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
