A Ray of Hope


How hard is to fore-go a relationship and make a new one? I am talking here about the so called soulmate, life partner, better half and any other word u find similar to it. Is it as easy as changing your dress or your irritating job? Or is it as hard as facing the demise of a long lasted relationship? Even in death, we forego a relationship. When the heart beat stops in medical terms, u break up all the bonds with that human being. He/She is no more a living one. You know clearly that that person is not going to come back to your life anymore. How hard you try, how much effort the whole world puts together, no never, the life can't come back. The memories of them alone remain with you forever without haunting you.

But its not the same thing when u break a relationship with a loved one. How should it be taken to heart if the person opposite you cannot be touched and or you have no rights/limits to be in his/her premises. Can the situation be handled so easily? Or there books to teach us the way to act in such kind of environments? Do people earlier who had passed such phases have left clear advises for us?. I am sure that such things even if they exist cannot make up for the pain and gloomy feeling left around us.

The aftermath of a lost relation, the truth and love proved wrong yet again by life makes u lose the confidence level on any decision you take in future. A slight doubt or a hesitation and an uncertainity prevails with your decisions. When will you overcome from all this? Life will be no longer the same one as before. But yes it will be different and a new one. Not only the beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, but also your world. The way we try to cope up with the world without our dear ones pulled away from us for eternity, so do we need to try to live even after the deceiving relations also. The ray of hope can never stop shining upon us unless we hide from it.

விண்ணைத் தாண்டி வருவாயா [ Will you cross the skies for me?]


This is the first time in my blog that I am writing about a tamil/telugu movie I saw recently. The post has spoilers about the movie. So readers plz continue at your own will. I have been waiting to watch this much-hyped movie since very long time and the wait did not go fruitless. After hearing to the story scene by scene from my mom, I happened to watch the movie only in my computer. [ :( the movie didnot release in Tamil in Hyderabad and I have the least intention of watching the same in Telugu].

Karthik{can someone plz tell me the magic in this name}[Simbu], an engineering graduate who is interested more in movies and aspires to become a film - maker. Jessi[Trisha], born Malayali, a MCA graduate, software engineer by profession, elder than Karthik, confused at heart just crosses by Karthik. That moment was enough for the guy to fall in love with her. Is it really really true that a guy can fall in love in a second?????? Karthik and his family are the new tenants in Jessi's home. He proposes to her saying the usual Gautam Menon's dialogues "I am crazy about you blah blah blah" very soon on a day when they were casually talking. The much surprised rather than excited Jessi starts the relationship with a big NO. Her words are always oxymorons. How can she start a relationship with a NO! If it is a NO, dont u think its an end. No, its not an end but the start. She likes Karthik but she doesnot want him to love her. She allows him to come near her even to the verge of having a smooch, but then she says its all wrong. She wants Karthik to be a friend and be with her always, but not marry him for the fear of her father. She is not given the right to decide in her life, whom to marry, but she has the courage to walk down the altar on the day of her marriage, saying she is not yet ready to tie the knot. After this, Jessie comes out for a date with Karthik to a coffeeshop coz she felt so doing like that but she is not ready to confront her dad supporting his love. Gautam has not taken the least effort to justify Jessie's character. When Karthik points out Jessie's faults of why is she behaving like that -- neither loving him nor going away from him, she just walks away from him with no explanation. By ignoring him and walking away from him without giving any explanations, she expresses her inability and weakness. She is not ready to take a chance in her life, since she clearly know that its not going to happen. Then why the hell did she tell him that she too like him? Its true that she like him, but no guts to express her feelings and stand by her words. So Jessie in the first place should never have fallen in love. Is it?? Even after saying initially YES to Karthik's love, Jessie finally break up with him and move away from him. Leave out the skies, she is not even ready to cross her parents to come for him. விண்ணைத் தாண்டி அவள் வரவில்லை.


Of all the women in the world, why did Karthik loves Jessie? Of all the happy ending love stories, why did I like this sad climaxed movie? I dont know to put in words the exact reason, why I liked this movie. May be because, I have seen myself in Jessie's words and in her life many a times in the movie. Also, I can relate the movie to so many real life stories known to me. Its so real that today's women want to fell in love, but could not keep up to it for so many reasons. I know guys out there would curse Jessie for breaking Karthik's heart and curse me also for backing up Jessie's acts and liking this heart broken love story. There was an instance when Jessie ask Karthik --- "why did u come to my life? If not you, I would never have had this troubles". Yes, if not Karthik, Jessie's life would have been smooth. Is it so?

Love & Romance cannot be shown more poetically than this romantic director - Gautam Vasudev Menon, and that too with Rahman's melody, any one can enjoy the sequence of shots and songs. I would say that Trisha and Simbu had done 80% justice to the characters. But I am bound to say this, that the dialogue delivery by Karthik is pathetic. I feel the same expression in his words for all the emotions. Chinmayee's voice is fresh, superb and soft but for Trisha, it didn't suit that well. I am used to Trisha's old voice. In the end, altogether I am happy to know that Tamil people{plz include me also} enjoyed the sad climax rather than being so dramatic as in the land I am staying.

You realise you are grown up...........

  • On your birthday seeing the number of candles on ur cake.
  • When someone asks your year of birth though it is considered indecent to ask someone their age especially to women.
  • Sometimes when you will be addressed as Madam with so much respect in places where u might not expect.
  • At times when you are expected to hide your tears since crying often is always accepted as kiddish.
  • When a school kid calls you aunty in local transport or in public places.
  • You dont need someone to accompany you to a movie theatre.
  • Also when you will be left all alone at home with the belief that you can stay and take care of the house and urself with no one around.
  • Occasions where you are capable to cook for the whole family and even your grandma appreciates the taste of food.
  • You no longer belong to the gang of KIDS, TEENAGERS or ADOLESCENTS.
  • When your cousin phone up and discuss with you his future plans/ ask you suggestions based on ur experience.
  • On the road when the traffic policeman ask your licence to check if you are eligible to drive (>18 yrs).
  • You say to your mom confidently that YOU know what/when/how you are doing things, be it any decision you take --- either small / big and she accepts that :).
  • The sense of responsiblity increases for the house hold chores and you never/cannot depend on others for things to happen.

Memories to Cherish ---- Part III

Got to get familiarised with the Holi Festival on the first year of my college. The juniors/freshers in our hostel were put up in a separate block so that we dont get ragged by our seniors at night too :) It was pretty new hostel and we had rooms with lockable cupboards. That was one thing our seniors envied upon us those days since the old hostel didn't have them. Coming to the colour festival, the first and the only Holi I celebrated was that on my first year of graduation. Students from many parts of India study together and hence we celebrate almost all festivals with so much enthusisam. Every festival we start playing from 12 midnight. We stay awake till 2 -3 and really disturb others in the hostel. I feel so sorry for those who were disturbed by us in those days. We had access to very few colours but to large amount of water. I remember that since we didnot have any colours, we had used some sketch pens and got some coloured water out of it. How silly of us to do all that stuff? It was definitely a great time. The whole night we were splashing water on each other and dragging people from their rooms and making them wet. But at the end, all the hungama got silenced when our warden came out and gave a growl. By that time, we had almost finished the water in the all the blocks of the hostel. I am sure that we had the least thought of saving water that day.



After that day, I had no chance of playing with colours for 2 reasons. Firstly we Tamilians, never celebrate that festival, Secondly, I am a bit scared of the multi-coloured faces. Whenever I had to travel outside on the day of Holi, I go out with so much caution and fear in my heart. I had heard some awful news of injury and accidents on Holi days where unknown people tease others taking the name of colours. The fairer sex is always the weakest and the most targeted. Festivals are meant to bring people together. Let us vow each other to make them more meaningful and more enjoyable rather than hurting others' feelings.
