One more year. One more blogging challenge. Yes. I am participating in the A to Z Blogging Challenge for the second consecutive year. As exciting as it was to do it on two different themes in two different blogs last time, I am sticking to one theme on this blog alone, this time. Deciding the… Continue reading A to Z Theme Reveal!
Everyone who has used Facebook in the last few months would know of the superb, calculated introduction of the ‘reactions’. I am writing this post in the light of ‘reactions’ being available for Messenger messages too, as I discovered only yesterday (probably much, much later after it was originally introduced. But still. I jumped 'into'… Continue reading Why did you just ‘like’ my picture?
There is a very famous movie in Tamil, called ‘Iru Kodugal’. For some reason, this sad saga is a favorite movie of mine despite my aversion to the philosophy / drama genre. It is an out and out drama movie with stellar (read: sometimes slightly overboard) performances that once captured the imagination of the movie-going… Continue reading The longer line!
This post is the reaction to something I heard earlier in the day, where I heard someone refer to themselves as ‘oxymoronic’ in order to show that they have two contradicting personalities in a single shell. Never in any single moment before this time have I wondered about how some words have begun to mean… Continue reading Oxymoronic?!
We have all been there. WhatsApp gave us an option to chat with multiple people at once (like every other platform ever) and named it a ‘Group’. Very innovative there. I am a part of too many WhatsApp groups, actually there is no real count and I am not sure until a notification pops up.… Continue reading The 10 Commandments of A Whatsapp Group
I could not have chosen a ‘better’ time to write on this combination, but I should have written on this list long ago. No amount of discord or confusion between Balu and Raja as they are popularly known can tarnish the memory of the beautiful songs they have given to us. This list is my… Continue reading Always on Repeat (Part 6 – Ilayaraja SPB hits)
This is a list that will shock purists of Carnatic Music who swear by their ‘original’ singers. Even though I grew up in a household that appreciated the renditions of Maharajapuram Santhanam, M L Vasanthakumari, M S Subbulakshmi and the other names known in the classical music industry, I developed my own taste and started… Continue reading Always on Repeat (Part – 5 The Devotional Songs for Travel Playlist)
Perhaps one of my most favorite songs of the millennium year is Pachai Nirame, the cult hit from the Tamil movie Alaipayuthey Be it in the music or the peppy voices or (okay, I agree) the actor, everything about the song is perfection. The lyrics are my personal favorite though, for various reasons. The hero… Continue reading The Colour Green
Travels down the memory lane are always sweet, and definitely worth it for all the beautiful recollections they bring along. I have always associated many memories to the strangest of things such that a single song, a simple scene or an aroma can take me back years to some place I had long forgotten. The… Continue reading The 40 Year Old Transistor!
Happiness is a vague concept. The definition of what constitutes as happiness varies not only with person to person but also with the same person in different scenarios. There is never a finite meter for happiness, but the world revolves in dissatisfaction because everyone uses someone else’s meter for happiness to define their own. To… Continue reading Little it is…
