A date with Hutch on Last Friday

A date with Hutch on Last Friday

I strongly feel that Hutch mobile operator in India is just only doing a puppet show with toy mobile phones and attached with zero utility value. Time and again, I have experienced and have heard of the most disgusting levels of GSM service from there. Whenever you call any Hutch number, there is a high probability that you would be greeted with "The subscriber you are trying to call is unreachable".  I think, even if Airtel in that perspective has some good network infrastructure, nevertheless, they also figure top in all sorts of shady activities. But let us leave alone to thier personal pleasures as we only need a good network for quicker, reliable and effective communication purposes.

Last Sunday, I was starting to Sabarimala and just after starting from workplace, I remembered that Sesadri wanted to give a bit of cloth to be kept near Manjamatha and returned back. When I went near Ashok Pillar to call him, his Hutch cellphone was experiencing deep slumber even in the most busy arterial place of Ashok Nagar -- a kind of GSM spectrum blackout. A couple of more calls to my other friends to get his landline number proved futile as they were using Hutch too. Finally, I got his landline number when I called my other friend with Airtel mobile and then called him over that number to get the cloth to start off on my pilgrimage to Sabarimala.

This is not an isolated incident. A lot of times text messages to Hutch from  Airtel would take about six to seven hours to deliver.  I think, TRAI should consider imposing some minimum baseline criterion for message delivery, voice quality to improve the services of cellular spectrum in the country.

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…
