882. When a girl cheats a guy



"How would a Peacock feather put kutti?", I asked her

"When you keep a peacock feather inside a notebook and leave it closed for a month, the feather will multiply into two."

So I went home and kept the feather inside my Maths notebook. I did not open the book that month and failed in my monthly exam. Later that day I was told that Peacocks don't give birth to baby peacocks. When I discovered that they lay eggs, I realized my folly. I was furious. I walked up to her and asked her why she cheated me.

"Female peacocks lay eggs. But male peacocks give birth to baby peacocks if you keep the feather inside the note book"

"But you told me that the feathers will multiply. How will a baby peacock be born?"

" After all the feathers are formed, you have to take the feathers and keep it inside a box for a month. If you do that, the body, legs and head of the Peacock will be formed"

And so I believed her again. Well I was 8 years then and I was super innocent that time. These days, 8 year old boys are becoming fathers of children and many 8 year old boys already have girlfriends. I only had a crush at that time. But even after 1 year, nothing happened to that peacock feather. I was disappointed. So I again tried to confront her.

" I think you lied to me. The peacock feathers never multiplied"

" Only male peacock feathers multiply. What you had kept in that notebook must be a female peacock feather. Female peacocks lay eggs. They don't give birth to baby peacocks. Stop blaming me"

" Sorry! I did not think of that". Can you give me a male peacock feather?"

" Okay here you go. But make sure that you follow all the necessary rules in preserving the feather in the notebook"

So I kept the feather inside a used rough notebook and carefully placed it in my desk in school. I never took it home. After a month, when I opened it there were two feathers. I was very happy. I went to her and thanked her and told that I was sorry for not trusting her completely. She forgave me and showcased her big heart. I did not fall in love with her because I was already in love with Renu. If Renu had not been there in my life, I would have fallen for her.

The very next day, I saw her opening my friend's notebook and placing an additional feather inside his notebook, when he was not in the class. I realized that she had cheated me. But I was too scared to confront her. It has taken me 25 years to finally come out of the shell and write about my pain in this blog. But I am still scared and that is why I have not revealed her name yet.

881. That Bodhai when you get record post views.



I have been in Quora writing answers on sports and this happened.

I know that this would be a jujubi matter for Quora experts and they would say"What is so special about this?"

For a die hard Sachin fan (I know many my age would be), writing something about Sachin gives me a lot of happiness and to get such a reception for the answer I wrote about him has taken me to murunga maram top.

Read my answer here [Prason's Quora Answer on Sachin's 200].

880. Autograph movie in real life


These grannies created a sensation when they decided to stitch their school uniforms that they wore 50 years ago and wear them for their alumni meet. That is swag style at its best. This happened in Vallapattanam in Kerala.  Some of them even had their old school note books in their bag.

This gives hope for all of us to conduct a school alumni meet. The WhatsApp school groups will be active for the next few days and there would be heavy planning going on to have an alumni meet.

But things may not be the same if we have a school alumni meet. We would have a scenario in which the following might happen

1) Srinivas and Radhika might come to school. Back in school, they were the inseparable Rakhi sister-brother duo. She will tie a rakhi in his hand every year. But now they are husband and wife and the proud parents of two lovely children. We will rag them to death.

2) Ravi will also come for the meet. Ravi was Radhika's boyfriend in school and Srinivas was his best friend during school days. Ravi is now married to Radhika' friend Soundarya.

3) Balaji will get an opportunity to take his revenge on Chemistry sir - Mr. Daniel. Mr Daniel just gave 20 out of 50 marks for Balaji in Chemistry practicals because of which Balaji did not get good marks in his +2 exams. Balaji swore to take his revenge some day. But he is now in a good position. But it would be funny to see how he reacts when he meets Mr Daniel. Mr Daniel is retiring this year

4) We might all have a chance to see our French ma'm. All the boys were crazy about her. In fact I took Tamil as my second language. But I was in the French class all the time.

5) The first thing I will do is to go to the school loo to see if my artwork in the loo wall is still there. I had expressed my love for Renu in the toilet wall. 

6) To see if Natarajan anna still comes to school in his cycle carrying the ice box. He used to sell icecreams for 50 paisa

There are many other things that we would love to re-live. But I can't express them in this blog as it will separate families and make some to end their life too.

879. Manda Bathram; because I am dangerous

In West Indies, when a boy baby is born, they will say "Okay this boy will become an opener for a cricket franchisee in the IPL". West Indies produces some of the greatest hard hitters in the world. But do they lack stamina? 


Look at all the muscle clad body builders of the West Indian cricket team. They can enter the WWE ring and lift Big Show and Goldberg easily too. But they don't last longer than 20 overs in cricket. In test match cricket, they don't last longer than 3 days, but in T20 cricket, they are literally unbeatable. Check out for these guys 
  • KKR has Sunil Narine. Who would have thought that this guy can bat? But he has the fastest 50 in this IPL
  • RCB has Gayle. T20 was defined by this monster
  • MI has Lendl Simmons. He is the dark horse of the team
  • SRH had Sammy; he was not their opener, but he was a successful captain.Now KXIP has him
  • DD has Carlos Brathwaite, the beast who smoked 4 successive sixes. He is not an opener too; but he might soon become one
  • GL has Dwayne Smith, who can single handedly win a match for their team
  • RPS do not have a single West Indian; but they have Dhoni. You might ask "Is Dhoni from WI?" When RPS lifts the cup, I will reveal the answer

Even Ussain Bolt is a sprinter. He can't run long distances. If you had seen long distance runners, they are either from Ethiopia or Kenya or Somalia. Guys who are just made of bones have lot of stamina. 

Note to all the body builders: This statement does not have any double meaning statement hidden in it. So don't get angry. Even if you get angry, I don't mind, because the stamina example was evident from the movie Pudhupettai too, where Dhanush (just bones) would be beaten to pulp by a gunda gang; but he will endure the test of time and eventually beat all those guys. Why am I telling this? I have a bone body too. So manda bathram.

Note: Bayathula chuchu poyiteengala? Idhukkey bayandhaa eppadi? Innum evlavo irukkey.
