XEROX – The best buddy of Engineering Students #AtoZchallenge

maxresdefaultYou may feel it funny.. But this is right! Xerox is the best buddy of Engineering students.. At least in the exam days.. I don’t know whether this happens in Kerala only.. 😉 The whole academic year will go like a cultural event and in the end teachers will go mad and we students.. We are already mad.. There won’t be any text books available in the library.. There won’t be any notes and the only destination is Xerox centers near the college.. There will be a big queue which we have to beat and get the necessary photocopies of study materials.. This is a part of every Engineering students life, while he is in Government college or Self-financing.. 🙂 Those bundle of black and white papers will be the best friend for next days till the exam.. There is a tradition of handing over those bundles to our junior batch.. 😉 That’s how I am linked with an X.. 😛 Xerox.. 🙂


Birthday Wishes to my artist Arju!

My blog now a days turned to a birthday wishing one. 😛 Right after the Musical Mozart’s birthday post; I am back with another talented one. My personal favorite. Arju, my wonderful friend. People here were asking me to share his works after seeing one of his illustration in my new year blog post. So here I am. More about him on his birthday. First of all, sing along
Happy Birthday dear Arju!! 🙂

Arjun aka Arjun Dev or the most common nick name posses – Ambattan is my personal comedian. If you are feeling dark around or mundane along, just ring him. He have an enchanting power to make me laugh. Not smile, I said laugh!! 😀 That’s him.
That lean guy I met in the college corridors, striving to become an electrical engineer 6 years back. A person who was obsessed with colors, paintings & photography. Like every Keralite; an engineer first and chasing the real dream then! Who was ready to pass any hurdle to pursue his dreams. Someone who taught me what dedication towards passion is & lives right in front of my eyes. And I am the biggest fan of this Photographer cum Designer cum Artist cum Painter cum Absolute dancer.

And now, my dear..
Happy Birthday! Keep going! I know you are still struggling to stand still in these waves which are striding around us. But you are a winner always! Who creates happiness within & around. Thank You for being one among the very few of trusted people I own. Thank you for all those stupid jokes you cracked even at our tough times. I am not going emotional, that never suits us. We are insane people na? 
‘It’s not the money that matters; It’s the happiness I m getting from Photography which makes me ME!’ Even you said this while laughing, this was one class punch dialogue from you dear.. 😛 
Stay blessed Always!!
Fly high!!

You are lovely.. My prayers & Love.. 🙂

Now its all about ‘Premam’

 *As usual a little Spoilers ahead

After two consecutive failure in grabbing tickets, it’s the third week after release I got a chance to watch the movie. Sundays were my only chance to watch movie cause of a busy schedule and I can’t forget the first week we tried from Kodungallur Asoka theater to all Screens throughout Ernakulam and ended up in watching ‘Mass‘. 😦 The next week the same bunch of my cousins with whom I tried the first time managed to catch a seat on working day and I wasn’t able to reach them. And for my desperation, they watched twice (Thanks to online booking, otherwise my brothers would be losing some health to get a ticket). 😛 And now on the third week I checked my book my show app every day till I get a Sunday bookings open and with no time I booked for my roommates & me. I was so eagerly waiting for the movie & my eagerness doubled when my cousins started saying the jokes from the movie in secret (not to spoil my freshness over the movie). And the day arrived. I landed straight to Cinemax and got my tickets and waited for my roommates. It was a 4.00pm show and I got angry when I came to know that, they didn’t start from the room even at 4.00 pm. With all my frustration I got into the screen and took my seat. I sat back & relaxed. Within no time the title rolled.

premam-66216From here on wards it’s all about movie. To say from ‘Thank God’ to the final title credit ‘Alphonse Putharen‘ as ‘Roney‘ the movie deserves the clap. Premam is simple as the director said “Don’t expect a war!”. I never expected the war but this was more than that. I cried, I laughed, I smiled and after all it never left my heart. Do I have that ‘Malar Effect‘? NO. I have the whole Premam effect. As a movie freak I respect the whole team. I don’t know from where I should start appreciating. As all say, ladies first!

The three female pivots in Premam. Anupama Parameswaran (Mary George) wasn’t a pivot, but still can’t leave without mentioning about her. She did all well as Mary. Even it’s for a little time; her smile, her hair and her charm take us whole back to some beauty queen in our old days. Sai Pallavi (Malar). She was outstanding and to say, out of words. Well executed, perfect casting. Felt like she took the movie to another range. She did her part very well. And her dance too. She deserves a bow! 🙂 Madonna Sebastian (Celine), even she had a little to play, she did that well. And thanks Alphonse for introducing some beautiful people to the movie. 🙂 The girls were lovely 🙂

And here comes the gang. Starting from the super cool Nivin Pauly, You are Great mahn! He is flawless. No one will forget that mass entry of Nivin, Shabareesh and Krishna Shankar in the College introduction. Black Shirt & White dhothi with that ‘Kalipp‘ (rude) look. George (Nivin pauly) was safe in Nivin‘s hand. As a Plus two student, College scoundrel 😛 and in the end the one who runs a well reputed cafe; his looks, his acting and everything was perfect. Yet again he proved he is good in doing normal roles. And the two men around Nivin, Koya (Krishna Shankar) & Shambhu (Shabareesh Varma) they made the movie a perfect 10. I remembered a 1000s of Koyas and Shambhus from my college life. They were outstanding.

Now coming to the man behind everything. Alphonse Putharen. After ‘Neram‘ I told everyone, it’s a good movie by Alphonse, the one who directed album ‘Yuvvh‘. But now I would like to call you Sir. I don’t know why. But really appreciate and respect the way he treated the movie. The way he made the movie. The way he presented everything. Well placed comedies, characters and after all the editing. The script, dialogues, locations – everything was right and went right. Everyone knows there is no big story in Premam but everyone wish to watch that once again. And that’s the victory. He made the characters from common people. Everyone was one from our life itself and that made us easy to connect the movie with our heart. I laughed for the jokes but after all I left the cinemas with a tearful smile. I opened my heart and placed the movie safe there and locked it. Premam is not a Great movie, but I have to find another word to describe it.

Special mention to Vinay fort (Vimal Sir), Soubin Sahir (P T Sir), Jude Antony Joseph (Dolly D’cruz) You rocked and the power pack David (Renji Panicker). Special thanks to all the new casts. You all did well. Thanks to Shabareesh Varma for the lyrics (especially ‘Malare‘), Anirudh & Pradeep Paalar for ‘Rockkaanthu’ (which gonna rock every Colleges now on wards), Vijay Yesudas for making ‘Malare‘ lively. Vineeth Sreenivasan for charming ‘Aluva Puzhayude‘ and all thanks for songs to Shabareesh Varma and Rajesh Murugesan. Kudos to Anand C Chandran. Butterflies were butterflies and it flown to our heart only cause of your work. Special mention to the bgm. All were touching and rocking. And last but not least to the Production house. Thank you ‘Anwar Rasheed‘ for giving your money for this epic movie. 🙂

Special thanks to the Ants, Rain, Sun and the main characters – Butterflies. ❤

Dear Alphonse Sir, I expect more magic from you.. waiting fingers crossed.. 🙂

After all Premam is all about love. Do watch it even once and lighten your heart. ❤

(My only sadness is I wasn’t able to watch the movie with my favorite people, My brother (to whom I called right after the movie & asked shall we go and meet Alphonse Putharen? 😛 ) & Cousins)

Away from HOME – Phase 3

     8 years before on a sunny morning I loaded my luggage to the car. What’s that feeling that haunted me? Still, I don’t know. Its like a little birdie getting out from mother’s wings. My eyes were welling up. I am gonna miss my room, my bed, my books, my home town. 😥 Oye! You are only a 40 kms away from home. Really! Then why so much of this drama? Its on that morning I realized how it is; departing from home for a long time. I can come back every weekend; can feel that homely feeling once in every seven days; but still i was feeling numb. I felt a small tear rolling down my cheeks when our car took the bend and my home was out of sight. 😦 Mom and Dad is saying how to handle life alone; how to be brave; how to behave; how to be careful. I was 16 then,actually 15; will reach 16 two months later. So called bold and brilliant little girl from our family; who is ready to catch her dreams in the world of art and buildings. I wasn’t worried about anything; but my heart was cold ❤ . I couldn’t hear its lub dup; its almost out of order. Brain is out of order from the day I joined the college. Severe disorder to my whole body!! Master brain and lovely heart; they both seems to be resting in my room at home. 😛


Yeah! After a great section of ragging (that time it was hurting but now seems to be funny!) and introduction i entered to the world of college and hostel life. 8 years and 3 different hostels; different satires; Archie life to Engineering life (from artist to professional); Student to Architect (from professional to actual professional) Different places, different rooms, different people. Hostel life is so called hell for everyone where we make heaven. Wherever i stayed till now; I made heaven out of that every hell. 3 years as a stubborn archie who always carried a pencil in her drooping pants; 😉 Sleepless nights with my sheets and drawings; a world with colors and models (models of structures; not Lakme fashion week 😛 ) Loosing weight; laughing at every simple things; finding my true love (first love is always special ❤ ); long walks; and living with least pocket money. It was the best I had. The first time I found out what friendship is; what love is; what adjusting is; what is it like living with a bunch of people from different home; and moreover so many experiences over life. From the first phase of life away from home; I studied how to love each other; how to trust on someone and how not to break it. We managed to stuck in a room with 10 beds (which we changed to 8 and we 10 slept over that); 2 tables (both with my sheets stick over that). We never complained; but we enjoyed every moment with tears and laughs. The people who taught me to smile at every conditions; to sing on every worries; to sleep with my tensions over submissions and to praise the Almighty for everything!! 🙂


Then  the second phase of life away from home. Crying days cause of missing old room mates; 😦 stuck among some seventy people who are already friends for the past one year and I am new Alien to them. And the life with some higher standard people who always carried a thought that they are bigger than anyone cause they are Engineers. 😛 From there I studied what wrath is 😛 ; what hate is; what betrayal is; how is it like cheating someone with whom we are sleeping everyday; how is it like taking someone’s precious thing and ruining it; how is it like sitting for combine study and having a urge in mind that I m gonna score more than you 🙂 ; how is it like spending more money on nothing we need; how it is like complaining on everything; and moreover whats backstabbing. I know someone among those people will read this one day and will realize how I felt for them. This is not what I felt then; this is what my realizations are after that 3 years of life. I won’t complain you cause even my cousins did the same to me; Betrayal; so why can’t you! 😛 I would better study from them how to keep that hate towards anyone for a long time for no reason; how to cheat someone who is in your room for the past two/three years; how is it to betray your best friend (so called best friend). Strange people; strange life it is!! 🙂


Through which I am going now. My life with some responsible; still funny and loving people; a set of crazy ones who are trying hard to build up their career to whom I never tried to mingle with; but all fell in place and they seems to be getting adjusted to me! (Yes; m pretty confusing often 🙂 ). I was worried of joking over them; make fun of them; even to care them. I was wrong often! Now I started joking over them (they over me too); make fun of them (they over me too); even started caring them(they care me too) 😛 . Some different mind sets who never attracts; but for God’s sake we never repels. Thank God for making me keep a short distance between everyone among us. Cause that short distance is making us together always. Thank God for making them give me my space in my life (Not blaming over my friends, my books, my songs, my writings, my weirdness, my madness, my life). They are the well mannered well behaving people. May be cause we are all responsible working people (of same age! 🙂 ) But this is another dimension in my life! 🙂

Toast for all the people who made me smile on my days away home. Dedicated to all my hostel mates (who made me happy) in this journey of life. 🙂 Don’t ever feel that there were no bad ones in my Phase 1 and good ones in Phase 2. There were; but these are only the memories which remains now. Don’t think they are the only one who betrayed me. Sometimes my family people 😛 and my so called friends did the same. Don’t think that they are the only one who makes me happy. I have my princess of love who makes me laugh in tears (my Mayasa ❤ 🙂 ❤ ); my own brother who always makes me smile in every situation (my Aaashi 🙂 ❤ ); my wonderful buddy who always says I am the best (my Vichu 🙂 🙂 ); my reflection in life who always makes me feel we are the only two extinct pieces in our species (my Boss ❤ ❤ ); my family and a crazy set of siblings who always makes me feel I am special. So many people here and there! Long live this wonderful people. ❤

Nuz’ha, Shari, Ahalya, Sini Chechi, Maria, Greeshma, Sheena Chechi, Anju Chechi, Aswathi Chechi, Dhanya Chechi, Akhila, Daly (In first phase 🙂 )

Aisha, Vrindha, Akhila, Hiba, my lil junior fellows and MBA mates (In second phase 🙂 least in count)

Akhila, Vidhya, Limiya, Bhagya, Deepthi, Aswani, Soorya, Kala (In third phase 🙂 )

Its just a simple thought of what makes me happy in this hectic life made me write this blog ❤ Love you all ❤

an era coming to an end…

…don’t know where i started…don’t know where i will end…started a life here like a life in hell…it seems to be so for the past three years…but still found someone to make my life worth living here…there were many who came to my life in a way to touch my heart…some came and went…but some stayed…

my world around in the college is full of colors…sometimes tears…mostly laughs and smiles…my smiles are always blended and surrounded with my best buddies who cherished each and every moment in my life here…life in ICET was once the worst chapter of my life and now at the ending its on the top of best chapters…the cool mornings here in my alone room (which is double room…but i don’t know till now who my room mate is…:))…late night chit chats…gupshups…movies…oh!!sleepless exam days…bundles of xerox…cooking noodles doodles…fighting for silly things…everyone around me seems rocking…under the huge tree (the perfect place to hangout)…canteen (till the last sip of eldhos bhai’s tea)…auditorium(OMG!!once we got locked up in that)…ashrafkka’s shop…special strong tea…long walks to the college…through the broken roads…i m gonna miss those times…i m now enjoying each and everything here…in the college…arts…games…every single days…even our exams…:)

i really wish this time never ends…
