Baana Kaaththadi -- A film packed with morals

Baana Kaaththadi -- A film packed with morals

I was watching the movie Baana Kaathadi today which was starred by Atharva (debut), son of (Late) Murali, the famous Kollywood actor. Though at the broad view it resembles a movie without a deeper story line on the contrary it is otherwise. A few of the observations I would like to share it under:

The way the observations and morals mentioned here might be little bitter or rather more bitter than a bitterguard. Nevertheless let me also share that a bitter-guard is good for health and elixirs were (are) never sweeter either.

  1. Not to judge the people immediately on the first sight. This is applicable to our female fraternity very much. They are carried over by infatuation with false and fake personality who are then driven upto and beyond carrying or miscarriages and sometimes that makes them to succumb to and people need to carry them to their eternal rest place.
  2. The cops as usual demonstrate their callousness in just filling up their FIR books with fake records leaving the criminals high and open in the air.
  3. The cops shoulder, shelter and support criminals and crime to the most possible and greatest extent and in the process of demonstrating the mean and baseless misdemeanor they attempt to strengthen their wallet. We did recently see what the cops normally resort to over here.
  4. When one supports or endorses evil without nipping in the bud that is sure to eliminate its host too. This is succinctly evident from the climax of the movie.
The pluses of the movie is for sure Samantha. Unlike other movies where heroines are shown as heroins only to seduce the hero (and thus the viewers), Samantha demonstrates a great true love. She repents for her misjudgement and goes to the extreme extent of convincing everyone on the truth.  

Late Murali, father of Atharva does make a guest appearance in the movie to congratulate him on his birthday on a visitor's cap. He introduces himself as a final year MBBS student. I believe, every movie that he has acted in his left has bestowed on him the student's cap. Is he trying to express the thought that art is long and life is short?

The songs are lovely to the extent of sprucing up the movie without too much empty decorations.  Baana Kaathadi, in our view, ranks 'This week's excellent movie'. It is also a tribute to Late Murali for shaping his son and as an able actor. The most moving thing is that Murali's first film and last film and his son's first film is from the house of Satyajyoti films. May his soul rest in peace.

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.

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…
