Love for Birds

Image
       Birds with their flamboyant colors, mimicking voice and curious looks attract me a lot from my school days. For school, I have to walk through Omanthoorar Govt.Estate, Chennai ( where the new Secretariat, Rajaji Hall are present) from my house in Wallajah Road to school in Chintatripet. After school I have to go to my dance class which was also inside this estate. I loved the natural surrounding of the estate. Not now...recently I went to Chennai where I happened to see the new secretariat...nice eco-friendly building...but I missed the smell of the nature.




        On those days, I listened to the chirping of birds, the flapping and swishing sound  of wings while they fly here and there. I love them so much that I thought of studying ornithology and to become a bird watcher like Salim Ali. But my dream flopped when my father put me in Engineering. Then what? Each and every time I happened to pass a tree-lined road or street, I simply look for birds.

A Movie with a logic

Chasing Amy




Recently I saw this movie, which is a 1997 release, directed by Kevin Smith. It won two awards also. It tells the relationship between three - two friends and a lesbian girl. For the story line, read this : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chasing_Amy               Film moves very smoothly.

              So what about the worst part of the movie?  The dialect, more of sociolect, belongs to low social class I think. So many hit words...subtitles run with many more asterisks. Its a turn down point of the movie, makes it a C grade one. Coming to the part of stars, Ben Affleck nice and so striking to watch acts out the role well, but  Adams giggles too girlishly in the first(lesbian) part of the movie and then sudde…

Coimbatore Nilgiris supermarket

                    Basically I like window shopping and some real shopping. Not a  shopaholic. You don't have to purchase that much to empty your purse. But do some shopping... get vegetables, fruits, and apparels, at least once a week in supermarket or malls. It will refresh your mind and spirit. Do some walking to shop. Will do some good for your health. Seeing new varieties of things in the malls will make you knowledgeable in that arena.                    Women always have some urge to get the new stuff they see. They take the wanted and unwanted things and make their home a trash can. Remember Gautama Buddha. I am a great fan of him. Have in mind what he taught and preached -   People live in a sea of suffering because of ignorance and greed. They are ignorant of the law of karma and are greedy for the wrong kind of pleasures. They do things that are harmful to their bodies and peace of mind, so they can not be satisfied or enjoy life.  "There is happiness in life, happi…
