Hi, I am a Keralite Iyer and would like somebody knowledgeable or follow this cultural tradition to explain me about things required to do UdagaShanthi, Vallakappu and Seemandham. I would like to know what i have to do and perform them accordingly. I did read through some threads especially "Valaikappu & Seemantham" by Chitvish. However i am not sure if this practice is followed as such by Keralite Iyers or are there differences if any. Please highlight on all the functions performed. In addition i would also like to know if the black bangle worn by new born baby is glass or plastic or metal? I am eagerly looking forward for a response. Thanks.
