Bathukamma, a vibrant floral festival celebrated in Telangana, spans nine days, commencing on Bhadrapada Pournami and concluding on Durgashtami. At its heart lies the Bathukamma, a stunning tower of medicinal flowers arranged in seven concentric layers. Women, dressed elegantly, gather around it, forming a circle of unity and sisterhood. They sing folk songs, celebrating womanhood and life. As evening descends, they carry the Bathukamma to a nearby water body, glittering with decorations and song. Day by day, the festival’s rituals vary, culminating in Saddula Bathukamma on Durgashtami. This tradition not only celebrates nature’s beauty but also highlights the preservation of natural resources.
