This is the first time I am seeing the Thrissur Pooram Kodiyettam. I went to Paramekkavu Bagavathi Temple (which is my thattakam) on 25th April 2012 at about 10:30 AM after having my breakfast. I was a little early – so I sat in the temple for some time. There were a lot of familiar faces among the crowd gathered over there – most of them are my from my locality. The kodiyettam took place at approximately 12:00PM. After that I went to the Swaraj Round or Thrissur Round to see the fireworks. I sat under the tree chatting with my neighbors under the fireworks started at approx 1:30PM. After that I went home.
