Today I came across this topic online while browsing through some psychology blogs and found this interesting. Infact I felt more connected to this article and even took a personality test, whose link is at the end of this article followed by my result.

Demisexuality is a sexual orientation in which someone feels sexual attraction only to people with whom they have an emotional bond. Most demisexuals feel sexual attraction rarely compared to the general population, and some have little to no interest in sexual activity. Keep reading to understand more about this orientation.

This is an interesting post I received in my inbox through Quora digest. I liked this story so much that I started taking it seriously and couldn't resist sharing the same with you all. Along with the story I would like to add few more points - (i) avoid pessimism (ii) learn to let things go (iii) love yourself unconditionally. The story goes here:-

A friend shared this with me few days ago and I'd like to share with you too:

The first day of school our professor introduced himself and challenged us to get to know someone we didn't already know. I stood up to look around when a gentle hand touched my shoulder. I turned around to find a wrinkled, little old lady beaming up at me with a smile that lit up her entire being, she said, "Hi, handsome. My name is Rose. I'm eighty-seven  years old. Can I give you a hug?" 

I came across this video on YouTube from the channel "Kommune India" and this channel is about the people narrating a story from their lives. This story from Tisca Chopra (Priya Aurora of 'I Love India' fame) about the casting couch. Tisca Chopra is a great grand niece of acclaimed writer Kushwant Singh and she is a good blogger, theatre artiste and works with various NGO. The credibility of the story can be questioned and there are various conjectures for the RP in question whether it is Rakesh Roshan and his director assistant son Hrithik Roshan or someone else.... Leaving those things aside, the way she narrates the story for 10 minutes is interesting and holds the listener's attention. The funniest line is "This is what Murphy didn't speak about... When you don't want to hear something, everyone will tell you about it... in great detail... in enormous details" and another friend's experience with a Tamil director "I want the script to penetrate every inch of your body" and director in "Satin maroon lungi"... She speaks about the Outdoor experiences in a lighter vein without darkening them and ends the story with another version of casting couch - gay directors.. So sharing this video for you...

லகமே அந்த சிறுவனின் கோபத்தை பார்த்து ரசித்துக்கொண்டிருக்கிறது. தன் பாட்டிக்காக அரசு அதிகாரிகளை மிரட்டிய சிறுவனின் வீடியோ காட்சிதான் இன்று உலகை வலம் வரும் மெகா வைரல் வீடீயோ.

கடந்த 2-3 வருடங்களாக எனது ப்ளாக் எழுதும் பழக்கம் குறைந்ததற்கு முகநூல் (அதுதாங்க.. Facebook) மட்டும் காரணம் இல்லை, என்ன எழுதுவது என்ற கற்பனை வறட்சியும் தான். முன்பு ரொம்ப யோசிக்காமல் பார்த்த சினிமா,படித்த புத்தகங்கள் என தொடர்ந்து எழுதிக்கொண்டு இருந்தேன். ஆனால் எப்போது சினிமா விமர்சனங்களை எழுதுவதை நிறுத்தி personal blogs கூடுதலாக எழுதவேண்டும் என்று முடிவுசெய்தேனோ அப்போதே கற்பனை வறட்சியில் எனது வலைப்பூ இளைத்துவிட்டது. நேற்று அனன்யா அக்காவின் Facebook பதிவை பார்த்தபோது “இப்படி எல்லாம் கூட யோசிக்க முடியுமா?” என்று ஆச்சரியப்பட்டுப்போனேன். Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder என்பதற்கு சரியான உதாரணம் இந்த பதிவு. அவரது Facebook நண்பர்கள் (தினமணி வாசகர்களும்)மட்டுமே படித்த இந்த பதிவை இங்கே copy paste செய்கிறேன்.

A Dog named sexEverybody I know usually calls their dog Rover or Spot. I called mine Sex. Now Sex has been very embarrassing to me. When I went to City Hall to renew the dog's license, I told the clerk I'd like a license for Sex. He said, "I would like to have one too!". Then I said, "She is a dog!!". He said he didnt care what she looked like. I said, "You don't understand, I had Sex since I was 9 years old." He replied, "You must have been quite a strong boy". When I decided to get married, I told the minister that I would like to have Sex at the weddimg. He told me to wait until after the wedding was over. I said, "But Sex has played a big part in my life, and my life revolves around Sex."

Bala RamananMy facebook profile pic is a huge me, eating a 'huger' piece of cake - and that pretty much sums up 'Bala'. So, this is exactly where this blog and everything I had to say about running should have ended. Of course not. right? My wife Priya is discussing her post-partum weight gain and I am doing the requisite nods at right intervels, and boom out of the blue...

"Bala, looks like you have not lost your pregnancy weight yet".

I go to the 'pretend & pray' mode (pretend - I did not hear; Pray - No one else did) till

" Oh, he's got time, his baby is not out of the tummy yet!"

Mr. Nityananda said to a packed media that “I am going to jump into acting bandwagon. I have already gained more popularity because of the video episode. People who saw me in that video has told I look smarter than Ajith which I feel very proud of. Moreover I am not afraid of facing cameras as you saw in the recent video. So I am entering Kollywood to give a run for stars like Rajini Kanth, Kamal Hasan etc” smiled Nithu.

Shreya SaranDebate raised to the core on yesterday’s parliament session on the topic of who should be sent to Pakistan for peace talks between India and Pakistan. Congress has nominated South Indian actress Shreya to resolve this issue. Sonia Gandhi told the house that "After watching the movie Kutti we were impressed that Shreya should be sent to Pakistan for peace talks. The way she handled the tension of love between 2 guys in that movie is amazing. The decision was made immediately after she delivered the dialogue ‘ENNAKU KUTTI VENUM’. That is one of the best dialogue I ve ever seen in the movie. Similarly we hope she can go to Pakistan PM Gillani and ask him ‘ENAKU KASHMIR VENUM’ thereby getting entire Kashmir for India.

Preity ZintaThe auction of IPL threw new controversy when an unknown Chennai guy called Karupasaamy made himself available for auction and was sold to Kings XI for a prize of USD 750,000 dollars which is the rate equal to West Indies sensation Kieran Pollard. Karupasaamy, who is the leading run scorer in Marina beach cricket is also an opening bowler. He was very happy about his price in IPL. Lalit Modi, the commissioner of IPL told the press “Today totally 12 players were sold, 3 players fetched the maximum amount. They are Pollard, Bond and Karupasaamy”. When asked who Karupasaamy is, Mr.Modi told “Karupasaamy is a promising Under 19 cricketer who plays for India. you guys dont know him??? You guys should start concentrating on Under 19 cricket too” laughed Modi thereby insulting many journalists there in the conference room. Priety Zinta and Shilpa Shetty who were there at either side of Modi, as usual laughed as though Mr.Modi cracked the joke of the century.

Our chef oflate had been posting his recipes left, right and center at an alarming pace. Since I wanted to balance the nature of the posts, I waited a while to post his recipes. I tried his Mushroom rice once when my family was away from home and I must say that it was very easy to make and tasty too. So I wish Vijay to post such easy recipes for bachelor / single men. As usual I used to tell him that he has tremendous amount patience as well that burning passion towards cooking, which normally men lack. For this today's post on recipes I am combining two of his posts into one - Lemon Pickle and Rice Uppuma. Hey.. I have a doubt... Why most of those who post recipes name their blog as some "corner".? Today happens to be his cute kid Adarsh's "Aksharabhyasam", so let us all wish him all the best.
