Madurai Chicken 65

When I used to grow up in Madurai, I crave for chicken 65, which are made in streets.
They are deep fried, in some oil, which I am not sure is good or not.

But, one thing is sure - Chicken 65 on the streets are very tasty.

I used to enjoy the Mutton Soups sold in the Palanganatham streets(near Nataraj Theatre) madurai, which might not be very healthy. Parotta in Subbiah kadai(now it is renamed as Nagaraj Parotta Stall Hotel) opposite Nataraj theatre.

I enjoy chicken 65 in the entrance of town hall road, madurai.

I enjoy avicha kadalai(boiled ground nuts) on the town hall road.

I used to get some magazines in town hall road and walk with avicha kadalai. Read some books in the bookshops like Malligai book shop and other stores in the same street. Walk up and down and get back to my hero honda bike:).

This was my major timepass in Madurai:)

TVS Company, Madurai is my inspiration

I was born and brought up in Madurai. Only Major Madurai company (conglomerate/business group) I have seen and grown up with is - TVS - TVS Company.

If you want to know about the company, please see here TVS Company Profile in our blog

I wanted to build a conglomerate, since I have been growing up with TVS. I believe that is the inspiration for anybody who have grown up in Madurai.

TVS Company is great because - on those days they have started varied companies in various domains and have given jobs to the local community in Madurai. I like the fact that many families earned and many familes have lived in Madurai.

In my perspective, TVS company is professional, conservative, organized and have landed in most of the businesses in Madurai and they do business internationally too.

One of the most profitable and international companies in TVS Sundaram Fasteners, Madurai which is an export unit. The company supplies for General Motors too.

Anyway, the reason of the blog was to say that TVS Company is my inspiration. TVS Company has been doing great, giving employment to the madurai community. I am sure TVS will still favour Madurai in future too.

One request to the management is to do much more business, expand the business in Madurai to fulfill the demands of madurai needs.

thank you for listening...

Madurai Software Business: Future Online Software Business: Software as a service

I think the future of software is all going to be ONLINE. In other words it is called SaaS - Software as a Service.

The traditional software is always deployed in the company infrastructure and the software is used by the users in the company. These days it seems to behosted and used as a service. That is going to be the future as well.

Companies like salesforce.com started off their business like that only. Even traditional software businesses started in past, have an online version of the software available for them.

For example, accounting software companies like intuit - quickbooks have an online version of their software. NetSuite.com etc., has followed the same.

If you want to know about - Software as a service. Please read more in the last paragraph.

The reason I am explaining about SaaS. Because it is the current style, happenning and future of software business in the world, india and madurai. Also, I happenned to hear about a new company in Madurai, which had started a Software as a service business in madurai.

aveoinfotech.com. The software this company has come up with is - daybook.in. This software is hosted and it is in BETA stage of software development life cycle in madurai.

I congratulate this entrepreneur for starting this service and also appreciate for it. All the best for his venture. Why is Madurai Machan happy about it?? I am glad for the fact that this company is started in Madurai.:)

About Daybook, Aveo Infotech, Madurai

About SaaS - Software as a service

Software as a service (SaaS) is a software application delivery model where a software vendor develops a web-native software application and hosts and operates (either independently or through a third-party) the application for use by its customers over the Internet.

Customers do not pay for owning the software itself but rather for using it. They use it through an API accessible over the Web and often written using Web Services or REST. The term SaaS has become the industry preferred term, generally replacing the earlier terms Application Service Provider (ASP) and On-Demand.

Research regarding starting a business in Madurai

I was researching about starting a business in Madurai.

Here are some online findings I did about Madurai Business Help, though I have covered a lot in most of my previous articles about business in madurai.

For any industrial production and manufacturing kind of business in madurai, you can choose your location somewhere from


The above link lists the available land from the SEZs and SIPCOT allotted land. You can purchase land from any location in tamil nadu.

The nearest location from Madurai - I noticed was MANAMADURAI.

I happenned to notice one more interesting factor - Land of 1 acre is just Rs.1 lakh.
Isn't that very affordable? I think so.

1) Manamadurai Railway station located at a distance of 5 km from the complex.
2) Location:
Manamadurai Taluk. Sivagangai District.
5 kms from Manamadurai
on Manamadurai - Perambalur
One hour drive from Madurai.
3) 60 kms from Madurai Airport
4) Separate Substation is provided for uninterrupted power supply to the Industrial units.
5) Possible and preferred industries...
* Electrical & Electronics
* General Engineering
* Plastic Industries
* Textiles
* Cement Industries
* Modern rice Mill
* Zip fastners
* Graphite
* and other industries

If you wonder, who is providing these lands in manamadurai and other allotted lands -


State Industries Promotion Corporation of Tamil Nadu (SIPCOT) Limited, a fully government owned premier institution, established in the year 1972, has been a catalyst in development of small, medium and large scale industries in Tamil Nadu.

All for good... If you are thinking of starting a production and manufacturing business in madurai, check out this article about manamadurai SEZ location, which is cheap and best. Good connection to airport, sea and railways.

Tamil nadu to promote four more SEZs - Madurai Update

In an effort at equitable economic growth across the state, the Tamil Nadu government is encouraging industrial and IT investments in areas other than Chennai and its suburbs, said Finance Minister K. Anbazhagan here Thursday. Presenting the budget for 2008-09, he announced four special economic zones (SEZ) for (a) transport engineering goods at Gangaikondan, Tirunelveli district on 255-acre; (b) automobile and auto spare parts at Cheyyar, Tiruvanamalai district on 255-acre; (c) 263-acre engineering goods at Perunthurai, Erode; and (d) leather sector in 260 acres at Ranipet.

According to him, so far 32 SEZs have been approved in Tamil Nadu and 29 of them have been notified by the central government.

“Efforts are being taken to establish multi-product SEZs at Nanguneri in Tirunelveli district, Krishnagiri, Perambalur and Ennore,” he said.

Anbazhagan also declared that the state government would pay careful attention to the livelihood security of farmers when establishing the SEZs.

He said the state would offer the same tax concessions enjoyed by industrial units investing Rs.3.5 billion ($86.6 million) in Chennai, Kanchipuram and Tiruvallur districts to those setting up industries in other places at an outlay of Rs.2.5 billion.

The government is also promoting tier II cities as the destination of IT companies.

IT parks are being set up in Coimbatore, Madurai, Trichy, Tirunelveli and Salem. Companies establishing IT parks have been allotted land and SEZ status has been obtained for them.

“A new IT park will be set up in Vellore by ELCOT (Electronic Corp of Tamil Nadu) in partnership with the private sector in the coming financial year,” Anbazhagan said.

He added that Tamil Nadu Cements Corp would double its capacity at an outlay of Rs.820 million.

Procedure to start a company in Madurai

Types of Business Entities

Private Limited Company
Public Limited Company
Unlimited Company
Partnership - Limited and Unlimited
Sole Proprietorship
Applicable law
The Indian Companies Act of 1956

Forming a Company in India

The Companies Act of 1956 sets down rules for the establishment of both public and private companies. The most commonly used corporate form is the limited company, unlimited companies being relatively uncommon. A company is formed by registering the Memorandum and Articles of Association with the State Registrar of Companies of the state in which the main office is to be located.

Foreign companies engaged in manufacturing and trading activities abroad are permitted by the Reserve Bank of India to open branch offices in India for the purpose of carrying on the following activities in India:

· to represent the parent company or other foreign companies in various matters in India, for example, acting as buying/selling agents in India, etc.;

· to conduct research work in which the parent company is engaged provided the results of the research work are made available to Indian companies;

· to undertake export and import trading activities;

· to promote possible technical and financial collaboration between Indian companies and overseas companies.

Application for permission to open a branch, a project office or liaison office is made via the Reserve Bank of India by submitting form FNC-5 to the Controller, Foreign Investment and Technology Transfer Section of the Reserve Bank of India. For opening a project or site office, application may be made on Form FNC-10 to the regional offices of the Reserve Bank of India.

A foreign investor need not have a local partner, whether or not the foreigner wants to hold full equity of the company. The portion of the equity thus not held by the foreign investor can be offered to the public.

Incorporating a Company:

Approval of Name: The first step in the formation of a company is the approval of the name by the Registrar of Companies (ROC) in the State/Union Territory in which the company will maintain its Registered Office. This approval is provided subject to certain conditions: for instance, there should not be an existing company by the same name. Further, the last words in the name are required to be "Private Ltd." in the case of a private company and "Limited" in the case of a Public Company.

Memorandum and Articles, etc.:

The Memorandum of Association and Articles of Association are the most important documents to be submitted to the ROC for the purpose of incorporation of a company. The Memorandum of Association is a document that sets out the constitution of the company. It contains, amongst others, the objectives and the scope of activity of the company and also defines the relationship of the company with the outside world.

The Articles of Association contain the rules and regulations of the company for the management of its internal affairs. While the Memorandum specifies the objectives and purposes for which the Company has been formed, the Articles lay down the rules and regulations for achieving those objectives and purposes.

The ROC will give the certificate of incorporation after the required documents are presented along with the requisite registration fee, which is scaled according to the share capital of the company, as stated in its Memorandum. A private company can commence business on receipt of its certificate of incorporation.

A public company has the option of inviting the public for subscription to its share capital. Accordingly, the company has to issue a prospectus, which provides information about the company to potential investors. The Companies Act specifies the information to be contained in the prospectus.

The prospectus has to be filed with the ROC before it can be issued to the public. In case the company decides not to approach the public for the necessary capital and obtains it privately, it can file a "Statement in Lieu of Prospectus" with the ROC.

On fulfillment of these requirements, the ROC issues a Certificate of Commencement of Business to the public company. The company can commence business immediately after it receives this certificate.

It must have at least seven shareholders.
A public company is not authorized to start business upon the grant of the certificate of incorporation. In order to be eligible to commence business as a corporation, it must obtain another document called "trading certificate".
It must publish a prospectus or file a statement in lieu of a prospectus before it can start transacting business.
A public company is required to have at least three directors.

Is building an orphange Good practice or bad?

Traditionally in India, orphans were accommodated by the extended family. But in western part of the world people built orphanages. The characteristics of orphanages for the last two hundred years have been: • insufficient numbers of staff to meet the physical and psychological needs of the children; • a failure to teach the children how to relate to adults of both sexes, and in doing so learn how to be a woman or a man; • a failure to teach them how to build relationships of their own; • lack of planning of the children’s’ work futures. In Europe, girl babies are put into orphanages, grow up without relationships with boys and men, come out at sixteen, get pregnant . . . and put their girl baby back into the orphanage.

People seem to love building orphanages. The idea makes a nice mental picture – the saintly founders, surrounded by the loving children who are only alive because of them, all in a building that is a concrete proof of their benevolence. But this picture is about the egos of the builders, not what is best for children.

Today, AIDS has brought a large number of orphans. How should they be cared for? The money that can build an orphanage can also be spent on fostering the babies with their grannies and paying an allowance. If there are no grannies, aunties or big sisters, they can be fostered with non-related families. If land tenure is closed to outsiders, then older orphans will do better in towns, where they can be found a Master or Mistress and apprenticed to a trade, and ideally fostered with the Mistress’s or Master’s family.

God Krishna's wisdom for everyone: Madurai Wisdom

God Krishna's Bhagavad Gita wisdom for everyone: Madurai Wisdom

1. Why do you uselessly worry? Of whom are you needlessly afraid? Who can kill you? The Atma is neither born nor does it die.

2. Whatever happened in the past is for your good. Whatever is happening now is also good and whatever happens in the future is, that too, will be good. Do not have regrets about the past. Do not worry about the future. The presence is flowing effortlessly.

3. What have you lost that makes you weep? What did you bring into this life that you have lost? What did you nurture that has been destroyed. You brought nothing into this life and nothing you take while you are here can you take with you when you depart. Whatever you took or gave, you did so only here and only from Bhagavan. You came into the world empty-handed, and will leave empty-handed. What is yours today was another persons yesterday and the day after tomorrow is will belong to someone else. You think all this is yours because you are identified with this existence. Alas, is it this materialistic attachment that is the cause of your unhappiness.

4. Change is the law of the Universe. What you think of as death is actually real life. In a moment you become rich. The next moment you are poor. Yours and mine, small and large, ours and theirs: banish these petty thoughts from your mind! Here everything is yours and you belong to everyone else.

5. Neither is the body yours, nor do you belong to this body. This body is made of the five elements: earth, air, water, fire and space, and someday is will return from whence it came. But the atma is firm and immoral. What then are you?

6. Surrender yourself to the Lord. He will be your greatest help and comfort. The person who knows this is unafraid, does not worry and is free from sorrow.

7. Whatever you do, surrender it at the feet of the Lord. When you do this you will know the bliss of one who is free from the cycle of births and deaths.

Changes in Madurai

What are NRMs thinking right now??

As I have mentioned before I refer NRMs for Non-Resident Maduraiites - please refer this back.
NRMs live outside Madurai, for various purposes - but mainly job/money/personal reasons. The location could be inside India or outside India as well.

NRMs outisde India might have more money than other major population of residents. Considering the wealth, NRMs would be wondering about buying lands in madurai, properties in madurai, commercials buildings in madurai.

The NRMs would not stop over there. They would buy businesses - start businesses.
Trade in, Start dealerships, franchisees, agents, brokers. Every NRM will try to make money out of the hype, boom in madurai.

This will be the same, in terms of thoughts of residents of Madurai.

However, when I think about my close friend, who is just an auto mechanic. He repairs scorpio and other SUVs.
He works for a private concern in Madurai, near Bye-pass road. He earns about Rs.3000 per month.
Considering the changes happenning in Madurai, what will happen to the financial future of my auto mechanic friend??

I am sure he is not going to get huge hike, because industry is growing. However, I think the auto company will get much more business than before, due to increased population. Even though auto company grows, it does not mean that the company is going to hike his salary.

But as per the economic cycle(science) and rule, auto company has to increase the salary, in order to be par with other competitors, otherwise the employee might go away to some other company.

Above all, I believe it should be a slow and steady growth for everyone. If it happens to be a growth for only a particular group of people, then it is going to be a problem.

Changes in Madurai - Positive and Negative

Change is needed from everyone in the city.

As per Bhagavad Gita, Change is only permanent thing in this world.
Considering the positive changes about to happen to madurai, there is change expected certainly.

The existing people in madurai might have been living in a certain way.
Now that there are changes expected, existing people in madurai might get affected.

The simplest people in Madurai might not be able to cope up with the changes happenning in madurai.
If the simplest people in madurai change themselves to the curve of madurai, then they also get benefitted.

If not, there are some serious problems awaited for these people. You better catch up with the change.

Agriculture might get affected due to the change in the city. Agriculture has to be modernized and improved, instead it should be avoided for the brighter sides of the city.

In addition to all that - most importantly madurai culture will be left behind. The culture of people living together, whatever problem happens or whatever happiness amidst the family. Relationships will be affected. Faster life is going to affect everyone, in a way that everyone is going to look for money and no hearts.

This is definitely the negative side of the whole positive change.

God Bless Madurai!!

Economy of Madurai

Sponsored by OruAcre.com

Economy of Madurai

I am not an economist to comment on economy of Madurai.
But I can definitely say something of sense, as a common citizen of Madurai.

Economy of Madurai is all set to grow in an elevated manner. The reason - due to growth of one industry - computer software industry, there would be lot of money coming in Madurai.

Most important point here is - the money is all white. Nothing black in it. All the money is either post-tax money or the money earnt legally. This is not just money from a politician or a corrupt official. All this money is coming from outsiders, who have earnt money in various ways.

As we have discussed before, economy improves only when businesses are started. These businesses expanded or started would give employment to numerous individuals. If various individuals get employment, automatically the whole family gets benifitted.
If you think about it - if one industry crops up, then automatically other industries come up.

For example: IT industry is facilitated by the government. We are already seeing that real estate industry is on top. Whoever has money is buying lands left and right. All outsiders are trying to buy land in madurai. Corporates are buying land in madurai.
This manifests the status of real estate industry in Madurai, due to the upcoming IT industry.

One small example is that - online domain names related to madurai are on demand these days. The number of domains related to Madurai registered in past 2 years is more than what it had been the case before.

People are trying to buy businesses already existing in Madurai.

For example, if more outsiders come into madurai, then automatically entertainment and food industry also booms.
Existing small theatres in madurai would be bought, considering the location. The small theatre will have to give up their business due to couple of reasons - 1) The offer will be big, which cannot be hesitated. 2) The small business owner will not have this opportunity again, since it is a boom time. 3) Withstanding and continuing businesses before these big businesses would be difficult for the small business owner.

I see an amazing miraculous change for Madurai. I see Madurai to change as a GREAT MADURAI!!!

I wish I come back to my madurai and live the rest of my life.

this article would continue...

Real Estate Return of Investment in Madurai

Sponsored by OruAcre.com

Real Estate Return of Investment in Madurai

Think about it guys...We have seen the growth of the real estate market in Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad and all other major cities growing before our eyes in past 15-20 years. It is crazy now, when we think about a property in the big cities.

Isn't it time to realize what is happenning in Madurai?
Take a land for example - which looks like the following today:

A cent is INR 25,000. Remember one cent is 436 Sq.Ft.
One acre is INR Rs.25 lakhs.

Good enough. If we buy around 10 cents, which is Rs.2,50,000.

If we project that, the value appreciates 3-4 times in a period of 5 years, optimistic!

The property you have bought becomes Rs.10 Lakhs!

Isn't this a great investment, for our hard earned money?!
This is just in Real Estate - we can talk more about other businesses later in one of the articles.

Madurai Real Estate Boom?!

Sponsored by OruAcre.com

Real Estate Boom

One of my friend was asking if all the things happenning in Madurai are:
Hype or Reality?!

My answer to him was Yes and No.
Why I say Yes:
By March 23rd Dr.Kalaignar Karunanidhi is coming to Madurai and he is inaugurating the IT Park location.
This is reality.
So, things are happenning. Corporates like HCL, Satyam etc., are buying land left and right in Madurai.
This is reality.
Real Estate is booming - this is reality and a hype too. Whoever has money invests into it. Once Madurai becomes a developed city, then comes the real return of investment for whatever you might have invested in Madurai.

Hype is what people make about more than what it appears in Madurai to NRMs. NRMs do not see it first hand. So, whatever happens, NRMs get the news second hand and they have to believe it. At the pessimistic person's suspicious eyes, it looks like it is a hype. Not for everyone. We will see once it happens.

Whatever it is - all said and done -
Definitely something is happenning and
it is a reality for Madurai to become a GREAT MADURAI!!!

Reverse Brain Drain to Madurai

As you know, I have explained in one of my previous article about NRMs. This word is similar to NRI - Non-Resident Indian.
NRM denotes Non-Resident Maduraiite. Isn't that a cool name?
This word includes all the individuals who reside outside madurai for various reasons, but track madurai happennings, or have relatives in madurai, have done schooling or college in madurai. OK, from now on I will denote those individuals as NRM, in the rest of the article.

NRMs are keeping track of Madurai through the news media and their relatives or friends at Madurai.
Seeing the progress and so called "Hype" happenning in Madurai, everybody is excited.

All the NRMs are having an idea of coming back to Madurai and live in Madurai. This is definitely a reverse brain drain for Madurai and this is expected to happen in a time frame of 4 to 5 years.

You might have read the previous article, which has a possible collection of things expected to be built in terms of commercial interest and infrastructure improvement. That definitely interests lot of people and NRMs will be definitely interested to come back to MADURAI.

Good for Madurai!!
