With Increasing number of causalities to this fever , its better to know a bit about it take some precautions :

About Dengue

Dengue is transmitted by the bite of an Aedes mosquito infected with any one of the four dengue viruses. It occurs in tropical and sub-tropical areas of the world. Symptoms appear 3—14 days after the infective bite. Dengue fever is a febrile illness that affects infants, young children and adults.

Symptoms range from a mild fever, to incapacitating high fever, with severe headache, pain behind the eyes, muscle and joint pain, and rash. There are no specific antiviral medicines for dengue. It is important to maintain hydration. Use of acetylsalicylic acid (e.g. aspirin) and non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (e.g. Ibuprofen) is not recommended.

Dengue haemorrhagic fever (fever, abdominal pain, vomiting, bleeding) is a potentially lethal complication, affecting mainly children. Early clinical diagnosis and careful clinical management by experienced physicians and nurses increase survival of patients.

This is a very valuable document by Govt of India :

Govt of India Information Article on Dengue

Mosquito-breeding usually goes down during winter, which leads to a drop in dengue cases !!
So its not a bad time for humans , but precaution is a little better !!

And for marketing people , this is raining of opportunity :P

Filmy Sounds

Sound in Indian Films

Sound in films is not a new thing .
But a proper understanding of this field is still a new thing .....

Films on early days .....

Seeing people walking and doing actions .... Not in real life ... But on a white screen ... Wow .....
But the WOW effect was not lasted for long ....

Something was missing , and it was "SOUND"....

Talkies .....

Now people are no more interested in just seeing things or Musicians playing in the side to create mood.
They lost the love in once WOWed upon thing -- the Silent movies ...

The Silence was broken once and for all ...

We need the screen to speak ...
We need to hear new sounds ...
We need to hear the people in the screen ....

Music and Sound .... Makes the picture complete .....

But why Sound is not given importance ?
Why Sound is given the least importance ?

Sound Credits are scrolling some where invisible,
where as every one knows Direction , Editing , Cinematography, Music Direction , Acting ....

Sound as a department itself dint exist among Indian Audience until recently a man from a small village in Kerala , pulled India's name to the Oscars by winning the Best Sound Mixing in 2010 ....

Its non other than Resul Pookutty

Since then many people came to know that there is something called Sound Department which works behind the Screens which is the main reason for all the sounds we hear in Television and Movie Theaters ....

I myself was interested in working in Films from my School days .
I used to think that Music Director is the one who make all the sound recording , and also music in films .

We are happy that one man got the opportunity to change this illiteracy among many and now many including me are dreaming to learn the technique of Sound Recording ....

FTII , the best institute in India for film studies have reported a huge increase in applications for Sound Engineering since 2010 .

I gave my first try in FTII on 2010 , when i was not able to get through .

Since then my way of watching movies have changed .
I just dont watch a movie , I hear a movie ....

I never saw a critic reviewing on a movie technically
In fact not much people would love to read such reviews .

But i felt we should reciew a movie with respect to every aspect
Its a project which is struggld by manyyy people .

So we cant just judge or review a movie on the Directorial or Acting part.

I have started writing this blog on a intention to review movies with respect to Sounds .

Hope to start coming up with many reviews soon ...

Yekshi (Devil)

I was studying in St'Joseph HSS, Trivandrum .
Once every month , during the school assembly, our school principal used to release story books created (hand made by students with drawing and their own stories) !!
It was fun during those days to compete among each to make the best book with best stories .

It was once during such an attempt , I wrote a malayalam book named YEKSHI - the evil !!
It got a very good response among the friends , that they asked me to give it to them for few days to read !! Thing was I gathered some patches from here and there and wrote the book !!

But the very impact thing was the front cover !!
I drew a girl closeup face picture which got immense response !!
The story was about a girl who died , but started living in the society ...
It was kind of like a Zombie story :)
But those were the time I have never seen a zombie story or have heard of it !!

Thats why it got huge response !
But it had a very strange effect over me !!

From the day I finished the book , I started having sleepless nights .
It would be too much if i say that i never slept for almost a month time , but it was true .
No sleep at all .... just cant sleep. once i close my eyes , i started seeing strange irrelevant things

I was not able to understand why i was not able sleep at all .
i told my mom and she asked me to go and pray well
i prayed well the next day and still i was not able to stop seeing strange thing once i close my eyes !!

I kept on thinking why this is happening and one fine day i thought it might be this book which i wrote is the reason for the strange negative wave around me !!

But it was one of the best books made by any children of that class - and i loved it like anything .
But as days went on , this thought creeped in that one sunday afternoon , i took the hard decision to burn that book ..

I felt very bad and asked my mom if i can burn it .
she said , if you feel that the boo is the reason for your sleeplessness , then you can burn it .
It gave me some sort of calm feel that if i burn it , i might get sleep !!

I took the book , burnt it and waited till its completely burnt !!

It was shocking !!
I slept that day ...
after so  many days i slept !!
and it was not any more a trouble for me to sleep !!

Strange but true ...

Believe it or Not !!!

43rd IFFI held at Goa was inagurated today

Woman - God Himself dint knew the meaning

Wah .... Never ever one can define a woman !!

Her heart is soo complicated that it can teach you anything !!

She is mom , sister , best friend , teacher , girl friend , soul mate ,

and wah ...

still dont know what a woman is ...

she is different and Godly ....

She loves you and kiss your heart .

What a heart ever wanted is never known in her absence ...

A heart's wave is started by her and she walks with it till you say no to her .

She makes you think what you thought is what you should not think !!

She makes you dream and comes in your dream to make sure you dream ...

She wakes you up with a deep lift which lifts your soul to lift the entire world !!

She is the God and Devil in you ...

She is the love and hate in you ...

She is the veins which decides where your blood should flow

She knows what you know to teach you what you never knew

She asks you to walk alone while hiding behind praying you to walk safe

She knows to cry like God and she knows to smile like a devil

She is the God and Devil in you ,

and yet you search for her , for her unknown meaning .....

Life is full-filled when and only when i know the true meaning of woman ....

For She is the only meaning , God himself never kew , for which he created the world

Life is the best Film :)

One's Own Life is the most beautiful film One can see ….
How many characters ....
How many emotions ….
How many breaks ....
It makes you crave for care, love , and 
It makes you raise your emotions for seeing your loved ones ,
It makes you cry for seeing your loved ones leaving you ,
It teaches you to sit calm to wait for breaks which might come or never comes ,
And it teaches you to accept unwanted breaks to make you bold to face breaks yet to come ,

In the end , It just matters how you watched your film , cause you are the film .....
