Routines accomplished...

When i wrote this last year, it was the only season i missed in the last 15 years. Fortunately this year i was back to charge my batteries. Currently amidst of very tight show-like-working, deliberately took a week off, visited kuttralam.

Also today is Aadi 18. This is the day when newly weds visit Kaveri, offer prayers, and let the marraige garland into the river.

This year is Thalai aadi, but due to this, the aadi perukku was not celebrated but just observed from few hundred miles away from home.

Though offerings were not made, the custom of Kalanda saadam, was aptly kept up. Am typing this after a sumptuous lunch of Puliyansadam, Thengaai saadam, Akkaraadisal, Thayir sadam, Karuvadaam, more milagaai.. :P

And may this Aadi perukku keep the world fertile and peaceful.

And am very happy to share with you that, Metter dam has consistently maintained a Record Level of 100ft for one continuous year till yesterday. :)

Also, the Tamizh Daily calendar in the right hand side, has started to work again, after being down for sometime. :)

Visited Kutralam on 12th and 13th August and we were lucky enough to be there accompanied by drizzle and rains...which made all water-falls shower on us heavily....

Rock on man!! Nice site u have here!! You know some of the most fascinating places I’ve seen when traveling is in India!! India is so cool to an extent, that when u’re there..u see the simplicity of life mixed with modernism, u can’t help feel like it’s heaven!! The safaris, the trekking, wildlife and sooo much more to see there!!
