Behind every Successful Man......

yesterday myself and my colleague were having a discussion about women's lib and its consequences. being a woman herself she alleged me of Male chauvanism and qouted the very old adage "Behind every successful man there is a woman". with due respect to some of the supportive women i would like to point out the misinterpretation of this wonderful adage...the adage was originally meant to caution every man abt women's nature..sure women fall in line only for successful men...i haven't seen any woman go behind an unsuccessful man... i would like to put forth a classic example in support of my theory.. i knew a guy in my college who found his "TRUE LOVE" there and after his "fall in love" process implementation he achieved phenomenal growth..everyone said it was bcos of the girl he loved, i too agree with tht, if he didn't improve then his "TRUE LOVE" would have found another "TRUE LOVE"....
Being aware of the truth is better than somebody else making you aware..

Patriotism or Hypocrisy

August 15, 1947, 0.00hrs...

trumpets were blowing, people were marching through the streets, sweets were distributed, tricolor was hoisted high its the time to enjoy..its our independence day..

August 15 2004, 0.00hrs..

everyone is in deep sleep, some snoring others tossing around,

August 15 2004, 8.00 hrs..

i was going to get vegetable s for my mom ( i dont feel helping in household chores is a prestige issue for guys) when a small kid living in the flat opposite my house came running to me and gave me a tricolor to pin it on my shirt as he had done so..i took it but refused to pin it, well the kid had to go of the not so young not so old (around 35yrs) person who was watching this scene came to me and asked tht question that enraged me to such an extent it made me loose my cool on the middle of the road..this is wat he asked " y did u refuse to wear the flag ? r u not patriotic?" the next thing he said was even more ridiculous " look at us we r wearing the flag cos we are patriotic" (this is a rough translation of wat the man said and meant).. i was so enraged i couldnt think properly on the road..but the moment i took control i started rolling with laughter at the exhibition of ignorance frm tht person ( he is working as a Software engineer who has recently returned frm USof A)..
wat does it mean to be patriotic?? is it just pinning the tricolor on independence day?? how many Indian know the time duration for our National Anthem? how many of us know who wrote Vande Mataram?? well we dont try to find out anything abt our country but just celebrate independence day as any other festival like Diwali or sankaranti..this is the most ignominous thing to do to our my view this amounts to hypocrisy and not patriotism cos we pin the tricolor today and fly off the next day to US of A or UK or anyother damn country in the atlas rather than stay here and fight ( this is not to point finger at any one..this is a personal opinion)..
in my view patriotism is to do with the kind of attitude ppl show towards their country, towards their ppl and so on and so forth and remaining things are either hyprocrisy or total bullshit.

wow i think i'll put it to rest.. cos i would have stirred quite a lot of hornet's nest..i just wanted ppl to know the difference between the two...

P.S: hope this is not read by any politician (or wannabe politicos)..even then I say GO TO HELL!!!!!!

9-5 bug and the Dog Leash!!!

well its been so long since i have written..its all due to the 9-5 bug and the Dog
Chain..well until the last week i used to enjoy my life like there's no tomorrow..but now i have landed in something that is worse than i could ever imagine cut long story short i have been thrust with a 9-5 job..i basically dont like to stretch even my small finger for anything and now i'm here stretching all my 20 fingers....i've been hit by the 9-5 bug and to compound it all the people i work for have put a dog leash around my neck(i'm talkin abt my id card)..i had ridiculed most of my frnds who are working in leading software companies abt the way they have their icard around their neck but never in my life thought tht one day
i would be in tht position..i've been made to eat my words and eat i did....guys it really is bad on my part to ridicule u, now i know how a dog feels if its put on leash, i've become a member of SPCA and especially towards dogs..and to add to my woes everybody here is breathing down my neck saying "Do this Do that" and i'm not allowed even a single minute rest, they r not even considering the fact tht i'm a fresher and its just a week since i joined...well its useless to wait for Microsoft or Linux to do something about this bug, i think i have to do somethin abt it myself (with some help frm my frnds!!!!)..[i dont like to work for someone.i want to be my own master]

Thank U and Mention Not!!!!!

i had this experience while returning from my college by TamilNadu
Express..i was sleeping in my berth while at vijayawada somebody woke me up and requested me to shift berths as there was a girl with him and she couldnt climb up ( that idiot shifted me to the upper berth).. as kind-hearted as i was i immediately obliged.. the girl thanked me for that and as was my custom i acknowledged by saying "Mention Not" and then came the funnniest part!! she looked at me preplexed and asked me to repeat what i said..i think she couldnt get what i said or she was not used to mention nots!!!! this caught me offgaurd and made me sit up and think in the middle of the night as to the correct reply for a "Thank U".. i spinned my grey cells or what was left of it after a tedious week after project to research a solution (best possible) for it....well in my research i found that different people prefer different acknowledgments for that word...
these are some examples :
well a Briton of High Class will say "Its a pleasure" when he is confounded by this word that too by a beautiful Lady.and any ordinary Briton would say "Mention Not" for a reply and that
was what we had been drilled to say in our primary..our English Teachers Mrs.Kamakshi and Mrs.Sulochana had drilled us like anything to say "mention Not" whenever somebody said Thank Q.. and we were supposed to practice saying it among ourselves while we borrow something or my friends to do some favour for me..
well coming to the next country the Americans usual word of ack.. would be "u r welcome" or "anytime" coming to the desi version..we indians are habituated to saying "No Problems" or to put it in the words of today's youth "No Probs"!!!!. well
as far as my knowledge goes No probs or No problem for that matter is said whenever some say "Sorry"...but only in India u find the same reply for two different queries and that too when the queries are poles apart..well i just managed to say NO PROBS to that girl for which she presented me with a very beautiful smile of hers in the middle of the night..but i'm still confused as to what should be said ??? and now i have this big concern about where the language is going in this cul-de-sac of hip and hop world of today..."QUO VADIS ENGLISH"....well is this concern a futile one in a land where there is still some alienation towards this foreign language???

Previliges of a Previliged Few!!!

today i was made witness to a very pathetic sight in my house....the sight of a boy with his 10th standard certificates begging to be provided something for his higher education...this sight made my conscience (Manasaatchi)give me a kick on my back and say "look at that boy, though he has meagre resources he earns for education but you who is as previliged as the next guy does nothing but while away time with useless thing"..this brought out a fierce statement from my mother...she said there are large no. of people who are underpreviliged but who have brilliance to make to the top and there are also large no. of people who have all the previliges in the world and waste all of them away..and her last statement hurt me the most..well she said "Try to find out in which category u belong to????"....well i do try to use most of my previliges responsibly (My educational Qualification speaks for that) but i sometimes feel that i'm wasting some of them too!!!!! why does this happen??is it that i was brought up without even knowing what it is to be hungry for a day!! or without knowing how much my father would have spent up both physically and mentally for bringing me up to this stage!!! what am i going to do to rectify my situation and that of the others like me and those on the opposite bank of the river called PRIVILIGE??????

My Own Writer's Block!!!!!!

Its been more than a week since my last post...i've been suffering from what professional writer's call a "Writer's Block" (i think so) was only sunday that I and my friend santhosh were discussing about blogging.. he said it took him on an average 3-4 hrs to write an article fot the blog..well i never had problems with my thought process and its flow..i write what comes to my mind (atleast until last week) with euphemistic words wherever is the reason why i tend to digress from what i intend to write....this mistake of mine has been pointed out by many people...ok lets come to the main part of discussion..." Why Do People Write??" everybody has his own friend said he wanted to improve his writing abilities so i write...i justify myself by saying that I like to think and writing makes me think!!!!(some may feel it as absurd...for them an old tamil adage is applicable).. i always try to keep my mind churning out something(good)..i dont like keeping my mind idle and the best way to keep it working is making it think something to
write...until last week i had lots of ideas to write upon but suddenly all those ideas have vanished into thin air.....i dunno whether there is dearth of ideas to write upon or the unilateral
thinking...whatever it may be hope it doesnt last long so that i dont long much.......

Bachelor Of Arts!!!!

It’s been a long while since I heard this degree being spoken in awe. My father used to relive those nostalgic moments in his college and used to say that it was a great feeling to be studying in college in those days (cos many people stop studying after completing their PUC (XII std.)). Wat has replaced this awe inspiring B.A or the B.Sc degree these days.B.E of course (no points for correct guessing). Being an Engineer myself I shouldn’t have attempted this post but I felt intrigued today from my father’s nostalgic moments as to what has led to the downfall (erosion) of these degrees? Why do we students tend to look down upon these courses and leave it to the lesser mortals who have had a casual attitude towards studies or are the creative spark in our students died down? Or is it the proliferation of tech jobs that has dimmed the creativity of guys?
My friends in college used to attend different cultural events and bag prizes in quiz and other academic oriented competitions, but when it comes to art forms they most of the time stood second to the guys from ARTS colleges (Take that for creativity). I think the cause of this looking down upon scenario may be the way in which the tech comp are leading our generation (With a carrot at the end of the stick, but where does the stick end nobody knows). Who is to blame for this attitude of the students?? Parents?? Who instill into their children right from their childhood that they have to be an engineer or a doctor when they grow up and nothing else , or the schools??? Which wants to have Atleast 3 state ranks in the board exams and for this jails its students inside the house with nothing but books right from standard VI, or the students themselves who after completing their X shake their heads to their parent’s choices and suppress their interests.
Well definitely this has to change, when and by whom I leave to the wise people. Last but not the least being an engineer I’ve had constant doubts regarding what might the future hold for these graduates when my future itself looks bleak??
Lets not make the Bachelor Of Arts extinct like the dinosaur!!!

I’m Ten!!!

This post turns me 10 posts old..well it’s a great moment for me, I enter the group of double-digiters!! Still I’m a novice here..but I’m proud that I’m in a group where there are so many greats…I may have made lots of mistakes in my previous posts and articles but I’m learning fast and improving kindly bear with me cos I wish to play a Dravidian innings….

A request : please leave ur esteemed comments after u read my posts, it’ll help me improve myself..

The Confessions Of A Solitary Reaper..

(The title was coined from my two favourite poems “The Confessions Of A Born Spectator” and “Solitary Reaper” which I read in class XI)

I’m a solitary reaper ( an euphemistic term for telling everyone that I’m a loner)..being a loner has its own perks. U have the undivided attention of both ur parents and well u get everything u wish for..but it has its own downfall too. I’m enjoying the status of monopoly in my household(like Microsoft) …I’ve had moments when I enjoyed this monopolistic status but the main problem is by being monopolistic I fail to realize the brand loyalty I enjoy (it needs competition to project the true worth of any organisation)…coming to the better part of the story, I used to envy (when I was a immature) my friends who had either a sister or brother, the childhood sibling rivalry, the doting and wat not..i’ve lived a vicarious life of my own (I’m a kind of Schizophrenic paranoid) with an elder sister who dotes on me, fights with me and buys me all sorts of things that I wish for..well I take it granted that all the lone wolves in the world would have lived such vicarious lives themselves at some point or other…coming to the most IRONICAL THING “ ALL MY FRIENDS HAVE EITHER A BROTHER OR A SISTER” ..what a world I live in???????? I took this count while I was thinking of a better topic to write..and if u ask my friends who have been very close to me they would give an opinion quite contrasting to whatever I’ve written here and falsify my proclamation as an OUTSIDER/SOLITARY REAPER…

How to Name It ??????

(This is a dedication to the Directors and Producers and all the people involved behind the scene in creating a Tamil Movie..)

I’ve often wondered about the relativity of movies to its title..people keep exotic names to their creation just to bring the audiences to the cinema hall..the recently released English flick “THE DAYAFTER TOMORROW” ..well wat happens the day after tomorrow..the world and its inhabitants are raced to the ground by mother nature..well y does it have to happen day after tomorrow and not some other day (today for instance)..well there have been lotsa exotic names in Hindi and Tamil Film industry..a recent Bharathi Raja Flick “Kangalal kaithu sai” well the heroines eyes were not tht mesmerizing to arrest someone..there have been evidence of such idiosyncracy in the moviedom…I don’t want to imagine the reason behind this..but I would definitely like to meet the person(S) who think of such exotic names tht don’t fit the story that is being told…

Middle-Class Mentality

Well I don’t know how much relevance does the heading have to the body but I’m trying to improve the correlation coefficient to 1. Coming to the matter at hand, I wanted to say something about (u’ll understand it at the end of the post (kinda Maniratnam style)). Today there was an association meeting held in our house…I think India is the only country in the world that has associations of every kind from labour unions to association for each and every caste,creed and social class…so we too have our association and since my dad holds one of the higher offices in the body we had this meeting at our house. It was attended by one and all starting from the State President of the association to the Panchayat President. I had a chance to shake hands and rub shoulders with some of the heavyweights (literally Heavyweights).. well that’s not the point..coming to the crux I was kind of shy to go out and participate in those activities…well is the brought up and the surroundings or is it the introvertedness in me that has pushed me to this position…I don’t think I’m that much of an introvert cos I mingle well with people..but y not today??? Well I’m a person raised in a surrounding completely filled with conservative and orthodox (sometimes both) people, people who think about the consequences (reaction) before they put forth their actions (I don’t want to figure out NEWTON’S reaction about this)…so I do have lotsa doubts in my mind about coming forward and contributing to the association of our caste..(or is it the broad-mindedness in me thinking it stupid to have associations of this kind, partitioning fellow human beings in the name of caste??) …the first time my father said he was holding such a post I couldn’t bask in his achievement ( cos this association is politically affiliated), I didn’t want my father to have anything with politics…I didn’t know the reason for my behavior at that time ( I still don’t know the reason!!) is this wat people call “Middle-class Mentality???????”..

I Sleep, I dream, I conquer(don’t know wat) !!!!

I had this strange dream last night (or should I say a nightmare) well I became an acclaimed writer and was receiving an award in a big international conference (I assume I was awarded the Booker) and I was making my nation proud..well don’t u assume too much this is not about me being a writer or awards but about dreams. People who have achieved something in their respective fields have asked others to dream “dare to dream” was their motto (Atleast some said this).corporatively speaking dreams give out big innovations(thts wat the Americans say). But physiologically speaking dreams are caused by the projection of latent image by the cerebrum. The optical area of the cerebrum projects the latent images which are seen only when the other areas are at rest. Now coming to the psychologists point of view “ dreams project the latent characteristics of a particular person”.research says that a persons characteristics can be identified by monitoring his with Minority Report “criminals can be identified before a crime is committed by monitoring the dream pattern.” Well saying is easy but action is difficult as valluvar said “ solluthal yaarkum eliya ariyavam solliya vannam seyal”. Moreover there is another argument stating tht man can generate dream and can alter his pattern as he wishes.. this is like getting immune to different torture techniques which spies today are taught first…well the next time u get a dream or nightmare for tht matter take a minute to analyse tht cos there may be some truth hidden somewhere deep inside them (u may be a criminal too or a psychopath ).

My Trysts with Destiny

“Fortune Favours The Brave” – well this adage may be very old but it’s very true too. Well at least in my life it has been proved true not once but 5 times. I recently (day before yesterday) had a narrow escape from the Lord of the Under World. So I thought y not share all of those encounters with Destiny (near Death Scenarios) with all of the netizens. I’ve chronologically arranged my “Close Encounters”. (Some of them may be in Filmy style please bear .. It’s a true story)

Oct 3,2001:

This is one of the most unforgettable day in my life. Well it was my friend’s b’day and he was taking us to treat (For a movie MI-2). The movie was not worth the risk I took that day. We went to the afternoon show in a theatre in Trichy where I was doing my graduation. We were traveling in a bus and I got down at a stop to make way for other passengers to get down and decided to board the bus after it started (well some heroics) but my plan backfired when I lost grip and had to board the bus on my knees instead of my legs. Well the conductor got irritated by my modus operandi and gave me earful. it was most embarrassing to get shouted at in front of all my friends and other passengers. It also stands top in the list of my most embarrassing moments.

A day in Aug 2001:

This incident happened in front of my college. I decided to free myself from the jail(my hostel) so I became a day scholar and have been one for the past 6 months. since I was a day scholar I had to catch a bus to reach my house. So that day was no different and there was so much rush in the bus stand for the one bus that plies in that route. In my eagerness catch a seat for me and my friend Radhakrishnan (we call him ROD) I tried to board the bus while it was still moving. Now again I lost my grip and found my left foot dangling under the bus inches away from the back wheel. The conductor of this bus happened to be a friend of our college so instead of shouting at me pulled me up. Atleast I achieved my objective one way or the other, I got a seat but was rewarded with injuries in my leg.

One day in September 2001:

This again happened when me and my friends were loitering in the main roads of Thanjavur. We were about to catch a bus for home(well the bus stand was little bit far away,so we decided we’ll board the bus on running) well the decision backfired too as always thanks to me..I lost my balance and was literally on all fours beside a moving bus. Well at that moment I thought I was a gonner for good, well luck and some help from my friends saved the day for me.

January 25,2002:

I wont forget this day in my whole life. Well it was the day of “The Disaster”. It was my friend’s b’day and three of us were planning to come to Chennai for writing an exam. Since my friend was supposed to be waiting at a bus stop and since it was already late sanjeeth wanted to catch an auto while I was hell-bent on going by bus. But majority won and we caught an auto and were cruising at a speed of about 40kmph when all of a sudden a big lorry tyre fell in front of the auto. The auto hit the tyre and at that speed lost its balance and tumbled sideways. I was sitting beside the window (I mean the closed side, the side in which the auto tumbled) and in a flash of a second I was lying prostrate on the ground with the auto on my right arm, and my luggage on my back. The lorry cleaner who had dropped the tyre had ran away and none came forward to lift the auto from my hand except sanjeeth (Thanks da otherwise I wud have had my garlanded photo hanging from a nail in my house). The icing on the cake was the appearance of a matador van that was approaching at us faster than anybody cud imagine.thank god the brakes were perfect cos the van braked just in front of us and took a detour. The most irritating part was that another friend (classmate) of us who was passing that way ridiculed us when we told him what happened a few minutes back. Watta dodo he was (this is wat I thought abt him at tht time)

May 29, 2004:

Well it has been 2 years without any incident and I was breathing a sigh of relief. God thought “ well he has been happy for the past 2 years, lets put some misery into his life. Create an accident”.and Kazaammm!!! It accident. I’m typing this with my one hand cos I’m unable to lift the other. It happened like this me and my frnd Harish were traveling from his house to arumbakkam, the drive went smoothly till I reached that curve on kotturpuram rd. when all of a sudden a man was in front of my vehicle and a car beside me at 50kmph I cudnt just apply the brakes so I swerved my bike to avoid hitting the man and my bike’s crash bar just crashed into the car’s backside and there I was lying on the ground with the bike on me without knowing wat happened in between. Well harish got scratches all over his body from his arm to thighs to toe. And I had injuries throughout the upper right side, muscle injury in my right shoulder being the greatest and lotsa scratches on my face surrounding my right eye and a big mound in my head god knows wat happened there. Well since it was half-peak hour we were saved from being taken to the burial ground directly from the spot. Well afterward we had a medical checkup and raked our brains to spin a big yarn to my parents abt the accident.
Thank God nothing happened to the bike.

So these have been my “Close Encounters Of 3rd Kind” and I consider myself 5 time lucky ( I’m thinking of putting a plaque in front of my house displaying “5STAR” ).
Hope to have more closer encounters in the future…..

Hollywood, Bollywood, Kollywood and All the different woods in the forest

It was only day before yesterday that I watched the most-talked about tamil film “Ayitha Ezhuthu” of course. This is not only about Ayitha Ezhuthu (I’ll call it AE frm hereon) or any other Maniratnam movies; this is about Indian cinema at large. Most say that AE was inspired from “Amorros Perros” and for that matter any Indian film is said to be an inspiration from a foreign work. Any work for that matter must have been inspired from something or someone. This is the only industry where widespread plagiarism is said to be prevalent. And it is worrisome on the part of the western world to brand works from third world as plagiarized if they depict things other than war, crimes and sickening social conditions. I’m not a Hollywood basher and all but its pathetic to see them brand great movies as inspired from something western. Do they think only they have brilliance and them and only them can create masterpieces? There have been geniuses born in the eastern world too. From Kurosawa to John Woo, from Satyajit Ray to Shyam Benegal there have been lots of geniuses born and masterpieces created. It is the genius ness of the creator that transcends into the minds of the common man and not the inspiration. Moreover Hollywood also has its own share of trash that they churn out to audiences. So it’s not fair to ditch movies on the basis of from where they were inspired. Audiences should bath in the genius ness of the creator rather than think from where they were inspired.

Interview Rising (a real life story)



Chennai, Year 2004A.D

In the not sooo future (Supposedly 3 months frm now) it was prophesized (in Economic Times to be precise) that there would rise a spate of interviews (but no jobs i'm sure!!!).

Shot 1: A paper flapping on a desk...a man standing behind it his hand behind his back
overlooking the window gray clouds passing over the horizon. Everything is still...(ITS TIME I CUT THIS CINEMATIC CRAP!!!!!!!!!)


Well i just wanted to share some of my travails i experienced at an interview....once upon a time after completing my time at college i attended a test for ( GOD KNOWS WAT POSITION) for a leading MNC bk...well unfortunately i got short-listed and was requested to take the HOT SEAT (Even MTV's HOT SEAT may not be this HOT)....i was to be screwed in two-phases ( God wat a well planned screwing...i'm jealous of those guys who get job by just writing a test INFY GUYS DONT GET UPSET !!)..first by the dept manager and then by dept head himself!!!..Well i already had butterflies flying all over inside me. And to top it all i was made to wait 45 minutes for my showdown...the
most miserable thing was there was not even a single girl (good-looking) visible anywhere within 100m of that place (don’t consider the receptionist, she was ------)...

Scene--2 (Interview in progress)..

Manager: Hi I’m so and so blah blah...tell me something about ur educational background (he has my resume open showing that in detail)

Me: (don’t they have something better to ask)..Well i did my schooling here...i did my B.E in IT frm that college and I did my post-graduation in Finance frm such and such college that sums up my edu bckgrnd..

HRA: are u aware of the post for which u r here??

Me: (y else am i here dumbo!!) yes I’m.

Manager: y did u do M.B.A??

Me: (I had nothing else to do after my grads. I didn’t have a job either) I want to be an
entrepreneur that’s y (i wanted to kick myself for this!!! i don’t need MBA to be one. all i need is investment)

Manager: don’t u think u r overqualified for this job???

Me: (some say u r overqualified, while others say u need some experience. wat am i to say here) yes i know!!! (Very simple isn’t it)

Manager: well your resume is very impressive…please rush through it once!!

Me: (It should be impressive. Cos I copied it from a consultancy) I did my summer project in that organization and my final project in RISK MANAGEMENT…

HRA: What did you do in Risk Management??

Me: (I don’t know. I didn’t do my project yet) I analysed different mathematical models like GARCH, EGARCH etc. and found their efficiencies

HRA: Which model did you find more efficient?? Describe Ur project slightly in depth

Me: well I analysed them by taking a case of an organization blah blah…..(thank god I had friends in college who taught me how to spin good yarns. I’m grateful to u guys).

HRA: that’s great!!

Me: (this dumbo tells my project is gr8.what does he know about risk management and mathematical models?? Nothing, zook, zilch) thanks a lot

HRA: well that was great we’ll keep in touch soon. Thanks for coming.

Me: it’s a pleasure (to leave this room).

Me: lets hope I get a positive response.

To conclude in the next part..
