Dedicated to Amma, Appa, Minnu, Ammumma and Kamal Hassan (My Hero)

I write this in the tunes of Ilayaraja’s ‘Ninaivo Oru Paravai’ from the movie Sigappu Rojaakkal’ and I don’t know why but I am reminded of the origins of this blog.

Teacher : Eathu departmentaa?

Me : Engl- English. English Department. First Yearaa.

She smiled at me and pointed towards the room on the left. I ran (okay, I admit, I walked fast) towards the place and stood near the door. It had already started; The meeting. My first day at college had just begun.

The thing that they (our seniors) used to scare us with had a length of two words : Continue reading

Sex as Taboo

shh

The teacher had asked the kid to stand up and read a paragraph from the book. She was fluent in English – very fluent.. and read in an almost British accent. But she came to a sudden halt – a short quick pause. The chapter was about the story of a sailor who had contracted AIDS and so the word ‘sex’ was inevitable. It was here that Continue reading
