Goddess Bangaramma is known to have less importance as compared to other seven sisters
(Dravidian deity) in Hinduism
. Goddess Bangaramma has no temple of her own but her image is placed in the temple
of Goddess Poleramma
. At times it is also seen that she has a smaller temple near that of Poleramma and receives a small share of the worship. It is apprehended that there may be some connection between the name Bangaramma, meaning the golden one and mild nature.
Devotion of Goddess Bangaramma
Bangarammas worship is common to that of Poleramma. Goddess Bangaramma sometimes receives a little distribution of the worship or Puja
and it begins mildly. On the first day of worship of Goddess Bangaramma, the children are treated to sweets
. The buffalo sacrifice is done on the third day. After the severed head is placed before Goddess Bangaramma water is poured over it until the head is said to jump. This indicates that the sacrifice is acceptable to Goddess Bangaramma. Then people dance
while the drums
and horns keep up the spirit.
Now days a strange custom
is now observed in worshipping Goddess Bangaramma. The Madigas (Social Group) begin to abuse the caste
people. They make good use of the opportunity. If the Madigas show any unwillingness to begin, the caste people will beat them thereby compelling them to perform their duty. As they suffer a great deal of oppression, the Madigas get a good deal of satisfaction out of this privilege.
