Call for moon stories, poems etc in Tamil, Kannada, Ladakhi

This is a public call for sending us traditional stories, poems and legends about the Moon in Kannada, Tamil and Ladakhi.

The Moon is not only the most familiar object in the sky along with the Sun, it is also the object that awes people when looking through a telescope. The Moon is central to our cultures in terms of songs, stories, myths, traditions, legends, and so on.

We would like to develop night sky programs on the Moon for the general public that includes these cultural references as well. We are starting with a public call to send in such material in Kannada, Tamil and Ladakhi (for the states where we have observatories). The posters in these three languages (and English) are attached here.

Please do share it with your family and friends, and request them to send us their moon related songs and stories. We would love to hear them.
