Rajni Fans supporting AIADMK?

This article in tamil says so.
I wonder how far this is true.It would be really nice if the crazy fans resorted to a payback this time for the forthcoming Rajni movie - Sivaji. A payback of a different kind.Just as they had blindly supported any crap movie bearing their thalaivar's name in it(think of Baba),they should plainly boycott this movie and leave it to fend for itself.

Rajni followers are the most pathetic,more than their hero actually.They wait before the start of every election hoping in their wildest dreams that their 'GOD' would finally enter the political scene,only to be disappointed this time too,but then what they don't understand is,their guy doesn't have in him,what it takes to be a leader.This is not my personal opinion,but a well-proved phenomenon beyond doubt.The confused state that Rajni always seems to be in and the Sanyasi life lover, resorting to the mountains of the north,not to forget the cryptic way he speaks to the public sending a hundred different feelers to different listeners,seems atypical of any leadership traits.The fact that he is merely an actor(a good one at that though) and is not really known for any of his directorial skills in cinema,stands testimony to how far he can make his ideas work and how much he can coordinate a bunch of people!

This is what I envision of him.He could possibly turn into an ascetic and try to keep a tenth of his fan following with him,on the likes of those many million Saadhus or probably get back to his senses and try contributing positively to the growth of Tamil cinema and himself by playing roles suited to his age and looks!

But,if hes going to continue to act like college romeos,running around trees with forthcoming young heroines.may be even Baby shamili's daughter,its not going to last long!The fans are starting to question his antics and this stupidity may not go too far and too long!

V for Vendetta? or V for Venda da ?

If you had 8 U.S dollars with you to spend,you should rather think of donating it to charity or may be just buying 8 essential objects from your dollar store.

V for Vendetta, a movie which should have been christened P for peter or M for Mary for the best intepretation of the G for galeej and L for local audience like us....
I am completely irritated with such highly hyped high fundae movies,finally turning out to be nothing more than a huge damp squib.

The storyline was no more than the good old Amitabh or Rajni starrers where the evil guy has commited these crimes in the past and the Hero who escapes from one of the olden day incident(similar to those 100s of tamil movies,the fire scene from the slashback flashes atleast 5 times),comes back with a mask to take revenge.It actually sounds like a "Sudhesi" type story suited for Captain.

The highfalutin flowery British english might have been the greatest strengths of the movie,but then what the hell?Who can sit through 2 hours of lengthy monologues cleverly dumped with carefully chosen high frequency words from the'Barron's wordlist'?
The first instance of this kind of a never-ending dialogue,that I could remember of was the introduction of the character "V".Every single word from the wordlist under the letter 'V' was used.

V: This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is it vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished, as the once vital voice of the verisimilitude now venerates what they once vilified. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose vis-à-vis an introduction, and so it is my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.

To describe it in the same flavor,I would say that it was an
apish, artificial, artsy, artsy-craftsy, assumed, awkward, campy, chichi, conceited, contrived, counterfeit, counterfeited, faked, false, feigned, fraud, ham, hammy, highfalutin, hollow, imitated, insincere, melodramatic, ostentatious, overdone, pedantic, phoney, phony, playacting, pompous, precious, pretended, pretentious, put-on, schmaltzy, self-conscious, shallow, sham, shammed, simulated, spurious, stiff, stilted, studied, superficial, theatrical, unnatural
form of dialogue delivery which makes one wonder for the first few seconds and this wonderful feeling slowly starts stinking and drowning one into that blackhole of boredom.

I don't want to elaborate anymore.But one thing comes to my mind;may be I should start sticking to V for vendakka type tamil movies only!

BJP would be celebrating if the below mentioned news caption was true!
And we could end up saving an election almost :)

The actual article behind that caption was

UPA govt to collapse after assembly polls: Venkaiah

March 25, 2006 20:06 IST

The Bharatiya Janata Party on Saturday asked its party men to gear up for mid-term polls for Lok Sabha as the "Congress led United Progressive Alliance government would collapse after the coming assembly elections in five states."

"The days of UPA government are numbered and it will fall after the assembly elections in five states," party leader M Venkaiah Naidu claimed while addressing party workers here at a function to mark the assuming of office by newly appointed Karnataka unit president D V Sadananda Gouda.

The party appointed its Mangalore Lok Sabha member Gouda to head the state unit replacing Jagadish Shettar, who has joined the BJP-Janata Dal (Secular) coalition ministry in the state.

Naidu exhorted party men to maintain discipline and follow the party's constitution strictly.

He termed Congress president Sonia Gandhi's resignation from her Lok Sabha seat and National Advisory Council as a "big drama" saying, "She quit fearing disqualification."

BJP National General Secretary T Ghelot, incharge of party affairs in Karnataka, hailed the budget presented by the BJP-JDS government in the state.

Deputy Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa, who presented the budget, said he would soon lead a delegation to Gujarat to study power sector reforms in that state which has ensured 18-hour power supply in rural areas.
The new state unit president Gouda assured that he would work towards strengthening the party at grassroots level, taking workers into confidence.

Going to a huge national and international audience,Rediff should definitely make sure they don't come up with such idiocy from time to time.

Just a thought!
Every blogger would accept this - 'At some point of time,he or she has been one of those comment crazy blogger,who checks almost every hour to see if anybody has left a comment,even if it were to be a silly smiley or a spamming comment'.

Infact there were times,when I used to be irritated by some comments,wherein there was no value being added to the blog or the audience.But nowadays,I guess the commentors(is that even word?) are striking back.I visit many good thematic blogs and I am surprised to find very few responses and acknowledging comments even on prominent and thought-provoking news items.

I wonder what the sudden change of heart of the commentor is due to?
Is it because the number of blogs have increased multifolds and once cant keep commenting in every one of them or because the process of commenting been made as difficult as possible with word verification,sentence verification,fingerprint identification and whatnot?
Whatever it is,it is a tad worrysome when you find that your blog has around 100 or 200 pagehits a day and the average length of time a viewer spends on the blog is atleast 2 or 3 minutes(which is what it would take to read 1 post of mine on an average),but still there is no feedback from the audience.

Not that it is going the deter anyone's mindset to blog,but it brings in a slight feeling of being taken for granted :).People(not necessarily me) write stuff breaking their brains and someone just gets to take a peek at it for free?
May be,its time for some prominent bloggers to experiment the system followed by some of the online file sharing forums -
'Only if you comment,thou shall be allowed to view the contents or download any files'
The difference in the case of blogs should be -
'Only if you comment relevantly to the previous post,thou shall be allowed to view the contents of this post'.

One part of the brain says - 'Being commentless/feedbackless is way better than getting those stupid
"I agree with you.Pls visit my blog at @#$$#@.blogspot.com" or
"you got a wonderful blog here.you may want to visit this site for 'loan consolidation'"

Chennai Right to Information Initiative

Its always been easy to 'Talk' or 'Walk' through issues,but how many times have we decided to really 'talk the talk' or 'walk the walk'?I wouldn't blame myself or anyone else for that matter for being this way.it is not that we have been ingrained with a 'don't care' attitude towards the happenings around us,it is just that our circumstances don't allow us to actively participate in benevolent,selfless activities that make sure things get done the right way.

Not many opportunities arise to be a part of a genuine,revolutionary attempt at being a little responsible towards the society that we live in.The initiative below is ,in my humble opinion, the best chance to be a part of constructive thinking;to be a part of something that might make one feel happy at the end of the day for having proved that one's life is not mere existence but something useful!

The Chennai Right to Information Initiative is an initiative by a very good friend of mine - Guruprasad.I wish him all success and hope to be a part of it much more actively someday!

Kindly spare a few minutes to go through the write-up.
If it inspires you and you would like to know more about it,please attend the one-hour meeting that has been organized at 5 PM on Sunday, March 26 at

Altius IAS Study Circle
27, Eldams Road
Chennai 600018
Contact: Guru (98407 65030)
Lokesh ( 98410 54009)

The meeting will be to bring together people interested in this initiative. The idea outlined in the document will be explained and discussed. Please take a little time off to read the document and drop in to the meeting to know more and contribute your opinion. If you know anyone who might be interested in this initiative, please forward this info. At this early stage, we are depending on word of mouth for spreading information about this initiative.

Tendulkar - The walking Orthopedy ya!

IBNLive : Sachin Tendulkar will return is a nice article highlighting the fact that Tendulkar will definitely strike back.
But what was so eye-catchy was this picture which showed the various forms of injuries that the genius has been enduring and still trying to act as if everythings fine.

There is another article clarifying the "Boo" issue.Whatever the truth may be,it is really sad to realise that Sachin is going through a lot of pain and not complaining anything!
This guy should be christened the 'Father of Indian Cricket' for all these years of dedication and mainly for being untainted and maintaining a 'role model' status for all the youngsters both in the team and outside his area of expertise.
We've all seen many 'walking encyclopedias' ,I guess Sachin's a walking 'Orthopedy' ya!

I had predicted this long long ago..here

Awesome....!What more can Google do to help the masses?
I am beginning to think of other areas that they could very well dabble into and break the stereotyped way things have been made to work..

One such thing is 'Online stock news/trading' websites.While there are a number of websites which give insight into the company tickers and their performance,I don't find them very useful to gain a complete picture of the company's performance.How about a comprehensive webpage with vivid charts and solid predictions about the company based on previous day/week's data and some input from the experts/business analysts?Also,a handy tool for day-trading should be a great effort!

What looks like a very simple website is infact a magical gateway to an entirely ravishing world of information about any company with vivid charts and news ranging from analyst ratings to published articles to amateur views from blogs.

First thing I checked was the quote for AMD and I should admit that I was thoroughly impressed!Quite characteristic of Google,the website was devoid of colourful backgrounds and pop-up ads.One thing that seemed missing was the ads,which I think might creep in sometime soon.

Looking forward to many interesting snapshots of news from this website and ofcourse the end goal of...Making money from the cornucopia of information about stocks/companies/market!

One concerning thing that comes to my mind is...Now google would clearly be able to understand what companies I am interested to know more about and even about what stocks I have invested in.It might not be long when Google would send an email,suggesting what stocks would be worth selling or buying from the technology r pharma sector!

Bird flew leaving behind EGG-sample

Year 2008:
An asian says to another:
Those are chicken eggs,you know?
Few years ago,we used to make omelettes and what-not out of them.

Is this picture an illustration of Bird Flu - Example?

Is there an assessment of how the Bird Flue has changed the dynamics of poultry products consumption?
Next it is the feline world awaiting the CAT-astrophe!

2006 Nobel "P"s prize

Guess these guys got confused between PEACE and 'P's.

Chennai: The World Federation of Tamil Youth (WFTY) on Tuesday said it has nominated Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa for the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize.

The federation has nominated Jayalalithaa’s name from India, Sharjah and the US, for her "dedicated efforts in ushering Peace, Performance, Progressiveness, Productivity, Partnership and Prosperity for the people of the state during the last five years," its president Dr Vijay G Prabhakar told reporters here.

"We would also be celebrating April 14, the Tamil New Year as Selvi J Jayalalithaa day in 15 countries, highlighting the progress of Tamil Nadu under her leadership," he said.

The Federation’s Indian chapter president Dr R Mylvaganan presented a DVD titled "J Governance" produced by the organisation.

Dr Giri Rengasami, advisor to the Indian chapter, said Jayalalithaa was the first Chief Minister of India whose nomination for the award has been sent to the Norwegian Nobel Institute.

Theres going to be a hiatus in my blogging.
Thats because of my engagement with official/personal reasons.I am at Singapore since the beginning of this month and shall be here till the 3rd week of march.
The city is simply awesome.Seems as if the city as a whole is one big Mall for shopping.The MRT/taxis remind me of Indian MRT/electric trains and autos.
