Retro :- Gomathi's Valaikapu

I attended this function way back last year's June. You can check out their wedding post here. I was arranging my photo collections in my pc, I found the photos.The function is called Valaikappu.No one should practice any rituals blindly, they must know the actual reason why they are doing it. So why Hindus celebrating it? Well you can refer here .

All auspicious functions commence with the lighting of the lamp, which is often maintained right through the occasion. Light symbolizes knowledge or some people call it God .
The oil or ghee in the lamp symbolize human's ego .When lit by spiritual knowledge,
the ego too finally perishes like the oil . :)

Gomathi and her husband

Look at Kishan and his sister, they were looking at the rice only hehehhe

Getting blessing from her grandma.

Latha akka feeding her

Gomathi did some rituals ( guided by my mom ) which requires her to bend down and do something inside the milkpot. Clearly it's a good exercise for a pregnant lady .

Blessings from 3 aunties
