LTTE - SriLanka - A Mess ...

Since the verdict of Supreme Court which said that the views presented in an individual's blog is going to provoke a community or a caste or a nation, that blogger is subjected to be responsible for any repercussions that happen after that, so keeping that verdict in mind, I would like to present my views on LTTE and Sri Lankan government in a very political way ... There may be difference of opinions on this post, but I would not be ready to debate on that. This post is purely my personal view on the issue and I am not responsible for mis-interpretation of this subject. I am an outsider like many others to this issue and hence I would like to take a neutral stand here and does not want to be biased. If I were the president of Sri Lanka, I too would have taken this extreme step, because I have left with no option other then weeding the LTTE out of my nation. Anywhere you go in this world, if a particular caste or community or a sect who try to fight against the government of the co

Happy Birthday GOD ...

Today is the day I usually celebrate, not by partying out, but by talking non-stop about my idol "Sir Sachin Tendulkar", today is the 36th birthday of my role model and I am blessed to have born in an era where Tendulkar lived and played cricket. We have not seen the greats of Sir Don Bradman, so I cannot appreciate much about that genius, but I have grown seeing this magician playing the game, and I am still mesmerized by the way he conducts himself ... I still remember the day when a small kid of age 16, with a hair style which resembled today's "Havells" advertisement (Shock laga laga Shock laga) walking into the field with a "POWER" logo bat, swinging and twisting his shoulder's and jogged into the cricket field, just to play 1 ball and had no clue about that in-swinger from Waquar Younis which shattered his stumps, there goes that kid with a dejected face and not knowing how to react on a 1st ball duck, I commented to my dad saying, "I do

Reminiscence ...

I don't know why, but I am feeling nostalgic these days and there is certainly a reason for that. Right from my childhood I always enjoyed summer, for variety of reasons though. I dont have the habit of going elsewhere to spend my summers, I dont visit relatives place and spend months together there, I am the lone child in my house, but I know how to make my summer holiday special. I used to spend time in drawing lots of cartoons, I discover / invent new new games which I can only play, playing pranks in-house with my mom as she will also be on leave (she was a teacher) and above all what if I dont mention about raw mangos ?? and an interesting story that hides behind that ... I used to go by walk to my school which is located very near to my house, the roads by which I used to go is very scenic there used to be trees on both the sides and it will be pretty cool and shadey, those trees will wear a yellow blanket of flowers over them and the fragrance that would mix along with the w

Mylapore "Thaer"

Times may change and everything around you may completely disappear, but certain traditions are always maintained and they are the only hope for us to assure the fact that, something’s cannot be changed in life. I am talking about this specific festival that happens in Myalapore Arulmigu Kabaleeswarar Temple, the "Panguni Peruvizha". I being a hardcore Mylaporean, I always wanted to be in town to see this festival, but owing to my professional schedule, I just could not make it to this festival for almost 5 years, but this time, me being in INDIA, I wanted to take a day off and attend this great occasion. I was born and brought up in this traditional place of Chennai and as you all know how a typical Brahmin Iyer would be called in colleges or schools, yes "Thair Saadham" and I am proud to be a part of that "Thair Saadham" community. I was always attracted towards this festival just because of this "Thaer", the way that mammoth structure is built
