies Christmas is a festival of giveaways and more special are the edible goodies homemade by loved ones. Nothing like that if such goodies are bestowed with goodness of one of the most nutritious cereals, the finger millets. Kids for sure love chocolates, they love cookies too, but ragi? Finger millets are enormously rich in calcium, iron and fiber making it a must for children. This is a simple yet delectablerecipe of ragi cookies masked by chocolate for the colour and flavour making it all the more alluring for children and the adults alike. The white sugar in the recipe can be replaced by brown sugar or demerara sugar.

I he legend

back in 1516, the Fortugese built this lovely little church in Mylapore to honour Mother Mary. Legend goes that Pomgese sailors were caught in a storm and then a light guided them to safety. They then built a church to the Lady of Light in what was then a forest. The Kaatu koil or forest temple even lend itF name Luz (the Portugese word for light) to the entireneighbouring area. To this date, the 16-th century church stands tall, undisturbed by the buzz of the busy Mylapore.
