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 ……

    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.

  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.
