Yesterday was Vishu, and because of the end-semester exam that begins tomorrow, I decided not to go home. And that meant it was my first Vishu away from home (Last year, the end-sem ended a couple of days before Vishu). Most of my friends stayed back, so we decided to celebrate Vishu here. We kept the Vishukkani, and got up at 4’o clock in the morning to see the kani. Six of us- Gokul, Arun (AKP), Aditya, Gobind, Febin and myself spent the night in Gokul’s (and Febin’s) room so that it would be easy to wake up and see the kani. Then we went back to sleep, and woke up at 7.30 to go to the temple. Though I couldn’t go home for Vishu, it was great to celebrate it with my friends, that too in the traditional way!
