Newer Clothes and from Novel Innovative Textile Shops

Newer Clothes and from Novel Innovative Textile Shops

Come festivals or memorable days like birthdays, weddings etc, it is our usual practice to buy new clothes, jewellery etc.  Perhaps, new cloths also mark formal business events like preparing for an overseas business trips, school opening etc. Clothes and garments have also of late become like an important gift items. The marketing efforts by the various textile merchants too show how competitive the textile markets have become.

I personally feel that textile shops in T Nagar to be really having excellent stock of good designs and collections. Just a fond recall of some instances and good testimonials about T Nagar textile shops are being shared across here. Sometime about five months back, myself and my friend wanted to buy some shirts for his sister's wedding. That was the time, when our workplace was also in North Usman Road. We almost searched for some good things in the newly opened Saravana Stores, Pothys, The Chennai Silks. We personally felt that The Chennai Silks is good for shirts and sarees of modern designs. But on a traditional touch weddings and gifts to closer friends (We had to purchase a saree gift for a friend sometime about three months back), I feel RMKV is the definitive choice.

This post does not rate anyone rather the bottomline of the post is to emphasize the greatness of textiles in each and every aspect of human life. As a Tamil proverb goes "Al Paadhi Aadai Paathi", a man is half adjudged by the textile he wears and his personality and so rightly, our forefathers have accorded the most prestigious position for clothes among the trio "Food, Clothes and Shelter". And we need to mention about the great achievements of RMKV in the textile segments too. A few of them are:

  1. The World's Longest Silk Saree
  2. A Silk Saree with largest number of (about 50000) colors in it.
  3. The latest innovation -- Reversible Silk Saree (A saree with two designs in itself -- front and back)

You need to add customer service also to the list for rmkv

I really had a wonderful experience, I just lost 500 rupees worth of shirt purchased from rmkv.

Today I feel cheated and look forward not to visit rmkv any time.

I purchased a shirt material after stitching and washing it, all the shine is gone and its totally wrinkled. rmkv says that its cotton so it would happen so.

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…
