We Can Officially Write Now

We did the ceremony this Vijay Dashmi
The major items needed for the ritual-
1. The Kalash contained water having generous sprinkling of cardamom and kesar
2. The rice mixed with haldi-kumkum and spread out on a banana leaf
3. A bowl of honey to render a sweet voice
4. Books, crayons, slate, chalk- their writing instruments

Sweet Beginnings- with honey and sugar candy

Writing the alphabet on the Rice
And then on the SlateThe Finished WorkAnd now for some reading
Recieving the "Degree"- Note the expression- the smile lit up at the sight of the crayons
Presenting the degree to the proud parents
Together we shall achieve
