Saturday Market ~100 Days in Namakkal - Part 2


If the success of a post lies in making a few nostalgic, a few excited, a few proud, a few encourage, a few comment, a few share, a few mail, a few call, a few obsessive and a few weep, the previous post was!

Thanks for the overwhelming response and  the pleasantest surprises I was offered by you! Feeling glad that the post is reaching and being received well, than I expected. Here lies the ultimate contentment of a blogger.

I had planned to visit a few schools in town but then since the exams are going on, hesitated to end up with complications. The visit to the poultry farms to for the chicks and eggs was almost confirmed but got cancelled the last minute.

No regrets as I secretly wished to cover the weekend market and make the post exclusive.

So, as planned, I visited the Sanikizhamai Santhai or the Saturday market , which is open the whole day, in the evening with a large eco bag that got back home empty!
I skipped to shop!

...hold my hands and I'll take you around...the pictures are going to speak with you..

















my favorite is reserved for the last!



 I can never forget the 110 days you pampered me in your lap. You mothered me like my home town, which I'll cherish for a life time!
Wouldn't miss a chance to be back to your warmth, anytime...
Namakkal, I love you and miss you!

 Have no words to thank,
 my loving fathers-in-law who made the posts possible in every way.
 my dear readers, fb friends and cousins-in-law for the unending support and cheer. 


  1. It was such a nice feeling that the town I usually take for granted been introduced to me through someone who spent 100+ days there and fell in love! Ironic as it may sound, I have never been to the sandhai! It is refreshing to see the mounds of vegetables and stuff there.
    I am sad that you are leaving soon, it would have been nice if you had stayed a wee bit longer and clicked the ten day long car festival. i am hoping that th shops are already coming up.
    Thank you :)

  9. I love going to Santhai. You have captured some awesome scenes of it. Looking at the photos, it made me realize that every single person selling something is a self made entrepreneur. Isn't that so great. Most of them are women. Namakkal, looks beautiful through your eyes. I am sure you will have a lot of memories to cherish.
