this happened when i was kinda younger but not a child. our family decided to go to Kanchipuram to worship Maha Periyavaal and Kamakshi amman. kalangathala kelambi pallavan pudichi saidapet poi angendhu yedho thiruvalluvar bus pudichi ponom. i always enjoy outting and esp. these kinda bus and train journeys. (ofcourse flight journey is the most boring thing). i was of the thought that kanchipuram is located somewhere south and so would take a lot of time. but no, we reached it within hours. we had darshan - cant remember much however. then we all set for kinda brunch. my parents suggested that we would take food at the temple's madappalli (kitchen) itself. nanum akkavum chamatha avanga kooda kelambinom. yen annan all of a sudden kuttaiya kulappinan. 'hey after all koil sappada sapadaradhu. che.. nama hotel poi sapdalam' - ippo vena hotel sappadu has become sarva(r) sadharanam. but appollam it was a rare thing. so nanum rombo aasai patten. nan appa pet, nan yedhu sonnalum appa approve panniduvarnu yen annan, podi poi appa kitta kelu nu thalli vittuttan. nanum kenji konji permission vangitten. but appa refused to come to hotel and sent my amma also.
supera 4 perum poi ukkandhu nalla sweetla arambichi, oru round vada, dosa sapttu mudichom. idhula yen ammakku ore sandhosham yen annana pathi. indha chinna vayasula veli vasal ellam therini vachi hotella order pannra alavukku aagittane nu ore pulangagidham. annavum urchagam aagi, aarva kolarula yellam mudichi kelambara samayathula 'kanchipuram vandhuttu kanchipuram idli (udacha idli) sapdama pona yeppdi' nu solli, servera kettan. idichapuli rangekku irundha andha server rombo appaviya mugatha vachikittu 'hayyayyo kanchipuram idli nethe theendhu poche paa' apdeenaru. yellarum thiru thirunu mulichittu mugam yellam bayangarama kalavaramaagi pochu. yenga akka thitti theethutta 'olunga appa kooda madappallila jammunu puliyodharaiyum dhodhyonamum saptu irukkalam' nu. hotel vittu vandhu appava pathom. nan udane appa kitta nadandhada sonnen - inspite of my anna's muraippu, amma's warning and akka's kenjal. appa blasted out of laughter. appram we had bit of thayir sadham. but adutha naal yenna achunnu nyabagam illa ;-)
