Heal the world-Michael jackson

There’s A Place In Your Heart
And I Know That It Is Love
And This Place Could Be Much
Brighter Than Tomorrow
And If You Really Try
You’ll Find There’s No Need To Cry
In This Place You’ll Feel
There’s No Hurt Or Sorrow

There Are Ways To Get There
If You Care Enough For The Living
Make A Little Space
Make A Better Place...

Heal The World
Make It A Better Place
For You And For Me
And The Entire Human Race
There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough For The Living
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me

If You Want To Know Why
There’s A Love That Cannot Lie
Love Is Strong
It Only Cares For Joyful Giving
If We Try We Shall See
In This Bliss We Cannot Feel
Fear Or Dread
We Stop Existing And Start Living

Then It Feels That Always
Love’s Enough For Us Growing
So Make A Better World
Make A Better World...

Heal The World
Make It A Better Place
For You And For Me
And The Entire Human Race
There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough For The Living
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me

And The Dream We Were Conceived In
Will Reveal A Joyful Face
And The World We Once Believed In
Will Shine Again In Grace
Then Why Do We Keep
Strangling Life
Wound This Earth
Crucify Its Soul
Though It’s Plain To See
This World Is Heavenly
Be God’s Glow

We Could Fly So High
Let Our Spirits Never Die
In My Heart
I Feel You Are All My Brothers
Create A World With No Fear
Together We’ll Cry Happy Tears
See The Nations Turn Their Swords Into Plowshares

We Could Really Get There
If You Cared Enough
For The Living
Make A Little Space
To Make A Better Place...

Heal The World
Make It A Better Place
For You And For Me
And The Entire Human Race
There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough
For The Living
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me

Heal The World
Make It A Better Place
For You And For Me
And The Entire Human Race
There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough
For The Living
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me

Heal The World
Make It A Better Place
For You And For Me
And The Entire Human Race
There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough
For The Living
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me

There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough
For The Living
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me

There Are People Dying
If You Care Enough
For The Living
Make A Better Place
For You And For Me

You And For Me

08 kazhithalum 09 puguthalum

Usuala year end na oru thrill irukum..January is always a festive month with lots of leave and year beginningarathala oru happy atmosphere will be hanging for first few weeks. Usually its the hangover of the previous year and the happy imprints it leaves. Aana 2008 aadirukara gora thandavathuku jenmathukum maraka mudiatha oru year aadichi. If at all i have a remote like Adam sandler in click 2008 fulla fwd paniruven or infact deletey paniduven. It has been the worst of worse years not just for me but also many of my friends, both personally and professionally. Alavay ida mudiatha loss.. aduthaduthu vantha prachanaigallnu ithuku mela kodumaiaya oru year iruka mudiathunungara alavuku tsunamia thaakidichi. Ivlo eagera oru year enda naan expect panathay kedaiathu.

2009 arambamay neria hopesoda arambikuthu. Guess not just for me. Entire world is reeling under the dreaded 'R' word. Crude oil which scaled cruel heights true to its name has now fallen bringing down with it may an oil bond and millionaires. Kodumai ennana today's news claim water to be costlier than oil. Quantum of Solace movie mathiri future aidumo?? As the year ends, oru pakkam Indiavum Pakistanum mallukatitu nikaranga. Inoru pakkam Americala first black president in waiting. Oru pakkam vishy anandum, boxersum Indian sportsa thalai nimira seiaranga. Inoru pakkam oru potential world champion (saina nehwal)ku passport prachanai panranga sports authorities. oru pakkam I.T sector adi mela adi vangirturku. Inoru pakkam non IT fields are gaining popularity. Engineering padicha makkal avanga linesla velai thedrathula aarvam adigam kaata arambichrukanga. 21Kla armbicha sharemarket paramapadha paambu kothi padupaathalathula vizhunthu ipo than chinna chinna yeni pudichi pathaairathai muthamida vanthiruku.

2008: Oru positveum ilatha varushathula learnings egapatathu irunthichi. Enna pathi enakay teriatha sila vishyangal, edirparatha santhipugal, pudu vidhamana manithargal, athu varai kathaigalla matumay irunthatha nencha characters silar kan munaala pathathu, unamaiyana nanbargal/uravinargal yarunu adayalam kandupudichathu, Melotama pakama benefit of doubt kudutha karanthinala enaku pudusa kedaicha friends.. ipdi sila pala nigazhvgal.

2009: Peria peria resolutions ekkachakka demands ipdi edhuvumay ila intha year kitenthu. Just let it be better than 2008 and may it deliver all the hopes hinging on it.

F.R.I.E.N.D.S again :)

Romba naal pending..releasing episode 3 @ gils :D

"For an ex-boxer you hardly threw a punch" Monica goes into her room muttering to herself followed by Chandler with a black eye.
"ex-Boxer?? and you?? Dude..whom are you kidding?" queries Joey.
Ross, grinning from ear to ear."Wearing one, doesnt make you one.. buddy"
"Ohh..wait..in ur previous profession were u involved in arranging boxes?" asks Phoebe unable to control the laughter in her voice.
"Seriously chandler...boxing and you?? " asks Rachel
"Laugh all you want...I love to play games on xbox playstation. During our pre engagement period i had told Monica that i am an x-boxer. Evidently she misunderstood."
Amidst peals of laughter..Joey asks "then how the black eye"
"Well..she sorta challenged me for a duel and before i could say no .." he points to his swollen eye.
"Ross..i should admit..your sister is one damn gud hooker" quips Joey.
Ross begins to laugh then realises the pun and lunges at him.

The door bell rings at that time..A cute looking Pizza delivery gal stands provocatingly dressed and in a cooing tone calls "US Pizza" .
"mine mine mine mine mine mine..." rushes chandler to the door...stops before opening the door..catches his breath due to head rush...puts on his famous smile and then realises that Monica is staring at him and makes way for Joey.
"Heyyy...how you doing"
The pizza delivery gal goes crimson in color..gives him the box and leaves blushingly.
"Works all the time.."
"May be you should patent that phrase" suggests Phoebe
"Or even better you should publish a paper on how to flirt with gals." says Ross
"ha..only dorks and nerds publish papers" replies Joey,realises that Ross does that for his living and says " apart from you of course".
Chandler who was checking the bill bursts out laughing..
"joey...that pizza delivery lady has written ur name as joey pepporini in the bill"
"No wonder..considering that he calls it "pasta"day after friday..they might soon add his name in the menu itself..joey macaroni.."
"huh..dont cast ur evil eyes on my healthy apetite"
"joey..eating 2 family pizzas is not even in the same pincode as healthy" comments rachel.
"cmonn...i am single..so me is my famliy..hence i am helping myself a slice or two.."
"maybe joe..u shd join a gym and convert that family pack you are carrying in your tummy into a six pack" advises Ross.
"u know what Ross..thats a great idea. Why dont you enroll with me"
"ah-huh..i am uber fit maan...i run 3 blocks a day thrice and do weights every alternate. You know back in univ. they call me "the BICEPtinial man"..
"did you hear it right Ross...considering that you study Dinosaurs..the term bicentinnial applies more to you than Robin williams" quips phoebe.
"i have had enough with you kids..gotta lecture early tommorow...so its me calling it a day..bye folks.." rushes Ross.
"Strange..its ten past 11 into night and he calls it a day!!" wonders chandler
"hey chandler..how come you are up so late. Don't you have office tommorow" enquires Rachel.
"well..he did..but his boss found him responsible..so he got chucked out" replies Monica.
"How can one get fired for being responsible??" questions joey
"Well..he was found responsible for everything which went wrong" clarifies Monica.
Chandler buries deep into the sofa.

நினைவோ ஒரு பறவை

விருமாண்டி பட வசனம் - "மன்னிக்கரவன் மனுசன்..மன்னிப்பு கேக்கரவன் பெரிய மனுசன்". நண்பர்களுக்குள்ள மன்னிப்பு மரியாதை இதெல்லாம் பாக்கறது too much இல்ல twenty much. ஆனாலும் சில சமயம் நாம ரொம்ப எதிர்ப்பார்க்கர சமயத்துல அவங்க சொதப்பரப்போ கோவம் வருது. இது கூட சொல்லித்தான் தெரியனுமானு ஒரு பக்கமும் இதெல்லாம் வீண் formalitynu இன்னொரு பக்கமுமாக பிரச்சனை தீர்வில்லாம முடிவில பேச்சுவார்த்தை கூட இல்லாம போயிடுது. என் ஈகோ எனக்கு பெருசு. உன் ஈகோ உனக்கு பெருசுனு நட்புல விரிசல் பெரிசாகி ரொம்ப நெருங்கிய மக்களாக இருந்தாலும் பிரிஞ்சுடராங்க. நீங்க கேக்கலாம். நட்புனு சொல்லிட்டு ஈகோ பாக்கரது தப்பில்லயானு. நண்பர்கள் இல்லாத மக்கள் கூட உண்டு ஆன ஈகோ இலாத ஆளே இல்லனு தான் சொல்வேன். ஒரு ஸ்டேஜுக்கு மேல சில பேர் கிட்ட சில எதிர்ப்பார்ப்புகள் தானா வளர ஆரம்பிக்குது. Taken for granted மாதிரி. No written agreement or something. ஆனா எதிர்பார்ப்பு கண்டிப்பா இருக்கும். ஒரு வேள இந்த மாதிரி expectations தான் காரணமானு தெரியலை. பிரிவுனு ஒன்னு வரச்சேதான் உறவுகளோட அருமை, பெருமையெல்லாம் தெரியுது. அது வரைக்கும் கோவத்துல, அவங்க செய்யாததை நினைக்கிர மனசு, நாள் ஆக ஆக எதுக்காக கோவப்பட்டோம்கர காரணம் மறந்து செய்ததை நினைத்து பாக்குது. என்ன பொறுத்த வரை எந்த கோவமும் goes thru 4 stages.
முதல்ல அவன் தான் தப்பு,
அடுத்து அவன மாதிரி ஒரு நன்றி இல்லாதவன் இருக்கவே மாட்டான் (குறிப்பா இந்த டைம்ல அவங்கள பத்தி குறை சொல்லாம இருக்கவே மாட்டாங்க)
அடுத்து avoidance. அவங்க இருக்கற திசையே பாக்காம அவாய்ட் பன்றது
ஒரு பெரீய்ய்ய்ய்ய gap. இந்த timela கோவபட்டதோட காரணம் கொஞ்சம் கொஞ்சமா மறந்திரும்.
கடைசியா திரும்ப எற்படர எதிர்பாராத சந்திப்பு..முதல்ல இருந்த நட்போட வெளிப்பாடு. உடைந்து போன கண்ணாடினாலும் பிம்பம் இருக்க தானே செய்யும். பழய நினைவுகள அசை போட்டு மன்னிப்பு கேட்க மனம் நாணி அமைதியாக போவோர் சிலர். ஒன்னும் இல்லாத விஷயத்துக்காக இத்தனை நாள் பேசாம இருந்துட்டோமேனு மனம் வருந்தி யார் தப்பு யார் சரின்னு பாக்காம முதல் அடியாக "என்ன மன்னிச்சிரு"னு மனசார கேக்கரவங்க சிலர்.விருமாண்டி பட வசனம் தான் திரும்பவும் நினைவுக்கு வருது - "மன்னிக்கரவன் மனுசன்..மன்னிப்பு கேக்கரவன் பெரிய மனுசன்".

p.s:
en thideernu ipdi oru seriousana mokkainu thinkaravangaluku. Ithula sonna ella stagesum naan realise panen intha varusham. I lost 2 of my dearest friends early this year and got them back today. Eppoda mudiya poguthunu eagera wait panitrukara intha kanraviyaana yearoda only bright spot. I got my friends back :) and ofcourse.. sorry ketathu naan thaan :)

Obvious meaning containeray emptya irukarapo epdi karandila varum..athuvum emptya thaana irukum apdingara mathiri vanthalum. Athuku oru interesting kathai irukaam. Oru oorula, oru peria panakaaarar.

Romba kaalama avangaluku kuzhandhai bagiyam ilama irnuthichaam. Oru samayam avanga veetuku sapda vantha swamigal oruthar sonaram. Murugara vendikitu sashti veratham irunga. Puthira bagyam undaagumnu. Athey pola kantha sashti veratham irunthangalam. Kuzhandhai perum adainthaangalam. Athunala "Sashtiyil (viratham) irunthaal agappaiyil (kuzhandhai) varum" apdinu uruvaacham vaakiyam.

Lucky : How deep is your love - concluded

12:29:26

You don't worry... I shan't do anything like that if you are uncomfortable..
Thanks a million Harini.. you know how embarassing it can be...
So Aunty knows you huh ?

Ya.. I've been home a couple of times...

Mahesh took you home ?

Ya... why do you ask ?
aise hi...and is your brother married ?Do you have any other sisters ?

Forget Shweta... You tell us where and when did you meet Mahesh first ?
Yeah akka.. Tell us no...

I hope you don't think we are intruding...
No No.. though I am just a little curious about why I am suddenly being questioned...

Nothing to be afraid of.. We are just two curious cats...

Mahesh and I... we met sometime in October just before I went abroad..I used to work in a software firm at that time......I think it was at PVR that we first met..You know that place right ? At The Forum on Hosur Road..

Yeah.. I know....and then how did you become friends ?

He was there with Divya and my best buddy Shiv.. You might be knowing them..
Divya is Mahesh's classmate...
Shiv...Oh he was Harini Akka's friend too in college..
Really ? I did not know that...
we were just in same college..nothing more than that..u tell me ur story...
Nothing...there is no story.. so we got introduced there...and we've been friends since then...

C'mon, there is more to this... We are all part of the same family now..You can tell us...We'll keep your secrets...
Harini, plssssssssss...

Nee summa irudi Shweta......

There are no secrets at all. Neway can I ask some qustions now ?
Of course...but just two questions and we will tell you...

This Mahesh... Was he always a woman's man ? See, he's just been here for 15 mts and he is already flirting with that girl.. Yaar aval ?

Oh... She is Archana...Brinda manni's neighbour's daughter...Avalukku eppovume oru kannu Mahesh mela..
Archana akka is a University basketball player...See how tall she is.. Mahesh anna and she talk a lot about sports...

Is that all you had to ask ?

You haven't answered my question..

See Priya..Mahesh has a lot of women friends but none of them are close.. I mean, its all platonic relationships...Wait....Are you talking of Supriya and Kavya ?
Yes. So you know everyone in Mahesh's life huh ?

You can say that...

Then how come you didn't know about me ?

did u beleive that we dint know u... ?

No undue respect pls...

I don't think you have any competition...Mahesh has never taken any of those women home...
Who was talking about competition ?

I just thought you sounded a trifle insecure.

You are too much Harini. OK..One more question ? I assume you won't discuss any of this with Mahesh...

Of course not... Our lips are sealed

Why does your brother always watch movies from 2 to 6 ? Why this fetish for matinees ? Why does he hate staying out after 6 pm ?

Mahesh hates crowds

....so ?

Priya.. what Shwets means is that Mahesh is not the kinda guy who will go out on a date when the streets are crowded so that he can flaunt his gal or something..He likes his space.. he values his privacy...Besides his point is that since we have come out anyway to watch the movie, how should show timings matter ?...I know thats crazy but thats him..

...but i like my afternoon siesta...party hard till late night...

all the more reason why he prefers matinees coz he feels people waste too much time over the weekends doing nothing...

And what does he do later in the evening ?

Sunday evenings are for football in the TV or snooker at John Uncle's house and Saturday mornings are for cricket..Anna is the fiercely sporty kind...

I know...so idhu dhaan kadhaya?
You speak good Tamil for a Kannadiga..
No No.. We are Thamizh and we speak thamizh at home... basically from Tanjavur...just settled here in Bangalore..
OK
So how long have you been going steady ?
No No.. I am not his girlfriend.. We are just good pals...
Ha Ha Ha
Nejama pa...
Ha Ha Ha
Harini, sirikaadha...Mahesh is coming..

Hey guys. sorry Pri but I got held up... and there's more bad news.. Periappa says no leaving without lunch..Why are giggling, Ajit ?

Onnum illa anna..
hey Harini, I can see that mischiveous gleam in your face.. Been upto your usual tricks ?
i swear..nothing.. You ask your girlfriend, naan onnume pannala...
Lets have lunch... we need to leave...

13:17:13

Why are you so silent ?
Nothing
C'mon, you can tell me. Did my cousins say something wrong ?
Not at all. On the contrary, they were great fun...
Yeah.. though I would not trust that Harini one bit....she is a real devil...
Hmmm
Did you get to meet any of my relatives ?
No
Amma told me she saw you...I am sorry..
Its OK
Aren't we having a very monotonous conversation ?
Yes
Did not know it was the day of monosyllables today..
Sorry...All your cousins think I am your girlfirend...
Is it ?
Thats not much of a reply...
So what do you think ?
I don't think I was ever asked...
Yeh sub poochna padtha hai kya ?
Of course.. why do you have to take everything for granted ?
OK OK.. I adore you...
Is that supposed to be comprehended as "You are my girlfriend"
You should have been a lawyer...
Hmmm..
lets go to your house now..u promised to sit n watch moves with me..
i just wanna sit n relax watching moviefor sumtime.
sure..lady..as u say!

13:22:55

The food was great, wasn't it ?
Awesome it was... the gulab jamun though could have have been more sweeter...
Don't worry... we won't let it happen at our wedding....
Mahesh, you are impossible....
Why ? What is it now ?
Why do you keep doing it all the time ?
Now what......
Wait...let me put it this way...did you just ask me to marry you ?
If you want to put it that way... but I thought you already knew...

I didn't.. In fact, look at it this way... I just heard that you were serious about our realtionship a minute back...
The girlfriend thing ?
Aur kya.. and now you talk about marriage....

I didn't know you were so slow in taking hints..I thought we had passed that stage a long time back...

Women don't know.. they need to be told Mahesh.............

Fine

.......and are there any other suprises in store for me today ?

Now that you mention, I do have a ring in my jeans which I proposed to use later in the evening...

omigawddd.....

...but since we are already there, maybe I should do it now...

No No No.. DON'T....

No what ?

Don't propose..

But why ? You don't like me...

I know you are not going to like this... but hear me out.. I think we are rushing too quickly here.. Waittt.. Its not me.. I know I like u..ur company..u take care of me and i feel good with u and I haven't wanted anything more than this... But I think I don't deserve you...You are way too nice...There are sides to me you haven't seen....I want you to think this through a little more carefully....

Can I make a point here ? Will you give me a little more credit ? Will you please let me decide what I want ?

Don't get angry Mahesh...Can you pls do this for both of us... Can you wait for some more time ? I want you to be crystal clear before you take this huge step..

I am clear even now..
Please....
Fine...
You ok ?
Hmmm
Look at me baba...
Am driving...
Don't sulk baba..
I am not..
If you're not feeling like it, we can ditch the movie..
No...
lets go..let me check wats playing..
btw which movie are we seeing ?
%$#@
Why are you swearing ?
Nothing..
Which movie are they playing????tell me na..

நம்பிக்கை

பிறத்தலும் இறத்தலும்
உறங்கலும் விழித்தலும்
போமேயாம் என்ற
உண்மையை உணர்ந்தால்
உலகில் ஒரு கவலையும் இல்லை

கவலை என்பது இல்லாமல்
இருக்குமாயின்
கண்ணீர் சுரப்பிகளை
கடவுள் படைத்திருக்கமாட்டார்
சுரக்கும் கண்ணீர்
சோகத்தினாலா சுகத்தினாலா
என்பதை முடிவு செய்வது
கண்களின் பொறுப்பன்று
கடவுளின் செயலுமன்று
இரு கை கொண்டொராயுனும்
அல்லாராயினும்
முக்கிய"கை"யான
நம்பிக்கை உடயோரெனின்
வேரெதும் இல்லாரயினுமவர்
எல்லாம் உடையோரே

உடைவதில்
உருப்பெருவது சிலை
உடைந்து போன கல்லை
எண்ணி அது கலங்குவதில்லை
கால உளி செதுக்கி
காட்சி மாறும் கற்கள் நாம்.
தொலைந்து போன கல்லா
இல்லை உருமாறிய சிலையா
என்பது
நம் மனநிலையில்லுள்ளது
தெய்வம் என்றால் அது தெய்வம்
வெறும் சிலை என்றால் கற்சிலை தான்.

சுக்குமி...ளகுதி...ப்பிலியும் அத்திரிபாச்சாவும்

எங்கம்மா, நான் school homeworka எழுதற அழக பார்த்து சொன்ன கதை இது :)

ஒரு ஊருல ஒரு அவசர குடுக்கை இருந்தானாம். எல்லா விஷயத்திலையும் அவசரம். குடுகுடுனு செஞ்சு முடிச்சிடனும்னு வேகவேகமா வேலைய செய்வானாம்..தப்பும் தவறுமா. இப்படித்தான் ஒரு தடவ அவன் அம்மா அவன் கிட்ட, மளிகை சாமான் லிஸ்ட் எழுதித்தரேன் வாங்கிகிட்டு வான்னு சொன்னாங்க. அதுக்கு அவன்,நீ எழுத லேட் ஆகும். அதுனால நானே எழுதிக்கரேன்,நீ சொல்ல மட்டும் சொல்லுனு சொல்லிகிட்டு, கடகடனு எழுத ஆரம்பிச்சானாம்.
லிஸ்ட் ரெடி ஆனதும் ஓட்டமா ஒடி போய் கடைல குடுத்திருக்கான். கடைக்காரன் படிச்சு பாத்துட்டு,ஒன்னும் புரியலன்னு, திருப்பிக்குடுத்துட்டானாம். அப்பிடி என்னதான் எழுதிருக்கான் லிஸ்டுலன்னு பாத்தா

சுக்குமி,ளகுதி,ப்பிலி
அவங்க அம்மா சொன்னது சுக்கு 100GM,மிளகு 100GM,திப்பிலி 100GM. அவசரத்துல சேர்த்து எழுதிட்டுப்போனதுனால இம்புட்டு குழப்பம். என் handwriting எவ்வளவு மோசம்னு இதுலேந்தே தெரிஞ்சிருக்கும் :)

ஞாபக மறதிக்கு ஒரு கதை சொல்லுவாங்க :)

புதுசா கல்யாணமான ஒருத்தன், ஒரு நாள், பட்டு வேட்டி, பட்டு சட்டை போட்டுகிட்டு, அவன் friend வீட்டுக்கு போனானாம். அங்க அவனுக்கு சாப்பிட கொழுக்கட்டை தந்தாங்களாம். first firsta அப்பொ தான் கொழுக்கட்டைய கண்ணால பார்த்த நம்ம ஹீரோ, இது பேர் என்னனு கேட்டு தெரிஞ்சுக்கிட்டு, வீட்டுல போய் wife கிட்ட செய்ய சொல்லலாம்னு, பேர் மறந்திரக்கூடாதேன்னு, வர வழி பூரா "கொழுக்கட்டை" "கொழுக்கட்டை"னு சொல்லிக்கிட்டே வந்தானாம். அவன் நேரம். அப்போ மழை கொட்ட ஆரம்பிச்சிடிச்சி. ஓரமா ஒதுங்கி நின்னாலும், "கொழுக்கட்டை" ஜபத்தை நிறுத்தலை. கொஞ்ச நேரத்துலலாம் மழை விட, வழியெல்லாம் ஒரே சேறு. புது வேட்டி அழுக்காகிடப்போகுதேன்னு, "அத்திரிபாச்சா"னு சொல்லிக்கிட்டே அந்த சேறு தாண்டி வீடு வந்து சேர்ந்த நம்ம ஹீரோ, புது பொண்டாட்டிகிட்ட ஆசையா, எனக்கு என் friend வீட்டுல சாப்பிட தந்த "அத்திரிபாச்சா" disha செஞ்சி தா னு சொல்லி அடம் பிடிக்க, அந்த மாதிரி ஒன்னுமே இல்லைனு wife சொல்ல, சண்டை starts. பஞ்சாயத்து கூடிச்சி. "கொழுக்கட்டை" "அத்திரிபாச்சா" ஆன கதை வெளிச்சத்துக்கு வந்துச்சி :))

Movers n Shakers - concluded

This title should originally be given to the BSE- whose recent dakshinayanan move has shook the nation and has taken many a life.
I confess, me dont've no idea of what stock market is and how BULLs defy gravity and end up licking the boots of BEARs. To me its all Bull and too much to bear. But i always find it interesting to watch the numbers add up and when it reached 21k early this year, everyone became an expert and shares n stock became talk of the day. parama padham mathiri irukara intha velatuku nayayapadi snakes n laddersa than examplea use panirukanum..engenthu kaala maadum karadiyum vanthuchinu therila. Etho..ipo improve agitu varuthunu solranga. Nalla iruntha seri.

Final personality on my "MnS" (;) list is none other than the only World Champion from India. Vishvanathan anand. My first sports hero. Chess velada kathukarathuku munalenthay Anand pathi kelvi patruken. Amazing person. One billion peoploda oray representative at a world level. A true champion. Chess playersna opponentsa hypnotise paniduvanga athu ithunu egapatta myth iruntha timela sirichi sirichay he won not jus the game but millions of hearts across the world. I love the speed with which he plays. And this guy has amazing memory power. Oru interviewla, the interviewer showed him 3 moves from 3 different games, each several decades apart. He picked the games and the players name correctly for each of them. WOW. Sariayana mandai. To quote my title again, he is the original mover and shaker. His moves on the board shook his opponents, which I am sure Kramnik would vouch for. A truly inspiring sports personality who has single handedly inspirted so many people to take up the game of chess.

P.S:

Intha seriesa ithoda stopikaren. Adutha postlenthu usual mokkais thodarum :)

Trivia :)

Two reasons caused a break in the movers n shakers series :)

First one




















To quote like Chandler (Mathew Perry) from F.R.I.E.N.D.S

"Kumble is Humble with a K"
In the era of low cost airlines, true to his name, JUMBO retires from cricket.
The indian scorecard will have a HUGE gap in the bowling section without this name. Ever since i've been following cricket, there are few names like Sachin, Dravid, Kumble...all of which sound as synonymous as bat, ball and wicket. It feels really sad to see them moving out, which they have to and this being the right time as well. ShahRukh once commented about a newcomer on his debut movie- "May your career go through the 4 stages of being a superstar. First people will ask "who is this guy" next they will ask " I want only this guy" thirdly they will ask "get me someone who looks like this guy" and finally they will ask "for a younger version of this guy". Guess it will apply to the bowling superstar as well. From an almost anonymous entry (i still remember the series where i couldnt make out between kambli and kumble :) ) he has become a role model and a true pathbreaking phenomenon. Gud luck Kumbles..hope to see u soon.

P.S:
oru curious thought. Actually this post was meant to publish this one, but mr.kumble announced his retirement in an unannounced manner :) Well here it is.

OBAMA almost sounds like OSAMA and BINLADEN abbreviates to BIDEN, his running mate!!!
Paranoid gils or interesting trivia??!! ;))

Movers n Shakers - 2

This post is about a bunch of people under the misguided influence of a till-recently-nonentity of a person. Actually the title, fits them to a T. They moved and shoved and shook things and people alike, around them, to catapult into lime light. The MNS. Phonetically the name of their group is more accurate in Tamil where it reads "YEMANS".

For those who werent born under the British rule, feel no worries. Except for the colour of the skin, the practices followed 2 centuries back still holds good and lo behold..we are still in the days of the Raj!! Even a child will know how fragile the is the thread called unity in diversity. You dont need a hacksaw to tore it to shreds when mere words harshly spelt can mean doom. If you thought so, well the former is the way in which the MN(ui)S(ance) have been dealing with the issue of mumbaikars vs non-mumbaikars.

Indian history has seen the term immigrants being etched with blood and gore ever since it saw independence. But I think for the first time natives are being termed as immigrants. The worst part is the attitude of the local government, with obviously vested interests akin to the policy of appeasement by the Allies during WWII. History has always been a funny subject. People never bother to learn from the mistakes commited by others and always end up reinventing the "wrong" wheel.

Its really sad to read about the plight of our fellow Indians and the kind of hardships they undergo in phoren land just for the sake of money. Its unbelievably pathetic to imagine a much worse plight in their own land. Infact that raises the most disturbing question of all times, How Indian are we? Take the case of states fighting over water, border and "illegal" immigrants already multi divided by language. For a person totally strange to India, he might think these are individual countries. Now where is the question of unity with all these infighting??!! Its becoming a farce nowadays with the secessionists holding fort everywhere.

No one can suggest a 10 point programme and get this all rectified in a day's time. But for starters let there be a limit on the number of political parties. I am not sure how this can be implemented. May be one can take a stat of how a so called national/regional party has polled votes in past 20 years or say ten elections and can have a ceiling on the minimal percentage of votes they should have secured to retain their outfit. We hardly vote. Bitter fact. Even with such small percentage of people voting, if a party hardly gets any vote year after year and election after election, isnt it proof enough that the people are rejecting it. There should be even tighter restriction on so called "Fiery" speeches and news channels who bray non stop on their "exclusives" about these speeches should get their licenses revoked. May be we can get a new clause added to consumer act in relation with the news channels. If its misleading or found untrue, the channels should be banned for fanning voilence.

Its really moving and one cant help shaking with sadness on seeing the plight of daily bread winners, who throng cities, not for minting millions but just for a decent meal a day. Next time when you go onsite/abroad spaer a moment or two about these people. I think you will understand.

Movers n Shakers - 1

Few people/incidents hogged the limelight this month, which might cast a bigger shadow in the coming times. Some were individual milestones while some.. simply stones thrown by individuals.

Usually when u start something u dedicate the first offering to GOD right..so here we go.

S R T. New branch of GRT jewellery?? Nope. But no less precious than all the gold in that shop put together. Yup..None other than Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar,
for conquering summit 12k and also becoming the highest test run scorer in history. Guess, whatever changes the format undergo from now on, i really doubt whether there would be any other player, who will hold both ODI and test records together, ever, however long their career maybe. Even if such an unimaginable stuff happens, one wonder whether that person will have the serene calmness with which this man has soaked in all the pressure and comments and criticism and more importantly the glory and still manages to walk on his feet. Of all the praises heaped on him, my personal favourite is from the magazine SPORTSTAR. That magazine usually features the most prolific sports personality of that month on their cover page and once it ran just their masthead "SPORTSTAR" with the following statment.
"The only thing to have appeared on our cover more times than Sachin"!!



For a long time when i had to follow overseas matches of indian cricket only through Hindu and Express. Each morning, which i woke up to read the news of Sachin's exploits had such a refreshing start and i used to feel as if the day has began in right earnest. A sachin 100 and Indian victory was the best dose of morale boost to carry the day. Its such a joy to watch this little man come dancing down the track to loft hapless spinners and pacers alike over their head for a six. Such scenes at times remind me of the Gladiators thrown before the lions during Roman times. The carnage, the power and the mesmerising balance which follows were a treat to watch. Agreed there are better hitters in the game. But a six by Sachin is like watching a Lion devour its prey with scalpel. Belligerent beauty at its best.





People might question his form..the labourous ardor with which he went about knocking off the final 1000 runs and might be questioning on when he is going to retire. Well..so is petrol. Ever since it has been discovered, people have been predicting it would dry up in a decades time. Not that they are wrong but the point is, lets enjoy Sachin as he is and as a person who knows himself best and surely he would've scripted his farewell already.

I think, Einstein once said, "God didnt play dice with the universe". Had he been alive now and followed cricket, he would've been sure as to which game god played ;)

WOW!!

This is one song i always listen to..whatever the mood maybe. Its so cute n endearing u wud never want it to end. Nalla sarakadichitu paadra mathiri antha lady padirukanga..but its mesmerising :) very very smooth song.


Title: John Denver - Leaving on a Jet Plane lyrics

Artist: John Denver Lyrics



All my bags are packed I'm ready to go
I'm standin' here outside your door
I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
But the dawn is breakin' it's early morn
The taxi's waitin' he's blowin' his horn
Already I'm so lonesome I could die

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go
Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

There's so many times I've let you down
So many times I've played around
I tell you now, they don't mean a thing
Every place I go, I'll think of you
Every song I sing, I'll sing for you
When I come back, I'll bring your wedding ring

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go
Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

Now the time has come to leave you
One more time let me kiss you
Close your eyes I'll be on my way
Dream about the days to come
When I won't have to leave alone
About the times, I won't have to say

So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go
Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe, I hate to go

Azhagan la vara "sangeetha swarangal". Ethana varusham aanalum..fonela kadala podra makkala paathu first adikara comment :) KB ya iyakunar imayamnu summava solranga. Night samacharla arambichi morning paalkaran vara varaikum cutea picturise panirupanga song.

Nayaganla vara "neeyoru kaadhal sangeetham" and the scene preceeding it. Konjam male chauvinistica irukunu feel agaravangalku..athu oru gangster Don rolengaratha nyabagapaduthinda u can enjoy it. Lovely lyrics awesome acting and excellent music.

Arya..padam poora it oozes with cuteness. Immensly likable songs and laughably funny sequences. "Feel my love" and "Nuvvante" are right on top of my all time fav list.

Bommarilu--athaanga telugu santhosh subramaniam..athula vara "Bommani geesthay" song..antha oru paatukagavay that padam also in this list. Amma paadra lullaby enanu puriatiyum ketukitay thungiduthula kozhandailam..athey pola..enna meaningnu puriati kuda idhama kadhai kekara mathiri irukum intha song. Very smooth and melodious.

Humtumla towards the end vara oru scene. Rani and saif would be discussing about the theoretical possibility of them getting married and saif wud be saying how he would be prioritizing between their kids, her n his dog. Chancelatha scene :) enaku romba pudikum. Also the title song, "Humtum", had it as my hello tune for a long time :)

Azhagaai Irukirai Bayamaai Irukirathu--intha padam vanthatho ponatho kuda neria peruku terinjirukathu nenakren had it not been released quickly in Sun tv :)) "Jo paapa paaavam la" apdinu solitu semma cute n bubblyaana heroine and oru scene semma touchinga irukum. The lead pair would be discussing as to how cruel it is to have the one you love, sitting right next to you, and still unable to express your love. Intha rendu vishayathukaga antha padam rommba pudikum.

Perazhaganla vara oru scene..Surya pesara oru dialogue sequence with Jo in a car. "oru azhagaana ponnu irunthaa" nu..Head fonela ketu parunga :) ketutu solunga :)

Ayutha ezhuthula vara bus scene with Trisha and Sid. Avvvvvvv...so realistic and so simple yet so catchy. Terminus to terminus back to back trip adichikitu..kutti pasangallenthu koodakaranga varikum elar kudavum travel panikitu...the hot gal and cute hero...oblivious to the world.. arattai, with the best song of the movie in the background. To quote another Trisha song "Vera enna venum ulgathilay..intha travel podhum nenjinilay" :))) sila scenelam patha ipdilam naama iruntha epdirukumnu yosika vaikumla..this is definitely one such scene.

P.S: Intha list mudiara mathiri therila :) so ithoda ishtopping. Appalika fresh additions vachu inoru parta posteren.

P.S.S:Ithelam cinemala paathu..rasithu..pullarichi..jollu utu..vaaya polanthikitu kanavu kaanarathoda stop panikarathu nallathu. Alaipayuthay paathu atheye try panni avasthaila maatina makkal neria per i the know. Ithan moolam karuthu kandhasami ena koorikolgiraarna .."Kedaikarathu kedaikama irukathu kedaikama irukarathu kedaikathu" :D varta

Dea(r)th of language - part 1

P.S:Nyayapadi intha posta tamizhla ezhuthirukanum. Vazhakkam pola no porumai. so porutharuluga. seekrama tamizhla adika arambikaren.

Tamizh ini mella sagum. Evlo thadava intha sentencea ketalum each time it does something. Apdi onum panalaina kandipa tamizh teriathavangalavo ila puriathavangalavo thaan irukanum. Aayiram than sonalum thaan pesara thaai mozhi inum konja naalula kaanama poidumngarathu is equivalent to ones parents demise. Rendumay confirma nadanthay agumnu terinjalum nenaikavay oru nimisham patharuthilla.

Back to title. Nejamavay mella sethuruma?? is there anything called death for languages? Engayo padicha news...ulagathula prominenta irukara sila dozen languages thavira micha languageslam seekrama azhinjitu varutham. People blame the rapid advent of technology, as usual. Ana yosichi paatha athulayum oru indirect unmai irukathan seiyuthu.

And moreover, translation is no easy job. Its one of the most difficult job and requires lot more knowledge and command over the language, understanding of the subject and also selfless and service oriented nature, to top it all.

Oru Japeneso Frencho kathundu.. avanga mozhilenthu englishku translate panna kaasu neria kedaikuthaynu, Alliance Franchisekum Indo Japnese chamberukum alaiyo alainu alainju avanga mozhi aana avanna kathukara makkala kandipa kurai sollala.

So konjam star power and charishma iruntha than kathai therum. Athey samayathula youthful story. Antha mathiri role set agara mathiri tamizhla yarumay thonala.

Athey pola thaan intha padam - Rock on.

First..padathoda songs. Oray varthaila solanumna-- AWESOME. Shankar ehsan loy and farhan combo chancela. Each movie in their combo boasts of rocking songs - right from Dil chahtha hai to Rock on. Especially in this movie, songslam semma english feel. Aana athukelam pakkaava suit agara mari hindi lyrics potrukar Javed Akthar. Namma vaali sir mathiri vaarthaila velaadvum seiyarar..vairamuthu mathiriyum ezhutharar.

Climax song matumay oru ten plus min medley of most of the songs. Still immensly enjoyable. Friendsoda vandila long trip adikarachay sathama ketukitu polam :)

Pathu varushama peasatha Farhan thideernu vanthu trouplea join agikaratho climaxla Arjun rampal correcta vanthu guitar vasikaratho thavirthu padathula perusa sothapalnu ethuvum ila. Ana oru simple incidentkaga life ambitiona vitruvangala makkal??

Pidipilama panra velaila enna than success irunthalum athula santhosham irukathungaratha simpla nadichi katirukar Farhan. Kadisila onnu senthu entha competitiona jeichi priayarangalo atheye thirumba jeikaranga. Ambututhen story.

Aana semma cute :)) Purab kohli (KD drummer) chancela. Kedaicha chancea semmathia use panitrukar. Mudi valathutu Anniyan mari vara Farhana vida formalsla share brokera vara Farhan gethhu. Model kanakka irukar. But topperna athu Arjun Rampal thaan. Long hair utukitu scenea sutharathagatum. Wife kita pammara sceneagatum. Manushan kalasirukar.

Mothathula..nalla time pass movie..friendsoda poi paatha inum majava irukumngarathu no doubt.

Nightmare on wall street:

"Wailing Wall" street
"Brick by Brick comes the wall street down"..

Possible headliners for mid day newspapers in US?? Could be.

The earth has shaken and the big t(h)ree has fallen. The dust is still settling down and god knows how many more are going to bite the bankruptcy bullet. Lehmann Brothers and Meryll lynch go the Bear Stearns way - towards extinction. While Meryll lynch might survive as an underdog of Bank of America, Bear Stearns being already gobbled up by Morgan Stanley many expected Lehmann Bro to ride out the storm, with the hope of Barkley's doing the rescue act this time, in vain. The same Lehmann firm was in news last year, for paying top bill (1 crore plus) for an IIM graduate sparking off debates in India.

Guess, after 7 years, its sep 11 all over again in US, only that the venue is different this time. Another biggie by the name AIG (American Insurers Group) is also reported tottering at the brink. Will the Feds do anything to save it is a question which would've answered by this time next week. Maybe US Fin market is becoming seasonal? They had a "Spring" time a while back and the moment republicans took over its "Autumn" and "Fall" season now!!

Bharathiyar songla vara
"Imaya charalil oruvan iruminan
kumari vaazhbavan marunthu kondodinan" mathiri

US marketla kuliradicha namma oor sensexa izhuthu moodidranga. Erkanavay irangu mugathula irunthathu ipo sarukitu oduthu. Lehman bro, ML, BOA elathukumay India based operations/back office iruku. Wonder how much would be the impact here.

Career women Vs Home makers- part 2

A family with 2 earning members definitely enjoys its financial benefits. But there are certain people who fear that it would mean dilution of the male domination. Head of the family, till date, in our social system, has been either the earning member or the eldest in the family. When two people of almost same age get married and if both go to work, fat chance that there might be ego clashes. Maybe in future we might see terms like arms of the family, legs, eyes and kidneys for the sake of satisfying egoes ;)

In the same talk show there were ladies who wanted to go to work but couldnt due to protesting hubbies and family members. Their main complaint was that, despite being qualified or already serving in a job of their choice, marriage was the reason why they couldnt fullfill their career ambitions. And many claimed that despite having kids and responsibility towards the elders in their family they argued that they would be able to manage their careers.

There is another intersting yet difficult angle which was subdued by sounds of rationality. Velaiku pora ponnungalam thimir pudichavanga. Veetuku adanga maatanga. So better option is not allowing them to work after marriage apdinulam silar argue pannanga. Ithu outrighta reject panna vendia oru thinkinga irunthalum oru iota of unmai irukaratha vachu yosichu paatha..well..kaila kaasu iruntha oru thani confidence athuva varathu thaan unmai. Athai thimurunu solli working ladiesa adaki vaikrathu nyayam ilainalum it definitely creates more complexities. And that too if the wife earns more than her hubby.. god forbid.


On one side, it would be a real waste of their potential if they have to sit at home after earning all required professional qualifications, feeling bored to death, doing the mundane, but no less important, daily tasks. On the other hand, the very foundation of our family system is built on parents and its always assumed that the lady of the house always gives the mother in her, first priority against her own wishes and dreams. Be it the founder of Infy or any successful man, there is always the woman who has silently strangled her own ambitions and dreams.

To avoid such deadlocks people should sit and discuss clearly as to what they want to be and for how long is it sustainable. One maynot be always able to decide and foresee all situations. But the fact that they have set the thought process rolling would be a definite postive first step. If it can be reasonably established that a decent living can be enjoyed with one persons salary itself its better for the other spouse to take care of home, now whose head should be the on the chopping block is something which is onesided at present and its always the ladies who quit their jobs for their family.

However liberal or rebellious in mindset a guy maybe, the day that he sits at home taking the role of a home maker while sending his wife to work, maynot be possible even in the next century. I mean the real positive people and not the drunkards and similar invalids. "Udhyogam purusha lakshanam" is something OWNED by right by the menfolk ever since they evolved. Not an easy one to relinquish. And even the ladies are mesmerised into thinking that the menfolk SHOULD be the bread winners. Will we seeing such a mature society in future where women lead the way with active support from men?? I really dont see it happening in my lifetime atleast :)

Carrer women Vs Home makers - part 1

Should Women go to work after marriage? which is better suited for a woman post marriage? being a home maker or being a career oriented woman? This has been the hot topic in the talk shows in the past two weeks. Raging debates, with active participation from both men and woman, talking for and against the view. Everyone talked with their personal experience as proof/reason for their view. Several interesting points came up.

One main point, almost all the people who participated were either teachers/lecturers or IT people or Bankers. There was very little or no representation from other industries. May be these are the sectors which heavily employ women? Definitely not i should say. Infact, i read in a magazine. According to some survey, job for women apdina udanay first thonara jobs ennava irukumnu ketrukaanga. The result was predominantly in favour of front office personnel/models based on their looks (this brought lot of criticism but a real fact), nurses following close second with teachers coming a distant third.

There were many points raised by working women, who didnt want to go to work because they said, they missed being with their children when their kids needed them and also that they miss seeing them grow, uttering their first words, unable to go out with their hubbies or spend time with their inlaws (ithu mega dupe). When a guy goes for work..he misses all these things too. Wonder why no one asked a dad as to how he feels to miss his kids first utterences and things like that. Motherhood is saintly. Divine. No questions asked or no criticism raised. Agreed. But give some thought to a dads plight also, people.

All these days women liberation, equality, same pay.. all those stuff were there and were quite rightly fought for. Now that women are into almost all the fields as men are, why the cribbing that they miss their motherhood. The fact which irks me is that, its really people who can afford to send their kids to a creche or daycare center are the ones who crib the loudest. Imagine the plight of garment/export office lady workers or those into construction jobs, daily wagers and all. The fact is that they dont even have a representation itself says volumes of their plight. People talk of empowering women with work. Well these people are not working to establish their "empowerment" but rather are forced to do such hardwork for their daily bread. Does anyone questions them as to how do they feel when they are not around to hear their new borns first word?? Whether they are working out of choice or for want of a better living?

P.S: Ending extended to part 2 :D
