Hyderabad: Governor of Telangana, Dr. Tamilisai Soundara Rajan has extended her heartiest wishes and warm greetings to all the women of Telangana on the auspicious commencement of bathukamma celebrations.
Bathukamma is a special festival associated with Mother Nature and essentially is a celebration of life by women of Telangana. The colourful seasonal wild flowers used to prepare the idols of Bathukamma do have the medicinal properties to cleanse the water bodies filled to the brim with the copious rains during the season.
Bathukamma marks the re-union of families and visit of daughters of the soil to celebrate the nine-day long festival. Bathukamma isa real tribute to the native Telangana culture and traditions where women offer prayers to the Goddess Gauri (Goddess Parvati) in the form of Bathukamma said the Governor.
