Singing with lyrics..

One of the things which I enjoy, playing the song background and singing with the lyrics in front. Sounds easy right but it thrills you. Giving you complete confident entertainment. One key thing to do this, forget any of your room mates misery. Their cries die out in the music and replaces with your tweety sweety voice ;-)

But, one moment which I always cherish during my college day. It happened during our third year tour to Munnar. We went to the Munnar Lake after the boat ride.

Pristine ambience, we guys sat on the bench along the lake and the mist were falling down from the mountains to the lake. The whole lake is being covered by clouds, the chillness in the breeze increased with the backdrop of fading sun light. We thought we would thank the Mother Nature and started to sing a melody song, I think one of Unni Menon's song, it was favourite for Mani and me. And another 5 - 6 guys joined the chorus, I could recollect every moment, the excitement but the credit should go Manikantan.

I visited the same place and sat on the same bench when I went with office colleagues. No one can understand it. Hope I will visit the same bench whenever I go to Munnar and sit for a while.


There are around 350+ HCL consultants working for my customer at onsite alone. This is kind of huge presence for any company or any customer. Two months, I argued with my director about people coming with various ideas and different channels to implement it. Another friend suggested of having a newsletter. My director asked me to take up this and use as medium.

It was very tough to take everyone back to their times where they lived with passions and different interests. I thought this idea of bringing the creativity should help people of refreshing their minds. But, the response was bad or pathetic. Luckily at least 8 people were supporting me and joined of team.

We had no clue of designing or content creation and did not get any support from many people. This was a challenge. We created our own content and designed the newsletter using Microsoft Word 2007.

It was great feeling to work with Word 2007, it removes all the needed softwares for design and gives a plug in to safe as PDF document. So, the magazine was designed with great care and more professional way.

It was published this Monday and the response was too good. I didn't except any positive remarks but it was great feeling. Every one in this Creative team felt good.

It felt great when you drive things and implement your vision to reality. Lot more to accomplish.


I am very bad at watching movies..don't follow any of the Tamil or Hindi movies. After coming here, used to watch lot of English movies, came across all categories worst, great, classic, good and bad. My last Tamil movie would be "Deepavali" when I visited India last year.

Started this year with "Pirivom Sathippom", "Bheema" and lot of movies..this new year really brought a change..Possibly my room mates tend to watch movies, thats the reason I myself end up watching those.

Just now, watched "Kaalai" ... it is better than "Bheema" I hate "Bheema" 80% fight and 20 % songs. Coming back to Hindi movies..we watched RDB, Swades again...very nice to watch..I would also recommend "Iqbal" movie, simple characters and delight to watch.

Current Readings..Lincoln Rhyme

January I took with me "The Third Option" to India, thought would be useful during the travel time. It was just too much build up and did not interest me like Jeffery Deaver books. Probably could pull people related to central intelligence stories..but it didn't interest me.

But, I completed this on my onward leg and I felt the end was incomplete.

After coming back here, read "The Devil wears Prada".. seen this movie already but wanted to read the book. Because I wanted to read how are the characters been portrayed and descriptive words. You cannot imagine to work under a woman like that and felt few of the catchy scenes in movie are not mentioned in the book.

Now, went back to Jeffery Deaver's "The Cold Moon", somehow the Lincoln Rhyme character impressed me a lot. If you had seen Denzel Washington in "The Bone Collector", he is Detective Lincoln Rhyme in the movie. He does really suited for that role, couldn't think of anyone.

So, "The Cold Moon" should definitely been an interesting read.

காதலிக்க நேரமில்லை
பாடலிசை : விஜய் அந்தனி
பாடல் வரிகள் : தேன் மொழிதாஸ்
பாடியவர் : (கண்டுபிடித்தவுடன் தெரிவிக்கப்படும்)
எழுத்துறு : செயின்ட்
என்னை தேடி காதல் என்ற வார்த்தை அனுப்பு
உன்னை தேடி வாழ்வின் மொத்த அர்த்தம் தருவேன்
செல்லரிக்கும் தனிமையில் செத்துவிடுமுன் செய்தி அனுப்பு
ஒ..என்னிடத்தில் தேக்கிவைத்த காதல் முழுதும் –
உன்னிடத்தில் கொண்டு வர தெரியவில்லை
காதலதை சொல்லுகின்ற வழி தெரிந்தால் சொல்லி அனுப்பு ஒ..
பூக்கள் உதிரும் சாலை வழியே பேசி செல்கிறேன்
மரங்கள் கூட நடப்பது போல நினைத்து கொள்கிறேன்
கடிதம் ஒன்றில் கப்பல் செய்து மழையில் விடுகிறேன்
கனவில் மட்டும் காதல் செய்து இரவை கொல்கிறேன்
என்னை தேடி காதல் என்ற வார்த்தை அனுப்பு
உன்னை தேடி வாழ்வின் மொத்த அர்த்தம் தருவேன்
செல்லரிக்கும் தனிமையில் செத்துவிடுமுன் செய்தி அனுப்பு ஒ..
யாரோ ? உன் காதலில் வாழ்வது யாரோ ?-
உன் கனவினில் நிறைவது யாரோ ?
என் சலனங்கள் தீர்த்திட வாராயோ !?
ஏனோ என் இரவுகள் நீள்வது, ஏனோ ?
ஒரு பகல் எனை சுடுவது ஏனோ,?
என் தனிமையின் அவஸ்தைகள் தீராதோ..?

Kadhal thara nenjam kaathu irukku
Kaadhalikka angu neram illaya
Kilayai pol en ithayam thavari viluthe
Ennai thedi kadhal endra varthai anuppu
Unnai thedi vaazhvil motha artham tharuven
Sellarikkum thanimayil sethuvidum munSeithi anuppu..ho
Pookal uthirum saalai valiye pesi selgiren
Marangal kuda nadapathu pole ninaithu kolgiren...
