LIVE Cricketing Experience ...

Image
What an excitement, what a drama. I would re-live these moments in my life forever. I am talking about my first LIVE watching of a cricket match which was held between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings at Bangalore. I would rather say that this is also a kind of addiction, if you taste the thrill of watching the match LIVE, I dont think you will be willing to watch it the next time on your TV sets. Let me go through the entire 5 hours spectacle which I witnessed yesterday in this article ...
Myself and other colleagues of mine started from office by 4:00 and reached the stadium by 5:50, we were actually about to wait for one of our friend who came late and hence we missed the opportunity of ocupying the front seats of our gallery. We were sure that the match is gonna be an electrifying one just for the reason that there is already a friction that exists between these two states, and there is a huge presence of tamil speaking people in this place which would obviously …

Investigation ...

It was a cold-blodded murder, where the owner of that house has been mercilessly killed by smashing his head with a hard rock, and no valubles or money have been stolen from the house, so the motive of this murder cannot be theft, also the suspect has gained free entry into the house as there were no breakages or damages to the main gate or the windows, hence the murderer should be a known person to the family, describes the DIG of police Mr. Ramanathan to all his colleagues, and he was assigning this investigation to the inspector whom he trusts the most, Mr. Varadarajan...
Mr. Varadarajan is one of the most senior police officer who has handled umpty number of cases like this, he is very very successfull in his career and has won many accolades for his abilities in solving some of the complex cases, but as you all know, GOD does not give everything to everyone, he too has his own personal problems in life which he hardly discuss or disclose to his friends. He is very sincere and hone…

Silence ...

Vineeth was shivering badly when the doctor asked him to have a look at his mother who is at the ICU, he refused to see his mom with all those tubes running all around her, he was taught by his mom to be bold in any situation of life, but that does not seem to work here as the teacher who taught that is in her dying bed. Vineeth somehow managed to peep into the ICU, that dim lighting, frequent beeps of those life saving machines and all the more the silence in that room, gave him the feel of his spine getting chill ...He slowly went to the last bed in that room, just to see his loving mom lying unconcious in a bed, though he is not an expert in analyzing the ECG monitor, but he dared to have a look at it, it was fluctuating in all possible manners which really made him worried, thanks to some good old movies where they have shown that if the ECG monitor draws a straight line, then that's the end, so to that extent, he is aware that his mom is alive. He slowly inched towards her be…

Resemblence ...

I saw that guy in a party hall. He looked exaclty like me and too his mannerisms. I am a personality who likes to be the center of attraction always, but this time he has stolen the show and all my friends sorrounded him, though I felt so bad, I just could not say anything....I asked myself why I am like this ? Why cant I accept these little changes of life ? But I could not get an answer. That guy was at his best attire that day just to impress his sweetheart, and he was making the environment lively, people around him started to enjoy his chat and were laughing non-stop, It was me who was doing that all the time now, but today this guy has taken up my position. This is what is all about human heart and mind, its pretty difficult to accept changes in life and especially if that change is not favouring our desire.I just could not resist moving away from that place, but I thought I should not do that, because that guy has all my striking resmblence of mine and I was watching him consta…

Register Office ...

Kavya was waiting for Varun at the park for almost 2 hours now, more than the pain of waiting all alone, she just could not stand those on-looker's stare at her, it some what made her uncomfortable. She called him up many times on his cell phone, but it was never picked up, she thought that he might be driving. She was about to send a SMS to him saying that she has waited enough and hence she is planning to go, the message was composed fully and was about to send, just then ....
Varun came rushing towards her with his mouth full of apologies, as she just could not get upset on Varun she posed a fake anger and pretended as if she is upset on him, Varun very well knew that its just a prank and hence he did not take it seriously. Varun just switched to the serious tone and asked Kavya whether she is all set for the marriage ? Kavya told him that she is very nervous over the whole issue and she just could not imagine the fact that the marriage is going to take place in a "Registar…

Software Heaven ...

Ah, we were all brought up by hearing stories about mystical characters who live up above us. Its starts from Yama dharma to Chitragupta to Rakhshasa's to Mogini's. I am sure none of us (even who told such stories) would have seen them (they do not want to also), but the way they narate those stories, a screen un-winds in our mind and we start to paint faces for those unseen GOD's, you wont believe, for a long long time I used to co-relate our good old actor Mr. S.V. Ranga Rao as Yama always, dunno why, but when I hear stories about Yama, this guys face is vizualized in my mind.OK, here is a small imagination of how our HELL or HEAVEN would be, if it has to like a typical software company which has Project Managers, Project Leads, Team Leads, Team Members, HR, Admin, Finance etc etc. Here I spell my imagination in that way and in my own style ...: Hi, Chitragupta, How are you doing today ?:: Hey dude ... i am doin cool ...: So can you brief me with the status of the projec…

Its Demi-God's Birthday...

Image
Its the birthday of our country's demi-god, everyone knows he is a cricketing genuis, but not many people know that he is the one who has brought in great changes in my life. I have grown seeing him and I truly respect and admire him for the way he carries himself on and off the field. He taught me life's basic qualities like modesty, sincerity, committment and attitude, I still cherish the day (12th April 2000) I met him for the first time in my life at Chepauk stadium during a cricket match...
I just should say that I was attracted by the way that genius spoke to me, he asked me about my studies, he asked me about my new job (I was new to Covansys that time), he actually spoke to me like a brother, also he adviced me to be committed in whatever I do. I felt as if I have attained the purpose of my birth in this world that day. I always celebrate this day as my own brother's birthday, and I make sure that I visit a nearby temple and pray for his well being. Some people do n…

Movie Review - Horton Hears a Who

Image
What else I can say, other than, I once again cried buckets after watching this cute, sweet, wonderful, lovely, unbelievable, extrodinary, terrific, super movie called "Harton Hears a Who". I wish our INDIAN film directors too think of such creative movies. Oh man, this is even better than ICE AGE 1 (of course that's a classic beauty). Would you believe that the entire movie is happening on a small spec over a flower ? unbelievable imagination rite ? I could see your eye brows raised up, yes, that's the feeling you will have after watching this movie...
It not only gives us entertainment and laughter, but also it teaches us a BIG lesson of how to be kind to other, no matter what they do for us. It also stress upon the very important factor of life, "Just keep up your words" (I do follow that for sure). The story is all about an elephant (Harton) tries to save a whole world of people who are living inside a spec, and how he overcomes the ordeal that he faces …

I Will be back ...

I (Vineeth) was in no mood to get back to my military base when Anjali is due to deliver a baby, but when we are serving for the nation, we have no place for emotions or centiments, so I have to bid adieu to Anjali today evening. I spent most of the day with her, but I somehow could not tell her the news that I have to leave tonight. Anjali was very happy that I am at her bedside, and she was asking me every now and then "You are not returning to your camp, right ?". I just replied her with my usual smile and got one back from her...I was constantly getting wireless messages from my Lt. General and confirming my joining date. I too know the seriousness of the situation, and I was equally keen to join my battalion. I got an urgent message from my commander that my best frined "Naipaul" was killed in a gun fire between the millitants, it landed as a rude shock on my head, and i could not control my emotions. There was this emotional battle in my mind saying, "If…

Profiles ...

Lakshman was sent to a nearby temple where CHARTS for marriages will be available every sunday, even though he likes to sleep for a long time on sundays, but he cant afford to that sleep as he needs to go there and check out the CHARTS before its too crowded, he wonders how complex of a process, this society has adopted for marriages. He pulled out a chart which comes under the prefered year of birth and started searching for the right one, he very well knows the constraints and before taking a note of that particular horoscope, he need to do a quick validation against the norms and then validate it...
Some had good qualification and a good job, but their expectation does not match to his needs, some had matching expectations but that does not match his requirements, at one stage he was totally fed up and cursed himself for such a situation. He went to chk out the charts without even having his breakfast and came home by noon. His aging mom could clearly see the dejection on his face. …

Indian Premier League Blasts off ...

Cricket's biggest extravaganza begins today at Bangalore and the entire city is rocking tonight. Its the first of its kind in this sport, where in the concept was absorbed from the famous European Football League, where small teams will be formed with the inclusion of various sporting legends of the game from various countries...
Who would say a NO to watch Sachin Tendulkar and Shane Warne facing each other on the field, who are now playing for their representing county and not their countries. So this short version of the shorter version of the game (I mean 20-20) is expected to create the spark and ignite the hearts of zillion cricket fans in the country. Its gonna be a treat for the next 45 days and it is going to bring in more excitement than watching the World Cup. Players from all 10 test playing nations have been bid to take part in this tournament and to stress on this point, a huge sum of money has been invested in this tournament, that itself has created a big expectation…

Couple ...

Varun was shouting on the top of his throat, "Hey Kavyaa, where are the car keys, and dont forget to put in those mineral water bottles in the bag, we may need it when we are climbing up the hill", yes, the more admirable couple of that apartment are all set to go out for a trekking. Kavya came out of the house with her hands full and the door key swinging between her lips, she gave a nice kick on Varun's ass and signed him by action to take out the keys from her mouth and lock the door, Varun had to obey to that kick and promply locked the door, and returned the kick back to Kavya....They are heading to the tallest peak of Karnataka called Mulliangiri Betta, they will be joined by Varun's colleagues mid-way. Varun had already planned a surprise for Kavya, moment he started his car, the sony speakers melted the voice for which Kavya would die, oh yaa, its her favourite M S Subbulakshmi's collection, Kavya just gave a tight hug to Varun and whispered "I Love …

Love for "Dummies" ...

Life has become a "Mega Serial" for Vineeth, in the sense, too many breaks, dis-jointed story line, never knows where he is heading to, this is what people call as "mid-life crisis". At the age of 30, Vineeth is comfortably placed at a software company with a handsome ransome, he has owns a good flat in bangalore, he has all the gadgets that are needed to kick-start a family, but something is stopping him from getting married and the funny thing is, he himself is trying to figure out what that "something" is....As every one knows, life is more like a pendulum and it keeps swinging between the good's and bad's, up's and down's, cheer's and sorrow's, but Vineeth thought that his pendulum has swung to the extreme end of bad luck and its never gonna come back, wait wait wait, our hero is not suffering from any love failure, his worry is all about his failure to love someone. He used to think, what are the qualities a man should possess…

Peace or Politics ...

Ah, our politicians have their own style of pulling out tricks every now and then, this time its the visit of Ms. Priyanka Vadra to the Vellore Jail to meet one of the accused (Nalini) who was a part of her dad's assasination. I know Ms. Priyanka is not directly into politics, but she hails from a family who's prime profession is politics...
I totaly respect and admire the visit by Priyanka, whatever be the background motivation for this meeting, but going and meeting an accused who was part of killing her father, really needs a BIG HEART. I am sure it must have been an emotional one from both the sides and its pretty weired to think what they could have talked. As far as the sources of media goes, it looks like Priyanka enquired about Nalini's daughter and also congratulated on her successfull completion of MCA that too with a distinction. Also Priyanka spoke to Nalini in detail about what exactly happened on that fateful day of May 21st 1991.

It was believed that both of …

தமிழ் புத்தாண்டு நல்வாழ்துக்களோடு, என் கவிதைகளை படிக்கும் சுமையையும் உங்களிடம் தருகிறேன், இன்பமும், துன்பமும் கலந்தது தானே புத்தாண்டு ...

1. பேனாவின் மை கறைய தொடங்கியது,
காகிதத்தில் காவியமாய்
நெஞ்சத்தில் சுமை குறைய தொடங்கியது
அவள் என் முன் வந்தாள் ஓவியமாய்

2. வாழ்க்கை எனக்கு ஒரு கேள்விக்குறி,
எதிர்காலம் என்னவென்று தெரியாததால் அல்ல,
என் காதலை அவள் ஏற்காததால்

3. கருவை சுமந்து பார், தாயின் வலி புரியும்,
தனிமையை சுமந்து பார், ஏக்கத்தின் வலி புரியும்,
சாவை சுமந்து பார், பிரிவின் வலி புரியும்,
காதலை சுமந்து பார், வாழ்க்கையின் வலி புரியும்

4. வண்டுகளுக்கும் இறைவனுக்கும் இடையே வாக்குவாதம்,
பூக்களில் மட்டும் தான் தேன் எடுக்க அனுமதி என்கிறார் இறைவன்,
உன் இதழ்களிலும் தேன் எடுக்க கோரி கெஞ்சுகின்றன வண்டுகள்

5. வெறித்த பார்வையும்,
முளைத்த தாடியும்,
வரண்ட உதடுகளும்,
நடுங்கும் விரல்களும்,
ஊர்ஜினம் செய்தது, காதலின் தோல்வியை

6. நம் காதல் தெய்வீகமானது என்றாய் நீ,
பட்டாணி சுண்டலில் உப்பில்லை என்றேன் நான்,
நம் காதலை யாராலும் பிரிக்க முடியாது என்றாய் நீ,
கடற்கரையில் காற்று குறைவாக உள்ளது என்றேன் நான்,
உன் கண்களில் தோன்றி மறைந்தது…

Promotion...

Varun was not so sure about his new assignment and he has his own hooks hanging over his head about his new job. Kavya on the other hand thought that it’s a very good break for Varun in his career and she was pretty much excited about it, infact she was aslo happy with the hefty package Varun has got with his new employeer…. Varun started the discussion with Kavya, Varun: Hey I don’t know yaa, something is disturbing me, and I feel heavy Kavya: Ya Varun, even I feel the same way and it’s very heavy for me too Varun: So do you feel that I have done a mistake by taking up this new assignment ? Kavya: I don’t know, but certainly you did a mistake Varun: Well, it won’t be nice if I decide to go back to my old decision Kavya: It’s too late to go back or reset Varun: Don’t you think you should have told me all these before I made up my mind ? Kavya: What to do, even I could not say a no and you would’nt have accepted to it Varun: Well, whatever may come, I have decided to stick on to my decis…

Piece of Advice ...

This young guy was about to get married and he has his own anxiety and dreams about his future wife. He is a very shy type persona and generally keeps quite. One day he gets his chance to meet a girl who may be a probable bride for him, the usual customs went on fine and both the families were about to agree on this alliance and go ahead with the marriage preperations …

This guy’s father came to him one day and knowing his shy personality, he adviced him saying, “My son, don’t be shy and timid at this stage, you feel free to ask whatever you want to your future father-in-law, and please always remember that you should ask for something bigger and then only you will get what you actually wanted, for example, if you want a bike, you should ask for a car, if you want an aparment you should ask for a villa, if you want a gold ring, you should ask for a diamond ring”, hope you got my point”, after this piece of advice, his father leaves his room. Our hero got the message and he too was conv…

Types of Proposal ...

This is just an imagination of how people of different professions will propose to a girl ...Carpenter - Hey darling, you have hit a nail straight into my heart, and no cutting plyer could take it out, please apply some turpentine to my wounded heart and lets unite like a fevicol.Plumber - When i think of you, love flows like a leaking tap.

Rajinikanth - Bursts out on Hoggenakkal

The one and only Super Star of the WORLD, Rajinikanth today burst out during the KOLLYWOOD meet which was held at Chennai today. He blasted all the politicians of both the states and warned them not to practice such cheap tactics just because the election is in sight. He requested them to act with some brain. He was too emotional in his speech and was spitting fire in his words. If he thinks like those cheap politicians, and that too for the mass of followers under his belt, Rajinikant can provoke any level of violence to the people of Karnataka, but he will not do that, and all political parties should understand this and stop blowing up this Hoggenakkal issue. Here is the link at which you can watch this speech Rajinikanth - On Hoggenakkal

Resigned ...

This day is one emotional day for me as i have resigned from my current company after nearly 9 years of my service. I know its a very tough decision that i have taken, but i have no choice other than quitting. I am not a kind of person who frequently jump jobs, this is my second jump in my 10 years of service, but this time i really felt that i need this change, as my career seem to go and hit a blind dead end, and its my responsibility to take appropriate action ...
I took this decison based on some actions taken by my management which really upset me and I felt very bad over those decisions. I felt that my management is not really taking care of my team and they failed to sense the quality of the resources. I happened to lose two good quality people just for the heck of it. Today they have taken a replacement for my team by paying a very high salary to a new comer, if the management would have spent half that amount on the old guys, they would have retained them as well as their expe…

Hogge "Nakkal"

I always wonder whether GOD has given the organ called "brain" for both TN and KA politicians ? they are always upto some fight or other towards their neighbouring state, and the issue always centers around "water". Just to gain some political advantage some stupid party has pulled out this age old issue and is trying to create a scene out of this. The verdit from the center is very evident that, karnataka people should not try to own the "Hoggenakkl" part of kaveri which runs its main path inside tamil nadu. There was an aggrement which was put between the two states long long ago, and suddenly out of the blue some bloody politician has digged this out and trying to make the life misserable for innocent people like us ...
First this old politician of TN should have kept quite, he waiting at the door of his death is spelling some unwanted statements and is upseting the rythm of normal life and creating chaos amidst the people of two states, already we all …
