I was not sure of the time when ppl are gonna meet up, and when came to know, it was too late.. But its better late than never, my fellow CTCian was giving me directions to move towards the point where everyone have assembled.. Midway, she got a call about the decision to cut cake in Thiruvanmiyur Beach instead of the Home..
Grouped at the place(Sangeetha Restaurant-Velachery), few handshakes, few intros, few past memories... all done, together we moved towards the beach.. Once in beach, 3 grps were formed and each started building their own castle... one after the other everyone completed, took pictures and then demolished the castle...
Then came the actual ceremony of Cake Cutting, Birthday boys(Vadivel, Deepal and Kaushik) assembled and Cake was cut in the midst of the Birthday Song... as soon as the cake was cut, it was split into pieces, with Cream Facial on all 3 BDay Babies... Kids enjoyed the awesome and delicious cake with volunteers..
Rakesh was having a FootBall and was shouting at top of his voice for the kids to join him.. But all went in vain as Kids were busy with Cakes and SandCastle...A Grp Pic was taken and everyone started back to Home..
Once back home, everyone settled themselves for Dinner( Delicious Fish Curry/ Fish fry/ Prawn Curry/ Chicken Curry - and for veggies.. Sambar,Rasam, poriyal, appalam). Peter was busy in supervising the proceedings... And then he sat with Vadivel for 1st Rd and Sinu for 2nd rd of his Dinner .. Meanwhile, Rakesh, Kaushik and Thangaprakasam displayed us with what we call COLLABORATIVE TEAM EFFORT... look for pictures..
Thanks to the Bday Boys and all the volunteers who made it to the visit...
I am taking the unusual step of sending this direct request because I believe that the announcement by the PMO on the 25th anniversary of Chernobyl, to continue with the proposed French-built nuclear power park at Jaitapur is a serious mistake with long term implications for our people.
Along with several others I participated in the “Tarapur to Jaitapur” Yatra (march) in Maharashtra, to protest against the proposed nuclear plant in Jaitapur. We did not reach Jaitapur because many of us were detained/arrestedfor participating in this peaceful protest.
It is well known that the Jaitapur nuclear plant is on an earthquake-prone zone  and the French EPR reactors have not yet been tested anywhere in the world. Surprisingly the government has rejected the demands to cancel the project, which will result in the loss of land and livelihoods for many. Further, the government has shown disregard for the views of the many scientists, academics, military and other citizens from the rest of the country calling for a review of its earlier decisions on nuclear power plants.
Apart from announcing the creation of an independent regulatory board to ensure safety standards, the government has taken no action on the widespread demand for a complete fresh review of nuclear energy policy in the country. We need to tell Prime Minister Manmohan Singh that he cannot ignore serious concerns raised by the people of this country.
You should send a fax to the PM asking him to stop the Jaitapur nuclear plant.
Add your signature to the message and we will fax it to the PM for you. 73,000 petition signatures opposing this plant have already been delivered to the PM. Now a large number of faxes asking him to stop the plant will make it difficult for him ignore the demand.
Safe and clean renewable energy options and energy efficiency can help meet our energy demands, all of which are available and at a much lower cost than nuclear. The government needs to invest in these instead of dangerous nuclear energy. Tell the PM to stop this dangerous plant now!
