I had been to Tirupati yesterday. On the way, I saw this railway station Venkatanarasimharajuvaripeta ๐Ÿ™‚ Somewhere in the Tamilnadu-Andhra border!

According to Limca book of records, this is the longest station name in India ๐Ÿ™‚

And while googling for that station, I got this interesting link

  1. Ferrari,
    I came across that site 2 months back. I always wonder who they are to have 20000 posts each. Cant be reservation counter clerks for sure.
    But govt employees with internet connection seems too good to hear ๐Ÿ™‚

    i know them thru the southern railway discussion forum as much as i know about you guys :). those people are railways enthusiasts. they are from different backgrounds (i guess a few of them seem to be retired personnel).

    yeah, i too have posted in a few threads of that forum, i am one of those railways enthusiasts (i like trains better than any other mode of transportation excluding foot and bicycle travel) but not as proficient as most of those people, they are “Saravanans” of railways.

    infact many suggestions of that forum were brought to the notice of Southern railway GM and some times the GM himself visits some threads and have posted there.

    you will get hell a lot of information about railways, meaning full points raised by those people in the forum.

    here is the link to the forum:

  5. my guess this venkatanarasimharajuvaaripeta would have given a tough fight to some of the german railway stations name for world record ๐Ÿ™‚

    Once it so happened in a flight that, James bond was sitting besides a Telugu guy..
    Both were traveling to US.
    Telugu Guy : “Hello, May I know ur name please?”
    James Bond : “I am Bond.. James Bond.”
    James Bond: “and you?”
    Telugu Guy : “I am Sai… Venkata Sai… Siva Venkata Sai…Laxminarayana Siva Venkata Sai…. Srinivasula Laxminarayana
    Siva Venkata Sai…Rajasekhara Srinivasula Laxminarayana Siva Venkata Sai…Sitaramanjaneyula Rajasekhara Srinivasula Laxminarayana Siva Venkata Sai …Bommiraju Sitaramanjaneyula Rajasekhara Srinivasula Laxminarayana Siva Venkata Sai..”

  12. Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I
    guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any points for newbie blog writers?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.
