23rd Oct ‘13, 6.30 am at Chennai:
Rattling of my mobile alarm disturbs my dream as usual. Aww!
I snoozed it with a huge smile, in contradiction to the usual grumble. The secret behind the smile was the fact that I had planned to take off for the day, on account of personal work. The extra 5 minutes nap seemed like a drop of drizzle in a dry land.
I was out of bed, at my window enjoying each sip of my bed-coffee and delighted by the drizzle. The usual hastiness was lost.
Later I was busy with my daily drama and settled for breakfast by 7.45am. Wow! It was delicious. But, there was nothing special, the usual dosa with chutney combo. What made it so delicious today? Ah! There was no added ingredient. It was my relaxed mind and the ample time I had to spare on.
I then dropped a message to my TL and started performing all that I had planned for the day. It was quiet a busy day with project-bank-cooking-shopping-reading-blah blah n blah. When I felt, my plans were perfectly implemented I checked my watch; it was 4.00pm. I rechecked to confirm whether my watch was working.
Almost for eight hours I had been running around; neither was I, tired nor bored. My heart raced thinking of the daily status of mind. It had three options – 1.To get overloaded with confusion; 2.To become empty with boredom; or 3.To be dumped with tiredness. But, today it was completely an alien feel. After days I had the same chilled out mind that was capable of thinking wild fantasies.
Ultimately, I realized what I had been missing for days now. Even though I like my work and have fun at workplace, I had been missing something. May be that’s what I love. Love to do. Love to pursue.
Let me sign off for now & work out plans to retrieve what I have been missing!
Adapt to change quickly!
Be ready to change quickly, again & again….
If all these can be said, realized & urged to be implemented – All in an hour!!
Will you be amazed???
Most of us will be. That is what this book is done to me & is doing to many. A crystal clear, simple story for all ages. “Who moved my cheese?” will make you run behind your piece of cheese.
Out in a maze four little creatures hunt for cheese & succeed in the run. They enjoy for a while. But, time is not same ever. One fine day they discover, that there is no more cheese in their station.
How do they react to this change?? Spend an hour to know it.
Meanwhile, here’s your part of Interpretation.
Life is the Maze. The four characters are the simple & complex thoughts within us. The cheese is what we yearn for in our life.
How would you react?? Which thought will be fed first??
FOR ALL, who have a optimistic approach & are ready to welcome Change.

With Loads of Love,
We got to lose something to get something better. We all know that. But sometimes, we have to lose something best to get something that is yet another best. You may ask why. Simply because, someone said, ‘Continuous growth is better than static perfection’ and I agree with it.
If everyone one of us stays contented with what we have, probably the terms like invention, discoveries, innovation, etc might not have existed. Even the word growth would have remained less meaningful.
So how do you think inventions & innovations happen? Not all of can become Newton(s), only by watching an apple fall. It all begins with a thirst, thirst for wanting more & a passion, passion to know more. These are the seeds, when nurtured the right way become winnings. Shall we stop with it? Or should we move ahead in search of something bigger? The static perfectionist(s) stop here. Others come, lets GROW.
With the winning on hand, let’s be happy. Let’s keep flying until we settle with dissatisfaction. A HAPPY DISSATISFACTION. Happy for the success & dissatisfaction for the thirst. Now there is this drama, between heart & brain. Play a 20-20 & pass on carefully so the outcome makes you ask WHAT NEXT? If you reach this phase, then you are there. Now its time to JUMP OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE, face challenges, take up opportunities and excel your previous excellence.
Let Go , the beautiful butterflies , so you can have better view of the flowers
I’m not much of television person. Exceptions to reality shows that share time with my dinning plates. From recent times I’ve been watching Neengalum Vellalam Oru Kodi (NVOK), a reality show hosted by actor, Prakash Raj. We get to see this multi-faced actor in yet another role. Hats off, for he is doing justice to this too. Wondering how a person can perfectly fit into all suits with so much ease & also make a mark in people’s mind.
Having seen some informative, few emotional but ever entertaining episodes, yesterday was one show I enjoyed a lot with actor Sivakarthikeyan on the hot seat. He is such a witty person one couldn’t resist laughing loud when hearing to him. This multi-talented humble person has lots of credits to his name, which he declares with simplicity. From a mimic artist-to-host-to-an actor, he has travelled a long way, yet claims this as his start. Hope to see many more feathers in his cap.
Sharing the show clip. Watch & have fun.!!
Part II awaited!!
Best Wishes to
