    Just returned from the inagural rituals of the new Shiva temple At Alampoondi(native place of my grand father,late Sampoorna sastriar).
    Must admit that the place has a mesmerising effect on me, since this is my very first vist to the village.

    It goes without saying that I enjoyed myself throughly when I was there.Look forward to taking my children and wife along the next time around.

      dear Mr.Ravi, If you visit the Siva Temple now, you will feel very happy and elated as we have erected Compound all around, installed Sri Anjaneya, Sri Kaali, and presently we are erecting a Kalyana Mandapam in front of A/M.Mangalaambigai Sannathi for the benefit of devotees to celebrate marriages, etc. Also we are raising funds for all these activities. You may contact me on 09840073718 for more info. V.Dhandapany.

      ALLAPOONDI is situated at 10 Km from Gengee on the main road to Thiruvannamalai. it now comes under gengee district after bifurcation of villupuram .my forefathers belong to that village. i had great feeling when ever i visited the village. i felt so homely. i even spent some time in the house where once my grand father lived. we have performed pooja and abhishegam at the ganapathy temple, dhroupathy amman temple.

      i am so happy tto notice so many people longing to get in touch with each other.i know one Mr. Krishnamoorthy, who live in Alwarthirunagar, chennai., who is my cousin chitappa and i am proud and privilaged to have met him. .i have also heard that one belonging to allampoondi has a silk shop in north mada street, mylapore tank and i could not recollect his name. My mother had spoken to him and his children.

      my email ID is wish and pray that we all can meet. and get touch with each other. let us not miss this oppertunity.
      thanks for the person who has taken this initiative. god bless him

      with lot of love to you all

Blasts from the Past

... because the idiocy of manliness is an evergreen topic.


... because Canada and the US will celebrate their Thanksgiving holidays and, regrettably and preventably, not 1-cook-in-10 will serve a decent turkey.


... because everyday is Mother's Day.


... because the American Dream seems but a distant memory, given the country's dominant ethos of small-mindedness.


... to remind us that not every mix of Tibetans and Western spiritual seekers has to be nauseating.


... to celebrate the new edition of Infinite Vision published in India.


... reprised because military strategy seems more cruel and less effective than ever -- and certainly there is a better way.


... because cars are ruining Pondicherry, where I live. How badly are they fucking up your Indian town?


... reprinted because more-and-more people seem want to understand the gift economy. (Yeah!)
