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 people who play offence and offence alone. Even if they are wrong they come out fighting. My very first day at Anna University, one would think that your father would be proud that his son got into CEG, but no, not my father. He got irritated at the red tape at the school and gave me an ultimatum, he said, “I going through all this for you, if you ever get a single bad grade your ass would be on fire”. May be he didn’t say ass but something on that line. So as a son, I know what do expect from my Dad, to kick my ass and that alone. My kid, I guess gets confused when I bring Masala Movie techniques in real life. Don’t know what to do now, I should write a letter Rajnikanth and find out how he does it…Do you think he would answer?

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!!!
