Kathai kathaiyaam kaaranamaam

Kribanantha vaariar mathiri oru genius for storytelling chancelangrathu ennoda kuruthu. Amazing story teller. Chinna chinna kathiagala vachu differentaana anglela yosika vaikaravar. Lateral thinkinga ila nejamavay athan facta theriathu. Still..i love his anecdotes and stories. Sampleku itho..

"Sattiyila iruntha aapaiyilay varum" . Romba familiarana pazhamozhi/statment. Obvious meaning containeray emptya irukarapo epdi karandila varum..athuvum emptya thaana irukum apdingara mathiri vanthalum. Athuku oru interesting kathai irukaam. Oru oorula, oru peria panakaaarar. Neria dhaana dharmam panravar irunthaaram. Avar wife avara vida peria dharmavathayaam. Pasinu varavangaluku sapaadu podama anupavay matangalam. Romba kaalama avangaluku kuzhandhai bagiyam ilama irnuthichaam. Oru samayam avanga veetuku sapda vantha swamigal oruthar sonaram. Murugara vendikitu sashti veratham irunga. Puthira bagyam undaagumnu. Athey pola kantha sashti veratham irunthangalam. Kuzhandhai perum adainthaangalam. Athunala "Sashtiyil (viratham) irunthaal agappaiyil (kuzhandhai) varum" apdinu uruvaacham vaakiyam. Athe solla theriama "Sattiyila iruntha aapaiyilay varum" ithu vanthucha ila originaloda maruva nu therila. Ana epdi pathalum logic irukungarathala rendumay ok.

Lucky : How deep is your love - concluded

12:29:26

You don't worry... I shan't do anything like that if you are uncomfortable..
Thanks a million Harini.. you know how embarassing it can be...
So Aunty knows you huh ?

Ya.. I've been home a couple of times...

Mahesh took you home ?

Ya... why do you ask ?
aise hi...and is your brother married ?Do you have any other sisters ?

Forget Shweta... You tell us where and when did you meet Mahesh first ?
Yeah akka.. Tell us no...

I hope you don't think we are intruding...
No No.. though I am just a little curious about why I am suddenly being questioned...

Nothing to be afraid of.. We are just two curious cats...

Mahesh and I... we met sometime in October just before I went abroad..I used to work in a software firm at that time......I think it was at PVR that we first met..You know that place right ? At The Forum on Hosur Road..

Yeah.. I know....and then how did you become friends ?

He was there with Divya and my best buddy Shiv.. You might be knowing them..
Divya is Mahesh's classmate...
Shiv...Oh he was Harini Akka's friend too in college..
Really ? I did not know that...
we were just in same college..nothing more than that..u tell me ur story...
Nothing...there is no story.. so we got introduced there...and we've been friends since then...

C'mon, there is more to this... We are all part of the same family now..You can tell us...We'll keep your secrets...
Harini, plssssssssss...

Nee summa irudi Shweta......

There are no secrets at all. Neway can I ask some qustions now ?
Of course...but just two questions and we will tell you...

This Mahesh... Was he always a woman's man ? See, he's just been here for 15 mts and he is already flirting with that girl.. Yaar aval ?

Oh... She is Archana...Brinda manni's neighbour's daughter...Avalukku eppovume oru kannu Mahesh mela..
Archana akka is a University basketball player...See how tall she is.. Mahesh anna and she talk a lot about sports...

Is that all you had to ask ?

You haven't answered my question..

See Priya..Mahesh has a lot of women friends but none of them are close.. I mean, its all platonic relationships...Wait....Are you talking of Supriya and Kavya ?
Yes. So you know everyone in Mahesh's life huh ?

You can say that...

Then how come you didn't know about me ?

did u beleive that we dint know u... ?

No undue respect pls...

I don't think you have any competition...Mahesh has never taken any of those women home...
Who was talking about competition ?

I just thought you sounded a trifle insecure.

You are too much Harini. OK..One more question ? I assume you won't discuss any of this with Mahesh...

Of course not... Our lips are sealed

Why does your brother always watch movies from 2 to 6 ? Why this fetish for matinees ? Why does he hate staying out after 6 pm ?

Mahesh hates crowds

....so ?

Priya.. what Shwets means is that Mahesh is not the kinda guy who will go out on a date when the streets are crowded so that he can flaunt his gal or something..He likes his space.. he values his privacy...Besides his point is that since we have come out anyway to watch the movie, how should show timings matter ?...I know thats crazy but thats him..

...but i like my afternoon siesta...party hard till late night...

all the more reason why he prefers matinees coz he feels people waste too much time over the weekends doing nothing...

And what does he do later in the evening ?

Sunday evenings are for football in the TV or snooker at John Uncle's house and Saturday mornings are for cricket..Anna is the fiercely sporty kind...

I know...so idhu dhaan kadhaya?
You speak good Tamil for a Kannadiga..
No No.. We are Thamizh and we speak thamizh at home... basically from Tanjavur...just settled here in Bangalore..
OK
So how long have you been going steady ?
No No.. I am not his girlfriend.. We are just good pals...
Ha Ha Ha
Nejama pa...
Ha Ha Ha
Harini, sirikaadha...Mahesh is coming..

Hey guys. sorry Pri but I got held up... and there's more bad news.. Periappa says no leaving without lunch..Why are giggling, Ajit ?

Onnum illa anna..
hey Harini, I can see that mischiveous gleam in your face.. Been upto your usual tricks ?
i swear..nothing.. You ask your girlfriend, naan onnume pannala...
Lets have lunch... we need to leave...

13:17:13

Why are you so silent ?
Nothing
C'mon, you can tell me. Did my cousins say something wrong ?
Not at all. On the contrary, they were great fun...
Yeah.. though I would not trust that Harini one bit....she is a real devil...
Hmmm
Did you get to meet any of my relatives ?
No
Amma told me she saw you...I am sorry..
Its OK
Aren't we having a very monotonous conversation ?
Yes
Did not know it was the day of monosyllables today..
Sorry...All your cousins think I am your girlfirend...
Is it ?
Thats not much of a reply...
So what do you think ?
I don't think I was ever asked...
Yeh sub poochna padtha hai kya ?
Of course.. why do you have to take everything for granted ?
OK OK.. I adore you...
Is that supposed to be comprehended as "You are my girlfriend"
You should have been a lawyer...
Hmmm..
lets go to your house now..u promised to sit n watch moves with me..
i just wanna sit n relax watching moviefor sumtime.
sure..lady..as u say!

13:22:55

The food was great, wasn't it ?
Awesome it was... the gulab jamun though could have have been more sweeter...
Don't worry... we won't let it happen at our wedding....
Mahesh, you are impossible....
Why ? What is it now ?
Why do you keep doing it all the time ?
Now what......
Wait...let me put it this way...did you just ask me to marry you ?
If you want to put it that way... but I thought you already knew...

I didn't.. In fact, look at it this way... I just heard that you were serious about our realtionship a minute back...
The girlfriend thing ?
Aur kya.. and now you talk about marriage....

I didn't know you were so slow in taking hints..I thought we had passed that stage a long time back...

Women don't know.. they need to be told Mahesh.............

Fine

.......and are there any other suprises in store for me today ?

Now that you mention, I do have a ring in my jeans which I proposed to use later in the evening...

omigawddd.....

...but since we are already there, maybe I should do it now...

No No No.. DON'T....

No what ?

Don't propose..

But why ? You don't like me...

I know you are not going to like this... but hear me out.. I think we are rushing too quickly here.. Waittt.. Its not me.. I know I like u..ur company..u take care of me and i feel good with u and I haven't wanted anything more than this... But I think I don't deserve you...You are way too nice...There are sides to me you haven't seen....I want you to think this through a little more carefully....

Can I make a point here ? Will you give me a little more credit ? Will you please let me decide what I want ?

Don't get angry Mahesh...Can you pls do this for both of us... Can you wait for some more time ? I want you to be crystal clear before you take this huge step..

I am clear even now..
Please....
Fine...
You ok ?
Hmmm
Look at me baba...
Am driving...
Don't sulk baba..
I am not..
If you're not feeling like it, we can ditch the movie..
No...
lets go..let me check wats playing..
btw which movie are we seeing ?
%$#@
Why are you swearing ?
Nothing..
Which movie are they playing????tell me na..

But the entire family is congregating da. Murali mama is coming all the way from Singapore and you can't move your fat ass from BTM to Hebbal....

But you should be attending such get-togethers....

...and what should my answer be ?
Hahaha... You are right.. Whatever you say, I don't get it..so why ask..u r right...
Finally you're seeing some reason...So what plans for today ?
Can we just drop in at that function ? Periamma called and blasted me...Thalai kaamichittu vandhudlaam......

Thank God you finally relented...But I am not appropriately dressed and this is a family affair where I won't fit in so why don't you go ahead and we'll meet later when you're free...

Are you mad ? If you come I'll atleast be able to wriggle out earlier.. Please don't refuse...
Uffff.....fine... let's go....

12:25:28

Amma, Mahesh anna has come...Hello anna, you've become taller...
Hahaha...and so have you Ajit....
Akka kaettiya... anna also thinks I am taller...
He knows anything else will upset you...Stop making a fuss about it Ajit...You'll grow, don't worry...Hello Mahesh...
Hey Shwets, how did the sem exams go ?
Good. Thank you.
Harini enga? Aala kaanum?
Anna, she is in the Store room with Brinda manni arranging the thamboolam packets...
Ajit, how is your tennis coming along ? I told you to come home and borrow my Wilson and you haven't come yet...
No Mahesh... As it is, he wastes so much time with sports..Next year he has his board exams and he has to start now....
There you go, playing typical elder sis....Give him space Shwets.. He'll do fine...

Yeah.. Btw, Mahesh, aren't you gonna introduce your friend to us ?
Ohho... sorry.....Ajit and Shweta, meet Priyadharshini my friend...Pri, Ajit and Shweta are my second cousins...My mom's eldest cousin's kids....

I am no kid...

Hahahaha.. I know you're doing your post grad but you'll always be my kid sis, Shwets...Ah, there comes Harini...

Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii.........Mahesh, eppo vandha ? You've become fat...chaaaaa... no exercise-a ?

Oh pls....and..Harini, meet my friend Priyadharshini...I can see Saambu Uncle coming... Let me go meet him before he sees me... why don't you folks chat up till then...and Harini, no games ok ?

Akka, can we call you Priya ?
Of course Ajit...So you play tennis huh ?
Ya.....Was more regular when we were in Calcutta but ever since we moved last year haven't quite settled down.
No problem.. Mahesh has friends in the Koramangla Club so maybe you can take his help...
He already has...Neway don't let Ajit bore you with his stories.. Why don't you tell us about yourself ? What do you do Priya ?
I work as a fashion designer...I help my brother who runs a garment store....
Wowww.. Very interesting...You're a Bangalorean ?
Yes. Was born here, studied a couple of years in Chennai but everything else has been in Bangalore. I stay in Malleshwaram.
Oh ho..and how do you know Mahesh ?

நம்பிக்கை

பிறத்தலும் இறத்தலும்
உறங்கலும் விழித்தலும்
போமேயாம் என்ற
உண்மையை உணர்ந்தால்
உலகில் ஒரு கவலையும் இல்லை

கவலை என்பது இல்லாமல்
இருக்குமாயின்
கண்ணீர் சுரப்பிகளை
கடவுள் படைத்திருக்கமாட்டார்
சுரக்கும் கண்ணீர்
சோகத்தினாலா சுகத்தினாலா
என்பதை முடிவு செய்வது
கண்களின் பொறுப்பன்று
கடவுளின் செயலுமன்று
இரு கை கொண்டொராயுனும்
அல்லாராயினும்
முக்கிய"கை"யான
நம்பிக்கை உடயோரெனின்
வேரெதும் இல்லாரயினுமவர்
எல்லாம் உடையோரே

உடைவதில்
உருப்பெருவது சிலை
உடைந்து போன கல்லை
எண்ணி அது கலங்குவதில்லை
கால உளி செதுக்கி
காட்சி மாறும் கற்கள் நாம்.
தொலைந்து போன கல்லா
இல்லை உருமாறிய சிலையா
என்பது
நம் மனநிலையில்லுள்ளது
தெய்வம் என்றால் அது தெய்வம்
வெறும் சிலை என்றால் கற்சிலை தான்.

P.S:
intha postukana inspiration prespiration evaporation condensation..elathukum karanam kadisi rendu line. Pazhaya cinema paatula vara lines..apdiye tortoise coil suthi..thoughts engayo poidichi..athan vilaivay intha mokkai :D

சுக்குமி...ளகுதி...ப்பிலியும் அத்திரிபாச்சாவும்

எங்கம்மா, நான் school homeworka எழுதற அழக பார்த்து சொன்ன கதை இது :)

ஒரு ஊருல ஒரு அவசர குடுக்கை இருந்தானாம். எல்லா விஷயத்திலையும் அவசரம். குடுகுடுனு செஞ்சு முடிச்சிடனும்னு வேகவேகமா வேலைய செய்வானாம்..தப்பும் தவறுமா. இப்படித்தான் ஒரு தடவ அவன் அம்மா அவன் கிட்ட, மளிகை சாமான் லிஸ்ட் எழுதித்தரேன் வாங்கிகிட்டு வான்னு சொன்னாங்க. அதுக்கு அவன்,நீ எழுத லேட் ஆகும். அதுனால நானே எழுதிக்கரேன்,நீ சொல்ல மட்டும் சொல்லுனு சொல்லிகிட்டு, கடகடனு எழுத ஆரம்பிச்சானாம்.
லிஸ்ட் ரெடி ஆனதும் ஓட்டமா ஒடி போய் கடைல குடுத்திருக்கான். கடைக்காரன் படிச்சு பாத்துட்டு,ஒன்னும் புரியலன்னு, திருப்பிக்குடுத்துட்டானாம். அப்பிடி என்னதான் எழுதிருக்கான் லிஸ்டுலன்னு பாத்தா

சுக்குமி,ளகுதி,ப்பிலி
அவங்க அம்மா சொன்னது சுக்கு 100GM,மிளகு 100GM,திப்பிலி 100GM. அவசரத்துல சேர்த்து எழுதிட்டுப்போனதுனால இம்புட்டு குழப்பம். என் handwriting எவ்வளவு மோசம்னு இதுலேந்தே தெரிஞ்சிருக்கும் :)

ஞாபக மறதிக்கு ஒரு கதை சொல்லுவாங்க :)

புதுசா கல்யாணமான ஒருத்தன், ஒரு நாள், பட்டு வேட்டி, பட்டு சட்டை போட்டுகிட்டு, அவன் friend வீட்டுக்கு போனானாம். அங்க அவனுக்கு சாப்பிட கொழுக்கட்டை தந்தாங்களாம். first firsta அப்பொ தான் கொழுக்கட்டைய கண்ணால பார்த்த நம்ம ஹீரோ, இது பேர் என்னனு கேட்டு தெரிஞ்சுக்கிட்டு, வீட்டுல போய் wife கிட்ட செய்ய சொல்லலாம்னு, பேர் மறந்திரக்கூடாதேன்னு, வர வழி பூரா "கொழுக்கட்டை" "கொழுக்கட்டை"னு சொல்லிக்கிட்டே வந்தானாம். அவன் நேரம். அப்போ மழை கொட்ட ஆரம்பிச்சிடிச்சி. ஓரமா ஒதுங்கி நின்னாலும், "கொழுக்கட்டை" ஜபத்தை நிறுத்தலை. கொஞ்ச நேரத்துலலாம் மழை விட, வழியெல்லாம் ஒரே சேறு. புது வேட்டி அழுக்காகிடப்போகுதேன்னு, "அத்திரிபாச்சா"னு சொல்லிக்கிட்டே அந்த சேறு தாண்டி வீடு வந்து சேர்ந்த நம்ம ஹீரோ, புது பொண்டாட்டிகிட்ட ஆசையா, எனக்கு என் friend வீட்டுல சாப்பிட தந்த "அத்திரிபாச்சா" disha செஞ்சி தா னு சொல்லி அடம் பிடிக்க, அந்த மாதிரி ஒன்னுமே இல்லைனு wife சொல்ல, சண்டை starts. பஞ்சாயத்து கூடிச்சி. "கொழுக்கட்டை" "அத்திரிபாச்சா" ஆன கதை வெளிச்சத்துக்கு வந்துச்சி :))

Movers n Shakers - concluded

This title should originally be given to the BSE- whose recent dakshinayanan move has shook the nation and has taken many a life.
I confess, me dont've no idea of what stock market is and how BULLs defy gravity and end up licking the boots of BEARs. To me its all Bull and too much to bear. But i always find it interesting to watch the numbers add up and when it reached 21k early this year, everyone became an expert and shares n stock became talk of the day. parama padham mathiri irukara intha velatuku nayayapadi snakes n laddersa than examplea use panirukanum..engenthu kaala maadum karadiyum vanthuchinu therila. Etho..ipo improve agitu varuthunu solranga. Nalla iruntha seri.

Final personality on my "MnS" (;) list is none other than the only World Champion from India. Vishvanathan anand. My first sports hero. Chess velada kathukarathuku munalenthay Anand pathi kelvi patruken. Amazing person. One billion peoploda oray representative at a world level. A true champion. Chess playersna opponentsa hypnotise paniduvanga athu ithunu egapatta myth iruntha timela sirichi sirichay he won not jus the game but millions of hearts across the world. I love the speed with which he plays. And this guy has amazing memory power. Oru interviewla, the interviewer showed him 3 moves from 3 different games, each several decades apart. He picked the games and the players name correctly for each of them. WOW. Sariayana mandai. To quote my title again, he is the original mover and shaker. His moves on the board shook his opponents, which I am sure Kramnik would vouch for. A truly inspiring sports personality who has single handedly inspirted so many people to take up the game of chess.

P.S:

Intha seriesa ithoda stopikaren. Adutha postlenthu usual mokkais thodarum :)

Trivia :)

Two reasons caused a break in the movers n shakers series :)

First one




















To quote like Chandler (Mathew Perry) from F.R.I.E.N.D.S

"Kumble is Humble with a K"
In the era of low cost airlines, true to his name, JUMBO retires from cricket.
The indian scorecard will have a HUGE gap in the bowling section without this name. Ever since i've been following cricket, there are few names like Sachin, Dravid, Kumble...all of which sound as synonymous as bat, ball and wicket. It feels really sad to see them moving out, which they have to and this being the right time as well. ShahRukh once commented about a newcomer on his debut movie- "May your career go through the 4 stages of being a superstar. First people will ask "who is this guy" next they will ask " I want only this guy" thirdly they will ask "get me someone who looks like this guy" and finally they will ask "for a younger version of this guy". Guess it will apply to the bowling superstar as well. From an almost anonymous entry (i still remember the series where i couldnt make out between kambli and kumble :) ) he has become a role model and a true pathbreaking phenomenon. Gud luck Kumbles..hope to see u soon.

P.S:
oru curious thought. Actually this post was meant to publish this one, but mr.kumble announced his retirement in an unannounced manner :) Well here it is.

OBAMA almost sounds like OSAMA and BINLADEN abbreviates to BIDEN, his running mate!!!
Paranoid gils or interesting trivia??!! ;))

Movers n Shakers - 2

This post is about a bunch of people under the misguided influence of a till-recently-nonentity of a person. Actually the title, fits them to a T. They moved and shoved and shook things and people alike, around them, to catapult into lime light. The MNS. Phonetically the name of their group is more accurate in Tamil where it reads "YEMANS".

For those who werent born under the British rule, feel no worries. Except for the colour of the skin, the practices followed 2 centuries back still holds good and lo behold..we are still in the days of the Raj!! Even a child will know how fragile the is the thread called unity in diversity. You dont need a hacksaw to tore it to shreds when mere words harshly spelt can mean doom. If you thought so, well the former is the way in which the MN(ui)S(ance) have been dealing with the issue of mumbaikars vs non-mumbaikars.

Indian history has seen the term immigrants being etched with blood and gore ever since it saw independence. But I think for the first time natives are being termed as immigrants. The worst part is the attitude of the local government, with obviously vested interests akin to the policy of appeasement by the Allies during WWII. History has always been a funny subject. People never bother to learn from the mistakes commited by others and always end up reinventing the "wrong" wheel.

Its really sad to read about the plight of our fellow Indians and the kind of hardships they undergo in phoren land just for the sake of money. Its unbelievably pathetic to imagine a much worse plight in their own land. Infact that raises the most disturbing question of all times, How Indian are we? Take the case of states fighting over water, border and "illegal" immigrants already multi divided by language. For a person totally strange to India, he might think these are individual countries. Now where is the question of unity with all these infighting??!! Its becoming a farce nowadays with the secessionists holding fort everywhere.

No one can suggest a 10 point programme and get this all rectified in a day's time. But for starters let there be a limit on the number of political parties. I am not sure how this can be implemented. May be one can take a stat of how a so called national/regional party has polled votes in past 20 years or say ten elections and can have a ceiling on the minimal percentage of votes they should have secured to retain their outfit. We hardly vote. Bitter fact. Even with such small percentage of people voting, if a party hardly gets any vote year after year and election after election, isnt it proof enough that the people are rejecting it. There should be even tighter restriction on so called "Fiery" speeches and news channels who bray non stop on their "exclusives" about these speeches should get their licenses revoked. May be we can get a new clause added to consumer act in relation with the news channels. If its misleading or found untrue, the channels should be banned for fanning voilence.

Its really moving and one cant help shaking with sadness on seeing the plight of daily bread winners, who throng cities, not for minting millions but just for a decent meal a day. Next time when you go onsite/abroad spaer a moment or two about these people. I think you will understand.
