This is how we celebrate gokulashtami every year! First pooja hall was made ready for pooja! then sweets and snacks were made. This year my mom made athrisam,Badam cake,spikes murukku, ribbon/malabar pakkoda,thean kollal! Yummy! Then with rice powder and water mix
the floors are made of various designs and importantly Krishna's Foot prints! Pooja was then made.. thus we celebrated this occasion! Hope u enjoyed the pictures!

Hi, the photos that you posted in blog reminds me the good old days that i shared with a brahmin family nearby my house in tanjore. I got all these stuffs to eat during their festive season. Wow the dishes looks so fresh and hot. I miss them and their dishes now.. Your photos gave me a nostalgic feeling.

Keep blogging good stuffs like this..All the best wishes.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.
