Visarjan at our home with Our Eco-friendly Ganesha – Ganesh Chaturthi – 2017

Standard

Visarjan is one of the most important part of Vinayagar Chaturthi / Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations. Visarjan means “Immersing the idol of Lord Ganesh in any water body, usually people use to immerse in lake, river, sea”. After the celebrations people carry Ganesha Idol along the streets by dancing towards the water body to immerse them.

But now as per the environmental security, most of us get Eco-friendly Ganesh idols. These Eco-friendly idols are made completely with clay and designed with beautiful color papers, kundan stones and Jhamkis.

It was from last year I got eco-friendly Ganesha Idol and after our celebrations are over, we perform puja, and for Visarjan – since we have a small Ganesha idol (1 ½ feet), we used to immerse Ganesha idol in a bucket full of water, and wait for a day until it dissolves in water.

Once it’s done, I separate the colour papers, kundan stones, jhamkis from the water. Transfer only the water to other bucket, then spread out the clay over a big sheet. I mix these clay with the soil in a proportion of 1:5, later fill those in the empty flower pots and plant herbs, table roses or sow seeds. Also pour the collected water to other flower pots and plants at our home.

I believe my Ganesha stays with me and shower his blessings through out the year. Also Happy that my kids come to know what Ganesh Chaturthi is, how to celebrate it Eco-friendly. Let’s save our mother earth by teaching our kids (future generation) the term “ECO-FRIENDLY”.

Short visit to Madurai, Tamil Nadu

Standard

After a week of vacation, while the initial plan was just for 3 days, but fortunately/ unfortunately it got extended for a week. But we liked this travel, which was filled with more fun, happiness, peace, amidst of nature, colors, family gettogether, function, colors, flowers, silk, last but not least the chaos.

We started our journey towards my heaven at Masinagudi – Jungle Retreat amidst of the jungle. Once in a year this is a must to visit place for peace, nature which gives beautiful treat to eyes, ears, mind and your soul. We have a signature room, which gets booked for us every time we go. It was a peaceful, silent, warmth experience for the first 3 days.

The next three days at Madurai, well spent day with the Meenakshi Amman Temple visit, got to grab few things at the Madurai market for cooking – that food blogger moment. Then must to visit is my all-time favorite Amma Mess, fortunately we had only lunch over there, missed the dinner . Later my nephew’s engagement, it was like a family gettogether with fun, laughter, colors, silk saree, jewels, flowers and not to miss chaos 😊

The most important is the stay we had at Hotel John’s, Madurai , located opposite to Madurai Omni Bus Stand. We got to book an executive room, the room was well spaced with beautiful interiors, almost with wooden. Two to three corners of the room had beautiful and well-designed dressing table, also the wardrobe came with a safety locker.

Food was too good, they had their own restaurant and we had plenty of options to order food with a complimentary breakfast. Also amma mess was just 500 mts near to the hotel, it was a newly constructed one with super-duper space and centralized Air Conditioning.

Also we had our food at our favorite Duck Hotel on the highway near Karur, where I was introduced to the duck curry.

Most important thing after the break, when we returned home, it was two days it took to get back and sit with my blog – cleaning the home (full of dust) and the most important thing is the plenty of homeworks and classworks for kids 😦 Finally to the blog after the perfection of home.

When it comes to color, it’s not only me but every one of us come across many things. Colors represent one’s emotion, feeling, spirit, mood and the list is never ending.

Colors has loads of power in them, as they could change the mood, mind set of people and make everything ease. Colors are endless and limitless with too many shades like light colors, dark colors, metallic, gold, bronze…

So, when it comes to gift, dresses you wear for functions all have some color contractions. I love black color to the core, but my mom and grand ma, shouts like anything when I pick dresses in black 😲. I use to laugh and make fun of them 😝, during my childhood. But now, I could realize how colors play an important role and how it could easily soothe one’s feeling and make them feel more comfortable.

A Timely and A Precious Gift – Madraasi Scribbles

From my experience – recently while going through a problem 😐 (my mind says, but it was just a dust), both my brain and heart started travelling in two different paths. It has been a difficult time and still being, but as I knew that days are passing by and I need to get up to speed and catch up…

When the days were brighter, my eyes found it darker
When the nights were darker, my eyes found it brighter
When there were blooming flowers, my eyes found only the shrunk ones
When there was moist in the air, my body felt only the dryness
When there were supporting words, my ears heard only the blames
When there was true love around me, my heart felt only the hatreds
When the brain felt more active, my heart felt more depressed
And came wonderful colors, made me realize who AM I…

I would say that these colors are not a gift, but it’s the positive vibes, that has flourished my mind with the sweetest, wonderful, beautiful, loveliest things around me.

Thanking the sweetest person, whom I haven’t met, haven’t chat but whom I came across social media. Feeling happy to have such a person who read, understood me through my writings and now means a lot to me.
