Prayers of gratitude, I cannot express here but the sceneries of country side during the journey were also of spiritual solace, tried to click a few from a running vehicle.
While most of the journey was thorough NH( excellent toll roads), SH were bumpy, "Under repair", "Men at work" roads, and since it was in the night, the headlights of oncoming vehicles were blinding and slightly dangerous if one is not alert.
But the journey from Tiruvaiyaru to Trichy on Village roads were a sensory feast. We travelled on narrow roads flanked with channels of Cauvery and Coleroon( kollidam) and there were many more little rivulets like kodamurutti ( Tiruvaiyaru means land of 5 rivers all tributaries of Cauvery)...although not in full glory, it was lovely to see water in the rivers and at Grand anicut.
Little shrines on the river banks, irrigated lands,lotus and lily laden ponds, traditional thinnai homes, dung plastered huts, coconuts dried on the road ( for making copra and oil), daily village scenes.... It was very humbling to see such simple life with less comforts compared to the city life we lead.
