Thought for Today-494:

The secret of success is learning how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you. If you do that, you're in control of your life. If you don't, life controls you - Anthony Robbins

Beach Road, Pondicherry.  I love this place.  I love to spend time talking to Nellai in the Coffee Lounge situated on the right side, from where you can see the sea and enjoy sea breeze all the time. Lovely place!

Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself – Emerson

My Photo Album-73: Dad and Mom on Dad's 60th birthday

This photo was taken in a photo studio in Hosur on Dad's 60th birthday.  I am seated near my mom and at the other end, my uncle, dad's younger brother.  Behind us, my younger brothers. Rarely, five of us, brothers, come together.  On many an important occasion, at least one of us would be missing. So it is another memorable photo we cherish.

My Photo Album-72: Dad and Mom

This memorable photo of my mom and dad was taken some time in 1948, after their marriage on July 5.  Due to our carelessness, the photo got damaged a little bit, for which I am really sorry.  I am sure my siblings, all the ten of them, will like this photo.

During 1965-66, I studied in Raja Doraisingam Memorial College, Sivagangai.  We were residing at Manamadurai, a nearby place, from where I used to commute to and fro to attend classes. This is how Sivagangai came into my life.  Nearly 45 years after my college days there, I visited the place with my dear friend, Senthil, and clicked the landmarks for posting in my blog.
