Straight Angle™: Mangallapuram!!
Tuesday, July 12, 2005
That's how I came to know this city for the first time...that was when I was in my first job in Calicut....I was to travel to my reagional office in Karnataka from Kerala and I never come to understand the reason why Keralites called Mangalore as Mangalapuram...they seldom use Mangalore and I was confused at first on the real name of the city...even now I hadn't understood the reasons, nevertheless I had got used to the name.....
So, When I reached here yesterday, I felt no different from the dozens of times that I came to the same station at around the same time by the same train...I didn't feel any different from going to TAPMI...the difference was palpable only when I went to take an auto, rather than the usual bus that we take to Manipal.
The city is a sleppy little town with nothing much called an evening life..let alone night life..the city resembles it's Kerala brethren across the border...with lush green coconut trees, with sand stone walls, with temples of the same shape and people with the same features.....I mean there are so many similarities between the people of the two regions...The city that produced the "Blue eyes of one of the most beautiful women in the world" and the women herself, keeps producing them even now...it's just that the blue eyes aren't yet spotted by the world.
But, the sole purpose of me going to Chennai had not been solved...It was to meet up with a friend of mine and settle some misunderstandings between us....he had been very close to me(or so I thought)..it rather ended in a very sore note. I get mad at people, when they hurt me with words intentionally and say, "I said it as a matter of fact....it is a casual remark....it carries no significance...it is a passing remark"...
When you utter a word, don't you expect something out of it....I don't believe in words spoken for the sake of it, without seeking to accomplish something....If you speak something and mean it, then accept that you meant it...don't pretend that you didn't mean it and don't act that you hadn't hurt anyone...and for heaven's sake, don't justify that you didn't mean it....If you don't mean something, don't say it....
Huh....How does that matter???...
