Arasiyalla Idhellam Sagajamappa

Robbie's post triggered me to share a mail.

Take this post with a lot of salt, and see this as a humour post!
Some NAPs [Namba Aathu Pullayandan]are there, who want to fall in love(!). But their values doesnt allow them to date any x or y. They are so conscious that, they would want to know the gothram of a girl, before going and initiating a conversation with a new NAK[Namba Aathu Kuzhandai], who has joined his company or project or his class.

By the time, they finish the gothram,sub sect research, get to know her nakshatram, go to and find the star match, the NAK would already have been picked up by the Remos around leaving our Ambis kicking the sand and to wait for the next NAK to appear in their RADAR.

The following is a mail chain among such poor despo NAPs. Read it from the bottom and have a hearty laugh!!

Hey TJ!:
A very subtle point made here,good that you brought this up. This was exactly the point of my post.
Nice post dude!
Exactly NAP's do get lost when it comes to choosing.:) Glad that you read through and understood what I was trying to say there.

Very Hilarious TJ. I am feeling really old when I see these things for once I was also a part of NAP gang !

At Mon Aug 08, 01:24:00 PM CDT, Blogger Ganesh said...

ambi indha mari nee post pannakka
avallam kochukka pora apparam
you will be branded as MCP.

I repeat my comment made in Robbie's post If there are real ambis out there I am sure there will be also some real nice ammalloos also.
lets pray these nice people meet each other :) sometimes fate brings wrong combination leading to Chaos.

And I have seen the so called hip tams(b&gs) making fun of such nice ambis.

Do not wait for too long. There are girls who will like you as you are.
Find them, instead of becoming self-destructive :))))

If you keep on watching NAKs getting picked up, no one will be left in the future :)

After so many rejetted things about NAPs. let me tell u one trade secret. Girls love to change guys. They love the guys to be porikkis before they meet them (and thts why the affliction towards remos n likes), and then I donno why it gives the NAKs so much happiness that they were able to "change" NAPs to Remos! Nowadays the NAKs get frustrated abt ur starting trouble and they come n talk to u first...So if u r a NAP, no problem, when a NAK comes to u, juz make sure u become as she wants u to be..and then see the change..;) Adha uttutu vedamtham pesina...Koil la job is waiting for u....

The search has just begun !!!

I have had my share of silly high school romance but nothing of this sort. I come to understand that being traditional is looked upon as being old-fashioned ( at least that's what most NAK'S think according to your post).
I have a nice habit, I just don't give a damn whether I'm liked. I am not living under the impression that I will find love and all its accompaniments. I really want to keep off this area of the human psyche as it is fertile playing field for Maya\Prakriti. I even contemplated sannyaasam several times but finally decided to be with my parents in order to discharge my duites (of course as an offering unto Krishna) and pay offall my debts before the ties that bind me can be rent asunder with the sword of true knowledge. since Vaishnavism does not place much emphasis on the sAnnyaasaashrama (I like the Vaishnava way of life,)there is no way I'll become a sannyaasin in decades.
sorry for a weird comment in an otherwise extremely enjoyable post.
I just can't stop smiling at the post minutes after reading it.

The age old wisdom will work - relationships fail because - the man gets into it thinking that the girl will not change (and she changes drastically) and the girls get into a relationhsip thinking they can change the man (and he never changes).

Also kind of find it strange that in today's world we still discuss NAP and NAK - i thought all that was over !!!!!!!!

Too much of tamil da!

Enakku onnume puriliye! :-( (I mean to say I didn't understand a thing)

Except that from the context, there were lot of conlusions that I could make. Don't know how many of them are true though!

Yes, NAPs are lost while choosing, they are torn between values and wishes.

Andha kaalathla.. apadenu pesra madhiri irukku. Ture NAPs are very slow, school college la panna vendiadha, velaikku vandhu pann try panranga.

ha ha, true, idha pathi aedhum sonna, MCP brand will be stuck.. As u said, waiting with confidence for the ammalooo

At Wed Aug 10, 04:52:00 AM CDT, Blogger TJ said...

It took time to learn what u said, and have met a rare NAK who wants a NAP. ;)

As i said in an earlier comment, poor NAPs, are caught between values and wishes.

hmm.. that tip is very true. Picking up bad guys and changing them, like pudhiya padhai.. They dream of this nice script and more than half of them land up hurting themselves in that process

At Wed Aug 10, 04:58:00 AM CDT, Anonymous Anonymous said...


so you have run into a NAK WHO WANTS A NAP. congratulations.sorry if my comment put you off.


At Wed Aug 10, 05:00:00 AM CDT, Blogger TJ said...

'Looking traiditional is being looked as old fashioned' very painfully true.

The age old wisdom stuff was a good one! Similar to what Random Access has said.

sorry abt that machchi, lemme post some translations from now on!

Yappa arjuna, perukku aerthar pola romba ispeeeda iriukkiyee.. vaazhthukkal.. ;)

hey ..wht u told is true.. indha mathiri NAPs naan parthurukken but ennoda mara mandaikku idhula ivlo "vishayam" irukkumnu therillai.. :(

( is there a way i can fwd this link to that a NAP?? without telling who fwded it??? )..

y cant these NAPs become more bold and choose their own life?? if they like some one is all these "external" factors of kulam and gothram going to make a big diff?? am lil bulb in understn such complex fundas of NAP...

Hi, I could not understand much tamil but I know of a NAP who had an affair which started just the same way and then broke up with some lame reasons. No wonder the NAK's are more attracted to the non-NAK's who would stand up to them till the end and not become a Runaway GRoom ;)

At Sun Aug 14, 01:34:00 PM CDT, Blogger TJ said...

True Anon,
Most NAPs are always apprehensive of choosing their partners, fearing the breakage of family values. :(

En peyar eppadi inge adipattathunnu paartha, ellam ore joke-aa irukkuthu!

Just was wondering How my name is playing a role here in these blogs, oh, found all the nak & nap just playing around here...hahahah

Best luck pals, I am really nowhere near you - in age and play, but part of a gang...once that was...decades ago!
