    In the meanwhile, if any of the I L ites can share their knowledge, I will be only too happy.

    Dear Chithra,

    I'm very very impressed by this thorough & detailed instructions for sumangali praarthanai ---- :clap felt like I was literally in my mother's cousin's home where it is usually done . Even my mum wouldn't be able to give such a comprehensive guide .....You are soooooooooooooo :2thumbsup: good !!

    Do you have a similarly detailed procedure for valaikaapu seemantham ??

    Love,
    Dew.

    Dear Panithuli,
    Thanks for the nice, flattering F B. I just want posterity, particularly N R I s to know the procedure, incase there is no eldery family member around.
    So far I have not drafted for valaikappu seemantham, since nobody asked !:icon_frown:
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Dear Chitra Madam,
    The pondugal explanation was very good. I immediately took the printout. I think in my MIL's house no one has done pondugal after my marriage. Still it is good to keep it up.

    Please also post someother great functions. You are truly a God's Gift. I am already talking about you with my mom.

    With lots of love,
    Birundha

    Dear Birundha,
    Thankyou for the flattering words.
    Yes, I plan to write about other functions - typical S I style, in due course.
    Do not call me God's gift - I am the usual stereotyped S I Mylapore Mami ! God's gift to us I L forum - it has given us all a common meeting ground !
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Sorry..forgot to add in my prev post...
    In particular, what would be very useful is the things that are normally required for the event, who should be given what (typically) and some basic formalities which are to be followed irrespective of specifics pertaining to family customs / individual circumstances etc.

    Thanks and love
    Pavithra
