Today's Tuesday made me like a cruel high school teacher with a whip on hand ...

Today had been making me to look a little aggressive and appear like a cruel (though not wicked anyway :)) and a harsh high school teacher with a long whip on hand to penalise the bad guys. As a day broke out, I had a few social concern activities that needed my attention.
  1. A truant telemarketer allegedly from some underworld vacation club kept pestering for some membership. I have never been carried away by such mundane distractions as one of my previous post describes my personal preference. And this telemarketing 'solicitation' really made me to 'mark him in my Todolist' to teach them a lesson. They also were vehemently violating the NDNC norms and as a good citizen, I would need to help the statutory administration to book them. I would like to draw your attention to my Views and Reviews post of this incident over here.
  2. I had to draw the attention of my colleague towards 'Elevator Culture' today particularly to point 9.1. Out of his good intent, he helped one, who in turn brought in a big bunch of others causing an undue twenty second delay for the elevator. We recalled about a joke of Vadivelu and Vijay wherein the former would be working in a small hotel managed by the latter. When a former's villager was visiting him, Vijay advises him that he should feed him as it is a gesture of good hospitality. The villager first refuses but since Vadivelu persisted on his request, the villager agrees but there is an interesting turning point. Instead of just the villager and his colleague entering the hotel, he invites a big bunch of his colleagues (almost a full bus of them) to the tea shop. Vijay was telling him 'I was believing two but now you brought your entire village to my shop for free lunch' and the comedy goes that way.
  3. There was another big hurl of telemarketing call from Citibank claiming that by virtue of having a salary account with them they wanted to provide some crappy financial planning services. I had to 'shoo shoo' them for their disturbance besides my good citizenship gesture of reporting to my cellular operator.
  4. There was another one part of (3). When I reported the Citibank violation to Airtel, I got a gibberish crappy scribble from the customercare. Inspite of me reporting the number he was telling that I am reporting an anonymous call and he wanted me to register an FIR when it was the cellular operator's responsibility to register report and take action. I had to come down on him little heavily and shower some rather powerful hot and blazing thunderous blows for his bad English-language understanding capabilities besides his unethical attitude of shirking his moral responsibilities for which he is paid for by his organization.
I should thank the Nature for putting me the cap of a teacher today. I admit I was rather harsh with a big whip on hand but the bottomline of the story is actually substantiated by the following proverbs "Spare the rod and spoil the child". In Tamil, the proverb is "அடி உதவுவது போல் அண்ணன் தம்பி உதவ மாட்டார்".

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…
