Ahoi Ashtami Festival


Certain images simply grab heart
Taking us back to childhood and
The joys of juicing life to the last drop

This particular festival was earmarked for moms
With kids as they fasted whole day for growth
Health and longevity of their offspring. Fast was broken when stars were visible in the sky and then after the folklore attached to this day was heard
Via family priestess or family elder and then all
The kids were given sweets and money- there was a lot of fun and fanfare attached to festival esp. For us kids – my eyes tear up remembering mom esp. And how she doted on us all

Ps: we helped in making this etching on the wall inking in names of family clan along with our names See More
