Hatred-O-Phobia ...

This post is a kind of off shoot from the post I read on Sandhya's blog . The issue is about migrants within INDIA who migrate to other states for work or studies generally do not like that city and in turn starts developing hatred towards that city. I see this as a psychological disorder and it has nothing to do with the people or the culture of that city. Almost 90% of the migrants who moved to different cities within our country leaving their home town would want to go back to their hometown if there is a chance and no one wants to live in the city where they have migrated, it very well applies to me as well ... When I moved to Bangalore I used to hate this city to the bottom of my heart, it is just the feel that I am away from the place where I have lived for almost 28 years and suddenly when I came to this city, I just could not stand their culture, attitude and whatever these people in Bangalore do, I would make sure I find some fault or other, you won't believe, for a gu

தமிழ்ச்சுவை - புதிய இணையத்தளம்

After a long debate within myself, I am herewith launching an exclusive blog for my writings in tamil in this web blog . I have planned to pen a lot of short stories and humorous imaginations in this place. I have got very good feedback from my readers that my writing skills on tamil is much better than english and I too feel that I am much more expressive when it comes to writing in tamil, so from now on I request my readers to keep an eye on this blog and keep following me there as well. I have made some good plans to make this place as one stop shop for non-stop laughter. I would try to write as frequently as possible in this space and keep it as lively as possible, so please welcome to thamizhchuvai where there would be nothing other than nagaichuvai

Gone are those Days ...

Gone are those days where I used to cry and pester my dad to get me all those lovely assorted chocolates especially one particular brand called "Ravalgon" and carefully pack all of them (just 100 gms) inside a brown paper bag and I used to count the total number of students in my class and count those ravalgon's against each name, if there would be even one piece short, I used to run to the shop and get additional ravalgon's. That is one day where dad gets me this GEMS packet and that is all what I need. The thrill of wearing color dress to school and the pride of you being identified unique amongst the other uniformed sheep’s, teachers being so kind to you that day and not punishing you for any of your silly mistakes, you going to your class and distributing those chocolates by walking across all the benches and giving that one unique smile for your crush in your class and placing that additional Ravalgon in her hand and she giving back that vibrant smile ... and you

Searching For ...

The bus came to a screeching halt on that muddy road and all the dust which were following the bus all the way, overtook the bus with a sense of victory and Sanjay was promptly tapped on his shoulder by his co-passenger saying that his stop has come, Sanjay hurried himself out with a shoulder bag and he could see a whale of change in his village which he left 20 years back, but the one thing which has not changed is the saloon shop and its owner Siddhik Bhaai. The village which has not seen electricity till he was there, the village which has not seen a phone connection for ages, the village which does not know what a TV is all about, is now brimming with life, there is a browsing center, and there are cell phones towers, and there were satellite dishes smiling on top of every house, but the serenity of the village has not lost yet. Varun pinched himself to feel the reality, but Varun has not come to this village to see the changes which have happened in the recent past, he has come th

You Never Grow ...

I don't know why people cannot accept change, though we all know that it is the only constant thing in this world is "Change". I happened to or rather forced to attend a family wedding sometime back and off-late I have taken an oath, not to participate in any public gatherings which involved "old maami's". Though I enjoy being single and a little proud of that as well, I feel so uncomfortable when I give my physical presence to attend marriages or any such function for that matter, every maami and maama would look at you as an exhibition doll and I somewhat felt like, people showcase you as the next candidate who is available for marriage and all the maami's and maama's will give a "avanaa-nee" kinda looks ... I was dragged all over the mandapam and made to stand in front of all maami's and maamaa's and everyone would give a glance at me and would start the conversation by complementing my growth rate "Evvalo Periyavanaa Valarn

Examination Hall ...

It’s time to share some of my examination hall humor in this post; and also to give an insight to my readers regarding how brilliant I was when it comes to studies. I am never a bright student in my academics, my dad actually had planned to send me to KARGIL as I always pass in border ;-)) (romba mokkaiyo ??), and every examination to me is a urine test, oh yaa, moment I see the question paper, my bladder gets filled up and there is a very interesting story that lies behind that and I will tell that at the end. This post will talk about the funniest incidents that happened during various phased of my academics, I can guarantee you folks a LOL experience after reading this. Well, my entire life is glued with humor and fun ... I am proud to say that I was detained in my 6th std in one of the famous schools in mylapore, P.S Senior Secondary School and that is not because of I performed badly in a subject, it is purely because of the fight between my dad and that school's principal (Ms

TGIF ...

Today is an eventful day in my life as this is the first day I had been to a pub in my life. I was having a very different view about pubs, but today's visit changed it all. I thought the atmosphere would be full of nicotine and the entire place will stink like hell, but this place TGIF is really good, and not to mention that it’s been very expensive, but the place was neat and clean and the quality of food they served was very nice. It was a party hosted by my friend for he buying a Labrador (do you need a reason for a bachelor to party ?) and it was total fun ... We were a gang of 7, where all of them except me were married and hence I had the full rights of enjoying the beauty of some really good looking girls, I should seriously admit the fact that one girl with a green top and a jean really has stolen my heart, man, that is what I call "drop-dead-gorgeous", her dressing sense was decent and her nose was as sharp as a compass (NB: I am lost when I see a sharp nose in

Funniest Interview ...

I would say that I have took one of the most funniest interviews that I have ever taken in my life today. I was just LMAO after coming out of the interview. This one I took for a 4 year experienced candidate. This is for the post of an Senior Engineer and we were looking out for some one who is a master of all trade and jack of none, and to be honest that is the kind of profile I was looking for. I just could not control my laughter during the interview and at the same time I am shocked to see such resources exists in this industry. I know experience shapes a man, but in this case it has not done any change. That candidate's english was the reason for humour and I am putting it as raw as possible so that my readers can also enjoy. Non-IT folks, kindly excuse, coz most of the terms you may not be able to appreicate ...

மார்கழி மாதத்து மழை ...

அது ஒரு அருமையான மார்கழி இரவு, சில்லென்று உடல் கீறும் காற்றும், நாசிகளை துளைத்துசெல்லும் பவழமல்லி பூவின் வாசமும், கிள்ளிஎரிந்த முழு நகத்தை போன்ற பிறை நிலாவும், மென்மையாக இதயம் வருடும் இளையராஜாவின் "நிலவு தூங்கும் நேரம், நினைவு தூங்கிடாது" பாடலும் என்னை கவந்து இழுத்துவிட்ட பொழுது அது. அந்த சுகத்திலும் என்னுள்ளிருந்த கண்ணீரை கறந்து இழுத்தது சுமதியின் முகம். விழிகளில் கசிந்த அந்த கண்ணீர்த்துளி, மெல்ல என் காதுகளின் இடுக்கில் வழிந்து, அந்த குளிர் காற்றுடன் சேர்ந்து உறைந்து போனது. நான் கேட்காமல் எனக்கு அனைத்தையும் அளித்த இறைவன், நான் விரும்பிக்கேட்ட என் சுமதியை மட்டும் எனக்கு தர மறுத்ததின் காரணத்தை தேடி அலைந்தது என் மனது... உலகத்தில் உள்ள அனைத்து பெண்களை காட்டிலும் அழகு என் சுமதி, குட்டையான உயரமே இருந்தாலும், அவளின் கண்களில் தெரியும் அந்த ஒளியும், சிரிக்கும் போது இடக்கன்னத்தில் தோன்றும் அந்த குழியும், காற்றில் அலைபாயும் அந்த கூந்தலை அவள் இரு விரல்களால் காதுகளின் இடுக்கில் சொருகும் அந்த தோரணையும், தூரத்தில் நின்றிருந்தாலும், மெலிதாக உதிர்க்கும் அந்த குறுநகையும், என்னை கட்டித்தான் போ

You and I ... In this Beautiful World ...

Sindhu just could not get out of the shock that she was proposed by one of her very good friend, she tried to convince herself that it is a natural thing, but her heart refused to get convinced, "How come someone who knows me very well can do this for me" is the question she was asking herself again and again. Shiva and Sindhu were very close friends, they know each other from her NIIT days, Sindhu felt very comfortable with Shiva right from day one, she considered him to be one of her best friends, she shared almost everything under the sun with him, Shiva is a very good listener, quite an opposite character to Sindhu, he never gets tensed or excited, he is calm and composed. Shiva too felt nice in being with Sindhu, he had a secret crush on her right from day one, but he never exposed that out ... Sindhu is a good looking girl and she would be an obvious choice for any guy, she is an extrovert too. Lot of guys wanted befriend her but she preferred to hand pick her circle an

Story Behind my Name ...

Lots of folks have asked me if I am a person who belong to that particular religion after seeing my name as "Bhaashaa" and I think still lots of folks think that I am from that religion. Just to clear some air here, I just wanted to put this post. I have been nick named as "Bhaashaa" since 1995 as that was the time when super star's movie "Bhaashaa" got released. Me a fanatic of Rajinikanth I actually started living as Bhaashaa for the rest of the college days, I used to walk like Rajini, I used to see like Rajini, and in short I lived like a person called Rajini. My college is very close to Satyam Theater in Chennai, and on the first day - first show of Bhaashaa movie, our gang was all ready to welcome our thalaivar's new movie flick and this is how the scene unfolded that day 14 years back ... Around 43 members gathered outside Satyam theater and me being a known person to that manager in Satyam, I was given a red carpet welcome to get the first

A Photo and Its Story ...

Not sure why, but this snap is a very special one to me. It is the view of my HALL in my apartment. I don’t know if any other moment in my life would have given me such a great pleasure, other than the moment I got this huge flat in Bangalore. I was all excited about my first big house which I got out of my earnings, though the amount was quite high when I bought this flat compared to the salary I was drawing at that point in time, but I could see the happiness in my dad's face and also a sense of pride, well, I have a story behind that as well ... I was never a great kid during my school, I am not that good at studies and I always used to fail in all the subjects, well, that is what is my potential at that time, what can I do, my mom and dad used to fight over this and my house would be more like a war zone on the day I show my report card to my dad, he was terribly worried about my future, though I did not pick up any bad habits or bad company of friends, I was still a problemati

FedEx the Match ... Andy the Heart

Never knew that a game can be so cruel at times. What an epic final this was, Andy Roddick and Roger Federer, right from the word go, this match promised to be a five setter and watching for close to 5 hours is worth every second. Federer was not all that great I would say in this final, he was pretty shaky, but Andy Roddick was solid like a rock, during the epic 14-16 setter, Andy was spitting lava during the initial stages, poor guy was waiting for a break point, but that never came. I am stunned to see the stamina levels of this top class professionals, it is not an easy joke to server at 135 MPH for a continuous 5 hours and these folks did that with ease... I was skeptic after the first set if this game would last for a five setter, but Roger came back strongly and he was even more stronger to get the third set to make it 2-1, but Andy charged himself and came back with a stunning performance of 6-3 for the fourth set and stayed on for the title. Roger's fore-hand's collaps

Our Country's Devils ...

This article is mainly targeted a particular person and a particular community of this county and I am not afraid to put my views blunt on this post. I am an equally responsible citizen of this country and I will be happy if my post changes the mind of few responsible citizens like me and that would do for me... Varun Gandhi: If there could be one shameless soul that still exists in Gandhi's family it would be Varun Gandhi. He is one idiotic politician India has ever seen, yeah I could hear a chorus screaming "All politicians in India are idiots", but this guy is a distilled idiot. Look at his face ? He looks like a white rat living inside drainage for years. Entire nation knows the venom he spewed over the harmony of this scared country, that fcuker tried to divide the citizens of this country in the name of religion which is such a damaging thing to our country. I was fuming when the politicians claimed that video of Varun to have been doctored, but luckily the court ru

Gay Ho!! Gay Ho!!

This is such a sensitive topic to debate but blogs are there to express your views in the way we want rite ? So here is my view on this latest talk of the country "Homosexuality is not a Crime". To be frank, I too never termed that under the category "Crime", I was putting it under the category "Shame". India being a country with true values mixed with tradition and culture, homosexuality is not acceptable, why do you think the British laid this rule in our country 149 years back when they ruled INDIA ? They valued our culture and our style of living ? In their country they do not have a chance to correct that shame as the new term "gay" was already in practice in their country ages ago... I again don’t pin this sect of people who claim to have physical pleasures with the same sex, though it is one of the primary motives. So what charm they get when they claim themselves as GAY ? That too in a society where majority of folks are still wanting to
