Banks of Vaigai to Seine..

Today I was going through some blog sites, I came across few MKU (Madurai Kamaraj University) blogs and photos.I did my Masters in Biology from MKU. I feel my life started from MKU, that was my first time away from family, was in hostel... Started seeing the 'real' world, till then I was a over protected and pampered girl, with family and drivers escorting me everywhere. Last 6 years, starting from MKU, Madurai..and Bangalore and Now in Paris..I feel my life started flowing like a wild river, without any dams, from the banks of vaigai to the seine...towards a destiny unknown...
I took these pictures from a MKU blog site, that's the main entrance of the university, popularly called as "main gate", the meeting place for the evening coffee and mid night tea... The second picture is the MuVa Hall, where I wrote all my masters exams,I still remember sitting there with a bunch of friends studious friends, asking them to tell the stories(summary) of different chapter which they learnt the previous night, specially from Sathesh who is now in a very good scientist position in NIH, USA. I cleared all my exams just by listening to the last minute stories from Sathesh.WOW! Good old days! Thanks to MKU manipulators group for bringing back the good old memories!
