I am due to complete 60 years and my daughter wants to celebrate this in formal fashion with Rudra Ekadasi the previous day followed by the regular finction/ Mangalya Dharanam etc. Family and relatives are being invited. I have an elder brother living. The question is who must send out the formal invitation my brother or daughter or can they both? Invitation will be in Tamil as per accepted sastric language and wordings. My sasthrigal says both choices are okay?
Please revert.
Will appreciate quick response.
Love to all.
