Victory !

Obama makes history .
Yes, the name 'Barack Obama' was a sure attraction as it sounded really different and when this name was resonated amidst the bush and pains it really was an eye catcher .. hmm ear catcher ..

This victory is in many ways a sense of relief as Bush has been causing too much of pain ... :D Though i dont prefer politics be it world or regional , i did happen to watch one of his speeches and yes it did really sound as words from a charismatic leader.
Obama is now the 44th president and 1st African American president and this for sure is amazing change that the world requires.
Not that being an African American could make a lot difference , the difference is made by the persona , the person himself.

The crisis now the world faces with stringent financial gates and lots of happenings that could possibly be handled better by someone like Obama , at least from the election campaigns that he conducted it was interesting to watch him.
Surely time would be the answer for all this and what India has to gain with this change is lot more to answer right now it is certain that India would be a part of the growing economy in the world for India would be a super power soon .. Super power in the making ! ;) well yes , lots to reform , lots to progress but for certain , we would .

By the way , here is Wishing all the best to Barack Obama and the rest of the world too for , whatever be said , Changes in America does have an impact in the rest of the world countries ..
So cya ! Take care ..

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 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
