Me Thinks

Tuesday, May 08, 2007


If you have a cellphone and you keep it on a counter in a shop and leave without taking the cellphone, its carelessness. But if you put it in your pocket without realizing that its a "hole-y" pocket, its bad luck.

If you wear a ring in your finger and misplace it somewhere inside some public bathroom's wash-basin, its carelessness. But if you wear one with 4 or 5 stones and one of the stones disappear one day, its bad luck.

If you ask one of your friends to keep your expensive watch in his/her pocket because you can't have that watch at that moment and then forget about it, its carelessness. But if you call her a couple of hours later only to hear how her wallet, along with your watch got stolen, its bad luck.

Wondering why I am talking like "Arattai Arangam" Visu? All the aforementioned things happened to me. So I am labelled a careless person. I beg to differ.

And Arratai Arangam Visu? Nowadays, it is termed "Parattai Arangam" by Vijaya T. Rajendar, no?

The holey pocket is the most ultimate case of ill-luck i think. I once removed my ring for the first time ever and put it into the pocket of my shorts. It was the first time I was using the pocket of that shorts and a few minutes later found that the pocket had a small tear in the lining and the ring was nowhere to be found. It did not help that we were playing softball on a grassy lawn. :(

deepa: i guess the person who called u 'careless' is an xtremely cautious person! only that kind will find your mishaps/ill luck as carelessness.

VC: indha lollu ku onnum koraichaley illai!

anantha: VC lollu-iku oru vazhi pannunga!!

No cellphone: I would give my right hand and cellphone for that!
No ring: the world thinks you are single!
No watch: Time frozen stupor!

Yours is actually a nice scenario you should be overjoyed with. :)

I think everyone has a vendudhal to lose atleast one cellphone in 5 yrs. Almost everyone I know has done that sadhanai.

i seriously wonder why you would misplace your ring in a public bathroom. i once lost my ring 'cos it was loose enuf to slip off only to find it in one of my travel bags :-)))

innaba single'a irundhu Vadapalani Murugan kovil'la vangina 10 rooba ring koodaya poda koodadhu. ring'na engagement ring dhaan pottukkanuma ?

I lost two cell phones in three years. Now I carry a least expensive one.

My ring is so tight that I can lose it only when I lose my finger.

To have lost a cellphone, a ring and an expensive watch - carelessness is a milder term.

If someone else does it, it is carelessness; If it is us, it is bad luck!!

Wish you lots of good luck!!
