And that is the end of the Season, at least for me. A friend said rather sadly that now we need to get back to mundane matters like rice, sambhar, electric motor, water in the well, toothpaste, velaikari etc. But I am jolly glad to get back. It is only by immersing myself in the mundane throughout the year that I get to enjoy the Season for two weeks.

To all those who have been following this column – A Happy 2009 with good health and happiness.
