The last Amavasya of the Ashadha month is called the Chukkala Amavasya. Pearls look for the ‘Chukkala Amavasya’ nomu, seeking offspring and prosperity. On this famous ‘Chukkala Amavasya’ day, the devotees perform Gauri Puja faithfully and fast till evening. A hundred drops of lime are placed in front of the mother and the same number of strands of yarn are placed on them. The yellow threads are woven into a wreath and worn by Marnadu. Those who can afford it will donate gold or silver dots. This number will increase by 100 per year, reaching 500 by the 5th year. Some people also perform Deepapuja in some places on this occasion. Newlyweds also perform this rite for the good of their children.
