கடந்த மாதம் தமிழகமே தன்னெழுச்சியாக தலைமை இல்லாமல் ஜல்லிக்கட்டுக்காக போராடிக்கொண்டிருந்த வேளையில் நான் எனது client side business partner- ஆஸ்திரேலியாவை சேர்ந்தவரிடம் இந்த போராட்டத்தை பற்றி சொல்லிக்கொண்டிருந்தேன். அது 4வது நாள். அவரிடம் மாணவர்கள் அமைதியாக போராடிக்கொண்டிருந்த வேளையில் காவல் துறை மெரீனா கடற்கறையில் மின்விளக்குகளை அணைத்துவிட்டதையும், அதற்கு பதிலாக மாணவர்கள் தங்கள் மொபைல் அலைபேசிகளில் உள்ள டார்ச்சை கொண்டு வெளிச்சமூட்டிய காட்சியை பற்றி சொல்லிக்கொண்டிருந்தபோது எனக்கு மயிர்கூச்செரிந்தது. அவரிடம் 7ம் நாள் முடிவில் காவல்துறை வன்முறையை கொண்டு அந்த போராட்டத்தை ஒடுக்கியதை சொன்னபோது - I feel sorry for those people என்று சொன்னார்.
The trigger point to this post is the one which I read on "Anandha Vikatan" that whole men community should hang their heads in shame for the Bangalore mass molestation incident. I in no way support or justify the behaviour of those anti-social elements and strongly condemn their behaviour. I also don't have a second thought in the idea that they must be punished. But.. putting the whole Indian male under that perverse category is something I object. I don't want to hang my head in shame for the behaviour of some random men. This post is about why I hate anyone who talks feminism and the women are very adept is painting an image that suits their purpose.
This year is drawing curtains down and I am looking back this year with fondness. Of the past few years, 2016 was the one that had me sighing with relief. Professionally this year got me into an assignment which I enjoy a lot - a client facing SAP implementation. Despite all the insecurties and bearing the consequences of management's indecisiveness, the end picture was a favourable one for me. So all issues are forgiven. Monetarily this was the best year I ever had and was able to remove the sword hanging over my head, so that I can concentrate on the quality of life / work in the coming years. Personally this year was just for myself so that I was able to do things I wished to do for a longer time. Ofcourse the drama of the year was complete with sentimental emotions like family reunion, my mother's recovery from critical organ failure and the subsequent events... I am moving on to 2017 hoping that it should be atleast as good as 2016. Love & wishes to all of you... Have a wonderful 2017!!!
Oflate the Hindu mythology is going for a makeover in the entertainment scene and it is a welcoming trend. I believe that this trend started with the Amish Tripathy's trilogy "Immortals of Meluha" which was an instant blockbuster in the Indian English Literature and eventually translated into various Indian languages including Tamil. The TV serials followed the trend started by "Mahabharath" that was telecast in Star TV in Hindi and later in all the regional channels. Even though we had other serials like "Devon ki Dev", Star TV's "Mahabharath" was significant in a way that it humanised the characters rather than painting them just Black and White.
