Evergreen Illaiyaraja?

Posted by AtPeace on January 28, 2006

I dunno why people say Illaiyaraja’s music can never get boring, how many ever times you listen to it… Was listening to the song ‘Idhu oru pon maalai pozhudhu’ the other day and it just struck me that I had heard the song so many times that I was really bored of it. Am not supporting ARR or anyone else here. Just that IR’s songs don’t seem to be as enduring or perpetual to me. *shrug*

Nenju porukudhillaye indha nilai ketta manidharai ninaithu vittal….

I just read this. And am disheartened.

At times like this, I concur with the Chinese remedy for rape.

Any man who dares to abuse a woman should be hung upside down, repeatedly whipped and beaten with wooden clubs, burned with cigarette butts, branded with soldering irons, and have his genitals ripped off.

(Thanks to Ramya for the info.)

Women and…. the rest (part – 2)

Posted by AtPeace on September 25, 2005

Yes, I picked this up from Siva‘s blog. But this is by no means a retort to Siva, it’s intended for all readers of the male gender. (So, Siva, if you find anything offensive, it’s not aimed at you, but at all men.) And here’s his original post on women.

Women and….. driving (part – 1)

Posted by AtPeace on September 24, 2005

This post is in response to Siva’s post on women’s driving, amongst a hundred other complaints he has about women. He’s by no means the only one who’s got complaints against women drivers. Here‘s what dear old Praveen has to say on the subject. And I’m sure several others would have ranted away similarly.In response to posts of this kind, I have only this to say –

* I think it’s high time people begin looking at bad women drivers (and bad male drivers) as just bad drivers and not as women/men. Ditch the gender bias, people.

(Mmmm…. Maybe you should try to reflect on what you’ve just read for a few seconds before you continue reading.)

* Anyone who still has complaints about women drivers should see chennai’s auto drivers (most of whom are male, need I add?). Period.

I rest my case.

‘Avan seriyana poruki… seruppala adikanum‘ – One girl in my van said to another, this morning, the ‘avan’ in question being director S.J.Surya!!!!

I vehemently agree.

‘Algebra ivan dhegam… Amoeba-vai uru maarum..’

‘You wanna salsa… take me to uppa’?????

But honestly, what the dash is all this? (Ok, I can actually somehow accept amoeba… but what’s with algebra and his dhegam…????)
