Tamizh kazhagam

A thought that inspires you to great deeds needs to be cherished and kept alive. As a result of a friend's whatsapp text that contained a link to a Barathiyar song, we founded a three member club for Tamizh.

We discussed Barathiyar at length on Friday, August 15th and eventually ended up watching the video below.

Yaar Barathiyar

We hope to meet more often. I don't want to rave about the club but I'm quite pleased with ourselves.

Selfies of the good kind


Have you ever observed yourself while playing a game that you are good at? You are at your subconscious best. You multitask, beat your own high scores and remain quite oblivious to the thrill of winning.

Have you observed yourself while you, for the lack of a better word, 'stink' in a game? Your conscious effort to get better at it is met with a stronger force called the opponent. I recently found a number game called the 2048. Quite popular one, that game. Every time I fail, I start the next trial with the belief that I will conquer it. But in the end.. ah well, I started this sentence with a 'Every time I fail'. So you see, I have convinced myself of never being able to solve it and yet I get back to it. The games at which I stink are the games I feel very alive in. Counts as a reason to not fair well in the silliest of games right? Right.
