Oh yes, another wedding you attended! Such fun...so many weddings back to back. One more to go on oct 12Th ,the last one . I love weddings  because it comes with  guarantee that my hubby will be with me . ( no matter what ) and Shama is in US for next one too.

I am at home. Went back to office today after taking all of last week off. I am happy to read you took time of for yourself . Do it again, vey soon .

Sunday was Gauri puja and we cooked five different rice-based items: lemon rice, coconut rice, khichdi, curd rice, and sweet pongal (look this up!). I grew up in Mumbai I don't needs to look up Pongal. Mom used to make it . She had South Indian girlfriend . . Did you keep the Vrat ? I think or correct me if I am wrong . Most unmarried women keep this Vrat for husband ( just like Shankar ) .  They fast or even follow nirjala day  . Usually, its just the family for Gauri puja, but this time, we had uncommon rush. There were visitors from Bangalore who joined us for the puja and added to the general confusion by wanting to do things their way. Finally, my mother lost it and put her foot down.  Way to go . visitor with well wishes is our culture . unavoidable problems . good for your mom . its only way to go .I was very " bad " during Shamas wedding because I was " not respecting " Others advise (?) Assigned cooking to me (imagine!) and the puja to herself and her sister. The rest were mere spectators. You in kitchen ? This makes me happy. So if push comes to shove you are good it it . What a relief . Try it you will love it . Cooking is very easy and satisfying . Great skill to have for a foodie . Not to please any one but to please yourself . 

Monday was Ganesh Chaturthi and we began the day really early. Puja had to start by 9.00 AM. Which meant that at least some part of the prasad had to be ready by then. We began cooking at about 5.30 AM and finished only at around 2.30.I remember this . Hated it then but want to do it all over again . Before you all faint, let me tell you that we had nearly 50 people coming in on that dayPartyGanapati day !! . Not all ate lunch with us, but everyone had to get some form of prasad. Which included modak, karanji, luddoo, kheer, masala rice, curd rice, koshimbhir, dal vada, and dal-chawal.I wished I was in Mumbai knowing bin bulaye mehamans are welcome for lunch or prasad .I wanted tobe one of the fifthy .Believe me, I prefer crazy deadlines to this mad rush. This year was especially rushed because Ganapati was supposed to be around only till Thursday. I caught myself complaining about the number of people...Heema, am not a good kidTongue It was crazy. I was just the same .Even my perfect sister used complain about number of guests and mother used to rant " atithi Devo Bhavo " up to this day we both hate and not believe this expression or belief . Every atithi at our home was pain in the butt . Why was he or she was called " Devo "so your are not a bad child . You are perfect human child ,who hates to do "unnecessary work "Oh  boy, I hated it too and still do .i rather work in my hell .

Visarjan was on Thursday. Cry This is always very sad .big let down. hard to cope .I remember crying after visarjan . The panditji told us that the puja has to be complete by 6 AM. So that meant another day of cooking from 4 AM onwards. But this was far simpler than the puja day and got done without hassle. We took the idol to the beach, did another small puja there and bid them farewell. Until next year. With great pleasure !!I love this festival because its social event and not private family affair and you get to see friends with your nutty family .

That was not a complete vrittant, Saumya, but the best I can manage right now. I have not added the fights and confusions that over-enthu relatives can cause. I wished you added this one too. That's more entertaining . I love when ladies  fight and mother in home has to  exercise her right . My way or highway style !  . Nor the blessings that God showers in the form of good friends who step in to help with the cooking!

BTW, Heema, I went to Lalbaug today for darshan. Wonder what it was...I finished darshan in 45 mins flat. We had heard all types of horror stories about people in queue for 18 hours and so on. I must share my  experience . Very painful  with happy ending . My parents had special privileges to this event but they didn't want their children to get this free . They wanted us to earn this respect . So every year me and my sister visit this sight and come home because of the long lines ( many miles long ) . I tried this every med school year and residency year . Begged my parents but they refused . Finally final year of my residency . One day when I was on call, nothing was happening . Knowing the proximity of the place my coworker and I  went for Kakad Aarati . 4 am and only 100 people were at the Aarati . It was unforgettable  sight. Made my parents proud of me .

I wanted to to use every color and make this very colorful like the festival . But some colors are not readable  . You can tell I had free time at work because now onwards fifth year residents are in charge   of  the Morning rounds ! ( I am so happy)  . So this time will be free of headaches !

Have fun all of you! See you tomorrow!


 Hey . Thank you for posting this . Yes , I know this one . And I love this one . I have a CD and we play this all the time . Not for praying but just to relax . Very relaxing to  listen while driving to work at 4: 45 am.

Name Shankar Mahadevan  confused me . Because I thought Atul and Ajay" the brothers "did this one  for  the movie . I forgot the name of the movie but may be I am wrong . I think this is the  one masterpiece !! Very well done .thanks !

 Nothing really happened . It was great   experience   for fans . moderator told us that ,Whatever we write is public property and any gossip news paper can legally use it . They do visit IF forum to get gossips and fan opinion.  l think ,  this is one of  reason for Sumit and Rati  uncomfortable offscreen  relationship .disapproval of this Jodi on HD forum . 
    I think Saumya is right . Vijay  wanted to handle this in private . we will never know about  that interaction .Rajnini should have protested this but she didn't.  But the thread went haywire .( I wasn't surprise ) .

 My break is over. Back to hell. Very busy morning. See you for lunch ( I hope)
