Last weeks activities:
On Sunday 15th, november 2009 we started for Chidambaram via Jan sadapthi 2083 express train. Muthu rathinam acompanied me. We went to chidambaram to meet Mr. prabu of Lutheran world services India. He works as co-ordinator in that international NGO organization. Earlier we had discussed with prabu regarding the software requirement for stock ledger maintenance. The software project was agreed by the NGO's National headquarters at mumbai. So, to finalize the deal we went to the Tamilnadu Branch at chidambaram. They work for tsunami relief constructions in cuddalore and two more sites.
We boarded the train at 7.50 am on sunday. The train reached mayiladuthurai junction at about 2.40 via Tiruchirappalli, Tanjavur and kumbakonam. We met prabu in the evening and collected details for the project. We met the accounts officer, stores in-charge in the process. The project was finalized for Rs. 25000 (Inclusive of 10.3 percent service tax). We received 50% payment as advance in the form of a/c cheque the next day. The same day we visited Chidambaram Nataraja temple. The temple is famous for lord shiva. (I lost my chappals there!). The great temple is one of the oldest temple complex in south india and attaracts several thousand tourists every year.
Mayiladuthurai is only 40 km away from chidambaram. We reached mayiladuthurai on monday afternoon at to get the jan satapthi at 2.35. Our driver got us to the station in-time. We reached tirupur junction at 8.40 pm.
The moonsoon was still bringing rain to tamilnadu. The worst was over for ooty. The queen of hills was tormented by the non stop rain. It was still drizzling when i got home. I bought some snacks at aasai bakery, karumathampatti and reached home for dinner.
