One day I will also die!

One day I will  also die
I don't know how that would be.

It might be an accident; a peaceful one in sleep; a murder or a natural disaster
I don't know how that would be

When my body is laid to rest, would I look handsome?
I don't know how I would look.

Some may cry; Some may be happy; many might not even know that I am gone
I don't know how that would be

My loved ones might be around my body; They would be talking about me; Many would lie and say all good things about me. At the same time there would be people who would say, "Good riddance"
I don't know how that would be

I have come across different people in my life. I have helped a few; I have been a pain for many. Have befriended many; Unfriended a few. Friends are many and foes are there too. But when I am gone, would I still leave a scar in your heart?

This post might be heavy; I am not the only one who is gonna die. You will die too. 

When you are alive, have you brought happiness to someone? That's the sole reason for the existence of  this blog. 

I am sure it would have made someone smile at some part of their lives. 

Some posts might not have had the humour touch.; but still I strive to make someone in some part of the world to forget their sadness and smile. If you are planning to do something today, do it today. Don't postpone it. Pick that phone and reconcile with that someone with whom you have not spoken.

Life is Short.
Keep Smiling.
Spread the Smiles.

Buffalo Dreams

My great great great grand father was a shepherd boy. He used to roam around the Southern part of the country with a herd of Buffaloes. 

When I was in class ten, my father would tell me that he would buy me some buffaloes and make me take care of them, if I scored low marks in exams. That thought would scare me and I would study well. 

But when I picture it now, I realize that it would have been fun. Imagine walking in the roads of Chennai in formal attire along with a Buffalo. Would not it be cool? 

My cousin sharmi thinks that owning a Labrador boosts his social status. She takes her huge dog for a walk in the evenings. She also has a huge Bull dog that actually looks like a Pig that rammed its face in a truck. Those dogs are her prized possession.  

If walking with huge dogs boosted her ego by making her think that she was in the elite club in the society, just imagine how it would have been if I were walking on the roads with a Buffalo. I would have made Sharmi feel so inferior that she would have start treating mongrels equally.

Some people's fart are so strong that when ever they fart the walls of the house start shaking. My friend Manoj  (name not changed) is an expert in the art of farting. He always farts out loud with DTS effect. His gaseous exploits are powerful than the sound released by a 500 CC Royal Enfield bike. 

The other day we were in a lift and he did what he does best and the make up of a girl in the lift fell off from her face. It came as a surprise to us because after the make up fell down, I could actually recognize her. I said Hi to her and we had lunch together. I should thank Manoj for that fartistic attack without which I would not have recognized Sheeba.

Today I met a girl in the lift and when she smiled at me, I did not recognize her. 

She: Hi Prabhu How are you?

Me: Excuse me! But do we know each other?

She : Man! I am Sheeba.

If only manoj had been there in the lift along with me, her make up would have fallen off and I would have recognized her. Sad, that he was not there in the lift. Sheeba's make up had a similar smell that was in our house when we painted our house.

How did I end up writing about Manoj in this post? It still beats me. I am yet to figure out how my thought process works. May be, Manoj's back and the Buffalo's back looked similar.

If you are thinking that I am insulting my friend Manoj in this post, you should realize that I am actually doing him a favour. He copies my blog posts and circulates it in our google groups as if he wrote it. He does not read any post.

So I am sure he would just read the headline and see the buffalo picture and would arrive at the conclusion that this blog is a funny post on buffaloes. Before he finds out that this is actually a tribute to him, it would be too late.

This is for him enjoy machan!

Yoga vs Vodka

Yoga is 1) an art form for some; 2) a meditation technique for a few others and 3) a way of life for many. 

Different forms of Yoga are being taught in many places around the globe.

Vodka on the other hand is a Potato flavoured juice which is mixed with a little bit of ethanol. 

Vodka is also 1) an art form for some; 2) a meditation technique for a few others and 3) a way of life for many.

This blog post will dig deep into the science behind these art forms and also come up with an analytical result of why one form is better than the other.

The Subject of the blog is a give away. You already know the answer. So I am gonna make it simple and easy for you. I will just tell the various reasons why Vodka is better than Yoga. 

Let us take a sample pose of both these art forms. From Yoga I have chosen HalasanaPose and from Vodka I chose KalpanaBales.

Halasana  - Is a pose where you have to lie on your back, place both palms facing the ground. Then you have lift your leg and place it on the ground as shown in the above picture.

Kalpana - Is a pose where you will first place your leg on the bench and drop your head to the floor with a thud sound

1) While performing Halasana you will be conscious of your surroundings. But while performing Kalpana you will be unconscious. 

2) You normally need a mat to perform Halasana. But to perform Kalpana, you do not need any mat. You can even perform this pose in a ditch.

3) Halasana is a basic level art form. Kalpana is challenging and more advanced level of art form

4) In the Yoga pose, only the shoulder muscles come into play. But in the Vodka pose, the shoulder, head, neck and even your groin muscles play a vital role.

5) While performing Yoga, you can't trust your farts. But you can always put your trust on Vodka because even if you fart out loud, you won't even know.

6) You need to learn Yoga from a tutor. But to perform Vodka, you don't need a tutor because Vodka by itself is a tutor. Vodka will make you an artist by bringing out the best in you even without your knowledge.

7) Some Yoga instructors will ask you to perform Yoga with a solemn music playing in the background. To perform Vodka, you don't need any music. Music will automatically start playing inside your head.

8) You don't get a head ache by performing Yoga. But on most ocassions you will have a hang over and a splitting headache after performing Vodka. This also means you give more employment opportunities to physicians. Vodka gives employment and earning opportunities to others in the society. 

These reasons are more than enough to prove that Vodka is better than Yoga on any given day.

வருந்தாதே பிரபு !

வருந்தாதே பிரபு
வாய்ப்பிழந்து போகவில்லை 

காலத்தின் ஒரு பகுதி
நீ கடந்திருப்பது

இன்று தெளிந்தாலும் 
நீ முழுமை நோக்கி
முதலடி வைக்கலாம் 

ஒரு வகையில் நீ புத்திசாலி
சந்தையில் சம்பாதித்தவர்க்கிடையில்
ஒரு சந்தையை சம்பாதித்தவன்

ஒரு நாள் குகைப்பிளவு
ஒரு நாள் மரக்கிளை 
ஒரு நாள் தின்னையில்
அடுத்தொரு நாள் மாளிகையில் 

அன்று உணர்வாய்
நீயல்லாத நீதான் 
நீ என்று!
