Think we should be infact happier. Though Prabandham Parayanam cannot be
done
but artha pathana *Kalakshepam* is advised and can be done during this
time.
So this is the time to stop singing and start thinking, it's time for some
snorkling.
Not ordinary kind but real deep, may be even diving. How intelligent and
thoughtful were our elders!
