The colours ........ of life!

Meeting a new person in every walk of our life; each one painting a new hue on the canvas of our life ; be it in any colour they do add on to what we are in life!But then certain colours do stand out from the rest as something really special and really real that they do not wash out from the canvas of our life .Even after long years time does seem too short to make us forget them ..... Life after all these turns have rolled by and i do still have some cherishable moments that are painted in gold ......... Oops !!! i would prefer a platinum since i love that and i prefer that for gold !!!on my canvas .So now eleven long years after i left my place i mean my school at trivandrum .. despite "zero communication or networking "but with just my own sweet memories i do still feel the freshness even today ...... After 11 long years i have been able to trace out a few old buddies of mine and also my teacher .Thanks to the virtual world and the net ! that iw as able to trace them out . But you know what people do change a lot in many years yes some for good some for worse. I have been really happy to have found a few of my good buddies and i am really surprised that a few havent even changed at all. Technology is no less a saviour to people like me since this is what bonds me stronger with my good old friends. I am really very happy having met my friends but now the question are they equally enthsiastic about that ? .Yes a nice question that even i ponder about and at times still do .. but then one of them has proved me really wrong . He is still the same kind of person as he used to be some decade ago.A very Voluble guy he is a waggish kind of guy who can easily please people's heart. I rememeber him still as my 5th/6th std calssmate ...
A passionate creative person he is/(was) cute and good and really takes people to task . Now with the years passed by i still see the very same person in him .

Then is my teacher whom i dont even know as in person like how a student will know their own teachers. She was one of my most favourite mam .I also happened to meet her online and i am very happy to have seen her online .She is one of those very few teachers whom students would love to be in touch with . Surprisnigly though she has never handled any class for me she still is one among my unforgetable teachers.
Life teaches that we always change since "nothing is permamnent in life except change "...... but then this change is healthy when it is without forgetting the values .. I am really thankful to this virtual world which has helped me find my good old buddies and a nice teacher ...

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 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
