My Favouite Thathuvam

வாழ்க்கையே போர்க்களம்
வாழ்ந்துதான் பார்க்கனும்

போர்க்களம் மாறலாம்
போர்கள்தான் மாறுமா

My Favouite Thathuvam from cine songs...

I used to keep on saying these lines when i was in school. But it seems that lot of bad things happened in my family all of sudden, after that whenever i say this, my aunt became very angry with me...

"Ippadi solratha mudhala niruthu...ellam nalla padiya nadakum"..

I have stopped saying these lines in my house. But somehow i feel these lines tells the exact nature of life...

I can say it was Vairamuthu's way of saying "Survival of the fittest"

Mythreyi Mangal

Though I have a dozen of brothers and couple of sisters, my sister Narmadha stands out of them. She somehow resembles me, at least in terms of studiousness.

Whenever I go to her place, she is definitely with a book. Till now I have not seen her without her books. And she loves to study in a place which is more chaotic (One of the biggest resemblance with me).

I was a proud person of my family circle because I hold the record for the highest 10, +2 marks and now into a very good position by joining TCS. And now all these are history.

She had beaten my 10th and +2 marks by a massive margin. She joined the premier Anna University (which I was not able to achieve) and now got a scholarship from the Hinduja group (which is also I was not able to).

At the end of engineering, she will definitely be gold medalist from Anna University and end up in a big company with a huge salary.

What I personally feel, she should get into IIM for MBA, which was also my dream.

I have started calling her Padips, which makes her angry.

Anna, enna padipsnu sollatheenga..Athuvum adhai neenga solla koodathu.

May god be with her in all her future endeavours..

Is it so

யாக்கை திரி
காதல் சுடர்

ஜீவன் நதி
காதல் கடல்

பிறவி பிழை
காதல் திருத்தம்

இருதயம் கல்
காதல் சிற்பம்

ஏதேதோ எண்ணங்கள் வந்து எனக்குள் தூக்கம் போனதே

My favourite song - today is ஏதேதோ எண்ணங்கள் from Pattiyal.

Though i religiously hate Yuvan singing songs in this movies, there are few songs which perfectly suits his voice.
The latest one is this. My previous favourite is Eno Kangal from Kalvanin Kadhali.

Now a days he has started singing 3 out of 5 songs in his compositions. Even in அழகாய் இருக்கிறாய் பயமாய் இருக்கிறது, he has given voice to 4 out of 5 songs. I think someone is wrongly advicing him about his voice.

But this song from pattiyal exactly suits his voice. The way it is picturised, the lyrics by Pa.Vijay, everything adds to the beauty of the song.

Just listen once....U will never change to other track for a while...

இன்றைய தத்துவம்

வெற்றி பெறுவோம் என்ற நம்பிக்கையில் தான்
எல்லா போர்களும் தொடங்கபடுகின்றன.

Seriousஆ ஒரு Serial ஆராய்ச்சி

ஆண் என்பதும் பெண் என்பதும்
ஆண்டவன் கோலங்களே

இன்பங்களும் துன்பங்களும்
அவன் வைத்த வண்ணங்களே

Though i am a religious hater of tamil TV Serials, i am great lover of the title songs of the serials. Some of the serials have excellent songs (Dont forget: Lyrics attracts me more that music).

I think the trend was started by Chitti (Kannin mani) and Krishnadasi (Sigaram Parthai). My personal favorite is krishnadasi where Imman has done a wonderful piece of music. He was not into films at that time.

But i remember even before these trends, the songs of K.B are exceptionally good. Remember the

கையளவு கையளவு மனசு
அதில் கடலளவு கடலளவு கனவு

and the Kadhal pagadai songs. And the serials of AVM, where vairmuthu is default lyric writer, SPB is singer and chandrabose is the music director (Nimmadhi Nimmadhi Ungal Choice).

Even when Vikatan started producing serials, Yuvan was the standard music director. At that Yuvan was not famous. The songs which he composed for those serials will actually tell the reason for his fame now. He showed lot of potential at that time itself.

One Pei serial song,

வா வா இதயத்திலே
ஏதோ உருவத்திலே

is still my fav song among serial.

எப்படிடா பரணீ, உன்னால மட்டும் :-)

Heard about Yugabharathi?
He is one of my favorite my time poet. His modern poems are quite fresh to read and the way he handles chosen topic is really good.

I remember a poem where he compares his poem writing skills with his father's "vetrilai" chewing skills. The entire poem goes that his poem writing skills are more superior to his father's chewing skills.

But the poem ends like this
எப்பொழுது போட்டாலும்
ஒரேமாதிரி சிவக்கிறது அவர் நாக்கு
ஒருதடவை கூட முழுதாக
முடிந்ததில்லை என் கவிதை

You might recognize him if I mention some of his movie songs. I think he started with Palaang guzhiyin from Anandham.

He has written only few of them..all are equally good and fresh...and my favorite is Kana kandenadi from Parthiban kanavu. His recent is the "Dhavani pota" is a chartbuster.

But I am not able to read him poems after he moved to film industry..It is the fate of film industry that it takes the best person into it and slowly makes them to forget the best of them...

I hope it should not happen to Yuga.
Way to go man.

Random Thoughts

I was reading a crime novel by Rajeshkumar. There are some random thoughts (Thathuvams) sprinkled at the start of each section.

These 2 are the ones which made me think for a longer time.

கேட்டதையெல்லாம் நம்பாதே
நம்பியதையெல்லாம் சொல்லாதே

கடவுள் பாவிகளை மன்னித்துவிடுகிறார்.
சொர்க்கம் காலியாக இருக்கும்.

One more to the list

Apart from the opposite sex attracts law, my turn on is the "Intelligence of a girl".
Somehow I admire girls who bubbles with intelligence and enthusiasm. There is a long list of intelligent girls who i admire and the latest one is here.

I was watching "Arattai Arangam" in SUN TV, yesterday. There is a girl "Uma Maheswari", talked about how women themselves are responsible for the failure of women.

I have seen many girls who always have this foul cry of "only men" are responsible for all the illness of women. I hate when i hear and avoid reading these kinds of stuff.

But it was a pleasant surprise that she has taken a different route and spoken very spontaneously. They way she had designed her speech, the points she took to prove the idea, the way she counter attacked is really nice experience to watch.

Somehow I was attracted by her (Add one more to the list mamu....).

And one point which is the highlight of her entire speech is this

அனாதைகள் எல்லாம் ஆண்டவனின் குழந்தைகள் என்றால்
அந்த ஆண்டவனுக்கும் கட்டாயம் தேவை குடும்ப கட்டுப்பாடு

Bharathi, நீ கணவு கண்ட பெண்கள் இதோ இங்கே நம் தமிழ்நாட்டில்

மெல்ல தமிழ் இனி வாழும்

Today I was taken back by surprise by this incident.

I called TATA Indicom Customer care to enquire about Walky Life Prepaid connection. I am doing the same for couple of days to get it installed as soon as possible.

But when I called today, I heard a voice

வணக்கம் நான் மஞ்சுளா பேசுகிறேன்.
நான் தங்களுக்கு எவ்வாறு உதவ முடியும்.

Though she was not able to continue with the same fluency in Tamil, the effort is 1000 times appreciable.

Bharathi, மெல்ல தமிழ் இனி வாழும்

டாவுகட்டி தோத்து போனவனெல்லாம்
