Day 30: 30 days of writing !


Picture Courtesy: Google Images
It is the 30th post. I cannot believe that I survived this first 30 days of writing. More than writing, even coming up with interesting (for me) topics has been a hard task. After I am back from work, all I really want to do is just hit the bed and not be online. However, I have managed to keep it going. Thanks to all those who are reading this page, posting comments or sharing it in person. Thank you. The page views I get, surely motivates me to keep going.

For today's post, thought will highlight a couple of points of reaching the 30th day of 365 days challenge. 

The first thing that comes to mind is the fact of how much I have grown to love writing. Even though, I started this page to help me with my favorite hobby, I have come to realise, how writing weekday, has just increased my passion for it. This is surely not easy. It is a very hard task. I am very lost and confused as I walk this path. But as I am doing it everyday, I end up discovering new things to enjoy and explore. Even though, the struggle to come up with a new idea and pen a short paragraph, I find this process very rewarding. 

It is a sweet stress:) if there is one ! As I end up reading a lot academic reading, spending time to read some general light books is hard. I wish I could do that along with this challenge as it will surely help me become better at writing. 

The beauty of blogging is that you can share. You can share your ideas, thoughts and opinions. It is one of the best ways to create and co-create knowledge. Of course, this makes it a responsible hobby. 

From tomorrow, I am hoping to to start am starting a special thematic post. I hope I can keep both of us entertained- you and I. 

Thank you for your time and I would really appreciate if you can comment and share your feedback, whenever you can. It surely helps.

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 :)
