    manai aram padutta kadai

    manimegalai had taken the first pichai ( Bhiksha) from Adirai. The first feeding had to be done to Kayasandigai who had an unsatifiable hunger ( Yanaithee) She was cursed by a sage.

    Once Nediyon ( Vishnu) out of Maya ( mayakkathal) took a human form. He built a bridge in the sea with the help of Monkeys. Those monkeysput big trees, mountainsin the sea and they all went into the sea without any trace. My hunger is also like that and whatever i put inside goes without a trace.

  • I think it is valmikis samadhi.

    1. Thiru vanmiyur is worshipped by valmiki

    2. koyambedu is called Kusalavapuri and the lord is kusalava pureeswarar. It is where valmiki had his ashram and sita gave birth to luv and Kush.

    3. Siruvarampedu alias chinnampedu is the place ( near red hills) where Lava and Kucha took their bows and fought with people who came to take the aswameda horse ( Siruvar + ambu+edu)

    Arunagirinathar mentions this in his thiruppugazh

    "siruvaragiya iruvar ramaodu samaradi" - referd in the song
  • Dear Sir,

  • yes vardini.

  • Siruvapuri, siruvarampedu, siruvai are the same. The link of thiruppugazh given explains it
  • Hi,

    I am not sure if this is correct but some one said

    Saidapet is actually from Sita pettai
    Chromepet is actually Ram pettai


  • Chromepet was named after Chrome Leather Factory...
    It belonged to Thiruchurathoor naadu (Tirisulam county).

    Saidapet was named after a Nawab of Arcot Syed Musalman.

    Lots of parable units attached to our history I guess :-)

  • In Royapettah there is a market called mirsapet market. One fine day I got to see the name board. It was Mir Sahib Pet Market.

  • Dear Ravi,

    You are right.

    They hailed from Pon-Amaravathi !!

    Now they have left Leather ..

    Branched into Schools / Building / Finance.
