    The english entries:


    I started reading "The little girl who could." with anticipation. The description of her hair as cruel was both striking and extremely unusual to me, as I carried on reading the story began to develop a rather uncanny ressemblence to "mathilda" . Later I was extremely disappointed to have found out that the real author of this story is a certain Sharon Mason Palmer and can be found on this link: http://www.authorsden.com/visit/view...=4560&id=13038
    what can I say.................. nothing much appart from being disappointed...


    The transparent story, was perplexing to me. I like words, this had none. I didn't know what to make of it. I suppose like the blank canvasses it tries to tell us that faith and transparency can be a heady mixture, but this is all conjunctural....too puzzling for me



    Sally's story of faith and dedication ws lovely. a great start. I feel though that the author could have elaborated and given far more depth to sally's character. It's a great story which just needs a little more time to develop it further. It's almost the story of everyone of us. It's about wanting something badly enough and having enough courage and beliefe in god or oneself to achieve it. I hope that the author will not take anything I say negatively, I woudl realy like to explore this one in more depth....


    The story of Ramachandran was gripping. I must admit that at first I was little bored with all the trivial details of Sivaramans's life, but as the author takes us along the long meandering tracks of the railways, the story develops and become far more interesting. Sometimes humans need faith to continue living, was the message that I extracted from it. Caste is a subject which has been often braoched, but I liked the fact that the son chose the alternative path to it all, I thought it was a great touch. The characters had depth, and the plot was engrossing. great story.


    Am afraid that I'll post my thoughts on the tamil entries later, I'm still reading those.

    அட, நம்ம கதைக்கு பரிசா?? ரொம்ப தாங்ஸுங்கோ எல்லோருக்க ும். :D :D :D Glad to know that you guys enjoyed the story.

    Sometimes humans need faith to continue living, was the message that I extracted from it.
    That exactly is the message of the story Blue. True, rationality drives most part of our lives but that does not invade the space for faith.

    Anainaar borrowed, Siva's name, huh
    The first name the stuck me when I was thinking of a name was Sivaraman. I dont know why and may be I just saw a post by Sivaraman. And that name suits the southern part of Tamilnadu pretty well. :D :D :D.

    Cheers
    Every dog has its day. Today is my day.

    Thanks for bumping the thread people, one question for che though I did'nt quite understand these quotes, konjam explain pleech sorry enakku avvalavu pulamai illa

    வானிடை வாழும் அவ் வானவர்க்கு
    மறையவர் வேள்வியில் வகுத்த அவி
    கானிடைத் தரிவது ஓர் நரி புகுந்து
    கடப்பதும் மோப்பதும் செய்வதும் ஒப்ப,
    ஊனிடை ஆழி சங்கு உத்தமர்க் என்று
    உன்னித்து எழுந்த என தடமுலைகள்
    மானிடர்க் கென்று பேச்சுப் படில்
    வாழகில்லேன ் கண்டாய் மன்மதனே
    உள்ளே உருகி நைவேனை
    உள்ளோ இலளோ என்னாத
    கொள்ளை கொள்ளஇக் குறும்பனை
    கோவர்த்தனன ைக் கண்டக்கால்
    கொள்ளும்பய ன் ஒன்றில்லாத
    கொங்கை தன்னைக் கிழங்கோடும ்
    அள்ளஇப் பறித்திட்ட ு அவன் மார்பில்
    எறிந்தேன் அழலை நீர்வேனே
    I know I know I know I know I know I know I know

    First One

    [தேவர்களுக் காக அந்தணர்கள் யாகங்களில் சேர்த்த உணவை காட்டில் திரியும் நரி புகுந்து மோப்பம் பிடிப்பது போல, உடலைப் பிளக்கும் சக்கரமும் சங்கமும் தாங்கிய திருமாலுக் கென்று ஏற்ப்பட்ட என் மார்பகங்கள ் மனிதர்களுக ்காக என்கிற வார்த்தை காதில் பட்டாலே என்னால் வாழ முடியாது]

    Second One

    [நான் உள்ளுக்குள ் உருகி வேதனைப் படுகிறேன்; இருக்கிறேன ா, செத்தேனா, தெரியவில்ல ை. அக் கோவர்தனைப் பார்த்தால் எந்தப் பயனும் இல்லாத இந்த என் மார்பகங்கள ை அடியோடு (கிழங்கோடு ்) அள்ளிப் பறித்து அவர் மார்பில் வீசி என் உஷ்ணத்தைத் (அழலை) தீர்வேன்.]
