Kareeri Ishti Yagam that is being performed under the auspices of the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) has reached the second day today. The Yagam is being performed for rains. A TTD official said that the yagnam is meant to invoke the Gods for blessing the Telugu states with bountiful rains. It is being performed at Pararika mandapam, atop Tirumala. It is hoped that the yagam will result in rains so that no one suffers due to lack of irrigation or drinking water, the official said.
