Every year i would be away for most of onam's 12 days(its 12 guys!! not 10!!). Even last year i was at work. This year, as my new job is near home and has holidays, i was home (yay!) and i think all those years i was at hostel, were more fun. The anticipation and all.
Mom's hand had an injury just prior to onam, so unlike every year, our roles were reverse this year. I cooked and she make pookkalam. So we understood two things
1. Our pokkalam will suck despite who made them.
2.I cook better than mom. And i am faster. And organised too. And this is not being said because its my blog. Mom will agree. Still i am bloody proud of myself. :D *applause*
On the last day of onam, Aqui made biriyani, which went to prove that he is a better cook than me. :| :| and :|
About TV, the BIG TV we got last onam is running well. But the remote is not. Confession time- I dropped it in water. Accidentally. I swear. And no one in family knows.. they will tear me apart!! So shhh...
Its sad to see onam being branded as a hindu fest. Its SO not! Its a Kerala fest which celebrate the harvest, the richness, the food, family time and a very awesome king who lived godknowswhen.
Onam online was fun! And its so happy seeing all the mallu guys and gals interacting online and having a fest of our own.
So, Happy Onam :)
PS: i know tons of excellent pictures online. But why this? I made it. *shameless laugh*
