Pudhumozhi...

Note: Tam-specific post. Apologies to the rest.


********************************************************************

When life gives you a lemon...

Tie a chilli with it, and use it to ward off evil...
********************************************************************

If at first, you don't succeed...

Join any engineering college, you can always attempt the IIT-JEE next year...
********************************************************************

Let not thy left hand know...

that it is considered too impure to touch the food on your plate...
********************************************************************

Early to bed, and early to rise...

Just don't make me play Suprabhatam thrice...
********************************************************************

All is fair in love...

and that's why we mention it in the matrimonial classifieds...
********************************************************************

Cleanliness is next to...

Madi, Acharam, Patthu, Ecchil...
********************************************************************

Don't cut off your nose...

Lakshmanan already did that to spite Surpanakha's face...
********************************************************************

Don't wash your dirty linen...

after all, what do we pay the Vannaan for?
********************************************************************

Fools rush in...

We prefer to wait in the queue at the bus stop...
********************************************************************

It is no use crying...

and no, you are NOT allowed to spill that milk!!!

    @ Liberal:
    the insanities make us who we are... and am sure every community has its own quirks... just that I am not aware of them :)

    @ anand:
    hiyya, monk commented!!!

    would you believe it if I said that this was sparked by seeing a rickshaw driver carefully buy a lemon+chilli string at a traffic signal...

    but yeah, the ceiling-a paathu yosikarathu sounds more intelluctual, so let's go with that!

    Home is where the filter coffee is.
    Failure is the stepping stone to shaming your entire IIT family.
    Where there is a will, there is Rama.
