Shirva: The family in a house at Nadibettu here has performed an ancestral ritual which they could not perform for almost 70 years.

As per the family tradition, a ‘Bhagina’ is offered to the Papanashini river only when the river water reaches the main stairs at the house’s doorway.

Heavy rains lashed the Udupi district for the past two days. All rivers in the district are overflowing including the Papanashini.

For the first time in three-quarters of a century, the river’s water reached the house’s stairs.
