The Journey from OR to AND

It is tough to select the right path for everyone because that single decision might change our life either good or bad. One such decision was taken by me, which is a turning point of my life.
After completing my schooling I applied for under graduate course and simultaneously I wanna study Prathmic in hindi. So I asked mom to check with the hindi master who is running a Institute. whether he could take home tuition for me.

He commented to mom that it is waste of money, educating a handicapped girl and agreed to take classes on weekends. When Mom told about this I didn’t feel bad or upset I just concentrated on studies and passed with distinction, which made him feel proud. The exam result has changed him a lot later he voluntarily came to teach me for further exams.
After studies my friends suggested me to go for job, while my parents asked me run PCO in which I was not at all interested. Business is my passion. That was the time for me to take right decision. Usually when a guy chooses his passion over commitments, it's called risk, brilliance; etc  however, when a girl does that, family neighbors tag her as stubborn, headstrong.
I have no investment or resources to start a business. At last after lot of thinking and convincing my parents I finally started recruitment consultancy with zero investment. Gradually my business picked up and got a good reputation. Then I started writing short stories for magazines. I cleared all the family debts and built a constructed a house now my family and siblings are very proud of me.

Now all my relatives and friends are happy and proud of me. As they never expected that a handicapped girl in wheel chair can achieve something like this. I hope my story gives inspiration to all the readers.

Ashok Pillar

Daily while crossing the Ashok Pillar I near forgot to admire huge pillar in Ashok Nagar named as Ashok pillar. I will have a glance at the pillar with four lion head stump everyday. Sometimes a dove will be sitting on it.
It is situated in the residential locality at the southern part of Chennai, India. It was established in 1964. At the heart of this colony, stands the Ashok Pillar. This four lion head stump which resembles the one erected by king Ashoka during the 3rd century BC at Sanchi.
The Tamil Nadu Housing Board has constructed this pillar during the year 1970s to promote this suburban locality of Ashok Nagar in Chennai. Later this  Ashok Pillar has become the landmark of the locality Ashok Nagar, which gradually turned into a shopping hub.

 These trendy shopping areas and the metro connection are making Ashok Nagar an attractive locality for investment.

Memories of Rajiv Gandhi Memorial

Whenever I pass through the industrial city of Sriperumbudur the first thing that catches your glance is the Indian National Flag at Rajiv Gandhi Memorial. The memorial has one of the biggest flag staffs of India carrying Indian National Flag. When it was opened to the public in 2003, since then Iam planning to visit this place but due to other plans and work schedule i couldnt able to make it. So while returning from Kancheepuram  on 07.01.2014 we drove in to the Memorial with my family.

This is the very place where the youngest Prime Minister of India, Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated at the age of 40, in the year 1991 on 21st May by a suicide bomber while campaigning for election at this place and government later converted this place into a memorial.

He was the Son of the Brave Lady and former Prime Minister Indra Gandhi and the Grandson of the first Prime minister of India Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.

It is just 40 kms away from Chennai at Sriperumbudur in kanchipuram district on the road of NH4 and become an important tourist attraction for visitors.

The seven monumental granite pillars surrounding the blast site is a magnificent sight for the Tourists visiting the city and it is a best destination for the photographers. The place is very calm with lushy green meadows and green trees neatly planted here and there with well maintained surroundings.

 My Nephew posing at the exit of the memorial as it is time to leave to home.When you happen to travel in the Sriperumbudur road in Kancheepuram District, Just take a break at the Memorial, where the Indian Prime Minister took his last breath of his life. It is worth a visit.

Sriperumbudur is also famous for its Adi Kesava Perumal Temple and the birthplace of the great Vaishnaivite saint Ramanuja.
