Elections in Tamil Nadu.

The sixteenth legislative assembly election of Tamil Nadu was held on 6 April 2021, to elect representatives from the 234 constituencies in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. The poll is the state's first assembly election after the demises of the two most prominent Chief Ministers in its modern history, J.Jayalalitha and M.Karunanidhi, who had died in 2016 and 2018 respectively. The term of the state's current fifteenth legislative assembly will conclude on 24 May 2021.  CHHASE created awareness to all to vote for right candidate.

New Dresses to tribal children.

On 10th april, we have distributed new dresses to tribal children. All the 100 tribal children are happy to receive their new dresses, who are otherwise left to wear shabby clothes.Their parents also happy and promised us to send their children to our after school education centres and to main schools.

With your timely support, CHHASE helped them with ration kits twice and we provided clothing during lockdowns.

A small note about Tribal people.

The tribe numbers around 215,000 spread across three states: 189,621 in Tamil Nadu, 23,721 in Kerala and 10,259 in Karnataka. Those in Karnataka are named Iruligas. The Irulas are mainly concentrated in northern Tamil Nadu: in a wedge extending from Krishnagiri and Dharmapuri  districts in the west to Ariyalur and Cuddalore districts in the south and Tiruvallur district in the north. Small populations live in Coimbatore and Nilgiris districts and were classified by Thurston as a different population. In Kerala, the Irulas are in Palakkad district, while in Karnataka they are concentrated in Ramanagara and Bangalore districts.

Cattle-breeding is main source of income. Wild resources like honey, firewood and the like are also collected. The main occupation of the Irulas has been snake and rat catching. They also work as labourers (coolies) in the fields of the landlords during the sowing and harvesting seasons. Fishing is also a minor occupation. The original occupation of these people was rat and snake catching. Since the abolishing of snake catching by the Indian Government, the community had to abandon their migratory lifestyle and make their living among the suspicious mainstream society. The community has settled down in the outer edge of various villages, trying to make their living in as daily laborer in the fields, bonded labour in rice mills. Since, they do not have education and relevant livelihood skills.

New Dresses to tribal children.

Pandemic COVID-19 bankrupted almost every one. This tribal are no exemption from it. They lost their daily wages and suffered badly. In this critical condition, CHHASE helped them with ration kits twice and we provided clothing during lockdowns.

Today 26th mar, 2021, we have distributed new clothes to 100 tribal children, who are otherwise left to wear shabby clothes.

WOMENS DAY CELEBRATION

Due to COVID-19 Second wave spread, We took several days to prepare ourselves for conducting women’s day celebrations. We decided to call small number of our self-help group members for the celebrations. We took all precautionary methods like sanitizers, masks and social distancing.

During the celebration we insist our members to participate and learn skills for increasing their livelihood. We advised them to educate their children without fail. Most of our beneficiaries are aware of the value of education and use of skills at critical conditions like financial hardships. During the celebration, many of our beneficiaries shared their stories to others.

One of our beneficiary said “ My name is Kavitha, aging 36 years. I am from poor family. My husband worked in private company and earned hand some salary to run our family and educate our two children without difficulties.

But all of a sudden, COVID-19 lockdowns imposed in 17th March, 2020, My husband could not go to work. We some how managed, two months without salary, By May,2020 we become bankrupt. Another one month more we managed. We want to borrow money from someone, but no one is there to lend money.

In june,2020 CHHASE NGO provided us relief material which was useful to run our family for one month. During this relief distribution, CHHASE NGO staff said “ you have already learned sewing and why don’t you try to stich blouses and petty coats and earn. With their advice, I started my sewing business without any capital. For 3 months, I earned Rs.150 per day, which was moderately sufficient to run my family. Now I became known sewing businesswomen, I am earning Rs.600 per day.

I told my husband to help me in this business and next month I am going to open a shop in nearby town. Learning a skill is always beneficial and it will help us when we are in helpless condition.”

Livelihood program  

With the help of donors like you, We have are providing sewing  skills to 350 poor women to create livelihood and job placements. This training in sewing started in 1st March,2021 and will be completed on 31st May,2021 in 12 different places. As a matterof fact, sewing skill is well known as good business which always helps to earn in all seasons.

Dear Donor/ supporter !

CHHASE, our staff and our community celebrate the “ PONGAL FESTIVAL”. A festival of thanks giving. Due to COVID-19, this year it is Gloomy.

According to tradition, the festival marks the end of winter solstice, and the start of the sun's six-month-long journey northwards when the sun enters the zodiac Makara (Capricorn). The festival is named after the ceremonial "Pongal", which means "to boil, overflow" and refers to the traditional dish prepared from the new harvest of rice boiled in milk with jaggery (raw sugar). To mark the festival, the pongal sweet dish is prepared, first offered to the gods and goddesses (goddess Pongal), followed sometimes with an offering to cows, and then shared by the family. Festive celebrations include decorating cows and their horns, ritual bathing and processions. It is traditionally an occasion for decorating rice-powder based Kolam artworks, offering prayers in the home, temples, getting together with family and friends, and exchanging gifts to renew social bonds of solidarity.

Pongal is one of the most important festivals celebrated by Tamil people in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka,Andhra Pradesh,Telengana and puducherry in India.It is also a major Tamil festival in Srilanka. It is observed by the Tamil diaspora worldwide, including those in Malaysia, Mauritius,South Africa, Singapore,United states,United kingdom and Canada. 

The festival's most significant practice is the preparation of the traditional "pongal" dish. It utilizes freshly harvested rice, and is prepared by boiling it in milk and raw cane sugar (jaggery). Sometimes additional ingredients are added to the sweet dish, such as: Cardamom, raisins, Green gram and cashew nuts. Other ingredients include coconut and ghee.

Bhogi Pongal

The Pongal festival begins on the day called Bhogi Pongal, and it marks the last day of the Tamil month Marghazi. On this day people discard old belongings and celebrate new possessions. The people assemble and light a bonfire in order to burn the heaps of discards. Houses are cleaned, painted and decorated to give a festive look. The horns of oxen and buffaloes are painted in villages. New clothes are worn to mark the start of the festival. The deity of the day is Indra-the god of rains, to whom prayers are offered, with thanks and hopes for plentiful rains in the year ahead.

Surya Pongal

Surya Pongal – also called Suryan Pongal or Perum Pongal – is the second and main festive day, and is dedicated to the Hindu god Surya.It is the first day of the Tamil calendar month Tai, and coincides with Makara Sankaranthi- a winter harvest festival celebrated throughout India. The day marks the start of the Uttarayana. When the sun enters the 10th house of the zodiac Makara (Capricorn). The day is celebrated with family and friends, with the Pongal dish prepared in a traditional earthen pot in an open space in the view of the sun. The pot is typically decorated by tying a turmeric plant or flower garland, and near the cooking stove are placed two or more tall fresh sugarcane stalks.

Mattu Pongal

Mattu Pongal is celebrated the day after Surya Pongal. Mattu refers to "cow, bullock, cattle", and Tamil Hindus regard cattle as sources of wealth for providing dairy products, fertilizer, transportation and agricultural aid. On Mattu Pongal, cattle are decorated – sometimes with flower garlands or painted horns, they are offered bananas, a special meal and worshipped. Some decorate their cows with manjalthanni and oil. Shikakai apply kungumam to their foreheads, paint their horns, and feed them a mixture of venn pongal, jaggery, honey, banana and other fruits. Others bathe their cattle and prostrate before them with words of thanks for the help with the harvest.

Kanum Pongal

Kanum Pongal, sometimes called the Kanu Pongal, the fourth day of the festival, marks the end of Pongal festivities for the year. The word kanum (kaanum) in this context means "to visit." Many families hold reunions on this day. Communities organize social events to strengthen mutual bonds. Villagers cut and consume farm fresh sugarcane during social gatherings. Relatives, friends and neighbour’s visit to greet, while youngsters go out to meet seniors among the relatives and neighborhoods to pay respects and seek blessings, while some elders give the visiting children some pocket change as a gift.
