Tsunami ?

Do you get terrified of warnings? I do not get terrified but curious.. a tsunami alert has been given for the next week in Sri Lanka and am just wondering whats gonna happen.

As if building up the momentum, the sky has been gloomy for the past two weeks, the sun's been hiding ( or may be resting after a heavy show in India) and showers make a secret presence in the nights, leaving wet clothes on the clothes line every morning.

Further its the seas... Since landing on this soil I have not got a chance to go to the beach, reason bieng that my friends have been warned of rough seas by every TOM and HARRY @ work so they wouldn't accompany me near the water. And thanks to the previous attacks we people have no beach to stand on and look up at the sun sliding down the horizon... the last time i tried, i tripped over the huge black rocks that were put up to block the sea from wiping off the sand. So this is the aftermath of a natural disaster that's slowly robbing earth..

Its a welcome relief from the draining heat of Chennai, but wish the atmosphere was a little chirpier and not so GLOOM!!!! And if all his is the trumpet call for Tsunami, lets see if its coming! and if it does not.. huh...

My Characters

Its been a long nap....

Blessed or not without the easy reach of modern gadgets it took me a while to lay my hands on the keyboard... sometimes that which we cannot utter is best controlled and thrown in black and white...a sudden burst of ingenuity and candidness in the vocal manner, can harm the future ahead yet concealed within would also kill the mind with uninvited thinking...yet i need an outlet and here goes as its safe to put it in writing where the intended thoughts, may or may not reach the desired target.

What is pettiness? Is it a trait of the small people whose minds are curbed with negation? Who cannot accept something better from another... whose self-help skills of 'positive thinking' eventually engulfs them to a superior world that propels their complexities into an imagined genius.
'When everyone around me are fools I could rule the world' I heard a man saying. "I can make money with these fools around'. A statement made in arrogance, though it be true. Its because others fail to perceive the his cunning, he survives with making the most of money, conning others into believing his achievements are sole efforts. It is also a form of pettiness to underestimate the value of another, criticizing enough to lame their growth and draw them into imbecility. Its also a sense of insecurity that springs out of fear that the other may overtake him. It is also a matter of the size:-? Which could throw a man behind a veil of peril of being thrown out of the game.
It is interesting to note them and their pattern of talking, commenting and thinking. They are armed with the immense sense of irritation and an imperturbable superiority of being 'Know all' as I struggle to put up with their 'Mr. Knowledge” attitude. Their peevishness to everyone around is a result of being insulted or teased early in life... i always wonder is the matter of the size?

I on the other hand, enjoy the status of a silent spectator to their whims, and analyzing their behaviour only strengthens my study of characters rather than throwing back an impatient attitude(I am learning on that) rebuking their self praise. Thses people make such funny cine characters as they are hard to find in the real world yet a replica of every human mind.

Next time, I am on the lookout for a flirtatious and happy young woman for they are an indelible figure in most movies. I am eager to meet and study them as you think that I may be a psycho analytic witch!!!
