I've never hated a place more on the first day itself than this city. I tried my level best to avoid this trip in first place and ended up getting tripped into this for long term(huh..no more negative thoughts). vantha mudal naalay mangalagarama pursea pickpocket adichitanga. kathanyagan sv sekar pandiarajan mathiri gaja ka dosthunu solikitu kuda iruntha oru nalla aathma kaasu kuduthu kaapathichi. Kadavul oru vidhyasamana examiner. Kostinum avary kuduthu pakkathula answer/hintum avaray thanthirar. Ennaada panna poromnu mulichitruntha samayathula pakkabalama ninnu, confidence kuduthu, first few weeks enn kuda irunthu gavanichikitaru. He was my dad's age. Very senior resource. Irnuthalum enaku saria pesikitu, he made me feel comfortable and helped in getting set to the place. That he had already been to this mumbai was an added plus. Avar matum ilana en gathi atho kathi aagirukum. I am indebted to him.
Oora pathi solanumna...well..chennaila naan beach areas thaandi romba thooram ponathilla.. intha pallavaram tambaram sidelaam stay pannathilla. So no idea on how sultry it wud be there. But inga saami....veyil kolutharathoda matumila..puzhungi tholayathu. Thanni thannia verthu oothuthu. Absolutely no wind. Not a leaf moves in tree. Very humid place. Main matter. Intha oorula kuppa kotanumna be prepared to slog. Kaasu thanni mathiri karaiyara ooru ithu. Everything is costly and when you've people willing to pay, why not increase the prices. Food is extremely expensive. Travel, if you are not game for local trains, is a major expense. And this city is so HUGE you simply cannot travel by road. Its like 2 cities morphed into one. You've to use the train which are so jampacked, at times they look like fevicol ad in real time. You have to be physically fit to travel in local trains. Else forget it. You might get used to fourier series of continuous differential equations quicker than understanding the train routes!!
Ithan neram kurai soliten. Ipo pluslamum solanumla. Indiavoda kanavu nagaramna athu mumbaiya than irukum. Everyone dreams of making it big in the city and i heard that each day atleast 10000 new people settle in the city!!! Local trains are both boon and bane of this place. They connect the length and breadth of it and are the cheapest and quickest mode of transport across the city. And the best part is, they operate till 1 am in the night and start very early in the morning. So there is assured means of transport almost throughout the day. Night 12 maniku vanthalum auto buskaga wait pana venam and at those hours trains will be free also. And another good point is the roads. Other than the remote village sides, overall the roads are pretty good and lot better than the ones in chennai and banglore.
Intha oorula, namma, MTC mathiri BEST nu solranga. Meiyalumay BEST thaan. Semma cleana iruku. Seatlaam propera iruku. Enna dabba mathiri thammathundu sizela iruku bus. Main matter..inga irukara makkal. VERY FRIENDLY and disciplined. Busla era queuela nikaranga. Auto pudikavum queue thaan. They get into bus in through one door and get out through another. Angayum discipline. Roadla signala majority of autovaalas and bus drivers follow panranga. And they go out of their way to help people. Really warm hearted. And another main matter ponnungalaam rasagulla mathiri vella velernu irukunga :D Pesarthu oru elavum purilainalum..ek gaaon mein ek kisaan ragu thaatha soli adjust pana terinja inga kaalatha thaliralam. The localites are very proud of their clan and state and easiest way to reach the nearest hospital is to badmouth them. I've been to 2 3 malls here. Man..they are huge. By far they are the biggest I've seen in my life and they stay there are still bigger malls around!! I don't have any friends here so cant comment much on the social life. But there is always a positive attitude about these people. Come what may they simply carry on and thats highly infectious :)
