First Thoughts....

Well, I guess I have to explain why I decided to start blogging...A sort of disclaimer..I've always been dangerously encouraged by friends that I have a thing (whatsoever) for writing. Maybe they were too fed up with my bragging and decided to say something for courtesy sake or some of the more daring ones decided to expose me ;). Whatever the reason is, it has brought me this far...

Another reason maybe because I believe that when you pen down your thoughts (or rather key them down), you interpret them better. "But why should you publish them on the web? (open them for others interpretation)? " I asked myself..And I refused to blog until I found a convincing answer..

I did concoct an answer finally..It was simple enough...I didnt pen my ramblings down(neither keyed them down) untl I decided to blog...Now isn't that convincing enough..

And as regards the title, all my scribblings here are those interpreted straight from the heart, not pre-compiled...just like Java..Now wait, isn't Java compiled at times?So is my blog...And for those geeks who've rightly guessed that I'm working in Java, yes, I am supposed to work in Java...

And a final disclaimer..I am certainly not Miss.Spelling...I misspell a lot:)

Those were my first thoughts..Good luck and thanks...

Very nice blog/thoughts you have there, Nithya! keep it up! Perhaps you can also write more about your passions, books that you've read.....that sort of thing, to make it more interesting. i do recall those DD days myself, but for me it's just a very distant & vague memory now!
Anyway, i look forward to reading more of your stuff on this page & i'll definately leave my comments behind, when i have something to say!
Have a nice day!

The Tamil Epigene - Ponniyin Selvan!

I wonder why I took so many years to get to this epic. Reflecting back, I think it would have been a hither-imposed fear to read complicated Tamil or the thither- proclaimed flair for everything English, books and royalty included. It just took the first 100 pages of this Kalki’s magnum opus to make me comprehend the irrationality of both the above self and external imposters. I realized how easy it is to read Kalki or how much I’m in love with my Tamil roots, literature and royalty included! If there was anything real about an organic change, it is what Ponniyin Selvan did to me, and I could not but write about it. And, the good news is that, I’m not the only one Ponniyin Selvan has done this to or will do this to. 

I see the people of Tamilnadu in a new incandescent light, and with a bit of narcissism that I come from the same territory. I’ve always preferred the dusky complexion, but now, I’ve come to love the dark-skinned Tamil women who adorn their wardrobes with ostentatious colo…

The Good Old DD Days....

Wow...How many kaapi fans existed in obscurity!And how many has my blog brought into limelight!! (I know this is some tooooo loud trumpet blowing ;) , this is also to immensely thank all my dear friends whom I pestered to read my blog and post comments, ("Leave your footprints there" - I ordered) . Thanks once again guyz...not just for going through my posts and posting your comments..but also for continuing to be good friends with me after all these rounds of pestering..(Read this as...there are many more rounds to come... :) )

This post, as you may have rightly guessed, is about Doordarshan, not the DD as it exists today, but the DD of yesteryears...when you didn't have the satellite TV or glamour associated with it. Doordarshan had a few serials then and even fewer movies....and even fewer news broadcasts....And thats precisely the reason why it was adored... by men and women and children alike for reasons of their own..

If you are Tamil, you would definitely remembe…

Family Doctor

Are you someone who takes some common pills for common-cold? Do you love to look more feverish than fever itself when you have one and flaunt your flu? Do you atone your once-in-a-while restaurant sins  with 'Digene' or 'Eno'? Or are you someone who does not prefer those extraneous  antibodies and depend on your own body to corroborate its internal police force and resurrect itself during those "minor, 'mostly harmless' injuries" ? - Or maybe, one of  those 'home-made organic medicine' lovers. You could be one of these categories, or a few of these, or even none, and yet, there are fair chances that you would have had a family doctor, for atleast a while..

A family doctor is not that just that  doctor at the clinic in the corner of the road who treats your occasional childhood wounds. He (or she) is someone who you grow up with, someone whom you can talk to about your favorite cricket player or your most-hated school teacher, as he checks your…
