Wow!

are u in bangalore? Ithought u were in delhi.. I used to be in bangalore till last year, b4the company deported me to here ;)

Dont worry about the spellings.. every one has first times hickups with new stuff. you dont have to have strong malayalam base anyway. see Ranjith making an earnest attempt on malayalam writing.

Dont worry, u can do it.. :-)

Thanks for dropping by,
Sasneham :-)

thanks shaniya for mentioning. Suji got the right answer to the song quiz on the blog so congratulations Suji. Yeah and like Shaniyan said without knowing any malayalam or living in Kerala or India for that matter I'm making a big fool out of myself on the malayalanet and the malayali bloggers community have been extremely supportive. Even though they all write things that I can only understand 70% of (and in some cases 10% - just their nicknames :)) they've helped a lot by commenting and correcting even though I don't comment that much.

Onaashamsakall by the way.

Dear God ! you have such a sweet blog here !!
I mean your blog Suji, not God's blog.
I was dying to take pictures of Onam flower arrangements but couldn't find the right atmosphere.
Found one in Alleppy Rly station but not half as good as yours
Such lovely flower arrangements here! So delightful. So badly wanted this to send Onam greetings to my friends.

Very nice and colorful design.

Pretty good pookkalam! Onam and other such festive occasions bring you the real feeling of something missing and the longing for being at home, right? When you are away, that is. At home, it is as usual!

 
At 9:41 AM, Blogger Lambuchops said...

God job with the pookalam Suji.. Although I must contradict ur opinion tht the pookalam beats the onasadhya in any way!! mmmm.. the ada pradhaman ends the drought in my mouth.. Wish my Onam was half as good as urs this year.

thanks for visiting suji... i lived in delhi for a while, in saket, went to mother's school, opposite IIT gate. i haven't been in some years, heard that it's changed a lot (delhi i mean, haven't heard anything about the school).

How very beautiful. Doesn't this whole blogging thing give us a great insight into other cultures!? Fantastic, thanks.

 
At 7:43 PM, Blogger Mosilager said...

Awesome! I was there from 1984-86 and then again from 1989-90. When did you teach there? I was in class VI when I left in 1990, as far as I can remember :) Is Mrs. Bhatnagar still there? She used to teach IIIrd standard when I was there. I would probably remember the teachers if I saw them but I can't remember any other names from then.

Wow! ur pookalam of 2006 sure was a mind blowing piece of work!!! It was sooo colorful and tempting.Actually seeing ur pookalam I have decided to go for one in my backyard.What have you planned for this year?
You know when I was searching for a good design I came upon a online pookalam competition . U should really try it out and it is a damn good site where u can put online pookalam plus get awarded to be the best pookalam !!!Well the site is pookkalam's online.Its called gameZindia.com.

 
At 6:32 AM, Blogger Suji said...

Thanx Anon. Happy Onam to you. I don't plan my designs before hand, I just make them spontaneously depending of the variety of flowers available. I came to know abt this site for online pookalam competition a couple of days ago, and have already sent in two entries. :)
