My Picks of 2009 ...

I Loved Reading
Yaaro Oruthiyin Diary Kuripugal - By Nilaa Raseegan. Its collection of short stories by my buddy Nilaa Raseegan and the way he has penned some of the stories are simply too good. If you folks wanted to read that book, you can purchase that online HERE. It costs just 70 bucks and I am telling you, it’s all worth every penny. Congrats my buddy!!! You rock and you continue to rock forever.
Song that went in Loop
Mazhaiye Mazhaiye from Eeram movie, music directed by Thaman and sung by Ranjit. I wud have heard this song umpteen number of times.
Movie which made me say "Wow"
Again, it goes to Eeram, wonderful screenplay and they never used the conventional formula for a ghost movie.
Deaths which shook me
Michael Jackson - He is a great human being than a pop singer. Excellent dancer, a great entertainer Y S R - Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh who died in a helicopter crash. He is a great leader and a humble personality
Happiest Sporting Moments
The day Sachin Tendulkar comp…

Recap 2009 ...

Well, this year too completed on a peaceful note and GOD has blessed be with a routine life with no major detour. This year belonged to few "firsts" in my life which I will be sharing in this post. Both personally and professionally I would say there is not much of a change in 2009 and that is good. Folks at home are blessed with maintaining their good health and my financial status too seem to be fine with no slump whatsoever. I have added few good friends to my kitty and on that lot, two folks became really very close to me and this indicates that my "Friends for Life" count increased by two. B and S thanks a lot for coming in to my life and I am truly blessed to have known you folks this year and hope our friendship continues forever. Also I came to know few good friends via Twitter and my Blog and I welcome those buddies into my friends circle as well...
Few abroad trips in 2009 took care of all the purchase I wanted to do and I have become rich by few additiona…

Spineless Society ...

Ok guys, let’s get this straight. We are all human beings and every human being thinks that he or she has the rights to be selfish and I totally agree, but make sure you take a firm stand and do not try to jump guns. If you chose to be selfish, be selfish all thru your life, if you chose to be a person who would fight for injustice, fight for it all thru your life. It is highly disgusting to see the way our society is screaming over this "Ruchika's Molestation" case, what were we doing for 19 long years ?? Scratching our balls (Oh yaa, I am pissed off and kindly bear with my language). What was Ruchika's dad doing all these years ?? What was Ruchika's so called friend doing all these years ?? Covering their ass behind the bush ?? When you care so much for your daughter or friend, bloody your folks should have made this noise 19 years back. Everyone knows that our judicial system is a non-sense, but it has not changed now, so what kind of justice you are expecting…

Prairie Dogs - Learn from them ...

Image
I would say this is one of the best episodes of "Wild Discovery" I have watched so far. This time they were covering one of the most endangered species of this planet the "Prairie Dogs", so what made me to write a blob on that ? No, it’s not the scenic beauty they showed or the lovely chases they usually show, it is purely because of the magic these "Prairie Dogs" weaved in my life. This was the first time I am seeing those "rat" like creatures and I should admit the fact that I fell in love the moment I saw them. I always love rats and squirrel type of mammals, and this one would now top the list from here on. These cute little creatures are doing a world of good to our nature and planet earth of course they convey a very strong message to humans like us and that message is nothing but "Love is Life ...". I am gonna narrate what I saw in that program and all the information that is being shared here is proprietary to "Discovery&q…

Flashback Time ...

This post has been inspired by reading one of my fellow bloggers post and hence I first thank "Chutney Post" for kindling my childhood and then inspiring me to write this. I am going to take you all to 1984 and this incident happened in my school at Mylapore (P S Senior Secondary School) when I was doing my 2nd std. Satish being a very average student got only B section and not A section. In my school A section guys are a bit intelligent than the B section and C section guys and that is what the management thought and it may be true as well. Me being a typical Leo always had a gang around me to laugh and obey to my commands (appave naanga Bhaashaa thaan) and as expected I used to occupy the last bench and the bench before mine was girl’s bench, well, let’s not think anything dirty here, as we are still in 2nd standard ... :)
There used to be four groups in my school Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire and Topaz and I belonged to the Emerald team and I was the team leader for that, yaa al…

Long Distance Call ...

Ranga would always be waiting for his annual holidays to come because that is the only time he gets to see his grandparents who are living in a very beautiful village near "tenkasi" a very scenic place in Tamil Nadu. He would not want to miss even one annual leave and before even the exams start he used to tell his dad and mom that they should take him there the very next day after the exam gets over. Though Ranga used to live in a very posh bungalow in the city, his heart always liked that village house of his grandparents. He was too young to understand the family politics and he has no clue of why his dad and mom are living away from his grandparents or why his grandparents are not coming and living with them, but he did not give more attention to figure out the reasons and all he wants is to go to that village. Taking bath in the river which flows right at the back door of the house, drinking the fresh milk which was taken just out of cow's bowl, climbing those chikk…

Divide and Rule ...

Before getting independence the britishers were adapting this "Divide and Rule" technique to rule INDIA and every Indian opposed that and our ancestors fought hard to get us this so called independence just to hand out INDIA to a set of rotten politicians who are ruling this precious country just by mafia power. We are the fuckers to be blamed for all these mess INDIA is facing now, we are not sensible enough in choosing the right leaders and we are all becoming so selfish and we are more than happy that the mess is not entering our houses, and we care a damn for anything that can happen to our neighbor. Saving money in the bank and giving it for our next generation is next to useless, we should give our next generation a very peaceful and a happy place to live, clean air to breath and sufficient water for them to survive, money cannot buy any of the above said things ...
What the politicians are now doing is the same what the British people did for us, but again let’s not fo…

Leave the Tiger ...

I don't know why each and every person in this world is so concerned about the private life of an individual, and that too when it comes to celebrities, it is even worse. Before we commenting on someone's personal life, let us put ourselves in their shoes and then say that comment, privacy is something every human being has as his or her birth right. The latest developments on the Tiger Woods case is actually disgusting, why targeting an individual just because he is a celebrity? We all admire and like that genius of a person as a golfer and our boundaries stop there, we have no right to poke our nose to know what Tiger Woods is doing beyond the golf course or what he would be doing after playing golf, it is all up to him and he has all rights to do whatever he wants to do ...
The US television channels are no worse than our INDIAN television channels, every channel is trying to make fun of Tiger Woods and building comedy skits on him and working hard to increase their TRP rati…

We are World No.1 ...

What an emphatic win and a tremendous performance by the INDIAN team, they simply outplayed the Lankans in all departments of the game and this unit is so far the best Indian contingent we have ever seen with respect to the percentage of fight backs our team has made after seeing early hemorrhage for the top order line-up. I thought the second test against the Lankans wud be one of the best performance in this series and Shewag proved me wrong by coming out with a fiery, merciless and a ruthless knock of 293, at that stage the Lankans did not lose the match by numbers, they were already losers by their morale, and that is the impact a swashbuckling player like Shewag can do to the opponents ...

The way Shewag insulted the Lankan bowlers, any pacer would feel humiliated, and the icing on the cake was when Shewag demolished Muralidharan with his "Go-Attack-Kill" attitude, and it seriously demoralized Murali and would have had similar nightmares of what Warne had on Sachin Tendu…
