I forgot

Nehavish is the winner of the Avataram sponsored, in memory of Brahmeboodha Suryanarayana Iyer Thatha short-story contest.

Her story is most funny and is a tribute to the finest creation - Tamizh Maamis.

Krishashok’s was nice too. Except that, he missed Madras in his story. And worse, mentioned Karnataka!

Avataram, I should get a prize too. For having hosted this contest.

Are you personally handing over the gifts?
Why not Avataram's story itself? Was good no?

I love Tamizh Maamis, why can't the young women learn from them?

neha vish said...

I am going to make murukku and distribute now. Danks ATP!

The book sounds interesting in a random way. Just like Avataram! :)

Clark Gable said...

That was easy, wasn't it! The men will never have a chance, that much one is able to gather.

The Kid said...

cha missed the contest by just a week! writing such stories is like eating "alwa" for me...

I hope you host more such contests.

Me a first timer to your blog and I find it very funny :)

Clark Gable: Are you suggesting I am biased? Po da.

Nehavish: You are welcome. But please make sure you get the book from Mr A. Thanks.

Shouldn't the good Mr A decide on the winner?

Zero said...

Hmmm, Avataram's was superb and simply the funniest.
Just for that sublime stroke of more Mokshagundam Visvesvarayyas jumping out of the turban, complete with bikes, with each pull in his story!

Mr Murukku said...

BTW, who is this Sir Mokshagundam Visvesvarayya?
And how is he related to Avataram's thatha?

Toxi said...

You closed the contest too quickly ma!

Asal Tamil Penn said...

Zero: Avataram’s story was brilliant only. But it ended with a heart-break. Nehavish’s story ended with world domination, by Tamizh Maamis no less. I demand happy endings. At least in fiction.

Sriram said...

Did Avataram's thatha appear in his dream and inform him the winner? If not the results are rigged. Its a maamispiracy.

Psychedelic if you ask me. Reminded me of that Japanese maanga toon that I saw the other day.

Romba Tanks Asal Tamizh Penn. Any certificates, plastic tiffen boxes, pencil boxes etc as prizes?

Thalaivaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

I second the last anon's proposal...

Thalaivaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

Anu said...

ATP, Nilakantan Rajaraman losing in the race is not tragic. In fact, a heart-broken Nilakantan Rajaraman is hilarious. As much as I want the murukku, I think Avataram's story is better. Pliss reconsider.

Defective Piece said...

Why is everyone anti Vish? And why does everyone get all excited when they see the mention of Nilakantan?

Guess am a day or two late, but since I wrote it anyways, might as well present it here.


My first trip to Madras(Okay Chennai you authoritative bastards!) started with a bang. Literally. As I got off the plane, this gust of wind slapped me across the face and flew past me, making my face moist and sticky and in most probability dark, so that I would blend in. Sure, I had been to Mumbai(you know a coastal region), but never Chennai, this welcome was quite unexpected.
As I wandered through the streets I saw that there were no footpaths. So where do the pedestrians walk then? I pondered. Aha! I should have guessed. No wonder all the roads seem so narrow! Jeez! It would have put Sir Mokshagundam Visvesvarayya to shame. It'd possibly force him to take part in the World Naked Bike Race (WNBR) and who knows if the fury was lasting, then he'd probably clinch the title and win it!
Mean while I continued to roam the streets of Madras. Every wall had huge posters of Karunanidhi smiling away to glory. I guess that was something amusing to look at while attending nature's call. The huge dark patches under the posters bore testimony to that.
But at the back of my head there was Visvesvariya, butt naked, riding a moped(He bribed the authorities with his life savings to allow mopeds in the race) with nothing but his turban covering his head. I guess he had been to a chinese restaurant the day before, whe he was probably served a fortune cookie and I am guessing it had 'Tomorrow is your lucky day' etched on it. This must've surely put a smile on his face while he was swooshing on the moped at 30. As it turned out, the winds from the south decided to interfere and swooped away all the constestants, some of whom were almost near the finish line,leaving behind our turban clad civil enzineer, as the lone contestant. I have been dreaming for quite some time now yet he hasn't reached the finish line.

Tamizh Penn,

I hope you realize, that I am always on your side.

Koyi pareshaan karein aapko to batayiega zaroor.

Love,

Sunil Babu

Asal Tamil Penn said...

Anu: Like that aa? I shall keep that in mind for the next time.

Krish Ashok: Of course. If I ever get my first salary cheque, I shall make sure to pick up a plastic tiffin box from Pondy Bazaar! :)

And enough said. Nehavish's story is the best.

Mouse 1811 said...

@Anu: Shame on you. Why bias the poor girl against Nilu?

@ATP: Don't get biased my dear girl. You are doing well so far.

Vendakkai said...

Forget the Maanga and Murungakka. Love only Vendakkai.

Kotavarakai said...

Why should only the other vegetables get to speak?

Avakkai said...

Pickles are a nicer alternative to vegetables.

Anonymous said...

Heartbroken Nilakantan Rajaraman? Is that possible even.
Stop giving credit where none is deserved. He is an idiot.

Anusha said...

Didn't somebody once say, better dead than broken-hearted! :)
I liked the story. Very much.

Paavakai said...

Just.

Please post dear ponnu. Or have you become one of them as you had suggested sometime back?

Vengayam said...

Where?

avataram said...

Thatha is bored. He says the contest was nice, but he always liked Tamizh penn more than any of the participants. He will haunt your blog till you post again.

Vendakkai said...

Now that you have our attention, please post.

Nilu Hater said...

I think, ATP loves Nilu. Such a waste.

Rajasthan Boy said...

I think you should know, I don't like this Nilu fellow at all.
Just in case.
Though I know, you have very fine taste.

Anonymous said...

Nilu seems to have quit. Is there a corelation?

I love Nilu. Please get rid of these jealous folks.
