‘Scare Me In Sixty Seconds Or Less’

This little girl is Maria. She was five years old when she was brutally murdered by her own father. She was tortured and her eyes were gouged out and finally killed.

After her death, she returned as a ghost to avenge her father. This photograph was captured by a photographer who witnessed this shocking incident.

He later went to his studio to develop the film to see exactly how the girl looked like. As soon he saw the picture, a chill ran down his spine and felt that something was wrong. Just then he heard a knock on his door. He was trembling with fear when he heard it. He stood still for a solid minute but the knocking kept continuing and it became louder every passing second.

At last, he gained the courage and went ahead to open the door. He turned white as soon as he saw the sight. The girl from the photograph was standing right at his door smiling at him creepily. The next day the photographer was found dead at his house with his eyes gouged out.

The legend is that, the girl will knock on people’s door who sees this picture and kill them exactly the way she was murdered.

Sounds funny right? I don’t believe in all these things. I mean, who in this age believes in ghosts and stuffs. Even you’ve seen this picture now. Did anything happen to you now? Nothing right?

OK wait, there’s someone knocking at my door. I’ll be back soon. Take care till then. Won’t you?

Exams Are Like…

There are many memes on the subject – poor student sweating out in the examination hall.

These memes do get a fair share of responses when posted. It is interesting to look at these responses elicited by this one – they reveal the richness and diversity in thinking of the human mind – pls note, corporate honchos, if you think all the wisdom lies in one head. Of course most are flippant, hilarious, while a few seriously address the problem! Speculating on who in the world Jack is some go so far as to implicate poor Jill who knows nothing about the question on hand or even the beanstalk! Here is a very small sample across the spectrum:

###ברייטמן: Easy 34 stickers because he gave Dave 3

### Chaudhuri: Well according to nomenclature theory, Tani is a name given to women. But Jen gave the stickers to a man….and there is only one man present in this question, assuming that man is no one but Jack, Jack has 10 stickers……..😏

### Patra: Jack have 69 stickers…Prove me wrong 😂

### Kaur: 23 Stickers….becoz jack is the another name of Tani.

Suddenly the thought occured: What would I say?

Pause here for a moment and think about how would you answer.

Done? Here we go.

How about ‘Same as what Jack had before’? After all there are no transactions involving him. Simple, eh? Of course a dull/dry solution from who but an engineer trying hard to do better:-)

A Happening On A Friday Morning…

The Other I

I have said before that it seems to me the older I get, the less predictable my days become.  Most of my plan for any day ends with the stipulation “barring the unexpected.”

But last weekend this took on a new dimension.  Most of the unexpected things in my life these days aren’t actually surprising.  They are mostly simply unplanned.  Like something breaks in the house, or a neighbour asks for help, or I get a phone call from a family member telling me about a doctor’s visit, or the rainstorm floods the drive and blows down a tree.

The surprise began on Friday morning when I went to prune the rose bushes.  There was our neighbour’s chicken, called Boudica*, energetically clucking around.  She’s gotten out before, and I’ve called the neighbour who comes over and, usually after a serious hour or so of hide and seek, eventually catches her…

More Melodies…

Shut out all other sounds, tune in and enjoy.

Does a bubbling stream make music?

You’ll know in a shortwhile.

This selection of a treat in melody is a little unusual. It starts off with a piece in the Raga Nalinakanthi – true to its name, a beautiful raga, romantic, one of the most pleasant to hear in Carnatic Music. Mimics a bubbling stream. Here it is, ‘Manavyalakinchara’ a Thiyagaraja kriti from Vikaasa’s debut album, ‘Guru’s Feet’ (2013). Vikaasa Ramdas, a musician trained under the tutelage of Mandolin Maestro U. Shrinivas, is accompanied in this piece by Suri Upendra on the mridangam, G. Suresh Kumar on the violin, H. Sivaramakrishnan on the ghatam, and Trichy V.V.S. Manian on the kanjira.
