Sundariye Chempaka Malare
Vishu reminds me of three things - kaNi konna, vishukkaTTa and my Mother's birthday. :-) During the months of March and April, you would see the golden flowers of kaNi konna everywhere in Kerala and just the sight of the bloomed konna is a treat to eyes. Vishukkatta is the traditional Vishu special delicacy of Kerala homes. I remember that there was Mohan chettan and his younger brother Unni chettan who were friends of my elder brothers. They used to bring Vishukkatta on Vishu days in my early childhood and it was so yummy! I don't know how many homes still prepare Vishukkatta these days. And today is my Mother's birthday. She has just turned 73.
Here is wishing all Malayalee readers/listeners of this blog a wonderful Vishu day (with lots of Kaineettam :-) ) and all prosperity throughout the year.
And here is a song which I have sung with Rashmi Nair.
