Recording the history of Nellore


Tirupati to Nellore in auto for Rottela Panduga

I spotted this Chittoor auto rickshaw AP03-2838 at Tirumala Dairy near Gudur. I got curious, and had a chat with the driver. Here are some interesting facts. His name is Sulaiman. He is a tailor at Aashika Tailors, Tirupati.

Three days back 5 adults and 3 kids came to Nellore by this auto. They visited Mypadu, AS Peta, Kasumur, attended the Gandham ceremony at Baarashahid Darga in Nellore, attended the Rottela Panduga (bread festival) this morning and were on their way back. Their total trip was around 600 KMs.

I was zapped, and after he left, it occured to me that I should have asked him ‘what rotte (bread) did he take or leave’; may be it is travel rotte!
