We both had a great “Thalai” Deepavali. Celebrated with fun and sparklers !!
The Chennai rains did not dampen our spirits.... The night before, we all had a get-together dinner at Aarthi's home terrace. Later, we had an interesting Pictionary game (trying to depict words like pegasus in a drawing!!), which went on till midnight. It did not end there.... We saw two movies - Sound of the Thuder and Manichitrathazh (Malayalam source of 'Chandramukhi'). Simultaneously, we were playing cards (Rammi !?!) !!
After the Ganga Snanam, we set the road rocking with a 5000-wala (@ 5:30 AM !!). With lots of sweets, lights and relatives around.... it was a memorable day.
We both had gone to my hometown during the next weekend - phase 2 of our Deepavali celebrations. We had gone to Vijay starrer "Sivakaasi" - the great masala mix of the season. My parents are planning to visit us in Chennai during mid Dec.
Seeing quite a lot of movies - ranging from Sci-Fi / Action genre (The Myth, The Island, The Cave, Harry Porter 4, i-Robot etc.) to cartoons - courtesy R'thi (Mulan, Prince of Egypt, Ice Age etc.).
We have recently setup a cute aquarium, which I am passionate about. Have got a lot of Cichlids varieties - including Severum, Blue/Rose/White Morphs, Rainbow/White/Tiger Sharks, Avaratus etc. !! Will try and post more articles on this soon.
