Ethnicity and Ringing Bells!

Yesterday was the Ethnic Wear competition in my office. The dress code was relaxed for the day. I must admit barring the men none ever followed it as they really couldn't define "Formal" dress for us gals! :p Many made use of this relaxation by turning up in jeans, sandals, short tops...That's another story altogether. But it was really wonderful to see the men clad in Dhotis or Kurta-pyjama and the women in sarees (in different styles) , mallu settu-mundo, kashmiri name it we had it!!!

Of course yours truly went in a pavadai-thavani or the 'Half-saree', the typical Tamil 'young girl' attire and...WON a prize too! That is all i wanted to shout to the world! :-D

Today is project outing day and i am the party organiser (hear! hear!). I made badges for everyone in the team with a picture to highlight their "other" side...that meant having a badge made for me, with waves on it to mean 'my chatter doesn't stop just like the ceaseless waves ' :-D For my Pm, i made a bell to remark on the way he pops up every hour to scream "Time for KT...", "Time we re-worked our strategies...", "Time..."
Little Medusan came up with this wonderful rhyme as accompaniment to my "belling" the Big cat- 'The Haen' (my PM):
Ding Dong Bell
”The Haen” in the well…
Who put him in ?
Little Kumayee thin.
Who will pull him out?
Let him sit there and shout :-D
