கறுப்பு பணம்

எல்லா  இடத்திலும் இப்பொழுது பேசப்படும் ஒரே வார்த்தை கறுப்பு பணம். அநேகர் இதற்கு ஆதரவு தெரிவித்து உள்ளனர். கறுப்பு பணம் இல்லாதவர் இந்நாளில் உண்டா? நம்முடைய பொருளாதார அமைப்பு அனைத்துமே கறுப்பு பணத்தை ஊக்குவிக்கும் வண்ணமே உள்ளது. இந்நிலையில் கறுப்பு பணம் இல்லாதவர் ஒருவர் கூட இருக்கமுடியாது.

அப்படியானால் அநேகர் இதற்கு ஆதரவு தெரிவிப்பதற்கு என்ன காரணம்? பெரிய முதலைகள் மாட்டுவார்களாம். மறுபடியும் சிறு தவறு செய்தால் அது தவறு இல்லை பெரிய தவறு செய்பவனே குற்றவாளி என்னும் ஒரு தவறான மனித மனதின் வெளிப்பாடே இது.

அது மட்டும் அல்லாது தனக்கு பத்து ரூபாய் நட்டம் வந்ததாலும் அடுத்தவனுக்கு பெரிய நட்டம் வந்தால் போதும் என்னும் இன்னொரு தவறான எண்ணத்தின் வெளிப்பாடும் இது.

Jayalalitha

Certain things are just unbelievable.

After MGRs demise no one would have guessed Jayalalitha can become CM but it happened.

But after the 1996 fiasco again no one would have guessed she can become CM again but it happened.

Between 1991 - 1996 it was mostly the ministers sycophancy and self indulgence of her that earned the wrath of the people.

But who would have guessed that the same people will do a 180 degree turnaround and show the kind of dedication which makes the sycophancy of the ministers pale in comparison. Atleast the ministers will benefit for their sycophancy but what does these common people gain? How did they become so dedicated? I don't think that they show that kind of dedication to anyone else in their family.

If MGR was a phenomenon he looks like a kid in front of Jayalalitha.

It is very difficult to understand people.

But nature evens out everything. It's ways are really unpredictable.

We need to wait and watch.

Celebrity

Recently I was thinking about my interests when I was a teen. I was a big fan of tamil novels. Especially Rajesh Kumar, Subha and Pattukotai Prabhakar. While I was reading these main stream authors I also used to read Rajendra Kumar and Pushpa Thangathurai. Compared to the earlier three these two will sprinkle in little more erotica in their writing.

At that time all these people were in their top form and they were celebrities. Over the year the latter two were no more there in the field. I can see the celebrity span of these celebrities are limited. I dont know how many of them remembers Pushpa Thangathurai. Only people who were from 70's and 80's still look for his writing that too not actively. Some celebrities will have longer span than others.

There are some who gets written in the history like the kings and artists like Alexander or Da Vinci but others are forgotten after their era. Their names will still be found by people who dig deeper into he area but still their longevity is limited.

Even if we look at MGR who had a huge fan following during his days, I dont know how many will remember MGR as an actor. People who search for his movies has come down and will come down as the people who lived during his days die. He will still be there in history as TNs chief minister though as it is an official record. Like that some might exist only in the history records.

Compared to normal people their longevity might be high but when we look at it from the earth's age everything blurs.

But dinosaurs are real heros they are still remembered after millions of years but still only as species which went extinct. It can happen to all the Kim Kadarshians, Paris Hiltons, Donald Trumps, Michael Jacksons, Rajini Kanths, Kamal Hassans and Ambanis as well. They will only be remembered as human species.

Sicario


Sicario is one movie which impressed me in a long time. Atleast the first 3 quarters of the movie was in different league and the twist in the climax was not that impressive, atleast for me. Everyone delivered stellar performance right from Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin to Emily Blunt as the brooding women agent.

The cinematography was fantastic, the state of Arizona provides such stunning backdrop for the happenings.

Sometimes I had to just sit through without understanding what the hell was happening but it was still satisfying.

If you are looking for a gripping thriller, this is the movie for you.
