    Pettai: Fan-made Video

    Here is a fan-video I made for upcoming Rajinikanth’s Tamil movie – Petta. This is a crafts-themed video, with the woollen thread craft made by Ramya and the paper cup craft made at a recent show we went to. I have animated Tamil characters for the first time. Do you like it? 🙂 Destination Infinity

    New WordPress Gutenberg Editor & Atomic Blocks Theme ROCK!!

    As you maybe knowing by now, I have a Video & Powerpoint Creation Website. I am using self-hosted version of WordPress in that site also.  Recently, WordPress released an update (5.0) where they changed the current TinyMCE editor to blocks-based Gutenberg editor. For my other website, wowsuper.net, I had used a premium theme with a theme-builder that enabled me to build my homepage using sections. But this update broke that theme-builder plugin, so I was looking for alternative themes – preferably one that was built for/supports Gutenberg editor.  WordPress themselves have released the Twenty Nineteen theme that integrates fully with Gutenberg. In fact, in the distraction-free version of the editor interface,…

    3 success stories of young people who became wealthy after investing

    Is there a sure short mantra that one can apply to investing? After all, the core purpose of investing is to create wealth for the future. But there is nothing like any one single way or one simple way. As Euclid put it very succinctly, “Excellency, there is no royal road to Geometry”. Similarly, there is no royal road to investing. An investment journey has to necessarily combine home work, diligence, patience, discipline, conviction and pragmatism. It is only when you combine these 6 attributes that you can actually create wealth through investments. Before we get into specific cases and approaches to how this is done, let us look at…

    Boating in Chennai: Chetpet Eco Park

    I have written about my Chetpet Eco Park boating experience before. That was 3-years ago. So I thought why not revisit the park now and see what new amenities have been added for tourists, so this blog post. Let’s start with a short overview video of the Chetpet Eco Park.  The first striking difference I noticed was the addition of new paintings and information boards. These are really beautiful. I saw a few stone models/sculptures too, but I have seen them during my previous visit.  Last time, there was a small food court near the children’s play area. But this time, they have made a (separate) larger food court on…

    A Couple of Dreams: Follow their Journey in India!!

    A Couple of Dreams is the Youtube Channel run by adventurous couple Ashley (from UK) & Rotem (from Israel). They are on an 8-month trip to India trying to accomplish 100 Dreams/Challenges, which I guess they’d put up on their YT channel along with their travel vlogs. We (Me and Ramya) spoke to the couple of dreams over a Video Call today, and we were mighty impressed with their dreams and aspirations. Just like us, but stretching it far beyond what we would dare, they have ditched the routine life and are on a exploratory journey in an unknown land. They are currently in Goa and have already uploaded a…

    2.0 Movie Review: No Logic, but VFX makes movie Enjoyable :)

    So we watched 2.0 Tamil movie today at Sathyam Cinemas, Royapettah. We were waiting for the right movie to visit this famous theatre and this film did not let us down. 2.0 is an excellent entertainer as far as Action and VFX is considered. But if you are a serious movie watcher who expects logic, characterisation, story, etc. this movie may not live up to your expectations. The Bad The first thing that was very odd in this movie was – the villain fights for the right reason (his way of fighting may be wrong.. but still we are clearly able to empathise with his cause). In most movies we…

    The (Rail) Coach Restaurant @ Chennai Rail Museum

    The Chennai Rail Museum has opened a new A/C Restaurant inside its premises, aptly titled – ‘The Coach Restaurant’. I got to know that this is the first restaurant built inside an actual rail coach, in India. The second one is coming up in Mumbai – it seems. Since this venue is closer to our house (ICF – Villivakkam) it’s easy for us to go there whenever. We went to the Chennai Rail Museum again to have a look at this newly opened restaurant and the metal sculptures made with scrap materials (I am yet to make a video for it – will share the blog post once it is…

    Imaginarium – Review

    Imaginarium advertises itself as ‘India’s first Live Arts show with Rob’. That’s very true. Except that the show was not only about arts, but it was about crafts, magic, humour, audio-video displays, and lots of interactivity. Better, they even gave us DIY art/craft kits with which audience learned to draw a superhero along with Rob, and completed a few other arts/crafts follow-along exercises. We went to the show on Dec. 1, 2018 (Sat Afternoon 12 P.M.) at Sir Mutha Venkatasubbarao Concert Hall, Harrington Road, Chetpet. Frankly we didn’t know what to expect. At the ticketing area where they exchanged the online passes for tickets, they gave us a DIY kit…

    Who is Your Favourite Heroine?

    Normally, this is a very easy question to answer. I would have even give answers in multiples of ten(s) had someone asked me this question during my college days. But giving an answer to the question, ‘who is your favourite heroine’ is quite difficult, when someone asks me after marriage. Especially when that someone happens to be my wife. This question is a double-edged sword. And being honest is only going to work against you. So, I have a strategy. Whenever my wife asks me this question (yeah, they ask the same question multiple times) I tell her that my favourite heroine is ‘Aishwarya Rajesh‘. Of course, she acts well…
