சுட்டெரிக்கும் வெயில் ;
சண்டையிட்டு எடுத்த நான்கு குடம் நீர் ;
ஒரு வாரமாய் துவைக்காத துணி ;

வடாம் போடுகையில்
அனிச்சையாய் வேண்டும் பாவி மனம் -
கடவுளே, இன்னைக்கு மழை வரக்கூடாது!

Song of Life!!

I sat all night long
Thinking what is wrong.
I don't know where I belong
All I do is sing a song !

When I am in anger -
My life beholds danger.
When I am in pride - I know
Satan takes me for a ride !

The moment I become jealous
I am sure life isn't fabulous.
The moment I am in fear
All things around ain't clear !

And to God I pray -
Don't let me be a prey to the evil !
I don't know where I belong
All I do is sing a song !

புலவரே தெரியுமா??

Was thinking about what to write and all of a sudden remembered this favourite puzzle of mine[When I was in school, I would have asked this to each and every person I came across.. :)]My 8th Std class teacher told us this,as we were all eagerly awaiting for the last assembly of that academic year before we started for the summer vacation.

ஒரு ஊர்ல இரண்டு புலவர் இருந்தாங்களாம்.(இரண்டே புலவர் தானா ? - அப்படினு எல்லாம் கேள்வி கேக்க கூடாது. எங்க miss சொன்ன மாதிரியே நானும் சொல்றேன்.)

ஒருத்தருக்கு இன்னொருத்தரோட கால வாரி விடறதுனா ரொம்ப பிடிக்குமாம்..
ஒரு நாள் புலவர் No.1 , புலவர் No.2 கிட்ட போய்

முக்காலை கையில் எடுத்து
மூவிரண்டு போகையிலே
இக்காலில் ஐந்து தலை நாகம் ஒன்று
அழுந்தக் கடித்ததுவே ! - அப்படினு சொல்லிட்டு,இதுக்கு ஏதாவது வைத்தியம் சீக்கிரமா சொல்லுங்க-னு சொன்னாராம்.

அதுக்கு புலவர் No.2 சளைக்காம,

பத்து ரதன் புத்திரனின்
மித்திரனின் சத்ருவின்
பத்தினியின் கால் வாங்கி தேய் ! -அப்படினு சொல்றாராம்..

இரண்டு புலவரும் என்ன பேசிக்கிட்டாங்கனு அவங்களுக்கு புரிஞ்சிருச்சு..
உங்களுக்கு புரிஞ்சுதா?
உங்களுக்கு புரிஞ்சா எனக்கும் சொல்லுங்க.. :)

As was the day, so is the life..

There are these marked days in our calendar, when you would feel the day had just started, but soon there will be this friend of ours stepping by our cube to say 'see you for the day' in the evening and you wouldn't still know what you had been doing the whole day.. Today was one such for me.. That isn't really a problem until you are sent 3 reminders a day to fill the time sheets for the week!
I don't have much work to do this week (or atleast I convinced myself to think so), as the release is getting ready to be flagged off soon and its going smoother than expected.(Thats when I get more doubtful about it!!)

Have been listening to some of my 'all time favourites' in the week end.I have been listening to this one, umpteen times beginning last fri. Dunno what, but something has been very captivating in this song and this is one in that favourite list.

Listen to it here..

p.s: Still wondering y was the post titled so? Give it a thought and you will find it easily. :)

Daylight saving ends..

It was halloween today.The climate was too good - It was sunny and windy too. Was wonderful to watch the leaves falling from the trees. The room I am in, gives a nice view of the lake nearby. The tree I photographed in the morning with those beautiful colored leaves, stands with barely few leaves left now. It has been great all along until now, to watch the fall season. The leaves change colors slowly and it turns out to be a nice blend of colors as a whole. One will never be able to stop thinking about God's wonderful creations at times like this. The Fall will have to take a back seat as the snow season would be in by Nov end. Life's going to be tougher then, for this South Indian who has never seen temperatures drop down below 12 or 15 deg C at the minimum (That too while in Kodai or Ooty). :)
The daylight saving time ended today and felt like this sunday was the longest of all sundays in my life. I don't know if that one hour of daylight saving time adjustment made it seem so.
