I have always been inclined towards the spiritual and cultural heritage of Tamilnadu and the great and magnificent temple architecture and I don't miss any opportunity to satisfy my desire to visit them at any cost.
This time of the year its time for us to hire fresh pass-outs for our training program. Justin as a manager has always been in the front runner to visit campuses for this. But I as always push for walk-in drives to close the requirement and yes I have always been able to close them well within the timeline. But i dont deny for campus drive and even participate in them. This time he planned for KIOT, Salem and wanted me to lead it. I agreed and checked with the tech panel and Rex as assessment manager. Aravindan agreed to come with me but Rex had a different plan. He said we have the drive on friday after which lets go for Srirangam in trichy and then rockfort and other nearby places. It was little awkward but I agreed as i had a long pending plan for Srirangam.
It was a bright sunny day and as planned the drive went well and most importantly Aravindan was very happy and what else is needed I was pleased. We returned hotel and took rest. Next morning we got a bus from Salem and headed to trichy. Morning 10.30 we reached and we had to take a local bus to go to Srirangam. The moment we got down in front of the Huge temple I was speechless to witness the aboundancy and the great piece of architectural heritage. I was lost in the beauty of the temple and the nearer we went the more I was anxious and curious to know how people would have built this. The elegant gopurams and the main Gates of the temple were amazing to feel. You feel you are very small in size campared to the huge structures but the moment you enter the innermost chamber there he is on the sheshnag on his favorite ananta shayanam posture relaxing. What a beauty watching him when you have so much to discuss,ask, complaint but the moment I saw him my mind was blank and I was lost in his Darshnam... Only his eternal name yedukondala....srinivasa...venkateswara...Govinda...came to mind and that's it.
