lovely fragrance …..

These lovely garlands ready at pondy bazaar, T nagar for any event …. could be a marriage, reception, public meetings, political meetings, funerals etc …..

You can be rest assured you’ll get a ready made garland at this place at any time of the day.

This reminds me of the lovely tamil saying “பூவோடு சேர்ந்து நாரும் மனம் பெரும் ” (aka ” the straw gets the fragrance of the flower”)

  1. I loved this about Chennai! The beautiful women in their sari’s with flowers in their hair…riding on motorcycles behind their husbands. I really miss Chennai and the people there. I also loved Pondy Bazaar, especially the sweets shops!

    Ram : Sherry, you seem to have really indulged in Chennai …. you are welcome again for the sweet shops, flowers and many more ……


  2. //“பூவோடு சேர்ந்து நாரும் மனம் பெரும் ”//
    இதில் இரண்டு பிழைகள் உள்ளன.
    மனமல்ல.. அது மணம்.
    பெரும் அல்ல.. பெறும்.
    “பூவோடு சேர்ந்த நாரும் மணம் பெறும்” என்பதே சரியானது.. ஆங்கிலத்தில் தவறாக எழுதாமல் இருக்க எடுக்கும் அதே முயற்சியைப் பிற மொழிகளுக்கும் நாம் தர வேண்டும்.


    Ram : நேரத்திற்கு நன்றி, முயற்சிக்கிறேன்


  3. Thanks Ram. 🙂 Oh the sweet shops were just the best. All the variety and everything tasted so good. I think they were ‘ghee’ sweets? Anyway, the best. and walking out on the streets and catching the scent of jasmine flowers in the air. I miss that.

    Ram : Welcome Sherry 🙂 …. and extending the welcome once again for coming back to Chennai & indulge.
