Thirupachi for Kuladeivam


Was unable to sleep the whole night because of new environment… Anyways my BlachBerry helped me stay in touch with my work and for Browsing… Then I went for an early morning walk around the town and it was nice to see the entire town… Then we drove to our native and reached our Kuladeivam temple at 5 AM…

After having a wonderful darshan we travelled back & I had a nap for 3 hours because I had to drive back and had to party the whole night… My mom came back by 12 o clock after finishing her work and we started from Chidambaram at 1.30 PM and reached Chennai sharp by 5.30PM…

Only thing I missed this time is my sister… Every-time she use to sit with me while driving and keep talking with me… Also we talk a lot in the temple… This is for the first time we went to Kuladeivam temple without her…

Visit to Kuladeivam


It was suddenly planned by my mother to offer prayers to our Kuladeivam… So, we decided to drive to Chidambaran today & I had to wait for my father and he returned from work only by 3.40PM and we started at 4.30 PM finally… On reaching Porur By-pass toll we had to wait for 20 min to cross it because of the crowd… Then it was traffic until Chengelpet Toll…

From then it was smooth drive listening to Chennai Suriyan FM until Thindivanam Toll & again 20 KM from there we got Pondy Suriyan FM… After reaching Pondy we filled the tank and then we stopped at a Palagan for flavored milk & Kulfi in the entrance of Mahatma Gandhi Medical College…

Then we reached my aunts house by 9 o clock and after having dinner I went for a small walk to buy some Bananas… Then I took a small walk around the place where I spent as a child… I was startled to see those areas getting neat and posh… All Muttram sandhu (Urine Streets) becoming neat & pleasant to walk… Lots of old houses giving space to apartments…

When I got the builders number and called them I was surprised to know that it costs Rs.4000 per sq. ft. which means it is Rs.40 Lakh for a 1000 sq ft house… Anyways I was happy to see such small towns getting on par with City’s…
