Love the Jungle
Human beings are 'beautiful'. But on their rise to this honour, there eluded from their armory a treasure termed 'natural'.  Myself being a largely uninterested animal on animals, never heard of anything about this most expensive documentary until madhu's plugged in hard drive drove me towards a folder titled 'PLANET EARTH'.  The eleven episode long series that took 2000 field days of filming hit the air in 2006 via BBC for the world to see.  Having shot in HD footage, David Attenborough borrows you thoroughly into his narration. Leave alone the landscapes & living things, even a little plant unearths itself into the planet so beautifully.  Being an animal to human, i highly recommend this one as a must view!

Love is a Jingle
Now i am forced to elaborate a little further on my first line.  Yes, 'Some' are 'more beautiful'.  And when enters such a someone as pronoun, then love ought to be the sole verb for the sentence.  There are times in everyone where the age and sex matched of this verb with verbals prevail.  But there too exists a harmonious noun beyond all these hormones.  Also there is a long list longing this.  Not even in your wildest imagination, you could have encountered a child of seven who already had lost his mother, being abdicated in hospital by an ailing father, smiling at you when his case sheet in your hands reading acute leukemia.  The need of the hour, what else, but the noun, now!

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 …

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
