Aankhon Mein...

Reactions: 
Random Youtube browsings can lead to stumbling on old forgotten songs and some of those songs are so connected to certain times in life that you go back to it pronto! Here's such a song:


This song was a craze among my friends during school (7th or 8th). I remember us dancing to this song and all others (Falguni Pathak anyone?) at a friend's place and collapsing into laughter (bringing aunty to see what the hell we were upto). Then, love was something funny that we saw only in movies and M&B books. And, we were more interested in the short stories that each of these album songs portrayed than the songs themselves. Album songs were new to our group then and totally different from the movie songs or the english singles. Now, as I think back, every one in our group has moved to different places, are in different jobs and doing different things. But those memories are still so fresh and good... Here's to school life and all the friends and the happy memories made there!

PS: Shahid still looks kind of cute... not the handsome hunk way, but more the guy-next-door way. This song to Jab we met is a good transition. Lets see how it turns out all the way!

Paapom!!

Reactions: 
[This is a parallel to the last post on Pattu and Kittu]

Pattu and Kittu were friends in Cheppur. They did most things together. Here is a leaf out of their life book.
[A few years back]
Kittu: Pattu, namma naalaikku hike porom.
Pattu: Oh ok! Apdiye night dinner poitu varalaama?
Kittu: Paapom! Tiredaa illana polaam.
Pattu: Seri ok!

Kittu: Ok!
Pattu: I'll call X,Y as well. Avangalukkum ticket kedaikumla?
Kittu: Paapom! First nammakku ticket irukaanu ketkaren. Irundha avangalukkum ketpom.

[A year later]
Kittu: Pattu! Padam porom
Pattu: Oh ok! Enna movie?
Kittu: Iron Man
Pattu: Oh... next week, Avatar polama? Nee free thaane?
Kittu: Paapom!
Pattu: En paapom solra? Seri polaamnu decide panna, innaiku padam porachave andha ticketum vaangalaamla? One trip save aagumla?
Kittu: Paapomna paapomnu thaane solla mudiyum?
Pattu: Adhukaaga adhe vaarthaiyaa?

[A week after that]
Pattu: Kittu! Concert polama?
Kittu: Paapom! 
Pattu: Vera vaarthaiyae unakku theriyaatha? Ini paapomnu sonnanaa paaru!
Ippo sollu, concert polaama?

Kittu: Sonnalum sollatiyum naan Sujathakku chithappa payyan thaan. Yes! En periappa ponnu peru Sujatha. He he!
Pattu: Kadavulae! Naan sonnathu writer Sujatha. Un P.P Sujatha illa.

Pattu: Chanceae illa. Eppovum indha Pattuku andha nelamai varaathu (Oru Neelambari look)

[A few years later]
Pattu: Namma innaiku padam polaam

Pattu: Enna paapom, paakalanu? 
Pattu's hubby: Acho! vela mudinja polaamnu mean pannenma.
Pattu: Adhilla! En ellarum idhe word solreenga [and thunks herself]

[A few years after that]
Pattu: Namma innaiku park pogalaam
Pintu (Pattu's kid): Paapom ma!
Pattu: !!!

[In the end, we see Pattu singing "Andha naal nyabagam vandhadhe nenjile... "]

Life, the next time

Reactions: 
Heard about this question from a few friends recently: What do you want to be in the next birth? An interesting thing to think about but totally against my decision to plan less. Here, I decide not to plan anything and then pops a question to plan about next life :P Talk about Nature's sense of humor!!

Anyways, assuming the same technology growth chart as it has been in the past few years and wanting to do something I cannot do now, I came up with different pieces of next-life puzzle. Right now, I know that I want to work with dreams in my next life: the type where you dream and that is your job... all you have to do is sleep and dream and sleep and dream :D Ah! Bliss!

PS: I'll update this question as and when other pieces fall into place.About the job, I sure am taking enough training already in this birth! So shouldn't be hard at all :)

A look at the new year!

Reactions: 
After the new year's eve partying and wishing settled down, there came a moment where I realized that this is the start of a new year, a new decade, all waiting for us to put our stamps on it and make memories out of it. It is like the fresh pristine snow with no footprints or marks on it. 

This year would be more a capture-and-go year. So, no resolutions to keep, no to-do lists, no must-finish stuff and definitely no must-experience stuff! For my resolution minded friends, I do have two but they are a secret and do not carry the pressure of resolutions - I've worded them 'nice to do stuff' - they really are nice to do but I can comfortably live without doing them. Also, I have a few things that 'can be done' but again, I can live with not doing them. It would definitely be a big change from my planned life. I plan to leave all the planning to others and if any planning HAS to be done by me, I'm going to do it fly-by-the-pants style. Should be interesting to see how that pans out! 

Lets make sure that this new year and decade see the best of us. Let us grow with time, with hope in our hearts and a song in our lips, with life a rainbow of colors and a gleeful mix of experiences. I'm excited about the journey to come, aren't you?
