Description for Srirangam Bhooloka Vaikuntam (First Edition)
Pictorial tribute to Srirangam, the first of the 108 Divyadesams, this volume “Srirangam Bhooloka Vaikuntam” contains a compilation of interesting mythological legends, historical facts and figures, art and architecture & fascinating festivals. The highlight of this coffee-table book are the mesmerizing photographs of the temple precincts; of Nam Perumal, decorated and seated on various vahanas; the exile of Azhagiya Manavalan in the forests of Seshachalam at the foot hills of Tirumala and the frenzy festival fervor of the shrine, all captured by J. Ramanan, with an appealing narration by Vrinda Ramanan.

If you didn’t notice, people who bought the coffee-table book on the temple town also bought 1 Kg of detergent and a book on colonial history of India, so Amazon tells us!!!
So we’re safe at least for now!
I was meeting my niece after a lapse of a few years.
Now in her early teens, she walks up to me and says:
‘Uncle, what’s wrong with you?’
‘Eh?’ I immediately look at my clothes to see if I spilled coffee or something.
‘You know, you have a medical condition?’
This is something else.
An incongruous twinkle in her eyes sets me wise.
‘Young lady I’m touched by your concern. But I disappoint you – I’ve never felt better than now.‘
She stands there smiling.
The penny does drop finally.
I look at her head to toe. She has grown tall!
An elderly lady phoned her telephone company to report that her telephone failed to ring when her friends called… and that on the few occasions when it did ring, her pet dog always moaned right before the phone rang.
The telephone repairman proceeded to the scene, curious to see this psychic dog or senile elderly lady. He climbed a nearby telephone pole, hooked in his test set, and dialed the subscriber’s house. The phone didn’t ring right away, but then the dog moaned loudly and the telephone began to ring. Climbing down from the pole, the telephone repairman found…..
1. The dog was tied in to the telephone system’s ground wire via its steel chain and collar.
2. The wire connection to the ground rod was loose.
3. The dog was receiving 90 volts of signaling current when the phone number was called.
4. After a couple of such jolts, the dog would start moaning and then urinate on himself and the ground.
5. The wet ground would complete the circuit, thus causing the phone to ring.

At least to me, it’s new. Never thought the joke could be on us, not about someone from south-of-boondocks as I had imagined.
A policeman sees a drunk staring at the ground beneath a streetlight. “What are you doing?” the cop asks.
“Looking for my keys.” says the drunk. “I dropped them in the dark alley over there.”
“Then why are you over here?” asks the policeman, confused.
“Because the light’s so much better over here.”
The streetlights are our controlled environments where we look for answers —labs, classrooms, fixed timetables, and clear metrics. But things are more fluid in the real world. For that we need to rely more on tacit knowledge from our experience…
