Hyperbola Gils :)

In my previous post, while mentioning about the quirks of Monk and how they make up majority of the episodes was wondering is it really possible to be so...hmm...confirming. Ipdilaam kooda yaarachum irupaangalanu yosichapo it reminded me of some quirks of my own :)

School padikarapolaam if a paper...any paper(!!) happens to touch my leg, udanay thottu kannula othindruven :D My sister used to be a playful (read normal) soul and will step on anything despite my mom's warning that stepping on school bag means no padippu yerings in ur mandai. I took those warnings literally :) and till date none of my bags go anywhere near the toes :D aana padippu thaan yerina maathiri therila :D During school days, I used to wear my right socks and shoe first. Thappi thavari left socks potukittenna adutha arai mani neram kaalula etho weight katti vitta mathiri oru feeling irukkum. Will forcefully try to divert my mind into something else and worst case, when possible, will wear the shoe again. And notebooksla centerla thaan label oattanum. Cornerla oattina antha subject kashtama irukumnu oru "abaaara" nambikkai. All notebooks should be covered with golden brown color wrapper sheets. Athu semma thicka irukkum and in entire class mine would be the only one in that color wrapper. Oru mathiri orangish colorla, almost paperlike feeling wrapper, was the common one then and athu poattalum subject saria padikka varaathunu adutha "abaara" nambikkai. Ella bookslayum first pagela, exact middlela oru pullyaar suzhi kandipaaga irukkum :D and will always right my name with initials in front followed. Once when i saw my friend writing his name first followed by initials, it took me a while to digest that people can write in that format!!!
Ethaachum chapter padichitenna antha page would be marked with dog ears :) the more the folds more happy i would be that i know the contents of that page. Pinnadi intha pazhakkam apdiye ulta aaidichi. Ippolaam novels padikarachay, i hardly fold the pages. Either i would finish them in one sitting or would exactly remember where i left. Keeping a book in exactly the same condition as i got it is the latest fetish :D

Athey mathiri if something touches my hand or leg, like a screen cloth or paper floating on air, it has to touch both the limbs. Dont ask me why..i've no reason :D And if i take anything from a shelf or draw, i will keep it back each time even if i have to take it out a hundred times. If its from the draw, it HAS to go back to the draw. If i dont keep it back, avlo thaan. Once i took out scissors to cut a cover and pesikittay didnt notice where i kept it. When i needed it again it was so frustrating to note that it was not in its usual place. Ithula enna matterngareengala..well, to avoid a repeat of the situation i bought half a dozen scissors. Now i've so many that i've simply lost track of the number of scissors in our room :) Same goes for pen. I hate to borrow from people simply for the reason that if i ask and don't get it will feel very bad. Ithukaagavay will have a dozen of them in my bag. Athula evlo ezhuthumnulaam theriaathu..for i hardly write nowadays..but they should be there :) Ippo yosichi paatha ithelaam naama thaan pannomaanu nambavay mudia maatenguthu :D

ok...kathai mudikara timelayaachum title pathi solanumla. Mathematically speaking, one of the constraints for a hyperbola is that its eccentricity should be greater than 1 (less than 1 parabola and exactly 1 ellipse nenakren...not sure). Ennoda list of eccentricities kandipa greater than 1 thaana :D athaan antha title..hehehe :D

Hey..y dont you folks list down your quirks :D may the quirkiest win :D

Hyperbola "Thalai"

- Forever linking Gilsu to Asin, Tamanna, et al
- Moaning that Gilsu has become an Yank
- Making fun of the "remote wilderness" where Gilsu now lives
- Reading avidly the sayings of Swami Gilsananda

idhellam sagajam appa!

Mine are ulta of yours.
i wrote my name followed by a comma and my dad's initial.

i never put pillaiyar suzhi, all in my family do. naan first pagela first line margin melerendhu ezhuduven, konjam kooda paper waste panna matten.

i hated orangish brown color and preferred khaki color cover or even colorful newspaper cover.

Even i would stamp books and paper and argue " sami is omnipresent and all that" with my elders.

Funnily, today with no one around now to tell me all this, if i stamp paper, odanay kannula otthipen.

Chennai-28 part 2- boys are back

The best thing about the first part of the movie, Chennai-28, that came like a decade back was its originality. The pin code had a role to play and was right in the scheme of things which made the movie a hit. It was a nostalgic walk through for people like me who grew up near that area and all those cricket grounds and lanes and streets had ready recall value. Bonus was the simple story with tongue in cheek one liners and the climax twist that was a roftl howler on the team. Even the songs were memorable and everything clicked well in first part. Very rarely do we get sequels which are a literal continuation with almost the same cast playing their age per the story. A big kudos to the director for the setup. Nothing seems artificial and he has played to the strength of the story pretty well. The cricket crazy boys in first part have all become adults, with none, but for one, are bachelor. They’ve their daily routine life, which other than many things, is totally devoid of playing cri…

La la land

The whole issue of mini-mum usurping the throne is heading towards Stockholm syndrome of a climax. All that is required is for her to appear before mike in a publicized meet and cry a few tears on how people are tarnishing and passing cheap comments on her and blocking her opportunity just because she was an assistant to the late supremo. Social media is abuzz with meme’s of how the ex-servant maid is now going to be the next ruler of the state and are, as usual, over the top in decrying her and her intentions. Some of the comments and memes may straight away invite defamation cases and are out right condemnable even if true. What such people miss out is that, though their intention of stopping a corrupt person to come to power may be justified, their means are not. Not a single meme or post talks about how corrupt she is and what are the charges against her and no one is questioning her source for creating such a vast fortune when her original and only known occupation had always bee…

Remo - Movie review

Much ado about Remo could very well be an apt title for this post. Siva Karthikeyan has reinvented the tried and tested success formula of wastrel hero winning laddu heroine, patented by Dhanush and Vijay and Ajith and who-is-who in the movie industry. At some point of time in their career, before their image started deciding scripts for them, all mass heroes have been victim of picking scripts that were bordering on female harassment to abuse, when the same scenario if applied to the villain would lead to fatal consequences for him what might earn catcalls and whistles and even duet for the hero, mocking the heroine. And all said and done, if she, sanely, decides to reject the advances of the hero, there would be even more bashing bhashans on how selfish womenfolk are as compared to how selfless and pure the guys who woo are, who are in fact wastrels as pronounced by all and sundry, right from their own parents to peers to people of their parish.

Rajini successfully tapped the male e…
