Happy Birthday Amma


Wishing you a Wonderful Birthday .....

I am not sure if you would read this today.. But would like to thank you for all the support you provided all through my life.

A special thanks for inculcating the habits of reading books and writing poetry and articles. Though I have disappointed you in not continuing with my writings.. But I hope someday I will be able to make up for that and this blog is a start... :)

We have had innumerable arguments and differences but you still remain the person whom I can look upto for support always..

Thanks for everything... :)

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with wornout tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on";

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!

-Rudyard Kipling

Nice poem by Kipling.... Very inspiring... read this couple of weeks ago.. and was not sure of the name and it was Karthik who told me the name of this poem and also he mentioned that it was one of his Fav. poems in school..

In India, Kipling is more famous for his another creation "Jungle Book".. This was adapted as a cartoon series and used to come in Doordarshan on Sunday Mornings...

I still remember the song "Jungle jungle phool khila hai.. pata chala hai..... " and the main protagonist Mogli...

These small little things bring out very fond memories of my childhood... And I feel that some sense of me is being lost in this daily of grind of corporate jungle.

But.. what to do... Life's like that !! Show must go on.. as aptly said in the famous song in the movie "Hum Dono" .. Main Zindagi ke saath nibhaata chala gaya....

ಓ ನನ್ನ ಚೇತನಾ....

ಓ ನನ್ನ ಚೇತನ,
ಆಗು ನೀ ಅನಿಕೇತನ!
ರೂಪರೂಪಗಳನು ದಾಟಿ,
ನಾಮಕೋಟಿಗಳನು ಮೀಟಿ,
ಎದೆಯ ಬಿರಿಯೆ ಭಾವದೀಟಿ,
ಓ ನನ್ನ ಚೇತನ,ಆಗು ನೀ ಅನಿಕೇತನ!

ನೂರು ಮತದ ಹೊಟ್ಟ ತೂರಿ,
ಎಲ್ಲ ತತ್ತ್ವದೆಲ್ಲೆ ಮೀರಿ,
ನಿರ್ದಿಗನ೦ತವಾಗಿ ಏರಿ,
ಓ ನನ್ನ ಚೇತನ,ಆಗು ನೀ ಅನಿಕೇತನ!

ಎಲ್ಲಿಯೂ ನಿಲ್ಲದಿರು;
ಮನೆಯನೆ೦ದೂ ಕಟ್ಟದಿರು;
ಕೊನೆಯನೆ೦ದೂ ಮುಟ್ಟದಿರು;
ಓ ಅನ೦ತವಾಗಿರು!
ಓ ನನ್ನ ಚೇತನ,ಆಗು ನೀ ಅನಿಕೇತನ!

ಅನ೦ತ ತಾನ್ ಅನ೦ತವಾಗಿ
ಆಗುತಿಹನೆ ನಿತ್ಯಯೋಗಿ;
ಅನ೦ತ ನೀ ಅನ೦ತವಾಗು;
ಆಗು, ಆಗು, ಆಗು, ಆಗು,
ಓ ನನ್ನ ಚೇತನ,ಆಗು ನೀ ಅನಿಕೇತನ!

ಕುವೆಂಪುರವರ ಅವರ ವಿಶ್ವ ಮಾನವ ಸಂದೇಶ ಸಾರುವ ಈ ಗೀತೆ ನನ್ನ ಮೆಚ್ಚಿನ ಕವನಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಒಂದು.. ಹಿಂದೆ ನಮ್ಮ ಶಾಲೆಯ ಪಠ್ಯ ಪುಸ್ತಕದಲ್ಲಿ ಈ ಪದ್ಯ ಇತ್ತಾದರೂ ಅದರ ಸಮಗ್ರ ಸಂದೇಶ ನನಗೆ ಆಗ ತಿಳಿದಿರಲಿಲ್ಲ... ಈಗ ಮತ್ತೊಮ್ಮೆ ಅದನ್ನು ಓದಿದಾಗ ಒಂದು ಕುವೆಂಪು ಅವರ ಹಿರಿಮೆ ತಿಳಿಯುತ್ತದೆ... ಅವರು ಕನ್ನಡದ ಹೆಮ್ಮೆ:-)

ಗೆಳೆತನದ ಬಗ್ಗೆ

ಪ್ರೀತಿ ಎನ್ನುವುದು ಫ್ಯಾಷನ್
ಗೆಳೆತನ ಎಂಬುದು ಓಷನ್
ಫ್ಯಾಷನ್ ಬದಲಾಗುತ್ತದೆ
ಓಷನ್ ಎಂದೂ ಬದಲಾಗದು

----ಅಂತರ್ಜಾಲದಲ್ಲಿ ಸಿಕ್ಕಿದ್ದು... :-)

On a Sunday Evening

Hmm.. its Sunday Evening and I am all alone at my home... thinking .. finishing off some office work as well.... :(

Its been raining here .. and hmm well I like rains... love the smell of earth when it rains... :) Its awesome... :)

I love rains ever since my childhood.. rains bring joy and invigorates my soul... I lived my better part of childhood in Malnad regions of Karnataka. In these regions it rains as if the sky has opened its floodgates. Incessent rains in these region helped me develop a special love for rains.

I really miss those rainy days here in this Silicon City though the rains in Bangalore are comparatively more than many of the metros.
