Beat the Heat

OK Children.Now I will share some awesome tips to beat the summer heat. Listen carefully.

Enthu guy from the audience:- Hello Hello Stop! Who asked you to give us free tips??

Huh! Who has to ask. Boss Half of my name is Summer. I am super qualified to give summer tips. And these are all tested OK tips. Please Listen.

The first one, is, ‘Spend time with Kids’. Now you should be careful when you select the kids. If you select anyone above 4 years they will call you “Aunty/Uncle” and that’s not cool. That’s the opposite of cool. That is like sun stopping by earth and doing gangnam style dance on your head. Not cool.Play with small kids. Ask them to tell stories in their mazhalai(baby talk) voice. The cute thing about their stories is they will include the same characters from your story which you had told them a day back and for an hour they just keep on adding characters and the story will end with some great moral like ” summerscript you are my thotho kutti(puppy in tamil baby language) or I am your kaakaa kutti(baby crow) . But once this activity starts you cannot stop it unless the story teller falls asleep in a magic way.

Second one is, go out at 1030 PM, get an icecream and start eating. What’s so cool about it you may ask. Don’t eat it like a boring adult. Let it stain your clothes. Let it  melt and drip. At the end flash a wide grin at your staring husband. Believe me you feel so cool!!

Third one is some serious stuff. Take bath only when the sun is not visible. If you could not, and if it’s past 10 AM, then open the hot water tap and take bath. The water from your storage heater is much much cooler than the one coming from the overhead tank.

Open your fridge, put your head inside the veg basket and pretend search for veggies for a longgg time.

Watch popular hollywood movies  dubbed in your mother tongue. One hour of guaranteed laughter.

Drink rosemilk,Nannari sarbath, lemon juice and eat lot of yellow yellow mangoes. (What! I told you this is a serious talk full of genuine tips)

Stay cool guys! Agni nakshatram is not far, follow these and stay cool!





And I came back running .. renew this space.

Recently one of our senior project member had come to see us. He knows everything about our project. Everything means everything. But what attracted me more was not his knowledge but his behavior. He was calm all the time. He waited till we finished talking- no interruption. He didnot complain about anything -pollution, mosquitoes or the food. He asked us doubts. The way he answered/cleared our doubts, you can never find out if your question was a brilliant one or a stupid one.Some people are great !

Nirai kudam thathumbadhu (Fully filled pot does not spill) is so true! 


I completed Ponniyin Selvan. I am proud. When Ponniyin Selvan was introduced, I thought he is my favorite. But I was so wrong. Now that I completed it, my favorites are still Vandiyathevan and Azhwarkadiyan. I will talk more about it later.

If someone sees you reading ponniyin selvan in TN, you become an instant-hero.


I had a wonderful birthday this year 🙂


Amma is not well. I am shuttling between chennai and Bangalore. Nothing to worry. Hope she recovers soon.


If you are in chennai and if it is a full moon day, go out at 4:40 AM. The moon will be so big. Seriously! When I saw it was so big as my grandpa’s plate. Never seen such a big moon!


Don’t believe what people say about your weight. Seriously. And don’t believe your brain too.


I am thinking I should follow few things.

-> Work while you work, play while you play.

-> Just be calm

-> Don’t keep on complaining. No use because most of the time you are not talking to the right person.

-> Do it and do it with your whole heart.

It is not very difficult to follow these I feel. Because I see/talk to people who follow these every single day. I am going to try.


Take care. Have a good day!
