Karkidaka Vavu, where devotees perform balitarpan to pay obeisance to their ancestors, is observed on Monday. Usually, devotees perform the ritual on the banks of rivers including the Kalpathipuzha and Bharathapuzha under the guidance of priests. However, this year, the Covid pandemic has taken over the age-old practice and no balitarpan will be performed at public spaces.
