Ney veli...

Posting this from Neyveli! I arrived here last night and stayed at friend's home. Drove around quite a bit. And went 4 a walk too.... To someone from Chennai this place is like unbelievable !!

So many empty plots filled with trees amidst houses, uniform houses, perfectly laid straight roads with ABSOLUTELY NO TRAFFIC AT ALL.

This is a huge town-sized quarters !! I saw mud excavated from the mines and the mound was hill-sized! Deva's (the guy's home I stayed at) garden was the size of a small park! This place is very very different from the life style I am used to...

Its a really really nice place to stay for a short while... probably will get bored after a week. Hell, I've not seen more than a dozen ppl on the road all this time I was here :)

My friend's gettin married!

I just heard that my friend Lavanya is getting engaged... Mappilai is from chennai,but working 'down under' rite now! When she told me this, my first sensation wasn't delight, to be truthful ...
I ve known her since my childhood as a schoolmate, a very understanding and extremely loyal friend. She is such a nice person that I've felt at times that I don't deserve such a gr8 friend..
But whenever I come to chennai, I first think about visiting her home and then somethin else would come up. And I was always like, "She is gonna be right here, within 15 mins of drive. We can always catch up later"... And I ve forgotten to return her calls or msgs every now and then.
Little things.. but I wish I had done them.

because now, after june, she will come to India once in what, a yr?

I feel bad that I haven't spent more time with such a great and 'ANCIENT' friend.. Come to think of it, I've known her for over 15 YEARS.

But i also feel happy for her for getting such a good match(an engineer with PG), and a life abroad. If anyone deserves this, its Lavanya! And I feel old, btw! What with getting placed in Infy, 2 months outta-college-project I get the feel of my coll life having gotten over!

But I won't think too much about this, or Ill get Nostalgic..cos once I am in, Ill keep brooding for hrs!! So ill wind up 4 now!

PS: I got placed in Infosys :)

Better to be the king in hell...

Some ppl think that its 'peace' that all humans are after and that we are stuck in these 'worldly problems' on our way to attainment of peace.... They seem to think that once we realize that - we will let go of the desires, greed, envy or even passion and go for 'peace' !!

I wouldn mind them much, except that they manage to convince sane and sensible ppl into thinking so too!

So this guy X who is chasing a promotion or a lover or someone who is toiling for a new home - he suddenly realises that what he is doing is stopping him from being peaceful! So he learns 'detachment' and ends up giving up his dreams !!!

When will these ppl realise before the age of 60 , it is not peace that humans want. We need the dreams to drive us.

We need greed to make us wake up in the morning with a purpose.
We need someone's love to give a meaning to our achievements.
and all the complications love brings - they make life less boring!

Our own problems, irritations and challenges that don't let us sleep - these define us.
It is wat makes us human! In fact, the choice we make about this whole 'peace' thing - its like choosing your dress.

Just answer this- Will you ever burn your itchy armani suit, and change permanently to a very comfortable khaki uniform??

So come, lets go play Mortal Kombat with life!!!! :)

Want an oscar???

I watched this ARR interview, and a woman was interviewing him at his home

I guess most awards have a human shape... Because when took her into a large room ,there on a shelf was an ARMY !! He opened a suitcase and the Golden globes were there wrapped in a towel-like thin cloth!!!
She was like 'Oh wow!' and she asked which awards they were and all that... and then Rahman was looking at that shelf and replying an all..

After which he slowly said, "Few filmfares seem to be missing... and a couple of national awards..." :) :) :) :)

How do you lose a national award!???????
Thats exactly what that interviewer asked. He said something that I' ve always said after losing notebooks while in primary-school!:)
"(shrug) um, we shifted our home!"

If you hear that Rahman's shifting again go hang around when they are moving. Who knows, you might end up owning an oscar or two......
