We are the champions

We are the champions.

Me writing about a musical album?May be bit weird, but dears this is a space we share about our passions right? So please do excuse me this time, let me express my beyond the time love for this ballad “we are the champions".

Many seasons back a nun and a teacher found out a school kid with her fellow shivering friends hiding behind a chemistry lab. The kids were so scared, they were about to perform a skit, but they were the only ones from a poor local school, without those colourful costumes and a professional trainer. They don’t have a proper script neatly typed either. They came in a local bus while all others have their own school bus with big colourful banners. Their uniforms were dull, different and pathetic in their appearance.  The kids felt as aliens so they decided to hide and not to participate in the art festival. 

But if you are a convent school product, you kne…

ഒരു ദിവസത്തിന്റെ ഒടുക്കതിനും ഒന്നിന്റെ തുടക്കതിനും ഇടയിലെ "സമയം ഇല്ല സമയം", പുറത്തെ ഇരുട്ടിലേയ്ക്കു മഴപെയുന്നു, കൈനീട്ടി തൊടാന്‍ ആവാത്ത അകലത്തില്‍ പെരുമഴ പെരുക്കം നീ അറിയതെയ്പോവുന്നത് ഒരു നോവാണ് ഞാന്‍ എന്ന നൊമ്പരം. നനഞ്ഞു പോയ വാക്കുകള്‍ക്കും നരച്ച  മൌനത്തിനും ഇടയില്‍ എവിടെയോ കുരുങ്ങി കിടക്കുന്ന ഒരു ചെറിയ സത്യം "ഞാന്‍". അത് ഒരു മുറിവാണ്. നീ പെയ്തു തിമര്‍ക്കുമ്പോള്‍ ഒരു നിശ്വാസം പോലും നിനക്ക് ഒരു ആലോസരമാവതിരിക്കാന്‍. ഞാന്‍  മുഖം നനഞ്ഞ കൈകള്‍ കൊണ്ട് അമര്ത്തിപ്പിടിക്കുന്നു. ദുഃഖം ഖനീഭവിച്ച കണ്ണുകള്‍ നീ കാണാതിരിക്കാന്‍ ഈ രാന്തലിന്റെയ്‌ തിരി താഴ്ത്തുന്നു, ഇടറിയ സ്വരം നീ അറിയാതിരിക്കാന്‍ വാതില്‍ പതിയെ ചാരുന്നു. എന്നിട്ട് എന്നിലേയ്ക്ക് തന്നേയ് മടങ്ങുന്നു. എന്നിട്ടും എന്തേ  എന്റെ മുറിവ് നിന്റെ പേര് പറയുന്നു? എന്നിലേയ്ക്ക് ഒരു പെരുമഴ വന്നു നിറയുന്നു. ഭൂമിയുടെ ഗര്‍ഭ പാത്രത്തോളം ചെന്ന് നിറയുന്ന പ്രളയം.  പോകാതെ വയ്യ പെണ്ണിന്റെ പെണ്മ പൂക്കാത്ത സമതലങ്ങള്‍ തേടി. എനിക്ക് തരു എന്നെ ഒളിപ്പിക്കാന്‍ ആറടി മണ്ണ്.  നീ അ…

Green..Save nature..

Green..Save nature.., a photo by {deepapraveen very busy with work..back soon on Flickr. The chain link fencing is a barrier to the freedom and entity, where there can't be any process of development and future..........sometime in that realm of monotony someone gets a spark of optimism through that enthusiasm they try out of their soul to reach the sovernity of future, there we see the apparent wish and lust motivation. They see only the future and blind about the anarchism, like the overwhelming green depicted here. The creeper struggling to thrive over the fencing the optimism of mankind. There only we will find a green world of prosperity.

Green..Save nature..

In Kerala this is a common temple flower. The flowers are mainly in two colours white and blue. This is used as an Ayurveda medicine also. This is considered as one of the main herb for brain power. This is a plant species belonging to the Fabaceae family. As you can see the most striking feature about this plant are its vivid deep blue flowers with light yellow markings. This grows as wine or creeper.

Wishing you all a happy easter 2011/Easter 2011 greetings to all

Wishing you all a happy easter 2011/Easter 2011 greetings to all a photo by {deepapraveen very busy with work..back soon on Flickr. Easter: As per the Canonical gospels, Jesus rose from the dead on the third day after his crucifixion. This resurrection is celebrated on Easter Day. It is also called Easter Day, Easter Sunday, Resurrection Day or Resurrection Sunday. The week leading up to Easter is called Holy Week.

It is interesting to know how the name Easter emerged? One story says the name comes form the Goddess of Spring called Eostre who some people worshipped long before Jesus was born. At that time it was thought that the sun died in winter and was born again in spring when days would lengthen and the sun’s power would return. This goddess Eostre was honoured as the bringer of spring. So comes the name Easter
My Easter memories are always attached with good food. This central feast in the Christian liturgical year falls during our summer holidays in India. So during my childhood d…
