The beginning…

… of a new series of celebrations in my life took place today – as in celebrations of festivals for the first time after marriage. Today, we celebrated Karadaiyan Nonbu, the first festival after I maalai maatthified. 🙂

It was fun knowing the significance of every little ritual constituting the pooja. It is difficult to describe the warm and happy feeling in my heart as I tied the madisaar, did the pooja, uttered

“Urugada Vennaiyum Oradaiyum Naan Tharuven
Orukaalum En Kanavar Ennai Piriyadirukkanum”,

tied the thread around my neck, and consumed the prasadam. I think it is for the first time in my life that I have celebrated Nonbu with so much enthusiasm and interest. 🙂 It was just different.

Happy Nonbu to all of you!
