With power comes responsibility

With the advent of Shravan month (read “shh-ra-van”) Indian homes are all decked up and pretty to welcome wealth and prosperity with a host of festivals. Inspite of being married for over 3 years, this is the first year that I would be independently celebrating most of these festivals. (yay!!)

I love it, I get to decorate my house, decorate the idols and celebrate each festival my way! In my bachelorette days, my job was to HELP decorate the house, HELP with prashad (offerings to the deity) preparations. But now, it is my responsibility.

Sigh!! So much work, so much cleaning up, so much cooking! Exhausted! And to do all that decked up in nine yards?!? But in the end, it all turned out fine. We had (me-cooked) sumptuous four course meal and long day of rest.

All is well that ends well right. Hurrah Me..!
