KANAVU MEIPADA VENDUM






Everyone of us has an unfulfilled desire inside us, which keeps on burning in our subconscious mind. whenever we read or see something related to it, it suddenly jumps out from our subconscious mind. My dream is to learn bharatnatyam. During my childhood days, we lived in a big house, with a long verandah and it used to be my nadana medai. but my dreams didnt come true, jus bcos i wear glasses. i wore power glasses at the age of 10 and my mom would say, how could u learn dance, when u are wearing glasses? how would u perform with ur glasses. i would not blame my mom, she really didnt mean to discourage me, but she was innocent enough, she did not know that i can replace glasses with contact lens. so,the dream came to an end,but my passion still continues, i would jus imagine myself performing whenever i see someone perform. my cousin and my very best friend is a classical dancer. whenever she performs, i will be there to watch it. i really adore the way the great actress padmini dances,my favorite ones are "kannum kannum kalandu" and "maraindirundhu paarkum marmam enna?".
Even today when i watch these songs, I cannot resist my dancing desire jumping out of my subconscious mind and question me.i hope my passion turns into reality, atleast in my next birth. who knows? let me hope for the best. may be i can still learn. there is no age for learning.

where is humanity??

A tamil weekly published some shocking pictures on its cover. the pictures depicted the last dying minutes of an infant that was jus nine days old.
The person who took these pictures in his mobile had gone to a private hospital to visit a patient. he overheard some nurses speaking abt a child, and his doubt increased when he heard a child's cry from a near by room and he started investigating it when no one answered him properly.
Later, he found out that this child developed some complications in his mother's womb. this was found out in the eighth month. the doctors warned the parents that either the child would die inside or even if the mother delivers the baby it wont last long.
the parents pray the child to be born dead. but the child was born . here is where its horrible fate starts. since the baby had many complications, they decided to let the baby die, so they shut it a lonely room in the hospital without mother's milk or water.(with the support of the hospital of course)
when the person who brought this news out, had visited the hospital he bribed a servant there and entered into the room to find whether thats true and thats where he took photos of the dying child, beside the fact that he got shocked at the very sight of the baby.
he could not come out of the shock till the next day and when he approached the magazine a day later, the team went to the hospital to check it out and they found out that the child died that morning and the body cremated and the reason they found out in the medical certificate is that the child developed malaria and so died.
what a cruel thing to do a child? do we have the right to take a life?that too in
way this much cruel?if really the parents could not take care of such a child, they could have left it to any social organisations who would have took care and the child would have met death in a more peaceful way. how could doctors support such a thing ? now , mercy killing is something different, they are done in a
more peaceful way(i am not supporting it.)

where are we going? where is humanity ? are we going back to stone ages, where humans behaved like animals?

THE SECRET OF LIFE















"Take two heaping cups of patience,
One heartful of love,
Two handsful of generosity,
Dash of laughter,
One headful of Understanding,
Sprinkle generosity with kindness,
Add plenty of faith and mix well,
Spread over a period of life - time,
serve to everyone you meet."

A WEDDING, A KUTCHERI, AND ME.

Attending a wedding reception is always a threat to me. mainly bcos i hate crowd,and secondly i cannot stand the light music performance(its not like i hate light music, i am an illayaraja fan myself, personally i feel that cine songs do not fit in a wedding). so when i had to attend my friend's reception, i started late. when i decided to take my two-wheeler, my mom said "no way,usha". though i have been riding a two wheeler for more than 10 years, she is afraid of my safety, while riding in peak hour, that too to t.nagar. so, i had to take a bus.
now this was the harder part, riding in a bus, in peak hour, that too in route no.47 was like hell. but later i thanked my mom, since the traffic was very heavy and i would have found it difficult to go thro that traffic in my scooty. finally i reached my destination. thanks to the strike by private conservancy workers, the place was stinking like anything.
The wedding hall was full of chaos, i found my friend, wished her and settled in a chair. one thing i really like in a crowded place is , i really like to observe people. so ippidiye pozhutha ottinen. Around 7pm ,the music performance started, since they had mentioned a mandolin kutcheri, i expected two ladies, dressed in glittering pattu sarees, heavy make-up, ornaments. but to my surprise, two little(i meant that really they were short)girls around 15 years, simply clad in salwars walked up on the stage and for the following one hour, we were treated with great music, particularly when they played "enthero mahanu bavalu","kurai ondrum illai", "thanthana pure", we were overjoyed. it was so pleasing to find those girls rendering their talents. i really regretted that i didnt have a chance to learn music in such an earlier stage(later found out that they have been performing from the age of seven). the girls' father was sitting next to them on stage, certainly overjoyed withpride.
it is a boon to become a good musician(my mom used to say"athukellam punniyam senjirukanum"). i couldn't sit thro the whole kutcheri,since it was getting late. the stage where the bride and the bridegroom were present was crowded and i had stand to in a queue to reach them(ippelaam engengu kaninum queue)and a queue to the dining hall too . atlast i managed to come out around 8.30pm and to my surprise,a not so crowded bus back home. what a journey!!(Travelling in a city bus in a peak hour is like travellingto outstation places.)

Nice puzzle - try to crack it ...

Once there was a bus conductor, who was very rude to his passengers.

One day a beautiful young girl, of around 18 years,tried to board the bus,
but he didn't stop the bus.

Unfortunately the beautiful young girl came under the bus and died on the spot. Angry passengers took the conductor to the police station, who in turn took him to the court.

The judge was not at all impressed with him and gave him capital
punishment.

He was taken to the electrocution chamber. There was a single chair in the
center of the room and a single banana peel at one corner of the room. The
conductor was strapped to the chair and high voltage current was given to
him. But to everyone's amazement, he survived. The judge decided to set him
free, and he returned to his profession.

After a few months, this time, a good looking middle aged woman tried to board the bus but the conductor didn't stop the bus. Unfortunately, this time also, the good looking middle aged woman came under the bus and died on the spot.

Again angry passengers took him to the police station, who in turn
took him to the court. The judge took one look at the conductor and gave
him capital punishment. The Bus conductor was taken to the same electrocution




chamber where there was a single chair in the center of the room and
a single banana peel at one corner of the room. He was strapped to the
chair and high voltage current was given to him. This time also to
everyone's amazement, he survived. The judge decided to set him free, and
he returned to his profession.

A couple of months later, an elderly gentleman tried to board the
bus. This time the Bus conductor, remembering his earlier experiences,
stopped the bus. Unfortunately the elderly gentleman slipped and died due to his
injuries. The conductor was taken to the police station and then to the court, to the same judge. Though he hadn't done anything wrong, but considering his past record the judge decided to set an example and gave him capital punishment.
The Bus conductor was again taken to the same electrocution chamber where there was a single chair in the center of the room and a single banana peel at one corner of the room. He was strapped to the chair and high voltage current was given to him.

This time he died instantly !!!!!!!!!!!

The question is why didn't he die on the first two occasions, but died

instantly the third time??

Try to solve it yourselves. This is rather interesting and answer is

perfectly logical. If necessary read the puzzle once again.

Still you couldn't, Then see below.........

think hard

common yaar.............

tired....

wanna know the answer????

ok........ there is the Answer............

During the first two times, the conductor was a Bad Conductor,
therefore electricity didn't pass through him. But during the third time,




he was a good conductor, so electricity passed through him freely and
he died !!!!!!!!

Ha Ha Ha ha !!!!!!!! Obviously you gotta revise your science chapter

on Electricity ???

ARE'NT THEY HUMANS

They eat,walk,run,breathe like us, but are we treating them as one of us? We tease them, laugh at them and run away from them. dont they deserve to live a normal life. i am talking about the people who live the most toughest life on earth, who is a mystery to themselves!. yes, they are the eunuchs.
we can see them everywhere around us, but are we treating themas normal beings? we can see them beg in shops, dressed in ladies'attire, with many pairs of eyes looking at them as though they belong in a circus. they are humiliated at no fault of theirs. when thesepeople realise that they are made like that by birth, when they transform into the opposite sex, the society hurts them by everyway they could. when a girls acts as a boy, she is encourged as "bravelike a boy" when it is viceversa, the boys are condemned as "dont act like a girl" and when this particular boy is really transforming into a girl, then the consequences are really bad, if he is not supported by the family. the boy tends to run away, in search of his real family and gets into lot of trouble and finally leading to what i told first, either begging inshops or into sexual vandalism. we should learn to treat them as one of us, as a human being. we can help them by helping them to study, get a job, thus to lead a normal life or atleast help them by talking to them as we talk to everyone.
They are not to be ignored,but to be noticed, in a better way. I have seen some of these people fighting back with the society and leading a normal life. The flowervendor who comes to our flats is one of that kind, we make it a point to buy flowers from him, though it is bit expensive than in the market, bcos we wanted to help him. so it is in our hands to help these persons to lead a normal anddecent life.

Tech: How did you come to that conclusion?
