Vinnaithandi Varuvaya

Uyire unnai unnai yendhan,
Vaazhkai thunayaaga,
Yerkindren yerkindren..
Inimel puyal, veyil, mazhai,
Paalai, solai ivai,
Ondraaga kadappomey..

I have listen to this lovely song from Tami movie, Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa meaning Will you Cross the Skies for Me?, at least one thousand times composed by the music lord himself. If you've not listened, please do. ;)


Similar song, Manasa malli malli choosa, from Telugu movie  Ye Maaya Chesave.


I am sure you would beat my record after listening to these wonderful songs. :D

Staying calm without listening, mudiyaathe mudiyaathe. ;)

Caricaturist in mE

Sandur: April 1999

The summer of 1999 was a get together with cousins of my age. I had spent a fortnight at my uncle's house who was a doctor. My cousins, K~ and S~ excelled in paintings. The duo whould spend hours together projecting the best talent using brushes, canvas and fevicryl. And I would sit watching them even without a blink with my chin on my palm. :)

"Why don't you try this?" K~ suggested.
"No. I am not good at all these like you both," I replied.
"Unless you try, how can you say you are not good at it", S~ motivated.
"I can draw only an AMOEBA," holding a brush and dipping it in one the colors.

Here is what I did after I returned from summer vacation. It has been more than a decade and I smile when I look at these caricatures I made. The pages have turned "yellow". I have to preserve them!

My farmland

I began sowing on a tiny piece of land which I never dreamed of.

I bought the seeds which grew fast, in a day or two and sowed them.

I planted Trees which bore fruits. 

I even started the Chicken Farm and the Cow shed.

To make my task easier I invested on the Tractors for seeding, ploughing and harvesting made my work easier.

After which I seeded Grapes and my neighbours would add fertilizer to  the crop.


Pine apples

Red hot chillies ;)

I wish I own a farm someday. :D
