Rhyming Values

dedicated to all the sincere nerds , who never helped me - Shivani , Arjun , Diya and Nandhini! =)

There once lived an urban broad,
She didn't understand why 
she was called a fraud?!

Her qualities included helpfulness
She never ceased to create happiness,
She always had her books open,
and her eyes sharpened...

They asked; She gave
hence their lives were perfectly paved,
However,she was not Saved!
....As she had misbehaved!! =O

When asked to deceive the trust,
she didn't yield to the thrust
that was when their patience BURST,
because copying was a bombarding bust!

Yes , She HELPED her friends,
by succumbing to peer trends
even if friendship is prominent 
honesty is always more dominant!!

If this is orally pleasant
u r COOL,
If this morally pleasing,
 u r nobody's fool

              With a DROOL =P

Chillax Games

After a week full of overwhelming responses , pity and motivation , I bounce back with my bro Yajur , the 'co writer' of this blog post , on a full scale fun post. One a personal note, All is well =) and yep I am enjoying life. Again.

So we are going to present some online games to you! Games which strike a personal chord , and which have some emotional history connected to it. As per yajur's choice we started with the ever great , the perfect mixture! The Bartender!

We both and yuyu discovered this game in the kool , btw , that website was introduced to us by our respectful mother. =D Wanna know what the drinks are? come here and impress our great bartender by mixing the perfect cocktails! Wanna make him play guitar for you? or do you want him to scream fire? Do the cocktail! ;) The most impressive thing about this game is the bartender's face! =D As dead as a zombie.
Hot tip - The perfect drink has vodka , cranberry juice , lemon , ice  and triple sec to it. The proportions have to be found by you. We can't give away everything!

Next , the cool and featured detective RPG game. First discovered by us in 2005. The flash version is more recommended as it is more interactive , sleuth noir can be opted for those who want to manage politics . It is kind of like the featured Facebook games where you can upgrade your character , however the specialty here is that you can SOLVE cases by visiting suspects , asking contacts and of course lock picking! Skills like charm , intimidation , research can be improved and of course you GAIN MONEY (yajur touch)
Hot tip - Any one with a real alibi is not guilty. Even if the murder weapon is found at their house , you cannot incriminate them. 

To all the love birds there =D This is yajur's FAVORITE. You are the manager of the inn , and basically your job is to flirt with all the girls there and somehow befriend them , gift them , impress , win a date and finally win them over. Not like the other date games. This has different characters , who you have to impress.Another game to enjoy is of course speed dating.Basically this games will teach you the important lessons of how to find love in life and how to answer suitably.Personally both of us have spent a whole day to finish the game!!Although we couldn' least you guys do it =P
Hot tip - Just that all the girls are hot in their own ways! ;) if u consider throwing watermelons and gobbling bananas is looked upon as hot =P Remember to make good use of your energy.

OK. The action dudes are angry now , we get it. So , here is the ultimate game for you all ! Matrix Rampage.Don't get it? A guy in the black suit, chairs , benches, flower pots ,guns and everything else to break the enemies heads? Then why waste the time ? The guys will come , you will kill and kill. After practicing ahimsa all the time this is a chillaz dude! break! =) Enjoy , but don't get carried away! B)
Hot tip - Dabbang! Just kill =P Maybe you can be cautious about the no. of people on your floor , the stick is the best close range weapon and the chair is better than the desk!

.......and here come's the different version of Mario , KOOPA in koopa's REvEnGe. To all the KFI teachers out there rolling their eyes on the violence and 'revenge' words used - SOrrY. This is only for fun , in heart we don't want to kill em! =) So in this modern mario we have to help the sweet turtle , cross various obstacles to the door. Jump on 'em , spit fire or run way to protection.This is a favorite - but we are not the exact experts when it comes to advanced levels!
Hot tip - In the first round , if you go left way and jump on the brick , you can take the orange lotus thing to gain fire and of course SKIP a few levels.

So guys yeah! Try out these games and when you get bored tell us , we will recommend the 'pallanguzhis' and 'paramapadhams' which are what are our nativity takes us too =) ( Peethe happy??!) If you cry about the small size , well good things come in small packages , and yajur doesn't have such a big brain.
Surely there is another package coming up , with Play station games! hopefully not co -written! =D
( It was actually fun!!)

My end of the deal - the co writer is Yajur Jayaprakash and his blog is  linked to his name. It has some pretty cool posts B) Do check it out and don't forget the posts!

                                                                                                Sis and bro
                                                                              ....yeah. with awesomeness and seminess.

Semi's sad story

 The alarm went off at 6 AM. However , I was already ready for it! What has happened to my life in the past 10 days?! Here I was having a bath with hot water (!) , preparing myself for my first day of  school in Chettinad Vidyashram!! =O Yet the picture of me walking parallel to the KFI roads , bubbling with energy , expectations and dreams and inhaling the fresh air , is still lingering in the back of my mind......Life as surely changed for me, and it is upto ONLY me now to make it better or worse.
Somewhere during the May twenties , when I was finally starting to think that holidays can be started. My room had finally been re decorated and , I was in love with new bed which was wood and red to my liking!! I was reading the Dark summit , a non fiction and as usual an earphone was gifting music to my ears...what more can I ask for? 15  more days of holidays , an awesome school to go to (kfi) and I had already befriended everyone! Nothing can go wrong.....
No! Life gave the answer to me - in the hard way. My dad came and lied next to me in the comfortable bed , and was like " You are enjoying your holidays eh?" and I was like " What else can I do?" . All of you must know this - we are a family of big mouths , except my mom who is very discreet. He gave me the grin and revealed that KFI has sent a letter stating that I was not eligible for joining their school as I had not written the board exams .
That was when everything started coming reeling down. My old school BVM , had not allowed the students to take the board examinations and assured us that taking school exams can also provide me admission in other board schools....All I can say of that is that we have the proof and can sue the school for not checking the rules. Bottom line - SCHOOL CONDUCTED EXAMS DO NOT LET YOU CHANGE TO ICSE BOARDS.
I am not going to elaborate my hate for bvm here , after all it has helped me  for the past 12 years and I am sourly disappointed that such a huge institution was so irresponsible in such an important matter like the board exams. I really really hope that they realize this and amend their mistakes by next year...after all CCE is a new phenomenon and mistakes are bound to happen - with my life.
Turning back to those horrible days , when I awaited the result - not my exam ones but for the letter from ICSE or CBSE telling that everything was okay , were indeed HORRIBLE. The experience has proven that purgatory is worse than hell.Every morning I would wake up .... and immediately remember that my verdict was still hanging like an albatross from my neck . Anguish was what filled my days and tears which were considered stupid covered my cheeks....In the end I was just begging the highness for a result .
In the meantime my results came , I had done extremely well , a 9.8 out of 10 ( my style to fall short of .2 =P ) and this fueled my anger towards the system , which was causing jeopardy in my life. Frankly , I wanted to murder Kapil Sibal for bringing in something in a Beta version , this is not the computer to just check , students future are at stake!
A day after my result , I woke up at 12 as usual , only this time a phone woke me up! It was from my aunt  she was like " Chammu , we are in CV. We just spoke with the principal and she was very impressed with your marks and your ambition to pursue humanities. She has agreed to give you admission and is really eager to meet you! " and cut the phone before I could shout "what about KFI??"
Life was a daze. It has been my dream right from 5th standard to join kfi , my bro studies there and my mom works there. My kalari payattu classes were in the school's assembly hall , I have attended the lunch there informally many a times , right from the start of 10th , whenever dejected while studying , I have treated myself to the imaginary classes in KFI , everyone smiling , to motivate me....I know all the teachers  and more importantly I have lived all my life for that moment where I would enter the school as a student....which I was not going to now - forever.
HOW CANT THIS HAPPEN TO ME???? I was in the car , going to CV.
My mom - " You  are lucky , you are getting the stream you wanted!"
Me- ( with maximum effort to stop the voice breaking) kfi....
mom - We received a final letter from ICSE stating that you cannot....
Thank you mom , you have removed the necessity for me to speak , I am CRYING now , we were nearing CV and the driver was going slowly , giving me time to regain my composure. It took all that was inside me to stop crying and meet the principal. I got the admission in a day - a world record. All because of my grade - which I had control of.
The foremost thing I am going to do , once I become a lawyer , is stop THIS from happening. I cannot let this to happen to anyone else - the grueling 45 minutes of interview ,the wait and the happy news that I got ADMISSION!!! The socializing , Mamandur trip where I received a lot friends , inboxing Karunya who I decided as my BFF without seeing or talking with her directly....the sharing we had! <3 , choosing the subjects , getting specimen copies from the teachers , career counselling from my class teacher , the privileges I enjoyed! =D , the dreams , hope , faith and happiness! After all this! Like a 'niruthunga' (stop!) right before someone ties the thali my biggest dream bubble was burst with a huge thorn .
Now I am in CV. I have attended 2 days of school. I am regarded as a quite , silent girl....maybe because I can't talk. I am still in the shock . How many times in a million will this happen? and why ME? Is it wrong to love something so dearly?? I cannot fathom anything. I got the marks , the words to speak in an interview. I won the cup , given it and how can you snatch it just because the referee was BLIND?
Before this sad story gets a violent twist I am signing off!!
