Day 5: Thank you to 'Something' Special in life

Have you ever written a thank you note to someone? I am sure you have. But have you ever thanked 'something'? Well, I am not too sure if we do that regularly. But when we come to think of it, isn't it important to say a thanks to all those wonderful things around us? I am planning to write a small note to one such thing today.

Now, how do I choose that one thing? It's hard to pick. There are so many things that help me everyday. I thought quite a bit and decided to choose the one object that holds all my favorite things in life- my home. Home, sweet home (Not in Alabama!). So, here is the short thank you note to my sweet home.

Zero Zero Seven, Happy Ln

Home (aka Chinmayam, as we call you),
 Little K-Town

Dear Sweet Home,

I don't need to give you a special introduction. You know me. I live with you (or, is it in you?). I am the one who runs around crazy all the time. I am the one who forgets to lock you from outside or sometimes gets locked outside (of course, without a key!). In the mornings you see me (or probably hear me) stomping my foot and climbing up and down. I am the one who yells many times, sometimes with a reason, and most times without. I do have my own style of walking up and down. You must have seen me roll down the stairs and at times just sit flat there.

I am the one who creates the mess around (Shhh.. it's mostly my partner's involvement or the lack of). Weekdays always mean busy quick mornings and short late evenings. Weekends on the other hand, are lazy and crazy (you can see the contradiction:P).

I am sure you are having fun watching our little fights, many arguments and at times the 'filmy' dramas. You also know our giggles and happy thoughts. So, here is a thanks from me to you.

I thank you for your patience with us at all times. Even when we forget to get the filters changed, or dust the white blinds. Thank you for watching us from all the rain and cold and of course, the hot shot sun. Thank you for giving us a place to sleep in and eat well. Thank you for the wonderful memories you let us paint, and thank you for letting us call you 'home', the place where we truly belong.

Thank you. 

Yours truly,
One who owns you!

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 :)
