Karadaiyan Nombu

Karadaiyan Nombu is also called as Savitri Nombu. This is a very famous event for the married women in the state of Tamil Nadu. This is a day for devoted wives to pray for the long life and health of their husbands. Karadayan Nombu is celebrated exactly at the time when the Tamil month of Masi closes and Panguni begins. In the Gregorian calendar, we find this festival coming in the month of March. The name Karadai refers to the special kind of dish prepared in the households for the puja. The main ingredient of this dish is the pulse called Karamani (red beans).

The legend

Karadaiyan Nombu is based on a famous legend from the Puranas. Once there was a princess named Savitri who was highly devoted to her husband Satyavan. As per astrology, Satyavan had a very short lifespan and would face his death on a particular day. When Yama, the god of death took away the soul of Satyavan during the appointed hour, Savitri followed him to the netherworlds and demanded that his husband be released from death. Due to her devotion, steadfastness and determination, Yama gave back the life of Satyavan who lived for so long after that.

How to celebrate the event?

The day long fast on this day concludes after the special puja in the evening and partaking of the karadai dish made for the occasion. It is believed that Savitri prepared this dish with devotion and offered it to Lord Yama with utmost gratitude and devotion for giving back her husband’s life. The tradition is thus followed to this day.
