Shocking Truth

I was having the feeling that the girl in Banaglore enjoys the freedom more than the girls in the other part of the country. In the sense of freedom in anything and everything they need. But today’s TOI gave me brutal shock to see a BPO girl was raped and murdered by the cab driver on the way to her work.

The gap between the people in the society increased a lot. Socializing is more common with the IT people. But that is not so common with the other people. So we need to know how to behave in various section and we have to use our common sense more often.

En Kanitham

Ithu ennoda maths illa... I am talking about Numerology... People are going crazy about this. Even I am wearing a ring with number 77. I don't know the reason but still I am wearing this because this was gifted by my uncle (1 pavun ithu, athuthaan nijam). Recently, my friend has been promoted as mom to a baby girl.

When I vistied to her home, she was asking about the names start with "S". I gave many names and one of the name is "Shanmathi". She immediately rejected as "thi" (fire) is there in the name and also she explained few important points about numerology.

My thought: Name should be easy to spell (athukkaka valai palam nnu vai nnu senthil-kavundamani kanakka pesa koodathu) as well as you should feel good when you are spelling the name. Let me see what I will do for my baby. (Don't think that I am going to get married soon)

Ponniyin Selvan

Patti asked to me the complete Ponniyin Selvan as our copy at home is not at good shape. Hence I thought of buying the hard bound and went to land mark shop in Bangalore. They told they running out of stock (only the first part) and I pre ordered the book and I gave my number. I got a call after a month but before I reached some other Tamil kudithangi grabbed the book on my name. Now I have to wait again.

Makkal muthal pagam mattum vangittu poranga... Just for show or they really reading it???

Muthan Muthalai...

Thulli Thirintha kalam, autograph, alagi nnu ethavathu eluthalamnu partha onnume nadakkala valkkaila...

I worked hard for the past 10 days ( before that, hardly worked) and the Kavingar kathu vayan within me opened his eyes. Kanna pinnanu kotti thalittan... samples are below:

Udambu sari illa pappu
ethikkittu varatta konjam mappu...

Polamnu nenachene sivakasikku
Vara sollitane officekku...

Is it Deepavali or Deebavali or Diwali? Anyway, It was a good time with relatives and crackers. We don't have any time restriction in my place to fire the crackers. My cousins came to my house and they promptly started the fireworks at 00:00 AM. The whole village woke up because of us.

Usually, all the cracker shops and sweet stalls witness the mad rush. But this year for a change theTASMAC did a tremendous business on Deebavalil day. I heard that the sales are increased five fold on that day. Even it was quoated in Dinamalar.

One more thing I have noticed was the amount of crackers we bought was less compared to our previuos years. Infact we bought the crackers for the same amount as we bought 3 years back. But still there were few crackers left unfinished. I think that is due to the TV and we went to almost all our neighbours house to chat as we are gathering after 2 years.

Friday is a colorfull day in our company. All the people trying to come in a realxed manner and dress all the possible manner in the world to impress. (both guys and girls).

Today one guy is wearing 80 Rod Smith (wide reciever, Denver Broncos). Even though I am not familiar with that guy I asked few questions:

Udhay: Are you a Smith fan?
Mr.x: Yes, 80 Robin Smith.
Udhay: (puzzled by the answer) Are you a Broncos fan?
Mr.x: Who is Broncos?
Udhay: (hah, I got the answer to the puzzle) Broncos is one of the NFL team in America and they are from Denver
Mr.x: Oh really! I didn't know that.
Udhay: I asked that question because you said that you are Smith's fan.
Mr.x: NO! I bought this T-Shirt because of the color and the brand (Reebok). I don't have any idea about NFL! Now I can tell this to the people who asks this question. Thanks for the update.

Mr.x is really cool, isn't it?

In my floor, one guy is wearing 98 in the back of the T-Shirt. I noticed this in the morning itself. But after the above interaction I went to that guy to find out the reason (whether the brand and the color or the phenotic)

Udhay: Hey, What is 98? Is there any significance?
Mr.Y: Shame Udhay! This is Ganguly's number.
Udhay: Sorry, I didn't know that. Well, Are you Gang fan?
Mr.Y: Hell NO!!!
Udhay: Then you are wearing this T-Shirt because of the color and the brand.
Mr.Y: You are exactly correct!

Here comes the next. I have seen a girl wearing the T-shirt with the following sentence "Are you looking for my Brain? It is not there". I thought of asking "Babe, I know that Brain is there only in the head and not meant to be there in the place where the sentence written". I didn't ask this question to her as it will lead to Anti Sexual Harassment and the further complication. Appuram eppadi blog update pannarathu ;-)

Now, Read the first sentence again.

Kai Raasi

I don't know you people believing this or not I have to believe this. If some people start anything it will always go good. My Grand ma is the first kai raasi pa(a)(r)ty I met. If I am down with feaver in my school days she is the one who is giving me the "vibhuthi" in packet and ask me to keep under the pillow. I don't know about the kind of medicine the doctors given to me but still I believe the "vibhuthi" in packet saved me.

I know a doctor called Ashokkumar, running a clinic (Jaya Clinic) in Jaya Nagar 9th block. He was referred by our house owner in june 2002 when I was fell in feaver. That time, the aunty told he is "Kai Raasi" doctor and no need to worry. Then I immediately reached the clinic which is very close to our house and I got the token number 40. Believe me, that clinic is not a hi-fi clinic. Just one room extra other than the doctor's room. No reception, no computer nothing. Numbers are written on the cardboard sheets which is known as token.

As it was taking long time, I came back home. I got my turn only at 9:30 PM. I spoke with doctor in tamil. He asked some basic questions and he examined me for 2 minutes. He told it is a very ordinary feaver. An injection and few medicines will bring it down. He asked 20/- as the fees.

As he mentioned, the next day I was alright. But I didn't believe the "Kai Raasi" matter. After a few weeks one of my friend also fell in sick and we went to the same doctor. Believe me, he told the same sentences he told me before and the same injection, same tablets. Again, my friend totally cured by next day.

After some time we went for throat infection, cough etc but the doctor and the tablets never changed. Even the fees. The same 20/- .

I again went to that clinic for feaver on Thursday(10/20). I was not able to speak, not able to walk, loosing patience and I was so dull. I am the only person changed after 2 years. Again, the same medicine, tablet but the fees is now 50/-. The next day we were discussing about some issue and suddenly my friends realized my voice came to normal and I am very normal again.

Now, I have to believe the "Kai Raasi" matter.

Few Questions

I went to Palani temple in the first week of August and few questions came in to my mind and shared the same with writer Sujatha. But I didn't get any reply from him.

Following are the questions:

1. People were saying something and they told it is the “Ithegam”. What is the meaning of “Ithegam”? We are following some rituals without questioning the origin of it. Is it the meaning?
2. “Bogar Samadhi” is there inside the temple and there is a story that after Bogar went in to that cave he didn’t come back. Is anybody tried to get inside the cave and seen what is inside? Or we, the Hindus not ready for the debates which will come after the excavation if there is any cave?
3. There are lots of poets in Tamil started creating the poems after some extraordinary incidence (like Manika vasagar, Gana Sampanthar). Even though we are having the poems why don’t we have a solid proof to show case the immense presence of our gods to the world?

I am eagerly waiting for your comments.

My Interview

Thought of posting my personal interview with myself! Looking awkward, correct? This is just a bit of myself to help the readers who don't know me before.

Where were you born and brought up?
Precisely, Born in Hospital and brought up at Home ;-)
Jokes apart, born and brought up at Pattakkaran Palayam, (spell it correctly in the first try and get a chocolate from me) a village near Erode in Tamiil Nadu. Pattakkaran Palayam is now neither a village nor a town. It is grown up much due to the Cotton Industries in and around.

Tell us about your educational background?
I did my early days of schooling in CSI School in Pattakkaran Palayam and Government Middle school in Seenapuram. Till my higher secondary, at the Government Boys Higher Secondary School at Perundurai. My college education was at Government College of Technology, Coimbatore – in Production Technology (1997-2001).

Who is your favourite actor and actress? Which is your favourite movie?
Undoubtedly, Rajni is my all time favourite actor. Actresses, well, I change loyalty often, so I would just say it ranges from Trisha to Beyonce (and beyond!). Lord of the Rings is my favourite English movie (trilogy) and Thalapathi (Rajni) is my favourite Tamil movie.

What are your hobbies?
Travel, movies, music, sports, roaming pointlessly with friends…

What are you doing for your bread?
A software company in Bangalore is paying me for my bread and butter. Also they are paying me to sit in their office to browse and post the junk in the internet!
