After the Kani Pooje, the muttaide goes to the well and does the Ganga Pooje (worship the water). She places a dish made of rice floor and other dishes like dosa and pumpkin curry as meedi offering to the ancestors of the okka (family). She then draws water from the well and takes it home for cooking. Men take a portion of the rice dish to the paddy fields and keep it on the Bott post pitched there and call out thrice for their ancestors to partake the meedi. In the afternoon the flowers used for Kani Pooje are thrown into a river or stream (flowing water).
