Out of the blue, I felt like blogging.. Be carepul.. Ungalathaan sonnen.. (Statutory warning) Ippo laam cyber crime ku arrest laam panraanga.. Bada bejaaraa keedhu..
September was supposed to be crazy.. Auditors are supposed to say that.. Adhukkaaga naan summa scene laam poda mudiyadhu.. It was a pretty normal month.. Maybe alerting clients very early, helped..
One majorly exciting event after Cogzidel’s 4th Anniversary was the movie launch of ‘Nalanum Nandhiniyum’.. My best friend is the music director and therefore, ‘yours truly’ was invited.. Mr.K.Balachandar had come and vaazhthified the young team.. We all had super duper fun.. Enga thala ore interviews.. All of us were proud and were honestly waiting for something like this to happen.. Worth the wait.. Some of the moments……
Adhu mudinjudhaa.. Apparom! Vaijayanthi and I met far more frequently than we have ever met in our 8 years of friendship… She was diligently helping me out in finalising a venue for my pre-wedding party.. We went to a few venues and enquired.. All these drives were precious.. Madam appointment kedaikkardhe periya vishayam (aei no bad words).. And for the people who do not know, Tommy Boy is the official nick name for Madam Vaijayanthi, Her Excellency.. If you all thought it referred to a boy, I am sorry, cant help it..
Despite her awesomely busy and erratic schedule, she herself kept calling me for all these hotel visits.. Most times she used to drive.. Profession, business, courtship, marriage, friendship, college nu evlo evlo we spoke.. (no evil eye putting!!) THE BEST!!
Apparam final a we chose the venue.. Our very own Courtyard Marriot.. I keep going there for business meetings.. For once, it was an informal gathering of friends, colleagues and well wishers.. Sujatha helped a great deal in getting this organised.. Infact she herself initiated it even without me asking her.. One more busy bee who took time off for me.. She wont read this, I am sure..
Had invited around 25 people and almost all turned up!! Was awesome fun with games, laughter, food and NO booze (for which some are still karicchi kottifying me).. Again, I should thank, Bala Sir, Anand Sir, Ravi Sir, Sundar Sir, Kaviraj Sir, Karthik Sir, Ramanan Sir, Ashwath, Jai, Asha, Srinidhi, Sowmya, Sriram, Purush, Harsh, Haresh, Raghavendar, Prabhu, Vikram and Jakan (laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaast entrant).. Most importantly, Vaijayanthi and Sujatha.. And yeah, my would-be better half Arun..
Adhu mudinjudhaa.. Apparam the usual BNI meetings, invite giving and all that..
Now for the actual stuff on the blog topic..
I think it has been over 15 years since I had been to the beach.. Are you thinking ‘pathetic’?? Think think.. Thappe illa.. One fine holiday, tommy boy and me were bored.. She wanted to go shopping.. Seri nu we kelambified.. Her favourite Witco in T.Nagar went missing.. This is the, “Dei inga irundha kenara kaanam” kinda situation.. Madam ore mourning.. Apparam Just Dial ku phone panni innoru Witco address vaangi, we went and bought handbags for her.. Enakku onnu vaangi tharanumnu she was adampudichifying.. I was not in a very hand bag mood, but got one..
Then we did some window shopping in one mokka exhibition.. Stuff are priced for foreigners nu I think.. 2 aaaayiram, 2 aaayiram.. We only should say pimbilikkipilaapi and come.. We did just that..
Got a couple of music CDs.. Yet to listen to them.. Car has gone for service.. Missing it..
Apparam we decided we will go to the beach because someone wanted to have molaga bajji oh so badly.. These were her exact words, “Besant Nagar beach nallaarukkum, aana molaga bajji kedaikkaadhu”.. And there were many more statements that revolved around molaga bajji.. Then she said something about Santhome Beach.. When we landed at Marina, I ask “Idhaan Santhome Beach a?”.. She gave me one look and said, “This is Marina”.. I think I heard her teeth go ‘nara nara nara’..
And then when she realised that I had been in this city for like 27 years and have not really seen it, she said, “I wish I had known before” :-)
The moment she saw molaga bajji, she disappeared.. Was searching for her for a while and then saw her standing right next to the kadaai.. Vittaa kaiiya kadaaila vittu andha bajji eduthu saaptruppaa.. Bajji sudra aaya asingama thittume nu she kept quiet.. The moment she had the plate in her hand, oooooooo nu mazha.. Molaga bajji a kaapaathanume nu we ran to the car.. I am forbidden to eat outside.. So just had a bite.. She challenged that I cant resist after a bite.. Heh.. Naangalaam ennikki saapadradhukku aasa patrukom? Gave it back after a bite.. But it was truly awesome..
Then we stood at the beach side for a long time.. Took some photos.. Super breeze.. I wanted to stand there like forever.. I wanted to check out the new Pothys on GN Chetty Road..
She succeeded in parking at a lane after crossing 3 fully packed lanes.. We walked back to the store.. The moment I entered, I felt as if I was entering Thirupathi.. Nejamaa.. Tholanji ponaa kooda kandupudikka rendu naal aagum.. My God how people shop.. It was raining so bloody madly and people were least bothered.. 12 floors, all floors having escalators and different themed lighting.. Oru podavaya eduthuttu varathukulla, adangappaa… Nice collection, though.. Husbands laam gaali.. Soli mudinjudum.. Saw a lot of them with kannathula kai.. Paavam..
