In a bizarre incident, several girls were made to participate bare-chested at a festival in Vellalur in Madurai district of Tamil Nadu for a fortnight as part of a ritual. As per a report in The Covai Post, girls, dressed up like goddess with only jewellery to cover their upper bodies, spent around 15 days under the supervision of a male priest inside the temple to please the village deity. In a video released by The Covai Post, seven minor girls, all bare-chested and aged between 10 and 14 years, were seen carrying paddy baskets on their head, which they offered to the temple priest. It is to be noted that girls, who have not reached puberty, are only allowed to take part in the tradition of pleasing the village deity. After the report of the bizarre temple ritual went viral, local authorities stepped in and issued orders that the girls must be allowed to cover their bodies.

Tamil Nadu 1: girls’ road trip to the deep south | vickygoestravelling
We have a cheerful rendez-vous at the Chennai Trident, a surprisingly nice airport hotel, before embarking on our own Odyssey. We are saddened by the marble memorials to women and children who died so young. We repair to the cool interior of our car, and head south along the coast to Mamallapuram, passing resort after resort, many with garish Disney-style statues outside to entice innocent children. Mamallapuram is known for two things: firstly, it is a UNESCO World Heritage site, an ancient port city built in the 7 th century and with some spectacular temples worthy of its status;. We treat ourselves to a large cold beer, some curried crispy squid and a fish curry — all delicious but vastly overpriced thanks to RS. It turns out to be the most expensive meal of the trip! Onwards, onwards, sightseeing cut short by the heat, to Pondicherry, the old French capital — the French, Portuguese, Dutch and British all fought over these trade routes over the years.
At least seven young girls were forced to live half-naked at a temple in the south Indian city of Madurai in Tamil Nadu state as part of an ancient ritual, local media reports say. According to reports, only girls who have not attained puberty are allowed to take part in the ritual. Devotees of the temple believe that the practice brings progeny and prosperity to the whole community. As part of the ritual, girls are dressed in sarees made of silk and are barred from wearing blouses. They are also adorned with jewellery and are paraded in front of the temple's priest and several men and women from the village.
