Crossroads

Life pathi polambara post is never quite complete or doesnt quite begin without a thathuva quote on life itself :) So here goes nothing. Life is never a long winding straight road. Its always filled with crossroads and junctions and even if we want to go straight, there would be diversions or road blocks which would alter our course. At times willingly and many times unwillingly. The route may or may not be the one we would want or like initially. But almost always take you to where you want to go. Might sound like a lost man's riddle. But that's how my life has been all these years. At times, i consciously cut away from my comfort zones and try out something different just for the heck of it. But many a times, a sudden rapid or fall throws me off balance and by the time i steady the ship, the course is altered beyond return. Adapting to such sudden developments being the only hope have almost always been on the look out for incidents like that sound the bugle before. But God…

Styleu Styleuthaan..

"Ennada hair style ithu...paanaiya kavuthu vitta mathiri..decenta irukka eppo thaan kathukka poriyoo" .
It would've been an otherwise ordinary rant of Mom if not for the source behind it. Some one in temple had commented about my hairstyle (rather the lack of it) to her and that which had convinced her as the main reason behind my single status!!! Athepdi yengenthu yethai link panraanga therila!! End result, i was chased away from home with the warning that unless my hairstyle was at an acceptable level (which god only knows) i wouldnt be allowed inside. My sis too joined the bandwagon and sided with the enemies. She gave me her membership card for one local spa and booked an appointment for me.

The D-day arrived.

When i entered a chinese lady greeted me and gave me a catalogue which resembled the ones given at Pizaa Hut. Naama saloonuku thaan vanthirukoma ila saapdavaa nu lighta doubtoda opened it. I was not much wrong. Atleast on the price columns. Antha bookla irukar…

In conversation with God

Got this interesting piece from FB. 




Me: God, can I ask You a question?


God: Sure


Me: Promise You won't get mad


God: I promise


Me: Why did You let so much stuff happen to me today?


God: What do u mean?


Me: Well, I woke up late


God: Yes


Me: My car took forever to start


God: Okay


Me: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait


God: Huummm


Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call


God: All right


Me: And on top of it all off, when I got home ~I just want to soak my feet in my new foot massager & relax. BUT it wouldn't work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did You do that?


God: Let me see, the death angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one
of My Angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that


Me (humbled): OH


GOD: I didn't let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that would have hit you if you were on the road.


Me: (ashamed)


God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick & I didn&…

Kaathalil sothapuvathu eppadi?

What an intriguing title. This would've been the question on every guy or gal who ever crossed their teens and first love syndromes. A question for which there is no definitive answer. The answer that has wrecked many a romance. And the reason for which is known to none. A dog chasing its own tail situation. But everyone loves to be in love and some even loves the misery that accompanies it. No wonder its called "falling" in love. You fall from your normal stance and make a fool of yourself and yet tend to enjoy it all the while. Its essentially that feeling of joy of liking someone and getting your liking reciprocated, that which overpowers everything sane in your life.

The movie is an adaptation of a short film by the same director and title. Kudos to the director for retaining most of the cast from the short film in the movie. Its Siddarth's show all the way. He narrates, cribs, smiles, laughs, cries, angers and charms throughout the movie ( quoted verbatim from …

"Hey Ram...i got two tickets for movie this weekend. You want to join?"asked Priya.

"Sweet saapdatha erumbu...pazham thinnaatha korangu...padam paakatha Ram..intha moonum non exisitent"  butted in Anil.

"hahahaa...nee avlo peria movie freaka..surprising"

"Ithula surpise aaga enna iruku " asked Ram

"Illa..i always thought you as one hmmm..satha bookum kaiyuma suthara person"

"sodabutti poatta beku in other words" added Anil

"konjam...close panria" signalled Ram to Anil.

Looking at the glare Anil signalled shutter closure. Ram excused himself to join a client meeting. After he left Priya said amidst peals of laughter "my god. you two are amazing. cant believe that you people are managers. you are so down to earth"

"Hello..ethuku ipo intha ulkuthu?"

"chacha..nejama solrenpa...you two are the best"

"how can two people be best..rendu perla yaar bestu sollu" argued Anil

Hail Mr.Murphy

If anything can go wrong it will - quoted Mr.Murphy. I guess he was one deerkadarisi who foresaw the need for such a quote considering the imminent arrival of a poor species going by the name Gils. Athennamo therila enna maayamo puriala...if something goes issue free or trouble free i feel awkward and nervous. Unless something goofs up or goes amazingly wrong, it is never satisfying. Right from school days, when we have to queue up for picking up our lab exam experiment questions, the entire class would be eagerly waiting for me to pick the first paper. For they knew for sure that the magic hands of mine would pick the most atrocious of all the questions :(  Such had been my luck that it had become a legendary topic of discussion and a recent stint at the consulate was another addition to that legend's mystique.

The day of the visa interview dawned bright and shine and was surprisingly issue free. It scared the rat out of me when i arrived for the interview 45 mins in advance, a …

Ars Longa Vita Brevis

My maiden Toast master speech 'Ice Breaker' topic script :))  
Gerund - in English Grammar refers to those words which are of verb + ing form. Here i am, with my heartbeat racING, mind bogglING, tongue slurrING ..a walking talking example of Gerund.
Ladies and Gentlemen...It gives me an immense sense of honor to stand at this very place.. and here..and here.. and all over this place.. that has produced some of the funniest and finest orators this place has ever seen. I wish and hope they were at least half as nervous as i am now when they gave their maiden speech. This Toastmasters club has a thing in common with one of Steve Jobs Quote. You STAY HUNGRY..for obvious reasons (timing is from 1 PM to 2.30PM)..but unlike the quote its NEVER FOOLISH to STAY.  
As per any typical Icebreaker's procedure I've to talk about myself..and what's more easier than talking about ones own self. Or at least that's what i thought. When i sat down to jot down points that i can say a…
