70. Goodbye Friends - Its time for dormancy!

As I need to stop and take a look at what's further ahead in my career, I need to temporarily say Good-bye from you all, to prepare and do some research and studying. But dont worry, rest assured, I'll definitely be back ( but not sure when - maybe in a few weeks or even after a couple of months), and I may not stop at your blogs as well during this period.

Keep continuing all your wonderful writings and trust me on my faith - I'll be back! :)

Women, Women .........and what men want from women!
After having written a post on what women want from men, here is another fun-intended post on what men want from women. Now I know all the beautiful ladies out there are also equally broad-minded to take things easy, so read through it and have fun!

What men want in women - Age 20 plus
1. Nothing you say changes your appearance - and we dont need you to entice us with your humour. The way you walk, talk and cook is just enough to invoke a roar of laugher in us!
2. Smartness is great, but not at home, as we have enough of it at office! If you start talking about calculus, then we start having an exponentially overwhelming desire to produce that much kids!
3. Violet,Indigo,Blue, Green,Yellow and Red are the only colors we know - please pista is a tastey food recipe and hell no its not a color!
4. "Rosy lips and rosy cheeks" is a good idiom that we love on movies, but we dont expect you to be that way - so please use lipstick to add a little texture, and dont frighten us as if you were the daughter of dracula!
5. We highly appreciate tears due to laughter, but its very very bad to use them as worse as a nuclear weapon. We vehemently disagree to the idea of crying just because
you couldnt find your favorite perfume that was used by the grandma of Kate Winslet when Titanic was sinking!
6. 20-30's is the best time to have kids, and no you will never become suddenly ugly by having kids, unless you were already that way before!

What men want in women - Age 30 plus
1. Some cooked vegetables, or a soup, and some cooked cereal(rice or wheat) is a great and simple meal - heavensake no, Pizza is not a term in dictionary that says " a lovely and gratifying meal for mystic souls"
2. We dont mind you using a skin care, a facial cleanser, an eyebrow tweeter, lipstick or even a perfume- but for christs sake remember Fridge is meant to store foods
and medicine and not your next year's stock of cosmetics!
3. Its in our magnanimous minds to appreciate beauty wherever it is - but that doesnt mean you need to be suspicious and start smelling our shirts snorting like a pig or explore the entire contents of our bag, dont worry we are committed!
4. We really appreciate you thinking us as the pal of King kong, but the reality is we are not that macho's and no no no please dont expect us to carry you when the fact is you are growing like a zombie!
5. If it itches then we shall scratch be it in public or at home because its natural - and its a really bad idea to travel 100 miles to a beauty parlor to just scratch your head!
6. Its true - most of us like sports and we are good sportsmen, but that doesnt mean you need to ask us, a frikking 1000 times " do you love me?" in front of mother! Nope, this is not the game we like to play between the mother-in-law and daugter-in-law!

What men want in women - 40 plus
1. We insist you not wearing heals because of two reasons - i) its no longer good for the bones, and if you slip and fall it will definitely break your bones ii) we are getting old too and we dont want heals to be used as a weapon any more!
2. Please dont test our confidence and patience by repeatedly asking some dangerous questions as "Can you please hold me?" or "Am I looking beautiful" or " Oh my gosh! Am I growing fat?"
3. We understand memory loss starts from now on, but please dont torture us by asking "Is Kung-fu a chinese fast food?"
4. Please dont scare the kids by skipping! Our neighbours are not patient enough to live with the mild tremors caused in their backyard due to this!
5. We highly appreciate your enthusisam and love for sports, but please understand see-saw is strictly meant for kids, and remember next time you break it trying to sit on it, you are spoiling the kids fun!

What men want in women - 50 plus!
1. We always like only sugar in coffee and never salt in it - so please wear your spectacles when you are in kitchen!
2. Please remember to open thy mouth only for three things: to eat food and medicine, to kiss and to yawn - opening the mouth for talking is the most dangerous weapon of all and saying something as "I cant believe you're going to let me go on and on like this" would be considered inappropriate when all you had to do was carry some goodies from mall to car.
3. We always believe in two way communication, but as you forget that at times, and go-in jiberring non-chalantly like a one way traffic that extends for 1000 miles, we need to remind you every now and then and that we also need a chance to talk!
4. We understand you no longer have interest in sports, but please dont trouble us over and over again by asking "What magic did Magic johnson do?"

What men want in women - 60 plus!
Forget it after having lived with them for 20 plus years, we lose all our capacity to think, to smell and to see that we become a mere living dead tissue, so we no longer expect anything from women!

Phew! This is my complete imagination, sorry if its little too sarcastic - just read it for fun!

67. நவீன ரொமான்ஸ்!
ஓட்டம் ஓட்டம் ஓட்டம்! கால ஓட்டத்தின் சுழர்ச்சியில் ஈடுகொடுக்க முடியாமல் இன்றைய பெரும்பாலான இல்லங்களில் நிம்மதியில்லை! இந்த வேகத்தினால் உறவுகள் நலிந்து வருவதை பற்றி நான் இங்கு விவரிக்கப்போவதில்லை, நம்மால முடிஞ்சது ஹாஸ்யமாய் ஒரு பதிவுதான்! இன்றைய ரொமான்ஸ் எப்படியிருக்கும்னு ஒரு சின்ன கற்பனை - நான், நீ-ன்னு இருவர் பேசுவதைப்போல, நான்கிறது ஒரு பெண்ணாவும் இருக்கலாம், இல்ல ஆணாவும் இருக்கலாம், நீங்கிறது அதேமாதிரி ஆணாவும் இருக்கலாம், பெண்ணாவும் இருக்கலாம், டி.ஆர் நடைல இருக்கும், வழக்கம் போல் படித்துவிட்டு சிரித்துவிடுங்கள்!

நான்: கண்ணே நீ என்னருகில் இருந்தால், கடல் முழுவதும் குடிப்பேன் in one gulp,
நீ: "கண்டதையும் குடிச்சுட்டு பேதியாச்சுன்னா, எவன் ஆஸ்பத்திரிக்கு கூட்டிட்டு போகறது" எனச்சொல்லி குடுத்தாய் பல்பு!!

நான்: கண்ணே உனக்காக சமைத்து தருவேன் கோசு!
நீ: வெந்தும் வேகாததை எவன்டா தின்பான் லூசு!

நான்: கண்ணே, உன் கால்கள் வலிக்கிறதா, என் நினைவுகளில் இன்று முழுவதும் நடந்தாய்
நீ: மொதல்ல ரோட்ட ஒழுங்கா க்ராஸ் பண்ணுடா பன்னாடை, என்று நீ ஒழுங்காக ரோட்டை கடந்தாய்??

நான்: ஆப்பிரிகா சிங்கமே,
ஆர்ப்பரிக்கும் தங்கமே,
கடலில் உள்ளதோ முத்து
உனக்கு நான் தருவேன் என் சொத்து!
நீ: அறிவுகெட்ட முண்டமே,
லாயக்கில்லாத தண்டமே,
நீயோ ஒரு வெத்து,
உன் மூஞ்சில விடுவேன் குத்து!

நான்: காற்றில் வரும் கீதமே,
நீயே என் வாழ்வின் நாதமே!
நீ: காற்றில் வருவது உன் சத்தமே!
ஒழுங்கா பல் தேய்ச்சா போகுமே உன் நாத்தமே!

நான்: கண்ணே உன் வார்த்தையோ தித்திக்கும் கரும்பு,
நீயே என் வாழ்வில் தூண் போன்ற இரும்பு
நீ: வாயை மூடுடா கஸ்மாலம்
இல்லேனா உன்னை கொன்னுடுவேன் நெஸ்மாலும்!

ஸ்ஸஸஸபா இதுக்கு மேல் தாங்காதுடா சாமி, வாங்க வழக்கம் போல காறி துப்பிட்டு போங்க!

66. Top 10 Simple & Beneficial Foods for a Healthy Life!

Last week was very busy for me, and I couldnt stop at most of your blogs - sorry folks will stop by sometime!

How we look, how we feel, how healthy we are and how we perform all narrows down to one - What we eat! After having written a funny post on tummy, I wanted to write a 10 pointer on simple easy to buy foods that could be beneficial to us, help us feel energetic and improve our health and battle against body fat

Note: These foods works best when combined with an all round regular exercise regimen( it could be anything from stretching your arms and legs or walking on the treadmill for atleast half an hour everyday).

1. Oatmeal

Oats are slow to digest and provide you a steady sustained flow of energy to take you through the first few hours of the day. Its always good to have a oatmeal with a cup of milk for breakfast everyday!

2. Tomatoes

Tomatoes are rich in carotenoid - which have proved to improve immunity as well as the risk of developing heart attacks. To gain more resistance eat more tomatoes, but folks with Kidney trouble you'd better consult your physician before eating this!

3. Almonds

Little do we realize that not only do almonds provide teaste and texture to foods, they also provide more complete nutrition than you can imagine - One ounce of almond contains 12% of the daily allowance of the protein you need and 35% of daily allowance of Vitamin E - A antidoxidant in fighting cancer! If you are pregnant, Almonds are a definite add-on to your diet as they provide you the folic acid you need!

4. Fish

Salmon tops the list with the best fish amongst the other fishes, to be had in your food. I really dont know how it tastes or even a cooked fish looks like, but for all you non-vegetarians, remember this is one great source for all your protein! Include fish in your food atleast 1-2 times a week!

5. Milk

Lets not forget that this is best source of calcium which prevents our bones from becoming weak and helps against developing osteoporosis later in life! But watch-out few develop allergies by consuming milk. Milk isnt the perfect food, but is still good in its various forms and its always good to have a cup of milk everyday

6. Apple

Apples are rich in pectin fibre, that helps in keeping the blood cholesterol levels in balance and importantly help in controlling appetite levels, thus aiding us in our battle against overeating.

7. Tea

The golden beverage of all time - its helps in reducing the risk of cancer, heart attack and Parkinson's disease. Also know as the Wonder drug - tea has "Theanine" an amino acid unique to tea that delays' ageing(isnt that great!), helps fighting viral infection, and helps prevent blood clotting!

8. Garlic

A little smelly though, Garlic keeps your heart healthy, wards off your cough and cold problems and reduces cholesterol. Teenagers with acne problems - this is one natural solution to keep acne away and it is also a natural mosquito repellant! But a lot of folks have allergy to garlic too - symptoms including skin rash, headaches and so on, hence consult your doctor if you experience trouble when eating garlic

9. Kidney Beans

Why Kidney beans? Because they are an excellent source of Iron, folate as well as magnesium. Folks with diabetes this is your best medicine as its rich fiber prevents your blood sugar rising rapidly after a sumptuous meal!

10. Finally Water - the elixir of life

The functions of water go beyond just hydration. They include aiding digestion, weight loss, regulating body temperature, aiding the kidney in excretion, lubricating our joints and the list goes on and on and on....
