Possession of Thirunangai

Have you ever wondered what would be the plight of a good looking girl or a women.

What if her mobile number was known to everyone in this world?  Phew, I am already sweating, thinking of what is happening for the past few weeks.

Recently had bought a yuphoria phone, and I got a new number from Airtel.

The day my number got activated. There was a strange ringing of phone which happened to be at 12am. Before I could pick the call got dropped and I had put my phone in silent mode.

The next day morning to my surprise, I had a large list of missed calls on mobile. I ignored them all, since I had not given my number to anyone. So knew for sure it was for someone else.

The same started repeating and that too late in the night. I got pissed off.

Later when I took help from truecaller I realised that the number was of a girl.
WhatsApp messages started to flow in.

I became so curious that I wanted to who was that so popular.

Yesterday was her Bday, wishes started to come in as sms messages from Facebook some from whatsapp.

One guy even sent a photo of the girl who had this number earlier with complete details.

Now I know why she had surrendered this number.

What was the lesson I learnt?
Before I get a new number, please check the number on trucaller ;)

You are sexy, you are different = Centre of attraction

It is late response from my side, still.
This is in response to few bloggers out there who supported or have been against this post


Let me start by saying, we as Men have a natural instinct to look at the opposite sex, that doesn’t actually mean that very look is equal to raping you in our tiny heads.

Just because of few rotten eggs, don’t brand the entire “MAN kind” to be rapists and we grope in public.

We as humans have 6 senses, Should I educate you, I am sure I don’t have to, you are mature enough to understand what you read and to even do a sensible writing.

I have few doubts in mind, hope women out there can help me clear it out

  1. Why do you wear a Bindi and a kajal?
  2. Why do you have to use a perfume/deodorant? Hopefully a majority of them use is my faith
  3. Why do few girls/women love to color their hair?
  4. Why do few girls/women love to wear a jean? you guys have a variety of dress in your wardrobe compared to men who can choose to wear a dhoti or pants or shirts, not big of variety you see.
  5. Why do few girls/women love to wear small skirts or short tops? Don’t get wild at me, my lovely girl friends
  6. Why do few girls/women choose to wear low-cut saris and low neck blouse?

You too have natural instincts, you are born to attract the opposite sex – Finally it boils down to sex and then the child, I know, I know – I am not going to discuss about that.

Be happy that what you are trying is actually getting better result, well I will not say it is certainly good for you but it does attract MEN.


Let me illustrate with an example

A herd of girls/women pass by in a public place, where men have out numbered women. Most Men choose to look at the most attractive women in that group, it could be just one or two or .. or all.  For those men, these women look attractive. Out of that most attractive women, she doesn’t have to dress inappropriate. She is a natural-born attractor of the opposite sex.

Like vice-versa Women do look at men, when he is attractive, don’t they.

A Joke, a forward mail

Son: Mom you are white, I am black, why?

Mom: I have been crazy while I was young, be happy that you don’t bark

The above joke is not to make women to be termed bad, bitchy. I am trying to say –  about the lifestyle the attitude, what they choose.

A girl good in her geography is weak in her history

– heard that long, long ago, while I was doing my college days. I believe that is one of the reasons why Indian men choose to have dull looking wife and a gorgeous girlfriend. May be, I still don’t know. Trying to figure out.

Half revealing is the most dangerous than revealing it full – you are sexy, you are different = centre on attraction.

I am not the best judge to say how you should dress in-appropriately – If you know the guys whom you hang around, but still you are vulnerable, just that you trust them while you hang around in close circles.  While in public, that is entirely a different scene. You are bound to see dogs, refer to the above joke.

A saying goes by “Your kid is not your kid, the moment he/she steps out of your home” meaning he/she is a common person. This line has to be read in between the lines. Hope you understand the statement.

For the writer who wrote that entire piece of an article – first hats off to that woman for her courage, but she didn’t get the fundamentals right.

Your statements are partly making the man kind guilty, and it is true. but don’t tell men not to use the sense “look” at women. The moment we use the sense called “Touch” we have crossed the limit. That is where you kid has to taught about respecting “Women”

Poor soul,  did want attention, she is lonely soul, ponder her love.

I too have women at home – Mother, Sisters, Wife and daughters. Teach them that quote about kid, so that they choose to do wisely and know that has reactions too.

Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future – source unknown.

Hope men will change, it is all with the parent how you bring up you child.

The next time you do show your assets, do know that I am not a saint.

I may choose to think any of these

  1. She can handle the situation, while in the case of my daughter or my friend’s daughter
  2. She want to attract the opposite sex. hmmmm….n hell no, no comments please
  3. poor soul needs attention, Ignore her, as I have already pondered love to my loved ones :P


HDFC net banking - Google ad services

Shocking !!! HDFC Net banking – Google ad service & others

Seriously I have no idea why a HDFC banking site would need to connect Google Ad service,  and few more others.


click on the image for a larger view

forgive my ignorance, Why

  1. Does HDFC Bank needs to connect to Google ad service? is it for Money?
  2. Is ZEDO.com part of HDFC net Banking?
  3. What is services.cyota.co.uk ?

Just like other Banking sites in India, Why can’t they run their own advertising services on their own domain.

002003004005 006


P.S: The connection was reset in the area where the advertisements are placed on HDFC banking site. The other services I still clueless.



Once there was… in Chennai

Once this was Chennai with full of advertisements all over, These photos are dated to September 2007.  Any where you turn around, half of the bricks where covered with Hoarding, So large building lost its ventilation.


It was a great pass time for people who travel by bus and being co-passengers in a vehicle. At the same time a huge distraction for the riders. I remember when my co-passengers would point at an advertisement and make huge statement, at times you could hardly notice. :'(


The point is advertisement hoarding are back, limited, so far so good. Hope the Government has control on the advertising hoarding in Chennai.

What would 4 KG of old books fetch?

You must be thinking what kind of post is this with this type of title.

My son was gaga over a week about the thing that school is offering notebooks for the weight of old books, Initially I ignored, then thought,  they are giving it to some school children who can’t afford to buy books.

For 4 KGS of old books, my son was offered a Classmate 180 pages note and a nice Classmate pencil.

It is an awesome marketing effort by  ITC “Classmate books” to enter each house of Chinmaya Annagar School students.

I still wonder, how Schools allow these kinds of activity. Earlier they resorted to buy books, by sharing pamphlets, at times forced us to buy the same book as we had two children studying in the same school.  Phew, fed up with these activities.  What are they trying to set in to these innocent young minds?

Red eyes, How? Kathakali

Kathakali - red eyes

Kathakali – red eyes

I am sure, you all wondered how the eyes become red, I thought it was glycerine, but later realized that it would wear of in minutes.

How do dance artist make their eyes red?

chunda seed

chunda seed

The answer is solanum anguivi lam a.k.a Chunda poo, they use the seed.

I was in a state of shock to see the seed, placed in the lower part of lid

chunda poo kuru - ottanThullal

chunda poo kuru – ottanThullal

I asked Ashan, doesn’t it hurt, for which he answered, You know what

” Your eyes become super cool, you need little practice to have seed under the lid. Once you remove the seed, the effect stays for an hour or so, and it becomes natural. Worried about Cataract – this is best medicine” and he laughs out loud.

Why set top box implementation in hurry?

Probably we are busy, our children want to watch Cartoon channel, Ladies don’t want to miss the never-ending saga.

There are a lot of projects which are moving in snail pace, but this process is with a deadline.

The worst part of these paid channels is that we continue to watch them with all the advertisements. Oh, OK HBO has new paid channels which boast of with no advertisements. Any more?

Earlier a lot of companies where making money, now the Government has a large share I guess in terms of taxes. Phew.

Looking at the above pictures does it make any sense to you.

We where at Eliphinstone Bridge Adyar,  yesterday evening. Bragadeesh Prasanna & your truly were in a discussion about the Theosophical Society Adyar, why it is still private and why the government should take control.

Before that this a response to the post of a CBCian member who made a post A travel to think

I appreciate her thought process, before being human, can you ever think of the nature, how long will we be exploiting the natures resources.

The photos which you see are dated 22/9/2009 and it belongs to vinodvv Photography, yes indeed my wedding, portraits & events online store. All rights reserved Copyright 2013. Sorry for that self promo.

If you looked at the photos who invaded that water-bed, The place was a natural reservoir. The moment I see these people, I don’t actually feel bad, but pity. The reason is that, It is their survival and their lively hood, And the bloody thing is that they compete with them selves and have pathetic life.

Let me illustrate with an example, I had a plumbing work to be done at my home, There is a place in Villivakkam where the Jantha stands and looks out for work, If the mastri picks up you are lucky, if not…

I was unlucky for the day. I picked up a guy after all the people have been chosen by the Mastri. He came along with me, saw what has to be done, He said, he had to buy the materials, I had to give him an advance, to buy materials.

My unlucky time was that I had a 500 rupee note and no other change, I had drop my son at school, so left to school. You know what happened?

NOTHING, he was habitual drunkard, as soon as he saw that 500, his cartoonish voice balloon said, “laddu thina asaiya”

If at all, if you intend to help them, educate their children, you help them, nothing will change. It is because of their attitude.

Well about the nature, It know what to do to man. If not man know how to take care of himself ;)

It is a wonderful view from above the bridge because of the construction to protect the water pipes, But have heard stories of illegal activities happening after 6:00PM, I can’t comment, unless verified. But I saw old aged men and women who use this place for a good walk.
