MAARO – Kill the Thought says Happy Dussehra

Happy Dussehra!! As per Indian tradition, we treat and visit Durga Goddess as an undefined power of universe creation, which in turn as no gender difference!! I believe our MAARO has this sense of power with the idea of killing that thought of the social evil.

So, wish me good luck @ my campaign, https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/maaro-kill-the-thought

Here is one good news! The popular TV (ZEE Telugu) anchor Pradeep Machiraju supports MAARO – Kill the Thought!!!

MAARO – Kill the Thought

Finally, I’m going to fulfill my childhood wish. That is, to make a movie.

MAARO is going to be a  thriller short film structured around the sexual assaults on women and it lets the audience to think about a solution to eradicate this social problem in a sublime manner with a question if there is any fear of the law….

It suggests that one has to be frightened to think about attempting these sexual assaults on women rather than the aftereffects of those attempts. That’s why, the tag line, Kill the Thought and the title MAARO being the Hindi word meaning ‘Beat’.

Temples

Why do people visit temples?
I don’t know but I visit .. to view the architecture of the temple, to know about the stories belong to the various Gods/ Goddesses (some stories might be interesting), want to be secluded from the routine work/program to have peace, want to observe/watch various bhaktas and archakas, to see the puja style and want to listen to the vibrations of the chanting of mantras by archakas..
In addition to that I pray God for my family and for the persons who helped me in my life..

Cent per cent

I thank God for giving great health to my son, Aarush who secured cent per cent attendance for the academic year 2013-14!

I still remember

“…So you sent out your grand ma in a grand manner..How old she?”
“Um. Some 85 to 90 years..”
“Hey man..long way she has gone through..forget it…i’m sorry for your loss too.. Dont mind me saying, its good that she is gone…and…”
“No..no..it’s fine…”

It was a small but informal conversation between me and my team mate when he came back to office after his grandma’s funeral.

It brought back my memories with my grand mother. I dont know if I was affectionate with my grandma but I can surely say that she was very affectionate with me. She was a farmer’s wife and herself a farmer managing both home affairs as well as helping my grand father at the farms. We used to go over there to our village, Mandavalli in Krishna district every summer and had fun. She always paid special attention to me when compared to my three sisters. May be it could be because i’m the only grandson or they put my name derived from her husband’s name, Gangayya or I used to help her during harvesting seasons or male dominant society at that time or I dont know. Special attention occurred in so many ways like – she used to give only one egg to my sisters but two for me; Allowed me only to go and get mangoes from our farms; Used to come to the school during interval every day, when i was studying first standard in my village and to feed me with omlets; She used to go by walk for five kilometers to make my dresses stitched; and this list grows and this post will go beyond the limits if I keep on telling.
And you know, she never lost her temper with me. In fact, i was a very tough and spoilt brat during my childhood. 🙂

She did so many good things for me. But I did fail to fulfill her wish. Her wish was to see me married before she dies. So sorry for her.

Hmm.

I still remember her excitement when she took a ride with me on my first motor bike.
I still remember the taste of her mango avakaya pickle and Ariselu
I still remember how she served me when I was affected with chicken-pox
……
……
and

I still remember the way she ran her fingers through my hair.
I still remember. I still remember.

gannu laanti kannulu

గన్ను లాంటి కన్నులున్న జున్ను లాంటి పిల్ల

నవ్వు తోటి నన్ను పేల్చి పారిపోతే ఎల్ల

పిల్ల … నువ్వు లేని జీవితం నల్ల రంగు అంటుకున్న కాగితం….

Gannu laanti kannulunna junnu laanti pilla

Navvvu thoti nannu paelchi paaripothe ella

Pilla… nuvvu leni jeevitham, nalla rangu antukunna kaagitham….

Have you ever teased or impressed your girl friend like above? Or even witnessed some one doing it? 🙂 You can do it now, if not.

Now a days I am listening to this song from Gabbar Singh. What I liked is – the lyrics of this song. Very hard to find such kind of lines these days where only music dominates.

I recommend you to listen to it once.

Finally

I bit my tongue while eating. Got soap in my eye while washing my face. I could not get the desk out of the table in search of something. Got sprain in my ring finger while trying to move the sofa to somewhere else. Someone hurt my feelings. A representative in an organization barked at me, over telephone when I asked a question.
My day was really crappy until …..I saw the wonderful look of sheer glee on one little girl’s face as she was about to eat her ice cream.
I was wallowing in my own self-pity today and seeing the joy of life on that lil gal’s face made me realize once again… that the world does not revolve around me.

Guess who he is…..
