All the posts were lovely. Hey but you made 2 sweets and 1 chivda if Nankatai can be counted as a sweet ;). I loved the feeling of excitement that was brimming in the posts.

I am in the 'e-mail preferring gang too!

Oh - you said 'no' to ghee-laden too - that's too bad. It'll have to be dal-roti-sabzi for a whole year then! Good luck. :D We're watching (tell D)!



Hope you had a lovely Diwali, Manisha :)

Kribha, I'd like to flatter myself and believe that I have made an impression. This post was all about traditions, rituals and chants. I'm glad you found it informative and enjoyed reading it!



Nice informative post. Enjoyed reading it.

2007-11-12T12:11:00.000-07:00

Dinzie, there's always next year! The dinner after the cultural program was to die for. There was something from almost every corner of India - too much food, of course!

Saju and Musy, facebook? I wish. I tried last year to get my classmates from my Bachelors class to keep in touch via forums. It died because everyone prefers email - hit reply to all instead of going to another site. These are people who are tech savvy, IT specialists and use computers every day of their lives. Forums serve a purpose, you don't miss any communication. If you're new to the list, you can catch up by reading older posts. But we're back to email. Sigh.

And, I sent my sister an invitation to Facebook several weeks ago. She still hasn't figured out what she needs to do! So I give up.


Latha, it was wonderful! Everyone knew what they were doing and why they were doing it. It made the whole puja far more meaningful than when the Pandit comes in, does his thing, and makes you do stuff. We didn't feel peripheral to the process anymore. There wasn't a single bored or whiny child in the auditorium.

Anita, I'm sure there are Devnagari versions floating about. I, too, prefer Devnagari even though it takes me a while to read it but at least I know how to pronounce the shlokas.

In Chicagoland, the prayers used to be in Devnagari and the Roman script, with the English translation. The kids can't read Devnagari so this is easier for them, especially as everyone was repeating after Vivek-Uncle. So pronunciation was not an issue.

And, nankatais may not be deep fried but they are ghee-laden!

2007-11-12T08:59:00.000-07:00

Noted for next year. I find it hard to read Sanskrit shloks or mantras in the English script - I'll look for the Lakshmi Ashtotram in the Devnagri script.

Yup, plenty of deep-frying for a long time. Err, cookies and nankatai are not deep fried foods though...thank God! :D

You have done a great writeup on Diwali!:) The tradition of organising recitals is dying in cities in India! Such a nice way to relax! Hope you had a wonderful diwali!:)
