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”.

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.

How I (MADRAASI) made my 2016?

Wishing you all a Happy, Healthy, Wealthy, Success and Peaceful NEW YEAR 2017

When I see everyone posting their resolutions and was asked to blog about my resolutions and happenings in last year. First I would like to say that, I don’t make any resolutions, somehow I believe that when I plan to execute things, it never happens (how hard I try) may be I would fall sick or someone in home or problem with my laptop or personal issues. Even if it happens it might not meet my satisfactory level. Apart from all these thought of following some things that I like to, may be this would be the resolution or my desire in life.

happy new year, happy new year 107, new year, new year 2017

Happy New year 2017 from Madraasi

About last year – Last year was wonderful and good to me in my blogging world. I got invite for events where I got to meet celebrities – Australian Master Chef. George Colambaris, Indian Master Chef. Sanjeev Kapoor, Master Chef. Shaun Kenworthy and Master Chef. Abhijit Saha. It felt like flying in the sky and that was a “PINCH ME MOMENT” for me.

Kitchen Connection – it was an online platform where I was given an opportunity to teach my recipes all over the world. Also there was a desire to do video recipes, where I created my YouTube account by 2014 and this kitchen connection was been a great motivation in bringing my channel live.

Check out my reviews – CLICK HERE.

Got featured in leading magazines like Deccan Herald (Bangalore), Kumudam Snehidhi and Dt_Nxt (Tamil Nadu).

Happiest thing was my YouTube Channel – MADRAASI where I got to share my video recipes; it’s been just 4 months but got wonderful and lovely response. Do like and subscribe with us for easy and simple VIDEO recipes.

A Home Chef event with Eastern Condiments at my home discovered the tutor in me and let me know that I can teach my recipes.

I also got to design a Beautiful visiting card for me as a Madraasi, never expected all these would happen, when I started my life as Housewife a decade back.

Coming to the blog through which I got connected with few wonderful people who has been my inspiration, motivation, energy booster,  support and would love to mention the name of a person among them – Geeta Sridhar who I address as Akka (elder sister), the way she smiles, works for society everyone should learn from her – a pride of WomenHood.

Worst part in last year – At the same time, also met the worst part of my blogging life and got to know that even people are ready to kill someone if they get something in blogging which involves copying, critizing fellow bloggers. Also experienced some strange things like getting added (unknowingly) to WhatsApp group and was thrown out as not being active (funny).

Social Media – Coming to social media, last year to be frank I was doing good with all my social media handles, but faced few bad experiences through Facebook and WhatsApp because of few people who loves the word “NEUTRAL” and I am frank to say that I am not “NEUTRAL” and don’t ever want to be “NEUTRAL” but love to be honest, faithful, trustworthy, positive, encouraging and friendly person.  My Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest which made me get connected and connecting with wonderful people. From the experience got through my Facebook and WhatsApp – I got to learn many things, which would help me survive in this blogging world.

Dream Came True – Apart from all these things, 2016 was being my dream came true year, as learnt stitching. I love being fashionate right from my childhood, but somehow it took these many years for my dream to come true. I did my basic stitching course where I got to learn the basics of stitching.  Happy, I got to stitch few varieties of frock and skirts for my daughter. Hopefully I will be heading to the next level in next couple of months.
