I wanted to carry out some rituals post mother passing away here at Bangalore, (Which are monthly, quaterly etc) at Karaikudi. However, due to covid and other situation, I could never make it to the place, (Gayathri Niwas) where parents spent good 55 years.
With Covid out of everyone's radar (Thanks mainly to Vladimir Putin), we decided to work a trip to be present on Friday, 1st April 2022, (The first anniversary). We worked a plan to carry out reciting Vedic Hymn as well as carrying out few homams for Peace and propserity to all the dear/near and the Humankind in these tough/ unpredictable situation. Our family priest Kannan Vaddhiyar arranged everything as requested and there were 5 additional vedic scholars who recited the hymn for good 4 hours besides carrying out about 6 Homams. The event lasted about 4 hours in total.
We organised breakfast and lunch which gave us an opportunity to meet people who had interacted with parents over the past 45 years or so.
We also took this visit to clean up the house to dispose items which we organised to give away to Old age home and to people who had helped/supported parents over the past 25 years. Infact these people had kept the house Spick and span despite house being locked for the past 14 months.
After visiting our native deity @KARISULNTHAMANGLAM temples, on 2nd April,(Near Tirunelveli on River Thamirabhrani banks) we reached Bangalore Sunday late evening.
