Thursday - Why I'm in a GRR mood

1. I don't know

2. I really don't know

3. I really really don't know

4. Maybe because someone reminded me of someone

5. Maybe because I don't want to go to office on Saturday

6. Maybe because I misssssssss so many people!!

7. Maybe this is just PMS!

Wednesday- Thrusting thoughts

You feel strongly about something. You want to express it all out. But if you express it openly, you'll probably be jailed. So what do you do? Insert all your peelings subtly inside the serial that you are directing, and amidst the usual heroine-villain-revenge-anger-sogam scenes, create a character to exhibit all your peelings. BAD IDEA!

I understand it is difficult when you're feeling really sorry for your brotherhood in the neighbourhood and you are anxious that you are not able to do something about it. But, do you really think passing on the message in a primetime soap that has been running on for over SIX frigging years is going to actually help spreading the message? Isn't that degrading your belief? Is this an issue someone would want to discuss during a SOAP?!?! Are you trying to turn the issue into something that nobody would take seriously?! Or is this the way of showing your solidarity?!

PS: If you can't understand head or tail of what I'm talking about, you should check this link:

Tuesday- Nandy's cooking

Aah... This is something I definitely have to recommend. The potato curry Ms. Ezhil Nandhini makes is the best!! (And I've eaten my mum's, Bhuvana's mum's and so many professional cook mamis cooking!!) You have to eat it to believe it. Trust me!!

Also, I think, இவ்வளவு அழகா யாரும் சமையல் பண்ண முடியாது... The way she sings and cooks(almost half-bachelor style), and makes sure she finds company to sit with her in the moda while cooking(நான் என்ன உங்க வேலைக்காரியா?), and the final product itself... wah! eet ees an experience. You have to try it some day!!!

Sunday - Helicopters, CAP(?!) and Corruption

Three things caught my eye in the news this week.

One of course being CM YSR Reddy missing and found dead. Tragic story. But now the rat race for the next CM is going to make people forget to mourn for him and move on to watch the proceedings as usual.

Anna University, Coimbatore Vice chancellor got arrested. This created quite a ruffle in office, because it was a bittersweet news for us. But, yeah... when someone at the top of an university is corrupt, it questions the fundamentals of our education system. If the vice chancellor has no morals, what are we going to teach the students?!

YAP and GAP (Yamuna Action Plan and Ganga Action Plan) were total failures despite shedding over 1000 crores. They failed because we modelled it with the Thames system. Now , YET another attempt to clear up the Cooum. (Maybe they're calling it CAP?!) Yet again, modelled on foreign river systems at the cost of over 99 crores. Well, let us be optimistic and hope my grandchildren will go boating in Cooum....
