manadhil thondriya sindhanai sidharal idhu. Paarthu vittu ‘ada de’ solbarvargal solla laam. Thuppu pavargalum comments boxil thuppi vittu sellalaam.

vimaana padayin sirappu saagasamaam
pathirikayil sonnaargal.
veetil irundhu etti paarthen!
Vimaanangal paLLi siraargal pola vadivam amaithu
vaanil oviyam ittu kondirundhana

Sattre thaazha kaaga kootangal
vimaana saagasathai CTRL+C CTRL+V seyya try panni kondu irundhana!
Vadivam ennamo sari thaan!! aanaal, vimaanangal vitta
pugai trail mattum missing!

en mooLayil bulb adithu, “Ada de!” endren

Satrru innum thaazha, ore oru puraa
than siragai aati aati, kazhugai pola ner aaki
kaagangal seidha kurumbai seyya muyarchidhadhu!
Manam adhil thannaiyum marandhu layithadhu

“Adhu sari!” endren

Note: thanks ttm. Sila local slangaa eppadi nalla tamila solradhunnu theriyala.

Ethanai vidhangalil manidhargal

Filed under: Life as I know it — Celia @ 10:50 am

A woman standing on the middle of the road trying to cross and go past…

1) Most men on cars/bikes/buses go past without caring.
2) Few men hesitate, wonder whether they might need to stop (and thereby lose their precious few seconds) but don’t stop coz no one else does the same.
3) Few men don’t know what to do. Should they stop? Should they move? The driver coming behind these peoples’ vehicle would have a helluva time.
4) Few men stop, and then wave at the woman.. “asking her to hurry”. After all, they have a done a great deal of service and the woman shouldn’t be delaying their time.
5) Few men stop, stare and smile at the woman. The woman walks past, they keep staring.. Other vehicles start honking.
6) Few men, stop, smile. The woman walks past. They go their way…

Same road crossing.. same woman.. same time of the day..
People!!!

(P.S : The word men has been generalized here. The same can happen with woman drivers and when a man is trying to cross. Thank you Aparna, for pointing this out.)

Tomato Chutney

This is not the usual tomato chutney that we have with our chapati. My mom makes this for idlis and its scores over the infamous getti chutney.

I don’t know why men think that it is macho to beat their wives. Is it really so? Why should one hit someone to prove that they are superior?

Andrea Bocelli – Let this be our prayer

Filed under: Poems — Celia @ 5:27 pm

Was listening to this great piece of lyrics and felt like sharing it. This has bi-lingual content. I am not sure whether the english part is just the translation of it.. but it makes it sound all the more good. My favorite part has been bolded 🙂

I pray you’ll be our eyes, and watch us where we go.
And help us to be wise in times when we don’t know
Let this be our prayer, when we lose our way
Lead us to the place, guide us with your grace
To a place where we’ll be safe

La luce che tu hai
I pray we’ll find your light
nel cuore restera
and hold it in our hearts.
a ricordarci che
When stars go out each night,
eterna stella sei

The light you have
I pray we’ll find your light
will be in the heart
and hold it in our hearts.
to remember us that
When stars go out each night,
you are eternal star
Nella mia preghiera
Let this be our prayer
quanta fede c’e
when shadows fill our day

How much faith there’s
Let this be our prayer
in my prayer
when shadows fill our day
Lead us to a place, guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we’ll be safe

Sognamo un mondo senza piu violenza
un mondo di giustizia e di speranza
Ognuno dia la mano al suo vicino
Simbolo di pace, di fraternita

We dream a world without violence
a world of justice and faith.
Everyone gives the hand to his neighbours
Symbol of peace, of fraternity
La forza che ci da
We ask that life be kind
e il desiderio che
and watch us from above
ognuno trovi amor
We hope each soul will find
intorno e dentro se
another soul to love

The force his gives us
We ask that life be kind
is wish that
and watch us from above
everyone finds love
We hope each soul will find
around and inside
another soul to love
Let this be our prayer
Let this be our prayer, just like every child

Need to find a place, guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we’ll be safe
Need to find a place, guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we’ll be safe

E la fede che
hai acceso in noi,
sento che ci salvera

It’s the faith
you light in us
I feel it will save us

Happy Easter!!

Filed under: Poems — Celia @ 5:21 pm

Wish you all a very happy Easter!! Hallelujah! The Lord lives today and forever!!

And thanks a lot for those of you who sent easter wishes to me. I was planning to post a good easter recipe, but couldn’t do one due to time constraints.

There’s one song that we sang today and which I had liked singing since my kinder garden. It was a wednesday song for us.. “Follow on”. Here are the lyrics.
