Typical Tam Bram hymeneals

Attended my first cousin Swathi's wedding. Managed to get pictures from my sister only now.
The first word that strikes me when I envisage a Tam Bram wedding is a "Marathon". A three day fun and frolic filled event for all of us involving a lot of leg pulling activity courtesy scores of cousins, sumptuous lunch for us, the non-stop rituals, changing sarees often, those heavy jewellery, managing the nine yard saree and repeating those hymns.No wonder one gets to learn to be patient by then.Indeed attending other's wedding is really enthralling.

Happy Birthday Papa

Here is me wishing you Happy Birthday Dad.You have reached another milestone in your life,though you stay young mentally.Wishing you good health,peace and tons of love from me,deedhi and mom.

I owe you so much...

for all things I love thee

waiting for a lending ear
for I fear telling here

I miss your care
Is it fine and fair

Am waiting to come home
all these days was only hearing on phone
the cubbie in her den
literally waiting to have some fun

so here I am scribing
with a euphoric feeling
and a li'l cribbing
after weeks of dilly dallying
some crooning and some drooling

those pillion rides,tho…
