This post has been in the draft for a more than a week now. I thought I will post it before Navaratri ends!

There are quite a lot of things to look forward to during Navaratri, a festival lasting the maximum number of days compared to all others – Kolu, Sundal, Kolu bommais for sale at Mylapore/T.Nagar/Khadi (I might have missed some places) in various sizes and shapes, visiting friends and relatives, they in turn visiting your house 🙂 , special alankaraam at most of the temples for ambAL, doing poojas for books (padikkaramo illaiyo bookskku poojai mattum correctaa poattuduvom 😉 ), vehicles, etc. on Saraswati Pooja and above all, singing almost everyday! It’s that time of the year when your singing skills are put to test what with everyone asking you to sing as soon as they know that you are learning music. At the same time, no one is spared from letting their singing talent from being exposed 😉 While there are some people who, I don’t know why they want to sing in the first place and subject everyone to torture with their singing, jump at the opportunity to sing as soon as they are asked to, there are others who really sing well and who leave you wishing to listen to their singing more. I don’t belong to either of the categories 😉 While I am at the topic of singing during Navaratri, I thought I would give a warning to all girls who sing. Girls, beware of guys like this one 😛 Cha kaalam romba kettu poidtthu 😛

    Nice Navarathri post. This Pooja thing for books and shops and so on sometimes puts people in a quandry. Today, I was in such a situation. You see, I have to go to Guru’s house tomorrow (Ayudha Puja) and as I keep the violin in the Puja today morning, I notice that the A String is gone. Situation is real bad. I frantically phone to several shops hoping atleast one would be open. I had run out of my A String reserves! Thankfully, one shop person said he was open half a day. Just difficult to imagine what would have happened if I didn’t find a string! I even went to the point of trying to fix the D string instead of A and tried tuning it properly, but to no avail.
    As for singing, well, guess you would have sung too 🙂 And read Prabhukrish’s post. Seri, next time, all girls can start singing in Simhanandana Talam instead of Adi Talam 🙂
    PS : Sorry for such a long comment!
