Last Sunday, 10 members of our family were lost at Brookefields.
Glitzy and glassy shopping mall, Fashionistas flock of Girls and their teenage companions, Spi cinemas,
5D shows, extravagant Food courts have swallowed us.  But the “Bowling House” hooked me,
eventually I went into the Bowling alley, purchased a ticket for Rs.200/-(20 shots) assuming to engage all my family members to play.  We witnessed two families already occupying the cluster of seats fitted with monitor to watch score and the proceedings.

We occupied the extreme right alley, and I am the first 'Kegler' have taken an 'apple' out of 20 nos,
swing my arm, and ran towards the foul line, released it, but it was a clear 'Balsa'. The next two apples went through the 'Gutter' and no trace of victory.  The next release was a strike and a Spare.  I was convinced about my athleticism left in me; I invited my family members to proceed.  As usual the controller of the Alley rushed towards me and requested me to continue, since the rule there is only one person is allowed to play a total of 20 apples. My family members cheered me to continue, hence I started to play and learnt "Bridges, Blow a rack, Flatter, Flat ball, Follow through and Lift".

One who plays Bowling, will have an alter mind to install Bowling allies instead of Treadmills. Bowling is an energy drainer in comparison with Tennis and Basket Ball.

But it was difficult to steer back home, since the arms and hip was aching and was stiff, I had to search for a pain killer and muscle relaxant.
1. Kegler: Synonym for bowler.
2. Apple: Bowling ball
3. Balsa: A slight, powerless hit on the headpin. (Thin hit)
4. Gutter: Depression approximately 9.5 inches wide to the right and the left of the lane to guide the ball    to the pit to leave the playing surface. (Channel)
5. A strike (All ten down in the first ball), a spare (All ten down by the second ball).
6. Bridge: Distance separating finger holes (As opposed to span, the distance between the thumb hole and middle finger hole).
7. Blow a rack: A solid strike hit.
8. Flat ball: Ineffective ball; few revolutions, little action.
9. Floater: A ball that goes where the lane lets it; the ball is released badly with no particular lift or turn.
10. Follow-through: Motion after release. Should be toward the pin you're aiming at and may include a second "shadow" swing without the ball
11. Lift: The upward motion of the ball imparted by the fingers at the point of release.

We-men’s Day.

The Last line of this would promptly reflect our greeting on Women’s Day.

Recently I paid a visit to my son’s college and wondered about the dress habit of Men’s attire. Men Wear their pant on their groin line, not even, below the hip, for the so called Low Hip. On my re tour my son asked me, why Daddy, you are in silence suddenly.  I told, Oh sonny, I worried perhaps if you ask, “Allow me to wear this Lo-hip for a Week”.

Women, in the college, are perfect in the aspect of dressing. Thank god, I have not seen any figure skating robes, Leggings or sleeveless tops.  I understand the delicacy of parents, allowing their wards, on their own taste.  But parents know the consequences and are prepared to face it. For Instance I would quote the feelings of Praksh Padukone, a conservative person, to my knowledge, he can only be happy about the charisma of his daughter.

I would appeal to both men and women, to dress and behave carefully in public places. Disposing “I am What I am attitude” gives you a classic environment, Happy women’s day.

What a Win!

Finally the Wimbledon trophy arrived into the big hands of Andy Murray and his coach Ivan Lendl after the decisive Battle. It was fantastic night, to watch that one sided Match.  The other aspect which surprised me was that Andy Murray sat on his chair with a sigh of relief, the match controller approaching him, Murray asked permission to share his Victory Josh with his mates who were all sitting in the Player Box.  The controller permits Murray. Often other winners, bulldozing the way in to their Box, taking advantage of their Victory and the status of Celebrity.  But Murray climbed into his Box (in fact there’s no direct way to reach the Player’s Box from the Center Court) with a rare courtesy.

He embraced everybody leaving his mother since he didn't know the faces during his emotional burst. His mother also patiently waited and beckoned the guard to call his son and embraced him.  What a mother she is! What a courtesy they are celebrating! Wonderful mother & son. Seldom have we witnessed this type of an incident.

Not to forget Djockovic, who is a legend who kept his emotions tight, celebrating Murray’s rich Legacy, himself a True Champion indeed!

I pen this with the memory of my Guru, friend Raghuram and my coach Mr. Nandakumar
Letter to Mr. Anand Raghav, Stage Personality and Writer


My Sincere appreciations to a Stage Wizard!

Just read your “Porutham” a short story, in Diwali Malar, a purposeful purchase, this year.

Seeing your notification on FB about this short story, I have landed on your page, not have given any significance to Nanjil Nadan, S. Ramakrishnan, Dhanshika, Mrithula and Santra Prajin photograph on Kavithayini.Thamarai.
Initially I thought that I have surfaced into corporate world again, but your transition from a five star Hotel meeting to the beloved Kalyani Atthai and her activities, is a beauty. Kalyani athai’s first and second theory, the conversation with Dhuraisamy and Srinivasan while Krishnan mama looks on, her selfless work to merge the couple, finally her frustration towards the attitude of the present generation have been written by you very thoughtfully and  will reach every proposed couple.

I understand your concern for the aftermath of divorce and constrain to favor the ideology of Living Together.

You have written this story without any support of vernacular slang or sequel of incidents.  You have fabricated with an illustrative yolk of concept, gracefully.

Every publication of a writer, is to give a child-birth again, in spite you have proved that you are fertile.

I have been updated in your FB status, about your drug allergy, leading to conviction over Patti Vaidhyam and mentioned about deterioration of your health.

In fact it is all a difficult task, for a writing brain, to cross all this inevitable events of Real life.

I wish you become a Bookmark in writing.

Sathya Meva Jaeyathe, Hey Ram, the two words of a simple man, I am not going to write any of his freedom struggles, since we are not capable of following his foot paths, and ready to bash any politician, to lift them as our future Leader or prime minister.  Certainly, neither we do not know the responsibility of a prime minister, nor he does.  We are always ready to accept even a new actor Vijay Sethupathy as our Leader, who knows, he will become, and to that extent we Indians have an attitude of Devotion to the super stardom.

For long time we have been talking about a prime minister of India, biggest Democratic country, gives his speech of Independence Day, in from a glass booth. Now we are fixing an auspicious day even to a chief minister to confront a prime minister.  We do not have any right to talk about Freedom fights.

During my second standard in school, my Social studies teacher Mrs. Saraswathy, who lived near a lane, very adjacent to my school, tried to instill about Bapuji who was searching a pencil, was given to him by a close mate, I had a difficulty to understand this contest, suddenly from the course of adopting alphabets in my first standard. Later Putli Bhai, Porbunder and Bapu’s Birth year were a problem in every examination. When I was in 8th standard, I had been to Rajkot, Porbunder, Sabarmati, with my friend Elango while his Uncle was driving a “Taurus truck” en-route to Delhi & Gujarat, to cater Neycer products. By my 9th standard I appeared for a District Level Essay writing event about Mahathmaji, that time I have been reading his “My experiments with the Truth” and understood the essence of his Ahimsa principle, Truthfulness, Being a vegetarian, value of friendship, the desire over feminine body even after hearing Kasturibha’s father passing away, One India, the proposal to dissolve Congress party and the death in the hands of his own countrymen.

Truly I am not able to follow all his qualities sincerely. In the 10 standard Mr. Sivalingam, my Tamil Teacher, narrated a prose on “Gandhiji”, still in my vivid memory.

By 1982, my maternal Uncle-Balu mama, availed leave to his SBCO job at Indian Post and Telegraphs, has already reserved  Tickets for Gandhi- the movie, directed by Richard Attenborough, the first movie for Ramba & Urvasi cinema theater, I think, mama, myself, Mano,Thambudu and Banu have all enjoyed the Movie. Balu mama only took us to Veerapandiya Kattabomman; I do not know why he has done all this things for us. Now he is down with Parkinson syndrome and walks with a stick like Gandhi. I would appreciate the ‘will’ of Richard Attenborough, casting Ben Kingsly, to act as Gandhi leaving Indian actors, but Kasturiba is our own Rohini Hattangadi, only Indian women can portray the real femininity, to establish the role of real Mahatma had been proved.

Later the Liquor barren Mr. Vijay Mallya has brought the belongings of Bapuji from an Auction, Thank God; at least he was awake, made us proud Indians. Legendary actor Kamal Hasan spent his money and energy to remind Gandhi again on his own language with the movie-‘Hey Ram’, further he had an opportunity to sing a song “Roopa notilathan vaaluraru Gandhi”. I used to go to my office which was situated at Gandhi Mandapam Road, Kotturpuram, is his presence being an Enigma?

On this day, I Salute the Father of our Nation and the real mahatma- Maa kasturibha.

My face book friend Mr. Charles J Forman’s article on women’s transformation to the domestic work at Germany and my son’s teacher Prof.Shanthi Shankaralingam’s questionnaire to me, on AN IMPACT ON WOMEN EMPLOYEE IN THE MIND OF MEN in India, both are contrary on its core message, eventually induced me to share some thoughts.
In fact in India Women have long years of Log book for working in various fields viz., Agriculture, Cooking, Teaching, War-espionage, Weaving, Handicrafts, Masonry, Rehabilitation centers, Judicial, medicine, Micro-biology labs and religious missionary .

Thus Women prevail silently in all terrains of Human work; we can say that they are predominant. Women themselves do not promote their efficiency, determination, dedication and desire to take up the responsibilities on par se to the Men including Leadership qualities, on their respective fields but mankind is undoubtedly benefited.

Particularly both men and women shared their work with an ethic, though when our literacy rate was low, but only in the contemporary years we see sexual abuse and harassment. When women were deployed into some specialized domains, particularly Banking and Information Technology, in the night hours, sexual abuse & Sexual harassment took place only amidst their cherished circle.

We do not hear such stories from Tirupur and Sivakasi, where Women work force is huge, but the incidents are more only at corporate sector, Banks and IT parks and it leads to bigger arguments.
Aiswal, the capital of Mizoram, this place is mainly notable for its huge population of women laborers and the crime rate against them. Today, our capital the so called Delhi, safety for women is under the scanner of the family

The society should be well informed with the statistical ratio of women employment and the government should increase the space for women at all places, like the country does for the colonies.
