Be aware to clear

Support World AIDS Day
Be safe in preventing to
spread the bad message around
there is nothing shying in testing
before marry off and get pregnancy.
In few percent words making a post
over thousands words talk with others
save them further putting at risk

Hesitate, the main problem for young’s
with no idea how to start, above all
whom to talk, where the choice
only education is to clear the chaos,
then the three letter HIV and the
ill four letter AIDS would stay away.

True to yourself, is the best useful thing
you do to the world from spreading ill
It couldn’t be treated, our treatment
feels them to be pessimism is worst
than the disease, so kindly see them
as our child and friend
be supportive and keep them
happier for there strong (long) living days.

Long losing opportunities

Last week we we were sometime engaged in a conversation where that was on the topic of deputy collector. One of my dad’s colleague friend was promoted as a deputy collector of Thiruvanamalai district in mid of this month, who was a same batch and joined at a same period, but my dad was still as an assistance in most backward class department. Then u must know how much we have to be worried where his friend was a deputy collector and dad in very lower level, we didn’t jealous on him, but felt to express our sorrow of missing that great opportunity. We can blame only ours than non for missing this value, but it hurts me and my family which makes him to stop accepting the opportunities, trainings, promotions for higher departments.

He was offered for promotion many times in demanding to get post in some other districts, but to avoid being away from us he refused to accept the great opportunities. Because for me to maximum and leaving his age-old mother and for other dense in family he rejected when all his colleagues and friends put on promotions and enjoying privilege. I don’t know in which way am I going to return for all his sacrifice, when ever someone ask about his status in the government service he really feel struggle to answer that he is still an assistant, but in a senior position. What solace is that he has good values in working place, between friend circle with his colleagues who where in higher ranking, his wordings where responsible.

What’s happening could be easily understandable that everything he concedes is for the affection and care he got on us. He realize how difficulty it could be to handle a physically unable young, whether if he left, only mom to that care alone and this was the first reason said no to all. For our comfort, he give away to destroy his dreams and desires. Even today he worries telling about it that he must been gone, many of well wishes urged to accept the opportunities left, but he not even to think about putting us in stress. Sure me and bro would be harden without dad, from brushing the teeth, dropping in school and waiting for his arrival from office in evening to go sleep we look for him. Though he goes for any official camps, he never forgets a single day to call to enquire us. I have no future without him; it may puzzle who is lucky, where to born for very affectionate parents are they for having us. Thanks dad for scarifying and showing special love on me.

Lights on

Lighten the earthen-lamps on Karthigai Theepam that glows in brighten orange, around the windows, gateway to the worshiping brass lamps fired in new wicks into the oiled lamps. Its familiar follow-up to lighter as soon the huge lamp of Thiruvannamalai were set to fire above the hill of Arunachaleswarar Temple. Thanks to the television channel, for live telecast of the lamp festival of Thiruvannamalai, where it easily to know when the lamp lit to fire.

Weekend was good for me, to spend sometimes with my dear cousin sister. She arrived at evening and stayed till night and my aunt and cousin was to join the evening it was happy movement. When the time I was wishing to share, she was not, but I could now share the pictures that took at some movements and festival shots as well she brought me some snaps of her diwali and here recent visit to some places in south.

Usual beach visit was to happen on Sunday, this time after sunsets fully and an exciting sight of Full Moon was their. Visible slowly in deep pink and by time to time changes its color of a rising sun at early morning and comes above in yellow signal. First time in this season of winter, very cold wind was felt and a small disappoint for leaving the camera at home to capture the wonderful evening in pictures. Below is few pics from Theepam.

Vettri Vel (Victory spear)

Its better I conform it was not a Vijay film! Punch dialogue is punching much at the beginning scene of Vel (spear). Usual double role subject, but new to surya after the average success of SOK. The story narrated from a train journey where a parents lost one of there twins and both grown in a different places. Younger one working as a detective office, living with parents and elder one as brave hero in a big family at a village near Dindukkal. Without any confusion the screenplay played well showing the two environments in very neat manner, where saranya the mother of twins always with tears and thinking about his very lose son gives a usual distress felt when will skip to another scene. Even there was no bright romance, Asin comes beautiful, charming in that stylish glass with a cleanly washed face helps to know about elder surya to younger. Where the highlights of the chasing comes when the villain’s group attempt to kill younger one who looks alike elder Vel and the bus busting and rising up to meters high and crashing on the ground is unneeded but amazing, where in next time it wont wonder even if they rise the train or flight to meters high.

Naasar comes littler when adopting his found son vel and to introduce the opponent Kalabavan mani in flashback, where the enmity continues till vel generation. The race between the villain and hero comes forward; back on exchanging loses, when only after vasu (younger Surya) enters, it pickups in a different interesting intelligently move that was in impersonation of elder as younger. Kalabavan mani tries to kept a separate place for his humorist villain. How does the both solves the problem of mani and the sentiment between the lost and found family of elder son vel was said in family affection and very fast last with action is what takes the film without boring and it was the pulse of director Hari. After convinced that the story tells don’t sharpen the sword, sharp your brain then why the director gave a violent in climax with villain disputes.

I expect always an interesting and positive movie from hari, but if he reduces the more weapons and violence it suits for a whole family drama. About comedy, where our southern storm vadivelu binds with his attractive and simplify, but his usual stupid way of losing things is like painting with empty brush. Elder surya shows his last six (Aaru) face in single frame and younger one have to be balance of smart SOK look. Songs are rural touch, Kovakkara Kiliye… is most beautiful in all, the backdrop and countryside’s are fresh green and blue are soothing to vision. Aayiram Jannal Vedu …gives an idyllic feel; it shows the happiness of a joint-family. In the intro a thought, it would be attracting between people if this was a release for pongal. Yuvan’s music at background creates flurry at action sequences, but i felt as he have used his old tunes in songs, where from his last village based movies. Surya had tries to copy his bro karthi’s renown in this film, but some how that scene got whistle from audience. The cinematography is better in quality, the cameraman V.T Vijayan gives a force in action and slower in sentiments, in Tamil industry he is one with not grand, but best.

I hear vel is a well doing film in diwali releases. After Arul the old movie of hair, it happens that I have been continuously watching his films in theater. This time it was the rain disturbed for few minutes and the sea breeze lift ups the mood except watching film at drive-in.

Good to Feel Half Clean

With his paws spread wide and taking a step up on to a cup of tea, this little piggy tries desperately hard to make himself big and strong. But there's nothing getting away from the fact that he is still no bigger than a tea cup.

Fun mugs with animal noses on the base. It seems like a normal white mug until you use it.

Children attend class at the Dongzhong (literally meaning "in cave") primary school at a Miao village in Ziyun county, southwest China's Guizhou province. The school is built in a huge, aircraft hangar-sized natural cave, carved out of a mountain over thousands of years by wind, water and seismic shifts. more here

Typically the shark is going so fast that it shoots out the sea as it bites the seal mid-body with its 3,000 razor-sharp teeth. Attacks rarely happen when the seal is underwater as it is too agile. But on the surface it has only one way to go down exactly where the shark is coming from.

Why 3000 chicks crossed the road, brought the traffic to a standstill on a busy road near Glasgow?

Cartoons and kids

Today with easy available of cartoon channels kids has good time pass from studying stress and in between going to school, but every kids are only watch cartoons is what not, because of spreading cinema and it related programs they caught by attention. I was to read some views on metro plus about cartoons and kids. Everyone had some positive things to tell like cartoon develop kids knowledge on history, culture, mythology… and makes them learn more and remember what they learnt, there vocabulary improves and a lot and also negative things like violent cartoon scenes changes their mind and behavior and general things like affecting the vision. There are many good cartoons that liked without age difference for example Tom and Jerry, Donald duck, Popeye but these happen to be older and rare to watch them these days.

Cartoons do a quite works for home kids, where parents get relief for sometime in care taking them. Today cartoon channels have been present in all languages, and it also solves the language problem to kids. My uncle’s one year kid in one in this category, where he loves to watch cartoons and his favorite is Bumba on Chutti Tv. He just lies down in his bed and starts to laugh and enjoy watching. When making to know what was there in this program to interest him, it has become one of my favorite shows now. Another thing that makes interest me to watching cartoon channel is the information that explains the history, scientific experience and life time of scientist and different cultures in understand method. When I try to convince my cousins to know some specific programs on cartoon channels, they replay me these are bore and need some movie, songs.

Those days the only cartoon interest us was the Moogly, it would be telecasted on Sunday morning in Doordharshan and another one was super Heman Samurai on every Thursday evening. When leaving to 6th we brought the cable channels and it has 24 hours of Cartoon channel and later after leaving school me and bro have to spend some times on watching and never understand what they talk and just find the story as it moves, but today there was no language problem and with good English, kids pickup easily. Except the cartoon, there are some other children’s channel like Pogo and Jetix. The Jetix have the more violence action programs and also little glam I feel. Where the actions were taken by children into practice with their mates, I visible them directly through by cousins when they use that actions in between the kindle fights with others. The elders have to aware them what is good to take and what to leave; I realize there is many to learn from cartoon channels and cute things to admire.

Cross marriage

Our people always have come with reason to tell for their superstition. In rural village sides they call donkey marriage, when they organize a wedding between a male and female donkey, where they hope it will bring rain, after that it was frog wedding and every village has their own way for superstition, according to some tradition. Here the reason is different in Selakumar and Selvi’s marriage, actually it’s a kalappu tirumanan (mixed marrage).

Selvakumar, a 34 year old farmer from Tamil Nadu’s Sivagangai district have been stoned to dead two dogs in his rice field and hang them on a tree some 15 years ago and felt unfortunate. He was clueless when he later disabled from hearing, speaking and walking, but where he find an astrologer he told him he was cursed by the spirits of the dogs he had killed and to curse only if he marry a dog and live with it. Then, after a long search he found his pair selvi a four-year-old mongrel bitch and the wedding took place at a Hindu temple. Where Selvi was dressed in sari and flowers and brought to temple and the proceeding where held with a priest before cheering crowds.

The poor selvi was however attempted to escape from them, but was eventually traced down and returned to her new husband. But safely this dog is only for lifting the curse and after that he plans to get a real bride. BBC News

Early Sunday

Children playing on the seashore sand
and also playing on the seashore road
on the morning time, mind change
went in find to sea at early.

Here and there kept standing and
playing cricket, where crowd rise without down
throwing walking, a little relaxation
there and allover by our people.

With little drizzling and chillness zephyr
where new sense blows on my face
a soothing surrounding omnipresent
losing the expectation, and
gaining a new experience on this day
is a happy Sunday.

Mountain and Children

"A son and his father were walking on the mountains.
Suddenly, his son falls, hurts himself and screams: "AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!"
To his surprise, he hears the voice repeating, somewhere in the mountain: "AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!"
Curious, he yells: "Who are you?"
He receives the answer: "Who are you?"
And then he screams to the mountain: "I admire you!"
The voice answers: "I admire you!"
Angered at the response, he screams: "Coward!"
He receives the answer: "Coward!"
He looks to his father and asks: "What's going on?"
The father smiles and says: "My son, pay attention."
Again the man screams: "You are a champion!"
The voice answers: "You are a champion!"
The boy is surprised, but does not understand.
Then the father explains: "People call this ECHO, but really this is LIFE.
It gives you back everything you say or do.
Our life is simply a reflection of our actions.
If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart.
If you want more competence in your team, improve your competence.
This relationship applies to everything, in all aspects of life;
Life will give you back everything you have given to it."

-- Unknown Author

Children's are like Echo, they are reflections of elders and parents. What it should be sound is in ours, to close the ears or allowing to listen. Children must be the rhythm to swing and not noisy to disconcert.

Happy Children’s Day

Today song from Satham Podaathay, very cure and sweets as well my recent favorite. Whoever watches this song would forgive anything and put pleasuring the movement.

(De)lighting deepavali

I am back to routine life from the mood in festival of lights. I hope every one had a wonderful celebration around the time of deepavali. I felt that I am the only in celebrate mood on festival in interest at my family, other were in differently occupied there interest. Some where was on search of getting tickets for first show in diwali release movies; some busy in buying DVD at low price in diwali sale. Where else the sound of crackers heard before and after and on diwali day, the skies were open to flow of colorful fireworks from all sides. Where in suburbs the celebration was more than city, they started from onwards. Just wondering whom would be waked this time to burst crackers, but they do. It was early morning we planed to take bath, but anyway it was only after 7am to get ready, wearing new clothes, watching television from morning to late afternoon, having special dish after worshiping. A day before diwali I went to beach with dad, picking my cousin at there place, a crowd less time in beach, where little sight of fireworks, girls and to maintain like with out watching them when being with cou sis and some physically challengers find there time spending.

By afternoon I received by cousin brother whom I looking forward, he bust crackers where I watch. In my apartment there was no space doing for fireworks, filled with cars and not easily going surrounding, we were to leave for my uncle’s place in neelankarai (a suburb). I wished now that I was there… really it was around beautiful times full of colors flowing without leaving a minute gap of fireworks flashing on the sky. A highly rich area, very bungalow residents leaving the sky outs fireworks continuously. There we join with uncle and cousins, we happily enjoyed with firecrackers and don’t want to miss the colors and on my wish we stayed till restricted time of 10. The much waited of the celebration was on next day we call it nombu. It was small get together of my own family; the very happier time was getting my grandpa and ma on this day, it was great to have dinner along with every one.

Like how I had fun, the same I was boredom on Saturday, completer silent from cracker sounds, television and no mood looking at papers; but did to find some thing related to diwali. It was solace report there were limited pollution on noise and smoke, where the sound was kept below 76 decibel from the maximum of 126 decibel allowed. I feel the trend is changing from bombs to fancy fireworks that bring colors lights in night, in cities the sounds where less, but in suburb there is limitless enjoying on fireworks. Weekend have some relatives to home, to share sweets and smiles. There were many plans dropped to spend in holidays and what my wheelchair did was helpful, I could move on my own inside the enjoyment free from many other stresses. Thanks a lot to all who wished me, surprised me in cards, calling, wording. Below are some pics from festival:

Partaking deepavali

Deepavali is everyone’s favorite festival. We all look for that day comes in a year. There were many stories told to celebrate this festival, but this is a festival were we celebrate happily, joining with family, friends, neighbors without seeing where they belong to. Its festival of lights to burn in our lives and wishing all bright fullness, goodness to spreads. What the main attracts about this event is crackers and bursting sounds; we can’t obligate that from our thoughts, but what it was reducing is also true. No one there will be without enjoying fireworks, amazing on seeing beautiful colors coming out from it, kids holding the color matches witsmiles like the twinkles from it, where the night sky flashes with different colors and shapes of fireworks doing magic is an wonderful sight for all without age difference. At this movement we also need to understand the problems that create by fireworks. I feel the first problem was cleared; that was using child labor in making crackers. Conspicuously it was aware by the labels in fireworks where “no child labors involved”. What next is pollution of air and noise. Fireworks hold various chemical to bring colors and lights to make us happy and also release the smoke that injures to health and rising noised that are against animals and sick patient.

Even though we can’t fully stop this, and the happiness of seeing fireworks magic. But can reduce it. For this we need unity in celebration. Instead of just bursting at all corners and outside our gateway, we can bring people in crowd at a specific place or our streets, colony and apartment resides to gather and celebrate the fireworks. Because of this, the money spent on buying and using fireworks are reducing, as well we also enjoyed the festival of sharing the fireworks and avoiding more environmental degenerate. What the real meaning of the festival is burning lamps, Deepavali. But many of us not following it, It’s in our tradition of lightning the earthen lamps and we could see it on the upcoming full moon day after the diwali. Actually is adds beauty to this particular festival of lights where the whole home brighten in yellow the auspicious time.

How could be with out a sweetness for a festival that brings happiness to all. Many of us (including we) prepare and using from long back of making our own sweets Athirasam, the traditional South Indian sweet and distribute to relatives and neighbors. But the shops todays are coming out in making new designs of sweets with vary taste that attracts people to buy on diwlai. The breakfast and lunch we have on the day would be very special with varies dishes from pongal, idly sambar...
what we really never forget is the new cloths, even we fail, the attractive advertisement on television by forefront shops could create a wish in us. It starts from a month before and it was not new nowadays where all festivals have some special ads on TV for people. These days it was beautiful advertisements by models, bringing stylish and traditional costumes those sure make girls to try them at this time and we boys just enjoy the mood of seeing them.

This time the festival at Thursday and next day Friday would be mostly off from schools, works and weekend coming. I hope there will be great entertainment and enjoyment on diwali holidays, and SMS, greetings, emails would be flying to loved ones and I sure myself do not forget to wish this movement some of our friends who are going to celebrate ‘thalai deepavali ` (first deepavali after marriage) I hope they come this side to get my greeting too. Happiness for u all, enjoy :)

To bring back

Distance is not that much, your heart`s
awe taking you away from me
I know the awful distance maintained,
I homologate whatever reason u must tell.
Unconditional innocent fancy never ever
adjusted to the reality, continue to exist.
I can`t assure breezing throughout your life
and that stop me expressing the right

Upcoming are celebration times, I miss you
and wish you to bring memorable times
months gone, I met you last, still thinking
wherever the name breaks in relation
these are merely avoidable in life, where
the same days of colors flows allover, and
frustrate stands along in experience

the brass lamp of our family
glows the festival of lights, brighter
more in your flowing smiles, and
the rejoice of lightening glister crackers.
Those movements are not away, if world
thinks about your desire of living, before
the vivid belief dim lighten forever… …..
