Another weekend ……

Thiruvannamalai Temple ( photo taken by me using Canon S100 digital camera on 27Feb2005 ) Posted by Hello

It was almost the repeat of the last weekend.

Friday night ,went with friends for the movie “Constantine”(this time English version) thinking it to be some horror movie or related stuff…but ended up seeing a comedy movie 🙂

Saturday, wrote a blog about my confusions and my past, with the title “What is right & what is wrong” and published it…and got a comment from Vijay. As I guessed, he got confused with contradictions of the though placed in that….and then I removed it …again confusion whether I should post something like that or not… Let me defer that for the time being….

ok.ok..Let me come to Sunday:

Mani,Somu,Selva and i went to Thiruvannamalai ( first time I am going there )…Krish is becoming Bhakthimaan.!!!
Not exactly like that..i like visting new places.. 🙂 .Also it is the fourth place in the list of five :
Kalahasti,Kanchipuram,Chidambaram,Thiruvannamalai and then ……. ( can anyone anwer it??).Yet to visit the final one.

Started from the Koyembedu Bus Tesrminus at six am. Bus terminus is just 5 minute walk from our house 🙂 and it’s very convienient for planning any trip around Chennai. Had a good time there.

Finally,I want your comment on this following situation : ( Please note: I am not trying to say, something is right or wrong)
When we were going around the temple, our autowala, showed 5 peaks in the temple called pachalinga. When we were seeing that, a boy aged around 7, came near us. I assumed, he should be living in one of the huts nearby. He said, we can spot the panchalinga from the one spot which was just 10 feet from us . My friends went with him. But, I didn’t go. What do you think, is the reason behind the boy doing this help ?

Have a nice day and a great week ahead!!!

Update 1: As no one seem to have knowledge/interest in te first qn.. I’ll answer it myself:
* The fifth place in Thiruvanaikkaval near Trichy, where Lord Siva represents the Element Earth. Yet to visit that temple.
* Sky -Nataraja at Chidambaram, Earth – Yegambaranathar at Kachipuram, Fire – Thiruvannamalai, Air – Kalahasti

One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree.” Which road do I take?” she asked.” Where do you want to go?” was his response. “I don’t know”, Alice answered. “Then”, said the cat, “it doesn’t matter.”

    >Hmm,so u had a great time:) i will comeback to see what others have to say abt the little comments! ! i am reserving them for later

  • Prasad

    >I can think of only 2 possibilities..
    one, the boy would be doing this for his living… by showing that to ppl and getting something from them..
    two, he might be really genuine in showing ppl what he sees everyday, so that the whole world can see that…
    what do u think?

  • Kishna

    cool pitcure dude… was that a photo taken by you….??
    hmmm…abt the boy….I double what Prasad thinks… I also think the thought that prasad thought when U asked him to think… hee hee…

  • Mithuna


    Thiruvanamalai is a great place. What is the reason behind going to all temples? I didn’t read your post during the weekend, but hope you are clearing the confusions.

    Then when I read your question, after reading kish’s comment I was confused.

    I think the boy is doing this for his living, have some other thoughts, but I will also reserve it.

    Take care

  • Krish

    >Neels, Thanks !! I believe u should have guessed it.


    Thanks Prasad.. I am not sure you are thinking of all the possiblities since I asked u to answer it 🙂

    Kishna, thanks..The picture was taken by me…

    G..Visiting the temples just like that..even I don’t pray for anything..believe me…also, read the update 1.

    Coming to the question i asked : The answer is ..the boy was doing this for his living.

    But, my problem is, how can we assume his intentions before taking his casual help ! I bet, my friend didn’t even think anything fishy about his help… but, my experience and intuition stopped me from taking his help. I was watching them, wishing his help to be casual one……nope…If I have taken his help, and don’t pay him it hurts me, same way, if i help him, am i doing the right thing??

    Why does, small things such as this affects me? Why I am not able to be like others…normal human beings.. 🙂

    What do you think guys ?

  • Sangeeta

    >Hey go to’s the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen..Besides I loved the fact that I was able to see another country from the coast..Lanka..i.e
    And if u do decid to go there, post lots of pics. The last time I went there, I had forgotten my camera..

  • Krish

    >Hi Sangeeta,

    Yet to visit Rameshwaram..( how bad 🙁 )…. I have to go there as well… sure i’ll post the pics 🙂

  • vj

    “As I guessed, he got confused with contradictions of the though placed in that”
    I was not confused da !. I just felt you were contradictory . Now I hope you also felt the same contradictions. neways nvm.

    Ah..I really envy you guys. You ppl are actually doing what I always wished to do but never did once. Am speaking about visiting temples. Way to go dude. ! Btw, the pic is really good !

    And now coming to your question “Main Aisa Kyon Hoon ?”. Lemme tell it once again . You are just a normal being in this abnormal world !

    “my experience and intuition stopped me from taking his help.”
    I suppose here your intuitions were influence by your past EXPERIENCES ! If something negative happend before, come on ..
    shed that behind and begin fresh.

  • Krish

    >Thanks Vijay…

    I am changing…but very slowly…Let me does it go..

    What’ll u do in this sort of situations ?
    I am just curious what’s in others mind…

  • Akruti

    >Hmm,good,i guessed it right.Krish,in a smal l world filled with ahtred,selfishness and jealousy we r always taught to be alert,never trust strangers and all.But then life wouldn be beautiful without trust,imagine a small kid earning on his own.what would i do if i were in his position,i wouldn take help,i would have earned the money,hats off to the kid,he knows the secrets of the success.and ya,if u had any past exp then i know how it feels,but then time will heal:)
    hey,i wanted to ask u this,can i cpoy the pic below,i want to put it up on my sytem,plzzzz

  • Kangs(கங்கா)

    Temple picture is very clear and nice one.
    //The cat & Alice seems to be a joke, but provides insight about choose where to go first, then you can find the way how to reach there//.
    I need couple more pictures. Post it when you get a chance.

  • Krish

    >Hi Neels…You are welcome take that pic..even its not mine…what you see is what u get…in this page 🙂

  • Krish

    Thanks for the comment…sure I would send you the other pictures taken..

    >Very nice picture. I did a lot of temple visits last time I came back. Went to the Navagraha temples (most of them) and a lot of other nearby temples. Have you been to the Thanjavur temple – the pooja that they do their is quite elaborate and interesting – with all the Tharai and Thappatai. I went their just before the closing and at that time the prasadam is milk – that was very tasty.

    About the boy:
    Maybe he was really trying to help you guys or Maybe he was doing it just for some money.

  • Twin-Gemini

    >Almost forgot: How did you like Constantine? Looks like they released it almost at the same time they did over here – which is a very good thing. I was actually wanting to go see it, as it stars Keanu Reeves and from the ads I thought it might be something like the Matrix movie – you say it’s a comedy? 🙂

  • Nth Dimension

    >Hey Krish..
    Just a small piece of advise. Try to take people at face value at all times, unless they’ve proven unworthy of trust.

    And there was nothing wrong/untrustworthy in that kid offering to help and in return asking for money. And there is nothing wrong in your not accepting the help either. But, try not to judge the actions of the kid based on your past experiences. It is unfair to you, and to the kid.

    I know it is easier said than done, but in general, try not to be judgemental of anything or anyone. Things are not always what they seem to be.

    BTW, I went to PEC with you..Mech..Ramesh..
    M.Subbu mentioned your blog link to me last week…pleasant surprise.

  • Prasad

    >hey krish.. ya,i too thought he might have done for a living.. but, in these cases, we shoudl ask him why he is doing so and then proceed..
    the reason why am saying this is even i had the same experience in Suseendram temple in Kanyakumari..
    there an old man came and explaned to us everything.. but in the end whatever we gave him, he was not enought with that.. he was an old man, so we gave him what he asked for atlast..

  • Krish

    >Hi Anand,
    Visited Thanjavur during schooldays..i need to visit that again !

    Coming to “Constantine” : I am a fan of Matrix. The only thing common bet’n that and constantine is … no one know what they r upto 🙂 …anyway it’s my view …please blog once u watch that movie 😀

  • Krish

    >Hi Daphlo@Ramesh..surprise..surprise…good that i i’am in touch with you life…thatks for the comments..i’ll come 2 ur blog buddy 🙂

  • Krish

    >Hi Prasad,
    Yeah..these things happen… if we can help them..or just ignore…and try not to judge anyone lest it it wud affect us !

    >Not been catching up with your blog frequently, of late. Sorry about that.

    When I read your note on the boy: I had one thought – he’s out for money. Blame me for being suspicious, but that’s the world today.

    As for the deleted post, you can never be too sure. There’s Google, MSN Cache. I read it via Bloglines (which is where I read most of my stuff nowadays).
