My Random Scribblings

The Artist

He was immersed.

In the world of colours, drawings and sketches.

He was an eminent Artist.

He had an appointment to meet the most celebrated and the Artist with whom he wanted to work with since his inception as an Artist.

He was all set to leave his work to meet him.

The bell rung.

He carried his tools, rushed to his Mechanical Engineering class and realised that he was late to as he was immersed in art.

Democrac(z)y and Sasikala

Indians went crazy on Trump being elected as the President of the United States; they claimed it was the death of Democracy. On seeing the situation in Tamil Nadu, now I claim, this is the death of Democracy considering the fact that he was elected by the citizens and here, this lady, assumes position without even contesting in the elections.

But hey, hang on! Isn’t she an inspiration? (If you know what I mean)

From being a video tape seller, she became the closest aide of the former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa and now the CM.

Her Mannargudi Mafia plan has not disappointed her till this second. But the challenge for her would be sustaining in the political career as the CM. It is announced that she has to contest after 6 months and win an MLA seat. Naturally, all the cadres would talk about RK Nagar constituency, but winning in a metro city would be difficult.

So, it is Southern Tamil Nadu then due to the favorable Thevar and Gounder population. With many endorsing and supporting her, I’m sure that something is brewing in the party. But the reason for OPS to resign still remains unknown.

Bravo, Sasikala ji!

Dear new CM of Tamil Nadu hon’ble Sasikala,

Thank you for being the confidante of our Amma.

Thank you for taking our brave and victorious leader Ms Jayalalithaa from us.

Thank you for showing inequality by your caste.

Thank you for the Midas distilleries that supplies alcohol to TASMAC.

Thank you for becoming AIADMK’s new part secretary without even holding any position in the past.

Thank you for making O.Paneer Selvam resign from the post of Tamil Nadu’s Chief Minister.

Finally, thank you for becoming the new Chief Minister!

We shall be grateful to you forever! -_-

The Craft of Weaving..

Not a day have the television and newspaper advertisements not flacked fancy silk saris. But little do we know about the state of weavers who craft the beautiful mango designs on our mother’s saris.

To explore more, I decided to visit Kanchipuram.

“We have been into weaving since my great grandfather’s time. And my son is studying now,” said Rajan, a weaver from Kanchi.

Does it not precisely explain?

They weave the most precious silk saris but the saddest part is they cannot even afford a single silk sari. What started as an ancient craft during the times of Krishna Deva Raya in Kanchipuram is reduced to nowhere. Most of them educate their children and want them to enter some other field other than weaving.

“I have been roaming in the streets of Kanchi since a decade. My children abandoned me” said she.

She smiled. But her heart wept.
