Four square years in four square kilometers

A picture is worth a thousand words. Will leave you with two, pictures that is...

A map (thanks to google) which defines 16 years of life spent just going between the marked spots,




and a very important "X" on that map that got special mention!




More than two thousand words rush into my head at the realization that a life that was centered around crossroads denoted by a small "+" on the map, branched out to locations, far and away.

Life does take you places.

You know I am good for all two thousand words given the time, but will stop with the first 60.

Know at least one person who would exclaim "thank god!" after reading that sentence!

The first 60 has a power pack that could send the 2000 to someplace else !

Porikadalai sold here has been a landmark for many people ! Because to the young and the old ( & ofcourse the inbetweens...the kadalai mattered. Always !!
