ஆட்டோ நெரிசலில் சிக்காத
ஆதிகாலத்து
மாணவர்கள் இவர்கள்!

கழுத்தில்
தூக்குக் கயிறு தொங்காத
சுதந்திரப் பறவைகள்!

தார் கொட்டாத தரையிலே
‘நட’ராஜா பஸ்தான்
தினந்தோறும்!

சிக்னல் சிக்கலில்லை
தட்டானைத் தவிர
குறுக்கே ஏதும் வந்ததில்லை!

சட்டையை
‘இன்’ பண்ணத் தேவையில்லை
டவுசர் கிழியாதவரை!

மாட்டுக்குத்தான் லாடம்,
பசுமை பூத்த பூமியில்
செருப்பு கூட பாரம்!

புத்தகப்பையிலே
ஜவுளிக்கடை விளம்பரம்
போன பொங்கலை நினைவுபடுத்தியபடி!

Little Lending Library – Madipakkam

My friend Charanya’s strongly recommended Little Lending Library, Madipakkam.  I joined the “Little Lending Library, Madipakkama couple of days back.  It has a huge collection of Tamil and English novels.  Joining deposit is Rs 250 + 5. In back side of each book they mentioned the rent for holding the book for a week. After a week if you keep that book with you, you have to pay a fine of 1/5th of the rent mentioned per day.  Right now I am reading two books “Kannadik kopurangal – Balakumaran” & “A journey to the center of the earth – Jules verne (retold by: S.W. Khatai)

32nd Chennai book fair 2010

I and my son Alan Jeffsan went to Chennai book fair 2010. We started our journey from Puzhuthivakkam house to St. Thomas Mount Railway station by hero Honda splendor bike, from there to nungampakkam Railway station by electric train and then from there to St.George Anglo Indian School,(opp to Pachayappan college) by auto for Rs. 30.00 only. While coming back we gave Rs 40.00, Latter I realized the auto driver cheated us (After we reached nungampakkam Railway station). He stopped the vehicle some where, and from there we walked a bit to reach the station.

Entrance fee for me Rs 5.00, for my son its free.

But I really enjoyed the verities of book that were showcased. Alan bought a coupe of books like

  1. Art tutorial books (Volume I to V)
  2. Ben 10 coloring book
  3. Ben 10 Scratch Magic (The book was with blank  papers, you have to scratch the pencil in the paper to get the hidden image – any one of the famous ben10 characters )
  4. Mathematics for school kids
  5. Basic Interactive learning DVD (Maths for kids)
  6. Chemistry table – Periodic Table of Elements and Chemistry
  7. Chess book
  8. Moral story books

People were selling mineral water filled tumblers, bottles and some beverage (we never heard about the brand ). There were so many books for sales from different authors, publishers, states ….. books were displayed for sales to cover all age groups. Different shaped book for activities was the best one, which attracted so many kids.

The booksellers and publishers association of South India have arranged this event. Thanks to all those who worked hard to achieve this book fair  a mega success .. 🙂

Tell Me Why …

tell me why

tell me why

I subscribed for the book called “Tell Me Why” from M.M. Publications Ltd, Kottayam – 686001, Kerala, India. This magazine cover an interesting top on every issue. For example one complete book covers only insects related things …. Best inventions, Birds, Transportation, Mountains, ….. It very interesting for all the age group. My son is doing his first standard. Still he love to read the headings, questions … most importantly loves to watch the illustarations and asks us n number of questions … If your kid is doing their 4th standard above … definitely you could give a try … Happy learning … 🙂
