( hman hun a sawi zawm ah ………)

Here is the bridge that connects rameswaram island, (the birthplace of honble’ president of India , APJ Abdul Kalam ,) and the main land of India.As you can see in the map, on the northern side is the palk strait , and southern side is gulf of geographically it is at the place where bay of Bengal meet the Indian ocean.

One interesting thing is , all along this bridge there are street lights on both sides at an interval of about 10 ft, and all the light pole are artistically design and installed to please the eye of the users. However , unfortunately/fortunately the bridge lies within the jurisdiction of local village panchayat, and as per the panchayat Act 1994, it is the responsibility of the village panchayat to look after the maintenance and electricity bill of the street light. Although responsibility has been entrusted to them, but to carry out this responsibility, there is not enough devolution of financial power. So ultimately, the panchayat can turn on the street light only two days before and after visit of VVIP .

Further, although as per the panchayat act, there are some local cess and surcharges which panchayat are supposed to levy and collect, but unfortunately , due to compulsion of vote politics, the panchayat can not realize the amount due to them. because they can not alienate the local voters in an election which can be decided by 20 votes or is not proper to blame the panchayat also, particularly keeping in mind the functioning of our parliament the highest legislative house in the country, which hardly show any sign of improvement in professionalism despite the fact that it has been functioning more than 50 years. So why should we blame the village panchayat which started functioning after 73rd and 74th constitution amendment???????.

But it is very sad to say that , because of all these lacunae in administrative arrangement, vote politics and culture, it is the users/public /tax payer, who are the sufferer.although legally , they are the one who enact, adopt, and gives to themselves the Indian constitution as enshrined in the preamble to the constitution of India. So there is an ocean of differences between what is written in the constitution and how our constitution is in action.

Looking from the bridge, both palk strait and gulf of manner can be seen. And there is not much visible difference, except of course the wave is little bit rough on the gulf of manner side. But there is a big difference in terms of policy and rules of government and that’s what I found interesting ……..

This peace of stone carve, i found in the st thomas mount in chennai, although it depict resurrection of christ from death, which symbolise the victory of good over evil, and the redemption of our sin, one of the most important epoch in the life of christ. but i dont know why, they keep in one of the corner of the compound fencing/or may be they use as a decoration of fence , who knows. and to my surprise, when i was about to take a photograph of this stone carve, one of the security guard approach me with a receipt to demand Rs 25 for taking photo of this piece of stone which they dont bother to keep in its proper place. But when i read the receipt , it is clearly meant for video, not for digi-camera, so i refuse to pay heheheh.......

something that catchs my eyes

Here is a picture of fishes, catched by rameswaram.fishermen.
The owner of the fishing boat is an ex-army man, who is living at about 20 Km from Ramanathapuram. These fishes are called "sheela" in local parlance.
one interesting thing about this fish is, although the boat owner is a local person, but it requires a special skill to catch this fish ,(they fix a number of fishing hook with white fishing rope at the back of boat , with small fish attached in those hooks to attract this bigger fish, and they sail in the sea at a high speed , to fool this 'sheela') so he have to employ fishermen from kanyakumari and nagercoil, which is more than 200 km from this area.
i am told that it is a very tasty fish, but unfortunately, to fetch a better price, all these fishes are packed in thermocolt box , with a ice , and then send by a lorry to tiruchirappalli airport , and then export to other, at the local market it is very difficult to find this fish, even if you find one , it may be the one which is already spoil or bit rotten , ...............
.once i have a chance ,(courtesy ;indian navy), to pursue this fishermen , in a "cheetah helicopter' which is a four sitter helicopter without door, it is hillarious, but sometimes chilling also, diving towards a trawler boat , and asking them to produce their licence from a helicopter by using thump symbol is an interesting expedition.....
