Monika has tagged me! And yup, this is the first tag on this blog! What’s more it’s about books and reading! So without much ado, here we go ๐Ÿ˜€

Favorite childhood book?

The Faraway Tree series by Enid Blyton!

What are you reading right now?

Gulliver’s Travels. Am on a mission to read as many classics as possible. One they are cheap and two they are awesome!

Bad book habit?

Er..is lying down on the bed and reading a bad habit? Well that’s how I read ๐Ÿ˜€

Do you have an e-reader?

Thought about it, but it isn’t too cost effective is it? And I love the feel of books.

Do you prefer to read one book at a time or several atย once?

One book at a time. Very very rarely, do I read more than one at a time. This is because I like to be ‘under the spell’ of a book. Reading too many things leaves me confused.

Have your reading habits changed since starting a blog?

Yes. I push myself to read more so that I can write reviews ๐Ÿ™‚

Least favorite book you read this year (so far)?

I drop the book if I don’t like it, so can’t say read completely. But yes, didn’t like Theodore Boone much, haven’t finished it, don’t think I will either.

And oh! I forgot Two States! Grr…..no comments.

Favorite book youโ€™ve read this year?

Every book I have reviewed here. If I have to pick one, will say Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse, changed my thinking.

How often do you read out of your comfort zone?

Don’t really have a comfort zone. Like reading all sort of books, expect academic. So, if you take academic to be aย genre, then, I do read out of my comfort zone ๐Ÿ˜‰ How often? When ever I have exams ๐Ÿ™‚

What is your reading comfort zone?

As mentioned above, anything except academic. But would love to read more Sci-fi. Not much of a sci-fi fan.

Can you read on the bus?

I don’t usually go by bus or other public transport. But if I do, prefer observing people and watching outside the window.

Favorite place to read?

My bed.

What is your policy on book lending?

I don’t usually lend. None of friends are great readers and well if I were to lend- no dogears, no writing on pages and you should take care of it like a kohinoor(the diamond I mean ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

Do you ever dog-ear books?

๐Ÿ˜ :O Do you? If you do, don’t talk to me ๐Ÿ˜

Do you ever write in the margins of your books?

No way!

Not even with text books?

Used to in school textbooks. Boy, they were specimens. Used to sketch, write, scribble etc. Pity, I don’t have any of ’em to show people ๐Ÿ˜‰

What is your favorite language to read in?

English. Am very slow at reading Tamil(after 10 years of learning the language). But hope I can read books in tamil and sanskrit one day.

What makes you love a book?

Every book is a journey. At the end of it, you are better person.

What will inspire you to recommend a book?

I recommend most books which I read. The reason being that each and every book I read has an influence on me. I’m very picky in choosing what I read, so most of them are worth it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Favorite genre?

None isย particular. Will say everything expect Sci-fi andย Biographiesย and Autobiographies. That said, Jules Verne is one of my all time favourites.

Genre you rarely read (but wish you did?)


Favorite biography?

I don’t read biographies or autobiographies. Gave Mein Kampf a shot, but couldn’t finish it.

Have you ever read a self-help book?

Gone through a few, but don’t like them. They bore me.

Most inspirational book youโ€™ve read this year (fiction or non-fiction)?

Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse – you can read the review here .

Favorite reading snack?

I don’t eat while reading a book.

Name a case in which hype ruined your reading experience.

Don’t pick up books just because it is hyped. But well Two States! Alright, it was funny, entertaining etc, but the author surely is racist.

How often do you agree with critics about a book?

Er..I don’t really care. I don’t read critical reviews and analysis. I judge for myself. So no clue what the critics think.

How do you feel about giving bad/negative reviews?

I don’t write negative reviews. If I don’t like the book, I won’t review it.

If you could read in a foreign language, which language would you chose?

Ancient Latin? Or Arabic/Urdu.

Most intimidating book youโ€™ve ever read?

Not really been intimidated by anything.

Most intimidating book youโ€™re too nervous to begin?

Er..? Think I’m three years away fromย receivingย ย my CA final material ๐Ÿ˜‰

Favorite Poet?


Favorite fictional character?

There are a few. As a kid my favourite was Frederick Algernon Trotteville aka. Fatty. Poriot, Siddhartha, Sherlock Holmes, Peter Pan, Harry Potter etc

Favorite fictional villain?

Lord Voldemort. Though the movies made him look one of those animals they cook in Master Chef.

Books Iโ€™m most likely to bring on vacation?

Whatever I’m reading at the moment.

The longest Iโ€™ve gone without reading.

The day I was born to the day I learnt to read properly?

Name a book that you could/would not finish.

Mienย Kampf.

What distracts you easily when youโ€™re reading?

Sleep. Tend to read till I drop like a log.

Favorite film adaptation of a novel?

Around the world in 80 days. Jackie Chan!

Most disappointing film adaptation?

Harry Potter.ย Commercialised.

The most money Iโ€™ve ever spent in the bookstore at one time?

Tend to spend about 1K everytime I go to buy books.

How often do you skim a book before reading it?

Always. Unless of course, it happens to be a book which I have read about/have read extracts of.

What would cause you to stop reading a book half-way through?


Do you like to keep your books organized?

Guess so.

Do you prefer to keep books or give them away once youโ€™ve read them?

Keep them. Want to make a library ๐Ÿ˜‰

Are there any books youโ€™ve been avoiding?

Er..auditing? Infotech? ย But have an exam next week though, so started (trying) to study.

Name a book that made you angry.

Two States- Racist.

A book you didnโ€™t expect to like but did?

Bala takes the Plunge by Melvin Durai.

A book that you expected to like but didnโ€™t?


Favorite guilt-free, pleasure reading?

Calvin! I usually don’t reread, but Calvin!

Books I love or โ€œthe ones I can read again and again and again andโ€ฆ..โ€

As I said, I don’t reread anything.

November 23, 2009 § 16 Comments

After what seems like an eternity, a tag has come my way at last! ๐Ÿ˜€ This one is from Nita ๐Ÿ™‚ It is the wish list tag ๐Ÿ™‚

I am debating whether I should do this one seriously or to do a fun one, but an amalgam should be better? ๐Ÿ˜›

1) Write, write and keep writing. And not just poetry, I want to try some fiction/ prose too. I have been planning to start writing books for long, have the stories in mind, but well, prose demands things which poetry doesn’t.ย And yes I have an idea for a drama script too. The idea, the substance everything clear, but then, exams in 5 months- ugh!

It is not just about getting published or something. For a while, I did think that trying to get published was a good goal, but then realized that it was quite futile. Every time I pick up the pen/sit in front of the screen to write, it is about me. It is a journey, into myself and that is what is important.

2) Act. I love acting. And I don’t mind playing parts which others might not be willing to do. I think this is something that every writer will like to do. When you can construct characters, you can play them as well. As I said, I want to write that script and hopefully I am able to do it ๐Ÿ™‚


i)CA:- ย That’s what I am doing right now. The course demands the use of your head, so it is not at all bad. Only thing though, I need to start studying more ๐Ÿ˜›

ii) Economics:- This is a subject which has alwaysย intrigued me. One reason might be that, the subject doesn’t demand much “studying” as such, it is based on understanding. After I finish CA I might be doing something related to economics(hopefully).

4)ย Societalย goals:- I believe education is the key. Education as in everything and anything that helps nurture a person(In this respect, blogging I will say has played a part in my education). So I intend to do something in those lines, maybe start an education institution.

5) Travelling and photography:- This is something which I want to do, explore the world. Of course it will help if I can someone who is willing to travel along with me ๐Ÿ˜‰ I love taking photos( does it really matter how good or bad I really am ๐Ÿ˜› ) ,so yes hopefully I can shoot something worth while.

6) Designing:- Maybe not myย naturalย forte, but then again, I like trying to do creative things ๐Ÿ™‚ SO hopefully I can get to do some serious designing.

7) Music:- Well want to concentrate more on violin and tabla ๐Ÿ˜› Music is magic. Whether you listen or play, it does take you on a wonderful ride ๐Ÿ™‚

8)ย Nothing:- Discover how people can do “nothing” and from there learn more about the human mind ๐Ÿ˜›

9) Languages:- I want to learn Sanskrit and Latin ๐Ÿ™‚ These two because, I want to read for myself, how our ancestors thought. ย Much has beenย derivedย from what’s written in these twoย languages and I would like to read and find out for myself ๐Ÿ™‚

10) Football:- This is something which very dear to me, Second only to writing. The game’s got something about it. Who knows maybe I can own a team in the future? ๐Ÿ˜›

11) Carpe Diem:- Of all the above thing, this is the one. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyway hopefully the future holds something good ๐Ÿ™‚ I never write down my ambitions, goals etc, some how hate seeing them on paper. These things form a very small fraction of what I want to do. But thenย achievingย  is not merely having the desire, but then having the ability toย fulfilย your desires.

I like to think that the future is going to hold what I want it to hold. And yes, Iย avoided, talking about love, ratherย deliberately ๐Ÿ˜‰ ย We will see ๐Ÿ™‚ And now I pass on this tag to:-

1) Swathi

2) Fruity

this is 25.

March 18, 2009 § 20 Comments

Reema tagged me to write 25 random things,so well this is 25!ย 

1) I wrote this post on the eve of my economics exam,now I have forgotten what I had thought out

2) I like to try to do everything with my left. In this respect I now prefer to use my left in footie and am almost as good with my left as I am with my right in Table tennis.The only thing tough is writing with my left.

3) I dream a lot. And I have in my dreams been in movies,become a top biz man ,played for all the top football clubs and published a hell a lot of books and been the hero.It is worth mentioning all these things till date have remained as dreams. Oh! and talking of dreams,this post crosses my mind.

4) I love to try and make inanimate things alive.Some how it seems nice to have something which is not prejudiced to talk to.

5) I can be in a dream land for a long time, in this case the real world and that world almost merge.I sort of float around and to many people around start acting in a very attached,detached way…

6) I hate to read anything twice. And so I never study for my exams.I just start sleeping or well start doing something else,like blogging ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

7) I am a true cancerian,while I can take any amount of nonsense,some times,I get damn emotional.

8) For me the things which I feel are virtues,are something I will not give up,no matter what.You can call me tenacious or arrogant.

9) If I respect someone,I genuinely respect them.If I don’t ,I don’t really care who they are and if I have little tolerance towards certain people…

10) I love to watch football,especially flowing,attacking football.

11) It doesn’t matter what people tell me,I believe everything in this world is connected,that is why we have so called miracles,things act a certain way because they are all linked and there have been enough incidents to prove me right.

12) YU! means a lot to me. But not many of its members seem to care. I try to tell myself not to conclude ,that people will be people but I am tempted to.( If you do really care,wake up! Don’t tell me you can’t find anything to write or comment!! ) { strictly meant for YU! members,but then most of them don’t read my blog anyway ๐Ÿ˜› }ย 

13) Someone pointed out a while back,that this blog has more women/girl readers.And I have always wondered why ๐Ÿ˜›ย 

14) I can be very very irritating and well my class mates and friends can vouch for it .

15) Sometimes I become a 5 year old.And when I am in that state,like in my dreams,the world seems all fine and azure.

16) I cried in front of my whole class in 10th,I was that sensitive.But then that was the year a lot changed for me. I started writing poetry ,it was a turning point in my life.ย 

17) It really doesn’t matter who you are and what you do,all that matters is that you use your senses and enjoy the world.I hate the world for making things complicated.

18) When I am damn happy or damn sad,I ask myself ” What the hell are you doing here anyway? ” and also ” what is all this? ”ย 

19) I like to be special to people. And there are lot of people who are special to me.But some how many of them don’t ย seem stick around.

20) I have seen a ghost as a kid and no I was not dreaming ,I still remember it.

21) I hate smokers . And I don’t care what the cost is,I either walk out or tell the person not to smoke around me.

22) Till date I have showed all those people who belittled me what I am made up of but it is not yet done,I wish and I hope and I will.

23) I have been blogging for almost 3 years now.Many have come and many have went but I learnt the differences between people and I have also noticed how people who blog have changed.

24) I don’t really care what “people” think about what I write. My poetry is my way of telling myself things.I post it here,because I feel there are people out there,who may like to read it.

25) And my blog means a lot to me.If not for poetry and this place,I don’t know,where my self confidence and belief would be.Thank you all!

And for once I ย am not tagging anyone ๐Ÿ˜‰ย 

P.S:- Sorry for making this so serious. I want to play the joker ,I so badly want to!

The smiley tag

March 4, 2009 § 28 Comments

๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

So,this is it.This is my very own tag…after all I am the smileyananda..er…smiley man ๐Ÿ˜€

The objective:- To make people smile.When you saw the smiles above ,I am sure you started smiling too.That is the whole idea of this tag,to make others smile/laugh. I don’t need to tell you all about the good effects of a smile,but a smile always helps you get out of lows and makes you feel great.So this tag shall spread the smile,in all the blogs.At least this way for once all the blogs shall be smiling and looking bright and happy at the same time.Let us for one post forget all the nonsense in the world and just spread the smile.


On my face I have a smile,
IT is a sign of the joy of being alive.
A smile upon my face,
And at it you gaze
and now you have it on your face.

This happiness is life,
Forever we can smile,
Never let sadness become ripe,
Put a smile upon your face,
And grace through the days,
Gloom is all haste and waste,
Never let the smile run away,
Today is happiness’ day.

On my face I have a smile,
IT is a sign of the joy of being alive.
A smile upon my face,
And at it you gaze
and now you have it on your face.


So all you have to do is post some funny pics/write something which will make people smile and/or laugh. And ya you have to begin the post with a line of smileys like how I have done ๐Ÿ˜€ย 

So before I do my post,let me tag :-

Solilo ( a humorous soliloquay? )ย 

Nimmy(someone provoke us to smile now ๐Ÿ˜€ )

From photoshopped


February 16, 2009 § 18 Comments

Destionation Infinityย ย has tagged me! The tag’s name is “Slow Melodious and Soulfulย Songs“.

Music is a form of expression. And to us the work of an artist is a way to relate to the ultimatum within us. Now the problem with this tag is,I do not know how I would be able to stop myself once I have began.

From M.S.Subhalakshmi to Pink Floyd and ARR to Metallica,I love so many songs.And add to that the classical wizards of symphonies and suits and an ย opus ordinates intself of an extremely high allegro!ย 

But let me start with Tamil songs,as DI asked me to do ๐Ÿ™‚ Though tamil is my mother tongue,one major problem is that now days the tamil me and my friends speak,has a lot of English,in fact I can talk tamil only with a few people,to others I switch back to english after a sentence.but luckily for me I can ask my grand parents and parents the meaning of words.

And then then there are the film songs,well I am not really a filmy person.Well let me list them,enough of red-hearing ๐Ÿ˜›ย 

-Kurai Ondrum Illaiย 


– Bhaja Govindam

– Bethoveen symphony 9

-four seasons by vivaldi

-Tchaikovsky, Piano Concerto No. 1


Now those are my top 5 ๐Ÿ™‚ Of course i would say entire collection of Tchaikovasky(should be able to spell him soon without a mistake ๐Ÿ˜› ) and Bethoveen..I like the way the hit the right high notes.The first two songs have a lot of emotional value to me

Let me choose a few from movies ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

-Masakali( ya ya ya ๐Ÿ˜‰ ย )

-Katrinilae mozhi

-Kalai matrum kandal from Dashavataram

-All the songs from Jodha Akbar

-Slum Dog millionaire songs(seriously people it is guuuud!)

-I admit most of ARR’s songs ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

Forgot a lot of songs ๐Ÿ˜› But I usually like songs with good lyrics..

And I should say most of Floyds and Guilmore’s songs. I should also add flipsyde’s songs( a few spun,flipsyde,someday etc)..But they aren’t really slow but soulful when you need to cover your burns ๐Ÿ˜‰ย 

It also depends on my mood I guess,But I mostly listen to Tchiakovsky…I started this post with the aim of listing a lot of songs but as I linked the videos i got into the songs and have forgotten the list ๐Ÿ˜›ย 


Anyway Now I tag:-

rambodoc ( yes music for the body and soul doc,please! ๐Ÿ˜› )ย 


Meenu(first one i am passing on to you?)ย 


Paul(we never get to hear about music from you ๐Ÿ™‚ )

Vimal( Enjoy !)ย
