As always.. this year too… the Advertisement War started at Ranganathan Street, T.Nagar, Chennai. Saravana Stores is hosting 4 models, when Jayachandran textiles fighting with 2 single movie heroines. Chennai silks went ahead with Radhika Sararth kumar, when Kumaran, Nalli and pothys too fighting for their share with personalities.

This year too SriDelvi textiles of Coimbatore is giving a tough fight with some great dance ad. :). So… for every AADI THALLUPADI (end of season sale in Tamil) Sale, these above said names, end with same format/type of ads.

For them, an ad for the AADI sale is
1. Minimum 2 Pretty girls on the frame and
2. Interesting song and dance with rich colors.

Watch this News…. and you will Understand, How Srilankan Government and Indian Media are trying to cheat the people of World. The objective of SLA is to divert the attention of International Bodies from Civilians being killed by SLA just by spreading this FALSE Prabhakaran’s death news.

If you don’t understand TAMIL, here is the Jist.
The body shown is not prabhakaran’s cos of the following reasons.
1. He doesn’t have big eyebrows, but the dead body has two big.
2. Prabhakaran is already 54 and the dead body looks like 40 years, with soft clean shaven skin.
2. If his body was taken from water only yesterday morning, how can they do a DNA test in 3 hrs, which generally takes 3-4 days
3. Day 1 SLA said, they killed the Tamil leader, when he was fleeing in an ambulance, but now, they are taken this body from deep waters.

Anyways…. He will show BACK that he is ALIVE.

I just finished reading this historical Tamil novel, dated back to 1960’s written by Kalki R Krishnamuthy, one of the pioneer novelists in TamilNadu.

This is the first novel of this magnitude, i have ever read, though i had access to small novels by sujatha and other novelists in Tamil. Kalki is just awesome and the way he explains a scene, in fact every scene is just awesome. I wonder anyone had done that in the past or even, any one can do in the future. The way Kalki mixed the hostorical characters in his own style with the learnings he had through books, is just fantastic.

The story line of Parthiban Kanavu is way back to 7th Century AD, when Chola Kings were under the control of Pallava Kings of ancient TamilNadu. Parthiban, a Chola King, dreams to have an Independent Chola kingdom and the story ends when Vikraman, son of Parthiban, makes it happen. Thanks Mercy for lending me a copy.

Now.. its Sivagamiyin Sabadham… in the queue. Happy Reading.
