Tirupati Tirumala Devasthanam, the paradise on earth...

This is always been an enchanting experience to visit Tirupati Tirumala Devesthanam and as like always this time too my visit was an amazing experience. After I moved to Chennai I have made it into a regular practice to visit Lord Venkateshwara whom we call, fondly as Mr.Venky. But more I visit Tirupati, more I vow to admire the lord , the place, the management and so on. Unlike other pilgrimage TTD has never been into limelight for reasons other than its wealth and let me tell you that Tirupati Tirumala DEvasthanam is the richest in the world and Lord Venkateswara is the Richest God in the World. And while telling this or while hearing this my chest just widens full 2 inches in pride.

And not only me but everyone who visits the hill shrine just gets lost on the hospitality provided by the TTD and the management there. I don't have the official number but the number may be many thousand devotees visit the lord everyday and the management there handles the crowd so well. Not only the Darshan but also other facilities for the devotees are so well managed that one will be surprised to see the process flow there. The ample wealth the devotees offer to the Lord is well managed there unlike other shrines across the country. From Darshan tickets to the accommodation and from the Laddu Prasadam to the tonsuring everything is well managed and well in the budget of the devotees. In the place of the Lord who manages the universe there is no scarcity and the way the devotees avail the facilities is just amazing.

No need to tell that the TTD uses the advanced technology to cater to such a huge crowd across the world but the huge number on devotees ask for more advancement and more feasibility to see the Lord. Where for Sudarshan, one need to book it 3 months prior to the actual darshan day, the immediate devotee too gets a chance to get a glimpse of the beloved lord Venkateswara for few seconds standing in queues for few hours. But the well managed queue system and the refreshment amnesties makes every devotee a regular visitor to the lord for his lifetime. This is the only place wherein thousands of the devotees are well managed to see the lord and i have not found anyone complaining about anything.

I have been to many of the holy shrines like Puri jaganath Temple, Rakeswaram, Mata Vaishov devi, Shirdi Sai darbaar, but the way this place is managing the devotees is just amazing.All Credit goes to the TTD. The hill shrine maintains the entire area and the way its done is a milestone.

I may go on admiring the place on and on but you keep going.

Ek ghadi ki kahani...

यह चेन्नई मैं मेरी पहली शर्दी है ... हलाकि मैं पिछले साल भी यहीं था मगर मैं शायद इस जलवायु मैं ठीक से अपने आप को ढाल नहीं पाया था. आज कल यहाँ सुबह की नींद बड़ी मजेदार लगती है और बिस्तर छोड़ने को मन नहीं करता.पर क्या करें सुबह सुबह ऑफिस भी तो जाना है ना तो उठाना पड़ता है.हाला की मेरे ऑफिस की कार्यकालिनी समय सुबह ९ बजे से लेके शाम के ६ बजे तक है मगर मैं क्या कहूँ मुझे अपनी आप पे शर्म अति है ये कहते हुए की मैं रोज़ १०- १०.३० से पहले ऑफिस नहीं पहंच पाता था.और क्यों की मैं खुद मानव संसाधन बिभाग मैं हूँ तो मुझे बड़ा अटपटा लगता था और शर्मिंदगी भी लगती थी. खैर एक दिन मेरे अन्दर का शेर जाग गया अचानक और मुझे बोला के बेटा अब उठ जा और कुछ जुगाड़ कर. तो मैंने पिछले रविवार को ही बाज़ार गया और एक अलार्म वाली घडी लेके आया.वैसे उसकी कुछ आबस्यक्ता  नहीं थी क्यों के मेरे घर के पास वाली चर्च से हर एक घंटे मैं अलार्म बजता रहता है. मगर क्या करें कुछ करना जो था, तो मैने एक बजने वाली घडी ले आया और उसे सबसे अधिक आवाज में चालू करके सो गया.  सुबह ६ बजे जैसे ही वो बजा मैं उठ खड़ा हुआ. सुबह की शांत बातावरण मैं मु…

Odia , Odisha & its people.

After years I tried my hands in writing a letter in Odia and believe me it was difficult to write as the finger movement needed much to work on the paper to write the fonts. For your knowledge i should tell you that unlike English the letters in oriya are much complicated and need a better effort to write a good hand-writing. But let me tell you it was really tough to get something on paper,forget about the handwriting.But one thing is for sure my fingers remembered the letters so correctly that i was surprised at times when i wrote conjoint letters. It took me 20-30 minutes to write a full page letter expressing my thought at that time. I managed to get an average handwriting & one can only manage to read & understand what I wrote.

I remember my School Days when I used to speak , read & write in Odia only and read English as a subject in the class. When somebody spoke good English then, people used to admire him with great respect &considered English as a better lang…

The epic story behind Lord Jagannath...

The epic story behind the the origin of Lord Jagannath goes back to ancient days when present day Lord Jagannath was being worshiped as Nila Madhava by a tribal head called Biswabasu. The name Nilamadhaba comes from the mountain that is always covered by the dense forest making it tougher for anyone to reach.The story goes, in the state of Malwa there was a king called Indradyumna who was an ardent devotee of lord Vishnu.His utter devotion landed him to see Lod Vishnu in his manly eyes and he in his prayers pleaded the lord to give him Darhan. After long in a divine dream he was told that Lord Vishnu can be seen in his best form in the state of then Utkala. The king then send Vidyapati to find & submit a report on Lord Vishnu. Bidyapati, after a very secret research got to know about Biswabasu & the lord Nilamadhaba , but upon request he denied to show him the way to Nilamadhaba. Failing to get the way to Nilamadhaba by hook or crook Bidyapari Decided to stay there and by pla…
