There were some who were not very happy with Big B sharing this picture, as they thought it was against the 15-year ritual.
You should not have shared Sir.. if the custom is to not show for 15 years. Sometimes the traditions should be left alone and should not be tweaked by us

This temple of Goddess Kamakshi is situated right in the heart of Kanchipuram. According to a legend, Goddess Kamakshi lured Lord Shiva with her alluring eyes, which is why her name is Kamakshi, which means her eyes awaken desire’. Another meaning of the name shows the conjunction of three words, Ka, Ma, and Aksh, which means her eyes are Saraswati and Lakshmi. (Ka-Saraswati, Ma-Lakshmi, and Aksh-Eyes).
