She is modern,
She will be outspoken,
She loves chit chatting,
She laughs loud,
She might giggle for your jokes,
She might come out for breaks/lunches with you,
But you CANNOT take an advantage with her.
Hey Mr., mind you, keep your distance from her.
The first/second time she might just warn/hint u,
But if u continue, u can be sure, u will feel ashamed of urself.
U better mind urself and dont MESS with her.

வாழ்கை தத்துவம் - Oru thedal !!

Google search engine is a fabulous tool for finding info on the net. I use it for finding technical info, movie reviews, product reviews, tourism information, cookery stuff, home remedies, geographic locations, news and things like this.

I had written a post titled "வாழ்கையின் தத்துவம்" earlier. And the comments from friends and family were just .......... am wordless ;)

Here is the link between google n my post
வாழ்கையின் தத்துவம்.....I find people searching for the phrase "வாழ்கை தத்துவம்"(this is the exact phrase used in google search) from different parts of the world!!! You wont believe, at least one hit a day for that post through google search. Am just wondering, why are people searching for this on the net...there is no specific movie/song/literary work that I know by this name....Why would ppl search for vazhkai thathuvam on the net ... Why?????

Global Warming, Rains n Prayers

As a child, I imagined green house gasses and global warming as a concept that was true only within the Ooty Botanical garden, especially because the concept was explained with the glass houses as examples. I wondered why the text books are so concerned about how the environment would be after 100years or so. I didn’t realize that the effect would be visible right in front of my eyes within the next few years.

I remember praying to GOD that it should not rain on my birthday (falls in July). Only then I will be able stand in front of the play ground during the prayer session and the whole school will look at my new dress ;)

I recollect praying for rain every August 15th so that our ground would be filled with water and there will be no march-past and I can stay back home happily.

During half-yearly exams, me n my sis would eagerly watch the DD news for the weather report and rejoice when they predict rains/heavy rains. Our exam would be cancelled then :D

I would pray GOD should spare Diwali and not rain on that day. I would give him permission to use the afternoons but not the early morning and the evenings. That’s when we burst the cracker at my granny’s place n have hell of fun!

Every new year’s eve, I request him not to spoil our party ground, that is any one of our friend’s terrace so we can stay awake all night n watch the new year’s first dawn!

Even last November I remember heavy rains! In fact, I guess one November Tuesday, it rained so heavily that on the way back home from office, every vehicle was stranded on the Anna University road. And the best part was, our van wasn’t doing well. The radiator would go dry after a few meters of travel. Initially we got water from the road side shop and later on, we would the by-passers to fill our can with water that was stagnated on the road. The roads were filled with around 2ft water. We started by 6.30pm and reached home by 10 -10.30 pm.

Gone are those days!! Now every day I pray GOD “Please shower rain at least today!!!” He heard my prayer yesterday!!

Thank u GOD…please hear my prayers daily and shower rains this season. I promise to save the EARTH as much as I can and you promise to save our future generations, provide them a sweet and lovable EARTH.

Tulsi !!

I've imagined a lot abt how my marriage will happen. Like wat colour will my saree be, my hair style, my groom's costume, wat programs to conduct, not much abt the menu, how my sis n mom should dress, how everyone should enjoy my wedding n all that. But I've never given a though abt what I would give in the thambulam.

I've been to many marriages (friends, family..) but nerver found the thambulam very
interesting. Its usually a fruit with some sweet or savory. If its a close family member's marriage, then u get a nice bag/pouch with the bride n groom's name printed. I hadn't given much thought on it. But now I think I should think abt that as well. My best friend was married last week. And I found the thambulam most useful. It was a TULASI sapling !!!! It's something very traditional and a need of the hour. Thanks to all the new diseases. I didn't get a chance to ask her who's idea it was. But its definitely a splendid one. Its a very low cost gift but a high satisfying gift! If it is not used or cared properly, then the life saver plant loses its life :( But since its a holy plant, no one will ignore and is considered auspicious. Any of you have nice innovative ideas for the thambulam??

The perfect date!

Yesterday was the most beautifully used day!!! The perfect date(Day)!!

Now am not talking about something romantic n all....its the most useful Saturday I've spent over the last few months.It was a very tight pack schedule. Woke up early in the morning at 9.00 AM so that at least this week we don't miss our Deepawali shopping. During our breakfast at around 10.00AM, my sis reminded us abt the movie "Unnai pol oruvan", something we wanted to watch for quite sometime. Dad could only afford for only night shows, becoz of his schedule. We swallowed our breakfast and rushed to our nearby theater for advance booking. Luckily, the tickets were available and we booked the ticked for the night show.

Returned home to find that our maid had messed up with the household work and we helped mom with the cleaning and hurryed to make the shopping at least this week. The work was completed by around 12.15 PM and started off to Pondy bazaar, with a few watches that needed battery replacement. This time we headed to Naidu Hall (influenced by our previous visit). Reached there by 1.00 PM owing the the great traffic. It took us hardly 20 mins to reject all their collections. This time the collections are just not good. We headed to a less known shop call Bobby on the same lane of Naidu hall, a little beyond Milan Jyothi. On the way, we found a Watch shop and replaced batteries for a the TITAN watches. Was just casually checking if they had fancy Fast track straps for my Fast track watch (which was sporting a local Rs.30 black strap). Luckily she had a denim strap with pink thread dancing here n there. I was in instant love with it and now my watch is as good new(Its actually a 3 yr old watch).

We entered BOBBY a few mins later, and the collection was real huge and dont ask me how many I got. It did pinch my Credit card hard. But Deepawali comes only once a year and this is just another reason. Hurried for lunch to Hot chips near Maya plaza, had a hearty meal and reached home by sharp 4.00PM.

Kept the auto waiting and freshened up ourselves and rushed to the Sacred Heart School auditorium. I was supposed to be there at sharp 4.00PM for a World Vision Partner's meet. This organization n event needs a special mention. I sponsor a child through World Vision(WV) and thanks to WV for helping me help. The word "Partner" for my small contribution is just huge. Now for the event, on the way to the auditorium we saw small girls dressed up sweetly for the dance programs and smart boys in same pattern T-shirts. We (me n my sis) were greeted with a huge smiles at the entrance. The organizers had invited a few partners and sponsored children to share their experiences. Followed by a video presentation, that detailed how WV works. They showed how they helped a village to get pure drinking water and helped them start income generators and the children's education through the funds from the partners. The highlight of the program was the dance performance by the girls and boys from Santhome Home for the Hearing impaired. Hearing impaired n dance? Yes!! They dance not by hearing the music but by following their instructor who was standing as a part of the audience and with just the movement of this two fingers, the entire troop was dancing. Really amazing!! Returned home by around 7.00PM with full satisfaction that I am a part of this great organization. I would suggest everyone to sponsor a child and help our country grow. Its just Rs.600 per month and the value we add to the child is not measurable. After the event I have decided to write to my child often and have a personal relationship with him. You can sponsor by registering here.

After having dinner, the four of us headed for the movie. A good movie indeed! That was my busy day that gave me full satisfaction.
