Galloped at Gabba - 2021

  Oh what an exhibition of test cricket this Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2021 has been, India for sure were not tagged as favorites when they landed on Aussie soil, the One-Day games went in our favor with a 2-1 victory, but we gifted the T20's to the Aussies and then started the real test of the game, the TESTS. India were bundled for 36 (all out) in their second innings at Adelaide and with Virat Kholi departing the squad to be with his wife on the occasion of their first baby, India certainly looked depleted both technically and emotionally, to add to the misery there were some key players who were getting out to injuries, Bumrah, Jaddu, R Ashwin, Shammi all gone, India were even worried if they could pick a playing 11. Then came these youngsters Washington Sundar, T Natarajan, Shardul Thalur, Navdeep Saini, they literally filled the shoes of those experienced players and gave Aussies a tough fight. With the concluded 3 test, the scoreline read 1-1 win for both the sides and a draw a

Get Lost 2020

What a nasty year this has been, a year to forget, a year we all hope that never repeats again. I am still searching those fucking astrologers who all came in those popular TV channels and chest-thumped that 2020 would be a year of prosperity, a year of utmost happiness and joy, they all proved that astrologers are useless assholes when they don't practice the art of astrology that well, now the whole world is laughing at them, as their predictions were just upside-down. It all started ok in 2020 and then before we all could realize what had hit us, Covid happened, it took the world by storm, threw all our lives out of gear, swallowed so many innocent lives, put millions of families in a path of no return, how many people have lost their jobs, their livelihood, loved ones, even in the month of December 2020, that shit has not settled, it has only peaked, still many countries are in lockdown, economy's are dwindling down, and there is just absolutely no escape to this wrath. I a

SPB - Legend with a Golden Voice Rest's in Peace

  This year 2020 is continuing to be the most depressing year in my life, how many lives we have lost across the globe due to this pandemic COVID-19 (Corona Virus) and the latest victim to that nasty disease is our one and only "Paadum Nilaa Balu" a.k.a SPB a.k.a S.P Balasubramaniyam. When he released a video from the hospital saying that he is getting admitted due to "mild" Covid symptom, I was confident that he will pull through this and will be back on track to enthrall millions of his fans with his golden voice and even till last 2 days, his son SPB Charan posted a video that his dad was doing fine and he has started to take fluid diet, and all of a sudden yesterday we got a news that his situation deteriorated and he is now in a very critical stage, even though I was optimistic that he will pull through, and he does not even have to sing for us, all I wanted him to come out alive and lead a normal life, but unfortunately GOD decided to keep him next to him or p

Covid 19

Ah once again ....!!! Just like how we have never heard about the term Tsunami till the time we were all impacted by that, this Covid 19 caught us by surprise likewise. From where the hell this came and hit us all? Was this a bio-weapon like many countries speculate? I don't buy the statement of this virus has came from the BATS, damn, BATS were around for millions of years, and this virus could have been emitted well before and it's strain could have been well known and we would have had a medicine for that by now. This pandemic really caught us all off guard and literally changed the world we are living in, social-distancing has been the norm these days and lock down of borders is the new geography. It is definitely a life changer. The number of people who have died because of this is alarming and our heart goes for the deceased and their families. A special mention has to be made for doctors, nurses, public health workers and researchers who are risking their own life

2019 A Recap

I am not going to start this post with any excuses, by this time, all my readers would have been diminished as well, I am just maintaining this blog just to put a recap of the year, hahahaha. Ok,  by the grace of GOD, 2019 has behaved well and it was a quite and peaceful year. Pranav turned 3 years and has started to speak, true to this saying "குழலினிது யாழ்யினிது என்பர், மழலை சொல் கேளாதோர்", I am enjoying every bit of his talks, it is just a bliss. I cannot thank god enough for giving me Pranav in my life. Professionally 2019 has been a terrific year with zillion things of learning, I am so glad that my technical expertise is getting diversified as I grow in my career, starting from Development for 11 years, Performance Engineering for 6 years, Infrastructure/Cloud Architecting for 6 years, it has been a very good technical journey, God willing, I would continue to stay on the technical side as long as I can. Personally, life in Denmark has been relatively cool and c

God's must be CRAZY

Crazy-Easy Mohan I have penned this on the day he passed away and did not want to post it that day itself as I cannot digest the fact that a genius like him his no more. I don’t think anything would be enough to talk about some of my mentors and for sure Crazy Mohan sir is one of them. OK before we dive deeper, I am not a cine personality, I am not a stand-up-comedian, but I have earned the name of a humorist by doing many off the silver screen performances. I was with Humor Club and has done many shows with them, I am always someone who does not come to be in the limelight, for variety of reasons, but I have worked with some of the greats like Crazy Mohan, Sve. Sheker, Mouli etc. Now on to the main topic – I was shell shocked when I learnt that Mohan sir is dead, it took a very long time for me to even digest that news, during my Humor Club days he has presided many many functions for us and I have got many awards from him, after seeing me perform and my witty on-lin

Recap of 2018 ...

One more year comes to an end and once again I did not keep up the promise of blogging frequently, but I am sure my readers are used to that now. Ok, 2018 was honestly a great year professionally, probably the best year where the learnings I had was more compared to the last 10 years. I had to move out of India this year to improve my technical skills and aslo get some good exposure, and my move to Denmark did not disspoint me a bit, I would continue to be in Denmark for another year or two before I head back to my base Chennai. Personally also this has been a great year where I had the opportunity show my 2 year old son some parts of Europe and also this was my wife's long stint abroad. Settling in Denmark was a bit tensed but it was still ok. Got a bicycle for my own, which was my childhood dream, whenever I asked for cycle to my dad he use to ask me to get 1st rank in school, but those days I thought that was too much of an ask for a bicycle and hence he never got me a cycle an
