Give every man thy ear, but few thy voice; Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgement.

MettukkaL palavidham

New Year Celebrations have started in our office with a BANG!! We had Antakshari yesterday and I (ahem) had participated in that. The organisers' involvement in the event was just ammazing and it was evident from the 10 rounds that were conducted. Though it was all the regular Hindi/Tamil video clippings, instrumental and Paragraph guessing, etc the selection of songs was extremely good - a blend of 80s, 90s and the most recent ones.

There was one round which was very difficult and I found it pretty interesting though the rules were slightly confusing. We asked the organisers to repeat and re-repeat the rules. Have tried explaining it here. Hope you are able to understand it.

You pick a chit, the chit contains a Tamizh word. You can sing any one line from any song that contains this word. No, thatz not the end of it, you need to continue the cycle with related lines from different songs (any one line again not necessarily the beginning) which has a logical connection with the previous song.
You are given 3 mins to prepare once you pick the chit. And atleast 50% of what you sing should be from the middle and not the very 1st line.

Our pick was "saththam" and this is the exhaustive list prepared in 3 mins by 3 of us.

Enna saththam indha neram (Punnagai mannan)

Pon arumbugaL malargayile men melliya saththam varum (MottugaLey - Rojakootam)

Kodiyilae arumbudhaan kuLiril mazhaiyil nanayum pozhudhu (Aathaadi ammadi - Idhayathai thirudaadhey)

KuLireduththaal vaanaththiRkey kudai kodungaL neengaL - (Megam kottatum - EnakkuL oruvan)

Andha vaanam pakkam indha bhoomi sorgam - (Thirakkaadha kaatukkuLey - En swaasa kaatrey)

Sorgamey endraalum adhu nammoora pola varumaa (??)

Chennai senthamizh maRandhen unnaaley (MKSOM)

MaRakka manam koodudhillaye adikkira kaatha keyLu (Inji iduppazhagaa - Thevar Magan)

Vaadai kaatRukku vayasaachu vaazhum bhoomikku vayasaachu - (Hai Rabba - Jeans)

Rekkai muLaikkum vayasu dhaana Macareena ok dhaana? (Kushi)

Sari dhaan idhu kaadhalin aRiguri dhaan..Malligaye malligaye maalayidum mannavan yaar sollu (Ninaithen vandhaai)

Paerai chollavaa...adhu nyaayam aagumaa (??)

En keLvikkenna badhil...un paarvaikenna poruL (??)

Hey hey yeNNa aachchu unakku? (Kadhal virus)

Nalam nalam aRiya aaval un nalam nalam aRiya aaval (Kadhal Koattai)

Nee thandha otRai kadidham aayiram murai naan padippeney (Chaanakyaa Chaanakyaa - ??)

And well, that was the end of it...this was one of the high scoring rounds which helped us secure the 2nd place among 10 teams :))

P.S: This is my 26th post in 3 months!! Ah! that was not that bad :)

P.P.S: I dont know why people are biased with multiples of 25, so I decided to celebrate my 26th post with a Cadbury's Crackle :)
