Living by the side of Snake park, its Exciting

Early morning 8 am I woke up relaxed washed my face, took my Colgate brush in hand applied some Pepsodent paste in it. As usual while cleaning my teeth I went around the back yard to see how the garden is and get some fresh air. Yes I live in Sub-Urban Chennai but still my parents managed to have some respectable open land where some 8 trees and many plants smile :) Looking at the dump yard or the land owned by some software engineer in US my memories flashed backwards...

Living close to pond coming across different species of fish during raining season is normal. And also coming across the distant cousin and friends of fish like turtle, snake is also common. When water over flows the capacity of pond our streets will be flooded, these guys would be pulled along with water current where they will find new home and settle down.

This freaking Green card holder who bought the land is not building any thing on it neither maintaining it. With all the lands raised with brick and cement even road raised above it obviously un-maintained land is now a dump yard and at rainy days its mini pond. This is a real breed ground for creatures abandoned by main pond(periya eri).

The guy starring in this photo is not real
Among creature pulled by flood Snakes are so gifted they can stay in land comfortably and also they get high protein meal like mice and his cousins particularly when the stay is in residential area. What else eat the rodent live in its place :) wonderful warm hole half a ft below ground.

What these things gotta do with my garden? come on can't you think all these happen in open ground next to my home which is just separated from my place by a weak fence. Inside we have given enough space for them to explore and enjoy tree climbing they can climb you know!!! not just trees also walls.

I enjoy playing cricket with him.... cricket with who?? yeah snake... long back I was using this 'boost' ball to play cricket inside home at rainy days, obviously their high time! I played a simple left hand stylish straight drive the yellow fur ball bounced and went outside. I just ran behind it, that ball stopped from 20 kmph to 0 in a moment I wondered and took the ball in hand, it had a tail. Ball had a what? tail.... no its snake it thought the bouncing thing to be his 'bounty' frog :D

Another day we played hide n seek it was dark evening, I didn't notice that he saw me and came to catch I stepped over him, short tempered idiot bit me in my foot and ran away. That was the last time I played with him our relationship got completely broken when helped silly humans to kill his 3rd brother :( Now he is not willing to talk to me but still we'd see each others often. More that he get spotted by other humans he might be killed soon :(

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…
