Daiiii...ithey topicla inum evlo postda poduva nu kekareengala...athu pona postu.....ithu intha postu :D hehehe...well..2009 ambutu pudichi poachunga. Silenta santhadi ilama..singlesa thattiye thideernu half centurynu mattaiya thookara Hussey, Dhoni mathiri..onnumay nadakatha mathiri iruku aana egapatta mattera nadathi vachitu 2009 ess aguthu. I always used to believe that..If you want something, with whole your heart, with absolute belief that you need it, you are sure to get it. This year only reaffirms my faith :)

More than anything there were too many learnings for me in this year. Neria realisations. Main matter onnu solanumn..which has actually set a precedent for me to follow in my life.

A was reporting to B 5 years back. In fact B was his teacher who took A through the basics of what he is doing currently. In a quirk of fate..it so happened that B is now in the same team of A who has to assign work to B!! Without feeling hassled B took it so professionally that he even went to…

Stars shine down..

The invite was fluttering in the late December breeze..lying aimlessly near the window sill.

It was from his school alumni association.

"No..i am not going"

"Ram..stop being a kid..is this the age to protest against going to school" laughed Uma.."and by the way there wont be any classes for you to attend.."

Ram kept quiet and started switching channels in TV..his usual way of ignoring Uma.

"Raaaaaammmmm RRRRR....how many times should i ask you...whats the formula for vinegar" bellowed Chandra mam.."cha..who allowed these people into science group ...fit only for commerce..inga vanthu en kazhutha arukuthunga"

There was wide spread giggles. Thats nothing new for Ram, as it was a daily affair, for whom chemistry spells che"mystery". But had it not been for his science teacher..no one in his class would've even noticed him.

Ram - the perennial underachiever in a class of super bots.…

Review time again :)

The movie watchers world was split into two last weekend - Those who saw AVATAR and those who couldnt get tickets. Luckily i was in the first group :) YES! Seen tht movie...wwohoooo...that too in 3D...woohoo woohooo. OK. Hype subsided. Now to what the heck was that movie all about.

First thing first. This is one movie where the producer cannot complain where in the world did they spent 2000 crores of his money. Well its not exactly "in the world" its literally out of the world!! As i came out of the theater i wasnt exactly sure whether i liked the movie or not. What was the fuss all about this being the mother of all movie going experience? The story was hardly new. Its the Lawrence of Arabia meet Red Indians (Blue ones rather as per the movie). Little by little it started trickling in. Hey..wait a minute..the entire movie is shot in some alien planet right!! Oh yeah...Then the realisation came. None of them is real!!!! 90% of the movie is graphics and is so goddamn original…

The Great gamblers

Algorithm of an arranged marriage:

1) Check the foto if like it goto step 2
2) Check the horoscope if it matches goto step 3
3) Visit the gals/guys house for free snack session and have an officially sponsored violation of privacy with the sort of questions that would've made you beet red in anger had the situation been anything otherwise.
4) If step 3 finishes satisfactorily..get the 2 bakras married!!!

There are many people around who dont believe in placing bets or who consider gambling as an evil. But still they have no qualms in going in for an arranged marriage. It still beats me..how can one judge a person with just a few minute talk and above all get CONVINCED that he/she is going to be his life partner??!!! Even to select a team mate we have 4 rounds of interview!!!

Before you guys jump on me..let me hide behind the disclaimer. I've absolutely no issues with this concept which has worked well for my parents..their parents..relatives...and majority of people i knew and i am …

Review time

After seeing "Fight Club"..my first reaction was ..."huh, What a movie??!@#$%". A little later i was wondering whats that movie was actually about. One meek guy..tired of his boring life, which is so boring that he cant even sleep, meets an interesting character who shows him a new world of thrills and action. And lo behold..arises a new mighty meek. That same fateful night of the meeting, the meek's house blows up. He is left stranded on the streets. He calls up his new friend and meets him on a bar. After a couple of drinks, the new friend invites him to his house but on a condition that they should have a fight before that. A bloody fisty and feisty fight ensues after which the meek settles with the new guy in his house. Many onlookers who witness the fight get enthralled with the idea of the fight and soon an underground club of fighters is formed - The Fight club. Rule no. 1 of fight club, You shouldn't discuss about it to anyone. Rule no.2 of fight cl…

From Confedration towards Confused Nation

Andru:

"avvvvvvvvvvvvv.....enaku antha bommai venum..."
"chellam...adam pudikathada..saapdu"
"saapda maaten po..enaku antha bomma vaangithanthaa thaan sapduven"
"chamthula..saapduma...amma paavamla.."
"avvvvvvvvvvvvv.....maaaten maaten"
"ipo sapdla..udha vizhum"
"maaten...maaten..maaten"

The kid ultimately prevails and the doll is bought.

Indru:

"Fast unto death"..."wont even drink a drop of water...till telengaana is achieved"..."blood will flow.." blah blah blah...

And this time the government yields to the demand.

Story so far...First partla Ram and Uma are leading a happy married life..Ramoda love letter paathu Uma kindal panra. That triggers the flashback where Ram narrates how he fell in love with Uma. Second partla Ramuku ponnu paaka poranga avanga family. Ponnu sidelenthu further news varama proceedings abrupta stop aguthu. Aduthu ennaachu?? here we go..



Ram, Siddharth, Arun and Amal are all sitting in Pizza hut. It was Arun's treat.

"Exxxcuse me.." calls Amal at the waiter.

"Can you get me another bottle of sauce..this one is over"

"dei..sauce kekanumna saatharanama keta poratha..kaila kathiyoda kekara..pizza vetta kathi kudutha irukaravangalalam vetiruvaan polarukay..keezha vaida" endru athatinaan Arun

"machi..kathi kaati kaasu keta thaan thappu..sauce keta koodava"

Peals of laughter followed.

From minds "I"

Each passing year, surpasses the previous year with the speed with which it whizzess past. Feels just few weeks back i went for this
outing and now..in few weeks time its bye bye 2009...SO FAST this year has gone by.

2009 year..hmm..made me realise that, whatever situations i dreamed of in 2008, aren't actually fitting me now. Life is like an expanding waistline :) how much ever you gym, the Battle of the Bulge is always won by TIME. It teaches you that, age is something that is not just in numerals but in the numerous experiences which one encounters day in and day out. Whatever held good 5 years back, sounds so boring now. I think once in a while one should just break around everything and rebuild one's castle. Else it becomes claustrophobic.

Each year, year end post podrachay, will think about something significant which happened tht year. Officela appraisal time also happens during this periodngarathu is sheer happenstance :) In either case, i wouldnt be able to dig out mo…
