silverine said...

So you are from Vadakara...I was wondering what you were doing in achayan territory:)

Porotta seems to be a hot(!) favorite among the guys!!

The Silence of the Lambs is a movie I can never see again. It shok me up brrrr But I loved the old Chupke Chupke, the entire movie and songs is a classic!! :)

Dhanush said...

@seema - Thanks.. Germany to Watch Football Worldcup.

@silverine - Achan Vadakarite, Amma Palaite, Had to study in Pala for 2 years and after that it was all Vadakara until the Chief Entrance Commissioner ordered me to study in GEC Thrissur
Yep.. Porotta Sindabaaad.. :-)
I love that movie and the book too.. Only English movie that has done justice to the book .. I beleive. Chupke Chupke, Angoor, Choti Se Baath , Golmaal those were real humour.

Congrats for 50th post! How "Notting Hill" came to the list? I didn't like that film much...."World this week" was one of my favourite too.

I love the movies Thoovanathumbikal and Chupke Chupke.

You have been to a lot of places man.

I love all the books in your list especially MT's, Padmarajan's and Basheer's. I first read Mayyazhipuzhayude Theerangalil when it was published in Mathrubhumi Weekly. Khasakinte Ithihasngal is simply superb.

And congratulations on your half century.

So wht is the Achayan's territory??

Kadavule.. when I saw the book list.. I realized that i haven't read any of the Malayalam books. I should start reading malayalam books..I heard so many people talking about kazhakkinte ithihasam..

~venus - Welcome here. Beers nothing better than KF ;) Cars yes... drinving through the AutoBahns
~alexis - Not much Alexis, but yes on bikes a lot. Most areas around Pune only. Mayyazhi Puzhayude is really class apart. I can often relate the language and places as Mahe is just near to my place. And Thanks :-)
~Sarah - Pala is supposed to be an Achayan's territory. My mom is from Pala and I had 2 years of schooling there. If you havent read those then may be you are missing something, especially Khasak which is often said to be dividing the Malayalam literature. Khasakinu Mumpum , Khasakinu Sheshavum. It is often rated at the same level as Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude. You can buy books at this site www.dcbookstore.com

Dhanush said...
