We went to Kanchipuram

Vasu and Rajalakshmi came to our house from Hyderabad on 3rd Feb 2015. After a visit to temples around Kumbakonam (Navagruga koils) they came to Chennai on 8th Feb. Vasu suggested we go to Kanchipuram; we gladly agreed and we two with them left house at 7AM on Monday the 9th Feb for Kanchipuram.

We took Arun's car. First we stopped at Vedal where a museum is opened apart from the huge Shiva statue. After this, we proceeded to Kanchi, and had our breakfast at Sri Rama's Cafe. Then to Sri Kamakshi Amman Koil, Kumarakottam Koil, Sri Ekambareswarar Koil.

Then at 12 noon we went to Sri Sankara Mutt. Sri Sankarachariyar was to give darshan by 1PM, so we waited. We had the darshan of Sankarachariyar and then left for Lunch at Sri Rama's Cafe.

After lunch we went to Vijaya's friend Kalpana's house at East Raja Veedhi. We rested there for an hour chatting with Mr. Nithyanandam and Mrs. Kalpana. Very sociable persons.

Then at 4-15PM we went to Orirukkai where a beautiful Mani Ma…

Microsoft Mobile Lumia 535.

I had a Samsung mobile phone model GT-5330 but when Microsoft announced that they are bringing out a Microsoft phone I waited for its launch and purchased it on 13th December 2014.

Microsoft Lumia 535, Rs. 9200.00. A 5" phone. I liked it very much. Unfortunately, on 4th Feb 2015, I LOST it while boarding the train at Secunderabad station. The phone was with me for hardly 50 days !!

A true loss.

The train reached Secunderabad 3 hours late. Satyamurthy received us and took us home in a taxi. Rama's house is large and good. (Srikanth is the owner). Sridhar and Abhilash had already come.
