One of my very good friend wanted me to post a blog on the topic of marriage .
Hmm I do not know if I can do write about it the way my friend wanted or not!
Marriage. It’s a bonding; it’s a connection, a name that gives birth to many a number of relations in this world!
Marriage is a bond between the two opposite genders and this bond that is named in front of the society and is secured.
Two people married are more secured than the ones who are not. This is a sacred institution for all. There are many religions and caste and all ( whatever ) everyone values the relationship called as marriage , Who does not celebrate one's marriage day and even In the years after the bond this is remembered as similar to that of a birthday , so it means it is a day of new birth a new lease of life for both I would mean be it the girl or a boy , In Indian culture we have a method that irrespective of any caste or religion the girl goes to the new family some even take the girl with a new name !
It is a blessing that is celebrated with pomp and show depending on ones financial stability .
Even marriages that are simple are done with some garlands and sweets and of course the new dress that marks the day of marriage. Life is about living without any expectations, it is about humility , it is about the sharing and caring that one shows and also the life is all about the giving and taking .When one gets married it is the promise that they take on that day based on their cultural inclination in front of some supreme power and take an oath that each one of them will be with the other or it would be better to say for the other always .
It is the life of understanding for we are to be with some body else who is just a new person
introduced to our life . We have many misgivings as usual and many joyous occasions and also a great life that teaches us what is sharing and loving .Many think that it is just a means to keep the family tree alive and growing but then it is more important that it is the force that makes people or man a more lovable creature !The promise called marriage taken in front of the holy pyre as in the Indian culture or the promise taken in front of the pastor .
Whatever it is two people when decide to be one whole through their life and they be one its more powerful is nt ?
i have still more to talk on this it will continue later in the second article that will follow this
.hope all liked it or rather agree with this !
sayonara !

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 :)
