"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

Want to buy a new home?
Looking for investment opportunities?

Need to make sense of life’s conundrums?
Or choose the perfect gift for characters in search of an author

Here, whatever you’re after, there’ll be someone who’s selling it.

The Temple Approach


From breakfast in Thanjavur to the grand and ancient temple of Trichy

The temple approach provides a thriving business enterprise zone.
All is for sale:

From kitchen utensils

To human hair, newly shorn from the faithful – an act of religious piety.


Everyone appears to be involved

In either shopping,

Or fixing deals:

A heaving mass of bustling commerce which the children sit back and enjoy.
