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 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 :)
