Lived the memory


It is always feels good to visit your native where your ancestors lived and belonged!! I use to visit my native Chidambaram every year, it was 1990’s which made this place more memorable!!

Those days it was dirty, smelly & people’s attire showed they were from a rural place!! These day the town has improved a lot on cleanliness & people way of dressing!! It is coming close to urban standards!!

I keep visiting relatives, dad’s friends, Nataraja temple and movies as a child!!

On completing my graduation and after getting busy with work there was no time for friends, relatives, temple and movie!!! Still I went to Chidambaram which was go & come the same day visits, which was mainly for offering Pooja for our community God!!!

This week I’ve made sure I stay and cherish my childhood life back!! Unfortunately I couldn’t visit relatives, friends & Nataraja temple.. It was a tiring drive and work as always!!!

But I went for a drive around this small town and went for a movie which I remember going almost 13 years back!!!


Then closed my day watching Aranmanai 2 at Lena Theatre!!

Finally could live a small part of my childhood!!!

My Blog Kindles Nostalgia


Just realized after seeing Roobans Facebook feed that it has been 3 years since we went on a Vagabond trip…

Couldn’t believe its 3 years as events still remain in front of me and it looks as if it happened yesterday…

While we 3 musketeers were driving on OMR and planning for a routine weekend… Kavi in his own ways asked if written can drive long?

Immediately without hesitation Rooban and I agreed…. Immediately we took a U- Turn and the rest is history…

Immediately after the experience I blogged it and today the blog took us to Nostalgia… Today definitely the memory lives…

Am typing this blog without seeing what I blogged 3 years back… But these are things I remember;

  • Started driving to Yelagiri by 11 from Chennai…
  • Stopped in a road side dhaba for some food and drink somewhere neat kancheepuram…
  • Reached Yelagiri by 4ish in the morning…
  • Slept in the car…
  • Booked a room for an hour to refresh and for bath… Quarreled with the owner for being harsh…
  • Had break fast in a road side bhai kadai…
  • Saw a guy who met with an accident and offered our mineral water bottle…
  • Met a Thala fan…
  • Saw a guy who was constructing gate villas…
  • Went to Fab end and had ice-cream in a shop…
  • Spent some time on a tower near the lake…
  • On way back took a pic of a school van which had something wrong…Rooban bro do you remember what was wrong?
  • Briyani at Khaja Restaurant at Ambur by evening…
  • Back to Chennai by 8…
