My Eyes are getting red. Am I angry? Nay. The spectacles are being migrated to a more pristine, powerful and cool one...

About six months back, my colleague (Pradeep Joe Felix) was asking me why is my spectacles little looking imbalanced. I used a little trick to adjust the screws to save budgetary expenses and by taking help of a local optician in my area.

About two months back, I attended a eye check camp from Dr. Agarwal. I got some clues regarding my inconvenience in the vision because my power levels has diminished whereas my spectacles were little high powered. I had enqueued a task like 'Visit to my optician' in my Todolist. But it had been lingering around there for a while without much realisation.

To support and encourage the visit to the optician, interestingly, I got a post card mailer from him too announcing some good offers and discounts on various spectacles and frames for a limited time period around a month back.

It looks like my Todolist has reached the threshold point now and today it had escalated to the next higher level. In the morning during the routine cleaning up exercise, one of the lens just came out and developed an irreparable and an irreversible crack. Now, the Todolist item has been actioned upon. Along with, I had joined together two more things besides satisfying my wallet too.

  1. Another quick eye checkup. This time it turns out distinctly a little tangible power change in both the eyes, which should address the inconvenience being suffered hitherto.
  2. Cosmetic touchup to the spectacle eye frames.

The discount offer came in handy saving a good percentage of expenses on lens and frames. The above medical visit and exercise did took a few hours in the forenoon before I could return to work in the afternoon.

As a stopgap arrangement while the previous lens is being addressed of its malady and is being migrated to a newer set, my backup spectacles is being used now. They have a little marginally high power (around six months old) which I would need to endure for a day or two at least. But the transition itself seems to be little tricky. The higher power seems to be causing a little itching sensation and reddening because of prolonged exposure to computer monitors and the high amount of radiation prevailing in the ambience.

No doubt there is no gain without a little pain and effort. A little endurance through this turbulent travail, I hope, should open up green pastures and more brighter window ahead. Wish me!! The caption also travels closely to the traffic lights. There is always the first red light in the traffic light warning you to stop. Then comes the amber (optionally) in high traffic arterial junctions. Finally, you see the green which shouts to you 'Way to go, my darling!'

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…
