The way i always...

This is self-pity one, this post.
The way i'm and the way i always was.

Today i called up my mother and we were talking about the boat tragedy in Kerala, killing 15 small children. She was literally crying.

I know every mother who saw this would be crying.

The two children you see are twins and the man in the picture is their father. He has lost everything, everything in life.

Bloody Achuthanandan,.. .What are you and your team doing?? No safety measures, nothing! i feel shameful ...

I have lost everything for sometime,thinking about the twins Amritha and Aswathy. As i always ...

No sleep tonight

The first thing that i enjoyed in UK was the cab and the driver who came to pick me up from the Heathrow airport. A English-well built man came and picked mine and Pavi's(the girl who came with me) one bag each and walked towards the car.

Think of 70 or 80 years back or beyond ,how my countrymen used to carry the bags of these people not because they came for any business discussions but because they conquered my country with the gun.

Now he picks my bag, opens the door for me. Great!.Because the world has changed and the people...

11.11 pm

I'm watching SWADES in Star Gold .Pani lo pani ,pacheesh paise ka ek glass...the boy says.Ek glass leeno na,sir.He asks!Tears are falling down from SRK's eyes.I think i'm crying more than him....

"Rage, rage against the dying of the light"

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless me now with your fierce tears,
I pray. Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Dylan Thomas

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
I think this is the most beautiful line ever written in English.I love you Dylan.I love you!!

UK jokes starts!!

My first party in UK came on Friday, the day after Snow. I saw the BBC on Tuesday when it predicted that the Snow is coming on Thursday and I was thrilled to see it as I never did in my life.

The children here were more thrilled than me when it came. And “when it came, it came” and the whole world around me was painted white and white packets of snow was falling from the sky like small pieces of white paper.

So cool so cool Snow Snow...

I forgot where I started.My first party was organized by immediate boss Catherine Hynes.She had organized for an ice skating in a nearby place. I went and got afraid and didn’t participate because I feared of breaking my bones.I was stunned to see the small little ones playing and dancing in the indoor ground where ice is made artificially.

In the evening the party round one was organized in an Australian Bar in a place nearby called Reading.People turned up by 8 and started enjoying

Round two was organized in a Club called Revolution and there were more people there as time passed by people kept on joining and started to behave the way it should be in English parties. Their way of drinking and dancing is something to watch.It is fun to see people getting wild and making weird noises.

Am lost

You people might be thinking what happened to me in the last one month with no updates in the Blog.

My life has changed a lot in the last one month. It was all of a sudden that my manager told me to go to London

And when I reached Britain I saw the sky. It is as beautiful as Bharath but the earth has changed a lot.

My eyes which is used to the sights of the mighty Monsoons has now opened itself to the whitish snow; a shift that has shattered my mind, my body and my resolve.
