Poolapalli Get Together

Today is the last weekend for the Hindu-Telugu month of Karthika. This month, people in parts of the state follow the norm of having a community lunch in a garden or forest, popularly known as Vanabhojanamulu.

Our folks from the village of Poolapalli scheduled a outing today in one of the gardens in Miyapur. We reached there by about 9.00am for a heavy breakfast: Idly, Vada, Bajji, Puri and Nookalannam. Then kids started playing cricket and other games. Ladies started having their own competitions and Bingo games. Some of the men played card games. Lunch is catered a little after noon and is very tasty. Surya is dehydrated a bit and started throwing up, but recovered in a couple of hours.

We took a photo of the group (actually, most of the attendees: some of them left early). We also had a small prize distribution ceremony, followed by fruits and tea. Post tea hour, we headed back home.

Here are pictures from the day:
