!Expectation != !Disappointment

By which I mean to say , even if you have no expectation, few people do possess a rare attribute of disappointing you anyway.

The TV show Avatar - The Last Airbender was one of the shows my sis insisted me on watching. On persuading one my friends K, I got all the Books (Book1 - Water , Book2 - Earth, Book3 - Fire). I started loving Aang, Katara, Sokka instantly, Sokka being my favorite. I was sad the day I finished all the chapters. I tweeted, FB-ed about it :( . I thought there is atleast the movie to look forward to.. :)

Alas, the movie was a big disappointment( actually disappointment is the best humble word I could think of) and the reviews were full of rotten tomatoes. But being a fan of The Last Airbender, I dared to watch it and with absolutely no expectations.

Alas again, I found it no more than a rip of the most entertaining TV series, like a gag made to defame it.

No, its not the way 'the Avatar' should be introduced.
Yes, background score could have fetched you lesser rotten tomatoes.
No, you are not supposed to make 'The Avatar' cry wherever you feel like crying.
Where are the warriors of Kyoshi? Where is the king of Omashu?
Yes, little fun would have filled atleast 1/4 of the theatre.
And yes, the actor can atleast give a low squeal when then are hit by something. It just adds a feel and yes lesser tomatoes.
The Avatar escaping is not your tea time casual topic, and hence show some astonishment!
Why is the fire lord not wearning a crown?
Having all NRI actors helps your pocket(correction - helps only your pocket! )
Why did I feel the fight between the best fire bender and the best air bender is nothing more than a wrangle between two kids?
Why was the word 'Spirit' mentioned more than the word Avatar? We are out of 'Sixth Sense' so lets concentrate on Avatar.
Why is the bending bent, squeezed,crushed and thrown out of the movie?
Finally, the climax. Actually leave it. There is no point.

throw your megaphone and get out from that chair. I'll direct Book 2 and Book 3.

An article from TOI - Srirangam: Gateway to Heaven

So, after a long break, the newspaper boy surprised us by delivery the newspaper(TOI) one wintry morning. The below is one of the article of that day's TOI's edition.
Srirangam: Gateway to Heaven To devotees, particularly Vaishnavites, the Ranganathaswamy temple at Srirangam near Trichy in Tamil Nadu is their sacred gateway to heaven.

Among the 108 temples in south India that are of utmost importance to Vaishnavites, Srirangam tops the list. Here, Vaishnavai saint Godha Devi is believed to have merged with the idol and attained salvation. According to legend the idol rose up from the celestial Milky Ocean. It is a large, monolithic black statue of Vishnu, reclining on Adisesha, the divine serpent. It was received by Brahma and left in his custody till Vishnu as Rama gave it to Vibheesana, the noble brother of the slain demon king Ravana.

Vibheesana wished to carry it back to Sri Lanka. Rama told him that it was not to be placed down under any circumstances. Vibheesana …
