    Emotional post Satchi and you took everyone down memory lane. I have heard about it. I can understand how much you miss your mom so much.

    I used to make pavadai from my sarees for my daughters as could not buy Pattu pavadai for them. My younger daughter's friend used to like her Pattu pavadai though her mother used to buy pattu pavadai for her. Her mother used to buy everything for her but she used to like what I buy. Once she told me you should have been my mother.

    Sorry Vijima, I don't know how I missed your posts. Thanks a lot for the kind words. Yes, it does not matter whether we can afford new stuff or not, hand me downs from our parents are certainly very precious.

    @satchitananda, I would nominate this snippet if you'd allow it. I was nodding along with every line. :)

    Dear Satchi,

    I have read your snippet so many times now to understand how mother's saree is used in different forms to make the baby comfortable. One of them that came to my mind is Dhooli. Here is an article that is written about the benefit of making the baby sleep in Dhoolijooli. Nowadays, this method is dispensed with by most mothers.

    Why Traditional Indian Saree Made Hammock is Imporant for Infants, Saree Cradle, Dhooli/Jooli

    When I was growing up, I have seen many babies sleeping in it close to the floor. It does given them a lot of comfort while sleeping.

    Viswa

    Thanks a lot Amica. I read your feedback and am so sorry - I forgot to respond earlier. :-(
