King of PoPPPPP............

Pop icon Michael Jackson, who weaved musical magic with his songs and performances and was called the "ultimate entertainer", died of a heart attack Friday, leaving millions of fans in shock around the globe.

The 50-year-old moonwalking former child star, who became known the world over as the King of Pop, was not breathing when paramedics arrived at his rented home in Los Angeles.

He was taken to the University of California, Los Angeles Medical Centre, where he died at 1.07 p.m. Pacific time Thursday (1.37 a.m. IST Friday).

"I am so very sad and confused with every emotion possible. I am heartbroken for his children who I know were everything to him and for his family. This is such a massive loss on so many levels, words fail me,"

At the time of his death Jackson had been preparing for a 50-concert run in London that was meant to represent his comeback and secure his financial future.

The whole world expressed their grief over his death.
The moon dance unh!! that was so cool. And then the 90's came thats when Michael just went coucou!!"

Jackson was born into fame Aug 29, 1958, in Gary, Indiana, US. He never knew real life. He was five, the youngest member of his family band, the Jackson 5.

It was "Thriller" in 1982 that catapulted him into super stardom. The video for the song "Thriller" was a breakthrough success on MTV and heralded the age of the music video.

But it was in 1983 that Jackson introduced a dance move that will most probably be the defining visual burnished in fans' memories - the moonwalk. That singular dance move could well be the greatest move of all time.

Jackson held eight Guinness records, including most successful entertainer of all time.

Things really started going bad for him in 1993. He scorched headlines for multiple plastic surgeries and increasingly odd behavior.

Despite earning hundreds of millions of dollars he was reported to be $500 million in debt thanks largely to his eccentrically extravagant lifestyle.

Reading …… ?

Yesterday 19th June was the “Reading Day” in my place. It is remembered as the death anniversary of a famous leader , P.N.Panikkar who spread the lights and colors of reading to the people by establishing libraries.

As reading spreads a lot of information about the unknown world to us and enlighten us with lots of thoughts and ideas I think it to be a very special day.
I like reading very much especially your beautiful blogs with brave pictures.

Reading skills are specific abilities which enable a reader

* to read the written form as meaningful language
* to read anything written with independence, comprehension and fluency, and
* to mentally interact with the message.

all these sounds so formal.....

But reading is noting but resting your minds.......

Splash! Splash!

It’s a rainy season in my place. It is soo refreshing to have rains after a long summer.

The rains start all of a sudden. You can notice the sky darken up vary fast and in few minutes you will feel the sun has settled for night even at the noon.

Along with the darkness it brings a cool breeze. This is the best time I would like to go for a walk but it may rain in any moment ….. If it rains in evening it will make you very very lazy.

Once the rain drops down it brings a lot of freshness to you. You can see the tip of trees perfectly clears. It is as if rains are to clean the air and earth.

It makes you calm and peaceful for the rest of day….
This may be how the earth takes her bath……….!

Queen of Hearts …..

Malayalam and English well known writer Kamala Das, also known as Kamala Suraiya, passed away on Sunday 31 May.

Kamala Das, one of the outstanding poets of India, writing in English and Malayalam, was born on March 31, 1934 in Malabar in Kerala. She began writing poetry at an early age. A trailblazer in the Indian English poetry, she is the first Indian woman writing in English who talks about experiences of life. She abandoned the secure field of writing about teenage bloodless, unrequited love.
According to her, poetry is "the April sun squeezed like an orange juice", the heat permeates into the mind of reader. Sensitivity is the strength of her poetry.

Writing under the pen name, 'Madhavikutty', she is one of the foremost short story writers in Malayalam. She was nominated for the Nobel Prize in literature, along literary personalities such as Nadine Gordimer and Doris Lessing. Her widely acclaimed stories include Pakshiyude Maranam, Neypayasam, Thanuppu, and Chandana Marangal.

And thus she became the queen of all hearts….
