True to one's root - Super Star Rajinikanth



A hero in the movies and a hero in real life, a person every one of us can look up to. He is tantamount to the very personification of the word ‘Hero’.
All the fanfare this great man receives seems to leave only a trace of a humble, trademark smirk in his face. He is not one of those glitterati, waiting to get more famous at every passing opportunity.

This subtlety and humility makes me want to worship the Superstar.  Of course, he comes from a humble background and all that but how many from the glamorous movie industry try to stay true to their roots?  Sophistication, big-city ways, peaks of popularity, unending and ageless fan following, box office hits, and all the praise can leave only one person unperturbed and it is our Superstar.
His iconic style and movie dialogues are much spoken of, all over the world. Although he is critically acclaimed for most of his movies, I have mixed thoughts about the ‘jokes’ that are aimed at him. However witty they might be, I do not enjoy them very much and for goodness’ sake, we are not talking Alia Bhatt here.  She digs her own grave and yes, she is very brave.

In Chennai central station one day, I visited the Higginbotham’s book place. I normally browse through the books here every time I travel from central and this time it was special, I bought a book. The name is what caught my attention - Rajini's Punchtantra: Business and Life Management the Rajinikanth Way. I grabbed a copy right away and started reading it as I paid for it. Before I could get inside the train, I had read the book twice. The idea of relating Rajinikanth’s famous punch dialogues to management philosophy just WOWs me.

See how some of the readers of Curiosity’s report of a ball found in MARS didn't spare the superstar here: :((

  1. He is talented and humble. I agree. At the same time he is very lucky. Speaks Tamil with Kannada accent and Tamil people love that accent. Another actor, Kalyan Kumar (hero in Nenjil Ore Aalayam), spoke Tamil with Kannada accent. People ran him out of town.

    1. Oh yea... luck is a factor too :) I won't disagree... but superstar's charisma is beyond luck in my opinion :) his style of speaking Tamil was more important than his Kannada accent I guess, SG :)

      Thanks for dropping by :)

  2. He doesn't hide his age behind makeup, and wears simple attires even for movie-related functions. I like that simplicity in the man.

Make Up and Me (Not Me)

They say people who don't know to dance have two left feet. Although, I might have two left feet myself, what is more interesting is I might actually have two left hands.

Okay, I understand that's funny but here is why:

If you are a girl or a boy or a boy who looks like a girl, you would probably know that it is a thing now to have a makeup blog or vlog or youtube channel in your name. I bumped into this world of cosmetics, beauty blogs and tutorials only a few months ago. For those who don't know about it, let me tell you, it is a crazy, ruthless and unbelievable world.



Heard of these? Snail slime masks, Placenta hair masks, Seaweed bathing creams, Microblading.... and endless other such insane stuff. These are insane but quite popular among beauty enthusiasts and they even swear by the benefits of such products.

These are otherwise cringe-worthy products in my world. I use gramflour+tumeric face mask, Coconut oil hair mask and  a normal, cheap bathing soap and my skin i…

Ever Yours, Vincent.

Never in a thousand years did I think I would be obsessed with a late, delusional psycho who was also an exceptional artist and a noteworthy character with a peculiar interest for romance.
My affair started around 8 years back; a time when I had started writing and blogging for the first time. I visited this pop-up museum of contemporary art which showcased Vincent Van Gogh’s choicest documentaries. Many of his famous paintings were also on display. That was the day I fell in love, with his art, with the way he loved, with the way he expressed himself before he fell into life’s inevitable trap.
The beautiful yellowish hues that dominated his paintings, the sunflowers, the potato eaters and the starry night which comes alive in my dreams every night. Those letters he wrote his brother Theo with care, love and a pinch of attitude. That unconditional brotherly love, that aimless love he showed his friend and mentor Gauguin, that love he showed the random women he saw and painted, that lo…

Memories of...#26DaysOfSummer #A-ZChallenge

I don't know if this one counts for a poem. My rhyming sense failed miserably as emotion took over. A stinging emotion called nostalgia. A nostalgia which is synonymous to summer itself and a lot of other sweet things.

Here goes:
