On Eve of Womens Day . కొమ్మ చెక్కితే బొమ్మ రా...కొలిచి మొక్కితే అమ్మ రా by Ande Sree

I'm not a great follower of Womens Day or any such days. But seeing few I know getting sentimental about "Womens Day" , I post this wonderful song కొమ్మ చెక్కితే బొమ్మ రా... కొలిచి మొక్కితే అమ్మ రా.Just focus on the Lyrics. Song is written by Ande Sri an Nandi Awardee resident of Warangal , Telangana.

There's an interesting story attached to this song "కొమ్మ చెక్కితే బొమ్మ రా...కొలిచి మొక్కితే అమ్మ రా " . My friend Lakshmana Chary once took Andey Sri to Medaram the holy shrine of great women warriors "Sammakka & Sarakka". Its an tribals holy shrine. Lakshmana Chary introduced Andey Sri to Tribal Woman Priest of the Temple and asked her to give Garland as blessing. Woman Chief Priest for some unknown reasons got miffed and she refused.

Both Chary & Ande Sri walked a distance and sat on floor. Knowing Andey Sri poetry skills Chary asked him to sing a song in honour of tribal deities , Ande Sri sang "కొమ్మ చెక్కితే బొమ్మ రా...కొలిచి మొక్కితే అమ్మ రా " . Iam told by Chary that he sang so emotionally that he felt the vibrations across the Medaram temple. The result is Woman Chief Priest who refused earlier , took out the Garland from main idol rushed to put it on Andey Sri and apologised.

Woman Chief Priest of tribal shrine who refused earlier was so moved to song that much against the ritual went on to bless Ande Sri by honouring him inside the sancta-sanctorum.

Brief Intro of Andey Sri : Andey Sri never went to school he is an illiterate yet writes beautiful poetry, Goddess Saraswati resides on his tongue. He is an orphan and a Dalit , his mother discarded him after his birth for unknown reasons.  Former president of Viswa-Hindu-Parishad (VHP) and Telugu Head Of Dept Osmania University Biruduraju Rama Raju of Madikonda village groomed Ande sri. Andey Sri considers himself a foster son of Mr Rama Raju.

Film : ENEMY & Gone Girl.

Watched "Gone Girl " & "Enemy" ... tell me if you understood the climax. Slow but watchable . Both are thrillers. For sure the climax will keep troubling you for days to come.

"Enemy" is a must watch film , its very hard to keep the track of the events , wonderful psycho-thriller which will keep you engrossed, but at the same times confuse you. It narrates about male psychology and his never ending amatory relationships. Due to his uncontrollable libidinous nature he creates a Enemy.

I bet , if any one of you can narrate the climax of the film. ENEMY is one such psychological thriller which does not answer anything even in the end . It raises more questions in the last scene of the film. Enemy is one and only film whose storyline can be interpreted in 10 different ways. At times you feel as if its an art film with Zero commercial element.

Note : Very slow film , Pl dont Fast-Forward while watching. Hardcore Telugu/Hindi films "First Day - First Show" goers, stay away , this film is not for you.

Prize : If any of you narrates the story after watching the film , I'll give you a treat in HYD irani cafe with cutting-chai and osmania biscuits

February 19 : Chhatrapati Shivaji Jayanti.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj founded the Hindu Kingdom  in the Deccan against all odds, fighting against the mighty Mughals. He inspired and united the masses to fight the tyranny of Mughal ruler Aurangzeb, by inculcating a sense of pride and nationality in them. Shivaji Maharaj successfully led and marshalled his forces to cope and overcome several major enemy invasions of his territories. He was also relentless in expand-ing his Kingdom's boundaries.

At the age of 16, he took a pledge to establish a sovereign Hindu state. He outshines all the Rulers and Generals of Bharat in the exemplary life he lived and is thus respected by the entire cross-section of Bharatiyas. He raised a strong army and navy, constructed and repaired forts, used guerrilla warfare tactics, developed a strong intelligence network and functioned like a seasoned Statesman and General. He introduced systems in revenue collection and warned the officials against harassment of subjects. In his private life, his moral virtues were exceptionally high. His thoughts and deeds were inspired by the teachings of his mother Jijabai, and great Saints like Dnyaneshwar & Tukaram and the valiancy and ideals of the Lord Ram and Lord Krishna. He was blessed and guided by his Guru, Samarth Ramdas Swami. He was also an ardent devotee of Goddess Bhavani.

He always showed respect, defended and protected Holy men and places of worship of all religions. He allowed his subjects freedom of religion and opposed forced conversions. Shivaji Maharaj is well known for his benevolent attitude towards his subjects. He believed that there was a close bond between the state and the citizens. He encouraged all socio-economic groups to participate in the ongoing political/military struggle. The Kingdom established by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj known as 'Hindavi Swarajya' (Sovereign Hindu state) spread beyond Attock in Northwest Bharat (now in Pakistan) and beyond Cuttack in East Bharat in due course, to become the strongest power in Bharat.

The history of Bharat is incomplete without the history of the Marathas and Shivaji Maharaj is the nucleus of Maratha history. Shivaji Maharaj has been a source of inspiration and pride to the past generations and will continue to inspire generat-ions in the future too. We pay our obeisance to this great Hindu King on his birth anniversary, which falls on 19th February.
