The big picture !






Serene was the surrounding ,
With the scented breeze brushing past.
There I stood beneath the canopy
of that lovely big tree !

Green shrubs guarded the place
With big barks bending to base.
Fruits fell ripe on earth
and few just dropped down dead !

On the branch above
held a cosy nest,
mothering three small birdies
that squeaked day and night
till the mother
came back to feed !

Lovely was the nest
for I climbed to see...
quills and cotton
waste that was forgotten
Made a cosy cradle
for those lovely little birdies .

Shells lay scrambled
decorating the home ,
Mother came in with some
diet as good as gold .

Passing days and so the season
time just flies and no more nestlings
Grown,a bird they spread their wings
fending themselves and
fighting for reign !

Nature tells us what life is
none remembers the past
yet one gets carried away with
perceptions so unreal
forgetting things that ought not to be .
Looking at the world
as small as a droplet..
with the big ocean before
lying unrevealed !

Well i just penned some thoughts that gushed in .. i know this has not been able to convey what i felt .. but still an attempt!
Life is a big crossword that gets harder a box is filled . Well past is not something to be forgotten nor has it got to trouble our present and hinder our future ...So living life the way it is !!:)


bon vivant!

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 :)
