Love for Birds

    
       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.
         I love to have them as pets. So I had parrots as pets and now love birds. The campus in which I am residing in Kovaipudur, is fairytale forest dancing trees and singing birds. One can find mynahs, cuckoos (kuyil), blue-tailed bee-eaters, woodpeckers, little grebes, red-throated fly catcher, grey wagtail and so many. But a sad thing - no sparrows. Herons - grey, purple, reef , Egrets - great, intermediate , Pelicans, Painted Storks all these resident and migratory birds can be seen in the lake near Sundakkamuthur. Now after many years I feel lucky to stay in nature.

And Our Indian Women


Word of Thanks I am so thankful for my agonized women friends who asked and helped me in writing this article. I believe this would certainly helps our women to balance in the social network to some extent.



Indian Women
Indian women, had a definite pattern of living and a very stringent culture of not being out with other men after they got married, whether they are educated or an earning member. For the past one decade, we had seen change in behavioral pattern of our college girls, influenced by the western culture. They love, like or lie down and go well with any other person on earth. The social sites trap these girls into this current, that they are not able to adjust with their partners after the nuptial knot. They compare their men with the other male friends in their network. Many marriages end well in the court. 

If these are all known facts, what is the necessity for writing this article?....Leaving young girls, we beckon the women in their 40s and 50s to defi…

Moms never quit..

Long Skirts



Little things do magic Lilies and chrysanthemums Fold mountains and Hay meadow Shearing wind whistles around lonely boat Dashing clean water murmurs along the shore But the old woman in her hood Is yet to sing the tranquilizing dream  That bloom with love and life
Whatever happens,  Moms never quit to say  Girls should wear long skirts   Then the children  Never fail to follow the Pied Piper
