#poetry : நான் ஒரு காகிதத்தின் அடிமை ☠

நான் ஒரு காகிதத்தின் அடிமை
அது ஊமையை பேச வைக்கும் உண்மையை உளற வைக்கும் உளறலை தெளிய வைக்கும் தெளிவை மிரள வைக்கும்
நான் ஒரு காகிதத்தின் அடிமை
அது பெண்ணை ஆன் ஆக்கும் ஆணை அடிமை ஆக்கும் அடிமையை கொள்ள வைக்கும் அய்யகோ! இது வாழ்க்கையின் கோல் ஆகும்!
நான் ஒரு காகிதத்தின் அடிமை அது கண்ணீரை கடல் ஆக்கும் கடலை கசண்டாக்கும் கசண்டை குடிக்க வைக்கும் குடியை கோபுரத்தில் ஏத்தும்

நான் ஒரு காகிதத்தின் அடிமை ... கண்டேன், கண்டெடுத்தேன், கசங்கி போனேன் அந்தோ பரிதாபம் !


EXPLANATION
நான் ஒரு காகிதத்தின் அடிமை I’m enslaved to a piece of paper.
அது ஊமையை பேச வைக்கும் It can make someone talk (who would otherwise not have spoken in that situation) உண்மையை உலர வைக்கும் It can make truth become a lie உளறலை தெளிய வைக்கும் It can make someone speak up, who would otherwise have confused you of what the truth is தெளிவை மிரள வைக்கும் It can make someone who tells the truth to shut up, so everyone is confused what the truth is
அது பெண்ணை ஆன் ஆக்கும் It can make a person who is womanly (here, I don’t mean ‘woman’ as a gender, but as a set of…

Race to the bottom of humanity

It's a struggle to write this post. Because it is not easy to accept that humanity has reached a point where such a post is necessitated. Today, technology feels so ubiquitous. It has invaded our lives like no other. There's no escape. Today, I can lead my life having just one computer (or even just a mobile device). That's it. I don't need to go anywhere physically. I don't need to meet anyone face-to-face, even for years together, whilst still being 'socially' active ironically. The more I'm within the four walls (at my computer), the more I can be 'social' ... without even speaking to anyone, without even seeing anyone in person. What a wonder! You no more need words. Earlier, you didn't need words with your closed ones, because expressions and touch spoke much more. But now you don't need words because all you need is a keypad ... bits and bytes speak much more. You can shut yourself up for the rest of your life in a 5ftx5ft room. T…

Poetry : மூடி இருந்தால் தான் பெண்மைக்கு அழகு ...

மூடி இருந்தால் தான் பெண்மைக்கு அழகு கூடி இருந்தால் தான் குடும்பத்துக்கு அழகு  ஏக்கம் இருந்தால் தான் காதலுக்கு அழகு
தேடல் இருந்தால் தான் வாழ்க்கைக்கு அழகு

Buddhist Musings : It's not your eyes that see ...

It's not your eyes that see
.. it's your mind!

Thou art the beautiful woman ...

On Man's Mind ... one's best friend ... one's greatest enemy ...

Thou art the beautiful womanThou art the handsome manThou art the blooming flowerThou art the fiery fireThou art the every man’s desireThe more I try to get thee… the more thee control meThou art so tiny… that I cannot find youThou art so large… that I can’t reach youThou art  so tight… that I can’t relieve youThou art so fragile … that I can’t catch youI surrender to you… Oh no! That’ll be chaosYou surrender to me & I hear “Oh no! Never!”Will this war ever die?… or will death mean its end?Oh Mind!Thou art the closestYet the farthest

Buddhist Musings : When thought becomes thoughtless

"Driving is so painful", I murmured, honking at the two-wheeler who cut across and my sudden brake saved just inches from hitting his bike. This was more than a year ago. These qualms surprisingly vanished recently. We were driving on a rainy night laughing & singing together. I hit a sudden brake, but this time, in my mind; "Ah! Why am I not fretting & fuming now?? It's raining heavily and the traffic is thick!" I realized then that I have now is reached a point where driving has become thoughtless to me. That is, it has moved from being thought to instinct, and I think this is when I truly should've gotten the license! ;) This is the true in other aspects too. When can you really claim to be a developer? ; when you can code without having to put in a conscious effort for each line you type in. Let's say you are a product manager & you are passing by where a QA guy is checking out some screen flow. Instinctively suppose it has to strike you…
