The Heat is On!Views: 9202
Feb 25, 2009 4:42 amThe Heat is On!#

No, its not about the great heights we have reached in the history of Cinema.
Not even about the much awaited series of India with New Zealand which is about to begin in a little while from now.
Nor the giant strides in the field of Sports (all other Sports), Art, Kalaimamanis etc etc.

Its about the heat - as in weather. Chennai always faces Summer round the year - but I find that even in Feb its more like Agni Natchathiram. And the frequent power cuts are only adding to the already growing list of woes! :(

Any ideas and suggestions on how to keep cool and brave the heat?

Drink normal water with salt and lemon regularly to maintain body salts. Use cottonwear and if possible keep the head cool with hair oil. Skin to be protected from sun burns and usage of UV blocking sun glasses will help eyes remain safe.

Cheers,

What Mr.Shivaji said is perfect. I do the lemon with salt and sugar as much as possible. Tender coconut is too costly for Chennai.(Min 15 Rs). I know they buy it at a cost of 2.50/3.00 at the coconut grooves.

infact, i thought of starting a thread 'Summer & General Elections'. anyway, we can discuss it here now.
many psephologists say that bad weather conditions (extreme hot, heavy rain, etc) mostly

Take lots of water or shikanji, avoid direct exposure to sun as much as you can. Use mainly cotton clothes and only cotton undergarments. Cover yourself up as much as you can when out in the sun, use white or pastel coloured clothes, dark colours absorb more heat. Use sunglasses which block UV radiation and cuts glare. Polarized glasses are particularly good.

Just keep the weather away from your thoughts ..Don't grumble or think about the heat and just dream you are in Switzerland..Keep your head cool. Don't get into arguments with Stranger, Muralidharan, BG, SF (Square) and don't ever start replying the queries raised by VKY..(Now who is VKY? Vengala Kadaiyil Yaanai ? Now who is that ? GR ofcourse )

Get through the topics from our Vikramadityan (Thalara manath thalaivan - Padmanabhan ..whether anyone replies or not he just posts na?) single Minded Mohan ..child's career over then waste management then let us see, and ofcourse Pudumai, the traffic minded Policeman who keeps himself cool with his yahoo group and also two line posters.

Finally read the casual threads from Charles the Prince, Sekar Narasimhamoorthy, KR, GB, SS, Jaishankar, Shivaji, PT etc etc to make yourself feel cool.

Inthe evenings you can get into the heavy topics from Charu T.

I just keep cool keeping account of different noses and ears of the passenger. Am amazed at the variety..

Seriously speaking

Yes you should avoid refrigerated water/water with ice cubes during summer. Better go with Mud pot water if you really want chilled water. Heat the water early morning and pour it in the mud pot surrounded by river sand.

You can have "neer more". Add butter milk to the water from the "Pazhayathu" and drink it for the morning.

Completely skimmed butter milk(The butter has to be removed completely)

Wash your face mainly the eyes as often as possible with plain water and clean it with cotton clothes.

Have a cotton white cap for your head.

And yes LK(G) has suggested stay away from Me, but I dont want to suggest about others....

Besides all this, I find him as a good friend too and being the 'Lk(g)', she just sometimes blurts out whatever comes to her mind without thinking about the consequences.. May be that is why you are Great KR and me the humble platformwasi. May be, I will learn in due course as I grow up.

Pudumai ..If I have offended the police officer in you, then I am sorry. But for me you are also one of the CNK family member and as I take liberty with any of the family member, I took with you too.

Sorry, I can only give drinking tips, not making tips!

From my memory I can say that one has to put whole raw mangoes on the flame and roast it till the skin is charred, then take it out of the flame, remove the charred skin and squeeze the mango pulp into liquid, strain it, add salt or sugar (according to taste) to the juice and drink it. I only performed the last part, so the memory about the rest is somewhat vague.

But I am sure if you google for it, you will find a recipe on the net.

Why do you want to go for a product from Thailand?

Even today there is a product on packaged tender coconut water. Since the govt is not sponsoring/supporting the product its not available everywhere and regularly. Iam really desperate to taste that, but not yet lucky for it.

No not true, But if you have spent half your life in either airconditioned place or a place like the NE of USA with very less pollution to stick to your skin, it takes its toll. And that is why I might not be able to stand the heat.

Senthil,
It was exactly during the packaged Tender Coconut was the Jelly form. The person who introduced it to Chennai, earlier had tasted it in Thailand and as he was not able to get their secret formula had to buy it from him and thats how in Chennai we got an opportunity to even know abt this product.

I thought it would take off v well in Tamil Nadu cause of the Summer season throughout the year but somehow there were no takers expect for a handful. There were also vending booths at stragegic locations but that too didn't do too well and I assume they jus wound up and left cause there is no sign of it anywhere.

Am told chemicals were added to make it as close to the orginal and for preservation. Though priced at Rs. 5 a glass, it was not too popular.

Hey friends

Talking about heat-ameliorating beverages, I am reminded of that efficacious specific called "Jigguru danda" unique to Madurai. If any of you have ever lived in Madurai, you would experientially know the effect of a glass of JD on a May afternoon out in the sun. Incidentally jigguru danda is a corruption of Jigar Thanda ( Urdu )
By the way it is now available in Chennai- you can get it in Abhirami Mall for one.

For a glass of cold sugarcane juice!
My daughter (son is fussy so we leave him out) and I make a regular habit of going to T Nagar or Mint Street jus for the refreshing drink - shopping jus happens ;) Mint Street has the added advantage of eating spicy green chutney sandwich and cooling off with 2 glasses of pure relish at almost every street corner.

Sugarcane juice is a best thing.

Times of India Report 3rd March 09

TIMES NEWS NETWORK

Bangalore: Keep your wet wipes ready and get those summer clothes out of the closet. Bangalore has already crossed the 35-degree Celsius mark this year, and it’s likely to get hotter in a week’s time.
T h e re could be a short respite in March-end when pre-m o n s o o n showers are likely. According to the agro-met department, there is hardly any moisture in the soil. Many crops are drying due to this.
“It is likely to go up to 38 degrees Celsius in April. Chances of rain are remote in the coming ten days,” meteorological department director A Muthuchami said. The agro-met department cannot say if there will be a drought. If there is no premonsoon rain, the impact could be severe.
“Summers are becoming hotter due to global warming. There is stress on the atmosphere and no moisture in the soil,” agrometeorology professor Rajegowda said.

Very nice 52 deg F about 14 deg C.

The sun warmed the ice and one could see the melt flowing in streets like tiny brooks. By midday the weather was so good that the kids in the neighborhood and my house were out in their T shirts with tennis rackets ready to play driveway Tennis.

Then they was running around all house yards with the NERF guns. We also had our time changed today at 2 AM. Usually the Daylight Saving is done on the second week sunday in March.

The Tulips have started sprouting out of the mulch, the strawberry bush has shown some green leaves. Next week we are expecting some more snow.

The weather in the afternoon on sunday was nice 55 deg F. So nice time to clear the lawn and get all the broken twigs/branches ( beacuse of snow) out of the yard. The kids in the neighborhood have started cycling the cul-de-sac. A cul-de-sac is a dead end road where the road ends as a circle. Most of us prefer this type of neighborhood becuase of less traffic and more parking space when we have party other than being safe for kids.

The bigger kids were all with their NERF guns shooting foam darts at each other and running.

I tried and clear half the front yard(raking to get the dead leavs and grass out). This week we are expecting some snow. After that probably all spring. St.Patrick's Day marks coming of spring.

One of the few things I am becoming unaware of now is power cut. The 10 years in Singapore had 2 hrs of powercut. In the 8 years I am here in US probably 5 - 6 hrs of powercut. I do not know what I am going to do in India. Last time when I visited, ,it was indeed difficult on all nights. But I have the habit of sleeping when the TV is on so when there was power in the nights have the fan and the TV on was my policy.

I believe Chennai is better because of less power cuts. Almost i dont face power cuts in my home and office. But recently i visited Tirupathi(Keezh Tirupathi)within 14 hours stay i faced 3-4 hours power cut.

Even in Bangalore-the IT capital of Asia, i experienced atleast 4 hours power cut during summer and even in June, July once i visited in 2007.

How is the situation now ? CP or SN can brief me.

Whenever i meet frequent visitors of Bangalore, they use to criticize that Bangalore is no more cool place.

Infact i had experienced even in June July it was very hot once. But the only happiest part of scroching summer is sometimes it may rain or even cool evenings. Thats why people prefer to stay in Bangalore.

Chennai today is somewhat acceptable. temperature remain warm. Not so heat and not so cool. comfortable.

We are officially into Spring.

The grass is still struggling to become green but the sun is out most of the day.

Very less snow.

The tiny tots(girls) around the neighborhood are with their pail of chalks and are making the driveways colorful. The bigger kids are either playing basketball or cycling. All of them are out from 9.00 in the morning to say 7 in the evening( that is when it is becoming dark)on weekends.

Some spring plants have started sprouting.

The weather is warming up, we will be in 40-21 most of the days. Clearing the yards are happening slowly. Yesterday(sunday) it was cold (after two days of warmth) so none of us were yarding.

It will probably touch a nice 20 deg C in mid april if my predictions are correct. But beware, we have had snow in May some years back. so bring at least a nice sweater and a cool shoes. The rest is up to you.

that is where the difference lies. The monkeys who came here have already got transformed as well as transforms; from starting to ape the locals, to make the locals adopt/adapt. The newer gen monkeys that are coming in are too advanced for this country. Primarily due to undue exposure to a culture that is only for export from here.

Other than that, we are inching to a 41 deg at 7.00 AM on 4/2/2009 ( remember we put the month first over here when we write the date). Not bad at all.

The daffodils are so pure bright yellow outside the office, the pink hyacinth had more flowers. Some folks here have started adding new mulch to their yards making them more red than it was the prev year.

I always felt and believed that it is the immigrants from other countries who developed USA at the cost of natives who were basically red indian tribes men(the red indians were decimated by early white settlers).All the bias shown now towards immigrants now is by the early settlers decendents and ofocurse, the african blacks who were imported as slaves then were left to fend for themselves when slavery was abolished.As pointed out by you the newgen monkeys are smart enough to know the ground realities, so the strategies for survival and growth are understood /practiced/adopted.

4/2/2009 is understood commonly now and 41 deg F would be called freezing here in India .

41 deg F was understood commonly and very well in India much before 'NOW' came into being . . . . . In 1956 the Government of India enacted the Standards of Weights and Measures Act to bring in metrication and decreed 1962 as the completion date for the changeover . . . . .

Settlers need not be legal immigrants .

The same fair skinned people who enacted laws against racial discrimination even now we are aware make racial statements.

Autralians are another example .Glen Mcgrath called Sanath Jayasuriya a black monkey and got away with it!!!!???The same Australians like saints complained about Harbhajan singh and Phil Symonds is another saint among them!!?

We Indians face more racial slurs even more than a so called Afro American in U.S. because we are more successful.

The european settlers grabbed the land of American (red) Indians by first killing them to reduce them to almost to extinction.

The legitimate immigrant goes fair and staight to start a new life in U.S. with all prejudices from settlers.

There are at least a 100,000 expatriates in Bangalore at any point in time for the last three years! That's a huge # by any standards!!

It is true that people move towards the place where jobs are found .If telegu expats are paid 1/3rd of locals then it means their quality/output is not equal to the local or they have grossly under sold themselves ,in both cases they have to only blame themselves first.

The reason for me bringing the telugus is that to show that we esp (I) have moved to two different countries have taken jobs that a local will be paid more for. And not in any demeaning way. Most of my friends have roots in that community.

At one point or other we all move from place to place, a la Nomadic style. If this has to be stopped then self sufficiency is the only way to sustain. That is not possible for a ever commodity loving race.

The weather is becoming pleasant. Yesterday the first rains came(torrential) the remaining mud and ice on the sides of roads melted , the sand that was thrown on the roads to prevent skidding when there was snow is washed off. The grass have started looking green.

The kids have started playing beach football. Living in a neighborhood with good neighbors is a boon I think. Each of us have a way to engage the children while other parents are busy.

Hyacinths are blooming, the moneyplant has wakened from its dormancy. Have to go and look for Hibiscus plants and roses bush. Have started throwing the seeds of Bell Pepper(Capsicum) and the mint stalks in empty water soaked pots thinking that there would be good garden coming soon.

one of the reason to adamantly sitting in the Northeast of US is for the fact to enjoy all the four seasons.

Yesterday (sunday) had a party at home with about 7 families. The weather warmed up to 60 deg . All the bigger kids and the fathers were out playing kickball in the yard. The little ones with their cycles and chalks on the driveway.

Good indian food(potluck) and some games.

The outside temp last night stayed at 49 deg F. It is still a little windy. But people have started to tend the lawn.

Oh no I don't think so. I have heard my friends and relatives envy us in India when they have to do all the household chores and also tend the lawns and also shovel the snow from their drive-way.
They have to wait a min of 3 months for a doctor's appointment - have heard such horror tales when one of the kids fall ill and the parents can't take off to take care of their kid. My mom who spends 6 months in US to take care of her grandsons worries a lot and prays that she does not fall ill cause it costs a small fortune during each visit. Parents with lil kids have to depend on relatives from India to take care of the young ones. Only the first time its a thrill - from the 2nd visit they get bored to death as they r fully dependent on their kids to take them out which is very difficult. Life in the US is not as rosy as they would like us to believe.
In more ways than one its a dog's life - thats their usual quote.
So PR save your pity.

Wow! the heat is now turning on the relative merits of living in India Vs living in the US!

But one thing you must admit KR, living in the US makes Indian men and women understand the meaning of dignity of labour. I remember when my brother came back from the US in the sixties, he used to address the servant 'aap', much to the annoyance of my mom. :D

You are right .The dignity of labour is very much practiced in U.S.

The flip side in staying outside in INdia is you need a good salary to live comfortably and need to manage the daily chores yourself.

I was told living in China is very comfortable and hiring labour is easy and they come at a economic cost with good quality/output!!!!!

Apr 07, 2009 2:47 amre: re: re: re: re: re: re: The Heat is On!#

Ganesh Ram
I would agree with everything KR has said. I will also add that the same is true when you move from one state to another in India. Except of course the snow shovelling thingy.

Let me give my side of KR's views.

1.The household chores are to be done by themselves.

A) Not necessarily. But most often yes.
There are professional cleaners who come and clean your house once a week @ $90.00/ 100.00 per visit. It is possible for a double income salary to afford such kind of luxury. But many of us do not want to and think we have to save and send money back to India for investing purposes.
B) the dishwasher and the clothes washer and dryer does most of the cleaning. The house itself does not collect dust like it does in India even in busiest cities. Also we do have cold and hot water to do the dishes(cleaning the dishes).
In many double income salaried households, pizzas, macaroni cheese and sandwich salad combo are a norm. Nowadays many Indian food are frozen or nitrogen packed and are of good quality and cheap. So variety of food is not a problem either.

2. Snow in the driveway.
Those of us who enjoy shovelling / using a snow thrower do this ourselves. Many house owners pay upto $40.00 - 50.00 per visit and get that done.

3. Tending the Lawn
Same as point 2. In fact there are Indians who do not want to spend on these and go into what is called townhouse living, The cost for snow shovelling and lawn upkeep is done by the association for a monthly maint. fee

4.Waiting 3 month for doctor's appointment.
Very true. But only if you wish to get the medicine from the doctor. It is like those in the lower strata in many states in India who would be satisfied if only the doctor gives a jab for any discomfort.
There are what is called primary care physicians and primary care clinic where you do get appointments easily with an internist, There are of course certified Nurse Practitioners who can prescribe medicines for a patient in many cases,

To see a specialist it DOES take 3 months sometime. I think it is the same in India as well. IF not 3 months at least a month. This also varies from state to state over here.

5. Hmmmm,, My fav topic. Child rearing, Yes those of us who have put our career first and still want children, the art becomes rearing than anything lesser than that.
But even for that , there are daycares. after school programs at all levels. YWCA does help. The public schools do these.
It takes a lot of adjustment in a family with two kids when both parents work. Many households prefer one steady income and the other as a part time career. There are many companies that do allow work from home.

And about bringing the parents from India to US, This is a very touchy subject. First of all whose parents to bring.Second is the monetary issue, Anyone who comes to US needs to have a health insurance in US. This is a must. This does eat into your annual income because you cannot show it in your tax for any exemption.

Parents get bored. This was true in the early 2000, But now, you can get all TV channels right in your TV or in the computer, Going to temple is a problem for those parents who have to give their salutations to the almighty(like my parents), But even that got solved last year when she was able to freely sing and participate in temple activities without any issues,

Anyone who goes to a new place will have commuting issues. It is more in US because we lack efficient public transport. But this again is not different from India. If my parents go to Delhi let us say, they will still have travelling problems. Very few parents can go around any place by themselves without the help of their children.

So one can always complain about the problems and spin it as a even we have problems. It happens in most NRI families, But ask them to return to their place of birth many will ignore the call.

Went to Home Depot, one of our local hardware shops, and bought some seeds, Green beans and cucumber. Last year we had NZ vegetable seeds( pollution with foreign seeds). Had Wax Beans and Tomatoes. Harvested about 50 Tomatoes and about a pound of beans. Tried the pumpkin and squash but that did not come out well. The chillies and mint came as well.

This time trying my hand on tomatoes,okra,mint,green beans, cucumber and pumpkin. Have to see what the outcome would be.

Also this tie trying my hand on fertilizing the lawn so went and brought the fertilizer spreader and the fertilizer. There are 3-4 different types of fertilizers. I have to finish Step 1 before end of April.

At same time I wish I can teach some tamil to the kids. Ha how I wish Nannan could be here. For those who have not seen or heard Nannan, he used to teach written tamil in the agri program "vayalum vAzhvum".

The heat is on, on the street
Inside your head, on every beat
And the beat's so loud, deep inside
The pressure's high, just to stay alive
'Cause the heat is on

Oh-wo-ho, oh-wo-ho
Caught up in the action I've been looking out for you
Oh-wo-ho, oh-wo-ho
(Tell me can you feel it)
(Tell me can you feel it)
(Tell me can you feel it)
The heat is on, the heat is on, the heat is on
the heat is on Oh it's on the street , the heat is - on

Caught up in the action I've been looking out for you
Oh-wo-ho, oh-wo-ho

The heat is on, the heat is on, the heat is on
Oh it's on the street , the heat is - on

The shadows are on the darker side
Behind those doors, it's a wilder ride
You can make a break, you can win or lose
That's a chance you take, when the heat's on you
When the heat is on

Oh-wo-ho, oh-wo-ho
Caught up in the action I've been looking out for you
Oh-wo-ho, oh-wo-ho
(Tell me can you feel it)
(Tell me can you feel it)
(Tell me can you feel it)
The heat is on, the heat is on, the heat is on

It's on the street
The heat is on, the heat is on, the heat is on
Yeah it's on the street
The heat is on

Hmmm.... Had a good day yesterday. Finished cleaning the lawn for big debris(old and dried left over leaves of last year). Used the spreader and added the first step fertilizer. The weather was around 60 deg F so it was yard mending time at many homes.

We are expecting showers tonight and possibly a little snow tomorrow. The fertilizer should well set in by that time. Found some annuals with bright color flowers(in the picture on the carton) so bought them and have planted them have to see the outcome later in the coming months.

Have to plant the beans and tomatoes and the mint this sunday perhaps.

The tulips have started flowering. At my office now it is a yellow daffodil and red tulips near the sidewalk. At home the red tulips are opening their buds today/tomorrow.

The next door neighbor is planting blueberries this year. So in years to come can look out for "OC" blue berries.

@Mr.Padhu

You are correct here on the tons.

The hottest day till now for this summer.

The meteorological dept has warned that there is less force in sea wind and so the land wind will come into effect and so more heat is on the cards.

I was cursed to move around today and so felt the heat on my bald head.

The weather is warming up to prpbabky 60 deg F to the max today. The low is 40 deg F.

In the yard, last years sunflower seeds have started sprouting. Had the kids, mine and the neighbors' to plant green bean seeds. Have to see how that grows. The yield should come in 50 days.

Have planted cucumber as well. And some green chilly and bell pepper. Tomorrow if it does not rain today will probably be the first mowing of the lawn.

So the soil is moist with the rain, so off to planting seeds. The birds are happy each time the see me. I plant the seed and they eat them. I can hear them chirping at the yard. We do get birds that are crimson red, to sky blue and all colors in between. Sometimes we do get Raven (andAng kaka)

I sow the seeds and walk back and these birds have come to take their share of food. The earthworms and some of the seeds.

Sowed a row of carrots, a row of cauliflower and a row of broccoli. Have never been able to get them growing in the past two seasons. Oh also have the haberano peppers (had just two flakes)

The green beans have not sprouted in the yard yet. But the one I did in a bottle with tissue paper(remember one of the first science experiments in Biology?)that has sprouted, the kids in the neighborhood are going ga ga over that.

The moneyplant that was left outside for a week started turning black due to cold weather, Have brought that back indoors.

The weather is keeping at 50-69 F. In california it is 70 def F

Have sown some orange seeds. Have to see how that is going to do , Had a free Apple tree seedling last year from the arbor day celebration. I think it is growing as well.

Watered down the terrace and found crows ,blue rock pigeons coming to slake their thirst from the shallow puddles formed.(found a shikra sitting in a coconut tree nervously viewing the scene)

You may call it a "thanni party" with nature!!!

Just like that all of them stayed without fear of me and soaked up the cool breeze & water.

I have spotted more than 40 species of birds in the same place where a bungallow stood for more than 45 years surrounded by five mango trees,16 coconut trees,50 plantain trees,two chickoo trees,two mosambi trees, one lemon tree,couple of guva trees and many flower plants .

All greenery lost to make way for a concrete block of cement mixer which only absorbs and radiates heat.

I am only left wondering whether with regular watering the concrete block would grow further to project or lean into adjoining property !!!!

Wow! Heat is on for polls too???

A small joke to explain a Good Strategy:

A Famous Gynec was retiring and was passing the the show on to his son.[Period prior to scanning ...]

His son says "Papa, you are so well know for predicting it is Boy or Girl and 100% right eachtime. I do not have this ability and you did not share this Knowledge as yet...so, to tell you truthfully people will be disappointed hereafter as the reason they come for is lost."

Father," Son, it is very easy. Each time I check the mother. I say 'son' and write 'daugter' in my calender. Once the child is born and if it is a son they are excited!!! if it is a daughter, they come to me for clarification as to how I made this mistake, I check in front of them and show...'Daughter' written there. Later I apologize for making a mistake while telling..."!!!
------------------

So, Lk dearie, Go ahead make your predictions and raise the Heat more on CNK! However, write something else in your Golden Book of Predictions Pathway Inc. Ha haha ha I Predict you a Winner all the Way! And this is no Btw, for SF sake...

The rains were there yesterday, they are going to be there probably today as well. The grass has become green. The plants have NOT sprouted yet.

Padmaramasubban..that was lovely,.

But by Milagai (Mirchi) bajji, I also meant sitting in Delhi in the heat will make BG more hot and if he is 'Chidaoved' (nakkal panrathu), how he will react like the Milagai Bajji where Milagai was not salted properly..

I am only banking on one thing that BG being BG first will look for posts by SF(Jr), MB, SF(Sr) KR, Paddy, SS, Bratzy and then only will come to LK(g)..By that time the heat would have lost the effect na?

Wow the mangoes.

But, Nature's mystery. Mango generates heat in the body, but we get more of it only in the summer season when the body is heated already. But nature has its answer, if we can fry the mango seed and eat it, we will not have stomach pain. Moreover mangoes if eaten with the skin then also we will not get stomach pain.

sf anna,

All fruits to be washed thouroughly first and then consume it with skin wherever possible.

Dont overdo a particular fruit when it causes problems in stomach!

Belly full of jack fruit in another thread is to be remembered!This kind of gluttony causes stomach ache without fail!

Please learn to enjoy and tolerate the heat .

We learn to appreciate shade only when sun beats down remorselessly on earth!

We cant ask for very bright -hot sun shine in poles and same way we dont have cold and snow!

Nature has a way of balancing everything!

I have started keeping a small shallow vessel with water in terrace ,so that the birds can come and slake their thirst.

There is this crow which comes to my balcony everyday and creates a ruckus unless I feed the feller some tit bits.

We had a sweating 28 deg C yesterday. Had to switch the air conditioner on for a while in the night. The days have become longer. It is dawn at 5.30 AM and the night ( dark night) comes at 8.00 PM. This probably will extend to 8.30 PM in May.

The tulips came. There were three red ones and a some yellow ones. The Biology experiment has become a nice sapling. The rest of the seeds are still refusing to sprout.

The neighbor gave a "Omavalli Thazhai" branch. This is one of my favorite and that is being planted in a small pot.

KanagAmbaram is being sown as well. Have to look for Hibiscus. Last year had three of them and they all got frozen in the winter and died. This year have to be carefule in growing them.

Well yesterday I soaked up the heat running around and drove the bike in hotsun at 1.30pm afternoon!

To be honest all the folks were simply doing their own activity not minding the heat.

Came home had a nice bath at 10.30pm evening and relaxed a bit watching TV news in cool comfort of A/C!!!!!!

I realy thought how blessed we are that we can afford many things which the common man finds it as a luxury.

Cool shade is a luxury,cool breeze is a luxury,cool lime soda salt is a luxury,good transport bus is a luxury ,come to think of it all of it comes at a small cost and some are absolutly free from mother nature!!!

Heat is defined as a form of energy so soak it up and function energetically!

We are going to ride the heat waves only when others are riding waves of bombing at Srilanka !!??

Life itself is a miracle - so why question it. Accept it and jus be cool about it and u get the best from it.

The problem arises when people forget to play or be cool! And that affects thier health, their relationships and their family etc etc.

When u look at any problem in a detached way - u immediately find a solution as ur head rules ur body unlike the heart taking over and u make rash decisions in the heat of the moment and repent for the rest of your life. Hope each of us find our own COOL in the midst of all this HEAT.

The cucumbers have sprouted. Two of the 6 beans planted on the ground showed their head late last evening. The grass has grown, time to mow. But probably will do it on a weekday evening.

SF, so I am making my own cultured water.

Well in the sense, that I added a miracle grow solution(drops) to a liter of water and have placed that plastic "dubba" on a styrofoam plate that has my cabbage seeds on some tissue paper.

The plastic dubba has a small hole that will drip the water to plate as and when there is a water loss, the concept of pressure/ water tension and all those physics principles.

It has been three days. Will wait for some more time. This is only an experiment. But I will one day be able to find the trick.

I think my problem is I have the seeds without a "klingon" material like tiny pebbles

GR, there is this water absorbing crystals(which can abosrb water 5 times its size ) I vaguely remember, which was sold in india in one exhibition in chennai trade centre and this crystals could be mixed with sand and used a mixture in potted plants to avoid frequent/daily watering!

I do have one of those packets we got last time when we are at my other home country, Singapore.

My idea of hydroponics is to have a total water medium for growth. I think that is not going to that easy. But I will try that.

My take is, each one of us can do hydroponics without the commercial outlook. What I would call as a personal garden. All we need is a plastic container, the more transparent it is better, some Styrofoam(I forgot what we call this in India) to be used a floats.

For a start it is good to take the bean seeds, they do grow in water. Anything from the whole moong to channa to green beans. It is also good to make the kids indulge in such experiment with parent supervision.

The other one I found was from a site called "hydroponics university". That site claims we can use old fish tank to start something small. That is my next experiment.

The weather is still in the 50s and it is already half Spring. So need to see what can be done to grow some of these vegetables in my town.

Have you heard about panchagaviya.

it is a mixture of fresh cows dung ,fresh cows urine,curd,ghee,milk,etc, to be mixed in certain proportion (google it for more info) and one litre of this could be diluted many times and could be sprayed on plants to give superior results.

SF hats off to you for finding the link to water absorbent polymer!

GR if you are already familiar with water absorbent polymer granules then that is it!

Happy harvesting!

We had to switch the AC on only one day when the temp was about 80 deg F one night. But other than that the first flowers on most of the trees and plants are dropping off and the green leaves have started sprouting. To get the flowers off and let the leaves come out, it has been drizzling /raining on and off.

The cucumbers are getting f(l)attening their first leaves. The beans have sprouted four of them). The hydroponics is adamant. So I am going to use the egg carton and do another batch with different solution.

We on the other hand had the temps riaing to 70 and no coll breeze. Remember for us cool breeze is when it is Coool.

On the garden side, the last mowing was a kind of a disaster. The cut grass got stucj to the blades quite often because it was tall and wet.

Time to switch on the sprinkler system.

Hydroponics experiments are not fruitful. Leave alone being fruitful, the seeds are not even sprouting. But will not leave them until they sprout.

"Omavali Thazhai " courdesy bext door maLayALee neighbor, ha e started sprouting. She gave kanagAbaram seeds as well. Have to get some potting soil and plant that.

LK is somewhere in Mass last heard from her.

The cool weather in Bangalore is good to hear, the princess and the prince are going to be there next month with the queen. I am not worried much about the queen who was born and lived there most of her life and the island born prince. But the princess, the dainty lady is dainty and needs a cool weather to be cool.

Good to hear about the weather in chennai as well. See it is going to take atleast two months and a half before the good man reaches chennai and starts blabbering, but the signs are being shown that it will happen well ahead.

Oh! It is raining cats and dogs at bengaluru and mumbai.

The weather here in chennai looks still like a shocked cat!

We need to touch it again with a heated poker to galvanize it into action!

So from cool weather it is dull heat in chennai which makes people go about their activity mechnically as if in a trance !


But see Mumbai / bengaluru have heavy monsoon rains and only at its peak it causes problem on the road ,otherwise people go about their work as if not a drop of rain has fallen,a la buffalo!("erumai mattu melay mazhi paynjathu madheri")

No that was a joke. I wish I can say that. We have our problems with rain and snow.

The best place to see ( that to once way back in the 90's) the rain drain well is Singapore. The roads and streets are built with the rain taken into consideration, with proper drains for rain water. With all the construction now I doubt it is the same now.

If you are blessed with clear healthy skin and you roam in the hot sun without choice in a sales& marketting job you will understand the damage it causes to the skin!

Well there are people in this world who prefer a sunburnt body to project ruggedness!

But beyond a point sunlight is dangerous and it causes damage to skin apart from simple tanning.

That is the reason I prefer rains and more over a liberal dose of rains charges the mother earth to give out a explosion of colouful plants which inturn keeps us cool(both physically & mentally)

Yesterday we reached a very warm 70 deg which was good for the kids to go out and play.

The daylight came at around 4.45 AM and the night fell at around 8.30 PM

Today it is going to be scorching 90 deg F. The daylight came at 4.40 AM I think the night will fall around 8.35 PM

Had replanted two of my cucumber saplings. Thought they had very less sunlight. The beans are growing slowly. I think there is a cabbage or broccoli coming up( this is not from my experiments but the ones I had sown in the dirt).

Btw, the dirt is what the kids call the garden maNNu. Have to pick up this lingo when talking to the kids in the neighborhood.

on the weather man.
These predictions have become highly mathematical and the calculations are nearer to the 100% correctness over here.

They said it will rain, and it did rain last night. If at all IT is being used well, it is in the met department.

So did not switch the sprinkler ON. i did it on Friday. Oh btw, did I tel you with all these water our town still rations water that can be used with at the yard? Odd numbered houses are allowed to water the lawn only on wed.fri and sundays, the even numbers only on tue, thur and sat. Monday for none.

When I do come to India, I do not have the luxury to be inside A/C.

No ..Smiles ..now in Tamilnadu also weather predictions are almost correct when Ramanan gives the forecast. It is heard that during marriage times, Ramanan gets lots of calls from chennai Maami's to find out whether there will be rain and whether they can wear their costly pattu sarees.. So be proud.
Even out here in USA, the predictions are not 100% correct. Boston weather department announced , Sunday is going to be rainy day with thunderstorms. But Sunday turned out to be a hot sunny day with a bit of small drizzles here and there.

That made out Misty Aquarium visit wonderful where Sea Lions performance is too great. At one stage a big sea lion is made to pass near the audience and what a size, he/she had. The sea lions dance they jump into the water when the trainer tells and comes back to the trainer.

So please be proud Smiles.

Being at US you have to defend Indians.

The meteorological dept announced that its a depression and it will cross chennai region in next 24 hours. So heavy wind, rain and everything will follow. It was so much hot and after 5 days of cool weather it was today that we had such hot sun.

No wind, no rain, no thunder storm. This is what we call 100% opposite and that is the speciality of ours when you had atleast some drizzling here and there in US.

AhA,
A thunderstorm is usually not a "idiyudan koodiaya Mazhai" in the US. It is more like heavy wind and thunder. That's it.

It is just like how we over here say pavement as the road and platform is what you see or stand on the station. The ones you see on the road side is a Sidewalk.

It is about 45 deg F at around 6.30 AM on tuesday. Yesterday we had holiday. It was Memorial day where we are suposed to rememberthe soldiers who lost the lives in all wars that US had taken part. A Solemn occasion turned to a day of "celebrating" the Soldiers. Usually it comes over a weekend so it is a long weekend. It is also the coming of summer more or less. Hopefully the weather is going to warm up.

The sun has made things a little good. Yesterday the kids in the neighborhood were running around with water balloons. They has a nice pizza party at our home.

Had bought the lawn edge trimmer and tried it. My first attempt. Was not that bad.

Had bought a set of 4 solar lights and fixed and tested them. They are working good as well. The plants are doing fine except one cucumber sapling which kicked its bucket.


I think there are some pumpkin saplings that are coming from the seeds strewn from last years Halloween pumpkins. Have to see.

the game can have any number of players . . . one day i shall ask my mentor to teach you the game . . . . when we played the game at Chinchpokli station on platform number 1 we had some regulars . . . one girl spoke Tamil accented colloquial Marathi and we also had one Bihari lad who later went back to his gaon after fighting with his daddy to become a minister or something big big like that only . . . there also was a pair of twins, originally from a hamlet near Guntur, who picked garbage and collected empty cigarette packs to recover the metal foil that they sold to a local Marwadi resmelter . . . . incidentally that Marwadi's son sometimes joined us for a game or two and he was very humble and never showed off that his daddy owned nothing and borrowed money to pay rent for the shop and borrowed money to buy scrap and borrowed money to give loans to poor people and earned high interest from them that helped him to pay low interest on the monies he borrowed from a local community cooperative bank where his brother-in-law was a trustee . . . . . ah! there was one more little girl who always cried when she lost and her mother always reminded her that she must not cry just as Kasturba Gandhi, who was also from their native place called Porbandar, never cried . . . . i recall that the mother of the cigarette packet collector from Guntur always told the boy to learn to sing on the local trains to better his lifestyle and cited the example of the singer daughter of the great Aghoranath Chattopadhyaya, scientist and philosopher who was the founder of the Nizam College, forgetting that the professor though in Hyderabad was originally a Bengali . . . . sigh! i always cry when i remember those beautiful days we spent playng KOIBA!

Boss,

All children who were from poor families dont turnout to be pick pockets ,chain snatchers,thugs or goondas.

I know a person who came from a poor yadhava community whose parents were not even graduates,but this person is a graduate now successfully running a pharma biz and providing lively hood to many in his family tree.This person I am referring to cannot speak a full sentence properly in english eventhough I encourage him to try the same.Some of the qualites h exihibits and the dedication,devotion,commitment he shows towards doing welfare to all in different people in many communities makes him shine well above the so called educated people in the society.This person is my partner in business for the last 5 years and is at the ripe age of 34 years.


So, please note my calling you KOIBA Mafia is a compliment to you to admit openly your happy learning in a platform and that too when you are very nostalgic about the experience.

It is indiscriminate exploitation of natural resources that has ruined the environment.

Atlease we woke up at right time to preserve what we have.

We have in the name of industrialisation caused irreversible damage to environment like leather tannery letting out wastes to cause permanent damage to ground water table.

We dont live along with nature. we are against nature.

We have been shielded with technology and medicines. We have been relying on Air-conditioners or water heaters. we have been traveling by fligh, ship, train etc.,

Just tell me where are living with nature. We dont have much difference with machines. Humans have life where machines dont. thats the difference. we have been living like machines with life.

This heat is not against us. This is a warning for us. Atleast we have to wake up or we have to sleep for ever.

MB how can you say that?
if one wants to be with Nature then where and when will we start to be a developed entity.

Also if Nature had wanted it would have made all of us to be, I don't know, inanimate? nonliving?

It did not.

It is natural to mutate and newer forms to evolve.

It is also natural to be in a teeny weeny part of nature,which is us, that work as a trigger/catalyst to such mutations.

We complain about everything, like I do here,without realizing that it is our needs and wants that is triggering any form of change.

Can we curtail progress to stop the changes in Nature?

The only way we can support Nature is to live with it as is.

We can, for that matter, as a start, stop information overload. If there is no exchange of ideas, there is no progress in a society and therefore that society will live for, by and of Nature

Precisely Senthil. Precisely. And that is my point. one can keep blaming others for all the atrocities while ourselves we do not care if we are against the Nature in big or small way.

And that is why I said, play it along. If we really care, then hold our needs and wants at bay and make ourself an example to others to follow by showing the sustenance effectively.

Any restriction to growth is not an answer to "be with Nature" at all. For, if we stop an industry, then thousands of people get affected.

Well one way is we all draw our own lines. That will sustain us and not look at the lines others have drawn and complain/ follow.

Because there will always be disparity. The place , time factors this.

For example let us take cars. Do we really need them in a places where the transportation is excellent? No we do not. But are we like that?

Do we need leather in warm climates? No But we have them. don't we?

Do we need to know and learn everything and at all times? No.
Agala oozhavadhai vida , Azha oozhvadhu mael.

But then why did they say,

you see what I am driving at?

To tell you one thing. If everything is organised in a proper way and if we are against our nature always we go and meet the fault.

May be we are practiced to face the evil things and we convince ourselves that we dont have alternate.

Mudiyum endral ellam mudiyum. Mudiyadhunu sappa kattu kattina edhuvumae mudiyadhu.

To tell you one thing
oruvanukku oruthinu ulagam irundhal chances of AIDS are little. But we still we search for remedy to cure aids. I agree there should be a remedy for aids but to save the innocent people who are affected and not to save the people who purposely err.

Likewise innocent people should be saved from the nature's fury not the ignorant beings.

No one knows how aids came. There is a whole length of arguments on this in SD par I.

Like I said, if they are innocent then why show/entice them with all goodies and make them migrate ?

My question is how can we ever define Nature separating us from it? Aren't we part of it and in it. Isn't every action of ours part of what is to be done and will be done?

Over here, it started raining last sunday, beginning of this week. It lasted till thursday afternoon as predicted. Then a glorious sunshine for 5 hours from 1P to 6 PM yesterday. So mowed the lawn. Many of my colleagues when we were discussing the weather were worried tha we need a sickle to cut the grass.

Turned out that it took me 2.5 hours to mow. The grass is green and neat now. It also gave me a 2.5 hrs workout, The beans and other plants had drunk a lot of water that they need to evaporate them. Coming days at least the weekend seems to be good.

On saturday many families are meeting at a stare park welcoming the summer.

one can only wish PR. It does not do until I stop blabbering or we do really have a person with no good deeds over here.

This is what they call us, one man's nectar is others poison, I persume.

Yesterday, saturday, was a lovely day for picnic. We. about 6 families were at the state Park near my office. The park is called Cochituate State Park. It has places for BBQ and a lake for boating. It also has a beach. By the way, over here lakss have beach contrary to what we say/see as beach in India.

Each family had made a food item. The food included, lemon rice, yougurt rice(thayir sAdham),chips,three flavors of chicken (BBQ),vegetable and panneer BBQ,potato curry. For drinks we had coffee and tea. And then fruites, watermelon,bananas.

The weather was excellent around 80 def F till 4.30 PM. The kids were out playing at the beach and water, The adults were playing frisbee, football(American),volleyball and throwball.

At 4.30 PM the weather suddenly started to cool down. And so no boating was allowed in the lake. Once all packed and came, there was a downpout and the lawn\ deck is still wet,

The weather at around 7 AM in the morning on sunday. now, is at 56 deg F and is cloudy. It will improve with day progressing.

One of the beans has borne the fruit of labor with two little beans. The Tomato is waking up. I think the eggplant and the zucchini and the "whatever plant that is" are growing as well.

We are at 54 deg F at around 7.00 AM in the morning on a sunday. But that will warm up pretty good. This weekend we are expecting the temp to shoot to 90 deg F. Man that is heat.

Did I boast about the beans? One of the plant gave about 10 beans already. Just plucked them, washed and ate them. Nothing like fresh vegetable. The tomato plant, which I thought gave up on me, did not. there is one small, tiny tomato. But I guess I won't be in US at the time it ripens.

Yes Senthil,
Enjoying the cool and welcome showers. Morning it had been quite hot and then when the dark clouds gathered quickly and evening when the rains came down with lots of thundering - the whole place looks fresh and clean. What a wonderful way to spend an evening curled down cosily at home nursing a mug of hot chocolate and eating hot spicy peanuts and watch the rains happily cleaning the roads and making everything look pristine.

Senthil Anna ..KR can be compared to a Peahen and it is never the dance of Pea Hen appreciated and it is always the Peacoks with his blue and green feathers dancing gets applause. Hence, KR is compared to the beautiful rainbow.

Moreover, suppose I take the example of Pea cock dance, then there could be possible objections from elite, senior citizens stating that the dance of pea cock is adult subject.

No one , simply no one , none , zilch believed in me. But Mother had to keep up with what one of her son was blabbering.

just to prove to other siblings of his. It rained when I landed in Bangalore, It rained the next day when I was about to leave to Chennai.

Chennai experienced rain every evening. As though to confirm my blabbering each morning.

The Function , SadhAbhishekam, meaning the 80th birthday for my father went off well. Altogether there was four days of function at home.

Left to Trichy the next day after the function, only to be recieved by lightning (first time I have seen streakes hitting the ground in India) till Lalgudi. Trichy was a pleasant trip. The water in Cuavery (vaykaal) at gunaseelam was about waist deep. More about that in a separate what I liked \disliked about India.

Came back to Chennai to be acknowledged by rain the next three evenings. Went to Bangalore to be acknowledged by, well, the rain of course. Came back to Chennai, rained again. Packed did final purchases got ready to leave at 4 AM the next day.

Had a pleasant flight back to Boston.

It is Raining in Boston.

ie. Weather and even when KR deviated from her favourite topic weather, our Arjuna is bent upon sticking to the topic which by this time should have become a 'Sticky' one if Princi has seen the number of 'attention' it is getting.

We had an excellent Labor Day weekend. This time the weekend, instead of a Forday, saturday and sunday came as saturday , sunday and monday, giving us a early release from office by 3 PN oi fridsy.

The four of us, the 2 royal kids and the wife and husband, planned and visited Niagara falls, a drive of about 450 miles (one way) in our official Rath ( A toyota Corrolla).

The Weather was so nice (70-80 ceg F) through out the trip. Stayed 2 nights at Holiday inn. Walked to all places in Niagara Falls park.


Then good sumptuous Indian food. The dinner at Bombay Bistro. A buffer.

The next day
Excellent 70 deg F clear sky and sunshine no clouds weather.

Everyone enjoying the last days of summer in this season.

We are technically into Fall season from 8th Sepy.

Had a breakfast buffet at the restaurant at Holiday inn.

Walked around and went to the Maid of the Mist.

Had a beautiful boat ride at the Maid of Mist. In this the boat takes you on a ride near to both falls(the canadian and the US) resulting in more of a Maid of the DRENCH than Mist actually.

Then walked to the famous Punjabi Hut for a lunch buffet. The place gives the freshest Chappathis in town. Had nice buffet.

In the evening walked to the Cave of the Winds. What a spectacular view of Niagara falls. Had a wait of about 2 hrs in the line to walk to the falls( Literally). Took the princess to touch and get drenched in the falling water. Never have experienced this in India. Have never been to KutrAlam. But here in Niagara have done it twice. Took the pirnce to the get drenched in the falling water.

The next day, monday. Started at around 10.00 AM and drove back to the palace.

Wow GB!
What a narration! Feel I too was there along with my kids :) getting drenched and stuffing ourselves with all that food.
Unfortunately, in India - especially here in particular - we don't make such weekend or extended weekend trips. The very thought of waiting in long Qs in any of the Amusement Parks in this weather makes us all feel its better to stay and cool indoors :( Even long distance drives always ends in getting on each others' nerves and we are happier at home then outside!

In India -Chennai we are fond off cribbing about weather and there are 1001 exotic places we have not seen which is not very far off from our own city.

We believe in going to gym to sweat it out when all that is required is to walk in the neighbour hood for 30 minutes to keep our health.

It is hot for 4/5 months in chennai and rest of the year is good ,sunny and bright.When you have A/C even a hot day could be tackled easily and many days all that is required is a mere fan .

We need to conserve power today so switch off electricty at 9 PM to join the campaign 999999.

I can any day tolerate heat than a freezing bone chilling day which makes one shiver even with layers of thermal wear.

Well,
I think one of the best things that happen in the US is just that weekend trips and weekend get together s.

Most of us seldom miss out on both. It is usually weeken travels in the three season spring, summer and fall. The winter is for the get together.

Also are the other social activities. Many of the Indian kids who learn some kind of arts like barathanatyam have their arangetrams in summer. Then comes dussera( navarathiri). The temple gets involved.

Fall ends with Halloween night and then starts our countdown for the coming of Santa Claus.

I think it is possible in India as well, the northies do this if I am correct. When I did do the bangalore-chennai road trip it was so good. Peak summer, still the kids enjoyed. I did not drive.

One can go to mahabalipuram by car or a train trip in India.
Train journeys were so nice this time. My kids had long train journeys esp those in the aternoons.

Driving is a pleasure in US once you are out of busy cities. GPS gadgets helps to take the burden of lost direction sybdrome.

The first of fall showers have started. These showers help the leaves to be shed by the trees. These usually are followed by the wind gust sometime at the end if fall season and the trees become Botak(malay for bald). Nature helps the trees to survive the snow. We are expecting a milder winter than last year.

We had four of them out of which two had grown really well to harvest.

Surprisingly there were two days of snow. It is still Fall season here. One should see the fall colors . Excellent crimson reds, yellows, oranges combination of green,yellow, orange, and reds on the leaves.

The time has come for the trees to shed their leaves. The yard is full of wet leaves.

The beans had come alright. We had two more harvested yesterday. The temperature has dropped to the 50's. The Daylight period is slowly reducing. It gets dark by 6.30-7.00 PM now a days and is still dark at 6.15 AM today.

Ha, Spring is coming this saturday. This is the official start of spring. The temp actually has warmed up. We had what we call as the Noreaster, a totally drenching rain before the spring season. This, the Nature does, perhaps, to clear all the salt,sand leftovers from the snow clean up and bring the rest of the dead leaves off the trees. The trees have started sprouting new leaves, a clear sign of spring.

Ah, and the temp a bright sunny 50-60 past two days in the day and a cool 30-40 in the night. Yeah, of course I am talking in Fahrenheit.

We have changed the time as well. Remember we fall back in time , putting our clocks one hour behind(to its natural state).Now we have sprung forward. So the time difference changes as well.

It is 7.17 PM EST and is still bright.

Excellent weather. The grass have turned green, cherry trees blossomed and the firey yellow flowers came. Many of these trees and shrubs bloom before they start growing their fresh leaves.

Mulched the lawn a little bit, Mulch holds water so it is good.

Tuips came by themselves. For all the color they have, these bulbs are really growing like weeds. You plant in one place and the next year they sprout in other places as well.

This year, planted some giant tomatoes, have to see what size these will grow, some onions. Some red chilli. Have a small kit to grow all necessary ingredients for a mexican salsa.

Southies always are known for their brand loyalty and hence you can find that

detergent (of any brand ) is always asked by the servant as 'konjam surf kodumma'

Toothpastes are always colgate

even most of the houses are loyal to Hamam soap that is why Hamam is having its Grahapravesham offer only for
south India.

What a difference What a difference
in the past 3 days.
Two days back swirched on the air conditioner because the temo in the night was 80 deg. Tonight it is 54 deg.

The seeds are growing. There is a huge bunch of lettuce growing. The Salsa vegetables have got 10 seedlings.

For showing the kids , I have put 4 peas into a glass cylindrical tube( something like a single flower vase). Actually had some kitchen tissue inside it and made the peas sandwiched between the inner wall and the tissue. Remember the days of bean seed germination experiment? Two of them have started sprouting with roots. I have one more such with watermelon seeds, Have to see how that one grows.

Marigold seeds have been strewn in some parts of the garden yet to see them growing. I think the sunflower seeds that were strewn from last year;s flowers are sprouting.

Tulip season is over in most areas here. One can see empty stalks.
