Last night radhu had told me about the preparations rashmi was making for Vishu. Though it was a huge hint, I was not ready for what followed this morning. I was taken by surprise when I was woken up from sleep. Both my eyes held closed by my wife’s palms, I was led downstairs, where Vishu-Kani awaited me. (thanks, radhu.)
I was touched. Happy memories of childhood came rushing. So did the awareness that I was far-away from the family. Within an hour, the whole family was on the other end of the phone. I indeed celebrated vishu with heart full of joy.
The day ended with a Kerala style sadya at Rashmi’s house.
