Beware of destructive Virus

I have received this info from a well-wisher:


Emails with pictures of Osama Bin-Laden hanged are being sent. If you get an email along the lines of 'Osama Bin Laden Captured' or 'Osama Hanged', don't open the attachment.This virus may also be received from a friend or someone who has your e-mail address in his/her contact list.
Do not open any message with an attached file called 'Invitation' regardless of who sent it.
The moment that you open these emails your computer will crash and you will not be able to fix it!
It is a virus that opens an Olympic Torch which 'burns' the whole hard disc C of your computer.This virus simply destroys the Zero Sector of the Hard Disc, where the vital information is kept.

Do not open it. Delete it and shut down your computer immediately.This is the worst virus announced by CNN, it has been classified by Microsoft as the most destructive virus ever. This virus was discovered by McAfee recently, and there is no repair yet for this kind of virus.

A memorable visit to Bhadrachalam

During June last week, we visited Bhadralachalam [325 Kms from Hyderabad,Andhra Pradesh in South India] for two days. My family members and relatives-a group of 5 in all spent two days in Bhadrachalam- a famous pilgrim shrine, the abode of Lord Rama, situated at the bank of holy river Godavari. We enjoyed for two days the pilgrimage and Rotary Club District Awards event.

The main attraction is the famous Rama temple built in the 17th century. It has the four-armed idol of Ram holding a bow, arrow, conch shell and the chakra, accompanied by his wife Sita and brother Lakshman. We walked along River Godavari, took few snaps and sprinkled water on head as a custom. I captured this picture near Godavari river.


PARNASHALA is about 35 Kms from Bhadrachalam on the banks of River Godavari. This is supposed to be the exact spot where Rama, during his vanavasa in Dandakaranya, constructed a hermitage and spent his exile with his concert Sita and brother Laxmana. The picturesque display of some scenes of vanavasa could be seen at Parnashala. We could see the foot prints of Sita Devi, Mosaic of Maarecha in the guise of golden deer and Ravana in the guise of Sanyasi for Bhikshatana. We have visited another place in the vicinity Sita Vaagu-where she had bathed and marks of her saree on the fock near Sita Vaagu. We had a brief boat ride in river Godavari at this place though we could not visit due to cancellation of plying of cruise to PAAPIKONDALU picnic spot [50 Kms from Bhadrachalam, where mighty river Godavari narrows down and passes through a stretch of hills and the resultant picturesque is visitor's delight.
It was a glittering Annual event attended by about 400 Rotarians with their family members from various other places. I have joined Rtn. Sivakumar who received 7 Awards on behalf of Rotary Club of Secunderabad West, in recognitions of various service projects by the Club, particularly for the services rendered by me as Director-Vocational Service for the mega Career Seminar on Bio-technology. It was the best satisfaction to us as the recognitions were accorded in a Holy place like Bhadrachalam. We were accommodated in Guest House of Andhra Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation. We have not seen such a big property of APTDC any where else,which has elegant rooms + sprawling lawns + restaurant attached.

The e-abode of Rama is on the web site of Sree Seetha Ramachandra Swamy Vaari Devastanam integrated with audio of Raamdaasa keertana as I browse its home page. I have been listening to it several times while I was compiling this blog.
