Prayers at Talacauvery today for rain

Water Resources Minister M B Patil will offer prayers at Talacauvery, the birthplace of River Cauvery, at 2 pm on Sunday to propitiate the rain gods.

The minister will be accompanied by Adichunchanagiri Mutt seer Nirmalanandanatha Swami, Cauvery Neeravari Nigama officials and farmers from catchment areas of the KRS dam.

Prayers will be offered at Bhagamandala and later at Talacauvery.

Initially, the government had decided to conduct the ‘parjanya homa’ at an estimated cost of Rs 10 lakh. Following a controversy, the minister decided to conduct the prayers at his own cost. Local priests will perform the rituals.
