Are we Social or E - Social

How many of us are ready to sit next to the unknown person in a bus? and how many of us ready to give ‘like’ to cute photo posted by anyone on a social networking site? Obvious second question will out number first by 90% ok if you feel I’m tricking you like hedge fund analyst then try answering next question. Your friend works 2 floors above you, today is his birthday will you walk to wish him or send a (c)tweet or post a wish on wall or mail with mutual friends on cc?(in-case you are not going to get any treat)

Very much a debatable topic, lets look deep into the word ‘Social’ and how it was regarded a decade back. Millennium saw new changes Globalization seed showed visible growth. People started to handshake with most people they met, in India caste and complexion difference got eradicated with the Gen X getting on top. Couple of decade back my mom was employed before marriage, she used to share her office experience at times where she met her man and got married. She used to cruse her female colleague whom sits with gang of men and chats for longtime even asks my mom to join in so my mom can be social too! My mom’s perspective was that working along with men is respectable limit of ‘social’ her colleague thought sharing jokes and patting along is also social (may be not beyond) limit was variable. Moral: My mom’s perspective matched most women of that days perspective so some other word like ‘flirting’ can be used for colleague of my mom.

Now women thinking like my mom are rare case (excuse me they don’t exist ), not just now when my sis started to work close to a decade ago. If my sis follows the boundary of my mom then she’d be regarded moody if a girl follows my mom limit now she’ll be teased not drifting away from topic the word social has always seen modifications in its definition. Coming back to the second question meeting him in person or sending a personal sms or making call are only for lovely friends so others get wishes on walls, mails… means do you want the world to know you have wished?

My bird brains analysis is that getting social in today life is not just between two persons (that’s why you get mutual friends into act) again drifting away. So what I mean by E-social, simple its the Gen Y’s social – “letting everyone know whom you know, hate, like, ditched, loved, married, la*d, @#$… ok shiva stop scribbling” :P So have we lost the real social life? like knowing one persons life crossing the ‘blue – white’ wall or micro-blogging sites? question to think deeply isn't it? My Dad is still a family friend for his colleagues but us? never cross line “don’t ask my personal I’m already frustrated with my wife go give like to my ‘honey moon’ photo….” oh please I’m not yet marriage chill!!! was trying to depict today’s world.

Now again a question whats the name of your best friends mom? do you know his address at-least which area ok if not city? God-O-God!! true right I made you think all you know is his ‘Name’ ‘Username’ ‘institution he is in’ ‘gender’ ‘cities he went to’ at time ‘password’ So coining a word E-Social is right or again changing the definition of social is enough? I don’t know!!! Now I’m thinking for myself who I’m going to make this post a propaganda may be I’d make my female friends like this post that way I can get couple more likes from guys no harm only pain truth not just social networking sites. :P ‘gender inequality exist’ $#!& if this was from a girl this would have be thought like AWESOME if(user.gender==male){trash} again deviation… ok meet you later

Up and Close with Sudalai Madan: The Encounter

Night of 13th April all the preparations for the rituals were done in the temple, Sudalaimadam swamies idol was decorated with flowers and fruits and coconuts dedicated to the lord reached above his chest.My cousin Sudalai muthu, senior priest of the shrine reached home by late night got blessings of his father Late Shanmugam Sundaram and blessed the family members in 8x10 room dedicated for God, then started towards the temple. There peoples in huge number were waiting for the Sudalaimada swamy's arrival. Different rituals were offered by people to the Lord in order to get the blessings. As its is believed Sudaimada swamy, son Lord Siva used to consume meat in Kailash for this reason he is sent to earth were he can satisfy his earthy hunger there by not polluting Kailash.

Offering meat to Sudalaimadan is the most important and an watchful event in the festival. Many devotees offer their goat & pig so as to please the lord and get his blessings. That midnight Sudalaimada swamy …

why do people sweat more in chennai???

One of the famous ornament of chennai is its summer!. Everyone here would have at least once talked about its effect and the way they affected. People comes out with sweats flowing from the body is the usual scene of chennai noon. The sweat produced is not just due to the temperature of the region. It is in fact due to the high humidity of chennai.

To explain this lets see a fact, people in chennai sweats more than the people in delhi where the temperature is higher than the former.

This is because of chennai's location. Chennai is located near sea due to which sea water evaporation is high during summer which in turn increases the humidity (Amount of water vapour present in air).
Normally human blood temperature is about 35 deg Celsius. If the outside temperature is more than that, then our system tries to automatically cools down by releasing sweat from the body.

The sweat which is released cools the surrounding heat by converting into vapour thereby reducing the body temperature…

Puththu kovilum Putho tilesum, as they are built

Its grand Aadi season here in Tamil Nadu wherever you  go you'd be followed by awful music from no mercy speakers. Yes this is the first post dedicated for it. Hindu is not a religion but it's idealism,  a way to unite people, that's perfectly constructed by assuming separate task to every God, no single God worship. Hindus moved from nature worship to idol worship, but that doesn't mean that we don't have nature worship we have created a idol for them and countinued to worship them in different form.

Snake is a beautiful reptile, I have made friend with few too... (got time? search my blog to know what I mean). Our ancestor found the nature law, 'every living creature on earth is important for the ecosystem to be balance'. Maybe to make sure snakes are not killed fearing their venom they made them as God too! Not just idol snakes, they are worshiped as they are at their conquered(from rats and termite)nest or puthu.

Lets not concentrate if snake drinks milk …
