An Advice 4 Life...





I happened to read a small poem that was really very beautiful and got a copy of it.Though i dont remember where exactly did i read that i have a vague memory that i happened toland up reading this in "Wisdom" magazine (am really sorry that idont remember the exact edition of the magazine) .True to its name this poem taken from the book was a real wisdom.. to hone our wisdom:) Advice is aone thing every one hates to hear .. SO think about now the panes, windows and all such non living things advicing you.. What advice will they give us ???
here we go

"Tell me how to get on in life ",said the kettle
"Take panes",said the Window
"Never be led",said the pencil
"Do a driving business",said the hammer
"Aspire great things",said the nutmeg grater
"Make light of everything ",said the fire
"Never do any thing off-hand",said the glove
"Make much of small things ",said the microscope
"Try to make good impression",said the sealing wax
"Do the work we are suited for",said the chimney
"Find a good thing and stick to it" said the glue
"Be sharp",said the knife
"Reflect" ,said the mirror



This is that poem that was really "Reflecting" to us that even the smallest and the meanest creature /substance (well no one is mean) will be conveying a lot of ideas and also rules that can make life a better one.
Well hope it was a nice and lucid one to be shared.So any ways pls do read and post ur comments that are inevitable since i feel i have a long way to go reading and learning from what others(world )have to say .. (all good things)

I hope that we get to learn , relearn and unlearn in this learning process called life !

Day 57: Manjadikuru (The Little Red Seeds)

Do you guys know about Manjadikuru ? They are the little red seeds. For anyone who is from God's own country or is familiar with Kerala wouldn't have missed this. There is something special about holding them, playing with these seeds. Usually, most homes will have a small 'uruli' or a bowl filled with these beautiful and shiny red seeds. In most Krishna temples in Kerala, you will come across a small 'uruli' with Manjadikuru. People believe that it is lucky to take these seeds with both hands and just play with them when you visit a temple. Some even leave a couple of coins as they do this.  In Guruvayoor (my favorite place), you can see a big 'uruli' with manjadi. 

So, why and how did this become prevalent ? It goes back to a story from the past. Many years ago, there lived a poor lady in northern Kerala. She was an ardent devotee of Lord Guruvayoorappan (Krishna) and always wanted to visit Guruvayoor.  She could not afford to buy any offering (nived…

Day 207: Malayalam Movie Dialogues: Nadodikkattu "Ethra manoharamaya"

Dasan and Vijayan team is one of the most popular character pair in Malayalam movie fraternity. Every Malayalee will remember the dialogues from these movies. The pair of Lal-Sreenivasan as Dasan - Vijayan just brought (and still bring) smiles and simple joy among movie goers. Between Sathyan Anthikkad and Priyadarshan, there were three movies directed using the same team for the lead pair. With the script written by Sreenivasan himself, these movies have become immortal in the history of Malayalam cinema.
Among the set of 3 movies done using the combination, the first one was 'Nadodikkattu'. The picture that depicts the dialogue is from that movie. The second and third were 'Pattanapravesham' and 'Akkare Akkare Akkare'. Even though each movie was good this one is something very special. The dialogues are so popular that I don't think any of us would 'not' use them in everyday life. 
This one given below is by Vijayan (played by Sreenivasan) that s…

Day 210: Malayalam Movie Dialogues: Diamond Necklace "Arunetta"

Time for a recent movie context. This is one of my new favorite actor- Anushree. This scene is from a movie called Diamond Necklace. It is not a comedy movie but this specific actor's character does bring in innocence and sweetness that will make you smile. Why do I like her? Well, she has a beautiful knack to enact serious, comedy, strong roles with ease. She came into movies through a reality show and trust me she is a real find. This is her first one and she plays a small role as the protagonist's innocent wife. The innocence of 'Rajashree' just won so many hearts. 
The dialogue reads "Ende Arunettane manasilkkan ini vere aara ullathu" means "Now, who else is there to understand my Arun":) For those who understand the context you can smile, the rest, please go and watch this one :)
