My memory is still fresh with the tantalizing fragrance of ‘Dikashan coffee’, the melodious chime of the puja bell. The patter of my cousin’s feet trying to run away from our grandma, to escape the customary, ‘Friday Oil bath’. I remember us standing in the brightly lit puja room praying before gorging on spicy ‘Vadai’s’.
Yes, Friday’s have always been special for me.
I wish my children could experience the essence of Friday that I have come to cherish and nurture. Before beginning this day, I have made a promise to myself to inculcate the tradition of Friday’s in my family and help my children understand our rich tradition and heritage.
