The Roads Never End

November 4, 2007

CATs and subsequently the semester just got done yesterday. Yay! The exams are still left, but what the hell. One needs some celebration. And one thought that one would drown in sleep and have very late morning today. But, nope. One was rudely shaken awake at 0630 and told that one was to accompany the family on a visit to a temple, couple of hours away. So, figuring one would rather be outside in fantastic weather than stay home moping around online, one left.

And one is extremely glad! One drove all the way to place called Chettipunyam, about three kilometers away from Chengalpet to this Hayagreevar temple. It’s a small temple without too many flairs. A small path through an inner chamber leads to the sanctum. What was most curious was that on the walls of this inner chamber, one found various messages scribbled. Names of students with their exam register numbers, notes of people wanting to become doctors or engineers or architects – little, written prayers of people. Faith, I tell you. ๐Ÿ™‚

And the drive was so beautiful. We drove through Mahindra City and what a place it is! One saw acres and acres of empty green land and backwaters, all through the dreamy haze of a slight drizzle. And in stark contrast, high-rise industrial complexes and SEZs. Sitting back in the car, hair being swept back by cold wind and rain, one realized that this was a most beautiful thing in one’s life.
