It was interesting to go around and appreciate this huge, 54 rooms Chettinad house at Devakottai.
This majestic Chettinad house, named RM.M.ST house is at Devakottai. You will hardly miss this house while passing through Devakottai on Rameshwaram road.
This building was constructed almost 100 years back. The materials used are from different parts of the Wold
Floor tiles from Italy, Burma teak and Chinese glass
Found some very interesting things, gigantic Idlly plate, bags and boxes made of wood and bamboo, hospital carbolic soap from England
Now am planning to visit Devakottai again, to see a dozen more houses like this
For the last 32 years I was strong,had an attractive personality, was sensitive, gentle and patient but from Jan 1 onwards
I have become serious,independent and strong willed. I am hardworking and responsible now( peopel who work with me, please notice this point) I am unemotional and at times shrewd, practical and no longer a dreamer.
No this is not some New Year resolution or something.
Due to changes in the earth’s rotation,the wobbly orbit has changed the way the planet is aligned to the stars. and this has resulted in how Earth is related to the stars, end result,
My zodiac sign has changed, from aquarius to Capricon.
As a result of this planetory changes, my compatibility has gone for a toss. I no longer compatible to Gemini and Libra,Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. My new compatibility list is Taurus and Virgo,Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.
Now my likes and dislikes have also changed considerably, have a look
I used to like fighting for Causes, but not now. Dreaming was one of my strong traits but no longer I like to dream, because
now I think its a go nowhere job
Now I am totally confused!!! should I change my behaviour according to the stars or will it change automatically
Or should I go with what William Shakespeare had said, “The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, But in ourselves”
