veyil uru ----- that vellore is

The days r soooo hooootttt that one cannot imagine venturing out into the sun, not even upto to the nearest netcafe to blog. Foregoing the joy of blogging turns out to be, but a little sacrifice.
And so the lull in the appearance of new posts.

One prefers to sit tight in a room comfortably with the aircondition to full blow, reading books, sipping cold lemonade.
Even if one braves the heat and ventures out in an auto-rickshaw or a car, it is only to finish a given important task and rush back to the room at the earliest.

So have got nothing more to do than to anticipate the onset of the teacher's vacation to set out to the beautiful hills of Kotagiri in the Nilgiris, for a much required break and hopefully a joyous time with the friend there in his farm of lovely carnations and maybe other beautiful flowers as well. I have heard that he has rabbits for visitors at his farm.
And am I excited to drive down?

So keep ur eyes and ears open for the upcoming blogs.

Have been working on sudokus in the last week. A very fascinating pastime. It helps improve one's logical and analytical ability or so I think. A well-meaning friend gave me the know-how of the solving techinique. I was fascinated by her intelligence and have been recommending the same technique to my other friends as well.
Then I thought of checking out on the sudoku website. Lo and behold I found the same technique given there, even a little more elaborately. The cat was out of the bag. Of course my friend had admitted visiting various sudoku websites. But little did I imagine to see what I saw.

Yet another shock was awaiting me at the sudoku site. It is a full-fledged endeavour for many rather than just a pastime. It gives me the feel of being a Religion or atleast -- almost. With forums, suggestions groups, feedback counters and what-not.

And all this over just a puzzle---- Mind-boggling----- Maaaan.

P.S.( The sudoku

Death, though the most inevitable happening in any person's life, creates a huge vacuum all around.
Although it is the most expected event in most cases, it creates and leaves almost unbearable sorrow to the near and dear ones.
WHY? Is it because we don't know where the loved one is going or is it because we fear the unknown consequences?
When we can accept birth as most natural why run away from death and treat it as the most unnatural event?
Why avoid dying? Isn't death a relief from the everyday struggle of this troublesome and painful
Even if we r not all that lucky right away,why not feel happy for the loved ones who have gone past us?

Think u guys and gals-----think deeper and deeper. Broaden ur horizon and thicken ur perspective.
