Chennai Trip (Wednesday 16th - Friday 18th)

Yesterday, nothing much from my side..My neighbour wanted me to see his new farm house he is currently building near Mahabalipuram. This is about 10 km from Mahabalipuram near Thirukalukundram..There are about 10 houses..all Srilankans..They have bought lands and are building farm houses...Quite a good place..Lots of vegetation in there..The drive to Mahabalipuram via East Coast Road was too good...Surprisingly I didnt eat out yesterday!

So to cover it, had a nice podi dosai and vadai at Vasantha Bhavan today from breakfast. I got up at 2:30 am in the morning, since I couldnt sleep..For the whole week I have been waking up so early..Still not yet recovered from the jet lag! Went to the gym at 5:00 am, had breakfast in Vasantha Bhavan then went with my mother to the Maha Prathyangira Amman temple near Sholinganallur (near the VGP beach resort)..It is a very powerful amman temple and the amman has the face of Narasimha..Its in an isolated place, but somehow my mother found out and she goes every friday to this temple. I have taken some pictures and I will upload them tommorow since these sify internet guys didnt have the driver for my camera..So I need to get it from my house..
For lunch I went to Vasantha Bhavan again and had sweet corn vegetable soup, naan, masala kulcha and cauliflower manchurian (dry).Man the cauliflower manchurian is too good..its so crispy and I could hear the krick sound whenever I munched the fried cauliflower..yum yum!

It seems Atma gave me a call today, but I wasnt there..So I will speak to him today and most probably I will arrange for a mini bloggers meet tommorow..Will give u all a call to confirm..

ECR drive is a rejuvanating one when ever you want your batteries chanrged or let your fuse out and cool it out.

Maha Pratyangira Devi is indeed a powerful deity and do you know the history of this deity?

Good that you are having a nice time here.
