Yeah, this is one question that most of us would like to ask everyday… at least I would like to ask many many people in my life… Coz we get to have a tendency to hurt our fellow people, while striving to lead a mere mechanical kind of life in this most competitive world… and most of the times the people who gets hurt are none other than our beloved ones… In this life long endeavor, we just forget that fact that we are humans after all… the kind of species, who have been blessed with a sense to feel & respect the emotions of each other…
But in reality, many valueless feelings like ego, hatred, religious & caste divides, financial difference takes priority in our lives all along this journey and in turn make us so wooden, numb & soulless… some other times, the circumstances and the environment around make us so… and as a consequence of all these, we just tend to lose our individuality or in other words the core idea of a human… also at times, we get to lose forever, some of our very precious relations in our life… the time we realize the value of the lost over those worthless stuffs, enters into our heart, the feeling of guilty… and at that time this question appears in our heart… Mannippaaya?!?!? To say in English… Will you forgive me?!?!
Hmmm… I should say one more thing before completing this post… It’s the one that provoked me to pen this post… Guess that many of you would have found it from the title… it’s none other than the song ‘Mannipaaya’ from Gowtham Menon’s ‘Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaaya’, composed by our double Oscar winner A.R.Rahman… First time when I listened this number, it just got added into my favorites… the genre of this number is so poignant and Shreya Goshal made it much more moving by her expressive rendition of an yet another meaningful lyrics penned by Thamarai… The lyrics of the song will be more momentous, if we listen to the song after watching the movie…
Here is the link for you to enjoy the song…. And my favorite lines in this song are…
kaatrile aadum kakidham naan
neethaan ennai kaditham aakkinaai
anbil thodangi anbil mudikkiren,
It’s you who made me into a letter
to start and end with love.
Anaivarum urangidum iravenum neram
enakkadhu thalayanai nanaithidum neram,
Night is the time when everyone sleeps
But it is the time I wet the pillows with tears.
I’m sure that I’ll spare yet another post for the movie ‘Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaaya’ , but only after watching it for the second time in Sathyam Cinemas… Until then bye!!!
