    Thank you very much for your thought and concern to post these festival dates though no celebration for you this year. I always depended on my elder sister for these dates. She kept updating me. She also lost her mom-in-law in April, hence no festival for her too this year. Was really trying to check all the festival dates, by then your mail came as a boon.

    Thanks v much once again.

    Best

      Thanks, Chetana. There are some traditions which I struggle to follow, but some which I love to follow. Hard to strike a balance.

      Vijaya,
      I faintly remember what was done. I know we did that in a grand fashion, and gave saree I guess to my Mom. It has been 15 years, so don’t really remember.

    Meeraji,

    In the calender you have mentioned Aug 9th is Ekadasi and Aug 16th also as Ekadasi. I think it is typing error.Please correct it.
