Chittur Kaavu - 2

When Kongan atracked Chittur, the Elder of the 2 Devis sent her younger sister to fight him

After Killing Kongan Devi was tired and happily accepted Non Veg Food and Liquour offered by a Devotee 1/n
When time came her to rejoin her Sister, she waa reluctantly told she cannot as she has eaten non veg and consumed liqour

But the Elder Sister gave her a place above her and coroned her as the Presiding Deity of Chittur 2/n
And devotees have to pray the younger sister prior to worshipping the elder one

Pooja for younger sister is by a non brahmin (Non Veg has been replaced with White Pumpkin) while Elder Sisters pooja is by Brahmins 3/n
Thus the Younger Sister Lords over Chittur as Chittur Bhagavathy with all her might and is immensely Powerful, while the elder sister looks on her from Keeazhkaavu with benevolence with a silent pride only a sibling can have n/n

Marketing concept talks about identifying consumer needs and then coming out with a product offering to satisfy the needs. Most of the successful companies follow this principle. 1/n Image
But there are exceptions. If you have an exceptional product, then people will go to any extend to own or consume the product.

My native place, Palghat, is a sleepy town. It is like a Shanghri la. 2/n
Nothing much has changed in Palghat, despite it being a rice bowl of Kerala and a District head quarters.

The town has been unspoit by the the shopping malls that has sprouted up in other parts of Kerala. 3/n

I was a young college student once, doing my Pre Degree Course (+2) and then the Graduation Program at Government Victoria College, Palghat (1979-1984). We were a group of 17. A good majority of that gang had studied in BEM High School in the same class from 5th to 10th std. 1/n
In the College, we took different groups for PDC and had different majors in our undergraduate program. But we were good friends, with multitude of talents and varying personality. I could hardly remember any two of us fighting over the 5 years we were in GVC. 2/n
We were politically aware, sports crazy, fairly good in studies and generally considered to be a joyful, harmless group. Our political ideologies were different, from those who were neutral to SFI activists, KSU activists and even ABVP activists. 3/n

Can you imagine doing a business with a Cost of Capital of 1500%!!!!

Sounds absurd isn't it! But this is precisely what is happening in lower strata in India.

Let me elaborate... 1/n
You must have seen the lady vegetable vendor who comes to your house everyday carrying a basket full of vegetables every day. She gets up at 4 am in the morning, goes to the local market and asks the money lender for a small capital to buy one basket of vegetables. 2/n
Money lender gives her Rs 5000. He,in fact, gives her only Rs 4750 after deducting his interest of Rs 250. The lady, buys vegetables for Rs 4750, goes around her beat selling vegetables at a nominal profit. At the end of the day, she has to return Rs 5000 to the money lender 3/n

Movie Hall thoughts

In 1970s Cinema Theatres used to have tunnels with a small window at the top to manage crowd. You enter the tunnel that was just 3 feet wide, and 200 meters long. Ticket is issued at the other end. 1/3
There was no emergency exit, no fans, it was humid and hot. Sometimes you get stuck inside for an hour. I used to be petrified of them

The best acoustics were in a Theatre that had a Thatched Roof. For First and Secon Shows they kept exits open allowing cool breeze in 2/3
Thangaraj Theatre in Kollengode was special. Halfway through the movie you will have stray dogs licking your feet 3/3

My father was an Executive Engineer in Kerala State Electricity Board. While at school, I used to jump into his official Jeep whenever he travels. One day we were going to his Superiors Office in Calicut, 150kms away. We left by 7am and heard a sound coming from the rear tyre 1/n
Father asked the Driver to drive straight to the designated workshop to have it fixed. When we reached, Chief Mechanic came running down and heard the Complaint and told he will fix it. He went in.

A boy of 17 came out, opened the Engine & started dismantling the Radiator 2/n
Alarmed, Father asked him why was he removing the Radiator for an issue with Rear Tyre

The boy, in all his innocence, told "Sir, in this Workshop, I have been instructed to remove the Radiator of any vehicle, irrespective of the complaint"😃

Stunned, Father blew his top 3/n

Sunday Poser;

When was the last time you said with all your heart "Thank You"?

When was the last time you said to anyone" I appreciate what you have done for me"?

When was the last time you said " I love you" to your spouse? 1/n
When was the last time you called up your parents and said " I am what I am because of you, thanks. I love you"?

When was the last time you waited an extra second to let go a car in the traffic?

When was the last time you helped a Stranger? 2/n
When was the last time you went out of the way to help a colleague?

When was the last time you read or told a story to your child/grandchild or hugged him/her?

When was the last time you sat with your teen aged boy/girl and listened to his/her dreams? 3/n
