Nageshwararao Park – Mylapore – Chennai

நாகேஸ்வரராவ் பார்க் – மயிலாப்பூர் சென்னை

Childhood thoughts:

It was a sin to visit a park, what i have heard from my family and never visited one.

Teenage thoughts:

Lets be a part of the sin 🙂

SMA Razvi, one of my best shool days friends visited this place with his family and found a girl that he admired and wanted to find her house. Thatz how I knew this place. This is the single thought I had when I heard the word Nageshwararao park.

I have seen it from a distance, Walked with Sudha when we were in school around Nageshwararao park but never thought of going inside, Just thought it was another park. (May be)

Scouting and a reason to go to parks:

When my baby wanted to get out of the house, other than the beach in chennai was this park. I was amazed the way to see the park, the same one that I have walked besides it each day, from my dear mylapore to every part of the city.

When I started digging more on this park, learned a lot of things that brought my childhood back.

One of the pleasuere places in Mylapore.

Lamasa clay work

Clay has now changed me lesuire time to the most dedicated and kid like learning experience.

None of the clays are available in India, hence I have to get the raw material from the hardware shop and start preparing the clay, normally takes a overninght to get ready. Way ready when its soft.

Aarthi from PolyCraft academy was my trainer in Chennai when i took my core leave in May 2010.

You can find them @ –

Trip 2 AAraku Valley

A family of 4 (Abhi & Ravi, Arun & Nalini, Bala & Anitha, Sudha & Satya, Swetha) plan a trip to Aaraku Valley, a hill station, 110kms far from Visakhapatnaam(Vizag) in Andhra-Pradesh.

We started around 6:06 PM on 26th Dec 2008, to catch the 6:25 train and found out that was a morning train and waited till 6:45PM for the other train and then moved to Secundradab railway station, boarded the train to Vizag.

The first place we visited was the beach at Vizag, sexy as it can be with snails and crabs all over crawling our path and bet you swetha my doll enjoyed it like anything. We used the local boat to travel in the sea for 200 meters and back, it was a real amazing exp for all.

We toured on the rope car and moved all around Vizag, a dream place to be along. Where you see the Mountains, water and the cool breeze all over, the sun did not kill us and the beach dint smell like the one in Chennai, Marina. The sand was clear with no dirt, people enjoyed the beach, the water, the sun, the sand and the small creatures that moved here and there. Swethu was busy understanding them and collecting shells. She wanted to ride the horse that we had to postpond after a while since we had to visit a lot of other places.

Then we hit the Deluxe Hotel for the lunch and then roamed down a bit to do some shopping. We also hit the aquarium and the Borra Caves. Borra caves were really good to watch. Have a look at the pics.
