Happy days...part II

Sorting Ceremony:

There's nothing hidden in your head
The Sorting Hat can't see,
So try me on and I will tell you
Where you ought to be

J.K.Rowling

Time flew..and soon we were facing our terminal exams...Just like the sorting hat ceremony in Harry potter series we had our own sorting ceremony called the terminal exams.

"Whoever kept the name as terminal for these exams...must be a real genius.." commented Guna sagely...
"haha...if you dust your books once a year atleast and see whats inside it wouldnt sound so hopeless..where is Shiv."
"He is off to check out his part time job..someone should tell him..he is spending more time in that part time job than even a full time employee...hardly comes to classes..he is so money mindedda...i hate that guy..."
"Danny..we shouldnt be judgemental on people without knowing the reason behind their actions..Shiv has severe financial problems at home"
Everyone went silent..It was rishi who broke it..."He could've told us machan...why he wants to alienate us from his issues...idiot.."
"You should appreciate his willingness to work out these issues on his ownda..ok..come lets go...else we might have one more paper in arrears list tommorow..hahaha "

"Macha...tommorow we have the team selection for this yearda..exam mudichitu elarum ground vanthirunga...From our class atleast we should have 3 representatives.." said Rishi..
"Dei..Arun epdiyum select aaiduvan for opener slot..bowlingku namma muthu select aanana supera irukum..lets be there to cheer them...dei Sridhar..nee thaan dakaalti party...mavanay escape aagalmnu paatha tinnu thaan.."
Sridhar just smiled and kept quiet..
"ivan sari pattu vara maatan...naliku exam mudinja udanay ivana katti thookitu vanthirungada...Ram intha task unaku....our crowd should be present in full strength..podra soundla ground alaranum...entha eventuku ponalum anga naama yarunu kaatanum..namma ganga paathu nadunganum...thookanumda..ella prizeum thookanum.." "thundered" Rishi.....he was the natural task manager in the group..we were so sure that he would make a gud organiser if not a manager..from that time onwards till the end of our term he was the event manager of our group...whether it was a movie or any outing for that matter he was the incharge.
"dei..kaakka kaaka pandiya mudi weight kuda ila nee...unakenda intha sound...adanguda.."
The gang dispersed amidst peals of laughter...

The day of team selection came..PT master was the hero of the day..usually twice a year he hogs the limelight..during the day of team selection and also before the year ending exams..when folks without attendance follow him day and night for his grace to get the required attendance percentage to avoid condonation by getting on duty days.
on the day of team selection our crowd was present in big numbers to cheer Arun and rest of our mates..every hit was greeted with huge cheers and misses were cheered even more ...ground was reverberating with cries of A...R..U..N...had there been a prize for being the best cheerleading squad we would've won it hands down...
Next day we all gathered near the notice board...even before the staff could pin up the list we took it from him and read through the list.. Arun's name was not there in that..everyone was furious except Arun..he was sitting quietly in the class...
Danny was the first one to talk.."macha..we shall strikeda..this is too much..not even a single rep from our class..we will mass bunk till Arun is included in the team...ennada solreenga"
The resolution was passed unanimously with voice vote..with Sridhar being the lone absentee..
"No need guys..yesterday after you all left..PT spoke to me...he wants to include a final year guy as opener...that guy is from middle classs background and if he gets selected in our college team he can join university team and can use that to get some job in some sports quota...enaku ithu passion aaan avanuku ithu life..so vituten..."
I always thought of him as a person who never thought above himself..at that moment he looked like a true hero to me..

Based on the scores we were allotted specialisations of our choice or had to end up with what was left over. Raj had set his eyes on classical maths course coupled with theoretical and practical mathametics. Since i had applied for a course similar to his we shared many of our classes. Language classes were the time off periods amidst the chaos of numbers and theorems and axioms. Arun and some from the gang had applied for electronics.
In the midst of class Arun woke from deep slumber..to hear the prof talking about kovil..
"Maams..why suddely that old man is suddenly religious...talking about kovil and all.."
"dei...that is coil...we are in electronics class..transformers chapter.." Arun was in splits on hearing this..suddenly the duster flew and landed safely on his head..when he looked up it was the prof who was standing next to him...
"Tell me how do you start a DC motor..."
Arun rubbed the sleep out of his eyes...and looked at the proff. blankly...
"TELL ME HOW DO YOU START A DC MOTOR"
"rrm..rrrrmmm..rmmmmmmmm..rrrrrrrrrrrooooommmmmmm..."
The entire class errupted in laughter..only the proff didnt see the joke in that and bellowed..."GET OUT OF MY CLASS.."
Arun cooly got up and left...at the same time a senior student came looking out for Arun for net practice..as luck would have it..one of the seniors calledup sick and PT immediately called Arun for backup..his happiness knew no bounds that day..and so was ours..we felt as if it was our own achivement..first time in our college history a freshman playing in the team...there were talks that he had the potential to represent the state and even the country with luck...may be..but that wasnt what it was meant to be.

For almost all of us in the batch, computer science was a compulsory subject in first year..i was not very keen on computers and took the class just for the heck of it..that too we had mostly theory and very less lab sessions. Most of my batchmates where already pundits in PC operations and were eagerly awaiting comp. sci classes..once when the prof was seriously teaching about precedence of operators i yawned a bit loudly unable to control..the entire class started laughing..the prof turned back from the board and before he could ask anything shiv stood up and said he had a doubt...
That diverted his attention..
"Yes ...whats your doubt?"
"thats the asterisk symbol is it..the one on farther left?"
"yes..?"
"i think u left one more line in the middle...it should have six lines..u've put only five"
The prof stood staring at him for a moment..he smiled and said..."What did you think..if u make wisecracks like this i will send you out of the class is it..no way...the punishment for you is to sit through the class for the whole hour...guys..make way for our new front bencher..inimay en classla nee inga than ukaranum..if i see u missing even for an hour i wouldnt allow you to take the exam...now...Move it...fast..."
I thanked my lucky stars and..went back to sleep :)

Happy days

Makkalay...P.S podlamnu pathen..aana end varaikum padika evlo peruku porumai irukum theriala..so here is P.S (Pre script) hehee.

P.S: Enatharumai Blog makkalay..ungal gilspaandiyin anbu vanakkangal..Eric segaloda "Class" padichitu oru aarva kolarula..athey mathiri me the trying..avar 500 page ezhuthinatha naan oru 5 pagela mudikka try panren...ungalalaam nenacha enaku pavama iruku...avvvvvvvvvvvvv :D

The Class

An aspiring writer..
An ascetic monk
A bumbling salesman
An allround star
One with superior inferiority complex
One who lived his life by the day...never knowing what he missed and never bothered about what he needed...content with what he had and lazy to acheive more...a willing passenger in the ferry of life...reaching for the unknown destination and
Another 70 of them..who are mere names now with barely recognisible faces...

I thought the sparrow's note from heaven,
Singing at dawn on the alder bough;
I brought him home, in his nest, at even;
- He sings the song, but it cheers not now,
- For I did not bring home the river and the sky.

RALPH WALDO EMERSON

Golden Jubilee batch:

Is it a mere coincidence or quirk of fate that we ended up as the golden jubilee batch of the most prestigious university of the country. A boisterous bunch of 70 odd people..eager to take on the world..armed with..Nothing!! We also happened to be the first batch of the new millenium. We were a group of 6 who made a unspoken vow within ourselves to remain in touch. The university centenary celebrations coincided with our ten year completion of gradution.We all decided to use this occassion to meet up. Word spread around. Inboxes where on fire. Emails flew thick and fast. Details were collected ina trice.Promises were made to make time availble. With the same eagerness with which we entered the college on day one we entered the venue again..this time with lot more confidence and lot more fear..On a personal note i was curious to see the faces after a gap of nearly a decade. More scared than
curious. I'd been a silent witness to their glorious deeds blazing their path in their own careers. I had nothing to show but few grey hairs. I sat looking at the
clock as it struck 12 for the night. I still had 9 hours more for the meeting. My heart went back ten years to the day when i set foot on the university for the
first time.

First year - Admission day:

I was impatiently waiting for my turn in the queue, with my dad by my side. For some strange reason the college management had insisted on bringing the parents on the day of admission. I was soon to witness the reason why.It was the turn of the peson before me...
"Rajesh..."..the interviewer gave him a questioning look.."who has come with you"
"My dad sire.." before he could complete his dad got up from his seat with bowed head and introduced himself..
"ok..Rajesh..which group are you applying for.."
"B.A English Lit. sir"
"hmmm...do you drink?"..
Rajesh and his dad give a startled look..
"Do you smoke?.."
Rajesh dad got furious..."halo..sir..what is this..you called my son for interview and are insulting him like this..." and he started raving and ranting about his
family pride and prestige..
Calmly the professor who was interviewing him answered..."Look here sir..its not our intention to insult anyone..we just want to make sure ..peopel who apply for lit group are usually trouble makers and we have a reputation to uphold..."
without even bothering to listen him completing his sentence Rajesh and his dad stormed out. Next it was my turn. I was bit startled by all these and was wondering whats going to be my question.
"So...Ram..you have applied for major in Maths is it..why maths...when with your score you could get into engineering if you wait for a while..."
I babbled something about maths being my strong point which evidently didnt have the impact i thought it would evince in the interviewer..
"So you like maths..hmm..ok..." and he scribbled a problem in integral calculus in a piece of paper and asked me to solve it...which i did.
"impressive..try this..."
After a few more problems he felt satisfied and gave me admission to take up the course. When i came out i felt as if i have been in a sauna with all clothes on. Some consolation for my dad who badly wanted to join me into an engineering course. That he was not happy was evident on his face..
There were few other students who were standing near the entrance giving me an odd look. I thought they might be seniors waiting to rag new joinees and silently managed to give them a slip. Next day was my first day in college. Maths department was on the farthest corner. The hall where we had our first session was ..huge would be a small word to describe it..
".... knows Oxford dictionary by heart and he is a moron when it comes to socialising with people...guess they invented the word oxy moron for him.."
Some guy was commenting about,a thick bespectacled lean kid sitting on the front bench. Somehow i was immediately drawn to that person. He looked shy timid and nervous..i despised the brashness of the person who passed the comment in my heart and went and sat near the specs guy...
"Hi"
He looked at me with suspicion and replied cautiously.."yes?"
"My name is Ram...hope you are as nervous as me...quite a hall isnt it...it outnerves me...u?"
A relieved look came in his face.."I am Sridhar..yeahhh...me too...u r from which school"
The ice was broken and by the time proffessor came we knew our basic background. Then came THE proffesor.
He walked in slowly into the hall. A tiny little person with a raspy little voice. His appearence and the ambience of the hall was quite a contrast. But the moment he entered the hall a hush fell and it was pindrop silence in a matter of seconds. Guess reputation preceeds people. He was the legendary disciple of Alladi Ramchandra, the greatest mathametical exponent of the previous century. With a brief introduction he quickly covered the syllabus and went onto give an overview of what we will be doing for the first year. Sridhar was hooked onto each and every word uttered by the prof. It went so smooth that no one noticed how quickly the first hour flew. Without realising we were through with our first hour. The first half of the day went through quickly with each prof giving intro on the subjects they would be taking..the second half of the day was off. We set off to take a tour of the campus though we were advised not to for the fear of getting ragged by seniors. Sridhar left for home. The college was well known for its strong cricket team. I went to the ground to watch the future heroes in action. There was a small group from my class already seated in a tree shade cheering the batting team. I approached the most familiar of the faces.
"Hi..."
"Hi..surprising..i thought u wud be afraid to come this side alone."
I politely smiled..
"ok.. gang introduce urselves"
"Danny.. Shiv...Guna...Rishi.."
"And Arun...welcome to the gang"...He had an infectious enthusiasm and it soon caught on. I forgot for a moment that he was the one who passed that comment on Sridhar.
Danny was sitting in the shade of a tree busy writing something..Shiva and Guna silently went behind the tree and spied what was he writing...without a warning shiv plunged and flicked the book from Danny...
"Love songs compose panira machi"
"Fool...give it back to me.."
"Catch me if you can..." with that shiv took off with Danny and Guna in pursuit..
Sridhar was silently watching all this and turned back and headed to the library. I was curious to find out what was he doing at that time in the library when hardly any classes had begun.
"Sridhar..." i came running behind him..
Startled he turned back and smiled.."Hi Ram.."
"What are you doing..arent you joining us for lunch.."
"Where are u guys goin.."
"Ananda bavan"
"Its not Ananda Bavan..every dish they serve is so cold..they should rename it as Ariya bavan.."
"hahaha...nice one..ok..pack up..we are moving now..we are all going to a movie after that..come lets go"
"No man..you carry on...to be honest i dont much enjoy these outings and all...my background doesnt allow me these luxeries and i badly need to win this years scholarship for my survival here in this concrete jungle...above all i have taken a dual degree program..and got tonnes to read..if i have offended you sorry man" He went inside the library...
I was wondering if i would be so sure of what i wanted ever in my life..

Life's like that

Sila samyam..nammala suthi nadakara vishayamlam evlo comedya irukunu nenacha its really tickling..enga paati is one non stop source of entertainment ..avanga panna sila ravusu here for u :)

My uncle and grandma both are bit hard of hearing (which they never agree to)..They feel it as a prestige issue to admit and always carry on as if everything is fine with them. One fine day both of them met in a function...enna achuna.....(tortoise coil suthikunga)

Granma: "Ennada vichu...romba naala aalay kanum..."
Unlce: " illakka..Sringeri poirunthen...athan ungala paaka vara mudila.."
Granma: "Kengeri ponieye...oru ettu poi maamiya paathutu vara vendi thaana"
Uncle: " Sringeri poitu swami paakama varuvena..gumbal jaasthi..irunthalum..wait panni pathutu thaan vanthen..."

For the uninitiated...sringeri is a holy place in karnataka and kengeri is a place closer to bangalore. Ivanga rendu per pesarathayum kettu sirichi sirichi engaluku vai valika arambichidichi..when we told them what happened first konjam embarrased aanalum they too joined the laughter...athukaprum sanda poatu rendu periyum docter kita anupi ipo machine poatachu :D

Therinjum theriyamalum kaamedi panuvanga..I had a nokia 3315 for like..hmm..4 years..Keypad skin..ellam part parta vanthirichi antha fonelenthu..still was so fond of it i stuck to using it..oru naal..thideernu athu mandaya poatruthu...sogam thalama..atha adakkam panitu pudhusa oru N72 vaangitu vanthen...

paati came that side and asked.."ennada fone vangirukia...airtela bsnla?" she wanted to show off that she also knows about cell phones and asked for the providers name instead of the makers..

Whenever she came to blore..she will carry her radio with her. Once i asked her...
"paati..athaan ivlo peria music system irukay inga..nee ethuku un radiova thookitu alayara..pesama vachitu varalamla.."

Change is...Temporary

Who said change is permanent...en munnadi vara sollunga..nalla naalu saathu saatharen...change is something which is non existent...imaginary...myth..legend..DUHHHH!!!...i have had enough of this change for the past one week...or rather not had enough change..and thats the reason behind this outburst. Apdi en lifela enna stagnationnu yosikareengala...

Right from schooldays..this change thing has troubled me a lottt....getting into a crowded '21' bus at peak time itself is an ardous task..athulayum...getting the 1 rupee and 25 paise "only" for the ticket is nothing short of a david blaine trick...i have studied probability a bit..picking the correct coin from a pocket containing 5 or more coins for getting the ticket is an IMPOSSIBLE EVENT with a probability of zilch...and that the conductor gives u back the change is something which cannot even be considered for hearsay...it continued into my office days when i joined my first company...

Come Banglore..replace bus with autos..coins with currencies..viola..same scene..act one scene one...curtain raises and falls over poor gills...enga ponalum change ila change ila...cha..lifela oru change venam....Intha kodumais of indialaam anubavichitu office vantha..Change is permanentu en seat kita sticker oti vachirukanga as a part of some program....grrrrrrrr...

The week that was...

Oct 2nd International day of non violence..and i ended up watching the most violent movie ihave ever seen..Apocalypto!! Mel gibsonuku ennapa achu..i dunno whether to appreciate him for the awe inspiringly original way in which the movie has been shot or to despise him for the graphical gore..Right from scene one its revoltingly original..at times i could feel my jaw hurting from clenching it through the scenes..the movie is a candid camera on tribals with usual cinematic exaggeration thrown in at places. Not for those with milder taste.

En iniya Iyanthira...the moment i hear this name its takes me back to the gud ol days of DD...Guess it was Sivaranjani who played the role of Nila in that..who can forget that dog Juno, sujathas best creation after ganesh n vasanth..i was browsing through the tamil section in a book store and unearthed this gem..have read the book in my school days and always wanted to own one..and now i have it :) planning to start a collection of sujatha novels...lets see how far it goes :)

Another book which i bought was Vikramaathithan kathaigal..yup..the same ol vikram vetal series...amazing..inag oru story full mudikarathukulla nora thalluthu..in that vikramathithan series..each story has an interlink with some story or other which leads u into a labyrinth of stories and mesmerisingly take you through the magical world of vikram and in a simple yet interesting way the knots and loops unfold and it all comes to a meaningful conculsion..amazingly simple yet so complex...chancela..if u'vent read it yet..chk it out...makes nice read..

Vera enna pannen..hmm..Bourne Ultimatum padam paathen...its no way related to the Original story from the book..but its somewhat better than the book...very very fast movie..racy is slow to describe it..guess the cameraman mite win an oscar..WOW..the car chasing scene in climax..i wonder how many cameras were used..its a no brainer scene by concept but amazingly shot..padam enamo usual tamizh telugu masala padam mathiri thaanalum...kaathula pooku badila thoatamay sutharanga...but 2 hour ponathay therila semma fast..makes nice weekwend watch with hot popcorn..( u need not buy more than a pack as the movie wud be over by the time u come to the second one ;) )

Gotcha!!!

"Muthu"la vara thalaivar dialogue thaan nyabagam varuthu.."Kedaikarathu kedaikaama irukathu...kedaikama irukarthu kedaikathu" ... all my life i've been such an "orderly" and "systematic" person that i wud've made a live example for chaos theory in practice..whenever i hunt for something i find something else which i wud've been searching for months back..but never the item of the current search..my friend once cribbed about the same thing to me and i sagely advised her to always search for the things which she doesnt want and she would end up with the one she wants..so much for the advice..well..matter ennana..if you guys remember a year back i was searching for my school mates who were online and had started a community in orkut for the same..at that time i could hardly locate any and almost gave up the search..last week..i met a friend of mine on the bus in chennai..as luck would have it we got adjacent seats :D it was a sweet surprise and as luck would have it he was in touch with a few of our school mates..and the search which went cold got picked up again and now we have finally managed to cover most of the missing mates..all thanks to orkut.. :) most of them are beyond recognition..many married and are settled abroad..some have kids...it feels weird and happy at the same time to catch up with folks after a gap of..13 years...thats a little more than half my life time!! each of us have undergone such a dramatic change in personality no one is what he or she were before..its pretty obvious but still when you try to recollect the person from your memory of how they were a dozen years back and try to relate to the one at present it feels really really different..and its really such a small world...one of my ex colleague is married to my mca mate who is the brother of a blog mate of mine and whose brother is working in my present team!!! ithey rangela ponaan..adaam evaalla than poi nikum nenakren :D anyways...

Ode to HP

Not about my kambeni..atha pathi thaniya postaren..this post is dedicated to the latest and last installment in the Harry Potter series...Alas! a great series comes to end..for folks who are keen followers i share your grief..for the uninitiated..well there is more to life which you have been missing folks...reading books you love is a magic in itself..that too when the characters are magical themselves...well what to say...i read the first one half heartedly..didnt like the cover picture...i have a hmm..sort of fetish towards book covers...the book should impress me right from cover page..when i saw the "HP n philosophers stone" book..it wasnt much impressive..infact i had to plough through the book..couldnt follow half the things as i guess Rowling had decided to have the book in several parts right from page one of part one..so most of the characters events where placed with a cloud of mystery hanging over each scene..though it aroused a wee bit of curiosity..the very thought that the second installment is going to be a year later was a put off...i never thought i would wait for the second part to come and had almost forgot about the book itself..the next i saw the books where when i went to my friends place..i saw that his wife was crazy about HP and had bought all the three parts which had come till that time...and surprisingly the cover was interesting this time..i started with the third part "HP n Prisoner of Azkaban" and guess what it was pretty interesting..it had some parts missing..the best part about Rowlings writing is that she assumes that you have read the previous parts when she writes the current one..reading the third part enthused me to read the other parts..and thus began my quest...till i read the last part i thought "chamber of secrets" was her best...but this last edition "Deathly Hallows" definitely lived up to the expectations and was an amazing read..when the book was released i didnt ran up to buy it..750 rs per piece...evan vaanguvannu vituten..but when i chkd one of thebook shops causally..i was shocked to hear that they had sold out all the pieces on day one first hour itself...then after frantic chking i finally managed to buy it in a new bookstore which opened up near our area...first padichathu last ten pages thaan..who dies n who survivesnu therinjukama mandaye vedichurum pola adicihi...it feels sad that the series ends with this 7th part...wish there are more...harry potter padikarapolaam...u feel as if u r transferred into their magical world...the names which Rowling has selected for each of the spells and the magical items which makes entry in each series..ellam top class..for encyclopedia there is an equivalent rememberall and there is this stupefy curse to stun someone...patronus charm to chase away the dementors..toad sweets...oh my my...fresh imagination...and awesome charaterisation...enaku Hermione and Ron romba pudikum...Harry obviousa ellarukum pudikum...firstlenthu Dumbeldore, the headmaster of the magic school, Harryoda mentor n guide and role model mari solitu final partla avarum weak person thangara mari solirukarthu konjam pudikala..but interesting twists..paarapatcham paakama ella charactersaiyum poatu thalra vidham...hats off to Rowling..Harry potter series are over..Long live Harry potter series :)

Review time...

Chak De India..

Makkalay..kandippa paarunga miss panaatheenga...padam romba nalla iruku..for any hockey enthusiast or sports enthusiast its a must watch...enna mari sila caselaam iruku..goli gilli matchnalum India thaan win pananumngara alavuku veri..antha mathiri makkals wud lap it up...surprisingly SRK gives a nice performance..nalla udambu ethi..he gives a creditable performance as the coach..and no romantic duets or heorine for him mind you..no mushy scenes where he can ham his heart out..unlike KANK where he literally irritated everyone with his constant bickering and crying he is more manly in this movie...his role is also a bit new for hindi movies considering a superstar actor donning it..there are certain scenes which are very delicate and could have been judgemental or jingoistic degressing from the core theme..but luckily the movie doesnt and holds its line..the scene where his friend says..its hight time he came out of the guilt and everyone and every sin has a pardon..he sagely replies not for everyone..the movie has a few highlights like this and it talks about the difficulty in being a leader and belonging to a different community and the humiliation which he has to undergo..and hold on..not just that..it also talks of women lib too..in a tongue-in-cheek cinematic style..there is another delicate scene in the movie where the ladies comepete with the men team..the scene is to bolster the image of ladies in front of the chauvinistic committee folks..so the director cant allow the team to loose..but being a movie which is pro hockey from the first line he cannot also show the mens team in poor light..not even a draw..i liked the way that scene had been portrayed..its was neither cinematic..nor very sombre..the ending is the real icing on the show...SRK doesnt rush in with all instruments blaring nor does he do any jig..he simply walks back and closes the door to the world..keeping his hurt to himself...and yeah..i almost missed out..for the sports enthu folks..we have quite a few moments in the movie..the final penalty shoot out is one such scene..nicely made and the dresing room fights are also equally interesting..and oh yeah..i forgot to mention the gal brigade :) the goalie looks cute..reminds me of someone i couldnt place a name...the one who plays the role of the forward preeti someone..looks gawky n gud at the same time :) but the real show stealer is that kutti paiyan like lady from Jharkand..man..wattan energy..guess she must have been a real player...the kind of enthusiasm and energy she displays on the field is contagious..and last but not the least the punjabi gal...who has u in splits of laughter...overall all a totally enjoyable movie with some decent performances...chk it out folks..nice to see India winning something against the Aussies...atleast in the movies :) infact for each of the goals i could hear people cheering.. :) chk it out folks :)

Dont tell anyone...its a secret..

Dont tell anyone..
How many times have u endured this phrase in ur life..By accepting or agreeing to this one liner, you unknowingly create a barrier, which many a time results in breaking more than one relationship. If you think that people trust you so much, that they share their darkest of secrets only with you, by binding you with this "magical" phrase...think twice fellas..it might so happen that, you may be one of the many bound by this invisible clause. Simplest way to make a mess of a relation is, to tell something to one person and utter this "Dont tell it to anyone"...kekkaravan kenaya iruntha eruma kuda aeroplane oatumaam (ithuku vera definition edhuvum ivlo decenta maatala..therinjavanga purinjavanga manichukunga :) )...i fail to understand the thrill people get in sowing the seeds of secrecy on eveyone..its either that they want to enjoy the pleasure of "revealing" the "news" to everyone themselves or simply to have fun on your account or they are utterly suspicious folks who should be immediately banished to Azkhaban...

Huh..thats a real stinker of a post..irukara kadupellam kotti theethachu.. :)

Cyber Sparisangal

Makkas n makkis..me d back with one more story...intha story enna spl..well..its written by my lazy friend who doesnt want to open a blog of his own..chk it out..and as usual..u know wer to thuppify :D

Place : cyberbit systems, Dubai.
Time : 1540 hrs

Kumar was working at a feverish pace. Every ten minutes he was looking at his watch cursing the change request which came at the last moment. Though he was physically in office his mind was already travelling back home.
"Ram.. can you test this code fast.."
"Sure Sire...you sure seem to be in hurry..getting late for a date or what.." ram added with a wink.
Kumar was pacing in front of the monitor as if he is awaiting his first baby...painfully reminding himself that he wasnt actually there when his first kid was born.
"Object not found" spat came the error..
Kumar banged the desk in frustration.
"Sire..relax..i can pitch in for you..no tension..let me see if i can fix this bug..you carry on.." volunteered Ram.
"Thanks Ram..I owe you one.."
"No probs..If its a girl you are meeting..get her friends number for me..." Rams voice was ringing on the hallway when Kumar was thudding to the parking lot...
When he reached the parking lot that time only realised that he had forgotten to intimate his PM about the status...he called up Ram...
"Dude..one more help...can u tell our damager about the status on my behalf..send a mail from my pc..password is same as last week...thanks man...i owe you two now.."
With one foot firmly on the accelerator he was speeding towards his room.
He had a tough time to remember the list of things he wanted to speak. He again went over the important events of that week and sorted them out mentally as to what needs to be told and what can wait. He realised the value of time and was wondering whether he did the right thing by opting for this job. Barely avoiding the truck in front of him he swerved off to his right. In a way his life was also like that. Swerving off at the last minute, postponing decisions till the eleventh hour and letting the events take its own course.

"Five mins..just five more mins..." he consoled himself as he parked the car in the basement...without even bothering to check if its closed properly or not he rushed to the lift..he has been waiting for this day for the whole week..

He switched on the lights..with a million questions running on his mind..Will she be at home now? was there any power shutdown scheduled? was he late? would she have left for her classes?

With trembling hands in excitement..he connected to InterNet and switched on the web cam.
The moment he saw his 5 year old daughter face appear on the screen..he felt relief for the first time in the whole day. His hand crawled over the monitor..craving for the real touch..

"papa..see..i am wearing the frock you sent me last week in courier...it doesnt fit me on the left side.."
"Sorryma..ask mama to get it altered.."
"po papa..u dnt even know my size.."

Kumar moved away from the camera and silently cried.

Ultimate Farewell mail

Thought of posting on a different topic..but the moment i saw this forward changed my mind...Gem of a disgruntled farewell mail from a guy who seems to have quit JP Morgan just about a week back.... notice the speed at which it has spread across the world :-) total ROTFL...



Dear Co-Workers and Managers,

As many of you probably know, today is my last day. But before I leave, I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know what a great and distinct pleasure it has been to type "Today is my last day."

For nearly as long as I've worked here, I've hoped that I might one day leave this company. And now that this dream has become a reality, please know that I could not have reached this goal without your unending lack of support. Words cannot express my gratitude for the words of gratitude you did not express.

I would especially like to thank all of my managers both past and present but with the exception of the wonderful Saroj Hariprashad: in an age where miscommunication is all too common, you consistently impressed and inspired me with the sheer magnitude of your misinformation, ignorance and intolerance for true talent. It takes a strong man to admit his mistake - it takes a stronger man to attribute his mistake to me.

Over the past seven years, you have taught me more than I could ever ask for and, in most cases, ever did ask for. I have been fortunate enough to work with some absolutely interchangeable supervisors on a wide variety of seemingly identical projects - an invaluable lesson in overcoming daily tedium in overcoming daily tedium in overcoming daily tedium.

Your demands were high and your patience short, but I take great solace knowing that my work was, as stated on my annual review, "meets expectation." That is the type of praise that sends a man home happy after a 10 hour day, smiling his way through half a bottle of meets expectation scotch with a meets expectation cigar. Thanks Trish!

And to most of my peers: even though we barely acknowledged each other within these office walls, I hope that in the future, should we pass on the street, you will regard me the same way as I regard you: sans eye contact.

But to those few souls with whom I've actually interacted, here are my personalized notes of farewell:

To Philip Cress, I will not miss hearing you cry over absolutely nothing while laying blame on me and my coworkers. Your racial comments about Joe Cobbinah were truly offensive and I hope that one day you might gain the strength to apologize to him.

To Brenda Ashby whom is long gone, I hope you find a manager that treats you as poorly as you have treated us. I worked harder for you then any manager in my career and I regret every ounce of it. Watching you take credit for my work was truly demoralizing.

To Sylvia Keenan, you should learn how to keep your mouth shut sweet heart. Bad mouthing the innocent is a negative thing, especially when your talking about someone who knows your disgusting secrets. ; )

To Bob Malvin (Mr. Cronyism Jr), well, I wish you had more of a back bone. You threw me to the wolves with that witch Brenda and I learned all too much from it. I still can't believe that after following your instructions, I ended up getting written up, wow. Thanks for the experience buddy, lesson learned.

Don Merritt (Mr. Cronyism Sr), I'm happy that you were let go in the same manner that you have handed down to my dedicated coworkers. Hearing you on the phone last year brag about how great bonuses were going to be for you fellas in upper management because all of the lay offs made me nearly vomit. I never expected to see management benefit financially from the suffering of scores of people but then again, with this company's rooted history in the slave trade it only makes sense.

To all of the executives of this company, Jamie Dimon and such. Despite working through countless managers that practiced unethical behavior, racism, sexism, jealousy and cronyism, I have benefited tremendously by working here and I truly thank you for that. There was once a time where hard work was rewarded and acknowledged, it's a pity that all of our positive output now falls on deaf ears and passes blind eyes. My advice for you is to place yourself closer to the pulse of this company and enjoy the effort and dedication of us "faceless little people" more. There are many great people that are being over worked and mistreated but yet are still loyal not to those who abuse them but to the greater mission of providing excellent customer support. Find them and embrace them as they will help battle the cancerous plague that is ravishing the moral of this company.

So, in parting, if I could pass on any word of advice to the lower salary recipient ("because it's good for the company") in India or Tampa who will soon be filling my position, it would be to cherish this experience because a job opportunity like this comes along only once in a lifetime.

Meaning: if I had to work here again in this lifetime, I would sooner kill myself.

To those who I have held a great relationship with, I will miss being your co-worker and will cherish our history together. Please don't bother responding as at this very moment I am most likely in my car doing 85 with the windows down listening to Biggie.

One!

For u all, my friends..

One of my fav song...at times u might feel crowded with thoughts even when u r alone and feel lonely in a crowd..whichever be your mood this one should fit your bill...meejic has always been my companion and sila songs feels so gud to hear again n again when u feel down n out...

When you feel all alone
And the world has turned it's back on you
Give me a moment please to tame your wild wild heart
I know you feel like the walls are closing in on you
It's hard to find relief and people can be so cold
When darkness is upon your door and you feel like you can't take anymore

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I'll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You're not alone

When you feel all alone
And a loyal friend is hard to find
You're caught in a one way street
With the monsters in your head
When hopes and dreams are far away and
You feel like you can't face they day

Let me be the one you call -
You're not alone
[Repeat]


Because there has always been heartache and pain
And when it's over you'll breathe again
You'll breathe again

When you feel all alone
And the world has turned its back on you
Give me a moment please
To tame your wild wild heart

Let me be the one you call -
You're not alone [Repeat]

Savage Garden - Crash n Burn...



This is another fundoo track..lyrics kettu asanthuten..for and against topic mathiri..nalathula irukara ketathu and vice versa mathiri poguthu lyrics..sorta depicitng the contradictions in each of us..hope u like this one..

Im the darkness in the light
Im the leftness in the right
Im the rightness in the wrong
Im the shortness in the long
Im the goodness in the bad
Im the saneness in the mad
Im the sadness in the joy
Im the gin in the gin-soaked boy

Im the ghost in the machine
Im the genius in the gene
Im the beauty in the beast
Im the sunset in the east
Im the ruby in the dust
Im the trust in the mistrust
Im the trojan horse in troy
Im the gin in the gin-soaked boy

Im the tigers empty cage
Im the mysterys final page
Im the strangers lonely glance
Im the heros only chance
Im the undiscovered land
Im the single grain of sand
Im the christmas morning toy
Im the gin in the gin-soaked boy

Im the world youll never see
Im the slave youll never free
Im the truth youll never know
Im the place youll never go
Im the sound youll never hear
Im the course youll never steer
Im the will youll not destroy
Im the gin in the gin-soaked boy

Im the half-truth in the lie
Im the why not in the why
Im the last roll of the die
Im the old school in the tie
Im the spirit in the sky
Im the catcher in the rye
Im the twinkle in her eye
Im the jeff goldblum in the fly

Who am i?

நீயாகிய நான்..

idhai padichitu auto sumo edhu anuparatha irunthalum billo barani address tharen avar ootuku anupidunga...intha mari kavidhai ezhutharen pervazhinu istaart pannathu avaruthen..thupara edam ungalukay theriyum..no change in venue...hehehe

உன்னை பற்றி கவிதை வேண்டுமாம்
கவிதையை பற்றி கவிதையா..
உன் சினுங்கள்கள் சிலவற்றை கடன் குடு

ஒரு வரி கவிதையெனில்
உன் பெயர் போதும்

காவியம் வேண்டின்
இருக்கிறார் இல்லையென
ஆத்திக நாத்திகம் பேசுவோர் போல
சந்தேகம் தூண்டும் இடை
இருக்கவே இருக்கிறது

சிற்றுரையெனில்
சிறு விரல் நகம் போதும்

கட்டுரையெனில்
கண்ணிமைகள் போதும்

முன்னுரையாய் முகமிருக்க
முடிவுரையாய் காலிருக்க
பொருலுரை பற்றிய
பொருள் உரை என்றால்
உரைக்கும் பொருளாய்
எதை கூற

கண்டவர் மனதை உரைக்கும்
கண்களைக் கூறவா அல்லது
கேட்போர் மயங்கும் குரலைக் கூறவா

ஒன்னரை அடிக்குறள் கூறியவை சில
நாலரை அடியிலிருந்து வரும் உன் குரல்
கேட்டு ஆயினர் கவிஞர் பல

இரட்டை ரோஜா
மட்டுமே பூக்கும் தோட்டம்
உதடு என உளறுவோரும் உண்டு

இரு கரு வானவில்
புருவம் என புரியாமல்
பேசுவோரும் உண்டு

பல கலை அறிந்த நீ
பல் கலை கழகம் என பகர்ந்தால்
இள நிலை பட்டம் வேண்டி
இளைஞர் கூட்டம் படையெடுத்துவிடும்
முது நிலை மறந்து
முதியவரும் கூடி விடுவர் என்பதால்
அந்த ரகசியம் மட்டும் கூறுவதாயில்லை

நீ..
நான்..

இரட்டை கிளவிகள் நாம்
பிரித்துப்பார்த்தால் பொருள் இல்லை

நீயாகிய நான்..
நானாகிய நீ..

"hey..Uma..naaliku naan,anil,santosh,avan wife ellam movie poroam..u also join us..."
"ilada..naliku konjam vela iruku..nan varala"
"nalla nalayae nee vetti..sunday enna vela..."
"relatives varanga..."
"nee poranthathulenthu avangala pathathey ilaya...ipo enna speciala..kelambi vaadina..scene podra.."
"hey enna di podathanu evlo thadava soliruken.."
"nee matum da solalama..."
"athu ponunga chellama koopdrathu..naan namma mahaluxa kooda da poatu thaan kupduven"

"saniyane...cha ..nerla matuvala...unaku dharmadi podren..vaida fonea..." she cuts the call..
"Machi..Umava naaliku ponu paaka..."

Suddenly ram felt very lonely...he called Santosh...his fone was switched off...however much he tried his mind went back to the times they all spent together..siripu.. sogam..silencenu ellathaiyum enjoy pana antha days...it continued to haunt him...when he met Uma the next day in office..she looked totally different and for the first time in his life he felt he was in love..
"enna Uma..bali ka bakra maaticha illa escapea.." almost willing himself to hear a negative answer...
"therila...paiyan paaka ok....pesi paathu thaan decide pananum...patha udanay epdi ok panrathu"
"nalla naalu varusham pesi pazhagina mattum purinjiduma...apdi patha enna kuda unaku nalu varushama theriyum...athukaga..." he couldnt bring himself to finish the sentence and started laughing..
Uma gave him a silent look and joined the laughter...

Anil met Uma in the canteen..."Enna Uma..kalyana kalai theriyuthay mugathula..matter fixeda..."
"adada..adhukulla ilangai vanolila telecast paniyacha...ilapa...just preliminary stagela than iruku...not yet finalised."
"Pudichirukuna..en delay.."
"me in two minds..."
"two minds or lost ur mind"
"enna solla vara"
"see..i know whats running in you and ram's mind..everyone knows...why dont you folks admit it.."
Uma stared at him for a while .."just now Ram raised this topic..."
"Oh ..he spoke to you is it...what have you decided..."
"Ila Anil..he almost proposed to me..but was laughing...i dont think he is serious..."
"what about you.."
"ok...Anil...you are one person i trust as much as myself..still can you promise me you will keep this with you...ever since i saw Raam..i've been head over heels in love with him...avan kita thappi thavari solidatha...he will tease me to death..but athan fact..first day at office i came directly from station...and was struggling with my bags and other stuff...though there were many people sitting in the lobby..he was the only one to come forward and help...i thought that was sweet...avanoda short temperedness..hi fi sense of humour..en..avan ego kuda enaku pidikum..in a way he was almost like me...whether he likes me...well..athu i doubt..vekkatha vittu solreney..i dropped more than a subtle hint many a time..but avan athellam kandukita mathiriye therila...enga veetlayum pressure..seekram marriage fix panna...so i agreed...ipo pathirukara paiyan veetla ellarukum pudichiruku..en resultkaga waiting..."
"hmm..this matter is to be discussed between you two..i dont want to raise any confusions in your mind..but from what i feel..he also has feelings for you...enaku therinju avan eppovum discuss panra oray gal nee thaan...he always speaks so high of you..nee itha panna ..athu pannanu epovum una pathi than pesuvan...and personally i feel you two make a great pair..its all upto you two folks to decide on how to take this further...and i forgot this conversation"
"thanksda...glad to have you as my friend..."
"anytime for u buddy..anytime"

"hey Ram..ennada solama kolaam resign panita..."asked Anil angrily...
"ilada machan...inga vela paaka mooday ilada..athan.."
"athuku edukuda chennaila paatha..you could have got umpteen jobs here right..Uma US porada..one year project..mostly it will be extended...neeyum kilambara...hmm.enaku thaan bore adikum inimay..."
"oh..enikki pora.."

"therilada...paapoam..i am leaving tonight to chennai..so not sure..."
"okda machi...will meet you sometime...naanum next week chennai varen.."

"HONK!!HONKKK!"....shaken out of reverie Ram started his car...his mind was filled with thoughts of Uma..though initially he had refused to visit her at the airport..he felt like seeing her for one last time before she left...he changed direction and went towards airport...praying that he would make it on time..
He called her to ask where she was..."Uma...enga iruka...checked in?"
"not yet...flight delayed by 3 hours..some problem...so postponed check in by an hour..still got lot of time...
"great..naan inga car parkingla iruken..will catch you in five mins.."
"Vara maatennu nenachen...nee kuda chennaila join panitiyamay"
Raam smiled..."yeah...iniki night train..but cant miss one last chance to tease you..so nera inga vanthuten..anyway carla thaan poren..so no problem..enga yariyum kanum..."
"naan thaan vara venam soliten..if i see them here..i might break down..athaan.."
There was a minutes silence...
"Uma..un kitta onnu sollanum...ipovum solalaina inimay epovumay sola mudiyama poidlam"
She looked at him..
He dint say anything..but one look at his eye...she heard everything he wanted to say...she dropped her bag and hugged him unmindful of the passer bys stares...they cried and laughed uncontrollably..
"Uma..i cant tell you how much i love you...i dint realise how much you have become a part of my life till i came to know that una ponnu paaka varaangannu...i almost missed you..inimayum vida maaten..."
"you know something...antha paiyan sidela ellam ok solitaanga..naan than venamnu soliten...hoping that someday this will happen..infact nee iniki vanthirukalaina i would have proposed to you...seri ipo ticket cancel panitu vanthiren"

After Anils marriage..Ram took a single bedroom apartment for rent and moved in with his parents...one by one all his friends got married...
And their shifts also changed...when Anils wife went for her delivery..Anil came to Ram's place for staying...
"Santosh neeyumvada...we shall have party in my place..varachay nalla DVDya vangitu vada.."
They talked their heads off and were laughing at the time they had when they stayed together...
"machi..u remember that karthi...kanja paya ...namma kuda irukarchay paisa kanaku paapanla..avan wife kuda aniku pathen...ivan avala beauty parlour kooptindu vanthirunthanda..."

"dei...therinji thana katikita..ipo anubavi.."
"Ila Ram Anil solrathu thappu...idelam oru matteray ila..you cant stay alone all your life right...ada oru company kudukavachum aal irupangalla.."
"why you need company man...enna paru...i spend as much time in office as you folks...evening aana i go to squash court...sweat it out...and then gym..swimming...night vanthu full soundla paatu ketukitay dinner...and off to bed...en ishtapatta nerathula thookam and saapadu pudikalina i order pizza...simple..."

The topic drifted again to good old times and soon it was forgotten...

Manram vantha thendral - 1

Echuseme makkas n makkis...Vikatanla chiku bukku thodarnu onu recenta poada arambichirukan..nice read..antha inspirationla kirukinathu thaan intha story..mudicha aprum paatha thaan theriyuthu..as usual..it stretched 1 BPL(beyond one post limit) :D so first installment idho...seekrama padichita second part paste paniduven...

"Hey raam...its already 11.30...you will never make it to the station in this traffic...take the car and go..."
He was feeling glad that he took Anils advice..the traffic at that time was pathetic and he would have never reached city station...The traffic crawled to a halt near Silk board Junction..Humming his favourite song from the latest chartbuster..he switched on the radio..to his surprise exactly the same song was playing and at the same para as the one he was singing...his mind wandered 4 years back.

"Haiyo...Ram...you know this was the same song i was thinking of all day morning and correcta athey song they were playing today morning in cab..." and so went her chatter for the next ten mins on the plus and minus of the song...
"huh..doesnt she ever stop...someone put plaster on her mouth please..."
"raam...summa sollatha...u dont like her?"
"like her? for what? ivala kattika poravan paavam..iva pesarathaketay sevida poiduvan..anga paaru..non stopa pesara..how does she manage to find so much topic to talk??!! even news papers leave space for ads...idhuku breakay ilaya"
Anil laughed and they moved to pantry for coffee...They were both new joinees at that time and happened to stay in the same PG.Soon they became close friends and rented a house for themselves and were sharing the rooms with two other folks from their office. All the four of them were almost inseparable. Though belonging to different shifts and timings they always managed to catch up with each other and weekends were like heaven.Care free life...weeks rolled into months
and soon they all completed their first year in office. To celebrate that Anil arranged for a trip...
"Machan...invite the gals also da..it will be fun if we go as a gang..."
"dei Anil..ivan solratha kekatha...ocla jollu udarathuku trip use panikaran.."
"Ram..unakenda poraama..una oru ponu seenda maatengara..unakum oruthiya pudikathu..iva fat ava egoisticnu list poduva...nanga china pasanga enjoy panitu porom..."
"chinna pasangala..adingu....dei..ennikachum oru naal paru...evalachum vayitha thalikittu veetu vassala inga santosh irukaranu ketukitu vanthu nikka pora..anniki irukudi unaku kutchery.."
"seri seri...Ram..santosh solrathum okva thaan paduthu...muraikatha...ipo naama naalu per pona per head 1500 mela poguthu..thannilaam sekkama...neria per vantha per head cose kurayumla..."
"Anil...ipo than puriyuthu una en ivlo seekram TL aakinaanga...epa saami...enna oru calculationda..."
"ennamo ponga..seri..as usual..wake me up once u guys are done with ur bath..nethey seria thoongala...so naan kadisiya kilambaren"
"ilaati matum...somberi dog..." a pillow fell on his face and was followed by laughter..."
"Dei..dhadiya...elarum kilambiyachu..enthirichi poda...kulikalam venam..face wash panitu kilambi vaada.."
"unoda gal friends varatum..inum konja neram nan thungarennn"
"avangalam vanthu ara mani neram aguthu..seekram kelambuda..vandila thoongika..late aana veyil thaangathu machan..."
"un imsai peria imsaida..." before he could complete...in came Uma..."ada pavi..inum thungariya..bludy dog...nite shift mudichitu thungama naanga vanthirukoam..unuakenada inum thookam..kelmbuda"
Muttering something Ram started...
That was the most enjoyable and memorable trip he ever had...While coming back..they were all damn tired and everyone slept except Ram...he was watching the sceneries outside..
"enna Ravana...thoongalaya?" he turned back to hear Uma chuckling at her joke..
"Ravanana?.."
"aama..kumbagarnananuku annan maari thoongara..apo nee ravanan thana"
He smiled at the joke...
"ada..nee kuda siripia...adhisayam thaan po...cha..i missed the kodak moment..camera ilama poachu.."
"adangu...overa pesara"
"yaaru..naana...do you know whats ur nick name in office...Grumpy..."
"huh..i am close to 6 feet..and you have named me after a dwarf.."
He thought she couldnt pick the joke..and told..."Snow white n 7 dwarfs..."
"halo..engalukum theiryum...schooldaysla naan snow white playla act paniruken.."
"oh nee entha dwarf role play panna....aaah..pisasu en killina..."
"naan thaan snow white role play panen..and i am not short ok.."
"athu antha stoolenthu irangitu solu...chennai busla pona over head hand rest ettuma unaku..."
"overa pesitada..." was followed by another pinch...they started pushing each other and started laughing at their attempts...the converstaion went on...
Uma's place came first and since eveyone else was asleep...Ram got down and helped her with her bags..."Thanksda...Nee paravala..naan nenacha alavu mosam ila " smiled Uma...
"adingu...naaliku office varuvala apo pathukaren."
When he got back into the van Anil was awake..."enna machi..kadala overa..."
"ada pavi nee thungalaiya...seriana bladera antha ponu...."
"bladenu solra...past two hoursa nonstopa aratta adichitu vantheenga rendu perum...apo theirlaya..."
"machi...u know me right..enaku pudichiruntha i would have told directly...and ponungalam imsada...hi byeoda seri...athuku mela pona prachana than"
"paapoam"
