Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation has made all arrangements to conduct the ‘Maha Batukamma’ celebration, in which an estimated 10,000 women are expected to participate. The event, which is being conducted to enter into Guinness Book of World Records, will start at 5 PM at LB Stadium in the city. The stadium was decked up colourfully and all the stands were coloured. Mayor Bontu Rammohan and Commissioner Janardana Reddy have supervised arrangements.
Batukamma (Life Giver), a floral festival, is celebrated across Telangana during Sarannavaratrulu. Womenfolk dance around a colourfully arranged flower pattern by singing songs. Its not a religious event but praying the Nature for a better and colourful life, full of fragrance.
The Maha Batukamma event is expected to outclass the Onam festival, which entered the record books.
