The first regulars have arrived, all restaurants are open (including German Bakery) and in Ramana Supermarket variety expands. Chengam Road has doubled in width, not sure how many trees had to be cut for the opportunity to overtake an overtaking bus and the inner path is still «closed». Drumming circles, kirtan singing, yoga classes, salsa evenings and what not are happening… and that’s only the beginning, it’s supposed to be raining for another month. So far confirmed gurubrothers and sisters in crime are John de Ruiter and Madhukar. Nanagaru just came into town for a few days, ShivaShakti is giving Darshan again and slowly but surely the front-row seats at the evening singing in the Ashram are taken. The fighting over fresh veggies at the organic store is a spectacle in and of itself. Please note that one grumpy lady mixing and fixing her own bags. These and other natural phenomenons are to be witnessed here… welcome to Tiru. In the name of Silence… Of course. Arunachalam.
