எல்லா திருமண கூட்டங்களிலும்
நமக்கு பிடித்த ஒருவர் இருந்து
அந்த தருணங்களை அழகாக்கும் நிமிடங்கள்
மனதுக்குள் மழை பெய்வது போன்றது.

உன்னிடம் விட்டு வைத்த
காதலின் மிச்சங்களை
மின்னலாய் வந்த ஒருவள்
முழுதாய் முடித்து வைத்தாள்.
அவளின் கிறங்கிய கண்களில்
இறங்கிய முத்தங்களில்
உனது காதல் கொஞ்சம் கரைந்துதான் போனது.

Monday, June 22, 2009

இன்று இங்கு மழை நாள்
உனக்கு என் மேல் எப்போதும் காதல் இல்லை
எனக்கு இப்போது உன் மேல் காதல் இல்லை
ஆனால்
இது போன்ற ஒரு மழை நாளில்
உன் மேல் எனக்கு வந்த காதல் மட்டும்
இன்னும் காற்றில் ஈரமாய்... அதே இடத்தில்
என் மேல் மோதிய ஒரு மழை துளி சொன்னது

SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE

Best Original Music Score

ACCEPTANCE SPEECH

Before coming, I was excited and terrified. The last time I felt like that was during my marriage. There's a dialogue from a Hindi film called "Mere paas ma hai," which means "I have nothing but I have a mother," so mother's here, her blessings are there with me. I am grateful for her to have come all the way. And I want to thank the Academy for being so kind, all the jury members. I want to thank Sam Schwartz, I/D PR, all the crew of Slumdog, Mr. Gulzar, Raqueeb Alam, Blaaze, my musicians in Chennai and Mumbai. And I want to tell something in Tamil, which says, which I normally say after every award which is... "God is great." Thank you.

SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE

Best Song

"Jai Ho"
Music by A.R. Rahman; Lyric by Gulzar

ACCEPTANCE SPEECH

A.R. Rahman:
I just want to thank again the whole crew of Slumdog Millionaire, especially Danny Boyle for giving such a great opportunity. And the whole, all the people from Mumbai. The essence of the film which is about optimism and the power of hope in the lives, and all my life I had a choice of hate and love. I chose love and I'm here. God bless.

Cool new stuff that makes Google so hot!

Why should users rave about Google? Andre Resende, a computer science undergraduate student at the University of Campinas in Brazil should know. When the company invited users to send in designs for its new favicon - the small icon that greets you when you access Google on your URL bar or your bookmarks list - Resende submitted one. His placement of a white 'g' on a color-blocked background was highly recognizable and attractive, so it inspired Google's new favicon. But that is only the tip of the iceberg as far as Google's interaction with its end user is concerned. One peek at Google Lab tells you how smart the company is with recognizing the users' pulse and resting its innovation on such simple needs. And what's more, users have a free hand in playing with the company's innovation while they are still in gestation. Here's is how Google has been changing the way we do things and building, bit-by-bit, the technology bellweather that tech buffs and geeks love to track and sometimes follow.

Indian story at the 2009 Australian Open


Indian tennis had one of its most successful-ever Grand Slams at the 2009 Australian Open as Sania Mirza and Mahesh Bhupathi won the mixed doubles crown on February 1, 2009. Yuki Bhambri had won the boys' singles the day before, and though there was disappointment for Leander Paes in the doubles and for Sania in the singles, all in all it was a memorable fortnight for Indian tennis. As we take a look at the performance of Indian players at the Australian Open, here is hoping that the momentum is maintained and India's tennis players go from strength to strength in 2009.

The pair of Sania Mirza and Mahesh Bhupathi were given a wild card to enter the main draw of the mixed doubles event at the 2009 Australian Open. Sania and Bhupathi, who were runners-up in the mixed doubles at the 2008 Australian Open, made the most of the opportunity as they combined well and had an easy passage to the final. The Indian pair faced the French-Israeli combination of Nathalie Dechy and Andy Ram in the final, and the contest was thought to be too close to call. However, Sania and Bhupathi dominated their opponents and won the final 6-3, 6-1 in only 59 minutes. This was Bhupathi's 11th Grand Slam title, while it was the first for Sania. In fact, Sania is the first Indian woman to win a Grand Slam title.

With Cisco Eos, consumers interact with and around your content, not just with one another. Consumers presented with engaging content and the opportunity to interact stay longer and consume more content.
