On the other hand, some people said that Sawan has not yet started in South India.
According to the Hindu calendar, Sawan is the fifth month of the year. It is mentioned in the Puranas that the churning of the sea took place this month. One of the fourteen divine objects that came out of it during the churning of the sea was a commotion. In order to save the Brahmin, Lord Shiva drank the whole commotion and did not allow him to get down from his throat. It was because of this poison that Mahadev's throat turned blue and he also got a name neelkanth.
