Due to the lack of para-military forces, security was declined for the IPL matches and the govt asked the IPL organisers to postpone the matches.But the board members were reluctant for the procrastination(Since the dates wud clash with international matches.)and shifted the venue to South Africa.With this kinda scenario its needless to say how the parties will do their maximum efforts in politicising the issue for their political gains Esp.When the elections are round the corner.Adding to this IPL organisers too expressed their disappointment over the rejection of security.And everyone created a scene as if conducting IPL matches in the subcontinent is a matter of national pride.Claiming security for 52 matches in the midst of Gen.Elecs is not an easy thing.(Even the Gen.Elecs are conducted in multiple phases jus coz of the lack of numbers in police forces.)To be more precise its not even a much significant World cup or Asian games which involves many countries,so that to seek for para-military forces.Then why this much fuss for a Local County cricket tournament? This IPL episode clearly shows cricket in India taking too much privilege over other sports.What will happen if the IPL matches are conducted frequently in the coming years? Do the security people don’t have any other job than guarding these over hyped county tournaments?

Lets deal with a classic song from one of the Best combo in Tamil Cinema K.Balachandar – Ilaiyaraaja – Vaalee – SPB.What’s so special abt this song to write off ? Its the situation matters.A duet or a peppy or even a pathos won’t do justice for this kinda situation.First lets see the situation b4 going to the song.
With total frustration,Rahman goes on a journey without knowing the destination.On the way he gets introduced to Sithara,a nice relationship blossoms between them which makes Rahman on top of the world Esp.when he is yearning for a person with whom he could share his past life burdens.
At this type of scenario the song has to reflect Rahman’s state of mind i.e.a blend of his present happiness and past bitterness instead of usual duet or pathos.That’s what done by the amazing trio KB – Raja – Vaalee in an amazing style.See the Raja’s Magic here,the song wud have poignancy but @ the same time it won’t have complete pathos feel like Oorai Therinchukitten Or Raaja Enbaar Manithiri Enbaar and here we also need to mention Vaalee’s Lyrics which captures the Rahman’s Life in jus two lines
நான் போட்ட பூமாலை மணம் சேர்க்கவில்லை
நீ தானே எனக்காக மடல் பூத்த முல்லை!!!
And here comes the classic and my most favt lines
நீங்காத பாரம் என் நெஞ்சோடு தான்
நான் தேடும் சுமைதாங்கி நீ அல்லவா!!
நான் வாடும் நேரம் உன் மார்போடுதான்
நீ என்னை தாலாட்டும் தாய்யல்லவா!!!
