Lights on

Lighten the earthen-lamps on Karthigai Theepam that glows in brighten orange, around the windows, gateway to the worshiping brass lamps fired in new wicks into the oiled lamps. Its familiar follow-up to lighter as soon the huge lamp of Thiruvannamalai were set to fire above the hill of Arunachaleswarar Temple. Thanks to the television channel, for live telecast of the lamp festival of Thiruvannamalai, where it easily to know when the lamp lit to fire.

Weekend was good for me, to spend sometimes with my dear cousin sister. She arrived at evening and stayed till night and my aunt and cousin was to join the evening it was happy movement. When the time I was wishing to share, she was not, but I could now share the pictures that took at some movements and festival shots as well she brought me some snaps of her diwali and here recent visit to some places in south.

Usual beach visit was to happen on Sunday, this time after sunsets fully and an exciting sight of Full Moon was their. Visible slowly in deep pink and by time to time changes its color of a rising sun at early morning and comes above in yellow signal. First time in this season of winter, very cold wind was felt and a small disappoint for leaving the camera at home to capture the wonderful evening in pictures. Below is few pics from Theepam.
