Hi.......

I am back after quiet a long time really .I was held up here because of exams.I thought of waiting for some more time till i take up my paper in Finance but then was not able to resist at all...adhaan i have come to write something at least ..
Well was thinking as to what shuld i write abt ...lots of options to pour out my thoughts on ...So i finally decided to give out all my feelings on those "silly mistakes" that i have done in my exams !!! Some one said from within .... "hey hey! Mistakes dhaane then where from is it silly ??? Yes how very true it is i thought for people to do a mmistake ... and then grade them accordingly .. A mistake is a mistake no matter how silly it is or grave ..Mistakes once done will cost u 4 ever ..most often... i guess it will be the silly mistakes that will be even more costlier . But we need to learn coming out of that never sit and thinkabout how and why we did it and think as " if at all i had known that " .... Mistakes are a part of life but it is that part that we should never repeat at all.In this so called journey of life .. we see so many stations and some finally are the "turning points " and i sometimes wonder that they basically will b because of those silly mistakes we committed .It is like in the school of life ... we can never finish our education of becoming a better human(e) .It continues .. and so does i guess my exam is going to cos we got the announcemnt that the exam that i sto be held on May 18th is postponed to June 2nd .. so my battle date is rescheduled too !!!

Day 307: Happy Chingam !

Today is Chingam 1 (to be read as onnu). It is the new month according to the lunisolar calendar. This month is also called as Avani and Shravana. So, why is this month special?  This month marks the beginning of the festival season back home and the it is fun to have small celebrations through the months until  mid- December. It is also the month of Onam (Harvest festival in Kerala).

The first festival we have this month is the 'sacred thread' changing ceremony for men/boys who wear that. This is followed by usually the birthday of little Krishna and then the elephant-head god, Ganesha. Then comes Onam followed by the beautiful month of Navaratri or Durga Pooja. So, the big set of festival season is here and here is a wish to all of you on Chingam 1. Wishing you all blessed and excellent months ahead. Have fun!

Day 315 : What's on your bucket list?

Bucket List. A term that has become popular much after the famous movie with the same title in 2007. The term would have probably taken after the euphemism 'kick the bucket', which was again popularized in the movie, 'It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world'. The 2007 movie was a massive hit and how would it be not? It had Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman in the lead. The term was meant to have a list of things you wish you can do before you leave this world.

It is like a goal list that can evolve as you grow and change perspectives in life. I used to have a wish list that worked as a to-do list mostly like a work list for short-term goals. However, off late, I have decided to make one and keep it as an ever evolving list.

The first one on my list as of now (that was from the past too) is to get my biggest degree in life. Hopefully I will tick that one off my list soon.

Do share your thoughts on your list and how do you plan on getting it all checked out.

Love,
M

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…
