Aadi perukku wishes to one and all.
"Perukku" in Tamil means "Manifold increase".  The rivers are upto the brim and flowing in full swing.

Aadi perukku is a Tamil festival celebrated on the 18th day of Tamil Month Aadi/Aashada. On this day we pay our gratitude and offer prayers to the Rivers whose water level start increasing during the monsoon season. It is believed that the water level starts rising from this month of Aashada with the onset of monsoon. People prepare a lot of variety rice like lemon rice,tamarind rice,coconut rice,sakkarai pongal,kalkandu saadham,curd rice etc. They picnic at the banks of the river with family after offering the prayers and enjoy the lunch with family and friends.

The prasadam generally is offered in odd number of preparation where in a sweet and curd rice is mandatory i.e items prepared are 3,5 ,7 or 9 in number
E.g. 1 sweet , 3 other variety rice (lemon rice , coconut rice , puliyogre) and curd rice
Or 1 sweet (kalkandu saadham/ sakkara Pongal / akkaravadisal) , 1 Savory mixed rice and the curd rice .
