It isn't a Ghost town.

I have slight interest in Ghost town. It will have many buildings, but mostly abandoned; very less people, but probably we would know each other; we would be conducting some festivals as reminder of tow's past glory. It all seemed fascinating. Besides these, there will also some good scenes to enjoy.

That was the thought before I saw such a place in night. I was coming from Pattanam to Edayarpalayam that night. The time was around 22:30 and I was riding my bicycle very slowly. It was just couple of days then to full moon and these building which were on the roadside were partly visible in the silverlight. I heard foxes howling, dogs barking and birds flattering then. It felt like A Nightmare on Elm Street. Suddenly I felt a gust of cold wind and you know what? I never knew I could ride cycle that fast. That was end of all my fantasies about Ghost-towns.
By the next morning my courage was back and I went there to click some photos. Here it is for you. If you ever felt bored in night when you are nearby Vellalore, just visit there.

It is our responsibility

We all know that the Vellalore garbage yard is a big issue to the residents. There was a story behind the shifting of dumpyard from Kavundampalayam to here.

You may read the story here at: http://www.thehindu.com/news/cities/Coimbatore/why-coimbatore-corporation-moved-dump-yard-to-vellalore/article5111451.ece

The biggest issue is that the garbage has mixed waste of both degradable wastes like food and papers along with the non-degradable plastic. This made it impossible to process into manure or to pull out recyclables.

While it is on one side, the other end of Vellalore (Pattanam road) looks like it is being turned into dumpyard for medical wastes from small hospitals and medical clinics.

And there are some other issues too. There are couple of plastic companies and courier services located here. They seem to just throw away the plastic polyethylene bags away. It flies in the air and covers the land and when it gets swallowed by poor cattle, (you know what will happen then.)
The below photo was taken near Bluedart godown near pattanam road - Salem ByePass Junction.

Don't you feel responsible. Urge the respective panchayats (Vellalore and Pattanam) to take action.
Then we can shift to bigger problems like moving away the Dump yard.

wow. Eminem is so famous in Vellalore

I was actually awestruck when I saw this scene. +EminemVEVO  has recently released +RapGod and that didn't excite me. But take a look at these pics. If he has reached to such levels in India, He is definitely a RapGod.

Children playing in leftover water in Vellalore Lake in Summer

Vellalore lake dries up fast once the monsoon is over. They remain dry for most of the summer. 
But When summer onsets and starts drying up the Vellalur Lake, many ducks and birds refresh them in this lake's little water that is left. 


Nowadays the water is dirtied by pollution and sewage mixes. Many workshops and factories are situated nearby that could pollute the surroundings. The water in this lake is not at all fit for domestic use, but some children jumps inside and plays in it. (Nevertheless, the water is very dirty and much much less than hygienic. It poses a great risk of making them sick.) 


வெள்ளலூர் அணைக்கட்டில் வெய்யில் காலத்தில் நீர் மிக வேகமாக வறண்டுவிடும். அப்பொழுது பல பறவைகள் சுருங்கிக்கொண்டிருக்கும் நீர் நிலையில் தங்களது சூட்டை தனித்து கொள்ளும். கால்நடைகளும் இந்த நீரை பயன்படுத்தும். ஆனால் சமீபகாலமாக இந்த நீர் மிகவும் மோசமனான நிலையில் உள்ளதால் கால்நடைகள் கூட இந்த நீரை பருக்குவது இல்லை. இதை பற்றி சிறிதும் கவலை படாத சிறுவர்கள் மகிழ்ச்சியாக இந்த நீரில் விளையாடுகிறார்கள். ஆனால் இதன் மூலம் பல நோய்க்கிறுமிகள் பரவும் அபாயம் உள்ளது.
