It was fun to play tambola with relatives

After I moved to a new house in Madipakkam area, my wife was feeling a bit lonely because, of the previous apartment life.  There she was talking at least with my neighbourhood.  The new house is an individual house, bit bigger than the previous house she has to work hard to keep it clean. Alan (my son) will always keep his toys everywhere.

After a wonderful meal people are in a mood to sleep

Last weekend my house was filled with friends and relatives.  My uncle Jacob and aunty Jansi from Madurai, My Chithy DhanaSeeli and Chithappa Chellappa  (+ their Son Praveen and Daughter Pappu), Another Chithy Dora from Madurai and her Daughter Jemmy (+ Jemmy’s husband) .. another uncle Chandrasekar and his son Anand (+ his brother Jeba) .. another uncle Immanuel Jeyaprakash and aunty Leeli Mana Jothy (+ sister Merylin and Christal) ,and my sister Priya

It was like a festival. My wife was too busy in inviting them and serving drinks. Every one was wondering how my wife is going to prepare food for all the people gathered on that day. Fortunately we bought the Biriyani parcel from the church (St. James Church, Ullagaram, Chennai) because that day in church we celebrated the “Harvesting Festival“.

After we had a good lunch we played “Tambola” game. My son was too excited to play with more that ten people. Previously he has to play with two or three people only. It was fun an we enjoyed a lot.

Noise Pollution or Worshiping? ஒலி மசுபடுத்தலா இல்லை துதி பாடுதலா?

A couple of weeks back there was festival in my area ( Chennai, Tamilnadu, India ).  People were celebrated a new temple’s opening ceremony. So almost five or six days I don’t know exactly, they ware playing some spiritual songs from morning 5:30am to night 10:00 pm. I was not able to understand most of the songs.

In my area,  I noticed an old couple  (even me – because I usually sleeps at 2 or 3 am :( – morning 5:30 am is like a midnight for me) and a new born 3 moths old baby was not able to sleep properly.

I attended services in many churches all over India.  In few Churches people will be worshiping  in a  loud manner. For every thing there should be a limit.  My personal opinion just forget about political meetings, think about fellow human being before making noise. Especially when you are suing loudspeakers.

No GOD or spritual books advised us to distrub others by making loud noise!

Lot of police were running here and there to control the traffic. the whole city was converted in to one-way to avoid a traffic jam because of the weekend crowd.

Paret Green Buildings - Vasthuvoda Velayaaa?

Parrot Green Buildings - Vasthuvoda Velayaaa?

We started walking towards the ” Government Botanical Garden” from there because of the heavy crowd police were stopping all the vehicles almost a kilometer away.  On the way I saw a Church. In it’s wall I noticed a rock price filled with the details of when the building was started its service to the public. It was 1896.

We crossed the church and move up towards the garden. Every where police and volunteers stood and helping the tourists. In the next tern I noticed a pair of green buildings stood brightly because they were wearing a “Parr0t Green Building”. One second I thought it might have been the game of “Vasthu Sasthirangal”. Any how, in the background dark green color was helping the buildings to look somewhat better.

For the ship he didn’t put any price tag.) I bought a flute for Rs. 10, he gave me an offer of if i buy three flutes he will be “ok” with a price of Rs. 20. But I bought only one flute. In the next shop I bought a “Spider Man” mask for Rs. 8.00.

On both the sides of the road, people from different geography were busy in bargaining. Toy Balls for Rs 15 (pepsi or colo written on it) in were moved from the sellers hand to a crying kids hand.

Their parents were talking to the baby girl that her quota was over of that trip. I hope she don’t hear that, but her eyes wide opened and a slight smile blossomed in her face.

We reached the Government Botanical Gorden after 20 minutes of walk. One of team member bought the tickets. In front of the garden there was a board freely giving valuable information of the nearest tourist place.
