Easy one for the day!!

27 Jun

Once upon a time, the demigods and demons assembled together on the shore of the milk ocean which lies in a certain region of the cosmos.The demigods and demons desired to churn the ocean to produce the nectar of immortality, and agreed to share it afterwards.

The Mandara Mountain was used as a churning rod, and Vasuki, the king of serpents, became the rope for churning. With the demigods at Vasuki’s tail and the demons at his head, they churned the ocean for a 1,000 years

A pot of nectar was eventually produced, and both the demigods and demons became anxious. The demigods, being fearful of what would happen if the demons drank their share of the nectar of immortality, stole away the pot and hid it in some places on Earth.

At each of the hiding places a drop of immortal nectar spilled from the pot and landed on the earth. These places are believed to have acquired mystical power, and festivals are regularly held at each of the place.

My question is, this story is the origin of a periodic event that takes place even today.Name the event.

Given is the photo of the samudra manthan I mentioned.
