My brain has been working in a rather peculiar manner(like always).I find some minute resemblance between the above two superstars.I haven't expressed this to anyone except curses who obviously did not agree with me.Now I want to know if there is any similarity between the two(except for the fact that they are no.1 in their respective fields)or if it is my brain which is functioning improperly.The answer to the latter question is already known so skip it and answer the first one only.
"Sivaji" funda--Rajinikanth's character is called Sivaji in his next movie.But do u know that Sivaji Ganesan played a character called Rajinikanth?In the movie "Gouravam" SG plays the role of an advocate by the name "Justice Rajinikanth".
The TamilNadu government is all set for a demolition drive to remove encroachments on the bed and banks of the Coovum and Adyar rivers.An engg. college near Koyambedu had to bear the brunt of the demolition as it was built right on the bed of coovum.But this was carried out by the Tiruvallur district administration as the place falls under Tiruvallur district.If the Chennai Corporation were to execute the same demolition,the two rivers would be not only clean but will also be a pleasant sight to watch.Some of the structures that are expected to go are Harrisons Hotel in chetpet,IGate in guindy and those high-rise apartments coming up near chettinad school.Will have to wait and watch the fun.

Opine on the "resemblance" in the comment box.
Once again karnataka has proved that it is a cut above the rest.While maharashtra,TN and WB chose to rename only their capitals,karnataka is set to rename most of its cities as this article from today's The Hindu shows:
They will be Belagavi, Mangalooru, Mysuru

Special Correspondent

Gulbarga will be Kalburgi, Hubli to be renamed Hubballi

  • Name changing criticised by some intellectuals who have called it an exercise in parochialism
  • Dharam Singh defends move to change names of cities
  • Proposal to change Bangalore's name came at a meeting with litterateurs and others

  • BANGALORE: Changes in the names of some more cities is in the offing. After deciding to rename the State capital Bangalore as Bengalooru, the Government has decided to change the names of Mysore, Mangalore, Gulbarga, Hubli and Belgaum.

    Those cities will shed their anglicised names and assume Kannada names.

    Announcing this at Gulbarga on Sunday, Chief Minister N. Dharam Singh said that Mysore will become Mysuru, Mangalore-Mangalooru, Hubli- Hubballi, Gulbarga-Kalburgi, and Belgaum-Belagavi.

    As in the case of Bangalore, the new names will come into vogue from November 1, 2006, which marks the 50th year of the reorganisation of the State.

    The Chief Minister said that the State Cabinet will consider the changes and forward them to the Centre for approval.

    Mr. Dharam Singh defended the decision to change the name of Bangalore and noted that the proposal came at a meeting with litterateurs and others held in connection with the celebration of "Suvarna Karnataka."

    The decision with regard to Bangalore has met with approval from intellectuals and others, he noted.

    The name changing exercise has, however, met with opposition from some of the intellectuals (other than those connected with Kannada literature) and professionals who regard it as encouragement of parochialism.

    Karnataka should not have followed in the footsteps of States where regionalism holds the key to political fortunes, is the view.

    The radio services of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) a few days ago interviewed people across the country on the decision with Bangalore's name.

    However, it was found that by and large the change was welcomed and there were not many to accept the misgivings of the interviewer.
