"Every year our family looks forward to the Bathukamma festival for all the colours, joy and festivities.The lovely young girls from the orphanage "Balika Nilayam" run by our grand mother, helped us make our Bathukammas. Occasions like these help create lifelong memories for us as well as these young girls . I have grown up with these girls and love seeing the joy and happiness on their faces. Bathukamma is a floral festival celebrated by the women of Telangana. It is celebrated for nine days during Durga Navratri. It is the festival for feminine felicitation. Had a fabulous time with the girls and family! " Upasana said.
