The road to the mountain

From a deep sleep, I woke up one day. Two loving and caring people were standing in front of me. They carried me in their arms with care and continued their journey. Several people met us on the way and shared their love. Gradually I too began to walk with them. When I was walking, I was so curious to know about the things and places I crossed. I inquired about those things to my parents and others around me. They patiently answered to those questions.
After some time, I realised that each one of us was travelling on foot by a muddy road. I asked my mother, “Where are we going?”. She replied, pointing at a distant mountain that we were walking towards the mountain where the God lived. I asked her, who was that God. People around me explained many things about God. Some of those explanations were understandable and acceptable to me and some were beyond my understanding. Some gave meaning to what we do and some gave aspirations to move forward. Still, I could see that I had believed them…

Truth about God

God is the reason for many of the issues in the world in the past and the present. Don't mistake me.  I'm not blaming Him. He is the reason why my country is divided into two pieces. He is the reason for several riots and killings. He is the reason for the hatred. I know He is not causing the problem because I have never seen him in all those things. But people indulging in the violence claim that they fight for Him. It is not one or two religious groups which do this but each and every religion. Each religion has at least one dark memory in the course of history. But when we think about those dark incidents we will understand that the people involved have done that to save their ego and to prove themselves right. They are least worried about the God they believe. They just want to claim that what they believe is the only truth. They don’t understand that the truth is always beyond our imagination.

My School Days

The school days will be one of the memorable and evergreen days for all. I was reminded about my school days recently. I met some of my school friends in a get together at Chennai, which made me travel to the glorious days of my school days. I like to share those days with you all.


Welcome you all for a travel to my past…

When I was studying in fifth standard, my dad told me that for sixth standard I may have to go to a new school called “Carmel”. I was so excited on hearing that because Carmel is one of the best and old schools in my district. Most of the great people from my home town might have studied there. If it is so special, do you think getting into Carmel will be easier? No way… I have to clear the entrance test. I have to be one among the hundred selected from around 2000 candidates. It was a big task, at small age. There were coaching classes and at last I made it.
First day… It was a great day of my life. I was so excited. Wearing new white shirt and trousers, I got ready t…

Are they real?

I'm very much fascinated by the beauty hidden in every simple thing around us which we see in our day to day life. I wanted to capture this beauty. So I got interested in photography and bought my own camera and started learning to capture the reality with the lens. When seeing those pictures, I completely fall in love with the colours. We are completely surrounded by colours which make our lives beautiful and interesting. But whether the colours which we see around are real? Whether the red is really red; blue is really blue; green is really green?

I came across this doubt when I heard a speech in TED. In that presentation, speaker was telling that plants which we think that are immobile are really moving. We calculate the movement of an object relative to a point. We think that if an object moves from one point to another point at x distance it is called movement. So we believe that as the trunk of a tree is at the same place, the trees can't move. But we should notice that…

A Great Step...

Pudhiyadhor… Urapakkam which has become a part of my life, celebrates its fifth birthday on 19th May, 2009. In the past four years it has come across lot of challenges and success. Before talking about one of our dreams which is fulfilled now, I shall give a brief description about Pudhiyadhor.. Urapakkam.Pudhiyadhor… Urapakkam is an organization started by the young bloods of CrescentEngineeringCollege by the inspiration of Narayanan Uncle. We have adopted a community of people in Urapakkam. The primary occupation of this community of people is astrology. They predict others future but fail to safe guard their children’s future. They didn’t understand the necessity of education. Once we started Pudhiyadhor.. it has become a part of the life of those kids. We help them in their studies and teach extra curricular activities like theatre play, bharathanatyam, classical music, karate, yoga, etc to improve their confidence. Our aim is to give all the opportunities to them to make them a v…

22 kids on the road

Recently I came to know about an incident which hurt me a lot. I thought to share it with you all. In order to prepare for the Pudhiyadhor.. Urappakkam summer camp, I and Sengadhir madam went to Tambaram Market to buy the required items. When the shop keeper was packing the items which we asked for, I and Shengadhir were discussing about the things happening in Urapakkam. The shop owner was listening to our conversation. He understood that we are from a social service organization. When we were about to leave after getting the items, he told something which shocked us. Two months before, around 22 children have been left on the road in midnight in a village which is few kilometers away from Tambaram. Those children have been brought in a van to that place from an orphanage. It seems that the organizers of that orphanage didn’t have enough money to take care of those children. So they have left them on the road. My opinion is: they should have asked for help from the government if they…
