Last week a news of alleged suicides of Engineering college students in Tamilnadu was disturbing me. All the students were from first or second year of the colleges and the reasons for the suicide (there are doubts of murders) are something that can't be accepted. All the incidents point to the ill treatment of the students by the college management, especially the hostel related issues and one incident alleging the theft case. The suicide of three girls near the Kallakurichi paramedical college also pointed towards the absolute lack of infrastructure and the student's protest against that. What makes me wonder is what makes the parents to make a beeline for these colleges that "lack" a proper infrasturucture either it be labs or hostel?

Odam - the canoe

A couple of weeks ago my friend Suresh messaged me the URL of the shortfilm he is associated with and asked me to see it. I saw it and ofcourse I had my own preconceived notions from the start of the movie. But by the time the climax rolled, I couldn't say whether it was a shock or surprise and I was dumbstruck. I showed the film to my teammates and they also were expecting a high octane action in the end but shocked. Since then I wanted to share this video to you all but today only I was able to.. See and share it among with your friends.

Being someone interested in relationships and psychology, this is one that caught my attention last week. What puts off the partners in a relationship? No relationships is perfect and whomever claims that theirs is flawless, is definitely faking it. And no relation fails on a day. The partners are put off in some ways, slowly the pressure builds up and finally it explodes in a day. When finally the relationship is over and people look back, the reason of the initial hatred will be very hazy. That's when people will start saying that the relationship broke on flimsy grounds.

Suicide is one of my favorite topics and I am always fascinated to find what might have gone into the minds of the person who had committed that act at the final moment while they feel the soul leaving the body. I felt this fascination when I saw the movie "Vaaname Ellai (1992)", directed by Late K. Balachander. Even though the movie concluded with the protagonists giving up their mass suicide plan, I always kept asking a question - Can people who had planned their death date sing, dance and have all the fun without any grim feeling? Isn't suicide supposed to be a sorrow affair?
