Yesterday when i woke from short afternoon nap, a sudden thought striked me. Why can’t I donate earrings made by me to the kids in a orphanage. Immediately i discussed it with my hubby and took action to fulfill the thought which striked me. Then, purchased the wanted materials and packed it in covers separately. Then conversed with the orphanage people and fixed an appointment with them today evening. Spent awesome 30 mins there. I had taken most of the earring collections, bangles, hairpins, color pencils. This is the first deed after having started my home business. Our small gesture towards them brought an immense pleasure in their faces.. The pleasure enjoyed with them was priceless. Felt satisfied on seeing their faces. I handed over personally each kid a pair of earrings and other stuff. So happy to be with them. A evening spent in a whole hearted way. Hope to do more such acts in future. Thanks to the Almighty for giving me such an opportunity.The orphanage details are as follows: UDHAVUM ULLANGAL, located at West Karikalan street, Adambakkam, Chenna 600 088. Near St.Thomas mount railway station.
After a long time, am writing a travelogue- A very short trip to Palani.
On Nov 22nd night, we started(me, raghu. mom n dad) around 9.30pm and landed in palani around 7.10 am in railway feeder road palani near KPN office the next day. Then we were escorted to a hotel where we are supposed to stay! The hotel where we stayed is “Vasantha Bhavan – Abirrami Residency”. We had a comfortable stay there except for the fact that it was little far from the temple.
After we entered the hotel, we had our bath and got ready by 8.30 am. Then we started to temple in a auto. While climbing up, we went through யானை வழிப் பாதை. We carried a small pot of milk, and another pot of curd while climbing up for abishegam. At around 10.15 am we reached the temple.Then we went in 100 rs. queue. Since we did abishegam, we were allowed to sit for 5-7 mins. After the darshan, we came downwards thru ropecar. Then, we went to our place to take rest.
In the evening, we went in a car to a temple named periyavudaiyar thirukkovil.
Its a sivan temple. We had pongal prasadam there and then slowly started towards thaarapuram anjaneyar temple which was 40 kms from palani. The full name of the temple is “Kaadu anumantharaya swami temple”.
We had a superb darshan there. We prayed for everyone’s well being. Since it was saturday, had a lot of rush in the temple. Inspite of the rush in the temple, we had a good darshan there. Then on the way we had our dinner and came back to the hotel peacefully. The next day, me n raghu alone went to the temple again to have a darshan. We climbed upwards through யானை வழிப் பாதை.
We both enjoyed climbing up.. We had a darshan for 2 secs only in rajaalangaram. the same 100 rs queue. Same way, while coming down also, we came thru the same way!! We had a great time!!
Then after returning from the temple to the room, we visited the nearby shops for timepass. After that, as usual took rest.. Then in the night we started our journey back to chennai. On the whole, it was a relaxing 2 days short temple visit trip to palani..

Basic Embroidery Stitches Contd…..
Trials of Stem Stitch Design: How has it come folks?
My try in learning basic embroidery stitches… To start with, a simple straight line stitch….
Like we see God in a Mother’s form… same way is doctor too!!
If doctor’s treatments does not yield proper or positive results, we should not leave hope n instead grow our belief in the almighty still more stronger for our mind to be.. We can find out a way to come out of it!! There is a saying that “If one door is closed, there is another door opened out for sure”.. So believe in yourself and your belief in god stronger!!!
At this time, crafts give a new lease of life to me which i had been practising for more than 5 yrs now…. that too in various forms.. Still interested in learning more!!
Hope to learn more n waiting for more merrier moments to come!!!
Slow n steady my wishes come true in my personal life too!!!
Wish am able to achieve things in life!!
Hope the almighty makes me more stronger to face the toughest situations also…
