1. இந்த ஊரில் மட்டும் இயற்கையின் சீற்றம் அதிகமாகிக்கொண்டே போகிறதே
ஹும், ஏன் சீறாது ? தன்னை விட என்னவள் அழகாகிக்கொண்டே போகிறாளே என்கிற கோபமோ என்னவோ ...
2. நல்ல வேளை நாம் மிக உயரத்தில் இருக்கிறோம்,
அவள் கண்களை விட அழகாக இருந்திருக்க மாடோம்,
கிசுகிசுத்து கொண்டன விண் மீன்கள்,
என்னவளின் கண்களை பார்த்து.
3. அம்மாவின் வீட்டில் குழந்தையை விட்டுவிட்டு
வேலை நிமித்தமாக ஊருக்கு வருகையில்,
முட்டி கொண்டு வந்தது கண்ணீர்,
அப்போது நினைவில் வந்தது,
சீதனமாய் கொடுத்தனுப்பிய கன்றுக்குட்டியின் தாய் பசு முகம்.
4. என்ன உணவு இது ? மனிதன் உண்பானா இதை ?
போய் ஏதேனும் நாய்க்கு கொட்டு,
என்று சீருகையில் கேட்டது,
உணவிலாமல் அழும் வேலைக்காரி குழந்தையின் பசி அழுகை.
5. வெகு நேரம் வராத காதலிக்காக
கால் கடுக்க பூங்காவில் காத்திருக்கும் போது வராத கோபம்,
அம்மா உடல் நலம் இல்லாததால்,
மண்ணெண்னைக்காக ரேஷன் கியூவில் காத்திருக்கும் போது வந்தது, அம்மாவின் மீது ...
6. மடை திறந்து தண்ணீர் கரைபுரண்டு ஓடுகிறது,
நாம் அனைவரும் உள்ளே சென்று தாழிட்டு கொள்வோம்
என்னவளின் கண்ணீரை பார்த்து கூறிக்கொண்டன பற்கள்
7. கண்டவுடன் சுட உத்தரவு
8. மெழுகுவதிக்கும் என்னவளுக்கும் ஒரே வித்யாசம் தான்
மெழுகுவத்தி, நுனியில் தீ பிடித்து அழிந்தது
என்னவள் துணியில் தீ பிடித்து அழிந்தாள்
தங்களுடைய உண்மையான கருத்துக்களை எதிர் பார்கிறேன்
I dont know how many of you know about this poetic genius, i dont know his real name, but his screen name is "Nilaa Raseegan". I dont dare to say that he is a living "Kannadasan", i was literally pulled into his poems and if i want to rate them all, i would rather say i dont have words in ENGLISH to explain his creativity. I am following all his poems right from 1998 and he has this variety in all his poems and hence making readers like us say "Hip Hip Hurrayyyy". He writes about love, baby, mother, father, child, wide, lover, nature, oh man ... that list is soooo big. I am so fortunate to catch his personal blog today and hence thought of sharing that with you all.
Please visit Nila Raseegan to taste all the honey drops he has stored for us and to taste a drop of honey from his ocean of poems, have a look at this "அம்மாவுக்கும்,அப்பாவுக்கும்...." this one, not only touched my heart, but also taught me a BIG lesson of how to be a good parent once i get married.

Varun was not feeling ok right from the morning, he felt as if he swallowed a golf ball and that got stuck inside his throat, he picked up a very ordinary dressing and stuck a somber mask to his face and left for the college. Kavya on the other hand was equaly misserable and was keeping quite right from the morning and the usual hug to her mom daily in the morning was missing that day which was obviously notice by her mom. She too dressed in her not so best costume left to college. There was a very big crowd all around the campus, all the final year sutdents of all groups were busy chatting with their friends, some were puling the legs of a physics department guy with a maths department girl.
He was not sure of whether to disclose his love to her or not, he had his own fears of she dis-owning him, he thought that this confession might break their friendship. She on the other hand was in a similar mind set and was pretty convinced in not to disclose her feelings. They were all assembled at the auditorium where the prinicpal will be addressing them in any moment. He sat next to She and was happy to enjoy that brief moment of togetherness. Both of them were waiting for one of them to start the conversation but none volunteered till the end of the function.
He has had enough of that silence and hence decided to break that, so he called her to their usual meeting place, which is just under a baniyan tree which was standing still for many many years and which has wittnessed many many couples like them, it has seen their joy, romance, silence, agony, hatred, tears, seperation etc. He was about to confess the stuff he had in his mind for the past 3 years and as a coincidence, both started to talk at the same time, "Hey I wanted to tell you …." This brought a smile on their faces and he said, "Ladies first", she said, "No, you first", he not too interested in this game of "who to start first" said, lets both say it at the same time, so they agreed upon that and at the count of 3 they both confessed to each other.
Varun said - "I am in love with 3rd year B.Sc student Shanthi" and
Kavya said - "I am in love with 3rd year B.Com student Mahesh"
I saw this guy for the first time in a TV serial at doordarshan, its called "Oru Manidhanin Kadhai" where he would have acted as a drunkard, my god, what an unbelievable acting, really he made lot of people to avoid drinking after seeing that serial, thats the impact of his acting. As everyone knows his famous dialogue being "I know, I know, I know" from the movie "Puriyaadha Pudhir", he would have portraited the role of an obnoxious husband, i would rather say that he lived that role.
There was a time where all leading heros refused to act with Raghuvaran (if he is the villan) just for the fact that he steals the show from the rest of the crew and he get laurels for his acting skills, the public conveniently forgets the acting of the hero and praises Raghuvaran, and infact thats one reason for he not acting in many films, when such crooked people are reigning this tamil film industry, we can never discover such great talent.
I recently saw him at the chennai airport, and had a chance to talk to him, i just wished him a "Hi" and told him that he has done exceptionally well in the movie "Shivaji" though it was just a short stint. Its a great shock to me to see that he is no more with us. I sincerely pray to GOD for his soul to rest in peace. I am sure this his absence has certainly created a void in the film fraternity and its not that easy to fill that.
After 3 years, he felt that just "I Love You" will not help, as that does not mean anything romantic, he wanted to add some romantic words before that, so he decided to say "My Dear SweetHeart, I love you", so he knows that he still needs to wait 3 more years to say "My Dear Sweetheart", so he was prepared to be quite for another 3 more years without saying even one single word. Years rolled on and he was on the verge of completing 6 years and he has collected 6 words to tell his sweetheart. At this time his minister came to him and told him that, just saying "I Love you" does not mean that she will marry you, so you have to ask her whether she is interested to marry you, that sounded like a perfect plan for the prince and he decided to add few more words "My Dear SweetHeart, I love you, Will you marry me ?" so he now has to extend his silence for another 4 more years to say the next 4 words.
Years rolled on and the prince was patient enough to keep mum and he was eagerly waiting for the 10th year to complete, so that he can break his silence and disclose his love to his sweetheart and as expected that great day came, the prince has completed 10 long years on silence and he came out of his room for the first time in 10 years, the entire city was flushing in joy and the king dressed himself up in his best attire and then with a beautiful red rose in his hand, he went directly to his garden where his sweeheart was waiting for him, he knelt on his knees before her, and with his arm stretched towards her with a red rose he whispered "My Dear SweetHeart, I love you, Will you marry me ?" after adjusting a strand of hair behind her ears and with a light on her eyes, she asked ....
"Pardon me .... "
The entire book was narrated as like a screen-play and hence it makes the readers literally sink into it, you just can't read half a chapter and then close it, you will be compelled to complete the entire chapter, that's the power of her writing. The book has variety of highlights including the "Unseen" photographs of our superstar which you would'nt have seen anywhere, those are exclusive stills used just for this book. It also has snippets like various co-stars talking about out superstar and expressing their views on this simple man, the snippet by Radhika Saratkumar was the best amongst the snippets i have gone thru, i still have'nt completed this book.
I got this book amidst some hotttt scoldings by my dad, as he was dead against in me getting this book for Rs 460/-, he asked me why am i wasting my hard earned money on such a book, even though he is also a die-hardfan of Rajinikanth, he just cannot digest my decision of procuring this book, but as usually youth prevails over experience and i finally convinced my dad and got this book. Its not that i got this book as i am a die-hard AC (fan is not the term to be used) of my thalaivar, more than that, i admire his personality as a human being, than as an actor.
I would strongly recommened all the educated fans of Rajinikanth to buy this book and feel the pleasure of reading a wonderfully penned novel about this demi-god. A big big big, HATS-OFF to this opthalmologist (Gayathri Shreekanth), who has made a very good start as an author, lets wish her a great success in all her future endeavours. She will surely have a great fan-following after this book as she has penned one of INDIA's, sorry sorry, WORLD's greatest ICON of cinema's. Good work Gayathri madam !!!
Ohhhhh my GODD, she is choooooo chweeeetttttttttttt. I am planning to pull out that Ad from youtube and then put it here.
How many of you folks belive the tag "FREE" that we normally see when we buy some products ? "Buy 1, Get 2 Free" and its a typical human mentality that if we see the word "FREE" we tend to bounce on it, and the funny thing is, we will not be happy with the main product we have purchased, but will be happy to have the FREE stuff attached with that. Some FREE attachments are really funny ...
1. Toung Cleaner for a Tooth Brush - Then why the hell i need that brush ?
2. Matchbox with that X Soap" (Naa enna THEE kulika poraenaa ? Soap vaangarachae edhuku daa match box ???)
3. Agarbathi's with every Vermi"Silly" Semiya - Since semiya and Agarbathi are thin, they should have got this idea.
4. Batteries with every "Washing Powder" - I think they would have thought that my washing machine runs with 2 AA batteries.
5. Ever silver bowl for anything and everything, probably thats one thing in this country which is by default given for FREE, if you dont find anything else.
Actually whatever that has been tagged FREE is not exactly FREE, take it from me, nothing in this world comes for FREE. I actually did a detailed research on this concept and when i happen to meet one of the senior person from a marketing agency, he happened to break this JINX and explained me in detail of what exactly is happening at the background when they attach the tag FREE on to it.
Let's say a product is priced at a minimum rate of Rs 5/- and for that they may give you any damn thing as FREE, in such a case you can be rest assured that the production cost of that FREE product will not be more than 0.35 paise (yeah, its true), if i say production cost, its inclusive of everything, manufacturing, packing, sealing, distributing etc etc. The next knot is, the parent company which offer this FREE stuff will be having a tie-up with the company which is actually manufacturing that "FREE" product, both ofg them sit together and then work out a business mathematics and you know what is the business deal they have ?. The FREE product manufacturer will be paying a royalty to the the parent product manufacturer which inturn is being adjusted in the overall profit of his product, that's it, and this is the bottomline. This situation is a WIN-WIN situation for both the companies.
Ok you can now ask what i am losing in that ? good question, so let me explain you that we are the ultimate losers. Ok you buy a X product for Rs 5/- and you are getting a FREE (so called) product along with that say Y, lets not get into the technical detalis like what could be the production cost for that FREE product. You have been purchasing this product of years which is priced at Rs 5/- and now even after giving some Y as FREE, then also you are paying Rs 5/- so we as consumers will look only from that angle, but actually the X product company is already making profit with this Rs 5/- and adding on to that he is getting royalty from the Y product company and adding on to that he gets a TAX rebate for the royalty he gets from the Y product company. Finally you will be the one who has to pay the TAXES for that product, but most marketing ppl include those taxes within the price and show it as "Inclusive of all Taxes", but eventually we are paying their taxes.
Ultimately you and I are the only people who meticulously pay TAXEs to our govenrment for every Re 1/- we earn, so its nothing other than our hard earned money which is being spent just by blinding our eyes with the keyword FREE.
Last week i happened to go to a departmental store where there was a big chaos near the billing counter where a customer was screaming on top of his throat arguing that the shop has not given the FREE product which was printed on top of the package, but the shop owner was trying to convince him that there is no such FREE product attached to that, and later i went and checked in to see that he has purchased a "Sundrop Sunflower Oil" and it has printed "Cholestrol FREE" on its top, and he wants that FREE Cholestrol ;-)
Well, dont wonder if your kid asks such questions to you, they are talking about our national animal TIGER, with the current rate of killings that are happening on that poor mammal, its almost on the verge of extinsion, it will be a shame to our country if we let out national animal to dissapear from this country, so lets join hands in the drive of saving that wild cat, when there is a place for lots and lots of two-legged tigers to live in this country, why can't this BIG CAT get a place ? Tigers are not encroaching our living area unless or otherwise we enter their area and harm them, so lets sto poaching TIGER's and make the government to take stringent action against the people who act cruel on those BIG CAT's
There is "Save Tiger" drive that is being organized by NDTV and they are keeping registers in almost all the manjor cities of our country, so just spend few seconds and please do sign that register, i am hearing what you are asking, how will our signatures save the TIGER family, yes, it surely will, that signature drive is just to uphold a very stringent law for poachers and the punishment for them is a DEATH PENALTY, so for the government to raise that law, we have to join hands. Please do this to save an animal family which may no longer be with us.
Life is so busy nowadays ah ? But if we think deeper, all are running behind some hidden goals of life and some finds what it is and some are still running (like me). Being all alone in life is attimes a gift, that is what i would say, i get lots of time to do what i want, i could make my environment tailor made for me and make sure that everything pleases me, but there is a dream life i wanted to live, and this is how it should be ...
I a remote village (down south tamilnadu) in a small house, with just two rooms, it should definitely have a green lawn in front of it (dont dare to step on that, grass are not meant for walking) and couple of flower plants, a small waterfall kinda setup (i shd hear the sound of water), a small "oonjal" hanging above the celing (which can accomodate two ppl at a time) and 1 or 2 cute little labradors. Rest of the basic amienities goes without saying, food, water, clothes etc etc. I should get up by 5 and go for a small walk, take some deep breadth, have a cup of coffe in a road side shop, then leisurely read that day's news paper, then have a plate of hot fluffy Idli's with "Molagapodi" and one more cup of coffee. Then by 10 take a hot shower and take a walk in your garden, water the plants, pluck flowers and of course train those two little labrador's, spend lots of time with them, feed them, bring them on to a hot shower, and make them sleep. Have my lunch by 12:30 and then sit (yes, just sit) for 1 hour and allow the food to digest, take a book of my choice, and i am sure my eyes will automatically close, just sleep in an Easy-Chair which will be setup at the enterance of my house and by listening to the music of wind hitting the neem leaves up above my head , i will be going into heaven.
Get up by 4:00 PM and have a cup of Coffee (I luv it) and continue reading the magazine for a while, by now the sun would have started to bid adieu to your part of the world and I need to get out for an evening walk. There should be a big baniyan tree near my locality where lots of people will gather in the eveing for a round of gossip, join with them and debate anything from Indian Politics to Village panchayat, there should be a vendor who should be frying hot BAJJI's, grab a couple of that and munch it while you are debating on something, by now it should have started to dim and hence get back home, refresh myself by washing my face and legs, switch on my music system and start listening to some of my favourite songs (obviously Ilayaraja) and before you sink into that mesmerizing music, take a light dinner, probably 2 chapathi's or 2 dosa's, after dinner, take your cute little pups for a walk, allow them to finish their nature calls, come back home, feed the pups, put them in their hut and at the strike of 10:00 get into my temporary death.
Isn't it nice ? I will be glad if this narration would have helped you in vizualizng the exact scene while you are reading this.
Hip Hip Hurrayyyyy!!! that's how i wanted to scream, but i was at office and hence could not do that. Its a sin that i could not watch the match LIVE, but anyways the utlimate thing is i wanted INDIA to win and leave the Aussie's nose bleeding and that is what exactly happened. It was a very tensed match even to watch it on the Internet and you know what ? I later heard from my friends that the complete match was shown in my office GYM and there was a big crowd to watch that, pitty me, i missed that too. I do want to miss the highlights so i rushed back home by 7 and then finished cooking my dinner by 8 and then sat in front my plasma till it got over...
Its a nice lesson that we have taught the Aussies and we brought them down to earth as they were flying with the World Champ status, but Dhoni and his boys proved them wrong and at last clinched a convincing victory. I would'nt have been pleased if INDIA would have took it to the decider and then won, winning by 2-0 means a lot than a 2-1. During the slog overs you should have seen the Aussie faces, all dull and grim and i think ponting would have sensed a defeat moment Mic Hussy got out. The last over was a real thriller and i went into spritual mode and statred to murmer prayers, then i realized that i am not watching it live, i am watching the highlights ;-)
Kudos to Dhoni and his boys and they really made all of us proud. After this defeat i would expect Symonds not to open his mouth against any Indian player, Ponting should start looking at this game beyond australia and Haydon should never walk down the crease and play ;-))). We are have beat the World Champs at their soil and what else you need to cheer about. Another great thing about this series is our GOD Sachin is back to form, whether he plays to silence his critics or he plays for himself, the bottom line is he is playing for his NATION. Its all ended well for the INDIANs and i am soooo happy about it.
Welll, we need to mention about the great Mr. Dave Whatmore who was our U-19 team's coach, that guy has a magic wand in his hand and we failed to grab it when he came forward to be the coach for our seniors. Just look back at that guy's coaching career, He was the coach for KENYA in WC 2003 and the team which we all thot as a mere rat, turn out to be lions and were playing the great Australia in the semi-finals, taking such a poor team into WC semi's is not an easy joke. He was the coach for Bangladesh in the recently ended WC where he took Bangladesh till the Quater finals, infact they beat INDIA convincingly and as a result INDIA were knocked out of the tournament very early. Adding more to his success story, he has been the U-19 WC winning coach for Pakistan twice and now INDIA, man man man ... he is a magician to me ...
Good day in the sport of CRICKET for INDIA where the seniors beat the asussies by 6 wickets in the 1st Final of the CB tri-series. Our master blaster Sachin carried the bat with an unbeaten 117, which apparently was his first one day ton in Australian soil.
