ICE HOUSE ,CHENNAI VS ICE HOUSE , CHINA
AISWARYAM OF CHINESE ARCHTECTS

 

 

In Chennai there is a famous place called ICE HOUSE .When I was a child my neighbour was telling mymother  " EnOda Ponnu Ice Housela katti kuduthirukkirEn ! icehousela sondha veedu irukku mappillaikku " [ My daughter is wedded to a man who is living in ice house and has got a own house  in ice house]

 

At that time may be I was a five ir six year old boy.I was envying that man "How lucky you are! Whenever you go to see your daughter how much cool you will be and how much of ice creams you would be taking!


Hey kudumi uncle.How lucky you are to say that." like that my lips were whispering

 

When I grew and got a job in chennai for the first time I was going for food to Triplicane where you have lot of mess.At that time the bus was passing through the so called ice house. I remembered my child hood days and I wanted to see the ice house. So for my lunch of Sunday I got into a bus two hours ahead of my schedule.Got down at 11 am in the morning at the ice house stop and the weather was very sticky and i was sweating and sweating with no breeze, My throat was dry and I was searching for a cool drink shop. Nearby no cool drink, no ice, .I was grudging myself what a pity my life is and at last one shop i got hold of who was selling fanta, panneer soda etc.I ordered for fanta and the bottle was only warm in summer.No ice was there.  Today”s stocks have not come grudged the shop owner They get ice blocks put in a rubber sheet and hammer it with a wooden log and fill it in a thermocol container. Again I was fed up. What is this ice house ? Scolding and cursing myself after a grilling humid climate sweating and wiping the forehead on and off , I was returning to the mess to have my lunch of the Iyer made stuff and came out at mmm12 o clock

 

This  is my icehouse experience at the age of twenty. in Chennai

 

Today I came across a cascaded spree of ice houses---sorry ice Bungalows in China .Totally built in ice  .See the heaven of icy buildings in China.  Are you not feeling cool to see those great buildings. How glittering the ice houses are. Can you ever dream of an ice house. In day time they keep the ice structure cool by providing freezing temperature all over te building and make sure the glassy effects of ice still remain tenacious. It is  crazy idea of the chinese architects and no doubt is one of the greatest marvels in the world.
