Mumbai Vs Terror = Shame on INDIA

At last the drama got over at Mumbai. It was an incident of shame for our country. I am not seeing this as a "terrorist" attack by some pakistani's, it’s a shameful terrorist attack by "indians" on "indians". The shocking revelations that are coming out after all these shootings and fireworks, are very painful to hear. Some bloody basterd's have got bribe from the terrorists and then allowed them into our country, if they would have been sincere to their profession, today we would not have lost 100 innocent lives. Just imagine if this cheap mentality gets into our fellow brothers who guard our nation, you and I would not be peacefully blogging here. As long as we do not eradicate the deadliest devil called "bribe", there is no point in aiming to be the super power at 2020 ...
It was told that some terrorists have got into the Taj hotel and have held some hostages, that was the initial spark we got, but later another news flashed on the TV…

Day in the life ...

That place was heavily crowded and people where running here and there like mad, for him it looked as if every individual is running behind a dream to achieve, a life to lead, a necessity to earn, a compulsion to live, a ride to an unknown destiny; but everyone has a factor in common, that is, "To make money". That was one of the most busiest railway stations of Mumbai and usually trains there would run jam packed, an aerial view of that train would make you think as if a caterpillar with many hands and heads on its side, is running as fast as it can. People just walk over anything and everything to catch a train, it can be a basket or a carpet, or a trunk box or you or me, they just don’t care, their only aim is to catch that train...
Mumbai is very famous for "Dabba Wala's" whose commitment and the process they adapt in delivering the "tiffin boxes" to their fellow mumbaiker's is something amazing, and to cream it on the top, they have even gone …

If I can help you ...

The morning was at its best in this village, the rays of the sun spraying a vibrant yellow on the green paddy fields and farmers were busy in sowing the seeds for the next season, there were white cranes standing tall in the mid of those green fields and gives us an impression as if an artist has spilt his white wax paint on a green canvas. There is a huge pump set which is pumping out water in a gush across that wide spread farm land, ladies were busy in stemming those baby rice crops at a speed which even a dual processor could not do, at a distant there is a railway track on which an old steam engine is rushing to some unknown destination by vomiting a thick smog of coal dust, Vinay kept looking at this scenic beauty which is in absolute contrast to the city life he lives ...
Vinay is an Agricultural student who has come to this village to study about a specific variety of cultivation which is happening only at this village and gotta prepare a thesis on the same. He was more interes…

Father of Villains ...

One of my favorite villain’s of all times is no more. He actually is the godfather of setting up the guidelines of how a villain should be on screen. He was cursed to the core by all MGR fans and in fact people used to hate him from the bottom of their heart, and that’s the success of this genius of an actor. He is very famous for his voice and any mimicry artist will first start mimicking his voice before he moves on to others. He is very famous for this dialogue in one of his movies "Dei Maayaandi...” the tone at which he said that got into the hearts of millions of tamilians ...

He shared the screen space with lot of top actors of yester years especially Sir. Shivaji Ganesan, Sir. MGR and he also played the villain role to our top heroes of all times Mr. Rajinikanth and Mr. Kamal Hassan. He was there in the industry for almost 60 years and has played close to 700 movies. He and his counterpart Mr. Veerappa are supposed to be the most notorious villains of tamil cinema who have …

Back to Home ... Sweet Home ...

Ah, after a tiresome 30 hours of journey, I am finally back to my sweet home "Chennai". I vacated my hotel room on the 15th morning at 6:00 AM and to me it looked like the nature is crying buckets and given me a teary send off, oh ya, it was pouring cats and dogs at New York in the morning. The cab which I have booked came on time and I reached JFK by 6:45, even before the Emirates counter was open. I had too many worries in my mind, one related to my excess baggage weight and another one was the fear of traveling for 14 hours non-stop, but little I knew that I am going to have a fantastic 14 hour journey, wanted to know "What happened ?" ....I checked in my two huge suitcases at the counter and I was mentally prepared to pay the excess baggage amount if they asked me to do so, but God’s grace, even though I had an excess of 6 pounds per piece, the female who was issuing my boarding pass, did not even see the weights, she simply pasted the tag which was checked in …

For No One's Fault ...

Its Kavya's 27th birthday and she is not too excited about that. This is the fourth birthday after marriage and Kavya could sense that her life has changed and swayed a lot from what she had expected out of marrying Varun. "Varun has changed", murmured her lips, her memories rolled back to 2002 the year she met Varun at a conference in Singapore, a guy who has sharp "features" and no girl would want to miss a chance of seeing him, quite attractive guy. He had that charming smile on his face all the time and his sense of humour was incredible, there were days, Kavya thronged to get an intro to Varun ...

She came back to INDIA and though she does not believe in luck or fate, but that incident made her to believe in those, what a surprise, Varun was sitting next to her in that "Singapore Airlines" and he was busy in chatting with someone, occasionally he grins while chatting and laughs to himself, the devil inside Kavya tempted her to see with whom he is …

Last Weekend @ New York ...

It was my last weekend at New York and I am very much excited about that for two obvious reasons, one being the feeling that the same time next week, I will be in INDIA and the next one is the visit of my close friend Paul from Chicago. I reached my cousin's place on Friday night and had some good dinner. Then it was fun time with all the room mates and we were laughing like mad for nothing. We watched this movie called "Chakkarakatti" which was horrible to the core, but we all had nice fun. At times I feel proud to be single, as you get to execute what you wanted to do and can enjoy every moment without any pinch of worry when you are with your friends, if you are married, and you are out with your friends, that happiness quotient will not be 100%, I know there are people ready to oppose this statement, but that's purely my perception about married life ...
Saturday morning myself and my cousin got up early and then rushed to Newark airport to pick up my friend, thou…

Sourav Ganguly, the man who made the entire world to look towards INDIA in the world of cricket due to his skilful captaincy. He was one of the greatest left hand batsmen INDIA has ever produced. He is extremely stylish and his cover drives are a treat to watch. He has this immaculate skill of driving through the off, even when it’s packed with 7 fielders. People, who have cribbed about him, should think of all those good days he had and all the entertainment he has given to this nation of billion fans.

He is one of the most successful captain India has ever produced, to me I would rate him the best amongst all the other captains of India. His aggressiveness on the field was tremendous when he was at his peak. Yes we all know that he has spoiled his name on his own due to some unwanted comments and statements he made while he was captaining the side, and there was a drift within the team and that was evident on the recently concluded World Cup 2007. I could not agree rating ganguly'…

That's my house ...

I came to this house a decade back and it’s located in the most congested areas of Chennai. This is a complex where there are 30 different families living in all the 5 floors. I being single, I did not want a house with a kitchen or a hall, all I need is a room and a bathroom with tap and water connection. I was given a common place which is accessible by all the 30 tenants. It’s a pretty small 6 by 6 room and I cannot ask much more than that, as my situation is like that. I being a good observer, but I never advice or suggest anything to anyone, I would love to be a listener in most of the times...
Ravi is an "educated fool" as far as I know. He struggled a lot to get a job, at one time he used to sit idle all the time at home and will come to my room only to talk to himself, since my room is more like a closed enclosure, he will come in and bolt the door and will abuse his dad, mom, sister and all the other tenants, but it’s understandable, he has to vent his anger out at s…

Software Engineers ...

Once there lived a wood-cutter who would cut trees for his living. One fine day he went into the forest to cut woods, while cutting a tree, his axe slipped out of his hand and fell into the water, and suddenly the river god came out with a golden axe and showed him if that is his axe, the wood cutter says a no and then she goes down again and comes up with a silver axe and asked the wood cutter if that is his axe, the wood cutter says a no and again she plunges into water and then comes up with a bronze axe and asks the wood cutter if that is his axe, no says the wood cutter and finally she brings up his old rusted iron axe and asks him if that is his axe and he happily says yes, river god was impressed by his honesty and gave him all the axes and vanished. That is an old story, if we have to twist the same story in-line with a software engineer, how will that be, here is a small imagination...
Once there lived a software engineer who used to cut and paste code for his living, one fine…

Championship ...

Prasad shot to limelight overnight just for the simple reason that he is the one who has been selected from his village for the world chess championship. The entire village was jumping in joy and also they have seen Prasad winning medals in competitions like boxing, running, wrestling, high jump, long jump etc etc, so they were very confident that Prasad will surely be a world champion in chess as well. Not to doubt his abilities Prasad too have heard a lot about chess and he started to prepare mentally for the game by doing yoga and other mind exercises ...
Prasad was given a separate house with all loaded amenities and all the other villagers were informed that they should not disturb Prasad for a month and he should concentrate hard on winning this world championship, and that will get a big name to the village. Prasad became the center of attraction and he too enjoyed that attention. He was told that mental strength is the first priority to play chess and hence he needs to develop …

Chennai ... Chinna ... Cinema ...

The first sight of Chennai and its pulsating environment made Cinna to swoon, he has not seen such a place in his life before. This is the first time he has come out of his village amidst the opposition of all his family members who warned him to be circumspect in whatever he does. Chinna is one of the hundreds of young villagers who step into this city with aspirations of becoming a superstar. Chennai is a place where anyone can survive, it’s the city which welcomes the rich and the poor and keeps them mesmerized with its baffling nature. Every day in this city will be challenging, Chennai unfolds a whole new world to such new comers and will kindle them to search for their desire.

Triplilcane is one place where new comers to this city targets to get themselves an accommodation, it is the only location which is close to the Central Station and it’s the mother of mansions. Ev…

End of Meghadoot ...

Once there lived a rishi by name "Kalpatharu" who spent most of his life time in the forests of "Kundali", he by the grace of GOD got all the divine powers that is needed to protect this world from the asuras. He lived in the forest with his wife "Pundari" and his daughter "Samiksha". His daughter is very famous in that forest for her looks, as she is the most beautiful girl in that locality. Samiksha is a very obedient girl who will not do anything against her dad and mom's wish. Kalpatharu wanted to her to marry a person who is also a rishi and who follows the rules of "Pradhyushta" meticulously. The head of the asuras "Meghadoota" was madly in love on Samiksha and he somehow wanted to abduct her from the forest and bring her to the hell...

Rishi "Parjothyama" had a son by name "Veeramithra" who is one eligible bachelor who have all the qualities to marry Samiksha, even Kalpatharu wanted to give Samik…

Meaning to Life ...

Sandhya was a bundle of mixed emotions, she felt so bad that she is in such a terrible shape and she knows that there is no one to be blamed other than herself for this pitiable situation. She is not ready to pass on the buck and put the blame on Vineeth or on GOD for the situation she is in today, even though Vineeth is also responsible for this. It’s been almost a week since Vineeth spoke a word to Sandhya from the day she had that controversial conversation with him, she knew that it's just a small mis-understanding and things would settle pretty soon, but this one does not seem to settle, rather it is now growing worse like a closed wound. Sandhya is a character who will not do things, if she is not fully convinced, but this issue is very different here ...
Sandhya decided to break the silence and sent out a "Hi" email to Vineeth, as expected, no reply from him, she never thought that Vineeth is going to take this so seriously, and also he is not a personality who wou…
