Did anyone catch me on TV???

10th Dec 2008
Me, Kutty, Nags, VuiVui and bunk decided to meet up at Spencers after days of slumber during the holidays. Movie buffs were in majority and the meet up ended with Jason Stathom's Transporter-3 at Sathyam Cinemas. While We were waiting for the 4pm show, a group of Neo Sports journalists approached us for their promos about chennai test .

Q1: About the situation , security concerns and spirit of cricket after 26/11 Mumbai attacks??
A cliched response with passion for cricket , best spirits, to show solidarity for Indians

Q2: Yuvraj in for vacant ganguly spot?? with Badri, vijay in squad???
Yuvraj is the man in form with plethora of talent to replace ganguly's spot in test team. Vui vui exaggerating " he'll be chucked out of the team if he's not performing. He's got enough opportunities."

Q3: who's gonna win the chennai test ??
Obvious India given a quality test team and recent success against Aussies, with 5-0 England ODI series clean sweep.

Note : Q3 didn't happen ( ohh.. my god). yes. Satyam officials interrupted our interview stating it shudn't be carried out inside their premises. As our show time was nearing we cudn't complete our interview, which would have been edited :P

14th Dec 2008
England were comfortably placed to win the match. I Gifted my tickets as a compliment to a friend. But Sehwag scripted the match's proceedings.

15th Dec 2008
Best ever test match is taking place in my city, why am i at home. .suit up!! Got the tickets to watch thalaivar bat. Wat an innings , his humble, experienced, responsible Sachin ( GOD) Tendulkar. Whether its guiding Yuvi( provoked by Flintoff), or dedicating to victims of Mumbai blasts.

No wonder he's the best sportsman of the country !!! A gr8 Human :-)

Probably people would have seen me on this day, with aquafina bottles as drums and handkerchiefs as headbands. wow, electrifying atmosphere.. :-)

Responsible leaders !

When the citizens have lost hope on politicians, the CM and the Union Home Minsiter resign. The state remained leaderless for 48 hours when it was most needed. Politicians preferred the play the T-20 blame game of seniority, caste over security n safety.

After P.Chidambaram(P.C) took over Home ministry, immediately started working. On the first day itself , there was a peace deal between the estranged Karunanidhi - Maran families. Guess PC adds another dimension to Home Ministry. who's next Ambanis, Birlas get ready!!!

PS: even after new CM Chavan is elected , Rane won't be a silent spectator..

Eating vs Peeing : which's the best

Well the title can be used by solomon paapaiya for his next paatimandram on sun tv for diwali :P

This incident happened when i was returning from the ims Simcat exam from trichy to college. I was at the CBS ( central bus Stand ) to board the bus . I had dropped in at the Public pay and use toilet at CBS to pee. Generally these Pay n use toilets are supposed to be clean, but never ever u can see a clean public toilet. Come on dis is India man...

I'd to pay to Rs.2 to use the toilet. Its when i was peeing, i realised the stack of waivers given by the Tamil Nadu CM karuna . It's is usual phenomena to give waivers to divert people's attention from the problems ( like the current power shedding) .

The Best part of my realization was... The 1kg of rice for Re.1 at the ration shops waiver which had a nice response from the people. To pee in a public is Rs.2 , but to get 1kg of Rice the Ration Shops is Re.1 . Its gud that govt knows the value of eating ahead of peeing. but still idhu konjam overa than irukku ( heights )!!!!!!!

Raman Thediya Seethai

I’m a big well wisher of Tamil cinema, strongly believing in good movies with novelle ideas. Be it a thriller or action movies like Goutam’s Kaakha Kaakha or like silent stunner Mozhi of Radha Mohan. When Stylish, innovative thrillers with hollywood kinda narratives being made, the big corporates like Moserbaer, UTV, Pyramid Saimira should also encourage quality movies. It’s those Cherans, Ameers, Balas , Thankar Bachans who continue to keep the audience spell bound with their clean n down to earth stories.

I’ve always like cheran’s movies, be it thaavamai thavamiruthu ( I remember many of the older generation heaping laurels on this movie) , Simple concept of respecting ypur elders and forgiveness of younger generation by older ones was the story. These movies are slow, at some point’s stationary, but they are so natural as though it happens in your neighbourhood.

Cheran’s Raman Thediya Seethai. As it says the protagonist searching for his better half is the crux of the story. After being psychologically affected in his childhood, despite getting state 2nd in class 10th examination, the no. of rejected proposals make his life bitterer. The belief and the perseverance of the protagonist is the story. Pasupathi as a Blind RJ was fantafabulous. He shares his motivation with cheran over a coffee session and influences him greatly. His good hearted helping nature and subtle performance by cheran stands out and evokes sympathy from me. He even helps the girl, who eloped with her boy friend on eve of her marriage with cheran. The screenplay is as though it’s the story of someone in my neighborhood.

Kudos to these Tamil cinema makers who make realistic films inviting family audience to movies, even when tamil cinema is making Hollywood style fast paced thrillers

Gr8 Indian definition

For any person who studied civics in school will remember dis definition...
" India is a sovereign, socialistic , secular, democratic republic "

For those who r still skeptical about it, check up google search or wikipedia :P

1. Sovereign - " The right to control the government, the people, country "
politicians realize that people exist only when elections are approaching. Parties protest for so called anti people policies, even when people favour them.

2.Socialistic - "creation egalitarian society, in wealth n power equally distributed"
The rich get richer and poor get poorer. Everyone is concerned whether Ambanis will top the forbes list, none is concerned about the people below poverty line.

3.Secular - " government and other decisions free from political influence "
Secularism.. the dangerous one.. the parties and ideologies are respected. India is a country with religious political parties who can demolish mosques, kill innocent minority people for revenge, rape people for religion .

4. Democracy -" the government elected by the people "
Any one can talk anything in this country, be it Raj Thackery or Dr. Ramadoss, no one cares. Each caste can have a political party who dig up roads, cricket grounds,burn public transport, involve in bandhs for their political ambitions.

All the italized definitions find place only in civis textbooks

P.S: thank Godse.. mahatma gandhi would have literally cried with this India.. Another gandhian movement required to cleanse the country

scene :: when some 5 people were bored of boredom and so vetti , decided to discuss abt the most beautiful girl in the coll(very difficult to find one in NITT ).

the situation started as usual with a scapegoat, one pullapoochi. The sincere-me decided to study for placements, otherwise no scope of getting placed in a company.Quietly, I vacated my seat , when i caught the group's attention. I told them i've some work, so i'm leaving.X told, " we won't link u with dat gal da, so don't worry". Still i remained firm on my stance to leave. Suddenly Y told, " macha, don't force him da, he'll get tensed and shout da. Let him go". I felt like i'd gotta tight slap across my face (like in balachandar's movies). I realised my friends have always thought me as a dormant volcano which could burst out any time. My short temper has earned me such a bad image among my friends. Mom's words on anger pinged my brain. ( one of the realizations of my life. For me anger is insignificant, Just that i've expressed my dislikeness then and there.

All those incidents which aroused anger so far in my life need to be addressed in a more soft manner. All those problems in class caused faculty or the studious gals, or fellow players in a cricket match who reprimand me for bowling a bad delivery , or when smirking about a false relationship or those people who think they are smart n avoid lines in hostels, mess .. Come what ever, here after , " I DON'T GIVE A DAMN!!!!!"

Lefts are never right!!!!

This article discusses the blunders of left parties in India. They claim, they talk for the middle class. But the middle class is not interested in them. By withdrawing support, their stature as a people's party has diminished. :-)

Appreciate the Hardwork

First, this post is not a review of Dasavatharam, U would have read many blogs posted on that topic. I personally felt, they are certain things more than cliche reviews. I always reiterate my stand of being a lover of good cinema, not inclined towards any stars or have their fan following.

If people cannot appreciate the nuances of dasavatharam, then they are being hypocritical. Stating " after all the hype abt make-up, it turned out to be a buzzavatar" These people need to know we are making Indian films , for Indian people. Please don't compare it with an hollywood movie. As Yuhi Sethu, actor-writer exclaims, " Americans are just 200 years old, but we need to make movies for 2000 years old tamil audience with the tamil traditions and culture in mind. Oscars are awards given to Americans/British for their movies, Our movies need not be recognised by the Oscar Academy". There are other pool of stars and superstar to give a full fledged entertainers. We don't expect that from a kamal movie. Something extraordinary is what kamal gives.

Morethan the entertainment, the audience needs to be prepared for this movie. K.S. RaviKumar in his interview ," even the illiterate can understand the movie". He completely overrules the belief in hypocrites about the complex nature of story.For a layman on the street, " Some virus inside a box , if dispersed can spread exponentially and kill humanity. A scientist who invented it tries to prevent it from happening .A villain tries to get that box because of his inhumane money-minded nature. finally tsunami comes from saves mankind from a catastrophy" as simple as it can get. you don't understand the english part to know this story. All the complexity about the chaos theory, butterfly effect, biowarfare is for the literate to do a wikipedia referral.

Things that amazed me. The very range of the story from 12th century and present age tells u abt the research n background work to write such a script. The perserverance and determination in transforming what he has scripted.The Journey of thousand miles begins in a footstep. Dasavatharam character have a close resemblance to Lord Vishnu's Dasavathar, their character , appearance, body language. No special comedy tracks, no duets with heroines,no intro songs, movies breaks the conventional cinema. Climax states, even the deadly tsunamis happen for the sake of good. Everything happens for a reason, be optimistic and search for the good.

The movie makes audience prepare themselves for the movie rather than other way. This will be a new trend to tamil cinema, Movie takes tamil cinema to a different platform. Hats off to Ashtadhavani Kamal, Master director KSR . Dasa is a feather in ever growing tamil cinema.

PS: all these comments were personal statements and didn't meant to insult other stars or their fans.

CSK with chennai tamizh

IPL has married cricket and entertainment . It was an immense success, a good timepass for people especially for children during their summer vacations. Different players play for different teams despite their ethnic differences. This includes the foreign players too. The players were embraced with open hands by the supporters of the teams. I thought to associate players with colloquial names , so that there's a sense of belonging for the players. So here comes the list for my favourite team CSK-Chennai Super Kings

1. Annathe fleming -> Stephen Fleming

2. Paalpaapa parthiv -> parthiv patel
(aka pulla poochi , iskool payyan)
3. Rousu Raina -> Suresh Raina

4. Daaaarr Dhoni -> M.S Dhoni (c& wk)
(aka Thalaa , saraveddi-fire cracker)
5. Blaade Badri -> S.Badrinath

6. Jaaga jogi -> Joginder sharma

7. Nochikuppam Ntini -> Makhaya Ntini

8. Guduvanchery Goni -> Manpreet Goni

9. All-in-all Azhagu raja Albie -> Albie Morkel

10. Machan Murali -> Muttiah Muralidharan

11. Bigile balaji -> Lakshmipathy Balaji

12.Allva Amarnath-> Palani Amarnath

13. Vetti vidyut -> Vidyut Sivaramakrishnan

PS: if u couldn't follow any of these words, check out

Go Gill Go

Generally this caption will be used for people to achieve something extraordinary .Like while in a cricket match, when Dhoni goes for the kill, a caption said " Go Dhoni Go". But this post has nothing to do with that.

When i caught the glimpse of the news when i was refreshing, i was elated and filled with ebulience. KPS Gill , retired Police Officer from Punjab , The President of Indian Hockey Federation is sacked. The Indian Olympic Association has dissolved the IHF and has appointed a 5 adhoc member committee in its place. Gill known for his bullheaded nature, had never ever thought about resigning from the top post , which has held for the past 15 years.

The Hockey, Indian National Sport was in a poor state of affairs in his tenure, that lead to many failures at the international arena. No proper infrastructure in the country was developed, no school or college level programs were organised. Indian Hockey stagnated, that's when other sports like cricket bossed over hockey. More than 15 coaches were sacked in his term. Many talented players like Gagan Ajt singh, Jugraj Singh, Baljit Singh Dhillon were sidelined from the national squads. Many former players including Dhanraj Pillay, Viren Resquinha raising their voices vehemently against Gill administration. Even Many protests Mr.Gill was unperturbed.India even failed to qualify for olympics this year, which added fuel to this growing anger against Mr.Gill. Mr. Jyothikumaran, Secretary, IHF, right hand of Mr.Gill, was caught on camera for accepting money to select a player into the national squad.

IOA had thought, "Enough is Enough.. Somebody's gonna do something to teach this old jackass".
Lets hope the hockey dismal state improves in this country, what else can we do.. just hope :-)

sems over

yipeee.. exams over today. My examophobia has ended. I never know who founded this way of having exams to grade students.
This doesn't end here for me, the search continues
Moreover my product design needs to be completed by may 7th..
@least hope so.. :)

product (well) designed

Product Design & Development is an offbeat course, undergone by all students in ICE department. My product is AQUAMON , a swimming pool monitoring system. It uses a color sensor . I had to fabricate a pcb with that sensor.

With the available contacts, i had to go to VI microsystems,perungudi to fabricate this IC. Where on earth is Perungudi?? Its a small place in south chennai. For the first time i realised, chennai is bigger than i expected. Its no more chennai, Greater Chennai. I was redirected to some other company by VI. The inner roads were equally bad. Finally i saw a board stating, end of perungudi municipality. I remembered sivajis' dialogue in parashakthi, " odinen.. odinen.. perungudiyin ellaivarai odinen.. angae road illathathal, thirumbi vanthuvittaen.."( i ran until perungudi's municipal limit, but i retreated, as there was n oroad)

I explained everything to that company and got my IC fabricated, immediately started for trichy that night. 1st day in trichy, 2nd at perungudi-chennai, 3rd day in trichy.
All these was done,ultimately to find that my IC was not working :-:::: .
Now i feel normal exams are much better than this course. It deserves more than 4 credits. Atleast we work more than 4 credits ..

Nittfest-08.. infested by ece..

One of the most awaited events of Nit-Trichy, The inter dept cult fest, NITTFEST. This year my bench mate, Arun Balaji, was the event chairman. But still I maintained my stand of not working for Nittfest. I prefer participating in the cult events. Of course, I like dancing n participating in English litz events. I didn’t want my dept to loose bcos of me (even otherwise they’ll lose.). So no other go, Tamil litz is the only hope.

The event Nittfest is turning out more like an ECEfest, so no use in other dept people competing with them. Imagine the plight of metallurgy dept (no offences) with a class strength around 30, competing with the mighty ECEs of 80 in number. There’s a talk that the strength might rise to 120 next academic year. I agree with the director’s point, that there’s no need to have a Nittfest, if this situation continues. There were times in this Nittfest’08, where the audience knew the results before they were announced. “Obviously, ECE first da, whatever they do…”. Almost every other dept students uttered these words. EEE movie spoof was much better than ECE or any other department.

So what plans for next nittfest?? May be we can have ECE vs. all other 10 departments. While the ECE’s can have their Veni...vidi...vici, all the other department can have a t-shirt mocking at the ECEs. The best part was the dedication of the Mech Machos to ECE paddips, “naanda vanathil oru aandi...” song from Oram Po, (if u have not heard, pls do hear dat one!!!!)

This year edition was a bit fruitful as I qualified for most of the prelims, but lost out in the finals. The best part was the movie spoof. My department played “imsai Arasan...Elikaesi...”. with Rivat Haans, ARS playing the lead role, me as his minister with Koundamani character. Another guy, Adarsh as another minister imitating Lollu Sabha Manohar. Wow... adarsh is the exact replacement for ARS when he passes out. The worst thing ever could happen was that we had our first rehearsal on the stage in front of the audience. Fulltime Comedy.

Overall it was a nice time, fun filled, with department senti as always like anyother edition of Nittfest!!!!

be fooled with april1

come April..first thing that gets onto our mind is April 1st.. (fools day).The fun of fooling others n gaining superiority by not becoming a fool. But why April 1st..It seems France had the tradition of dis fool's day,Britain as usual just copied n made it official..soon other countries followed(of course ..some grnd work before dis post :D)
at least after reading this post.. pls try to think independently n fool others.. come up with some new ideas.. never steal friends' ideas :P
if u don't know :::
->The birthdays of Fred and George from the Harry Potter series is April 1st.
->The 1986 horror film April Fool's Day is themed around the holiday.
->April fool is a key code of an American spy who led to the downfall of saddam hossain.

even my friend shares a birthday with april1(not necessarily he's a fool..)

PS: even as i write dis blog.. flashnews on cnn-ibn..
a small tussle between the shivsainiks and the students council of some college in mumbai..
cases of stone pelting were reported.Its reported that Bal thakearey was called fooled by some students, which resulted into this clash.

avec un software enggineer.

One day, a Mechanical Engineer, an Electrical Engineer, a Chemical Engineer
and a Software Engineer were driving down the street in the same car.
The car broke down.
The Mechanical Engineer said, "I think a rod broke. We can check the rods."
The Chemical Engineer said, "The way it sputtered at the end, I don't think it's getting gas. We shall check the gas tank."
The Electrical Engineer said, "I think there was a spark and something is wrong with the electrical system. We shall check the circuitry."
All three turned to the Software engineer and said,
"What do you think?"
The Software Engineer said, "We shall get out of the car and get in Again."

PS: 1.probably he;s using windows system..or no kill command in car process list :P
2.obviously lifted from mail forwards

According to me, the most awaited moment of the year was Pragyan so far(not even Sensors, though I’m VC for it).So far I’ve seen three Pragyans, but this one was very special b'cos of the trust imposed on us by the Jk(jai kishen, the Overall coordinator, Pragyan).Me n ppl have always stuck to jk's words . The respect he has earned amongst us, his commitment towards his work makes him an inspiration to his juniors. The entire framework was drafted & committees were put up, with me in Venue Management, Organization. Though my team had three coords. Hari was busy with stalls & printing, Visshnu maams taking up photography manager post, I was the lone coordinator under Arun ,the manager of the team.

Speaking of Pragyan’08, there was array of events including astavigyan, Nitro, Foxhunt, Contraption, micro mouse, biz quiz ,circuitry, Anvesham, Ventura, byte code, Sanrachana, Dexter’s lab, many more. 10 new events were introduced in this year’s edition. The guest lectures by eminent personalities like GK, Subramanian Swami, Noam Chomsky, Trilochan Sastry n others illuminated us. The infotainment by Tony nash(I guess.. I’m rite..) Took us to a world of virtual reality n 3D. Though I was in organization, I participated in circuitry biz quiz.. Both flopped. The GL by Dr. Swami was the best, giving us the economical perspective. Unfortunately I didn’t even have an opportunity to attend Pengufest workshop, conducted by our pengu man, ‘silver prince’ suren. :P

My organizational skills has grew along with the pragyan. I headed a bunch of enthusiastic, understanding, energetic, comical juniors. Frankly speaking, I’m skeptical whether I would find such a team in the future. On my single SMS , they would be at my service. This Pragyan was a big mountain built using pack of cards meticulously, I’m happy that I was the footsteps of that event being a card at its basement. May the next team learn the shortcomings of this event, overcome it successfully.

As the logo of Pragyan says, “ Lets Celebrate Technology” , I celebrated this pragyan thoroughly and learnt new things. :-) pragyan go.. :-)

the colloquial chennai senthamizh. :)

Travel by any auto in chennai,u'll find them use "Vootle solltiya? Saavugraaki!". Or the common lingo of college people, " Figura paathu frienda cut panradhu ". From Laadu labbaku dhas' petr to saroja saaman nikalo ,the lingo is quite unique .

Madras baashai is a mixture of tamil,telugu(gu-lu-te), english(peterr) , malayalam( figures). Its quite difficult to understand for the strangers, but its really close to oneself when it comes to speaking. Not surprisingly it had its say in Kollywood movies, especially with double meanings.

For high range peter guys, the chennai tamil speakers might seem to be a locals( porikkis) but these people are really kind hearted, i'm sure u don't need to be in suit n coat to be kind hearted. But in a problem, Daar than..Dharma adi.. No Jagaa vaangaradhu. U learn quite a lot of these during ur gully cricket childhood days, especially area matches. Not to forget the local kaalachifying & lollu of the natives. With modernisation, even girls 4m Aminjikarai speak as though they are from America. Pull anyone's socks in chennai, u'll find a dictionary of bad words as in other languages.

If ur those people who have stayed in chennai for more than three years and still not got an opportunity to have a grip over this lingo, u can checkup,

Moral of the story.. Bazarlai ushara illaina nijara kalatidu vaanga . hehe .. :P
Chennai is never complete without its madras tamil..A small tribute to chennai tamil.. :D

2008 beckons me ..

A really crucial year for me , especially from my career perspective...most decisive moments.Where am i headed next after college.
1.Is it gonna MBA thru CAT??
2.IS it MS thru GRE?? if so which area of specialisation...
3.Then the placement opporunities?? Tech or softy job..
Three unanswered questions of my life... i hope to answer them by next year.

->My cpc exams starting next week make me devoid of my time. I need to squeeze time for my CAT and GRE preparation.
->Also my wish to play topcoder regularly and get out of this grey color.
->Study well , to improve my CGPA to boost my career interests. :(
->The Sensors Symposium should not give me any problems. I guess it should help me in understanding people better and give the real picture about myself to others.
->More importantly to get a good summer project to aide my MS chances.
->Apart from these , my usuals like hockey,volleyball,movies,writing,cricket,counter strike,FIFA'08,read more books.
->My mess food should be eatable.

I pray to god to give me good health(depsite my injury woes..), in achieving my desires.finally

Be good , do good , keep others happy.. :-)
Happy New year :-)
