Few Words about Mary Matha College

This college is situated in North Wayanad. We can reach the college by bus from Mananthavady. It is situated near to a forest, at the top of a hill. "A place of excellent natural beauty". I worked in this college as a lecturer in the department of computer science for one year starting from 2003 July. You can get more informations about the college from the following link MaryMatha

On 12th December 2004 I visited Mary Matha College to attend the seminar of M.Sc Computer Science students, along with Lijo Sebastian, my friend and Jose Abins who is my cousin working in Mind Tree Consulting Pvt. Ltd. Mind Tree


I remember the happy days in Mary Matha with my collegues Mr Thomas Monoth, Ms. Jisha T E and Mr. Govindraj E. Currently Lijo Sebastian is working in Accenture, Banglore as a test engineer and Mr. Govindraj E is doing his M.Tech Programme.

Update on 2nd Feb 2007

Kurisumala (Wayanad dist) Amazing landscape

On December 12 2004, I visited Kurisumala which is a hill situated very near to the Mysore forest. It is near to the border of Wayanad district. From the top of the montain(I think I can call it a Mountain) on one side we can see the beautiful Assam Brooke tea estate and on the east side we can see mountains which is actually Mysore forest. If we are lucky enough we can see roaming herds of elephant. But its dangerous in the sense, these elephants may some time climb up and reach Kurisumala. The people working in the tea estate will help us to know whether elephants are there currently on the top of Kurisumala

I went there along with my cousin Jose Abins Joseph, who is currently working in MindTree counsulting Pvt ltd, and along with Rajesh P K who is working as a lecturer in computer science of MCA Centre Muttil. Rajesh is staying near to the estate, who had been to this mountain probably more than 1000 times from his childhood.

I have a few photos which are actually reduced in size. If anybody wants the full size photos, mail me.

Thirunelli Temple - Wayanad

==>Trip to Thirunelli temple

==>Wayanad

==>Kurisumala


Thirunelli temple is situated in North Wayanad about 30 km away from Mananthavady. Its a place of tourist attraction for a long time. Its a place of charming silent beauty. Another attractions are the Papanasini river and Pakshipathalam.







The people belonging to the Hindu religion do their forefathers "Balikarma" in Papanasini River. Hindus believe that one who baths in this river gets relieved from all sins. The beautiful snowy mountains and the evergreen forest adds to the beaty.


The other attraction Pakshipathalam is a cave situated in the nearby forest to the temple. We should climb up the mountain 2-3 km from the temple to reach this place. No one has went into this deep cave, since its very dark and narrow. The cave is filled with lots of birds and bats. In the language Malayalam a bird is called "Pakshi" and uderground is called "Pathalam". Thus the name "Pakshipathalam" formed.






Nagarhola is a nearby tourist place which is situated in Karnataka state, and is a wild life sanctuary. There we can see animals like elephant, deers, monkeys, bison, pea-cocks, fox, jackals etc.

Sullurpetta

Last week, I visited Sullurpetta which is situated in Andha Pradesh. Its the nearest railway station to Sriharikotta- India's Rocket Launching station(ISRO). There I stayed with my brother Biju and family who is working as a scientist in ISRO.


My Brother And Family

This place is situated very near to the sea. Due to depression it was heavily raining throughout the day. Any way I a managed to see the near by places.

Naidupetta which is 7 km from Sullurpetta is a famous birds sanctuary.






Lots of migrating birds like flemingos visits this place during the months June to January. We can also see birds in the shallow waters on two sides of the way from Sullupetta to ISRO. Now the climate is very nice. But after 3 more months the temperature will rise upto 45-50 degree celcius. At that time its horrible to visit this place

Few Other Photos From The Location

How to Disable Stolen Mobile Phones



Suppose your cell phone is stolen. What will you do?
Here are some tips. Read it. Just in case you happen to lose your mobile or it gets flogged. To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following digits on your phone.

*#06#

A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. Should your phone get stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the Sim card your phone will be totally
useless.

You probably won't get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either.If everybody did this, there would be no point in stealing mobile phones.
