Tomorrow is very extremely important for me and Gaju. Gaju will be going to the embassy consulate for an interview for visa on my father’s birthday on Tuesday 22nd of October tomorrow. I have to wake Gaju up at 5am in 30 minutes. He’s afraid that the alarm won’t go off or it won’t wake him up, he asked me to wake him up when we were spending time together earlier today.
I have been praying to Lord Ganesh and the universe. Please, pray for Gaju to get visa. Please, pray everything will go well for him, so he gets visa. Thank you so much. We truly appreciate it. Many many blessings to you all.
Ahoi Ashtami is a Hindu festival celebrated about 8 days before Diwali on Krishna Paksha Ashtami. ... The fasting and puja on Ahoi Ashtami are dedicated to Mata Ahoi or Goddess Ahoi. She is worshiped by mothers for the well-being and long life of their children.
Just how women fast for the well being for their husbands on Karwa Chauth, mothers on Ahoi Ashtami fast from dawn to dusk for the well-being of their sons, although these days it is done for all children. The fast is broken after sighting stars at midnight. This year, it falls on October 21.
Much like Karwa Chauth, Ahoi Ashtami is more widely celebrated in North India. The day is also known as Ahoi Aathe since fasting for Ahoi Ashtami is done during Ashtami Tithi which is the eighth day of the month. It is generally observed approximately eight days before Diwali and four days after Karwa Chauth.
Panna Meena Ka Kund - indian stepwell in Amer is something out of an Escher drawing. ⠀
Created as a way of collecting the monsoon rains and preserving water for the drier months it was designed in such a way that people could reach water at any level as the pool rose and fell.⠀⠀
Not only does the step well serve as a source of water, it was also a place for community gatherings where women would meet up to chat, relax or swim in the cool waters.⠀⠀
According to the local residents, it is impossible for a person to use the same stairs to go down and get back up. ⠀
