It is better to burn out than to fade away

Am always fascinated by John lennon's "Imagine" and "Give peace a chance"
The sheer attraction of the numbers,the demi god status the Beatles enjoyed
during their hey days even though there is nothing called as internet made me
to visit The Beatles Mueseum in Liverpool.There seems to be always an idiosyncrasy
associated with artistic geniuses.Although I really cant imagine the state of mind
John Lennon was when he said, "we(Beatles) are bigger than christ",seems its true
fame can make you go crazy.When you can make the worlds powerful man and
woman your fans and make people cry in hysteria,you seem to be in a unique
state of mind. When a reporter asked him how he expected to die, he replied,
'I'll probably be popped off by some loony.' Two decades later,he was killed by
a deranged person outside the Dakota building in New York at the age of 40.

I remember Subramanya Bharathi's Yoga Mandiram
"....Kilaparuvameithi....pala veedikkai manitharai poole naan veelven endru ninaithaya"
and Kurt Cobain's suicide note,"It is better to burn out than to fade away"
Read the above lines once again.Got the sub-text?
Both the geniuses died young.

Micheal Jackson..??

Okaay.

I used to watch many TV programs regularly..but many of them kind of dropped off my radar.
Lost interest in Vijay TV's Super singer after Raginisri's elimination,
but kept watching since I liked Prasanna,Karthick and Renu.

Now-a-days, I make it a point to watch Neeya Naana program in Vijay TV.
I like Gopinath's tamil.Anbu vanakkangal,nenchaarntha nandrikal.Sweet.
The production team seems to have the talent of choosing very interesting topics
for discussion.Last week it was..How the family members will behave/be...
when appa is at home and when he is not at home.
It was very interesting to watch...as usual.I was laughing all through the program.
We can identify ourself in many of the points that were discussed.
By the way who is that beautiful senorita in rose color Chudithaar...!!


Happen to watch a YouTube video.Was mesmerised by the music.
Although I cannot really understand the kannada lyrics,the song was
really really awesome.The 1980's streets and landscape of bangalore...
the stylish subtle romance captured in the song sequence..guess what..
this is Maniratnam's first movie,music composed by..who else..
God of Music.

Folks,"Naguva nayana" from Pallavi Anu pallavi movie for you....
