Thanga Meengal

I watched the Thanga Meengal movie in Sun Tv last night. Though I know its a heavy subject movie, I made it a point to watch the movie along with my daughter.
The movie has so much messages to offer. My daughter asked in the beginning why it has been titled so to which I said I would answer at the end. I did.
Nobody has acted in the movie. It has message for the schools,  teachers,  parents and each one of us. Every father who sends quality time with his daughter will understand this movie.
This movie would have won awards but the message of the movie is beyond all that.
Our Kollywood heroes will not dare to act in such movies as there is no gun, vulgarity and item songs.
Special mention to Revita teacher as well who became my favourite too. Glad that the movie ended in a positive note otherwise I would have gone to bed with a heavy heart.

Airtel Super Singer 4 - My views

Airtel Super Singer is the only program I watch on the television. Singing along with singers energize me and the program is well organized.
Though my favorite, the program is not without flaws. There are instances where I could clearly see bias towards certain contestants.
My favourites are Syed, Parvathy and Sonia.
For me, Syed's voice is manliness, Parvathy is that of perfection, Sonia is that of Singer Chitra like beauty.
All three are amazing singers.  Selecting one person as a winner is only momentary. How would you say who is the best singer among the judges? All are good in several ways.
I am not for online/SMS voting. Technology can be exploited to someone to get more votes.
I am a huge fan of Singer Chitra, and that makes me Sonia my favourite.I wish she wins this title.
One person whom I feel should have been in finals is Krishnan.
The judge panel should be changed.

Merry Christmas

I enjoyed following India Test Cricket

I really enjoyed following India Vs South Africa Cricket first Test match recently. It was a fully loaded game where both the teams showed the spirit. But I would say the seem to be underdog Indian team having failed the one day series, did a great job in taking the full control of the game.
My key takeaways from the recent IND Vs SA is as below
1) We had to experiment with inexperienced irrespective of the results and its worth it.
2) A sport is a real sport only when both the sides play to the full spirit of winning
3) Test series is like a War. It needs strategies.
4)A written off team member will give his full if he is given an opportunity to prove himself.
5) Everyone should strive to be "..remembered as the guy who gave his all whenever he was on the field..."
6) A sport has a psychological element for each individual and as a team
7) Striking early is one of the strategies
8) One should not play for records; however, keep playing.
