For those of you who weren’t aware of the significance behind today, Nagarapanchami is one of the most celebrated festivals in Karnataka and many other parts of the county. On 5th August every year, snakes and serpents are worshipped with offerings of milk along with other fruits that are provided to them. Nagarapanchami or Nag Panchami as many people call it is derived from the word ‘Nag’ which literally means a snake and ‘Panchami’, which signifies the fifth day (in the Shravana month). Considered as an auspicious day, all Kannadigas get enthusiastic about celebrating this festival and the preparations ideally start four or five days before. When the day finally arrives, many idols of snake Gods along with self-made clay idols are placed and worshipped with milk, fruits and flowers in an attempt to please them. Zee Kannada‘s Naagini show also celebrated the day in today and tomorrow’s episodes respectively.

So let’s see what happened in the Nagarapanchami episode today, shall we?
