Yesterday (05.11.10) was Deepavali (Light Festival) when people buy new clothes for themselves and their children an go out on visits and on outings to films and fun places. I went to a friend's (wife's colleague) seashore bungalow and then for a movie Uthamaputhiran (a very good man). A lighthearted comedy worth seeing to pass away the time. Had lunch at a food court. Spent some time on the beach and took pictures of some riff-raff. Rested, set off some fire works (nothing spectacular), had a buffet dinner and returned home.
I was born in Thanjavur in Tamil Nadu in India and went to Burma (now Myanmar) in 1954 and lived there for 9 years returning to India in 1963 when I went to Karaikal in the State of Pondichery to finish my schooling at St. Mary's High School. Did my Pre-University in St. Joseph's College, Trichy and then went on to do my Engineering (Civil) in the Thiagaraja College of Engineering, Madurai.
Subsequent to my education I joined the Public Works Department of the Government of Tami Nadu as a Junior Engineer and rose to the rank of a Joint Chief Engineer and retired in September 2006.
Now I spend my time with my iPad, my PC, my Books and my Music System.
