A good trip of appa's to Sabarimala.

My appa was off to Sabarimala and was there last Saturday and Sunday 15, 16 Jun'08. As my school re-opened on the 13th and also had full working day on the 14th had to miss this trip. May be will try and make it next trip.

After having a good bath in the river in Chenganoor appa and his friends total 14 of them proceeded to Pamba enroute having good food arranged by member's families. We could not do any thing as my amma had recording on Friday the day they left. We managed to see them off at the Temple before they left to the station. Understand appa enjoyed the entire trip and had a good pilgrimage trip to Sabarimala.

I understand the crowd was very less and so they all could have close dharshan and also any number of times they wanted. Indeed a great trip!!

Appa called us on the 16th morning from the Mahasannidhanam and said any one can call Lord Iyyappa on mobile as he had one to answer. I just thought he was joking then later understood that he had lost his mobile. He was just worried only about the contact numbers stored in the phone and Sim card.

I just want to tell all my well wishers to please try and update your contacts if you have stored or else please get to the practice of storing and updating same in your computers. Appa had updated before 2 months but had made lot of changes and so could probably mange to get 75% of the contacts. I thought of putting this info so that it helps all who sees this message and get the useful habit of storing and updating contacts.

2008 Summer holiday tour!

My Holiday trip to - Sterling Swamimalai

It was once again a great holiday trip with my parents and grand parents (appa's parents) & this time it was suddenly decided and we went on a 3day trip to Swamimalai on the 5th June morning. We went straight to Sterling Swamimalai and had a swim in the pool which looked like a temple tank. A great property to stay which makes you feel as if you are in a village. The cottages / rooms are all like individual house in small streets and you find every thing you can see in a village in a great working condition. From a coffee powder making machine, bullock cart, boilers, old vessels, a two bladed fan, etc etc.. I have given here a set of photos of our trip which has many photos of the resort and am sure it will interest you to visit it too! It is really a worth visiting destination!

We also saw many temples and spent most of my time in the Swimming pool with appa and thatha. We enjoyed the trip with dharshans at various temples and as a dhristi had a minor accident on way back. Our car got hurt and god saved us! The photos of the driver and the bus which hit us while the driver was trying to reverse his vehicle without noticing our car, are also given in this link. This was the only mishap in the entire trip which otherwise was indeed a memorable experience!

IPL finals after my concewrt on 01 June, 2008

After the concert today at Marundheewarar Temple, Thiruvanmiyur, Balu uncle asked us to come to his house for watching the IPL finals in big screen. However he was not aware that his family was planning to give him a surprise with a nice get-together with a audio visual presentation of his family and also giving a surprise to hi with all his well wishers and family members joining to greet him. I believe it was really good and my parents enjoyed the whole evening with this celebration. I did not know as i thought it was just for the cricket, which any way i had planned to see with my Kanna mama in is residence. He preferred to stay out of this dinner due to medical reasons. H/ever had we known that it was a birthday party we also would have been there. These are pictures taken during the function.

A memorable concert tour to Trichy - 31st May'08

It was a memorable trip to Trichy for the concert on the 31st Mar'08 in three ways. The concert came out good, a good trip to visit Srirangam and Ucchipillayar Temples and one in which we celebrated Arjun Ganesh anna's birthday on stage!. This was also the first outstation trip with my new camera Casio - Exslim, thanks to Diwakar uncle for buying it for me from USA.

Amma, Arjun anna, Sowri uncle and self went to Srirangam Temple and Ucchi Pillaiar temple as appa had to wait for Vijayaraghavan uncle who was joining us from Bangalore. We had the oppurtunity to go into the Srirangam temple but could not have a good dharshan, may be we are blessed for a trip soon. Then on we went to Rockfort temple and had good time climbing the rocky mountain but with good steps.

In the evening appa gave us all a surprise with a small cake cutting ceremony to celebrate Arjun Ganesh anna's birthday! He also announced a prize for any one who guesses the age of Arjun Ganesh anna correctly! Almost the entire crowd could not guess it correctly with age being said from 18 - to 46 (this was toooooo much!) H/ever two 12 year old children Amaranth and Sanjana guessed his right and were given a audio cassette of my vol 1 & 2. They were so happy and here is the same quiz passed on to you.

If any one can guess his age right to spelt out and Arjun Ganesh anna will give you nice gifts if you do not say it correctly!!! after all he also wants to be young for ever!!

I was once again blessed to meet a spiritual person who is fondly referred as "Iyyah" and he blessed me with Viboodhi and Kunguma". I saw a sparkling eyes with great divinity and was happy to have got his blessings. Hope you like these pictures and for more get to the link:
