Opulence of a bygone era

Image

From a queen’s court to young scholars frequenting a schoolroom, to presently housing precious artefacts, the Rani Mangammal Hall breathes of history through the ages.

‘D o you know where is the government museum?’, a question that draws responses ranging from blank stares to deep frowns from locals even in the vicinity of the museum. A mention of Town Hall or the Fort Police Station as landmarks apparently rings a bell as comprehension dawns on relieved countenances.

When you enter the Tiruchi Government Museum housed in the Mangammal Mahal or Rani Mangammal Durbar Hall, the tainted walls and commonplace technical stuff eclipsing the motif decorated dome ceiling and white pillars, force you to conjure up the opulence of a bygone era. The dome, resembling a flower petal with motifs and vegetable paintings only heightens the creative exploration.

It is amazing to travel back in time to picture that a Queen once held court here. From being the grand audience hall of an admired sovereign, the structure has played host to government offices and school rooms in the British era to currently housing artefacts bearing testimony to a vast timeline. The hall accommodates a mélange of objects including stuffed animals and birds, stone sculptures, coins fossils, prehistoric tools, agricultural implements and Thanjavur paintings.

Rani Mangammal was the consort of Chokanatha Nayakkan of the Madurai Nayaks, who is accredited with erecting the Palace, which incorporates the Queen’s audience hall - the most prominent of the remnants. Standing south of the towering Rock Fort, the palace of the Nayaks was referred to as Nawab’s Palace during the occupation of the Nawab. Incidentally, Chokanatha is believed to have pillaged materials from the Tirumala Nayak Palace in Madurai to construct the Tiruchi palace in the mid seventeenth century.

Rani Mangammal was one among the scattered solitary stars dotting the firmament of male monarchs of Tamil Nadu. She was no transient star, as history will always remember her for her able administration and initiation of development works such as roads, temples and tanks. The daughter of Lingama Nayaka, a general under Chokanatha army, Mangammal was forced to rule Madurai Nayaka Kingdom as Queen Regent on behalf of her infant grandson. For eighteen years, Mangammal bravely weathered political storms including Mughal threats of invasion.

F.R.Hemingway in the Trichinopoly Gazetteer mentions that the palace ‘surmounted by octagonal dome with colonnades all around’ was occupied by the stationary sub-magistrate during his time. While Lewis Moore, another historian has recorded that the Palace housed government offices during British time. According to Moore, after repairs carried out on the Palace in 1878, the plan of converting the Audience Hall to a municipal office was abandoned. Instead, the schoolrooms of the Normal School functioned from here during mid 19 th century.

The museum is open from 10 am to 5 pm and entry is permitted for a nominal fee of Rs.5. Exhibitions on numismatics, sea life and artifacts are held here on a regular basis.

Trichy, rich in heritage and history

From the pages of literature to the minds of historians, Trichy occupies a special place. Here's a look at all the things that our city can call its very own...

Trichy is a city of a million sounds and sights. From the picturesque banks of Cauvery to the grand old Trichinopoly cigars, from the natural wonder Rockfort to religious shrines aplenty, there's something for everyone who visits the city...

Rockfort
A 3,800 million year old rock structure with a shrine on top is considered to be older than the Himalayas and is the pride of the city. It is visible for miles around the city and a view from the top, is mesmerizing either by sunrise or sunset.

River Cauvery
The town is on the banks of the River Cauvery making it one of the most fertile regions in the state. A walk on the Cauvery bridge, a dip in the river and some classical music - this would make a perfect outing for most Trichiites.

Trichinopoly Cigar
Winston Churchill has claimed to have a long standing affair with this; Sherlock Holmes has said to have mentioned it in his books and Trichinopoly is synonymous with Cigar in the Oxford Dictionary - that is how world famous the cigar of the region is.

Grand Anicut
One of the oldest dam built around 2000 years is said to be a symbol of Dravidian engineering. Built by Karikala Cholan, it is used a model for building modern day architecture - probably one of the oldest used dams in the world.

Srirangam temple
The biggest functioning Hindu temple in the world Srirangam, is the sacred amongst the Vaishnavites. The temple is on the island, Srirangam and the mythological stories that surrounds the history of the temple is fascinating.

The Southern Railways
Established in 1890 with its headquarters at the city, The Southern Railways played a prominent role during the British Raj. However, now it has been shifted to Chennai - the Golden Rock Workshop is still one of the three mechanical workshops serving the Southern railways till date.

Natharvalli Dargah
A 1000 year old mosque once an Easwaran Temple - it is the tomb of Baba Natharvalli. It stands as a symbol of how the Trichiites are a group of peace loving people who accept all religions and co exist in harmony throughout the years!!

Lady of Lourdes church
A replica of the Lourdes Church in France is situated within St. Joseph's Ccollege compounds. Gothic architecture, intricately stained glass panels with its towering spire makes it remarkable of Indian craftsmanship.

Book lovers come together in Trichy

The Trichy Book Club was formed after Freemason Rev. Bishop Thorpe decided that the book reviews done during the Masonic meetings where restricted only to the Freemasons and its members. Since then it has been more than 30 years old and is still going strong — just like how young the members are at heart despite their age. The club is a forum for all literary aficionados who for the love of reading, meet up and review books voicing their opinions. The only rule is that the reviews have to do in English — a language that they all seem to love.

Dilijit Shah, a jeweller and an avid reader of books tells with excitement that he was the only young member in the early days. "When I joined the club I used to be the youngest and be really thrilled about coming here for discussions. There were professors, people who had immense knowledge on books and so many others who would come here just to be part of this bunch of people. These were people I could relate to and share my passion with — we are all here for one thing reading."
That is the true spirit of the club as it has resurrected in a manner when it was on the verge of dying. The group has been revived over the past four years with the help of Prema Nandakumar, a literary critic who says it was dying out due to that not many people were ready to take up charge. "We began to fall apart because people had other priorities to handle and to fit in this was very difficult due to time constraints. Most importantly, we have no formal structure nor any strict rules or codes to follow — it is a voluntary organization and anyone interested can join." She further quips "But then it began slowly coming back to us — the club never died it just went into momentary relapse and was restored in proper condition."

Manjula Balagopal, a homemaker is the one who arranged for these meetings after the reincarnation tells the rest of them. However, she tells us it is all about how passionate everyone used to be in turning up for meetings, which made it all the more wonderful to make the arrangements. "I used to assemble sometimes it would to be very few of us who turned up, but in recent times we make it a point for all of us despite hectic work schedules. Then we had issues with reviewing as speakers might drop out in the last minute — then we would shuffle amongst ourselves and do a lecture with some English professor in order not to disappoint anybody. All these small things led up to the restoration of the club. Now every month these are meetings that we look forward to anxiously."
The reviews go one for an hour or more where there is uninterrupted talk by a speaker and by the end of which there is a questionnaire session. This method they say is one which they have followed from the British period. Being a conservative group they reinvent the classics and also arrange authors to either visit or talk over the phone. They write to celebrities to make them talk over the phone if they are unable to come to the city — like Gurucharan Das who has spoken to them recently. Brigadier Narayanasamy Balasubramanian, a management consultant, tells that these are small matters which make it more interesting. "We write to celebrities and authors who also take pains in talking to us after seeing how enthusiastic we are about the whole book."

A new chapter
Prema Nandakumar, a literary critic and one of the earliest members of the club is an important part of the reading group. She, currently arranges all book club meetings at her place in Srirangam. In recent times, Prema played a pivotal role in reviving the club.

திருச்சியில் திடீர் மழை மின்னல் தாக்கியதில் பனை மரம் தீப்பிடித்தது

திருச்சி, : திருச்சியில் நேற்று தீடீரென மழை பெய்தது. மின்னல் தாக்கியதில் பனை மரம் தீப்பிடித்தது. தென் மேற்கு பருவமழை பொய்த்த நிலையில் திருச்சியில் கடந்த சில நாட்களாக பகலில் வெயில் கொளுத்தியது. நேற்று முன்தினம் முதல் மாலையில் மழைக்கான அறிகுறி தென்பட்டது. இந்நிலையில் நேற்று மாலை கரு மேகங்கள் திரண்டு குளிர்ந்த காற்று வீசியது. இரவு 7 மணி அளவில் மழை பெய்ய துவங்கியது. அவ்வப்போது பலமாகவும், தூரலாகவும் நள்ளிரவு 12 மணி வரை மழை நீடித்தது. அப்போது எ.புதூர் இந்திராநகரில் பனை மரத்தில் மின்னல் தாக்கியதில் மரத்தின் உச்சி தீப்பிடித்து எரிந்தது. அப்பகுதியினர் கொடுத்த தகவலின்பேரில் திருச்சி தீயணைப்பு வீரர்கள் விரைந்து வந்து தீயை அணைத்தனர். மழையால் மாநகரில் மத்திய பஸ் நிலையம், டிவிஎஸ் டோல்கேட் உள்ளிட்ட பல்வேறு பகுதியில் நீர் தேங்கியது. வாகன ஓட்டிகள் அவதியடைந்தனர்.
