Visualize life !

To accomplish something in life you have to think big . You can never think small and accomplish something big . The saying ' leap of faith' yes you have to have that faith and think of having something you want . You keep dreaming of it no you won't get it , to accomplish you have to work for it . You can't go and eat a sandwich and say I want it ! Hopeless !
Keep visualizing and work hard for it , you will definitely get what you want! Everything is possible if you badly need it ! !

Funky monkey and the colored feather !

Few of my sketch art . These days it's funky colorful school days thoughts ! Happens , right ?

Hey funky monkey 
Don't hang around 
Your make up would vanish 
And your hair clip would fall off 
Listen to kili singing la la la 
And dance dub dub ! 

Oh beautiful ! 
Would you give me a feather? 
I promise I will keep it safe 
Between the pages of my book !

Childhood hobbies ! Everybody would have definitely had a hobby . Whether you still collect them or not is with you !
So mine was collecting coins , stamps , feathers, car models, shells so many . I have been so active from my childhood and I still do all these . I have the habit of writing diaries too :) I used to collect fishes also . When the gushes deliver babies I exchange it and buy the fishes which I like . I still have 70 fishes in my house at Dubai .
Today I decided to open my old school bag and looked into my coin collection . Thought of taking a pic of few coins and posting it here .

I am still stuck in my childhood !

Did you like it ? What all were your hobbies ? Do you still continue ? So many question .

Anyhow bye for now !

Tail and the tongue !

The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue 

What is wonderful quote !

So this is what I thought today . How loyal a dog is ?I don't think even humans could be that loyal and lovable  . But obviously I am not comparing a dog and a human . Just posting what I feel .

You see your dog after 10 years still they will come to you with the same love . But do they have a family like us ? Brother , sister , cousins . Lol no ! But we have everything but won't know the value of it ! That's the truth.

I wish humans had the loyalty, love  and friendship that a dog has !

I have no idea why I thought about a dog at 12 am but yea our thoughts are like monkeys !!

What do you think ? I think wagging tail is better than a license less tongue

Fourth step has balambigai and krishna with chattiyar chattichi, kalasam and few other small idols

The last step is always dedicated to the varalakshmi and ashtalakshmi . I keep these  in the bottom step so that it will be easy to do data saraswathi pooja .

On the floor I have kept kacheri set , stage show. It's an induction stove box I converted to a stage by sticking red velvet paper :)

On the side, I kept two steps

Idols 2016

So before the Navarathri starts day after tomorrow thought of posting the new idols I bought for this year . Once the steps are set with decorations I will be posting a blog in detail .

Whenever I buy these idols I think my grandchildren's will say one day these are all the old idols which my grandma collected from India  ! Though I don't know where they will live or where i will be , I believe they will cherish all these !

I know I am thinking too much but still happens :) At times you should think too much and feel happy !

Arupadai veedu 




Murugan with valli deivanai 


Balambigai and krishna

Adyantha prabhu!

Navarathri or Dasara is one of the most celebrated festival in India . It's a time of enjoyment . I love being in India during this time . I love decorating and inviting people home . The best part is everyday is like a red carpet !

This time I went to buy some idols and happened to see this one . Half ganapathy and half hanuman . I asked the shop guy , what idol is this ? He said its "Adhyantha prabhu".

I decided to do a google search and know what is it all about . Posting what I read for you all .

What begins has to end. This is nature. If there is one thing that has no beginning or end it is Almighty. If there is one thing that is beginning and/or end in its self it is Aadhyanta Prabhu Almighty. That is why we pray to Almighty by invoking His name thus: adi, aanadi, antham, anantham, anthadi. Whenever we begin anything we offer our prayers to Vignesh, the deity who protects from all hindrances, hence Vignesh. When the things are achieved ie., Jayam we thank the deity Hanuman and conclude. This is observed in all our endeavors, even in offering daily prayer rule is no exception. There was an intuition on a fine day that in this temple both these two peerless deities (Vignesh and Hanuman) are seen as one like that of Sri Ardhanareeswara an amalgam of Siva and Sakthi, and Sri Shankaranarayanar an amalgam of Siva and Narayana.

The very conception of the fusion of Vinayaka and Anjaneya forms in one icon has a great esoteric significance . It is fortified by the truth of the oft-quoted adage -.begin with Piliayar and end up with Anjaneya, being dinned at the ears of peoplemore often than not. The unique sight of the amalgamation of two potent and highly worshipful deities, invariably sends such thrills in the spines of the viewers that they raise their hands in veneration unknown to themselves.  Needless to emphasise, that prayers offered to this archamurti fetches double benefits, like two flowers obtained at a single pick.

Happy tummy !

When it comes to food you just have to eat it ! Either find it or you prepare it . I fall in the second category. If I need something badly I will learn it . So for now , it's a simple dish that I wanted to eat in the evening most of the days . It's been years since I stopped eating masala chats . But the sudden madness for masalas popped in and this is what I ended up with
The yummy yummy bhel puri !
Without knowing how to make it , I bought it from a shop for 4 days but I knew I can't do it everyday.

So I decided to do it myself . This recipe was told over the call by Naveen and I made it . I wish I make a huge bowl of bhel puri for him everyday ;)

The easiest way goes here !

-Put some puffed rice in a vessel.

-Cut some onions and tomatoes to add

-Sprinkle some water ! Don't overdo !

-Add salt, chilli powder, coriander powder and mix .

-For flavors add some coriander leaves and stir the mixture .

Note- curd and  sev are optional! 

Keep your tummy happy and add some meaning to life !!

As always I prepare yummy food for that extra kiss ;)

Our onam

Trying my best to keep it short .

Onam for me is a festival of flowers , food and new dress . I remember drawing the designs for my class on the floor . Only designing was my job the rest my friends would do . Most of the times we have won . Roaming on the backyard for flowers and those small floral designs I make with my brother and sister .Those were the days , childhood .

After growing up its like preparing good food with all the love and eating . Do not wonder, I don't have a traditional Kerela saree . I don't like it .

My favorite part of onam is floral designs and the must be menu , Aviyal ( mouth watering )!!!

Posting few pictures of our onam celebration!

Any festival can be celebrated by anyone . Everyday is a celebration !

Always celebrate with the little you have , life would be happy !!
