My name is Khan ! So ??? .......

Yet another day . Rain Gods somehow showered some 'joy' for Chennai waasi's ! But lot happening throughout . Loads to pen , loads to prattle. 

The first thing that was in my mind was the SRK effect . I guess Mr. Karan Johar must be happy since his new movie in making ... 'My name is Khan' is getting a great momentum even before things are on ... 

Well the fact that Mr. SRK is popular and great both in desi ground and also in the international arena  is 100% true and acceptable . But what makes one think that being SRK makes it easy for you to walk off without any formalities of checking ? 

Dr. APJ Kalam was frisked and the media made such a hue and cry but luckily Dr. APJ is a sensible and true citizen did not respond to all this . But now i see SRK saying he is ashamed to step in to the soil of America because he was frisked is sheer rubbish . 

Well yes if i stand in SRK's position and think , there is a flip side to this . It is the fact that America sometimes behaves in a mad fashion. 

They could be stupid (as they mostly are!!) about the fact that not all names sounding khan or khan is dangerous.

Yes it could be true that every person who is named ' Abbas , Khan , ahmed or whatever , a name that is from the Quran and seems Asian sure is a matter of extra concern for the Americans and most other nations where there had been terrorist attacks. 

Well its wrong . Why wrong ? Because being a khan or a salim does not make one a probable terrorist . Now being a robert or a krishan doesnt stop you from not being a terrrorist . 

Every person who walks in to a place of great security must be frisked and double checked whoever be it . Be it an Asian , American or European . 

What guarantee can one give that an insider does not help in the country's bomb attacks ?

So every individual needs to be checked carefully by the authorities be it a king or a common man / woman. 

All this hungama and hulchul by media over SRK's frisk is utter nonsense and more importance needs to be given for such issues of concern . 

What faith can we have on our politicians ? And on what ground should they be left free just because they are VIP's ! It is only a bad sign for the Indian government and people if this kind of treatment - biased is imparted and also expected elsewhere . 

We need to step up our base and be cautious as moments as these when we take such silly issues to the centre there could be some great signals transmitted to the evil forces in society . 

Anyways tata .. good night and have a great day !

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.
