A College in disguise

.We were returning from a visit to a knitwear factory at Tiruppur near Coimbatore. While we were about 10/12 kilometres away from our destination, a ship like structure became visible from a distance. My nephew who too was attracted, started shouting ship, ship. I protested, no It can’t be a ship, you don’t have a Sea here. He was not to be subdued. He promptly said, the Tsunami might have brought it here. Again I asked, then where is the Sea. He readily answered,  it was taken away by the Tsunami.

I took a photograph from that distance and when we were closing in, I got the vehicle stopped for further exploration. The structure turned out to be a College of Marine Engineering of Coimbatore. The photographs are appended.

  3. Yes interesting. I have been seeing this building for the last one year. You have captured it beautifully in the camera. Some day I will show it to the director of the college.

  4. Hello , I saw your comment on Balachandran's post about friends. And I'm here now. The place you mentioned , Tiruppur was a sort of second home for me for twenty years till last December 31 st. Have bitter and good memories of the town.

    Your little statement about having lost your best friend is solemn.

  18. Hello PNS,

    Surprising, the college almost looks like a ship and very apt for its name. I wonder who conceived and designed it. Lovely.

    Best wishes,

  23. very interesting looking building..
    the architect must have found it difficult getting the local workers to do the work in this non traditional way!!
