Mid-night snack or Early morning breakfast

Mouth- watering yummy….


The best time of the day is when you go for a walk to the beach at 3am in the morning and then decide to hit the upside restaurant in front of the beach to dig in some mouth-watering yummy food. What makes it even better is the calm and serene poolside ambience, few besties and some evergreen melodies playing in the background.

Thank you Srilanka for this heavenly experience…!!!

A Wish a Day

I generally relate birthdays to yummy birthday cakes and birthday cakes to birthday candles and candles to birthday wishes….yeah long connection ๐Ÿ˜‰

But what if we make one wish every day and work towards making it true…something as simple as making someone smile just for today…

I wish .....

I wish …..

A wish a day and see how simple happiness can be ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Prosperity

In India, Rice has always been considered as a symbol of prosperity since ages… the primary reason being that India wasย  & is still traditionally a farmer’s country.

Hence when we worship Goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth,prosperity and success; a cup of rice is always decorated besides the idol to venerate the goddess and pray that wealth and prosperity always keeps flowing in the house. Decided to focus of that symbol for this year….

Symbol of Prosperity

In Bengal, a lot of families worship Maa Lakshmi on Kojagari night rather than Diwali night.

Alpona, Luchi, Naaru are few of the delicacies that are prepared for the festivities. ๐Ÿ˜€

Kojagari Lakshmi Puja 2012 โ€“ II

Pujo time is always fun…getting together with family, meeting up friends, yummy food and a flavour of everything nice in the atmosphere ๐Ÿ™‚

Priest in a Pose

Watch out the attitude in his looks….hehehe….My Rockstar Dad!!

Chandan (Red and White)

There are basically two types of sandalwood paste used for the puja (white and red)…the book you see contains the chants for the puja, also called as “Lokkhi Broto Kotha” in Bengali

Ghat with Banana and Mango leaves

Setting up the ghot in front of the idol is one of the most imp aspects of the puja. It consists of water from the river Ganges with a banana placed on a twig of the Mango tree and a silver/gold coin

Offering Pushpanjali

Pushpanjali == Pushpa (flowers) + Anjali (Offering)

In short, it means offering flowers to the Goddess and chanting for evoking her blessings
