A poem i guess may be simple , stupid and weird but it is just what i felt doing !

I want to run away from the world so wide,
I want to run away to the wildness alive,
I want to runaway from the worries alike
I want to runaway just far and wide.
It is not that I fear to fight back,
It is not that I detest to stand up,
Nor is it that I don’t like to live
Still I want to runaway …
Runaway just far and wide.

In to the world of natural life,
The splendid ocean and; the sprawling green fields,
The resplendent sky, with the eagles so high.

I want to sleep in the oceans’ bed,
Just like the pearl cosy in its shell,
I wish to race with the dolphins under,
Mermaids as friends and the bubbles for air.

I want to runaway to the deep green mysteries,
The forests nestling the rare big beasts.
I want to befriend the elephant by the river
Blindly follow a herd of lovely deer,
To feel the hares so fluffy and fair.

My hunger drained with the dry figs and berries,
The silvern stream to quench my thirst.
I want to hang on the bark of the tree,
Play the see saw and the swing for free
Sing with the birdies nestling on top!
Sweet little squirrels to watch and smile.

The open skies and a big bear hug,
Just with the fireflies glowing around.
A good night’s sleep with the moon to guard,
The animal kingdom to watch me all night.
I wish to make huge snow man,
Follow the reindeer and watch the seals
How I could just runaway to the poles
And freeze up with the white soft snow!

I want to run away in to this vast blue sky
Like butterfly or a nightingale
A parakeet or a white eagle
All I want is to fly around.

I wish to feel the wind against my face,
Want to chew the milk white clouds
I just wish to kiss the moon...
Stay with the gulls hovering the waves
That first dew drops as soft as silk ,
feel against my skin with the cool breeze around.
Pitter patter falls the rain drops,
wetting the earth for a new lease of life.
The peacocks around merrily dance about
swaying to the rythm of the falling drops
the animals around just hide about -
to escape the lash of the silvery drops !

Lo! i wish i dance with joy ,
splashing around the puddles just like a child.

I wish to just runaway .

Away and away and far away I just want to run away!
Run away from the madding crowd..
Run away from the world of white lies,
World of miseries born for selfish goals.

Just to live one moment sinless, so nice;
swaying to the tune of the nature’s song of joy …
smiling till my dimples squeak so softly
Elated at living a day so nice .
a day just mine and only mine!

Runaway …
I want to runaway!

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 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!
