எல்லாம் நேரம்:

Used to sit in the beach sand, when Jobless, to while away the time...

Ocean has expanded its reach - because of Tsunami
Times have improved - because of who!
I have risen - because of hard work
But now I just don't have the time to sit and enjoy

Evano Oruvan!

I have started going for movies in the weekends. This time it was the movie Evano Oruvan.

It was really heartening to see one more director who has brought out a film with a script that he had in mind, not influenced by "what the audience might think" thought.

It was evident from the way the part before title appeared on screen. So I had my expectations for the movie raised further, though my wish for seeing the movie was initiated by some of the stills and few clippings.

As the movie progressed I had one thing wavering at the back of my mind. Is it going to be another movie where those unrealistic dream songs come into the picture lighting the darkest places of the cinema theatre. But this was a movie that had all the things perfectly placed.....

Yes there was not even one dream song....making this a special one. Though Maddy has been performing well, this one will stand out for the way he had portrayed his character. Credit goes to the director for the way he had gone out and framed the scenes. Maddy being the dialogue writer has done exceptionally well. Even those few words/ sentences from the characters in the movie are too good. This is going to add that extra feather on his cap. Certainly this would be a distinct milestone in his career as well as for the director. Hope to expect few more movies of this kind, that creates social awareness.

Overall it was a real good movie. A must watch movie, particularly for this generation reminding the happenings in and around the society.

Life...thirsty values

It was a long time since I with our office colleagues went to the beach to was nice to play on the sand running & fallin around. We all took a break after couple of hours.

I happened to get into a conversation with an ice cream vendor selling some Brand's products.
He should have been in his teens & had come from one of those little villages in our vast country.

I asked him what he wants to/ aspires to become, thinking of the answers he would give!

He dint say the names of any of the business tycoons, name his role models...inface he was not even aware of the names I told him....and I realised how unrealistic my thoughts have become that I am not able to relate to all the situations of another person.

He said "I want to study".

It really shook me hard. I felt his heart saying "Common dude, do you know whom you are talking to, am neither a pass out from a college with a degree nor a bunch of asset juz one of those who continues to earn my bread skipping my passion for study...He also said Gone is gone no use of talking about it now and stared at the vast sea occassionally looking back to see if anyone is approaching to buy....

There I was standing at the beach at 11 A.M. with all those hard earned marks, degree, current one had to hit me hard with a hammer....those words were enough...

I have been aware of all this since I have been an active member of a welfare organisation. But then these kind of realistic discussions makes us aware of the hardships that are faced by those not so lucky human beings. I wanted to do some justice, gave him hope that hard work always pays n he can study anytime. I always talk to these kind of people, crack some joke, make them laugh for a while...will definitely do something for such people's ambitions in the future when I have enough of that often referred to by some as "most important thing in life".......MONEY

But I will continue to shop clothes & gadgets as I have always been doing....but with a conscience that would remind me....of the place where I am & my fellow human beings.....


Am not an oracious reader....the shelf on the left lists my list of read books. Does not have those philosophical books or research related but just novels, adventure novels...for the type I am....cannot forget the company of them especially when you work monotonously for hours n come back to ur room filled with no one except your glad that I have found a shelf for them...
