Rain drop that travels up

With the monsoon being set, last weekend we had much of rain fall. That called up our cricket match in CPC tournament @ Porur and hence had time to spend the weekend with family. Sunday early morning started from Chennai to Pondy yiee!  c’mon guys in and around of Pondicherry has temples too not just liquor shops, since its a family outing….. we visited 4 temple. First to Panchavadi Hanuman temple, then to a Saneeswarar temple then to Prathyangara temple close to it. After a fair breakfast we went to Manakula vinayagar temple.
Yes I heard you *enough* where does the rain drop travel upside? I’m gonna answers you, can’t you be patience & give this family man a chance to explain Pondy has good places to visit diving back… we had rain greeting us with mild showers and lovely drizzle it was nice pleasant drive. On the way we stopped I got down and relaxed found a nice white flower blooming from the shrub with its horn(old-days-speaker) like shape catching all the rain drops and holding them like cup.
To get the image of the flower I’m referring I tried googling like “White cone like flower” then “White cone like flower in Tamil Nadu” and then “White flower that grows in shrub” and finally got the image, which you can see now to the right. And now I’m seriously scared coz this wiki page on Brugmansia is describing that any part of it is venomous that day I plucked it without spilling water and presented it to my wife *Romeo* now I feel itchy.

On the way back to Chennai we visited Sri Aurobindo Ashram then to Auroville where we saw that golden globe called ‘Matrimandir’ peeping through gate back to ECR. Lost totally lost! the rain drops! sitting in the front seat hardly helping myself from sleeping I dozed often. When the rain showered hard it was irritating, slowly it went off then came back again as drizzle, what a sight the small drops landing on the windshield of Suzuki Estilo started to travel up I was like *wht* for clear view driver splashed some soap water and cleaned it, single wiper zoomed from my seat to drivers seat clearing view of driver and partially helping mine.
It was the aerodynamic design of Estilo’s windshield that made it possible. The windshield is so tilted that the drops traveled from as low as bonnet to top of car with speedy wind hurrying it away from car. I was like wow wow I want to observe this all day then it happen agian.
Particularly when driver splashed water and cleaned, water droplets in my view screamed to top, its an awesome sight. I’m not sure if that is a problem for driver but I enjoy the show. I was like as it is raining upside down and dancing to the tune of car engine. Its after a long time that I’m appreciating or getting excited about simple stuff, had any lately? please share them in comments.

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…
