Her last moments…

Posted by AtPeace on October 28, 2005

*A true story*

I watched in agony as the light flickered out of her eyes. ‘Can’t you please do something?’, she seemed to ask me pleadingly… Oh, how I wished I could!! But the fact was glaring at me in the face. She had but a few moments to live and there was absolutely nothing I could do about it. And I chose to do the only thing that was left – stay with her for her final moments.

An official mail was sent out to my team yesterday indicating the upcoming change in my team structure, describing our new roles. C told me about my new roles last week and one of them is something I still can’t believe I have got. Although it is an indication of the confidence my PM has in me (and I’m truly gratified), I am a little apprehensive too. Anyways, once I got the mail and read through the details, I forwarded it to my friends gang, as is my practice with any good news. Everyone replied with congratulatory mails, but I feel this reply from Vijai‘s the best. I read it first thing this morning and it has made my day. Check out the mail, esp the parts in italics. 🙂


—–Original Message—–
From: Vijai
To: Naicker, Madhubala
Subject: Re: FW: TPF team Structure

Anbulla thangai ku,

Un anbu annan ezhudhikolvadhu. Un madalai padithen.

Aagave, adhanai manadhil vaithukkondu, indha vayadhil thondrum theeya sindhanaigalil manadhai alaipaaya vidaamal kudukappatta paniyai sevvena seidhu mudithu, unaku keezh panipuribavarukum, endha samudhayathirkum nalla oru eduthukkaataaga ne iruka vendum endru kori, naanum un annaiyum unnai nalla vidha maaga valarka eduthukkonda muyarchigal veen pogadhu endra nambikaiyudanum endha madalai mudithukkolgiren.

Varta ….


Dei gunda*, I honestly think you rock! 🙂 By the way, idhuku unakku special treat iruku! 😉

PS: “indha vayadhil thondrum theeya sindhanaigalil manadhai alaipaaya vidaamal ” – apdina enna na…?

* – No, Scudie, I didn’t mean you. I meant Vijai.

Meendum oru kadhal kadhai…

Posted by AtPeace on September 28, 2005

As my blogreaders must be knowing, me’s a major Anil Kumble fan. After the heartbreak I got during my 2nd year of college, when the dhrogi got married, I have been roaming around the planet like… a lost, beaten, broken, shattered soul…. in search for eternal peace…. barely managing to carry on with life*….

Why me?

Posted by AtPeace on September 28, 2005

Yen enakku nu ipdi ellam nadakudhu? yen enakku mattum… yen yen yen…

*sigh* Well, this is the story. After seeing this on Visithra‘s blog, I was naturally curious to check out my 23rd blog and its 5th sentence…

(1. Delve into your blog archive.
2. Find your 23rd post (or closest to).
3. Find the fifth sentence (or closest to).
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions. )

And guess what it turned out to be?

‘Anyone else want to say it?’

Forget the comments I received, this more or less sums up the response I received for my previous post.

Kathirikka… Kathirikka… Gundu kathirikka…

Posted by AtPeace on September 19, 2005

Take it from me – for every girl who’s conscious/supposed to be conscious about her age, there are ten guys worried about their weight. And it’s downright hilarious.

P peeped his head through the door, appearing extremely apprehensive. He was greeted with our warm smiles. As he kept looking around suspiciously, my smile was replaced with curiosity and amusement. ‘Enna, P? Ulla va’, I invited him to our room.

vettEEE updates…

Posted by AtPeace on August 18, 2005

Okie, there’s one more story on the vettEEEs. Ellarum ennoda soga kadhaiya kelunga, idho inga. Jolly-a oru kalyanathuku pona naan, epdi sogame uruvana madhri veliye vandhen-ngradhu dhan kadhai.

And Krish had advice on how to handle the war I wage every morning. Hmm… oru official advisor range ku ayitu varan, la…? Anyways, with his permission, here’s a part of our chat yesterday :

Krish : i jus read ur post ..hilarious
me : which one?
Krish : i suffer frm the same problem
me : morning blues?
Krish : but i found a remedy re
Krish : if at all u get up
Krish : see
Krish : u get up rite
me : of course i do… i don’t die in my sleep..
Krish : say at 7.30
Krish : then ur brain will have a struggle goin on between 2 sides
Krish : one will remind u to work
Krish : one wud want u 2 sleep
me : there r no 2 sides…
me : only 1
me : 😀
me : seri.. so
Krish : so wot u do
Krish : when its battling
me : ditch both and sleep?
Krish : make it a point to get up and run to bathroom and wash ur face
me : haha!
Krish : dont even think
me : hmmm…
Krish : ur sleepy side will always win if u dont do it
Krish : i have found this
me : hmmm…
me : seri, will try it 2m morning..
Krish : after that if u start sleeping no one can save u
me : vera vazhiye illaya?
Krish : no way 😉

Okay, I didn’t try it this morning, as I actually woke up at 6:30 AM. Nethu naal polambina polambal-la, some internal alarm was set nu nenaikaren. aar-rai mani ku thaana ezhundhutten. So,I haven’t had a chance to try this today. Will try this sometime next week, Krish!!

And oh, I almost forgot to mention Raam’s comment on the ‘Ada Raama’ post. Here it is :

Raam: well, you pretty much described the incident the way it was.. Except for the fact that i was a little surprised that nee enna avalova vaarala nu 😉

Kavala padadha, nanba, innum evlovo iruku life la… unna vaarama enakku thookam varuma, sollu?

Monday morning blues…

Posted by AtPeace on August 16, 2005

I hate monday mornings… Well, on some occasions like today, I hate tuesday mornings too. Heck, I hate every morning… every single one of them – when I’m forced to wake up mid-sleep, that is… I mean, what sort of a time is 6:45 to wake up? Muzhichukara time-a adhu…? Endha kevalavadhi ipdi kalankaarthala ezhundhukara pazhakatha kandu pidichano… kai-la kedachan, samadhi dhan. And if I ever get hold of the chap who said that 8 hrs of sleep is enough for an average human being, I’ll stone him to death. Seriously.
