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 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 :)
