As I Pass by – 08/09/10

September 8, 2010

I fear cards:

Every unknown number call I attend, I fear. Every mail from a long lost friend, I fear. Any call from a person who I thought not going to call me, I fear. Its been raining wedding cards in physical, mail and call form. And planning to attend them itself, is a task. Once planned next task is about checking who are all coming there.Β  The next thing is, thinking, zeroing in and buying a gift. Phew!!!

Even though it’s a tedious process for me, I don’t want to skip any marriage. I like to attend them as it gives a chance to meet many of my friends and a lot of travel. Within the span of 20 days, I have to attend 5 marriages but I missed one 😦 He is good friend of mine during the training but I couldn’t go there. One good thing about this 5 marriages are they are of people I met at different phases (School, College, Training, working and Blogging) of my life. Absolutely cool πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€


Meeting school friends:

First marriage is of my school friend’s brother. I am happy that my friend called me as I am a kind of studious guy during school days atleast till my Xth standard. I used to sit in the first bench!!! (Height is also a problem πŸ™‚ ) and I thought the only thing I can do in school is studying and then playing. I had no fun or some meaningful conversations with my friends there. Many of my friends recognized me and poor me, didn’t recognized few who studied with me till Xth. They have changed in physical appearance so much and I meeting them after 9 years didn’t helped much πŸ˜€


Hell of a trip:

Then it’s a marriage of my classmate in college. More than the marriage it’s the trip we made in bike made it memorable. It’s a trip from Chennai Adyar to Kanchipuram by evening. One could feel how worst the traffic and roads in Chennai when we ride during peak hours. Then from Tambaram we took the mudichur road to reach there. Even though the road is good for most part, the ride is really difficult in the remaining patches and at times half the road was not to be seen on one side. At some places the depth of the roads made me to think that somebody purposely digging them. We jumped in and bounced up in one of that kind. And the lack of light didn’t help us. After 2 hours of travel we reached the marriage hall just to meet 3 of our friends, handover the gift and had dinner. Once again our travel started but this time via national highway. The road is too good but still we are so tired. I am just a pillion rider in that πŸ™„ I myself hit the bed once I reached my home. Its one hell of a ride which I am not gonna forget, if not for lifetime, for quite some time πŸ™‚


It happened!!!

You guys didn’t see its coming and me too. Never thought I will do that in my life. But alas it’s done by me.. I hit the gym and going there for 2 weeks now. Hoping that I will continue to go there for atleast 6 months πŸ™‚


Monster’s Inc:

I am just fell in love with this movie and its characters. Another gem from Pixar guys. Only they can make the monsters to look cute. I don’t want to say much but don’t miss watching this movie guys. At least the first 12 minute part. I loved that sequence so much that each time I log into my PC I see that. Best comic sequence. My favorite character Mike Wachowski or Googly bear or Googly is so cute. He is one-eyed and all his expressions are just cool and funny.

Watch the below from minute 3, you will laugh for sure πŸ™‚



I have heard the songs of this movie more than the songs of Endhiran πŸ™„ To say the least Thaman rocks. He has came up with a gem of an album which has something for everyone. My favorites are Athadi athadi and Paniye.

    Ahaaa…ok ok, give your house number, we will tell them that you are in love with a girl (of course!) and you need to get married so that you could get to invite and receive gifts. We all know that Kanagu, whom are you kidding? you have been regularly ‘hitting’ the gym also ! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    kanagu: U got good imagination bro πŸ˜‰ no wonder you won the fiction contest πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    Monsters one of my fav animation movies ever; watched it in those days when it released in sathyam, i guess about 7 years back ! I hope they come up with a 3D version of it or atleast a sequel in 3D.

    kanagu: Yeah.. a sequel is coming up and I am sure it will be in 3D πŸ™‚

    Ayyanar songs featured in my June V – Tunes; yeah, Paniye wasnt there though. Loved its orchestration, but I felt the tune to be quite ordinary. But worth a listen anyways. My fav is Aathadi Aathadi ! πŸ˜€

    kanagu: Even Pachai Killi song is good.. loved the lyrics πŸ™‚

    I could hardly understand a word of the songs but i guess melody doesn’t necessarily require knowledge of language. Loved the paniye song.

    It’s the same story with weddings with me πŸ™‚ I do try to attend all those who invite me but alas! I’ve missed one or two that were held in far-off places. I hope my friends did not mind my absence 😐

    kanagu: πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ They won’t mind as they know that you would have if it held in some closer place πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Good luck with your gym routine!

    kanagu: Thanks Raj πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    I like the songs too. It’s great that we have one more very talented composer to add to the sizeable list of Tamil music directors who rock! The more, the merrier!


    kanagu: Yes.. tamil cinema is blessed with some great musicians always..

    Oh kanagu..when will I get a chance to attend your marriage. Don’t tell me it will be when Aryan is 18!!!..

    kanagu: Surely it won’t be that late πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ maybe in 3 years you have to come to Chennai πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Are u kidding about your GYM …or going there to see some girls?

    kanagu: Surely not.. I am doing exercise πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    I have never watched that movie……

    kanagu: Watch it with Aryan.. you will love it πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    That should be an adventurous bike trip from Adyar to Kanchipuram:) The longest self-drive I’ve done is from AnnaNagar to Redhills, and Anna Nagar to Muthukadu! Oh god, my hands and back were crying in agony:(

    kanagu: Surely it hurts 😦 😦 But its fun too.. πŸ™‚

    Marriages – oh..that’s the best time to have fun! Well said on that Kanagu..lot of planning goes into that- making so many conference calls and multiple meetings are required to decide on what gift to buy, what to wear, how to go, who to pick up whom et cetera! I miss those fun now 😦 😦

    kanagu: True… lot goes into it… πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ But you r in Europe na.. so you will be missing it…

    And again Ya…i just love monster’s Inc, especially the animation/characterisation of Sulley and Boo. And I fell in love with the way Sulley calls “Boooo” much that my HD calls me like that *Blush Blush**

    kanagu: ha ha ha πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  17. September 19, 2010 9:31 am
