Madurai


A city which never sleeps.
one that is as ancient as Athens,
echoes music all through the year.
 It is a place of trade and transaction,
 a seat of learning hosting the 3 Sangams
 where Tamil literature flourishes.

Braving invasions, the town
remains complacent
 and modest bereft of ostentation,
 it is a destination unsuitable for snobs
 extends a home to those who love
 simplicity and who practise
 modesty.

Like the Shrine of Meenakshi
 whose towers cast a benevolence
 this place called “Madurai “
 remains intact for some 2500 year.
 An historic city. with few shortcomings.
where the sun shines brighter
than elsewhere.
