The fishing season takes a break resume after Narali Purnima

Fishermen smooth down a boat after draging it out of the marine as monsoon is set to hit Mumbai in the first week of June. The fishing season takes a break throughout the rains and starts again on Coconut Day festival or Narali Purnima, which is a full moon day in the Hindu month Sravan.

Coconut Day carnival or Narali Purnima takes place in Maharasthra and Kerala. It is celebrated generally by the fishing community who offer their prayers for their safety to the sun-god Varuna. On the full moon day of Sravan is celebrated the Narli Purnima to appease the rage of the Sea-god Narli Purnima.

It also marks the end of monsoon, and is primarily observed by sailors, fishermen and others living in the coastal areas of India. The fishermen and fishing community in Maharashtra celebrates the Nariyal Purnima or the Coconut Festival in a jubilant manner.
