Chennapatnam to Madras to Chennai

Chennapatnam to Madras to Chennai

Usually there is this 2nd Part Jinx theory. But that sure does not apply to the CBC Tablog-2. Running successfully in blogs near you.

I was born in Madras and now live in Chennai. As time goes on who knows what else it would change into. But what’s in a name? The city has changed with the times but Madras is unbreakable. Madras has been ruled by so many countries but it was during the British…

Food Tales - From The Past

Food Tales – From The Past

Food tales is a chronicle of my experiences with food. I love what I eat but do I write about food with equal passion. These tales are an attempt to explore that and of course share my love for food.

I am a proud product of Don Bosco, Egmore. I spent 14 years of my life studying there and recently at DB Converge our alumni meet I had a chance to interact with a few of my teachers. I realized that…

Shit like this gets turned down!

Shit like this gets turned down!

It has been 5 years since a group of friends decided to go on a trip to Leh, Ladakh. It was a high that has been pretty much un-beatable since literally we travelled the highest roads in India. This trip happened much before the bollywood movie 3 Idiots. So not too many Indians. Actually it felt like I was in some foreign country. Leh was flooded with foreigners. We had a chance to taste food from different countries. Of course we were there for a different purpose. Capture the beauty of the region.

Like my friend Joel aptly said “Even a blind man can take beautiful photos of Leh.” Beauty is all around you. If you get a good home-stay then you get the additional experience of living the Leh life and also drink endless butter teas. We stayed at the Sia La family at their guesthouse. Lovely family. Great place to stay and walking distance to the Bazzar.

I wish I could do this trip again sometime soon. Only regret I had was we could not spend enough time in Pangong Tso and Nubra Valley. But we visited so many monasteries and the plates of momo’s and bowls of thukpa that I consumed were innumerable.

Draupadi being disrobed in the court of the Kauravas and Krsna coming to her rescue. 
Crayola Sketchpens on Moleskine Large sketchbook - 13 x 21 cm 

Draupadi is the wife of the five Pandava Princes. During a gambling match that Yudisthir is lured into, the Pandavas lose their entire kingdom as well as their wife in the process. Draupadi is said to have been dragged into a court of men and disrobed in front of her husbands, who are bound to their words and thus unable to do anything. At this juncture, she calls for help to Lord Krsna who robes her body as the Kauravas disrobe it, thus saving her honour. It’s a scene in the Mahabharat that talks about the foolishness of the Pandavas gambling away, the devotion of Draupadi towards Krsna and the love that Krsna has for his devotees.
