There is no need for proof. All, including those who collect there to watch it know that it is man made. Even police & forest guards escort is provided to those who lit the lamp in a tribal temple in that forest which falls in Tamil Nadu. Superstitious people can't b detracted however one may try. The sad part is that younger generation in 21st century India, is more superstitious than older generations.

The controversy has yielded positive results, even the temple authorities are now admitting the truth about its origin. From this year onwards, makara vilakku will be lit by authorized priests instead of police constables/ electricity board manual workers ! But yes, some devotees have lost a sweet dream ! I dont think crowd will be affected !
