Status update
My gmail id was chosen in no time when i got an invite from kathir in 2006.  But i dont assume it will be the same case once i am given a choice for @facebook.com.  Monday, Mark Zuckerberg opened a new inbox which sure would have shaked the Gs and Ys of mail world.  His status update being your email can get replied by even an SMS.  Charity invites are already on ebay (700$ plus!) and by the time it hits us, atleast, 'cc' and 'bcc' shall not be the 'subject' of mailing!

Winning is contagious
Not so often, beautiful moments fall all of a sudden.  I have first seen this girl exactly twenty days ago, on the road i usually take for work.  She, in her early teens, beaming with the scent of adolescence, was pedaling a bicycle of a size way too small for her age on the sidewalk grass. It looked weird when a girl of her age just started learning it, more so stumbling and falling in front of everyone.  Though i didn't care, before i crossed, we had a good look at each other once for a no cause. And there were none till today, to be on the same road again, to face her with the same bicycle, this time she, on the seat with her feet in tandem, steady and spreading the scent all along the way. And there, when our eyes met for one more time, were definite smiles crossing our lips!

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
