THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Thousands of people came together to pay homage to forefathers in different parts of Kerala. Aluva Manappuram and Thirunelli in Wayanad made arrangements for the bali tharpanam yesterday itself. It is believed that offering Bali to ancestors will let you die in peace.

At Thirunnavaya in Tirur, arrangements have been made to protect the people offering Bali from rain. Also many arrangements like safe waste disposal, plastic prohibition and all other facilities like parking and assistance have been arranged. The offering is taking place under several karmis.

Papanasam in Varkala, known as South Kasi, witnessed a huge crowd from Friday evening itself. The offerings will continue until 3 in the evening on Saturday. Authorities have arranged extensive measures for the smooth conduct of the ritual.

In Thiruvanathapuram, Thiruvallam Parasurama temple also offered the facility. Thiruvilvamala in Palakkad, Varaykkal in Kozhikode also saw huge crowds coming forward to pay the obeisance.
