Religion

Let me talk something serious now... (at least for now)
And the topic is an ancient one.
Yes. Religion.

What is a religion?
Well, Wikipedia says:
"A religion is a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a supernatural agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs"

Fine. Religion defined.

Whats the main thing in a religion?
God.
I ever wonder if such a thing exists.

God is just a concept.
A phenomenon.
A feeling.

Ok! All that is fine.
But today? Things we see are entirely different.

God is a source of excuse.
A reason for violence.
A root for superstition.
And most importantly, a name for terrorism...!

So whats the use of a religion?
Peace? Enlightenment? Salvation? etc etc???

Absolutely not!

Rather, religions result only in stupid and anti-social things like:
Violence. Riots. Destruction. Terrorism. etc etc.....!

So, y r…

A friend in need...

I've often wondered at this proverb:
A friend in need is a friend indeed.Why should it be so?
A friend is a friend even if u dont need or want him/her...
And even if u neglect him/her, he/she should not neglect u...!
Like, u must have an agreement kinda thing between u...
An agreement.
A deed.
So,
A friend in need is a friend in DEED.Hope u get my point... :)

இன்னா

I came across this திருக்குறள் (Thirukkural) recently-

இன்னாசெய் தாரை ஒறுத்தல் அவர்நாண
நன்னயஞ் செய்து விடல்.

Meaning-
If someone does any harm to you,
put them in shame by doing them something good.
But i'm actually not a person that good n all...
And its extremely normal for a normal human being to hit back or
take a revenge immediately or even sometime later...

So, i jus thought of giving an alternative version-

இன்னாசெய் தாரை ஒறுத்தல் அவர்காண
இன்னொன்று செய்து விடல்.

Meaning-
If someone does any harm to you,
you do one when they are still watching.Hope Mr. Thiruvalluavar or any of his fans doesn't mind...! :)

The "idly" philosophy

2 days back, i was having lunch wit my mom n she was sayin,
"im not gonna cook for dinner. jus some idlies from a hotel"

instantly i got a mokka thathuvam (philosophy)
"இட்லி-யா இருந்தாலும் இட்டு துன்னு,
இட்டாந்து துன்னாதே..."

amma started beating me...! :)

Mind your thoughts

Thoughts arise in mind...
But the concept of mind is just a thought...!

Isn't it? :)

நொடி

Sitting vetti(jobless) at home during my semester hols last year, i started writin something on a paper that was just lying on my table.
I still wonder how this came into my mind and i instantly wrote them down...
Within some 4-5 minutes!!!
I was very much impressed by myself. I still am...! :)

நாங்கள் சந்தித்தோம்.
நேருக்கு நேர்.
அந்த நொடி - (ஓர் உலகம் உண்டாகி அழிந்த நொடி)
அவளைப் பார்த்த அந்நோடி-
எனக்குள் ஓர் மாற்றம்.

"அவளுக்கும் அதே போல் ஓர் மாற்றம்
ஏற்பட்டிருக்க வேண்டும்"
-என்று நினைத்தால் அது என் முட்டாள்த்தனம்.

ஆனாலும்,
"அப்படி ஏதேனும் நிகழ்ந்திருக்கக்
கூடாதா?"
-என்று எனக்குள் ஓர் சின்ன (சொல்லப்போனால் பெரிய)
ஏக்கம்.
எல்லாம் அவளது தாக்கம்.
இவையனைத்தும்...
அவள் என்னைக் கண்ட நொடிக்கும்,
கடந்து சென்ற மறு நொடிக்கும் இடையே
எனக்குள் நிகழ்ந்தேரிய ரஸாயந மாற்றங்கள்...

Cute, Smiling & Close-to-heart

02-12-09.
Today, i had an excellent, cute, close-to-heart conversation with a close-to-heart friend of mine... :)
For the next few moments, i was blushing inside, as i couldn't do it outside bcoz of the other ppl present n the canteen...

I had made a gift for my friend for her b'day 3 days back...
I wished her exactly at 12 & i could feel from her voice that she was happy for that :)
And then i made her a gift out of the things i already had, and it took me more than 3-4 hrs to make it n i slept by 4! The next day, i.e. on her b'day i had to leav for coll by 7 for a training programme for 3 days. Though i had taken the gift to coll, i couldn't meet her n give it to her...! :(
The next day, i could meet her, but only after meeting her, i realised i forgot to bring it to coll...! :(

On the last day, i prayed i could meet her.
Finally, i could meet her by 1.25 in the canteen n she was n a hurry to meet the dean. I gave her the gift n i couldn't see her stop smiling for th…

sms

"Its tough when starts ignoring u.
But its even tougher to pretend that u dont mind..."

I recieved this text msg (sms) this morning...
It had something that i felt it was someone's reaction reaction to my previous post...
It was jus sent as a "forward" n now i realised that these things indirectly say that we have to move "forward" rather than crying over sp(o)ilt milk...

Lesson learnt, again...

Today, i was feeling bad for a lot of things...!

Friends leaving, classes with them over forever...
My friend's friend huggin her sayin, "hey i wont c u again di... miss u..." wit a nice smile popping out of both faces...
Friend rushing to submit their confirmation letters...
All my best friends getting ready to leave college, leaving me behind...

Even when i went to someone to talk something from my heart,
they didnt listen... Actually they were quite busy and i was just leaving home...
Yeah, there's a reason. A valid reason. But whats the result?
Someone gets hurt, goes unnoticed and someone treis finishing their job without even knowing that that someone wanted them...
I cannot blame anyone, (i dont have the right to.) because everybody's first priority is none other than themselves...!

I actually felt like i was virtually pushed into an island full of unknown people...
No one to rescue, No one to care,
No one to talk and of course, No one to listen...!
I just walked off t…

Kuru kuru kangalile...

Well, we all know our beloved A.R.Rahman's latest holllywod venture was 'Couples Retreat'...
I got the soundtracks of the movie n all of them were really awesome...!!!
With some songs wit the Indian touch, they were all pleasant to the ears...

And the most interesting thing is that there's a full song in Tamil...! :)
Can u believe that...?
A Tamil song in a hollywood movie...!

The song starts "kuru kuru kangalile" and is penned & sung by our Rahman himself...! :)

In an interview, Rahman said, "The director of the movie asked for a song that must be intoxicating. Well, Tamil can be intoxicating too...!"

The song is really intoxicating and here's the lyrics:

Kuru kuru kangalilele...
Enai aval vendraale...

Kuru kuru kangalilele...
Enai aval vendraale...

Idho idho aval enai patham parkiraal...
Idho idho aval enai patham parkiraal...

Siru siru pennilave...
En thunai avaalo...

Siru siru vennilave..
En pasi theerpalo...

Idho idho aval enai patham parkiraal...

வருவாயா...? :)

Shame on "SHAME"

An incident, a very recent incident made me feel much about my friends & sisters. I can't keep a watch on all my beloved people and protect them and ensure their safety. My sister's words made me almost cry inside.

I just ask one question. "WHY???" Why the hell are women abused? Because they are considered "weaker sex"...? In fact, men are the weaker sex... No men is born or fed without a woman. The very first word from a child's mouth & the cry of a dying man is of a woman. Whomever it may be. At any point of life, a woman fills the void. So why abuse them...?

To all who derive pleasure on making a woman suffer:
"What if your own sister/mother/wife is molested in front of you ? Would you repent for the mistakes you had done earlier and stop doing such things...?"
I think "NO!". You would still continue the stupidity earning accumulating curses from all those victims.

One thing is sure! There are lots of paedophiliacs & philan…

good & bad

Not all are bad...
But,
Not all are good either...!

The Lizard-Spock Expansion

Rajesh Koothrappali: I'll tell you what. How about we go rock-paper-scissors?

Sheldon Cooper: Ooh, I don't think so. Anecdotal evidence suggests that in the game of rock-paper-scissors, players familiar with each other will tie 75 to 80% of the time due to the limited number of outcomes. I suggest rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock.

Rajesh Koothrappali: What?

Sheldon Cooper: It's very simple. Scissors cuts paper. Paper covers rock. Rock crushes lizard. Lizard poisons Spock. Spock smashes scissors. Scissors decapitates lizard. Lizard eats paper. Paper disproves Spock. Spock vaporizes rock. And as it always has, rock crushes scissors.

Dream...

I dream of a morning...

A morning with a coffee
A coffee with a smile
A smile in a beautiful face
A face with a striking charm
A charm with utmost care
A care that comes from heart
A heart my heart possesses
A heart that makes me smile
A smile that prevails in my dream

I dream of a morning...

P.S: I wrote this for a friend of mine who asked y i always write sad things n asked me to try somthin happy. this may not sound happy, but still... i jus tried... :)

The ONE

People are good at hurting.
I'm good at getting hurt.

People are good at making friends.
I'm good at losing the existing ones.

People are good at enjoying.
I'm good at crying for not.

People are good at achieving.
I'm good at not using my little skills.

People are good at sharing their feelings.
I'm good at searching for people to share with.

And finally...
     People are good at understanding.
     I'm good at misunderstanding.

Proof:
     All the above...

Many share many with many.
I share everything with few.

Many are almost self-centered.
Me too..! At the center of my "few".

Many have imperfect completions.
I have only some perfect incompletions.


Reason for writing all these:
It's not about
     what happened to me.
It's ALL about
     who made it happen to me.

The ONE...
     The one i like(d)...
     The one i love(d)...
     The one among my "few"...

But not anymore...!

"few" has become "fewer"...! :(

The Luminous Fish Effect

Penny : When one door closes another one opens

Sheldon : No it doesn’t. Not unless the two doors are connected by relays or there are motion sensors involved.

The Luminous Fish Effect

Sheldon : You know, I've been thinking about time travel again.

Leonard : Why? Did you hit a roadblock with invisibility?
Sheldon : Put it on the back burner. Anyway, it occurs to me, if I ever did perfect a time machine I'd go into the past and give it to myself. Thus eliminating the need for me to invent it in the first place.

Leonard : Interesting.

Sheldon : Yeah, it really takes the pressure off.

Big Bang Theory

Leslie: Hello, Sheldon.

Sheldon: [looks terrified] Leslie Winkle!

Leslie: Yeah, Leslie Winkle! The answer to the question, "Who made Sheldon Cooper cry like a little girl?".

Sheldon: Yes! Well, I'm polymerized tree sap and you're an inorganic adhesive, so whatever verbal projectile you launch in my direction is reflected off of me, returns on its original trajectory and adheres to you.

THE culprit

TIME...?
YA, TIME...!

Time is THE culprit...
It changes everything the way it wants and
makes all of us suffer...
Damn...!

ABANDONED

"Here !", I said.
No response.

"Here ! Now !", I shouted.
No response.

"No ! Don't... Comeback ! Please...", I shouted.
Still no response.

A semi-transparent image, as i visualised,
was running to catch a
"neither-skinny-nor-fat" - kinda figure,
walking alone in a majestic bait,
as if she had jus killed her life-long enemy.

But the image did not heed to its owner...!
Me !

I was the most abandoned in this world...!
Even by my soul...!

Who will i cry to...! :(

How do I love you...?
Wait, let me count the ways... :)

Expectations

Never expect anything in ur life...

Because expectations have the maximum probability of failure...!

Sweet surprises from the sweetest people...
A moment for the greatest dimple...

life is sweet... :)
Thanks to ma frenz... :)

ஆஹா...!

வஸந்தகால நாள் ஒன்றில் வீட்டினுள்
மாலைப் பொழுது...

அழகாடை உடுத்தி நான் நிற்க
அழகிற்க்கே ஆடையுடுத்தி அழகாய்
அவள் நிற்க...

"Surprise !!"-என சொல்லி (அவள்)
கயல்விழிகளை நான்மூட (என்)
கைப்பட்ட மறுநொடியில் கயல்
போல் அவள் நெளிய...

Car-ல் நகைக்கடைச் சென்று
கண்கட்டை (நான்) அவிழ்க்க
கண் எதிரே (அவள்) வைரங்கள் காண
புன்னகை கயல்களைத் தொட (அவள்) கண்பார்வை...

என்திசை திரும்பி (என்னை)
கட்டியனைத்து கன்னத்தில்
கொடுத்த முத்தம்...

ஆஹா...!

நகைக்கடை சுருங்கியதே உண்மை...! :)

Fear...

I'm not what I was...
Today, i'm a new "me"...
Afraid of nothing & no one...
Mainly of my love, though im not her love... :(

I'm not goin to hide myself from her,
I'm not goin to hesitate talking to her,
I'm not goin to be afraid of telling her,
     "I've got u flowers, my dear... :) "

Ofcourse i need not be afraid of anyone,
     that too a gal.
But...
     That's never applicable n this case...!

This is not the fear of physique...

This is my inner fear...
     Fear of getting thrown away...
     Fear of a denial...
     Fear of losing my love...
     Fear of losing my life...!

If something of that sort happens,
     I'll lose my life,
     my love,
     my frenz,
     my soul...!

Thus making my parents sad,
     my frenz mourn,
     my love forget
     &
     myself weep...!

Hope these dont happen...
     Let me live happy...
     With my love...
     With my frenz...
     And my parents... :)

A happy life that makes
               others jealous...! :)

things i kno abt her...

i know abt her,
     neither everything...
     nor nothing...

i don't know
     if i'm always right, but...
i'm sure,
     sometimes i am...

she likes me,
     i know she doesn't show it off...
she hates me,
     i know that can never be true...
she wants me,
     but she acts as if she doesn't...
she loves me,
     this is the one i wish for...

move away...

Believe me, this is mine...! :)

     பிறர்வாய் தீச்சொல் கேட்கையில் அவ்விடம்

     leave the place the very second.

latest...

this is the latest one i've come up wit.. :)


     உன்னை மறக்க மறுக்கிறேன்...
     உன் பேச்சை மறுக்க மறக்கிறேன்...! :)

It means:

     I deny to forget u...
     I forget to deny u... :)

எண்ணங்கள்...

கண்ணே உன் கண்களை காணும் வரை
     என் உள்ளம் நிலையாய் இருந்ததடி...

உன் கண்கள் என் திசை பார்க்கும் வரை
     என் நெஞ்சம் என்வசம் இருந்ததடி...

உன் பேச்சில் அமுதம் மழையாக
     பொழிந்திடவே என் மனம் இனித்தடி...

உன் கால்களில் கொலுசில்லாத குறை
     உன் சிரிப்பில் அறவே மறைந்ததடி... :)

Mr. Valluvar

my 2nd poem bcoz of a bus.
but this time i got a seat ( to think comfortably! :) )
having got a seat in a bus from n.b.s to o.b.s ( new & old bus stand ), just a 5-minute travel
i saw a திருக்குறள் (thirukkural) written in the bus.
so i jus thought "i'l also write one..." & started thinking...
i didnt even think i'd come up with a 'kural' so soon...
before even i reached o.b.s...!

so here's my 'kural':

அறிவார் சபையில் தானும் இருக்க
அமைதி காத்தல் அறிவு.


It means:

In a hall of well-learned people, if u r also present,
keeping mum is the best thing to be done.

atlast i've become Mr. Valluvar...! :)

...Luck n Love...

i'm lucky to have met u...

i feel luckier to have got the strength to
propose u my love...

and i'd be the luckiest if u acept my proposal...

oh, my dear!
plz make me feel the luckiest in this whole world...!

the accidental poet...

i was abt to get into a bus to go home &
there was an unexpected rain...
was so frustrated over the rain as the whole town
gets worse abt its roads!

somehow i managed to get into a bus, with others' slippers
painting my pants with the brownish wet soil...

fine. stil more frustrating!

wit my right arm holding a rod for balance and my left arm in my pocket,
i could do nothing other than making my idle brain do some idle thoughts...
and that was frustrating, too!

a lot of topics started popuring in.
as usual my favourite mythology & even the ones i hate-like chemistry.

i never thought 'poetry' could come in!
i got some poetic thoughts which i never expected.
though it was a new entry, it jus helped me kill the time taken to reach the bus stand.

the most unexpected part was that, the poetry i was thinking of, was in தமிழ்(tamil)

a poem i thought of, and then refined on reaching home:


எதிர்பாராது வந்த மழையின்போது,
எதிர்பாராது வந்த தொலைபேசி அழைப்பு...

அழைப்பை ஏற்றதும் ஒலித்ததோ
அவளது குரல்..…

Without the significance...

i had written abt my schedule n skul n ma 1st post...

it was a time when i jus knew that i was learning
"Thaithiriya Samhita" & "Thaithiriya Brahmana" in "Krishna Yajur Veda".
nothing else did i kno abt it.
bcoz v were jus taught to chant 'whatever' was given the book.
i was comfortable with it bcoz i was able to pronounce the sounds with proper modulation.
but i never even thought there exists some meaning...

the verses start like:

ishEthvOrjEthvA vAyavasthhO pAyavasthha dEvovassavithA...

and after 7-8 years, i.e recently now, i googled to kno if there exists some meaning...

and i was very much excited when i read the meaning of the fist stanza...

the page read:


i. 1. 1.

For food thee, for strength thee!
Ye are winds, ye are approachers.
Let the god Savitr impel you to the most excellent offering.
O invincible ones, swell with the share for the gods,
Full of strength, of milk, rich in offspring, free from sickness, from disease.
Let no thief, no evil worker, h…
