According to the Sabarimala Temple website, pilgrims are hoped to lead an austere and holy life known as ‘Vrutham’. On the starting day of ‘Vrutham’, the pilgrim adorns a chain that symbolises the acceptance to follow austerity, free of worldly pleasures. During the Vrutham period, Ajay wore black, did not cut his hair or nails, did not take alcohol and consumed vegetarian food without garlic or onion. While going out, he walked barefoot and also did not use any perfume. As per reports, he also slept for 11 days on the floor.
