Day 049 – Lakshmi Pooja

_Captain’s Log, StarDate 2007.08.24-17.31_

I changed my daily routine today to squeeze in some exercise time in the morning before leaving for work. Makes more sense.

I found out in office today that Varmahalakshmi Pooja is celebrated in south India today. Being the only one (or perhaps one of the few) carrying a photo of Laksmi Maa (that was for Diwali, BTW), I invited everyone over in the evening to my room for Pooja. Some folks prepared and brought sweets, while some others showed up with dripping hair straight out of the bath. In all, about 15-17 showed up. No one knew what to sing for the Aarati, so each person sang whatever little they knew. All in all, it went off rather well.
