Annaprasanna is the day the baby is fed rice(solid food) for the first time and is generally done after a puja (worship). Tisha's took her first formal solid food last Saturday (21-June-2008).

Wow that's quite an event. I see Lipika and Tisha have the 'red dot' between the eyes ... is this something they 'wear' during ceremony?

@Aaron Schmidt: Its vermilion, and usually used during almost all Hindu rituals.

Lipika looks very intense for this very important ceremony and Tisha is just so cute. Hope she is enjoying her solids. Beautiful picture Shuva.
