WHAT DO YOU SAY ??

Let me get a serious post done here!!

During one of my frequent calls home, my brother sounded upset as none of his close friends are at chennai anymore!!.But why he has to be upset?? My brother is a Doctor..Still studying.....doing PG now,whereas his friends that did engineering are sort of settling in life with a decent job/salary in IT field at just about 24 years of age. Recently i read this column at Rediff.
Though he got no regrets choosing medicine as his career ,he still feels that he missed the boat for not opting for BioTech at Anna Univ.I argue with him that its not just about settling early in one's own life but to make a difference in someone's life. However,he has his concerns..
Any comments/suggestions ??

TV shows.........

As you may know, there are Indian versions of American TV shows....
To name a few ::
WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE = KAUN BANEGA CROREPATI
AMERICAN IDOL = INDIAN IDOL

I always wondered as what would happen if shows like JERRY SPRINGER and MAURY are Indianized??

ANY COMMENTS??

NewYork to London !!

Last Sunday..I saw a tamil movie "LONDON"..Supposedly a comedy movie..can aptly be called 'a logically illogical movie". I had no options but to see thru the whole stuff to know as what the director SUNDAR C tries to say..
The story is about a guy that lost his visa/passport on arrival at London,yet he manages to stay there!!
In reality,one needs to get a transit visa if enroute is via UK.
A dialogue goes like this :"Anjali is from Oxford univ in America". I havenot heard of one here!!
Antics by Vadivelu was just unbearable!!.He was barely seen in most of the scenes as lighting seems to be insufficient.
Moreover, most part of the movie seems to be shot in a London-Like set and One wonders why the title LONDON ??

Thats what i call ADENGAPPA !!

A Blog ??Whatz that??

Last weekend i was on my "TRING TRING" publicity mission.I was calling my cousins and friends here to let them know about my new "Venture".
First call to me Cousin : Anna, I am a Blogger now...He probably heard me as saying "block" or so..and he told me to download google "pop-up blocker".(He is my computer's doctor).I told him about my Tring Tring...Huh..he said he has not heard about such a terminology.(Coz i think he works for TCS..jus' kidding).

Next to my akka: "Neeyuma..vetti pasanga velai"..Ok Ok..appuram I talked about my India trip..Bye akka..

Next to my friend :She said..Yeah,i read in news that someone got fired blogging during office time.i dunno much about it..unakkum Ok Ok..bbye.

I'm sure none of my friends would know about blogging as they are not in computer field..

Alright..After a "deep thinking" i was wondering about the usefulness of blogging..
You write about everything and anything ,about you, your family,location,etc etc..but what about the Privacy??
THE WHOLE WORLD READS IT..EVERYONE THAT HITS UPON YOURS !!

Any answers ?? Thanks...

Basic Etiquette??

This happened today morning on my way to work! I stopped at starbucks to grab a cup of latte..as commonly seen in NY,it was run by Bangladeshis..It so happened that one guy over the service counter spilled a cup of coffee on the handbag of a caucasian female cutomer.She asked for clean up towels but the guy didn't bother a bit to say SORRY and went on to attend other customers..Uhh..i heard a load of Ghaalis from her..and finally she said.."if u dont know english..get out of my country".
Heights of Frustration...

Yeah..i agree with her but should not these guys know basic etiquette??

I always thought as how it felt when someone spoke in a language that you dont understand? Enga office-la 2 northie guys yelling at each other "Abbey gandu..lunch jaana kya?" I was there and could see others blinking eyes with confusion as why these guys yell all the time??

Doesnot it all run to Basic Etiquette?

You might be a Desi if.....

I got this link forwarded by my friend. Incidentally,i remembered reading Capri's experience as a new comer to US.

Is Ignorance is Bliss??

தமிழா?? தமிழா !!

This happened a few days ago.
I called to wish my cousin that is appearing for his HSC exams.He told that he was preparing for his language paper.I told him to focus more on Tamil grammar and to ask his mom if he got any doubts in it.He laughed at me and said that he has opted for French.I was taken aback by his response. The irony is that my Chitti is a Tamil professor with Doctorate in Ancient Tamil epigraphs(கல்வெட்டு)of Tanjovore!!
My chitti stopped short of lashing out those politicans for raking up ruthless issues to save Tamil language for political gains.She told about those dilapidating epigraphs which needs immediate attention and about closures of Tamil chairs in Europe.(I had mentioned about this in one of my earlier blogs..)!

Let me end now by signing AU REVOIR!!Protégez le Tamil !!

MADE IN INDIA

Over the last weekend, I and my friend were on "India shopping" spree..
We stopped at GAP store and my friend picked few shirts ranging about 70 USD. But,when i looked at the collar label, it said "MADE IN INDIA" !! I asked my friend if it makes sense by taking the "Indian made" back to India and Would anyone belive if you say you got the shirt in US??
He argued "its GAP, its GAP ". And he finally went ahead and picked a couple of them!!

Oh boy, Come on!!I just dont understand the craze behind picking a brand label.WHEN YOU CAN GET THE SAME STUFF IN INDIA, WHY CARRY FROM HERE ??..

Btw, I have rarely seen something that said "MADE IN AMERICA"

Related to this incident, can WALMART be aptly called CHINA MART ?? As a matter of fact, almost 90% of American consumer needs are taken care of China..

A TISSUELESS EXPERIENCE !!

One of my friends is planning a trip to India this summer.He is basically from a small town near Madurai. Having resided in USA for almost couple of years,he says he is uncomfortable about using hands again after his morning routines...So he asked me to look for supermarkets/malls where he can purchase toilet tissues..
As i googled, i came across this WONDERFUL DEMONSTRATION of how to use hands...

I just called and told him " While in India, Do as the Indians Do "



Any takes on my suggestions??
