Some of the things I don’t usually do here are award nominations/ participation, challenges and serial types of continuation.
As such this is a slight variation in writing about a train journey on the second day.
In yesterday’s post, I mentioned that the train journey was the result of an unusually high fare for the flight. That means the savings are significant.
A strategic way to use the savings is shopping for a saree in Chennai, famous for the Kanchipuram variety.
Kanchipuram sarees are for inheritance, the sturdy, silky, elegant and beautiful sarees last more than a life time.
With the result the price also took off to beyond a multiple of train journeys.
For a solution, the weavers from Kanchipuram started machine made, still silk, comparatively affordable sarees.
My wife’s selection of the one in picture is a treat to the eye.
Smart way of using the extra cash by not flying, but going through a pilgrim’s journey to wash off some of the sins.
And the goddess is pleased.
