5 point something

chetan bhagat bookileengo..prithzoda tag...
5 points which u dnt know abt me....therinju enna agaporathu...paisa prayojanam ilaatha matter...anyway..one more tag...so here we go...

En romba naal aasai got fullfilled yesterday...office mudichi veetuku porachay LANDMARK poi book vaanganumngarathu oru kutti alpa aasai...and that book happened to be Parthiban's KIRUKALGAL ngarathu...death by chocolate icecreamla extra chocolate poata epect..mukkavaasi kadailaye padichiten...i like parthibans style of writing...but konjam over dosea he over does the gd stuff..thegatidithu...sila samayam..konjam tone down paniruntha betternungara alavukku overa twist vachi ezhuharar...still relished it..and enjoyed it....now to the tag...

1 Me mad abt books...especially comics....soru thanni illama book padipen..i sorely miss my school exam vacations..main reason appo thaan engamma enna library pakkamay viduvaanga..rajeswari library was a mini temple for me..angapoi..book borrow panni street poora padichitu turning varathukula mudichiduven...if i find tht book good enuf...will take it home and read and re read a dozen times till i can remember every single color in the book...was crazy over lion comics and rani comics...enga relativelam "inum kuda kattam poatta comics padikirayanu" kindal panuvanga..i simply
loved those characters...thuppariyum tiger henry, irumbukkai mayavi (all time fav), iron robot archie (intha seriesla archiekku oru archienu oru episode varum..there will be one bad robot fighting with the gud one...LOVELY..ipo kidachalum padika ready)..lion comics had an amazing number of wonderful characters..adhula...Ratha padalamnu oru series varum...WOW...i was never able to read the full sequence but chanceless suspense...SPY drama..indha mathriyum Tamizhla vanthirukaanu surprise aaiduveenga..if u get a chance..go for it...i assure u, u will love it..

2) more on books..mythologies...i dnt remember how i got introduced to these....greek,roman,egyptian and namma indian myths kaila kadicha ella storiesum mug adichi vachirunthen..especially amar chitra katha,panchathanthram and jataka stories..by hearta theriyum...history was my fav subject..classla miss nadatharapo thoongirven..but i used to read the chapters well in advance..school term start aagarathuku munaadi book vangina udanay padikarathu tamil and history thaan...bharathiya vidhya bavan written quiz onnu nadathuvanga..they give the material full of stories from dasavathar and other puranams and model question paperlam irukum...enga gang used to conduct quiz with those question papers..infact idhu oru religion based thinga yosichathey kidayathu..quiz...adhula jeyikanumngara veri..

3) easy guess based on first two..ipdi book paithiyama iruntha epo vilaadrathu..or interacting with people...uhumm..onnum kidayathu...veetuku yarchum vantha they wud find me reading something..current cut aagarapo candle ethi vachi padikara alavuku verithanam...if my parents take me out somewhere i wud rummage thru their bookshelf and settle with any printed material available..no one complained and corrected me..and end result..i grew upto to like the loneliness this habit brought along with it...i became more of a theory man than practical...basketball kandupidichathu yaru..adula yaru pisthu..entha team neraya times champs...idellam soliduven...but cant put a single basket :( ipo konja konjama peeling off this cocoon of useless info and trying to spread my wings...Tolstoy 40 vayasula cycle oata kathukitaraam...namakku company irukudoi :)

4) once i feel i can win something..i giveup on it...ithu specific to me or generala elarumay ipdithaananu therila..killer instinctngaratha vida...i get bored with the lack of challengenu solven...even while playing shuttle..i always try to go for the most obtuse and acute of angles...service poata ace thaan podanum..return vara mathiri podrathu servicelaye kanakillangara policy..and jeyicha..it should be absolute and crushing...oru point opponent edutha kooda...did something wrong to loose itnu thaan thonum...

5) every individual is inherently complex to understand...simplea irukara oray vishayam kadavul thaan..aana considering the complexity of being god..idhu oru semmayana paradox...same with me...i go by Sigmund Freud..id (childish) ego (mature) superego (mutrum thurantha nilai)..indianised version (from which freud suttufied his theory i doubt) would be rajas tamas and satwa ...idhaye naan..deiva gunam arakka gunam and manitha gunamnu translate panna...i am more human i guess... :)

Saga padichuten... Intha tag padi paartha neenga north pole naan south pole... Namakkum book'um romba thooram... I lately feel that I should have the habit of reading like lot of other people... I was all time vilayaatu paiyan... I used to like to draw, paint and crafts other than playing but never read... I used to read comics... tinkle, chandamama, amar chitra katha, archies, astrix and I still read only comics like C & H and Dilbert... Wish I had the reading side of me... So I guess ikkaraiku akkarai pachai in both our case :D

//arthur conan doyle azhaga solli irupaar....holmes says he doesn't keep track of any unwated information so that he can use that space to store what's vital to him.//

Hey Gils! That's rally well done! Didnt know u were such a book worm. I am one too, but not as much as u are. Yeannoda level is slightly different.

I take books with me when i travel in car, appa rear light poodatha nu sonnadhuunaala, i used to take a torch wid me! Adha thavira, sapdum bhoodu and washroom visits moodhu.. everytime book in hand. :) books are really addictive in a way. They make u feel as though u have company n you could go on for days all by urself and that book!

Comics - me loves archie comics.. used to read tinkle.. now am into phd comics :)

Good that you have started reading... yennaku innum kashtam than... I have been shrugging off with Atlas shrugged for the past 1 year :) Its like I start reading then in between I get distracted by some movie or some music album or sport or oor suthal... so I stop reading... again after many months I start again.... intha maathiriye panni panni I have read the starting 100 pages of Atlas shrugged atleast 8-9 times :D
Hey! How could I miss Tin-tin... varam varam week magazine 'la vara one page tin tin kaagave thedi poi padipen... :)
I too can count easily the number of books I have read... Mangalore appadinu oru cook gramam'ku pona appo read 3 Jeffery Archer's books :) Friends kidaicha appuram antha pazhakamum gone :)

Harish said…
Lots in common between us.
I too grew on Amar Chitra Katha, Tinkle, chandamaama. Gujarat la irundadaala I read hindi comics :-)
I too loved History (Geography suttupottalum varaadu). And yes....I lovvvveee reading books. Inda candle light matter sonnengale...ade goshti daan naanum. Ippo daan my pace has become worse. I hardly read one book in 2 weeks. India la irukache every week one book speed.
Arunkumar said…
that was truly well done gils. gr8 to know someone who is a book worm simply because i am not like that.

i used to read ambulimama,tintin etc in my schooldays, rajeshkumar thrillers in collegedays but i dint have the passion in me to continue reading books. still unable to figure out why :P

@kk
saga, never thought i will find someone in blogsville with this much otrumai :)
when i read ur comment, i thought 'man,this is what i also wanted to say' :)

past 5 yrs i have been trying my level best to get to this reading habit but damn,i hate to say i couldnt develop this little habit. still trying though, even today i went to library and got 'angels n demons' !!! lets c

and KK, its ur luv affair with AS, for me its DV.code and 'fist of God' which my friend referred.
maasakanakkula padikka try pannitu thaan irukken.. will read few pages, when i get back to it,it wud have been months++ and i will haev to start from Page1 !!!

the only thing i have read completely till date is coincidentally the title of this post "5 point someone" and guess what, the biggest motivation was the size of the book :)
