    Dear Chithra,
    Thank you for posting the link to enlighten me about Edhir Sevai (1st time I have heard this name). I would love to visit Madurai during my vacation, so my children will learn about this lovely place!:-D


    Regards
    USHA

    Dear Vmur,
    Thanx a ton for posting the Dinamalar link. I could have not had a close dharshan as this, even if I had been to Madurai for this event.

    Regards
    USHA

    Dear Usha,
    I love your showing interest in my town.
    Since the Madurai people go & "ethir kondu azaikkarathu" Kallazakar, it is called Ethir Sevai !
    I would love to join you, if circumstnces permit, when you plan a Madurai trip !
    Things will happen, God willing, Usha!
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Dear Vidya,

    It was only today that I am able to open the link and see the pictures of Madurai Meenakshi's Thirukkalyanam. They are wonderful pictures and thanks for posting all of them. I have never seen anything like this, it was a feast to the eyes and a revelation. Like said before, even if I were in Madura, I doubt if I would have braved such thronging crowd and if I did, I doubt if I could have had such a clear view. Enjoyed seeing the pictures. Thanks again.

    L, Kamla

    Why is the Devi addressed as Piriyavidai..what does that mean? Can you or Chithra or anyone in the know how explain?
