Find Area Cuisine Specific Food

In lifestyle on February 13, 2014 at 17:14

My children often find a Restaurant after we finalize to eat out.

Then arguments ensue in choosing the Type of Food,Area,and the deals offered by them.

My habit has been to know by word of mouth the best restaurant by taste, and check which one is nearby.

That’s all.

Now  a lot of deliberation goes on this issue and most of the time, the Lunch or Dinner time is past.

They check the web or some application to locate a Restaurant.

They also use Google Maps.

On Google Maps, Me and my Daughter, though she is Computer savvy in all things. resort to finding the address or location by the best Media Known to Man,

Asking people around in every corner.

To locate a Hotel or a Restaurant of your  choice one has many options, check for general terms in Google, Type of Cuisine, or Area.

I chanced upon a site which lists City wise, Cuisine wise.Area specific listing .

It also contains information on the Deals being offered Restaurant specific.

Seems to be an easy method of locating a restaurant.

I am aware that there are many other sources on the web and application for the Mobiles.

Tome this seems to be easy.

Have I Grown Up

In lifestyle on February 5, 2014 at 11:04

I have been a risk taker, no calculated risks even.

I do not understand the term calculated risk.

A risk remains one so long it remains.

One Oncologist told me that as far as he is concerned in treating cancer patients, he does not care about the risks,stating that even a miniscule .1% is 100 5 risk for patient!

So is risk taking.

I would simply take any action which appealed me, especially jobs,may be it might offer more benefits or the Job content I liked.

I was very out going, though not easy-going.

These remain the same even this day.

I do things as I used to do, but with slight trepidation, but it will be in my mind, which was not the case earlier,but I do things any way.

As to with people I remain the same.

My close friend of 43 Years tells me I am not easy to approach though I am easy to move with and an extrovert

I do not know.

I used to eat a lot of Chocolates, Ice cream and Sweets.

I still do.

My grand children love me for this as we raid the Fridge together after others sleep.

I used to be irreverent towards every thing, including Religion.

I still do.

I was an Agnostic, bordering on Atheism.

But now am an Advaitin and believe in Hinduism.

I used to be blunt and rude.

I am so even now.

But with a difference.

I think before I speak to family members other than my son and daughter.

I try to use slightly polite language.

I was interested in Books, Music.

Still do.

I used to drink and smoke.

Now I don’t.

I like good things in Life and at the same time can be very comfortable in a simpler surrounding.

Never show my emotions, then and now.


Barring a few minor garnishing I remain the same.

Have I grown up?

I do not know.

But I have not changed.

How about you?

* I am 63.

Vijay TV Super Singer 4 Finals Winner Final Excerpt

In lifestyle on February 2, 2014 at 08:43

The Finale of Vijay TV Super Singer was conducted  in the usual Stay Vijay style with pomp and show on 1 Feb,2014.

The winner is,


Second and third places went to Syed Subhan and Sarath Santosh respectively.

Sonia and Parvati were the fourth and fifth runners-up.

Diwakar proved that he is an entertainer by choosing songs that connected the audience to a jolly mood, the first song  being ‘Arabic kadaloram.

The second, ever popular, difficult to sing, Neeye Uunakku Endrum Nekaraanavan, from Bale Pandiya and he sang this with gutso with the TMS fluctuations and Bhava, with MR Radha‘ antic Jatis.

Syed sang emotionally but chose some emotional song, the first one Eelm Tamil’s agony, though it was excellent rendering did not connect as the ethos was, to be honest, alien to the audience.

Santosh also made the mistake of choosing such songs, though he sung well, that did not sway emotions to turn into votes.

Excerpts as available now.

Vijay TV Super Singer Slick Final Live Link

In lifestyle on February 1, 2014 at 12:00

Vijay TV Tamil,Star Vijay, their programmes in general are quite entertaining.whether it it the Lollu Sabha,Comedy Shows, Adhu,Idhu Eduthu , Neeya Naana or Super Singer series, where they select the best singing Talent in Tamil.

Vijay Tv Super singer group

Vijay TV Super Singer 4

Some observations.

As a marketing man what struck me the most is the way the marketing team milks the Programme, whether it is the Talk Show Neeya Naana, or Super Singer.

Normally many channels would be content with ads and sponsorships.

Star Vijay ropes in appropriate people for the shows, whether it be a Sivamani on Drums,Nithyasree ,Chitra,Vairamuthu knowing the poular person at tht particular point of time.

They also do not forget the mass pull of Rajnikanth or Kamal Hassan!

Not to forget the oldies TMS,PBS,

They have their popular songs included  unobtrusively as a Rajnikanth round or Kamal Hassan round.

They had the ingenious idea of getting Guitar signed by Rajnikanth.

The families of the singers on stage are made to interact and sentimental scenes  are never in shortage.

Then to the singers themselves.

They are taken abroad for Live performances and they perform in Chennai Malls Live.

They seem to cover every segment of the consumers.

What is pleasing is the way they are done, unobtrusively.

Vijay TV is clear, it is in for Business and for entertainment as a means of earning.

But this is one subtly.

What is heartening is the fact that a good purpose is served as a byproduct as in bringing in social awareness through Neeya Naaana and good talent is unearthed in Super singer.

Today, February4,2014, Super Singer 4 is Live for selecting the winner of Super Singer 4.

Watch here.
