She said that the practise of sharing ‘bevu-bella’ during the Ugadi festival, was likened to sharing joys and sorrows of life. She also explained the reasons behind the tradition viewing the moon on Ganesh Chaturthi day, and the story behind it.


Observing Navratri festival by presenting a doll exhibition, ‘ayudha puja’ on the ninth day, and Vijayadashami on the 10th day was also detailed out to the children.
