Atla Taddi:

Atla Tadde, which is comparable to Karwa Chauth in North India, is celebrated by married women in Andhra Pradesh for the long life of their husbands. It occurs on the third night after the full moon in the Telugu month of Aswiyuja and falls in September or October in the Gregorian calendar.

Telugu ladies celebrate Atla Tadde by going without food or drink for a day. In the evening, women perform pooja and break their fast by eating little Atlu (mini dosas) while staring at the moon.

The origins of Atla Taddi:

According to legend, Atla Taddi is a ceremony advised by Goddess Gauri for all young unmarried females to perform in order to obtain Her blessings for a suitable marriage. In ancient times, a princess from a huge kingdom attempted to please the Goddess by fasting for Atla Taddi but fainted from thirst and hunger. Her brothers decided to save her after seeing her condition and showed her a mirror with the reflection of a fire in it, resembling a full moon.

Many years later, when the princess was grown and a suitable match was sought for her, no young groom could be found. Finally, her brothers arranged for her to marry an elderly guy. Out of desperation and rage, the princess fled to the forest and began wailing under a banyan tree. Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati appeared in front of her and explained that she was in this circumstance because she had not finished the Atla Taddi ritual properly. Following this experience, the princess returned to complete the festival procedures as advised, and she soon married a handsome, young man of her choice.
