Well,last weekend was Diwali shopping.I told my parents not to get me a silk saree.I do not use it regularly and nor do I know how to tie one!!.They just did not listen to me and this is what they got me a pure kanchipuram silk saree.It has a blue green tinge with paisleys all over.So thanx to my mom and dad for this lovely gift.This happened on a Saturday.
On Friday since it happened to be a full moon I set off to go and see a temple with my folks.I visited this ancient temple called Pancheshti,(I have already made a post of this temple here).The lingam here was completed covered with white cooked rice.This decoration is known as Anna(rice) Abhishegam.It was a sight to see.Do check out some of the picture of the temple here.

I also made some friends in the temple.These girls were so curious about my digital camera.It was so refreshing to talk to them.Their innocence and spontaneity was a delight to watch.
The rice used to adorn the deity was made into sambar sadam.Check out the pic.
