It is 1992-93 we believe, while I was studying 12th standard. In English first paper we got some poems of well known poets of English literature like William Wordsworth, William Blake, Henry O Henry etc,

I could still remember some of the poems in the 11th & 12th Standard syllabus because I would enjoyed the poems while learning them. On those days we never got interested English literature and all off course we use to just memorize the poems, essays and question answers and then just throw them on exam papers only. Yeah we always fought with this second language English, we will get the just pass marks only.

But after a long time, I could realize them as enjoyable ones to read.In those enjoyable poems I can specifically say one, which is "Poison Tree" by William Blake.

He says if we would have got some anger or frustrations with some one of our friends that has to be expressed and conveyed immediately on to the face. And that should be hidden in the mind and act with a smile with the same person. If we do not express openly, keep the same in mind, and shows a smile as usual, it will leads to a poison tree seeded in our mind, will grows gradually day by day and one day it would become a big poison tree.

If we react at the time, the causes would be very worst on both sides, the hearts would be wounded like anything, and severity becomes very high.

This is the one could be comparable with software testing too, a small bug in the software at the development stage could be agreed and accepted will leads to find a way to fix. If we hide or ignore the same it will grow like a poison tree, then it will cause a big impact at later stages.

Ok, Lets see read the poem and enjoy now. I don't have the prose for this.

I was angry with my friend:
I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
I was angry with my foe;
I told it not, my wrath did grow.

And I water'd it in fears,
Night & morning with my tears;
And I sunned it with my smiles
And with soft deceitful wiles.

And it grew both day and night,
Till it bore an apple bright;
And my foe beheld it shine,
And he knew that it was mine,

And into my garden stole
When the night had veil'd the pole:
In the morning glad I see
My foe outstretch'd beneath the tree


EVEN as America’s politicians harangue the bankers, the bankers are sniping back. On March 13th the chairman of Wells Fargo, America’s fourth-biggest bank, called the Treasury’s ongoing stress test for banks, with its glacial timetable, “asinine”. Amid the ranting, the rot from bad debts is creeping up banks’ capital structures, imperilling any recovery. Initially common shareholders, who bear the “first loss” on assets, were crushed, along with preferred shareholders, who get supposedly safer dividends. Now owners of bank debt, which bears losses once equity is wiped out, live in fear. Junior subordinated debt, which ranks next in the queue, trades at 15-45 cents on the dollar and senior subordinated debt at 65-70 cents. Even senior debt, holders of which rank second only to depositors in America and typically alongside them in Europe, is at 85-90 cents.

As I Said already in my previous post, Jeevs will always carry his camera bag, in which he will have his camera and his lenses, its quite difficult to him to carry all those thing with him whenever he travels. And he never bather about it really , since his passion towards the photography is that much.

I came to see an article on this while surfing on the web, the author of that article is Mr.Ian Lawrence, he is explaining how he is facing the difficulties in carrying over his luggage. That article has been published in the Travel Photographers Network and the author explains how and all we can make our travel lighter.

Photography is the very interesting world! While I bought a Digital Camera(Still I'm using the same only), I felt that I'm in a new world of joy and started to shoot lot of stills, everything and anything. :)

I learned some photography tips from my fellow blogger friends they have a groups for this called PIT(Photography in Tamil) and they use to conduct competitions every month and give the titles for each month.

Its very much true that I got interested in photography by these guys only. Mr. Jeeves, one of PIT admin members taught me a lot of things in photography and encourages too. Whenever he travels he will always get his bag for his SLR camera, I use too comment on that always! :)

And another one guy from the same group called CVR, also a good friend of mine, he also encourages me a lot. He is like an addict to photography, off course when he doesn't have his camera or battery or enough space in his memory card, he starts feeling shearing himself heh! :))

This is the one of my shoot!
