கவிதையானவள்

அவளை பற்றி நினைத்தால் கவிதை தான் வருகிறது

கவிதையை பற்றி நினைத்தால் வேறு என்ன வரும்?

சீக்கிரம் முடிந்ததிலும்

நெஞ்சில் நிறைந்ததிலும்

அவளும் ஹைக்கூ கவிதையும் ஒன்றுதான்!

வாழ்கை அவ்வளவு சுலபம் இல்லை, ஆனா போராடணும்!

இத எழுதலாமா வேண்டாமான்னு ரொம்ப யோசிச்சேன் , இதை எழுதற அளவுக்கு என்ன சாதிச்சேன்னு மனசு கேக்குது , நிறைய தப்பு கூட இருக்கும்னு நினைக்கிறேன் .

மனசில நனச்சத அப்படியே எழுதனும் .. அதுக்காகத்தான் இந்த பதிவு.

கிட்டதட்ட 4 வருஷத்துக்கும் முன்னாடி, முதல் முறை பார்வை இல்லாதவங்களுக்காக படிக்க போனது இன்னமும் நல்லா ஞாபகம் இருக்கு. ராஜேந்திரன் என்கிற இசை கல்லுரி மாணவனுக்கு படிச்சேன். ரொம்ப நல்ல படிக்கறீங்க , உங்கள மாதிரி வேகமா , தங்கு தடை இல்லாம படிக்கறவங்க நிறைய பேர் இல்லைன்னு சொன்னான்.

என்னமோ அதுவே அடுத்தடுத்த வாரம் போகறதுக்கு ஊக்கமா இருந்தது.
ஒவ்வோரு வாரமும் வெவ்வேறு மாணவர்கள். நானும் செய்தி வாசிப்பவர் மாதிரி கஷ்டபட்டு, ஏற்ற இறக்கதோட படிக்க, அவங்க மத்தியிலே பேசப்படற அளவுக்கு வந்துட்டேன்.

வாரம் ஒரு முறை போகறத பெருமையா நெனச்சுகிட்டேன். என்னமோ நான் ரொம்ப பெரிய சமூக சேவை செய்யறா மாதிரி எல்லர் கிட்டேயும் சொன்னேன். இப்படி இருந்த நான் ஒரு முறை கோடம்பாக்கத்துல இருக்கிற ஹாஸ்டலுக்கு போனேன். அது ஒரு governement free hostel for sc/bc students. பார்வை இல்லாத 20 பேர் அங்கே இருக்காங்க. அவங்களுக்காக ஒதுக்க பட்ட room ,…

மின்னலைப் பார்த்ததில்

ஓரே.. ஒரு முறை

என்னைக் கூப்பிடு,
என் பெயராவது உன் உதடுகளை..

ஓரே.. ஒரு முறை

என்னைப் பார்,
விழிகளின் வழியே உன்னுள் ஒரு நொடி நான்.

நிலவில் வசிப்பது சாத்தியமாம்
உன்னில் நான்?

நிலவினால் தான் அலைகள் உருவாகின்றன
என் நெஞ்சிலும் கூட.

எண்ணிக் கொண்டு இருக்கிறேன்...
இப்பொழுது என்ன செய்கிறாய் என
எப்பொழுதும்.

எப்பொழுதாவது என்னை எண்ணுவாய் என
இப்பொழுதும்.
மின்னலைப் பார்த்ததில்,
கண் மட்டுமல்ல
இதயமும் போனது.

மின்னலுக்காக
வானம் திறந்துதான் இருக்கிறது
என் இதயமும்.

இதோ இன்னுமொரு..

மேகங்கள் மல்லு கட்ட,

சாலையெல்லாம் கறுப்பு பூக்கள் பூக்க,

காற்றும் மரங்களும் சண்டையிட,

தண்ணீர் கோலமிட,

சில இதயங்கள் ஈரமாக,

இதோ இன்னுமொரு மழைக்காலம்!

Its not luck but lobster claws

last week I was called by one of my friend to donate blood. Thats for his building contractor who was undergoing a major bypass heart surgery. While in the blood bank, the nurse said that the patient had received blood from 14 volunteers(which is more than required). 6 matching donors ( his group being b -ve) and the rest will be exchanged for b-ve group.

"Lucky" might be the word that comes to your mind. But, the point is whatever we deserve comes to us. My dad always say " the result of the goodness will find its way back to the person, just like the calf comes back to the mother cow amidst huge cattle." I am sure it does!

Even when we lose things, the ones which we deserve find its way back to us. Its not luck sometimes but lobster claws. Confused ? Look at this real story,

A swimmer who lost his wallet during a late night dip has had it returned, thanks to a lobster!
A deep sea diver caught the lobster and found it in the crustacean's claws.

The wallet vanished …

என் முகத்தை எனக்குக் காட்டியவர்கள்

வாழ்க்கை எனக்கு பலமுறை வெறுத்து போனதுண்டு
காலம் கூட கனமாய் தோன்றிய நாட்களுண்டு

வாரம் ஒரு முறை இவர்களுக்காக
படிக்க போவதை மட்டும்
வாடிக்கை ஆக்கிக் கொண்டேன்.. எனக்காக

கடந்த மூன்று வருடங்களாய்
வாழ்கைக் கல்வி கற்றுக் கொண்டிருக்கிறேன்

ஆணியால் எழுதுவதால் என்னவோ
என் நெஞ்சில் ஆழப் பதிந்துவிட்டார்கள்

சூரியன் கூட நிலவுக்கு வெளிச்சம் தந்த
பெருமையை அறிந்திருக்கலாம்,
இவர்கள் பெருமை அறியாத, வேண்டாத சூரியன்கள்

இவர்கள் எனக்கு உபதேசம் செய்ததில்லை
இவர்கள் வாழும் உபதேசங்கள்

இவர்கள் நான் படிக்க கேட்பவர்கள்
எனக்கு பாடம் கற்றுத்தருபவர்கள்

தம் முகத்தை தாம் பார்த்ததில்லை
இவர்கள்தாம் என் முகத்தை எனக்குக் காட்டியவர்கள்

பார்க்காமலேயே
என்னை வரைந்தவர்கள்

தடி கொண்டு நடந்தே
எனக்கு வழி காட்டியவர்கள்

கண்ணில்லாமலேயே
என் கண் திறந்தவர்கள்

சினிமா, ஜீன்ஸ், காதல் போன்றவற்றுக்கு மட்டுமே,
கல்லூரி வாழ்க்கையை அர்ப்பணித்தவர்கள் மத்தியில்
இவர்களும் படிக்கிறார்கள்

அதே புத்தகம்,
அதே பாடங்கள்,
அதே வாய்ப்பை தேடித்தராத போதும்!

தன் காலில் நிற்க வேண்டி ஒரு போராட்டம்
அமைதியாகவே, ஒவ்வோரு நாளும்

இருட்டில் இருந்து கொண்டும் உழைக்கிறார்கள்
வெளிச்சம் வரும் என்கிற நம்பிக்கை…

அப்படித்தான்

Image
கூட்டம் கூடவில்லை என
மேகம் காத்திருக்குமா?

கவிதை ஏழுத ஆளில்லை என்று
நிலா மரியல் செய்து பார்த்ததுண்டா?

பரிசு தரவில்லை என
குயில் பாட மறுக்குமா?

முகர்ந்து பார்ப்பவரில்லை என்று
மலர் மொட்டாகுமா?

உனக்கான என் காதலும் அப்படித்தான்!

1000 sunsets

When I went to cafeteria last evening , I couldnt stop admiring the wonderful sunset.It like gold glittering everywhere. Its bright, its gold and yellow .It feels heaven.
God must be a painter! While thinking about this , I also remembered one of my favorite song by MLTR - Paint my love written by jascha richter. Isn't it amazing to compare ones love to 1000 sunsets!If one sunset is so beautiful what can I say about 1000!

I always get mesmerized by such beautiful lyrics. I was wondering whether I can watch a perpetual sunset. I mean a sunset which never end. Of course Yes... I can do. If you are wondering why I have gone nuts, here is the principle not from me.. but from "how stuff works"

Let's say you are in plane flying westward around the Earth's equator. At the equator, the time zones are a little over 1,000 miles (1,609 km) apart, so to cross one every hour, your plane would have to fly at over 1,000 miles per hour (1,609 kph). If you started flying at 12:00 no…

Religious riots

Blogging seemes to be impossible. Everyday I am thinking of writing a new post, but I get the feel I am not good enough. I couldn't stop comparing myself to bloggers who get lots of comments even for their two line posts. The only way to overcome the fear of writing bad a post is by writing one :). I mean practice does makes one perfect and this isn't going to stop me from expressing myself.

I often hear people saying they are very spiritual. Later I find out all they were mentioning is about the puja they do. Some people use spirituality word without knowing the meaning of it.

There are two different things - being religious / being spiritual. what ever one do like performing the rituals of one particular religion doesn't make him spiritual for example saying slokas and doing puja that's not spirituality ,but religious. what Adhi Shankarar has experienced, what he preached in bhaja govindham,what he explained in his nirvana ashtakam is spiritual.

Spirituality is journey …

Chennai Crows

The crows in Chennai are happy with arrival of another statue for Shivaji Ganesan.
Don't we had enough statues on the road already?
wouldn't it be better if these statues are either in museum or at parks rather than on road ?
Don't we have enough traffic problems already?
With due respect to Shivaji for his acting , Its unnecessary to crowed up the roads with all these statues. And when there is a remembrance day these roads gets blocked by the politicians to show "media respect" to the statues. In fact leaders(if alive)will be extremely happy to see their statues removed for the better traffic and not to get pooped by crows.

As the traffic problem getting worse everyday in Chennai, we will soon face challenges in getting to office or to satisfy our basic needs such as water supply. I cannot stop comparing cities like London in this matter. Everyone uses metro/tube trains, which is fast and efficient way to roam inside the city. Most of them live outside city and trav…

Veggie Delight

Leather shoes are my favorite ones, I always like to wear them shining.
Every now and then I buy silk sarees for my mom.
Whether its National geographic or Animal planet Lion chasing a mammal would be my game show.
No need to tell about my liking towards leather belts and purse.

But if some asks me ..chaa I am vegetarian!

What the heck, Am I a lactic vegetarian?(since I take milk) Am I a Ova vegetarian (since I take egg through cakes). First of all Am I a vegetarian ?

When I go abroad Some of acquaintances amazes how I can live on vegetables and fruits. How far can a religious belief make one forbid tasty food (according to them). I don't eat flesh because I am a Hindu, I don't eat them because of my choice. I was brought up in a Hindu family. I was always told that's a forbidden bad food, bad smell. Now even if I want to eat/taste it I still don't like it.

Leaving aside my choice, I happen to read an article which talks about the best suited food for human body.
The study spe…

Forward Blues

This post is my mail to one of my friend who supports reservation. The reservation issue talks are bummed now but still I felt like blogging it here.

"India must be the only country in the world, where people fight to be called backward" ,

you know what, its no more social equality it has become the privilege for the backward, they appear to be against the caste system but they are the one who are very interested in reservations. They are in majority and has to be given this privilege and they should be guarded at all costs, through false theories, lies, fictitious stories, emotional blackmail and threats. even today many crimes are committed against SC/STs in villages by powerful OBC and of course with political support/background.

I think after 50 years of independence its the middle class which needs social equality.Middle class do not live a life as what mehta has depicted.
They strive to give good education to their children.And their dreams are simply whipped off when on t…

So much to listen

There are three reasons to write this post,
No1 - I don't want the " not a good post " to be the first one when people open my blog, not to be too negative and whining.
No 2 - I want to keep writing so that I can improve my writing skills.
No3 - well oops!, I don't have a third reason, but 3 reasons seems like a good number :)

I was in A R rehman music coma and just came out of it. Seriously what happened to this guy , I did see "Range de pasanti" and "mangal pandey" but I really dont see a A R rehman of Roja, Indira, Alaipayudhey days. I hear some news about him now and then that he is doing concerts in abroad or doing some stuff, but seriously this guy seems to have lost his roots as Tamil music director.

When I heard the latest Wordspace advertisement where he defines what music is, wow cant stop admiring the background music he composed for that advertisement. while writing this blog also it keeps buzzing in my mind like repeating record.

I am ready…

The one with F.R.I.E.N.D.S

I want to live with my friends, "no sex partiality". Living together in a same house as in " 5 Star" movie. If you really think about it, Its not just fun and easy. It needs a lot of understanding bonding between friends.But once you are sure about your friends. I dont think it will be hard . It will be kind of 21st century joint family. if anyone thinking why suddenly I am getting this weird idea of "living with friends" should know about the serial which flabbergasted me.

A bunch of friends living next to each other in a Newyork apartment. They hang out all the times, either at coffee house or at a apartment. Anyone who is fan of the great F.R.I.E.N.D.S serial would be bubbling to answer right now :) .Friends serial is about six friends who support each other no matter what happens. As the title song goes...
" So no one told you life was gonna be this way
Your job's a joke, you're broke, your love life's D.O.A.
It's like you're alwa…

Not a good post

Not a good news to share, but I wish everyone should understand the difference between loving your job and loving your company. People may recall Mr.Narayan Muthy's speech regarding this.( For benefit of those who haven't gone through that , I have attached it at the end of this blog). This blog is all about the real incident which I underwent recently.

I am with my current employer (Just to ensure no one from my company gets hurt if they read it) for the last three and half years. I was awarded 4 times as best employer by the company based on my work and also promoted to senior level during my first year of service. This is not to boast but to let you guys know the background of this. I was promoted as " SMS administrator" two and half years ago. During that time there was no professional training given to me as there was no training center in Chennai which offered that. But I managed using books and internet. I had few downfalls but I made it high. Even customer was…

senesced

This blog isn't about a special story, or a incident, or something to impress everyone. So don't try to juice ur brain to find one :)

An-other (its just not another)morning with archanai ( slang for scolding) from mom for not locking the front door properly in the night. Being the last one to sleep I usually do that without forgetting, but u never know when you will miss.

"Sorry mom , I forgot . I wont do it again "." You forgot to pay the telephone bill as well"..But She isn't stopping at all .Its slowly turning into Laksha archani (a lakh scolding). " Mom I am hungry" this is the trick I always do when things go out of control. " Just brush up and come I have dosa ready for you " ( It works like a miracle , well always !)

One time, My dad checked in the midst of the night whether I locked the door or not but I wasn't, So he locked and went to bed. Thank God I was little awake at that time and I turned the whole thing against my da…

Lifting thought

This is my first blog..and this effectively means anyone who is blogging for a long time , is not advised to read this blog :)

well it all started couple of months ago. After getting burnt in the mid hot summar day, ( as I work for UK , my shift always starts at 1 pm - damm UK timings ) i searched space to park my old worn out TVS excel in my office parking lot. More than the driving and the traffic, finding a place to park in the hot sun made me a very angry person in the world.

One of our HR staff Manoj passed by saying a low " Hi " its as if I know you exist but i am too busy to say more than Hi and I never care whether you reply or not. I managed to squeeze in my vehicle as well as a better "Hi". " Isn’t it very hot today " ( Appraisal is coming so I had to be nice ) . With what seemed to be eternity he replied " Yeah I guess " ( edhukku ketrukkeva vendam )

My cell needed some attention..Here again.. i dont know why people always call me when i…
