Wonder if you’ve had a situation akin to mine?
My name (allegedly male in origin); has often met the fate of a raised eyebrow. While outcome of every direct chat was a pleasant experience the confusion laced interaction still prevails!
In my constant effort to beat initial barriers related to my name, I devote this blog to the unique meaning 'Suhael- Venus, planet of love' which is very feminine & belongs to 'MY' gender, as praise to many of us in a similar situation.

Ganpati bappa moriya...
This was Adi's first year of Ganpati celebration at home. It is a yearly festivity at my in-laws and finally we have got the strength to carry forward the tradition at our home from this year.
Buying the idol was amazing fun. We had a whole load of elphant god's we could choose from but being a toddler home we settled down for a very unconventional look- we brought home 'Bal Ganesha' (toddler elephant god). Our Ganesha was riding a scooty with his lil friend; the mouse, pearched at his feet looking a wee-bit scared at the thought of a joy ride with the Lord...un-charted territories I guess!!! :)
Satya did the Puja as per vidhi's. I made the prasadam at home.
Puliodhare, payasam and modaks (courtesy a friend) both rice n wheat. Post the puja we had friends who joined in for lunch which was served on banana leaves...We tried to make it as authentic as possible!
We had guests all trough the 1.5 days of celebrations.
Thank-you all for all the encouragement as well as being so enthusiastic! It has build up our apetite for a more funfilled occasion for next year...
