Thumbaka dhaaney Ambi Lambaano!!

Today the first class compartment in train was unusually crowded and there was only one seat which was vacant.I occupied that one,enjoying the song "KalyaaNa then nilaa"(Some puNNiyavaan was listening to Suriyan FM on loudspeaker).Me flipping thru "If Tommorrow comes" for the Nth time.Many don't appreciate,but I enjoy each n every plot whenever I read.I opened the book n skimmed,trying to remember the page no/scene I last read,coz my bookmark was missing.Suddenly a voice near me said "HI".I almost jumped from my seat and turned to check out who it was...huh!Chamathu kodam "Ambi"(as we call him)

Well,God knows vot his real name is,but he reminds me of "Anniyan" Ambi.Ofcourse,u can make out 6 vidhyasam between celluloid and the real one.

Anniyan Ambi | Train Ambi
Kondai | No Kondai
Sreechoornam | Sandhanam+Kungumam
Vakeel | Engineer
Iyengar | Iyer
Seen in Luna | Seen in train
Movie-la avan rules pesi kazhutha aruppaan | Ivan pesiye kazhutha aruppaan

I don't even know who he is,apart from those few times when I'd seen him while travelling.But I have a pre-conceived notion that he is irritating n vexatious.(Though I don't have the bad habit of judging people by looks,this fella was an exception)

Me:Hi
(I remembered the scene!It was Big Bertha helping Tracy to escape from the penitentiary.I tried to concenterate on the book)
Ambi:Train-la padikkareLey kaNNu valikkaadhu?
Me:(Romba akkaRai dhan)Illa,adhukku dhan reading glasses pottundu irukken
Ambi:Naan school/college times-leye train-la padikka maaten.hee hee
Me:(Sandhosham) :) (I bend down to read)
Ambi:Neenga Sukanyavoda frienda?
Me:(Quizzically) Aamam
Ambi:UngaLa ava marriagela paathen.
Me:(Deiii adhu wedding daa) o i c
Ambi:Neega Lakshmi nagar road meleye dhaney irukkeL
Me:Aamaam
Ambi:Engaam piLLayaar kovilukku edhirka irukku.Neenga Scooty-la porachey paathrukken
Me:oh!(I try to get back to Whitney's masterplan)
Ambi:Inniku enna thaniya vandhrukkeL
Me:(Paathaa theriyala?)Aamaam
Ambi:Unga kooda oruthar varuvarey?Unga friend-a?
Me:(Romba avasiyam)Illa avan ennoda brother..cousin.
Ambi:Appdiya?Avar kooda avvLava pesinadhilla.Aanaa train-la adikkadi paathu Hello sollipom
Me:(Andha idiotnaala dhaan unkooda ivvLo neram pesa vendi irukku)Hmmm
Ambi:Avar varaliya?Avar keLamba late aayidutho?
Me:(I shoot a longing glance on the open page)Illa
Ambi:Pinna?
Me:(Vidaa kandaa!kodaa kandaa!)Avan New Jersey-la irukkaan.
Ambi:oh!on site offer-a?Very Good!Very Good!Unga company-layum irukka?
Me:Mmmm
Ambi:Neenga eppo poReL?
Me:(Andha pakkam train pidichu tirisulathula erangi poga vendiyadhu dhaan)Offer vandhaa poven.
Ambi:Ennoda visa kooda process aayindu irukku
Me:(Naan kettena?)All the Best!

I generally get up from my seat only after the train pops into Mambalam Station.Today,I decided to scoot once the train entered into Saidapet.

Me:Sari naan kelambaren.
Ambi:Ok!C u.Bye!

Once out of the train,I heaved a sigh of relief.Yammmaaaa!!I observed that inspite of minimal conversation from my side,he kept on chatting endlessly.I've heard about old maamaas n maamis going on and on like this.But for the first time in my life I'd met a youngster(that too a guy) who could prattle non-stop :)) In retrospect,I feel I could have been politer in this harmless conversation :(

    @ravi - This has nothing to do with "uLLondRu vaithu puRamondru pesudhal".I can say it on face if d opponent deserves it-a brutal rejection.But in this case,I was prejudiced n hence the irritation.He can't be blamed for that rite?Ennoda irritationku oru vadikaal is this post...thatz it!!

    Nokia 6230 was my old phone. It is amazing!!!!!!!!!
    But if you want to use it mainly for browsing then I suggest you go for Nokia 6260. The mobile OS is better and browsing is good.

    And have a look at nokia 7610 also.(It comes along with a datacable and is pretty neat)

     
  • At 4:00 AM, Blogger vee-jay said…

    Aiyoo!!!! suicide periya varththai!!!! I strongly feel human life is worth a lot more than to be sacrificed for such trivial things.

    adhukku badhila i would rather suggest sth else. Neengalum nandini madhiri uLLazhaga pathu namma Ambi-kku OK sollidungo :D

     
  • At 4:07 AM, Blogger Yours Truly said…

    @ferrari - Actually am still in a dilemma if it is 6230i/7610.When I sent that msg,it was 6230i,now it is 7610 :)

    *PAT*MYSELF*PAT* know 4 vot? I guessed u will swerve from the topic if I tell u about my decision on the mobile model n I succeeded:)) Yippeeee!!!

    Oops
    I fell into the trap!!!

    Ok. I will dedicate one song to YT and Ambi

    P.S. I suggest you go for 7610. I have used both. You will really relish the mobile experience. Trust me!
