An elegy to my lost iPod Touch


Day : 2nd May, 2009

Time : about 15:00 hrs

Place : 401K Vijayanagara to Vidyaranyapura bus

Situation : A crowded bus and I’m going to a relative’s place.

Outcome : A good 30 minutes into the journey, I come to know that my iPod has been stolen!

The Present:

One song that has been impressing me (not a surprise, eh?) lately is Behne De from Raavan. The tamil version “Usurey Poguthey”, in spite of being released late; surely captures the audience too. So, yesterday, 9th May, a good one week since I lost my iPod; en route to Bangalore from Chennai, I was thinking about this song when a fellow near me fished out his iPod from his bag and started swishing the screen to browse across the collections he had. A strange feeling of nostalgia crept unto me! Even though I took my iPod-getting-stolen-incident pretty maturely and coped up with it, the occasional glimpse of one over the past week brought a wry smile to my lips. A conglomeration of Usurey Poguthey and thoughts about my iPod resulted in an elegy which i dedicate to my lost iPod. 😦 RIP!

Here are the lyrics…

intha boomiyila eppa vanthu nee porantha
thala steve-in moolayila nee vethancha
ada ipod nano sirusu thaan
latest ipad kooda perusu thaan

ada ipod nano sirusu thaan
latest ipad kooda perusu thaan
oru ipodtouch bayangara use-da
maththa mp3 player-laam thoosuda

usurey poguthey usure poguthey
sutta ipod-ah naan nenaikkayila.. oh..
payapulla thavikkuren pocket-la theduren
kuduthudu da thiruttu payale
istore forum-la nee irunthum
buththi unna vaanga nenaikkudhada
purse-la paisa illanuthum
manam nondhu noodles aaguthada

pocket-um kannum thooram thooram
ipod-a naan paakala
purse thaanya mukkiyam endru
vera ethayum nokkala
eduthaan eduthaan
ada nekka thaan eduthaan
koduthen koduthen
ada kotta vittu naan koduthen
intha ipod kirukku theeruma
ada ipod-oda vilayum kuraiyuma
en manasula baaraththa erakkidumma..
suthi-ulla payalellam.. ada kai kotti sirikkuraan..
sooniyam vechavanukkellam.. saami kanna kuththa poguraan..

usurey poguthey usure poguthey
sutta ipod-ah naan nenaikkayila.. oh..

etta irukkum ipod paaththu nottam vittaan naadhari

The past week without the iPod wasn’t difficult as the iPod as a music player was replaced by my laptop/desktop. However the mobile browsing part cannot be compromised and I have learned to live with it! Appadi mobile-la mail/buzz paaththu naan onnum kazhattaporathilla.. 🙂

OK.. Push in your comments.. The next post will be dedicated to Cricket, an article that has been sitting in my Drafts folder for quite a long time now!
