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…
