Juvenile Mobile (Mis) Use

Juvenile Mobile (Mis) Use

The greatest advantage of technology these days are the vast penetration of communication tools and elements to all parts of the world from biggest towns to even remote villages. And by far, at least, with respect to the developing nations, cellular phone seems to be a good succinct and tangible example for this technological development.

At the same time, I used to wonder whether this technological advent and miracle is being used correctly. The other day when I was commuting back to home from work, I had a chance to wait in the bus at Vijayanagar bus stand and watching some amusing incidents.

  1. I have been seeing one girl constantly on her cell phone right from Ambal Nagar through Vijayanagar. At Vijayanagar, even whilst alighting from the bus and negotiating the road cross, she was holding the cell phone and flirting out with little higher acoustics itself. Crossing the road, at least in traffic-sensitive Vijayanagar needs more careful attention. She has thrown safety to air and given precedence to a mundane attraction taking wilfully bad advantage of a technological gadget. I used to wonder how much they end up paying up every month for their mobile phone bills. In one of my previous organizations, my colleague (Mariappan Natarajan) used to tell when we started from workplace and going to bus stand in the evening that these girls should not be completely trusted as they are in a call. At least in a close proximity, they would present an illusion as if they are in a call.
  2. The second sight is mobile phones at schools and colleges. I really wonder what is the exact need of a mobile phone for a college student. Can he/she restrict with a normal telephone number provided by the college to communicate back to parents alone? A mobile phone unleashes and removes controlled communication lines and now they can go haywire too.

Would parents think of all the possible situations before giving a mobile phone to their college kids?

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…
