Penne III !!! – முதல் காதல் – A Tamil Poem

அவள் !!

தைத் திங்கள் ஒரு நாள் கண்டேன்
அக்காரிகையை !!
இறக்கை இல்லா தேவதையை !!
புதிதாய் பூத்த பூ போல !!
அதிகாலை உதித்த சூரியனைப் போல !!
அந்தி மாலை செந்நிர கடலினைப் போல !!
பௌர்ணமி நிலவைப் போல !!
மழழையின் சிரிப்பைப் போல !!
வியப்பூட்டும் அழகாய் இருந்தாள் அவள் !!

நிலவிடம் காதலினைப் பற்றி கூறி புலம்புவோருண்டு !!
அந்நிலவையே காதலித்தவனை கண்டதுண்டா !!

தேய்பிறையாய் இருந்த என்னை ஒரே பார்வையில் வளர்பிறையாக்கினாள் அவள் !!
பக்தி மானாய் இருந்த என்னை சக்திமானாக்கினாள் அவள் !!
பூஜ்யமாய் இருந்த என்னை ராஜ்யம் ஆளும் திறன் கொள்ள வைத்தாள் அவள் !!
சகஜமாய் பழகும் என்னை சங்கோஜ பட வைத்தாள் அவள் !!

கண்ட நாள் முதல் அவளை காண எண்ண துடிக்காத நாள் இல்லை !!
அவளைக் கண்ட நொடி ஏனோ நான் !!
அவளை பித்து போல் பின் தொடர்ந்தேன் !!
குயிலிசையை கேட்ட பறவை பார்வையாளனைப் போல !!
மழைத்துளியைக் கண்ட மழழையைப் போல !!

இரவெல்லாம் கனா !!
கனாவெள்ளாம் அவள் !!
என்னிடம் அத்தேவதை தன் செவ்விதலால் !!
செந்தேன் போன்ற குரலால் !!
செந்தமிழில் !!
என்னுடன் உரையாடி !!
என் கள்ளங்கபடமற்ற இதயத்திற்கு இனிமையூட்ட மாட்டாளா !!

வண்ணத் திருவிழாவில் !!
அவள் பூசிய வண்ணம் !!
என் முகத்தில் மட்டுமல்ல !!
என் இதயத்திலும் ஓவியமானது !!

பெண்ணே !!

ஓர் நாள் !!

அந்தி மழை பொழிந்தது !!
ஒவ்வொரு துளியிலும் !!
உன் முகம் தெரிந்தது !!
என் அகம் திறந்தது !!

பார்த்தேன் உன்னை !!
மறந்தேன் என்னை !!
மிதந்தேன் காற்றில் !!
பறந்தேன் விண்ணில் !!
நடந்தோம் மண்ணில் !!
இரு உயிராய் !!
ஓர் குடையில் !!

நனைத்தேன் !!
குடை இருந்தும் !!
காதல் மழையில் !!

நான் உன் கண்ணில் !!
நீ எண்ணில் !!
விழுந்தேன் தன்னில் !!
உன்னில் !!

உன் நிலவாய் உனை சுற்றி வர ஆசை !!
உன் நிலழாய் உனை பின் தொடர ஆசை !!
உன் நினைவாய் உன் மனதில் என்றும் வலம் வர ஆசை !!
உன் நிஜமாய் என்றும் உன் அருகினிலே வாழ ஆசை !!

உன் நடனத்தை மெருகேற்றும் நலினமாக !!
உன் பாடல்களை இனிமையாக்கும் குரல்வளமாக !!
உன் எழில் மிகு பேச்சில் வரும் நகைச்சுவையாக !!
உன் மனதை உற்சாகமாக்கும் மழைத்துளியாக !!
உன் பால் போன்ற மேனியின் மேல் செம்பூவாக !!
உனை இனிமையாக்க !! உனை முழுமையாக்க !!
நீ எந்தன் பாதியாய் !!
நான் உந்தன் மீதியாய் மாற ஆசை !!

அன்பே !

சூரியன் அக்கடலை பிரகாசிப்பது போல் நான் உனை பிரகாசிப்பேன் விடியலாய் !!
மீண்டும் அச்சூரியன் அக்கடலில் மறைவது போல் உன்னுள் நான் சேர்வேன் அந்தி மாலையாய் !!

ஆருயிரே!

அவ்வசந்த கால காலை
அழகாய் இருக்கும் நீ அணிந்த பட்டு சேலை
உன் தோலில் விழும் என் மாலை
அந்த மண்டபம் இருக்கும் சாலை
எங்கெங்கும் உருவாகும் சோலை
விரிப்போம் அனைவருக்கும் வாழை
ஊற்றுவோம் நம் பெற்றோர் மனதில் பாலை !!
பிறக்கும் நமக்கொரு காளை !! நாளை !!

வெண்ணிலவு பொட்டழகி !!
என் உயிர் நோகுமடி !!
நீ இல்லாவிட்டால் !!
நீ இருக்கும் போது என் வாழ்வு சொர்க்கமே !!
நீ எனை விட்டுச் சென்றால் என் வாழ்வும் ஆகுமடி நரகமே !!

உனை காணும் போதெல்லாம் ஏதோ ராகம் நெஞ்சுக்குள்ள வந்து வந்து உன் பேர சொல்லி சொல்லி பாடலாய் ஓலிக்குதடி !!

மயிலாஞ்சியே !

ஓர் தோழியாக !!
ஓர் காதலியாக !!
ஓர் மனைவியாக !!
என்னுடைய மறு பாதியாக !!
என்றும் உறுதுணையாக !!
என்னுடன் இரு !!
அது போதும் !!
என் வாழ்வை மொத்தம் நான் கொள்ள !!
உன்னோடு வாழாத வாழ்வென்ன வாழ்வு என் உள் நெஞ்சு சொல்கின்றது !!

நீர் & மனித உயிர் – A Comparison (ஒப்பீடு)

மனித உயிரின் வாழ்க்கை நீரின் வாழ்விற்கு ஒப்பானது !!

நீர் மேகத்தில் உருவாகிறது நீராவியாய் !! மனிதன் தன் தாயினது வயிற்றில் உருவாகிறான் கருவாய் !!

நீர் தான் நிரப்பப்படும் பாத்திரத்தின் வடிவத்தை பெற்றுக் கொள்ளும் !! அதே போல் மனிதன் தான் வளர்க்கப்படும் சுற்றத்தின் மூலம் நடத்தை பெற்றுக் கொள்கிறான் !!

நீர் பிரிக்கப்படுகிறது தான் மழையாய் விழும் இடம் பொருத்து !!

குளமாக !!! நதியாக !!! கால்வாயாக !!! சாக்கடையாக !!!

அதே போல் மனிதனும் பிரிக்க படுகிறான் தான் பிறக்கும் இடம் பொருத்து !!

மொழியாக !!! மதமாக !!! குலமாக !!! சாதியாக !!!

எதுவாக பிரித்தாலும் நீர் நீர் தான் !! அதே போல் எதுவாக பிரித்தாலும் மனிதன் மனிதன் தான் என்பதை என்று உணர்கிறோமோ அன்று தான் உலகம் அமைதிக்கான பாதையை நோக்கிச் செல்லும்!!

நீரை குடிநீர் கழிவுநீர் என இருவாரியாய் பிரிக்கிறோம் !! அதே போல் மனிதனை பணக்காரன், ஏழை என இருவாரியாய் பிரிக்கிறோம் !!ஆனால் கழிவு நீரையும் சுத்தகரித்து ஒரு நாள் குடி நீராய் மாற்றலாம் என்பதரியாது வாழ்கிறோம்!!

நீர் எவ்விடத்தில் மழையாக விழுந்தாலும் எவ்வாரியாய் பிரிக்கப்பட்டு இருந்தாலும் இறுதியில் கடலினைத் தான் சென்றடைய வேண்டும் !! அதே போல் மனிதன் எங்கு பிறந்தாலும் எவ்வளவு பணக்காரனாய் இருந்தாலும் இறுதியில் மண்ணைத் தான் சேர வேண்டும் !!

கடலை அடைந்த நீர் மீண்டும் நீராவியாகி வெவ்வேறு இடங்களில் மீண்டும் மழையாய் பொழியும் !! அப்போது அதே நீர்த்துளி அதே இடத்தில் விழும் என்பது கிடையாது அது போல் ஒவ்வொருவரும் தனக்கான வாய்ப்பு வரும் வரை காத்திருக்க கற்றுக் கொள்ள வேண்டும் !!

நீர் நெருப்பில் பட்டால் மீண்டும் நீராவியாய் முதல் நிலைக்கே சென்று விடுவது போல் !! மனித உயிர் தீய சொற்களால் புன் பட்டால் தவறான முடிவுகளால் தன் முதல் நிலையை அடைந்து விடுகிறது !!

ஒவ்வொரு மழைத்துளியும் மண்ணைச் சேரும் முன்னே லட்சியமின்றி காற்றில் அலைந்து ஆடும்!! ஆனால் மண்ணை சேர்ந்தவுடன் அம்மழைத்துளியின் சேவை எல்லையில்லா அளவை எட்டி விடும் !! அது போல் மனித உயிரும் தனியாய் இருக்கும் காலத்தில் வீணாய் சுற்றித் திரியும் !! ஆனால் இன்னொரு உயிருடன் சேரும் போது அவ்வுயிரின் சேவை எல்லையில்லா அளவை கடந்து விடும் !!

நீர் இருக்கும் போது அதன் அருமை நமக்கு தெரியாது !! வரட்சியின் போது தான் அதன் அருமை தெரிய வரும் !! அதே போல் ஒரு உயிர் இருக்கும் போது அதன் அருமை தெரியாது !! அவ்வுயிர் பிரிந்த பின் தான் அதன் அருமை புரியும் !!

உயிரோடு இருக்கும் இக்காலத்தில் எந்த ஒரு பிரிவும் பாராமல் மன நிறைவோடு மனித நேயம் புரிய வேண்டும் !!

நீர் மழையாய் மலையில் உயிர் பெற்று நீரோடையாய் ஓடி நீர் வீழ்ச்சியில் விழுந்து நதியாய் அழகு பெற்று பெருங்கடலாய் மாறுகிறது !! அதுபோல் ஒவ்வொரு மனித உயிரும் வாழ்வின் மேடு பள்ளங்களை சந்தித்து துவண்டு விடாமல் உறுதி பெற்று பெருந்தலைவனாய் பெருங்கடலை போல் மாற வேண்டும் !!

நிறமற்று வாசமற்று இருக்கும் நீர் இவ்வளவு இன்றியமையா தன்மைகளை உடையதாய் இருப்பது போல திறமைக்கும் தன்னம்பிக்கைக்கும் எந்த மனித உயிர்க்கும் முகம் தேவையில்லை !! எல்லா மனித உயிருக்குள்ளும் ஒரு இன்றியமையா திறமை இருக்கும் !!

அதை கண்டறிந்து விட்டால் உன் முகமும் ஆறுமுகனைப் போல் ஏறுமுகம் தான் !! 

Self Motivation !!

Trust no one but yourself. Chances, Risks, Mistakes, Misfortunes shouldn’t paralyze you. Just because it didn’t work doesn’t mean you failed. Anger, Lust and Avarice are always a doorway to Failure. Comparison is a thief of joy. Money will solve 97% of your problems. The remaining 3% is up to you. The biggest lie is the lie of your imperfection. Your heart is the best compass. The Slightest of actions are better than the boldest of intentions (Actually Robin Sharma taught me that). It is far better to be exhausted from lots of efforts and learning, than to be tired of doing absolutely nothing. You are going in the right direction when few people start to hate you. But when that few changes to many, then it’s time to change your profession. Perhaps you got talent but you need to work hard to nurture it. Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings. Judging People is a waste of time. Don’t become a Philosopher before you become rich (Actually Shah Rukh Khan taught me that). There’s nothing bigger than self respect. Don’t Stop. Just Keep Going.

People may laugh at your dreams. They may tease you for your looks. They may say you are wasting your time with your Hard Work. Some People may be acting in front of your eyes as a Friend but may be betraying behind your back somewhere. They may be speaking bad about your Hard work and the Progress you are making in your life. There is no need for you to worry about that. In fact don’t even take it to your mind. If you are getting to know about such things take it through one ear and let it go through the other one. They are wasting their time doing such useless things. Instead they could have did something useful in that time like analyzing the steps to progress in their life and career, expressing their love to their loved ones, caring for the needful people etc. Instead they are wasting their time in speaking bad about you. Feel pity for them. Be Happy because of that your fan base is increasing. Even though they are speaking bad about you they are spreading knowledge to people that a person like this exist’s. Who knows somewhere someone may recognize you and will appreciate you through that also. Let the Dogs bark, you have the attitude of a lion and give your Hard Work in the path you chose. You will succeed one day. You will reach the mountain top and they will still be at the bottom, still barking.

NEVER LOSE YOUR CONCENTRATION AND HARD WORK BECAUSE OF UNWANTED DISTRACTIONS !! GAIN MOTIVATION THROUGH NECESSARY TRANSACTIONS OF WORDS FROM SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE !!

Remember the following always!!

If 4 People join hands they can change the fortunes of their Home. If 4 Homes join hands they can change the fortunes of their street. If 4 Street join hands they can change the fortunes of their Area. If 4 Area joins hands they can change the fortunes of their district. If 4 districts join hands they can change the fortunes of their State. If 4 States join hands they can change the fortunes of their Country. If 4 Countries join hands they can change the fortunes of the World. Actually Change is not something which happens outside. Change is something which happens inside each and everyone of us. We should change first. To change the Society and its System. This is did not happen for me !! I did not get this !! I need this for me !! Stop saying these. Instead of using “Me” in everything, if everyone starts using “We”, the change that is needed to make the World a better place to live in can be achieved very soon. Thinking of Each and Everyone’s benefit is an important thing which will take this world to next level.

Whatever situation you are in ! Don’t hesitate to help others. Don’t ever think “Life is so unfair ! Even if you help others without any hesitation and expectation also, in the end its only you, who is getting hit at the back” !! Every situation you go through is teaching you something !! You learn to tackle new kind of People and Situations and so eventually you grow !! If you went through the hell of flames once, give a bucket of water when others go through the same hell !! So that they will not suffer the same !! Learn and Teach !! And that is always a good Motto !!

One thing I believe in is “Being a Ladder in Someone’s life can bring you more happiness than you climbing your own ladder” In Tamil there is a saying like “அடுத்தவன் கண்ணில் இன்பம் காண்பதும் காதல் தான்..!!”

Life is like playing Cricket on a slow pitch!!

Better set your own target and wait for others to make a mistake, so you can succeed easily. Than to chase an already set target from someone. That will be difficult. You may stumble at some point. You may never know even if target is less why it was that difficult to chase. Think about it !!

When someone puts you down !! Don’t lose your hope. Just Do one thing. Smile and Move On. That will kill them. Don’t change your style, character and attitude for those people. Just Ignore them for now and prove them wrong with your Success One Day. Just Work Hard towards that One Day !! ‘When your “WHY” is big enough you will find your “HOW” ‘ means understanding the deep meaning behind your actions will fuel you to the path of success.

Be Happy !! Make Others happy !! Spread Love !! Help Others !! Motivate both yourself and others !! Never Lose Hope !! Never Quit !! If you feel low !! Look at the stars and realize you are just a teeny tiny piece here and there is no need to worry about anything !! Just Love what you have !! Try to live a lovable life !! Whatever it i s, just take a deep breath, call your best friend, vent out all that anger. Talk, Share, laugh, smile and realize that life isn’t that bad if you have such real friends.

Try anything and everything !! Learn new things !! Don’t feel shy !! Always Be Open to learn new things !! We have many things to explore in this life !! Don’t always believe what you hear is right !! Analyze things and get to really know if that’s true !! The Age currently we are is the independent age !! It is the right time to test our capacity, capability in various paths and find our own path !! If we fail today !! It is just a try !! But if we fail after 10 years it will make an impact on everyone in the Family !!! Start now itself !! Fail ! Fail hard !! Only on Failing you will find out which is your path of career in your life !! Don’t work for money !! Work if you really like working in that stream !! If it gives Happiness to you !!

Don’t forget you have to make your family proud before leaving this Earth !! Because wherever you are now they have been the backbone for you !! Making you to stand steadily even during troublesome times !! Never make them feel bad of you !!! Make them Lift their heads high when someone is speaking about you !! If ever you feel low / feeling to quit, just think of your parents !! Think of how much hard work they have put in to bring you to the level you are now !! Even if you are not making them proud !! Don’t make them feel bad about you !! Don’t Quit !! Try Hard !! Harder !! Hardest !! If Life hits you !! Fight hard and hit it back !! Follow your passion and achieve your dreams !!

Life is indeed a Race !!

Some of us think that Life is not a race!! Yes, Life is not a race literally!! We don’t run our race with other people!! This race resides within our self!!

Race between the point we are now and our dream point (Pinnacle of our life)!!!!

This is not about who comes first or last. It’s about who completes their own race successfully designed by themselves whether it is 100m or 200m or even may be a frog race (means your own path in Career)!!

Many People or almost everyone have dreams from their childhood like: “Studying whatever we like, to earn more, to travel all over the world, to help everyone around us in one or other ways, to have a dream job, to get a perfect partner etc etc”

Mostly everyone has set their goals/aims and they are running day by day in their life to achieve that.

But Some people like lot of us are sitting in our Window side bed or on the terrace and we are complaining about our life that “I can’t do this or that ! Thinking that people will make fun of us if we fail or something !! Either to ourselves or to our only companion – The Moon”!!

Please Stop Doing that!! Look around yourself !!

All people are running day after day like a race to achieve their already set dreams and goals. Some people are running ahead, some are still lagging behind, but they are still running. Some People are running to trip/push us and make us fall down. Some people are waiting at the finish point or on the way to the finish point to make fun of us while we fall or fail to complete the race successfully. You don’t worry about such kind of people.

If you fall down or if they make fun of you…In the end it is you who has to get up and complete the race successfully. 

So, fall down, get hurt, bleed once or twice, if someone makes fun of you during your race, Let them do it…You don’t even take that into your ear 

One day after you succeed and your life becomes standard. Those people who are making fun of you, will not even be in your picture. They can’t even show their face to you. they will hide themselves or die of humiliation since you know “KARMA IS A BOOMERANG”!!!

So, Work hard, run your race, fall down, get hurt, get up again and show everyone who you are…Realize your full Potential.

Work Hard in Silence and let your success slap them hard !!! 

Sometimes we get thoughts like “Can’t we Middle class boys achieve Success – A Perfect Partner, Lovable Job, Forever Friendship, Respectable Life”?? 

Nothing is impossible in this World…If you perform well in your Domain of interest…You can Succeed over whatever and whoever it is.

In this world everyone has their unique talent…but they are not exposing it or finding/ realizing it.

One day a situation will come in everyone’s life where they will realize their Talent/ Potential.

Only after then their life literally starts…At that point of time…they will feel they are moving Forward in a particular direction which is a higher point than everyone in this world…That’s the point of Success.

But One point is that ” Stay Focused if u fail…also Stay Humble if u win”. 

Don’t think you can’t achieve things because you r from Middle class.

“Kaluvaadha echa glass lam jeikum bothu unaku ennada !!”

Talent/Potential + Determination + Hard work + Passion = Success 

Please say to yourself often – “One day I am going to make myself proud”. 

Some best examples of Motivation:

1. “THALA” Ajith Kumar – Actor/Racer/ Professor/Mechanic. Initially criticized for his Voice but now the ultimate voice of Tamil Cinema 

2. “THALA” MS Dhoni – The One who suffered a lot during the 2007 world cup loss…also the one who brought home 2011 world up. A young boy with a dream larger than his reach worked as a railway ticket collector before he became a country’s pride and India’s World Cup winning captain.

3. “SUPERSTAR” Rajnikanth and “THALAPATHY” Vijay – You know everything about these men…. Simply inspiring 

4. Vijay Sethupathy and Dhanush – Criticized for their looks in early stages of life, currently the artists with the best acting skills of Indian Cinema along with Nawazuddin Siddique 

5. J.K Rowling – A divorcee, lived on government aid and could only barely afford to feed her baby in 1994. Just three years later her first book “Harry Potter and the Philosophers stone” was published. When she was shopping it out, she was so poor she couldn’t afford a computer or even the cost of photocopying the 90,000-word novel, so she manually typed out each version to send to publishers. It was rejected dozens of times until finally Bloomsbury, a small London publisher, gave it a second chance after the CEO’s eight-year-old daughter fell in love with it.

6. Jim Carey – From the 14 years Child who lived in a Van to the one of the best Comedians of Hollywood

7.  Dhirubhai Ambani – A gas station attendant who didn’t let his circumstances dictate his destiny. Today, his name is amongst India’s most famous sons and one of world’s greatest entrepreneurs.

8. Narendra Modi – I know some people will say why him ??…May be some of us do not like him politically. But look closely the life of his – A common man, selling chais for a living, who was born into a humble family with limited means kept his face up and stared in only one direction – ahead. Today, he is the Indian Prime Minister and one of the most talked about leaders internationally.

And many many Others too ✓✓✓

You must tell yourself No matter How hard it is or how hard it gets. I’m going to make it!!!

One best Story I read:

Once upon a time, a very strong woodcutter asked for a job to a timber merchant and he got it. The pay was really good and so was the work condition. For those reasons, the woodcutter was determined to do his best.

His boss gave him an axe and showed him the area where he supposed to work.

The first day, the woodcutter brought 18 trees.

“Congratulations,” the boss said. “Go on that way!”

Very motivated by the boss words, the woodcutter tried harder the next day, but he could only bring 15 trees. The third day he tried even harder, but he could only bring 10 trees. Day after day he was bringing less and less trees.

“I must be losing my strength”, the woodcutter thought. He went to the boss and apologized, saying that he could not understand what was going on.

“When was the last time you sharpened your axe?” the boss asked.

“Sharpen? I had no time to sharpen my axe. I have been very busy trying to cut trees…”

Reflection:

Our lives are like that. We sometimes get so busy that we don’t take time to sharpen the “axe”. In today’s world, it seems that everyone is busier than ever, but less happy that ever.

Why is that? Could it be that we have forgotten how to stay “sharp”? There’s nothing wrong with activity and hard work. But we should not get so busy that we neglect the truly important things in life, like our personal life, taking time to get close to our creators, giving more time for our friends and family, taking time to read or write the best books, Practicing art, Having a Hobby, Singing our favourite song and dancing for it, Having Emotional long minute Conversations with our loved ones, travelling places around the world, etc.

We all need time to relax, to think and meditate, to learn and grow. If we don’t take the time to sharpen the “axe”, we will become dull and lose our effectiveness

Similarly you may feel like you are depreciating gradually!! And that your confidence is also starting to depreciate!! Actually those are the times when you should not give up !! And indulge into Self sharpening activities like reading the Life Histories of the Favourite Idols how they reached their Pinnacle from Rock bottom !! and other above mentioned list of activities etc

Remember to be Happy, Making others Happy, Spreading Positivity and Love. One Important thing is Smile Always no matter what tough your situation is  !!

Penne II !! – A Short Tamil Poem

பெண்ணே !!

நீ எம்மொழி பேசுகிறாயோ எனக்கு கவலை இல்லை உன்னால் என் இதயத்தின் மொழியை அறிய முடிந்தால் அது போதும் !!

நீ வெந்நிறமோ கருநிறமோ மாநிரமோ எனக்கு கவலை இல்லை உன் மனம் நந்நிறமாக இருந்தால் அது போதும் !!

நீ குட்டையா நெட்டையா என்று எனக்கு கவலை இல்லை நீ எனக்கு உடன் கட்டையாய் மட்டும் இருந்தால் அது போதும் !!

நீ பாடுவாயா ஆடுவாயா என்று எனக்கு கவலை இல்லை நீ நான் மனசோர்வுடன் இருந்தால் ஆறுதலாய் இரு வார்த்தை பேசினால் அது போதும் !!

நீ ராஜாவின் மகளோ இல்லை ஒரு சாதாரண குடிமகனின் மகளோ எனக்கு கவலை இல்லை நீ என்னை ராஜா போல் பார்த்துக்கொள்வாயானால் அது போதும் !! நான் உனை நிச்சயம் ராணியாய் பார்த்துக் கொள்வேன் !!

நீ லட்சங்களை கொண்டு வருவாயா என்று எனக்கு கவலை இல்லை நம் குடும்பத்தை கச்சிதமாக பார்த்துக் கொண்டால் அது போதும் !!

நீ யாரோ !!

எங்கு இருக்கிறாயோ !!

என்ன செய்து கொண்டு இருக்கிறாயோ !!

என்று எனக்கு தெரியாது !!

உனை தேடி வருவேன் !!

உனை கை பிடிப்பேன் !!

உனை மணம் முடிப்பேன் !!

எனக்காக காத்திரு !!

அன்பே !!

நீ 

இக்கணம் ! 

இந்நொடி !! 

இந்நிமிடம் !!! 

என்ன செய்து கொண்டிருக்கிறாய் !!

நான் செய்வதைத்தான் நீயும் செய்து கொண்டிருக்கிறாயா !!

அந்நிலவிடம் என் இருப்பிடம் கேட்டு சண்டையிடுகிறாயோ !!

நீயும் என்னைப்போல கட்டிலில் படுத்துக் கொண்டு கனா கண்டு கொண்டிருக்கிறாயோ !!

நான் 

எப்படி இருப்பேன் !!

எப்படி சிரிப்பேன் !!

எப்படி பேசுவேன் !!

எப்படி நடப்பேன் !!

எப்படி உன் கண்களை பார்ப்பேன் !!

எப்படி உனை ரசிப்பேன் !!

என்ன பாடல்கள் கேட்பேன் !!

என்ன உணவு உன்பேன் !!

எப்படி உனை பார்த்துக் கொள்வேன் என்றெல்லாம் !!

நானும் அதையே தான் செய்து கொண்டு இருக்கிறேன் அன்பே !!

விரைவில் என்னிடம் வந்து சேறு !! இருவரும் சேர்ந்து இவ்வுலகிற்கு “சிறந்த ஜோடி” என்றால் யாதென காட்டுவோம் !! சிறந்த  எடுத்துக்காட்டாய் திகழ்வோம் !!

Penne ! – A TAMIL POEM !!!!

பெண்ணே !

நீ பூலோகத்தில் பிறந்தவளோ அல்லது அந்த தேவலோகத்தில் பிறந்தவளோ என்று நான் அறியேன்.
நீ பூ போன்று மனம் கொண்டவளோ அல்லது அந்த பூவுக்கே மணம் தந்தவளோ என்று நான் அறியேன்.
நீ மலையில் வாழ்கிறாயோ அல்லது அந்த மலையில் பொழியும் மழையில் வாழ்கிறாயோ என்று நான் அறியேன்.
நீ வெயில் பிரதேசத்தில் வாழ்கிறாயோ அல்லது வெயிலின் பின் வரும் அந்த குளிர் பிரதேசத்தில் வாழ்கிறாயோ என்று நான் அறியேன்.
நீ நிலவில் வாழ்கிறாயோ அல்லது அந்த நிலவின் ஒளியில் வாழ்கிறாயோ என்று நான் அறியேன்.
ஆனால் இன்றோ ஒன்று மட்டும் நான் அறிகின்றேன்.
நீ என்றும் என் மனதில் வாழ்கிறாய் என் ஆருயிர் தோழியாய் !! தேவதையாய் !! என் காரிகையே !!

உன் காலடி தடம் பட்டால் அந்த பாலையும் சோலையாய் மாறிடுமல்லோ.
உன் குரலின் இசை கேட்டால் அந்த குயிலும் துயில் கொல்லுமல்லோ.
உன் விரல் நுனி பட்டால் என்னுள் உள்ள அந்த காயமும் மாயமாகிப் போகுமல்லோ.
உன் மூச்சுக்காற்று பட்டால் என் எழுத்தும் சிலிர்த்து போகுமல்லோ.

சிப்பிக்குள் முத்துப் போல்
நீரினுள் மீனைப் போல்
தேன் கூட்டினுள் தேனைப் போல்
முட்டைக்குள் கருவைப் போல்
என் இதயத்துள் உனை வைத்து காப்பேன் !! என் இறக்கை இல்லா தேவதையே !! உன் உயிர்ப் பாதுகாவலனாய்

என் இதயத்துள் நீ இருக்கும் இவ்வேளையில்
இருள் கண்டு பயமானால் கூறு !! அச்சூரியனை விளக்காய் செய்து தருகிறேன்.
தாகம் எடுத்தால் கூறு !! அக்கடலின் உப்பை பிரித்து பானையில் அடைத்து தருகிறேன்.
குளிரெடுத்தால் கூறு !! அவ்வானத்தை உனக்கு போர்வையாய் போர்த்தி வைக்கிறேன்.
வெருப்படித்தால் கூறு !! மேகத்தை பிழிகிறேன் !! அந்த மழை நீரை பிடிக்கிறேன் !! கப்பல் விடுவோம் இருவரும் காகிதத்தால் !!

வைகோவாய் இருந்த நான் இன்று
வைரமுத்தானேன் !! சைகோவாய் இருந்த நான் இன்று செந்தமிழ் பேசினேன் !! எல்லாம் உன்னால் !!

என்னென்ன வேண்டும் தயங்காமல் கேளூ !! எவரஸ்டை செதுக்கி உன் சிலை செய்யவா !!
வானவில் கொண்டு உன் ஒவியம் வரையவா !!
வானத்தின் நீலம் கொண்டு உனக்கு கடிதம் தீட்டவா !!
நட்சத்திர கூட்டங்களை நூலில் கோர்த்து உனக்கு மாலையாய் அணிவிக்கவா !!

நினைத்தாலே இனிக்கும் செந்தேனே !! உனை மறுநாள் காண எண்ணி எண்ணி ஒவ்வொரு இரவும் வெந்தேனே !! உன்னுள் நான் சேர்ந்துவிட்டேன் !! என்னுள் நீ சேர்வாயா !!
சம்மதம் கூறு !! இருவரும் வெண்ணிலவை நோக்கி படகில் செல்வாம் !! நட்சந்திரங்களோடு நட்சத்திரமாய் !!

காலம் கரைந்த பின்னும் கூந்தல் நரைத்த பின்னும் அன்பில் மாற்றமின்றி உன்னோடு வாழ ஆசைதான் ஆருயிரே !!!!

அன்புடன்
@ The Emotional Ink !!

Live your life like you want to !!

We must !! and only we can live our life !!

We will come across many people in life who would say “Why are you having these many arrears ? !! “, “Why are you falling in love ? !!”, “Why are you growing so lengthy hairs ? !!”, “Why are you growing a beard ? !!”, “Why are you always roaming around with friends ? !!”, “Will you not go to a job at all ? !!” “Why can’t you stay in a single job ? !!” 

We have heard this from relatives, also from people who are close to us, also from some random persons etc etc. That is their job to advice something always !! 

Oh that guy said that !! Oh this guy said this !! So I have to change my life accordingly !! Please stop thinking like that !! Only we know about our life !! Only we can live our life !!

We got human birth in this life by “God grace” (which my Mom would say). Be as much Happy as you can and however jolly as you can in this human life !! 
Entertain others, make people laugh, Spread Love and teach people how to love others and make other people happy !! Be Happy and also find Happiness in making others Happy !!

In our Next birth, may be we will get birth as a ghost or a dog or a Crow or a Shark or a sparrow…that is next birth !! Don’t Care about it now !!

Till you are alive….Live Happily !! Live true for yourself !! Don’t Fake your Life for mingling with others !!

Be whoever you are !! Whoever likes you will always accept u for whoever u are !! 

Live a life which you like !! If you want to be a Antagonist (Villain) live as a Antagonist that you love to live !! Don’t act like a Protagonist which for the sake of others as they like it !! 

Find What you like !! And Live that !!Just Be Yourself !!

Let People see the Real, Imperfect, Flawed, Quirky, Weird, Beautiful, Magical Person, That you are !!

Please stop overthinking like you have to have an answer to every feeling or situation. That’s not how life works. We figure it all out by living, by fucking up, by missing an opportunity, by seeking advice and not taking it.

We learn what’s important and what isn’t.

Sometimes we have no fucking idea what to do and it’s scary, but it’s okay.
Always trust your gut and know everything will work out exactly the way it is supposed to be. It always does. Relax, we are never in control anyway.

Remember this: “When things change inside you, things also change around you !!”. If you’re comfortable now. Don’t change you for anything.

Right now you may not be at the place in your life where you wished for long ago !!
You are at a place you don’t like because of some kind of compulsion !!
If you get a boon of going wherever you like !! You will go to that place in life you wished for !!
But after someday you may realize/think that place is also not suitable for you !!
Where you are and What you are doing is not important !!
Wherever you are ! Are you happy there !! That’s important !!
Don’t worry yourself thinking about the things which are not in your hands !!
Live Happily and Peacefully wherever you are now !!

In the last 10 seconds of our life, they say that Our Memories flashes through our mind. We need something right for flashing in that Memory !

Kudremukh Monsoon Trek – An Emotional Roller Coaster of a Trip !!

This is not a Story it is an Emotional Memory !!

I am an IT Professional currently working in Wipro.
Paagal gang: Myself, Zilani (Baba), Athira, Himachal, Ankita Trip Participants: Paagal gang* + Saravanan, Annet, Giri, Vinay, Nivedha, Meena, Lavanya, Pravallika, Siva, Tej, Poonam, Anjali, Asha, Alka, Vikrant I mentioned the following names here because it will be used at places in this Memory and so that you can relate to it easily.

Date: July 28 2019

Today when I stepped into my room, I felt something different inside my heart. Heart Beat was a bit Faster !! I was Excited !! Felt good emotionally after a very long time !! Had two of the many colors of Emotion within me !!
I was feeling Odd and Happy both at a time !!
What happened to me !! Why am I happy !! Why am I feeling odd !!

Rewind –> 3 Weeks ago :-

Myself and Zilani were discussing about how each others life were !!
I have gone through many depressive feelings and incidents in the Past 2 months !! I was feeling a lot alone !! Although I have not shown it outside !! I was in search of something to give me hope of getting myself back which I lost during the two months !!
I am neither an introvert nor an extrovert, but an intersection of both which can be called as something like ‘Inter-extrovert ‘ (A new term I invented for People like me).

I am the type who needs a Middle ware to connect to the downstream systems for data transfer and achieving a successful connection !!

Zilani served as a Middle ware for me to find New downstream systems ( Friends ). I got three new friends in a short span of time !! Three completely Paagal (Crazy) characters similar to him !!!! Just laughing ! laughing ! laughing ! when we five are together !!

It all started on a great day where I felt like College days again. We went on to a team dinner to Sigree Global grill !! And those three Paagals along with the biggest Paagal (Zilani) came with me to Team Dinner. Himachal (one of the paagal) was new to the office that day !! It just started with “Come !! Sit with us here and eat” !! to “I felt my college days yaar !!” from Ankita’s mouth (Second of the paagal) !!
We had gone through many idiotic and stupid questions which would have been crazy for others but not for us !!! In the End only we realized that we didn’t even ask Himachal her real Name !!!!!!

It all started there and gradually day by day we started having Lunch together and I started going to Breaks after a long time in office !!…Thus a Cool Paagal Friendship started !!

One Day we were all having lunch and we were discussing how our Manager was always saying “We can go for trip yaar! Chalo !! He will say !! But also the company will not give a single Rupee for the trip !! He will say !!” But it was never getting into plan since there were many Factors which were demotivating or stopping it from occurring !!

We then in one fine lunch time started discussing about our Previous trip experiences like Zilani was blabbering as usual about Leh to Ladakh Adventure, Pune Places, his Jharkhand trek to reach his home in the forest and all !!! , I was explaining about Kodaikanal which was the best trip for me till 2 days before this date and some other falls I visited !! Athira (Third of the paagal) said she went for Night trek in Skandagiri with friends which was organized by an Event Management Group called “Eventshigh – Nammatrip”. Ankita recently had a rocking party in Pondicherry !!

Don’t know why, but may be because of jealousy of each other’s trip experience or something I am not sure but we had a crave to going on a trip together ASAP to have as much fun as possible !!

It started there !! The Tour Plan !!

Both Me and Zilani went and asked our manager about the trip planning we did but we got the same reply as I mentioned above !! So we (Zilani and me ) discussed about it for a long time and also thought about the obstacles we will face in Completing this trip successfully !! But we went ahead !! Since we had a count of 5 already !! We thought if we make it to 10 also !! We would have a great fun filled trip together !!

There are many companies working for Philips (Client) in M2 Office !!
We don’t know anyone personally other than professional purpose in the other Teams (CTS, ITC etc) which are available in the office !! So we decided to send a Mail to Wipro People alone first. And we sent one after some hilarious decorations in Outlook !!!!. We made a voting option there to select “Yes” or “No”.
Initial reaction from people was a slipper shot for us !!

We got 5 “No” within 1 min of sending the mail !! Not sure if they even read completely the mail !! And People started ignoring our Mail !! It was more Frustrating !!

It was disappointing !! Then Came the first light !! Vinay bro said He was coming !!
Then I went and discussed this with Annet, Giri and Saravanan !! They were also equally excited and fond of a trip with us together !!
But they never voted “Yes” that day. That made a lot of demotivation to our plan that day !! When people so close to us are not voting ? Then what !! Me and Zilani were discussing about it that evening (all were negative thoughts).

By the EOD, we decided to go ahead of the trip no matter what count we get !!

So we fixed a date ( Aug 3 and 4) for the trip but said that the place will be decided based on the count of people later !! And sent out a second mail !! Then we got some response from some people. we got a Par count of 10 as Yes and in that 5 are Paagal Gang !!!! We thought okay let’s move on with this and decide our location !!
So we had a meeting the next day along with the manager and discussed about the various places we could visit !!

Famous Places of South India like Kodaikanal, Gokharna, GOA, OOTY, Wayanad came into discussion !! But Me and Zilani did some research in Google before that meeting !! We had three places in mind – Kodaikanal, Gokharna, Chikmagalur (which I heard is awesome place from one team member who has a friend there !!)

First we got a BOMB from Vikrant that it should not be too long distance since our trip can be only of 2 days as our manager said !! Actually we should thank manager for that !! Or else we would never have been to that Paradise ?? !! Kodaikanal got rejected since it is dangerous to visit at this point of time because of landslides !!
Gokarna got rejected because of distance !! In the end we decided Yes !! So Chikmagalur is our place to visit !!

We went back and sent a mail again indicating the place we are going to trip and asked if all 10 members are okay with that !! May be since we had a thought that we had a slight chance of attracting more number of people through that mail we sent it to every 30 Wipro members again !!!! But No response !! Only those 10 agreed yes we are going to Chikmagalur on Aug 3 and 4 but with some exceptions / doubtful things in mind !!

After sending that email we came back to Cafeteria with Paagal Gang to elaborate that Trip and decide on the plan expansion !! We thought about how costly and difficult it will be if we have to manage each and everything like travel, Stay, Food, Guide etc separately !! It felt Hectic !! So we thought about alternate plans !! Athira’s recent Skandagiri night trek was managed by Namma trip of Events High !! And she said that trip was awesome thrilling experience and Namma trip was up to the level !! So we checked through their website if anything related to Chikmagalur was available !

We had hit the Jackpot !! Kudramukh trek !!!!!

We read through the itinerary, it was exciting
First Day : Trek to Kurinjal Peak of Kudremukh Range via Dense and Damp Forests !!
Second Day : Short trek to Elneer Falls and then Coffee Plantation Visit
This was more than enough for 2 days and they mentioned in the website about all the facilities they will provide !

We got a contact from Namma trip – ‘Sagar’ !! We called him, pinged in WhatsApp, again called him and asked him details of the trip !! It was convincing – all the details although I had a doubt of something !! but since Athira had went with them to Skandagiri trek already once, that got us a lot Confident about them !! We discussed with Sagar day to day about the updates on trip – like how members are coming, when we will pay etc etc !! Then One day One more BOMB came from Giri !!!!!!!
He said that he is opting out of the plan since he had important things to do on Aug 3 and 4 (His father’s birthday and some temple Thiruvizha (Festivities) in his Hometown )

Already it’s 11 if Giri doesn’t come !! One more person also will not come We thought !! Okay Now how to deal this !! We made a meeting again and we decided preponing the trip dates 1 week before to July 27,28 !! We thought it will be attracting more people to trip since some said because it is Aug 3 and 4 we cannot come !! But F*** they said the same shitty reasons for July 27,28 also !!

Now the Final list was made it was 11 members – Zilani, Me, Shivakshi (Himachal) , Athira, Ankita, Saravanan, Giri, Annet, Vinay, Vikrant, Siva !!
Then we sent out a Email again like Dates are preponed !! Location is fixed now !! Send money to us !! But to explain the itinerary of the trip we need to have one short meeting we decided !! So wet met again in a break !!

But My mind was still thinking of adding more people to the trip because for me I have a “logic more people is more fun” !! I made a master plan !!!! – Which Only Annet Knows !!!. Let me tell u !! I asked if her friends will come to the trip if called !! She said I doubt but let me confirm !! But I was firm in adding members !! So I asked her to go to her friends and say Mr.X coming to the trip !! And also to go to Mr.X and say that her friends are also coming to the trip, Because Mr.X was close to that gang !!!!

Now that’s a Double Dhamaka !!!!!!!!!!. Her friends approximately accepted to come to trip but they said they will confirm after sometime !! Days passed and we got no response !! One fine evening Annet came to us and said her friends are coming to the trip they are 6 in number !! I was that much Happy that I want to go throw something on to Zilani Baba’s face !!!!!! We had a meeting that day again !! The penultimate meeting !! Where we did some self introductions to get to know each other !!

I had three fears regarding the trip and it’s outcome !! and I explained that to everyone:

  1. Everyone should mingle with each other !! No one should feel alone !!
  2. At the End of the trip, No one even one of us should ever think !! “Che!! Oh Shit !! why did I come to this trip ! My time was wasted completely”
  3. The demotivating and brainwashing factors are still active inside the ODC !! I want all 17 of them not get demotivated !!

I wanted this trip to be very exciting that this should be the first of many best trips to come !!

Later that evening Annet again came and said only 2 of her friends are coming to trip !! Next day she said again only 5 may be coming !! One is not coming because of a ROFL reason!! Motion Fitness as per Zilani Baba !! Utterly disappointed !!
At least now we got 16 People !! Then it increased day by day to 19 !! We had to do some convincing and brainwashing to make that 20th person to come for the trip !!
We made a WhatsApp group and it took a lot of effort from my side to make each one talk in the group !!!!!…Some times in was only one talking !! I ask questions and I answered them myself !! So checklists came on the last before day !! It was said that leeches are more during the trek !! So everyone should bring “Salt” – which someone said is a best way to remove leeches if they bite and also to stop leeches from biting !!

We saw some culprits that night buying something secretly in Easy Bazaar while we were doing the same thing !! And so on 26 July 2019, Our First trip from Philips Started !! It was like launching a rocket from ISRO for me !! I was feeling speechless when the Bus started from Manayata Tech Park, Bangalore !! Poonam was taking video of everyone asking them who they are and where they are going !! My turn came and I was so speechless at that moment I can’t even open my mouth !!

Is this really Happening !! Am I sitting in a bus with many unfamiliar faces and going on a trip to an unknown place believing the unknown organizer !! Yes I was feeling very high !! Without even Drinking ( # I am a Teetotaler)

Then we had some snacks and some people were having chicken roll which they bought for dinner since many had to go from office directly and bring things back to bus in a jiffy !! So they bought dinner while walking towards the bus !! Thanks to them they bought extra also !!

But I was not like that !! I took a sick leave on July 26 and went to ‘Dear Comrade’ movie in the morning !! Bought some snacks for the trip after the movie and had a good sleep in my bed for 7 hrs before the trip !! I was very excited !! Bus moved some distance out of Bangalore !! Everyone were starting to sleep !! So my speechless times settled down and Ankita, Me and Zilani Baba started dancing to a Tamil song – “Kodanu Kodi song !! Huuuu!! HuHuHu HuHuHU !! HuHUHU HuHuHU !! Hoo uuu uuu !!” We did that famous step !!!!

That brought Everyone live in the bus although everyone did not contribute dancing – ( “the initial shyness” which Baba thought me is always useless !!). Then the driver stopped at some place for dinner !! There we saw SEE-SAW !! , Wooden Swing !!, slide !! Merry go round !! Hahaha !!!!!!!! Did 90’s kids things playing all that !! Then Dinner got over and we started again !! Again everyone started sleeping so Me, Saravanan, Giri had to sing song lyrics together while playing songs to wake everyone up and active but still we failed to some extent and even we started sleeping !!

We the last benchers of the bus had a sweet time with speed breakers in the night and half deep sleep !!

Once both me and Giri should shouted “*Tha!! In chorus !!!!!! that too in half sleep !! We calculated how much height we reached by each speed breaker !! It was very very uncomfortable for us there!! 6 hrs journey prolonged to 8 1/2 hrs due to some battery issue with the bus !! All night I had only one thought !! Everything should go well !! Everyone should feel happy !! That fear was still in there !!

In the Morning by 6 o’clock we reached a Place which was filled with Dense Fog !! The scenery just looked “wow” !! We all got down !! And the Namma trip Organizers guided us towards the room where we are about to stay !!

Feeling Happy that at last we reached the destination I was climbing the stairs of that building with excitement!! The guide showed us out rooms !! We opened the door of our room ! My heart stopped ! That was open hall type room with some shitty Bed Sheets and Mats which were laid down on the floor with no cot !! I went outside at once !! Next to that was bathrooms which they said is common for both boys and girls ?? I was feeling something very bad inside !! I was feeling angry !! I was getting a feeling of shouting a very bad word loudly in front of everyone !! But I controlled myself Home stay eyyy !! Home stay eyyy !! Oh F** !! What just happened “All three fears which I thought should not come !! Came into me again !!” I thought maybe some mistake happened !! So, Baba and me went down to speak with that Nammatrip organizers !!

And that guy was saying yes this is what is called Home Stay !! This what Sagar asked to give us !! I got angry, frustrated, sad, all bad negative feelings at once !! I went inside to check what that building actually was !! So I went around it !! I found something !! Oh shit !! It was a Kalyana mandapam (Marriage Hall) !! I wanted to slap Sagar so hard that he should never ever take someone to a spot like this again and tell them this is called Home Stay !! We wanted to call Sagar and kill him with words !! But no one had signal in their mobile phone !! And the BSNL phone had no balance !!

So we took the phone from the two guides Vicky and Dhilip !! Zilani did right and left to Sagar on the phone !! But that Sagar guy was giving some invalid reasons in justifying this !! So each one took a chance to show our anger towards him !! Especially Miss. Himachal ( Our Fake Manager !!!!!! ) gave him some word slaps !!
Then they said that they will give a complete real one home stay to us which has 3 rooms and one hall and many separate bathrooms !!

We agreed to that and was hoping for the best !! It was decided that we will go to trek directly and then from there directly we will shift to that New Home stay !! Then we freshened up with whatever available in that Kalyana mandapam !! We planned to leave as soon as possible from there to trek !! I was so excited for the trek !! But meanwhile those 3 fears were still running in my mind !! Wherever I go !! Whatever I do !! They are still running in my mind and killing me !!

We did some rough freshening up !! Came down to have break fast !! For breakfast we had 2 stone idly, one Good Vada which they said they will give only one like in a College Mess !!, and some type of rice which no one can find what it is !!
I used to tease Ankita !! U know in Somalia How they are suffering !! U are wasting food and all !! But that break fast except Vada, I threw everything completely into dustbin !!

I was feeling all bad colors of Emotion !! I can’t even laugh at a joke !!
Deiiii Sagarrrrrrr !!!!!!!! Then we waited for half an hour or something for the bus to arrive and take us to trekking point !!Meanwhile we played football in the open area outside that Kalyana mandapam !!!!!! Poonam was doing some crazy things here and there which was ROFL and Litf !! But those 3 fears were still running in my mind !! I thought of what these people will say when we reach office !! Already there are some demotivating factors in the office active !! What will happen !!

Oh God !! I was thinking deeply !!…then suddenly I turned for something and the football came directly towards my face via Poonam’s hands ??…WTF !! ??????…All my thoughts disappeared suddenly and I started chasing her to take revenge and meanwhile everyone joined and we played football together !! Not a match but something !! Himachal was challenging me to hit the ball straight into her face !!!!!
Then the bus came and the guide Vicky who is our guide said that bus is ready and we can start our trek to kyatanamakki hills !!

Wait what !! I asked !!

Kyatanamakki hills !! He replied

WTF !! Again happened !!
It was Kurinjal peak which we decided !! Not the Kyatanamakki or **thanamakii hills !! We called Sagar again and he was blabbering something to us that this is best than Kurinjal Peak !! This that !!

Oh shit !! No No No !! Please Please the slope is going bad and bad !! Everything is getting bad and Bad !! We called Sagar and each one took a turn in scolding him like anything !! Best One came from Vinay bro !!!!! He just shut him off !! And we finally got a first positive response !! Kurinjal peak trek of Kudremukh is ON !! I was feeling Something good at that time !! We got into the bus and they dropped us off at the Trek starting point after crossing some Forest Rangers check posts !! And here we are finally ready to start the trek !!

A Wave of thrill went inside me at the start of the trek !!

People started taking precautionary steps washing their legs with salt water !! Applying salts on their legs and shoes etc etc !! But I never cared !! I had self belief !!! And Trek started !! We went through some beautiful line of trees and plants which filled out the lungs with a good amount of fresh oxygen !! I felt happy !!

After crossing the line of trees , we started walking to the damp forests where the worst fears are waiting !! It was extremely damp with an awesome look !! Got Avatar Feel while seeing broken trees here and there !! A very tall tree too !! It was damp everywhere and there were little demons hiding everywhere to attack !! Yes the Leech army !!

Many people hesitated to dance in the bus !! But now I can see people dancing everywhere to check if leeches are there in their shoes for each and every step !! It was fun everywhere around to see that people who applied the salt more were the first to get attacked by the leeches !!!!! Siva was playing songs and he was the fastest and the bravest one moving around before everyone !!

Everyone forgot that tactics to stop leech attack is to walk fast !! Instead they stopped here and there for checking and got 2 extra !!!!!! So we moved towards the Kurinjal peak via the damp forests for a long long time some surviving leeches and some with bites. It was an 18 KM trek to and fro !! The slope got steeper steeper as we climbed through towards the hilltop !! The bushes were getting nearer and route very very narrow !! We had to help each other in climbing the slopes which were Nearly vertical !!

After some long struggle of climbing we reached a view point !! not the peak but a viewpoint !! The scenery was so astonishing that if there was a chair I can sit all day and have a view at it without getting bored !! We did a Boomerang there !!!! Oiii Himachal !! Throgi !! Posted it !!!!! Had an awesome feeling !! Thrilling to watch clouds nearby !! Then started climbing again towards peak !! Some of us thought of giving up on the middle !! Even I had that thought at one point !! I wore jeans which made it difficult to climb very vertical slopes !! But we motivated ourselves and moved forward without hesitating and thinking about anything else !! Only thought in our mind was reaching the Peak !!

We motivated ourselves saying we reached !! Only a bit more !! Only a bit more !! But it was going on and on !! At last 19 out of the 20 of us reached the hilltop !! I was proud that all girls climbed the Kurinjal Peak !! Salute !! Queens !! No one gave up till the end !! 4 of the 20 of us went one more level high and were doing yoga sort of things at the peak edge !!!!!!! Reaching was a good feeling !! The view was awesome, we could see nothing except the clouds !! It was like we were standing in a balcony and could see nothing down !! At times we can’t even see each other !! We found something new that day !! Every time rain would come from top to bottom but on that peak rain was coming from bottom to top !!…Umbrella need to be shown down instead of upwards !!!! Hahaha !!! Awesome Experience !!!

Felt first Cloud Nine there !!

We spent half an hour or something sitting in the peak top and having some fresh air and chillness !! Then we climbed down !! I was hungry as hell !! I ate only once in the 2 day till the time we reached the peak !! We had lunch packed in our hands by Namma trip Organizers but since hands are dirty and water bottles got empty we were not able to eat !! Some washed hands in the rain !! And some ate with spoons !! But deep down I was feeling very hungry !! I was hoping for best in the new Home stay !!

Then we climbed down with each careful step. It was raining in patches in the mountain !! Rain was making our climb down tough !! But together we managed climbing down the steep slopes together !! Then everyone split into groups and I had a thought to check how everyone was feeling about the trip !! So I just got into each group once in 2 KMs !!

Initially we were going together !! First Gang Himachal, Athira, Ankita !! Then I got to the second gang Nivedha, Meena, Anjali, Poonam, Zilani Baba ( You know about Zilani Baba – travels only with girls !! Hahaha!! ), then the third gang – Giri, Annet, Asha, Siva, Vinay, Alka and then fourth ( Actually not a gang !!! Me and that Forest ranger alone !!!!) He showed me a foot long leech or earthworm or a combination of both I don’t know !! The ranger was taking video it !! He told me that he had to show it on the check posts to identify what species was that Even he doesn’t know !! He was doing a good job !! He picked up all the plastic papers thrown by trekkers on to the forest areas and he was feeling responsible for that !! Felt good of him !! Salute !!

Then I joined a new gang whom I don’t know !! They were all together 15 people may be !! They were singing together in various languages in making them stop realizing the long distance they had to travel down the hill !! Then I joined the final gang Vikrant, Pravallika, Tej and Lavanya !! And I climbed the peak successfully with them towards the bus !! I got a very good feeling travelling with every gang and felt that everyone was happy and thrilled of the trek experience !! This was a first trek experience for many !! For me it was number 4 !!

After reaching down the mountain the real fun started !!!!! Everyone were finding leeches in their bodies !!!!! And the blood flow never stopping if we pull out the leech !! Siva was the major victim who had couple leeches intertwined inside his shoes !! Many were having leech attacks on them except Me, Giri and Meena !!

Marked Safe during Leech attack !!!!!!!

Then we proceeded towards the new Home stay which we hoped for the best !! They dropped us in the middle of the road and said that we have to walk half a kilometer to that home stay !! Already our legs were paining as hell ?? !! But still excitement was there about the Home stay !! I was hoping for the best !!

The path to home stay had a rope bridge which was dancing in the air if more than 5 people stepped on it !! It was a great feeling to walk through that rope bridge !! And then we reached the Home stay !! I went towards it and from in front of the door of that stay I looked around !! Just Wow !!!!!! This was the only building there which was surrounded all around by mountains and forests !! Sounds of frogs, birds, crickets and some weird sounds came around !!

Felt second Cloud nine there !!

It was my dream spot !! I wanted to live a life at the end of my days in such kind of spot !! I got a chance now itself for a rehearsal !! We were welcomed warmly by the Family living in that home !! They gave us Hot tea !! And some onion pakoras !!!!! Oo!! Hoo!! Hare yaar !! We have done it !! Can’t express in words the pursuit of happiness we had there !! One by one we took baths and freshening up !!
We thought sending girls first to bath was important but sorry that was a wrong decision !! One was taking 1 hr to bath !!! And Zilani Baba suffered because of that !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So we decided against our decision and all the boys 8 of them completed their bath in half and hour !!! Then girls resumed again !! We were all refreshed up !! We sat together and got to know each other !! Independent of the languages we spoke !! We had been laughing hard on everything which came from our mouth !! I felt I found a Gang there !! We sat there talking talking talking !! Everyone was excited and No one left their place !! I thought “Really are these the people who were hesitating to speak a word in WhatsApp group ?” !! And Now we are fluent in speaking openly whatever we want !! That was a completely warm feeling !!

Then we had set up a Bonfire/ campfire !! And we did some truth or dare and the details of which cannot be exposed !! Sorry !! Then we had a great dinner !! Chapati!! Chenna!! Rice !! Sambhar !! Papad/Appalam!! Payasam !! I was waiting for this feast !!! Then after dinner again we resumed Campfire for sometime !!

Then 13 of us had a plan…others went to sleep !! The plan was Bluff game !! The best thing we did to interact with ourselves during the trip !! First game I was targeted since I said I was a King of bluff !!!…but I showed them why I was called that !!!!!…Poor Meena and Poonam !!!…Fell for all the traps !!!…Bluff gave me a realization of Friendship there !! We played on and on till one of us thought to sleep !! It was 2.30 or something when we ended the game !! We were laughing hard and shouting like anything without caring who is sleeping and who is not !!! It was an awesome feeling !! Pravallika and Saravanan !! Pass Pass persons !!…Giri !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hahahaha!!!! Poor guy !!!. It was decided Girls would sleep in bedroom and boys in the Hall. So everyone went to sleep knowing about the next day’s plan of waking 7 in the morning to go to the falls !!

Sleep was not coming for me !! I went outside and had some alone time with the Nature !! Sitting on the outside Veranda of the house in a Chair !! Tube light was on !! I started typing what and all I did till that point about the trip how it started ? and where it is now ? in my phone !! Which had absolutely no signal at all !! I wanted this life !! No WIFI !! No Facebook !! No WhatsApp !! No memes !! And I got it for 2 days !!
Then after some half and hour I went to sleep in a cozy, comfortable Bed with a warm sheet of blanket !!…Feeling Heaven !

I never knew when I slept !! Suddenly I woke in the morning because of an unwanted alarm !!…Felt very good of the sleep I had!! Can’t even get up from bed !! It was that comfortable !! Chill !! Cozy and Comfortable !! Then we some of us refreshed up !! Especially those who never played cards with us !! And we sat in outside Veranda and had some morning talks about the slopes and twists which happened in the trip !!

From absolute 0 to complete 100 we reached !!

We had some good talks about various places to visit in upcoming trips and all !!
And about the scenic beauty of the place we were sitting !! And many other topics came into the picture !! We were just communicating on and on and on for more than 2 and a half hours !! Then we had a great breakfast !! Karnataka style !! Rice balls !! Chutney !! Vermicelli Pulav !! Sweet Bonda !!!!!! Some missed Sweet Bonda !!!!!!!!!!!!

Then we were in two mindsets !! Some were afraid of coming to the falls being afraid of leeches !! Some of us want the falls for compulsory !! Heard that it will be the best one of this trip !! Since time went late !! We wasted more time wantedly to stay in that Cozy comfortable middle of the forest house !!!! So we had a choice of either Coffee Plantation or Water Falls !! We boys decided we can’t skip the falls no matter what !! We bade Goodbye and our hearty thanks to the family who gave home stay for us !! Took a Photograph with them !!

And then we decided to move towards the falls !! It needs a Short trek there for that Falls !! Except 3, everyone decided to go towards the falls no matter what leeches are there !! Actually leeches were very less there !! In fact near waterfalls !! It was absolute Zero !! It was a good comfortable short trek to the falls from paradise !!!!…Only 4 of us went inside the falls to have the feeling of water !! Ooo!! We had awesome feeling inside the water !!…it had awesome view !! Water was falling at such height and speed that at a point where it hits you can feel like someone threw a big rock on u !!!!!! The Best Falls I ever visited !! Just slept on the rocks for sometime with water falling over me !! Did some Baba yoga !!!! Pranayama !!!!! What a Feel in chill water !! I can say others missed that heavenly feel ??…Saravanan, Me, Poonam and Siva are lucky that we did not hesitate in going inside the falls !!!!!

Just Wow !! Wow Wow !! Third Cloud Nine !!!!!!!!

Best Part of the trip in my point !! Trekking to find a waterfall is the best thing anyone can do in his/her life !! This was fourth waterfall trek for me !!!!!! If they leave me, I can stay there all day !!! under the water !! Then we went back to that shitty Kalyana mandapam and changed our dresses !! And also to check if safe from one more leech attack !!

Marked safe ! Again from leech attack !!!!!!!!

Then we got into the bus and moved towards Bangalore !! Hungry again because of the falls !! I was that hungry that I would kill anyone and eat there !!!! To stop that I had some Short nap in the bus amongst that shitty bouncy last seat speed breakers things !! Then we reached a Hotel Midway around 5.40 PM something !! Hotel name Patanjali hotel !!!!! Litf !! We went inside and I made a very bad decision when I sat among vegetarian !! And the decision went so bad when I chose onion Dosa for dinner …it took 1 hr to make Dosa …I was watching everyone eating Briyani !! Butter chicken !! Naan !! Kulcha!! Mutton Curry !! Kadai Paneer !! Bla !! Bla !! Bla !!
Oh God !! At Last after a millennium Dosa came !! And the rivalry started there !! # Meena atrocities

After Dinner we got into the bus !! And I wanted to end this trip in a high note !! I wanted that high Josh in everyone !! So I asked for Gang Style song to play !! Which was the seed of all that happened aftermath !! Almost everyone Danced !! That too continuously for more than 2 hrs of dance that too in the bus !! And I started liking some Hindi songs also there !!! It saw best dancer Ankita to the worst dancer Zilani Baba !!! Baba all natural steps !! Cigarette steps, Pan Masala steps, Body spray steps, Leech Steps, drinking steps ON ! ON ! ON! “DJ Nivedha Paatu poda !! Adhuku Naanga ellarum aada orae kootha irndhuchi ” When Poonam joined Baba became Litf ….that too that jinguh !! Jinguh !! Jinguh!! Jinghat !! Aaaah!!! Song Awesome !! Awesome !! yaar

It’s a Dream Come true for me !!

I wanted to find more friends here since I was feeling a bit lonely before some days !! It started with One and Now ended up 20 !! Best Gang !!

Travel makes one modest !! You see What tiny place you occupy in the world !!

Well said !!

Feeling Happy in sharing my most Emotional Memory here !! Readers !! If you feel low at any point of time in your Life !! Just take a leave from your work !! Go for a Vacation !! Travel Places !! Get to know People !! Be Crazy !! Have Fun !! Try Finding Happiness in Every Little things in Life !! Continue Reading !! Travel without Travelling through Reading !! Bazinga !!

Follow your Passion !!

If someone says ‘I believe in you’ to achieve something they want !! Just say them in the face, Please never believe in me !! Because Believing in one is easy !! But carrying that belief is so hard and it is a burden !! You live like what you want !! I will live like what I want !! I can’t do what you say because you believe in me !! Please give freedom to everyone to succeed in what they want !! Let them follow their passion !!

Don’t force this “Middle Class Happy Living Procedure” on anyone !! Let them follow what they want !! Let them Fail once !! Let them get hurt !! They will gradually learn from everything they face !! They will grow through what they are going through !!

When you say I have to succeed in my Life in something man to your friend !! And he replies like what do you know man ? !! In what will you succeed ? !! Just Take your slipper give two slaps with it on his cheeks and Cut his Friendship there !! Have Supportive Friends around you always!!

Because in my young age I never had proper guidance !! I have chosen my path with the flow I went and also due to many other external interruptions !! But now I want a specific path for me !! I want me to succeed in something I want for myself !!

But it is very hard, since I am used to the flow I traveled till now !! At that time I never thought about what I want !! I thought about what others want !! But now i am realizing it !! Can I not succeed now ? Can I not grow in a path I want !
Yes I can !!, we can !! Everyone of us can !!

When a Tea seller became Our Country’s Prime minister !! A bus conductor became our Superstar !! A Ticket checker became our country’s World Cup winning Captain !! A Homeless pregnant lady Became an author of a New Wizard World !! A Paper Boy became an ISRO Scientist and President of India !! Anyone can achieve anything !! Everything lies in our self belief and the People we have around us !!

If someone says u cannot !! It is not that you should believe them for what they say !! It is their Capacity with what they are saying u cannot !! People measure others Capacity from their Capacity actually !! But You should believe in yourself !! People will always demotivate !! You should never give up !! You should work hard towards your Goal !! One day you will achieve it !!

You know the worst thing one can do in his life !! Doing a work which he doesn’t like and acting as if he likes it to the core !!

This world will not accept at the beginning if you say I will win !! But if u say whatever after you win, it will blindly believe in u !! Whatever u want to convey !! Succeed in something and then Convey !! Your words will have special power at that time !!
Everything will be clear to you after you realize this !! Start working towards your Goal !! Never depend on anyone !! Start working slowly and silently !! Let your success speak for itself !! Be Simple !! Keep it Simple !! Because Simplicity rules the World !!

That too for middle class people like us !! Opportunities don’t come often !! We have to create it somehow by working hard towards an Opportunity day and night !!

Sometimes by luck Opportunities may knock but it can be only once in your whole life !! If you miss that Chance !! Then you have to feel for missing that Opportunity throughout your Life !!

Be Happy !! Make Others Happy !! Spread Love !! Follow your Passion !! Sculpt your Life like you want it to !! not how others want it to !! Inspired from many things I came across !!

Everyone has a Dream !!

Everyone has a Dream !!

  • Is it ?
  • Do I have one ?
  • Do you have one ?
  • Is it small or big ?
  • Do you think it’s achievable ?
  • Are you working towards it ?

Yes ! Yes ! Yes ! We all have a dream which we wanted to achieve in our life !! That can be anything !!

  • A Simple life with a Cool and Crazy partner who is similar to you in all aspects !!
  • A Big Success in the Career you chose !!
  • A Rich life !!
  • Travelling around every place in the world to get to know new cultures and new people !!
  • Or can also be a Self sufficient happy life with your Family !! etc

“School and college teaches us how to get a job but our dreams teach us how to get a life !!”

This Dream can be there from your childhood or it can grow inside you gradually !! This can be induced due to the situations you face gradually throughout your life !! Or can be induced due to a dream which your Closed ones like Mother/Father could not achieve !!

But altogether Somewhere everyone has at least one dream to achieve in his/her life
So how can you achieve it !! How can you achieve your dream/Success !!

It’s simple – To achieve success (Dreams) you should never be afraid of Failure !! That’s all it takes !! Fail as many times as you can !! As we all know the old saying – “Failure is a stepping stone to success”. Failures will help you find your flaws and makes you correct yourself while taking the next step towards success !!

Remember one thing !! Never Quit, If you face a failure !! Instead of quitting, You could have stopped trying in the beginning itself !! But now you came to at least half or 75% of the distance to fail !! All your efforts and time you spent till now will go in vain !! Cancelling before starting is appreciable than Quitting at half of the path of your dreams !! You can change your path but don’t ever walk back !!!!!!!!

Remember ! You cannot eat the fruit on the day you plant your seed itself !! You have to water your plants and wait with patience !!!

Success works as a Cycle – growth and contraction, balancing and unbalancing – all while you are experiencing hurdles that gets you higher and higher over time !!

Dreams become a reality only through Self Confidence !! Stop underestimating yourself !! You should start believing in yourself !!!! Only then you can accomplish your Big dreams !!

Achieving your dreams is similar to a Trek in a very high Mountain range that too through a rough terrain with Wet Forests, Steep valleys, Narrow Paths, Tall rocks etc etc !! Like Climbing a temple in a hill with more than 2000 steps !! But somehow you have to make up your mind before starting the path of your trek (Dream) that you will achieve it !! Should have “whatever it takes” attitude !! Take each step slow and steady towards your Dream !! There will always be people who discourage you while climbing your steps !! They will say look up it will take a lot to get to the top !! Stop here and come with me, let’s go back !! Never Listen to them !!

Split your dream into small goals !! Achieve the goals one by one !! Take rest after reaching each goal !! Refresh and proceed to next !! Don’t think of the complete distance which you have to achieve in the beginning itself !! It will demotivate you !!

You can’t drink a full bottle of soda in one gulp !! You have to take it sip by sip !!

If you do that your throat is gone !! Some Legends can do but not all !!

Remember !!

Split the distance (Dream) you want to achieve into Kilometre by Kilometre ( Goal by Goal ) !! Sometimes you may find it difficult to cross a particular hurdle in the way of your trek (Path to Dream) !! To cross it you should take help from fellow trekkers ( Good Friends you make along your path of life ) !! Such People can lift you through many hurdles and can motivate you a lot to achieve your Pinnacle ( Top of your hill ) !! Remember Trek will be very boring without fellow trekkers !!

Similarly, life will be very boring without Awesome, Crazy, Lovable, Supportive and Motivational Family & Friends !! Reaching the top of your hill and sitting there alone is not going to make you happy !! You need people to share your happiness you get after you achieve your dreams !!

Remember one thing after achieving your dreams !! After climbing the hill top !! Never Forget about the people who helped you climb !! Once you have reached the top, guide others and make others climb that hill top too !! Show them how it looks from there !! Without taking others with you, even if you shout “I love you all” from there No one is going to hear you !! Achieve your dreams while helping others to achieve their dreams too !! Don’t be selfish or don’t be in haste while climbing, you will break your nose,teeth,bones etc etc !! Go Slow and Steady !! You dreams (Hill top) will never go anywhere !! It is always there to achieve !!

I have read somewhere the following procedure to achieve your dream:

  1. A dream written down with a date becomes goal
  2. A Goal broken down into steps becomes a plan
  3. A plan backed by action becomes reality.

I have read the following Quote somewhere in some book I don’t remember !! I repeat that to myself everyday !!

“Make it Happen Dude !! Achieve your dream !! Shock everyone !!”

When someone says you can’t do it !! Do it twice !! And also take pictures and make it as status 😂😂😂 Or go one step higher and send it to their inbox itself 😂 or if you are a legend make a banner and hang it in your balcony 😂😂😂

Never stop working hard until you are really proud of yourself !! Even after that too !! To stay proud !!

If you want to fly with eagles you have to stop swimming with the ducks !!

Life is like a Test match !! If you hang in there for a long time !! You will get better opportunity to score a good Hundred ( Achieve your dreams). U have to be calm and composed and assess the pitch first ( You will get to know the flaws in you and you can mend that through your innings). In the end you will become both famous, and self satisfied if you hang in there !!

That is what is needed in Life !!

It is not required to hit boundaries all the time !! You can show off with boundaries at times like when you achieve your short goals like Half century, century etc !! But taking each step slowly by singles, doubles,etc and also blocking/ leaving the unplayable deliveries ( tough situations in life) is more important !!!!!!!!

Dream for a Happy Life !! Dream for good long lasting friends !! Dream for a perfect partner who can calm your soul when it’s vulnerable and also who can Crashdown your brain by making you curious of everything she does with crazy silly questions ( Like ‘Haha Hasinii’ in Santhosh Subrahmanyam movie ) !! Dream for a job for which you will never feel “Why am I going to office today !!”

Don’t waste your time dreaming of useless things !!!

Live a Simple Happy Life !! Don’t make it complex and suffer the torture of this world !!

Example:

Like the dream Samantha explains to Vijay in “Theri” movie !!

“A Beautiful Village with an awesome Climate under the foothills of a mountain where it rains whenever we wish for.
A small house with birds sound everywhere around it.
A Boring job where you can go too late and return home very soon.
Dabba two wheeler.
Daily you should take our Kid to school and pick her up again in that Dabba.
No TV, No Cellphone..We should Communicate only to each other. No one else.
A Cute Puppy. We can name it “Tiger”.
A Cute blissful life without showing anger to each other, without disturbing the outside world.
Only three of us with a beautiful true life isolated from the annoying, Noisy and busy World !!!!
❤❤😍😘🔥” – In the voice of Samantha

Live Happily !! Spread Happiness !! Love Everyone !! Follow your Passion !! Achieve your Goals !! Work towards making your Dreams a Reality !!

Remember !!

An arrow can be shot only by pulling it backward !! Likewise When life is dragging you with difficulties just imagine that it’s going to launch you into something great 💪😎🔥❤!!

Be confident in who you are and what you are becoming !! Because you owe yourself in achieving your dreams even whatever it takes !! Let your Dreams be your wings to carry you High over the clouds 🤘🤘🤘😍😍🌟🌟🌟❤❤❤❤🌟🌟🌟🌟

My Dream is to Publish My Novel one day !! I want it to be simple and inspiring !! I dream for eruption of feelings from readers for my words !! Nothing Else !! Want to Make my Family Happy and Proud of Me !! I Owe them that much !! All I believe in as of now is that “One Day 🔥”.

Similarly !! Think of your dreams now and decide on the actions you have to take asap !!!!!! ❤❤❤❤🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟❤❤❤
