Guindy children’s park

January 23, 2009

I have travelled in Chennai Adayar several times, but not even once I have stopped to go inside the Crocodile Park which is there. Though I have seen Crocodile parks in many zoos around the world, my only recollection of seeing them in Chennai are in my school days at Guindy National Park.I first visited children’s park at guindy in 2005.

My first preference to go to that park was to see snake park which is just adjacent to children’s park. Right from my childhood, i was very much intrested in seeing snakes in t.v channels. When i came to know that many types of snakes and pythons are shown in snake park, i couldn’t stop from visiting that place. Me and my friend’s  spent nearly  1 hour in snake park and 3 hours in children’s park.

spectacled-cobraThis is the spectacled cobra which is considered dangerous. Many college students came there , and made the cobra respond to their acts. They showed a hand kerchief to the cobra and waved that kerchief in such a way that it got irritated and hissed on the glass. They did it in a funny way. But it is always advised , not to mis act with poisionous creatures.

Guindy national park can be said as the only national park  which is in the heart of a metropoliton city. As soon as we enter the guindy national park,we find a few toy’s shop,icecream shops ,cool drinks shop and a small snacks shop. But inside the children park,we dont find any food stalls and so it is advisable to take food and water along with us. It is said that more than 30 species of trees are grown here.deer-eating-popcornJust when we are moving inside the snake park, two spotted deers were keeping their heads outside their meshed area. My friend just showed her popcorn to the deer, and the deer ate the popcorn with most excitement. Deers are almost friendly with every one.

peacock-hiding-its-head This female peacock felt shy to give pose for photo.

white-peacock So i turned towards the white peacock and tooks a few snaps of these white peacocks.

The place is also quite spread out and neatly maintained. The Entry fee for Indians – Adults (Rs.30), Children (Rs.20), Still Camera (Rs.20). The place is worth going with your friends… The place is also quite spread out and neatly maintained. The Entry fee for Indians – Adults (Rs.30), Children (Rs.20), Still Camera (Rs.20).

Chennai Sangamam

January 16, 2009

chennai sangamam

What is Chennai Sangamam? India is a land of culture.So there are hundreds of things that act as a back bone which makes our country stand in our own culture.Well when we talk about india’s culture,every state has its own religious type of culture.Likewise in Tamilnadu we have lots of festivals which portays our culture.But the only Festival of India that belongs to people of all religions, as well as to the non-believers. The harvest fest of Tamil antiquity – The Pongal re-discovering itself as urban thanksgiving. It’s Chennai Sangamam. More than 3000 performers ignited the spirit of Chennai for seven days with around 4000 performances. All in parks, streets and beaches. From January 10-16, 2009. This is a longest and biggest Open Festival of India.

The thing i liked in chennai sangamam was the performers from the various parts of tamilnadu.The important thing is that most of the performers are from some rural parts of the state.The performance were really cool and very touching.My house is in Besant Nagar ,Thank god!! they also orgainsed ter show in Elliots beach.I went their with my friend SHILPA .The performance that i saw was Silambatam,Karakatam,Villupattu……..You know something friends the last day performance was finished by my favourite drummer SHIVA MANI …I loved that performance,really mind blowing performance…

The reason why Chennai Sangamam is held during the Thai season is that it is a way of thanksgiving to the urban people. Generally, Pongal is more popular in agrarian lands and villages, but not so popular in urban areas.But anyways friend’s this pongal was all setted to mega festivity with unlimited galatta and enjoyement, Chennai rocked this Pongal,without doubt 😆 .
