3 - Thanksgiving

20 Posts , 14 comments and 33 Profile Views and 150 Visits @ Clustrmaps in 80 Odd days.That's not bad.Given that i don't write often;i don't write very hi fundoo blog am happy with the response what i got over the period.

So,What made me to activate my blogger account and write here?

The two guys who inspired me to write , KVijesh and Chandrachoodan.Vijesh,a college mate of mine and CG known for his ChennaiPhotoWalk.Definitely these two blogs were different on its own and will always have a special place in my blogger space.

Another thing to be noted,I picked yet another passion from these two people,Photography.

The real urge to get myself a digital camera happened after i came across Rahul Sadagopan.I paid 18K for my Nikon P80 after visiting Rahul's Photostream.Good that i have a SLR-like-Camera now.

All together these three people have made an impact on me.Many thanks to all three of you:)

Nikon CoolPix P80 is mine :)

Update : P80 is making me mad! Still on a learning curve and this helps me a lot in getting the basics right.

I will be moving from Picassa to Flickr

The KPN was as fast as the auto and it dropped me at Tirupur around 6AM ,Saturday morning.Before i could reach my home i got a call from my parents that few of my relatives had arrived prior to me.I reached my home and after an hour my aunt said how about a trip to Koduveri?After a tiring 8hours journey i really really wanted to sleep but they took me to this place on compulsion.It was good that i went else i would have soaked in sweat at my home as my home experienced a indefiniter power failure.Thanks to Mr.Arcot Veeraswamy.

I never knew about this place before.The Kodiveri dam is located 10 kms from Gobichettipalayam.This place was not that great but definitely enough for one who is in need of a real quick break from his work stress.For the first time in my life i travelled by Parisal,the spherical shaped small boat to cross the water stretch.After a small walk a sight of relief.You can see a small waterfalls but its wide enough to accomodate more people than a five falls in koutralam.Its Always fun to get soaked in falls when the mercury is high.A lot of road side shop sells fish fry and i found this fish fry less expensive and more tasty than the ones i had in marina.I was informed by one of the local people that this place was shot in the movie,Chinnathambi starring Prabhu and Kushboo.

Unfortunately my W610i was too weak to capture the panaromic view of the falls.I have to get a better Camera soon-:(

The picture displayed above was shot while returning from Koduveri and has nothing to do with the dam or falls.I just want to post at least one picture and i did that,coz its my blog-:)

I Recommend this place for Singles,Bike Travellers.

Not much options to eat other than Fish fry.Definitely not much to see in this place,would be good for a day including to and fro travel.

Oram po - part ii

The day was October 3,2008,Friday.My Clock reads 17:30 IST. Just done with my packing,of course the dirty clothes and my two sets of new dresses which am gonna wear for the function.As usual waiting for a girl is pain,no matter whether she s your lover or friend or mom or sister.This time i was kept waited by my better half , the dentist.

I have booked the tickets in advance(to Tirupur) so as to avoid the last minute hassels.The usual shuttle which runs between adayar and CMBT was cancelled.So we were looking for an auto to ferry us.Negotiating with auto drivers is always a skill which i rate as significant as flirting with a girl(boy).I dont have that skill,my better half is better than me in this aspect.Finally we got one auto to CMBT by 18:15.Our bus was scheduled to depart by 21:30.Even if we opted for a Chennai Metro bus service we would have reached in time,but as usual lazyness and the Software Engineer within me prevented us from taking the Metro.

This auto driver was very soft spoken,in his early twenties.But the auto was in a real bad condition,this vehicle has lost its indicator to some accident,a lot of dent in the body.I thought this junk yard vehicle is never gonna cross twenty miles per hour and i m not supposed to have any fun on my transit to CMBT. I was proved wrong and i admit that Appearance is deceptive.

Things went usual till Vadapalani Signal.One more Auto just stopped near our auto.Both drivers winked at each other and greeted.This is not a uncommon behaviour between two auto drivers,ofcourse they belong to the same breed.Both the drivers made some quick exchanges with their palms.Only God knows wat those signs meant.Later i realized that it was a signal for the heart throbbing race.

When the signal turned green both auto drivers show cased their driving skills.It was more like a Need for Speed-Auto to me.The race lasted just two minutes till the next signal,but the twist and the high speed turns i experienced during those two minutes was fascinating.Arti thought that she's never gonna make it for the function and started praying all the God's she can remember-:)

Eventually our auto won the unofficial race and the winning driver was given some money by the other one.This happened in a real quick fashion that nobody can notice wats happening.At the next signal the auto's diverged in different directions.Our driver just turned back and gave a guys-Still-Alive-look?He explained later that there is a separate pool of auto drivers who drive auto just for these races.Usually these races are schedule in the early morning ,around 4-6 AM.The Race length is usually a straight 1km-2km Stretch.These were the official races and they play for money.The Bet amount can vary from 1000-15000 max.

The one we experienced was an unofficial race and he said something which relates to AeroDynamics.I cannot believe that an Auto Driver can think of Aero Dynamics.His little brother was working in a mechanic shop and he used to modify the Auto for his elder brother.

No Pit Lanes,No Safety Cars,No Defined Circuit,No Crew but still a race happened and i m lucky enough to experience one.
