Light Up

It's Karthigei and oils lamps are everywhere. The beauty of the lighted vilakku makes you feel very relaxed and harmony. It enhances more beauty and a magic glow to your house. Don't you agree?

In fact, every year, I will light up 54 oil lamps but this year I manage only 36. I always had a desire of lighting up 108 lamps. I'm crazy, i know. Maybe it can happen next year. hehehe........... Just lighting up is not enough, as you have to keep it lighted for at least 2 hours. You have to top up with more oil. 'Gracious oil lamps'. Today is the last day. Enjoy viewing some of the pictures I took once I lighted the vilakkus at home. May Lord Murugan bless us all.

Wishing everyone a Happy Karthigei

Oh that's nice.

Did you take part in the rally? I must say, Indians have waken up. I feel proud of them and hope that we get our rights in this country.

@ Mirror you mind

As far as i know, u can light up either 9, 18, 27, 36, 54, or 108. I'm not sure on the detailed explanation. Anyway, tks for dropping by my blog and wish you a happy karthigei.
