Busy-bee .. life !!:)


Well i am welcoming myself back to the blogging world . How did i lose track of writing on this beautiful wall to work pressure and other jobs ??

I repent and what have i decided ..I am gonna blog every alternate day at least .. at least one liners !!!So i hope everything has been fine with all you friends..

Yes , yes .. here is wishing you a wonderful, happy -happy new year 2010 (belated) and yes happy makar sankrathi /pongal/baisaki..

Lots have been happening . I will just pen down in order of my thoughts .

Music - Yes 'Marghazi season just got over and we had great 'kutcheris' have been happening around . Film music - the latest or the very recent flower to bloom is my favourite(infact world's fav) music composer's release.Yeah and you guessed it right , A.R.Rahman's new release 'Vinnai thandi varuvaya'!!! This was released just a couple of days ago and it is just so full of life and soul as usual. Yes as every other Rahman song this grows everytime you listen . Jai Ho! Rahman .. Love you sir .. btw he just celebrated his birthday ( Jan 6th ) .

Movies - Lots of new movies released be it English , Tamil, Malayalam or Hindi. and one of the most talked about and awaited movie is Aamir's - 3 idiots ! 'Allz well' with the movie, even if Chetan bhagat had made some noise this movie just rocks ... It IS A MUST WATCH!!

Aamir , Maddy or Sharman everyone has given their best and most important beautifully shot .

Vidhu Vinod chopra is right- the movie though has taken the plot of Chetan's best seller -Five point someone it surely is not a movie made from the novel. It just has a few similarities that is all. Love you Aamir for giving us great movies like this.. it is worth the money one spends.

Books - Oh yes best friends in a man's life! Read many and the new release (a couple of months ago) 'Two states - story of my marriage' by Chetan bhagat is surely a good one especially for those who were not able to come out of the shock after reading '3 mistakes of my life'!!he he ..

Btw Chennai 33rd book fair was good ...

Work - Professionally it has been quiet a busy period and would remain so. Lots brewing and the market has now revived a bit ..

So with all these happenings life has been greatly busy and occupied that blogging took a back seat .. anyways as promised i will try to add on something once in 2 -3 days...

Do take care

tada ..

love n shabba khayar

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.
