The shrine is the latest among places of worship that are moving to ERP solutions to manage donations and daily activities. The Tirupati temple at Tirumala, the Meenakshi Amman temple at Madurai, the Gajanan Maharaj Temple at Shegaon and the Mata Vaishno Devi temple at Katra are the other major ones to adopt technology.

All activities at the Madurai Meenakshi Amman temple, for example, are recorded with IT help. The temple’s main festival , the Chithirai festival, can now be viewed online. Even the Meenakshi Amman Tirukalyanam — the festival of god’s marriage — has also been made online and has had 10,000 hits.

Not just that, e-darshan of every pooja is possible. Also, anyone can retrieve a specific pooja and see it online. There is a video streaming server at the temple, which can perform live poojas at any time. The Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments Department, which manages temples across Tamil Nadu, wants to replicate this model in temples at Rameshwaram and Thiruthani. The temple also manages all it accounts with the help of an ERP solution. “We designed an ERP for the Madurai Meenakshi Amman temple. There is a huge funds flow on a day-to-day basis and we felt the need for an ERP for them,” says Winways Systems managing director R Sivarajah, the firm which provided the ERP for the temple. Meenakshi Amman is not Winways’ only client: they serve three more big temples and 20 small ones. “Providing IT and ERP for temples is a potential segment,” he says.

A new state-of-the-art car driving simulator has come to the city. The driving school is well equipped with infrastructure and has experienced instructors to train students.

Its not easy and quickly to stabilize the power cuts. My uncle who is working as senior officer in EB department says it will take at least a year to stabilize it. Because of last government's political pressure they never allow them to stop power for maintenance work. This was one of the main reason for few power units got repair.

[img]Corporation%20employees%20removing%20furniture%20and%20other%20paraphernalia%20used%20by%20shopkeepers%20from%20Mattuthavani%20Integrated%20Bus%20Stand%20in%20the%20city%20on%20Thursday.%20Photo:%20G.%20Moorthy[/img]

In a major eviction drive, Corporation officials on Thursday removed all unauthorised shops and paraphernalia that had encroached upon the public utility space in Mattuthavani Integrated Bus Stand. The bus stand wears a new look with enough space for passengers to move around.

The drive comes in the wake of Collector U. Sagayam, who is also the Regional Transport Authority, issuing a stern warning to the Corporation officials of cancelling the license to the bus stand if it did not conform to the original plan of the facility. During an inspection on Saturday, the Collector found that many shops had cropped up at all vacant space, including the pathway, the lanes and the passenger waiting halls.

He also found rampant usage of cooking gas cylinders in many shops that did not possess necessary license from the local body.

On Thursday, the Corporation officials, ably assisted by the city police, removed the encroachments. Huge showcases of sweets stalls, furniture, refrigerators and cooking utensils and eatables were removed. “Four truck loads of goods were seized. These goods would not be returned to the shopkeepers,” Corporation Commissioner S. Sebastine said.

The main corridor connecting all the eight bays was now wider. Earlier, the shopkeepers had spread all their paraphernalia not only outside their shops but also beyond the yellow line painted on the pathway thus “unofficially” demarcating the permissible space, a police official said. Many shops had come up on the pathway with shelves fixed on the walls of other shops.

LICENCE NOT RENEWED

In a shocking revelation, an official said that the Corporation has not renewed the license for the bus stand for some years now. The Commissioner said that efforts were being taken to get the license renewed. “It is only paper work,” he said. Mr. Sebastine said that licenses of shops that were illegally using gas cylinders for cooking would be cancelled.

The Collector said that officials would ensure that the passenger waiting halls could be used by the public.

At least 39 omni-buses were found to have violated the Motor Vehicles Act on different accounts, following which the authorities imposed fines and collected road taxes of about Rs.2 lakh due to the government.

The Transport Department authorities, in coordination with the traffic police organised joint checks at Fatima College junction, by-pass road, Periyar bus stand, Maatuthavani and Tallakulam among other locations, organised a simultaneous check on instructions from the District Collector U. Sagayam.

The teams comprised RTOs N. Ravichandran (Madurai North), G. Thomas (Madurai Central) and K. Natarajan (Madurai South) accompanied by other officials.

During the checks, the sleuths found that many omni-buses carried goods atop the roof beyond the stipulated norms.

The first-aid box was empty, while a few buses had not remitted the fee for permit or did not obtain valid permit or taxes to ply the buses.

After issuing check reports, the officials collected Rs.1,88,420 as road tax from erring motorists and fines of Rs 6,400.

The teams also identified that the head lights on omni-buses did not carry the black spot stickers on its cover as a result of which many motorists' coming on the opposite direction experienced blurred vision and involved in road accidents.

In another location, the officials impounded vehicles, which included goods vehicle, auto rickshaw and two-wheelers after the motorists' allegedly admitted to having consumed liquor and driving.

Bigger and better this time, ‘The Hindu Metroplus Lifestyle Show 2011' vows to wow you. So barge in and binge

Folks, charge your shopping hormones and sharpen your bargaining skills. Madurai's biggest shopping bonanza, the Hindu Metroplus Lifestyle Show 2011, is here for the sixth consecutive time, bringing joy and cheer to the city's denizens. Finally, the long wait is over and now, under one roof, shoppers can pick up everything on their wish list.

The Lifestyle Show descends today on the Tamukkam Grounds, with the best premium and branded products, and will lure you in for five festive days (till July 11). From fancy knick-knacks to expensive consumer goods, you will get them all at this mega spread.

The sweat-free shopping venue, erected with amazing workmanship over 40,000 sq. ft, is almost a makeshift mall with 130 stalls. Dubbed the largest lifestyle fair in South India, the show is known for its assorted high-end products and an unparalleled ambience.

Now is the time to jump in and splurge, for nowhere else in the city will you get such an assortment of premiere and branded products, including stylish furniture and elegant soft furnishings, cosmetics and perfumes, modern kitchen gadgets, snazzy electronics and the latest information technology products, dazzling diamonds, fashionable textiles, fast-moving consumer goods, luxury products, items for interior decor, and classy art and handicrafts. Literally, anything and everything you can think of.

Displaying the best in terms of both variety and quality gives manufacturers and retailers at such fairs a chance to showcase their latest products and get closer to customers. It also proves to be a good brand building ground to know what customers want and give them the best lifestyle buys.

The show, as it does every year, has surprises in store for everyone in the family. Women especially will get a chance to replenish their wardrobes, spruce up their collections and strike new style statements. Several designer boutiques from Chennai and Bangalore will offer charming and exotic spreads of silk, satin and chiffon in traditional and contemporary designs.

For families who want to deck up their homes, householders who are quality conscious, shoppers who are curious about new gadgets, the fashion cognoscenti and buyers who positively must be stylish, there is something for all.

Offerings to pep up your home include colourful wall-hangings, high quality beds and bed linen, elegant lamp shades, and upholstery material in unique designs and pastel colours. The show brings in brands that are usually difficult to find in Madurai.

If you are making major changes at home, you can liven up your living room with imported furniture from China or put in a classy ‘Elica' kitchen. Hindware, Tata and Faber are the other players displaying kitchen accessories at the fair.

Those on the lookout to buy new cars can make their dreams come true at an exclusive automobile pavilion. Maruti, Yamaha and Toyota will display their glitzy products. Toyota will roll out its new small hatchback, Liva. Yamaha is also launching its new bikes.

Tech-freaks can hit on a wide variety of electronic gadgets put up by Samsung, LG, Panasonic and Voltas. When all those rounds of shopping have drained you, stop by the food court to recharge and refresh, and then sally forth again.

“The highlights this year round are the stores from Thailand that deal with home decor,” says Riyaz, iAds and Events, Bangalore. “Decorative artifacts will be on offer for people to step up their lifestyle.”

Apart from these, the mega event will showcase a jute pavilion of 24 stalls that will bring in an astounding variety of jute products from far and wide. “We expect a turnout of around 30,000,” says Riyaz. “The show this year will be a platform for serious buying and selling.”

The associate sponsors for the event are Yamaha, Voltas and Maruti Suzuki. The show is open from 10.30 a.m. to 8.30 p.m. daily. The entry ticket is Rs. 20 per person and there is ample free parking within the ground.
