Festive Pondy Bazaar

Festive Pondy Bazaar

Hello Friends,

India is known for its festivals and celebrations.  What can be more pleasing than a planning for an upcoming festival, inviting friends over, and enjoying an hearty lunch with family. While there are countless number of shops offering packed and readymade sweets and savouries, there is still a great joy in making them at home. It is equally interesting when the sweets we make at home going awry when try them the first time. Children running around, ladies dressed in silks and jumkis, buying tiny gifts for sharing, serving sweets made from new recipes, decorating homes for the occasion and singing and dancing – yes it is an absolute marvelous time indeed.

Here are 6 amazing and colorful pictures that were taken on the eve of Varalakshmi Puja at the Pondy Bazaar market in Chennai.
