Thai poosam

Glad to know that Thai poosam is celebrated as holiday in malaysia as more than 5000 devotees pay tribute to Lord Muruga @ BatuCaves Temple.

Thaipusam (Tamil: தைப்பூசம்) (or Thai Poosam Kavady) is a Hindu festival celebrated mostly by the Tamil community on the full moon in the Tamil month of Thai (Jan/Feb). Pusam refers to a star that is at its highest point during the festival. The festival commemorates both the birthday of Lord Murugan (also Subramaniam), the youngest son of Shiva and Parvati, and the occasion when Parvati gave Murugan a vel (lance) so he could vanquish the evil demon Soorapadman.

When i grew up in madurai, my mum used to take me and my brother to Thiruparankundram for lord subramanya's blessings. last july, when i was in india, i didn't miss the opportunity to visit this wonderful place that too on a weekday(monday, i guess ?) for a peaceful "Paal abhisaegam".

No country for old Men

I happened to see this movie last weekend and it is based on McCarthy Novel of Same name. These kind of movies are based on fate and chances which requires a stimulating screenplays, which this movie has. Kudos to spanish actor who comes as villan and occupies the whole movie with his pitiless killings with Captive bold pistol.
No wonder this movie has been nominated for 8 Academy awards.
Must watch. my rating is 8/10.

Jodhaa Akbar's Music - Should listen again and again, i guess.

To Mr.A.R.Rahman,
Sir, Please stop signing periodic films. I listened to your Jodha Akbar's Album and i was not expecting a music as par with Swades or Lagaan, as i knew Jodha is a pre-historic novel,etc. Nevertheless, the music is not very impressive apart from that "Shenshah" song. Anyway, am gonna listen to the songs again and again, as i see a very impressive music group on the CD.

btw, Congrats for the NDTV Award.

Wish you many more successes on your future project.

already in recession ??

U.S. stocks sold off for a third day straight, propelling the Dow to near 10month lows, as Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke spoke about the country’s economic trouble and a regional measure of economic activity contracted. “When reminded about how bad things are, the market remembers it should go down,” said Art Hogan, chief market strategist at Jefferies & Co. “And, it is going to take more than just monetary policy to clean up the mess we’ve made with this economy,” Hogan said.

Taare Zameer Par - Might change ur life.

"A child (Darsheel safary) suffering from dyslexia is deeply analyzed, loved, taught and shown right direction by a teacher (Aamir)" - This is a one line review of TZP which is a must watch for everyone not because it has all the elements to win awards but its a delight for sensitive viewers.

Kudos to Aamir Khan and Amol Gupte(script writer) who was challenged by stupid movie maker bhansali (when aamir had negative opinion on BLACK movie) gang asking him to make a movie which is not manipulative. Here is the movie of flawless true story from a sincere director. bhai log of bollywood and feroz nadiawala-priyadharsan gang ( sick of their comedies now) ...pls try to watch these kind of movies and see if u guys can present something better for coming generation.

Nice photography(Mr.Setu..who is this guy?), Good songs by Shankar, Eshan, Loy, Very catchy lyrics by RDB fame Mr.Prasoon Joshi.
