Ganesha Habba Celebrations!

Sunday was Ganesh Chaturthi. This has been one of my favorite festivals since I can remember!This and Sankranthi. :)
This year though the Pooja, food were as usual good, all of us missed my sister.
I guess this will be true for all festivals from now on...
She will be missed and she will be teased mercilessly as well!! :D :D
Here are a few pics from yesterday's celebrations.
Please do not copy, save these images. They are personal property. Do not duplicate the images.
Goddess Gowri and Lord Ganesha -








Our Pooja room at home in Mysore -










Lunch! :) -










Also, I know I haven't responded to a LOT of comments for my previous 2 posts, I will do that by tomorrow. I haven't gotten around because of work load and its becoming increasing difficult to log in with managers walking by and discussing lots of irrelevant things!
Please don't mind my dears and please do keep commenting because I have read each comment, but replying suddenly becomes difficult! :)
Also, took one major decision at work today. Not sure how right or wrong I am about it. But, am happy with it. Not too sure what the consequences are going to be either.
Oh well.

I couldnt reply to ur comment on my post as I have removed that post and couldnt find ur email on ur page:)

Pixie said...

Renu, why did you remove the post?
It was quite thought provoking and of course such topics always bring up debates :)

Hopefully I will be able to email you either today or latest by tomorrow, because I am working late (again!) today.
