Gowri Ganesha Festival Pictures – 2013

It was a festive day yesterday. Just the thought of doing pooje to our Lord Ganesha lit up the mind. As always, the blog, the computer and the phone assisted us in many many ways. 🙂

Attached are some pictures of the greatest festival at my place, my sisters place and Shree Siva Vishnu Temple which we visited in the evening, before our evening pooje.

      Yes, indeed. I remember as a kid going to everyone’s house and asking ” Ganapathi kudisidirra”, it means in English “Have you kept Lord Ganesha”. It was just so much fun as a kid. Miss all those years.

    Belated Wishes for Gowri-Ganesha festival! Hats off to you! It is just amazing that you are managing your career, house and above all following our culture and tradition. The same to your husband & daughter as well. His chaklis look so good. This year my husband helped me a lot in doing the vratha. Since, I had a month old baby in hand, he did the entire cooking for both the days. The ambode & kadubu came much more excellent than mine. Our friends also said the same. It made me very happy & proud at the same time.

      Belated wishes to you as well. Congrats on your new born as well.

      And thanks so much for the kind words. My Husband just loves this festival, and remembers as a child how he went to many many houses to see 108 Ganeshas, and how much his Mom cooked during this festival. Memories are so good, how I wish we could bring them all back.
