    Default Day 3 - 5

    I am continuing this thread after a gap. Sorry as usual due to personal and official work. But this time with good hope I completed this travelogue as half backed

    C Tiruppur Railway Station, Tiruppur District

    D Hotel Tamilnadu, Ooty, The Niligiri District

    E Coimbatore District



    Unfortunate thing is I lost 2nd and 3rd Day photographs completely. Before trip starts Ananth T E gave me an advise me to carry laptop to do backup for Photography, my mistake I didnt do that. So tried with pen drive to do back up and while raining it got wet completely since I kept it in the packet unknowing. Matter of fact I was in the scheduled plan to reach at the fixed time each district I was unable to cover most of the attractive place and even if I was there I didnt get time to capture many photographs. I am considering this trip as a token for each district so will starts to explore each district one by one on monthly basis. Lets see. I do many rides from Chennai to Bangalore. I thought that the roads which connecting the districts will have a road like Chennai - Bangalore road or at least good road conditions. But expected all odds and evens in this trip while planning. Then it was completely mess up and I have travelled more in two way roads than 4 way roads. And I can say road conditions are not bad and not soo good. Thank Yamaha R15 I didnt face any trouble regard its condition and performance throughout the trip. I did a complete service at Nagercoil after crossing 1500 kms aprox.

    The below picture is not a ordinary fire.

    Default Day 6 - 8

    While crossing Madurai district there was some problem between the two local village people. So road was blocked and people got mad and started throwing stones on the vehicles (Cars, Buses and bikes). Police came in which made things better and I approached police that I have to cross this people who blocked this road as crowd. Police didnt allow me to go. Then you know what happened. There my camera helped me very well. I took out the camera and I was slowing moving my bike towards the village people who were sitting on the road and blocked the road completely. Village Youngsters came to and said I should not pass through the road until the issue solves Then I said I am for PRESS and I should take photographs to publish in the todays news paper J with out asking any further question people started giving pose and telling about the issues. Then I got a gap to pass over the crowd and for the sake of lie I look some photographs while crossing and escaped from that place.

    Kanyakumari to Rameshwaram was a scary ride for me because it was raining and that too night there wont be any road side lights at least one in half a kms distance, two sides of the road are very dark. There is no a sign of frequent vehicles and very few will come and cross with high beam light will make me as blind in the middle of the road. If anything happens like breakdown or something you have to wait for the sunlight to at least ask for help.

    Jaggery and sugar are Indias gifts to the world!

    I do not know how many of you know this that India pioneered the sugar making technique. Harold McGee, the author of entertaining and educational cookbook The Science and Lore of the Kitchen describes in detail how thousands of years ago, India enamored the world with the taste and technique of sugar making. This is the first spice that was exported from India. These ancient traditions still continue and along with sugar, Jaggery is also prominently used in Indian cooking.
    On the way form Madurai to Tenkasi I had a excellent chance to visit a small Jaggery factory where I spend some time to see the complete process of making the Jaggery using juice of Sugarcane.

    Photographs will explain the process:

















    Thiruvannamalai was my last district. After that via Tindivanam high road I reach Chennai a day before itself. I should explain more on each and every districts and I think I can do better on travelogues in the upcoming trips.
