This is a picture of jackfruit tree in our garden at Chennai which yielded tasty fruits for the first time after planting it a decade back. The fruit takes 4 months to ripen fully and once ripe automatically comes off the branch.
This is a picture of our village near Vellore which is 10 km off the main road.The small amman temple at the background of our paddy fields looks very scenic.Recently I had been there and was then pictured.The quiteness of the village and the natural green colour around you makes you feel so refreshing
This rangoli called Chaitanya is drawn based on the Principle of Goddess Saraswathi.So doing this rangoli on the days dedicated to Goddess Saraswathi will attract and transmit the Deity's Princilple to greater extent. This rangoli is taken from a book called "Sattvik Rangoli"
