Happy Sankranti to everyone. Coming back from a memorable trip back home after nearly 6 years, I can easily see what I have been missing all these years, The festivals. What better place to celebrate the festivals than your own blog.This picture was taken from one of the streets of good old Vijayawada which holds all my childhood memories.

    Hey Venu
    Nice picture.
    What you said is so true... The last couple of years ever since I have been in the US,( probably this applies to most of my friends too), every big festival that we anxiously waited for back home ... is not even an event here. There have been years we forgot that the day was diwali or Chaturthi until we got an ecard from someone back home. Most of all you miss all the splendor and gaiety and ofcourse all the mouth watering sweets and snacks that are characteristic of the festival ...

    Oh Venu you've sent me on a nostalgic trip .. I better stop here before the comment becomes a blog by itself ;)

    Nice Rangoli Picture again!!

    Hey Venu,

    Hmm..I get what you are saying. Well I missed all the festivals this year ( being my first year in the USA) Happy Sankranti to U! Well..I know that for Sankranti in Goa ( if I am not wrong) we go to people's houses and they give us tilgul( some candy thing with sesame I guess) to eat.And then say "tilgul ghya god god bola" ( Eat the tilgul and talk sweet things). Uh! I miss everything! I missed Diwali the most!
    Anyways..happy blogging and thanks a lot for the pictures of Mannat! U ROCK!!!!
