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 :

Happy sunday!

So Sundays are the best  since it gives us the much needed time to be our lazy potato-selves. And on what other day can I throw my random-est thoughts at you guys without shaping them professionally? What I am going to do is casually throw some ideas at y’all and if it is worthy of discussion we can make a full fledged post.
1)
    Surveillance is BAD. Then why track our Swiggy* guys?  All of us hate it when our school installed surveillance cameras in the corridors or when they were introduced them in our workplaces. It is not a good feeling to have the Big Brother watching you , even if it is just a fat security guard bhaiya** who is never going to look at you. I’m sure you will have the same reaction if your employer attaches a GPS tracker on you.  While it certainly gives a sense of comfort to know where your food parcel is every minute of the day , isn’t it invading the delivery guy’s workplace privacy to track him every second? If they give a timeframe of 30 minutes and deliver i…

Mahanati Hangover

There is something about this movie. It has invigorated the romantic in me and stirred me so much that I have no option but pen my thoughts on it. It is not that the film is without flaws – the ‘innocent’ phase of savitri tests our patience , the film maybe guilty of being too in love with its protagonist and background score was sometimes just TOO loud and it ( perhaps understandably) hesitates to go too deep into the character’s psyche or action. However , the film soars above because of only one reason – Keerthy Suresh.
Right before I had the lucky opportunity to watch this movie (twice) , Keerthy Suresh was my least favourite actress. Maybe because she acted in Bhairavaa , Remo and Thodari – the three worst films inflicted on mankind. Maybe because she was more Loosu than ponnu in her loosu ponnu roles. She isn’t typically glamorous or stylish ( not that I particularly care) nor did she show any acting skill which would warrant her inclusion in all the latest films. Until now.

She…
