This story begins when I was a child: I was born poor. Often we hadn't enough to eat. Whenever we had some food, Mother often gave me her portion of rice. While she was transferring her rice into my bowl, she would say "Eat this rice, son! I'm not hungry."
This was Mother's First Lie.
As I grew, Mother gave up her spare time to fish in a river near our house; she hoped that from the fish she caught, she could give me a little bit more nutritious food for my growth. Once she had caught just two fish, she would make fish soup. While I was eating the soup, mother would sit beside me and eat the what was still left on the bone of the fish I had eaten, My heart was touched when I saw it. Once I gave the other fish to her on my chopstick but she immediately refused it and said, "Eat this fish, son! I don't really like fish."
This was Mother's Second Lie.
Then, in order to fund my education, Mother went to a Match Factory to bring home some used matchboxes, which she filled with fresh matchsticks. This help ed her get some money to cover our needs. One wintry night I awoke to find Mother filling the matchboxes by candlelight. So I said, "Mother, go to sleep; it's late: you can continue working tomorrow morning." Mother smiled and said "Go to sleep, son! I'm not tired."
This was Mother's Third Lie.
When I had to sit my Final Examination, Mother accompanied me. After dawn, Mother waited for me for hours in the heat of the sun. When the bell rang, I ran to meet her.. Mother embraced me and poured me a glass of tea that she had prepared in a thermos. The tea was not as strong as my Mother's love, Seeing Mother covered with perspiration, I at once gave her my glass and asked her to drink too. Mother said "Drink, son! I'm not thirsty!".
This was Mother's Fourth Lie.
After Father's death, Mother had to play the role of a single parent. She held on to her former job; she had to fund our needs alone. Our family's life was more complicated. We suffered from starvation. Seeing our family's condition worsening, my kind Uncle who lived near my house came to help us solve our problems big and small. Our other neighbors saw that we were poverty stricken so they often advised my mother to marry again. But Mother refused to remarry saying "I don't need love."
This was Mother's Fifth Lie.
After I had finished my studies and gotten a job, it was time for my old Mother to retire but she carried on going to the market every morning just to sell a few vegetables. I kept sending her money but she was steadfast and even sent the money back to me. She said, "I have enough money."
That was Mother's Sixth Lie.
I continued my part-time studies for my Master's Degree. Funded by the American Corporation for which I worked, I succeeded in my studies. With a big jump in my salary, I decided to bring Mother to enjoy life in America but Mother didn't want to bother her son; she said to me "I'm not used to high living."
That was Mother's Seventh Lie.
In her dotage, Mother was attacked by cancer and had to be hospitalized. Now living far across the ocean, I went home to visit Mother who was bedridden after an operation. Mother tried to smile but I was heartbroken because she was so thin and feeble but Mother said, "Don't cry, son! I'm not in pain."
That was Mother's Eighth Lie.
Telling me this, her eighth lie, she died. YES, MOTHER WAS AN ANGEL! M - O - T - H - E - R
"M" is for the Million things she gave me,
"O" means Only that she's growing old,
"T" is for the Tears she shed to save me,
"H" is for her Heart of gold,
"E" is for her Eyes with love-light shining in them,
"R" means Right, and right she'll always be,
Put them all together, they spell "MOTHER" a word that means the world to me.
For those of you who are lucky to be still blessed with your Mom's presence on Earth, this story is beautiful. For those who aren't so blessed, this is even more beautiful.
I have received this email a lot of times... but today when i received it ..a lot of things came to my mind... so am blogging it here...

ചിങ്ങത്തിലെ തിരുവോണത്തിന് 27 ദിവസം മുമ്പ് കര്ക്കിടകത്തിലെ തിരുവോണനാളിലാണ് പിള്ളേരോണം കൊണ്ടായിടിരുന്നത്. തിരുവോണത്തിന്റെ ഒരു കൊച്ചുപതിപ്പ്. തൂശനിലയില് പരിപ്പും പപ്പടവും ഉള്പ്പെടെ എല്ലാ വിഭവങ്ങളുമുള്ള ഗംഭീര സദ്യ. കുട്ടികളുടെ ഓണം

Yesterday i heard that shocking news when i was on the way to airport to recieve my brother.
I couldn't believe it.. someone who was very healthy, active, preparing for a comeback tour... died of cardiac arrest?
It was really a shocking mews for me... i was thinking about the article which i read on BBC website the previous day. It stated that Michael Jackson will be using around 3,00,000 Swarovski crystals in his costume for the come back show. Am sure he would have been practising a lot... becasue he has to keep up the expection of his fans who belive he can perform the same way he did in 80's and early 90's.
Whatever the reason for his death... what the world lost is king of pop. Yes its true, there wasnt any other KING OF POP. And although he had to pass through lot of difficulties especialy in his personal life, he was able to hold that title -- King of Pop.
I remmeber my childhood days when we used to watch Michael Jackson songs in 'Doordarshan Metro' channel in TV. At that time there wasnt any cable TV. The only way we were able to watch some pop music was through the 2 hours broadcast of MTV in DD Metro. it was in the eighties. i still remember the "Earth song" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4FZcAzZOyOg . Althought i coundt grasp all the lyrics of that song, i loved the theme, music and visual effects in it. And i still remember the "rewinding of life". Especialy the scence in which the dead man wakes up(eyes open), Dead Elephant grows tusk again etc.
A song which touched me a lot was which was made up by MJs initiative was "We are the world". And when i find more about the story behind the song, the reason why
the song was made, the reason why prominent artists performed for it, how Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie organised it...I belive it showed another face of MJ..not just that of king of pop...but also of someone who loves and care.
Whenever i read something about his personal life..the tragedies, the problems he had..the only reason he was having it was becasue of the burden of being a star in the childhood itslef.. am sure he never had a normal childhood..his life was always that of a star...a burden i would say.. and it deprived him a lot of things..maybe good friends, maybe the experience to face ups and down in life, true value of money. etc. Was that because of his lost childhood days he made "neverland" ??? to get back his child hood...?? no one knows.
when i write this..a feeling of sadness is gripping me..why ? i dont know ..is that becasue world lost king of pop? or is that becase of a child star who was depreived of his childhood?. or is it becasue he was the one made a song like "we are the world".....i dont know....
But am sure that am feeling an emptiness...
Long Live MJ... Rest in Peace. Your songs, your moonwalk, your life,...will live in our heart.
Below are some videos which is worth watching.
"We are the world" - it touched me
Moonwalk -- Amazing, never seen it done better than MJ
The Jackson Five - I Want You Back - Michael jackson (5 years?) and his brothers
Reminds me about the " Vimochana Samaram " stories which my father, grandfather and grandulce used to tell me.

The Google guys are back again with a cool stuff. Now they are talking about something new called Google Wave.
Its realy nice to see the way google surprises everyone. They know how to do it and the reason we are surprised is that, if they unviel something..it will be sensational. few examples are Google search, Gmail, Google Earth... and although Youtube and Orkut is part of Google now, orginaly it was not started by Google.
Am sure this Google wave will make wave among internet users. When i saw the presentation, i was wondering how the google team was able to think beyond the normal convention of email, messengers, sharing etc etc. Now they have integrated it into a single thing... and they have done it beautifully. If the prototype itslef is interesting am sure when they launch it will be a sensation. Lets wait and see..
More about Google wave is here..
Below is the presentation of Google Wave
Something interesting to watch....
Presented at the Library of Congress by Dr. Michael Wesch, on June 23rd 2008.
Dr. Michael is assistant professor of cultural anthropology at Kansas State University.
Its 55 minute presentation... but its worth the time you spend.. something to think about... how the world(only cyber?) is changing.. how the world(only cyber?) is coming closer.. how the world(only cyber?) is being redrawn without boundries..
