Tamil Conference or DMK party Meeting?

The DMK government has once again proved their might. They stunned coimbatore by mustering a huge gathering of people from all over tamilnadu. People were pouring in from buses, cars, trucks etc. The codissia trade fair center has never seen such a huge crowd. I can account 95% of these people from DMK party members. Locals from coimbatore, Tirupur, Erode were small in number. I could see the number plates of those vehicles from as far as kanyakumari, kadalur, tuticorin, Dharmapuri etc.

Kalaignar karunanidhi innaugurated the conference today. Hon. Indian president pratibha patil was the chief guest. Hon. Tamilnadu Governer Barnala and Deputy CM Stalin were also present. The first day was not people's day. There was nothing for the general public, except the road show from VOC park to codissia which i did not attend. The fair will be open for public only tomorrow. I took some snaps of the semmozhi conference. These pictures are not so nice. But they are to be looked at.

My humble motorola's VGA camera cannot take much better pictures. I wish i had canon SLR with powerful zoom.

Nishant on 21-6-10

I am just back from mettupalayam. My son is now about 3 months old. One more week to complete 3 months. Now he listen well to sounds. Babies of this age should listen to sounds. He moves his head where the sound sound comes from. He focus on faces. I still wonder whether he recognize mom, dad. No idea. I read that newborn males have chance of developing hydrocele, accumulation of liquid in scrotum sac. In most babies it will disappear at about 1 year of age. If not a small operation is required, which is outpatient procedure and risk free.

He has not developed another habit. He is sucking his thumbs. Most babies start sucking thumbs even while in mother's womb. There is not much to worry about it. Babies will forget it when they are grown up.

I have launched Online Book shop for Tamil Books

The idea was a spark. I have some talent, knowledge of online industry especially e-commerce. Why not i use that talent to create a new business model. With the growth of internet most people purchase goods and services online. I considered many things and finally concluded to open online book shop. Sales of any tangible goods require substantial investment. But i can not invest that much. I will do the marketing part. Get the orders online and the book publishers will fulfill their orders.

I will do my marketing part by hosting website, Cataloging books from various publishers, and making arrangements for online payments using credit card, net banking.

Of course, this is not a new business model as there are numerous e-commerce sites like e-bay, amazon etc. But Indian people are not much used to it. But there is a huge potential in the near future. Please take a look at my site. and give your comments.

Currently i have plan to cater the needs of Tamil people only. That means i will be selling only Tamil books. In future i may decide to cater others as well. Right now i have arrangements for paying online using Credit/Debit card in Paypal. This is a simple and secure way to pay online. I just registered my domain the day before yesterday. I use opencart - an opensource shopping cart application. Here is the snapshot of the site,

Sucking his thumbs

Most infants start sucking their thumbs at this stage. This is the only play available to them. My son is also putting his hands and fingers into his mouth. It is so cute to watch while he was helping with one hand to put another hand into mouth. How to prevent this habit? We don't know how to. We just wrap around his hand with a cloth. It is annoying for him. He cries when he was not able to put his fingers in mouth. I think he associated thumb sucking with hunger and milk feeding. Whenever he feels hungry he sucks finger.

As usual i have uploaded this month's photos. He is now more than two months old.

Mithra's Marriage

After uncle and aunt's death their two daughters were completely orphaned. College going mithra discontinued college and stayed at home. It is now more that 6 months after uncle's death and his younger daughter is married today. It is the effort of minnakadu mani that culminated in this marriage. The groom is our relative named palanisami. The physical compatibility is good. In terms of money and wealth both are matched. We did not match horoscope. Just obeyed the God's will by asking red flower.

The marriage took place at our kula theivam temple at kadaiyur near kangeyam. The newly married couple are just home. I wish them a great married life. I wish them all prosperity and success. I wish them a healthy and disease free life. I wish them good and virtuous children. May my lord Sri Ragavendra and Sri Hari Narayana protect them from all mishaps and helps them in their struggle.
