The Experience...


Boarding the train from Chennai I made myself comfortable. And the ticket checker came and started checking the tickets. He being a smart young man checked the tickets in a jiff. I just had my ticket on mobile. He didn’t get the mobile from me to verify the ticket. Just had my ID and note it down. I thought its okay….I hadn’t guessed at that time that I have to open my message inbox at least four times during the journey.
He left the compartment. After sometime he came and started counting the heads as conductors do in route buses. He then left. Again he did the same thing with checking the tickets here and there. This happens for the fifth time. Some passengers enquired him what is the matter. He didn’t answer, but smiled shyly.
After 10 minutes he returned with another black coat TTE, a senior one this time. That person started checking and this chap moved here and there with some thinking. After the senior finished almost three fourths of the bogi he rushed to him a…

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…

Women and The FaceBook

Image
Facebook is like jail, you sit around and waste time, write on walls, and get poked by people you dont know.I’m not addicted to Facebook i just have an addiction to Facebook.

You can do anything, but not everything.


Have you ever noticed that “lol” looks like a drowning man?
 I don’t think he was laughing out loud..


     We, the independent women of this century have no true friendship in real and virtual world. In our culture-torn India, the women folks are allowed to be independent, but to be dependent....confusing, isn't it?...but its true...Women know the secret of this independent cum dependent family values and how to abide, avert or act according to the situations. And so we survive in the real, reel and virtual world with little tampering. 

      Real world demands the physical as well as our mental stability. I dont know much about the reel world, as i am not in it. But heard that it needs more Horlicks than Boost...Coming to the virtual world, there is enough comedy to a hear…

Revolution 2020

Chetan Bhagat







Chetan Bhagat's  Revolution 2020 is a good attempt of bringing the society's corrupted lives, the nuances of the spirituality town Varanasi, touches AIEEE, JEE exams a bit, deals the love triangle going between three childhood friends, their attempts to succeed in lives, one being buckles to our corrupted system, other being stand straight and the third being the girl who torn between the boys. Book deals the intrications of love, lust, money, property deals and all that.....  


Gopal, a non-succeeder in AIEEE and JEE exams, opened an Engineering college in his disputed land with the help of a scammed politician. He believes in going through our corrupted system and got into the luxuries of life at an early age.
Raghav, an aspirant engineer from BHU, takes out to streets as his passion is journalism to make straight the corrupted system starting from the small town of Varanasi.
Aarti, the girl who caught between these two friends, shuttles through lov…

A Honour To Thiruvalluvar








             Thiruvalluvar, the classical tamil poet who penned down 1330 verses of Thirukural in 133 chapters. The monument for this great poet stands in Nungambakkam, Chennai as Valluvarkottam.


              It stands tall with a 127ft high temple chariot resembling Tiruvarur temple chariot, an auditorium which accommodate around 4000 people and inscriptions from Thirukural on granite stones erected in the mezzanine floor of the structure. The memorial is built using more than 3000 blocks of stone. 
             Valluvarkottam is architected by Ganapathi Sthapati  and personally constructed under the supervision of the then Chief Minister Karunanidhi. The memorial was opened on 1976 by the then President of India Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed and presided by the Governor K K Shah.


             Its almost kept clean except the smell in the corners proved that we are real Indians.
