Interesting day !!!

It was the judgement day .
The results for the short story / poem writing contest were to be announced yesterday by Ms. Lavanya Mohan , author of Chutney case .
After all the mumbo jumbo I ve been thinking , to write for this contest , I came up with something decent enough – A New Leaf .
As any boy would do , I was asking my friend sruti (the organizer of the contest) , how she would look like . She claimed her to be a natural beauty and that she doesn’t have her hair straightened . I was really glad to hear that , because I just hate that straightened hair look. So with hopes high , (not for the result but for her) , I was waiting in the hall with my friends .
A strong – very strong , perfume odour filled the room and we all turned to the door to see her coming in . She was good . She had this bubbly bubbly kinda look . She looked more like a person with whom you would want to be friends with . Then , a formal introduction , and we all left the room for her to judge the entries without any disturbance .
My friend sruti needs a special mention . She was way too nervous . She was like ,”Ayyayo (OMG) , avanga varala (they ve not arrived yet) . Ayyayo I have to call them . Ayyayo , I don’t have his number and ayyayo I don’t have this and tat….” I bet she would have fainted if something went wrong , but luckily everything went well . But she had something else to ease her tension . She was actually all smiles after a particular something .(somethin – somethin ). Me and my friends had a really hard time standing in the wet floors of cbt (centre for bio-technologySmile with tongue out.
After an hour or so , she finished judging and the discussion started . I didn’t win any prize , but had both my poem and the story in the ‘honorable mention’ part . I was really happy for that . Konjam lighta kalaai chaanga (Teased me a bit), but that’s o.k.
Then , during the discussion , I started my performance , the thing I always did when someone talks in front of a crowd . Repeated nodding and smiling here and there , even if others didn’t feel that was funny . It was a way of responding and seeking attention and I kinda succeeded in it too . Managed to get her attention for a while .
She was not only bubbly , but smart too . Her spontaneity was just great . She managed to answer even the tricky questions very well , and the lame ones too Winking smile. But she did cross the line of being interesting to being mokka , for a while , but came back soon to the good part .
She was smart , funny , wonderful and good looking Open-mouthed smile.
Lavanya Mohan : A smarter version of Hasini (Jenilia in santhosh subramaniam).

Konjam overa irundha – kandukaa dheenga plz… And congrats sruti …Well done !!!Thank you Lavanya ….for accepting the invitation , it was great having you in our coll .
The day was a perfect package of mokka , jolls & insults – a pucca fun filled day Smile.

A New Leaf

I know why you did this and I do know why you are still alive .

I did a mistake. I knew you would want to do something like this, so I came to you . You did not respond and so I broke in and found you falling over. You reached for something that I could not see . I shouted your name, but you fell deep down inside you.
You were then brought to this hospital .
Did you seek death? I mean, you did, or else why would you have taken the pills? What I'm trying to ask is did you really want to die, or were you just trying to escape from something?

You hid everything, you kept it a secret, but I read your thoughts. You cried a lot. The insults, the betrayal , the loss and everything. You told all of your friends that you didn’t care, but I saw it in your eyes. They have slowly been turning gray. I was the only one , you allowed to talk about it. Now, every time I try, you become stiff or try to push me away. I just wanted to help you. But you eventually forgot me.

You also don't eat that much anymore and I know that you've been throwing up a lot. I can tell that you have lost a lot of weight and blood and something special. Don't think that I haven't seen the scars covering your legs and arms. Maybe you can hide these things from everyone else, but not from me. I can't believe that I didn't notice them sooner; there were so many. I tried to talk to you about them today, but, you kept away from me. 

This has been slowly growing over the past month, and I tried to tell some people, but I didn't . Of course, they would ask you right afterwards if there was a problem, and you, always, said no.

 I thought that you would listen to me now. If not now, then never. Realize that you are not fooling others, but you. Your parents love you, Isnt that enough?
They gave up trying to look out for you. I'm sorry to tell you, that it was you who ignored their love.
Well, I don't think that you should change one bit. I love you just the way you are, and that's why I noticed the things that other people didn't.

I found out , after you started isolating yourself, that you were moving towards the dark.

I know that you are different and wounded for being so.

I applaud you for being an individual and trying to be yourself, but I am also disappointed in you. If you wanted to, you could have still fought for you, claiming your place, the rightful place, the one you deserve . But you gave up so easily. I would have stood by you. But you forgot me.

No one deserves that  amount of pain, and it's easy to see why you are in the hospital right now.

I'm glad that you are not dead. I could not live without you. Your death would have made them win. It's a wretched thought, but they want you out. This is how they survive. Those heartless beings.
You have been slipping into the darkness because of the uniqueness. Those who aren’t ,pushed you in .This society had always ignored and teased people like you , Innovative and different . They don’t try to come out of the box.
Please, come back to the light and be who you were meant to be. Who you always have been.

I always look up to you. I will be with you from now . With me , you can succeed , break open the clutches  and be in light , always .
I know that it is hard, but soon you will win. You will be able to grow and win. You will meet good people, and gradually your life will change, for good .

You have a kind heart and amazing personality. That is what , keeps you alive .
I pity them for not knowing how truly great you are.
You may ask where I had been all these days.  As I told you I made a mistake . I shouldn’t have abandoned you even if you had  ignored me .
Call me by any name you want , faith / hope / will .
I promise that I will be with you and aid you in the journey ahead .
Lets start a new life .

Dying Ember

Lying down on the cold floor , Raja was staring at the moon lit sky through the holes in the straw ceiling of his old and damaged hut .
Raja is 13 years old and had always been a very nice kid. He always scores the first mark in his class and is well -known in the slum for his good nature. This nature of his had earned him so many friends .
He had inherited that from his parents who were always kind and never fought with any in that slum , where picking fights with others is a common thing . Not a single day passes without someone fighting . It may be for any reason , or not even one .
His father Muthu works as a daily wager under a mason . The recent rains have left him with no job and so no money . This had made others working with him to steal. He was also asked to join them , but he had told them he would never steal . He was trying for a job for nearly a month, but in vain .
His mother lakshmi , works as a maid in a nearby house . This had been the only source of income to their family. Lines of fatigue and sorrow ran through her face but she tried her best to conceal them with a smile . And as a good wife , she managed with what they got . She never complained .
They didn’t have money but they had love to fuel their life. Raja always felt happy for them .
“Raja! Take this tablet pa.” asked his mother reaching towards him with a glass full of water and the medicine .
Raja had been ill for nearly a month and the doctor in the nearby corp. hospital gave them a dozen colored tablets without even examining him.
He took his tablet and gulped so much water that he started to cough .
Then his mother gave him a bowl full of kanji .
Raja made a face on seeing that .
“Ma ! you have been giving me the same thing to eat for more than a month . I need something else to eat today .”
His mother gave back a smile. For a month they have been in a very bad situation and the recent price hikes have made onion and tomato far beyond their reach .
People in the slum have claimed that they soon will become rich man’s vegetables and they will never be able to use them as they usually did.
Understanding that from his mother’s expression , he started eating it . He was so weak to even hold the bowl , so his mother feeded him .
“Tomorrow is Pongal . Prepare something different atleast tomorrow ma..please ” , mumbled raja .
His mother nodded with a smile and told him that she would bring something from the house where she worked .
Happy with thoughts of getting to eat good food tomorrow , he fell asleep .

Sun rays protruding through the holes woke him up . To his surprise he found his parents staring at him with their lips curved for a big Good morning smile .
“Get up and take bath soon …all that you asked for is here. ”
He was so happy that he was going to eat something good finally . He rushed up to take bath.
He didn’t feel weak . Probably that medicine had made wonders . After that they started praying, but his eyes went to the food that was served there as an offering to the God .
Then he started enjoying the food . He started with the Sakkara Pongal , and his widened when he had his first gulp . It was great. He was so glad . Its been a long time . Then , he went on for the idlies and the vadaa . He ate as much as he could and really enjoyed every bite .
“This is the best Pongal , Ma !”
His parents gave him a big hug .
It was then , a very old man came by their house .
“Come on Raja . I will give you everything you want . Come soon , its already late” , said the old man .
His parents asked him to go . And there was something around him , like a rope , that pulled him towards the old man . But , he didn’t feel bad , he was happy . He bid farewell to his parents and went with the old man .
….
It was still dark when Lakshmi gave out a huge scream of sorrow . Tears came running down their cheeks. Lakshmi could not take it . Her cries , brought everyone in that slum to their hut . The Crowd peered in , to see Muthu and Lakshmi crying over a motionless body . It was Raja.
He passed away happily in his sleep after a great dream.

Ophiuchus and the Mayan Calendar

This is an article by Rush Allen
I would like you to consider the September 11, 2001 WTC Disaster in New York City in light of the highlighted words that most people are in agreement with. We seem to be oblivious to the fact that events like the 9-11 WTC event do not happen without a transcendent dimension. The focus on the 2012 debate is another Westernized rationalization; what Jenkins says happens when "you translate a multidimensional, advanced, wholistic paradigm into a linear, materialistic, fragmented framework of understanding."  If you are going to properly develop the 2012 debate on your web site, I suggest that you begin to bring the transcendent dimension into the topic, otherwise, your site will simply become a philosophical library for words that do not carry any meaning. 

I have applied the fundamental thesis of the Maya 2012 date, the Denderah Zodiac virgin birth, the pyramids of Egypt, and a direct correlation of the tomb artifacts of Tutankhamun to the 9-11 WTC event. All of these are also displayed together with the scriptures of the Abrahamic theologies of the Jews, Christians, and Muslims, and the ancient asterisms of the gods; what Plato called the embroidery of the heavens. When the  transcendent dimensions are applied holistically to the events, the  9-11 WTC event joins the Sodom and Gomorrah, Armageddon, and 13 Baktun traditions into one holistic apocalypse. This is precisely what the ancients had predicted. The fact that it comes 11 years early for the 2012 event may be a result of numerical nuances in the 13 Baktun calculations, or it may be a clear duality ( 1+1) calling forth the two dimensions. But, there is no question that all of these prophesies predict an event of cosmic proportions, after which human existence will not be the same. 

The Maya stories may be the easiest to interpret, for they depict the birth of First Father from the mouth of First Mother. These are celestial events that are directly seen in the placement of the "dark rift" at Aquila that represents the mouth of Quetzalcoatl. Beyond the mouth of Quetzalcoatl is the center of the galaxy (Cosmic Womb). Stella 25 from Izapa is an exact replication of the time and celestial orientation of the WTC when the destruction began (http://www.siloam.net/jenkins/7macaw3.gif), and it tells the time of the beginning of the next 13 Baktun. 

At the instant the first red rays of the sun touched the top of the antenna on WTC 1, the planet Saturn was on the zenith meridian at the head of the bull, Taurus, and Pluto was directly on the nadir meridian on the hip of Hun Hunahpu (Ophiuchus). In other words, the Armageddon at New York City coincided precisely with nearly every great "time prophecy" for the "moment of the first occasion" that have been passed on in monuments and legends for the last 13 Baktun. There is little question that the people of the Americas saw a new beginning, and a rebirth in the cosmos. That is precisely what the ancients had forecast. 

I bring this to your attention, because what Jenkins says is clearly true in this case; A reduction of what was translated will result. The reduction is so severe that none of the spiritual message is even being considered by the modern "wizards" of ancient prophecy. September 11, 2001 is another of many preludes that have been occurring in accordance with the ancient Mayan and Egyptian calendars, and with the Abrahamic scriptures. The reason why the correlation is so precise, is because the spirits the calendars and scriptures that were addressed are the same forces that are dramatically affecting the current events of the world. Forget Nostrodamus and "eyeballs" in the Pacific. When the Twin Towers of the modern Babel fall to the ground, we must retain some reference to sincerity with regard to what the ancients dedicated their lives to. The dawn sacrifice of Quetzalcoatl that caused the creation to begin with the "First Sun Rise" is happening all around us, as we read the futile debates over enigmatic esoteric meanings. Reality was the dimension of the ancient Ball Court. Reality is still the dimension of the modern cataclysm. 

So, as you "SCOOP" the world, it might be worth paying attention to the current events in light of the ancient wisdom. I would disagree with Jenkins on the idea that "we live in an age of extreme materialism where progress is measured by scientific advancement and our increased ability to manipulate the physical domain."  This is only half truth. I doubt if anyone can accept that the great monolithic monuments were not tokens to manipulate the physical domain. The missing truth is that we have not become materialistic as a way of progress, we have become anti-spiritual as a means to avoid fear of the unknown. It is the fear of the unknown, that creates the irrational expressions of superstitious judgments in modern science. Those same fears are what brought the Twin Towers of the WTC to the ground. The scientific communities are afraid of the spiritual dimensions, and are oblivious to the possibilities of ignored spiritual messages. And the spiritual communities are afraid of the punishment for material arrogance because they are overwhelmed by the spiritual dimension. These two fears clash in the Maya Ball Courts like the Hero Twins and the Lords of Xibalba. You do not have to be a 33rd Degree Mason to recognize the similarities between the Twin Towers and the sons of Hun Hunahpu. But, the meaning behind the events is spiritual, and that physical dimension is the forbidden city of the dead lords and gods. 

See  Liberty Shines Her Light Against the Smoke of Hell  to see the direct correlation between the events above and below New York City on September 11, 2001, and decide for yourself. As you read the essay, imagine that you are a puppeteer and you are manipulating the "spiritual dimension" by the manipulation of the "physical dimension" as you pull the strings on the celestial twins. The dualities of the event are mind-boggling; day "11", two jets, two towers, two brothers in the stars above, two fathers in the stars below, two ruling planets of the Underworld (Hades) and Time (Saturn), and on and on. The ancestors came up from the grave on September 11, 2001, and they screamed out to the manipulators of the spiritual and physical dimensions and said, "PAY ATTENTION!" On that morning, Venus crossed the boundary between Cancer and Leo, and the shadow of the earth spilled out of the cup of Aquarius. Coincidence? Could be. But, it was forecast over 5,000 years ago, and I doubt if the prophets knew that Manhattan Island would be sold for $18 in beads.

Nostradmus and Ophiuchus

13=4=time and closure - the 4 rotating fan blade effect - the swastika, etc. Nostradmus worked with all 13 constellations when making astrological predictions which takes us to Ophiuchus (pronounced off-ee-YOO-cuss) - the 'Serpent Holder' - who is represented as a man with a snake coiled around his waist. He holds the head of the snake in his left hand and its tail in his right hand. This again takes us to the universal archetype of snake/serpent/reptilian signifying DNA and the human biogenetic experiment out of the Middle East, replete with extraterrestrial references. 








Ophiuchus is one of the 88 known constellations and was also one of the 48 listed by Ptolemy. It is a large constellation located around the celestial equator between Aquila, Serpens and Hercules, northwest of the center of the Milky Way. The southern part lies between Scorpius to the west and Sagittarius to the east. Of the 13 zodiacal constellations (constellations that contain the Sun during the course of the year), Ophiuchus is the only one not counted as an astrological sign. 

In connecting the astrological 'dots', remember all that you've read here about the Eye of the Milky Way Galaxy, 2012 and the Ouroboros. Ouroboros is an ancient alchemy symbol depicting a snake or dragon [DNA] swallowing its own tail, constantly creating itself and forming a circle. It is the Wheel of Time - The Alchemy Wheel - 12 Around 1 to manifest grid programs that give the illusion of linear time allowing souls to experience emotions.

Ophiuchus: The 13th Zodiac Sign

Mythology

There exist a number of theories as to whom the figure represents.

The most recent interpretation is that the figure represents the healer Asclepius, who learned the secrets of keeping death at bay after observing one serpent bringing another healing herbs. To prevent the entire human race from becoming immortal under Asclepius' care, Zeus killed him with a bolt of lightning, but later placed his image in the heavens to honor his good works. It has also been noted that the constellation Ophiuchus is in close proximity in the sky to that of Sagittarius, which has at times been believed to represent Chiron (the mentor of Asclepius and many other Greek demigods), though Chiron was originally associated with the constellation Centaurus.

Another possibility is that the figure represents the Trojan priest Laocoön, who was killed by a pair of sea serpents sent by the gods after he warned the Trojans not to accept the Trojan Horse. This event was also memorialized by the sculptors Agesander, Athenodoros, and Polydorus in the famous marble sculpture Laocoön and his Sons, which stands in the Vatican Museums.

A third possibility is Apollo wrestling with the Python to take control of the oracle at Delphi.

There is also the story of Phorbas, a Thessalonikan who rescued the people of the island of Rhodes from a plague of serpents and was granted a place in the sky in honor of this deed.

Yet another possibility is the biblical story of Adam, who is wrestling with the serpent on a more basic level metaphorically, as even the Hebrew Qaballa has a number of man which basically embodies the meaning of the man wrestling with the serpent as half of his natural pre-disposition(358).


Johannes Kepler's drawing depicting the location of the stella nova in the foot of Ophiuchus.

Astrology

In the 2nd century, Ptolemy listed 29 stars in Ophiuchus. He recognized that most of those stars were north of the ecliptic (the path of the Sun through the sky); however, four of them (today known as 36 Oph, 42 ? Oph, 44 Oph, and 51 Oph) he recognized as being south of the ecliptic. Therefore, the Sun passed through the constellation of Ophiuchus as it was recognized by Ptolemy. However, Ophiuchus is not a zodiacal sign in Western astrology due to a historical system in which 12 signs divided equally into 30 degrees each are vital. At present, the Sun is in Ophiuchus from November 30 to December 17.

Since Ophiuchus isn't recognized in astrology, it has no astrological symbol, unlike the other twelve. However, the 1997 PlayStation video game Final Fantasy Tactics (and later the Final Fantasy compilation Ivalice Alliance, a spin-off from Tactics), where the Zodiacs are central to the story, a symbol for Ophiuchus (there referred to by its Latin name Serpentarius) had been made: a U with a single wavy line, the serpent, running across the center. The Final Fantasy esper, Zodiark, is linked to this constellation.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ophiuchus     


Ophiuchus holds a huge snake, Serpens, in both hands as shown in the Atlas Coelestis of John Flamsteed. Serpens is unique in being divided into two halves.





Ophiuchus, the Snake Charmer, is the thirteenth of the twelve constellations of the Zodiac. It is the forgotten constellation, perhaps, for the Sun actually spends more time before the stars of Ophiuchus (19 days) than it does in neighboring Scorpius (6 days). Also, the stars in this area of the sky are less than magnificent. There are only four stars that exceed a rating of magnitude three. Alpha, Ras Alhague, is a magnitude 2.1 star somewhat less than midway on the line from Vega toward Antares. Eta Ophiuchi, Zeta, and Beta follow at 2.6, 2.7 and 2.9 magnitude. These stars can be found above Scorpius and below the stars of Hercules. Aquila is to the east. The center of the constellation crosses the meridian at about eleven p.m. in early July.

For binocular viewing there are six star clusters in this area of the sky, all with Messier numbers: 9, 10, 12, 14, 19 and 62. Another, M107, is dimmer and would require a telescope for study. Still other globular clusters exist in this region, making 22 in all. 

A number of double stars are here, too, including Sabik (Eta-Ophiuchi), a pair of third-magnitude stars separated by one second. 70-Ophiuchi is another interesting multiple star, which José Olivarez has considered in his Observations column. The colors of the stars are said to be yellow and purple. This star system was discovered in 1779 by Sir William Herschel. It is part of an olden asterism made up with other stars in this region of Ophiuchus. The stars form the letter V that suggests the Hyades in Taurus, the Bull. In 1777, a Polish astronomer, Abbé Poczobut of Wilna, asked the French Academy to honor the last Polish king, King Stanislaus Poniatowski, with a constellation. The designation did not last, however, although “Poniatowski's Bull” may still be found on some star charts.

Æsculapius was an immortal man who had been schooled by the centaur Chiron in the arts of botany and medicine. So he was knowledgeable of the various herbs and plants and a student of nature. One day, it is said, he was in the house of a friend when he killed a snake. He watched in astonishment when another snake slithered into the room with a particular herb in its mouth and with it restored the slain reptile to life. Recognizing the plant, Æsculapius soon had learned to use its mystical powers to heal the sick and resurrect the dead. It is from this history and from the ability of a snake to cast off its skin and assume a new revitalization that serpents have become symbols for healing. The staff of Æsculapius, with a snake coiling about the rod, is well known in today's medicine. Unfortunately, this symbol is often confused with the caduceus of Mercury, which is a doubly-winged wand entwined by two snakes. Truly, however, the symbol of Mercury is the symbol of messengers.

Æsculapius, the first doctor, sailed on the famous voyage of the Argonauts in search of the Golden Fleece. Following the journey, he continued to heal the sick and to advance the practice of medicine. On the death of Orion, he was about to attempt to restore the life of this great hero when Pluto, lord of the underworld, intervened. Pluto reasoned that his realm would decline if Æsculapius were allowed to revive the dead. He appealed to his brother Jupiter to agree that death should be the ultimate end of mortal man, not to be trifled with even by the most skilled of physicians. Jupiter, king of the gods, struck Æsculapius with a thunderbolt and ended his life on Earth. But in tribute to the accomplishments and skill of the great physician, Jupiter placed him among the stars, where today he is known as Ophiuchus, the Serpent Bearer. 

Antiquated star maps show a larger constellation, depicting the physician clutching the serpent that wraps about his body or shoulders. Now, however, the serpent itself is represented and is given two identities. Stars to the west are those of the head, Serpens Caput, while the tail section, Serpens Cauda, writhes eastward toward Aquila, above the shield of Scutum. 

One of the most interesting objects that you can't see in Ophiuchus is the Pipe nebula. On dark, clear nights you won't see it because this absorption nebula lies in front of the spectacular Milky Way. It is one of the largest dark-cloud formations that can (cannot?) be seen from the Northern Hemisphere.

The Ring of Infinite powers

Just a short story . I was too bored , so thought of writing this ......and yes ! its quite childish ...

Karthik was on his way home after a tiring day in college. The classes that he had were absolutely horrible. But now he was happy , listening to his favorite movie soundtracks and enjoying the view from  the bus  47-A . The bus was slowly pacing over the bridge that runs across the brightly lit shopping malls of T. Nagar, gorgeously decorated to attract the crowd.
It was just then, everything started to change. The lights flickered and went out, leaving the whole area dark .  The bridge which was heavily crowded a few moments back, was now left stranded with only the 47-A moving very slowly. Everyone in the bus looked frozen and it was dead silent .He could not even listen to the roaring of the bus engine.  Everything around was strange.
“Get Ready “, came a voice out of the darkness.  He turned towards the window, straining his eyes to find out where it came from. There was nothing.
“There is no time - they are coming”, came the voice again but this time with more seriousness .
“Get Ready for what ?”, mumbled karthik .
He had no time to think , when the bus jolted .  It turned freezing cold, the chillness running through his spin . The hairs at the back of his neck stood up. Something dark was creeping around .He didn’t know what to do.
“You are in danger Karthik, you should be careful .You are different from others and they will come for you”, his friend Nithya and Kishore had told him this morning. He just ignored, thinking that they were trying to make fun of him. He remember that.
Another jolt and he heard the rear window shattering to pieces. Something lurched in and he saw bony white fingers reaching inside to get a hold on something.
He was so scared, his body was trembling with fear. Being strong willed and stubborn, something inside him wanted to fight. He got hold of that feeling and tried to chase away the darkness. He started to feel more and more warm. Then he opened his eyes and saw something unbelievable. Blue glistening flames emerged from his fingers and running through the upper arch of the front seat he was holding.  Very soon , the whole bus was covered in a blue flame providing a barrier.
Something let out a huge scream. He turned back and saw a shadow of a woman outside the rear window. He figured it to be a woman from the long hair that was floating in the air upright. Its dark blood red eyes made him shiver. It tried to break in through the barrier, but in vain.
“ Finally! I’ve found you. You are as powerful as told .The fun begins now!” - cackled the shadow. Then, it let out a huge laughter as though it had found what it had been searching for years, and vanished.
“Well Done!”, came the voice. A hooded dark figure came near and gave him a ring and ordered him to wear it. There was something in the voice that made him obey. He did as said, and the hooded figure moved into the darkness.
There was a streak of lightning and there she was, staring at him in rage. It was his friend Nithya. Karthik ran towards her but an arrow came straight to his head from her. He dodged and the arrow went above him tearing the air around.
“Why did you do that? I thought u loved me. “, exclaimed karthik , his voice breaking in shock  and sorrow .She let out a bellow of laughter .
“Why would I love you ? All that had happened between us was for the ring . The ring that will guide its owner to the epitome of power ” , she said and let out another arrow . A gleaming  arrow came towards him .
Struck down by betrayal, he stood there, tears running down his cheek. He could not bear the truth. The arrow pierced his chest and he fell to the ground uttering his last words, “I still love you .”
She then removed the ring from his finger and vanished from that place in another streak of lightning.
Nithya was in her house, studying . It was then she heard someone knocking at the door. She went down and opened to see Karthik standing there with his hands glowing. But he looked different. His eyes were burning in rage. Then came a green flash, leaving her no time to react, it hit her hard and she fell down in pain and shock.
“I knew what you were…I have got the ring and I don’t want you to share the power that I am going to get…so DIE ” - roared Karthik .
Her face turned red in anger, “I loved you but you..…Curse you …curse you, you pathetic animal ”.
Another flash and she laid there motion less.
Karthik stood there watching her die. Then something misty creeped around and engulfed him. A bulky huge figure stepped out of the mist and gave out a cruel laughter. It was Kishore .
“Both of you under estimated me. None of you knew I could shape shift. My powers are far more stronger than yours. I have tricked you both and your souls will remain clutched in the eternal fires of anger and hatred. With both of now dead, I shall be the master of all powers   “, bawled Kishore .
Something then hit kishore in his head and he roared in pain closing his eyes.
He opened his eyes to find himself in a bus. His head ached.
“Oh! GOD . I was dreaming again, Its those audiobooks I have been listening to”
Karthik , then smiled , but his head still ached on hitting the front seat - hard , when the driver had pressed the brakes . He then got down and walked to his house smiling .

Finally !!!

Finally after a long time of confusion I have decided .

It all started when my friend told me about the blog service provider tumblr.com . At first I liked it a lot .To list out its outstanding features ,

  1. The ultimate cool – theme garden
  2. Efficient and easy to use dashboard .
  3. Possibility to integrate it with facebook and twitter in a very easy way .
  4. Facility to upload high-res photos and to create albums.
  5. Cool posting features  ., etc ..

Tumblr_1294817971160

The first thing I had problems with is the commenting feature . Tumblr does not provide you with a default commenting service as in blogger . The only way is that you have to sign in to disqus.com  which is some kind of comment outsourcing .

Second thing is its search bar which is a total disaster and is totally inefficient .

Then , the dashboard. Though it has some nice features , the entries of the blogs I follow flood my dashboard . Tumblr is claimed to be something that’s between fb and twitter , but I definitely hate that dashboard . And it has very less popularity among Indians . None of the foreigners write , they just share photos and it is very hard to find a post without obscenity , which I felt was really annoying . But yes , there are good ones . Example :http://theanimalblog.tumblr.com/ and http://priyaprakash.tumblr.com/ . If you are a good photographer then tumblr is the right place for you and people there appreciate and like seeing pictures  than to read .

And finally , the position I ve earned in the web world . I search for my name and I could find my blog right in the first page . I was so worried about losing this . But now I have decided . I am sticking with blogger and I will find ways to integrate it with fb .

Tumblr is a good blog service provider but it needs a lot more to compete with blogger or wordpress .

I love blogger Smile

A gr8 and a different beginning !!

I have always wanted to have a walk through the misty roads early morning when the bright beast was still asleep . I didnt want it to wake up and ruin the adventure that i had planned for the new year’s first day .
I started early from my home . The streets were just like i wanted them to be , dark , misty and silent . It felt like it was hiding something and it wanted me to play with it to seek that lays beyond . I accepted its request for the game . I just strolled through , with my whole body dancing and my teeth shaking with joy of being out in the cold .
I was playing for a long time and yet didnt find anything . I was just about to accept my failure when i heard footsteps and faint sound of barks and grunt wines . I got my hope back and started moving towards the sound . The mist knowing that i ve come close moved away revealing dark figures of a man and a dog . He too was enjoying the serenity just like me . I went to him and wished him a very happy new year . His calm face lit up and he smiled back .His dog started swaying its tail forcing away the mist . Its amber eyes stared at the new stranger talking to his master . I bent down with a smile and took my hands closer , it bent slowly reaching for my hands . I think it liked me . I combed its dark gentle fur , it licked my hands in return . It felt like it was wishing me a happy year ahead .It felt great . Then i started moving away from them . After a few heartbeats , the dog turned back and barked . I think it meant , we’ll meet again .
The mist that was playing with me for such a long time , started to move away . I was puzzled . Then , with the light that fell on my face , i realized that the bright beast has woken up from its sleep and is now claiming its territory back .
I then walked through strange roads that i havent been before . I heard the repeated Kaaw , kaaw…of the crows . Guess they didnt like a stranger coming in their lands . Crows near my house , just walks into the hall , kaaw’s for something to eat , and my mother who always talks with them , gives them something to eat and they peck and fly away . I think it treated us to be friends . It joins us , whenever we sit to eat .
Then met new people , mostly old ones . Security ppl , auto driver , milk maids and a few working in a plant nursery . The milk maid - a very old lady , got scared when i went close to her with my hands lifted for a hand shake . She stared at me in fear that i would steal something from her . I understood that , and my lips curled for a friendly smile and wished her . She gave a huge sigh of relief and smiled back . I was still laughing about that , when i went by nursery . They were so glad to hear someone wishing them so early and we parted with a hand shake . I then realized that my palm had become a bit rough . I lifted them to see mud and browned all over . I was quite happy about that and remember the ad - “Kara - Nalladhudhan” .
It was a way too different experience to walk the streets in early morning and wishing to strange people and i was glad to have made them smile atleast for a moment . The bright beast then came to its full power and smiled at me , saying playtime’s over . I then returned back home happily to share the experience with my family . A great and a different beginning for a new year :-)

New Year greetings :-)

New Year...
means new hope for everything we want and wish,
allowing the illusions and dreams to flow without fear,
giving us a new opportunity for starting a new life
in which all the mistakes made will be part of all what we have learned through our life,
making us feel safer and more able to face any problem,
becoming wiser and stronger for starting the new road...

When the New Year starts,
don't look back,
just look forward,
thinking it will bring to you just the best of life! 

Happy New Year!
