Rakhi Ka Swayamvar ...

Image
I don’t know how many people know about this, there is this program called "Rakhi's Suyamvar" that is being aired on one of the hindi channels and this is considered to be the heights of reality shows. Rakhi herself in my opinion is a crazy peer shaped nut and she is off to choose her life partner at the end of this show, and the best part is, Rakhi's brother is the co host in that show and he is the one who interviews all those probable candidates (what a family???). I am flabbergasted by the way these channels invent such stupid ideas to increase their TRP ratings and this one surely tops the list...

We all know that these channels will even enter our bedroom and feast on that if we say OK, but where on earth those participants come from ?? I am seriously lost to digest the fact that the so called bridegroom's who are all educated and who are all coming from a well off family, why the hell they have to go so cheap ? The way those guys behave and beg is beyond w…

வார்த்தைகள் அற்ற ஒரு மௌனமான மாலை வேளையில் மனதுக்குள் ஒரு இனிய போராட்டம், உங்கள் இருவரில் யார் அழகு என்று, பல முறை கடிதம் அனுப்பியும் திரும்பிப்பார்காத நீயா ? இல்லை, ஒவ்வொரு முறையும் அந்த கடிதத்தை கிழித்து போடும் உன் அப்பனா என்று. ஆள் வளர்ந்த அளவிற்கு அறிவு வளரவில்லை உன் அப்பனுக்கு, உன் போன்ற ஒரு சப்ப பிகரை பெத்ததற்கே அவனுக்கு இவ்வளவு ஏத்தம் கூடாது. காலா காலத்தில் நடக்க வேண்டியது நடக்காவிட்டால் இப்படித்தான், நான் கூறியது உன் கல்யாணத்தை பற்றி அல்ல, உன் அப்பனின் மரணத்தை பற்றி.

எனக்கு ஒரு உண்மை தெரிந்தாக வேண்டும், அதிகாலை நான்கு மணிக்கெலாம் அந்த பெருச்சாளி எழுந்து உன் வீட்டு அடுபாங்கரையில் பாத்திரங்களை போட்டு உருட்டுகிறதே, அது அப்படி அந்த வேளையில் செய்யும் வேலை தான் என்ன ? நான் ஒரு முறை உன் வீட்டுக்கு வந்த பொழுது அது கையால் ஒரு சொட்டு காப்பி வாங்கி குடித்து விட்டு நான் பட்ட பாடு எனக்குத்தான் தெரியும், என் மொழியில் சொல்ல வேண்டும் என்றால், அந்த காபி, அவர் மண்டையில் என்ன இல்லையோ, அது போல இருந்தது. நமது குடியிருப்பில் "சமைத்து பார்" போட்டி வைத்த பொது, போட்டியின் பெயருக்கு ஏற்ப இருந்…

Talking MJ - The Human ...

Image
"August 29th 1958 - June 26th 2009 - Michel Jackson - RIP". Every soul like me who had a little idea about what POP music is all about, would have been injected to them by this legendary musician Michel Jackson (MJ). I would want to be very honest in this post and I don’t want to copy paste some of his all time golden hits which I came to know after his death, I have not listened to many of his songs except a few and that too without realizing that those songs were from MJ. I am not a person who fancies that kind of metallic music. This post is dedicated to this great person where I am not going to talk about his singing or dancing or composing skills, which the entire world knows, I am going to spell out few beans which not many people know and I too came to know from variety of websites, i.e Michel Jackson as a Human Being ...

MJ had a very troubled childhood and he was not blessed with a silver spoon, he spoke a lot about his personal life in his legendary speech which he…

Thinking Hard ...

Image
I have been seriously thinking of kicking off a parallel income, it's not that I am running short of finances, this is a thought which I have been debating within myself for a long time and in my family no one has ventured in to any kind of business, we are all more like "Mind your own business" types, after spending more than a decade in this competitive and pressurizing IT industry, I am seriously thinking of an alternative. Starting a new line of business gives me two benefit's, one is I can peruse my desire and start-up something which fascinates me and the other one is, it will take me off the worries of how this IT industry is going to shape up and take care of removing the hooks that are hanging over my head. I would want to startup something while I am at the prime of my IT career ...

I have been thinking of various business options and I bifurcated them into two, one is one the entertainment side, in the sense, trying out in the cine industry, of course &quo…

My Favourite Lyrics ...

Image
Music and Songs were always my one source of entertainment and there were songs which touched my heart, made me cry, made me fly as well, but there are few lyrics in various songs which really made a direct impact to my life and I would say, they played a major role in molding myself and I would like to list the top 10 lyrics which touched my life and my heart ...

10. This song is from "மறுபடியும்" and it starts like this "எல்லோரும் சொல்லும் பாட்டு ..." and the best lyrics of this song is this

நாயகன் மேலிருந்து நூலினை ஆட்டுகின்றான்
நாமெல்லாம் பொம்மை என்று நாடகம் காட்டுகின்றான்
மானிடன் ஜாதகம் இறைவனின் கையிலே
தயக்கங்கள் நேர்வதில்லை தெளிந்தவர் நெஞ்சிலே ...

God is having the string in his hand and he is exhibiting a drama as if we are all mere dolls.
Our fate is all in his hands
There is no confusion in a heart which is clear

This song talks about the essence of life, it clearly says that we are all string dolls to GOD and he is the one who controls us, our fate is decided by …

He - She ...

Image
He is extremely restless and so as she, both of them have to get out of this and set out free like others, but circumstances did not allow them to do so. He has drunk enough and he literally is swimming in water, and she on the other hand is totally in pain and she has no words to express her anguish, but she knows that she has to undergo this period of her life, coz without him her life is next to nothing. Both of them have no choice other than waiting for this phase of their life to get over ...

He called her up one day and he did not speak much, she knows his mind much better than anyone else, she asked him what she can do for him to feel better, still he responded with silence. She said she will meet him in a week's time and asked him to be patient, but that does not seem to have convinced him, he felt as if kicking himself for all this mess, but he knows that it will hurt her so much so he decided to be quite and went to bed, he has drunk enough and he just could not stand be…

Ready"Maid" Rape ...

Image
Everyone are talking about this Shiney Ahuja case, my next door kid who is doing his 2nd standard is following this case very keenly, why not I ? I should first admit the fact that I came to know that Shiney Ahuja is an actor only after this case was brought to light, I am not a movie buzz, hindi movies to me are like how "promises are to politicians", though I go ga-ga over few seriously good looking heroines like "Priyanka Chopra", "Katrina Kaif", "Amrita Rao", "Neha Dupia" etc etc, I just don’t follow that stream of entertainment. I personally feel that this case has been blown to proportions and they are actually washing the dirty linen in public. Every news channel is debating on this topic, WTF?? Of course the entire episode is all about that "F" I know, but since it happened between a so called popular actor and his maid, the issue added spice ...

I happen to speak to one of my friend who is a news anchor by profession;…

Ramblings of a Soul ...

Image
When destiny seems to be a moving target and aims appear to be smudged in your mind all that you can do is to search for a silent space in your brain to wander freely without being disturbed by any noise, it’s the noise made by your heart, which at times sounds like a music, at times sounds disturbing, when there is a time where you can't decide whether it's a noise or a disturbance, that's when your soul starts to ramble and search for something which no one knows what it is, including you ...

Who said, a confused mind is an "un-tied dog", just because it does not stand in one place you cannot say so. A confused mind is the place where all the inventions start, some invent for the mankind and some invent themselves. When the search of the unknown is truly on, the ultimate chaos kicks in and it makes us look really funny even for ourselves. Some come into your life to add confusion and some come into your life to clear them, but you will not know the result unti…

Dreams Shattered ...

Is it the beginning of the end of HONEYMOON period of Dhoni and his boys ? The team does not show any signs of fire right from the start of the tournament and they looked sloppy in all departments of the game and the entire nation did not take those two victories against the minnows that seriously, when it really mattered in the Super 8s the team did not deliver, we were looking like Zimbabwe against the windies and the English and least to say about yesterday's performance where India looked seriously out of sorts right from the word go. Shewag's absence was rightly felt as the team failed to give a decent start and the man who filled in that slot was not the right choice any more, Rohit Sharma is not a matured opener in my humble opinion ...

Dhoni needs such humiliating defeats and I would say that INDIA should face many more defeats like this and this would seriously make the team's think tank to work on the basics and sharpen the axe to get the eluding World Cup in 2011…

Once Upon a Time ...

Image
I was chatting with one of my college buddies today, he is in the US now and as expected he started to crib about that place and he said he wanted to come back blah blah blah ... but that chat took an interesting turn when the topic turned towards the golden days of our college where I was named as the most notorious of all and I would be there to bring out laughter in the class room quite often, he reminded me of few funny things which actually were my first trial experience in doing stand-up comedy in front of a crowd and those days I would say I am an amateurish performer and still I am ...

Mylapore to Royapettah

We a gang of 6 (decent) boys used to take bus number 1 from Mylapore to go to my college which was in Royapettah, and we have a friend who boards the bus at Thiruvanmiyur which is the starting point of that bus, and you won't believe he would reserve seats for us till mylapore, holding 5 seats till Mylapore and that too on a crowded route like 1 is not that easy, but h…

தாய் மண்ணே வணக்கம் ...

Image
மோகத்தின் உச்சியில் மயங்கித்தான் கிடந்தோம்
தாய் மண்ணின் மணத்தை நுகர்வதற்கு மறுத்தோம்
தேசமெங்கும் ஊழல் என்று மார்தட்டித்திரிந்தோம்
நம்வீட்டின் ஓட்டைகளை சரி செய்ய மறந்தோம்
போதுமடா சாமி என்று அயல்நாடு பறந்தோம் ...


பணம் ஈட்டும் ஆசையில் உறவுகளை துறந்தோம்
நம் நாட்டில் இல்லை என்று கடல் பல கடந்தோம்
கல்வி கற்கும் ஆவலில் ஈட்ட செல்வதை கரைத்தோம்
அயல் நாட்டு பட்டத்தை வெற்றி என்று நினைத்தோம்
அதுவும் வெறும் காகிதம் என்றறிந்து ஒரு நொடி திகைத்தோம்

பிறப்பையும், இறப்பையும் ஈமைலில் படித்தோம்
பெண் பார்க்கும் படலத்தையும் அங்கேயே முடித்தோம்
இட்டிலியும் தோசையும் அறியாதது போல் அலைந்தோம்
பிஸ்ஸாவும் பர்கரும் தெரிந்தது போல் நடித்தோம்
கோக்கையும், பீரையும் குலுக்கி குலுக்கி குடித்தோம்
நம் நிலைமையை நாமே எண்ணி மனதுக்குள் சிரித்தோம்

அயல் நாட்டின் பெருமைகளை பேசி பேசி மகிழ்ந்தோம்
நம் நாட்டில் அவை தோன்ற யுகமாகும் என்றிகழ்ந்தோம்
"fuck"கையும், "புல் ஷிட்டையும்" பேச்சினிடையே கலந்தோம்
அவையன்றி பேசவே முடியாதென்று விணைந்தோம்
மதிகெட்ட மானிடனாய் உருமாரிக்கிடந்தோம்

அன்று அந்நியனின் கைப்பிடியில் சிக்கித்தான் தவித்தோம்
அடித்தாலும் …

Logoff ... Shutdown ...

After slogging at work on an average of 18 hours a day for the past 8 days, and also reaching home just today morning, Satish has decided to tell **** off to his boss and then stay at home and take complete rest. I sensed that I am stressing myself to the core and I felt that a break is very much in need and thanks to the overnight rain which literally washed Bangalore and forced people to be inside the cars and sleep on the middle of the road with blinkers on and rain playing the drums on your car's roof. I too would have been a victim to one such nightmare, but my driving skills saved me from that as I sneaked my way back to office on those flooded roads of EGL and slept inside the server room or I would say tried to sleep on a sitting pose for nearly 4 hours ...

Work pressure is really demanding and I am slogging day and night for a management's fault and my boss does not seem to realize that, though he admits that it is his mistake in agreeing to a tough dead line, but I so…

வாழ்க்கையில் நாம் நிகழ்காலத்தை ஏனோ ஏற்க மறுக்கிறோம், அது கடந்தகாலம் ஆகும் வரை. மனித மனத்தில் தான் எத்தனை எத்தனை மாற்றங்கள், வாழ்கையின் அந்த ஒரு நொடியை, அந்த ஒரு நிமிடத்தை, அந்த ஒரு தருணத்தை, அந்த ஒரு நாளை தொலைத்து அழுதவர் தாம் இவ்வுலகில் அதிகம். பள்ளிக்கூடம் சென்ற நாட்களில், பள்ளிக்கூடத்தை வெறுத்தோம், கல்லூரி சென்ற நாட்களில், கல்லூரியை வெறுத்தோம், வேலைக்கு சென்ற நாட்களில் அலுவலகத்தை வெறுத்தோம், முதுமை எனும் அரவம் தீண்டியபின், நாம் வெறுத்த அந்த நாட்களை, உள்ளத்தில் களிப்போடு அசைபோட்டு பெருமைப்பட்டுக்கொள்கிறோம் ... இப்படிப்பட்ட ஒரு முரண்பாட்டை ஏன் நம்முள் வைத்தார் இறைவன் ?

அறுபதில் பாதியை கடந்த எனக்கு, பொறாமை எனும் குணம் இன்று என்னுள் தலை விரித்து ஆடிக்கொண்டிருக்கிறது, காலை எழுந்தவுடன் என் காலைக்கடன்களை முடித்தபின் நான் தங்கியிருக்கும் குடியிருப்பில் நடை பயிற்சி செய்வது என் வழக்கம், அப்படி செல்கையில் ஒரு நாள் ஒரு மழலையை சந்தித்தேன், கோடை விடுமுறையை முழுவதுமாக அனுபவித்துவிடவேண்டும் என்ற வெறி அவன் கண்களில் தெரிந்தது, பெரிதும் எந்த எதிர்பார்ப்பும் இல்லாத ஒரு பருவம் அது, அவன் கையில் இருந்த …

Pissed Off ...

I don’t know, I am slowly losing my patience day by day and especially since I have started driving in Bangalore. I just could not believe that the government of karnataka has got absolutely no sense whatsoever. There is this great division called BBMP (Bangalore B(not sure what this means) Mahanagara Palike), believe me guys, the folks who are working in this division are a bunch of jokers and fools. I seriously wanted to find the person who designed the bus stops in this f***ing city. You can find bus stops every possible place where you would not have imagined that they can have bus stops, Just when the road turns you will find one, Right in the center of a T junction you will find one, Just before you see the fly over ramping up you will find one, Right in the middle of a fly over (on the top) you can see bloody signal and a bus stop. Have you ever seen a signal right in the middle of a fly over ?? come to this irritating city Bangalore ...

BBMP is actually a place where idiots are…

Racism ... Just for Us ??

Well ... it’s a lesson that we Indians are forced to learn in a hard way. What is currently happening in Australia is something unbelievable and it clearly shows that the rest of the world is too jealous about the growth our country is gaining. Everyone in this world knows that we Indians are smart, intelligent and capable and it obvious that these reactions bound to happen. Australia is a place which is well known for this and racism is always there in their blood, we all know the way those folks play cricket, and you just cannot straighten a dog's tail. But I would say that we Indians are the ones to be blamed for all these...

There are many aspiring youngsters in INDIA who just wanted to do their higher studies abroad, well, there is a whole lot of money involved here and it is not that easy for every Indian to afford and send their children abroad for higher studies. I just wanted to ask one thing to all those who wanted to study or work abroad, if you are really serious about …
