Dear T B S Sir,

We have been discussing about madisAr in two threads and it has reached a saturation point!

Now back to some other ideas!

Summer has started and ants will start hunting for food to store for the rainy days. Sometimes kitchen slabs will be infested

by them. To keep them at bay, mix a teaspoon of any cleaning gel with lemon smell (I use Vim gel) with some water and wipe

all
over the slabs and the gas stove. Ants hate lemon smell and will :bolt:!!

Can someone kindly explain to me what is a Kurai Pudavai?
The special saree which is worn at the time of tying the knot!

Girls wear it in the particular style specified for their community, for the first time, on the wedding day. :).

Let us talk of lighter things.

Handloom sarees.

Jaya jaitly a social activist lives in a world of handloom sarees.

She along with craft activist Laila Tyabji and Thumri singers Vidya rao are connoisseurs of hand woven fabrics.

Jaya has a collection of 230 sarees. 30 are " Dressy" meant for weddings and receptions . The others "Non dressy" are meant for day to day.

Some are a bit old but she has kept them as their patterns and designs are unique which one no longer sees today according to her.

Even the blinds in her drawing room are ,well, these sarees..

I am sure many would like to peek into her sari closet which are stacked neatly with her sarees.

Dear Renu,

I wrote the occasion when it is worn first because Tambrahm girls get six silk sarees for the two day wedding.

1. Vratham (First day morning)

2. NichayathArtham (First day evening)

3. Oonjal (Wedding day morning - This is bought by maternal uncle(s) )

4. Koorai pudavai (during mAngalyadhAraNam and following rituals - bought by the Groom's parents)

5. GruhapravEsam (now a days, when Bride goes to the Groom's room in the mandapam)


6. Nuptials saree!! ;)

During my sons wedding at delhi, my better half gave silk sarees to all women of both her and my extended family for taking the trouble and travelling large distances to

attend the wedding

Rule -Not so well off should get the most expensive sarees.Secondly , the more senior in age should get light weight silk sarees that they could wear comfortably.

We prefer to look after all seniors , most occupying the front chairs in mandapams which have senior citizen friendly facilities for driving in and out.

Senior citizens are the only one who enjoy weddings these days other than the two getting married.
