Blind thoughts , did i sleep off?

Walking down the streets ,
i stopped to see a girl
a girl with an extra hand ,
a hand that sees for her.

I walked beside her.
Smiling,I asked her
as to where did she wish to go
so that i can see for her?

The girl replied ,thanking me
saying it's God who brings
you people for us , I thank,
all those good hearts out here.

I smiled weakly saying,
"God is so special that He
surely will bless you all,
with a sight within you
that glows even in the dark" .

Conversation a while ,
she coneveyed the fact that
she was studying the ,
existence of our Golden past.

Her parents afar
she lived alone in this place,
living to keep her lamp ,
The lamp of knowledge
burning so bright ,
that will lighten up her visions
which lay hidden in the dark .

She then asked,
"Have you ever been to help someone like me ?"
I nodded ,yet taken aback
for there now was , that naked truth torn apart.

i know i have been good
but did i make a difference ?
did i do something great for them?
to feel so good ?

lost in my thoughts , i bade her good bye
as she reached her place

i turned to go ..
walking towards my destination ,
with my heart and soul thinking
did i ever make a difference.
Love and care , i did shower
but i really have many a miles to
go before i sleep that eternal sleep

This poem came across my mind , or rather this idea to pen this came across my mind after i had an experience today with a visually challenged young girl on the streets.
I was walking along Mylapore and i had to go to a place called "Warren road " .I started walking from Radhakrishnan salai(a street in Mylapore again) and was trying to hire an auto .

There was a girl walking in front who was visually challenged and was walking with the aid of her stick . i never noticed her and was just treading behind . She had to stop and walk ( I am sure you are aware of our "healthy" best roads!:( ).Then i noticed her "Challenge"( not a problem) .So assisted her till her point of destination (it was a bajji store:)) .She said she was pursuing her second year BA HISTORY ! from University , and she stayed in the hostel because her parents were at Trichy.
As i helped her she was thanking all the commom people who help her and she asked me "What have you done for people like me"?
I really wondered , was that someone making her ask ! * God Himself seemed to question !

I nodded yes i have then i thought did i really do anything much ?

Well by then she reached her point and then i started looking around for a way to reach Warrens road. As i saw an auto man , i asked him for the route and suddenly the customer in the auto a lady (of my mothers' age, pretty indeed) offered a lift since she was on her way to that place. I accepted and asked for the rate for sharing , She declined, nor did the auto man take and she bade me bye at my place smiling!

I thought , all my act of small kindness , It has been so beautifully returned .
I am NOT PROFESSING THAT DO GOOD ACTS EXPECTING A GOOD RETURN!! NEVER AT ALL. But what i wanted to throw light on is that every action is returned , every word of love we share , we will be loved more . So why are we selfish , hard and jealous etc.
We have to change - note We is just a term since it means those minds who are entangled in this viscious web of evil thoughts!

Thanks Have a great day ... ANd yes Bakrid wishes to all the people in the world and also wishing a Happy Christmas in advance.

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 :)
