Mods, please consider leaving this thread here as I wanted to know what mom's think. Ladies, I am in a serious dilemma. My parents are here from July 28th to Sept 2nd, 2011. I wanted my seemantham/Valikappu (Godh Bharayi) when they are here. Now, unfortunately my SIL is telling me that there are no good dates between 17th July and 28th Aug :drowning. It seems, July 17th to Aug 16th is Aadi month and July 29th to Aug 27th is waning phase of the moon (thei pirai). This means that July 17th to Aug 27th, there are no good dates! My husband already told them that we cant make it on 29th and 30th Aug. This leaves us exactly 1 day in the entire 6 weeks, which is 31st Aug. This also they are saying that only after 3rd sept there are good dates. Even if my parents re-schedule their ticket now, since I would be in 6th month then, my MIL said I cant have the function. I am feeling dejected, betrayed, disappointed and what not! What should I do? What woud you do? I am going crazy....I really want this done properly when my parents are here. I find it very hard to belive that in the entire 6 weeks of my parents stay, there is not a single date! What would you do in my place?
