With new year comes new hopes, new dreams and new festivals. I have a lot planned head for 2014 and I can wait for it to happen. However, I will keep you updated regularly. (That is one of my new year resolutions- to blog here more often)
Anyway talking about festivals, Sankrant is almost here. Everyone is talking about Haldi Kumkum and Bornahans. For those who have no clue about what I am saying, Haldi Kumkum is a fun get together organized by married ladies mostly belonging to western Indian states. The ladies come together and apply turmeric (haldi) and vermillion(kumkum) to each other’s forehead and the host gives gifts along with other necessary items such as betel leaves and nuts. Every marathi household eats tilgul ladoos or gulpolis around the time.
I will talk about Bornahan some other time. Probably after I conduct one for my little one.
How all of this is related to Koyri? I am getting custom orders for earrings from friends who are going to conduct Haldi Kumkum ceremony in their house. I just put up a post on the Koyri facebook page letting others know about it too.
