Today 30th April 2012 - the day before the Thrissur Pooram, we (me, my cousin Adarsh and my friend Amal Raj) went to see the Thrissur Pooram Chamayam. We started late at about 9:00Pm because Amal had work related issues. We went straight to see the Chamayam of Paramekkavu. We returned home at about 11:30PM.
My favorite band has one more single to their short but impressive list - This one called “Much Too Much” is ok..
Break it down to the sun
how you given me up.
Lay it down to the sea
how you’ve given me much too much.
Sing your song to the sky
as I’m walking you by.
There will be time to divide
what’s been breaking at us.
What’s been breaking at us.
On 29th April 2012 was Thrissur Pooram Sample fireworks. We four (me, my cousin Adarsh and my friends Amal Raj and Aneesh) went to see the sample fireworks. There was a hint of rain. A few drops were falling. And then Paramekkavu stared the fireworks. Even though its my thattakam, I must critisize them - the 1st kootaporichil was absolutely lame, boring. It was too lengthy - there was a lot of delay in between each gund. But the finish was good. Thrivambady’s kootaporichil was short but very brisk - I thought they did a good job. After that both parties tried out different amittu - both nothing new to talk about - but still ok. In the last both parties had kuzhi minnals - this they did ok.
In the end it didn’t rain.. and we returned home not very happy as we have seen better fireworks..But we are waiting for Thrissur pooram..

I went to Thrissur Pooram Exhibition on 27th April 2012 with my mother. We went on our bike and didn’t take any umbrella’s - since we didn’t see any signs of rain (lol.. big mistake!!).. The entrance fee is only Rs.5 for each person. This will increase to Rs.10 during the days of Thrissur Pooram.
By the time we were going through the stalls, rain had already started. We made some small purchases - I bought a steam vapouriser, my mom bought a small handbag.
I went to Pathirakkattu Temple located at Nadathara, Thrissur for pradistha dinam on 25th April 2012. I started from my home at about 4:00 PM. I had never been to this temple - so I had to ask for directions (which I hate). The main attraction for me was the panjari melam (which had already started by the time I reached the temple) conducted by Peruvanam Kuttan Marar. I really enjoyed it. After that there was a fireworks display (at nearby field - walking distanc eof about 5 min from the temple) which was decent. The started the fireworks at about 7:00PM - actually it was scheduled to be at 7:30PM - but they started it early due to fear of rain.
