Where to Park when charges soars



Hi Chennai, I hope you completely understand the title. Last weekend went for a movie, at Escape, EA, Chennai. Its not the first time I visit EA and so I know where to park? but do you know?


Cool ah! parked bike in Spencer, which happens to be a shopping mall when I was schooling, now godown and office complex. Given the parking rate at EA I recommend every Chennaite to follow this parking method religiously till EA brings down fare also there is another building adjacent to Spencer offering paid parking service at reasonable rate. Also you can park at Sathyam cinemas complex, charge is lower than Spencer but riskier.




Similarly there is another place where you’d cry on seeing the parking receipt Phoenix Market City, Velacherry, Chennai thats the only place which made me wished that I had a car(no no parking rate are no lower but reasonable). This place is quite a non sense coz there is no such places around to park like we can for EA now I’ll list what I have tried before.  Safest: Park bike at Spencer’s approx. 1Km from Phoenix mall towards east. Tempting: Park at banks around the mall like SBI or ICICI(google you can find where its). Don’t: Parking in open ground 100m west of Phoenix entrance, the place already looks like a auto garage, you do want your engine to travel back so don’t risk.


Other malls I have been to have good public transport facility aligned or with reasonable parking charge. Are you expecting that mall which is near your home which is charging you high to start in the where to park? ok then list it down in the comment we’d try to visit that and analyse the custom & culture there WE is a strong word rit… none of them is digestible anyway *middle class mind*

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…
