A Paisley Vijayadashmi!

Dusshera is a festival celebrated over 9 days by Hindus all over India. At the end of the 9th day, is Vijayadashmi - "Vijay" means victory and "dashmi" means tenth day, it signifies the victory of good over evil. It is believed that on this day, Lord Rama killed the demon Ravana and rescued his abducted wife Sita.

In South India, this day is considered auspicious to start education or any form of art like music, painting, etc. It is considered that anything that is started on Vijayadashmi will progress well. With that good intention, I painted this vase with paisley motifs, hoping that I will continue to develop this hobby and life will be filled with happiness and beauty just like the paisley design! :)

Thank you... :) Wishing you and your family lots of happiness and prosperity. No sundal for two reasons

1. I am not a veteran-golu keeper! So no sundal, but I did make payasam and vadai.

2. I am working, so with everything else that needs to be done at home, I think I can do away with sundal, considering point 1! :D
