File Corrupt

October 31 2011

Each death is a file corrupt
Each file holds valuable data
Each death takes with the person
Data accumulated through a life time

Temp files are with short lifespan
Some people are like that too
Sometimes a file and a person
Are removed cruelly with a single stroke

Some files are cherished
The whole system depends on them
Some people are so important
Their demise bring empires crashing down

Much needed files and people
Their disappearance from our life
Plays havoc with our memories
Making us think where we went wrong

We try sometimes in vain
To retrieve / revive through various means
Sometimes we succeed fully
Other times partially

Wish there are numerous backups
For both files and people
So I could bring back all
The ……………..
Files I miss and the dear ones.

I Feel The Pain

October 30 2011

I see your smile in my dreams
It hurts and it doesn't help at all
I want you in my life more than anything
I wanted to protect you forever from your failures

I still remember the first time I saw you
There was something so different about you
Your friendship was something I wanted to get
That smile when you said hi to me was so new

Out of no where you send me an email
I wanted to sit next to you and talk forever
You were so new, so crazy and unknown
I just knew that our friendship would never sever

Just few months and we are barely holding it together
I don’t know how and where I went wrong
I never wanted you out of my life
It looks gloomy without you around

I tried my best to work it out
It didn't work out of course and we knew each one is trying
We couldn’t even make one evening together
It shouldn't end this way but it did..

I miss you and everything you were to me
Years from now we will look back on it all
We will be older and finally be able to see
That true love will stand the test of time and never fail…

Honest - Once again!

October 29 2011

This is my third post in sequel, with the title “Smile”. These posts capture some of the simple yet humble gestures of people around me, making the moment a pleasant one.

It had been more than a couple of years I hadn't taken my mom out. Coimbatore is the place we often visit on those days. She is very much fond of the tasty, crispy Masala Dosa’s at the very popular food joint, Annapoorna. Today I had a chance to take her out to her favorite hang-out.

Annapoorna, which is also popularly known as dose camp, is always crowded. One has to wait for ten to fifteen minutes to savor the delicious food. This eatery is always buzzing with people of all ages & culture, young & old. Today, while waiting for my order to be served, I saw a beautiful girl. She was very charmingly clad in a stunning green silk saree. She was dressed to perfection. Her cute eyes were so attractive. Her lips wore a red gloss which elegantly matched the border color of her saree. She looked so gorgeous.

She was waiting for her take away order to be served, which took quite more time than usual, since the queue was longer. As the moments passed by, I noticed another woman walking up to her & without conversing a word, helped that gorgeous lady to set her pallu in a right way. Later I realized that the strap of her inner wear was slightly visible near her shoulder back. The lady, with a smile, whispered thank you to the one who helped her.

I noticed two great qualities in that woman. One was her respect towards other females. I am pretty sure there were many other women who might have noticed it, but did not have the courage to set it right. The other was her humble way of expression. She made it look so simple that the gorgeous lady did not feel embarrassed in front of others. Just great!

Smile is indeed a beautiful gesture.

Stranger or Friend...???!!!

October  28 2011

I have always been a good friend. At least I would like to believe that I am a good friend. My friends agree that I am a good friend, but then may be I am one because of them. I am one who keeps in touch with friends. I am the agony boy to my friends. I am the 3 a.m. friend. So I am a good friend to my friends! But can I be a good friend to a stranger??  Would I care about someone I don't know?? Would I lose my mind over some stranger's problems?? That, I am not so sure....then, am I still a good friend??
A few months back, I came across someone in this virtual world, someone who was a complete stranger to me, someone who I have never met face-to-face ever in my life....or may be I have....because, the way this girl motivates me, loves me, cares for me, I feel this person is known to me.  This person reads my mind better than most of my best friends.  This girl motivates and encourages me like no one do. How can a stranger be so close to me without ever having met me? Or is this my guiding angel?? I do not want to know the identify of this friend...because the anonymity is more appealing.  But I truly am really happy and lucky to have such a friend in my life.  Thanks Friend for enriching my life!

Forgiveness is my revenge!

October 27 2011

We all come across some people in life who we don't gel with. May be they have hurt our feelings through word or deed. May be they have hurt us so much that we do not want to ever have anything to do with them. May be we do not even want to look at their faces anymore!! I too have faced such situations in life when someone very dear to me, someone who I looked up to, hurt me and saddened me when I should have been the happiest. He/she betrayed my trust when I most needed them. I had decided that I am never going to forgive that person, never going to meet that person, but it does not help matters when we move in common circles. Invariably we are going to bump into each other and the only way to avoid each other is to look the other way. But does it help?? That is when my Amma taught me an important lesson in life. She told me that by feeling hurt and angry with someone, I am hurting myself. Every time I think about that betrayal, I am hurting from within. I am hurting myself. I am losing my peace of mind, but does it affect the betrayer?  No!! In fact, the more I hurt from within, the more I am letting the demons win. I am letting the one incident hurt me time and again. I am the one who is losing. So what do I do about it? She told me, forgive your betrayer. FORGIVE??????? Am I hearing it right?? Forgive my betrayer after all that he/she has done to me?? No I can never do it!! I am not a saint! She only smiled that knowing smile.....

Later when I reflected over what she said, I realized she was right! By thinking about the betrayal and the betrayer, I am letting him/her hurt me again and again. By hurting again and again, I am only letting the perpetrator win.  Why should I avoid seeing eye-to-eye or phone to phone with that person? Only a person who is wrong fails to meet the eye or to talk. If I know I am in the right, then why should I not meet his/her eyes??  So I decided to take the bull by its horns. I realized that I will stop thinking about the betrayal only if I let it go, and I can let it go only if I forgive that person. It is not easy to forgive someone who has hurt you deeply, but it is easier to take a stand in life and say "I will not let you hurt me again". 

Following this important lesson, today after many years, I have realized that I am in a happy space, a space where it is easier for me to confront the person who has hurt me, meet the person with a smile on my face, a smile that hurts the betrayer, a smile that makes my betrayer squirm, a smile that takes me away from all the hurt....Today, I have moved past that incident and my betrayer affects me no more....

I am no saint. In fact, I am still a short-tempered person, but I have learnt one important lesson in life....that forgiveness is my only revenge.

When I was a little boy, I was a big time fan of the classic cartoon series "Tom and Jerry". Even now it never fails to make me smile. In the late 80s and the early 90s Tom and Jerry was screened in Doordarshan between 4pm to 4.30 pm. I and my cousin saravan would sit in front of the TV sets and we would cheer Jerry for his pranks against Tom. In fact no one liked Tom except my sister.

My cousin and I fought like cats and dogs when we were kids.

When it comes to sports I was a fan of Martina Navratilova, Gabriella Sabatini, Monica Seles, Sanchez Vicario. He was a fan of Steffi Graf.On the Men's draw I was a fan of Stefan Edberg, Agassi and he was  fan of Becker and Pistol pete.

So Invariably if I like A, he would like B. That would make me to hate B and our egos were very strong on not liking the same thing.

I liked the Brazilian football team. Romario and Ronaldo were my favorite footballers. He liked the Argentinian football team even though he did not know anyone in the team.

I liked Sachin Tendulkar and he liked Vinod Kambli and he cried along with Kambli when India lost to Srilanka in the semifinals of the 1996 cricket world cup at Eden Gardens.

This must have been the case with those who have joint families. Many among you can relate to this. Now why did I name the post as "Curiosity!" ? Yeah! I remember it now. In Tom and Jerry cartoon, there was this lady of the house who used to spank Tom every now and then. Only her legs would be seen on TV.

Both my cousin and I had one common desire ~ To see the face of the lady. Many a times, we have gone closer to the TV and have tried to peek into the top corner of the TV to find how her face would look like. Have you done that too?


October 24 2011

Today is my free day. Instead of watching movies, I decided to read my friends blogs. From their blogs I went to their friends pages. 

Pages which make you laugh, cry and think. It made me think. What made us all start blogging? For people like me it is a way to release the pent up feelings, to be the real me. That is why I hide behind the stranger wall...

@ Ramya, you need a name to call me right? Call me Prabhu... or Pepsi.. these are names some people call me. Choose what you like. 

But many here know each other. Friends in real life too. so why blogging? Can't we talk to each other or call or email?

I have my own conclusion behind our blogging mentality but would like to know about your opinion first. Shoot it friends...

Day 3 

It was a very long day. Took a day off from office, drove for nearly 60 kilometers in about  1hour, with a very minimal rest & very delicious lunch at my sister's place. Evening was planned to attend a good friend's wedding reception. Anyone who knows how hectic it is to drive for long hours, can imagine my plight on this day. 

I returned home at around 7:30 PM, took shower, dressed up in a flash & took off for the wedding venue, which was on the other part of the city (Tirupur). With all the possible cursing & swearing on the rash & negligent riders & drivers, I reached half way of my journey. 

I was waiting at a zebra crossing of busy junction which was manned by a policeman since it did not have the traffic signal. The junction had tall tower which had several huge lights at the top. It was well illuminated. Lot of people were crossing the road. As the pedestrians herd was over, I looked at the policeman who waved & signaled the traffic to pass on. 

As I slowly started to move, a girl wearing a combination of green & white salwar came running to cross the road. Her silky hair neatly tied, her face glowing as bright as a star, her beautiful eager eyes wide open, her lips wore a pink lipstick. She stood right in front me, but only to cross the road, since the car in which I was traveling was stopping her way.
As a humble human, I stopped the car & made a gesture towards her to cross, but unfortunately, the traffic at the other side had already started off at a high speed. Feeling sad for her, I shrugged my shoulders & gave her a sorry smile. she did acknowledge me with her flamboyant smile. Her moist pink lips spread large over her cute face made her look so gorgeous. Rest of my day ended with a pleasant mood & a smile.

Smile is indeed a beautiful gesture. Have it ! Be Honest !


October 21 2011

I run out of words to express my feelings,
Nothing more worth than those beautiful phone talks...
Hand in hand we walked started a mile,
Never did I realize she was here only for a while...

When the pages of my past flutter,
She is the one whom I remember...
Lonely I sit yearning for more & more,
How do I tell she is the one i always adore...

I wish she was sitting next to me holding my hand,
Making my life more meaningful and a lot grand…
Whole world appeared to me as my fantasy,
Colors of joy around & a heart filled with ecstasy…

Her beautiful eyes speaks a thousand words
Her smile shines like a diamond in the herds…
She is always a personification of self sacrifice
She spells magic in her mesmerizing voice…D O N K E Y !

The imagination of a poet holds no barrier, needs no explanation. The perception & my emotions flow with my mood & the time. Lot more to come.

Enjoy rainzzz !!!

October 20 2011

I think & I strongly believe that most people, of all ages, enjoy rains in some way or the other... Be it enjoying a wonderful ride on the car opening the window fully, with the cool breeze blowing through the hair, tiny little beautiful rain drops touching the faces. Or be it taking a lovely walk just after the rain, enjoying the rain drops falling from the trees along with the wind... Or enjoying the rain outside the window, holding the drops in your palms... Its just amazing when you open your arms & let the rains embrace you... I hope & I strongly believe each one does love this.
Thought of sharing one of my wonderful ride on my car, on the way back home from clients office. It was a perfect weather for the evening ride, am sure couples would say as 'just a perfect time' for the romantic ride with their loved ones. I always enjoy my journey to office on a rainy day.

Enjoy rainzzz !!!

I spoke to Myself

October 19 2011

Inspiration is perhaps very much necessary to each one of us. We ourselves can truly inspire our-self. We know the person within us better than anyone else. Inspiring ourselves is the best one can do for the one self. I do speak to myself quite often, and I hope most of you too do, which is quite inspiring for me.
From a last couple of weeks, myself, good friend Ling & Thiyag are practicing for 5 kilometer Marathon coming up in November. We decided to run on the roads instead of using treadmills. It was all fun & indeed very stressful. When the stress gets the best out of you, we always tend to give up. Such was the scenario with me once. Half a kilometer to finish, I was grasping for breath. I was very much certain to stop at that point, even though the destination was in sight. Then I spoke to myself, regained my confidence & composure to complete the run.

I was very much excited when Ling expressed about the same feelings while we were discussing after our practice. He was true to say that the sighting of our destination helped us do our best. Hope to better our time during our next session.

Instead of searching for Inspiration elsewhere, we got to look into ourselves. If we can't find tranquility in ourselves, we can't find it anywhere.

Honest !

October 17 2011

It's quite a wonderful feeling when you come across some honest gestures from little unknown people or even at not much familiar places you often visit. A flashy smile or a comprehending look from a stranger might well get you out of frustration at times. If you are part of any busy bustling cities, where traffic snarls find it very easy to bug you out of your mind on any given day, these gestures, does make you smile at the end of a hectic day. Let me share some of similar gestures I came across in the last couple of days.

Day 1

On the other day, I had to accompany my mom & sister in law to a nearby doctor. It's a car garage turned into a very neat clinic. As a first time visitor, I was going through all the usual health awareness posters, which are common among all the doctors. One little note, which I felt & I had not seen before at any of the hospitals or clinics, amused me. I only treat, he cures was painted in blue italics on a white colored wall. Even the doctor was a simple person like the words written outside.

Day 2 
I was riding through the busy Chennai roads, which are always crowded, on my friends Yamaha F1 bike last night. Thanks to on going metro rail construction, traffic woes are getting worse these days. Waiting for the signal to turn green, was having a look the giant machinery at the construction site. The guy on a similar two wheeler came rushing behind me & was honking out loud on me. I had no where to go. With a fully determined anger to shout, I turned towards him. There came a gentle gesture from an elderly gentleman. With a humble smile on his face, that person apologized to me stating a faulty horn switch. Anger vanished & the smile was back on my face.

Smile is indeed a beautiful gesture. Have it ! Be Honest !

Last Letter To Mom..

October 16 2011

I went to a party Mom,
I remembered what you said.
U told me not to drink,
Mom,So I drank soda instead.

I really felt proud inside, Mom,
The way you said I would.
I didn't drink and drive, Mom,
Even though the others said I should.

I know I did the right thing, Mom,
I know you are always right.
Now the party is finally ending, Mom,
As everyone is driving out of sight.

As I got into my car, Mom,
I knew I'd get home in one piece.
Because of the way you raised me,
So responsible and sweet.

I started to drive away, Mom,
But as I pulled out into the road,
The other car didn't see me, Mom,
And hit me like a load.:(

As I lay there on the pavement, Mom,
I hear the policeman say,
"The other guy is drunk," Mom,
And now I'm the one who will pay.

I'm lying here dying, Mom....
I wish you'd get here soon.
How could this happen to me, Mom?
My life just burst like a balloon.

There is blood all around me, Mom,
And most of it is mine.
I hear the medic say, Mom,
I'll die in a short time.

I just wanted to tell you, Mom,
I swear I didn't drink.
It was the others, Mom.
The others didn't think.

He was probably at the same party as I.
The only difference is, he drank
And I will die.
Why do people drink, Mom?
It can ruin your whole life.
I'm feeling sharp pains now.
Pains just like a knife.

The guy who hit me is walking, Mom,
And I don't think it's fair.
I'm lying here dying
And all he can do is stare.

Tell my brother not to cry, Mom.
Tell Daddy to be brave.
And when I go to heaven, Mom,
Put "GOOD BOY " on my grave.

Someone should have told him, Mom,
Not to drink and drive.
If only they had told him, Mom,
I would still be alive.

My breath is getting shorter, Mom.
I'm becoming very scared.
Please don't cry for me, Mom.
When I needed you, you were always there.

I have one last question, Mom.
Before I say good bye.
I didn't drink and drive,
So why am I the one to die?

After Reading this letter few have quit drinking and many have quit habbit of "DRINK & DRIVE". Did You read he said "Someone should have told him, Mom". 

Please "SHARE" this wall post if not for that innocent guy who died then at least for that mother who lost her SON.

NDTV and Times Now are the two leading OPINION makers in India. They telecast their own opinions which contradict each other. These two channels suffer from a dangerous disease called as Acquired Breaking News Virus.

Little kids usually fight with each other for numero-uno position. I finished eating first. I finished doing the homework first. I finished coloring the book first. I finished my potty time first. The kids fight for everything. Competition is in the blood of every human being. This competitive spirit when it crosses the limit transforms into a disease called ABNV. This disease has hit both these channels. This whole disease was discovered a couple of years ago when Ajmal Kasab and co stormed into Mumbai and warred with India. Both these News Channels were fighting with each other trying to claim that they were the first channel to break the News. After that incident, they are Breaking every day. CNN-IBN and Aaj Tak are also transmitters of the ABNV.

Viewers suffer from Breaking News Syndrome when they watch these channels. Children complain that they are seeing the word BREAKING NEWS on their text books. Corporate employees are also complaining that they are seeing the word BREAKING NEWS on their computer screens.

Viewers also suffer from uneasy sleep and nausea. They get bad dreams of Barkha Dutt, Arnab Gowsami and Karan Thappar Breaking their Sleep with Breaking Dreams. My wife Joan got scared when I woke up in the middle of the night shouting "Breaking News Breaking News".

Some of the Breaking News Caption that comes on TV these days

Karunanidhi started fast starts @ 10am and ends @ 1pm
Police arrest everyone on February 22
Man executed after long speech.
Man accused of killing attorney receives a new attorney.
Bihaar's literacy program shows improvement. ( See how Bihar is spelt)
Commissioner of Delhi Police Has Lost His Dog
Finally Commissioner Dog Came to House
Ruling Congress Top Leader Rahul Gandhi Lunch Menu was also a breaking news.
Big B catches a cold.
If you have come across any funny BREAKING NEWS , please post it in the comments section.

Cannot go on anymore

October 14 2011


Do you remember what I used to call you?
Do you remember what I used to tell you?
Do you remember how I used to look at you?
Do you remember how I used to smile at you?

I still remember what you used to call me
Your words still echoes in my heart
I still remember the way you used to look at me
And when I close my eyes your smile mirrors in my mind

When world sleeps around me, I stay wide awake
In the middle of night, your memories
Brings only tears to my eyes and
A lingering ache to my torn heart..

They say “time is the best healer”
But why time cannot heal my wound
Each passing second makes it stronger and deeper
Sinking my conscious to eternal sleep…

They say I walk always in a trance
I don’t see even with my eyes open
Nor do I hear when they shout at me
Do you feel my pain, my slow disintegration?

I search for your face among strangers
I search for your name on all printed letters
I try to see you in people around me
Even trying foolishly to substitute others in your place

I am admitting defeat
Cannot go on anymore
I search for you day and night
Fully aware that you are watching my plight.

All for the Love of a Girl

October 13 2011

How beautiful would that feeling be, to treasure the love of a girl who loves you with a true heart? Do you know how it feels like?!, Sure it ll be a precious gift in life. But having a girlfriend leaves you with a feel good factor that you mean a lot for that special someone. 

Is the world too big or too small?

October 12 2011

Is the world too big for me to hide from things and people I want to avoid?

Or is the world too small that I will keep bumping into people time and again?

Sometimes, giving the chance to reconcile, giving a second chance to what might could have been. Or is plain huge for people to disappear and leave you with regrets and what ifs?

I am unsure if I should believe in 6 degrees of separation or not. But maybe, if I saw some of you later, sometime in my life, I wouldn't feel the way I do right now. And for good measure.

Magic of 90's

October 11 2011

Suddenly I am all nostalgic. Growing up in 90's was so much fun. The magic refuses to fade or maybe I am getting old 

1) Remember Captain Vyom, it was a cult – didn’t Milind Soman look delightful? The space chronicle and the villains of the universe totally hooked my young mind. Then there was Aarohan , a TV serial about youth in Navy starring Pallavi Joshi – I have watched its episodes a zillion times, and every time Wing Cmdr Sidhharth Khurana came into frame, my heart would jump out Watching TV was a pleasure and then came Ekta and her gang. 
2) Love was still innocent. Stealing glances and passing love notes. When sweats became jelly, heart skipped beats and the smile refused to fade on sitting next to your crush. Baggie Trousers and Timex watches were not a medium to hog attention.

3) I adored Rajini Kanth.

4) When a horde of tuition classes were not required to top the class.

5) Language was clean and cuss words weren’t in fashion. Those hush hush words that have now replaced nouns and pronouns. 
6) AR Rahman's entry, Illayaraja's love songs, Little 10th std Anitha, Computer games and 50cc bike races – Power packed Sundays. Remember evening's in roundana @ pollachi, night's with green bottle beer and late night movie's!!! …

7) Maggi wasn’t a staple food.
8 ) We climbed trees, played cricket and swimming. Evenings were meant for running around even with scraped knees, rolling in dust and watching the sun go down. I still remember sneaking out on Helper bro's bullet to learn bikes and volunteer to walk the neighbor’s dog Pluto. Though it would always end up dragging me behind and fighting with all the other dogs in the park.
9) Having fun wasn’t equivalent to shopping spree or alcohol parties  . And life didn’t feel like it’s fleeting away 

10) Above all Teens won’t call you Uncle. Oh the horror!!!! 

So how were your growing up years?? What makes you nostalgic? 

I hate…………..

October 10, 2011

This is a list of things I hate. So people, take a cue from this and keep away from me if you belong to this list!!
1. Waiting of any kind (more than 10 min.s). Especially when I am alone and 've nothing else to do. Especially when I am hungry. I hate when people say,”Yeah, just a sec.” and then keep on doing their thing while keeping me waiting. I hate when there is a delay in a hotel.

2. I hate long queues. Maybe, that’s the reason I don’t pay MSEB (electricity) bill on time. The long, endless queue just pushes me away………….

3. I hate crowd (I mean jostling crowd), especially at a religious place. I never turn up at a temple on an auspicious day (when people are just dying for darshan).

4. I hate people who act condescendingly. I mean, OK, you are a superman, but keep that to yourself. No need of reminding me of that each and every second!!

5. I hate people who are hell bent on proving their genious. For example, students who die to give answers (shout, actually) in a classroom. Sometimes, they don’t even listen to the question!

6. I hate people who think that all-western is cool and all-Indian is boring.

7. I hate pessimistic people, who will do nothing to change their surroundings and just keep complaining.

8. I hate people who don’t acknowledge another’s efforts and time.

9. I hate rude servants. (this is very common in Tirupur & Chennai).

10. I hate people who are disrespectful to elders.

11. I hate people who worry unnecessarily.

12. I hate dogmatic people, who just don’t change their view even if they have got no logical point.

13. I hate people who are not aware of what’s going on around them, kind of people who read only sports page.

14. I hate boorish people.

15. I hate ostentatious people.

16. I hate sycophants, and it hurts more when I see that it pays more than being hard-working.

17. I hate politicians (yes, all of them).

18. I hate when you request someone to do something, they assure you that it will be done urgently, and then they just forget about it. Ultimately, you get bored of reminding them. (More amusing is the category which don’t even remember anything about your request when you remind.)

19. I hate when I don’t work hard even when it’s required.

20. I hate when I don’t do something even if I want to do that very badly. (Reasons are many……………most common is my diffidence)

21. I hate when my choice goes wrong, This happens mainly in case of clothes. After buying, I realize that this is not what I wanted………………

22. I hate people who lack cell manners. I expected this at least in corporate world. But to my utter shock, no employee's in my office bothers to keep cell in silent mode!

23. I hate when I can’t help my hatred for some people. I just can’t stand them!

24. I hate people when in a conversation with you, keep talking only about themselves.

25. I hate people who force their ideas of fun on others.

Ok, so I think that’s it! (The list is quite longer than I expected………before you hating me i ll wind up!).


October 9 2011

Tell me any one random situation which makes you happy?

The little boy next door said, “Watching rain drops dance and walking barefoot on dew covered grass makes me happy” and his 2 year old sister said, “Smelling garden fresh roses makes me happy”.

My neighbour said, “Listening to good music, reading good fiction, watching cricket and movies makes me happy”.

It was my mother’s turn next, “Cooking for family, relatives, friends and visitors and watch the gleam of satisfaction in their eyes as they eat. Then later, treasure the compliments they give me, that makes me so happy.”

In our lives, we are all united in one big chase and it is -
Happiness is not a permanent state of being, we can’t say that now I have achieved this, I’ll be happy for the rest of my life; we are not primed to feel continuous satisfaction, all we have are happy moments.

Simple joys like watching sunrise, recognizing the smell of first rain, embracing evening breeze, etc leave us with a feel of happiness.

Happiness is also connected to our age. What makes us happy as a teenager might look completely silly at thirty one.

For a person who is surrounded by a caring, loving family, happiness goes beyond just planning and achieving goals in life.

Happiness is always within us; it is that inner satisfaction we feel. And helping without expecting a reward gives us true happiness.

To a lot of us, happiness comes in tiny packets, it’s simply the everyday miracle of finding the cell phone, bike keys, searching for something since long and suddenly we find it, it definitely gives us a smile.

Things like short commutes, playing with a group of kids, an evening with life-long friends, a book that brings joy - have nothing to do with a fat wallet, all they need is open heartiness.

Whatever you do, make sure that you don’t derive happiness from hurting others. Approach life with a sense of humour and when worries lash, face them boldly.

When you don’t have any regrets in life and have a healthy body and a happy family, happiness is all yours - Super Star Rajini Kanth

Happy Ayudha Pooja!

Prabhupepsi wishes all his viewers a very happy Ayudha Puja. Also celebrated as Saraswathi Pooja, this day is the last day of the Navaratri festival. And the story goes like this; On this day Arjuna retrieved his weapons, which he had hidden in a Vani tree, in order to lead a life in disguise for the promised period of exile. Ayudha Pooja is a worship of whatever implements one may use in one's livelihood by placing these implements on an altar to the Divine.
Tomorrow is Vijayadasami, the day on which it is believed that one who begins or renovates his learning to work will secure a grand success as Arjuna did in Kurukshetra war.

We wish everyone a very happy Ayudha Puja!

Promise 1
“Hey Beautiful…” he winked at her. She just couldn’t help smiling.
Those beautiful dimples of hers, behind that careless lock of hair caressing her face could make any guy fall in love. Siva was no exception.
“Do you love me?” she asked.
“More than my life, Sakthi…” he promised with a peck on her cheeks.


Promise 3

Time had moved on, and so had Siva.
“Hey Gorgeous…” he winked at her. She just couldn’t help smiling.
“You are the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen” he hugged her tight.
She smiled shyly and asked him, “Do you love me?“
“More than my life, Aadhiti…” he promised with a peck on her cheeks.


Promise 2
It was 1 AM when the Doctor met Siva.
“We did everything we could, but the bleeding wouldn’t stop.“
“Sakthi was going to die.” he was told.
She held his hands, tears in her eyes, and made him promise.
He was going to love their new born more than his life.
They named her – Aadhiti

Happy Computer's day!

October 3 2011

Today is Computer's day. Yes computer was found by Prabhupepsi on October 3rd 1998.....I bought my first ever computer this day. That's why every year I celebrate this day as my computer day. 
Computer Engineers are the breed you find everywhere these days. During the days when my big brother SARAV ANNA toiled hard in the Anna University campus for his computer engineering degree, only 1% of the college going population took engineering as a course. But today only 1 % of the college going population do not take engineering as a course. Everyone is an computer engineer these days.

What do you do after you are done with your computer engineering degree? "I really don't have a clue" is the answer that almost all the computer engineers give. Prabhupepsi is also an computer engineer. He did his MS in Information Technology. His first regular job was in an IT firm as a system analyst. This is the specialty of computer engineers in India. You can do a course in mechanical engineering, aeronautics, communications and even in civil engineering. But you all will one day become a software engineer.

You might be now sitting in a cubicle coding and testing all java nonsense and if you just think about those engineering days where you did not have a clue about what you would become in future, just be happy that you are a computer engineer now.

The author of this page is a product of Bharathiyar university. The more the pages used in examinations, the more marks the students get in the exams. This is the secret mantra of those days. Things have gone worse these days. Now you don't even have to write papers after papers. All you need to do is chase them. (If only you get what I mean).

We are all born engineers. There is an engineer inside everyone of us. We will all realize our potential one day.
Kunjumon realising the potential to convert a LapTop into an i-Pod.
Just Imagine what would have happened to him if the laptops had not been invented. Inserting a desktop like this would have been really painful

Gabdun is a a Gomblede Enginearing Bradecd.

What ever said and done, engineers aren't that lucky. Either you have to be a Richard Gere or Swami Gilfanandha to get into the peck books of Shilpa

Note : Anushka's childhood ambition was to become a Computer Engineer too.

Eradicate Poverty! How???

October 2 2011

The Planning commission of India has made a wonderful statement in its affidavit to the supreme court. According to the affidavit an individual income of Rs.25 per day is enough to push a person above the poverty line. This statement reminds me of my Ethics Professor who always believed in confusing us if he couldn't convince us.

The Poverty line is now fixed at Rs 4284 per month in cities. If only such benchmark were adopted in the world of sports, Indian football team would qualify for football world cup, Sania Mirza would win a grand slam and Ishant Sharma would become the opening batsman for India. I stand 177 cms tall (Short). If the planning commission had made changes to measurements and if 1 foot had been made equal to 25 cms, I would be 7.08 feet tall. I can also call myself a Seven footer.
The 21st September 2011 issue of The Hindu (Page14- Chennai Edition) stated that the Annual salaries of the top three corporate heads of India ( Naveen Jindal, Kalanithi Maran, Kaveri Maran) for the year ended March 2011 was more than Rs 140 Crores.

The gap between the rich and the poor is so much in India. The World Bank report says that India is one of the poorest countries in the world. In fact the poverty indicator line pushes India below Bangladesh according to that report.
Sudarshan's Quote on FB made me smile :

Poverty line fixed at Rs 4,284 per month for cities. Great move, if you can't pull people above the poverty line, push the poverty line backwards.- Sudarshan.

Why is the planning commission making such statements? Anyone spending more than Rs 965 per month in Urban India and Rs.781 per month in Rural India will no longer be called as poor. (Rs 32 per day in Urban cities and Rs 26 per day in Rural villages). To add salt to the injury, the fuel prices are going up. We would not mind all these inflation in every single area in our society as long as it does not affect us. We would sit in front of the TV and watch the indefinite fast stunts and the MODIfied definite fast stunt shows. We would listen to NDTV's version and TimesNow version of a story and would assume that as News.

India's growth in the MDG (Millenium Development Goals) program set by the United Nations is pathetic. The following graph according to the statewide development in India shows that more than 85 % of houses in Jharkand do not even have sanitation facility. It is also the home state of our India's cricket captain - Dhoni.
It always feels good when someone appreciates you. But that does not mean that we ought to prove to the world that we are rich when we are not.

The planning commissions health diet suggestion will be snubbed even by my pet dog. If I have to live a healthy life according to the Planning commission, then I have to drink 85 ml of milk , three teaspoons of rice mixed in 20 grams of dhal curry. My 7 year old neighbor laughed at me when I told him about the Planning commissions affidavit.

The whole nation was going all gaga over all the media frenzy maniacs who fasted in front of television. Do we know that many in our country have nothing to eat and hence end up fasting for many days. What is our response to them?

I am sick of all the Babas and the Modis and all their stunts. I am gonna go on an Indefinite Fast to protest against all those who say that they are going to fast for a cause. I am sick of seeing the fuel prices hike. I am sick of the economic crisis that is trapshooting us from down-under. I am angry. Really angry.

OK. I have ranted enough. Let me go and watch some CLT-20 action on TV. Chris Gayle is gonna hammer; the cheer girls are gonna hover and Ravi Shastri is gonna stammer.

If you really feel like doing something for our country, you can make a change in the life of a child living in poverty by helping him/her to have education, food and health care. Click this [link] to Help A Child of India.

The first ever words spoken

October 1 2011

What was the first word you spoke? Researches indicate that 99.99 % of the children utter the word "Mommy" as their first word. The word mommy is mostly uttered in their own vernacular language. The remaining 0.1 % belong to the rebellious category and this 1 % have spoken words other than the usual Mommy. Another weird truth is that these words are spoken by these nutty group of people on the very day they were born. The following pictures reveal this weird truth.

The first ever words spoken by these people, the moment they were born

Bill Gates - The man who opened the windows of the IT world.

Steve Jobs - Eve ate the apple and sin entered the world
Apple fell on Newton's head. Physics went bonkers
Steve bit an apple. Windows Shut.

 Anna Hazare! I still prefer Anna Kournikova any day

The Real Raja

Mike - The lethal left punch.

Indo- Pak Connection. ( My dream girl once upon a time)
