Last Diwali, en route to Cochin, BAR in the car (that’s Babu Annie Rohan). Somewhere near Mettur, we saw a panchayat board – POTTANERI. ‘Potta, looks like just the right place for you!’, I told my son. Boo haa haa. Next village – ERUMADU. Wow! this really is getting better, I asked my wife, ‘Maad, your hometown? And was that your cousin on the roadside’. I was feeling very heppy and high till I saw the next signboard – KUNJANDIYUR. Pondatti gave me a look, and I decided to concentrate on the road.
