Kingfisher !


Amidst city’s cacophony, concrete structures, airconditioners, hangling clothes – one could easily miss such beauties !! – grouped as  *Coraciiformes*  -   colourful birds including the kingfishers, the bee-eaters, and more.


Storks ! நாரை விடு தூது

Storks are large, long-legged, long-necked wading birds with long, stout bills.

பழம்படு பனையின் கிழங்கு பிளந்தன்ன

பவளக் கூர்வாய்ச் செங்கால் நாராய்

- நாரை விடு தூது - சத்திமுத்தப் புலவர்.

Oh Butterfly !!

 Thikku Theriyatha kattil’ (in a forest lost in directions) was also the name of a hit movie released in 1972 starring Muthuraman and Lakshmi … a song 

‘பூப்பூவா பறந்து போகும் பட்டுப்பூச்சி அக்கா - நீ

பளபளன்னு போட்டிருப்பது யாரு கொடுத்த சொக்கா’  

– a child asking the butterfuly as to who gave it such a beautiful shirt ! – was a grand hit of yesteryears.

HIndu High School staff

 Pre-script .. a photo taken during Sree Ramanavami 1 purappadu this evening at Thiruvallikkeni. 

Triplicanites would know the person with shirt – Sri Govindan, too well, for his enthusiastic flag-waving during thiruther.  He worked in Hindu High School as Office assistant, and seeing this might bring lot of memories of Hindu High school students. 

the waiting Cat !!

  Testing   waters !   - rather eyes, waiting to come back to FB and social media !!
