Karthika Vilakku

Karthika vilakku is a special occasion for keralites. Like Deepavali its also the day of lights. 'Thamasorma Jyothirgamaya' lead me to light. This may be the logo of Karthika vilakku too. According to the place the legend behind the occasion changes. In my place we lit lights to welcome Srimuruka our temple's diety after his victory over tharakasura. In some places the legend is connected with goddess of that place. Anyway its a celebration over the victory of god against evil forces. I like this type of festivals. Children also like it. They will also be a part of it by arranging the 'Chirathu'. Another main attractionl of this festival is 'Karthika puzhukku'. In Chottanikkar temple karthika vilakku is a gand celebration.

Craft for children

Yesterday I had made an Origami cat for Hari. Then we tried to make paper flowers. Really I am trying to reduce the time of TV Viewing. We have to give them other activities to spend that time. I am very poor in craft making, but now i am browsing to study one material for each day. Today's craft is a dove....

This one is very difficult but its so cute...
