The Hindi name for Tuesday is Mangalwar – Mangal means auspicious, it also denotes Mangal Griha or Planet Mars. In Tamil Tuesday is செவ்வாய்க்கிழமை (Chevvai Kizhamai), again denoting Planet Mars. So much for the North-South divide 🙄. Tuesdays are also the days devoted to Hanuman.
Today as per the colour of the day, one is supposed to wear red, but for me the colour that denotes all things auspicious is yellow. So I chose to highlight yellow today.
Tuesdays are also considered Hanuman’s day in North India. Am not so sure about South India. Here is my favourite Hanuman at Peelamedu, Coimbatore. His “alankaram” is done by my elder brother Narayana Bhattar. This picture is from a few weeks back, but in keeping with the colour of the day – Yellow.
Fruit of the day ? Well should be easy enough. Mangoes !
Vegetable of the day ? I chose to make Mac ‘n’ cheese for breakfast and added Yellow Capsicum, keeping the colour theme in mind. You will have to search for the Macaroni because its more veggies than pasta.
Have a Mangalmay (good) day !
