ShutterFly Albums

ShutterFly Albums

I just came across a new album website which also provides subdomains for your website called ShutterFly. Check it out here. This was following the Sony ImageStation announcing a shutdown of the same.

As a token gesture, the initial album that was uploaded was very recent one -- Chennai CodeProject (CPians) Meet. Just wanted to update all about the new album website and a new Album too.

I admit that this album also forms part of 'Evergreen Memories' collection.

Bridal Tragedy -- A Shock To our Rich Culture

Bridal Tragedy -- A Shock To our Rich CultureWedding is a very holy religious function where two people unite for a newer life. The holy function starts with the bride and groom being arranged for a first level 'Get-To-Know-Each-Other' meet. Today while reading through a matrimonial advertisement, I recalled about an incident of bride-meet earlier. It is also evident that bridal families now feel more arrogant equipped by 'Women Security' acts of the Governement of India, which they try to bend and amend for thier comforts, whims and fancies. It happened about six months back when we have to meet the girl at her residence in West Mambalam. Even the first meet, the girl arrogantly didn't turn up. With great magnanimity, we forgave her. She had her cousin to work with one of the person in about the same vicinity of my workplace. So she wanted him to call me first and know about. Well! I appreciated her gesture through him also as her messenger. This was my second ges…

An initiative to temple help by Varalakshmi

An initiative to temple help by Varalakshmi

Sometime a month back Varalakshmi was discussing with me in her humble efforts of helping a small village temple near her hometown. I infact suggested her that she can also publicize in her weblog but either due to time constraints or other reasons, she couldn't do it. I just told her that I would try sharing about the temple too with other interested persons. The time constraints applied on me too and it took a while for me to share the same too.

The temple is actually located in 'Thirukkuvalai' district and the Lordess name is 'Sri Seethalaparameswari Tulasi Amman' temple and it is located in a village called Mutharasapuram.

Should you wish to join the efforts of helping the small historical village temple, click on 'Varalakshmi's weblog' link and check out with her.

Letter Writing Competition from Indian Postal Department

Letter Writing Competition from Indian Postal Department

With the advent of emails and handy mobile phones, the conventional and traditional postal means, for sure, is feeling a dwindle. To reinstate the vigor and inculcate good letter writing skills amongst school students, Indian Postal Department is organizing a letter writing competition. I have seen this news sometime about a weekback in Dinamalar but now could not locate it. The India Posts website too does not have a mention about it. However, as I recall, the contest can be participated by school students, duly authorized by the school heads.

You can check out Chennai Online News Post on this topic here and interested persons can check out Indian Postal Service website for more details and can contact them.

Slow and Steady Wins The Race

Slow and Steady Wins The Race

Everyone would have come across the interesting story of 'The Hare and Tortoise' where the hare was filled with pride and tortoise was very humble. Ultimately the humility which emerged as a champion enslaving the pride and prejudice. For those who are unaware of the story, here is a very quick narration of the same.
Once upon a time a tortoise and a hare had very much heated arguments on had more talents and faster execution skills of tasks. They came to a conclusion and settle up the argument by choosing on a racing front. They even chose a route and triggered off the race. The hare just shot off and ran briskly for some time. Then seeing that he was far ahead of the tortoise, he thought he'd sit under a tree for some time and relax before continuing the race. He sat under the tree and soon fell asleep. The tortoise plodding on overtook him and soon finished the race, emerging as the undisputed champ. The hare woke up and realized that he'…
