Latest, but badly Lazy !!

Tilotamma writes on the renown mylapore bookwala Azhwar in a Madras Musings column, Finding Alwar. Enjoyed the read. BTW, Tilo writes irregularly for Hindu, truly loves Chennai & Books.

Meet the Blogger Fans !! says Sujatha in The Woods[As we nick the Woodlands Drive Inn], much to my envy. I missed it. For those who missed it, like me, there is podcast of an interview with Sujatha. And to hell with Desikan who arranged it when I wasn’t there !!

Chenthil and Sudish Kamath have given raving reviews for Evam’s Indrajit. If you are in Chennai, don’t miss it.

I am not sure if Nilu was inspired by Swades. But he did a Swades. Yeah !! he went back. And he says its to find ‘himself’ [Nilu!! I know, I’m rubbing the wrong side]. But the whole point is, the dude who was rather on-the-face with his comments has softened. I’ve been reading his Chennai Adventures and the way he puts it is rather soft and not the usual Nilu way. Is that what Chennai does to someone radical in thoughts ? I don’t think so. Nilu comeback with your usual gibberish.

Ammani has been making people write good fiction. Her quick tales has inspired and been inculcated by many bloggers. Chandru being the last one as of now. Ammani was also mentioned by Sujatha in his Vikatan column, Katrathum Petrathum. Great going !! I would love it if she called it fast fiction instead of quick tales.

Divya was probably the only one who flew over to Chennai for a blogger meet and went back to meet with Singapore bloggers. That was partly true. Though she flew over to India, it was for her friend’s wedding and also her yearly quota. Read her account of Chennai/Singapore Blogger meet, The Legend of Blog Meets. I’ve asked her for 6 Vithyaasangal between Chennai/Singapore bloggers. Let see what she’s upto.

  1. Yeah thats a Nilu way to comment. But then, I wanted to send you an email about what I noticed. Posted it there to see if I was the only one experiencing the ‘missing Nilu’ syndrome !!


  2. Latest definitely Lazy … Add these too to your latest (might not be related to blogging events though) –

    1. Two Coimbatore girls have had the rare honour of having two minor planets named after them by MIT for their contribution to a research work done on Eucalyptus trees.

    2. And about 350 kms from Calcutta, a ceremony was held to invoke the pleasure of the raingods by marrying two frogs off..

    Both these captured prime space on Indian Express today. The frog episode was ofcourse on the top….


  3. Adapaavingalaa…appdinaa what happened to the traditional way of having a virgin run naked around the village on a ammavaasai night to please the rain gods? Frogs kalyanamaa? Che…kali muthiduchu.


  4. I was at the bank when i read about the “Marriage of the Toads in West Bengal” in Business Line. They were caught from 2 different ponds, bathed, clothed, carried in a palequin and married. They have picture of a poojari applying bindhi on the female toad. Right next to the bride is the male toad.
    It still hasnt rained. From the looks of it, their marriage could be on the rocks.

  5. Hemanth, lol !! Thanks.

    Chenthil, Thanks and you did it exactly the way I wanted to. The tamil/English split.

    Manoj, Nice details !!

    Ammani, I am sure you have to stick with quick tales. That was just a suggestion.


  6. Lazy, u have just tickled a sleeping dragon 😉 Nilu, avuthu vidu da! Show them what they have been missing…lol…
    Maverick: Naked gal running through the village reminds me of this old movie…. wait.. Vaikasi Porandhachu.. if I am right!


  7. No Anti, the movie is Radhika’s debut “Kilakke Pogum Rail”. Vaikasi Porandachu, in climax the hero and heroine will hide in the caves and when the villagers come chasing, they will throw away the clothes and say now come and kill us.


  8. Well, I think Ammani’s spread the disease, and I am the latest victim. I like the amazing simplicity, and the potential to pull a O. Henry out of this quick tale thing. I think I will write more.


  9. Tilo, I ain’t that big. Just found really interesting stuff around. It’s only after posting I saw they were all related to Chennai. Call it Chennai Mela. But hey I have no idea.


  10. There was an article and a picture of Alwar about a year ago in the London Metro. During my numerous moves I’ve unfortunatly managed to misplace it
