My all time favorite. My saviour. The one, the only Lord Ganesha.

How did Mylapore get it’s name? Look no further!

Happy Vijayadasami

Filed under: Hinduism,Humour,Life — Teal @ 10:28 pm

Our gallant heroine wakes up at 8 am on vijayadasami and does other household chores like a chamathu ponnu [Good girl] that she is. Our heroine Teal’s Sub Conscience takes the driver’s seat in this post. Will be denoted as Teal’s SC.

Statutory Warning: Excessive Usage of emoticons.

Teal: [stretching widely] … Yaaawwwnnnnnnn …

Teal’s SC: :-W How long will u put off the obvious? Somberi Kazhudha [Lazy Donkey!!!]……
Teal: Peace out dude .. i am already busy with stuff!

Now comes the point where the herione does the all pervading job of eating mammu,[food] drinking payasam[kheer] and watching flopped “megahit” thiraipadams [movies]  on regional channels, telecasted for the very first time!

Teal : Yawn …… Me is the sleepy.

Teal’s SC: Books ellam pujaiku vecha porathu .. apo apo thoosi thatti vechukanum. [It’s not sufficient to just keep books and perform poojas … you should occasionally dust them and use them too ..]

Teal: Hey, u have a point.

Teal’s SC: One day in a year all you people nicely escape from reading stuff .. on account of Saraswati Puja.

Teal: Don’t be so jealous. You don’t have a saraswati puja day in the world of sub consciousness. And you consciences are always supposed to suggest good things and point the materialistic brains in the right direction, am I right?

Teal’s SC: Yeah you are right… engalukkum bore adikardhu … but we are the conscious after all …. 😎

Teal : Here comes the sermon … **Yawn**

At 10:30pm in the night, after chamathu ponnu Teal visits the surrounding temples and comes home.

Teal’s SC: Now you better do what you’ve effective postponed all day long!

Teal: [a look of revelation on her face]: Oh yeah!Thanks conscience!

Teal’s conscience looks at the sky and mutters “why the me?”

So here I am typing away my post … and my conscience is bullying me to spend my time in fruitful tasks … so …

Happy Happy Vijaydashami folks!

May this day dawn upon you all wonderful beginnings of miracles in the days to come. 😀

Teal’s SC: Peterrr uttadhu podhum .. poi thoongu.[Enough of speaking too much english, go to sleep]

Teal: ***Enna kodumai saar idhu?[What crap is this Saar?]

Of Conundrum, Chaos and Golu Gala! :-D

Filed under: Amman,Girl Power!,Hinduism,Life — Teal @ 12:01 am

The past week had been pretty hectic and worrying due to many reasons. Yeah pretty worrying for even my standards of thick skinned-ness. But thanfully it has all tied down. Post Malaya paksham after ammavasya officially is the beginning of this year’s navaratri …. I can take it that most junta who come here have already seen my previous year’s post explaining in detail, the way 9ratri’s being celebrated here … Anyhoo .. This year most of Navaratri spans across the weekdays, so no OC – sundall 😦 or the constant nagging to sing wherever I go 😛

And Saraswati Pooja and Vijayadasami on the weekend!

Bah! Humbug!!!!!


But yesterday, me and Dad set the steps for this year’s golu and since I cant invite most of ya home to see my golu … u can see it below ….. [No Sundal though, sorry about that ! ;-)]

The Amman of TVK Industrial Estate

Filed under: Amman,Girl Power!,Hinduism — Teal @ 11:43 pm

This is the picture of a small amman temple by the side of the every dusty and ever-so-comfortable roads of the TVK estate which lead me to my workplace. This statue reminds of the small statue from the movie “Amman” , which happens to be one of my all time favourite movies [Yes, enaku saami padamum pudikkum].

Her eyes seem to rage with the fury of a 1000 angry skies … kinda reminded me of the Kalighat Kali too 🙂

So put this one up.
