    Sometimes it's those little unexpected things in life that can make a big difference to us.

    Today was a day with surprises. First there was a phone call from my school friend who has been my close friend from 1957, till now we have contact with each other and we had a long chat. Then from morning suddenly my favourite site could not be logged in. Without sharing my experiences I feel lost. They say na in tamil mandai vedichchu poydum.

    Today is my Office colleagues Birthday with whom I have worked for 36 years and we were very close. For his wife also I only selected name after they got married. Today I phoned him to wish him after a long time and he was so surprised and we had a long chat.

    Today is my another close friend's Birthday with whom I used to travel in train and also in Contract Bus and our offices were nearby. It was a surprise that she came home with Payasam and flowers and Plantain. I felt happy because getting a flowers and plantain sitting at home from a Sumangali is very great for me. Also I could offer thambulam to her. Aadi Velli has been very good for me. Also I was happy that I could give her Ven pongal, Rava Kesari and she enjoyed.

    Only thing I am missing my favourite site. Hope that is also solved by tomorrow

    :hello:Kudos to sister. You had posted on this auspicious day describing your nice recollections & remembrances.
    2. It is nostalgic in the sense, it brought before my eyes my late beloved mother on this auspicious Friday of AADI when she used to have lots of sumangali visitors exchanging thamboolam on a platter and sweet dishes.
    3. A very senior sumangali lady but younger to my mother called on my mother at around 8 in the morning with beetal (வெத்தலை )leaves and nuts + blouse piece and a coconut kernel . Seeking mother’s blessings, she genuflects with tears of joy rolling down her cheeks.
    The cause for her joy - Then later I came to know, her husband returning home being discharged after successful bypass a month before.
    4. The scene in temples and Hindu homes indoor and outdoor in mylapore and Triplicane on this auspicious day wears festive look.
    Wish u happy AAdi Friday.
    Regards.
    God’s foyer decorated with rangoli.

    Dharsan of Goddess Akilandeswari in golden kavacham was very famous.People from far away places used to throng the temple.My friend's father passed away on Aadi Velli.Her mother made a golden parrot out of the thirumangalya chain and thirumangalyam( which she was wearing for 80 long years) and the parrot adorns the hands of Akilandeswari.Amma used to be very busy in preparing modakam or maa vilakku.Thank you Viji for reminding about Aadi Velli.In our place we had Lalitha sahasranama parayanam and didtribution of sundal and sarkarai pongal to everyone.
