The novel ends hanging in the air, leaving a lot unsaid. Clearly, that is.
I would like to think that Velan survived the ordeal and attained the peace of mind that he was after finally. Little has been documented about the fate of the hero. I wish the author was alive today to throw some light into this.
Bangalore sent us off in heavy rain. Pondicherry welcomed us with scorching sun during the day and thunderstorm during the night.
Pondicherry, which is just 6 hours away from Bangalore, shares some similarities with Goa – slow pace of life and nice people; except for the usual exception of autowalas and bike rental dealers.
Pondi scores over Goa in its ubiquitous availability of vegetarian hotels where food is clean and cheap. We discovered a Malayali restaurant owner who was serving tummy full of Chicken biriyani with three pieces of chicken and a hard boiled egg for just Rs. 60/-.
Since most of the visiting tourists – domestic and foreign – are devotees of Sri Aurobindo Ashram, the ambience around Heritage town is serene throughout the day.
Renting a two wheeler is highly advised. Almost all the places are located in and around M. G. Road; except for Auroville which is about 15kms away.
A visit to Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Immaculate Conception Cathedral, Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, a walk in The Promenade, Serenity beach and Paradise Beach are some activities that can be done.
Aimlessly roaming around the streets are highly recommended. While visiting the beaches to watch sunrise is highly NOT recommended since local people are used to relieving themselves in the beaches.
… the last time I wrote something really good? A couple of years. Oh my gosh!
Scramble! Scramble! Lets cook one up now!
Thinking hat on!
We all love PIXAR for what they have given us – time and again. But what is happening of the PIXAR that we know and is fond of.
Event though I am a die hard fan of PIXAR, the recent outing of PIXAR with BRAVE hasn’t exactly excited me. It is good; but not up to the quality standards of PIXAR itself.
There was a time when PIXAR films would always make me wonder “What are they eating to come up with this story!” But sadly, no more. After Ratatouille, their original stories did not produce the “wow” PIXAR films usually comes bundled with.
But luckily the PIXAR shorts continues to charter fresh and exciting waters. If Day & Night was brilliant, La Luna is mind-blowing.
I just hope with The Good Dinosaur, PIXAR’s habit of being fabulous is restored.

“You are responsible for this.Apologise”,she barked. “What did I do now?”,asked me perplexed. “This pimple.You are responsible.”
“Don’ talk to me. I will lose my concentration.” She barked. Wow! Easy tigress. Was that a compliment?
“girl, you are every man’s dream; including mine”
I am good at all the things I am not supposed to be.
The best part is wiping her tears off and making her laugh.
