When I was in school, I was one among the 5 chosen for republic day parade, at Delhi. Very young , a trip to Delhi was far important than the parade itself, which I realised later was a fallacy.. those few days were to change the course of my life in later days, when I was
seriously contemplating leaving the leftists movement (it was very difficult those days, as I was holding office right from my SFI days - a part of these harsh realities later was depicted in the Tamil magazine KALKI in a serial story); was growing up, and was keen on doing well

Wuhan - china virus , 2020 was a beginning - with breaks here and there ,without respite , the virus spread was and is scary. Today TN reports ,number of cases increasing , discharges are lesser, yet they're stopping testing for Omicron; vague statement stating that by the time
testing is completed they've recovered - I don't understand the logic - do you ? @thangapushpam03@pardhu_leo ? Temples are closed/ Normal life has now become a new normal which people seem to be forgetting - added to this was my surgery ,which another dimension to the new normal

The Bitter Truth !
Yesterday, a software guy welcomed his Japanese onsite coordinator to his office in Bengaluru, and it actually changed his life. Let him explain what happened.
Soon after receiving him at the airport with formal pleasantries, I took him in our company cab,
and in no time, we were already chugging along the busy roads of Bengaluru. As expected, we struck up a conversation starting with the weather, and gradually moved towards topics like development, cleanliness, etc.
I think he initially hesitated to say this, but after some

#Twitter I need to thank this platform for this where I learnt that #verified (whatever that means), except a couple of them, steal your tweet and people believe ,boy what knowledge!🤔; I also learnt that in matter of minutes people become seasoned phesphologists, economic expert
Sports journalists,advisors to the PM and also the opposition ,critics par excellence of art in all forms, experts on law ,especially the constitution(s), exponents of philately and what not. Boy oh! Boy it's a great learning ground indeed.
P.S. you want to spit on this tweet do

There are 2 things becoming evident , or is it 3 issues?
- it's now visibly evident that MKS has no control ,either within the party or in the government - the division among bureaucrats and uniformed services is now 3 pronged - the son, the son in law and the senior ministers
led by duraimurugan!
- the IT Cell is divided into 2 groups - one by the egg,and the styled demolisher of even huge corporates and finance ones,with their side kicks, the other ,yet again, by the son in law, who's abusing the state machinery in all in its formats;

#ChennaiRains2021 I played albeit a small but effective role in the deluge of 2015,in Madras..I need to acknowledge 3 facts/factors,then:-
BSNL worked round the clock to restore lines as quickly as possible;
Having committed a monumental error, the then ruling party jumped into
action, and their disaster management much more efficiently than the present one, whose intensions seem to be only photo ops; moving people, and putting them at safe points ,one must learn from people like Ms. Apoorva IAS, & another lady , Ms. Anu George, a prodigal young officer

#Insurance_Agents_HospitalInsurancedesks_insurers_patientandattendants, and let's add #IRDA the most useless body - as bad as the banking ombudsman: #MyExperiences2 , the intentions of this tweet is to make one aware of the ground reality as it exists and how people get played.
The saddest part is at the end of the day, the patient and attendants having undergone ignominy, humiliation, leave and they don't dare to raise their voice. This will be in 2or3parts,would be long and I hope people have the patience to go through it.
Never get carried away,with

#AirIndia_flip_flop I had joined GIC,nascent,fresh out of college, a direct recruit those days was considered a good omen(!): I had to attend a conference in the Sultanate of Oman, and GIC had a great policy - cadre wise(😭)- I travelled by train from Delhi to Bombay from where I
had fly into Muscat; till such time travel by train was by 1st class(my first as an adult)- no bedroll and all that. Landed in Bombay and my cousin took me home and the rest of the day was spent listening to how I should be dressed and the do's and dont's in a flight by my

Inspired by the tweet of @raaga31280; I don't drink or eat even eggs; my smoking picked up in high school, was with me till Pandemic 1; by the grace of God, except a tonsils operation when very young, and much later cataract, I've not had, any major health issue at all,except
a bout of typhoid in school; in a way I'm blessed; in early July this year, I had a severe bout of breathing problem. I thought it was hereditary, asthma, both my parents were afflicted with it, and my GP,put me onto a pulmonologist, who felt I should see a cardiologist - even at

There are 2 handles ,I admire, try not to miss out their tweets, as much as possible, but refrain from commenting on them. While I understand and am able to comprehend thier frustration- raising out expectations and belief ,and,each possibly voted Namo with a lot of it: while
this being my thoughts,personally I feel they're refusing to open their eyes to the larger canvass, one which involves more than mere Hindutava ideaology alone. We are a part of the world at large - not yet the world itself; appeasement would be an appropriate word,but it's not

TN politics as I understand it - while I'm really fond of the manner and style of both @ikkmurugan & @Selvakumar_IN - their narratives hit you hard and just on the belt level - personally my gut says ,for them to ensure this data is something that a common man understands, for
the strength of these Dravidian rascals specialise in false narratives of the same data,and let's grant it - they're past masters at this game. My gut feel states that these could a good role in the parliament elections - they need to change their operative styles; each a Don of

By the time I was assessed with a problem in my heart(some don't believe it - as they feel that I've no heart),both pre and post surgery has been painful. However,for the 1st time in the last 60 plus days,I slept like I've never done so in the last 60plus days,with very little
Discomfort,pain,or the excurating pain incurred in bringing the phlegm out, the doctors insisted on bringing the phlegm out,as they had used the ventilator during surgery ,I thank my doctor's , surgeon,nursing staff,my attendants,and,moreso, @SriRamya21 (whom I now call -

#Avarice,while I'll not blame anyone,for it's my own avarice ,that nearly killed me recently;the lesson I learnt was how well people ,who pretentious at every step,understand your avarice and make a killing, a brilliant strategy.. yes,I'll not deny my avarice,as it was my life
and physical health involved - and honestly I thank people who work in consortium, on such issues - the lesson was bitter,painful and above all a great lesson,indeed and I learnt helluva of a lot(more on this later); however I'm not one who lies down and take things as they're,

Mr Chief Minister of TN, many an occassion I've disagreed with (Retd). Justice K Chandru from the days of being a fellow member of SFI,same college, batchmate, to the time he was elevated as judge, when our war of words continued. His article pinned here tells you clearly that

One of the most underrated handles in SM, is this guy, @rspchary . I've been interacting with him for quite sometime now, sharing my feelings and thoughts on various issues; he has in his fingertips,every scheme announced by the center, vis a vis by Namo. You can anytime seek a
clarification on the scheme and it'll be handled ASAP; a soft spoken, mild mannered, but watch out if you put foot wrong; in fact , more than a few minutes he has been responsible for bringing my anger down towards people/issues. Never lets his right hand know what his left does,

#DMK the confrontation was to be expected. They came to power out of greed and with intentions of pent up vendetta of 10 years. It's obvious that they'll use every opportunity to undermine the center. In the assembly the direct misinterpretation of the constitution by the CM ,
himself, is an indication of things to come; the freebie culture has left the state penniless and by past experience there'll no new investments in the near future, inspite of all the drama. A surplus state on power a few months ago, is now reeling under; the average DMK person,
