This art involves gymnastic skill and perseverance. At the top of a tall pole, a pot filled with coloured water is tied. The bark of the pole is stripped off and the trunk is rubbed well with oil to make it as slippery as possible. The youths try to clamber up the pole, while the others stand round them and pour water on them and shout to distract them. The successful youth is the first one to reach the pot and break it. The successfull one gets gifts, money and so on. This is still considered as one of the activities of courage in Tamilnadu.
