Sadabishekam 80th Birthday


80th Birthday or, more exactly 80 years and 8 months.

Yesterday 11-05-2018 was the Sadabishekam of Vijaya's cousin Mr. Lakshminarayanan (aka DINAMANI). He and his wife live in Pune City and they came to Sri Vedavyasar Tapovanam near Tambaram, Chennai to celebrate it.

He had invited me over the phone and then sent the Invitation also. Yesterday (11th May) we two left house by 6-00 and reached the venue by 6-30. Many persons had gathered already. Lalita and Kumar came by 7-30. We had breakfast there.

Maangalya tharanam was over by 8-15 and the function came to an end. Though we wanted to return then, Mt Dinamani insisted to take Lunch also. So we waited, had lunch by 12-15 and left by 1-15 PM.

It was a very hot day. Dinamani's 4 brothere (Dhanyan, Babu, Venkatesh, Krishnan) had come and also Mr Srivathsan.

Vijaya had a great day with her cousins. God Bless all.


ADITI DRAMA 8-May-2018

There was Aditi Drama at Bhartiya Vidya Bhavan, East Mada Street, Mylapore on 8th May 2018.(Tuesday). We two left house by 4-45 PM and went to Sri Adi Kesava Perumal Koil and Sri Srinivasa Perumal Koil first. We are going to these temples after 5 or 6 years. The water tank of the temple is dry, very dry. Once, it was brimming with water.

Next we walked to East Mada Street. Since it was very earlt, we went to Mami's Mess nearby, and had bondas. We took a parcel for Aditi or someone else. (We gave it to Lalita-Kumar) Then we entered Bhartia Vidya Bhavan, took our seats. Later Lalita-Kumar also came and they sat next to us.

The drama started by 7PM; actually there were 4 bits of drama skits each for 25-30 minutes. Aditi's was the second. It was uproarious, with Aditi shining all the way. God Bless the child.
