Down the memory lane – Arisikkara Theru

Baby Ammal and Lokambal. Can u forget Radio Supervisor of Kasiammal colony or Valambal Mami. What about Palakkadai (fruit stall)veedu Sathyavadi. Pasupathi Vaathiyar and Nurse veedu.

 Meena maamis children Chandra, Ramani and seenu. Your friends Kulothungan and Kuthalam.

Velvadi aatha and Veeranar koil are the things u cannot forget.

The Maargazi is kindling the smell of Perumal Koil pongal which is hard to come from the plate to our hand.

On seeing the Arisikkara theru house the sankara chitthappas lesson to u of Oosi moonji mooda neeya enakku arivurai solvathu is sounding in my ears.

The sounds of adhir vettu and poikkal kudhirai sound and Pattis 10 paise for Javvu mittai and peee oodhal in Naadiamman Thiruviza are going to diturb my tonights sleep.

Kudhirai vandi saptham will bring the sight of Chithapps arrival from Bombay and Poona.

Remember the cinemas played by Radio Officer where Sivaji sings singanatham kekkuthu seena naadham oduthu.

The shifting of the house brought curtains to all these and opened doors to next in our life. See this in my next  letter.
