On a cool rainy day with my bro (who rarely come out with us), dad, mom and uncle visited on a plan to Tirupporur Murugan Temple. Everyone loves rain, I enjoy more rain in driving, and it’s childish to keep the hands out on the rain. The road towards the temple till kelambakam the was fed up, its full of contour and water on many places, it was lesson for not to use this road till it properly put. If we cross the city to country side, its pleasure to see bulls, goats crossing the roads and playing, but it’s a big disturbance for vehicles and these livings have chance to face bloody by the speed vehicles. Have been inside the Murugan temple some years back, but now as usual settled in the car and watching the temple tank which was filled with water, between taking snaps of tank, goats, tower of temple.
After worshiping lord Muruga, we turned on East Cost Road towards Mahabalipuram; on the way the sky becomes very dark and started to pore heavy rain. Some on the road’s arriving to a hide places, and the bulls keep on standing in the center of the road without feeling the rain. Went to one of grandma’s traditional family deity Karukkathamman temple in mahabalipuran, which was on construction, as we arrive the temple, was closed because of untimely. In my childhood days I have spent much of times in the surrounding places of this temple, when ever I visit our relative’s house. It has a pond and green trees to make the afternoon cool. Many times went to the pond with cousins to bathe, as I am fear of water, will not drop my feet’s inside the pond because of an warning of mire, but my cousins bravely jumps from the rock to pond. There was also a small hill near the Temple, every time we used to climb few feet on the hill to worship Ganesh, which was carved on the rock in Pallava times. On the rocks we can find some red stain for few meters, and my grandma used to tell me a story for the red stain, that the God in the temple killed the giant person who always disturb the village people and pulled him through this rocks and bury under the temple. After spending some time we had a wonderful drive on the ECR.
Again on last Friday (Dec 1) I got another change to go a drive on ECR to attend a new home function in my grandma’s village Thiruvadanthai near Kovalam, with cousins. This village has one of my sweetest days I have spent in my life; it has beautiful lake, ponds and lovely relatives. Now our relatives are shifting from there old tiles house to concrete roof house, which has much designed works on windows, doors, roof…. It was surprise to see an old type of house in concrete roof in this modern construction. Took the car with bro and cousins, rounded the village visited the pond, temple where we were roaming with Palm fruit vehicles. They serve Tiffin with famous Kushboo Idly and the sambar was so nice, I was totally enjoyed the day.
