This is one sweet tag I have taken, again from my friend Srijith‘s blog! God, I am loving these tags! Why didn’t you stick me in to this previously? It had to wait a long 100 posts to do some tagging. But “Ellaathinum oru samayamundu Daasa” 🙂
This one is about 6 questions and 6 personalities. I didn’t consider my family and other close acquaitances when doing this tag, esp. in the case of personalities. Personalities is a random selection. It involves people I adore, people I have looked with amazement, and also people who touched my emotions and feelings.
6 Questions: –
- Since sound is also a form of energy, it should not get destroyed. There should be only a change of state. We can also change matter from one state to another. So, is it possible to recreate the sounds once produced? In the same order, same sequence etc.? If possible, this could produce OUTSTANDING results!
- Are the colours and objects perceived the same way by all people? For example, I have a perception in my mind on seeing the picture of Sachin Tendulkar. Is it the same perception another person gets when seeing the same picture? Ditto the case with colours.
- The eye power of humans and animals may or may not be the same. If it is not, can animals like dogs see something more than what we all can?
- I have studied in my Physics class that the universe is expanding. But for something to expand, there should be enough space around it. If there is enough space around the universe, then what is the limit of the universe and what exists beyond it? An independent something existing in something else? That sounds rubbish. For example, for a balloon to expand on puffing, there needs to be some air surrounding it. Consider the universe to be a balloon. Then what is the air around it? Is it not part of universe? Remember, when we say universe, we mean everything. Then how can it expand and where is it expanding to?
- How will I meet with my end?
- What is death and what happens after it?
6 Personalities: –
- Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose: – The unsung hero of Indian independence movement. I simply adore this man, who built an army from just one man to around 80,000. The man who openly challenged the British with his Chalo Delhi slogan. The man who fought and defeated the invaders in the South East part of India, before he was impelled to withdraw due to natural calamities and disease spreads. The man who wasn’t afraid to shed his blood for his motherland. When he stated Britain had not yet invented a weapon to kill Subhas Chandra Bose, he really meant it. The man who altercated with Tojo when the latter hailed him as the Indian president. The man who was courageous enough to escape in disguise, from the British clutches. The man who went to the Nazi Germany alone to seek Adolf Hitler’s assistance for his fights against the British. The man who scrapped with Hitler when the latter question his political background and experience. Even Mohandas Gandhi praised him as the “Prince among patriots” and went on to say that “Bose’s patriotism was second to none”.
- MS Baburaj: – To me, the best Malayalam composer. The one man who brought the ups, downs and all curves of Hindustani music into Malayalam film industry. Songs like “Thaamasamenthe varuvan”, “Pranasakhi njan verumore”, “Oru pushpam mathramen”, “Anuragagaanam pole” are enough to give him an immortal status in Malayalam music category. Even after a hundred years, Baburaj’s compositions would stay in tact since those are full of emotions and feelings than just words and music.
- Srinivasa Ramanujan: – The greatest Indian mathematician ever. He was destined to change and create history. One man who was confined to the religious beliefs and lacked a decent educational status…. it was so improbable for Ramanujan to climb the steps to fame and glory. But since he was destined for it, his mother gave him permission to go abroad (cross the sea) and acquire more knowledge. The one man who passed only in Mathematics in his school exams, it would have been impossible for him to study abroad had there not been one GH Hardy. A natural with the subject, Ramanujan stands tall as an icon and his story betokens the busts of our educational system. Rules were revised to allow Ramanujan study in Cambridge since he did not have any basic qualification. Also this is a warning to all the parents worldwide, to nurture the talents your kid has got rather than trying to bring down your own tastes and ambitions into those tiny brains.
- Sydney Barnes: – The unvalued English cricketer. One of the very best bowlers to have played the game of cricket. Largely forgotten these days, he was a match winner on any given day. Hardly required to bowl for long, Barnes was an asset to the English cricket team of the early 20th century. The only English cricketer to wear the national blazer coming directly from minor cricket. 189 wickets from just 27 test matches, with a bowling average of 16 plus. Basically a leg spinner, he was one of the first generation players of the 20th century to have used all kinds of bowling variations into his work. Compared with him, Shane Warne who???
- Oduvil Unnikrishnan: – The best actor I have ever seen on the screen. A common man next door. Everything so natural, whether it be plain acting, casual singing, engaging in daily chores, emotional scenes…. everything. His performance in “Thoovalkkottaram” stands out and is an example for what natural acting is all about. Living as his character in that film and was deservedly honoured with the state award for the best supporting actor.
- Fidel Castro: – Not for his political strategies and moves, just for the potential this man has got. A great fighter, a rebel and a great and acceptable human being. The man who ousted Fulgencio Batista to throne himself as the Cuban chief decades and decades ago. The leader of a small country that survived all the threats from a blood sucking United States. The man who overcame their threats from the first to thus far. Undoubtedly, one of the best paladins in terms of survival of the fittest.
