Naan pogiren mele mele

This is a beautiful romantic song from the movie Naanayam composed by James Vasanthan and sung by the evergreen duo S.P.Balasubramaniam and Chithra. Both simply rock with their mind blowing  and God-gifted voices even after two decades. The lyrics are also so romantic and cute. Check it out.

f: naan pogiren meley meley
boolagamey kaalin kezhey
vin meengalin kootam en meley

poo vaaliyin neerai poley
nee sindhinaai endhan meley
naan pookiren panner poo poley

thadumari ponen andrey
unnai paartha neram
adayalam illa ondrai
kanden nenjin oram
yen unnai paarthen endrey
ullam kelvi ketkum
aanalum nenjam andha nerathai
nesikkum

m: naan pogiren meley meley
boolagamey kaalin kezhey
vin meengalin kootam en meley

poo vaaliyin neerai poley
nee sindhinaai endhan meley
naan pookiren panner poo poley

thadumari ponen andrey
unnai paartha neram
adayalam illa ondrai
kanden nenjin oram
yen unnai paarthen endrey
ullam kelvi ketkum
aanalum nenjam andha nerathai
nesikkum

Charanam 1

f: kannadi munne nindrey thaniyaaga naan pesa
yaarenum jannal thaandi paarthaal ayyo
ul pakkam thaazppaal pottum arayinul nee vandhaai
kai neeti thottu paarthen kaatrai ayyo

m: en veetil neeyum vandhu serum kaalam ekkalam
poo maalai seidhey vaaduthey
en methai thedum porvai yaavum selai aagadho
vaaradho annalum indrey haan

Charanam 2

m: en thookam vendum endraai thara matten endraney
kanavennum kalla saavi kondey vandhaai
vaarthaigal thedi thedi naan pesi paartheney
mounathil pesum vithai neethaan thanthaai

f: andradam pogum paadhai yaavum indru maatrangal
kaanamal ponen paadhiyil
nee vandhu ennai meetu selvaai endru ingeye
kaal noga kaal noga nindren

m: naan pogiren meley meley

My Love for Mumbai

Mumbai- I just hated this place till last year same day. I had been to Mumbai for 3 days when I was in my 3rd year Engineering. (Courtesy my aunt’s Amway convection). I went with my uncle and aunt from Bangalore. Being a cosmopolitan city, it didnt impress me despite its tall buildings and hot figures. I just hated the crowd, pollution and traffic. I was about to miss my train while leaving from Mumbai though I started 2 hours before. If I were 10 minutes late, I would have missed the train. From that day, I bid a big good-bye to Mumbai. Terrorism and insecurity  are the foremost factors to hate Mumbai. Hence I never showed interest to visit the place.

But after the Mumbai Terror attack on 26/11/08 and watching the Burning Taj, with gun shots all around a public place I wished to be in such a place to experience the thrill and adventure. I had seen only in movies (esp RGV). I wanted to join my then company’s Mumbai branch with Muru.  I had just underwent a surgery then so I didnt tell my wish to anyone. But believe it or not, on Dec 8th 2008, I got a call from our HR that I would get transferred to Mumbai. He told me to vacate Kolkata and join Mumbai asap. That time I was in Chennai in my uncle’s home. When I told this to my family, none wanted me to go since it was just 10 days after the Terrorist Attack. My friend Rachna might be the only happy person as she too loves Mumbai. But I believed that nothing would happen since my wish became true. One of my favourite Gods had answered my prayer. I left for Kolkata from Chennai by train and the next day itself I left for Mumbai with my bag and baggages. My uncle scolded me to be assertive and to tell my PM to get a week’s extension for transfer since I was a week patient then. But my zeal and will power gave me confidence to travel again 2 days by train. My mom still wonder as I was a delicate darling and a couch potat0 who never used to move from my place totake a glass of water. On 15.08.2008 midnight, I landed in my dream place at Dadar Station. Mumbai meri Jaan!

Paa

Paa – The yet to be released movie starring Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan and Vidya Balan in the lead roles is the talk of the B-Town. The Cheeni Kum team is back. Director R.Balki teams up again with Amitabh, Maestro Ilayaraja, P.C.Sreeram and Paresh Rawal but without Tabu. It created a curiosity when it was announced that Junior B will be playing Big B’s father in the movie. Now, after the teaser, it created more eagerness to watch it. Yes, Amitabh is playing the son of Abhishek who has a disease of ageing in childhood. He gets a physical appearance of 60 year old man in his teen age. The highlight is Big B’s make up. He takes 2 days rest after a day’s shoot. That much heavy make-up. P.C.Sreeram has used a different kind of camera lens to show Amitabh Bachchan shorter. K.S.Ravikumar should have used that in Aadhavan to show the younger Surya instead of cheap Graphics which was so unreal.

Music: Since Cheeni Kum’s music was one of my favourites, I expected the same from Paa. But I was disppointed very much since Shreya has not even sung a song in the album. Shreya was given evergreen Tamil songs in the former movie. But what hap between Ilayaraja & Shreya? The songs are okay. Mudhi mudhi is quite novel and refreshing. It has 3 versions. Putham pudhu kaalai is recreated as “Halke se bole” but for less than 2 mins. My most fav Raja number “Sangathil padadha kavidhai..” is recreated as “Gumm Summ Gumm..” though it was recreated as “Monday to uthkar chalo…” in Balu Mahendra’s Hindi flick Aur Ek Prem Kahaani. I set this as my caller tune soon after hearing the song. Just a couple of weeks back, I told about this song in different languages to my roomie Arun Ram. I wished that Shreya would sing this song once. But Bhavatharini has sung the song. Anyways, I just love the song which made me a die-hard fan of the Maestro. You too enjoy!!!

Friday the 13th

Don’t think this is a Horror post or a post about Ghosts and Devils. Generally 13 is considered an unlucky (the most unluckiest, in fact) number. And if 13 falls on a Friday, it’s the most dangerous and unluckiest day that something wrong would happen. In most of the horror movies, the door no of the hero’s/heroine’s house must be 13 (Right from13-aam number veedu till the more recent 13B/Yaaravrum Nalam). It would have been perfect if it had released two weeks before. Cos it was released on March 6th 2009. 2 weeks before was Feb 13th, which was a Friday!

But for me, 13 is one of the luckiest numbers nest to 1 series like 1, 10, 19 and 28. Some of my very good friends are 13 born. My friends Amit and Tarun who are brothers are very good examples for that. The Dates of Joining of my 2nd, 3rd and 4th jobs were on 13th of Aug, Feb and Jul respectively. Even today, many of my colleagues complimented me that I looked good in the pink T-shirt I was wearing today (Ahem! It’s an “osi” T-shirt). Even today I felt a symptom of a good thing that’s gonna happen. I’ll post that later.

P.S:  I would be so glad if my fiancee’s B’day is a 13th of any month except November. Cos I keep distance from those Venomous  Scorpions)

11/11

Today is 11.11.2009. Many of my close friends know that after two years would be my Wedding Day. Yes, since I’m particular about dates of important events, I wanted my Wedding date to be 10.10.10. because 1 is my lucky number and I will in my 28th year. Also it’s a Sunday so that all can attend my wedding. But my mom told it’s Purattasi maasam which is not suitable for wedding. So I decided to postpone the date to 11.11.11. which is very much suitable for weddings and is on Friday. But my mom is so keen to get me married before I complete 27. Let’s see what’s gonna happen. Will I marry on 11.11.11 or gonna be wid my child on that day with the fingers crossed!

An Unforgettable Day

Yes, today is an unforgettable day in my Life. last year same day, I experienced the pain caused due to Appendicitis. I was in Asansol in WB doing Drive test. I worked on that Sunday to get comp off and to attend my friend’s Rup Narayan’s wedding at Kolkata. From that morning I had vomitting sensation and I felt indigestion. I thought it’s because of the Vegetable biriyani I had last night in the Mumbai Kitchen restaurant. So I just had sprite in the morning and started my work. I went a Muslim residing area where beef were being prepared in many homes. I could control my vomitting sensation. Suddenly I got pain in my right abdomen and started vomitting. I thought I became a victim of food poison and went to a nearby hospital by taking Rs.3500 from ATM.

After reaching the hospital, my pain got increased and kept increasing. The lady doctor examined and asked me to lie on the bed and she went. But I started screaming as the pain was more and more. It’s the most vigorous pain I’ve ever experienced. I thought of a woman’s labour pain since it’s far more painful than this which is almost like a rebirth to her.I’m very much grateful to the driver Azad and the rigger Gaurang who were with me. I gave them Rs.200 and told them to buy the prescribed medicine. Then a nurse came and gave me a pain killer (Voveron injection) and a sedative. I felt better and felt asleep. I was taken to the General ward. Meanwhile X-ray was taken but I couldn’t feel anything since I was given sedative. After about an hour a male doctor came to me and examined my abdomen and told me that he had diagnosed Appedicitis and I had to undergo a surgery withing 24 hours. I was scared and called my mom. Till then I didn’t want to tell any of my family members as they would worry since I was away. As the doctor said about surgery, I couldn’t tell anything without consulting my mom who’s a nurse. I called her and was worried very much as I was crying in pain. She advised me to come back to Tamil Nadu or Kolkata to undergo the surgery. She told that she would come to Kolkata in the meanwhile. I told the doctor that i would go back to Kolkata and get the surgery done. The doctor gave me the X-ray and other Bills which showed Rs.2800/- When I inserted my hand to take my purse out of the Jean, I was shocked as my wallet was missing.

When I was asleep, someone had stolen my wallet. When I reported to the doctor, he just said that it’s not his concern and I was responsible for my belongings. He neither took any action nor interrogated the hospital workers. I was totally confused since I was in a place where I didnt know anyone ohter than the rigger Gaurang and driver Azad. I didnt suspect them but I suspected the doctor’s sub-ordinate (compounder??!!). Thank God, if I had undergone a surgery, one of my kidneys would have been stolen for sure. I didnt know anyone and I called my Administrative Executive Antara Nandy (Antara di for dear ones) since my Project Manager Mr. Annu Kumar was just a week new and I hadn’t met him. She immediately sent a person Ramakrishna, who was handling a project (Vodafone) in Asansol. I had heard about him from other colleagues since he’s a South Indian. For the people in South, all the Hindi speaking guys are North Indians eventhough they are from Gujarat or West Bengal. Similarly for them all the South Indians are from same place, speaking same language and watching stupid stunts of Rajnikanth/Nagarjuna. Ramakrishna is from AP. He came to the hospital and paid my Hospital bills and also thee Hotel bills where I was staying. Antara di had arranged a cab to take me from Asansol to Kolkata with Ramakrishna. In the mean time my uncle Aadhavun and my brother Deepak started from Chennai to Kolkata by flight. My brother, lucky guy got a chance to travel by air because of me.

Idaicherugal: Vaaranam Aayiram was the much-awaited movie then and it was supposed to release on Nov 14th 2008. My uncle was about to get 2 free tickets for its Premiere show (On Nov 13th at Satyam). When he told me I was in Asansol and he told he would give those tickets to my brother who was in Chennai. I told my uncle to give a ticket for me. He asked me how could I watch and I replied I would come to Chennai just to watch the movie and would go back to Kolkata. He was laughing at that time. But “vidhi valiyadhu“. The fate made him come to Kolkata along with my bro to pick me. But unfortunately he didnt get those tickets. Still I was happy as I would be in Tamil Nadu and could see VA.

I reached Kolkata and went to the airport to receive them. Then went to the AMRI, the so called best hospital of Kolkata. The admitted and examined me for a day and diagnosed that I dont have appendicitis. I was told that I got the pain due to some kidney stones. I also felt normal and thought I had nothing serious. But I wanted to leave from work for some days. Thanks to my PM who granted me medical leave to undergo surgery. So, happily i got discharged from AMRI and left for Chennai and from there I went to my home alone. None accompanied me since I was normal and believed that I didnt have Appendicitis issue. But it was diagnosed in Erode and I was told to undergo the surgery asap. I was thrilled to experience the first surgery of my life. Ironically, my surgery was fixed on Nov-14, 2008, the release date of Vaaranam Aayiram.

P.S:  I couldn’t thank the persons then. I wish to express my gratitude through my blog to them. I am very much grateful to the Driver Azad, the rigger Gaurang, Antara Di, Ramakrishna, Anupam Sir, my brother Deepak (thambiudaiyaan), my uncle and aunt who allowed him to go to Kolkata. Thank You All!!!
