Death Penalty

Should death penalty continue? This is a highly debatable point. When we hear the arguments from both sides we feel both are valid. This feeling was well brought out in the movie Dead Man Walking. When finally Sean Penn is injected with lethal dose we wonder if we should feel happy or sad.

Now here every ramasamy and kuppusamy in Tamilnadu is crying foul against the death penalty awarded to Raji gandhi killers. The argument they use is these guys are not guilty so they should not be hanged. If thats the case will they agree for death penalty if these guys are guilty?

All jobless politicians like Ramadass, Thirumavalavan, Vaiko who doesnt have anything to chew take up these issues and make it sound like they are fighting for Tamils. They even put arguments like how can a Tamil be hanged. These same people sometime back supported a staged encounter of a child rapist. So is it ok to kill a child rapist? Different people might have different scales.

Newspapers are filled with cheap gimmi…


A asks for something and people get convinced that its the best for everyone. A and People demand that thing from B aggressively.

B tries to escape but after somepoint says it too agrees whatever A asked for should be thought about.

A and People celebrate this as Victory.

Anna Hazare - Rajini

India is going crazy with Anna Hazare .. if it works out I will be happy but will it? May be to some extent but will it have any impact for me? I dont think so .. Life will be same before and after Lokpal Bill.

Again Rajini Sir has given a Arikkai supporting Anna Hazare. Sometime back there used to be a politicion who lived just by giving Arikkais. He was Vazhapadi Ramamurthy. Rajini has become a man of Arikais. He just keeps raising his hand to inform he is still very much there.

Final Destination 5

I have seen Final Destination 1 and also the begining of Final Destination 2. But none in big screen.

By this time almost everyone will be aware of the concept of Final Destination. Final Destination 4 was also in 3D but got some bad reviews. This time I decided to give part 5 a try in big screen as it got some good reviews. But I m not a big fan of 3D because wearing a specs irritates me a lot.

Here I was in AGS watching Final Destination 5 in 3D. The bridge scene is awesome. I was blown away by the picturisation.

Whatever follows is almost the same stuff which we havent seen before.

The 3D effects in some parts are pretty awesome especilly just right before the title card roles ..

ரெளத்திரம் - Rowthiram

ஜீவாவின் நண்பனிடம் ஜீவா : என்ன கேட்டே ஏன் பொத்துகிட்டு வருதுன்னு தானே. பொத்துகிட்டு வர்ரதுக்கு பேர்தான்டா ரெளத்திரம்.

படம் ரீலிஸாவதற்கு முன்னமே இப்படத்திற்கு டிக்கெட் புக் செய்து விட்டேன். படம் வெளியான பிறகு பல இணைய தளங்களில் இப்படத்தின் விமர்சனத்தை குறித்து படித்த பொழுது சற்று பயந்தே போனேன் இது மற்றொரு ஆழ்வாராக இருக்குமோ என்று.

இப்படம் எந்த வகையிலுமொரு புதிய முயற்சி அல்ல. பல காட்சிகள் எங்கோ பார்த்த ஒரு உணர்வை கொடுத்தாலும் என்னால் இப்படத்தை ரசிக்க முடிந்தது. இது சென்னையின் இருட்டு மூலைகளில் நடமாடும் மனிதர்களைப் பற்றிய கதை. படம் முழுக்க பல விதமான வில்லன் கதாபாத்திரங்கள் வருகிறார்கள்.

பொல்லாதவன், நான் மகான் அல்ல (கார்த்தி) படத்தை பார்த்தவர்களுக்கு இதில் வரும் காதபாத்திரங்கள் மிக பரிச்சயமாய் இருக்கும்.

சென்னை ராயபுரம் தாதக்களுக்கும் ஜீவாவிற்கும் இடையே நடக்கும் போரே கதை. ஜீவா அறிமுகமாகும் காட்சி முதல் வரும் அனைத்து சண்டை காட்சிகளிலும் அத்தனை ரெளத்திரம். ஒரு ஒரு அடியும் இடியை போல இறங்குகிறது. ரோட்டில் இஷ்ட்டத்திற்கு வண்டியோட்டுபவர்களிடம் ஆரம்பிக்கும் ஜீவாவின் ரெளத்திரம் படம் நெடுக தொடர்கிற…

Why it rains

The only reason it rains is to get me drenched without mercy. Always this happens. When I m in road it will start raining, the moment I stop somewhere and take shelter in some shop it will slowly subside but will come back with vengence when I am back on road.

I dont mind getting drenched but the package I carry should not get drenched.

Today as I was halfway in OMR it poured I took shelter in some shop. It took 15 minutes for the rain to subside. But when I was back on road it rained cats and dogs. Chennai roads which are nightmare when it doesnt rain becomes nightmarish deathtraps when it rains. There was traffic jam and I couldnt run to any shelter. After coming out of the jam took shelter for the second time. Atlast rain won, I got drenched, delayed, irritated etc etc.

When I reached home I find that it hasnt rained a single drop in this part of the region. If only i had taken an alternate route I would have escaped the wrath of raingod but ..

Launcher Pro and Transcend

For a change a technical post.

Been using Android phone for quite sometime and I came across this new app for android called Launcher pro through rediff. When I started digging deep came to know this app is quite famous in android market. I realised i have not even explored even 1% of the things out there.

So coming back to Launcher Pro, this actually changes the look and feel of the home screen and the app drawer. But I couldnt explore further because many of the features are reserved for Launcher Pro Plus for which you need to pay.

Regarding Transcend, I bought a Transcend 1 TB external hard disk some time back. The disk started giving problems right from day 1. But still I was able to use it for sometime but after sometime the problem occured very frequently. Feeling weary of Indian service center I hesitated contacting them. But when I felt I cant take it anymore, I went to their service center. Was surprised to see such a big service center and there were minimum 25 people wait…
