A Sequel~~ Crazy Ball- An Object of Inspiration!!

Image
There has been a lot of controversies about my previous post Relationships in College ~~ A Recluse's tale and many people thought the character Ralph is ME. I do agree that for a few parts, I did derive inspiration from my life but the entire post is not about my Life alone. It has a few things I've heard from people around me, a few from my learning and understanding about Life and many different sources of inspiration are part of that post. If I've hurt anyone through my writings I apologize and the character Ralph created by me will feature more frequently in posts. I want to create characters with details and descriptions to chisel my writing skills.

However, during his early school days he had a friend named Sarah Jane with whom he is still in touch. Maybe, other students with whom he was studying saw him differently or maybe he didn't come forward to make friends with people; whatever could be the reason, a large part of his time was spend alone. He h…

This post is dedicated to celebrate the founding of Madras (now Chennai) which falls on August 18th every year.Usually, the entire week from August 18th to August 25th is celebrated as Madras Week. I'm blogging about my the place where I've been a resident for the past 18 years... KODAMBAKKAM.

Kodambakkam is known to people as the epicenter of The Tamil Film Industry (aka Kollywood).This correlation is because of the fact that a lot of famous film studios such as AVM Productions, Bharani Studios, L.V Prasad Studios, Vijaya Vauhini Studios were established in and around Kodambakkam which made this place as the hub of the Tamil Film Industry. As our Madras city expanded and slowly the film industry started to shoot in real places rather than opting for sets, the studio culture started perishing. A lot of studios were converted into hospitals, marriage halls etc., The recently launched Vijaya Forum Mall was previously Vijaya Sesh Mahal and in its ancestor was Vijaya Studios. The…
