Melvin takes the plunge...


 He is my most favorite humorist. He can crack a joke on anything and everything. I came to know that he is a senior to me at school from one of his rib ripping columns.Melvin Durai finally takes the plunge and writes a book- ‘ Bala takes the Plunge’.

Kadambavanam - the temple of Tamil traditions

with Ar. Ganapathy
Kadambavanam - a Tamil Culture resort is the brainchild of Architect Ganapathy and his wife Chitra. The place is about 25 kms from Madurai towards Natham and set in a scenic and tranquil hillside. Using local materials and local artisans - the place offers an interesting cultural experience.
This is a must visit place for anyone visiting Madurai. Infact the locals from Madurai also should drop in to realize the depth and character of our own heritage.

Kadambavanam is a wonderful beginning....a journey that should go a long way
