Kudhookalam

Now, Thiruppaavai in english and tamil with meaning..Maargazhikkula meaning therinjuppom vaanga... Click here !!

My dear Makkaaaaa!!

Kutti priya was vettipriya till 2007. But, unbelievably busy now a days..Ellam Ph. D. dhaan.. Vera enna iruka mudiyum.. As my friend says " 'Ural'ukkulla vizhundaachu..Idi pattu dhaane aaganum"... Missing those days when I used to sit reading blogs sipping coffee every now and then..

Well, ennatha solla..Makkale..matter onnum illa..pulambals of life dhaan everyday.. Timae illa..

Well, 2 weeks ago, I drove up to Texas A &M University from El Paso via Austin to give a presentation. I started early morning from austin on a friday. The two hour drive to A&M is simply suberb and memorable. I always had a weird interest to go around pastoral place on a working day. I mean that I should not go in a gang to see such a scenic place but should go myself when my friends and faculty are working in their offices. In brief, naan vettiya sutharche adhu working daya irukanum..May be, that wish of mine being fullfilled during that visit made me happy from within. May be enna May be - adhaan!!

Hyundai Sonata - Pastoral scenary with Cows and goats in farm land (I love cows and horses) - Ilayaraja's 'Elangaathu Vessudhe' Song played - - Tears came out from my eyes- Enjoyed like anything. All of a sudden, you see a sign board saying College station (the location where A&M univ is ). I was like.. Oh my God!!

Nobody can imagine that a university can be in that area. Yeh, the univ is in between a big farming area. The town " college station " has nothing other than the university and Texas A&M is so huge.. Never have I seen such a big university - probably the second biggest univ in U.S.A i guess. It had resemblence of BITS, Pilani... I started living in the past for a while..

As usual, I got lost inside this big campus. So, I got a chance to go around the whole campus.
Man... I enjoyed the feel ..everybody working around me. I am roaming around campus..After a while, finally... I felt responsible that I need to be at the meeting, came out of the dream world and identified the alumni center and reached - Ofcourse late.. but much earlier to my talk time.

It was a presentation contest.. Ammaavukku bayamee illa..because my thoughts were full of happiness and admiration for the drive and location. Never I got so much out of my own control..loosened feel..irresponsible.. Thanni adichaa ipdi dhaan irukum pola irukku- inam puriyaadha sandhosham!! Well, my talk went okay. I made a lot of friends within hours from different univs in texas who were at the meeting. I asked some of the Aggies (Texas A & M ites) to show me around and they did. Ammavukku consolation prize kedachudhu. But somehow, I was not having any emotion towards it..Mannn..

Vaazhkaiyla manasukulla aasai pattadhu (evlo sillya irundhaalum) namma edhir paakadha timela nirai verumbodhu kedaikra sandhosham - rather we shall call it "kudhookalam"- Chaanse illa..

Getting reminded of these lines in the song "angel vandhaale" - " Neerukkul poothirundha poovonrai neendhi vandhu arindhaye.. nandri uyire"
