At yet another religious event family members carry out penance they have undertaken at the Siddarameshwar temple. On this particular morning a dozen or so men and women, with sticks in their hands, cover a distance of a couple of kilometres or so, starting at dawn. They stretch out on the ground, stretch the hand with the stick, and in a sweeping arc prostrate themselves, get up, take a few steps while chanting a mantra, and execute the same routine again.
