Day 257: When nobody.....

Image Courtesy: Google Images
When nobody likes you, it will hurt you very much,
But try to smile wide and take it with a stride.

When nobody talks to you, you will feel rejected,
But take a deep breath and find peace in yourself.

When nobody values your views, it will cause heartaches,
But try to take a pause and reflect on it well.

When nobody is your friend, you will feel worthless,
But try and walk ahead, for you will find the best.

When nobody cares, it will make you very sad,
But try and find your 'self', for no one can love you any better.

When nobody stands up for you, you will feel let down,
But try and find your voice to fight your own battles.

When nobody supports you, you will feel like not living,
But try to be positive and hold on to your feelings.

When nobody does anything, just remember one thing,
they are not the reason you are really here.

I know it ain't easy as you struggle living here,
I know it ain't easy to not cry yet forget.
But I want you to remember that none of these matter,
when you wake up tomorrow and take your next step.

In the years to follow, a time will come,
when you will be wanted by all who didn't at first care.
You will be called in for a chat or two,
May be for a photo and an autograph too.
Then you will see how they adore you,
and cherish those little moments they ever knew you.

Time will come dear and your dreams will too,
Keep your spirits up and they will surely come true.

Note: A poem that has been on my mind for a while now. Not sure how easy it is to follow every word given here. But every time I read, I find it makes me really better.

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 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 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 :)
