Thanks Mr. Ravi,
As we people who live abroad are unable to celebrate our wonderful festivals, I request on behalf of all abroaders that you all celebrate all the festivals and offer the prayings for us too. Its really painful to miss all our festivals, families, relatives, friends.....
I wish you all a Happy Diwali again.

Gopenath.

Thanks to EB Hari & Gopenaths's kind words on the festival of Lights.

Nice of you both.

In line with bursting Crakers and Enjoying delicious sweets, as usual in all Diwali festivals, this year Diwali had a slightly different pictures also.

Some of them are:

1. Owing to low tea prices several houses in different hatties had tough time. The court cases on tea prices are dragging on. The quantum of joy seen in the faces was too meagre to be proud about.

2. It is startling to read that, Rs 60 Crores plus, collected on TASMAC stalls in Coimbatore Dist as Diwali sales.

3. One of the District Revenue Officers pointed in a small town like Manjoor the diwali collection is Nearly Rs 1 Crores for 3 days.

[ Are we kudimagan's really Poor ?!? ] -

Well - there were, if not aberrations, few of our fellow brothern, were happily swaying to sides of the roads, [ Should we call it TASMAC Effect ? ]

At one end we are crying hoarse about poor Nilgiri Economics & On the other hand we see the record collections at Tasmac.

Sometime back one of our Kudimagans was proud that Vijay Mallya's [ United Breweries] contribution of Golden doors and roofs to Sabarimalai, is purely contribution from people like him !. Oh! what a fact ! -

Heard from one of the quarters. ....... [ Kal [Toddy] Aanalum Kanavan - Full Aanalum Purushan - [b]Half [/b]Aanalum Anna/Thamma ?!?]

Somehow, I don't understand the logic. Only in streaking liquid , the measurements are quarter -180 ml / Half - 370 ml / and Full - 780 ml. Is that so? May be when you gulp it your eyes sees everything is double OK!

Let us say again and again Ondhu Savira Hagali [ The TASMAC owner/contractor makes it a reality with our happy CONTRIBUTIONS].

Cheers[?!?]

Dear Anna,
Thank you for your comments.
You are always right in your views. The problem is that people never think the significance of the festivals. For example, Diwali is to celebrate the day which Lord Krishna destroyed the demon Naragasura. The inner meaning is that Naragasura was a man with full of ego, evil thoughts, anger,lust and so on. So when Lord Krishna destroyed him it really means that God destroys ego, bad thoughts, anger, lust,desires and so on.
So it really means that on this auspicious day we all should pray the Lord and give up these type of characters which includes ego, bad thoughts, anger and other things. In other words destroy the Naragasura in each of us.
When we know the reality and significance of the festivals, then we do not need money to purchase new clothes, there is no need of sweets, and there is nothing to spend. So even when there is a fall in our tea price we still can enjoy the festival.
But our poor people dont understand these values of festivals and they always think that Diwali means HOSA BATTE ETHI, KOI KODHU, PATTASU BEETHU, THANNI HAAKKI JOLLYA ORAGODHU. ( There is no intention for me to hurt any one but i just tell the fact.)
Now its true with your fact that our KUDIMAGANS always make a record break.
Any way we shall always pray for our brothers and sisters that they come out from the tight situation from falling tea price and lead a peaceful life.

Gopenath.
