தமிழ்த் தாய் வாழ்த்து

WhyMs it was reduced to Shorter version for Official purpose? Is it intentional by Politicians? It is incomeplete without second paragraph. Please raise your views. I would propose to have full version of Song rather than edited one.

 

தமிழ்த் தாய் வாழ்த்து

நீராரும் கடலுடுத்த நிலமடந்தைக் கெழிலொழுகும்
சீராரும் வதனமெனத் திகழ்பரதக் கண்டமிதில்
தெக்கணமும் அதிற்சிறந்த திராவிடநல் திருநாடும்
தக்கசிறு பிறைநுதலும் தரித்தநறும் திலகமுமே!
அத்திலக வாசனைபோல் அனைத்துலகும் இன்பமுற
எத்திசையும் புகழ்மணக்க இருந்தபெரும் தமிழணங்கே!

பல்லுயிரும் பலவுலகும் படைத்தளித்துத் துடைக்கினுமோர்
எல்லையறு பரம்பொருள்முன் இருந்தபடி இருப்பதுபோல்
கன்னடமுங் களிதெலுங்கும் கவின்மலையாளமும் துளுவும்
உன்னுதரத் தேயுதித்தே ஒன்றுபல வாகிடினும்
ஆரியம்போல் உலகவழக்கழிந் தொழிந்து சிதையாவுன்
சீரிளமைத் திறம்வியந்து செயன்மறந்து வாழ்த்துதுமே!

Vellode Birds Sanctuary

Priya and Abhinav left Andipatti and started to Karur to pick up Ramya and Diya. My father in law is very happy if both his grand childrens are near by. On the way to Thalavadi, they stopped at Vellode Birds santuary. It is 13km away from Erode. Few snaps clicked at santuary are below.

Abhinav and Diya at Vellode

Both Diya and Abhinav were tired due to Summer and Travel. It was on Election results day and Priya kept messaging me to know the Lead status of TN assemply election.

Gopalaswamy Betta

It is a hill near Chamraj Nagar and it is 1400m above sea level. Lord Venugopala Temple is very ancient and it was built by the Hoysala King Ballala. Abhinav went with Arivalaghan Sir, Chittu who are neighbours and our well wisher. Abhinav inspired by Chittu’s Study skills and he want to be Doctor like her.

Palani

palani-muruganAfter our Kodaikanal trip, we were in dilemma either to head back Andipatti or Palani. But we spotted Palani bus in Kodaikanal Bus stand and we are all in for getting the Handsome Lord Murugan Blessings. The Bus Journey to Palani is very thrilling and adventurous.

Because the barricades are broken and at someplace there is none. Road is narrow than Badalagundu route. So Two vehicle crossing needs special attention and Driver should be smart enough. It took around 3 hours journey. We used my Brother help to move luggage to his shop and got priority seat in Temple winch.

Infront of  Maha Siddhar Bohar Shrine (Top) and Lord Muruga Shrine (Gold Tower)

We took Rs 10 ticket and had darshan in 5 minutes. Unusually, we stood before almighty for 10 minutes without push – pull from guards or devotees. There were 10-12 devotees including ourself was having darshan. It was always visual treat to keep seeing Lord Murugan and His blessings are unstoppable. Since it is past Lunch, we thought of taking Temple Annadhanam. But it queue were very long and halls were densely packed. We gave a skip and bought Temple prasad ( Pulioyadharai, Sarkarai Pongal and Panchamirtham). Abhinav agreed to take elephant path for getting down. It took 20 minutes and we took our luggage after few minutes relaxation and headed for Andipatti. 

Vaigai Dam and Jumbuliputtur

Vaigai dam is a good picnic spot for Theni district people. It is better to go on sunday because  park Lightings will be fully on sunday only. Dam has good flora, Views, Boating, Toy train and Children par. All are not greatly maintained but it is mediocre one.

Abhinav went with his little brother Danush. Thay had a fun time.

Vaigai Dam and Jambuli Puttur Temple

Jumbuliputtur is one of the Perumal Temple around my native. Mostly, people go every saturday to get blessings of Lord Narayanan. It is said to be ” Suyambu”. Before renovation, we can see a lot of paintings and Contribution person details where i always look for my grandfather’s name and feel happy. After renovation, the paintings are gone by cement coating. Medium sized Temple with Temple pond makes it very beautiful.

Kumbakarai

Kumbakarai is also one of the sweet picnic spot near by Periyakulam. It is kind of water falls with dangerous depth and boulders. There is no proper sign boards; so people with least information can meet a dangerous situation of drowning. My father met with small incident but he was saved. But there are few known places with less risk falls and enjoyable pond where kids can enjoy it. It is a reserve forest area and it is covered fully with green.

Kumba Karai snaps

There is two change room and one big shelter if it rains. Abhinav swam in water and he enjoyed. but we had a very limited time since it was drizzling. Forest officers called back all visitors because huge water flow risk from kodaikonal downfall. Since unknown quantum of water from kodai hills, it is better to be safer than expose to risk. People came with food and enjoed their food in shelter. It was really fun place. The Road to Kumbakarai has Mango farms on both sides. It was treat to see it and taste it.

Last Part will be continued in next post. Again Lazy attacked me !!!

Kodaikanal:

Like last year, we used L&T’s one of employee benefits. This time we booked 4 days 3 nights stay in Sterling Resort, By the Lake, Kodaikonal. Resort is at good location with good amneities ( Kids activity, cycling, camp fire, trekking, fire ball…etc). Though all are paid activities, we can enjoy with proper trainers. Food is average and our comparative mind tried to compare with Sterling, Munnar food.

We got Classic room which is very old, broken tiles, no carpet and very small. I would rate 2.5 out of 5 scale. We used Resort Travel desk for sight seeing. They have group tour and Private tour.  we took group tour with pickup / drop facitlity till Resort. We saw following places and Enjoyed quite a lot with drizzles / rain / snow ambient ( but rest of Tamil Nadu is under  scorching summer).

1. Boat Club – Row bat with boatsman ( because Person should be more than 14 years to get pedal boat)
2. Cycling around Lake
3. Horse Riding
4. Few View points
5. Guna Caves  (closed)
6. Pillar Rock
7. Kurinji Andavar Temple
8. Cokers Walk
9. Shopping place for choclates and personal care items
10. Few Falls ( just view and click)
11. Pine Forest
12. Two Park ( did not explore much)
13. Of course our Resort, it is full of flowers

1. Suruli Falls, Cumbum
2. Veerapandi
3. Kodaikanal & Palani
4. Kumbakarai Falls, Periyakulam
5. Jambuliputtur & Vaigai Dam, Andipatti

Suruli Falls, Cumbum

My Family and My Brother Family visited Suruli falls which is just 10 km away from Cumbum. Frequent mini bus services are available from Gandhi statue, Cumbum. Auto also shuttle with Rs 150 per side trip.

On the way to Falls
Suruli falls said to be very 365 days water fall. Because, it never disappointed me whenever i visit. Quantum of fall decided by the season, best fall is between June – November ( South west monsoon, north east monsoon ). This time, it was maiden water fall debut for my borther son Danush.
I took the honor for his bath at fall. He enjoyed water sprinkles till few sprinkle touched his face area. Elder people will find difficult to walk from Car parking area to water fall.
It is almost 1km walk with 120 steps to reach water fall. But those who can, it would be fantastic treat for body and soul.
Veerapandi

Veerapandi is lovely place with holy Gowmariamman Temple (Powerful godess) and Mullai periyar river which is perennial and beautiful to look. Veerapandi Shree Gowmariamman Temple festival is one of the big, famous, disciplined, highly divine and ancient festival. Goddess is very powerful deity and People offers many things as per Temple tradition.

 It is just 8 km away from Theni. During festival time you will get one for every 5-10 minutes that too for 24 hours; Late night frequency is less but you will not be disapponited. When i was kid, My father used to take me and my broether after closure of our shop (930pm). Me and my brother used to enjoy all the fun activites and great shopping experience of toys.
This time, we started a day before commencement of fun activities; there are less shops and games. But we had good darshan. Mullai periyar river also had good water flow; many people were enjoying and beating the summer with cool dip at river. It was visual treat to see.
Danush and Abhinav got special blessings from almighty. It always provide peace when we visit that temple though we missed few traditional offering. Photo courtesy is google.
Part 2 will be continued shortly. Feeling very lazy to write.
