Quite the contrary


Green Apple.  The symbol of unconventional.  The plant and the planet featured red and fresh.  She fell for the refrigerated.  And kept cold were every untold.  The room too was getting cold.  She needed to bear the wrath of some authors to make herself seated.  It was all books on that chair before she put them down.  Top dangled was Darwin. His natural selection.  Submerged in thoughts, she connected the dots. Change was gradual. Small. But continuous. It was a process which brought her new strains; which rendered her immune to any pains. The theory of her evolution  parodied with one such microbiology lecture.  Antigenic Drift.  The impact one's influence had left. She could isolate him. The Influenza.

Influenza is the virus.  The virus which reads H1N1 this year; Nose and eyes, the onset brings out tears; Avian, swine, equine, it shifts every gear;  The virus which is commonly cold; randomly rocks the world.  Influenza is that virus which shows 'the fittest survives'.

Surviving.  A thin line separated it from Living.  What he encountered with books were the former.  Whatever  in the wards he enjoyed were all the latter.  And that thin line started figuring freely and far frequently  in his shoulders. Stethoscope.  This part of their life could very well be a tale in every others diary.  Year two  curriculum ever remained a blossom of pairs.  The year when everyone ear-pieced to hear someone's heart.  Clicks in many; Splits in some.  The hurried heard murmurs. With fingers prior to ears,  he stayed systematic.  And thence she stayed a 'thrill'.  Anything  above grade three.

Three.  The double 'ee' makes it more sweet.  This time she thought, remembering how he took her that far.

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
