Cake prepared by my kids

There are some birthdays particularly my childhood days it was totally a bliss, later after my grand fa it was also very special because of my Hubby. Also, I strongly believe that no one in this world is left alone, everyone is accompanied with someone for anything to happen may be good or bad. But I take it as an experience of my life, in spite of this there are countable who stick to us and then there comes cause to be parted away from our life – this being a painful experience all over the life. Been such a year this was to me, full of crackling and bursting sounds which kept on rumbling my heart – but to be honest, I have experienced this once in my life and also took an oath not to experience this pain ever in my life. But unfortunately, who doesn’t fall for affection, care, friendship and love – and now again with the same experience but with much pain ever I had in life.

Happy Birthday to me (Deepa)

In spite of all these I have a blessing in my life that I have earned because of my love, care and affection – my friends, well-wishers, my family (hubby and kids), who pat my back, hold my hands, make me smile, realize you are not alone and make me come back – huge thanks to them. When I feel that everything for me in my life is over, and now dedicating my life to my Grand Fa, who raised me by teaching – “Stand for what you are, even when the whole world is against you. Stand strong and face your problem by yourself – You are a women and Women are the strongest gender in world – Keep on going in the way that keeps you safe, makes you and your surroundings happy”.

Ever since my birthday I never had a chance or never wanted to cut a cake, this year was completely special with a cake cutting, pouring of gifts, lovely birthday song by my son, first wish (this year been very special), as usual but my most favorite and expected yellow roses from my hubby. Not to miss my all social media timelines and IM filled with more and more wishes. Well Celebrated Birthday with more and more boost to my life – by realizing my life is not meant only for me, but for others and much more to do.  

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.

CLICK HERE for our Vinayagar Chaturthi celebrations at 2017 and CLICK HERE for Vinayagar Chaturthi recipes.

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.
