A Party at Buena Vista ECR Chennai

A Party at Buena Vista ECR Chennai

Sunday -- Energetically defining from the following perspectives.

  • Just like charging a mobile, we charge ourselves with energy to take up the assignments of the upcoming week with more enthusiasm and vigor.
  • Breakaway from the usual monotony and enthusiasm.

This party of my team has been scheduled at Buena Vista ECR, Chennai. But for some reason, I chose to avoid this. Some reason or many reasons? To take it up in a lighter vien and interestingly though. I strongly see that this post should also make up an interesting Sunday reading of a Sunday experience and a Sun (brighter) day post.

To recap some interesting facts about my philosophy, I would like the reader recall about our earlier discussions.

But in this occasion, I would'nt be able to refuse this for simple reason that Prathiba and Wudali very much wanted a team colloboration effort. With these and with tons of my reverence and respect to them, it had been an arduous ordeal on how to get escaped from this. This has been nagging my mind for a couple of days and Prathiba herself equally nurtured doubt even yesterday while I was in office, whether I would actually turn up. So why?

  • What was that preventing me?
  • What was the mental and/or physical hurdle that stands in between or at least pretends or supposed to stand in between?
  • Is it a tangible hurdle or a horizon or an illusion?

Just a simple and subtle reply -- Object reference not set to an instance of an object. But of course, the above philosophical thoughts hold good at least to some percentage. And to add, there are some transient reasons which I would like to enumerate.



  • First and foremost, I wanted to avoid certain people who does not have a seamlessly friendlier protocol to handshake with. While I don't want to finger point anybody directly, I was upset for at least a month when Ramesh Nagarajan resigned from our team and when Santosh was giving a hint that in a previous party, a casual feudal conflict with a member drew towards breaking the camel's back and that he also attending this event, my simple and sweet responsive action would be AVOID. And I did'nt wanted my closest friends (and most of them appearing in my blogroll) to get disappointed and hence Airtel came to my rescue by flashing a text message, while my bus just brushed past Maraimalai Nagar, where Airtel Chennai approximately transitions into Airtel Tamil Nadu GSM circle.
  • Second, I had enough of personal chores scheduled yesterday. I had to meet somebody at Chengalput as part of my Community Service for my group based at Selaiyur and for AshaNet, Chennai. More than just a luxurious party, I would prefer community service.
  • Third, I have enough of routine personal and professional commitments to deliver and my calendar schedules to adhere to, before going ahead with having fun at the beach resort. I have miles to go before I sleep. If you have watched Visu's film, 'Sakala Kala Sambhandhi', Visu would give an advise to Pandian (the actor) in the film in the following regarding his lover, who departed him and went to her village. He was roaming in the groves. His advise was "You just loved her. But you have'nt been on any dating affairs. Neither were any parental meets regarding betrothal. Even for this infatuation love itself, if you are supposed to succumb your emotions, ignoring the welfare of your family and your elder sister, who is widowed and you have the commitment to ensure that she gets a good life and settlement, it is shameless on part of you. First take care of your family and then you can roam like Devadass in all these groves. These nature and other greenery would not go anywhere. They would all wait for you forever." I personally feel that this is a greatest of great advise and in fact has a convergence to Robert Frost advise (and my favorite phrases, which you can see in my personal website also):

    The Woods are lovely dark and deep,
    But I have promises to keep,
    And miles to go before I sleep,
    And miles to go before I sleep.

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…
