90s Kids !! – The Luckiest Generation of Humans on Earth

The Memories and lifetime experiences of a 90’s kid : 

90’s Nostalgia!!:

Some of the interesting incidents or memories of our Childhood are as follows :

There were days when my Grandma or sometimes my Mom used to take all the cooked rice and then mix it with the Spicy South Indian Chilli Curry (Kaara Kozhambu) in a big Vessel. We will sit on the terrace under the moonlight and she will make a ball out of the mixed rice and each one of us in the Family (both kids and grownups) will have our turn to have our piece of it !! We would also check if we (all three of us) ask for the rice balls to my dad,to whom he will give !! That was a very big competition 😂!! That too if it was a Power cut day, it will be vera level !! Those were golden days. That Feel and taste of Happiness is never equal to the Feel you get today in the Buffet system in a Barbeque or a Five Star Hotel !! After Power cut when power comes back !!! There was competition in who blows out the candle First 😂😂😂😂 !!

Those school days when we used to buy Graph paper, World and India Maps for 50 Paise !! That too it had various divisions like Political Map, Rivers Map etc etc.Marking places correctly in that Map was like an achievement for us 😂😂😂. Getting 10 out of 10 in that Map in Geography exam felt great !!

Pen fight, XO game, Red – Green – Black – Blue game (Also called Four cups), Bingo, Name – Place – Thing, Book cricket, Hand cricket, Leg touch, Arm Fight, Thumb fight, Bus Game ( 1234Bus6789Bus11121314Bus16171819Bus etc 😍🤗 – Multiples of 5 is called Bus !! If someone says that number they are out !! They cannot say multiples of 5 !! Game is played with tapping each other’s palm continuously ), Hangman, Hollywood, Raja -Rani – Police – Thief, Three roses, Ringa Ringa Roses 😂😂 etc etc

One best thing is when it becomes too late to cook lunch !! We will go to school early and our mom will bring lunch in the afternoon and will place it in a place with our names on the lunch bag and we have to find our bag from those Lunch bag collection kept there by many moms !! I can find it easily because my mom will differentiate it to make it easy for me to find it easily by something !! She will add a Smiley clip to the lunch bag sort of things !!

Boxes are the best things to have in school, that too if it’s a Magnetic box or a Step box with many floors on it 😂😂👌 !! We will have Fans for sure !! Dai I will try Opening and closing that once da  !! Please da !! That tap tap sound while closing the magnetic pencil box 😂😂!  Boxes were of different designs !! Whatever design you need like Bus, Animals etc etc !! Erasers too !! They look like fruits and smell like it too 😍 !! If someone breaks our refill pen in pen fight also !! We write with refill alone 😂😂 !! There were a lot of pen types – Refill pen, Mountain pen, Gel pen, stick pen,Hero Pen (Actually a gifting pen ),  marker pen,sketch pen, Multi refill pen,invisible ink writing pen which if torch applied on it will show the words 😍🔥 !! Crayons, Water Colour paints, Oil paints were used for Painting and drawing competitions 😍😍 !! I was a king of it at those times 😎💯

Drawing Amoeba diagram was the most funful event 😂😂😂 !! Whole class Tok ! Tok ! Tok ! Tok !Tok ! sound 😂😂😂

Writing our Friends name in letter writing in English exam is where we proved our loyalty !! 😂😂😅😍😍🔥

We feel like a comrade when we go to the other class to get back our Class’s duster which they took !! There were days when Class leader writes our name on the board and we don’t care and continue to talk and get (++) / (Over talking) Next to our name 😂😂😂 !! We will get beaten up by teacher in groups 😂😂 !!! Sometimes those monsters will show all the anger from house on us !! Will make all class stand up for no reason and everyone will get equal share of beating on the Palm !! That is very not funny !! There are different types of People’s reaction while getting beaten !! Some will remove their hand sharply when wooden scale comes near the Palm !! Someone will cry even before teacher hits !! Some will be like Robo !! Come on give me more 😂😂 !! Some will be like doing sounds !! Aaaaaaahnnnnnn !! Ooooooooooo !! Aaaaaaahnnnnnn !! 😂😂😂😂 Some will catch the scale itself and will shout Miss!! Miss!! Miss !!! Miss !! 😂😂😂 Some Legends will be like Today My Mom will meet the Principal and You are done today !! Some Ultra legends !! Somehow you have to come out from the School !! I know through which way you go home !! Let’s see !! Hnnnnnnnn !! Let’s see 😂😂 Chota Rowdys 😂 !! 

When a Question is asked in a Quiz show on TV and we answered it correctly 😂😂😂 !! We feel like “Call me Master” from now !! That too we will say “Mokka Question uh” !! If I had been there in the Show, All Price money would have come to our home now !! 😂😂 My Mom literally used to say –  Dai !! You Apply for Crorepati da !! You can do it !!😂😂

We used to buy Horlicks, Boost, Complan, Maltova etc to get the additional gifts like Cricket bat, box, shuttle bat, Magnetic Darts and Targets, Drinking bottles etc but not for drinking them actually !! There will be a fight with siblings also, to whom that belongs to !! The gift !! As usual goes to the youngest one😅 !! We used to eat raw Boost powder without anyone noticing 😋😋😋 !!

We used to collect Soda bottle Caps, Maggi wrappers, Britannia biscuit wrappers to get the gifts as mentioned in the wrappers !! but never ever achieved it once 😅😂😂😂 !!

TamilNadu can never forget this line “Siriyavar Periyavar Anaivarum Suvaithidum Nijam Paaku” and the Head turns into MoM, Dad, Grandpa, Grandma, boy child, girl child etc etc 😂😂 That Ad 😂😂 !! Nijam Paaku Ad and also Gopal Tooth Powder Ad 😂😂 !! Vasanth and Ko Ad 😂😂 torture like today’s Saravana stores Ad 😅

One exciting thing !! Near doors !! we will keep our each leg on each side of the wall where each of the door is attached and climb high with hands and legs on each side of the wall and will show off like we are spider man 😂

While filling a form we get that awkward feeling !! Don’t know why 😂😂 !! What is your gender ? Male or Female !! 😂😂 Really bro 🤔😂 !! Think or Confirm once 😂😂 !!

Flying once in an Aeroplane was a lifetime Dream for all 90’s kids !! I have achieved it 🤗 !! We used to run to the terrace or to the road and watch whenever an Aeroplane is moving closely 🔥😍

The additional Art things which comes with Chutti Vikatan Book !! We used to build Ships, Bus, Taj Mahal and many other things with the ready made Templates they gave us !! And instructions will be inside the book on how to assemble it 😍 !! The Feel of an Engineer we got at that time !! Some books like Magic Pot and all were awesome !!

We believed “Akka Maga Akka Maga” song was really performed by Michael Jackson 😂😂😂🎶🎶

We used to walk over our Grandpa/ Father’s body to relieve their Body pain 😂😂😅 !! But not like In Devarmagan movie 😂😂😷😂

Smell of ink, petrol, paint and Rain 😍😍 were like woaaahhhhh !! For us 

We used to Bind our books and wrap our Notebooks with Brownsheets !! Then comes the best part !! Labels 😍😍 !! Dora Labels, Cricket Labels, Cartoon Labels, etc etc !! 🔥🤗 We feel like we are rich if we had the best Label !! Also there were collection of stickers on white card which they sell for 10 rupees !! We used to stick it all over the Brownsheet decorating it 😂😂 !! The weirdest People are those who use Sandal colour sheet instead of brown colour sheets for notebook !!😂😂 WTF man !! What is that saani colour sheet !! Some Legends use Newspapers as Brownsheets !! We lend our brownsheet to them !! Here Machan Take it !! I have more in my home !! Vallal Feel !!

Sharing Food at lunch is the best thing Ever !! We never ever eat our own Food !! If it’s Maggi or yippee we are done !! There is no lunch for that day !! When we open our box it will fly to every bench out there !! There was a day  when I forgot to bring my tiffin box !! And my mom did not notice !! I got the Tiffin Box lid from one friend and everyone gave a part of each of their meal !! Chapati from one !! Side dish from one !! Maggi from one !! Kaara Kuzhambu rice from one !! 😍😍 Ultimate Friendship days 😍 Maximum all last bench tiffin boxes will become empty even before the lunch period !! 😅

Also there were some Psychos who will not eat if we touch their tiffin box 😂😂 !! We bullied some like that 😂😂 !! The Most Gethu thing to happen in your School life is your brother’s teacher calling  you to say some mischievous things your brother did !! And that gethu feel front of all his class members 😂😂 !!

That too People around used to say Free Operation ah !! Mass da !! 😂😂

There were People who will literally eat Pencil lead, Balpam, chockpiece, even Papers etc etc ! May be Donkeys got human birth I guess !!

There were days when we used to play Hide and Seek on the roads with Area Friends. Bambaram, Goli Champions were there in our gang !! Kite was the best thing to happen in my childhood !! Manja !! Bottleload !! Lottaiyi !! Deal !! Chikdeal !! Vaare vaa Awesome words !! Best thing to do with neighborhood friends !! We made rivals in that !! I know a house but not the name of that guy !! That house had Bharat cements paint in it !! We used to call him Bharat Cements guy !! He was very good kite player !! We had both Kite players and kite runners !! We used to run houses to houses to catch the kite which got dealed off !! Sometimes we will be lucky and get a lot of dealed kites when we come and see in the terrace in the mornings !! It will take great skills to roll back the string of the dealed kite !! There are specialists available for it !! Fast Hands !! My Neighbourhood guy was a King of rolling the strings and handling the lottaiyi 😎. Summer times were kite times 🔥  We used to play Snakes and Ladders, Ludo and one Women’s game (which boys also will play) with jalli kal (small stones used while building houses). The Procedure is like all the jalli (small stones) will be scattered on the floor. The player who is playing has to pick a stone throw it in the air and then gather as much stone as possible and catch back the stone which was thrown up !! Likewise the player should collect all the stones !! If he/she misses to catch it !! Then it’s next players turn !! The person who gets all the stones at the end will be the winner !! I used to play this with the neighborhood girls!!😝😝😝😂😂😂😅

Seven Stones, kuli pandhu, Terrace cricket are the best things to do after school everyday !!

Paper boats we used to make during rainy times 😍 and make it flow in the rainy waters !! That too Kathi kappal will never stand straight in water !!

There was a tailor shop in my Area and the owner of which used to give free Notebooks, Sketches and other accessories to area kids and he will conduct some Games on independence day !! We waited eagerly for that every year !! Slow cycling race and Sack race was the best for boys !! We would hire Hour Cycle for participating in it !! Girls had lemon in the spoon and Musical Chairs !! 

Hour Cycle – This is the best 90’s Memory. One who never tried hour Cycle cannot say him/her as a 90’s kid !! We used to get cycle at 5 rupees per hour and we will roam all through our area like we are the Security Guard of our Area !! We will plan for each place in our Area to explore each day with the Hour Cycle !! We will drive the cycle for some 5 minutes extra than the actual one hour to get that satisfaction!! We will not have the heart to give back the cycle when the time gets over !! We had plans like Machan !! One day we will go to near by Area da !! We will pick Cycle from there and will drive away with it here da !! He can’t find out na !! But it was actually not like that 😅 The Cycle shop owner used to give cycles only if he knows our mom/dad or our friends Mom/dad 😂😂 !! There was a time when we drove out cycle for more than 2 hrs but paid for only 1 hr !! And Ran away leaving a friend as “Panayam”(Bait) there and said we will bring money from home and he will be here till then !! But then Everyone started running in different directions and the Owner can’t follow us !! From that day we will not go through that street where that cycle shop was there, when our moms asked us to go to a shop on that street!! We would hide our face and go !! Till now that Cycle shop is there in that area !! 😂😂 But Hour cycles are stopped long ago 😅😔 !! 

Cartoons are the best thing to happen during the 90’s:

Also division of 0.5 mm lead users and 0.7 mm lead users 😂 Geometry Box 😍 – Why it has Divider actually still don’t know – A Mystery never Solved 😂😂😅 !! There are sellers who come to our streets and ring bell !! Like selling Milk ice, Semiya ice, Orange ice, Kulfi, Panjumittai, Pori urundai etc !! There were days when we collect bottles, Metal things to give to a person who comes in cycle and gives semiya and biscuits in exchange of that !! There were some coloured Papads ( Appalam ) which we used to wear as a ring in all our 10 fingers and show off !! Later eat it one by one !!

There were times when gambling things started coming in the shops !! We have to buy a ticket for 50 paise and it will have a number written on it like 1 to even 200. What number we get in that ticket we will get that much rupees from shop owner !! But it was similar to the Google pay of today !! That ticket also used to cheat us with “Better luck next time” !! There was a day when myself and my brothers won nearly 200 rupees from the 5 rupees we got from my grandma !! We felt like we were the King of Gambling at the time literally 😂😂 !! We used to say it to neighbourhood friends and school friends like hey !! Bow to the king of Gambling !! I won 200 rupees da you small boy !! Call me King from now on and learn from me 😂😂 !! 

We also had a savings account in nearby shops where we will give 2 or 5 rupees daily to that shop owner and he will record it in a rose colour Card !! Those were the Banks for us at that time !! We feel proud and take 100 rupees out of our savings and show it to our mom proudly !! 

In those times Daily Bata was 2 rupees for me and for that 2 rupees, I have to go to shop more than 5 times to buy household things for my mom and that too have to make some sad expressions in my face to make her feel pity on me to give that to me and it was more than enough for us to eat something good while coming from school. But nowadays school kids are taking 100 to 1000 rupees per day !! 😅

We used to wake up at 5 AM everyday to go and play cricket with Area Annas, Uncle’s and even kids !! There was no age difference check in playing cricket !! If U can play a single u are selected !! That time we used to go in Triples in a dabba oata Bicycle !! I used to take fours also !! And Area Friends used to say Anna Mass nae neenga !! 4 per vachi Epdi nae ivlo easy ah oatringa !! I will be like “Oatuvumulla” – (Vadivelu dialogue which he says in Thillalangadi while driving brakeless bike 😂😂)

Bet Matches with Area Opponents were the most Hectic ones !! Like we have to win anyhow !! We set umpires also for that 😂😂 !! Machan Machan Thaniya Gavanikirom da !! Edha panniru da 😂😂!! That too if you take a wicket or if you score a Four or six  !! You will become famous 🔥 One 4 or 6 is good but Scoring 10 Singles was very bad at that time !! 😂😂 People calculate your ability through 4s and 6s and not your Shots from Book or 20 Ball 20 runs !! There were times when we have to make the bat owner to bat at last to prevent him from taking his bat and leave !! It happens !! Some guys after their Gaugee (turn got over) !! Will say machan I said to my Mom that I will come back at 8 da !! It’s already 8 da !! Give me the bat da I have to go !! This happens only after they get out !! There were people who wants to bat first and bowl first as well but sorry I can’t do fielding legs will pain 😡 !! Ramakrishna Ground was our Paradise at that times 😍!! There was a day when I scored 50 runs in a bet match and i felt like Dhoni at that day !! Because my teammates used to praise me like that 😂😂 !! But after joining Engineering, everything stopped !! No Early morning crickets !! Friends got separated by areas !! Split up !! Still Feel Goosebumps when I think of those cricketing days memories !! Even though it was Gully Cricket !! The Happiness we have despite the Age Gap was Awesome !!

We used to annoy our siblings by switching off the lights when they are in the bathroom !! 😂 Saying that power is cut ra come out soon ra 😂😂 !! Or else ghost will catch you !! Sometimes Mom or Dad will be there in the bathroom and it will be followed by Slipper shots to us 😂😂😂 !!

We used to play shuttle – cork on roads (which is Called Badminton Professionally ) and Football while it rains !! 😍😍

Playing PlayStation 2 in Uncle’s shop was the best past time in the evenings after School !! We used to get 10 rupees from our Mom and we would go to Uncle’s Game shop which was actually his home !! He had many TVs  in which he would Play the Game for us and we had to wait till One TV among them gets free !! It was 5 rupees per hour at that time !! We used to play Smack down with a simple Joystick , But for other games like Football, Cricket, GTA, Narnia,Mortal Kombat, Incredibles,etc we have to Play in Analog joystick which has two rotating sticks as extra fitting to joystick and that was 10 rupees per hour !! That Only rich people will play we would think !! For us Smackdown with gang of 6 was the Dream video Game at that time  !! Made new friends also from Smackdown game !! My Middle brother was the most difficult one to defeat in Smackdown !! He has Fastest Hands !! He can do a lot of wizard tricks with the “🔼” and “⏺”  buttons !! L1 was the Smack button 😅 First timers never know that actually that is the button to use with knowledge!! If you press it all times !! You are gone !! Smack ah thaduthu summa pichi eduthurvom 😂😂😂 !!

Buying a Remote controlled Wireless car was a long dream !! We would expect it as a gift for every birthday !! We also had train sets where we have to arrange the tracks in proper order and a battery controlled train will be made to pass over it !!

90’s kids of South India can never forget the Tsunami of 2004 !! Literally everyone were on the street that whole day waiting for something very bad to happen !! But a great escape for me and all !! It was a very bad memory 😔😔 !! But since I was a Kid at that time !! I was not much aware at that time !! Was playful and torturing my parents at that time too 😅😅😂 !! 

School kids will never forget the rectangular bag with clips attached instead of the Zips as of today 😅😍😍🔥 That tik tik sound we get while closing the bag 😍😍😍 !!

Daily Signature in Diary 😂😂 !! For which the class teacher do over scenes if we forget to get it one day 😂😂 !! We do signs actually in Diary in place of Parents signature because that’s an emergency situation yaar 😝😂 !! Language teachers are the worst !! That too Tamil teacher if she is a lady we are done !! She will beat with a long stick not on our Palm but on the knuckles (Top side of the hand / Other side to the palm 😡!! ) Worst Teachers are Tamil teachers !! They are actually trained bouncers 😂😂 !!

Computers were like dream for 90’s kids !! Had many Humiliating situations from neighbour hood kids who had Computers !! They would call us to play in their computer for sometime !! Which we would not ask them !! But after going to their home they will play with computer for a long time and then they will say my mom will scold da !! We used it for a long time !! Tomorrow I will give u a chance to play !! And it goes on !! If we ask our parents for computers at that time 😂😂 all good slippers and broomsticks will get damaged 😂😂 !! We would think of switching families also at those days for Computer 😂😂 !! But finally realizing I can’t give my mom, dad and my little bros for a Cheap computer !! I will get it one day after earning a lot of money !! But my Family is mine !! I can’t give them to anyone !! Doing Word art and Clip art were the best things we do in computer lab class 😂😂 !! During those times I had a fear that someone may ask me to switch on the Computer because seriously I never know how to 😂 !! Then one day my school best friend taught me that to stop my embarrassment !! They even used to show movies in large screens in my school once in 3 months !! I have watched Chronicles of Narnia !! Part 1 there and also Slumdog millionaire half 😂😂 that was an awesome incident !! No one in school knew about the movie I guess !! 😂😂 I loved that  movie that much that I hummed Jai ho !! For a long long time after that movie while walking on the road !! Even Though it was a Hindi movie !! Pinball game, chess and Card games (Solitaire) were the best in Computers !! Multiplayer games with friends/siblings are like if it is a Car Racing game – directions will be handled by one Person and Powerup, Accelerating, braking will be handled by the other one !! 😍

There were days when I used to cry when my mom and dad used to lie to me like they took me from a dust bin / exchanged me for another child / adopted me etc to see my reaction !! When my brothers grew up, I joined them in teasing my brothers !! It happens till now !! Jothi Nagar is the place where your real parents live da 😂😂 !! That too my little bro cried the whole day for it non-stop once !!😂😂

Bursting crackers and watching Gilli and Pokiri movie in Sun TV were all a routine for us on Diwali 😍😍 !!

That too who buys more crackers was a competition with neighbourhood kids 😂😂 !! We used to take all the paper remains of crackers at midnight from neighbourhood house and pile it in front of our house to show them we burst the most and then followed by slipper and belt shots from MOM for making her clean neighbourhood people’s Cracker Garbage 😂😂 !! The first day I saw 60 shots bursting through the sky was a dream moment for me 😍😍 !! Me and My brothers after completing our quota !! We will sit on our tank top on the terrace and watch the awesome view of crackers bursting  in the Sky everywhere around My City 😍😍 !! We would get down only if my mom comes with belt again 😂😂 !!

Best of all is the Gun !! Roll Caps inserted into the gun to start shootout 😂 But most of us prefer scratching it on the floor and tapping the role with a stone to burst it instead of the gun 😅

The best topic 90’s kids had to discuss was about Ghosts !! Even people who will never talk also will come with something if it’s a Ghost talk 😂😂😍😍 !! I love ghost talks to the core 😂😂 !! In my 8th standard I guess we had a great ‘Oalful’ ghost chat in a temple where we went for Thirukkural Competition !! 😍😍😂😂🔥🔥👻 👻

Also once in Hyderabad days !! A dream ghost night !! Scared the shit out of everyone 😂😂😂😂👌👌 # Vishnu and me were there in both Ghost Memories 😂😂 # I had a ghost video captured live in a Temple Festival in Kovilpatti, Tirunelveli !! It’s somewhere in my Laptop 🤔 Hope I will find it !! 😅😁 !! Ghost talks are the best one to have and bond !! A chair full of dress or a window curtain or just a simple thing can scare the shit out of u at times at midnight 😂😂 !! The Moments when we run from Bed to bathroom and bathroom to bed at midnight 😂😂 !! That too for me and all if I remove my spectacles I see ghosts around me everywhere 😂😂👌😂😂!! All Ghost movies, Ghost documentaries which they show every Sunday night at 10 PM are litf especially Haunted in Discovery channel !! Aavigal aayiram in jaya tv !! Kutram nadanthathu Enna in Vijay TV !! 🔥 😍😍 More than Ghosts – Poochandi and paavadaikaari !! are the terms used by Moms to make their kids eat their food properly 😂😂 !! Eat everything !! else Poochandi will take you away !! 😂😂 And we fell for that ! How dumb were we !! Can’t even think 😂😂

There are some dumb things also which 90’s kids do !! Like keeping Feather of Peacock inside a book and thinking that it will double or triple soon !! Also we thought Money Plant literally produces money 😂😂😂 !! I had a big question in my childhood for a long time how Earth is standing without support ??!! Got it at 8 th standard I guess – Gravity Concept 😎🔥, Newton bro !! U rock !! !! 😂😂 Theory of Relativity 😍😍 – Time is not constant it varies from each other’s place and perspective !! Einstein bro u too Rock !! 😅😂😂

There are a lot of questions inside me which got solved gradually by time !! I used to wonder about many things in the night !! Listening to the tick tock sound of the Clock at midnight !! That Was the BGM for me to think about something seriously !! Believing Jee Boom Baa pencil is real and what we draw comes out real ! is the worst thing done by a 90’s kid !! Once an uncle told me that I should carry a plant along with me always around to replace the Oxygen I waste 😅

Goa was the Dream destination for every 90’s kid !! Because after watching Tamil dubbed hangover !! People used to say Goa will look like Las Vegas 😂😂 !! A Poor Man’s Las Vegas !! Layman’s Bangkok 😂😂 !! They used to say Machan !! Goa is the place where all the cool girls will be there 😂 !! “GOA – A Bull Shit story manufacturer” by Kenny Sebastian was literally the story we used to hear from people who come back from your from GOA !! 😅

Atlast he will finish it off with One “U Can’t see me” !! and One Attitude Adjustment Smack 😂 !! Undertaker was the nightmare guy for us 😂😂 7 Life he had !! He will die in a match and come back again 😂😂 Adengappa !! 😂 Kane, Edge, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Goldberg, Brocklesnar, Hardy Brothers, CM Punk 😎🔥✨ etc etc The best Villain award Viper “Randy Orton” 😂😂 RKO !! 

Phones were introduced to us after 2004’s actually !! My Family’s First mobile phone was Reliance Phone which is small black colour keypad phone with yellow coloured display !! It had 2 awesome games Dizzy Jump and Stone age !! 🔥 At that time we use phones only for Games and Call !! But Landlines are major source of communication !! Mobile phones were used only for emergency purposes or in case of travel !! Next came Nokia 1100 !! Snake Game, Space impact and Bounce 😍😍🔥 !! That Phone should be handled very Carefully !! Because if we drop it we would make a very large hole on the floor !! May be sometimes earthquake may come !! Chances of Tsunami too 😅😂😂 !! Best Phone !! Then we moved on to GFive Phone !! Got introduced to internet there !! I used to wonder what is that Earth/globe symbol in the phone mentioned as GPRS !! Why that option is actually in the phone when no one is using it !! Gradually got to know that GPRS is the internet !! Then we moved on to Samsung Flip phone 😍 My Mom’s first Phone !! There I got to play all the Java games !! Mission impossible, Prince of persia ! sands of time, Some Car racing games !! Whatever phone we bought in the 90’s first we check for Car race, Snake game and Cricket game 😂😂 !! Then gradually Moved to Smart Phones – GPRS became 2G then 3G -} 4g -} Now 5G. Smartphones bought more Cons to us than Pros !! Gaming, Selfies, Connection to world (Socialization) improved but addictions became more !!

After Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram !! There is a Mirage like Life of 90’s kids was done and dusted  !! And 2K kids took over with Musically and TikToks 😂😂😂 !! But No !! Memes rule the world now !! And Maximum Meme Creators are 90’s kids !! I was also one of them before !! 90’kids are everywhere !! 

We used to go to a shop to take a good picture of our Family together !! We used to dress up and everything !! Even sometimes boys are made to wear girl dresses and girls are made to wear boy dresses and photos were taken !! But nowadays after waking up without even brushing or bathing !! 

People are taking Selfies and posting it in Instagram !! We used to write diaries daily !! Nowadays the same is done in WhatsApp status ! Insta  and fb posts !! At those times we have to recharge for 49 rupees per month to get 100 SMS/per day !! And we know how hard it to maintain 100 SMS per day !! If u get over excited and send messages without counting then ur quota is gone in the morning itself 😂 !! You have to feel bad the whole day for not talking to ur crush or friends !! 😂😂 Bechaari!! We also had booster recharges also !! To give us extra SMS counts !! We recharge for 10 rupees and speak for 10 days but now 😂😂 even 500 not enough for one day !! So nowadays Unlimited packs came into the picture !! We used to save all girls name as boy name in our APPA phone 😂😂😅👌🔥 And even if they will call to APPA’s Phone !! APPA will be like Dai un friend ! Sathish call panra paaru !! 😂😂 Adhu Sathish illa Shakila nu terinja avlo dhan 😂😂 just uh missuh 😂😂 !! Close escapes 😂😂!! But one thing never changed till now !! There are some idiots who will call u and say machan don’t study da !! I have not even read a chapter da 😂😂 !! He will say this with a book in his hand and after studying everything, during his second revision !! Till now it never changed i can see it happening for my brother also 😂😂😡 !!

Dermi Cool !! And Nycil Powders !! were the Sun ray Reflector at that time !! Everyone used only Ponds white beauty !! Both men and women 😅 !! 

If we go to a marriage it is like a dream place for us !! We used to arrange a stack of chairs one over the other and sit at the top of 10 stacked chairs !! Feel like the throne !! Also we fight in who sits on it !! 🔥🔥 A 90’s live Game of Thrones !! The Food in a Marriage is the best !! All relatives ( friends, uncles, brothers etc) used to serve the food with a smiling face to all people coming to marriage !! We wait for Payasam and ice cream! Some cry for ice-cream in the beginning itself !! We used to see people who eat betel leaf and betel nuts as the weird ones !! It would be very awkward when our Mom/Dad introduces to a new person as our close relative like (Mama or chitappa or periyappa) and they will ask without even thinking “Enna Theriyatha Kanna” we will be like Yov ! This is the first time I am seeing your loser face !! Why torturing me 😅😂😂 !! 

We don’t like to walk down the stairs !! We slide along 😂😂 !! Sometimes pretty awkwards fall 😂😂 !! With Nose breaks 😂 ! Head breaks 😂😂

 I had stitches 4 times in my head because of falling down in slippery places like outside bathrooms, Stairs, Also Once while playing cricket I fell down while catching the ball and a fat guy sat on my face literally and I got scolding and lot of stitches at the back of my head for such a shitty incident 😂😂!!

Maximum !! We used to buy classmate notebook to read the last Page of it for scientific facts and General knowledge things !! We used to press the Safety pin through the outer layer of our skin and say to friends like !! Paathiya Mass ah !! En Veera Vaazhkaila ithellam sagajam 😂😅😎🔥 !! We have tried to balance the switches between OFF and ON position in the flat middle way 😂😂 !!

While Haircut in barber shop we used to sit on a Plank of wood to match our height with the seat in the shop !! We would ask him to shave our cheeks for fun !! 😂😂 If I shave only I will get beard like Baba’s !! A false belief 😂😂 !!

There were legendary Tamil dubbed movies – Shaolin soccer, Kungfu hustle, Rush hour, Harry Potter etc !! We like dubbed version more than the real ones 🔥💯 !!

Most of the People in Chennai are those who came from South TamilNadu and settled there !! All 90’s kids of TamilNadu staying in Chennai had a chance to visit their Mom and Dad’s native village once in a year !! We would be treated like a King !! Zamindar !! Like a Modern Man 😂😂 !! Hey U r from Madras !! U r great !! U will have Computer and all !! Once bring ur Laptop and all Anna !! We will be like the most dishonest Species there !! If they ask how Madras will be like !! We will create our own world of Madras like Harry Potter !! Lord of the rings and all !! Yeah da !! In Madras Buses will fly ! Boats will go on the road ! Flight and all will rest in my Home Terrace and go ! School and all just 4 hrs for us ! That too they will ask us to speak in English !! And whatever we blabber if it’s stylish they will saw woaaahhh!! Bro ! You are cool 😂😂 !! Whatever lie we can we will burst it out 😂😂 !! How shitty we were 😂 !! Very Bad !! And the worst is they will believe it !! Pity !! If you have watched Devar Magan movie !! The same feel Kamal Hassan gets when he comes to his native we will get !! All innocent and Best Caring People were there in the Natives ! Whenever I go there all those Friends will run to my grandma’s home to see us !! Annae !! Ravi Annae Epdu nae irka !! Oor pakkam adikadi varlam la !! Vaa nae Cricket viladuvom !! Enga kitta Mattai, Pandhu lam irku !! Vaa povom !! Anga Kenathu kitta Oru Periya Maidhanam maari edam irku vaa povom !! Dream Childhood !!

I would have killed both myself and my brother there 😂😂😂 !! Used to go to the Fields with my uncles and see what and all they are cultivating !! Chillies !! Rice !! Cotton !! Tomatoes !! Sugarcanes !! Banana !! Neem Trees !! Mango trees !! Palm Trees !! Coconut Trees !! etc etc !!

Banyan Tree in my Native was the best place to spend time with Family and Friends there !! There was a temple also nearby there !! Karuppasamy Temple !! Goat and chickens will be given to the deity there and some poojas and all will happen !! I who don’t believe in those things will hang out around the Banyan tree and playing Oonjal in the roots falling from the branches !! The best thing in temples and all is to the acting of Normal people who will start dancing like anything if the temple bells ring and they will say God has come inside them !! They will say all the good and bad that will happen to the village and specific person in the future 🤔😂 !! Just Wierd things !! Why not try me once God 😂😂 !!

We tried calling to TV Channels Caller Shows like Pepsi Uma show etc. It was 15 rupees per minute while calling them ! Had a bad experience and slipper shot onçe trying that 😂😂 !! We can send our Pics to TV channel and they will make birthday wishes for us and will telecast it on TV  !! Only if we are a child 😂😂 !! In those days birthday wishes, love wishes etc can be done on TV. Where we have to send a message to given number with our name and those messages will run on the TV below where the VJ stands !! We used to send “I love you (our Crush)”  msg to Sun Music channel and wait for the message to get displayed on the TV !! Listening to songs in Radio was our favourite thing to get sleep at night !! We will listen to the radio as a whole family !! We used to write something on the Rupees notes ( Maximum Our name and Crush Name 😂😂 ) And will check if it will reach our Crush anytime like in Jeje movie !! I had one ROFL experience !! I wrote My Name and My Father’s Phone Number on a 10 rupees note and gave it for buying something in a shop in Chennai. Then We  went to our native (Tirunelveli) for Annual leave and in that leave an aunty Called to that number and said I am from Coimbatore and that Ravi has written a phone number in the 10 rupees note and all. Was just curious so only I called !! Literally I forgot What I wrote on that 10Rupee Note. What made her to call 🤔😂😂😂 !! Oh Shit !! That was a very bad experience !! That too in Native and all at evenings all neighbourhood people used to sit together and have fun talks since we come to Native only once in a year !! At that time she called 😂😂 !! My Mom and Dad would have killed me there !! Slaps from my mom in front of everyone !! Stopped writing on rupees notes after that !!

If I start thinking and writing maybe I will end up with 100 more things. It was so much fun. We literally had a world outside these walls. We were not dependent on mobile phones for fun. Almost every child used to be on the street in the evenings and the entire society was like a neighborhood. I am staying in Bangalore for almost 1 year and its really difficult to find fields for playing outdoor games. Even for playing Cricket and Badminton people are paying and joining different sports complex/clubs. I hardly know my neighbors even though I am staying here for almost 1 year. We are so lazy and busy that we feel sleeping at home and browsing over Wi-fi is the best time pass and the same thing we are passing to our coming generations. I hope we can give the same childhood to our future generations that we had.

Keep reading and Keep Learning. Be Happy !! Make Others Happy !! Spread Love !! Spread out our Memories to the Future Generations !!

Because 90’s has more memories !! But Less Evidence nowadays !!

And as we grew up, we realized how, silently but surely , our lives have changed…!!

Time will show you how valuable Love is !!

Prologue: 

Once upon a time, there was an island where all the Feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Richness, Vanity (Excessive Pride), Knowledge, and all the others, including Love.

Story:

One day it was announced to the Feelings that the island would sink!
So all the Feelings constructed boats and left. Except for love
Love was the only one who stayed.
Love wanted to hold out until the last possible moment.

When the island had almost sunk, Love decided to ask for help.
Richness was passing by love in a grand boat.
Love said, “Richness can you take me with you?”
Richness answered “No I can’t!”. There is a lot of Silver and Gold in my boat. There is no place for you.

Love decided to ask Vanity, who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel. Vanity please help me !
I can’t help you, love. “You are all wet and might damage my boat,” Vanity answered.

Sadness was close by,
So love asked sadness let me go with you.
Oh! love…..I am so sad that I need to be by myself!.

Happiness passed by love too, but she was so happy that she did not even hear when love called her.

Suddenly there was a voice, Come Love!, “I WILL TAKE YOU”
It was an elder voice.
So blessed and overjoyed, Love even forgot to ask the elder where they were going.
The sea was with Heavy storm and icebergs, But Love found the Shore and guided the elder to a dry land.
When they arrived at a dry land, the elder smiled and went her own way.

Realising how much she owed to the elder.
Love asked Knowledge (another elder), “who helped me !?”
“It was Time,” Knowledge answered.
“Time?” Asked love
But why did Time help me ?
Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered, “Because only time is capable of understanding how valuable Love is”

Epilogue:

The Boat in which richness travelled got hit by an iceberg and all the Silver and Gold got sunk with the ship to the bottom of sea for No use.
The Boat in which Vanity travelled got caught in a storm and the ship got completely wrecked.
The Boat in which sadness travelled, is still out in sea at nowhere, completely Bizarre no idea where the Shore is.
The Boat in which Happiness travelled got too carried away, and ended up the same way Sadness did.
If love would have travelled with them, may be they would have reached the dry land with ease.
At last every one are waiting for Time to save them and teach them lesson about what they wasted by leaving Love in the ruins.

Moral:

That is Life !!
You have to just wait for the Time !!
No Matter How bad situations you are in, Just Keep Calm. Time will come for the rescue always !!
And Only Time will show you how valuable Love is !!

Money vs Love – A Comparison

Money Comes today and goes back tomorrow in the same way it came !!

Love and affection ( Paasam ) is the only one that is always stable !!

Don’t ever ignore love and Affection for Money !!

Nowadays the respect we get for Money and Beauty is not the same in case for good Character and Courtesy !!

One who doesn’t have Money even if he works in a Hotel he will come and eat only in his home !!

One who has Money even if he has food in his home, he will go and eat in a hotel/restaurant !!

One who doesn’t have Money will walk or ride a bicycle to fill his Stomach !!

One has Money will walk or ride a bicycle to reduce his stomach !!

One who doesn’t have Money he will run throughout his life and work hard everyday for Food !! Food !! Food !! only. Both for him and his Family. (Soathukaaga oduvan)

One who has Money will run his life everyday for increasing his Wealth and Property !! Property !! Property !! (Sothukaaga Oduvan)

One who doesn’t have Money will pretend and act like he is rich. He wants to and always have that thought of becoming rich one day. We can notice maximum spendthrift people are poor people.

One who has all the Money will Pretend or act to show that he is poor. We can notice maximum stringent people are rich people.

When we are Happy and Peaceful, we run behind achieving all money !! When we have money, we run for achieving Happiness and Peace

In this world the only deciding factor for people to lift you over their head or throw you in ditches is “Money” !! (Eppavumae Gunathuku Mela Panam than Inga)

Money is always “Ultimate” here !! 

Remember !!

We can exist without Love but we cannot exist without Money and we can live without Money but we cannot live without Love !!

Money is important to survive but it doesn’t always love you back.But love and affection is the only thing in the world that lasts forever. 

Love is hard to find, whereas money can always be made one way or the other. The only difference is that if you lose all your money, you can always get it back. But not in case of love !! Once hurt it stays hurt forever !!

Its good to have money and the things money can buy, but its good too, to checkup once in a while that you haven’t lost the things that money can’t buy !!

Money is just a tool !! Having More money will not make you rich !! Even People with more money suffer a lot !! 

But Love is an Energy !! If it increases you really become rich !! You will get Self Confidence, Support, Happiness,Healthiness,Kindness,Connection with People, also can lead you to self Discovery and even source for money can also be possible !! 

Money can find you a fine dog, but only Love can make him wag his tail !!

Becoming thirstier for Money will lead you to bad ways, but becoming thirstier for Love will for sure bring you a lots and lots of fortunes !!

Some People are so poor that all they have is only Money in their Life and absolutely nothing else !! Life is not about becoming rich in money !! It is all about becoming rich in Memories and Moments !! In the End you take away only the Memories with you !! nothing else !! 

When you are alive collect Moments not Things !! Earn Respect not Money !! And enjoy Love not Luxury !!

With Love – The One among you !! The One who doesn’t run behind money !! The One who runs behind a Simple Love one can show to everyone !!  Who thinks Love and Money are both the balanced Breadwinners !!

Do what you Love and the Money will follow you eventually !!

Penne VI !!!!!! – Petromax  – A Tamil Poem

ஓர் தினம் !!
ஓர் இரவு !!
ஓர் நிலவு !!
ஓர் ரயிலில் பயணம் செய்தது !!

அதே ஓர் ரயிலின் !!
எதோ ஓர் பெட்டியில் !!
இதோ ஓர் கதவோரம் !!
ஏதோ ஓர் நினைவோடு !!
அஃதே !!
வானில் நட்சத்திரங்களின் துணையுடன் !!
இஃதே !!
நிலவின் ஒளியில் !!
காற்றின் அலையில் !!
கவிதை வரியில் !!
பாடலின் ஒலியில் !!
மயங்கி நின்றேன் !!

ரயில் முன்னே செல்ல !!
காற்று என்னை பின்னே தள்ள !!
ரயிலினுள்ள !!
ஏதோ ஒரு நல்ல !!
பெண் மான் ஒன்று துள்ள !!
கொஞ்சம் மெல்ல !!
அவள் கண்விழி என்னை கொல்ல !!
என் கால் நழுவி செல்ல !!
கதவை நான் பற்றிக் கொள்ள !!
மன்மதன் விட்டான் வில்ல !!
என் இதயம் என் கிட்ட இல்ல !!

எல்லாம் வல்ல !!
இறைவனுமல்ல !!
இந்த புள்ள !!
அவள நான் வெல்ல !!
அவ சொன்ன சொல்ல !!
சேத்து வச்சேன் உள்ள !!
இன்று கவிதையாய் கொட்டுது அது மெல்ல !!

மீன் வடிவ கண் !!
முக்கால் அங்குல மூக்கு !!
குழி விழும் கண்ணம் !!
குளிரூட்டும் கண்ணாடி !!
ரோஜா இதழ் உதடு‌ !!
கரு நிற கூந்தல் !!
வெள்ளை நிற சட்டை !!
நீல நிற ஜீன்ஸ் !!
நளினமான நடை !!
பூஜ்ய அளவு இடை !!
பொற்சிலை வடிவம் !!
பால் நிற தேகம் !!
பேச்சில் ஒரு வேகம் !!
என் காதில் எழும் ராகம் !!
ஏனோ வரும் ஒரு மோகம் !!
இதுவும் கடந்து போகும் !!
என அவளை விவரித்து கவிதை எழுதிக்கொண்டு இருந்தேன் !!
என் மனதில் !!

எதிர் திசையில் சீரிய ரயிலின் சத்தம் !!
என் கனவை மொத்தம் !!
கலைத்தது !!

உள்ளே சென்றேன் !!
இருக்கையில் அமர்ந்தேன் !!

ஜன்னலோரம் !!
ஜில்லென்று காற்று வீச !!
மின்னல் ஒன்று என்னை நோக்கி வந்தது !!
ஜன்னல் என்றது !!
என்ன என்றேன் !!
மீண்டும் ஜன்னல் என்றது !!
மீண்டும் என்ன என்றேன் !!
ஜன்னல் இருக்கை என்னுடையது என்றது !!
ஓ சரி என்றேன் !!

ஜன்னல் ஓரம் மின்னல் அமர !!
இடி முழக்கமிட !!
வானில் மழை பொழிய !!
நிலவற்ற இருளில் !!
என் இதயம் வெளிச்சம் பெற்றது !!
இப்பெண் நிலவின் முன்னிலையில் !!

கரணம் தப்பினால் மரணம் !!
எனவே எப்போதும் கவனம் !!
விழுந்திருந்தால் என்ன செய்திருப்பாயடா !!
என்றது அந்நிலவு !!

நான் விழுந்துதான் விட்டேன் கண்ணே !!
கீழே அல்ல உன்னுள் !!
என்றது புது வெளிச்சம் கண்ட என் இதயம் !!

அந்த 5 மணி நேர ரயில் பயணம் !!
என் வாழ்க்கையில் மறக்க முடியா ஒரு தருணம் !!

இன்பத்தின் உச்சியில் !!
மகிழ்ச்சியின் ஊற்றில் !!
ஆனந்தத்தின் அருவியில் !!
குதூகல ஆற்றில் !!
உல்லாச ஓடையில் !!
சந்தோஷ கடலில் !!
குளித்தது போல் ஒரு உணர்வு !!
மனம் உற்சாக எழுச்சி பெற்றது !!

கதைத்தோம் !!
பேசினோம் !!
பறைத்தோம் !!
உரையாடினோம் !!
சிரித்தோம் !!
இனித்தோம் !!
நான் என் பண்பான பைந்தமிழில் !!
அவள் தன் மயக்கும் மலையாளத்தில் !!

என் கவிதைகளை இசைத்தேன் !!
என் கட்டுரைகளை காட்டினேன் !!
என் கையால் தீட்டிய ஓவியங்களை காண்பித்தேன் !!
என் உள்ள உணர்வுகளை பகிர்ந்தேன் !!
அத்தேவதையிடம் !!

இக்கணம் !!
இந்நொடி !!
இந்நிமிடம் !!
இக்கண நேரம் !!
கடந்து விடாமல் இப்படியே நின்றுவிட கூடாதா !!
என்ற ஓர் உணர்வு !!

அக்கேரளத்துப் பைங்கிளி
இம்மறத்தமிழனின் கையை பிடித்துக்கொள்ள மாட்டாளா !!
எம்மூச்சுக் காற்று தூரத்திலே வாழ மாட்டாளா !!
அவள் குரலின் இனிமையை என் காதுகளுக்கு ஊட்ட மாட்டாளா !!
அவள் கண் அசைவில் என்னை கிரங்கிப் போக வைக்க மாட்டாளா !!
எல்லையற்ற அன்பை என் மனதில் ஊற்ற மாட்டாளா !!
காலம் முழுதும் !!

கனா கண்டேன் !!
பல வினாக்களுடன் !!

நேரம் கடந்தது !!
ரயில் நின்றது !!
ரயில் நிலையம் வந்ததது !!
பிரியா விடை தந்தாய் !!

நாலு அடி கடந்த பின் எனை திரும்பிப் பார்த்தேனோ !!
காதல் விதையை விதைத்ததேனோ !!
பின் என்னை விட்டு போனதேனோ !!
தூரமாக சென்றதேனோ !!
உன் பெயர் கேட்டரிந்த நான் !!
உன் வாழ்வை கேட்டரிந்த நான் !!
உன் தொடர்பை கேட்க மறந்ததேனோ !!

சொல்லாமல் போன பெண்ணே !!
நீ எந்தன் வாழ்க்கை தானே !!
நீ இல்லை என்றால் !!
இங்கு நானும் இல்லையே !!

அன்று முதல் !!
அதே ரயிலின் !!
அதே கதவோரம் !!
உன் நினைவோடு !!
நீ ஓர் நாள் நிச்சயம் வருவாயென எண்ணி !!
உன் கரம் பிடிக்க !!
ஓர் வரம் கிடைக்க !!
தினம் தினம் காத்திருக்கிறேன் !!
உனக்காகக !!

என் பெட்ரோமேக்ஸ் !!

அன்று முதல் !!
இன்று வரை !!
எனை அறிந்தவர்கள் !!
என்னிடம் கேட்கும் !!
ஒரே கேள்வி !!

“பெட்ரோமேக்ஸ் லைட்டே தான் வேணுமா !!!!!!!”

Penne V !!!!! – Heart Break – A Tamil Poem 

There are things which we thought are the things that will make others happy. But the real thing is that those things are the things that can hurt them a lot – # LOVE

பெண்ணே !!

ஒரு தலைக் காதலில் நான் ஒரு தலை இழந்து நின்றேன் !!
ஆறுதலற்று அனாதையாய் வாழ்ந்தேன் !!
வெளியில் சொல்லவும் முடியாமல் !!
உள்ளே அதை மெல்லவும் முடியாமல் !!
வலியுடன் நின்றேன் !!
ஆறுதலற்றிருந்த எனக்கு ஆறுதலாய் நீ வந்தாய் !!
அது காதலே இல்லையென நிருபித்தாய் !!
என்றும் நான் இருக்கிறேனென்றாய் !!
உன்னைப் போன்ற மனம் வேறெங்கும் இல்லையென்று உணர்ந்தேன் !!
தாயை விட அதிக அன்பு காட்டினாய் !!
என் தாயிடம் நான் சண்டையிட்ட போதும் என்னிடம் கோபித்துக் கொண்டாய் !!
நான் புரியும் சிறு சிறு தவறுகளையும் கண்டித்தாய் !!
நான் எழுதும் கவிதையாகட்டும் நான் வரையும் ஒவியமாகட்டும் நான் இசைக்கும் பாடலாகட்டும்
உன் வாழ்வில் நீ கண்டதிலே சிறந்ததென்பாய் !!
நான் அடையும் சிறு சிறு வாழ்க்கை முன்னேற்றங்களையும் பாராட்டுகளையும் நீ பெற்றது போல் சந்தோஷம் அடைந்தாய் !!
இரவு பகல் பாராமல் என்னோடு உரையாடி என் நலனையே முக்கியமாய் கருதினாய் !!
வேறொரு பெண்ணிடம் பேசினாலே சினம் கொண்டாய் !!
உயிருக்கு உயிராக உணர்வுக்கு உணர்வாக என்னுடன் இவ்வாழ்க்கையில் பயணித்தாய் !!
மகிழ்ச்சியில் திளைத்தேன் !!
ஆனந்தத்தில் ஆர்ப்பரித்தேன் !!
எல்லையில்லா மனநிறைவில் இருந்தேன் !!
என் உயிர்துணையை கண்டு விட்டதாக எண்ணினேன் !!
ஆனால் இதுவெல்லாம் தவரன்றோ என உணர்த்தினாய் !!
உன் இதய சோலை வாசல் திறந்திருந்ததை கண்டுதான் நான் நுழைய வந்தேன் !!
ஆனால் எல்லாம் கானல் நீர் என திரித்துவிட்டாய் !!
நான் தவராக உணரவில்லை எதையும் !!
ஆனால் நீ ஏன் மறைக்கிறாய் அதையும் !!
நான் சூரியனாக நீ சந்திரனாக ஒருவருக்கொருவர் விட்டுக் கொடுத்து வாழ்வோம் எனக் கூறி இன்று நட்சத்திரங்களோடு நட்சத்திரமாய் இருளில் தொலைந்துவிட்டாய் !!
எனை பிடிக்காதென்றுறிந்தாலும் மறந்து சென்றுறிருப்பேன் !!
எனை பிடிக்கும் என்று விட்டு எனை விட்டுச்சென்றதேனோ !!
நாம் ஒன்றாய் பேசி சிரித்துக் கொண்டு நடந்து சென்ற பாதை இன்று தனியே ஏன் வந்தாய் என என்னை கேட்பதேனோ !!
ஆயுள் முழுதும் உன் மூச்சுக்காற்று படும் தூரத்தில் உன்னோடு வாழ நினைத்தேன் !!
அரை நொடி மின்னல் போலே எனை விட்டுச் சென்றதேனோ !!

ஆனால் ஒன்று !!
மறக்கப்படும் அன்பும் !!
மறுக்கப்படும் அன்பும் !!
மறைக்கப்படும் அன்பும் !!
மரணத்தைவிட கொடுமையானது !!

அன்பே !!

அன்றும் !!
இன்றும் !!
என்றும் !!
என் நினைவில் என் சந்தோஷமாய்
நீ !!
இருந்தாய் !!
இருக்கிறாய் !!
இருப்பாய் !!

உயிரே !!

ஏன் என் வாழ்வில் வந்தாய் !!
ஏன் இப்படி என் இதயத்தில் நின்றாய் !!
ஏன் இவ்வளவு அன்பை வழங்கினாய் !!
ஏன் வீண் ஆசை காட்டினாய் !!
ஏன் இவ்வலியைக் தந்தாய் !!

தன் போக்கில் கிடந்த என் இதயத்தை
போறபோக்கில் சிதைத்து விட்டாய் !!

பூஞ்சோலையாய் இருந்த நான் இன்று பாலைவனம் ஆனதேனோ !!
ஏமாளியாக மட்டுமல்ல ஒரு கோமாளியாய் ஆனதேனோ !!

ஆதரவற்ற அனாதை ஒருவன் ஒரு மகிழ்ச்சியான குடும்பத்தை தூரத்தில் கண்டால் எப்படி இருக்குமோ !!
கிரிக்கெட் போட்டியில் நம் அணி ஜெயிக்கும் தருவாயில் இருக்கும் பொழுது மழை பெய்தால் எப்படி இருக்குமோ !!
ஒரு முக்கிய வேலைக்காக வெளியில் செல்லும் வேளையில் நம் காலணி அந்து விட்டால் எப்படி இருக்குமோ !!
தூக்கத்தில் நல்ல கனவு கண்டு கொண்டிருக்கும் போது கடிகார அலாரம் அடித்தால் எப்படி இருக்குமோ !!
இளவயதில் தன் பிள்ளையை இழந்த தாய்க்கு எப்படி இருக்குமோ !!
இரும்பு மனிதன் இறந்த போது மார்வெல் ரசிகர்களுக்கு எப்படி இருந்ததோ !!
தோனி ரன் அவுட் ஆன போது இந்தியர்களுக்கு எப்படி இருந்ததோ !!
அப்படித்தான் இருக்கிறது என் மனநிலை !!

ஏனோ இந்த வலிகளும் போகல !!
தானோ உன் நினைவுகள் தாழல !!
நானோ என்று திருந்துவேன் தெரியல !!

தேடும் முன்பே வந்த பொருள் வாழ்வில் நிலைக்காதென்பார்கள் !!
ஆனால் தேடித் தேடிக் கண்ட நீயும் சென்று விடுவாய் என்று கனவில் கூட எண்ணியதில்லை !!
நேற்று வரை எதையோ தேடினேன் !!
இன்று என்னையே தேடுகிறேன் !!
உனக்காக !!

ரோமியோ ஜுலியட் போல !!
ஷாஜஹான் மும்தாஸைப் போல !!
ரவீந்தர்சிங் குஷியைப் போல !!
உண்மைக் காதல் என்றும் சாகாதென்பார்கள்
என் காதலும் பொய்யானதல்ல !!
கிடைக்காத உனக்காகக என் காதலை ஒரு போதும் வெறுக்க மாட்டேன் !!
கிடைக்காத என் காதலுக்காக உன்னையும் ஒரு போதும் வெறுக்க மாட்டேன் !!

என்றும் இருப்பாய் என் மனதில் !!
நீ !!
எல்லையில்லா அன்போடு !!

A Note to Myself !!

Nobody knows better than you that it hasn’t been easy all this while, the times when you felt that you have failed to make anybody understand what you are going through, the times you feel that nobody cares what you think, the times when you tried and tried hard but all the words of encouragement you read fell apart in reality. Yet you stayed strong and tried everything possible but that feeling of Gloominess was eating you up. 

For all those times when you displayed a courage that was unique, thank you for being who you are, in all those times when you thought you failed thank you for enduring, thank you for inspiring your family and friends because even when you were doing the little, you were making a big difference and it was that time you were coming closer to what you want to achieve, in all those times when people were misunderstanding you, you were coming closer to another set of people who love you and will always stay by your side, in all those times when you struggled not to give up, you came closer to your unique purpose. The best part is that the time will come when everything that happened would reveal it’s true purpose and everything will start making sense.

You are Incredible!! and loved by the Universe.

என் செந்தமிழில் !!
செந்தமிழை கற்றுத்தந்த அவளுக்கு !!
செந்தமிழில் கவிதை எழுத பெருமையடைகிறேன் !!

ஆயிரம் உறவு உன்னை தேடி வந்தே நின்னாலும் தாய் போலே தாங்க முடியுமா !!

அபிஷேகம் செய்யப்படா தெய்வம் என் அம்மா !!
அறிதான அற்புதம் என் அம்மா !!
விலையில்லா சொத்து என் அம்மா !!
பட்டம் பெறா மேதை என் அம்மா !!
அளவுகோளில்லா அன்பு என் அம்மா !!
பாசம் வழிந்தோடும் ஊற்று என் அம்மா !!
தன் நிகரற்ற தாரகை என் அம்மா !!
சுயநலமற்ற இதயம் என் அம்மா !!
அரவணைக்கும் கரம் என் அம்மா !!

என் இல்லத்தினுள் வாழும் பேரில்லம் என் அம்மா !!
என் உள்ளத்தினுள் வாழும் நல்லுள்ளம் என் அம்மா !!

லட்சியம் இருக்கும் இடத்தில் அலட்சியம் இருக்கக் கூடாதென கற்றுத் தந்தவள் என் அம்மா !!
எந்த ஒரு எதிர்பார்ப்புமின்றி என்றும் மகிழ்ச்சியாக வாழ கற்றுத் தந்தவள் என் அம்மா !!
கல் தடுக்கி கீழே விழுந்த என்னைத் திட்டாமல்
அக் கல்லை திட்டித் தீர்த்தவள் என் அம்மா !!
எத்தனை முறை சண்டையிட்டாலும்
தேடி வந்து பேசும் தியாக உருவம் என் அம்மா !!
ஒரு நாளில் என்னை ஆயிரம் பேர் நினைத்தாலும்
ஒரே நாளில் ஆயிரம் முறை நினைப்பவள்
என் அம்மா !!
நான் நேசிக்கும் உயிர்களில் என்னையும் நேசிக்கும் ஓர் உயிர் என் அம்மா !!

நான் பெற்ற முதல் பஞ்சு மெத்தை தாய்மடி !!
நான் பெற்ற முதல் இரத்த தானம் தாய்ப்பால் !!
நான் கேட்ட முதல் பாட்டு தாயின் தாலாட்டு !!
நான் கண்ட முதல் ஓவியம் தாயினது முகம் !!
நான் பயணம் செய்த முதல் வாகனம் தாயினது இடை !!

தன் கருவாய் என்னை வளர்த்து !!
தன் உடலில் என்னை சுமந்து !!
தன் உயிரை எனக்கு பகிர்ந்து !!
தன் லட்சியங்களை தூக்கி எறிந்து !!
தன் சூள்நிலைகளை மறந்து !!
தனக்கான யாவையும் துறந்து !!
தன்னை எனக்காக அற்பனித்த தெய்வம் அம்மா !!

என் இதயமாக நீ வாழ்கிறாய் !!
என்றென்றும் எனக்காக துடிக்கிறாய் !!
என் கால்களாய் நீ வாழ்கிறாய் !!
என்றென்றும் என்னைத் தாங்கிக் கொள்கிறாய் !!

நான் வளர வளர நான் உணரும் ஓர் உண்மை !!
என்றும் என் உயிர் தோழியாய் இருப்பது என் தாய் தானென்று !!

தன் காலம் முழுவதும் !!
என்னை !!
வயிற்றிலும் !!
மடியிலும் !!
தோளிலும் !!
சுமந்து வந்தவள் !!

உலகம் இவ்வளவழகானதா !!
உணர்ந்தேன் !!
அவள் என்னை தன் கைகளில் சுமந்த போது !!

காலையில் விழிக்கும் போதும் !!
இரவில் தூங்கச் செல்லும் போதும் !!
காண எண்ணும் ஓர் முகம் நீ தானம்மா !!

நான் படித்த ஓர் துயரமான உண்மை !!
நான்கு வயதில் சண்டையிடுகிறோம் !!
அம்மா என்னுடையது !!
அப்பா என்னுடையது என்று !!
நாற்பது வயதில் சண்டையிடுகிறோம் !!
அம்மா உன்னுடையது !!
அப்பா உன்னுடையது என்று !!

ஐந்து குழந்தைகளை ஒரு தாய் எந்த ஒரு பாரபட்சமுமின்றி வளர்க்கிறாள் !!
ஆனால் அந்த ஐந்து குழந்தைகளால் ஒரு தாயை பாரபட்சமின்றி காப்பாற்றுவது ஏன் இவ்வளவு கடினமாகிறதோ தெரியவில்லை !!

அன்னையை கடவுளிடம் ஒப்பிடாதே என்றென்பேன் நான் !!
ஏனென்றால் என் கஷ்டங்களை கண்டு என்றும் கல்லாய் இருந்ததில்லை அவள் !!

இழந்தவன் தேடுவதும் !!
இருப்பவன் தொலைப்பதும் !!
தான் !!
தாயினது அன்பு !!

வள்ளுவனே சொல்கிறான் உலகப் பொது மறையில் !!
ஈன்ற பொழுதின் பெரிதுவக்கும் தன்மகனைச்
சான்றோன் எனக்கேட்ட தாய் !!
தன் பிள்ளையை நற்பண்பு நிறைந்தவன்(ள்)!!
என்று பிறர் சொல்லக் கேட்டால் !!
தான் உனை ஈன்ற பொழுது இருந்த மகிழ்ச்சியை விட !!
இரட்டிப்பான மகிழ்ச்சியைப் பெறுவாள் உன் தாய் !!
அதை லட்சியமாய் கொண்டு உன் வாழ்வில் உழைத்துக் கொண்டே இரு !!

இறுதியாக ஒன்று சொல்கிறேன் !!
அம்மாவுக்கென்று தனிக் கவிதை தேவையில்லை !!
அம்மாவே ஒரு சிறந்த கவிதை தான் !!
பழகிப் பார் !! அன்பை பகிர்ந்துப் பார் !! பாரை ஆழலாம் !!

Mother – The Symbol of Pure Eternal Love !!

Amma – Mother – Mummy – Maa – Mee – Mom ❤

What does the word “Mother” makes you remember ?

The One who is the owner of all the following Qualities right : Affection, Friendliness, Love, Responsiveness, Warmth, Sacrifice.

It’s as simple as the Dialogue in PuduPettai Tamil Movie : “Who doesn’t like Mother even Cats and Dogs like their Mother” !!

The First Blood donation every Person gets is a Mother’s Milk.

Even before seeing our Face, before hearing our voice, before getting to know our Character, the only heart which loved us is “Amma”

Assuming that the child will die if she sleeps in a wrong position, She sacrificed her sleep for more than 7 months till the Baby Comes out Healthy. That’s “Amma”

More than the desire of making us teach how to walk, her concentration was more focused on not letting us fall down. That’s “Amma”

To hear that sound of word “Amma !!” Once from her child. During the Pregnancy Delivery time, she shouted Amma !! Amma !! 1000 times. That’s “Amma”

Don’t know but may be because we know the pain she had to go through to give birth to us…we too cried during our birth.

We may not remember the memories of our first 10 years of life, we have to understand that she was the one who dedicated her entire 10 years for taking care of us. We can say its just 10 years man, But After marriage starting from the 10 th month to the 10 th year, she sacrificed all she dreamed to make us happy and dedicated her life completely to us.

Meanwhile Taking care of the family, Doing all the Household chores, Facing all the Family issues, she will also guide us to the next level in life.

After Finishing our school, when we land our Feet in College gates, her Jewels would have seen many Pawn broker shops and many Banks.

To make our Career Dreams Come true, she may also sometimes lose her normal dreams which comes during sleep.

If we fall in love at teen ages, she will denounce us like it’s the nature of a mom and she will explain to us what is wrong and what is right at that age to do. She will guide us through our love life for sure but only after some resistance.

She will pray to the god daily for making us to see the world and achieve the dreams which she could not.

If we leave our Hometown to work in a outside place, She will live with our memories running through her daily..She will call us or message us or contact us through whatever way she can atleast once a day to make sure we are Happy in this Foreign place.

In her life, She spent more time in living for her Children than for herself.

She may not be beautiful in terms of dressing, Voice etc but her Smile is enough for making the world to shed Happy Tears on the sight of her.

Although she faces Sorrows, tortures..She will never expose them even if her Parents house or other relative’s house is nearby..She will live sometimes even in hunger and Starvation without speaking a word against the words of her husband who tied Mangalsutra around her neck. She did all this only for us. She is living with us as an angel and a God by taking care of us in whatever situation she is

“Amma” is not just a word to forget and move on…it is a blood relation that is mixed with our Soul.

Whenever I see smokes, I remember her blowing air in those days into the Firewood Stoves ( Viragu Adupu – the one in which we burn logs to Cook )

The first women who loved me and the first women I loved is “Amma”

Even if thousand hands are there to wipe my tears off, but when she wipes my tears with her saree’s end…all my unhealable wounds and sorrows fly away like dust in the air.

I will sleep even on Stones and sand, if u r there to sing lullaby to make me sleep.

You struggled with your breath to give birth to me, I Promise I will make sure u do not struggle for anything till my last breath Amma !!

Whenever I read about true love…Your face is the first I see “Amma” – The Unconditional love you gave without expecting back anything.

One who does sacrifices in life is “APPA”, the One who sacrifices the whole life is “Amma”

We never realize what and all sacrifices our Amma did to us throughout her life. When we realize it, maximum She will not be in our life.

Love your Mom!! When She is with you !! Make her Happy!! Make her feel proud by making her dreams come true through you!! Because she will be the only person one who believes in you no matter what, when no one else will be there to !!

Whatever good things or bad things happen in my life…the first person I share it with is my mom…if in get Appreciated for something first thing I will call her and let her know…if some one hurt me for something…I will call her and let her know…..if I get a new friend, if I lose a close friend..I will let her know..Who doesn’t like Mother…even dogs and cats like their Mother 💓..My guide…One Person who is always on my side…who thought me to write …who thinks me as a pride…there is nothing to her which I can hide..I like the potatoes which she fried….The one I am eagerly waiting to find me a bride….Because nothing works by itself I tried I tried 🤣🤣🤣🤣😝🤣🤣🤣💓💓

Whatever Relationship comes into your life – Amma is Amma always 💓 !! I lived like a King in my House !! Even Now when I go home I will be taken care of like a King !! Realizing gradually now after PG Bachelor life, how hard My Mom works daily to manage each and everyone of us !!

There were days when I feel good going to college only if I see my mom’s face in the balcony while moving towards the college bus !! If I miss one day, that will be a bad day for me !! You may think it’s Superstition, But for me it’s above that !!

Even now when I go home on weekends, both my Father and mother will come with me till I get into a Auto/Bus and will wait till it leaves our road/ their eyesight and then only they will go back home !!

She used to say I am not hungry if everyone ate and if there is a need to cook only for her !! I have said I am also hungry ma for making her cook even though I am full 😊 !! But Many Will think you would have been hungry da Don’t act !! May be 😝😝 !! There were days when I never ate due to some office works !! No One would ask did you eat and all !! When I come to room and Open my WhatsApp !! I can see a Message in Tamil or Wrongly typed English !! This is a Message she sent me I am copy pasting – “ரவி ரூமுக்கு வந்தியாடா சாப்டாச்சா என்ன சாப்பாடு எப்படி இருக்க நல்லா இருக்கியா”, “வணக்கம் மகனே உணவு அருந்தி விட்டாயா”, “ரவி என்னபன்ற சாப்டாச்சா என்ன சாப்பாடு”, “ரவி உணவு அருந்தி விட்டாயா நாளைக்கி வர பயணச்சீட்டு வாங்கிவிட்டாயா” “Ravi Sabtaja nalaike uruku variya”. No one else does that. But it’s her only her. May be Annet (My Friend) asks sometimes 😁. Friends and Brothers share memes, laugh Hard etc etc but asking did you eat ?? Is a Mom’s Dialogue Forever !! Also a Dad’s dialogue is there !! It will not be to us !! It will be to Mom !! “Did he eat ??”

If she cooks Dosa and if the batter can produce 10 Dosa !! You Know me !! She will be like One more !! One more !! One more !! Till all 10 gets over !! And then She will say wait !! I will come back. She will go to the shop and buy 2 more batters !! And it continues !! Now Can you realize why I am like this 😂😂

In Childhood and all I was the one who would be going to all the shops to buy things for my Home !! I was a regular customer to many shops !! In Some Shops, if I make an appearance itself !! Oh Hey Ravi ! Here already I packed it !! Take it and Go !! It was like that !! But gradually as I grew up !! It stopped and nowadays ! My Mom asks my little brother to do that !! And he will be like “Andha Eruma maadu summa thaana irkan !! En avan Po maatana !!” She will say “He is a big boy da !!” But Mom !! You are Older than me !! Then why are you going still each time !! She used to walk down the stairs 1000 times a day !! Mainly because of me and my brothers !! That too my Mom is a working Lady !! She helps my Dad at work !! There were days when she got broke also because of this continuous walking up and down 😅 !! Sorry Amma !!!

For Every 2 days, Water will come in the Government Pumps we installed in our house !! She used to pump water alone many times !! She never scolds us for not helping !! Only My Father gets all Scolding 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 !! Paavam !! Sorry Amma and Appa !!

Kaju katli is the favorite sweet to me and my Mom !! If there are 10 in a box !! And if I am eating 2 at a time !! She will say I don’t like this today !! Don’t know why !! You have it all !! I am already full she will say !! And I never realized that at that time !! That she did a sacrifice !! Now if I think about it – “Ada Vekkangetta Naayae enada panni vachiruka”

There were days when I secretly walk inside the kitchen at midnight to check if any food is there or not !! If there is nothing I will return back with a sad face !! And I would find her standing there !! Even at that time in half sleep she cooks Maggi or a Dosa or something for me !! Only for me 😂😂 !! If it’s my brothers – “Saavdichirvan poi thoongu da” 😂😂 !!

I realized the value of Home Food (My Mom’s Food) !! Only After the first bite of my PG food !! Me and My brothers used to scold her during school time !! If she says today tomato rice for school !! Last week only u did tomato rice !! Do something new ma !! But now longing for that Tomato Rice and Omelette 😓

I never do late night studies !! But my Brothers do only late night studies !! That too only on the last day !! I have seen My Mom staying with them without sleep all night as a Moral Support !! So that they will not sleep !! She gave Tea, Coffee and all for them at midnight !! I have seen that !! 😍 Thank you Amma !!

Please never ever ask your mom to wake you up in the morning !! You will ask her to wake you up at 9.00. But She will wake you up at 6.00 and say “Dai ! It’s 9.30 da !! Wake up soon” 😒😒😒

There were days when I try to find a thing which I kept somewhere, I search it for like half an hour and still can’t find it !! But She will come and it will be directly before where I stand !! I can’t understand that Magic till now 😅😂😂😂😂❤ Thank You Amma !!

The Worst thing we can do is pissing her off while sleeping !! While she is watching TV or sitting silently and all we will be silent !! Just when we start to sleep !! We Will shout, Sing a song in motta rajendran’s voice, WWE fights etc etc 😂😂 !! Very bad Ra reii Amit 😂😂😂 !! Realizing one by one !! Some day she will be Okay !! Do Do !! Someday She will throw whatever comes in hand near where she sleeps 😂😂😂 !! Sorry Amma !!

She will never allow our father to scold us !! If He scolds us !! She will stop him anyhow !! But She will replicate the exact anger our father had on us after he leaves !! She would say – “Think about your Father at least once, how hard he works for us !! I Only know that How he is working hard to save each and every penny for u !! And U !! What u r doing !! Realize !!” That’s My Mom !! ❤❤❤❤ And Yes my Father is a Hard worker !! He Works from morning 4 to night 11 for nearly since past 35 years !! All this Only for us !! The Word “Ideal Couple” !! It’s My Father and Mother !! They are the most suitable example for it !! Whatever he thinks !! Even before he spells out !! My Mom will say the exact thing what he thought !! And He will laugh like anything !! He will say “Epidi Ma !!! Naan yosi chadha crct ah sollirra” His laugh will show Everything !! 😂😂😂😂 Pure Hearts both !! ❤❤

The most innocent pure hearts I have seen ❤ !!

I am not an atheist !! But I don’t have that much belief towards God !! For me “A Person Showing simple act of kindness / sharing a Simple Love / Taking a Good Care of People is God” Whenever we fell sick !! Like my accident / Chickenpox times / One big tragedy which I can’t explain in words, She will wake up early in the morning go to temple !! Pray for us daily !! The Only things which runs inside her is somehow he should get back to normal !! she will pray each and every minute !! I will ask Why ma !! If you go to Temple daily How will this get cured !! She will say u close your mouth !! U don’t know anything 😅 !! Really Is it me who don’t know!!! 😂😂 But that Love she shows without expecting anything back is God !! My Mom is God !! All of our Moms are God ❤ !!

She likes to go to her native for the Kovil Thiruvizha ( Temple Celebrations ) which happens every year !! She likes only ! I said !! But She misses it each and every year because we have Annual exam or Special classes bla bla bla !! She went only twice in 10 years 😅 !! How can l leave them alone and go she will say !! Even the two times she went !! She will call and ask Did you eat ? Did you eat ? Did you eat ? 1000 times ❤

The best thing that happened in the last vacation !! I secretly entered my house at night and Table fan was near my Dad when I entered !! Then I slept near brothers !! And in the morning when I woke up !! I can feel fast air hitting my face !! Table fan was near me !! My Mom’s work !!

Here comes the best part:

❤ That Innocence of Mom ❤…She taught me how to write the first ever word “அ”…I taught her how to Sign in English..She taught me how to bargain in a shop…I taught her how to use Internet and order online…She taught me how to cook Maggi/Omelette…I taught her how to watch Cooking/Tailoring Videos on YouTube..She taught me Tamizh…I taught her English…She taught me how to walk…I taught her how a motor bike works..My First best Friend..Amma❤..The best Company ever…This how I became what I am today 😎🙏

The Most important goal I have in my life is to take her on a Plane One day !! And Show how it feels !! We had that talks in my Childhood !! That is my Ultimate Dream !! Taking my Family on an Aeroplane to any destination !! It will be Madurai !!

As any parent will tell you, the practice of raising a child can be extremely difficult, and mothers definitely deserve our thanks and praise.

All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother !! If I had a single flower for Every time I think of you, I could walk forever in my Garden !!

Thank You Amma for all the time you were there for me and also for all the time you will be there for me !!!

Love you 3000 Amma ❤❤❤❤❤🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
