Guys, this song Natpinile...Natpinile... from Kadhal Kondein is driving me Crazy.

When ever this song comes in my Playlist.. It loops atleast 10 times and gets tired !!!!!! before moving to the next song....

What a soft melody number by Yuvan and rendered by Ranjith.

The Lyrics of the song goes as :

Ullukule Ullukule Aaariyam Ennangal Oooduthadi...
Athanayum Athanayum Unthan Paarvai Theduthadi...

Ippadi Naan Ippadi Naan

Funny ..IKEA Advertisements...

IKEA are famous chain of stores that gives home products at a cheap rate.

Recently , Balaji's bbthots had a post on IKEA's cheap prices. I am always an admirer of IKEA's advertisements in banners and TV.

Here are two such adverts here.

IKEA usually allots a particular day for Men, targeting the young people to buy products from their store. Here are two adverts making a propoganda with the Catch Phrase ..." A Day only for Guys"...

Batchelors do any activity with anything. In the following Advert, IKEA depicts a guy using Potato Peeler to do his shave.

Machee... Vallavanukkuuu.. Pullum Ayudham daa.... !!!!!!!!!!.....



And in the following image, a guy uses the Shower Curtain Roll to Change the Channel in a Television.

Guys can do anything for they want.. to achieve

The Power of Auto Suggestion ...


Autosuggestion is what some thing new i hear for the first time from book Think and Grow Rich. It is an art of influencing your physical or mental state by thoughts and ideas which
come from yourself rather than from other people.

So all the major discoveries and inventions must have come from the Autosuggestion of
the discoverer or the inventor.



I'm sharing a verse that i found it interesting in the book. All credits again to Napoleon Hill, the author of this book.

" If you think you are beaten , you are

If you think you dare not, you dont

If you like to win, but you think you can't

It is almost certain you won't

"If you think you'll lose, you are lost

For out in the world we find

Sucess begins with a fellows will

Its all in the state of mind

"If you think you are outclassed, you are

You've got to think high to rise,

You've got to be sure of yourself before

You can ever win a prize

" Life's battles don't always go

To the Stronger or faster man

But soon or late the man who wins

Is the man "WHO THINKS HE CAN!"

Diwali Celebrations at the Clay Oven, Wembley

Last week end... Me and my colleagues had been to the Clay Oven Banquetting Hall in
Wembley, London.

The table where we gathered together was a mix of people of different languages and
different places of origin back in India.

It was a memorable one...and i really enjoyed it.. After the dinner... we had a dance
party and was surprised to find the dance floor fully filled with people just dancing to
the "balle..balle"'s and "Aaajaa...soniye's " .



The Diya's were lit in the centre of the table among rose petals...

A Loooonnnnnngg Wait ...

It has been a long wait for me to receive a parcel from India. It has been posted on the
20th of October through Air Mail in India and the parcel is still in its Journey.

Again i am not sure..whether the parcel has broken its Journey in the mid way !!!!!...haa..haa..

When i called the local post office call centre here..they boldly said that.. the Parcel has still not
reached this country...

If i had asked her again to check ...She would have literaly beaten me over the phone...such
was the confidence in her that the parcel has not yet come to the UK.

Any way...let me hope.. it would arrive safely though it may take days together....

Has any one come across such a situation...???

Happy Diwali

Wish every one a Happy and Prosperous Diwali.

Got some thoughts on this day.

Ravana is depicted in art with up to ten heads, signifying that he had knowledge spanning all the ten directions. He was an accomplished scholar and a Veena player.

Ravana was a great devotee of Shiva and is supposed to have composed the Shiva Tandava Stotra.

Ravana gained enormous powers when he prayed to Brahma, who granted him a boon: Ravana wished that his life be protected from Devas (divinities), Asuras (enemies of the Devas), Rakshasas (demons), Gandharvas (celestial musicians), Yakshas (demigods), and other celestial and magical beings.

In his arrogance, Ravana forgot to ask for protection from man.After gaining such immense powers Ravana became corrupt and selfish; it was soon deemed necessary to rid the world of his tyranny.The poem's characterisation of Ravana serves as an example of the dangers of lust and ego.

All i could infer is , what ever may be the education you have, What ever may be the Origin
of your birth, How ever powerful you may be in terms money, How ever you may be true to
your god....Corrupted mind and Selfishness always leads to evil..

Mr. Murthy...Do you really deserve this Criticism???

The Ongoing Cold War between former prime minister H D Deve Gowda and the Infosys Chairman N R Murthy has reached some crucial stage.

It all started with Mr. Deve Gowda criticising Mr.Murthy that he has notcontributed any thing to development of the Bangalore airport. That madeMr. Moorthy to resign as the Chairman of the Bangalore International AirportLimited (BIAL), under the grounds that his roles have not been clearly defined as the Chairman.

Now, Mr.Gowda has struck again with his interview to rediff.com.

Here is a small excerpt of the interview :

Interviewer :

In today's situation, is there anything wrong in Infosys wanting to build a big campus?

Mr. Gowda:

Why do you only harp on Infosys, mister? Why do you want? Why do you want? [Shouts, looks visibly angry]. Is he [N R Narayana Murthy] the only person who built the name and fame of the IT sector? Is Wipro not doing anything?

If you are a true journalist you must have a fair outlook. Infosys, Infosys, Infosys. If Infosys goes, all the world goes?

and the interview....continues in a similar fashion...

Mr.Murthy do you really deserve all these Criticisms ???? !!!! ..
