SALEKERI TEMPLE

Salekeri Durga Parameshwari Temple, where my father was  temple priest, performing pooja for many, many years...... almost 50 years ago....... all festive occasions I used to be there with my father as an assistant.....
Today visited the place with my brother, as there was special function  CHANDIKA YAAGA......... most satisfying part was earlier generation people recognizing you, showing respect and affection...... with expressions like........ ÿaavaga bandidri ayya....??...... somejre, hengidri....??..... iga ellidri....??etc etc.....
There was special lunch due to Chandika Yaaga by a sponsor...... about 30 brahmins and about 2000 others for lunch...... separate lunch arrangements......
Back home for a good siesta.....evening watching live telecast of  KANNADA SAHITYA SAMMELANA from Bangalore......
