Oct 14, 2008

Heavy rains, unknown lonely road, night time....

I was in such a situation today. Not alone though, Divya was with me. The funny two of us.

With a vision of munnaerifying in life and to prepare for a valid answer to the often asked koshtine 'enna kizichcha today?', we walked along the ECR. Finding the place was not easy.. Pawn broker shop was our landmark. Divs found it.. yaay! After entering a kurukku sandhu and before reaching a muttu sandhu, we found the place.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! Started back home. (Don't worry divvy I'm not writing about you falling down near the gate. Adhdhan naan pudichutaen la..)

'We'll find a short cut', Div told. Went straight, turned left, wait! thats all I remember. Then we got distracted. Divs called T to know whether any 'better options' are available. I called up S to ask him to come and 'aikiyamaagify in our jothi'.

I thought Divs knew the way back home. Doubt lighta yetti paathuchu when she took a left turn just because there was a dog standing on the road turning right. Then later it got confirmed! She too dint know the way.

It started raining. No where to go. No shade to stand in. Then we found a tree. The area created a dhigil atmosphere.

'Aiyaiyo!', suddenly a voice from behind.
I almost died of fear. A lady was standing behind us, complaining about the rain. How come she came there suddenly?
'May be its a ghost!', I thought.
Din't tell div.. din't wanna scare her. She would run away, as she did during our school days. But that was just a dog.. no no a puppy. Adhukae pichchukittu odita. NO, I'm not telling her. But she too got scared on seeing that lady, could read it from her face. We decided its better to start walking instead of standing there with that ghosty aunty.

The road, like any other road in India, had pools everywhere. Already drenched, now this car kaaran came in full speed and splashed water on us.
'Yaaai', I shouted and the car stopped.
'Pochu pochu, he is gonna scold', Divs told.
But the car left.
'Why did you shout?'
'Oh did I shout? I din't realise it. Thaana vanduruchu..'
'Din't you get scared when the car stopped?'
'Cha cha... It was his mistake. Not ours. Why should we be afraid?!', I told with all the geththu I could show on my face. Actually was damn scared! Yes I was!!

Why din't he slow down the car while crossing us. Too bad! I remembered 'Kaadhal sadugudu' movie. Vikram did it, why can't this guy. May be he would have.. if the gals were a bit more beautiful... sob sob! Seri freeya vidu!

Still walking.. clueless about the way. My slippery slippers added up to the comedy.

Atlast found a familiar road. I was polambhifying about the archanais I'll be getting at home and Div was also doing the same.

Reached home praying that mom should not have come. Yaay! Mom was home.. I love my luck! Hell with it!

Blah blah blahh.. et al. Matter over.

Mobile ae pirichchu potu drying it.
Thought of keeping the wet money in oven like in 'Nala Damayanthi' movie. Mom is at home.. will try it some other day.

Typing all this now.. with the satisfaction of kizhichufying something today other than just the calender date.

No Smoking

A good move by our Union Health Minister Dr.Anbumani Ramadoss. Smoking in public places is banned from october2, Mahatma Gandhi's birth anniversary.

I really get irritated when someone smokes in public places. I hate the smell.. If at all you wanna smoke, don't let the smoke out. Second-hand smoking is injurious to health too. If I wanna smoke I can buy a cigarette myself. No thank you, Keep your smoke with yourself.

Temporary exposure to smoke may cause less permanent harm, symptoms like headaches, breathing difficulties, and even nausea. Exposure to smoke over longer periods of time can cause cancer to heart disease.

The evidence is quite solid that inhaling smoke has numerous long-term and short-term consequences for bystanders who, for the most part, are “innocent.”

“Smokers can have a puff at the risk of their health in private in their bedrooms provided they had the permission of their wives,” Ramadoss said

From tomorrow, if I see someone smoking in public then without any hesitation I'll complain about them to police kaar! Be careful smokers!!

Oram Po

Not the movie..

I wanted to yell 'Oram Po' to the MTC bus driver today. Why the heck can't people give way to ambulance. Do we need law even for this?

In the ambulance I could see a guy(about my age) sitting next to the driver's seat. He was panicking.. the patient must be someone very close to him. Even after hearing the siren of the ambulance, the bus driver din't care to give way.

Its gone! :(

Whats gone? My interest in blogging?

Naaah... Its been ten days since I posted in my blog. But that doesn't mean that I've lost interest. Just that I was a little bit busy.. Yeah! Believe me.. though I din't do anything useful, I din't have time to write.

Spent most of the time with friends.. putting mokka, pulling legs, all others joining up to tease me(arasiyalla idhellam sagajamappa),discussing some important 'matters'... time just went on.

Friends.. I think people with the same character get glued together quite easily. We call it as 'wave length'(its something related to physics la?!) and 'chemistry'(kya kodum hai saravanan ji!) I don't like the 'bonding in relationships' to be described with such disgusting terms. But still.. due to the lack of proper words, I too call it 'wavelength' and 'chemistry'.

Take my friends for instance.. most of them are like me. If you are one of my friends, then I can hear your mind-voice saying that you are not like me and that you are absolutely normal. Okie.. but there is 'something' for sure that binds us together.

Wait! Why am I writing about this now? See the topic.. Lets stick on to it!

After hearing the news that the training is for four months, I donno how to react. Four months of luxurious life, all the time with friends, fundaaa! But four months away from family and friends. Thats really bad! But being optimistic, I'm expecting THE best to happen to me there.

Should I study something before going for the training? YESHH.. But I can't(Hide n Seek Style!) Studying is so boring. Even staring at the plain wall for hours seems more interesting to me.

Suddenly I've started liking Dhoni very much. I donno much about cricket, but still.. he is good.. isn't he? I mean.. a good player! I also liked the way he interacted with the soldiers in NDTV's 'Jai Jawan'(Note this, I watch NDTV also) I like Dravid too. He is my all time favourite. But... well..

Back to the topic... Its been a long time since I watched a movie in theatre. The last time I went to theatre was to watch 'Shivaji' or was it 'Billa'? I forgot.. it was one of these two movies.

My mobile is in a bad condition now. Scratches all over it, I'd dropped it down several times(the problem is.. if someone tells a joke, I drop my mobile and laugh), I've also nearly lost it many times. Hope I get a new one soon.

Back to the topic.. After reading all this.. is your head aching? If not, then go through my other posts as well. Now you've got a headache rite..? good!

Buy Amrutanjan. Apply it on your forehead and say, 'Its gone!' 'Poyae pochu!'

Continue with your work..
In other words.. poi polappa paaru...

Sugar and spice and all that's nice

Haha.. Don't fume! I don't mind changing the topic of the previous post to 'Snips and snails and puppy-dog tails'... if u insist!

"...I want my daughters to have exactly the same opportunities as your sons."
-Barack Obama

'..I don’t particular like this trend of marrying off girls this young. What about their own lives and careers? Wouldn’t they want to do something with their lives? Now don’t say they will have careers after marriage. Our ‘culture’ will expect them to do the duties of a housewife also and eventually the strain will make them give up their jobs.
'Wow! Good to know that there are guys who think gals too have ambitions and would wanna pursue with career. Hats off man!

You don't have to be anti-man to be pro-woman.
~Jane Galvin Lewis

So here is my post about gals. This is what gals really are.. (read between lines and take tips)

# PINK!!! No topic about gals is complete without a mention to this colour. I truely donno whether pink is 'girly' coz gals like it or gals like it coz its called 'girly'. But who cares? pink is cute, pink is sweet, pink is beautiful, pink is 'girly'..

# Women don't have waterhose attached to our eyes. We don't cry for no reason. But yes! We are (more)emotional and (more)sensitive compared to guys.

# YES! We like shopping.

# We gals share emotional bonding with each other. When one gal is happy, all her friends are happy too and the whole atmosphere is filled with thrilled shrill voices(gals do sound a bit squeaky when excited!) And similarly, when something bad happens to a gal, all her friends get worried.

# Women talk more. YES! But we have the ability to make others feel comfortable, motivated and happy by our words. Women are better at consoling others and giving emotional support.

# We don't go for facial, pedicure, manicure, waxing et al.. frankly I donno what some of these are! Got it from the song in boy's movie.. seems like Vairamuthu knows more about all these than most gals. May be the hot chicks around do it.. but not any other ordinary gal.

# We are NOT afraid of thunder. These tamil movies have created such a wrong idea about this.. so guys don't have a chance during thunder. Then we are not afraid of lizards also. We don't go eeeek! when we see spiders..

# Gals are not behind your money. We've got enough of it. The only reason we smile at guys posing with expensive bikes, minor chains, gold bracelets, ear studs, coolers et al is because.. haha just look at them. We don't wanna laugh out loud and hurt the guy's feelings... at the same time we can't control our laughter. Thus end up smiling.

# To prove his love.. He swam the DEEPEST river! Climbed the HIGHEST mountain! Crossed the HOTTEST desert!!!
She... Divorced him coz he was never with her!
MORAL: Guys never understand that girls are simple..

# Do you know how many questions a gal has gotta face if she comes home late?! You guys have all the freedom.. to even roam on the roads all alone at mid night. So yes! We are jealous of you for this.

# Gals fall for guys who can impress them with their behaviour rather than money or appearance.

# For most gals, family is our first priority. Parents, husbands.. err husband, children are more important than anyone or anything else in this world.

# Gals always think about the consequences before they take any decisions. Sometimes its good.. but at other times its not so.

# Why is it that a gal alone should leave her parents and go with her husband after marriage? Won't she feel sad to leave her parents behind? Completely new atmosphere with totally new people.. the way most women cope up with it is really surprising to me!

# Finally, how much ever a woman expresses her opinion about this male-dominated society, complains, fights, argues.. she finally submits to the man she is married to.
Weirdo Women!

The Dark Side

# Gossips(as though guys don't gossip) But yes, gals gossip more. We don't much chat about politics, spor err.. cricket or the latest in technology(like u guys) We do chat about these also. Gals are always more curious about whats happening in other's lives.

# The unity among gals is not very strong. During happy times we are all close together but during hard times, most gals back off fearing the consequences(as said before)

# Women are not contented.. be it happiness, dresses, jewels(I think the attraction women had towards jewelry has minimised a lot. The 'walking around covered by gold mocking Goddess Lakshmi' is a practise of the past. Women of our age prefer other 'accessories' that can be picked up on the road side shops in T Nagar.) But dresses?! YEAH!! Again, I doubt whether women go behind rich men.. its not true in most cases. Women expect their men to earn enough to afford all these.

# Women have big mouths and sharp tongues. This is quite evident from the mother-in-law daughter-in-law fights that we have always heard of(possessiveness is the main reason, I guess) Though the father-in-law son-in-law relationship is no better, they atleast manage to keep their mouths shut and avoid publicity.

The Species from Mars.. called man!

Disclaimer: This post is about what I feel about the species from mars and any relevance to people alive or dead is purely intended and not coincidental. Feel free to challenge me, disagree with me, or tell me I’m completely nuts in the comments section, but I reserve the right to delete any comment for any reason whatsoever(abusive, profane, rude, or anonymous comments) - so better keep it polite.

Disclaimer 2: This post is only about the men who are senseless, abusive, rude, mean and really bad towards women and the 'Gentlemen' visiting this blog need not get provoked.. this has got nothing to do with you!

# Guys love guys! Yeah.. its true. They would do anything to keep the other men happy. In any relationship between a male and a female, men don't much care for women. But when a man is depressed he seeks comfort only from the women he knows(he dare not tell about his problems to the other men.. they would just mock at him and have a good time teasing..)

# Your awfully dreadful sense of humor! Some lame slapstick jokes, often aimed at wounding someone and deriving pleasure out of it. No one would call you 'humorous' for this, you are a 'sadist'... go and consult a psychiatrist.

# Men stick on to this crap always.. 'Man has built Taj Mahal for his woman. But women do nothing for men.' Stop taking credit for others work(as you always do in schools, colleges and work) Would you dare take a bad example and generalise all men to it?

# Men use all kinds of abusive words to describe women but I wonder how their mother alone(who is obviously a woman!) is the goddess of affection, love, care and warmth!

# Men are dominating. They always want women to be working under their orders, should not have opinions of their own, just say 'Yes Sir!' and do whatever they are ordered to do. Just because you are a guy/man doesn't mean that you have every right to order us. I have a doubt.. are you men born with horns or what? If yes, then you belong to the demon's world.. so get out of our place. If no, then you are in no way superior.. so stop telling us what to do. If you don't want women to have individual opinion then please don't marry a woman.. go get a 'thanjavur thalayaati bhommai'

# When a gal doesn't like a guy, she shows it on face.. just avoids him. But guyzzzz! They would casually talk with the gal as though nothing is wrong at all. Later, in her absence, would pass obscene comments and abuse her.

# Dowry - The most stupid practice ever! Though some men would say, 'I don't like demanding dowry.. but still for my parent's sake.. they are with that kind of mindset...blah blah..' Today you would demand dowry from the gal.. just because your parents insist(as you put it!) Later you would throw your parents out of the house.. just because your wife insists(again.. as you put it!) Got doubts.. are you brainless? Or you've decided to use it only to annoy gals? Can't you stand up for your opinion? Or are you so sure of your incapability towards earning wealth on your own?

# Why do you guys fuss so much about how the gals dress? If you can't keep your senses under control thats your problem. As though you won't get distracted by gals in chudi... guys get distracted by the very presence of gals.. their glamourous dressing just adds up to it.

# Again, why do you guys fuss so much about the make-up that gals wear? And whats your botheration if we are worried about suntan? Oh yeah! Guys play cricket(may be they know nothing else) all day long, in the scorching sun. Even buffaloes stand in the scorching sun for hours.. does this in any way mean that guys have buffalo skin? And after all this.. the way they come complaining(to women ofcourse) about their complexion..OMG!! Good for them that some fairness creams for men are in the market. Otherwise they would have to stealthily buy 'fair n lovely'(as they'd been doing till recent times..) There are even guys who try the besan(kadala maavu) facepack!

# 'Love' - All that most guys want is a pretty doll to flirt with, just to show off to their other male friends.
'His love is till She says "I love you"'
'Her love starts after She says "I love you"'
And the 'marriage material gal' is someone who looks beautiful, always smiling, talking in a polite way.. blah blah.. blahh.. hey WAIT! I've seen the same criteria somewhere else.. yeah receptionist! even air hostess...

# Forgetting important occassions(read as her b'day, wedding day, et al) No guy would ever dare to forget the birthday of the gal whom he wants to flirt with. But when it comes to the 'other' women(read as mom, sis, friends, wife or gal friend for 5yrs or more..) how well they remember to forget! Don't blame your 'poor memory' for it.. coz we very well know that you still remember what dress(or the absence of it!) was shreya wearing in 'vaji vaji' song.. or how India won(or lost) the match(cricket ofcourse) in the 1997 match against the Aussies. Its just that you choose to have 'selective amnesia'

# Most of you men complain that its always you paying bills for any outing with women. Hello.. this applies only when its an outing(read as dating) with your gal friend... but when its an outing with your female friends its mostly us who pay. Even your gal friends won't mind paying the bills but after seeing you doing all the gymnastics to get the bill from across the table, its just that she gives up. What do you want us to do.. give a hard punch on your stomach and get the bill from you?

P.S. for gals: I know you are quite happy with this post! But just that one point you wish I could have added.. no problem! Add it yourself in the comment box..

P.S. for guys: Close your eyes.. take a deep breath.. have a glass of water(BP tab if needed).. RELAX! Now scroll up and read DISCLAIMER 2... okay? 'But still.. This whole thing is a crap', you are thinking and yeah you have every right to defend your species. So go ahead.. talk me in the comment box(scroll up n go through DISCLAIMER)..
You are most welcomed!

P.S. for all: Though we may not like each other for various reasons, we gotta get along with each other in every day life. So, just consider this as a place to speak out the differences and get to understand each other better. This post may lead to fights and arguments but we'll call it a 'discussion'.. I've poured out my 'opinion'.. its your turn now.. go on..

Happy abusing..

NOTE : One of the 'gentlemen' I know wished that I could have added some good stuff about men also.. so just to make the gentlemen around feel comfortable, I've added this piece to the post. But this in no way means that I'm giving in .. I STILL STRONGLY STAND FOR WHAT I HAVE SAID!

# Men are quite possesive about their women. Thats good actually.. makes his woman feel 'special'
# They are very much protective towards the gals/women around them.
# Taking things easily.. here the stuffs like failing in exams, getting scoldings from dad et al counts (stuffs related to gals n love are exceptions)
# Guys needs are very few.. atleast I feel so.
# Mischievous. Even some gals are so.. but the number is a bit low.
# Though they may tease others so much(even in a hurting way), when the other person has some serious problem.. they stand up for them(some exceptions..)

My trip to Mysore

Went to mysore recently with my family..

Things I liked in the trip:

This was a long awaited vacation with my family.. as all(except me) are very busy. Had fun spending time with my family!

The security in the Chennai central station.. WOW!! We left on 13th, two days before independence day, so the security was tight! There was no checking in Mysore railway station though.. So yaay Chennai is safer!

I really liked our hotel room.. except that the floor was icy chill!

Palace.. woohoo..What a place!! I wish I could live there.. for atleast a day(naah.. for ever!)

Tipu Sultan's summer palace! Though we reached there just few minutes before closing time, we did manage to have a good look around the place.

The spirit of patriotism that I suddenly got when I heard about Tipu's stand against the English. I seriously wanted to be a part of the freedom fight! Boohoo.. Its all over long back!

The lake we visited.. forgot the name.. but it was good!

Zooooooooooo.. I love animals!! Best part of our trip I would say!!!!

The gorilla.. ummmah!

Rhino enclosure.. *flashback*.. ezzzh ezzzh ezzzh.. many many years ago.. I got lost in the same place. Yeah i did get lost.. what happened is.. The rhino walked along the fence with me.. I thought it was a game so I started walking along the fence as well! Everything went on well until it lost interest in me.. and went off. Only then did I realise that I was lost.. Thanks to the rhino! Whew! Good that my family managed to find me(for which my sis is repenting till now) I wondered if it is the same rhino.. anyways it din't recognise me!

The cute kutti elephant.. it came running towards people. The way the calf ran off when the mahout shouted 'aye illi bha'(hey come here!) Till date I din't know that elephants knew kannadam!

The crocs.. and the way leading to that place.. wow! Just out of words!!

Journey back home.. Had a good sleep in train! mmm.. may be they'd washed the pillow covers n sheets this time!

Things I din't like(hate is a harsh word..) in the trip:

Though the security in the railway station impressed me.. suddenly the scanner stopped working and we had to wait for a few minutes before someone came and repaired it.

The pillow and sheets they provided in the train.. YAK!!! It was my mistake.. I should not have smelled it! It must have been ages since they washed it.

Speaking in tamil.. a big NO. The waiter in a hotel gave me a weird look when I spoke in tamil.. then din't attend to us properly. So from then on all of us zipped up our mouths and only my dad did all the talking..(yeah he knows kannadam!)

The food there.. Oh God!! yaaki!!

Brindhavan Gardens was closed for security reasons.

The roadside shops there. How the shopkeepers bug the tourists to buy stuff.. and the price they quote! happaa.. for things that are worth only Rs.20 they charge Rs.500... tourist na enna illichchavaaya (but yes they are!)

Most of the tourist spots are closed by 5PM.. What'll the people do after 5 I wonder.. May be they lock themselves up in their houses..

A whole day spent on going to various temples.. phew!! My mom is hopeless..

Spent most of the time drinking coffee(ahh how much coffee I drank!!).. taking medicines.. applying amruthanjan.. blowing my nose.. and pretending to be fine!

Was really embarrassed when the monkeys got frightened when I sneezed.. aachooo.. *sniff* *sniff* (Thank God! no one saw..)

Pitied the tigers there.. such small cages!
(NOTE TO ASLAM : Don't go to the mysore zoo. If you go.. I'm sure your blood vessels will burst on seeing the plight of the big cats there!)
They were roaming in the cages restlessly(cages were not big enough to use the word 'roam'.. but still for the lack of proper word..) The lions.. err lion.. there was just one.. bore adikaadhu?! I wanted to give it a big hug saying 'Don't worry dear..I'm here..' but fearing 'communication gap' I dropped that idea..

Things for which I din't know how to react (silar siripaar silar azhuvaar.. naan epdi react panradhunu theriyaama muzhichchaen!):

The climate. It was cold there.. if we'd gone there anyother time I would have surely enjoy it! But this time I had cold.. and due to the climate it worsened and I ended up with fever.

One of the temples was closed when we reached. I really felt relieved that I need not stand in the long queues.. but on the other hand felt bad seeing my mom getting upset for this.

In Tipu's summer palace..
'Entry fee for Indian citizens Rs.5 Foreigners Rs.100'

Have you ever heard of this crow story.. really funny! There is a white crow in Mysore. People there have a belief that the day when the crow drinks cauvery water the whole world will be destroyed. What crap! If thats true why not just kill that crow?! May be they have a story for that too.. GOK!!

Back home now..
Home Sweet Home!
