The Mylapore Trio – S. Surendranath, S. Aparna, S. Amarnath and members of Sri Sumukhi Rajasekharan Memorial Foundation recently organised a workshop – ‘pooja vidhanam’ for women to teach them the know-how of festivals like Vinayaka Chaturthi, Krishna Jayanthi and Varalakshmi Vrittam.
The workshop began an explanation on the different poojas followed by a demonstration of how to make kajal (Maiy in Tamil) at home. This was followed by a lecture on how to beautify the dieties. Later songs were sung and at the end of the programme – thamboolam and prasadams like sweet pongal, sundal, kozhukattai and seedai were distributed to the women along with glass bangles.
About 25 men and women, including senior citizens, attended this workshop.
