Chennai Day – Pettai Rap Nights moonlight

Pettai Rap by Moonlight

Pettai RapNights is a great opportunity to showcase your Chennai neighbourhood/ unga area in all its glory. Call it a wonderful opportunity to sing, dance, and celebrate your pettai and kelappufysome Dhool.And all at your convenience. After sunset, after you have finished your chores and work and laundry, and this, that and everything

How do we celebrate Pettai Rap?

You can make it a neighbourhood exclusive-take it to your local park, market square, flyover, or street corner. It can also be a community exclusive-If you are part of a social club, gated community, an educational institution, or residential association. Even the local auto association can participate. All you need to do? Something simple like a flash mob, carnival, magic show, street food special, by the chefs in your area, a book reading, poetry competition on Chennai Day, showcasing local talent, even a senior citizen outing , food stalls, retail therapy-your pettai style. Or, a serious effort like a no-plastic drive or beach cleaning. Just anything is super OK. And it all happens in the evening –so make sure you attend with your appa, amma, kudumbam, nanbargal and make it an event to remember

Why we want you to celebrate your Pettai

It’s a great opportunity to celebrate your neighbourhood or community’s uniqueness or identity. Remember Jambazaar Jagguand Saidapetai Kokku? Something like that. It’s an opportunity to know your neighbours. You can come together to tackle an issue that needs redressal.
