Reference?

In one of the campus recruitments in Chennai, I asked "What is a C++ reference?". The response I got was "Do you mean The complete reference book, sir?"!!!

And this didn't stop with just one candidate. The same answer I got from two more. At the end of the day, I realised how superior the quality of our placement preparations were during college days. I really cherish those moments.

A kid's vocabulary

To observe a child beginning to speak a language is quite interesting. My two year old nephew has just managed to articulate a few words, in his own language. I thought of listing down a few words he uses, with corresponding tranlsations :-)

aepi (with index finger pointing towards sky) - Aeroplane
mamai - Maggi/ Vermicelli
appy appy - Happy birthday/Happy deepavali (anything that starts with happy :-))
beek - bike
biiii taaa - biiiiig car!!! (as in Esteem ad)
laai - lorry
nain - train
thaach - watch
choo - soup
daddu - laddu
aapa - banana (this one is very strange, i could not find any correlation)
pat pat - pattasu (crackers)
taattet - toilet
dhabiii (with a throwing action) - something/somebody has fell down!!
and finally, my favorite:
cha - kicha

I would need updating the list as and when his vocabulary grows.

பொய் அழகு

கவிதைக்கு பொய் அழகு;
கண்ணுக்கு மை அழகு;
கவிப்பேரரசு மொழிகள் இவை

கண்ணே உனக்கு எது அழகு என்று
கேட்கிறாய்;
ஒவ்வொன்றுமே அழகல்லவோ உன்னில்!

நிற்க... மீண்டும் முதல் வரி படிக்க...

கவிதை, கவிதை!

(To my fiancee...)

ஓவியம் ஒன்று பார்த்து சிரித்தேன்..
ஓவியத்தில், சிரிக்கும் நீ!
ஓவியத்தில் நீயா,
நீயே ஓவியமா!
