  • The Guru Within – III

    Time calls for the duty of every person to express his passion and ambitions of life. Sometimes, persons impersonate time and ask us to do that. Here my friend Arun Vaidyanathan, has asked me to elaborate on one of the stanza from “Moha mudgaram” written by Adi Shankara of Kaladi.

  • Neither male chauvinist nor a feminist

    I saw the movie 22 Female Kottayam here at Satyam Cinemas (Seasons), Chennai last night. Despite a Sunday night, the house was full.  There are lot more and expert movie reviews already out on the net about this film.

  • Why this Kolaveri on Kolaveri di?

    Everyone loves their own mother tongue. But that should never be a starting point of hatred towards another language. That is almost like loving your mother and hating your friend’s mother. After all, both are mothers. Only thing is the other one is not your mother. IMHO, Mother tongue is like our own mother. Because, […]
