A handy guide for tourists from Travel Club Madurai
By coming up with a comprehensive city map, Travel Club Madurai has made it easier for travellers to navigate the temple town. The handy fan-fold map offers crisp information on various aspects of the city from the popular tourist attractions to lesser known pockets, places to eat and things to buy and contacts of hotels and destinations. How good is the idea of a hand map in the digital era? “Though the internet offers information at the click of a button, it's too much of a pile for any discerning traveller. There's need for selected and relevant information and we have tried to accommodate the best of research in the guide,” says Rishwanth

Jayaraj, the club treasurer. “I travelled to Germany last year and was surprised to see maps for all kinds of activities, from something as simple as taking a train to going for a walk.”
The Travel Club members took inspiration from a map designed for a Calcutta Walk, an activity for tourists. “Madurai’s need for such map was overdue given the number of tourists who visit the city daily,” says Jayaraj. Cartographer Samit Roychoudhury who has the distinction of designing map for the Indian Railways, called as The Great Indian Railway Atlas, was invited to draw the Madurai map. “He stayed in the city for a couple of days to understand the topography, culture and the essence of the place.”
“The existing maps for Madurai are just road maps that give directions. Useful information for the tourists is missing,” says Dr. G Vasudevan, a founding member of Travel Club. “This is a maiden attempt, which has to be refined subsequently.” He adds, “When people think of Madurai, they only think of temples whereas there's much more to the region. For instance, in Thoothukudi and Rameswaram, a pilgrim town, water sports are coming up along the coast. We want to popularise attraction across southern Tamil Nadu, like what can be done in Dindigul or Karaikudi.” In a bid to promote the entire Madurai region, Travel Club has also launched a website www.travelclubmadurai.com that offers all kinds of details on nearby places of interest like Chettinad, Munnar and Palani.
“In future, we also plan to design a calender of festivals, on the lines of Kerala. If we are able to chalk out the dates and venues of various festivals in the region for the next couple of years and provide it in the form of a calender for tourists, it will be easier for people to plan,” says Vasudevan. “Festivals like the Chithirai tiruvizha, Jallikattu and Pongal need to be popularised, as travellers don't want to see just monuments these days, but experience the life and culture of a place.”
The Madurai city map will be placed at the airport, railway station and hotels for tourists free of cost.

மதுரை: மதுரயைில் இன்று (ஏப்23) மாலையில் பலத்த காற்றுடன் கூடிய மழை பெய்தது. திருப்பரங்குன்றம் ரயில் நிலையப் பகுதியில் மரங்கள் முறிந்து தண்டவாளத்தில் விழுந்தன. இதனால் திருச்செந்தூரில் இருந்து பொள்ளாச்சிக்கு செல்லும் பயணிகள் ரயில் திருப்பரங்குன்றத்தில் நிறுத்தி வைக்கப்பட்டன. தண்டவாளத்தில் விழுந்த மரங்கள் அகற்றப்பட்ட பின்னர் ஒரு மணி நேர தாமதமாக ரயில் புறப்பட்டு சென்றது.
மதுரை : சீமைக் கருவேல மரங்களை அகற்றும் பணியில் மெத்தனமாக இருப்பதால் தெற்கு ரயில்வே பொதுமேலாளர் ஆஜராகி விளக்கமளிக்க வேண்டுமென ஐகோர்ட் கிளை உத்தரவிட்டுள்ளது. சீமைக் கருவேல மரங்களை அகற்றுவது தொடர்பாக மதிமுக பொதுச்செயலாளர் வைகோ, மதுரை முன்னாள் மேயர் பட்டுராஜன் உள்ளிட்ட சிலர் ஐகோர்ட் மதுரை கிளையில் வழக்கு தொடர்ந்தனர். இந்த மனுக்களை ஏற்கனவே விசாரித்த நீதிமன்றம் தமிழகம் முழுவதுமுள்ள சீமைக் கருவேல மரங்களை அகற்றவும், தமிழக அரசு இதற்கென சட்டம் இயற்றவும் உத்தரவிட்டிருந்தது. இந்த மனுக்கள் நீதிபதிகள் ஏ.செல்வம், பி.கலையசரன் ஆகியோர் முன் நேற்று மீண்டும் விசாரணைக்கு வந்தன. அப்போது அரசுத் தரப்பு மற்றும் வக்கீல் கமிஷனர்கள் தரப்பில் அறிக்கைகள் தாக்கல் செய்யப்பட்டது. இதையடுத்து நீதிபதிகள் பிறப்பித்த உத்தரவு:
இதுவரையில் 40% சீமைக் கருவேல மரங்கள் அகற்றப்பட்டுள்ளது. விருதுநகர், புதுக்கோட்டை, திருவள்ளூர், சென்னை மற்றும் செங்கல்பட்டு உள்ளிட்ட மாவட்டங்களில் பணிகள் சரியாக நடைபெறவில்லை. இங்கு நீதிமன்ற உத்தரவை முழுமையாக நிறைவேற்ற கலெக்டர்கள் தகுந்த நடவடிக்கை எடுக்க வேண்டும். நீதிமன்ற உத்தரவை நிறைவேற்ற தெற்கு ரயில்வே எந்த அக்கறையும் காட்டவில்லை. எனவே, தெற்கு ரயில்வே பொதுமேலாளர், ஆஜராகி விளக்கம் அளிக்க

வேண்டும். திருமயம், விராலிமலை, கறம்பக்குடி, குளத்தூர், பொன்னமராவதி பகுதிகளில் பணிகள் முறையாக நடக்கவில்லை. எனவே, அந்த பகுதி தாசில்தார்களுக்கு தாமாக முன்வந்து நீதிமன்ற அவமதிப்பு நோட்டீஸ் அனுப்ப பதிவுத்துறைக்கு உத்தரவிடப்படுகிறது. சீமைக்கருவேலம் அகற்றுவதற்கான சிறப்பு சட்டத்தை பொதுமக்கள் நலன் கருதி தமிழக அரசு கொண்டுவர வேண்டும். இவ்வாறு உத்தரவிட்ட நீதிபதிகள் விசாரணையை ஜூன் 9க்கு தள்ளிவைத்தனர்.
