It seems that the first link is pointing to the song "Ea theeraganaanu - Mayamalavagowla", instead of "Meru samaana - Maayaamaalavagowla". Could you fix this please? Thanks in advance

          An autobiograhy of a middle class man - chapter 3

          21st January 2008

          My story telling attitude, developed into writing, when I was thirteen years old. I started writing stories, in whatever paper available to me. On those days, we could not afford to purchase papers to write. Purchasing the required note books for the school education itself, was a tough task.

          Even though my father's grandfather was a very rich man in the village, having one third of the cultivable lands in the village, by the time my father grew and got married, they were left with no land for cultivation. It appears, my father's grandfather, and my grand father, were selling the available lands for living and for celebrating the marriages of the girls in the family.

          My father was forced to take some lands on lease, and cultivating them with an agreement for a percentage on yield, from those lands. My father was a very strong man, even though, he was vegetarian. When a paddy bag, consisting more than 100 kilos, has to be lifted and placed in the bullock cart to dispatch them to the mills or for home, it will be lifted by two or three labourers (mind you these labourers were non brahmins or Harijans who take non vegetarian). When two or three labourers were engaged in lifting the bag from one side, my father could single handedly do it from the other side.

          Once, when he got annoyed with a person in the village, he could not find any stick nearby to beat him. He lifted the wooden portion of a bullock cart, ( N(M)ugaththadi, which will be 5 feet in length, and having 6 or 7 inches of diametre) where the bullocks are tied to pull the cart, to hit him. People used to tell me that he looked like "bheema lifting Gadha". Luckily that person ran away.

          But my father was very soft by nature, even though he used to talk very loud. He was of very helping nature. He was always silent, talking only if necessary, and never revealed what he felt. But inside his heart, he always had soft corner for all the near and dear and loved every one of them, even though he never expressed it. All our relatives, could not believe themselves, whenever he expressed some concerns for the relatives. All our relatives respected him and appreciated him for his helping nature, except my eldest uncle, who hated him, because my father's mother ill treated my mother.

          In addition to cultivation, he was also procuring paddy from cultivators, and selling them to rice mills, which used to be about 10 kilo meters away. He used to get commission for each bag he has procured and handed over to mills. Even though, he was honest, he was not a very shrewed man and so he incurred losses in agriculture as well as in business. He used to procure things at higher price and sold at lesser price, to meet his demands and everyday requirements.
          When I was doing business, this attitude, was inherited by me, without my knowledge, about which I will explain later.

          He was very courageous man. When the entire people in the village, dare not go out after 9.00P.M, because of the darkness, he used to come back from the mill even after twelve in the night. When people talk and tremble about ghosts seen here and there, he never used to care and fear for anything.

          Once, in my Grandfather's village, when we go to the river bank after dark, we used to hear a feeble woman's sound as "Ayyo, ayyo". The whole village was trembling with fear, stating Visaalam ( a widow who committed suicide, because, she became pregnant after having an illicit affair with a person) is crying. One day, when I was walking with my father, after dark, towards my grandfather's house, I heard the sound. I was scared to death, and was holding my father's hand.

          My father questioned me " why your hand is trembling?' .

          I told him in a weak voice, "Are you not hearing Visaalam crying "Ayyo ayyo?"

          He stopped a while and sharpened his ears. The sound was coming. I told him with more fear, "see! she is crying."

          He laughed, and then told me "there is nothing like ghost."

          "Then, what is this sound. Some lady is crying in a feeble voice "Ayyo ayyao". How can a lady be here at this dark hour in this place?"

          He patted me back and said " you fool. there is no lady here and she is not crying. Look at the distance. There are bamboo trees. When these trees rub with each other, because of the wind, a sound is created, and this sound appears to be "ayyo ayyo".

          "Then why this sound not coming during the day time? Are not these trees rubbing each other during day time? There are winds even in day time".

          He patted me and said," Yes. there is wind even in the day time, and they rub each other even in day. But, during the day, because of the various other sounds, we do not hear that. If you go near the bamboo trees,even in the day time and when they rub, you will hear that. It is very quiet in the night and there are no other sounds, so even this minute sound is heard."

          This incident, made me to think rationally, in every action. I started questioning various aspects, in every incident, and tried to find out whether there is any other angle could be there. It also helped me and induced me to learn more about superstitious things. Otherwise, I would have grown with various ghosts like other village boys, fearing for"Amukku Pisaasu" (Pressing ghost)
          "Kollivai pisaasu " ( ghost with fire mouth) etc etc. I found out scientific reasons for all these various ghosts prevailing in villages(even in cities, at later part of my life) from my science teacher and he used to explain me with great interest, because, he rarely found any student dared to ask very existence of these things.

          There is a proverb in Tamil, "Paambai kandaal padaiyum nadungum" meaning even the army will be afraid of snake. But my father was never afraid of snakes. If he happened to see a snake, he will kill it immediately, if it is poisonous. If he does not find any stick near by to kill it, he used to catch it with its tail, and rotate it over his head four or five times, and kill it by hitting it forcibly on the floor or a nearby stone. In our village, if a snake comes in any body's house, even the male member in the house will shout " call vaithu( that was my father's short name). a snake is here!" and my father will be summoned immediately and he will go and kill it.

          It is a great irony, finally, he died of a snake bite.

          Historic Victory and aftermath

          20th January 2008

          Before, I could exhaust my jubilation over the victory, by Indian Team against Australia, the announcement of team for ODI killed all the enthusiasm.

          It has been proved Australia cannot win all the matches in a row, without sledging, without putting undue pressures on opponents, without the help of umpires and with fair game. Our batsmen did very well, followed by excellent bowling. I thought, after seeing Australia's collapse, we will be bundled out in the second innings within no time. It did happen. Jaffer, Dravid, Sachin, Sourav, failed. Thanks to Pathan , and Lakshman, and Dhoni and R.P. Singh giving a good stand to Lakshman, everything went on well, in spite of two doubtful lbw decisions against India. Anyhow, now it is history, but what happened today, is the mockery of professionalism.

          Why should a team has to be selected before a match to be played, particularly, when you are going to drop some of the in form batsmen? May be, there is no time to select a team after 29th and get them flown to Australia. They could have called the prospective players well in advance and keep them in Australia and make them to watch the match, being played to different conditions, get acquainted with atmosphere and so on. Perhaps, BCCI cannot afford to spend few more dollars, ( even if it is few thousands) because it is very poor. You drop Lakshman, because, you have branded him as a test player, in spite of his excellent performance, every time, in Australia.

          You have dropped Dravid, in spite of his excellent performance in just the previous innings, because, he did not bother to consult Mr. Dilip Vengsarkar before submitting his resignation from the captaincy.

          But what mistake Ganguly has done? Was he not consistent in 2007? Did he not score runs in all the matches he played after his comeback? Was he not very useful in the few overs he was asked to bowl? Is his average in the matches he has played so far, after his comeback, is poorer than Suresh Raina? Is he less experianced in Australian pitches than Suresh Raina? I am not against Suresh Raina. But, he is coming back into the team at whose cost? Players like Shewag and Suresh Raina who have not played one day matches for some time are in, and a player who is playing all the matches, since he made a comeback, not because of his seniority but because of his performance, is out against a number one team.

          What a fools paradise, our selectors are ruling. "The selectors are bunch of Jokers " is not an one time statement, but, it should be applicable for all time. This is the service the Dilip Vengsarkar and co. doing to the nation.

          Why should not the Number one of the selectors come to the press and say, for so and so reasons, in spite of their good form, in spite of their experiences, they are dropped? Can he say this and face the press or he has no reasons to express in public?

          It is time every cricket lover should write and speak wherever possible, for the injustice done to two players, who, together, scored more than twenty thousand runs. We should also put a full stop for insulting players, who have done their best service in their field for the nation. Does the team of selectors have no responsibility to explain to the Indian public the reasons for their actions? Why there is no accountability in an organisation, which is not a Government body?( In India only Governmemnt bodies are not accountable)

          Supposing,(?) if Rahul Dravid and Ganguly score good runs in the next test, where will Dilip Vengsarkar hide his face? Or, how do you expect the players who have been dropped unceremoniously, to give their 100% in the next crucial match, to level the series? Inspite of form, they cannot be selected, because, they are seniors, and youngsters had to be given chance, then how Sachin is retained?

          It is high time, the cricket lovers in this country, must bring an end to these dirty Jokers, atleast forcing them to give some explanation for their actions. Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly are not,day to day coolies of BCCI, that they can be kicked out of their duties without giving any reason.

          The players, who were praised for their oneness in Harbhajan Singh's case, have got one more chance to fight the injustice done to their fellow players, and they should demand at least an explanation from the selection board, because, it can happen to them tomorrow.

          Copying the teacher

          17th January 2008

          I do not know how many of you read Paulo Coelho's blog. I am posting this so that who ever enter my blog should also read this.

          A disciple who loved and admired his teacher decided to observe his behaviour minutely, believing that if he did everything that his teacher did, then he would also acquire his teacher’s wisdom.

          The teacher always wore white, and so his disciple did the same.

          The teacher was a vegetarian, and so his disciple stopped eating meat and replaced it with a diet of vegetables and herbs.

          The teacher was an austere man, and so the disciple decided to devote himself to self-sacrifice and started sleeping on a straw mattress.

          After some time, the teacher noticed these changes in his disciple’s behaviour and asked him why.

          ‘I am climbing the steps of initiation,’ came the reply. ‘The white of my clothes shows the simplicity of my search, the vegetarian food purifies my body, and the lack of comfort makes me think only of spiritual things.’

          Smiling, the teacher took him to a field where a horse was grazing.

          ‘You have spent all this time looking outside yourself, which is what matters least,’ he said. ‘Do you see that creature there? He has white skin, eats only grass and sleeps in a stable on a straw bed. Do you think he has the face of a saint or will one day become a real teacher?’

          Most Powerful Bank

          16th January 2008

          " I start making deposits in your account - not cash deposits, you understand, but contacts. I introduce you to such and such a person, I arrange certain deals, as long as they are legal. You know that you owe me something, but I never ask you for anything.'

          " And then one day..."

          "Exactly. One day, I will ask you for a favour and you could of course, say "No", but you are conscious of being in my debt. You do what I ask, I continue to help you, and other people see that you are a decent, loyal sort of person and so they too make deposits in your account - always in the form of contacts, because this world is made up of contacts and nothing else. They too will one day ask you for a favour and you will respect and help the people who have helped you, and in time, you will have spread your net worldwide, you will know everyone you need to know and your influence keep on growing."

          "I could refuse to do what you ask me to do"

          "You could. The Favour bank is a risky investment, just like any other bank. You refuse to grant the favour I asked you, in the belief that I helped you because you deserved to be helped, because you are the best and everyone should automatically recognise your talent. Fine, I say thank you very much and ask someone else into whose account I have also made various deposits, but from then on, everyone knows, without me having to say a word, that you are not to be trusted.

          " You will grow only half as much as you could have grown and certainly not as much as you would have liked to. At a certain point, your life will begin to decline, you got halfway, but not all the way, you are half-happy and half-sad, neither frustrated nor fulfilled. You are4 neither cold nor hot, you are lukewarm, and as an evangelist in some holy book says: " Lukewarm things are not pleasing to the palate."

            This is a high energy rendition of the classic composition of Mysore Vasudevachariyar. Jesudoss's kalpana swaras, although not elaborate, are thrilling. A very enjoyable clip.

              Thirukkural - An ancient Tamil lietature of Moral Science Chapter 1

              12th January 2008

              Couplet 2

              The second Thirukkural is as follows:

              Katradhanaalaaya payanenkol Vaalarivan
              Nattraal thozhaar yenin.

              The break up is like this:

              Katradhanaal aaya payan yen kol Vaal arivan
              Nal thaall thozhaar Yenin/


              Learning and scholarship are of no avail if they do not lead
              One to worship at the wise one’s divine feet.

              Education must make one, think of God. The idea is that the concept of reaching God's feet is the culmination of all birth, which can be achieved only by right learning and appropriate conduct in keeping with such learning. But the end of all learning is universally accepted to lead one to God-head. For, knowledge leads to steadfastness. "The steadfast, having controlled the senses, sits focussed on Me as the supreme" ( Gita 2,61)

              In this respect these Kurallines are of import. similar to the Biblical lines, that " Thou shalt love the Lord, thy God with all thy heart, with all thy soul, with all thy mind and with all thy strength". This is also the natural thing to do, for the Psalmist says, "the human soul thirsts for God like the thirsty land" (Psalms 143:6). This is also what the Holy Koran lays down when it says "We have no knowledge saving what thou hast taught us". ( Chapter 1, Rukoo 3). The right knowledge, therefore, would take one to God. Thus the purpose of all education is categorically laid down here as "the holy one of knowing God and worshipping Him" ( courtesy: Thirukkural by Dr. S.M. Diaz I.P.S. Ph.D.)

              The expression "Vaalarivan" refers to God, of "pure intelligemce". Thiruvalluvar would have expressed as "Iraivan" means "God" in this place, but he never mentioned such words, so even non believers of God also read this and understand the important of education and reach the supremacy which is equivalent to God.

              An autobiography of a middle class man - chapter 2

              10th January 2008
              Chapter 2

              Creating a blog and writing was my desire since I heard about blogs. I was not well conversant with the technicalities of computer. I was postponing it and was spending lot of time on my computer. Quite often the computer used to go out of order, and I had to wait for the technician to come and set it right. Slowly, I gathered confidence, that I can handle this art of technology and started my venture. Incidentally, when my daughter-in-law,was introduced to us, by my son, she told that her hobby was writing, and she was going to write a novel. Her statement woke up the sleeping giant in me and my urge to write was growing.

              Story telling, i.e.,imagining certain things and narrating them, in an interesting way to others was one of my in born quality, and it was once again encouraged by my mother by talking to me and asking me to narrate things to her, during my early days. In my pre high school days, I used to lose my pens quite often, and tell different stories to my mother, whenever I lost one.

              Once, I told her that somebody interrupted me, while coming from the school ( We had to walk up and down four miles from our home to school and back), slapped me on my cheek and taken away the pen. My mother believed that story, and sympathised with me and did not scold me for the loss. Unluckily, the same evening, my uncle (who was the youngest brother of my mother, who was also studying with me in the same school)came home and inquired to my mother, " did Hari get back the pen he lost in the school?". The truth was that, I lost the pen when I was in the school itself and was searching for that. My uncle who was senior to me by two classes in the school, was also searching the pen for me. We walked back home after our search was futile. I parted with my uncle at his house at Thalaiyur which is half a mile before my village
              and then proceeded to my village, building the imagination of a story to tell my mother. I never anticipated that my uncle will come to our home after one hour, and also check with my mother whether I recovered my pen. My mother got annoyed, not only because I lost the pen, but also for telling a lie, to escape from her scolding. At that time she told me sarcastically in anger, "You can start writing stories. How beautifully you narrated the incident and about the person who robbed the pen from you!".

              Even though, I faced admonitions from her for my wrong act, that statement inspired me to become a writer. Becoming a writer was my dream and ambition, since the age of ten, and I wanted to read lot of stories, to build my talent, and subscribing to "Aananda Vikatan" was one of them.

              The school, where we studied, was four miles from our place, and in those days, there was no other mode of transport to go to school, except by walking. There used to be groups to go together, and these groups will split on petty quarrels and join on advantages of going together. My younger sister, my younger brother, and some of my cousins and friends used to form a group and walk to and fro from school. It will take nearly an hour or an hour and half to reach the school. Normally, while going to school, there used to be only chit chats, and the concentration will be only to reach school on time. But, while coming back, we all used to be in a relaxed mood, and that is the time, I started telling stories to my group.

              The stories generally used to be consisting characters of King, Queen , Prince, Princess and Villain, (mostly commander-in-chief of the army). There will be fights, horse riding, sword fights etc. All these stories were mixtures of films I have seen and the stories I have read, with little bit of my own imaginations. As the time passed, I started building up my own stories and I had lot of fans. Other than summer, or before the harvest season, we cannot go to our school by taking the short cut through the fields, and were forced to go through the road only, which is one mile more than the short cut route. This gave lot of scope for stretching my imagination to narrate the story, until, we reach our village.

              My mother was always admirer of my lies, I mean, my imaginations and build up of stories. She sincerely felt that I have the talent to become a writer one day.

              Once, after reaching Hyderabad, for my higher studies, I happened to write a letter on the occasion of my Grandfather's cousin's sixtieth birth day. The letter had beautiful narration of the characters of the person who was celebrating, his wife, his sons, and the close relatives, and was written in chaste Tamil. It appears, that the letter was read in public on the occasion, and everybody clapped and appreciated the letter. It seems one lady came and told my mother "I have not seen your son. But, I like to see him. You are very lucky to have a son who can write like this." My mother proudly told me this, when I went to my village for vacation. ( to be continued)

              Your story about your story-telling talent stimulated by your mother is itself a storey within a story and it is very fascinating. It is amazing what one's parents can do just by listening to their kids. Awaiting your next installment.
