Splendid. A deepam reminds us of the current karthikai deepam festival.
It shows your love for following and maintain our cultural ethos and traditions.
It reminds of the celebration over many many years.
On a rectangular plank made of mango tree bark, my spouse and I jointly with my daughter used to arrange the earthen as well as metal lamps, fill them with oil and cotton wicks etc. a multitude of wick lamps lighted in short time and in that glow the sight of my own people like my mother spouse and daughter used to fill me with great pleasure and pleasant feelings.

Thank you for pointing out this. I tried in vain to know the correct name.
But help me with correct name of the flowers that are floating in your above posted image.
Popularly called idly poo in tamil, (I know it only as this) is explained in wikipedia as Ixora coccinea (also known as jungle geranium, flame of the woods or jungle flame or pendkuli) is a species of flowering plant in the family Rubiaceae. It is a common flowering shrub native to Southern India, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka.
Thank you sister. I think it is also known by some other name in tamil. It is at the back of the mind but refuse to come to ...
I expect a word from you sister on this score.
