Is this the season of sogams or am I the only one seeing people worrying / sulking all the time?
No boyfriend / girl friend - Sulk.. ok understandable. Have a boyfriend ? Sulk again ..."he was flirting with that girl... bohooo".
Ofcourse all of us have our share of problems but oflate sulking and cribbing have become reasons to seek attention - more importantly the 'boyfriend / girlfriend problem' varieties who beg for your shoulders to cry on.
In such times, why don't they make an attempt to be happy? There are some (well, a lot of) people who follow an exact pattern of conversation . "Hi..how are you? pssst...you know, am down... you know this job... this colleague... my boyfriend.. sulk sulk and sulk!"
I try and put a NO-ENTRY board to such perennial cribbers. It is not possible for anyone to be happy and enthu 24*7 but 'always azhugai' is simply not ok.
The following list goes out to them. Try and find the Aanandam in your lives... You will find a little Peraanandam hiding inside.
Aanandam is... when you are vetti-ing in office
Peraanandam is... when you think of the fact that you get paid for Facebook-ing and twitter-ing!
Aanandam ... an ARR album release
Peraanandam .. when it is in Tamizh
Aanandam .. you move into your new illam
Peraanandam... you realize that the cell phone connectivity is poor there (good excuse to avoid calls from you-know-where)
Aanandam...a call from a friend
Peraanandam... ulagamagaa gossip with her - about Hansika Motwani (who? what??? Google I say!)
Aanandam... a surprise gift from a friend
Aanandam... a swim in the pool

Aanandam... spicy rasam, rice and urulai roast by the purushan on Sundays

Peraanandam ... the thought of onion pakodas and tea during rains
Off I go to eat my pakodas....
