Sambarala Sankranthi...

This is my second SANKRANTHI out here in states, a festival which signifies new beginnings for farmers, the harvest festival of south, and the one which is very close to my heart, considering we got to spend time in Guraza, my granny's place, and see all the festivities mentioned HERE. It is our very own "Thanksgiving Festival" to the Gods for the good harvest that we get after a whole year's hard work.

This time around too, it is quite cold over here and I am missing my ammamma and without her back home in India or here, it is one kind of one and the same for me other than that I am trying to relive her memories by continuing the tradition but that enthusiasm of sharing it with her is GONE FOREVER.

Got a new rice bag and groceries along with fresh fruit, sugarcane, etc. to signify the harvest beginnings, well it is not one and the same but yes a good substitute.

Wish each and everyone a very happy Sankranthi.
