தொண்ணுற்று பத்து

New Word Invention

Abhinav is super good in English Listening But He likes to talk 
only in Telugu @ Home and Tamil @ School. Abhinav has Flags, Numerals, Animals Poster on our living room walls ( My house Owner don't know L). 

I asked Abhinav to read Numerals in Tamil.( randomly picked 91 as starting numeral) 

He started to rad rightly as Ninety one, Ninety Two....Ninety Nine and Ninety Ten of course in Tamil He  said as " தொண்ணுற்று பத்து". Me and Priya laughed and Praised him for not telling " I don't Know". From Yesterday onwards "நூறு" is also called as " தொண்ணுற்று பத்து". Hundred is also called as " Ninety Ten".

“Madras Eye” & Abhinav

Chennai is experiencing the Power of North East Monsoon which is “On-time” as per MET Dept. Chill weather and Breeze is creating Deep love inside about Chennai climate suddenly. All previous 6 months vengeance on Chennai  turned to soft love spontaneously. Sun is also feeling shy and don’t want to come out of the shades of Dark Clouds.

Yesterday Priya and Abhinav shown symptoms of Conjunctivitis ( Madras Eye or Pink Eye). Both Person eyes were dark pink to reddish. Priya able to sustain and slowly it just vanished to very mild. But Abhinav was not able to Tolerate pain and “frequent mucus out especially after sleep”. In Our days, we used to buy 50 paisa use & throw drop which is available at OTC (over the counter). Yesterday, we visited  child specialist just behind our home and who prescribed Antibiotics and Vitamin A. Roamed around 5 pharmacy shops to get right drops and syrup.

Doctor explained that Conjunctivitis can happen due to Allergy ( dust, Pollen…etc), Bacteria( cause Madras eye / Pink eye, Mucus forming frequently) and virus. Allergy and Virus infection can heal on its own with proper hygiene and occasional cold water cleaning of eyes with proper doctor advice. Bacterial Conjunctivitis needs Diagnosis with Antibiotics. In all cases, the Healing time would be from 1 day to 4 days.

Total spending for Doctor consulting and Pharmacy bill is Rs 300. Amazing we were done with 50 paisa. In Future, say in another decade, it may raise to Rs 5000. J J J

Short Kanchi Trip

Kanchipuram is Full of Temples and has great history with fabulous Stone Marvels. There are many but few are "Must See" Category. But We had a chance to see only three Temples ( 1,4 and 5 in below list) last Saturday due to our delayed start. We planned to see one more time with all Temples coverage. We are blessed in a way because we have seen 4 Divya Desam on Purattasi Saturday.

Temple Maps Link here.

1. Sri Ekambareswara Temple

The most famous Siva temple at Kanchi is the Ekambareswara temple. The dimensions of this temple are reflected in its 20 - acre spread and its tall south gopuram which soars to a height of 58.5m. 2500 years old Mango tree is Stala Viruksham which is still worshipped.

Most of the Places, we see sepertae Shrine for Shiva and Parvathi. But here we see together in a single shrine. Also, the Shape of Lord Shiva is completely different from Other Shiva Temples. Siva linga said to be done and worshipped by Paravathi.

Sri Ekambareswara Temple
This modern panel tells the story of the sacred site on which the temple was built. In the picture, Kamakshi clings to the "earth linga" as the river Ganges threatens but fails to wash it away during a flood. Kamakshi, which means "Wanton-eyed," is one of the names of Parvati, the consort of Shiva. The linga is of course Shiva's emblem, and Ganges is the Milky Way, the starry river that flows through Shiva's hair on her way to water the Earth.

Shiva overlooks the scene from his home in the Himalayas. To the right is the mango tree under which Shiva and Kamakshi were married. It houses various animals: a salamander climbing the trunk, a snake above, a peacock (small and hard to see) perching on the lower left branch, a squirrel above the peacock, a monkey above the snake. The temple is pictured in elevation to the right of the tree, while Ganges flows from the mountains down the left side of the photo and around underneath Kamakshi's feet. The earth linga and mango tree pictured here are actual physical objects, around which the legend has grown. The linga is installed in the temple's main shrine, while a courtyard inside the temple encloses the mango.

2. Sri Kailasanatha Temple
Kailasanathar Temple
Kailasnathar Temple is built by the Pallava Dynasty during the first quarter of the eighth century. The temple is built of red sandstone and has innumerable carvings of Pallva art, of which the Urdhva Thandava dance of  Siva and the laughing face of Parvathi are worth seeing. The architechture of this temple resembles the shore temple at Mamallapuram

3. Sri Varadharaja Perumal Temple
Varadharaja Perumal Temple
The centre of attraction in Vishnu Kanchi is the temple of varadarajaswamy situated on the top of Hastigiri or Elephant Hill.The Vijayanagar kings constructed this temple. The whole temple covers an area of about 23 acres. The sculptural beauty of the pillars is amazing. Ornamental rings carved out of single stone at the Four Corners of the mandapam in the form of a chain are a delightful spectacle

4. Sri Kamakshiamman Temple

Kanchi is sacred as one of the three Sakti peethas of India. Kamakshi is said to be the Supergoddess, Parasakti, having Saraswati, Lakshmi and Parvati as her eyes. She blesses all that dedicate themselves to her. The sanctum sanctorum faces southeast in the centre of Gayatri Mandapam. The tradition says that there was a delightful grove of Champaka trees around the main temple now known as Gayatri Mandaparn.

Dont Miss to see Aruba Lakshmi and Soundarya Lakshmi inside Gayatri Mandapam on both sides of Kamakshiamman. Also the Pillar where Dasarathan worshipped and got blessings for child birth; it is said to be Eyes/Back part of Goddess Sati Devi fallen here. 

5. Sri Ulagalandhar Temple

This vaishnava Temple was bulit in chola period .The main deity of this temple is 35 feet high and 24 feet wide posing with one foot on earth and the other on the sky. This form is called Trivikrama.This temple is one of the 108 Divya Desam's of Lord Vishnu

It is the Only One temple out of 108 divya desam which has 4 diva Desam in a single temple.

6. Sri Vijayaraghava Perumal Temple
This temple of Vijayaraghava Perumal is one of the 108 Divyadesams where Lord Rama is said to have performed the funeral rites for Jatayu, the giant bird which valiantly fought to prevent Ravana from abducting Sita, the wife of Lord Rama to Lanka.

7. Sri Vaikunda Perumal Temple
This temple is built by The Pallava ruler, Nandivarman in the seventh century AD.Sri Vaikunda Perumal temple is famous for its architecture. The Lord is in the sitting posture. The Goddess is known as Sri Vaikunthavalli Tayar. It has great sculptures and inscription which speak of its history and the history of the city itself. Its inner walls are decorated with lion shaped pillars.

And Many More.

Anybody Know Fish Kinger?

Last weekend, My Family along with Brother in Law Family (  to refine better - My Wife sister's Family ) paid a visit to Guindy Children Park. Actual Plan was to go Kanchipuram Temple Visit; But due to necessity of Tatkal booking, Plan B is executed.

Dyslexia Words

Abhinav and his friends has a habit of reading reverse. if you ask him to point 31, he points to 13. if you ask him to read  the word CAT, he read as TAC. It happens say 20% of the time. Most of the Parents think that it may be Dyslexia. But it is not. If Reversal reading and writing happens most of the times, then better consult with Doctor. Also take feedback from Class teacher which will solidify it. Since Kids will develop their Motor Skills, Eye hand coordination skills....etc. in course of time, during that stage, it often happens. But parents should be vigilant enough to monitor it.

Spoon Bill
Ohh...I deviated from my topic and started writing about Medical stuff which i don't know  much. In Guindy Park, Abhinav Spotted " Spoon Bill catching the Fish for her breakfast" and started to tell its name as " hmmmmmm....suddenly   Fish Kinger !!!". 

He pushed his brain to work hard to get the name he remembers...But It is unfortunate that he got name wrongly. But Oxford should be happy enough to file " another new word in english i.e Fish Kinger".

King fisher becomes Fish Kinger !!!

Why We are not falling off from earth?

Abhinav Teacher taught about Volcano, Earth...etc in his Class. Me and Priya Explaining more about volcano. Below is the Conversation.

Me:              If you dig earth, you will get water…then you will get Petrol/diesel ( Crude is little complex term now), Gas ….Some places it comes out naturally and it becomes volcano.

Abhinav:      What happens, If you dig more?
Me:              You will get to Center of Earth, where everything is Super hot.
Abhinav:      What happens, If you dig more?

Me:              With Little frustration, You will end up in America;
Abhinav:      If we are standing on top of earth, why we are not falling?

Why We are not falling off from earth?
Priya:           It is due to Earth Gravity. ( Conveyed as Magnetic Power for easy understanding)
Me:              I replied him that “ At you age, I don’t even know A,B,C….; because I was taught A,B,C…during my 3rd Standard only”

( thinking of Buying Big Encyclopedia; presently we have small. also The Hindu Speaks On Scientific Facts Book)

Cost Cutting by Companies

I cant stop writing about the circular received from my Employer. Most of  India Based Traditional engineering Companies and Manufacturing Industries used to Subsidize Lunch and Hot Beverages such as Tea & Coffee. Even My Employer did almost similar as its peer level.

Lunch was Subsidized and charged to each employee of Rs 5 Whereas Tea & Coffee  Subsidized but with Nil Charges to Employee. Remaining Money will be paid by employer to Canteen Contractor.  

Cost Cutting

Yesterday circular reveals that " Employee has to bear Rs 10 Towards Meal, Re 1 Towards Each cup of Coffee/ Tea". Really shocking that " Tea & Coffee are chargeable though it is just 100 Paisa". 

In My Payslip, there will be many outgo. Term Insurance, Health Insurance, Food, Tea& Coffee are the few Outgo which Employee gets as benefits during Joining, Now it is on deductible way.

In Two/three decades, i am foreseeing Water will be Heavily chargeable Item. It will be Biggest outgo than Tax....Refer Below Picture ( Courtesy: MoneyAisle TV) though it is little Outdated & $ terms. Companies are bearing the cost of Water; Will it in Future !!!

True Cost of Water
