Terry Fox- Pencil shading

Image
Terrance Stanley "Terry" FoxCCOD (July 28, 1958 – June 28, 1981) was a Canadian athlete, humanitarian, and cancer researchactivist. In 1980, with one leg having been amputated, he embarked on a cross-Canada run to raise money and awareness for cancer research. Although the spread of his cancer eventually forced him to end his quest after 143 days and 5,373 kilometres (3,339 mi), and ultimately cost him his life, his efforts resulted in a lasting, worldwide legacy. The annual Terry Fox Run, first held in 1981, has grown to involve millions of participants in over 60 countries and is now the world's largest one-day fundraiser for cancer research; over C$600 million has been raised in his name

Madras-375

I know you are not perfect,
But we are definitely connected!

You are a major cultural, economic and educational centre
That makes us awe you with splendour!

You are the Gateway to South India,
which is as colourful as Zinnia!

Thousands of people gathered on the beautiful Marina beach
Some came to listen while others came to preach

One of Chennai's biggest assets is its people,
infectiously enthusiastic about their home town.

They won't hit you with a lot of hustle and hassle,
and they will mostly treat you as a guest rather than a Puzzle!!.

Happy Bday Madras!!! :)

My small contribution on this Madras Day!!!

    In the Battle of mahabharatha,  Karna and Arjuna came face to face and the battle began in earnest!!!!!!Each was Master of his craft and all those around stopped to watch---so over-awed were they by the ferocity and the prowess of both the Warriors.While Krishna's dexterity as a charioteer saved Arjuna many a time,Karna lost his charioteer to an arrow struck by Arjuna.The thick muddy slush of the Battlefield created by the ferocious destruction of Man and Animal held Karna's chariot captive.Karna jumped out to free his chariot ,but it was badly stuck and was sinking deeper and deeper in the muddy slush it was then Krishna asked Arjuna to continue the battle.

When Krishna killed Kansa in Mathura, Jarasandha become enraged because of Krishna and the entire Yadavas clan on seeing his two daughters being widowed. So, Jarasandha attacked Mathura and the Yadavs 17 times. Once his army included the Panchalas and the Kurus among other kings of India. While Krishna and the Yadavs's survived the attacks, sensing danger Krishna relocated his capital city to Dwaraka. 
Dwaraka was an island and it was not possible for anyone to attack it at all. Krishna began a campaign to diminish the power of Jarasandha, one by one eliminating his powerful allies like Kalyavana, Narakshura, Hansha, Dimbaka. . In an another incident when Jarasandha arrests Sakuni…

சென்னைவாசியின் தாகம்- தமிழ் அன்னையிடம் !

மாற்றம் வேண்டும் அன்னையே !
மாற வேண்டும் சென்னையே!

ஆற்றுமணலை அள்ளும்  கொடுமை
அற்றுப் போக வேண்டுமே!
வறண்டு கிடக்கும் நதியிலெல்லாம் 
நீரோட வேண்டுமே!

மாரி கொண்டுவந்து சேர்த்த 
நீரினாலே சென்னையிலே! 
ஏரி, குளம் ,குட்டையெல்லாம…
