Looonnnng Road Trip to Vellore golden temple! ;) 29th july 2009

B4 telling about our trip to Golden temple let me say the reasons y v arranged a trip to Vellore.

--My friend Ashwin gna do MBA in UWIC. He is leaving on Sep 1st wk and his dad gna handover his fiesta to their college staff. So we wanted to go for a long drive in fiesta.

--on the way to vellore there is a briyani shop.. non-veg lovers must not miss this place.. (Actually dis must be the first reason :P )

R Vignesh and k Vignesh were in chennai but missed dis trip.. unlucky fellows ;);)Most of my frenz joined their company in blore so they also couldn’t cum..

Ashwin,Deepak, Pavi and myself only went. We started at sharp 8 o’clock in the morning from guindy..traffic was normal and deepak speeded at 120 km/hr towards porur with the music player loaded with aayirathil oruvan songs. V stopped at a highway restaurant to have breakfast.

“remember v need cum before one clock to the bryiani shop otherwise it will be closed” said ashwin in a warning tone.

“it’s a famous temple… my mom said it will be too crowded, can v cum bak early??”, said Deepak.

“do u know how long will it take to reach the temple” , asked pavi.

“hmm.. from here we will reach arcot briyani shop in one hour.. from there golden temple will be near only I guess…”. Ashwin said coolly and smirked.

“so u don’t know the exact place..??”. we shouted in shock!!

“hey.. it must be somewhere near arcot only..”, ashwin assured us and again we started driving.

Time 10:10 a.m, v reached. 2 hours traveling was not boring at all.. how it would be boring with my frnz around me..?? :):)

Ashwin again warned,” briyani shop is till 1 p.m only.. so dnt make late in temple.. ve to cum bak soon..ok??”

“Hey let us reach the temple first.. how long to go da??” ,I asked him.

“Somewhere here only di..”, again in a confident voice ashwin said.

Sign boards pointing towards banglore reminded pavi and me about our written test at sonoa systems on Friday. (oh.. with written test on Friday u gals loitering out ?? :P)

In few min, a temple with a bronze tower glowing in bright sun light was visible.

“Hurray… v reached the!!” pavi and me shouted in joy.

Before Deepak could turn right towards the temple, a pulsar speeded infront of us. So he went straight without turning right.

“This is a famous temple.. but its very small”, ashwin said in doubt.

V asked a auto driver to confirm, “where is the golden temple??”

“go straight.. Then u will reach vellore.. cross 3 bridges take left go straight…”. He continued a big map description..

v didn’t want to go back to arcot without seeing the temple.. Deepak drove in the same speed..

Finally v reached GOLDEN TEMPLE at 11 a.m

V need to reach that briyani shop b4 1 p.m :P we decided to finish the dharisanam in 45 min and go bak to Arcot. We ain’t suppose to take mobile fonez inside the temple.v stood in a big queue and surrendered our fonez, shoes… time 11:20 a.m

V walked into the temple, the path is fully fenced with iron grill gates. Usual checking was made by the temple securities and v reached a room with chairs neatly arranged.

The security kindly said,” ppl..u sit here.. then in a short time u will be re-directed to another room”.

“how long will it take??”, asked ashwin.

“jus 30-40 min this room.. like this v have 3 rooms for complete dharisanam it will take around only 2 hours or so”

Lol :D we walked towards the exit!!

Either v have to drop our eat-out plan or miss dharisanam. Well, we decided not to miss the both. So v planned to go back to arcot and come to the temple in the evening.

Again car speeded towards Arcot. We reached Star Briyani, Arcot at 12:10 p.m.

Man.. u will be amazed to see such a delicious briyani served in a small shop.(it can not occupy more than ten ppl at a time and the rates are damn cheap ;);)). It was little crowded. V got a separate room with only one table and had superb briyani served hot with raita. Hmpf..lunch over.. again bak to golden temple…

I told,“hey.. feeling too tired.. can v go someother day” .

“even I have to reach home early.. my sister is waiting for me..”, said pavi.

“OKIES.. Bak to Chennai..!!” :D

atlast reached Chennai at 3 p.m.

Though v didn’t see the temple or get was a wonderful trip. One of the memorable day in my life. :):)
