The Chevvai Pillayar Pooja

Circa 1975. It was the month of July, and my Pankajam paati (maternal grandmother) was staying with us. We were excited as my beloved Chithi was due to arrive that afternoon. Little did I know then that a secret midnight feast awaited us! Paati gently woke us (we 3 sisters) up in the dead of night and beckoned us to quietly slip into the sacred Pooja room. She whispered that my sleeping dad should never know about this…We nodded and tiptoed downstairs, totally wide eyed now with excitement.
