From Dec 20th to Dec 26th, I was there at my native place for doing my father’s 1st death anniversary rituals. On Dec 23th, we arranged for pooja and yagam at our home. On Dec 25th, we went to kadiyakarai (Point Calimere) to drop my father’s ashes in the sea. Last one week, our district was heavily affected by the rain. So we are not sure about the condition of the roads to Kadiyakarai. But one of our friend told that the road condition is OK and no flood on the road. After this conformation only, we started our journey. But on the way, still in some place the road covered by flood and unable differentiate it from the river, which is flowing along this road, that made the journey bit difficult. If our car deviate few feet from the road, we will be in the river. On Dec 26th, I visited our family temple and on the same day night I started to Chennai.
