Lena's Coming of Age Ceremony
15th of August 2010

The 15th of August was not exactly the moment when Lenatchi came of age, but it was a good choice of date to ensure that all the relevant aunts could be around to get the ceremony up and running.

Are we there yet? The boys were lounging around whilst waiting for the Lenatchi to get ready.

And out she came in her first saree.

Lead down to the ceremony by her maamaa.

The non-halal section of the lounge room was transformed for the ceremony.

Lena made her way in.

Take a seat.

Aunty Hema started off the proceedings.

All the paternal aunties were next and Periamma continued the spinning of things around Lena.
