So when I received the new Tata Indica Vista D90 for blogger review, I decided to take it to some interior parts of Tamil Nadu. So this was the route.
Started the day 1 from Chennai to Pondicherry, via ECR road
On way to Pondicherry!
Day 2: Morning: Pondicherry to Tiruvannamalai
It was a great experience driving through village roads
Day 2: Afternoon: Tiruvannamalai to Thengannur
Then back to Chennai, covered close to 400 kms!
This post is part of the blog tag titled, The CBC Tablog where CBC stands for Chennai Bloggers Club. About 35 bloggers from Chennai are participating in this blog tag; everyone will write about their favourite city Chennai and what it means to them. So here’s my post for the CBC tablog titled, What Chennai Means To Me. Thanks for passing the baton to me Shashi !
So now its my turn. Well I came to Chennai in 2001, in search of job and in the last 12 years or so, Chennai has gone through so many changes. As most of the bloggers mentioned earlier, there are lots of things that I like in Chennai. Some being Marina Beach, The Schmidt Memorial on Elliots Beach, The Central Railway Station, Ranganathan Street, T.Nagar ,Wonderful temples in the city , Fort St. George and the latest and my fav Anna centenary Library in Kotturpuram.
But then what surprised me the most in Chennai is the emergence of so many interesting and wonderful events in the recent years. Being an event blogger this excites me the most. Chennai hosts of all kinds of events, you name it. Tech events, events in arts, music and drama, on entrepreneurship, startup events, events like TEDx, BIL, PKN and SAM. These events are not only entertaining but informative also and a great place to network and meet interesting people.
I wish Chennai host more and more such wonderful events. Now the tablog must continue, introducing the next blogger Vid Dev, a Chennaiite who blogs at ‘The Pensieve’. http://viddev.wordpress.com
Unlike the Chennai-Pondy Heritage Rally 2011, this time I didn’t take photos of the cars, all the usual suspects were there. It was similar to the 2011 car rally, except there were half a dozen bikes and scooters. This time I tried to capture the response, the crowd, the photographers. So here it is
To start with, some cars
Now the real heroes! Photographers! Everywhere you can see them, with different gadgets
They hunt in groups
Oh, that’s me
Then, everyone wants to take photos with the car
All together, it was a great fulfilled Sunday morning!
“Parallel Lines” : Lecture-concert on Aaron Copland Vs Lalgudi Jayaraman By Anil Srinivasan and Lagudi GJR Krishnan
What’s common between Aaron Copland and Lalgudi Jayaraman? In comparing different perspectives to classical music (as voiced by Edward Said and Daniel Barenboim in “Parallels and Paradoxes”) Anil Srinivasan, a classical pianist best known for his collaborative work with Carnatic vocalist Sikkil Gurucharan, have come across interesting parallels in the work of the legendary Lalgudi Jayaraman and American contemporary composer Aaron Copland.
Lalgudi GJR Krishnan, scion of the Lalgudi family and master violinist, along with Anil Srinivasan, classical pianist who has now worked across domains present a unique lecture and concert of the works of these two master composers. The culmination of the morning will be a joint presentation. Krishnan and Srinivasan have now performed in different venues across the world. Their work was commissioned and recorded by Felmay Records, a label based in Europe and has already come in for immense critical acclaim and serious dialogue. Their concert at the Purcell Room in the Southbank Centre in London on a similar vein was met with great appreciation.
Both these musicians present this morning as a tribute to the living legend Lalgudi Sri Jayaraman.
This unique and interesting lecture-concert is on 24th december, 10 AM at Sri Krishna Gana Sabha. For more details, visit Anil Srinivasan’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/MadrasPianist

“Ideas can be life-changing. Sometimes all you need to open the door is just one more good idea.” Jim Rohn
Ideas are really powerful, as the ad line says an idea can change your life. Samuel Eddy, who is passionate about life changing ideas, has come up with this wonderful concept called SAM Global.
SAM stands for “Science, Art, Management” which means it encompasses almost any subject and SAM global will be a place where ideas meet! So what we can expect in SAM? its TED like concept, but with a twist. SAM will showcase the best talks from all over the world and will be a platform “where Ideas Meet“ and will encourage the cross pollination of ideas from all over the world. It will also encourage the implementation of such Ideas .It will attempt to connect the Innovator and the person wanting to implement the Idea!!
How SAM works
If you are a great orator, an achiever in your own space and has got a great story / idea to share, the team from SAM Global will come and record your talk. Talk will be for maximum 12 minutes and will be featured in SAM website. Once your talk goes viral and becomes popular, you will be invited to share your idea at the SAM Global event. The first SAM Global conference is scheduled to happen in Chennai on August 2013.
So let the ideas come from all sides and change our lives.
