Kartik Purnima 2018: Know Significance, Importance And Celebrations of Auspicious Day of Tripurari Purnima

Kartik Purnima or Tripurari Purnima is celebrated on the full moon day of the auspicious Kartik month of the Hindu lunar calendar. This year Kartik Purnima is being celebrated today, November 23, 2018. Kartik month holds great importance for the Hindus as this is the only month in which both Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu are duly worshipped. Kartik Purnima is associated with Prabhodhini Ekadashi which marks the end of Chaturmas, a four-month period when Lord Vishnu is presumed to be asleep. People in Varanasi celebrate Kartik Purnima by lighting diyas and earthen lamps along the banks of the river. Devotees also pray to Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva on this day and visit temples to light diyas near the idols of the gods.


The auspicious day has two legends associated with it one of Lord Shiva and the other of Lord Vishnu. Tripuri Purnima or Tripurari Purnima is related to the legend of Lord Shiva and derives its name from Tripurari – the enemy of the demon Tripurasura. In some Mythological stories, Tripurasura is the three demon sons of Tarkasura. Lord Shiva is given the epithet of Tripurari because he in his form of Tripurantaka killed Tripurasura on this day. Tripurasura was a demon who had conquered the whole world and defeated the gods and created three cities in space called Tripura. Lord Shiva killed the demon and annihilated the three cities with a single arrow providing joy and euphoria to the gods.

In another Mythology related to Lord Vishnu, Kartik Purnima is celebrated as the birthday of Matsya or Matsyavataram (fish avatar Lord Vishnu). The Matsyavatar is said to be the first avatar of Lord Vishnu out of his ten avatars. He took the form of a giant fish to rescue the first man, Manu, from a great flood. This day is also celebrated as the birthday of Vrinda, the personification of the Tulsi plant and of Lord Shiva and Devi Parvati’s elder son Kartikeya, the god of war. This day is also dedicated to one’s dead ancestors called pitrs.


People take ritualistic bath in a water body like a lake or a river. This holy bath is known as ‘Kartik snana’. A holy bath at Pushkar or in the River Ganges is deemed the most pious and auspicious. An evening bath is also taken by devotees who offer prayers during moonrise and offer worship. In Pushkar, Rajasthan, the Pushkar Mela or Fair commences on Prabodhini Ekadashi and continues till Kartik Purnima. The Pushkar Mela is dedicated to Lord Brahma whose temple is located at Pushkar. A ritual bath on Karthik Purnima at Pushkar Lake is considered the most auspicious and beneficial for leading one towards salvation.

Kartik Purnima is also the birthday of Sri Guru Nanak, the first Sikh guru and the founder of Sikhism. His birthday is celebrated with great pomp and fervour by all the Sikhs around the world.

That India were favourites going into the three-match Twenty20 Series in Brisbane was no understatement. They had after all won 13 of their last 15 T20Is before the one played out at the Gabba while Australia were coming off four consecutive losses in the 20-over format. Therefore, the result in the opening encounter where the hosts overcame a mighty Indian outfit by 4 runs (DLS method) came as a bit of a surprise as Australia showed just why they aren’t walkovers in their own backyard. The two teams now head to the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) for the second T20I where the Indians will be eager to prove a point while Australia will be keen on continuing their good run and seal the series on Friday. Everything that had been going wrong for the Australians came together in the opening game. Chris Lynn, Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis fired with the bat while leg-spinner Adam Zampa who has been in and out of the side of late returned with excellent bowling figures of 2/22 in four overs which included the crucial wickets of Virat Kohli and KL Rahul.

Sent into bat, Lynn (37 in 20), Maxwell (46 in 24) and Stoinis (33 in 19) all powered the hosts to 158/4 in 17 overs on a pacy Gabba deck. The revised target of 174 in 17 overs proved too much for India despite a scintillating 42-ball 76 by Shikhar Dhawan. The bowling unit then had Jason Behrendorff picking up the early wicket of Rohit Sharma while Billy Stanlake troubled the Indian batsmen with the extra bounce. Stoinis’ nerveless last over when he had just 12 runs to defend will augur well for the hosts as well. “We have got good memories in the team. We dominated T20s last year. We were in good form not so long ago. Obviously, things have not gone our way but we know we are still a good side,” said Stoinis after the game. Andrew Tye’s returns of 3-0-47-1 are a cause of headache for captain Aaron Finch, but he will hoping the seamer finds his rhythm back in the second outing. What will probably have the hosts chuffed is Lynn getting back among the runs. The 28-year-old has been a prolific run-getter in franchise cricket all over the globe but hasn’t yet been able to showcase his full potential in the international circuit. Now, having started off the T20 series well, Australia will hope for some more ‘Lynnsanity’ come Friday.

For India, on the other hand, an early wake-up call might not be such a bad thing. There were a few glaring lapses on the field which included two dropped catches and a fairly straightforward run out chance. The bowling too lacked the fire which has been associated with the Indians. Dhawan, after the game admitted that missed chances in the field cost the side dearly. “Of course, missed chances in the field had their own impacts,” he said. “The dropped catch and missed run out opportunity but that is part and parcel of the game and we took it in our stride. We conceded a few extra runs in the middle overs.” The difference between the two sides in the opening T20I was the number of sixes each side hit. While Australia had 9 maximums to their name, India had just the 4 of them.

There were way too many loose balls by the visitors on the day which were dealt with rather easily. Krunal Pandya (4-0-55-0) and Khaleel Ahmed (3-0-42-1) were both taken to the cleaners by the Aussie batsmen even as the other three bowlers Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Kuldeep Yadav were miserly. Not having a sixth bowler in such circumstances hurt India badly. The visitors might have also missed a trick by not including Yuzvendra Chahal considering the kind of returns Kuldeep and Zampa had. With the MCG surface likely to take turn there is a chance India might consider fielding both Kuldeep and Chahal for the key encounter. The batting barring Dhawan and Dinesh Karthik (30 in 13) too looked off-colour with Rohit, Rahul and Kohli, for once, failing to fire. While India is unlikely to make any changes in the batting unit, having had a feel of the environment Kohli-led India will want to give a better account of themselves at the MCG. India have happy memories of the ground having defeated Australia in a T20I the last time they were in the country in 2015-16. The conditions are expected to be batting-friendly and a high scoring in affair is in the offing. A strong-70,000 crowd is expected at the MCG on Friday which will make the atmosphere even more lively.

Australia: Aaron Finch (c), Ashton Agar, Jason Behrendorff, Alex Carey (wk), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Chris Lynn, Glenn Maxwell, Ben McDermott, D’Arcy Short, Billy Stanlake, Marcus Stoinis, Andrew Tye, Adam Zampa

India: Virat Kohli(c), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik, Rishabh Pant, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Washington Sundar, Krunal Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav, K Khaleel Ahmed

Khaleel Ahmed Strikes Twice To Hurt Australia

As far as India are concerned, having won seven consecutive bilateral T20I series, Kohli and his men will certainly want to make it eight in a row and for that they may be forced to rejig both their batting and bowling combinations. The Indian batting line-up could see some changes owing to KL Rahul’s patchy form. Since scoring 101 not out in the first T20I against England in Manchester, Rahul hasn’t been able to cross the 30-run mark in next six matches. The team management has persisted with him at number three, benched Manish Pandey and the skipper demoting himself to number four. Consistency is need of the hour from Rahul, especially considering that he is also set to be a part of India’s top-order in the ensuing Test series. (Play fantasy league and win cash daily)

12:30 ISTHello and welcome to our live coverage of the 2nd T20I between India and Australia in Melbourne.

The team management could also be tempted to have a re-look at the bowling attack. On a grassy surface, Krunal Pandya was plundered for 55 runs in his four wicketless overs and was hit for as many as half-a-dozen sixes. If the MCG is also of Gabba’s nature, Kohli might be tempted to bring in leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, who boasts of a brilliant wicket-taking record in T20Is. Even then, it remains to be seen if the team management rings in any changes after such a close defeat, especially when the balance is disturbed. Leaving Pandya out would leave them a batsman short and Kohli might not be keen on taking that gamble. The loss, however narrow, has indeed cast such minute doubts on the Indian team’s strategic preparations in a format, which they have dominated since July 2017. In the lead-up to the first match, skipper Kohli had spoken about the need to cut down on mistakes and regaining an upper hand at crucial junctures of a game.

At Brisbane, the ‘Men in Blue’ were found slacking in the field and it proved to be the ultimate difference in a seesawing game. Even Kohli himself was guilty of poor effort on the field on at least two occasions, dropping counterpart Aaron Finch in the fourth over and later involved in a mis-fielding from the deep. Australia boasts of bigger grounds than in India, with bigger boundaries of course, and the MCG will prove to be another humongous challenge in that regard. The task is cut out in front of the team management to work on fielding angles to elevate their efforts in the second T20I. It doesn’t help that there is such a short turn-around time during this series, that fielding coach R Sridhar won’t be able to work with the players at the MCG.

Any improvements in the field will have to be drilled in theoretically in the dressing room. And thus India will also seek to look at other areas where improvements can be made. The ploy to introduce Adam Zampa as the lone spinner worked wonders for Australia and with an intense fielding effort, Australia were able to make a winning difference. Things seem very different in the hosts’ camp all of a sudden, when they were simply considered second best to the Men in Blue across all departments less than 48 hours ago. Melbourne is experiencing a stormy spell in the latter half of this week, so there is a slight chance that the second T20I could also be rain-affected.
