Who else could represent Congress!!!

Getting Drunk

There is nothing like getting drunk on a Friday Night!!!!

Ignorance is bliss

I shouldn't have read "Road"!!! For someone who has a bad feeling about 2012, reading "Road" is just fuel to the fire. I don't think I will buy tickets to the movie... Maybe on DVD after December 2012!!!!

Epic Muhammad Movie –

I always dreamt about a Hollywood version of our Ramayana or Mahabharata. I sincerely believe that it could be a commercial success too. So I hear that a movie about Muhammad is on the pipeline with some big name on the roster. Why am I thrilled? Well since we Indians are good followers, now someone will propose a movie for Hindus...

H1N1

Doctors have recommended to get my son vaccinated against H1N1, on one hand I don't want to go against a Doctor's wish (Just look at my life) on the other I have deep concerns over a vaccine developed quickly. Now that I have received a phone call from the Doctor's office, got to make a decision (couple of hours)!!!

Happy Diwali

Happy Diwali. Guess I am little late....

For a few dollars more

Can't beleive that I have to go through this for a few dollar more....

You are a good man, Charlie Brown –

Ever wondered what happened to Charlie Brown? Well, he now lives under a pseudonym "Murali". And yes, still waiting for his first win.

Prophecy

Told people Del Potro is the man of the future, they didn't listen. Look where he is now...

Saravana Bhavan

Having a beer at Saravana Bhavan felt like doing something bad in a Temple.

Road Trip -

On a road trip covering Charlotte and Atlanta....

Badani -

Man, I was thrilled to see Badani getting a chance to play for Rajasthan, but what a tragedy, he didn't get a chance to play in a single Ranji match...Poor Guy, Sriram played as a Captain for Goa, and I think he did pretty good but Badani.....he just gets hit with bad luck one after another...

Masala Movies -

Every wonder what life would be if one where to mimic a Masala Movie? My life is like Rajnikanth Movie, a complete mix of comedy and action with sprinkles of tragedy. But unlike Rajnikanth, who flips his characters at ease, I couldn’t do it. People get confused, I don’t understand! People like masala movies, then why don’t they like my approach? My son for instance, I don’t discipline him for jumping on the bed or watching Spongebob, I normally join him, but when it is homework time I make sure that he doesn’t let his mind wander and do his job and job alone. For some reason he couldn’t take it, yesterday he made a journal entry on why he like Obama. The reason, Obama doesn’t force him or yell at him to do his homework. I don’t get it. He is not alone though, at work it’s the same story. Normally I joke around at work, just for that people expect me to pat on their back if they don’t deliver?

The conclusion, the world is not made for people like me; it’s for people like my father, for…

கருணாநிதி -

தெருவில் சுத்தும் நாய்குட தனக்கு சோறு போட்டவனை கொஞ்சம் மரியாதையா நடத்தும். கருணாநிதியை என்ன சொல்ல? உங்க பிள்ளையும், உங்க மக்களும், உங்கள் சாவை எதிர்பார்த்து இருப்பது, உங்கள் வழக்கை சரித்திரத்திற்கு ஒரு நல்ல எடுத்துகாட்டு!

கர்நாடகத்துடன், காவேரியை வைத்து ஹொகேனக்கல்லில் ஒரு நல்ல நாடகம் நடத்தி, தேர்தல் சமயத்தில் உங்களுக்கும், உங்கள் கட்சிக்கும் காங்கிரஸ் கட்சி தேவை என்று வந்தபின், "ஹொகேனக்கல்" அப்படின? என்று வடிவேலு மாதிரி கேள்வி கேட்ட பெரிய மனுஷன் நீங்கள்.

தேர்தல் நேரத்துல திடிருன்னு, இலங்கை தமிழ் மக்களுக்கு உண்ணாவிரதம் இருந்த நல்ல உள்ளம் உங்களுக்கு.

இப்ப முன்னடந்தது எல்லாம் சின்ன விஷயம் மாதிரி, உங்க கட்சிக்கும் காங்கிரசுக்கும் நிலைம நல்லா இல்ல, இதுக்கு BJP கட்சி தேவை. ஒரே வழி, திருவள்ளுவர் சிலை. மக்கா, எப்படி மக்கா!!! இன்னைக்கு கருணாநிதி இருப்பதற்கு ஒரே காரணம், தமிழ் மக்கள், அவங்களை இப்படி முதுகுல குத்துனா எப்படி?

Animal Kingdom

Yesterday, I conquered Mt. Everest. It was a great ride, I was so proud that my 7 year old made it through the ride.

I am amazed by the amount of work Disney has put to make sure the Indian Section in Animal Kingdom looks authentic. Yeti hotel, Old tractors (it looks like a bike), Telephone pole, rest rooms, and all take you back to India. It was really awesome. You know what’s even better, they brought old Cinema Poster from India and they are pasted all over the place. Illyaraja was there, apparently he was the music director for the film “Secret Agent Raja” and Nadhiya with a sexy smile asking you to buy “ஈகில் மார்க் பட்டாசுகள் ” I am impressed!!

Biggest Loser -

For me losing things is inborn. But yesterday was the worst. Lost my car keys, house keys, mail box key and I was left stranded on the street with 2 kids. One good thing though, when you have these habits, you don’t get agitated. You just laugh at yourself and think clearly. My mind naturally goes, "What next?". My wife freaks out though, then again that’s her problem…., ultimately it did become my problem because she forced me to change the lock which cost a whopping 120 dollars!!!

Riveting

DMK vs. Vikatan –

The phenomenal growth of Sun Network has forced Media (both print and broadcast) to work in alliance with the Network (read DMK). This was no difference for Vikatan. With their profitable Vikatan Talkies, who successfully run several Soap operas in Sun, I have never seen Vikatan write anything ill either in Junior or Ananda Vikatan. It looks like all these have changed after election. Lately there were several article criticizing Karunanidhi and his party members. While going after Minister Raja is one thing, which purely is a personal vendetta; criticizing Karunanidhi’s plan to turn his house into hospital for poor is bizarre. I do agree with Vikatan on this, but it bugs me why? Why now? I am not sure whether Maran and Stalin are behind this? Because from what I see they are no different but I see no article about them. The amount of money Maran family has plundered over the year is unbelievable, but still he has a clean image and the media never opens their mouth against him.

What e…

Jiddu –

Have you ever had a conversation with someone and half way through you feel that the other person is at a different level and wonder when it will end? For me reading and understanding Jiddu’s book feels that way. For example, one such concept by Jiddu, is about Fear. He wants us to differentiate our inbuilt fears (such as fear of snakes) from the ones which were built through environment (such as fear of losing your money, fear of death). Jiddu argues that we should calm our Self (Atman) and address these external fears, by which we will find out that these external fears never hold value and over time will vanish. He then preaches how expectation and fear go hand in hand and to be totally free of fear he argues that one should live his life in the present not over analyzing the past or the future.

Now, the trouble is applying these principles in real life. Here is one such scenario using my life as an example, which per Jiddu is unfounded and that I should snap out of it. I don’t ev…

Catch-22

At this point my life, I neither have the balls to walk out my job nor do I have any interest to work....

I am back -

For me Vacations were always stressful, mainly because I am paranoid about everything. But this time, it was not that bad. The only scary part was that I actually had some good time with my Dad!! Well I guess that's the sign of me getting old....

Sarkozy stands up for Women –

Whether people understand or not, I am behind Sarkozy speech on Burka. “The burka is not a sign of religion; it is a sign of subservience”, can’t be said better.

Happy Father's Day

What's my fathers day present? "Up" the Movie, in 3-D!!! What I don't understand with Disney is, why make a cartoon movie with sad theme. Nemo, Toy Story, WALL-E and now Up. Man, I am all chocked up!!!

Enge Brahmanan - Cho

A great novel by Cho. In his own way, Cho gives an excellent narrative on Hinduism and Caste System. A must read.

Torture

Roaming around 3 parks in Orlando with 3 Kids - Torture; Can't move my body!!!!

Good Times for Tamil Nadu –

Naming Stalin as deputy Chief Minister could be a blessing in disguise for Tamil Nadu. It is highly likely that the old crook won’t be around for the next election. Remember what happened when MGR passed away, each one had his/her own party within ADMK and they were lucky to come back as one unit. Stalin knows, that DMK faces a similar future. To come out on top he has to play his cards right. One such issue could be giving a corruption free government for the next 2 years or until we face election. So I would guess in addition, we would get some new roads, action on power cuts, new project for Chennai (I heard that he is already talking to Sheila Dikshit). Let’s see how it goes. But don’t get too cocky; it will be short lived…

Democracy Ahoy –

Central -
Nehru/Indira/Rajiv/Rahul
State -
Karunanidhi/Alzhagiri/Stalin/Kanimolzhi/Maran(B)/Maran(S)

Shouldn’t one be proud to see Democracy at work?

Err, Again -

India should shut up and let UN take its course on SriLankan situation; then again we have Congress, what else can we expect?

Tamil People -

மக்கள் - என்ன தலைவரே கொஞ்ச நாளைக்கு முன்னாடி உண்ணாவிரதம் எல்லாம் இருந்திங்க, இப்ப என்ன ஆச்சு?

தலைவர் - தமிழ் மக்களை விட முக்கியமான பிரிச்சனை இப்ப மக்களை தவிக்க வச்சிக்கிட்டு இருக்கு!!

மக்கள் - அது என்ன தலைவரே?

தலைவர் - என் பசங்க சென்ட்ரல் மினிஸ்ட்ரி சீட்!

No Mini Machi -

All the cheerleaders in IPL were wearing Miniskirt except for Chennai Super Kings. Apparently, Miniskirt is only allowed in Tamil Cinema.
I don't blame N. Srinivas for this, because I know Tamil Taliban (PMK) and other such organizations will be in street for screwing Tamil Culture.
I remember Anna University passing a law that girls can't wear Jeans, considering that this shouldn't be a surprise at all.

Dhoni "The Master" has done it -

Well folks, Dhoni "The Master" has done it for Chennai Superking, both with his batting and his captaincy. When the Kings were going great, he dropped in 1 down where Raina was playing so wonderful and screwed the run rate and the total score. With Captaincy, Gony is back do I have to say more? He has no idea about bowling and bowling change.... Pandey didn't have clue against Murali but he came in at 10th over by the time the game was over....Dhoni what a Worthless Cricketer....

What now for Srilankan Tamils -

If there was ever a time, when things went from bad to worse that's now for Sri Lanka. What happens now?

1. Election in Tamil Nadu proved that there is not much of a sympathy for Sri Lankan brethren. The worst is just beginning for them. Now that our
politicians have found out that there is no vote for Sri Lanakan Tamil support, who cares if they die.
2. Our Cine field; what a joke. Bhartiraja who is nothing but a third rated pimp was out to save them? He got no movie going; his son sucks; what else does
he have. Oh, that's right he can always fight for Sri Lanakan Tamil Justice.
3. Our Jaya; You never mess with Amma. Sri Lankan Tamils have just did that. People around Amma, has brain washed her saying that Sri Lanakan Tamil issue
will win her votes. Now that it didn't, the Tamils have to feel the wrath of Jaya.
4. Karuna, all he must be thinking now is, "Why the heck did I fast for 6 hours?".
5. Vaiko will be Vaiko. I don't think he will change or make any change…

End Game for BJP -

I am totally at shock with election results in India. Honestly, I now have serious doubt about BJP's future? It's highly unlikely that Advani will be leading the party next election, given that BJP has got no national leader!!! Words can't explain the pain I feel now.

DMK leading in Tamil Nadu? How the heck did that happen? I am happy that the caste based parties lost in Tamil Nadu though, except may be for Thiru Ma. PMK lost all its seat, I say good for the state....

Arundhati Roy –

What happens when you win “Booker Prize”, you become a social activist; silly!!

If you are an Indian, Booker Prize can arrive either by bashing about the social inequalities in India or by giving a view on how bad things are in India. For Arvind Adiga its White Tiger; the novel is nothing but a cheap road side book, but hey it talks about inequalities, it got to win!!!! For Kiran Desai its insurgency in India’s west, well it has the theme!!! Now, Naiupaul and Salman Rushdie are different, even though they both bash India, I feel they are true at heart. They write because they are at pain to see India crumbling.

Of all the writers, Arundhati Roy takes the cake. Now Ms. Arundhati Roy does not like anything Hinduism. For her it’s a joke; right now she is on a trip to Pakistan and selling her ideas such as, RSS infiltration in Indian Army, Social inequalities, and on what she thinks as terrorism. Ms. Roy's hatred towards a Hindu is nothing new, it came from her childhood. Ms. Arundh…

Chennai overcomes Dhoni - Wins!!

Nothing is comparable to Dhoni's captanicy. How the heck is he managing the Indian team is beyond me!!!

- Badri to open! Really, I think Dhoni is feeling that he could be a weak link in the Chennai 11!! He doesn't want to come in at 6 down so he is doing all he could to screw Badri who is a strong candidate for 2 down.

- Jakati and Tyagi were the best players in the team for the past 2 games, yet they bowled 4 overs between them? Why only Dhoni knows.

- Gony selection, really?

- Its amazing how in each match there are atleast 3 players who play no part in the game. Today Bailey was in the 11 and ?

- I like Balaji, but if he is best death bowler in the 11, then good luck.

End Game

Sri Lankan government is paving its way for a total annihilation. Of course they are helped by out inept Dravidian parties. How well do we use these poor souls to gain power? Jaya until the election day was against anything Tamils do in Sri Lankan, but now she is a savior. I have never seen anyone fasting for 6 hours, “Karunanidhi” if only this bastard has used 10 percent of the time he spent protecting his family and power, Lankan issue would have been solved long time ago.

Mahinda Rajapaksa action is nothing but ethnic cleansing. One has to agree that leaders like Hitler and Edi Amen survived mainly through people support, so I would assume that every if not most Sri Lankan support their leader’s action. But my friends, you will never win this war through killing others. Just look where Rwanda, Uganda, and Cambodia are now. China has given a blank check to Sri Lanka. China assumes that by supporting Sri Lanka they can check India's growth. Don't you think this is similar to…

Fake IPL Player

Last week, the web was set ablaze by a blogger who calls himself "Fake IPL Player". The blog had everything in it, Sex, Corruption, Movie Stars and of course Cricket. What else do you need to catch an Indian.

I do feel that IPL is getting out of hand. Modi's greed will bury this giant. Where the heck did Preeti gets money to run a IPL franchise. I wouldn't be surprised if Dawood is running it! BCCI better get their act right, if not they will go down along with ICC.

Dhoni

Chennai Super Kings (I still hate the name) lost there 2nd match due to bad Captaincy.

- Still sticking with Jogi. He bowls one over and comes 8th down; don’t know what his value is.
- There is a thin line which differentiates arrogance from confidence. Dhoni thinks he is good enough for 2 down, don’t know how he came up with that conclusion. Either he can open the batting or come 6 or 7th down.
- Badri should be 2nd down.
- Patel to open? Really, that’s the best they got?
- Real icing on the cake, Dhoni asking his bowler to learn from Delhi. Yeah right, that should go well with players like Murali, and Flintoff.

The match was lost due to his poor captaincy nothing else.

Going Tamil -

I made a bold resolution that this year I am going read as much Tamil Book as I could. The problem is getting Tamil Books in US. So after much search, I found Udumalai.com. Looks like a decent website. I ordered some books through the website and I even talked to the owner who was pretty helpful. Hope I get the books soon.

Here is my initial list of Tamil Books, Hopefully I could read them all.


1. Thayumanavan - Balakumaran
2. Aasaipadu - Jaki Vaudev
3. Mugathil thelitha saral - Iraiyanbu
4. Moha Mul by T.Janakiraman
5. En Charitram by Dr.U.V.Swaminatha Iyer
6. Ponniyin Selvan by Kalki
7. Sila Nerangalil Sila Manidharkal by Jayakanthan
8. Arthamulla Hindu Matham by Kannadasan
9. Palveedhi by Abdul Rahman
10. Unnal Mudiyum Tambi by Dr.M.S.Udayamoorthy
11. Ramayanam by Rajaji
12. JJ Sila Kurippukkal- Sundara Ramasamy
13. Ki Mu Ki Pi - Madan
14. Engay Brahmanan - Cho

Dhoni gets it wrong -

Chennai Super Kings lost their first match against Mumbai Indians. If they got beat by a better team, that's OK but the match was lost because of bad team selection.
1. R. Ashwin, selected as Spinner never bowled, Vidyut would have been a better bet.
2. Patel, I don't know what is Dhoni's fantasy with Patel. Vijay or Arun Kartik should have replaced Patel.
3. Thushara - Even though Thushara performed, it was a bad choice. They have so many wicket taking bowlers, Ntini, Morkel, Murali I couldn't understand the logic behind Thushara's selection.
4. Joginder - I understand that he is one of Dhoni's boys. But he is fading fast, should be replaced by Tyagi or Balaji.

Gun Control in US of A

Gun Control in America is a touchy (read Stupid) issue. In America the right to hold a firearm is protected under the second amendment of its Bill of Rights. While I am a proponent of individual rights, I don’t feel that “Right to bear a firearm” falls under the right’s of an individual. People are buying assault weapons under this senseless law which causes more harm then anything. Shootings in schools such as in Virginia, Texas and not to forget the Columbine massacre are all hushed away as something irrelevant. It looks like every week there is a shooting spree which results in multiple deaths. I was watching 60 minutes yesterday and they were showing a guy selling gun under a Nazi banner? While I appreciate his marketing skills (Basically using a marketing ploy that it’s Black Obama trying to control White (NRA) American) it just shows how stupid it is.

Majority of people in America think that if it’s in the Amendment then it has to be right! It’s more like people questioning evol…

திருக்கடையூரில் திராவிட கழகங்கள்

While it’s improper to judge a man when he is down, the same rule can’t be applied for Karunanidhi and his party men. A yellow shawl, a quick visit by Sai baba to bless him and his family were all shushed as irrelevant; now with his smart ass attitude Karunanidhi will again deem his wife’s visit to Thirukadaiyur as irrelevant. All his life he portrayed himself as a savior of Dravidians and synchronized the word Dravidians with someone who is an atheist, now his wife spends her time at temples to bless her husband with long life and prosperity. May be Karunanidhi will come up with a smart ass comment that it was his second wife and that, technically (since she is illegal) it doesn’t count…. I would like to quote something from Douglas MacArthur which describes this scoundrel better,

“Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years. People grow old by deserting their ideals. You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear;…

Debacle under Democracy –

Is Democracy working? It’s definitely not in Asian and South American countries where the ruling elite have successfully hijacked the idea and rule the state by corruption and terror. The west is not better either, in here Democracy is held up by economic prosperity and I do agree that educated masses do play a role. With just under a year of recession, America already organizes itself into major groups with each going after the government for its own benefit. This is exactly what happens in India, doesn’t it? In countries like India, where people have to work with limited resources, they go at it through flawed methods. Each form a group for his or her own liking, may it be the caste, state, language or what ever it is that could be grouped together. If you have your strength in number then you will get what you want. Once you have the power now it becomes necessary to suppress other groups from propping up. If you have achieved your power through corruption, what else will you use t…

Gandhi -

Even when we use the bath tissue we have a reason and purpose. The way Indians are treating Gandhi is a complete disgrace. See, I don’t agree with many things Gandhi said and followed but still I respect him more than anyone else. Indians are such a selfish breed that nothing matters when it comes to their personal need. The way this auction of Gandhi’s belonging was handled is a complete disaster. Gandhi lived his life for his principles; one such principle is “Satya”. Quoting Gandhi’s own words “Without truth nothing”. With that our beloved Indian Tourism and Culture Minister Ambika Soni comes out and says that she and her government helped Mallya to get Gandhi’s belonging. Now Mallya bluntly rejected her statement and said that he bought it on his own. When you lie to get cheap publicity on the very man who lived for truth shows you how sad the state of India is.

Not one person in India stood up and questioned Ambika Soni, because it doesn’t matter does it? Who cares about Gandhi? …

Bharat Matha Ki Jay –

Liquor man fights for Gandhi’s India and buys his personal belonging. Great. Gandhi would have loved it.

Hey “N” Ram

I was perplexed at reading the recent article by N. Ram, “The Hindu” Editor-in-chief regarding Tibet’s status under China. I do understand that Ram is a committed communist and that every individual has his right for expression (I wonder whether I can say the same under communist China). But for me it is hard to buy his view that Tibet is much better under Communist China rather than to be a sovereign nation. Mr. Ram puts forth couple of argument
1.Tibet has prospered under China
2.Tibet is secluded from China that it still holds its distinctiveness and that normal Chinese don’t want to move to Tibet.

Well, it looks like Mr. Ram has taken leaf from British imperialism. The British sincerely believed that by ruling countries like India and China they were doing a favor to natives. What Australian government has done for Aborigines and what the Canadian did to Indians in their land are similar to what Mr. Ram is proposing. Quoting economical prosperities successive government has kidnap…

Comedy Time

If you need a daily dose of "Comedy" then all you have to do is read Indian Newspaper. It feels as if for these Journalist college education is something alien. Even though they make me laugh, I am really saddened by the current state of Indian Newspaper.

Here is an example,
"இதில் திருட்டு பயத்தை நீக்கும் எளிதில் உடைக்க முடியாத கதவுகளை கொண்ட ஆன்டி-லாக் பிரேகிங் சிஸ்டம்"
How they merge anti lock breaking system with car doors? God only knows!!!

Yeah, and the Indian Government is screwing Srilankan Tamils... As I stated many times before, Dravidian parties are the worst that could have happened for Tamil Nadu.

Yes, They are from Pakistan

"Yes, the Terroist are from Paksitan" Pakistan interior ministry. Now what????

If you are a Hindu -

Couple of Statesman editors (Newspaper from Calcutta) Ravindra Kumar and Anand Sinha was arrested on charges of offending Islam. Muslims in Calcutta went up in arms demanding that they be punished. They republished an article for UK’s Independent daily entitled “Why should I respect these oppressive religions?” In the article the author Johann Hari writes
"I don't respect the idea that we should follow a 'Prophet' who at the age of 53 had sex with a nine-year old girl, and ordered the murder of whole villages of Jews because they wouldn't follow him."

This is where the hypocrisy in India (and that of the world) is at its best. For example, people like Periyar have walked the street with slipper garland on Lord Ram’s picture which was looked as a mark of a new beginning. Now a journalist publishes something (which by the way is not fictional) about Prophet and the entire world goes against them as if they were trying to defame Islam.

Everyone has their right…

Payback – Brahma Style

By now almost all Hindus know how the 2 main deities of Hinduism (Vishnu and Siva) have vanished Brahma from the main stream. I was looking at the work by Godfrey Higgins, who argues that Abraham and Brahma are one and the same. He adds how Abraham’s wife Sarah is similar to Brahma’s wife Sara-swati.

I know it was a bad idea to vanish Brahma from Hinduism, look what He has done. Revenge is sweet. He now has more followers then both put together!!!!

Ethics in India

May be the recent events in Satyam triggered me to write something about ethics in India, but I don’t buy this crap that Indian media and Indians (as a whole) try to sell. These morons argue that India a land of many messiahs was not at fault and that the actions by Ramalinga Raju are purely in the mind of one corrupt individual.

We Indians are one of the corrupt individuals in the world. We try to mask our actions under some fake righteousness within our religion. We try to mask our actions under some man made injustice in our land 100 or 200 years ago. We try to mask our actions with caste, poverty and other such BS.

Be it the driver license office, be it in the airport, and be it the auto drivers, we never hesitate to throw some extra dough to get what’s best for us. Recently, my family got an offer for our property, a whooping 70 percent in black money; where in the hell did they guy get this money? God only knows. All these are not corruption in our land; these are part and parc…

When Death defines Religion –

What is religion? What is our expectation from it? Do we follow religion to extend our life either through heaven or hell? Is our morality an action based on our afterlife?

Once a well learned man made it heaven. For his surprise, he saw his neighbor who led a sinful life right there with him. He rushed to God and questioned how his neighbor could earn a place in heaven on par with someone who led a perfect life just to reach heaven. God asked him what he wants Him to do.
