Delightful Karadaiyan Nombu

Must take the opportunity to re-state the rationale of the ‘Nombu’ ritual, as understood by me.
‘Brahman’ (Absolute Reality) for no known reason desired to create the ‘phenomenal Universe’, it meditated, the outcome was ‘heat energy’, which in turn created ‘water’, in turn, it created ‘food’. (Chand. Upa. 6 – 2 – 1 to 3 and Taitt. Upa 2 – 6 – 4).   Prof. Einstein established the same process in his famous E = mc2.
The Sun is the repository of all the energy of the Universe, the driving force behind it.   Its influence on Earth is oscillating across the year taken to go around it and the trajectory.   This, in turn, creates the seasons.   The Sun is God, made visible across the Universe ( NAMAH SAVITHRE JAGADEKA CHAKSHUSHE) and, women being the ones charged by Nature to bring out life offer homage to Sun at the precise time He transits to the Pisces (Meena) constellation.   The summer starts with this followed by the fury of its heat.
Above is a response to a comment by Mohan Murti…
As I write this, most round pot (or, beer) bellied Tamil Iyer Mama`s around the globe would either be chewing `after tiffin` vetrilai pakku or,  preparing to gobble up  a sumptuous fill of the delicious Karadayan Nonbu with white butter.

The already dieting Tamil Iyer Mamis` must have been following the strict vratham and prayers for the well-being and longevity of the Mamas. I have no problem with this. In fact, I too am awaiting the delicious, gourmet treat, after the Sun downs…
I do not want to sound patronising but, as as a mark of respect, sign of acknowledgement and the deep urge of “unmitigated communion” to say “thank you”, I put a small patch of sacred manjal on my `poonal` and uttered the simple words “thank you”!
Here`s my question – In the modern day Tamil Iyer Mamis`, are equally or more qualified academically, compared to the Mamas. They are also, breadwinners. Perhaps, the Tamil Iyer Mama too, must dedicate a day of `Vratham` and prayers for the longevity of the Mami ?
Enjoy Karadaiyan Nombu!
