been having a lot of fun reading


the adyar times…

read and learn

1. “adyar cabs” doesnt have branches. they’ve put this msg way above their phone number, way way above cards are accepted. that they have ac and no ac vehicles. perish that thought that adyar cabs has branches.
2. yuvan shankar is performing in *sigh* KL; i dont know one song off hand that he’s famous for, but *sigh* KL, I miss you a lot…
3. Sweatha Electronics is giving “spot cash” for Ac’s, geysers, motors, fridges even in “dead condition” the “wanted” section there’s a big ad for an expert wanted for 1- to-1 Maths Tutor fora class XI, cbse student: must be “motivational”, says the ad. heck to deal with CBSE motivational wont do evangelical would be better.

here’s the cover photo that i quite liked…

this photo is about a joint family in besant nagar. meenakshi guides her daughters i law saradha, shantha, vasanthi, uma and lekshmi in preparing sweets etc. her granddaughter vidya and great grand daughter shivani are also in the team…
(me thinks shivani’s ears should be tweaked for nearly stepping on those crispy looking shankarapalles)

but the editorial was about festivals in the metro being passe and that no one makes sweets at home.

  1. This sort of thing IS dying out, though, isnt it? It’s a shame… aAlthough, to be fair, I don’t think I’D want to slave in front of a hot stove, deep-frying things. I’d so much rather be on the eating team! 🙂

    • it’s alive and well in the desis in Kuala Lumpur.

      but here, shyam, the big stores like krishna sweets, and a2b arent allowing anyone cook at home.
      krishna rented out avm rajeshwari and was having a three-day pre-deepavali, chuda chuda sale. how would anyone resist?

      everyone has their own niche store where they buy bakshanams…

      we even had deepavali presents from cookieman(!)

  2. It is passe in Chennai, why didn’t anybody tell me that? Why have I been laboring over the stove making 4 kaarams and 4 sweets? Figures, I am always the last to know 😦

  3. why only the wimmins i say? the menz should also learn all this no?

    there is a huge poster down our lane which says ‘many many sweet movements’ to some local politician person on his birthday.
