How come a person like Shankar could come with a movie like anniyan...? Again, it depends on person to person, for me the movie was a crap...! Tell Me your dreams-Sidney Sheldon == Anniyan. Though i dint get a chance to read the book, i read the back cover and reviews here and there, seems that the movie is a xerox copy. Tamil movies will never improve, guys we dont want too much of graphics and stunts... please give us good stories.
before i start polambifying ..... here is a forward that i got it Horror gripped the heart of a World War-I soldier, as he saw his lifelong friend fall in battle. The soldier asked his Lieutenant if he could go out to bring his fallen comrade back."You can go," said the Lieutenant," but don't think it will be worth it.Your friend is probably dead and you may throw your life away."The Lieutenant's words didn't matter, and the soldier went anyway.Miraculously, he managed to reach his friend, hoisted him onto hisshoulder and brought him back to their company's trench. The officerchecked the wounded soldier, then looked kindly at his friend."I told you it wouldn't be worth it," he said. "Your friend is deadand you are mortally wounded.""It was worth it, Sir," said the soldier."What do you mean by worth it?" responded the Lieutenant."Your friend is dead.""Yes Sir," the soldier answered,"but it was worth it because when I got to him, he was still alive and I had the satisfaction of hearing him say...."Jim...I knew you'd come." the blog previous to this "crush" ofcourse is not my story that was also a forward that i got, i just forgot to add that. Gosh nawaz,deepak, thirumathi how can you people think that it was my story....grrr......? Gautham thanks for your comments, it itself was like a blog.

Everyone in their lives would have had crushes, and me too had my share of crushes. But, it didn't take much time for each of them to turn to crashes. None of my crushes took off, or probably they crashed even before they took off !! Today, when I look back, I cant manage but to have a laugh. My first crush was on Miss R. I was in my tenth then. We happened to speak only once. It was when I had offered her a coke. She refused to have it and the very next moment I gulped it down. I still cant forget the dumbstruck look on her face. A few days later, she started going around with one of my classmates. They used to go for wonderful evening walks, Miss R, my classmate and her doggy. Unfortunately(fortunately for me), the affair didn't last too long. On one such romantic walk of theirs, my classmate was bitten by the doggy. He brought up the question : Its me or the dog......she chose the dog !!! The news gave me sadistic pleasure. The next crush didn\'t take much time to happen. It was Miss S who walked in to class. I literally had my jaws hanging seeing her. We became good friends...but I never fancied my chances...given the Miss N experience. She was my Biology project partner....while she did the project...I concentrated on her biology ! Just as the boards got over, and as I was mustering enough courage to tell her, her dad got transferred. She changed the city. Next in engineering college, there was this hottie in my class. Boy....she was a babe...Miss G. She used to stand opposite to me in the EEE lab. I prayed for some EEE to happen between us. But I guess, she was much smarter than I was. Miss G realised that I used to mess up all my experiments coz I used to be looking at her and not the apparatus. I called her out ALONE on my b\'day. She turned up with her whole bunch of friends. The girls kept giggling and I looked for a place where I could go and bang my head.I steered clear of her for the rest of my engineering days. Moving on from here, it was a major success story. This time round, it took some time for things to crash....just a little longer..a bit more than five years. Everything seemed like a fairy tale when the crash factor took the better of me. By this time, I was in my job and I decided to use the term "interest" instead of crush. So , my interest grew in Miss L in office. I thought she was a very pretty lady. Thankfully, the growth of my interest stopped very soon, the moment I learnt that she was supposed to go on leave the next week for her marriage. She was to marry her long time boyfriend. Only one thought came to my mind....The good ones are always taken !!! Ha ha ha.....thankfully.....I have grown out of all these......no more CRUSHES.....so no chances of CRASHES......I live this way now.....hey...wait.....who is this girl ???? ;-)
