Some interesting observations about Thirumala-Tirupathi! 

  1. Don't try to overtake a vehicle at a hair pin bend- It isn't a pleasing sight to see a TATA Sumo with two of its wheels in air!
  2. Don't be under any illusion that you can have a quick darshan.
  3. Don't think you can get accommodation (I mean decent accommodation) in the hills!
  4. When the private vehicle operators call you for a ride in Tirupathi to the uphill, beware it is actually for a ride!
  5. There is no point in reaching Tirupathi before 3.00 AM- You can't enter the hills before 3.00 AM (this is only if you are climbing the hills in a vehicle..if you are walking, then anytime is the best time).
  6. Don't carry any electronic instrument- I mean things like cellular phone, camera, video camera etc. I am not sure of an electronic watch though!
  7. If you hadn't planned for standing in the queue, then forget going to Tirupathi in the first place.
  8. At times, there is no big difference between the private accommodation and the locker facilities that are offered at throw away price by TTD itself.
  9. There is no difference in the Rs.5 and Rs.10 laddus that you get tokens for. Its just another way to create artificial demand!
  10. The longer you wait in the Sarvadarshan queue, the stronger is your hunger!
  11. The cost of living inside the huge halls that you wait for in Sarvadarshan is higher than the most costliest metropolis in the world. You get 25ml of tea for Rs.5
  12. There are no (almost) private hotels in Thirumala. TTD is the monopoly for accommodation at the hills.
  13. The men at the laddu-token counter are more powerfull than the GOD himself.
  14. Often, the Kalyaanosthavams that are advertised are more crowded than the sarvadarshans.
  15. The most interesting programs in the TV would come at the fag end of your waiting period in the cells!
  16. Ramayan is more interesting to watch now, than it was 15 years ago!

Nothing can be truer man. But i think the mottai-makers are powerful than ladoo-givers.
