Priority-Our priced possession

“Things which matter most should never be at the mercy of things which matter the least –

Johann Wolfganag von Geothe

How many times do you think about what your priorities are when you wake up in the morning?

In fact,never. Even if we do think about our activities that will be taking place during the course of the day, we seldom prioritise them. Going to class without having breakfast since you woke up late, waking up late since you were smart enough to trust your waking skills,sleeping in class since you are tired , tired cause the poor tummy has been deprived of food. The cycle goes on and on thereby churning your day into an unproductive one. Good Lord! Why do we always complicate things?

When I talk about priorities I don’t mean salary, job, food clothing shelter and the like. Here I am trying to emphasise on the little things we give unnecessary importance in the name of attention, peer pressure and of course to prove the unique ability to “fit in”. Prove to whom?

All the 7 billion people in the world since you see, they all came together to play the role of SUPERMAN whenever you called out to them!

Come on is it worth all the pain?

Got less marks in a test? Ate an extra cream biscuit? The chick next door didn’t wave back at you today?- Oh no my life has gone for a toss!!

Yeah right! Imagine another scenario where you think about whether those extra two marks really do matter or not. Oh yes it does. After all when I finally leave for my heavenly abode I shall carry it with me squeezing that 2 extra marks into the coffin that can barley accommodate me!

Gobbled down an extra helping and now feeling guilty?

 On the other hand try eating with an open mind thinking nothing is going to affect me. The feeling is refreshing I say!

We might not know it but teeny weeny things affect us through the course of the day. Our minds are sometimes so cluttered and clogged we really can’t point a finger at what actually gives us happiness. For us happiness is what we get around a 2 metre radius.

 Happiness is actually a state of mind, influenced by us and us alone.

Mummy- The Irreplaceable

Mummy,  Amma, Ma. Just hearing this magical word gives a sort of comfort felt by every being in this world. Words can never describe the role a mother plays in the life of a child right from its birth .
My mother is someone who has carved me and shaped me into an individual who I may not say perfect, but does have values that am proud I have inculcated.
My mother, a self- motivated woman has been the sole reason people define me as sorted, head strong , disciplined,  self-driven and above all a ‘good- natured’ human being who has a sense of ‘ justice’.
To this day if I aspire to do something, I owe it all to my mother’s encouragement. Heaven alone knows whether I will ever find such a selfless person anywhere in this world.
Mummy, today I am sitting here in Mumbai beating the humidity, the heat. I miss your touch, the comforting words you tell me, the way you worry about me (though I don’t want you to worry), the way you pamper me. I admit I have often felt it annoying when you aske…


Gambling amongst the chitter chatter, a small pause to catch her breath She rocked back and forth holding her little tummy, as though inside it were a child unfed.
Tears rolled down in all its glories to compliment the joke put forth How does one churn balooney into humour, with no one to provoke?
The unforced blush had a strong impact on complexions never seen These moments took their breath away, these moments didn't seem to demean
A déjà vu moment was felt around, the birth of a pleasant revisit Hungry they all became for more, cos no one wanted it’s exit.
The hero here deserved a pat on the back for this act of charm and wit. He gave the funny bone some good exercise, and made everyone’s ego quit!

Sometimes its nice to let yourself loose Laugh like never before.... Infact...its always nice.....

Trichy Police - “Redefining Peace”

According to the statistics for 2007, released by the National Criminal Records Bureau, Tamil Nadu had a total cognizable crime rate of 261.7 per one lakh population, while that of Chennai was 256.9.  The crime rate, defined as the number of crime trends as it balances incidence with growth in population.
Chennai’s crime rate ensures that the metro is ranked a creditable 24th among 35 major cities in the country while Coimbatore stands at the 22nd position and Madurai at the 30th.  However the situation in Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru can send a chill of apprehension down anyone’s spine.  Delhi has earned the skeptical distinction of being the most unsafe metro in the country, topping the list of the number of crimes.
According to latest government statistics, Delhi accounted for 13.2 per cent of a total of 3,43,749 crimes reported in 35 mega cities across the country in 2009 followed by Bengaluru (9.4 %) and Mumbai (9.1%).

Now picturise the following situation: Chaos, confusion…
