Concluded Sankranti 2015 with a simple family reunion at Suresh (Bro Number 4) and Sharada’s house. Enjoyed good food, great company, lots of laughs streaming decade old pictures from my Mac, camaraderie between brothers and cousins. Lunch menu included Kalagoora (cooked mostly during Sankranti, and a delicacy which is not easy to be made), Tomato Pappu, Garelu, Kheer, Vadappa, Potlakaya Chutney, Sambar, Alu Bonda, Vadappa, Garelu, Kheer and more. We insisted that Sharada whip fewer items this year, so that we are less confused on what to choose on our plates and focus is only on indulging as much as possible 🙂

There were no kites in our agenda this year too, as life got busier than ever to engage in multiple events. Coincidentally I didn’t see many kites either, on the skies of Hydrabad as I drove in the city.  Last year, I had spent half a day at Necklace road and clicked several dozens of pictures as part of my Sankranti Street Photography. Few years earlier, I had spent time at Jupudi’s mansion which was once in a life time event, celebrating Pongal in Andhra.  Few pictures and video is archived in the blog.

Here is the 2-minute video that documents festivities in larger than life style:

Here are key moments captured on Canon 6D (my latest full frame toy), which makes us extra hip than we are.
