Swimming just Rs. 20 per hour in Madurai

Madurai – swimming pool

Sports building in race course road

For the new year holidays we went to Madurai. There my uncle collected the information about the swimming tariff in Madurai sports complex. 10 days training will cost you rs 500.00 only. Alan my son was so excited about this trip due to the swimming classes. Before leaving from Chennai itself he started telling all his friends about his swimming classes.  He was able to attend only for seven days due to some family functions. Now he was not afraid of water at least. Coming summer holidays definitely I will put him in a complete 2 months package.

Animations in my marriage cd …

my marriage photo

my marriage photo

My wife’s brother Andrew and his friends .. contributed their wonderful ideas of rotating my photo and my wife’s photo more than 1000 times in the marriage cd …  My photo might have traveled all over the world starting from India (Taj Mahar, Agra), France, Sri lanka, Australia …. Photos will come from objects like Television, Camera, Mobile Phone, Printer, Computer, Mountain, River, Sea ….. After seven years of marriage life … now as a family we sit together and watch this marriage cds on my Anniversary or once in a while. I and my son call this cd as “Joke CD”.  The video coverage studio was in Madurai.

All the animations done in that cd was a amazing thing for all of our family members. The only thing I was not able to forget was … my brother in law included some latest Tamil movie songs in the marriage cd … he got scoldings from the elderly persons from our family … and they blamed him that he spoiled the christian marriage process …. Then again he went to the video studio to remove the movie songs and then he  placed christian songs. We could hear the same set of songs in most of our marriage videos.

In those days our marriage function, reception in Madurai and the reception in Ramanthapuram … took 4 complete cds to record.  Nowadays its pretty simple that all the three function could have been be stored in a single dvd.

ordinary bus – 144 Rupees from Chennai to Madurai

Right now I am traveling in government bus (ordinary bus – 144 Rupees from Chennai to Madurai). I boarded bus around 8:30 pm near Gundy area. The bus looks like old one but the driver is overtaking most of the other vehicles including the private buses. When we reached Thindivanam bus conductor said ‘there will be a ten minutes refreshing time. Those who wants to have food could eat in this hotel’. Immediately a former said ‘you stoped the bus in front of a costliest hotel in Tamilnadu’. Every one in my bus laughed. Now I am continuing my journey in the same bus. The only difference is both the driver and the conductor got changed.

Even though the bus stopped at three places for refreshment, it was able to reach Madurai earlier. 🙂

Stick no bills – Drink and pay bills

I took this photo in Tirunagar,Madurai. A boy (school boy) was selling Tender coconut. When there was no customer he was studying his text book. Although we (govt)are talking about child labour it is still happening. Another interesting thing you can see a wall saying “stick no bills”. But no one respond to the instruction. Just below that big advertisements are drawn, why because the rules and laws are not strict in our country.
