Verbal Diamonds or Verbal Diarrhea

End of 2012 may be the worst ending of an year in last 50 years for India as a nation, giving exception to the Indian Ocean Tsunami year. A brutal rape, which has shaken the mind of the nation. A 23 year old girl who is entitled to roam free in her own nation, was put behind criticism despite being raped by 5 adults and 1 minor. What a pity state of the nation!

I try to jot down a few quotes given by our Netas in recent times, all at one place so that we know who we have elected.

Fancy dress memories!

I remember once when Sangeeth was studying in 3rd standard, he wanted to participate in a fancy dress competition. We decided to dress him like an Andamanese tribal man.

Mugamoodi (The Mask)

Mysskin, as a promising director in Kollywood, has his own style of telling stories. This time over, he has tried a different trade by moving out of the sex rackets, the abduction gangs, street fighters and all his usual stuffs. Till date, Mysskin is considered to be as an art director by who the viewers will be happy and the producers will not be. All his movies are critically acclaimed but bombarded at box offices. Nandalala was the last one to flop, miserably. And Nandalala was the only movie which Mysskin gave some pre-release promos. All his effort for Nandalala was almost in vain as it was not appreciated neither critically nor commercially.

Usual comments (a.k.a complaints) people say about Mysskin’s movies are they are too realistic, they are violent, Does these things really happen in Chennai!!? etc… May be because of this over realism, he has moved to a bit of fantacy-super human-type oriented story this time!!

Billa 2 – Roller coaster ride

Billa 2, a much awaited movie of the year 2012 hit the screens at last. I too got a chance to watch this movie, though only on the second day. As I was pretty positive about the movie after watching the teasers, I decided to watch the movie in Trivandrum itself instead of in Chennai.

Exonerating Ramayana from prejudice

As all we learned from the elementary school, Rama killed Ravana, there are some behind the scene events, which are cleverly and deliberately forgotten, just for the sake of making Ravana a negative character. As I told in my previous post, Ramayana is an epic. Hence, it answers you any question raised about the story. A simple question(!) :

Who is the father of Sita?

Retired – Hurt

19-May-2012

“I just now came back from Nagalapuram one day ‘Relax Trek’. One good thing is, I have decided I will never go there again. And that is the bad thing as well.

Reason is simple- I have seen Nagalapuram Forests 47 times including this. I have seen her as the most beautiful place, in every season, in every mood, in all its glory. But, private trekking parties are ruining the place like any other Indian tourist place. No matter how many ever times Chennai Trekking Club or me sweep it through out, next time when we go there, it becomes worse.

I have all those fond memories. I am happy with that.”

Oh Father, forgive them for they have sinned

 

I am thinking out loud how the politicians in Tamilnadu (or in any other state) spoil the normal life of people for their own material interests. See the below image; This was published in one of the leading national news caterer (a.k.a TOI-let paper), dated 16-05-2012.
