Tasted the water of a salt pan ….yucky!!!! leaves you soooo thirsty!

Got caught red handed committing a crime and yet let free – went triples on my scooter during college days, got caught by a traffic policeman, who let me go with a warning 😀

Never had a crush – I know…been made fun of and have been told I have not experienced something vital in life 🙂 and I totally love that person!

Got stuck in the middle of nowhere cos you ran out of gas – ended up playing games with co-passengers till the situation was fixed 🙂  This was on the way back to Chennai from Kalahasthi

Being a Hindu…
Been to all the cosmic dance halls of Shiva…Pancha Sabha Temples: Chidambaram (gold), Madurai  (silver), Tirunelveli (copper), Tiruvalankadu (ruby) and Kutralam  (lotus) are revered as the five Cosmic Dance halls of Shiva. – Almost…The Ruby one pending 😦

Been to all the Pancha bhoota Shiva stalas .. Tiruvannamalai, Kanchipuram, Tiruvaanaikkaval, Kalahasti and Chidambaram  are five grand temples enshrining Shiva as a manifestation of the five elements. Almost Tiruvaanaikkaval pending 😦

Well I guess if I list the temples visited or to be visited…it will be an entire post 🙂 I love these temples. The architecture, the history, the significance!!  Guess I am not that much of an atheist after all 😉

I also suppose that this list is pretty volatile, one can add, modify or delete.

I am not tagging anyone on this. I just leave it open to anyone and everyone who wants to take this one up 😀 if they have not already done it.

    No Reema, though Chidambaram features in both lists…the significance of both sets is different. One is a set of the temples of Cosmic dance halls and the other set of the manifestation of the five elements. I have not written them twice 🙂
