Aarthi Plate

Sumathi.v's picture

This is done with ice-cream sticks. The 16 words mentioned on the sticks are the 16 qualities which one should posses in life. These wordings are generally used by elders when they bless some one. These plates are generally used to welcome the newly wed with an arthi.

It is strange Sumathi! Just looking at it evokes most of the qualities you've on the plate! Sequins are very beautiful!

Very nice idea and well done!
Fortunately I can understand Tamil. It'll be nice if you could list out
the words in English script and give their meanings too. Then the appreciation
will be enhanced!

Regards! - mOhana
