"A Gift of the Magi" from Uma to this blogger

I have been trying to locate a  good high resolution clear picture of Lordess Kamakshi at Mangadu for sometime close to an year now. Interestingly the website of Mangadu Kamakshi temple also seems to have only a low resolution picture of the Lordess.

My sincere thanks to Uma from Pammal who endeavored to help in getting a good high resolution image scanned and shared across.

And as a rarest breed of coincidence the scanned image came up on the Christmas Eve day making it a gift of the magi and a greatest divine blissful shower of blessings.

Happy Thiruppavai Celebrations and Happy Holidays!

Happy Birthday Rajinikanth!

Superstar Rajinikanth celebrates his 61st birthday. Despite being a stunning universal superstar, he is known for his extreme simplicity, respect to elders and god-fearing attitude. Even one of the interviews regarding Enthiran for the next thing he is planning he was observed to show a gesture 'All credits to God'.

That humility and god-fearing attitude is the one taking him to high peaks, fortifying him like anything and the gestures of which we should learn from him.

Let us join him to wish 'Many Many Happy Returns Of The Day'. Enjoy Maadi!
