My vision for a better TamilNadu (first and later India)

If I come to power, (the word power is not right, it should be serving people) my vision will be as follows:

First thing take a survey of whole Tamil Nadu. Study where there is densly populated and where there is poorly populated. Will take all the waste land survey. Will take all the place where it can be good for agriculture.

Take all the surveys/needs for
1) Farmers
2) Industrialists
3) School/college students on how their ethics is

and bring in self motivated, service centered, knowledgeable persons and get all their feedbacks and allocate each of them an area to work on the defects.

Where there is densly populated will also study what makes it so and try to take those stuffs to other areas.

Make Tamilnadu green, bring as much possible 4 lane roads or sub ways, nice trees all throughout, big buildings with lot of parking facilities with adequate commute etc. Remove corruption. Equal rights for everyone (no religion, caste based reservations) and the reservations will be based on income level. For this, each family/person has to pay the tax properly and bring-in adequate jobs so that people will not have any problem.

Like more of "Narendra Modi" government!!

I know lot of people have this vision.. This is a good vision.

It is a "big black mark" for all Tamilians

Recently, India has seen 2 big corruptions. One is the Spectrum 2G corruption and the other one is the Common Wealth games corruptions. First one is 1.77 lakhs crores and the second one is 2500 crores.

I read some information about Spectrum 2G. BJP brought in "Income sharing" rule in 2001 for Telecomm companies. What it means is, Telecomm companies not only pay a initial charge for getting the license but also share some cost for each subscriber they get. Also, this applies for first come first serve basis.

In 2001 when they implemented, there were around 1 crore customers. In 2008, they were using the same charge as of 2001 for 30 crore customers which lead to around 1.3 lakhs crores + the initial deposit which tallies to 47 lakhs crores totalling 1.77 lakhs crores.

The worst part is mostly these corruptions are done by Tamilians. Being a Tamilian, I feel very bad.

I still dont understand how people can be involved in these corruptions and still be ethical to their jobs? If atleast 50% of this money being spent on the welfare of people, part of India would have been beautiful and got whatever it needed.

India is projected as one of the top growing nations and is a part of BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China) and doing these scandals will not help India in any way..

You cannot blame only the politicians, as people get money to even vote for their favorite party, what can you expect from these politicians !!!

Thirudanaai paarthu thirunthaavitaal thirutayum ozhika mudiyadhu.. what it means is, each one of us has to change for a good society!!!

whatever good is not good and bad is not bad

I was watching a History channel program the other day about some Rome empire ruling 2100 years before. On this, they have figured out that there was a ship with wine container jars in that ship and it got sank. May be that day it might be bad for those people.

However, we are able to understand more about their empire today and took out some of the jars from the deep ocean.

So, what I feel is sometimes we feel when bad happens why it is happening to me and blame external factors!! If bad happens, it might be for a reasoning and who knows after some 1000 years it may be a good thing!!

Life of a Rock - by my 10 year old daughter

I am Sam the sedimentary rock. So far I haven’t been changed for thirteen months! That’s the longest I’ve gone without being changed. I began my adventure at soil, and guess what? At that moment pressure occurred. I got forced down and went to the mantle. Man, was it hot in there. I was in there for so long that I lost count of how many days (or was it years?)I was in there. Suddenly I heard a rumbling noise and I got shot up into the air. When I came down I first took a deep breath. Then I looked at myself. I was an igneous rock! All that pressure and heat really got me. The magma flowed straight into the ocean taking me with it. Before I knew it I was in the ocean. The force broke me up into sediments. Months later I got evaporated with some of the water. Days, weeks and months passed and I was still stuck in a fluffy cloud. Aaaaah! I shouted as I fell through the air. Though I wasn’t very heavy I had a harsh landing. OW! Well I’m back to the place where I started. My births place the soil. Pressure again? Back to the mantle I guess. There was a loud rumble. Two tectonic plates were colliding each other! I was going to see the sun again! I am a rock of the mountain get it rock of the mountain instead of part of the mountain. I am not very humorous am I? It was so cold on the mountain that it felt like ice partly because it was snowing. 1 month past 2 months passed still no sign of the snow melting. Finally after 3 months of shivering the snow finally melted and it eroded me into the ocean. OH NO NOT THE BOTTOM OF THE SUFFOCATING BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN AGAIN! Now I am stuck at the bottom of the ocean narrating my adventurous story. Now that you know my devastating tale and still think that being a rock is easy please think again.

is abhishegam really necessary?

Some of Vivek's comedy should really provoke thoughts in people's mind. Example is the "Sangu Saakiyam"

Country like India, population is so much and percentage of people under poverty is more. Lot of kids dont even have milk, ghee etc !!

In such a scenario, why is still people pouring lot of milk and other stuffs on God statue. Even, if God comes directly, seeing this, he will also ask the same question. I am not against religion or people doing these stuff. I am just thinking, atleast the milk poured on the statue if given to the needed kids, it might get healthy!!!

I understand there are some significances for doing abhishekams. However, I cannot convince myself given this scenario!!

Dont mistake me and I always wanted to question this and my mind is always having a tough time to accept it, even though I am doing it lot of times against my wish!!!!

Facebook

These days, I am in for Facebook. It is easy to write in one line and your followers are already there to know you. However, in case of a big sentences, we still need blogs.

Last month I watched the following movies:

1)Percy Jackson (English)
2)Kula Kulaya mundirika (Tamil - Crazy Mohan dialogue)
3)Avatar (in DVD)
4)Guru Sishyan (Sathyaraj-Sundar) Aiyo marana kadi dont watch it!! also filthy comedies
5)Shutter Island (English in DVD) psycho.. I didnt like it!!
6)Ravaana (in theater)

Percy Jackson is for kids. It is a formula driven approach copied from Harry Potter. Hindu religion system is followed. Like Hindu religion follows 5 different gods like Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Space the same kind of system is followed and this guy is a demi-god of water.

KKM - watched for Crazy Moha dialogues. It was very good for dialogues. Movie is a kothu.

Avatar - already posted comments on this.

GS - No need of comments. waste movie wasted my time

SI - I think I wasted time on this movie too.. very boring!!

Raavana - Not good and not bad!! Scenary was very nice. Nothing much to write!!
