To spread positive vibes during the festive season, Tamil general entertainment channel Viacom18 Colors Tamil is launching an all-new mini-series, Nalam Tharum Navarathri. This special series will have Orator-Author Sumathi Sri sharing significant information about traditions and practices followed throughout the nine days of the revered Navarathri festival in Tamil Nadu.
Set to go on air starting from October 17 to October 26 at 7:30 a.m., each episode will take the audience on a divine journey by unearthing fascinating stories about the nine forms of Goddess Devi.
A culmination of music, lights and colours, Navarathri is one of South India’s significant festivals with Golu — an artistic display of dolls, forming an integral part of the occasion. The newly launched mini-series by Colors Tamil will capture the true essence of this celebration across 10 episodes.
Covering the entire spectrum of celebration, each episode will have Sumathi Sri sharing insights on the various nuances of the traditions associated with the festival in a captivating narration. Starting with an introduction, the episodes will focus on elaborating the traditions behind each day’s colour, flowers, prayers, offerings and musical ragas dedicated to each form of Goddess Devi.
Anup Chandrasekharan, Business Head, Colors Tamil, said, “At Colors Tamil, we believe in focussing on storytelling that recognises the rich culture of Tamil Nadu with innovative and meaningful content.
