varsha pirappu ’08

Wishing my kazillion (I know that’s a stretch, but I sorta liked the term and hence using it freely!) tamil readers a wonderful new beginning.

Gorgeous orange sunrise and colors of the waters at Marina Beach, loved the frame and felt it suited the occasion in more ways than one.

Ellorukkum Iniya Tamil Puthandu Vazthukkal

Enna Panneenga? Veetley enna samayal? Enna padam release inda new yearukku? Thalaivar paattu onnu paakkalama?

(Translating: Wishing all a wonderful new Tamil new year. What did you do? What’s the menu at home? What are the new movie release for this day? Should we watch the Hero’s song? )

Such a catchy fun number and good sentiments to boot, too! so enjoy :–)



Not to forget our Kerala neighbors – Happy Vishu.

Onam Wishes

Sadya kazhicho?

(Translates to – did you gorge well on the huge lunch served this day?) :–)

    Iniya Puthandu Nal Vazhthukkal! No festive lunch, no special programs on Sun TV – without all this doesn’t feel like new year ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. says: rads

    A-Kay: Really? That’s no fun! @Sun TV I mean.

    Laksh: Yes yes, ungalukkum.

    Metlin: LOL, o cmon, u get such awesome ildi/dosa frozen ones. :–D

    Lakhsmi: Of course it does. Good thoughts matter :–)
    Jackfruit payasam eh? hmm… you got me all curious now..

  11. says: Lakshmi


    This is a specialty in Kerala. Usually, once the jackfruit is ripe a jam is made out of jackfruit and jaggery and god knows what else. Taste abso yummy though for jackfruit lovers(since it has that distinct smell of the fruit).

    This jam is used throughout the year to come up with different delicacies of which the payasam is one. It is out of the world I tell ya !
