I started this blog 2 years back and I’m writing my 100th blog now. I was confused of what to blog about in this 100th one. Should it be a movie review? a book review? the stupid FCC rules? rains in Chennai? mandaya udachu yosichathuku apuram, finally I decided to blog about this blog.
So I disguised myself as a reporter and thought of an interview with Praku about this blog ;-). Being a typical vetti bandha guy, he refused for an interview. Somehow I got him for you and here is the transcript of the interview:
Me : Hi Praku. This is your 100th blog. How do you feel?
He : Well. Honestly nothing great about it. Its just an other number
(engaluku theriyathakum? ivanaya ellam interview pannanumnu thala eluthu)
Me : So tell me Praku. Why did you start this blog?
He : It was two years back and don’t remember. I think I wanted some place to put down my thoughts; kill my free time and also do something creative.
Me : Creative? All I could see was some reviews about movies, books, your trip and other experiences and publish few photos. Whats the creative part in it?
He : hmmm. True. I actually had an idea of Sangaarji jokes.
Me : You mean Sardarji jokes?
He : No. Its Sangaarji jokes. Pronounced as San-gaar-ji. Generally sadarji jokes are about stupid people. Sangaarji jokes about stupid people with a computer background.
Me : OK. But I’ve not seen any of Sangaarji joke in your blog !
He : (Thinks for a while and then) I thought I need some practice in writing blogs before I write sangaarji jokes. So I decided I’ll write at least 100 blogs before I write some sangaarji joke.

Me : Mr. Praku, How do you spread out words about your blog?
He : Actually, if you see, I don’t spread out word. Only a very few people know the existance of this blog. Even few of my roommates don’t know about it. I don’t want everyone to read it. I thought sometimes it might cause trouble.
Me : Have you ever encountered any trouble so far?
He : Not yet.
Me : Then may be you can open it up to everyone.
He : hmmm. Let me think about it. I’ll go thru all my blogs and remove objectionable contents and if its ok, I’ll open it to all.
(thappu panniteno? naan kelvi kekarana illa ivanuku idea kudukarana?)
Me : Which one of your blog, you consider as best?
He : Actually the one ‘I see people’ is the one that many people said is the best. Which actually motivated me to write blogs in the subject ‘I shoot people’, ‘I read people’, etc. Which were eventually considered as crap.
Me : Something like movie sequels, the first one is a big hit and movies in same theme might fail 🙂
He : True.
Me : Why there are so many gaps in your blogs? You don’t seem to write regularly.
He : Thats because either I don’t get time. When I get time, sometimes I don’t get system to type. If I get both, I won’t feel like blogging and will just browse and go. Its just goes like that.
(ikkum. thoongu moonji. lazyness innu ore varthayila unmayana bathile sollen)
Me : Talking about your other blogs, you parallely started a techie blog along with this. What happened to it?
He : All thru the day I deal with techie stuff. So I thought at least in blogs, let me not technical.
(marupadiyum vetti bantha. techieya elutha thuppu illa innu sollu)
Me : And what about the one you started in the middle?
He : You mean the Tamil Kavithaigal? I think I’ll continue that.
Me : Isn’t it odd that without any objective you pickup random ones and start writing about it?
He : hmmmm. Thats also true. Let me see. I think you have a point. Summa pura naanooru, kurnthogai, thirukual appdinnu randoma eluthama, athula ethavathu onna eduthu kittu athula irukara enaku pudicha paattellam eluthalam illa? I’ll try that also
(ayyayo. ivan naan kekara kelvila irunthe nalla idea ellam suttukarane! ithuku mela kelvi kekarathu thappunnu nenaikaren)
Me : Ok Praku. Thank you Praku. Its good to talk with you. I wish you start more blogs; update all of them more frequently and entertain us.
(oops! ippo naane avanuku directa idea kudutano? Shit!)
He : Thanks. I don’t think I’ll be creating any new blogs. But I’ll surely update it more frequently.
(athana parthan. directa oru idea kudutu atha nee eduthukitta chennaila mala vanthudume. sorry, veyyil vanthudume!)
Me : Bye
He : Bye
