PROVERBIAL CONTRAST

Image

For many cooks spoil the broth

          BUT

Two heads are better than one

 

He who hesitates is lost

 BUT

Look before you leap

 

It is never too late to learn

          BUT

You cannot teach an old dog new tricks

 

The pen is mightier than a sword

          BUT

Actions speak louder than words

 

The face is the index of mind

          BUT

Appearances are deceptive

 

Practise makes a man perfect

          BUT

All work and no play makes jack a dull boy

 

Silence is golden

 BUT

The squeaky wheel gets the grace

 

Clothes maketh the man

          BUT

Never judge a book by its cover

 

Birds of the same feather flock together

BUT

Opposite poles attract 

a writeup by my grandpa…

obsessed to..

Its been a long time since my last post and indeed its great to get back blogging 🙂 and yes i have moved on wordpress finally 😀 As i was ruminating on what to blog for I thought of writing up about something which relates me a lot 😀

There goes a saying which say “She’s dead. And you’re still obsessing”..holds true in my case..There are many here, a desperate teenager prays to “Dear God, Hope I get my tickets for the first day show”.I still remember when my brother was begging my cousin to get the final book “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” the very day morning it got out.One can relate all these as heights of obsession.

Sometimes obsession to me takes an elevation when it comes to K-serial.I still remember when i bunked one day college to complete my K-Serial “Boys Over Flowers” and I watched 15 episodes in one day, sacrificing food and sleep and of course wasting time.

Does this have a positive impact or a negative impact ??? is the question that arises

In movies, screenwriters and special effects artists create new and ever more graphic ways for characters to be maimed and killed. These kind of obsession may lead to serious consequences. In the movie series “Saw,” everyday people are abducted and put through gruesome trials or “games,” often resulting in their death. These movies showcase many squirm-in-your-seat moments that leave you wondering how the horrific scenes are conceptualized and made so realistic.Talking about the affirmative end they may encourage you,invoke positive thoughts and also may give a feel of compassion and relish the scenes which happen in there.One may relate the “Quidditch” match in the Harry Potter series.

Obsession may also be to things and to people.Something might already have been over a long time ago but might keep on going on in your mind always.My Obsession I often wonder about myself: why does this obsession of mine drive me to such an extreme. Why does the right side of my brain surface in such a manner that even I can’t understand. Is it out of boredom. Or is it overzealous creativity.???

1.Lee Min Ho (Goo jun pyu in  Boys Over Flowers)

Dunno whether it is because of his spiral hair or his character in the serial I am obsessed to this guy and aftermath as i said watched 15 episodes one day.

2.Rupert Grint (Ronald weasely)

Ron (rupert’s character)is the most mediocre of his siblings, neither an excellent Quidditch player, a noteworthy student, nor the son his mother always wanted. All these factors have combined to cause Ron serious insecurities but always searches for some reason to prove himself .Rupert perfectly does his job well and truly his “expressions” are the major reason for my obsession.

Ear rings,Angry Birds,Baloons,stuffed dolls

I am highly obsessed to earrings 😀 wherever i go out I am sure to get one on my way back..Angry birds is yet another thing which I am obsessed to and my collection are endless ..As i was pondering around my facebook profile I found this pic of teddy bear saving children.Yes I am highly obsessed to soft toys.They are like an emotional support to me always. Balloons are the next in the list of my obsession.Coloured balloons,the feel i get when i see them is priceless 😀

Till my next post 😀

cheers 🙂

wandering taste buds :D

Pani Puri,I wonder at these small cups filled with tasty nectar in them and their innovation. I think as far as food innovation goes this surely deserves a Nobel for their sheer creativity.
Sometimes filled with hot chick pea or with potatoes and filled with sweet date chutney and immersed in fresh mint water – one plate can never be enough.Their taste is like a thriller novel unfolding. The first pages unravel a crunchy ball bursting into the tightly grasped mouth, the water gushing into all corners of the mouth, the potato unwrapping itself in the end and finally when you gulp all down the real mystery of its taste unfolds.
I have had the best of pani puri’s just next to my house in Mumbai. . But the best one till date has been at a shop in Chennai and I have to thank one of my frnds (vasavi) for letting me try over ther for the first time.Next one is osb a shop near my house which is also lip smacking equally.. 
So if life is feeling heavy, explode with a pani puri.
GO PANIPURING… hmmmmmmmmmm!!!!

saree- the best apparel :-)

Saree is a marvel. It’s a fine creation which gives that sensuous and caring touch, feminine appeal and above all aided by these factors gives its wearer, obviously a lady, that special sparkle and charm. In spite of having the hardest of trials of being done away with,it is simple,elegant and the best attire.Rather than clinging on with a jean and a top or the usual chudidhar saree gives u a very decent look.this is what i think…no offence…wearing a saree doen’t mean u need to leave ur hair loose out to luk gud…a saree gives u the look even if u have ur hair plaited or jus a centre clip..a loose hair well in my personal opinion is’nt a gud option to go on with.Its the best traditional attire and it is attracted the most then other garb.A nine yard saree usually worn by elderly woman is worn by grabbing the cloth below  and putting over the shoulder and It is allowed to hang from the waist straight down and around like a skirt..Its worn during special occasions and gives an awsome look..It is worn on special occasions, especially by the bride on marriages ( which is for the first time they wear as per brahmin culture)..truly its the best attire ever !!

saree makes them even more amazing !

are we humans ????

These are pictures captured in Denmark and the same was reported in Japan too…it is a big shame for us…The Sea is stained in red and in the mean while it’s not because of the climate effects of nature. It’s because of the cruelty that the human beings (civilised human) kill hundreds of the famous and intelligent dolphins 😦 .This happens every year. In this slaughter the main participants are young teens.
WHY?
To show that they are adults and mature…darn it.. :X.In this big celebration, nothing is missing for the fun. Everyone is participating in one way or the other, killing or looking at the cruelty “supporting like a spectator”. Is it necessary to mention that the dolphin Calderon, like all the other species of dolphins, it’s near instinct ion and they get near men to play and interact, In a way of PURE friendship  They don’t die instantly; they are cut 1, 2 or 3 times with thick hocks. And at that time the dolphins produce a grim extremely compatible with the cry of a new born child. But he suffers and there’s no compassion till this sweet being slowly dies in its own blood. It’s enough! Please show little care towards the sea creatures which will show us a way for a better tomorrow.
Take care of the world, it is your home!
