Meet the new minimalist!

Your friend has become a minimalist now!

Yes, I have started adopting minimalism as a way of life.  Its a challenging mindset especially when you have kids.

Look around, you will find that there are 1000 things that we possess just as a matter of self-pride but no usefulness. Gadgets, gifts, one-time useful items, and so on.  It was very frustrating to manage them all.

Having determined to 'clean up', I have almost become a military officer insisting that we be a gatekeeper for any new items that enters our house.

Many items from my items are being cleared. Will post an photo album sooner.

Not only things, number of blogs also have come down.

More on this soon!

It was a bad day; but...

It really  started  as a bad day..but as the day closes, its a good day.
A small lie here - it didnt start bad..I woke up at was few hours later it became  bad.
I dont care now whether  it  was because  of  stars  or because  of  my shortcomings  but when I understood  the situation  like an outsider  it started  becoming  better.
We shouldn't  screwup our family  and  friends  just because  someone  else  does  that  to us.
We have tools at our disposal.
We can handle any situation.
I don't  need a crown;
The world will not drown;
Even if, I will not frown .

Kaththi movie review

Watched  Kaththi  1st day 2nd show.
Vijay  double act. He fights for farmers against  cola  companies land grabbing. Very long story telling. Many scenes remind you  of  sura, velayudham, thuppaki  and thalaivaa. Some scenes  are interesting  and some are really testing  patience. Murugadoss  reminds  scenes from  7aam Arivu. Anirudh music is actually  a noise. Vijay is very youthful. Opening  scene is really good and i believed  entire story  will build on it. Murugadoss tends to do another message for society  movie. Samantha  has no role to play. Missing logics in some places. Vijay fans cheered a lot in the theatre.
You can watch  once.

Rotten fences

Last month the Bangalore kid's abuse newsat School made a wave - but lets not forgot forget there are more and more rotten fences polluting the society. They should be eradicated.  I wish this Diwali be celebrated to wage a war against the modern Narakasuras.

Today ia Jose Silva birthday

August 11 is Jose Silva's birthday. My ideas on spirituality was shaped by the mental model created by this man. Even today I keep going to his books again and again and keep myself operating at Alpha level.
I helped many through his techniques. I could heal myself through his ideas. I stayed positive at will.
My salutes to this great man.

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.
