Tamil mandram

நேரம் சரியாக மாலை 5.30 மணி. மாணவர் ஒருங்கிணைப்பாளர்கள் அரங்கத்தை ஒழுங்கு செய்துகொண்டிருக்க, தமிழுக்காக கூடிய அந்தத் திரளான கூட்டம் , பேச்சாளர் மற்றும் நிர்வாகிகள் வந்ததைக் கண்டதும் ஆர்ப்பரித்தது.

எப்போதும் சோனா தமிழ் மன்றத்தின் கலை விழாவிற்குத் தானாகவே கூடும் கூட்டத்திற்கு முதல் காரணம், அங்கு பேசவரும் பேச்சாளர்கள், ஒரு மணிநேரம் பேசினாலும், அது பொழுதைப் போக்குகிற பேச்சாக இல்லாமல் பொழுதை ஆக்குகிற பேச்சாகவே இருக்கும் என்பதால் தான். தமிழருவி மணியன், முனைவர்.கு.ஞானசம்பந்தன், பட்டிமன்றம் ராசா, இவர்கள் வரிசையில் இந்தமுறை சிறப்பான துடிப்பான பேச்சை நம் நெஞ்சில் நிறுத்திச் சென்றவர் “திரு.பாரதி கிருஷ்ணகுமார்.

These Nineteen men who were and are in higher position in their respective governments of US and UK, speaks openly on various issues and faults of their governments.

That’s something brave and to be appreciated for, because it is not that easy to talk about the government policies. Yes they are not the first to question things but people who questioned are not available and people don’t know where they are. This book is a great attempt by honest people.

As rightly said somewhere in the book, the time line divides world history is BC and AD, but after 9/11 things have changed that much, in the sense we can refer world history as Before 9/11 and after 9/11. We know the brutal attack in the US, but what happened afterward? Us with its NATO mask destroyed the livelihood of Afghanistan and then in IRAQ for a fake reason. (more…)

I know the film. But i have not watched the movie fully. It was an act of negligence. Known Negligence. I regret for that at this moment. “The Pursuit of HappYness” is not just a film. Its about a life. About the fact that Happiness is not a thing to achieve but it is a process to be pursued always in our life. As the tag line of this blog goes Connect the Dots because your experience Good or Bad has made what you are. Every second in life teaches us something new what we don’t know. (more…)

3 years over still Tamils all over the world are waiting for the justice to come, but the international community is not showing any sign of that happening in the near future. Trapped and betrayed by the ugly politics of countries whose vested interest in the lands of Sri Lanka for the economic reasons decided the fate of 1.75 lakhs people to death.

Few films here and there was produced, financially unsuccessful but emotionally created a greater impact on the Tamils all over the world. (more…)

Most of us like Traveling. That too if it is a kind of excursion then we feel great. The habit of recording what you see in diaries will help us feel back the joyfulness of the journey at anytime in the future.
