    This year Navratri was without much ladies. Luckily the bldg ladies came two at a time.
    Though I have no strength with God's grace and elder's blessings and husband's support I could celebrate Navratri making neivedyam Morning and evening. My maid gone to native place so more work.

    Besides bldg ladies three of my.friends from out also came and gave me thambulam My close friend Mira Murli gave me half a dozen or more croched dress for my Unnikrishnan. That was a memorable gift which I will treasure. My another close called me home.

    Glad I could decorate two Devis. Yesterday I had finished the flowers given by.flowerwoman thinking I can buy in the evening. I took thambulam for her but she was not there. Had to go a little far to see other woman. Met my daughter's mil and we both went.Luckily she had chutta jasmine and arli poo and jasmine garlands. It was costly but thought might be Devi's wish to do archana with jasmine and offer jasmine Garland. t was looking very nice with jasmine and arli.

    Thambulam brought for flower woman gave to mil and felt happy. Q

    Anyway happy that Navratri went well this year by God's grace.

    Thanks to my husband who supported me and ate whatever I prepared

    :hello:The narration must have had bestowed great satisfaction to you as you consider informing about it to your virtual friends is one of your festival priorities.
    A fine addition to your Golu the Crochet crafts gifted to you by your bosom friend. A pleasing display of dolls. You are truly blessed.

    A mere read of narration of your celebrations reminded me of my mom who on the final day of Navarathri festival much against my spouse and Dad’s wish proceeded with her yellow cloth bag with thamboolams to meet her senior friends in the neighbourhood. It was heavily raining. Despite this she managed to meet her sumangali lady of ninety year old. When we were all anxious, she returned home with glee and Sundal Prasadam.

    Regards.

    Nice to hear of your navarathri. The crochetted dress is very pretty. As we age, it does get tiring to maintain the same level of activity, especially during navarathri that requires doing puja/nevedyam 2 times on all the days. Still the satisfaction of puja gone well, is surely there. May Ambal bless all of us with good health, wealth and prosperity.

    Very nice, Viji auntie..it’s great to hear the efforts taken by you for Navaratri at this age also..and efforts to give Tamboolam to other ladies without leaving this tradition..
    But also pls be safe and avoid unnecessarily meeting anyone, even neighbours..
    If at all you step out of the home to meet anyone or do an essential errand, please take all precautions...because anyone can be an asymptomatic carrier .
    Nice to know that you’re a Sai Baba devotee...
    OM Sai Ram.

    I was under the wrong impression that Navaratras are celebrated so hugely in South India. My stay in Chennai in 1963-64 did not give me that impression.
    Wishing you very happy Navratras and Dashera.
