In Yercaud, there's always TTDC
In the midst of all the catching up, several of us found time to visit the boat house in the morning and engage pedal boats. I took time off to meet S. Venkatesan, chief manager at the Tamil Nadu Tourism Development Corporation resort.
During my previous visit, we were guests at the TTDC facility and he had taken good care of us. Venkatesan is also in charge of the boat house and accompanied me as I took a stroll around the place. It was nice catching up with him, and he, too, was happy to be there.
In the first picture, MV and Thomas are all ears as Venkatesan launches into a spiel in the boat house office room. Look at the ‘important’ notice boards placed strategically at the entrance to the boat house in the second; and do you notice the salamander in the third? Earlier, I had been to the TTDC resort and standing, covered in polythene, but ready to be used was a battery-operated van to ferry tourists around the boat house. If successful; more such vehicles will be introduced in the hill resort, says Venkatesan.
