Here is my Chariot

I have drawn a chariot, inside the rangoli I have written Ram. Hope you all willlike it. I know it has not come to my satisfaction, the padam should have been in the middle, but no patience to draw it again. Your comments please

Mehndi put by my niece's daughters during marriage

This Mehndi was put by my dh's  niece's daughter when her periamma's daughter was getting married. The marriage was in Pune. My dh's sister has two daughters and one son. The niece's daughters and her brother's daughter are very close. After a long time I had put mehndi in my hands.

Niece's daughters and her brother's daughter were telling me , aunty on your 50th Wedding Anniversary we will dress you up as a bride. Whether it willhappen or not I was very happy to hear them say that and felt as if I was already celebrating 50th Wedding Anniversary. Its the love that counts and the love they have for me.

The bond between mother and child

Myself and my husband had gone to Dubai in March to my daughter's house and were there for a month. I had the opportunity to meet my Indusladies site friends also. It was nice of my son in law to take us to all my friend's house and one or two places my daughter took me. Since my grand daughter is also there we enjoyed a lot. Had the opportunity to visit the different places also in Dubai.

On New Year's day one of my Indus Site friend Vijaya had come with her daughter Sandhya. Both are very friendly and loving and we did not feel that we are meeting for the first time. Sandhya was all the time taking photos of my granddaughter , Gopika. One of the photos is this one which I liked it very much. . It has come out natural and shows the bond between a mother and daughter. When I see this photo it reminds me of Goddess Mary with a child, Yashoda with Krishna. Such a beautiful photo it is and has come natural.

They were happy that they could take our blessings on New year's day. They had come with thambulam, lot of jasmine flowers, plantain, haldi , kumkum, a gold plated tray for me, Shiva idol with stones for my daughter and a cute bag which Gopika is holding and so pleased with the gift given by them. I wanted them to have lunch at our place but they only had payasam. Here is the tray given by them .
