She's Back ( From Tihar)

She’s Back ( From Tihar)

Hey, Arundhati is back . If you are blinking now, you probably have not read her God Of Small Things or you didn’t frequent the news some 3 months back. She is Arundhati Roy. The booker prize winner for her debut novel. You would certainly appreciate her if you read that book for its vivid descriptions and the style of her writing.

Then, she was an avid supporter of NBA ( Narmada Bajao Aandolan not National Basketball Association ) and a die-hard fan for the purpose of saving thousands of people getting washed out if that narmada dam was built. An essay on anti-dam on narmada called The Greater Common Good was fabulous.

After allowing herself to stay in the thiar prison for one day, in the contempt of court case, she is now back on questioning the happenings in Gujarat.The article called Democracy :Who’s she when she’s at home? in Outlook magazine. Read it !! Feel It !! You’ll agree with me that she is true.

Kamal – The Versatile Genius

Kamal – The Versatile Genius in doldrums:

Offlate Kamal, the versatile actor has been caught amidst a storm of gossips on his personal life. The media has gone to rock bottom level to write about his personal life based on assumptions and hearsay. This is not a healthy atmosphere. These scoops and gossips have been there since media originated but there were yellow magazines which used to write on these issues. Now, the scene is even bad. Kumudham, which was rated to be 2nd best magazine in Tamil was the first one to write a cover story on this KamalHassan’s personal issue.

I think we need to leave the personal issues apart and able to distinguish a person by his proffession. Instead, people are bothered more about personal issues.The most asked question in any Q&A section of any magazine is “Is Kamal going to divorce Sarika and is he going to marry Simran?”. After a long pause, Kamalhassan had finally met the press a day before and answered them partly saying the divorce with Sarika is true. Now that isn’t a end for this media and they are going to write long exaggerated behind-the-scenes stories based on this.

Please leave kamal and his family alone. Let us criticize only his acting . Else we will probably miss one of the great artisits of this country.

Who let these DOGS out

Who let these DOGS out :
I travel from my house located at the heart of chennai to a suburb called Tambaram for my office everyday which is some 20 Kms away. These days IT Companies are moving out of the Cities to establish their kingdoms where there is abundant suplly of water and other neccesities.

But the point isn’t that. The road through which I travel is called GST road which is a national highway.Since I travel in my bike , I have a chance to look at the world clearly, unlike those who travel in caged cars. Everyday with no exception, I see atleast 2 dogs die in the middle of the road, hit and run over by a lorry or by a car travlling at 90 Kms/hr. And sometimes till the next day, the dead body of the dog still lies there being run over by several hundreds of vehicles that pass by. Once or twice I had called up the Blue Cross to report this. I am unaware of the action which they had taken after that.

Today when I was on my way, a dog escaped death from a lorry by a few nano seconds. Whats the point?. There are still enough vehices in chennai to kill that poor dog. huh!!.
