Ways I played Hide n Seek

Even though TNEB power cut slot for my locality is 10:00 to 12:00 they used to cut it when they feel stressed that people in home are under fan easing, not working. I want to tell them one thing strong and clear even people with work can sit in hot sun but without any work you can't even sit for a second without Fan or A/C whichever suits the consumers pocket. So during this unannounced power cuts at evening I just walk out of home to ease myself and to see how others are toiling ;)

I found small kids playing Hide n Seek, oh yeah summer vacation is here now. Leaning on the gate I quickly traveled time to reach my childhood where I played this wonderful game with excellent skill set. We have played this game in many formats, 3 were popular in my past. First old fashioned, even now everyone plays this way puts the head against a wall or lamp post counts and catches the players. The catcher has to tap the wall to announce a player is caught and same way any player has to tap the wall to declare the end of game and the catcher has to start the counting all over again.

The next format is advanced version of previous one were catchers will be given more edge. If a player taps the wall and still if there are some more to be found then they will be still in game. Eg. A, B, C, D, E, F plays the game and  A, the catcher catches B,C and then D taps the wall, then B,C,D are safe but E & F can still be caught.

The last format that is most loved by me and my best co-player Dinesh is a showmanship format, very much a catcher supportive format. The catcher counts and start to play as usual but he/she can spot and catch any player just by announcing that they are spotted n caught no need to run towards the wall or post. Making it more tough for players, they have to tap the back of catcher to bring the game to end.

Right from my childhood I'm fascinated and attracted towards climbing obvious we know our ancestors ;) Myself and Dinesh skilled among anyone in the game we almost rule the game, we decide who is going to be the catcher of next game and how many games will the current catcher be fooled and made catcher again and again. The latest format has tough chances for ruling its pretty much impossible to do but we had strategies. The most effective strategy is "Play Bait" one of us will intentionally appear before them so that other can easily tap and bring the game to halt.

Sweet memories, just like in every locality we have our 'unqualified' players under cut off age whom often runs to home to complain about their 'dummy player' role. Even some sweet players like elder sisters whom we love to have in game just in case to handle the pressure caused by 'unqualified' players in our case its my sis Selvi :) for their sweetness we the big boys who control the game never let them get caught. Even if they get caught we scarifies ourselves showing the bravery of Manhood :) sometimes for quick countdown we count from 1 to 10 for 10 times to complete 100 quickly try it... it really works :)

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 …

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…

Puththu kovilum Putho tilesum, as they are built

Its grand Aadi season here in Tamil Nadu wherever you  go you'd be followed by awful music from no mercy speakers. Yes this is the first post dedicated for it. Hindu is not a religion but it's idealism,  a way to unite people, that's perfectly constructed by assuming separate task to every God, no single God worship. Hindus moved from nature worship to idol worship, but that doesn't mean that we don't have nature worship we have created a idol for them and countinued to worship them in different form.

Snake is a beautiful reptile, I have made friend with few too... (got time? search my blog to know what I mean). Our ancestor found the nature law, 'every living creature on earth is important for the ecosystem to be balance'. Maybe to make sure snakes are not killed fearing their venom they made them as God too! Not just idol snakes, they are worshiped as they are at their conquered(from rats and termite)nest or puthu.

Lets not concentrate if snake drinks milk …
