Coming back to India after 2.5 yrs with so much excitement and anticipation . Some sort of happiness which is tough to narrate !! Lots of changes..Still some things are pretty much the same....ulla irundha effect.. Cant predict which is gonna be same and which will differ..This post is just reflection of what I felt in the last 10 days comparing what i saw before.
Yaanai velai kudarai velai : Had a chance to have breakfast with my appa at Saravana bhavan, annanagar on the very next day after i reached.., 1 sambar vadai, 1 plate idi (thinnest idli i have ever seen),2 coffees,1 ghee dosa - bill Rs.130 ...saapadu enna velaiyappa !!!
Instantaneous anger: After having the feel that if somebody honks, its ur fault at u.s, I was extremely irritated when somebody behind us honked to overtake and take a wrong side left turn..Now i am getting used to the sound.
Cell phone vaangalayo cell phone: Oh My God!!! pookkari, kuppai porukravan also have cell phone- no exaggeration i saw it.. One day (After 4-5 yrs), (ELLORUM PAITHIYAM PIDICHU SAAGAPORAANGA)everybody is going to lose the endothelial layer on the ear drum and everybody is gonna get all neurotoxcity!!! ENT's and psychiatrists are gonna have bright future !!!
Lie and exaggeration : No journal / magazine or t.v channel gives unbiased / unexaggerated news or info. You have use to your brains to extract truth in every info- very much like mamiyaar marumaga sandai!!
aiiiiiiii: I see the traffic signal timer in chennai now..good!!
Pudhusu ivai pudhusu:
National institute of siddha in sanatorium - wow... we are promoting our own traditional medicine system
Kathipara nehru statue - apdiye alaaka thooki pakkathula vechirukkanga for constructing a bridge there
Yaar ivar: a new statue covered by 'thaarpalin sheet' ready to be installed infront of raj bhavan
Auto vaa: Close ur eyes and whisper auto- you would see one infront of you..
Hospitals and scan centers: as of what i see, they are extremely well maintained..
Lady auto drivers in madurai.
Lady paper podravanga in chennai.
Kaaikari vilai- still the same - really cheap!!
Nice weather: Nalla veyyil.. longed to see and feel such weather..every sweat gives me happiness..my skin pores respire properly.
Manithan maaravillai: Appa amma paasam and sentiment, friends looti, T.V serial , relatives formality, paati thatha nocchal are still the same.. But engu paathalum ore odi poyittanga, love marriage news - looks like chennaiites life is revolving around Love or I dont know if people around me are just talking all about Love and Marriage!!! Could not see any young people in temples !!! Ennatha solla !!
still...Scooty rides, share auto, temple visits, road side cane juice, 2 rupees orange drink- lots of things !!
Enjoying my trip !!!
