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.

Movie which made me say "Wow"
Again, it goes to Eeram, wonderful screenplay and they never used the conventional formula for a ghost movie.
