Nobel prize...

So my sister is very dedicated to her work and that really baffles us (her family members... especially me). If you know my sister, you'll understand why we find this strange... she is and has always been a carefree person, the one who likes to laze around and do nothing in particular. She is more of a people person, she likes hanging out with her ever increasing circle of friends and having a good time. So when I heard that she was working late these days and working during the weekends too, I started to panic. I rang her up yesterday to find out what happened to the sister I used to know...

Me : So, what's up?
Nam : Nothin much... I have a three day weekend.
Me : Great! Do you wannna come here, shall I book the tickets? (note how loving and kind I am)
Nam : No, don't go booking anything. I will have to go to office tomorrow.
Me : But I thought you said you had a long weekend...?
Nam : Yeah, it is a holiday but I volunteered to go and help.
Me : I am deeply touched by your dedication. If there was a Nobel Prize for hard work... you would definitely get it, Nam.
Nam : And if there was a Nobel prize for sarcasm, you would win it.

Yeah, even I am relieved... she's still herself.

Illayaraj is 10th std fail and he became the famous composer of india, Bill gates is a college droupout and he is teh richist man now, JRD Tata 12th pass and we have Air India.

So it actually doesnt matter if we are lazy or not or not a good student etc.. so you have got to get that wrong concept out of your mind that just because s/he was that that time ''im surprised s/he is dedicated''

So actually there is nothing surprising - its a normal fact - if people like their job and does it with dedication they get attached to it.

So i dont think laziness or poor school results had any effect/ influence on it.

The Danny effect and the Cooper effect

With all the free time I have now (thanks to Cooper) I thought of writing something here.  This is Cooper, a friend's dog, and whenever I go home to Nagercoil, we generally hang out together, talking and taking Cooper for long walks in the colony. This time was no different, we were on our walk when this stray little street dog started barking and I was holding cooper's leash... my hand in that loop when Cooper suddenly became way excited than usual and took off after the stray like Flash on steroids. He dragged me along and I couldn't keep up; I stumbled, fell on the bad road and bruised myself.  And since I had nothing better to do, I made a collage of the wounds to send to my sister... who found it hilarious that I fell. So anyway, went to the doc, got my tetanus shot and now I'm just taking it easy for the next few days. And one person has been constantly on my mind since this incident, Danny.

I met Danny about 12 years ago in Santhi Nilayam, the special school I …

Hair messed up

December 2016 and January 2017

The last few months of 2016 were crazy in so many ways. First there was the money issue (when the higher denomination notes lost their value overnight) which created a mess of economic proportions. The insane queues at banks and ATM's and all the scrambling that was happening to make sense of it all, made November quite memorable.  Around the same time, Trump came out victorious which I thought was pretty hilarious... a sort of validation that people are the same everywhere, based on who we elected here.  Anyway, after the chaos of November, December came with her own brand of drama. I heard of Cyclone Nada, but I was busy in Nagercoil then enjoying a birthday party...Even that was fun, surprising the birthday girl who did not know that I was at the airport with dad. She walks up and down and I'm hiding behind the newspaper pretending to read it, then I see Manoj by her side, and they finally come out and she is hugging my dad and after that I walk up behind her and tap her on t…
