What we can eat at food fest when there is really no food

Just a week ago we had a food fest at my organization. On the same day my team had an important work to do which got us late to food fest. Since we were late we made it further late by utilizing some more time to find where/ whether to eat but we have already bought the tokens so we have to eat.

Straight we went inside the cafeteria to find the stalls overflowing with Crowd!! (wonder what) yes I work in a corporate and never bother to call my colleagues as crowd. Neither there was queue to get nor there was a exit to help yourself bring your plate full. The best way is to eat it there and push others to get out and yes its no brainer its just plain truth.

At last we managed to the front row of counter(row!! yes if there is no queue then its got to be row!!). The most awaited surprise was waiting there it will be good  if I give the typical conversation.

Me: Anna! Dhahi Kachori! 2 here are the token
Server1: Onnu thaan iruku(Translation: Just a plate left)
Me: Ok! Anna! ! Channa Samosa!1! token!
Server2: Nahi! Nahi!(Its over)
(I was late for Dhahi Kachori! too late for Channa Samosa)
Supervisor: Sir, you can exchange this with Bhel Poori!
(I peeped into the counter to find all ingredient of Bhel poori scattered all over table, may be they are planning to serve it to me!!)
Me:I'll try to Exchange!!

With sad face I walked towards my table I was not ready to face my friends who are waiting for some feast. I heard a faint voice, Shiva! turned around to find lucky colleagues from other teams with their plates in front of them. I walked close to find they had just a spoon or two of what they had. :) Neither they were lucky, they were in total confusion that how Channa Samosa and Bhel Poori is similar in taste also Pani poori was having curd topping and Dhahi Kochori with hot pani!!

At last we had fruit salad in exchange! I was neither fast to salad but believe me I dare not to peep into counter!! Ended the feast with IceCream or is it IceJuice.

I have also organized / volunteered for food department on some occasion/ fest being an organizer we will have time only to eat last, and eat what is left. I wonder what organizer of this Food fest had! may be paper cups!!

Up and Close with Sudalai Madan: The Encounter

Night of 13th April all the preparations for the rituals were done in the temple, Sudalaimadam swamies idol was decorated with flowers and fruits and coconuts dedicated to the lord reached above his chest.My cousin Sudalai muthu, senior priest of the shrine reached home by late night got blessings of his father Late Shanmugam Sundaram and blessed the family members in 8x10 room dedicated for God, then started towards the temple. There peoples in huge number were waiting for the Sudalaimada swamy's arrival. Different rituals were offered by people to the Lord in order to get the blessings. As its is believed Sudaimada swamy, son Lord Siva used to consume meat in Kailash for this reason he is sent to earth were he can satisfy his earthy hunger there by not polluting Kailash.



Offering meat to Sudalaimadan is the most important and an watchful event in the festival. Many devotees offer their goat & pig so as to please the lord and get his blessings. That midnight Sudalaimada swamy …

Training @ Cognizant

I received my Date of Joining mail on 16 Oct 2011, I was so happy that finally I got that. I was the only one from my college to get the mail to report on that particular day so I went pretty much alone. I reported in MEPZ on Oct 20th from the next Monday my training began in Siruseri. I was able to spot many people who studied with me in school on the first day of Induction.
Initially I was placed in customized batch then was moved to Advance JAVA or J2EE in a generic term. I got pinned to IME vertical that handles clients related to Information, Media and Entertainment domain.We were trained in batches of 24, curse or charm I got into a batch with 20 girls! Whatever it didn't last for long, I was pretty much comfortable after getting out of it. My school was co-ed but classes were separate for boys and girls never mind 8th and 12th grades, where I was put into co-ed classes because I'm a good boy :P In college I remember studying together with girls nope remember seeing girls…

why do people sweat more in chennai???

One of the famous ornament of chennai is its summer!. Everyone here would have at least once talked about its effect and the way they affected. People comes out with sweats flowing from the body is the usual scene of chennai noon. The sweat produced is not just due to the temperature of the region. It is in fact due to the high humidity of chennai.

To explain this lets see a fact, people in chennai sweats more than the people in delhi where the temperature is higher than the former.

This is because of chennai's location. Chennai is located near sea due to which sea water evaporation is high during summer which in turn increases the humidity (Amount of water vapour present in air).
Normally human blood temperature is about 35 deg Celsius. If the outside temperature is more than that, then our system tries to automatically cools down by releasing sweat from the body.

The sweat which is released cools the surrounding heat by converting into vapour thereby reducing the body temperature…
