One Way

A road is marked as one way. I go in wrong direction in that road. I will be caught by the police and punished for rule violation.

A road is marked as one way. A police vehicle is parked and police looks upon when people go in wrong direction. They don't take any action. Now shouldn't they be punished for breaking their rule which is to catch those breaking the laws?

In India laws are made by police and not by constitution. The ones made by constitution are just in papers.

I came to know about Sundar through his website I used to follow his website very closely for Rajini related updates which he used to give in a interesting manner. Once I even had the opportunity to talk to him through phone. Though it was once I remember the conversation very well.

I also witnessed his move from to This was indeed a big change. I still wonder what made him to change his direction. Once he moved to his new website I didn't notice any reference to Rajini in any of his post. I even used to wonder if he still considered himself as Rajini's fan.

He became a full time website manager and then I stopped monitoring his website but occasionally used to wonder if he was still running the website.

His new avatar was totally different it made me see a different side of him. I used to wonder can a person be as humble as him. He even had a apt nick name simplesundar.

Today accidentally I came across the news that he met with an accident today and he is no more.

I am at loss of words. I immediately visited his website and found he had even posted an article yesterday.

This just reminds that death is just right at our doorstep and the distance between life and death is just a simple line.

I have never met him in person but our common interest brought us close. I have just had one conversation with him but his passing away is like losing a very good friend. It is now very painful to go back and read his old posts in

I never thought I will be writing a post on him.

Sundar, you will be missed.

One of the worst nightmares that can come true is your bike getting punctured when you are on the way to work. If it is in Chennai then it is special.

As per murphys law your bike always get punctured at a place where there wont be any sign of puncture shop in the neat vicinity. It has happened to me umpteen times and every time I had to talk quite some distance to find a shop.

Another specialty is the guy will never come to the place where the bike is. He will always ask you to bring the bike. Pushing the bike with punctured wheel will only do more damage and that is what they expect. Even if you are ready to cough up more money they don't budge.

The first answer you get is the puncture can't be repaired and we have to go for new tube. Important reason is the mouth and the puncture hole is worse because you pushed it all the way to shop at his request.

கறுப்பு பணம் - 2

மோடி 500 மற்றும் 1000 ரூபாய் நோட்டுக்கள் செல்லாது என்று சொன்னபொழுது இது நிச்சயம் நல்லது என்று நினைத்தவர்களில் நானும் ஒருவன். ஆனால் அதை செயல் படுத்தியவிதம் அந்த எண்ணத்தை பொடி பொடியாக்கிவிட்டது.

இந்தியா போன்ற கட்டுமானத்தில் பின்தங்கிய நாட்டுக்கு இது சரிப்படாது. குறிப்பாக சென்னை புயலில் சிக்கிய இந்த நாட்களில் இது தெளிவாக புரிந்தது. எங்குமே அட்டையை உபயோகிக்க முடியவில்லை. காரணம் தொடர்பு சாதனங்கள் இயங்கவில்லை. ரூபாய் நோட்டுக்களை இல்லை. இதனால் தொல்லை அடைந்தவர்களில் நானும் ஒருவன்.

இன்னும் வங்கிகளில் கூட்டம் குறைந்தபாடில்லை. நம் நாடு ஒன்று இப்படி ஒரு சர்வாதிகாரியிடம் மாட்டுகிறது அல்லது ஒரு முதுகெலும்பில்லாத ஆட்களிடம் மாட்டுகிறது .

ஆனால் இதுவரை தமிழர்கள் மட்டுமே இழித்தவாயர்கள் என்று நினைத்திருந்த எனக்கு வடஇந்தியர்களும் சளைத்தவர்களில்லை என்று உறுதி செய்யப்பட்டு இருக்கிறது.
