    This year my Vishu started very nicely. Two days back I went and bought vegetables. This time got a big Snakegourd. Then my dh bought all the fruits. Seeing them only I was very happy. My sis in law is in hospital who is 81 years old. So was worried about her also. Usually men only keep the Vishu Kani and early morning after lighting the diya and breaking the coconut call everyone to see the Vishu Kani. Youngsters get Vishu Kani nottam from the elders. Its not the money but getting a 1 Rupee Coin on Vishu day is also a great thing.

    Yesterday night I put Rangoli, got the Silver Vilakku and Pithalai Vilakku ready by putting Chandan Kumkum, thiri and Oil. I went to sleep at 11.30 pm but could not get sleep. Then 12.00 a.m. sent vishu greetings to both my daughters as they are abroad. Then dont know when I went off to sleep. I knew myhusband got up at 5 a.m. Was waiting for him to call me. Before that only in our front room right in front of my eyes Ganeshji always blesses me early in the morning because when I get up I can see Him. My in law's, brothe rin law and parents who are no more their photo is also there. Then when my dh called first took their blessings and then wento see the Vishu . As there was no place had kept the Mirror with gold chain and on a Chair and in front of that A Vessel with Rice . My dh had kept the coconut in one half 1 rupee and 2 ruppe coins and in the other half the kani poo. Continuous 3 years we had got lucky draw gold coin from Fine Arts. Kept that also in Vishu Kani. Saw all the vegetables which were kept, the fruits and my heart was full seeing everything. I think this Vijaya Varsham is going to be very good.

    Then after taking bath we went to a school where Ram Navami celebration is going on and they had kept Vishu kani. Took photos There was Ganpathy pooja waited till that was over . One mama gave us 1 rupee coin, took Lords's blessings , after the pooja took the prasadam and from there went to Guruvayurappan temple , they had kept Vishu Kani very nicely. In the top Guruvayurappan , in between Ganpathi , in the sides Radha Krishna and down a Mirror in front the Vegetables and Fruits which we can see in the Mirror too and then two elephants facing the Lord. A big Urali was there which was full of Notes. One Mama gave us 1 rupee coins , took his blessings and came back home.

    Made Pongal and Avial. My son and dil came gave them Vishu Kani. Since we were going for Laksharchana in the school just offered Milk and Pongal to Lord, wanted to make sweet but it was already time up. Thought God will understand. We dont forgive people when they make mistakes but He is great always ready to forgive and accept whatever is given to him with full heart.

    My dh wen tto Laksharchana, I first went to see my sis in law with Pongal and Avial and brought some fruits also and took my brother and sis in law's blessings and took vethilai pakku for sis in law. She was very happy and tears were there in her eyes as she could not be at home for Vishu. Was there for an hour , went for Laksharchana and had lunch there. Came back home by 1 pm. Tried to upload the photos taken at home and the School but my bad luck they are not getting uploaded. Must be God thought to test me little. Anyway I am not the person to give up. Will try to upload later and share with you all.

    There were many phone calls and sms wishing for vishu and I have not replied yet for the sms due to short of time. Took some rest in the afternoon. Now thinking of Going for Harikatha on Ramayana. DH is ready I have to grind for dosa. So let me take leave :)

    Happy Vishu to all of you, May God bless you all an dfulfill your wishes and keep you healthy and happy

    That was a lovely description of your Vishu Kani Vijima. Wish I were there to share. I really miss the Vishu Kani Appa used to arrange at home and being woken up in the mornings by Appa and Amma for a darshan of the Vishu Kani. :-D What to do, life goes on.

    Wish you and Mama a very happy Vishu and a happy, healthy New Year ahead.
