Words form the basic tools for any writer.

Words convey meanings as well as emotions.

Words are borrowed as well lent by languages.

Words often fuse together to form new words.

Words have interesting tales hidden behind them.

Words can be picturesque, descriptive, rhyming or poetic.

The components of some words appear to be contradicting.

Some words appear to be the wrong names for the right things.

We shall explore the wonderful world of words now.

I forgot to post the introduction to the blog! Here it is now!

Human beings may look different! The color of their skin may differ. The color of their eyes and hair may vary. Their features may be as varied as is theoretically possible. They may dress differently and speak different languages.

But despite all these differences, the human mind works exactly in the same way - whatever be the nationality, language, customs, traditions, religion and beliefs of the individuals.

So it is small wonder that we find the same ideas being conveyed through the proverbs in different languages.

Here is a comparative study of the parallel proverbs in Tamil and English.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 21,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 8 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Food is one of the basic necessities of all living beings.

Food nourishes the body and gives us the energy we need to do work.

Food has color, flavor and taste and satisfies the eyes, nose and taste buds.

Tastes have some associated properties. So, also the colors and flavors.

We shall explore in this blog the Food, Flavors, Tastes and Benefits of some spices,

herbs, nuts, grains, vegetables, fruits and edible flowers.

Tastes, flavours and benefits

Naughty Poems

Poems woven from rhyming words.

Naughty poems long and short

Time is supposed to e a continuous stream flowing eternally. This is what supports the concept of time travel back to the past or to the future.

At times working backwards is easier than working in the forward direction. When unable to find the way to the center of a maze, we work backwards. It is much more easier to come out of the maze - if we start from the center.

This is a similar attempt in writing simple English poetry. Instead of starting with a theme and going searching for words which rhyme perfectly, I did the converse.

I got all the rhyming words and tried to weave them into a poem - with a rational and acceptable theme - to the best of my ability.

These poems are naughty - not because of their theme - but since they were made differently. These poems had to be long or short - depending on the number or rhyming words at my disposal.

Some of the poems are really good and some are little weird. Since it is an experiment, I request you to enter the blog with a lenient and open mind and try to enjoy my logical and mathematical creations.

We are supposed to “say it with flowers”!

But do we know that each flower stands for some emotion or feeling?

With a little background knowledge, we say say what we wanted to say perfectly
with the flowers, without uttering a word.

So now to the flowers and their significance…

Women have always wished to decorate themselves to enhance their beauty.
Precious and noble metals are used in making ornaments for men and women.
Their beauty becomes more when precious and semi precious gems are studded.

Even those who can not afford platinum or gold or silver and the costly gemstones
manage to decorate themselves with colorful beads and sparkling crystals and minerals.

Now that wearing heavy golden ornaments literally endangers the life of the wearer, ladies of all ages have started wearing crystals of all colors, designs and shapes - matching their costume color.

This blog explores the precious and semi precious gemstones obtained from the crystals.

A school of thoughts is a collection or group of people who share common characteristics of opinion or outlook of a philosophy, discipline, belief, social movement, cultural movement and art movement.

Schools are often classified into “new” and “old” schools. However, it is rarely the case that there are only two schools in any given field.

Schools are often named after their founders. They are often also named after their places of origin.We will look into some of the popular schools of thought and what they say briefly, here in this thread.

1 (# 22 A). ASURENDRAN.

The news of the death of Taarakan at the hands of Murugan reached his wife Souri Devi. She was overcome with deep sorrow. She went to the battle field and lamented over her husband's dead body.
Asurendran and Mangala Kesini's daughter is Maya (Surasai) who begets Tarakan through Kashyapa. Who is Asurendran? If he is Diti's son, his daughter becomes Kashyapa's grand daughter. To add to the son, texts like this say Asurendran is Tarakan's son.

Who is asurEndran?

asurEndran is MangalakEsi's husband.
asurEndran is MAyA's father.
He is also the grandfather of TArakan.
He is the great grandfather of TArakan's son (also named as asurEndran).

AsurEndran + MangalakEsi => Surasa (aka MAyA)

MAyA + Kashyapa = > Sooran + Singamukhan + TArakan + ajamukhi.

TArakan + Souri => AsurEndhran.

It was customary in the olden times to name the grandchildren after their grand parents or great grand parents. Now we use any fancy word which is very short and very novel (with or without any real meaning) to name the children.
