Lakshmi Pooja and Raksha Bandan


Lakshman, Ram and Sita - the main deity at the temple

Since it was Varalakshmi pooja today, i had been to the nearest Hindu mandir along with my nearest neighbours Harini and Ulaganathan.

Though i had heard about this temple from my colleagues, i never had been there. It was only due to the neighbours pressure , i was forced to know about this temple!!!!. This was the first time i am going to this temple. Harini anni had made strains to bring some sweets and fruits to the temple. It was a Ram temple and i could assume that the management has taken a full house and restructured to form a temple.

The pooja was nice. Harini anni offered the the sweets and fruits at the padam of the Lord to get the lords wishes. Due to this there was a special pooja offered to us by the pujari. OC'la kadavulooda wishes..!!!! ..

Eventually, we offered the same sweets and fruits to the worshipers as prasadam.

Then came a surprise to me, Ulaganathan sir said Harini wants to tie the rakhi to you. All this time both of them have hidden the rakhi in their bag. It was a total surprise for me. If that's your wish, i said...go ahead anni.

Later she tied the Rakhi to my hand and Ulaganathan sir took snap to catch this moment. Since Rakhi was tied suddenly, i could not give her a present. Atleast manasu vanthu 5 pounds koduthen....
