Watching Inidhu Inidhu today

Watching Inidhu Inidhu today

Today being Friday and a weekend just came to my home a bit early. Then drove to a nearby theater to watch Inidhu Inidhu. The film seemed to have been just released by Aug 20 and I have watched it in a week's time. I believe this is one of the first films which I see in its nascent stage. I have never had an tighter interest and/or affinity to films.

So what has caused this change to be swept in?

  1. Was that the signs of my alma mater in the movie?
  2. A little relaxation after the really hectic week?
  3. A little soothing comfort to the aching soul and the paining heart?
Coming back to the film it does not have any long running stories, fights or like that. However it takes you back to your college days that demonstrates an innocent smile, flawless friendship and an affectionate love. As the climax of the story reveals the farewell is a very painful one. After four years of being together this is the most cruel day to strew the tight-bound friends apart. I would at this point recall a song from another Tamil movie which also speaks about this 'கண்ணீரில் தான் எங்கள் farewell  party'. 

Some of the features I actually hated in the film were:
  1. Scenes of ragging. VIT demonstrated a no-tolerance of ragging and I believe they should have avoided these gestures from the holy campus. 
  2. Taints of friendship getting into the lines of romance. Well! I have no more comments in this as it might lead to controversies. 
Anyways a film that is a good to watch after a long time. Kollywood has seen a 'watchable' film after really really a long time. Thanks to Prakashraj and Duet Pictures for bringing out this film.

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) Temple

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) TempleA calm and poised atmosphere near Vellore, the most elegant town of Tamil Nadu in the district of Arakkonam is a village called Nemili. Seated in her own house, Sri Bala Tripura Sundari has been incessantly showering her blessings on Her devotees for several years. I have also heard of Her temple from my relatives but it is a significant truth cum stipulation that unless the Lordess wishes you to see you, it is becoming almost next to impossible to go to this temple. Even to search information on the website, I think, I could not locate it till now and just reached a YahooGroups website NemiliBala. I wanted to share a few info about this temple so that other pilgrims too can get benefitted by praying to the Lordess for Her darshan and blessings.Other temples of Tripura Sundari:ThiruvanmiyurTri SoolamThirukazhunkundramThiruvathiaiSirkazhiHistory of the Temple/Sthala Varalaru:The significance of Bala Tripura Sundari unlike Her other temples enlisted a…

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and Restrictions

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and RestrictionsOne of my friend was suggesting me this -- "Why can not you put up some kind of blog post or an article summarizing the 48 day observation rules to be observed. Well. I had a small pocketbook and a couple of PDFs circulating in the emails.Most of the rules normally are hearsay from our elders to us. As my friend suggested, today since I was relatively free, just thought I would update it as bullet points, so that future Ayyappa Swamis  can immensely benefit from the same.While my pocket books are in Tamil, I am attempting to compile the same in English. Should you find discrepancies, share your thoughts and observations as comments.Most of the rules and observationary regulations are purely for our own control and development -- to streamline our day-to-day chores.All round the work time, keep your mind only focused on the Lord. Even the work you do is being instrumented by the Lord. Dedicate the same to the Lord.  Perhaps, Bh…

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

There was one Swami (Karthik) who had expressed a bit of dejection since on a particular day, he could not wake up early and he was feeling a bit down as expressed over here. As far as my little information goes, I think, our guruswami's have taken these issues into consideration and the Arindhum Ariyamalum sloka that we recite accomodates for all these mistakes that are committed with and without our knowledge.

I searched a while to give this sloka lyric to Swami but since I could'nt get it, I have typed it myself in a Word document using a Ayyappa picture and Unicode Tamil and captured as JPG using Irfanview. I would like to share the same with other readers as well.

Om. Arindhum Ariyalum Therindhum Theriyalum
Naangal Seitha Sagala Kutrangalaiyum
Poruthu, Kathu Rakshithu Arul Puriya Vendum
Sathiyamay Ponnu Pathinettam Padi mael Vaazhum
Kasi Rameswaram Adakki Aalum
Om Hari Hara Sudhan, Ananda Siddhan Ayyan, Ayyappa
Swamiyae Saranam Ayyappa.
