Slumdog Millionaire - Nice Songs

I was astonished by this site ( It has songs from most movies for hearing and downloading. I heard O Saya from this movie on this site.

Great Lyrics - mayil iRagae mayil iRagae

I am amazed reading such a lyrics...Missing soma:)

Ulaga mozhiyil varum
ellamay neer ezhuththu
kaadhal dhaan kal ezhuththu anbe..

Ok,in English, this translates to:

"Everything in every language
are written in Water
Love alone is written in stone, My Love"

I was wondering why i could not catch this lyrics (till i read the lyrics from a site) when i have been listening to this song over 200 times over the last 2 years. Then today when i heard the song again in youtube, i realized why? The singers for this song were horrible. The names look like tamil names to me, but they have killed this song in everyway. Sorry ARR, i have liked the fact that you have introduced great singers, but this choice is ugly, though the singers voice is great, their pronunciation needs improvement. The song details are as follows:

Movie Name: Aa Aah (2005)
Singer: Madhushree, Naresh Iyer
Music Director: Rahman AR
Year: 2005
Actors: Nila, Surya S J

148 LB to 166 LB

During the last 3 months, i have been consistently increasing my weight. I was 148LBs 6 months back.This increased to 154 and stabilized there for a while. When the weight increased to 157, I got tensed and tried GM diet and cut down on Bagel and came back to 154. But, with overeating 3-4 times a week, i came to 160 and stabilised at 160. For the last one week, my scale is showing 163 and i peaked 163.8 2 days back. Shame on me, i was writing some jingle like this in my sleep:

"Keep off the Cream (cheese)
to achieve the Dream"

"Water for thirst; Salad for hunger and Aleve for head ache"

Relationships Defined Implicitly

I have noted that certain relationships in life are implicitly defined:

1. Father and mother loves their children unconditionally till the children get to certain age. However bad the children behave, parents tend to love them. But after certain age, say 13 or 14 years, parents expect kids to behave in the way parents want. If kids don't behave that way, they start to hate their children or act in a way that does not emit love from eyes.

These days kids at age 2-6 are known to throw tantrums and hit / kick people around to express their anger or irritation or even use bad / disrespectful words, however parents always have love on their eyes when they look at their kids, upto an age. However, if kids do any of these things after 13-14 years, parents tend to build up hatred towards their kids. I guess, God has created the world in such a way, that some relationships are implicitly defined. PARENTS SHOULD LOVE KIDS TO CERTAIN AGE.

In earlier days, there were implicit definitions for all relations. Kids should respect parents. Young generations should respect elder generation. Young people should not argue with elders even if elders are wrong.Wife should always be subdued to husbands whims and fancies. Husband can hit / scold wife and wife should not retaliate. These days, such things are no longer followed.

Apple iBangle

Apple Design new concept design for an Apple mp3 player. It is called the iBangle and it is unique as well as ground breaking. It has no screen and it has some other really cool features.

You see that blue inner band? Push a tiny button on the side and it fills with air, expanding to fit snugly around your wrist.

Apple iBangle's a multi-touch track pad for easy navigation, and the audio finds its way to your ears via a couple of wireless earbuds.
Ear buds with the annoying cords won't be found here, as the audio is transmitted via wireless ear buds. There's a multi-touch track pad for easy navigation. It also has a few additional buttons for music control. Although the iBangle doesn't have a screen, designer Gopinath Prasana figures you can navigate just fine with it's audio-oriented navigation system.

It was 2 days back when i got a drum from my son Rishi from Walmart. My son is learning colors and so he was saying Blue Drum, Yellow Drum and Red Drum. Then, for some strange reason, he caught on to the Red color and he kept repeating RED DRUM, REDDRUM, RED RUM, RED RUM...As he was repeating RED RUM,it started getting so scary. Anybody who has seen "The Shining" will understand what i am saying. For those of you who has not seen the movie, RED RUM, when seen in a mirror will look like MUR DER (MURDER).

Haagen Dazs ice cream

After being addicted to the Mango ice cream from Haagen Dazs, i tried this ice cream. This is possibly the closest taste to Heaven.

Flavor Notes: Rich, sumptuous waves of cream mingle with evocative glimpses of tropical honey. The rare and delicate texture of the Lehua honey is entirely different from any honey you've ever tasted.

Inspiration: Lehua honey comes from the remote volcanic slopes of Mauna Loa on the Big Island of Hawaii. There, honeybees gather nectar from the Ohia tree's fragrant Lehua blossoms. These beautiful red flowers are the unique flavor source for this rare, amber honey.

Food Pairings: Serve on a freshly baked Belgian waffle, then try to resist the aroma of warm waffle mingling with the cool ice cream and tropical honey.

Wine Pairings: A rich and balanced Sauternes from France.

Bagel Deaddiction

I have not been eating bagel for a week. I don't feel the habit controlling me anymore. I will keep posted if i start again. My weight has been consistently showing 160Lbs and that is worrying me. I should be right at 150Lb.

I am trying to run at least a mile everyday. Lets see how it goes.

There`s no dollar sign on a piece of mind

Yes, thats the powerful line in the song "Chicken Fried" by Zac Brown. I have been hearing this song on Y100 today. Its really amazing. The singer sings this song in a quite powerful voice.

Scroll the video by 1 min and 20 sec to start seeing the song...

You know I like my chicken fried
Cold beer on a Friday night
A pair of jeans that fit just right
And the radio up
Well I was raised up beneath the shade of a Georgia pine
And that`s home you know
Sweet tea pecan pie and homemade wine
Where the peaches grow
And my house it`s not much to talk about
But it`s filled with love that`s grown in southern ground
And a little bit of chicken fried

Cold beer on a Friday night
A pair of jeans that fit just right
And the radio up
Well I`ve seen the sunrise
See the love in my woman`s eyes
Feel the touch of a precious child
And know a mother`s love

Well its funny how it`s the little things in life that mean the most
Not where you live or the car you drive or the price tag on your clothes
There`s no dollar sign on a piece of mind this I`ve come to know
So if you agree have a drink with me
Raise you glasses for a toast
To a little bit of chicken fried

Cold beer on a Friday night
A pair of jeans that fit just right
And the radio up
Well I`ve seen the sunrise
See the love in my woman`s eyes
Feel the touch of a precious child
And know a mother`s love

I thank god for my life
And for the stars and stripes
May freedom forever fly, let it ring.
Salute the ones who died
The ones that give their lives so we don`t have to sacrifice
All the things we love
Like our chicken fried

Cold beer on a Friday night
A pair of jeans that fit just right
And the radio up
Well I`ve seen the sunrise
See the love in my woman`s eyes
Feel the touch of a precious child
And know a mother`s love
