National consumer fair's exhibition under way

Image

TIRUCHI: Tiruchiites have reason to celebrate this month. For a city starved of entertainment, the Bangalore-based National Consumer Fair's exhibition comes as a welcome relief.

The exhibition is organised at the National College Grounds on the Dindigul Main Road, Karumandapam between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. till August 15.

A miniature waterfall at the entrance of the exhibition, with water cascading from a height of forty feet is a refreshing spectacle.

What strikes you at first sight are the various amusement rides scattered over the spot like the Mary Columbus, Dragon train, Break dance, Giant wheel and Dashing cars. Do not miss the eight minute heady jaunt on the Italian Tora Tora!

According to Vijayan, the Manger of the National Consumer Fair, an aquarium, a bird show, a 3D show and a horror house would soon enhance the entertainment.

For shopaholics and bargain hunters alike, there's plenty to choose from, be it imported furniture, sleek kitchen appliances or the latest gadgets.

Neatly laid out stalls in an indoor set-up ensure the rain does not play spoilsport.

An impressive electronics section showcases all leading brands of televisions, refrigerators, washing machines, air conditioners and other household appliances.

Imported rubber wood furniture from China and Malaysia including compact wooden shoe cupboards, foldable steel cots which double up as couches and trendy wall units at competitive prices are inviting, And the grandfather clock ticking away solemnly in a corner is sure to catch your eye!

Exclusive stalls are devoted to glittering rows of imitation jewellery, handlooms from Erode and Panipat, Kolkata Shantiniketan leather bags, Jaipur lac bangles and condiments and spices from across India. A magic store has kids crowding around it while the salesperson demonstrates various tricks and trades.

Sample these- Benaras chilly, apple dates and pepper garlic.

Wonder what's common-they are among the 20 varieties of Rajasthani pickles stocked in the pickle stall!

Shopping is sure to whet your appetite. Fear not, for there are the typical charming stalls all exhibitions would be incomplete without-hot molaka bajjis, masala pappads, chaats and of course, cotton candy!

Mukkombu- An ancient attraction

Image
Mukkombu attracts a large number of tourists


Mukkombu, near Tiruchi, is one of the important picnic spots, attracting a large number of tourists, particularly the youth, students and children. It is here that the Cauvery not only assumes its majestic form “Akanda Cauvery” but also branches off into Coleroon at the head of Srirangam.

Hence, during the monsoon and whenever the Cauvery is in spate, it is a sheet of water all around Mukkombu.

A sprawling area of amusement park, Mukkombu is also noted for its water-sports.

In the olden days, there was no water regulatory system such as anicut or dam at Mukkombu. Diversion of irrigational water from the river to the fields was done through mud “korambu” – a tough job.

In 1836, Major H.C. Cotton constructed an anicut at an estimate of Rs. two lakh, at Mukkombu, which has come to be known as Upper Anicut. The bridge and sluices were designed and built by Captain Edward Lawford in 1846. During 1973-74, a check dam was constructed at an outlay of Rs. 2.12 crore.

How to reach there: Mukkombu, about 18 km west of Tiruchi, is well-connected by road on the Tiruchi-Karur highway. A number of Town route buses are being operated from the Chathiram Bus Stand.

What to see: Amusement park, environment-friendly ecological scenery and water sports.
