Long Forgotten Songs #1

In a musical mood/mode today, I thought of documenting some of my favorite songs here. Since I am a 90’s kid, my list would most probably cover songs that came out during the late nineties and later. If you are an AR Rahman fan, this album would definitely be cherish-worthy for you. Rockstar which was... Continue Reading →

The New Journal In The Town

Remember the good old days when diary writing was a fad? It was one of the ways we recorded memories and revisited them whenever we wanted to. It was also one of the trails which we had, to check how far we have come, as a person. My earliest memory of diary writing is when... Continue Reading →

Thoughts from the Hull

A noon show of the movie Titanic pushed me to write this post. One particular scene in this movie always stumps me hard. The scene where Jack makes Rose promise that she will not die that night and not let go of her hopes of staying alive. He goes on to say that she must... Continue Reading →

Chennai is no exception to that trait. From "Avoid Rajnikanth and Oh Bangalore so great" to " CSK is supreme", Chennai city has its own... Continue Reading →

We, The People of Chennai

This post is a memory. A very precious one, which would find place as a seperate chapter in my autobiography, if I ever write one that is. I realised "We" for the first time, when my beloved city was being pounded by rains, in November- December 2015. It was a daunting time for all of... Continue Reading →

Vanakkam Chennai!

Imma Chennai City Gangsta!! 😛 Before you guys think I am crazy enough to say this, let me say I am. Chennai means that much to me.

Ulaga Nayakan

When one can go and write about the style factor, one should also write about the talent factor. That is what fairplay teaches us. Who else can fit into the tag of 'Ulaga Nayakan' better than Padmashri Kamal Hassan? Born in the southern town of Paramakudi, Kamal Hassan has been around, in the filmdom, since...
