Simple South Indian Festive Thali, that I prepared during this Sravana Pournami. Which is the 15th day of the month of SHRAAVAN as per Hindu Calendar.Mostly falls during the month of August as per English calendar.

Importance of ‘Shravana Pournami’:

Though the entire month is considered auspicious, but this particular day is the best of all, because of more than one occasions falling on.

  • First and foremost is, the boys of the Hindu Brahmin Community start  seeking their vedic studies from a Guru, at his Gurukul.
  • Men and Boys who have already got their upanayanam (traditional sacred thread ceremony) done, do replace the thread with a new one.
  • Raksha bandhan,  the most happening festival, in North India, also falls on this day. Now-a-days this festive spirit spread to the South as well. On this day, sisters tie a sacred thread to the wrist, to each & every brother of their family. Which signifies a promise made, to love, care and support each other.
  • And personally, it’s our marriage anniversary on this day. And so it makes us feel even more special for a celebration.
