Saroja travels

Venkat Prabhu (or is it the production camp?) has hit upon an innovative & powerful medium of advertizing his current hit movie- Saroja...Bingo ..the movie gets it due on the MTC bus tickets (local bus transport). Cool idea!!

Western sight

Hmm...a different perspective from a foreign tourist. Edward Wong has a painted a rosy picture of TN tourism..but he has left out the pitfalls..

A very interesting beginning to his article - Temples where gods come to life. (
The god was ready for his night of conjugal bliss. The priests of the temple, muscular, shirtless men with white sarongs wrapped around their thighs, bore the god’s palanquin on their shoulders. They marched him slowly along a stone corridor shrouded in shadows to his consort’s shrine. Drumbeats echoed along the walls. Candles flickered outside the doorway to the shrine’s inner sanctum. There, Meenakshi, the fish-eyed goddess, awaited the embrace of her husband, Sundareshwarar, an incarnation of that most priapic of Indian gods, Shiva.
Wonder how this would sound to a devoted pious guy ;-))

The Real Big Bang

Wow! Human power!! The scientists at CERN (with scientists from world over pitching in) are recreating the original Big Bang today. I'm most eagerly awaiting the results..Rediff Link
While browsing the channels, I moved from this 'real earth shattering' report to our own Vijay TV ..just in time to see a Gem Stone Specialist canvassing the people with finance problems to wear topaz ring to clear away their debts...

We live in a real special world ;-))))

Naaku Muuku

If you have not heard THE song - Adra da Naaku Muuku, you don't belong to Tamilnadu. This kuthu song from the movie Kaadhalil Vizhundhen (this movie is eternally under production..waiting for its release) a 10000 waala dhamaka. Vijay Antony (music director) must be a pleased man. TimesofIndia has correctly sensed the pulse of the audience and they have made this the signature tune of their latest ad - a wonderfully shot extensive ad for promoting their chennai edition. what more..they are beaming the ad in TimesNow channel it a wider reach at national level. The Song & the Ad rock!!
But ..hey don't ask me the meaning of this 'tamil' song..I don't know.

Office Ganesha

Poor guy! My friend was a readymade ganesha for vinayagha chaturthi celebrations in our cubicle!
cha..missed the live action!

Saravana Stores Fire

Fire at Ranganathan street, T.Nagar was a tragedy waiting to happen...Just because the fire broke out in the wee hours of the morning, the death toll is very less..can't think of the numbers if it had happened later in the day. Rules simply doesn't exist in the jungle out there... the complexes are built wall to wall with no proper exit facilities..leave alone emergency exit.
What was the action taken ? the floor manager & supervisor have been arrested!!!!! I wonder why they didn't arrest the watchman?
