For New members of this group..Gokul's letter
  • Hello,

    Really Gokul's letter mirrors the reality among those wish to search for more on Chola's...and after reading Sivakamiyin Sabathan...looking for Vatapi...

    Of course I am one among per Gokul's letter...suffereing from the disease!

    Gokul...your writing is should devote more time for writing.

  • Hello,

    Sometimes I feel leaving the news once for all...pack myself and go to places near Trichy, Thanjavur..Thirumayam..Virupaksha temple on the Tungabadra river, cave temples at Badami..But can it happen? Gokul's description about the deceased man is working on me!

  • Dear Vaidyanathan,

    Chandrasekarendra Saraswathi Swamingal's writings were published in
    serial in Kalki in late 80s and he was narrating almost every temple
    from Mayavaram (now Mayiladuthurai) to Thanjavur .. with such finer
    details !

    I felt the same way to visit each temple after reading an article, when
    I was in a Defence Establishment Chennai, to travel by passenger train
    with a Jolna bag and get down at each temple and spend time leisurely ..

    Almost after 5 years, I quit my job and could do this in my Two wheeler
    and spent months in the Chozha heart land wandering ..

    Chidambaram - Veeranam (kaatumannargudi) - Kadambur - Thiruvarur to
    Kodikkarai ! .. stretched to Thanjai - Pudukottai - Narthamalai -
    Kodumbalur - Pillayarpatti - Thirukkottiyur - Sivaganga!

    Those interested in this, should definitely have the feel of these
    places, breath the air and record the experiences atleast in their mind
    .. which can be recalled and cherished for rest of their life.

    How sad, in this decade of the IT industry, we dont
    have the time for such passions...

    and his works by Vanathi Padippagam are available..
