2011

:O =')
Wow. What a year 2011 has been - personally and generally- it has been one heck of a year. It has been magnanimously stupendously horribly GOOD , with its fair share of -uh oh, I am dead - moments as well.Not to sound like the textbook, but the personal events make us view the more public ones with a different eye and the public events for eg.Lokpal movement saw many people reflecting their 'patriotism' towards their country. Whether this reflection could be done in a better/ more refined way will fall under a different post.
This year would have to be the zenith one for the cricket fan xD Yeah. We bore witness to INDIA winning the world cup. No other country could've celebrated this better than us I bet! ~ Every Indian would have his/her own world cup story. And being a CSK fan never hurts! We won the IPL for the second consecutive time much to the delight of crazy fanatics like me , who was sitting in the G stand and yelling 'HAPPY b'day HUSSEY! ' to gain his attention :P Yet we Indians are very demanding and expect our team to perform in every outing. Maybe because of this they prove to be the best drama queens and tumble down like a pack of cards when unnoticed . Eg . Ind vs Australia
Coming to our kollywood/tamil cinema , 2011 absolutely belonged to Dhanush <3 who won the national award through 'aadukalam' and gave us a stellar performance in 'mayakam enna' as the struggling photographer. He also panned out the mass 'Venghai' and 'Mappilai' . If all this wasn't enough his voice became the factor behind the biggest hit of the year/decade/century :P 'Why this kolaveri Di' B|
is it me or is he becoming hotter by the day? :O <3
We saw nothing of Rajini and kamal this year =( who better release a film next year! Earlier part of the year belonged to Jiva who stole our hearts with ko and thala gave us the rocking 'mankatha' .Overall , almost all the films were good and even Vijay films seemed to regain their magic!
Politically it has been a hot year with Osama Bin Laden's assassination (finally) followed by Qaddafi's killing. Closer home , our government redefined the meaning of  'weak' and the parliament is as chaotic as ever. The people were enrolled to act in a live drama called 'lokpal' which proved to be just another parody. Team Anna which seemed fair enough at first lost all its credibility when it started campaigning against one party rather than corruption as a whole. All this has just proved that there is a lot to be achieved and next through the next year.
2011 for me personally has been marked with so many landmark moments that one would have to wonder if it all took place in a year! The year started with me deciding to change schools , a breathtaking nice board exams xD , filling all the trillion journals/slam books and getting mine filled , brooding over all the friends I am gonna miss , a summer of surprises and sad twists and somehow ending up in CV.
Oh boy! How glad I am that I joined CV now. It has widened all the boundaries which ever existed and brought me friends and more friends - who I bet will remain with me for the rest of my lifespan xD It has given me confidence in myself and my academic abilities and at the same time smacked me in the end if i ever got to serious. Improbable but it has come true! Fun and school can be used in the same line without being negative.
The writer in me is also getting nurtured with better quality of posts (or so I think :P ) and more mature thinking and writing. I have come in contact with many fellow bloggers who don't mind sharing their trade secrets xO Also I have started writing in Youth Express ( a magazine!!) which makes me insanely proud of myself :P
I am feeling very very cheesy and nostalgic today ( maybe I shouldn't have sat down to retrospect ) So here goes - I THANK each and every person who has made this year special!! <3 =* the list is very long but mentioning a few names*
XI H - Suno =* , nomi xD , vini(i)! :P , Panchu B| , Shubham , Arunapallav :P , Rhea ;) ,Lavanya, Diyana , Hasika.,.....(everyone!!!)
BVM - The WHOLE skl ( lol I am not getting into any wars here :P )
Bloggers - KITFR , ABFTS , P.Subbu , GB and lots more!
Family , cousins and everyone!
* - the names included were just typed in one GO and the writers mood was influenced by her evil diary. so if your name is missing burn the diary!
and yeah! :P 
HAPPY 2012 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ek gaon mein ek kisan raghu thatha! :P

It's been a week in Pune already!! :O
and believe it or not  - I have fallen in love with this city! <3
or maybe it is just another one of my defense mechanisms , protecting me from shocks. Whatever this is , it has aroused me enough, to write a post! So let me finish this before reality sinks in .
( Side note :

  Defense mechanisms are pretty intriguing . Do you know that I haven't cried a single tear drop yet? My friends think it is some kind of sacrilegious blasphemy from my  part. But hey! If pessimists argue that I have effectively ended one life , I argue back that I have just started a new one :) I do miss chennai . However , I am not going to go gaga over it. Okay I just did . )
I haven't had much chance to discover the city in its entirety yet. But , from whatever I have seen - it is fresh , green , pleasant and mindnumbingly beautiful :')

So here it is . The elusive list of things I have noticed about Pune and my new life in general :

1) I was never a nat…

The Girl who cried wolf

The Girl who cried wolf
Splendid Sir Do you know the girl who cried wolf? Of course you do Do you believe her torrid tales of The Big Bad wolves Who feast on her soul every day? Probably you do. We do know that one bad animal doesn’t define a species Do you? #Notallwolves We get it sir Can we get on with it?
Your fragile ego Calls her a Nazi And disses her into a ditch Of silent suffering Like the good old days When girls were good Like little red riding hood
You forgot the moral of the story didn’t you?

Hi readers! Thanks for sticking around even when I don't write for months. I was having a writer's block of sorts and generally a rough phase in my life. The poem I'm publishing below is a very personal one and took a great deal of bravery from my side to be even posted. Many friends dissuaded me from sharing this particular chapter of my life. I have written on what it is like, to feel like a failure even when you know that you aren't one. It might seem like a small problem to most of you but I assure you that it has taken its toll on my life. However , I've recovered enough to talk about it now and share it with others , for I know that I'm not alone and want others to not feel alone too. This post does not intend to be negative , it just captures one of the darker phases of my life. There is always light at the end of the tunnel , I just chose to project the darkness this time. Thank you.
