Madraasi Pongal Celebration – 2018

Madraasi Pongal Celebration – 2018

Hope everyone had a fabulous, wonderful Pongal celebrations, we had a wonderful Pongal celebration. As usual woke up early in the morning made sweet and ven Pongal, offered it to sun god along with seasonal raw vegetables and had pooja. Our celebration started on Bhogi, the day before the Pongal on Jan 13th, by cleaning home, making garlands, tying flowers for hair-do, drawing Rangoli, and this time as I new basic stitching, stitched my daughter’s Pongal dress by myself. Glad and happy to say that I have become the Fashion Designer for me and my daughter, its not only my daughter but everyone loved the dress – happy me.

I am sure my daughter is going to load too much of works to me for her costumes. As she knew her mom (me) a lazy person, she shared her costume idea by now for her birthday which comes by April. When everyone was happy, the little fellow was angry with me and he wanted me to stitch costume for him 😊

Coming to food, I prepared Sweet Pongal, Ven Pongal, Mixed Vegetable Sambar, Aviyal and for the evening I prepared Mixed millets Pongal and shared with our neighbor’s.

Sharing few pictures from our celebration:

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018 FROM MADRAASI

It’s just few hours more for the clock to tick 12:00 and the rise of the next year 2018. First of all, let me thank everyone my viewers, my followers, my friends, my family, and the most important people my haters, WISH YOU ALL A HAPPY, HEALTHY, PEACEFUL, WEALTHY and PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR 2018.

Happy New Year

When everyone has been sharing their resolutions, I would say no to resolutions, as I never plan things, planning gives only flop to me. So anytime and every time, I wish to take what all happens to me in a positive note, If it’s good – happy me and If it’s bad – lesson for me.

Live and Let live,

If you don’t want to live at least let others live

Worry only for yourself,

If can’t best to move out rather pouring negativity

Be Happy and spread happiness

If not stay calm in a corner

Talk Less – work more

If not best to sleep

Be yourself and not be others,

If can’t …”

Stay Positive, Strong, work hard and Remember the word KARMA

2017 has been more and more successful year to me in blogging (my profession) and personally it has not been neither happy nor bad. On the whole it was too much of hard work, too much of patience, too much of stabilization to my mind and soul, in short, I have learnt to overcome things. I am proud to say that I have left all my negativity, fear and now it’s only brave, courage and ready to face anything that comes to me with positivity.

Happy New Year 2018, madraasi new year 2018, new year 2018 greeting, new year, new year 2018

Launch of Sachin Saga (mobile game) by Sachin Tendulkar, Bangalore

Launch of Sachin Saga (mobile game) by Sachin Tendulkar, Bangalore

Got an invite for the launch of Sachin saga animated mobile game depiciting “Sachin Tendulkar” by Jet Synthesis at ITC Windsor, Bangalore.

Arrived on time, as the game was to launch by the Hero of the Game / Icon of India – “Sachin Tendulkar” itself, there was tight security. One could see pilots around the area, along with tight security, entered the hall where the launch is to happen after the security process.

The game was displayed and the interested people where allowed to play for few mins. There was a small crowd of news reporters, T.V channels, Cricket critics and Bloggers. The event started by the host with a little intro to the game, and then there came the key persons of Jet Synthesis to share about the features, how, when, where and why the game came into existence. They told that there were 30 motion cameras for the shoot, it took over months as they interacted with Sachin to follow and understand his styles. Moreover, they also stated that they have team spread across globally to work for the game.

After 30 mins of time of all these conversations, there entered our Icon of India – Sachin Tendulkar, everyone stood at their place and welcomed him with a huge applause. Really, I felt like a dream sitting there and it was a miracle in my life, since I never ever dreamt of meeting Sachin Tendulkar in my life. No words and not only from me, we could see the excitement, shock from each and everyone over there.

He shared his experience in the making of the Game – Sachin Saga and there was a interaction session. Next to that, all our cards was asked dropped at the entrance of the hall, later it was taken to Sachin and he was asked to pick three cards. And the respective person of those cards where given 3 chances to play with Sachin Tendulkar and we had a visual treat of Sachin batting infront of our eyes within meters of distance. Later the first three people who played the Sachin Saga game was called to the stage, and where gifted with a cricket bat which had the autograph of Sachin and the more luckiest part was they received it directly from Sachin with Beautiful clicks.

Inspite of crowd, I somehow managed to take a selfie with Sachin Tendulkar – Icon of India, I would proudly say that this was my very first feel towards that word “LUCK” which I kept on longing throughout my lifetime.

I would like to thank third child – MADRAASI for what am I today, without you nothing would have been possible in my life. Next comes my followers, friends, family, well wishers who kept and keeps supporting me still now.
