Routines accomplished...

When i wrote this last year, it was the only season i missed in the last 15 years. Fortunately this year i was back to charge my batteries. Currently amidst of very tight show-like-working, deliberately took a week off, visited kuttralam.

Also today is Aadi 18. This is the day when newly weds visit Kaveri, offer prayers, and let the marraige garland into the river.

This year is Thalai aadi, but due to this, the aadi perukku was not celebrated but just observed from few hundred miles away from home.

Though offerings were not made, the custom of Kalanda saadam, was aptly kept up. Am typing this after a sumptuous lunch of Puliyansadam, Thengaai saadam, Akkaraadisal, Thayir sadam, Karuvadaam, more milagaai.. :P

And may this Aadi perukku keep the world fertile and peaceful.
