Brainy Walk

Any one using a Windows computer will know some basic features of the system, like My Documents, My Pictures, My Music, and many more...

I would like to share one of the nice feature of this powerful device, comparing it with our real life example. It is the "Recent Documents" which helps us to keep a track of all the recent activities we did, like stored a file, viewed a file, played a song, some movie etc...

Reaching office this morning, I was wondering how God carefully designed our brain, considering the smallest details which help us to remember things, keep track of them, and triggers it to remind us of certain events, that happened in past.

I was walking to office from my Home in Chennai to my Office. It is a 15 minute walk. But in these 15 minutes, my brain observed things which I was discussing the previous day with my roommate.

The Technical discussion also usually happened in Tamil, they cracked jokes in Tamil, and also laughed in Tamil. :P

When all this was happening, I felt an urge to learn Tamil.
I started learning with some basic stuff like counting numbers,

1:Oru,
2:Randd,
3:moonre,
4:naal,
5:aanj,

10:pattu,

"Unga peru enna?"(What is your name?), "Evalavu?"(How Much?)
and my favourite "Teri Yaad Tamil" which means "I don't know Tamil"…
