Anant Chaturdashi popularly known as Anant Chaudas. The sacred day is dedicated to Lord Vishnu who is called as the Lord of several avatars and the preserver of the universe.
19th September 2021 Lord Ganesha bids adieu to Earth, and Lord Ganesha devotees perform visarjan puja with a promise that Ganpati Bappa will return next year.
Anant Chaturdashi is the most significant day to worship Lord Vishnu in Anant form.Ananta in Sanskrit means eternal or endless.
On this day, devotees observe a day-long fast and tie a sacred thread 'Anant Sutra' to seek blessings for a prosperous and peaceful life.
This day and puja was most dear to my grandmother nani "Nirmala" like her name which means Immaculate, Clean virtuous,Pure she performed this puja with full faith.I still remember she kept fast and made kupdi's which looked and tasted so yum.She never missed even a single fast or puja for this day.What may come. She surprised everyone with her grace and education.Born in 1925 she was well educated and spoke english with class, which was not common among other females as women were not allowed to get education at that time.Elegant lady with virtue.She will always be alive in my memories and life.
