To meet and part is the way of life..
To part and meet is the hope of life...

"Hi mams..hi Raams..
"hida guna"
"engada..namma rishi payala kaanum..."
"Avan ipolam namala enda kandukaporan..avan girlfrienda kootikitu edho hindi padam poraanam"
"enna koduma saar ithu..taaray zaameen par nu sonna...roadla taar oothanumaanu kekara alavula thaana avan hindi...ivan hindi padam poraana.."

"machis..relax...en adichakareenga...girls are like discount sales..however early u move in.. the good ones are already taken...so no tension"
"dei...matter theriyuma namma balaku marriage fix aagirukuda....en kita kuda solala avan...avanga veetuku poirunthapo avan ila..apo avanga amma pesitrunthanga"
"aaha..indiala bala vivah crime aachayda..avanga veetla theriyatho?"
"dei mokka bladeu..summa iruda...avana solrana papom"
At lunch time..Bala came..
"ennada bala..ponnu mathiri vazhiyara..kaalala kolam podra..ennada matter...ethachum pickup aaidicha?"
"machis...oru news iruku..unga kita epdi solrathunu therila..well..enaku veetla ponnu pathirukanga...sonthathula...avanga sidela perusu onnu mandaya podra mathiri irukarathala..college mudinjaprum vachiruka vendiatha munnaidye vaikaratha decide panitanga..neengalam kandipa varanum"
"freeya kudutha phenol kuda kudikara gumbal ithu...full meals kudutha venamna sola porom.."

Enga final year examsku munnadi kadisia naanga ellarum onna attend panna event athan..soon after that each one was busy searching fo projects and placements we hardly had time to get together and meet. Enga princy sonnathoda artham anniki thaan purinjuthu. We all had a final meet before the week when the break started for the exams.
Usualla..kalakalanu irukara enga gang anniki semma silent..yarumay pesala..ellar mugathulayum oru sogam...
"machi..examsku leave potrulamnu irukenda..arrears irukara sakula college vantu polamla..."
"ipdi madathanam yosikarthula una adichika aalay kedayathu guna..ethana thdava arrears ezhuthuva athuvum ellarum una mathiri weight party ila machi...placement nambi than pozhapay iruku'
"ennada thideernu statuslam izhukareenga..."
"hold on hold on..wait...intha hour inimay namaku thirumba kedaikathuda...en adichikareenga...intha last one monthalye therinjiruchi..veli ulagam nammla enna pana poguthunu..we hardly had time to meet..ungalalaam paakama pesama ennamo mathiri irunthalum...thidernu vayasana mathiri irukuda...family resposibilitynu ithanala verum vaarthaiya ketathoda artham ipo than puriyuthu...bala casela inum tough..he already has his own family...he should hit the ground running..innum 1 or 2 year kazhichi...elarum enga iruka poromo..epdi iruka poromo...aana nalla positionla kandipa irupomnu enaku nambikka iruku...lets take a pledge..atleast once in a month we should all meet and have fun.."
We all murmured our agreement..
"dei...inada athukula enamo alvida solitu pirinjita mathiri pose kudukareenga...picture inum mudila kanungala...adutha varam exam ozhunga mudikara
vazhiya papom..all the best to all of us..."

"Dei..Ram...rishi enanmo solitu poitanda..enaku aana yosichukuda paaka mudila...namma college life ivlo seekram mudiya poratha nenacha romba kashtama irukuda..infact enaku intha campus vitu velila poga bayama iruku..vela kedaikkuma...enala en family repsonsibilitiesla handle panna mudiyumanu yosicha thookamay vara matenguthu..."
"Kavalapadatha machi..elarukum athey case than..enna nee solita velila...micha per solalla...doesnt mean rest are any courageous...ellam nalla nadakumda...dont worry...innum pathu varusham kazhichi..ethachum MNCla manager postla irunthu itha yosicihi nee sirichikitu irupa...engalam apo nyabgam vachika..."
"Shiva ipo irunthiruntha avanay namakellam vela poatu kuduthirupanla.."
For a moment it felt as if someone twitched the innards of my stomach...i was at a loss for words...we left silently..

Exams got over and we were asked to check for our result in the web..kadisiya nanga ellarum meet panna venue net cafe..
Danny and Guna came early and were checking results...
"OR pass..Real analysis Pass..Dynamics through...Stats through...sozhar kulathil oru Under graduate...nagaraja sozhan B.Sc vaazhganu ipovay gosham kekuthay...."
"vaada Ram...machi..naama ellarum pass.."
"enna machi ipdi solita..arrears ilama pass panitia.nalla paruda...usualla oru numberla miss aaidichinu lottery ticket mathiri solva..."
"dei kalaikathada..enakay avamaanama iruku...revaluation kekalaamnu iruken.."
That was the last meet which all of us attended...Rishi left early telling he had some interview to catch up. The realisaion that things are not going to be same anymore was hard hitting..

Inniyoda ten years aachu..enga examslam mudinju..everyone got settled in good jobs..monthly once sonna meeting konjam konjama adjourn aagi..yearly once aagi..for past few years we werent even in touch..Rishiyoda marriagela sila per meet pannen..appo collect panna informationlam vachu...we decided to have a meet to celebrate a decade of our friendship..and luckily it coincided with our college anniversary celebrations...lifela evlo friends vanthalum ponalum college friends epovumay special thaan...adolescent agelenthu teen enter aagi adulta maarara antha timela form aagara relationshipsoda strength ella relationsa vida strong..entha ethirpaarpum illama relation...uyarvu thazhu..religion...language...ithu ethuvum ilama friendnugara categoryla adaipadra andtha sugam...hmmm...ethana kaalam aanalum kasakathu....intha meetukum yarla varaporanga..yarala vara mudiyama poga poguthu...no idea...but we will definitely try to meet and relive those happy days...starting now to meet my pals..see you folks...

Happy days...part IV

Whenever we all regrouped after our holidays..the first day used to be the happiest..most of us went to our natives and were mostly in touch only thorugh
mails and calls. The day the college reopens used to be the joyous of all and the entire day will go in describing what each one did during the break..the
movies we saw and so on...its something which cannot be expressed in words..apdi oru happiness..bubbling enthu..antha paritcular timela enna venumnalaum saadichiralamnu oru ennam...naanga ellarum onnungara feeling...namakkaga ithana per irukaanga perumitham...ipdi solikitay pogalam...firstday was declared holiday in memory of Shiv...The loss of shiv was something which we were unable to digest..We were all silent for a moment..to change the topic Rishi said..
"hey..you know something...namma classuku oru transfer student varan...from banglore..MM sir solitruntharu.."
"epolenthuda antha aal classlam gavanika arambicha..enna nadakuthuda namma gangla..yaro sooniyam vachitanga..MM classlam rishi gavanikarana enakenamo bayama iruku...dei rishi..ethachum prachanaina ipovay soluda.."
Guna said.."suicide pannika simple ana vazhi neria iruku...athukaga MM classlam attend pannatha.."
"aamada suicide for dummiesnu Guna book kuda potrukanna paren...athula practical sessions vera irukaam...ivanay try panni pathu workout aanatha matum thaan athula include panirukennu sonaan"..
"aamada...enaku vara friday leave kedacha nalla irukum..so thursdayva paathu suicide panikada..inoru naal leave kedaikum..."
We all burst out laughing..
The usually cool Sridhar couldnt contol his feelings..
"ennada friends neengalam...oruthanoda death ungaluku comedya poacha...enda oru naal leave unaku rendu varusha friendshipavida perusa poacha...."
"dei..nee mattum ennamo feel panramathiryum naangalam atha nenachu sandhoshama irukaramathiryum pesara..inum ethan naaliku thaana atheye nenachukitu irkarathu...avan incident namaku oru lesson..on what not to do..avanoda career aspirations is also a lesson..on what we could do to earn while we learn..."
"epdida...of all the people...how can he be...he be...such a coward..i thought he was the best of the lot..street smart and worldlywise...ipdi madathanam
panitanayda"
"dei..cowardnu solatha..u need to be very brave to face death.."
"SHUTUP...dont justify his foolishness...what did he achieve with his death...ivan sethutathala antha ponna ivan jeyichitannu arthama?..parents pathi yosichana..ithana naala kudavay irukom namma kita intha mathiri prachana irukunu oru vartha sonana.."
"right from start he was sort of silent about his deeds..he always wanted to win and whatever he tried came up trumps..avanoda first defeatay kadisiya poiduthu..."

The newcomer to our class..was silently watching all this..he came up in front and stood before us..there was an awkward pause..
"ungalalam paatha poramaiya iruku...hostel life...independence..thaniya irukeenga..nalla enjoy panreenga..kekka aal ilama unga decisions neengala edukarenga..night wardenku theriyama compound vitu escape aagi adathukuporathu..oora sutharathunu jollya irukenga....veeta vitu thania irunthalum...ungalukulla irukara bonding...atha paatha evlo poramaiya iruku theiryuma...athuvum ..."

"hold on..innum introvay agala..athukulara intervaluku vanthacha...nee yaru rasa...per oora pathilam sollu"
"sorry machis..my mistake..ivan per bala..en school mate...bangalorela padichitrunthaan..anga etho problemnu.. transfer vangitu inga vanthutan..."
"ok...mr.bala..intha gangla member aaga sila ruleslam iruku..first we have to check your qualification.."

Kalloori...Happy days with a sad ending

Ipadiyum padam edukaravanga irukka thaan seiyaranga....i like issue based movies especially if they come up with nice screenplay...this is one such movie which has been so impressive...if there is an oscar for the most hard hittting climax this movie will win it hands down...i had read the review in papers and seen it in some tv channels...but still i feel this movie hasnt deserved the kind of attention it should have gathered...ending ennanu therinju pakkum boathay it leaves such an impact in you...i wonder what would people have felt when they saw it the first time...smootha poitrukara vandila lighta accleration kuduthu..konjam speed pick up panni...vandi parakara stage varachay theedernu kurukavara speed breaker mathiriyana climax...padam paathu half hour agiyum inum disturb panuthu...balaji sakthivelku venumna advancea rendu national award kuduthiralam adutha padamachum happy endinga vaika solanum..manasa pesaiyara mathiriyana ending.. rendu padam..back to back..pothum mr.sakthivel...adutha padam kandipa ithey mathiri intensityoda oru nalla happy endinga pathu seiyunga...Happy daysnu naan en collegela nadantha koothelam poatu kathai thirichu en college daysa happya nenachu pakarachay ivar intha mathiri oru incidenta padama poatu manasa kuzhapitaru..still one thing which bothers me is how come college students havent come up in support of this movie..political pressurea irukumo? perusa onum promos kaanala..maybe shankar would've felt scared of promoting this movie on the scales of his mudhalvan?? athaan kathaiyavay andhrala mudiyara mathiri maathi ushaara escape aagitaangalo? these were the questions which troubles after seeing the movie...purposea flop aakapatta padam pola iruku...this is one movie which cannot flop..and cannot afford to also..considering the message with which it comes...dharmapuri bus burning incident..ella news channelayum kettu kettu..athu oru non issueva aaidichi..aana athula uyiroda erinja antha moonu ponunga...avanga kathai ennava iruthirukum..avanga love paniruntha...avanga ambitions..avanga prachanigal..avanga background..ipdi backtrack panirunthu kathaiya soliruntha documentary mathiri agirukum..what the director does is..he takes the story from quite a distance backwards and weaves a tale so normal and peaceful that you feel as if you are sitting with those students in college..enjoying their comments..their happiness their fights...and by the time the climax happens..you almost will urself for the love story to begin and are fooled into thinking this as just another teen romance story...somehow i feel..the director could have trimmed the culturals portion a bit and concentrated more on the climax...before it could cause a major impact..the movie is over..maybe he really did had a decent time for it and the censors scissored it out..its GOK..hmmm..i never watch tear jerkers or sad movies...this is one movie which i am glad i didnt miss out...if you are game for some really good tamil movie give it a try....it has decent music...laafable realistic comedy...utterly believable people next door characters..and a really gud story...you wont regret it...ithana sollitu padathula nadichavanga pathi solalailana thapuliya...heroine tamanna...ennatha solrathu..onnu sure..entha collegela intha mathiri ponnu iruthirunthalum kandipa proposal puyal adichirukum avlo decent..and gud looking also..micha pasangalam actorsnu sonna thappaidum avlo normala easya padam muzhuka varanga..hard to believe they are first timers..music is pretty decent and its more enjoyable with the picturisation...aana konjam lengthya irukara mathiri feeling..each song runs for min 6 mins..comdeynu thaniya ilama padathoda varuthu romba natural..enna vitta suhasini madhan ellar roleyum sethu comment panitay poven..pesama poi padatha parunga.pathutu vanthu commentunga...ipotahiaku appeet...

Stars shine down..

Have u ever felt sad..happy..depressed and elated at the same time...Taare zameen par
music does that to u...i thought i would never hear a betterly penned song than the title song of Kal ho Na ho till i listened upon this album...each song is a gem of its own...my personal fav.s are the "ma" song and the one by adnan sami...watta music..wen adnan lifts his voice to high pitch u also feel like flying along with the tempo...awesome lyrics..though i dnt like movies which are tear jerkers..guess i can give this one a try sheerly for the songs and their picturisation...especially the 'Ma' song...i am not a pandit in hindi..u need not be one too to enjoy the song..to soak in the emotions it raises in u...anyone can feel identified with
that song and the situation and the feelings conveyed in that...guess all of us have been moms fav. at one point of time or other in our lives..the song is so simple yet so poignant when u see the picturisation it almost moves u in tears..shankar mahadevans voice is another big plus..i still feel sonu nigam would have mesmerised us even more for this one.."bhum bhum bole" song is a real loosner in this otherwise emotion packed album..i also happned to see the movie before i could finish off this post..well..this is one movie which you cant say is a "OK" movie without people frowning upon you..its something like all 100's are special especially those made by sachin ;)..this movie as claimed by many is surely not for kids and is sheerly for adults..at times its too melodramatic..almost like DD awareness campaigns..but most part of the movie is like candid camera..u wud hardly realise that folks are acting except for the portions were aamir pitches in..and to think that this is his first movie..wow man..it wud be really interesting to know the thot process behind this movie..the kid who plays the lead character is simply awesome..not overdoing..and not underplaying either..perfectly in synch of being an out of synch kid..there is a scene where aamir lists out famous people with dyslexia..the reaction by the kid preparing himself to be called up before everyone is sheer class..somehow cinema looks gud when perfectly normal emotions are expressed in perfectly normal way...but how long can such movies sustain is GOK...this movie has been running packed houses mainly due to the favourable reviews it has got and thru word-of-mouth free publicity..if u are someone who goes to movies just to have a laaf and for brainless comedies this is not one for u...its an almost realistic at times honest attempt to capture the trauma of a normal kid..may be since it reminds of my own childhood enaku avlo interstinga ila nenakaren...but songs..WOW..awesome...ethana thadava
venumnalum kekalam...padam..hmmm..makes u moody...

Happy days...part III

Don't walk behind me..
i may not lead
Don't walk ahead of me...
i may not follow
Just walk beside me..
and be my friend.

"Look at her.. walking down the aisle..in all glory...if only that guy next to her is her dad..i will take her to be my bride in real.."
"hey...but avaluku erkanavay kalyanam aaidichida"
"athunala enna...naan avaloda chinna veeda poidren..."

Rishi was reading through the novel written by Danny..
"Dei..enna kodumada ithu...intha story title enna.."
"Bride and subjudice.." said Danny with a smile...
"machaan..ithey rangela ezhuthitay iruda....un imasai thangama en tharkolaiku ivan thaan karanamnu letter ezhuthi vachitu evanachum mandayapoda poran...oru naal ila oru naal kola kuthathukaga una police pudichitu poga poguthu..."

Each one of us were so happy that we felt we ourselves had bought the car..we were jumping with joy arguing on where to go for treat..that day was the happiest day of our college life..we dragged shiva to canteen...poured coke on him..painted his face with cakes and even the staff in canteen joined the fun when they heard the news...shiv was the hero of that day...

"shiva engada kanum..as usual attendance poda poitana?"
"dei ipolam attendance ilada..classay edukaran avan...katha engayo pouguthu..."
"nalla iruntha sari..."

Shiv didnt came to class that day..Evening also he didnt came to the meeting place. we waited for him..chatted away the time and decided on what punishment he deserved the next day for fooling all of us. Even the usually calm Danny was also angry. "what the heck he thinks of himself..calling all of us and making a fool of us...if he is not coming..atleast he could've told us..."
I felt very strange. It was totally unlike Shiv to have done like that. "Vidungada..avanaku enna problemo.."
"dei..nee eppoparu support panikitay iru...unaku soranaye kedayatha..i called him before u only right..he is not even picking the fone..apdi enanda scene..seri..i dont want to waste time waiting for him anymore..u coming with me? i will drop you home on the way..naaliku iruku avanku.."
The next day also came..But Shiv didnt..Anger turned into concern and we decided to visit him at his house. Guna was staying close to his place and we all went with him. The scene we saw got branded into our hearts for the rest of our life. The first person to talk to us was Shiv's dad..
"Ipdi panitanaypa...unga kita ethachum sonnana.."..
The rest was all a blur...we mumbled our condolences and poured out from that place..we were so shocked we felt numb..we didnt even knew how to react and it took a while to comprehend the truth that Shiv wouldnt be with us anymore..
He was the first to get a job in our gang...he was the first to buy his own car..he was the first , we thought, will settle in his life...but that he would end up being the first to depart from this world we didnt imagine even in our dream...
That was the first brushup with death for almost all of us...it shook us out of our dreams..overnight our world turned upside down.
