The Ultimate Liberator!

For the seekers of knowledge
Can there be a knowledge?
better than
The Knowledge of The Divine, Shri Rama!

The one who liberated
Even the blades of grasses
And all the swarms of ants

Leaving none behind
That ever existed
In the Good City of Ayodhya

And placed them in
An exotic heaven
Created exclusively for them
By the Great Grandshire Brahma!


Ramayanam is Agriculture
Bhagavatham is Harvest

The twin-syllable, Rama
When a devotee exalts!
The Birth-Death cycle
It permanently halts

Sin and poverty
It cleanses and shrinks


Goodness Honesty Sweetness Simplicity
Gentleness Strength Humility Bravery
Valour Talent Prowess Success
Memory Trustworthiness Heroism Genuinity
Such adorable qualities and so much more
By chanting Rama's name you will score!


My Lord's Story: Goodness Incarnate

Ramayanam in English poetry.

The Supreme Lord of the Universe was once born on this earth as a Human Being, faced challenges and had His share of pain and pleasure going through both good and bad times like any of us. Like any of us He too, took His turn in laughter and cry.

This humility of The Lord, that makes Him come down to earth and share with us our difficulties to show us a way to handle them is what I admire in Him. This quality of Him, makes me surrender to Him unconditionally and makes me want to sing His Glory on and on and on.

My Lord's Story is an out pour of my devotion that seeps out in gratitude for the pains He took to be a lighthouse for us, to cross the ocean of Samsara.

Nice Experience.

Yesterday I watched Raman thediya seethai.

I am happy I watched it.

It was a nice experience watching a movie with characters who are really human and reflect the kind of people we watch in day to day life.

Though there are three heroes in the movie, the protagonist is an eligible bachelor who is in search of a life partner. In his young age he had lost his sanity and had been treated for it. Though he is perfectly okay now he doesn't want to hide it. This ends up in many girls rejecting him. How he, his friends and his well-wishers react to this delicate issue is what the film is all about.

I would appreciate the director for making use of all the interesting factors that is involved in the search of a bride and in marriage.

At one instance the bride elopes away, the day before marriage. In another, the hero sees an auto driver who is truly in love with the girl whom he had just approved of. Being a soft hearted person he himself talks to the girl about the auto driver and encourages her to accept him. In another case he goes to see a girl in a political party meeting where the girl, who is a Police Inspector, is in vigilant security for a minister and ends up getting kicked by her. [The scene that follows is real fun.]

Cheran, the actor turned director, has played the lead role. He deserves much appreciation and applause. He breaks the myth about an hero's image. He also challenges the actors with star value by his simple and to the ground way of acting.

There are two sweet surprises in the movie. Pasupathi, who plays a blind RJ and Nithin Sathya, who is a thief in the beginning and turns to honest living after falling in love.

The scene in which Pasupathi plays saxophone inside his house while his girl stands in the street and accuses him of being a coward is simply adorable. Similarly his introduction scene, the way he deals with his love, the fight he has with the rash bike drivers are all simply awesome. Though a blind man fighting four guys doesn't fit into logic it is enjoyable.

Nithin sathya is a real delight. The marathon he runs is tickling as well as touching.

I admired the hero's character. He doesn't blame anyone for his bad luck. Nor does he hold any grudge on any one. When he meets the girl who eloped away putting him to shame, he only melts for her present situation. When he meets the girl who rejected him three years ago, he warmly greets her. When someone suggests to propose to her one more time, he says humbly, "No. She has already rejected me. We shouldn't keep disturbing some one." He is truly a RAMA except for the majesty. As a devotee of Rama, that's what I felt.

I wouldn't say this movie is technically excellent. Nor is it a classic.

But I would bet that this is a movie with innovative thinking, original creativity, healthy comedy and an interesting screenplay.

Best wishes and hearty congratulations to the team.

Hi Ramesh,
Good review.
I have heard about this movie though not seen it yet. But your review makes me want to see it.
PS : Last week I saw Saroja, a low-budget no-frills movie. Liked it.
