I saw him in Chennai...( ha ha why limit him to triplicane?)

I had no tears in my eyes, nor words in my heart.
No thanks to tell or prayers to part
I stood there seeing him, He saw me, stood tall.
The shell, the crown, the flowers and all.
In his feet I've fallen before, I fell today, to mark my day..
Never shew my pain or glee, for nothing I've retained to say.
The murmuring chants, my legs that walked
My folded hands , were sacraments I talked
Heavy became my load, and gathering all pieces.
For a while I'd rest, as my journey seems endless...

மீனமர் பொய்கை நாள் மலர் கொய்வான்  வேட்கையினோடு சென்றிழிந்த
கானமர் வேழம் கைஎடுத்தலற கரா அதன் காலினை கதுவ
ஆணையின் துயரம் தீரப் புள்ளூர்ந்து சென்று நின்று ஆழி தொட்டானை
தேனமர் சோலை மாடமாமயிலை திருவல்லிக்கேணிக் கண்டேனே ..

திருமங்கை அழ்வர்

( I saw him in triplicane. .. thirumangai azhwar..)


  1. sometimes journeys are so long when carrying a burden but those journeys don't last forever and when they are over you are that much stronger!

    beautiful write, adithyasaravan!

  2. Faith & Patience Are The Two Main Ingredients In Such A Situation. Constant Balance of Swings With Faith & Patience, Helps To Hold And Improve Much Better Level of Self-Confidence And Hope.

    Its Said That, One Who Believes Deeply And Constantly Worship Almighty, Almighty Keeps Testing Us. I Heard This From One of My Cousin Uncle, Who Is The Writer of Divine Satcharitra. You Can Check This Satcharitra On His Blog Too. Here Is The Link,


  3. Thank you for your most kind comment, really appreciated.


  4. Gave me goosebumps when I read this post.Born in Triplicane and I have had His darshan countless times,I know the ambience. Your post was touching.
    Thanks immensely

  5. vallah..super yar..know what? i am born and brought up in triplicane..esp v grew up in bharathiyar veedu..gr8 days those ya...good post boss..cheers

  6. Thank you for your comment , yes I suppose all rivers are the same but the memories are not,

  7. thanks yvonne.. memories may fade, waters may dry up.. yet fresh streams flow with the onset of rainy seasons..
    @ hope..but sometimes i fear that we may carry those callosities to our heart..
    @ creativity.
    belief and constant worship.. I can never run away from it..It became part of my life..If there is no god , I will create one for myself.
    @ KPartha. Blessed are you to have the darshan of him countless times..Indeed like kulashekara azhwar who yearned to be born atleast as a stone, or a tree in tirumalai, I too hope, that i will be able to see him as many as times in his divya desams.. ichchuvai thavira yaan poi indira logam aalum, achchuvai perinum venden, arangamaa nagarulaanae..
    @ Ramesh..
    I glanced bharatiyar veedu with reverence whenever i chanced to walk over there.. i did my postgraduation in triplicane, in Gosha hospital. Those days I was ignorant of Parthasarathy..

  8. oook..
    actually i had to go through all the comments to esply that of KP sirs and ramesh's to get a full picture... maybe if i could understand tamil things would have been easier...


  9. @ deeps..
    aha.. now that requires a big explanation. yes indeed i posted this as soon as i came from chennai. So couldn't translate the tamil verse. moreover it is a complicated one laced with mythical story.(the summary is that I saw the lord in triplicane, who saved an elephant that cried in distress)..can you imagine i went to chennai for summer vacations?!..But sort of we went there because we had our friends there ..
    then regarding this.. this time i was so indifferent., I never follow rituals or signs, just some personal talking.. I never did that now, just gossiped the whole time there, with friends ,wife and kid. never stood in a trance in front of him.. Just that, are you OK, I'm Ok sort of thing..probably this is also good, and soon I'll come out of this heady religious opium..ha ha..

  10. that was nicely written. u seem an introvert person.liked it
