An Acid Test on my Samsung E1410

An Acid Test on my Samsung E1410

It seemed to be a testing Monday morning. I was actually having some hot coffee around 11 AM. Somehow a tripartite infiltration of incoming calls landed up on all the ringing devices on my desktop. Not sure which one to prioritize first for a moment and the moment was almost reeling through an impasse decision to come up. Though I could manage the invitees a bit, my 'thirsty mobile' grabbed a good bit of the caffeinated drink. Fortunately, since there was a protective cover on it, the amount of liquid that penetrated was minimized to a greater extent.

The rest of the day vested me with an additional onus of 'recovery process' for the same. Whilst Airtel managed to handle with elegance through its Missed Call Alerts facility, I had disassembled the mobile to allow it to dry at least till 7 PM. After that I needed to do quick visual check up of the same to ensure there are no visible water droplets which might rot the fine delicate electronic gadgets within the chassis of the mobile. A quick visit to the Samsung service center in the neighborhood and a call to Samsung customer care flagged green that there was not much damage to it. Towards night, for a couple of calls, I recieved complaints from the other parties that there were crackling sound. Towards redressing the remnant maladies, I chose to continue the 'drying exercise' outlined in a few websites pointed by Google.

I ran through a couple of test calls from today morning to a diversified networks and from different zones like congested places, free isolated and quarantined sections of the city and it seems the situation is out of being grim now. The protective cover needed to be discarded because of the intensity of damage. Perhaps towards this is what we have a saying in Tamil which goes like this "தலைக்கு வந்தது தலைப்பாகையோட போச்சு". This saying has a good relation to the epic tale of Mahabharata. When Karna and Arjuna were directly against each other in the battle field, ferocious Karna aimed a very powerful weapon at Arjuna. Lord Krishna, who was helping Arjuna in the role of charioteer, pressed hard the chariot with His thumb and the chariot started immersing a good deal into the earth. Now the sharp arrow which was aimed at Arjuna's head just hit his crown and went away. The peril that targetted his head got diluted and dispersed off with the head cover alone.

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…
