My Philips Tape Recorder -- Routine Health Checkup and a Humourous Melodrama with Canara Bank T Nagar

My Philips Tape Recorder -- Routine Health Checkup and a Humourous Melodrama with Canara Bank T Nagar

My Philips Two-in-One was experiencing some health downtime for the past some days. There were some hiccups, coughing, bad throat (or soar throat). I was trying to find out the nearest authorised clinic (service center) for Philips and homed in on to the regular one at T. Nagar. After two days of in-patient treatment, now he is jumping back to normalcy.

Today while negotiating with the T. Nagar service center, there were some interesting melodrama too. Instead of wasting time as this guy does the checkups, I thought, I would do some little banking with the Canara Bank. Albeit the fact my account was at Adyar branch, the account operations were now possible anywhere as long as the guest branch I am transaction has been brought under CBS (Core Banking Services). My branch (host branch) is already under CBS. Here goes an interesting conversation me and Canara Bank.

Me > I need to make a deposit to my Adyar KB
Bank Staff (Sleepy) > No. No. I am busy now. Nobody is at the counter for CBS. Come tomorrow.
Me > If nobody is at the counter, then what are you doing over here (cynically)?
Bank Staff (Sleepy) > I came for something else here. I am going back to my other counter.

(I walked a couple of steps to the manager's cabin and put a word to him. The intercom rings from manager's cabin. The same guy comes rushing inside as if he was being chased by a mad dog. Hurriedly, he took my challan, made deposit and came back and gave it back to me.)

That completes a humourous drama with Canara Bank, T. Nagar. This was the second such incident with Canara Bank, T Nagar. I think this branch is packed with full slumber guys. If I start comparing these lazy jerks with my KB Nagar, the system will throw System.StackOverflowException.

Heaven knows when these guys would repent and mend their ways or are they dog's tails that never straighten up?

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and Restrictions

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and RestrictionsOne of my friend was suggesting me this -- "Why can not you put up some kind of blog post or an article summarizing the 48 day observation rules to be observed. Well. I had a small pocketbook and a couple of PDFs circulating in the emails.Most of the rules normally are hearsay from our elders to us. As my friend suggested, today since I was relatively free, just thought I would update it as bullet points, so that future Ayyappa Swamis  can immensely benefit from the same.While my pocket books are in Tamil, I am attempting to compile the same in English. Should you find discrepancies, share your thoughts and observations as comments.Most of the rules and observationary regulations are purely for our own control and development -- to streamline our day-to-day chores.All round the work time, keep your mind only focused on the Lord. Even the work you do is being instrumented by the Lord. Dedicate the same to the Lord.  Perhaps, Bh…

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

There was one Swami (Karthik) who had expressed a bit of dejection since on a particular day, he could not wake up early and he was feeling a bit down as expressed over here. As far as my little information goes, I think, our guruswami's have taken these issues into consideration and the Arindhum Ariyamalum sloka that we recite accomodates for all these mistakes that are committed with and without our knowledge.

I searched a while to give this sloka lyric to Swami but since I could'nt get it, I have typed it myself in a Word document using a Ayyappa picture and Unicode Tamil and captured as JPG using Irfanview. I would like to share the same with other readers as well.

Om. Arindhum Ariyalum Therindhum Theriyalum
Naangal Seitha Sagala Kutrangalaiyum
Poruthu, Kathu Rakshithu Arul Puriya Vendum
Sathiyamay Ponnu Pathinettam Padi mael Vaazhum
Kasi Rameswaram Adakki Aalum
Om Hari Hara Sudhan, Ananda Siddhan Ayyan, Ayyappa
Swamiyae Saranam Ayyappa.

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) Temple

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) TempleA calm and poised atmosphere near Vellore, the most elegant town of Tamil Nadu in the district of Arakkonam is a village called Nemili. Seated in her own house, Sri Bala Tripura Sundari has been incessantly showering her blessings on Her devotees for several years. I have also heard of Her temple from my relatives but it is a significant truth cum stipulation that unless the Lordess wishes you to see you, it is becoming almost next to impossible to go to this temple. Even to search information on the website, I think, I could not locate it till now and just reached a YahooGroups website NemiliBala. I wanted to share a few info about this temple so that other pilgrims too can get benefitted by praying to the Lordess for Her darshan and blessings.Other temples of Tripura Sundari:ThiruvanmiyurTri SoolamThirukazhunkundramThiruvathiaiSirkazhiHistory of the Temple/Sthala Varalaru:The significance of Bala Tripura Sundari unlike Her other temples enlisted a…
