“Hi it’s me again……………….same time same day next week…”
These are the standard dialogues of the anchor persons seen on TV…..wonder why people just copy and not change their style. Is it that all the combinations for a good announcer been exhausted from the dictionary? I really don’t know.
It is like nowadays, we the listeners or the couched potatoes can mouth their dialogues with them or guess at what they are going to say next.
So if this is criticism, I think it is constructive but what is it that will make them change their current style or their way of presentation?
Or is it that they stick to the same old mundane style because their audience love them and don’t want them to change?
I think that is it sometimes… because nowadays the standard dialogue one hears from people all around is that they don’t have time and it is this timeless-ness that turns them into copycats ………or has people been lacking creativity ………Questions questions questions….!!!!
There should be answers to all these questions because it is just one universe and we are to have all the queries within it. Now this doesn’t mean that the answers has to be in today or tomorrow but maybe some day we might be up there in heaven (or who knows hell at that particular time?)
So questions can always be answered but the fact remains why the stereotyping always now and for ever……
why are theses here because i’m talking about arrangements and arrangements could be in pearls too…….
the flowers are awesome to use arjun’s term……….i meant the arrangement……….
nowadays i’m fascinated by flowers arrangements. not those typical ones but ones like these above i just sont know why but my job requires me to look at them sometimes once in a while and therefore here i am collecting them as wall paper and screen saver material. so as one doesn’t have to stretch one’s imagination to realize that these are my current screensaver pics …..
so what is so special about them …..i really dont know …..there is something that attracts me to such arrangements nowadays….maybe i’m tired of seeing those old fashioned arrangements…who knows ……..i get bored with things easily..
and not only things but with habits and people ….may be that is an aquarian trait……..but even if it is i think it is too late to change now as habits die hard……….
habit is the only word i know of which looks what it means………
ok here we go …i ‘ll demonstrate……. oh its
ok here we go
………..We remove the H and A BIT remains………..
……….We remove the A still …….IT remains………..
this arrangement is beautiful. i dont think this is an arrangement but sure is because it looks like one though as if somebody has just plucked them from the farm or the fields…..
this is just wonderful ………..i am fascinated with the colour………and the roses …
they are the most difficult of palnts to grow i guess ,,….the most careful of all taken care of …….
that’s all i can think of now ……….
Once in a way we should have fun and the best way to have fun is, if we have no other crazy thing to do….. is…… watch a movie. A movie that can really take one out of the reality and place you elsewhere for a period of time….
If that should be the definition of an ideal movie, I guess one should go watch the first half of “salaam namaste”……..or the whole of “no entry”…..by the way both are names of Bollywood movies which were recently released………I guess all over the world…….a few weeks back……….
Now we had an argument, argument I guess is too harsh a word, I should rather put it as a discussion with a teacher once upon a time when in school. So by now whoever is reading this would have understood who this “we” is ……..we the students of my class in STD XII….. I guess…..we were just talking and of course it was an English class so we talked about drama which is one of the genres of literature and which eventually led to the movies…..in all languages….Hey I never thought about it that way before….u know something, there are some things which we never think about deeply and so never have an opinion about it,…..but there would be a trigger, a hidden thought about any passing scene or talk or action…..now if I say that’s what I think…..it would be 100% true.
Back to having fun…..one can have fun in innumerable ways according to what stuff one is made of …….now by stuff I mean the sOmeThInG that is fed into the brain while growing up in this society…….that is like a sentence plucked out of a sociology text book! But that is the way it is…….we never know what all weird thoughts one individual has in the entirety of his/her lifetime,….but that’s personal nothing to cribbing about……..so when there are millions of people in this world and there will be no shortage of ideas….now whether they are appreciated by the other half of the community or not is the big question????? Usually they are not ……..people are a bit jealous as always….when others do crazy things …..Appreciation is a like success …..is elusive in nature….something fake and sometimes from the wrong people.!!!!
….but if a movie or a book or something like that can purge u like Aristotle says then that would be the best experience ever…I guess and that’s why Aristotle did say that once upon a time and it still is not over layered by any other theories…..
Now, why I started off telling about movies …..because I saw a movie last night and that was salaam namaste ..the person sitting right next to me has seen it thrice already so I really didn’t know what made him come once again…u bet I knew the reason,…it was a team thingy from office and going with a team is a different experience all together even if it is a movie one has watched alone or with dear ones….
The movie was not all that bad as it was made up to be. It is a one time watch and take my word there are areas where one could laugh and will laugh…
So jobless people have to entertain themselves with movies at least every weekend so ….
Any movie-going is a fun activity and I’m sure we all do it once in a while.
If not! take a break from the small screen….stop being a couched/ mouse potato and enjoy the Broadway or the silver screen…….
“As I was slowly passing an orphan’s home one day
I stopped there for a moment
To watch the children play
Alone a boy was standing and when I ask him why
He turned with eyes that could not see
And he began to cry
I’m nobody’s child
Just like a flower
I’m growing wild
No mummy’s kisses and no daddy’s smiles
Nobody wants me
I’m nobody’s child.”
Just the first part of a song my mom taught me for a competition in the 4th grade and for which I won the first prize and made the audience cry…….
Come to think of it now ……..i never realized then that anybody could cry because of music.
There was a film called sargam in Malayalam where a paralyzed girl gets cured due to the strength of music. (of course she was not the one who sang the song but somebody else did it for her) Music really has a lot of power in it which can move anybody. I don’t known about the stone though.
There is a parable like story which the priests always say in the church….there was an old lady Eliammachedathi (that’s how old ppl are called in my land ) who went to the church one Sunday morning and heard the sermon about faith.
About the mountain moving towards u if u order it to with full faith in god! She returns home and applies this to the Neem tree (I ‘m just giving a name it could be any tree) that grew in her backyard which shed loads of leaves daily that had to be swept off.
Ya, the tree did not obey the lady and her reply went like this “ya I knew that it wouldn’t move”
But if as the bible says u have faith like the mustard seed then anything would happen.
That’s that and I think that is the power of music too.
People who can really sing well have a talent that has been god given…….singing and height I think are given to you. Others talents can be cultivated, that is as far as I believe though there are artificial ways of increasing height the latest being that rubber something which could be fitted into the shoes while walking….
So to end this music blog I wanted to quote something from Shakespeare which I can’t recollect now…….
I’ll write it down when it come to me ………
I miss traveling with my dad
After having joined for masters in the Hyderabad I have started traveling all by myself. My dad just came with me for the admissions and then it was me myself and my own journeys…….so then I get to know the adventures of commuting alone on a long distance and the travelers and the food and most of all the responsibility of taking care of myself and sometimes others too.
Now I am an experienced traveler at least from Cochin to Hyd and back. But it was wonderful going to places with daddy. He used to take care of everything and I needn’t worry at all. The responsibility part was taken care of and that is all in all in traveling.
Then while traveling good company makes the journey wonderful feel shorter and what not …in short it makes u happy at the end of the day when u get back to ur destination or what one could call home.
Now talking about, home as somebody says, “is with u always ………”…how come?
U carry it wherever u go …..thats what ………but that was something I read in a Australian play which we had to study for the commonwealth course. But that was partly true though not wholly.
So I write my travel blog kind of a thing because I’m just back from home. I’m just back from my home and I can’t believe that those 5 days went like that in a flash.
hi this me again ………….now i dont feel like typing so i thought i would do something ………….other than typing but i ended uptyping …

so one of the better forwards eh? people nowadays who use the net just know one important thing ot do either send forwards or delete forwards at sight….
i was one of those frantic forward senders once a upon a time. two years back i used to receive myriads od sundry forwards and i used to sent it out to ppl.
As a result i have had my id blocked in their mailboxes. i have accumulated a collection of pics and quotes….and i was always in touch wtih my friends. so much so that i night one of my cousin called my up late in the night and mildly chided me for spaming his mailbox with forwards…..
so that’s that and i went on without considering the warnings….
but it was fun ,…..friends of picked up my hobby and started following a chain of forwarding …..
u could collect a lot of email ids this way ………
what do i end up with ………i dont send forwards that way nowadays………..but i receive a lot …. screning most of the forwards, one comes to the conclusion that there are just a basic few ones like the primary colours and ppl cut copy and paste…..so that’s that………and that’s it
in this way i have received a number of the same doggie pics loads of animation and songs …..quotes..
this reminds of those cadbury’s chocolate ads u see………they have a stock of ads for each occasion like the one for rakhi was really good. it has been running for quite some time. like that there are friends day forward,.lovers specials .kids special.jokes ………..and some cute animations …………
there are too those irritating faux ones on donations which everyone has been receiving for quite some ………….
so thats that ………
have been using thats that for a long time my pet phrase for the blog………..
