The favourite of every one is Kari Dosai . Simply delicious . A single dosai cost around Rs 70 [When i visited last time ].It is combination of egg ,suka varuval and dosai.Have eaten Kari dosai in many places in Tamilnadu , but none of them are able to give this taste .

Some of other must haves are

Also their gravy they give for dosai and idly is utterly delicious .

Apart from these there are numbers of items made from Mutton ,which you could never seen or heard it before .

So next time when you are in Madurai , don't miss Konar Kadai and their Kari Dosai .Happy eating folks

Investment Tips - 1

When I met Saravanan Paramasivan in Scope during 2006 , my investment desire also started .It is he who guided me in all forms of Investment .sort of my investment Guru .Had come up long way from there . Thought of sharing some tips that I follow, with you all .Here is the first one

Almost everyone is paying Insurance premium of above 26,000 per year . When we try to yearly premium for this much amount, it is difficult for most of us .So generally I follow this idea ,which is quite handy for me .
Opening a Recurring deposit is the best option . For eg if  you have to pay a yearly premium of Rs 26,000 every year during May month , then open a RD for Rs 2300 on  June month for 1 year .So when the amount get matured by next year , take the amount and pay your premium amount .Immediately open a another RD for Next year. What more you get some extra amount as interest  also.

Now days opening a RD is very simple .We can open it thru online banking . Interest rate is also quite good .

Alternately we can open a Fixed deposit also for a Year and at the end of year , you can take the amount and pay your premium .

Hope you find this tip useful .Your valuable comments are welcomed.

AVM Rajeswari Theater


                                        Yesterday i got  a chance to see Movie at AVM Raejeswari Theater along with my spouse for the Movie Kullanari Koottam" . With a little doubt only , I went there as the first class ticket - [Box] is priced @ Rs 50 wondering how will be the service. But it turned out be remarkably unexpected experience . First of all , it's vacant place inside the theater complex. .A humongous one .Never seen in recent times such thing .Seating capacity was good , It was real worth for the money given . The most impressive thing was playing "National anthem before every show beginning. It was all of sudden .A slide asking people to stand for playing national anthem . All People got up and even some pople started to sing along with it . Is any theatre in India is following this nice gesture ? . Overall It somehow broguht be back to childhood days where I have seen movies in this kind of atmosphere . Just wondering , how they able to manage it with such minimum cost for ticket .While the so called high fi theaters -multiplex filling the pocket with Vitamin M .

To add cheery to it , was the movie itself .Kullanari Koottam was excellent . hope I will have this kind of experience in this theater in the coming days also .

Bravo - AVM Rajeswari Management
