Day 165: North Face: Never Stop Exploring

North Face's ad has been on TV for a while this past couple of weeks. Yes, we are almost past Fall and getting closer to winter which means, North Face is the brand we need to remember. On a side note, I remember even seeing the brand placement in most Bollywood movies !

The recent North Face ad is one heck of an ad. Great music, quick editing, relevant images, adrenalin-rush adventures, and in short an awesome ad. An ad's first and foremost duty is to grab attention. That itself will let the consumer notice and pay attention to the message. Then, is some catchy mix to show what the product stands for. It starts with a little girl in a museum and then she imagines all these various adventurous activities one can do and finally imagines herself doing rock climbing! North Face was able to nail that in this ad- at least for me. It definitely does justice to the tag-line- Never Stop Exploring. It shows us how to push our physical limits and explore more. There is surely more to life.

Probably, the music was one big attraction for why I stopped to notice the ad. Yet to figure out the music used in the ad. Not sure if it was from some popular album or made originally for the ad. My shazam wasn't on and I couldn't figure it out. Winter break is also the time when people decide to take vacations. This surely inspired me to think of one!

Watch it here and share your thoughts.

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.
