A wonderful gift by my sis in law(my brother's wife)

Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something. They're trying to find someone who's going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take. - Anthony Robbins

Karthigai is a festival of lights celebrated by South Indians in the month of Karthigai which is between November 15th and December 15th every year. The women decorate inside and outside the house with many diyas which are kept on the rangoli drawn by them.

This festival is celebrated for the health of their brothers by the women. The brother gives cash to their sister. My sister in law gives me a gift every year for Karthigai which can be preserved always. This year she gave me a bedsheet in which she had done wonderful patch work. Here is the lovely gift
