Ships at bay

Eventhough the distance we cover definitely matters, trees on either side together make 'the road'!
This month started tunneling me to the path i have never neared. The tubular vision i already possess did no good either.  It all went straight until an adenovirus found its way into my eye.  A day off due to conjunctivitis was good enough to orchestrate some old operas.

Heard about Lightscribe discs in 2007 when kathir gave a note and my notebook came with a sticker on it.  It actually enables you to customize and print a label of your own on a compatible DVD. hp comes with the hardware and two more softwares will do the rest. But the real difficulty lies in procuring a compatible disc, which i too couldn't even after searching from musicworld to underworld. The hope was held at bay until e-bay rescued me with the offer of 5 discs for Rs (?symbol) 200/-. Waiting for the ship!

If it is Red, Black and White, i can't wait. Pentax k-x SLR comes with exactly the same and the look of it took me at the very first sight. SLR gets decoded into 'single lens reflex' (recent wiki wiser!) and her face for you finds its way from lens through mirror to viewfinder with a pentaprismatic flip. The best part of Pentax is the array of colours it has to choose from. 650 dollars ($)  is being quoted rather cheap for this entry-level SLR by most reviewers and i am no expert in photography to comment on its work atleast until it also ships!

Travel tip: pass through Road to Perdition for one more time !

TeA LeavEs # 6

The Freight Flawless alone flies.  This is my first ever hands on with FedEx, or any international courier for that matter.  A little over 2 kg thing is being pigeoned for the past 3 days, with a tag of a potential bollywood film title 'Indianapolis to India'.  The convenient part of it being the mail i received on day 1 with the tracking number hyperlinked.  Just one click, and it shows you with minutes precision, the weight of it and the wait for it.  Hassle free!  And for those who are just ready to suspect me, before you have a go, visit here for the cargo.  Its really not late.  U could also pen your name on a new one paying 30$ less.  Just have to be as lucky as i am. The Fright  Let me amend it further; Flawless and Fearless fly.  On that day, Lance Klusener was flawless.  Steve Waugh was fearless.  English summer '99 witnessed a day which portrayed which one of the two prevailed.  However faint it sounds, Faith is the nearest i choose for the word Fearless.  Faith …

Tea Leaves #8

Instant print
I may be old fashioned, 'digital is great, but papers are perfect'.  The love for instant cameras started from good old toddler days.  A portrait peeping out in a minute is an unmatchable joy.  If you are with me on this, then take these picks.
As the name suggests, 'Fujifilm instax mini 90 neo' is classic. The brown coloured piece is just what you wanted. Retro looks with a view finder, bulb exposure and quite a few modes, eyes in a party can't give a miss. 150$ won't burn your pocket too. Only trouble is that it lacks any digital capacity. You can't store anything, but to shoot and print. Also, mind, the cost per print can be 20 Indian rupees per picture!
My vote though is reserved for the upcoming ' Polaroid Snap' an instant and digital camera from a company that just revived itself from bankruptcy. This one will hit the stores in four colours, print using Zero-ink technology (seriously! no ink, but heat activation of colorized crys…

பொத்தான்

விடுபட்டிருந்த
ஐந்தாம் பொத்தானுக்காய்
நிராகரிக்கப்பட்டிருந்தது
ஒரு சட்டை

உள்புறமாய்
ஊக்கு குத்திவிட்டும்

காலர் பொத்தானைப்
பெயர்த்துக் கட்டியும்

கால்சட்டைக்குள்
செருகிவிட்டு மறைத்தும்

அச்சட்டைக்குள்
நுழையத் துவங்குகிறார்கள்
பொருத்தமானவர்கள்

முதல் மூன்றுடன்
முழுதும் மறைந்து போக
அவ்வைந்தாம் பொத்தான் குறித்த
யாதொரு பிரக்ஞையுமற்றுத்
திரிந்தது
யாசகம் பெற்ற குழந்தை
