Yes, Democracy is dying in Madurai - Tamil Nadu - South India - in fact all over India. Democracy is like a human body. Human body is corrupted with all kinds of bacterias, viruses and diseases.

Democracy is not anymore in India. We are being brainwashed that there is democracy going on India. But it is not. There are three enemies to democracy. Here are they -

(i) Corruption
(ii) Corruption
(iii) Corruption

Democracy has become with lot of holes, due to corruption. Democracy, as a system is not functioning, because of the fact that executive, judiciary and legislative layers of our government is corrupted.

There had been many tamil movies based on correcting corruption - like Indian, Anniyan, Ramana etc., but the movies are being watched and enjoyed. There is no social change out of it. Director has to be appreciated for the whole effort of trying the social change, but he is going without any good results. However, he gets the commercial benefits. My question is: Why are we liking to watch a movie with such a story of corrupt free world, but not interested to make our country in that fashion.

Eyes of democracy is closed by the monopolistic press and not a brave newspaper or television company so far.

Either the press is completely associated to one political party OR the press is not brave enough to freely post their articles to reach the people of the democratic country.

People are given false and unclear pictures of what is happenning around in the country, by owning the press in their side. There is one media company in Tamil nadu, which owns as many television channels, as many morning newspapers, as many evening newspapers, as many magazines as possible. These guys own the powerful television channel, which hosts programs with highest TRP ratings. People are stuck to these TV channels. People are not thinking for prosperity. People are just before the Televisions and keep on watching. People are becoming stupids and idiots, by watching just movies and serials. There is no scope for exposure and there is no scope for productivity.

In olden days, Zamindars used to have the people in the village, illitrate. Same thing is happening right now. Political parties are even giving Free Televisions for people from their party's money or government's money(all of tax payer's money), so that people can be struck to the television sets and be idle for the rest of their lives. At the sametime, have the people watch their campaign all the time.

You might think I am angry on the government. I would not agree with that. Not really. I am not angry with the government. I am angry with the people. Angry about all of us. Cheating is not a very bad thing. Being cheated is SIN.

We, the people are being sentimental fools, by going behind actors. We consider actors and actresses more than human beings. We should learn to watch movies, as movies and not compare with real life. That will change some of our thinking and in fact our lives.

There are three levels of the government - Executive, Judicial and Legislative. All the three parts of it needs money for functioning as a bribe to everything. Not only the government, every part of our soceity works on bribe and money. Did you know India is one of the most corrupt countries in the world!? Too bad!!

In effect, we should change for the betterment of the soceity. We should change for good. Automatically, the government would change for better. If every man does some change to the soceity, automatically things will change.

Everyone should read to become refined. Everyone should make positive changes towards our life. I suggest everyone take small steps and even very big steps are not needed - For example - do not put trash on public areas, instead just put the trash in trash can!

Let us take positive action and be just not idiots hereafter. Let us give what we can even in small efforts and save Democracy.

Madurai Chitra Festival

Madurai is all set for the Goddess Meenakshi and Sundareswarar Temple's Chithra(Chitra/ Chithirai thiruvizha) festival to be held starting from April 20th.

Some of the history details about Madurai Festival is here -

Several festivals are held throughout the year in Madurai. These festivals attract crowds from far and wide and by far represent some of the grandest celebrations of the Indian subcontinent.

The annual Bhramhotsavam celebrated in the month of Chittirai (Aries) is the most important one and it ties in the legends related to the Madurai temple such as the coronation of Meenakshi, the Divine marriage etc. The Chittirai festival also coincides with the annual festival at Tirumaaliruncholai. The Divine marriage involves a procession of deities from Tirupparamkunram as well, and hence during this time the entire area in and around Madurai is transformed into one of a great celebratory space.

The Chittirai festival begins on the 5th day of the bright half of the month of Chittirai. The key events fall on the 8th, 9th and the 10th days of the festival. The eighth day of the Chittirai festival witnesses the coronation of Meenakshi and procession on silver thrones, while the 9th day is the digvijaya festival. The 10th day (Chitra Purnima) marks the wedding of Meenakshi and Sundareswarar.

Legend has it that Vishnu gave his sister away in marriage to Shiva. In commemoration of this legend, an image of Vishnu is brought in procession from Tirupparamkunram to Madurai. Since Subramanya is the presiding deity of the Tirupparamkunram temple, an image of Subramanya leads the procession. Following the wedding, images of Meenakshi and Sundareswarar are taken out in a grand procession on a palanquin and a silver elephant respectively. (It is to be noted that the Tirukkalyaanam festival is celebrated on Chitra Pournami in all Shiva temples celebrating the annual Bhramhotsavam in the month of Chittirai).

During this time, Kallazhagar from Azhagar Koyil (Tirumaaliruncholai) makes a visit to Vandiyur, near the Vaigai river, on the eastern outskirts of Madurai. It is believed that Kallazhagar realizes that he is too late for his sisters wedding, so refuses to cross the river and returns disappointed to Azhagar koyil.

Historically, the chittirai festival used to be celebrated in Maasi, hence the festival processions use the Maasi streets. The festival apparently was moved to the month of Chittirai in the period of the Naik kings so that the timing would synchronize with that of Azhagar Koyil.

Global Warming

There is a serious issue coming up in our earth, which we all should be aware of and do something from everyone's end. This is a global responsibility and it is predicted that the worst affected would be the poorest, mostly from under-developed and developing countries.

Direct manifestations of a widespread and long-term trend toward warmer global temperatures:

1) Heat waves and periods of unusually warm weather
2) Ocean warming, sea-level rise and coastal flooding
3) Glaciers melting
4) Arctic and Antarctic warming

Events that foreshadow the types of impacts likely to become more frequent and widespread with continued warming:

1) Spreading disease
2) Earlier spring arrival
3) Plant and animal range shifts and population changes
4) Coral reef bleaching
5) Downpours, heavy snowfalls, and flooding
6) Droughts and fires
