THE END OF THE SHORTEST MONTH
28TH FEB;the shortest month ends tonight.a lot to remember and a lot to forget...........i became an active blogger this month.[last october during navrathri days i had started my hobby as a blogger,but didn't continue.caught with laziness,lack of inspiration[my mazakali kept on telling.....................still,],hectic office work.anyways iam happy to be a member of the bloggers' long list.
the day began with a short chat with kishan.morning was pleasant and there was celebration of national science day.'meet the scientists' was presented.but i enjoyed my last year's presentation on water and water sources and the reaction of villagers to the much awaited rain.the moments of pride to write the script and direct 70 characters.it was a visual treat with science,music and dance.
with heartfelt gratitude to vanitha-jan-for introducing manu to the world and he inspired me unknowingly to write again . the humorous style tickled my laughter bones.an excellent writer,who has to reach greater heights.good luck,manu.
everyone wants to make a good first impression.may be we struggle for attention n popularity.i drew line in between many friendships.someone who wanted to read my posts very badly never knows,iam a blogger,now.[but i keep a track of his updates]. for once in life time i want to prove,iam the strong silent type.
i believe,i could communicate some of my deepest feelings with my readers.while writing, i was tracking down a few childhood memories.the village ,the temples,the nalukettu,our kalari,the spacious kulam,pambin kavu,mundiyan thara,kolan mangoes,sharkara manga,kumkumapookal, and the joint family.the long walks to little flower convent school and later to the college.and now the short cut through punnathoor kovilakam has changed into aana thavalm and one gets to see more than sixty elephants.[the popular movie,oru vadakan veera gadha was shot here].it's a popular tourist spot now.in the evenings me and nanda taking brisk steps to catch up with amma who was the respected teacher of the neighbouring school.the beautiful life with no tensions and stress.amma,i cherish those walks back home with u.
the summer vacations in andathode,in achan's three storeyed mansion and proudly we used to say,kamala das ,is our neighbour in punnayoorkulam.[felt so sad to see her the other day on tv channel.age has gripped her and she was struggling to talk.........]the beautiful house overlooked into fields and small ponds in between.i saw ducks for the first time there.these memories triggered feelings of affectionate amusement.the bed time stories achamma used to tell us,how can we forget?
guys,be honest,be kind,look around,without uttering the words,the message can get through........
thanks my unknown friend, who spends time in the wee hours of the morning to send beautiful morning greetings.
the other day we attended the birthday bash of little rohan.he turned one year and the cake was cut at his time of birth-8.10.that was a novel idea.the venue was zeebop at utorda beach.a beautiful beach and even after along stay, i hadn't been to this wonderful sea shore.there was live music,drinks and games.the b'day boy,his dad and many guests were in red wear.
i have to set new goals in the forth coming month and i fear i won't be able to write more posts often.only after the goals are reached,i can ease up.satisfaction has to be found in the search.then i can celebrate.i can tell myself,''iam on my way.it feels great.''
the dust has settled and the afternoon slipped towards evening.i feel far away, the jasmine is blooming for me.
it took me a long time,but i learned that life doesn't come with a plan.to some extent,the pages are blank.we may have a rough outline of where we are going ,but
we won't get there without making some tough decisions.
iam tired. needs to get refreshed.how much anu loves to hear,''i'll be there''.[but,i have to learn to listen].i have to slow down.
thanks for the one line message .it did make a differene to the evening.
a good-bye signals a change and change is rarely easy-sometimes it breaks our hearts.any time can be a good bye time.
and to u,
mumkin nahi shyad kisi ko samajh pana,
samjhe bina kya kisi se dil lagana..........

IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT..................
It's a lonely night.........spending a few minutes in the balcony looking into the beautiful harbour,the sea with the reflected light and the star studded sky......mind gets refreshed.it was an ordinary day.as usual ,an unknown friend sends the good morning greetings sincerely and i never acknowledge his kind gesture.may be,i don't want to build any more bonds. thanks a lot for taking time for me to send those beautiful lines.........
friend,i had read those offline messages but was not in a mood to reply.[you are such a good friend,but at times,i behave this way].morning when you spend time to browse through my posts,u will find the answer.u must be wondering where did i vanish?or why not in touch since days.i don't have an answer. it happens.for no reasons u feel low.getting the negative emotions under control is very difficult.the bright level of self esteem disappears.one tends to get upset.human nature is really strange.
i think,i have to put out set backs in an imaginary envelope labelled ''waste of time'' and brushing off negative people and put them under the category,''toxic''.how can i permit someone to take me for granted? hey,stop that.
this happens.this is a passing phase.when we focus on another person's story,we overcome our internal distractions.when people get the opportunity to speak and be respectafully heard,it gives them a feeling of empowerment.
during these late hours of the night,i think of the fresh jasmine,evergreen trees in the mountains,roses in the garden and my amma and my home.i'm eagerly waiting for this summer to catch the first konkan railway to reach my hometown.my stress buzzer,the only way to get my heart light and mind peaceful.
the large compound,the nagakkavu,the tall tamarind trees,the swarna malaripookal,the mangoes and jasmines.looking forward to capture and cherish the childhood memories................wanna talk to me?like the carefree child ,i spend the days with amma and she teaches me how to forgive to feel better.it's difficult,i know.but,i try.my attidute wears a new look.at guruvayoor temple,i meet my school mates.they bring back the good old days. darshan of unnikannan gives me relief and satisfaction.
we meet most of our classmates in temples].last time i was introduced to pushpam's son at varkey's.she was my close friend of 'little flower'and after many years we could talk to each other on phone.
when we cousins and friends walk down home,after the classes,the group of boys meet you regularly and when they come closer,the dark short guy,utters,''zindabad''.that was a code word for being the leader of a procession.and one enjoys the special recognition and identifies the glow in the eyes.later he reached the middle east and later settled down in the nearby village.when someone points out his huge bunglow,u can't help giving a smile.
we always carry the lighter moments of life.
good morning!have a great day ahead............[it's morning now....
and to u,
rahi baat aank mein aansuon ki...........,
kissie ke dard ko apana samjhna
har kissi ke bas ki baat nahim
the simple unforgettable teen experiences.more in the later post.
i don't want to let go all those sources of inspiration.they give me strength..

May Lord Shiva Bless One And All..................
woke up early morning. after the daily routine,visited Khandeswar temple and Ayyappa Temple.there was a long queue at Shiva Temple.devotees were doing palabhishekam on SHIVLINGA on their own. the temple is spacious and HANUMAN n DEVI upaprathishta.
and our own AYYAPPA TEMPLE.we feel so nice,refreshing and relieved after having darshan of KALIYUGA VARADAN.very spacious surroundings and coconut trees and acronut trees around.it's the ultimate destination for thousands of devotees.
today being shankar's birthday , a small sadya was prepared.pondered upon the last year's grand b'day celebration at home.really nice to hold celebrations with one's own people around.
down the meory lane,
near the mundikan thara[the small pambin kavu],the dried cowdung balls will be lit on the previous night of SHIV RATHRI.after two three days,when we look,we get bhasmam.
a visit to MAMMIYOOR temple and then to GURUVAYOOR temple.and we walk the distance within half an hour.we really struggled to be awake the whole night.
hearty congrats to our great a.r rehman ,rasool and gulzar.as the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles reverberates with the sweeping strains of JAI HO,a.r.rehman was poised to receive an OSCAR.........his tribute to his great father........now let's say,''INDIA SHINING''.A GLOBAL ACCLAIM at last.........
Now we,the educated keralites are pampering rasool........he is our own friend in the neighbourhood.media are giving maximum coverage to the heros......looking forward to his return to his vilage and a red carpet welcome awaits.....we must appreciate the hard earned success.it's truly said,''there's no short cut to success''.
today is the carnival of this port town.loud music and the floats fill the streets.
an early call from redwood city brightened up the day and later a call from niketha.a sincere n loving friend in mumbai .her words are from heart and hardly one gets a friend like her.she takes time to make a call on special days.and i must tell u,even if my folks forget my b'day,she won't.that gesture makes me happy and feel great.are there true friends in this world?
when niketha was here ,she always kept in touch with us.when her hubby changed the job,i lost the close friend's presence.but the equation between us has not changed.we make our presence felt through mails and phone calls.
i will not ask you,why you didn't keep up your promise.it's time and let time remind you what you should have done.
this world may be wicked.but i like to see the positive side.
we all feel ,we run out of time.still,if managed properly,one can find that extra hour to the needy.
the luxurious two days holidays end here and from now on, literally will be on my toes.
happy and energetic week to one and all.....
and to u,
mehsoos karne ki koshish tu kijiye...........
door hotey hue bhi pass nazar aayenga................

THE FLIP SIDE OF DISAPPOINTMENT...........
This post is about loretta d'souza,my local friend.we had lunch at annapurna to toast her new life.her life was a mess out of ignorance and immaturity.she happened to be my colleague for a short period and i liked her instantly for her sincerity.
she was a bundle of nerves.now she has realisedthat making mistakes and learning from them are an important part of life.to err is human,but you're innocent unless you choose to be guilty.
when i told ഹേര് that i'm എ blogger now,she wanted me to write about her.
the guy who took away the beautiful years of her life is a person from our 'GOD'S OWN COUNTRY'.he was cheating her for his safe and secure future.no more comments,as he is out of her life.
a typical local with an unusual sense of honesty in her relations.morning i received a phone call from her.she was happy and confessed that she didn't settle for a man who neglected her.''i'm grateful to GOD.now i know how to draw my bottom line for a relationship.''the opportunity to learn and grow.loretta wants me to tell u she is so happy now,very positive.yoga and work keep her busy.
all of us withstand our share of disappointment in life.we get tired of doing things in the hard way.friendliness is so rare nowadays.people talk to u only when tehy need something and that's a difficult habit to break.
i look at the stories of people who inspire me.if they can overcome the difficult situations,let me also give a try.and,miracles always happen.unknown hands stretch out to me for friendship with a yellow rose.[my little star takes care of me].
i remember the better post offered to me;it had everything i wanted.:excitement,prestige and a heavy salary increase.but then some administartive problems and some political pressure;it remained at a stand still.
today,iam grateful to the SUPER POWER!!!time proved so.i've got a tremendous boost to my self-confidence.
we can make the world abetter place to live in by just saying hello.we feel lighter and more connected and we have abeter sense of well being.
one more interesting thing-saying hello to yourself each morning in the mirror recognizes the one person who needs it most.
had a nice chat with mazakkali,leena and bros.the day w as kool with mails from kishan n mahesh.
the photos of the three musketeers[courtesy-malini] at universal studio are simply rocking!!!!!

poocho na ppocho mujhe kya hua hai...........

THE NIGHT HAD A CHARM.........
''Anu,enough of carnival,write something else''..............
fine,here comes the 'touch me not feelings.........''
it was the grand birthday bash of little awdaith-his first birthday party at Lapaz gardens....well decorated hall,the loud music,the hot and soft drinks,the delicious food,the games and the wonderful crowd.........i was attending a party after along time......i felt nice.
genviv organised the games so well and i joined her and later participated too....it was fun.
to my surprise neha and sunil had come from the neighbouring town.after along time i was meeting them.we were so happy and settled down with drinks to share the recent happenings of lives.
hardly we find like minded people.someone far away promises me a close friendship with honest feelings and it could be the asset in later life...[the unexpected bonus one receives ........]''for the friendship of two,the patience of one is required''.so,friend,are you patient enough to tolerate this impatient hotpot?
a few sips of red wine had been enough for her;but sunil had clearly had a couple of glasses more than was good for him.still he was steady to shake aleg with each and everyone to the loud music played.they are a loving couple who enjoy life in full spirits.they are like newly married couple and the love is in the air around them.always they have a lot more to say...........a lucky couple,made for each other.they spread happiness and cheer around.just a matter of efforts to understand each other and then the love flows.........
and he has promised her a villa at the hill station that keeps the ocean company.''wow''..........
more than two mature adults,they behaved like teenagers.she wore a red top and tight jeans.red is back on the colour charts.Talk festive and the first colour everyone wants is red.
they are set to enjoy the traditional carnival dance FAT FAT SATURDAY at varca with hottest bands in attendance.the special attraction is chunkey pandey from bollywood.
the childhood memories flashed across my mind when i watched little adwaith cut the cake.
on that auspicious day,amma wakes me up early and i used to rush to the huge tank to have a dip in the cold water.oh my!the beautiful tank with the steps in galore and tiled roof..........the beautiful tank with kewada [kaitha poov]plants all around and when the kewada flowers bloom,the snakes come out of the holes.........the enchanting smell and the elders kept these flowers in mundupetty.the fragrance spreads[when perfumes were not heard about].
after having a bath,dressed up in new clothes and prayers in machil [pooja room], having a temple darshan of kavvetil bhagavathy.[one of the hundred and eight devi temples of kerala].lighting lamp in kalari is a must.pinne,kannane kanuvan guruvayoorampalathilekku.a delicious sadya awaits for noon.sitting on the palaka, turning to east in vadikkini, i enjoyed my birthdays to the most.the joint family and my siblings,we five and my beloved parents,the perfect family.
i miss u,amma as my birthday is coming up.[i feel like taking a long break and running away from this hectic routine of office..........]
and lately i received a huge gift packet by courier.there was warning on the pack-''kaanch ka saaman''.wondering what could be the thing,i was taken aback to see the most beautiful weighing machine made of glass.a surprise gift from kishan..and now,u tell me,how can i stand on a weighing machine with a glass top even though it's written,it will stand 150kg?am i collecting weighing machines?chechie dearest had already sent one.
hey,by the way the long wish list is available with me.next time,if you want to give me a surprise and to make sure it,is pleasant,
i will be sending you a personal mail.[jokes,apart,iam really touched,kishan,so thoughtful u are........how'z life in redwood city?]
except me, all are bothered about my figure.and when asked,കിഷന്'scomment''-after your work out on tread mill,u check ur weight daily''.so,what should i do?one leg on one machine and the other on the new one?and daily u expect me to reduce a kilo?are u kidding?
i know,folks,it's now clean up time.i must find an answer to that bulk gained around my waist.before next may,for GOD'S sake,don't ask me by how much i have reduced.[and can u believe,years before, amma was complaining,''anu,ur bones can be seen.please eat well and put on weight and amma didn't realise,later, her anu never stopped putting on weight..........]
by the way,i get comments recently,''anu,u have reduced,what is the secret?dieting?long walks?''iam so happy at the lavish complements and my day is made.[ooph!my!me and dieting and forget the long walks-that twenty minutes walk in the office corridors make me sweat..................]
will anyone believe chechie,if i tell, we did the alarippu together in little flower convent school for mother superior's birthday?[feast]and you are still busy with thiruvathirakkali and kolkali in sree nagar colony and i joined shaking a leg on the dance floors here.[weight didn't matter for that, when the music get into the veins......]
and i must tell you,
the night had a charm that's hard to ignore.............any guesses?
and to you,
kyun pyar ka phool nahin khilta?
kyun dil kke naghme dil nahin gaata?

IT'S CELEBRATION TIME...........
Carnival once again kicks off to a four-day rollercoaster of fun n fiesta.It's the people's call to indulgence just before the Christian 40-day period of Lent and abstinence.Despite it's timing,Carnival has nothing to do with Christianity.
Today all roads lead to the capital city as the KING MOMO comes to town.
Accompanied by a bevy of beauties,KING MOMO will on saturday[21st feb], proclaim his reign declaring three days of fun and merriment.He will be watched by thousands of people,locals and tourists.
Let's give him rousing welcome.The carnival parade will be flagged off at 3.30 p.m.
Local village clowns and children who enthusiastically participated with ingenious ideas and creative costumes are apart and parcel of the fun.with khells[street plays]city folk get a taste of things of the past.
but,when money came into the picture,the spirit of carnival went for a toss.
Floats will be held in six categories---traditional,clubs and institutions, sponsored,family category,fun and junk cars and clowns and jokers.
An estimated Rs.15.5 lakh,including prizes worth Rs.4 lakh will be spent on the event.the rural lanscape may be devoid of any carnival colour today and the presentation may never witness
the kind of celebration theirparents had and so carnival remains atime for the elders to get nostalgic.
come ,join the fun and celebrate........
the curent KING MOMO is IVOR BRAGANZA from curchorem.he is excited about standing in the float all through the parade route waving at the crowds.
his message is,''have fun and be merry.but most importantly,love and trust your felow brothers and sisters.''
and,friends, this is one party no one should miss.
world class DJs are here like,nikhil Chinappa.hey.guys,here fu meets creativity.
and to u,
kyun iss dil ko samjhana padtha hai,
kyun har dil se dil nahim milta..............[?]
wearing the mask,dressing up weirdly ,let's join the parade........
happy weekend to one and all........be in high spirits........see you soon...

jayanda,when the clock is going to strike 12 at midnight,iam so happy u are on line and you will be the first person to receive my''happy valentine's day'' wishes....love is in the air.why don't you gift a rose to all at office?great,na?let's spread feelings of joy and wonderment.
the three bros are going to have abash at LA tomorrow and make the following week memorable!photos will tell us stories,let us wait n watch.
so,what plans for tomorrow?what does your hero say?
chechie is worried why am i awake after 12?being second saturday,we are getting aholiday tomorrow.os,chechie,be kool.
can u believe,i wish amma''happy v'day''.i feel happy.amma,my first and best friend with whom i can confess and cry my heart out.........million thanks,amma....i love you and i need you very badly...
by the way,do know what happened ?the media pitches in,with its message delivery systems either in writing,through a newspaper or through telephone calls on the radio and messages keep pouring in by the hundreds.this is amore public way of celebrating the day.
sharmila didn't want to lose the chance.she dialled the no of radio station and dedicated her beautiful v'day message to her valentine who is a creative writer there.she knows very well,this love is one sided as someoneelse has already become his valentine.so what?
she did what she wanted to do.the most loving message was aired and he was shocked and shaken.
she thinks he is the tremendous zest for life.when u love someone,it's nothing.when you are loved,it's something.when the love is from both the sides,then it 's everything.
the rest of the story,u will get to know in a later post as we have to wait till monday for his reactions.she had the guts to call him ,but he pretended as if nothing happened.now it was her turn to be shocked for that ignorance.
everyone has a astory.i hope as n when i get them,it will be well told to u.would you like to send me yours?
there is someone who inspires you.follow your heart and celebrate your valentine's day..enjoy the depth and sincerity of the true feelings.giving space ,do reignite your love.and let that love is aflame that has stood the test of time.every day should be a valentine's day.it's amazing.

time to sign off.............thank you for your love and care.good night and sleep well.

this post is the reply to my friend.he was telling,there is nothing new about the posts.the happenings are the daily news we chat with each other.readily i agreed,''yes.''he was true.[but i never expected such a response].
iam happy that he takes time time to browse through my posts even though he doesn't like literature.[what do u say-a true friend?] i hope things work out in a better way for him.my sincere prayers.
when things come straight from heart,it's like fire.and some people like to be with fire. let love abide in each and every heart.so ,that it won't be a feeling to be treated as a guest.never ever share your love stories with someone who loves you silently.[that's what happened to simi.the person whom she loves and admires told her about his love for someoneelse and she had a nervous breakdown.she listened carefully,shared his romantic moments and broke down in the end].now i know,she is going to take days to get back to normal.
oh my!the most romantic day of the year is just around the corner!
do we need a special day to celebrate love?let's be in love with love itself.there are many smaller things in life.it could be wiping the tear from the eyes of the unknown person,giving a rose to the less fortunate in the neighbourhood,and causing smiles to each and everyone we meet during the day.isn't that great?love is about giving.........we may not get it back,but the joy of giving is par excellence.
we can be with our families,our friends and our dear ones.a delicious home -cooked meal is something that can work wonders.flowers convey our feelings in a better way.a person in love always expect something in red.[but my choice is jasmine-the pure white jasmine].
somewhere far away,a jasmine bud is blooming for me.
and what are the great plans guys out there have?waiting eagerly to see the photos.wishing you a pleasure trip to LA. have fun ,but within the limits.[hey,i know,u are sick of my advices].a cozy holiday away from home,you can utter the magical words to many.........as u are great tech savy,demand some latest gadgets from girls.or the bottle of your fav cologne wrapped with love also will get you bowled over.right?
this year since valentine day is falling on the weekend,it will be more exciting.Love is in the air.........have a lovely valentine's day.............GOOD LUCK[BE AWAY FROM SREERANM SENA-WE CAN'T ATTEND MANY MARRIAGES AT THE SAME MUHOORTAM...........]
it's me logging off.........

the hectic work and in between the luxury of chatting in free time with friend of your choice..so far,so good........then,as usual the unnecesary wanderings of mind.....the possessiveness.....the low feelings....[to add fuel to the fire, a major repair work of pipelines and not adrop of water for two days..]..
by the end of the day,oh,iam really kool.
it's really hurting that a great blogger had to delete his favourite fifteen posts because the readers are not matured.he who has put his soul and heart to the writings took such adecision to delete the posts as someonelse was hurt.
this is real cruelty.the time taken and the feelings experienced to write those posts,noone will ever know.anyways,noone has the right to be so rude with a writer.felt real bad after reading ,the new post of manu.
happy birthday ,aparna......be a great writer and doctor.good luck.
can i start all over again?let's see.the disturbed feelings should subside........
ok.guys,time to log off.the problem is right on the top of my pc, the wall clock often frightens me.[how can i complain i run out of time?]all the office work in pending and if i don't finish,the weekend will be a loss.
thanks for the call from SFO.i will sleep well.

today is pournami,but due to lunar eclipse,there is no light. how much i love looking at the full moon.it's awonderful sight.ur heart beats faster and love overflows from your heart.the reflection of the full moon in the sea water infront of my building........wow!!!!
got the latest photos of chinese new year n the dragon dance is so colourful and attractive.
the week began with so many loving notes and disturbing happenings.it's 8.45 pm.and the assured gift hasn't reached me.there was no plans to write this second post so fast.but,u know,iam disturbed.it happens many times a day and so iam known as a''thottavadi.''you landed up with a bang.but where are u now?disappeared into thin air?and the promises?'you too,Brutus?''
i know,iam not doing justice with my perfect priorities,they are just set as the new year resolutions,but never taken care of.''come on anu,grow up'',my inner mind tells me.no,anu will never improve her ways.
i love to watch the mangroves that line the canals.do u know,they provide a nursery and breeding ground for aquatic life.i started seeing things that i have never seen before.hey,would you like to take the credit?it's a beutiful experience.how can i ignore the request?it has come so sparingly.it's truly wonderful.specially when u r thousands of miles away from 'GOD'S OWN COUNTRY'.
here we get news papers [malayalam]in the evenings.there is nothing happening that one can be proud of his/her hometown.still we eagerly wait to read the paper. what a crowd to fetch the paper.this is one way of coming closer to our naadu.[can u understand the missing feelings of pravasis?]
by the end of the day,am i happy?or my heart is weeping?not sure.i'm always like this.changing moods often and very unpredictable.shall i still wait?it's only 9p.m.u know,i hit bed only by 12.hope for the best.
please keep in mind.''the flower a woman does not wear in her tresses loses its fragrance.''[any offering of those lovely jasmines?]
where am i heading into?to negative feelings and depressions?what for?just because,my expectations are not met with?and like a child why do i expect a lot?hey,i just don't know.[and please don't let me know].
yes,guys,it's anu signing off.good night and sleep well.

it was so tempting and always it was, to be a blogger.yes,i was one from last october,but never continued.after this brij viharam,my days n nights are spent reading the long list of manu's posts.
after my evening prayers,i just felt'',why can't i restart writing something''?
today,being thaippoyam,missing the kaavadiyattam of my my hometown,i really feel homesick.I felt,go ahead,and start my blog.
at this moment,yes,i do feel very low,may be my friend is not there to chat with.while sitting at pc,i don't even know how beautiful the night outside is.the time flies and amma on the phone reminds me ''don't waste much time at pc.''can i tell amma,how lonely i feel and these days pc has become my best friend?no complaints n no tensions.
the luxury of a sunday will end within hours and back to the hectic shedule of routine work.by the way,may i remind you,tomorrow is aayilyam n pournami.
we have our sarpakkavu in our tharavadu.and the nagas are so powerful.the sunrays never reached the thick forest.we were so scared to keep the lamp in the evenings........during day,we all cousins used tohave fun in the natural swings of tree branches...........
somewhere a jasmine is blooming for me.please do keep it .by the time i reach,the season may be over.the best gift anyone can give me is these white flowers.what an intoxication one gets........
always a late comer,i miss out the best moments ..,the best memories.........,the best friends.....
thnx a lot my little sweetie,for inspiring this lazy cheriyamma to make write something...friends,i read out my first to amma over phone.if amma approves,then no probs.for ur information,amma is the author of five books.my amma,my role model and my source of inspiration..........amma,i love you a lot.
now,with a heart brimmimg with love,anxiety and tenderness i want to sing..........''thamarakuruvikku thattamidu................''[by the way,my voice will cheat you as of a teen..........] ''loka samastha sukhino bhavanthu....''
to all who can strongly believe in my sincerity,promising a lot in store,
