Why ideas net ? what is in name , well so many asked me and i guess just like any other baby i was never asked before being named for they thought i am a kid who knows not a thing ! And i because of my little knowledge give explanations like Ideas knitted like a net is what my name stands for .. well at least i guess so . :)

After a long time , as a part of growth , i have changed the way i looked . i have as you could say tried shaping my looks and tried keeping up with the trend :D he he ... As i read somewhere "Change is the only thing constant in the world" i loved the change i have been through. I loved this make over .Of course i was as tensed as you , when you go for a facial or a haircut !

I loved it when someone compliments me for how i think, present and live in this space.And I thank each one of you for the special comments on how i share my thoughts and how good are they ! I hope i get to talk to all of you more and more , more often than usual and of course all what makes sense!

Time is a very fast train and just like Geet* missed hers i have missed many the same many times and have not been punctual and i regret ! Of course my adventures through these 2 years have been pleasant ,but as i am now 2 , i know more words than i had in the past and i surely will use to contribute the best always . i wish from this year i contribute such that those who visit my net ! ideas net, leave happy , cheerful and with more thoughts to ponder or think about ! I wish to make a difference .. a difference to atleast one life !Unlike every other two years i know now that " i have learnt a lot more than i wished for "

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

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…
