Just yesterday, we performed the sacred thread ceremony (munj/upanayam) for my 11 year old son. It was chaotic, hectic, exciting & an emotional time for everybody during this sacred rite of passage.

I have had a house full of guests for over a week that came from around the world for this special & unique occasion. My son was a real trooper throughout - waking up at 5am yesterday & performing various ceremonies & rituals until 3pm!

It was a long, tiring & exhausting day for everybody but so worth the family fun & memories :-)
