Seated by the sea-shore!!

Seated by the sea-shore, I was waiting patiently, To get a glimpse of You and your beauty, Like the rising waves, you came to me gracefully, And sat close to me holding my hands securely. Sun was moving closer towards the horizon, But, your eyes removed the approaching darkness, Briny breeze kept touching your flowing hair, Which made a sound of violin in my ear, The waves kept ascending towards you, To add some sugar to it's brackish water, You gave me a hug and sealed it with a kiss, That was the moment I didn't want to miss. With just You and me, everything around me froze, To take me completely into your world of You, The salt deposited on your face glistened like gold, When I touched the gold, my hands went cold, And I realized that sometimes even beauty can shiver you, Then, your melodious tone reverberated in my bones, To make me synchronize perfectly with your wavelength, At that moment, nothing in this world meant more than You.

The World for the Old!!

My great-grandmother passed away in our village near Thiruvarur recently, she was 102. She is survived by six children and numerous grand and great-grand children. I'm one among them and that very day, I was sad to lose my last connection left with a village.

By God's grace, until her last few days, she didn't suffer from any major ailment but that made it hard for death to take her. The doctor said that her heart was pumping healthily till it was the last day and virtually every o

Raja Rani- Crafted for the Youth!!

Raja Rani, a film directed by debutant Atlee (it's hard to call him a debutant) has sustained the hype it created in the minds of the youth. After Vishwaroopam, I feel extremely happy to write a review as this film has hits the bull's eye in every department of film-making. Produced by AR Murugadoss productions, you do expect some quality but this film has sent a crazy wave across the theaters (People were nearly fighting in the counters to get a ticket :P). Starting from the message this film wants to convey, "There is Love after Love failure, There is Life after Love failure." This message pumps in positive vibes in the minds of people as these days "Instant Love/ Break-up" has been the concept. I'm not a supporter of this concept but when people blame themselves, complain that he/she has ditched me, cry alone in deep despair, find it hard to forget people who've loved 'for fun' etc.., this film is of much relevance to them. When people
