Blissful days ...One's childhood days

A duet .. has been a dream for me .. all these days .. i wanted to be treated like a singer and sing my heart out .And today that was possible since i was treated at par to be a singer by a person named Anish .. my neighbour .....
all wondering eh ! He is 3 years old ! and a very smart kid that he is .. he loves the songs from Gajini and also Vettayadu vilayadu .. he also hums them in the perfect tune .. and also knows the lyrics to an extent ( sometimes even better than me ;-)) Today when he was with me he wanted me to play the song in my system . I agreed and played .. and my God when it was a the heroines turn to sing .. he said "Meena akka ... paadunga .. Sing !" Excited that i was at the most innocent request from someone so cute ... and also very cutely .. gave a nice feeling ..really a great feeling.Such is the innocence of a child so naive yet so sharp in today's world .
I just sat thinking about those innocent days ........ how nice it was to be a child ..growing everday every minute we learn a lot , lot about the world the life we are in , shedding off the skins of innocence, losing our bliss...
How nice would it be if we live with that innocence .. so peaceful ......
but yes it is good to learn too .. and its important to grow !:-(

There is yet another instance of innocence i have here to share . There was a small girl again my neighbour who came to me asking for some help in her science homework . Her homework was to write a few lines about some amazing animal .
And she had the choice of Chameleon .So I , a googler ... used this to get the best details of this animal . She was sitting with me and suddenly said "Akka ,mam asked to me write at least one sentence naturally ....."
She has understood it to be a sentence beginning or a sentence that has a term naturally !
where as actually mam has asked them indirectly not to copy paste from the net or copy from the encyclopedias!
Then after explaining this to her i set writing ....
When she told me her face had portrayed that innocence that i knew was the most beautiful one could see.
When she told me the same her voice ringed the sweetness of that child's pure heart.
Aah !
I wish i could get back to those days ..........
Well but then I cannot be a blogger now!!!:)
Correct na?

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 :)
