Education is the only asset, whenever it is given to others its net value just keeps on increasing day by day. Education is the key to personal, mental and financial forms of higher development. But why do people spend endless years in school to be rich? Or to be comfortable? To afford nice things or to have Dr. or Esq. at the end or beginning of their names? To spend 11 hours in an office or 12 hours in a hospital to become rich and not even wealthy. To take out thousands of rupees in student loans only to end up using your degree to pay it back. Over the years there has been quite a shift in the perception of education.

When has education become a means of trying to get rich. Society, media and family members tell us that if we want to be well off, we need to get an education. If we want to be rich or comfortable, we need an education. There are thousands of ways to get rich and even wealthy without making 12 hour rounds in a hospital or 10 hour days writing briefs. Do not get me misunderstood, education is a better alternative than other choices in a means to become rich, but that is not its sole purpose.

Education is not a means to make money; as a matter of fact it is the end result. Educational institutions are money making machines. They too involve themselves in effective public relations, advertising and "BRANDING." Just like how women rather have Gucci over Kenneth Cole, some rather have Princeton over Rutgers. The point that I am trying to make is that the more people equate education with making money the more we loose sight of its real meaning

Education is supposed to give you the tools, skills and knowledge to be an effective citizen. To use your degree as a means to change the world. To fore go the ego boosters that comes with your suffixes (which is different than being proud of yourself). To use your degree and professional position to benefit something higher than yourself while still making money.

We need to re-evaluate our position as students and hope that the only thing we do not graduate with is loans and a new job. Some might be quite satisfied and content with that. But we need more students who graduate as better human beings, knowing the depths of their determination and hard work and turning that into creative innovations and ideas ways that will yield wealth while making a difference and if this is done...the price of education is well worth it.

Be a good friend of yourself

First thing which everyone must know is to be a good friend of ourself.Most people desire good company. They desire friends, people in whom they can trust and share commonalities with. Many of us are blessed to have great support networks as well as good friends, a blessing indeed. But, many of us have had our share of good and bad apples that fell from the tree. We've spent months, years and maybe seasons sharing our lives with people. The most important thing I learned through all of my experiences is that, everything happens for a reason.

People come into your lives for many reasons. Some to help you, others to learn from you, some to hold you back and others to push you forward. One must recognize that not all friends serve the same purpose. Some are just there to go to events with, some are there to study with, others are there to pray with and really talk about serious issues with, some are there to gossip, or go shopping with and some are there to build futures with. This is life, we cannot expect everyone to meet us at all the points of our needs.

One important thing I also learned is to be good friends with yourselves. Be the type of friend you dreamed to have. The type of friend that has all the qualities to make it with you to the mountaintops. We as women should not expect others to treat us in ways we cannot treat ourselves and those around us. For me conversing is great, always keeping in contact is a plus and being good to people tops the list. But, I am always selective and aware of those that I keep around me. I welcome all, but some get further than others for different reasons. I have a great support network and have been blessed to experience the good and bad of friendships.

In the end, one must be their own best friend and depend on God to supply you with your own support network and friends. And learn to appreciate those who open their lives and hearts out to you. Remember, while being a good friend to yourself, do not push people away. Remain open and willing to create, mend and build new relationships.

Learn Yourself

One of the best Professors I ever had said to the class, "You are your project, work on you." There are two projects in life that we should pursue or unconsciously are already in pursuit of is the project of constantly investing and improving our selves and the project of building our empires. The project of working on oneself to the point of excellence is a choice that I a faithful advocate of. The project of constant self-improvement and learning who you are as a person can never be a futile pursuit. This is in essence a life-long project but with constant reflection, you will accomplish a lot more in less time.

While we work on ourselves, so that we can continue to become a better person we in turn add to the welfare and up liftment of society while reaching the apex of personal development. These pursuits tend to produce persons who are well-balanced, have an appreciation of all cultures, religions, arts, and personalities, and those who achieve great accomplishments that directly benefit communities.

It would not be a bad idea to view our lives as case studies or research projects. To see what happens if we decide to invest in building intelligence than making money. Or invest in finding ways to be empathetic. And to see how these pursuits can alter your mindset and behavior. I believe its results will be quite interesting and beneficial to all.

Wow lord thank you for the adversity we have.We may not say it when we are going through it but lets thank Him for it. Because it was the presence of adversity that made us wiser, stronger, and more appreciative. The devil thought that if he threw adversity in your way, that it would downsize you and your blessing...but he was wrong. Out of pain, great power is produced. It is out of severe heartache extreme joy is truly experienced.

So, I thank God for every adversity. Didn't Nelson Mandela spend 27 years in jail before becoming the President of South Africa. Wasn't it Oprah Winfrey who was raped and abused before becoming one of the richest and most influential women in the world. Wasn't it Maya Angelou who was molested as child before becoming one of the most praised poets in the world. Wasn't is Elie Wiesel who went through the horrors of the Holocaust before winning the Nobel Peace Prize for his powerful literature. So you see, out of the depths of pain, heartache and failure God will use you and uplift you.

It is your story that will reach millions of people. Every successful person has a great story to tell. The experiences that you have went through had to come to pass in order to get you to your next level. Because you went through pain you will be able to sympathize with others, because you were in debt you will understand how good it feels to be rich, because you were gravely sick in the hospital you now appreciate what it means to have good health. So you see, we should thank God for adversity and let the devil know everything bad that has happened in our lives will work out for our own good.

Indian Team for Bangladesh Series

Sachin Tendulkar was rested while pacemen Ishant Sharma and Praveen Kumar were on Friday dropped from India's 16-member squad for next month's Tri-series in Bangladesh.

Temperamental speedster S Sreesanth, who missed the ODI series against Sri Lanka because of swine flu, and Bengal pacer Ashok Dinda were included in the ODI squad for the Tri-series announced by the BCCI Secretary N Srinivasan after a selection committee meeting here.

Ishant, who has been in poor form in recent times, was not only axed from the Tri-series squad but was also not included in the team for the fifth and final ODI against Sri Lanka here on Sunday.

Left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha was also left out of the Tri-series squad with the national selectors preferring leg spinner Amit Mishra to share the spin bowling responsibilities with Harbhajan Singh.

Dashing left-hander Yuvraj Singh, who only played one match in the ODI series against Sri Lanka, has been named in the Tri-series squad which has no new face.

"Sachin Tendulkar desired to be rested for the Tri-series at Bangladesh. He will play the Tests against Bangladesh," Srinivasan said in a BCCI press release issued tonight.

Virender Sehwag, who led India when Mahendra Singh Dhoni was unavailable following the two-match suspension for slow over-rate, has been named vice-captain of the Tri-series squad.

Rohit Sharma, who figured in India's Twenty20 squad, has also been recalled for the Tri-series in Dhaka from January 4-13.

Apart from India, hosts Bangladesh and Sri Lanka are the two other teams.

The Tri-series will be followed by a two-match Test series in Chittagong (Jan 17-21) and Dhaka (Jan 24-28).

The team to be captained by Dhoni has six specialist batsmen, two specialist spinners and five pacemen. It has one all-rounder in Ravindra Jadeja who has been quite effective as left-arm spinner and two wicketkeepers in captain Dhoni and Dinesh Karthik.

In the absence of Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir is likely to open the innings with his Delhi teammate Sehwag while it will be interesting to see who bats at the crucial number three position.

Zaheer Khan will spearhead the pace attack which also has Ashish Nehra and Sreesanth besides the two two rookies Sudip Tyagi and Ashok Dinda.

Squad for the fifth ODI against Sri Lanka:

MS Dhoni (Captain), Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra, Sudeep Tyagi, Dinesh Karthik, S Sreesanth, Ashok Dinda, Pragyan Ojha.

Sqaud for the Tri-series: MS Dhoni (Captain), Virender Sehwag (Vice-Captain), Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra, Yuvraj Singh, Sudeep Tyagi, Dinesh Karthik, S Sreesanth, Ashok Dinda, Amit Mishra.

Ganguly praises cool Gambhir

India's most consistent batsman in recent times, is ex-captain Sourav Ganguly.
Gambhir completed his 3000 runs in One-day cricket on Thursday en route to his unbeaten 150 in the fourth match, which helped India seal the five-match series.

"Gambhir has been improving a lot. Gambhir is a cool headed guy. He has been scoring runs and he is getting them consistently," Ganguly said.
Ganguly is impressed by the temperament of the Delhi dasher.

Watching the India-Sri Lanka day night proceedings with wife Dona and daughter Sana from at Eden Gardens, for Ganguly it was for the first time after his international retirement that India played at his home venue.
Asked whether he missed the on-field action, Ganguly said, "Not at all. I am enjoying my life."
A charismatic leader during his time, Ganguly said his retirement decision was correct as the battle of making a comeback and getting dropped again and again was becoming tough.
"It was getting enough. Making a comeback everytime after getting dropped. How many more times would I have fought to make my way into the side? This battle was getting tough.
"There is a limit to it," he said.
Ganguly also felt that dew played a role in Sri Lanka's defeat, saying," The balls skid as it becomes difficult for bowlers to control the ball. I knew it would be easier to bat second.

India won the ODI series against Srilanka

Centuries from Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli helped India defeat Sri Lanka by seven wickets to take an unassailable 3-1 lead in the five-match series.

Gambhir revealed being dismissed cheaply in the previous matches spurred him on to a good knock in the fourth onedayer against SL.

Gambhir scored an unbeaten 150 as India surpassed Sri Lanka's total of 315 for six with just under two overs to spare.
The left-hander added 224 for the third wicket with Virat Kohli (107), who made his maiden ODI century.
Gambhir was run out cheaply in the second ODI and made 32 in the last match, but was pleased with his effort at Eden Gardens.
"I was pretty unfortunate in the last couple of innings but once I crossed the half-century mark here, I kept telling myself to keep going," he said.
"It was important to win this series and I am happy I played a good knock. It was important to build a partnership because we always knew the dew would be a factor on this ground.

The Lady of night

The wall in a dirty public urinal,
Plaster peeling,
Mouldy green fungus in its damp spots,
A smell of abuse by unknown men
Settling heavy in the puddles of pee around it,
Garbage of the mind strewn across
In crude graffiti and filthy sketches,
That wall is my body,
The body of the lady of the night.

My corpse stalks the night,
Its shadows permit others to believe
My cheeks still are rosy red,
My face yet unlined by a web of lines,
My flesh still firm, my breasts proud.
I dread the day, its bright light
Reveals the crumpled sheeets on my bed,
Across my pillows strange oily strands of hair,
Dark rings under my tired eyes,
The purple patch on my peeled off face,
The face of the lady of the night.

With the soiled notes clutched in my hands,
Forever damp with the sweat of the night,
For my daughter a dawn I try to buy,
Brick by brick,
Thrust by thrust,
Heave by heave,
Grunt by grunt,
While every morning I stand in the shower,
Trying to scrub off the stains on my body,
Till my skin is peeled and the flesh is chafed,
The stains run deeper and I scrub on and on,
Till there is nothing left of me anymore,
Except a bleeding, gaping hole
Streching infinitely between my legs,
This is what I have exchanged for a soul,
The soul of the lady of the night.

some favourite lines from YEATS

O sweet everlasting Voices, be still;
Go to the guards of the heavenly fold
And bid them wander obeying your will,
Flame under flame, till Time be no more;
Have you not heard that our hearts are old,
That you call in birds, in wind on the hill,
In shaken boughs, in tide on the shore?
O sweet everlasting Voices, be still.

A Silent Scream

My dreams are troubled, they yearn for you,
As the misty night silently passes through,
Like a rudderless ship my whispers stray,
And my sighs congeal to form the milky way.

The sickle-thin moon slices in two my heart,
The blood seeps out from my eyes red-cast,
It colours the shadows a deep henna-red,
Flame drowned in tears, my lamp lies dead.

The demon sky with tentacles that float,
Crushes my chest and smothers my throat,
I sit up coughing, my lungs fight for air,
As the dark prepares to take me in its care.

Perhaps my eyes will never see the light,
Perhaps I shall fail to survive this night,
For you remain lost, even to my dream,
And all that remains is my silent scream.

Good Morning

Let me love you for a while says the flower
And brighten up my smile with yours
Today the hen called you, still you sleepy dear
Or are the dreams shutting your eye lid doors?

Let me then wish you awhile says the bird
And assume you are unaware of my wait
You had promised me a kiss as my reward
Or someone's kiss in your dreams makes you late?

Let me cover you from the sun says the tree
Just enough to shade you, not feel its still night
Now even my leaves ape your hair, so curly
And tease a thousand ways to move you upright

The flowers, birds and trees are far and I'm near
And true, you sleep pretty wearing that smile
I can keep watching you like this dear,
But can you give a morning hug for a while?

Think not

Think not your love is perfect, not until it fulfills
It sees sans eyes,
It hears sans ears,
It touches sans touch,
It feels with a heart,
It stands face to face with divine glory and speaks sans tongue,
It obeys no law. When law becomes your innate desire,
Think then your love as perfect

Are you the one i am in love with?

The mystery remains within me
Are you the one i'm in love with?
You make me smile
And the other moment I have tears in my eyes.
One moment u make me feel wanted
And the other moment I feel you to be so indifferent.
This feeling gives me a tang of pain,
Still my feelings for you remain all the same.
Last night I saw a dream
You were there standing with all the gleam
Like a star shining up in the sky
Which can't be reached, no matter how hard I try!
They say Times change, people change
then why do my feelings for you remain the same?
I have seen you change
And this encourages me to change with your change.
Alas, you matter to me all the same.
Missing you is pleasure,
Missing you is pain
But it's the tender feeling for you that helps me sustain.
What is this feeling I don't know
But you are the one who makes me glow.
This relationship we share,
What you want to call it
I don't care.
I don't want to name it
I just know you are among the best things
That ever happened to me.
But tell me something
Are you the one I'm in love with???

Best of 2009 . FEDERER , WILLIAMS

Roger Federer and Serena Williams have been named as the 2009 world champions by the International Tennis Federation.

Federer claims the honour for the fifth time, while Williams wins it for the second.
The award caps a memorable year for Federer, who during it won the French Open and Wimbledon titles - completing a career Grand Slam and surpassing Pete Sampras' record of Grand Slam singles titles in the process.

The Swiss, who was also runner-up at the Australian and US Opens, said: "It is an honour for me to be named ITF world champion for a fifth time.

"It was an incredible year for me both on and off the court. To win my first Roland Garros title, break the all-time Grand Slam record and regain the number one ranking is amazing. It means a lot to me to finish the year again at the top."
Meanwhile, women's world number one Williams adds the title to the one she claimed in 2002.

She won the Australian Open and Wimbledon crowns during the year, as well capturing the season-ending Sony Ericsson Championships in Qatar.
In fact there was double delight for Williams who was also named as world doubles champion, alongside her sister, Venus.

The siblings won three of the four Grand Slam titles in 2009, missing out only at the French Open, taking their career total to 10 Grand Slam doubles triumphs
Serena becomes the first player since Martina Hingis in 1999 to win both the singles and doubles world champion awards.
American twins Bob and Mike Bryan were named men's doubles world champions for a record sixth time, while Swede Daniel Berta and France's Kristina Mladenovic claimed the junior awards.

ITF president Francesco Ricci Bitti said: "This has been another memorable year for tennis, with some outstanding performances by our world champions. Roger Federer has truly earned his place in the history books, while the Williams sisters remain the strongest competitors on the women's tour."
The awards will be handed out at the ITF World Champions Dinner, which takes place in Paris on June 1 during the French Open.

The old lady in the moon

Lying under a million stars,
Feeling small, alone, forlorn,
It was the old lady in the moon
Who winked at me smiling a toothless smile,
And drew me up by the strands
Of stories weaved by her
On her spinning yarn.
Sleeping in her lap I forgot
The frayed collar of my school shirt,
My trousers an inch too short,
And I dreamt,
Of the sparkling strands of stories,
Each coloured with a million hues,
Reflecting moonbeams, entwining, separating,
Coming together at last,
In a sea of stories on the other side of the moon.

Some years intervened, and I understood
Why no one would share his tiffin with me,
Day by day, I had only dry bread to offer after all,
I also realised the wrinkles on the lady's face
Were only craters, and her spinning wheel
Just some hill
On a desolate landscape
Where no sea could ever be,
That was the time I started dreaming
In black and white and shades of gray.

So many years have passed by,
Soon enough there will be wrinkles on my face,
My hair will turn whiter than the old lady's,
And my stories reflect
Jagged shards of broken dreams,
Gray and colourless.
More and more often I wonder
Of the fate of the old lady,
And her sparkling sea of stories.

My eyes will cloud with cataract,
My vision will dim, my world blurred,
Perhaps then I will see again
Dreams in the lap of the old lady,
Who perhaps might still be spinning her web,
There might really be a sea perhaps,
On that face of the moon unseen by men.

kandein kadhalai review

They have met again! The ‘Jab We Met’ remake is in town and love is in the air. Will the magic work? After the critically acclaimed Poo, Moser Baer ventures into commercial cinema successfully with Kanden . With a story that has already proved its worth up north and a universally accepted emotion as its basic theme; the odds are definitely in favor of Kanden kadhalai.

The team behind the remake is relatively young but highly promising. Kannan is trying to follow up his impressive debut (Jeyamkondaan) with a hit, Bharath is returning to the lover boy role after a few commercial trysts and Tamanna gets a gem of an opportunity to prove her worth as an actress who can carry off all kinds of emotions. Put all this together and we get ‘Kanden kadhalai’, a youthful romantic drama which takes a fresh perspective on love and relationships.

Shakthi (Bharath) is down in the dumps! The big business establishment that his father has built is falling apart, the board of directors is going insane with arguments and to top it all there are allegations that his mother is having an affair with the company’s auditor. Not able to take any more of the misery he walks out of the board meeting. The day after he goes missing, everyone wonders where he is gone. In fact, even he has no idea of where he wants to go.

He just wants to escape from everything, even from himself. Without a ticket in hand or a destination in mind he boards a train. Aboard he comes across Anjali (Tamanna) who is poles opposite to him in character. She just can’t stop talking, most of which is about herself. As we discover later, the person she loves most in the world is herself. In a weird twist of events, brought about by Shakthi’s pointless sauntering and Anjali’s insuppressible energy, they find themselves together, stranded in the middle of nowhere with no means of transport for the night. They get to know each other over the period that they are together. Travelling across Tamil Nadu to get to Anjali’s home, Shakthi starts feeling lighter and better. He starts learning a lot about taking it easy. Meanwhile Anjali has plans of her own, love is on her mind. But the man is not Shakthi. However she wants Shakthi’s help to reach her lover. She runs away from home and Shakthi goes back to resurrect his business. Everyone believes that they are together, somewhere. It takes some time for Shakthi to realize that everyone believes in something that is not exactly true. So, he sets out to prove that Anjali has actually found love and life with another person. Does he find her? What is she doing? This time the tables turn. Anjali is somber and Shakthi can’t stop talking. Does love happen?

At the outset, it is important to understand that this film is not only about love or romance. It also shows at places about how life and all its ups and downs have to be dealt with. The story defends love and lovers under all circumstance. Some people might find certain thoughts a bit difficult to agree with, but that doesn’t hinder the film much. The chemistry of the lead pair which is the moving force of the film has worked well. Both Tamanna and Bharath look fresh and different in their roles. Bharath is neat and sophisticated in his role. Tamanna looks good especially in the half saree. As for her performance, she is really good while bringing out different facets of the character. It is a commendable effort. She has proved her ability to pull off a wide range of roles. The high point of the movie is Santhanam’s whacky comic act. Appearing as the bridegroom chosen by Anjali, his dialogues infuse life into the movie. The audience loves him, except when he goes into double entendre mode. This could have been avoided as it spoils the clean family entertainer status that the movie could have had. The major drawback of Kanden kadhalai is its lack of continuity at places. There are also places where the events seem a bit artificial. The music, which is an important part of any romantic flick, has not worked too well. Only ‘Suttudhu Suttudhu’ makes an impression. Other songs don’t stick to your mind; their placement too is not apt. Camerawork is colorful and well suited to the mood of the film.
Kanden kadhalai is a film for the youth. People with romance in their hearts are bound to enjoy the theme and the subtle hints that the movie gives about love. It seems to be giving out the idea that failing in love or work once does not mean that the world has ended, there is always tomorrow. However, a few glitches in continuity take a toll on the film. Kannan has made a not too bad follow up to Jeyamkondaan. But with his proven credentials and a young cast, the remake of a Hindi superhit should ideally yield better results. Nevertheless, Kanden kadhalai is quite an enjoyable fare for those who love romantic flicks.

Verdict: Youth and love special

Rating : 2.5 / 5

YOGI Review

A Truly Moving Picture "…explores the human journey by artistically expressing hope and respect for the positive values of life." Heartland gave that award to this film.
Tsotsi is a leader of an informal black criminal gang in South Africa. They are simply awful and inhuman and cruel and uncaring. We may understand why they act this way as we see the segregated black slums they live in, and, through flashbacks, their orphan-like upbringing, but you can't bring yourself to forgive them for what they have become. They are some of the worst thugs of the earth.
And then, a tipping point moment comes to the leader Tsotsi. As he commits a car theft from a wealthy neighborhood, he unknowingly kidnaps a baby. He can't bring himself to let the baby die.
Tsotsi clumsily attends to the baby in his small, tin can slum house. He becomes a hybrid human; that is, half good and half evil.
The drama of the film is the tension of not knowing how he will turn out. And he surely can go either way. His gang of friends are a noticeable contrast to where Tsotsi's head and morality is. They are pure evil.
The movie is sub-titled but there is not much dialog among these uneducated almost simpleminded underclass of young men. The powerful impact on the screen is created by the sordid environment and the realism in the facial expressions of the gang. The film is also driven cleverly by the African hip-hop like music.
The film looks at the question whether the worst of our humans on earth can change and tip back into being civilized.

if AMEER directed this Movie with Paruthiveeran KARTHI, this would have turned as a MILESTONE in Karthi's and AMEER's Career...
Karthi's acting skills and Ameer's directional skills would have shaped so well, that this movie could have breaked the previous record of paruthiveeran..
jus my opinion...

Cat 2009 begins

Cat 2009 begins in a new version. The CAT 2009 test has been marred with technical glitches because of which many test takers have been unable to appear for the test and may not be able to do so at a later date. Many are unsatisfied with the test process because they feel that technical glitches in the middle of the test have had a bad effect on their test performance.

Many feel that because of the glitches, some test takers have an unfair advantage in the test. Due to software flaws, some test takers gained additional time after their test restarted mid way because of a glitch but did so with the clock set to zero instead of resuming from where it had stopped. Others were able to solve certain problems on the scratch pad while they waited for their test to be restarted after a glitch had occurred. The staff at many test centers was incompetent and not well trained and did not provide proper and adequate instructions to the test takers.

Arranged or love marriage ??

Arranged Marriage is better than love marraige. I wonder why people think that arranged marraige will always be against their wishes and they will not be consulted at all. The very meaning of arranged marraige is that it has been planned after giving much thought about the pros and cons of the possible relationship.
As a member of family, we should take into confidence our parents and relative before taking such a big decision because it smoothens the path of acceptance to the new member in the family. Human are a social being and they always like to be there where they are cared and loved. An arranged marraige doesnot mean that no love exist between the boy and the girl. It is just that the decision to marry has not been taken without consulting guardian. Arranged marraige brings cohesion in the family and provides better environment for the growth of children also.I do support Arrange marriage bcoz i hav seen a lot of broken relationship in Love marriage cases.

It is but obvious that i can't marry the one whom i don't know and in today's scenario it is very difficult to trust anyone i dont say that the one whom i'll choose is the best but atleast i'll have the benefit of knowing him for long which would help me understand him very well . It doesn't mean that i m against love marriage if in my phase of life i dont come across any person whom i don't love.i would definitely leave it up for my parents to decide the guy for me which i very well know will be the best choice .

How much do I love You

How much do I love You, shall eyes confess
And then to brain through able nerves convey
Shaping thoughts in mind then to heart profess
Which beats with this in time, till life's away

I know not when this magic within worked
And how it loosened hold on my judgment
As if hexed, my ears tuned to tones unheard
Awaiting your breaths in each night's accent

My fingers are the slaves of Your lustre
Which holds the pen like a feather inept
This ink and paper loaned from its Master
The poem the treasure found when feathers swept

Now each part of myself speaks about you
Oft 'tween them but with me they speak so few

Lonesome :(

I’m Lonesome without you…
So lonesome so grey
Without you…

Like a tree…
Withering in autumns…
Like a sky
Without a moon

Am so lonesome
That I would die
Without you…
So lonesome so grey
Without you…

So take me to my end…
Hold my brain
Scratch the memories
And then
Bleed me to death…

Coz I’m so lonesome
So lonesome without you
That I would not live
So take my breath
Take my heart
Pierce it once more

Let the sky fall
Let the earth fall apart
Let the demons torch my soul
Let it be, let it be

But take me to my end
Because am so lonesome
So lonesome without you
That this question of life after
Matters no more to me
I am lost like a tiny bubble
In the hot humid weary life
So do not guard my wit anymore
Just guide me to grave


I’m Lonesome without you…
So lonesome so grey
Without you…
That I would love to die
If I am not to live with you


The song goes on
As mind draws no conclusions
But gets into more confusions
Unlike of Shakespeare’s
That would turn into greatness

There is no trace of sanity
And not be found any rhyme
In a poet’s verses ever again
As the bleakness takes him
From head to the bottom of soul

The song will end someday
But trees will never see the brightness
Of green leaves, as the essence
That brings life has embraced death
The death onto and into itself

So the autumns will persist
For days, years and ages to come
Like a never ending maze
It will shine with black light
With tinge of pain and remorse

Indented Adieu

Freedom ??

They, who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty nor security. Only some time back this thought came to my mind that we often talk about freedom without realizing what actually total and true freedom is. When we are not able to do the things we want , we feel that our freedom is restricted. When we are able to do what we want to do, then we feel we are free. But, I , now , feel that Freedom is when you are able to do what you like and also dislike. When you do only the things that you like, you are free only superficially. You only think that you are free. You are actually ruled by your heart or mind.

Sometimes it’s your heart that wants you do a certain thing and sometimes it’s your mind. So how can you say that you are free when your mind or your heart is ruling your action / thinking and soul?? Total and true freedom is when you have no restrictions , not from your mind , not from your heart , not from any other person… whatever comes your way , if you are able to swim along the tides coming your way easily, then you are truly free. It is only then when there is no restriction from any direction, that you have attained total freedom. Freedom is not merely the opportunity to do as one pleases; neither is it merely the opportunity to choose between set alternatives. Freedom is, first of all, the chance to formulate the available choices, to argue over them -- and then, the opportunity to choose.

As spirits roam the neighborhoods at night,
Let loose upon the Earth till it be light
i believe in the saying that both good and evil forces exist in this i do believe that ghost exists in this world..those souls which have an endless desire,which they are unable to perform before their death,would stay in as the evil force....Nothing on Earth so beautiful as the final haul on Halloween night.
Actually the word ghost in reffers to ''spirit'' or ''soul''..though some of the ghost phenomena have been proven fraud and some of them remain unanswered,.actually the reality of ghost is a controversial subject...there is very small line that seperates the believer from the skeptics....i have heard of so many stories from ma frends describing abt ghosts...mostly it is said that it can be realised through mirror and it is said that they never harm any of the creatures...i am not able to come to a proper conclusion with these it is left to you readers,whether it exist in reality or not??

Lord of my dreams

God of my life
Lord of my dreams
My world encompassed by your presence seems.
My life is your gift , a caretaker I am
I am your student, this life an exam.

This grand ocean, what does it say?
My lord is he, to him I pray.
This sun of million glorious lights,
Was made by you, o lord so bright.

You are the light, you are the height
Of the tallest mount which comes to sight.
My strongest urge to see you fails,
‘cause the spirit has might but the body frails.

The innocence of that feeble child
The love of mother oh! So mild
The care of the father with which he gives
The loaf of bread on which they live.

Are symbols of your love divine
And which you pour out like a wine.

On pearly mats, he walks the groping shore
Head lights don’t scream, yet it’s quiet before.
The hundred streams froth with malice,
Surging, seeping into one sea of filth
All the water from the sky is black
Posts lining lost streets; spiders and golden wasps.
In the gathering light, the city breathes again.

Both he and I get to work, hawk and hate;
Even now it rains, so much for rain.
Puddles fly at him from under the wheels.
Sometimes, the glass rolls down
A fumbling hand drops a note, a coin.
He mouths blessings, rubs clean the panes.
Sometimes, there’s a baby in his arms
He bites his lip, pinching it; now another coin.

Dust and its heat, the shadow in the light;
All his life ensnared, in webbed fingers.
But, for a word, a jeer he spat in mirth,
I drove away; the khaki heckled him and cursed.
A distinct whoopee pierced the sky,
I fled, darting ahead of his angry swipe.
Sea salt swirled; pricking my eyes,
Too early in the day for tears, so say
Motors whirring again; steel blurs in the rain.


Wish there was a person, whom we can fully trust,
Never leave with tears coming with thrust.

Wish there was a poem which can express what I feel,
You left me in a condition which no medicine can heal.

Wish she kept her promise to be with me forever
She was so adamant to leave me; nothing could bring her back ever.

Wish there was a word which could tell her how much I love her,
But she just regarded me as another err..

Wish she could feel my pain,
But every attempt to get her back goes in vain.

Wish there was a magic ball for real,
I could see the future and avoid this ordeal.

If a knew that the hugs were transient, I would never free her from my arms….

Is this Christmas??

Is this Christmas – the season of peace and joy?
A manger most palatial readies,
While a slaughter house readies for cows and lamb.

Is this Christmas – the season of warmth and comfort?
Tall tree glitters next to your hearth,
While we bunker under a tree around mountains distant.

Is this Christmas - the season of love and mercy?
Cards and mails of heart-rending ideals do the round,
While we barely breathe and make ends meet.

Is this Christmas - the season of giving and thanksgiving?
Your worn out socks stick out glittering gifts,
While of ours stick out cold working feet and hands.

Isn’t it Christmas - a season for you and me?
You’re sharing all you’ve got,
While we’re looking at what’ve found.

Yes, this is Christmas – a season for all.
Everyone has something to thank for,
While the earth rejoice in lofty ideals of the season.

Best life??

When do we consider life is going on best? Does it have any relevance when we are born??Else let me put it up in this manner say until we achieve our goals? I just believe the answer is when we realize our latent, reason and fervor. These three things may not come at once. When we as a person feel that we are here for a certain reason, a certain mission that has to be achieved. Even though we may not fully clasp what the reason may be, Just the main idea that our being here is necessary is sufficient enough.

When we find out the most passionate thing for us, it becomes the driving force for us and makes us feel life as an interesting one. When I say it serves a sign for things to come. I mean our passion follows us wherever we go. It just unfurl up throughout our lives beyond our opinion. Passions, I believe are unstoppable once exposed.

The most imperative thing is that knowing we have limitless budding. When we feel our potential which may be in various areas, we in turn can realize how powerful we can become. Potential and power go hand in hand. We must consider ourselves as superior and we must possess some sort of potential in order to feel that we are powerful than others. We consider ABDUL KALAM sir as the most influential person among the young children. Since he has the capacity of bringing in the best thoughts in them.

To begin to live your best life that leads to happiness and understanding one must understand their potential, purpose and passion. And these factors are three out of many and understanding that will lead you one step closer to living your best life.

Vettaikaran Review

This is a typical Vijay film. This film has all the commercial ingredients which you expect from a Vijay movie.

The first half of the film is quite entertaining with nice comedy scenes and the scenes involving Vijay-Anushka were quite good laced with humor. The fight sequence in the first half was really nice and the fans of Ilayathalapathy will definitely enjoy it to the core.

The second half starts quite well and until the Puli Urumudhu song, the movie is really good. After that , the movie travels with a normal pace and thrill until the En Unchi Mandaila song. But the portion after the last folk song could've been better. It will be better if Sun pictures trims the final segment of the film.

Talking about the star cast, Vijay has once again proved that he is capable of carrying the entire burden of the film on his shoulders single handedly. He is the heart and soul of the film.

Anushkha provides ample glamour in songs and she also shares a good screen presence with Vijay in the first half. However, in the second, she just appears here and there before songs.

The other casts too have done justice to their role. Vijay antony's foot tapping songs and a decent BGM are another big asserts to the film

Overall, the movie is above average and with the backing of Sun pictures, one can definitely expect a Super hit status @ Box office.

My Rating : 2.85/5

If the finishing segment is trimmed , then the rating will be 3/5.

Avatar Review

First things first, the movie is just out-of-the-world, both literally and logically. The story happens in a distant planet named Pandora. The Earthlings have found a very rare mineral called Unobtainium in the distant planet and plan to cash in on it. The only problem is the Navi tribe, the native people of the planet who live in harmony with Mother Nature. So, the plan is simple. Create a Navi clone which is controlled by the Hero Jake Sully, make it infiltrate into the Navi' tribe and get them to relocate, leaving all the precious minerals to the Humans. If only life was so simple as we plan it to be. As soon as Jake enters the tribe he meets Neytiri , the princess of the tribe and falls in love with her and the natives' lifestyle. Neytiri teaches the Navi' culture and Jake finds his loyalties changing. After that, its all about pursuing your heart's decisions and doing the right things to save what you care for.

The story is quite generic but don't let it hold you from watching it. You can't expect an art-house cinema in this kind of fantasy setting. Cameroon's latest master piece is like a magic show. It doesn't matter whether you pull a rabbit or a carrot out of the hat, but its how you showcase it is more important and in this case Cameroon has done that like a seasoned pro. He has notched up the bar so high, its gonna take years to level up the playing field again. Avatar is one of those movies where you know right from the start that its a classic-fantasy as in the realms of "The Lord of the Rings". You will be over-whelmed by the sheer scale of visual imagery that you forget that there need to be a story line or that the characters on screen are computer generated models .

Do yourself a favor, grab a couple of tickets, watch it in 3D and show your eyes what it was really meant for, You wouldn't regret it. Every time when I fall asleep, I wish I would be transported to the Pandora as our Jake Sully does. Who knows one day it could turn real!!

After hectic negotiations, finally a breakthrough at the climate talks.

The United States and the BASIC bloc of nations, which include India and China, have agreed on the Copenhagen -- a two-page political declaration with further actions and negotiations scheduled for 2010.

The deal does not commit any nation to emissions cuts beyond a general acknowledgment that global temperatures should be held along the lines agreed to by leading nations in July. There are no overall emissions targets for rich countries.

Countries will be required to list actions taken to cut global warming pollution by specific amounts. The method has been agreed upon for verifying reductions.

Developed nations already covered by the 1997 Kyoto Protocol (the U.S. is not included) would have their emissions cuts monitored and would face possible sanctions if they fail to meet them.

The deal also addresses the issue of funding. Wealthy nations will raise $100 billion a year by 2020 to help poorer nations cope with the effects of climate change, such as droughts and floods. This is contingent on a broader agreement, including some kind of oversight to verify China's emissions of greenhouse gases.

It also mentions short-term funding of roughly $30 billion over three years beginning in 2010 to help developing countries adapt to climate change and shift to clean energy.

"Meaningful" deal

US President Barack Obama said, for the first time in history, all major economies have come to take action against climate change. He said the US has reached a "meaningful" deal to curb greenhouse gas emissions with four emerging economies, including India, but warned it was not enough to battle climate change.

"It is going to be very hard, and it's going to take some time (to achieve a legally binding deal)," he said at the conclusion of the Copenhagen Climate Change Summit.

In particular, as per the Copenhagen Accord, the Kyoto protocol remains and so do the twin-track negotiations. There are no binding cuts for India and the language on monitoring also seems acceptable. Reacting to the breakthrough at Copenhagen, Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh termed it as a good deal for India.

EU leaders called this a very good first step towards saving the world from climate change.

Agreement with smaller group

The agreement between the US and BASIC countries was achieved after Obama held talks with leaders of the four countries, including Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

Talks were also held with European leaders, including British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Smaller nations like Cuba, Bolivia and Venezuela refused to accept the deal, calling the process undemocratic and insulting to them. They questioned how a small group of countries can decide for world.

The protest by these nations is a worrying development, particularly because the UN works by consensus and if enough countries protest and try to block the Accord, then the deal is not allowed to go through.

Down to the wire

The world summit on climate change went down to the wire on Friday night with negotiators guided by heads of government making vigorous attempts to come out with a deal on fighting the challenge of global warming.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in his speech said "Copenhagen may fall short of expectations" as US President Obama made it clear that verification and monitoring has to be part of an overall world deal.

Manmohan Singh stressed that developed countries cannot abandon the Kyoto Protocol under which developed countries are legally-bound to cut their emissions. That agreement expires in 2012. "Each one of us gathered here today acknowledges that those most affected by climate change are the least responsible for it," Singh said.

He added that India will deliver its voluntary target of reducing carbon intensity by 20 per cent by 2020. This refers to the measure of emissions per unit of economic activity. "We have a difficult task ahead of us. I hope we will play a positive and constructive role so that we bridge our differences and come out with a balanced and an equitable outcome in the coming years. India will not be found wanting in this," he said.
