Amazing HORSES

Style and speed is what I like about horses. I think the horses are very amazing intelligent animals compared to the other animals, domestic or that the human are very closely associating with. One of the expensive animals I guess is the horses compared to the innocent bulls or cows or aggressive tigers and lions or adjustable camels, incredible cheetahs.

Northern Dancer , storm cat , the green monkey saw these amazing talents showing their full scholars on grounds through internet. I wanted to know few names of the female sports stars who does horse racing so they appear before me under the tag of ‘Famous female jockeys’ here are few of them now and then; Anna Lee Aldred, Chantal Sutherland, Clare Balding Emma Jayne Wilson

I love horse riding and actually the style of horse riding.  The games such as horse racing and other sports activities similar gets the attention of most the people around the world. And these are very interesting games. Especially during the Olympic season this particular game gets attention like the running events 100 meters though such events held not just to rate the ‘most fastest man of the earth / universe (Ben Johnson)

I like the style, speed the communication and understanding between the jockey and the animal. I think the horses are ready for any road or path. 

Trained horses are different from the wild horses no need to say.      

I think when ever you see a smart horse; you can not take your eyes off from them like when you get a chance to view a star of spot light arena. Brown, white and dark you get various skin tones of this animals.  Skin tone is not very much a concernable feature when it comes to horses actually what matters and important is ‘their style and speed’, the uses as well.
I think the horses are one of the privileged animals of this earth. Apart from the myths and folklores, stories related to horses it is interesting to watch the creations, movies, productions based on true stories and fictions, scripted on these animals. Horse carts are one of the very stylish types of passenger carriages of past very before the other technological travels and tours, air buses cars and vans came in to the day to day lives and scenes of peoples.

I think there are horse training centers you can not just play with a horse the way you want, especially when you are planning to ride a horse for a race. Jumping on to a horse or sitting on a horse is not enough to ride a horse. There are techniques to follow.

In the war histories of very past horses are one of the five regiments attached to old days’ war regimes. Hope I am right. Elephants, horses are two of the five I mentioned.   

Racecourse Ground Colombo Sri Lanka 

The landlords and lords love and respect these animals more than they like and respect their servants or the boys and girls who takes care of horses and their shelters
Nuwara Eliya Racecourse _ Sri Lanka

And unlike the readers who read good English papers there are some good readers I find read and pronounce the names of the horses and the names of the jokeys in a brilliant way.  There are songs written on the subject of horse racing and bookies and people’s lives. How some of these races affects lives of people id debatable.  The hopes and desires that brings via the details sheets of horse racing, horses, jokeys, price moneys in to the life objectives of some people, often spoils their real desires to because some men do not like to do any hard work, earn a living in other ways, other than betting sitting on a chair of a bookie (centre) asking them to write their destiny sheets, without working. Often such brings burdens in to family spheres. Following song says the man who lost in the morning from their betting do the same in the evenings as well. some of them live a dreamy life thinking of the chances winning the first prize and building houses, buying luxury cars etc.  They dream about the bag of prize keeping their desires and hopes of lives on the moving horses, races.  

Miniseku pita negi asaruweki
A bara gei wahalata baraki
Paandarin peradunu a miniha hendeweth asu pitata nagee
Heta mama gedarata sura sepa denawa
Ada rae lunu mirisen gathawenawa
Kaasi malla sathekuge pita yanawa
Du daruwan pedure nidiyanawa
 Iranam wisanduma sathekuta denawa
Thirisenekuta minisekeu paradinawa
Daruwanmirindath gini uhulanawa
Heeen numbathawa gewal hadanawa

Games become famous because of the players and because of the people involved. Jockeys and bookies become famous and important because of these animals, Horses and thanks to the people who involved and giving such games a important place in their lives. 

Following names I found on internet, Javier Castellano, Joel Rosario, Irad Ortiz, Jr., L. Ortiz, John R. Velazquez, Mike E. Smith, Victor Espinoza, Jose Lezcano, Joseph Talamo, Rosie Napravnik. I have not heard about them before but among the people who know the game they are heroes or they are the ones who bring them bulks of money in their dreams of prizes, because of races, horses.
Betting’, often we see in life dealings but betting is different within the game spheres of horse racing.  For any game, a ground is important. Without a ground no out door games can be played. For cricket you need a ground which is suitable for a game - cricket. You can not play cricket where the ground is set for football, similarly you can not race your horses in a cricket ground. Grounds are as such. For indoor games the ground you need to play a game is different to the grounds you need to play an indoor game.       

Racecourse Hipodromo da Gavea

The ground that is set for horse racing has a name. In English speaking countries the ground is identified or known as ‘racecourses’ and in America the ground become a ‘race track/s’. Following details about a racecourse, I found from the same web page
Hipódromo da Gávea is located in Gávea Neigbourhood, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. According to the same source it has a capacity of 80 000 with 3000 seating facilities and was built in 1926. I guess horse racing is even older than the mentioned year that the ground was built.

Horses were used for hunting in older days of mankind, as a hobby etc.   
Interesting part related to horse racing is ‘you do not have to be in the racecourse to bet or to know who is winning. Information flows from the grounds like a jet via various sources.  I have no idea as to who has introduced these games to the people of village, cities or towns of our country all I know is there are bookies not only in towns or cities though the racecourse is available with no horses visible, in rural to urban. I think colonization was undoubtedly the partner of introducing the game in to lives of our people. I do not say that horse racing is something bad, some have mistaken and bet their lives through these games. I can not find a single area where there are no race bookies and race bookies which give their customers various percent discount 10 , 15, 20%. But I have no idea how the deals are functioning within.

Actually those are easy money no sweat is sweated to earn money depending on the money pay to bet they get money in return. If the betted horse wins if not the person looses the money spent for betting.  Some do this as a hobby but wives complains about their husbands who spend the money that has for their other future purposes, for betting their lives on the name of a known or unknown horse

Following song is written to describe such situation and it revels a feeling of a wife of a man who bets on horses though he does not know to read any alphabet but the detail sheet of horses and jockeys. This is one of the oldest songs. This song was sung by late artist Mrs. Malini Bulathsinhala

Mala pothe akuru beha kee miniha
Engeerisi paththarayak mula indala agata balanawa
Aga indala mulata balanawa
Kohen igena gattada manda
Mala pothe bea kee miniha
Man kendan aa dawase kana athsana gehuwa kena
Punchi punchi thundu kalei ekata thiyanawa
Menna bole engireese akuru liyanawa
Paadarama kade gihin gena paththare balala
Muna narak karagena niyapothu kanawa
Kahata koppaya peththaka seethala wenawa

The man who said ‘I know no letters’,
Reading an English paper,
from front to last page,
Last page to front page,
Do not know from where he has learned to read

The man who couldn't signature our life,
The day that we wedded,
Surprising! The man writes letters,
Small, small chits in English

Biting nails with a frustrated face,
Reading the paper bought early in the morning
The morning cup of tea kept on the stool,
Becoming cold

The man who said ‘I know no letters’ …………………

Games often changes lives of people. Riding a horse for a game is different to riding a horse as a hobby. Anyways life is a game and this world we live is full of games and players, grounds, and prize moneys. Choose what is really good for you and better training is essential what ever race or game you play. It is not just a one person who is racing in a competition or in a game when everyone is racing paying less attention to their break pads, tracks the man who is sitting on the ground betting gets better chances to win other than the riders – horse, the jokeys.
Take care riders!

Thank you Sir, Visharadh Edward Jayakodi

Visharadh Edward Jayakodi is undoubtedly one of the most prestigious, brilliant, Artists that the Sri Lankans owns.  His one of the most famous, accredited concerts ‘ Marambari’ was held yesterday ( 29th July, 2014)
at the Bandaranayake Memorial International Conference Hall ( BMICH) at 6.30 pm. The concert was musically directed by the veteran musician Mr. Rohana Weerasigne

Mr. Jayakodi has been performing and contributing his knowledge for the students of all levels and to the Sri Lankan Music field for years

So I apologize on behalf of everyone for stealing a chance of another. We are not unfamiliar of the songs of his contribution but we (fans) were honored and respected by giving the opportunity to watch the concert.

The CART of Good Wills: A Travel partner of history ........................

I know that I am a woman of this 1970 – 2014 era (do not be mistaken I am a survived) yet I love the idea of BULL’s CART in particular. I know that there are several types of carts apart from the Bulls carts, the horse carts including. I am not going to compare the two types of carts and trying to mention the other carts of past or of the medieval periods, especially because the cart to jet there is a huge gap, technologically and even logically. The story of human development or the development of ‘thinking of human being’ is not easily discussable or describable because I am not an expert.

There were periods that people carried people keeping them on a carriage by their shoulders. Some of them were traditional carriages that had something to do with customs and traditions. So let me just peep in to the idea of people carrying people. This people who were known as classely lower than just one particular class compared to the other classes, were the people who carried the people of higher classes on their shoulders, back in the eras of colonial and even since before though they carried forward the this activity of moving ahead on the shoulders of others. While this particular class / caste of people who not as a profession but as a servant of these hierarchical class had to use their full strength to carry forward, pushing forward the class of higher levels got nothing basically in the past. But there were very little that understood ‘the cowardness of moving ahead on the shoulders of other people.  There are only a few who has the ability to use their own strengths and capacities to move ahead in the journeys of their lives.

Though the idea of carts is attractive the cart moves ahead on the shoulders of a couple of bulls or on the shoulders of just a single bull. Especially when the roads were not tared or carpeted or not even properly cleaned gravel roads the hills and mountains were not smoother to passing through. None of the Bathalagala, Haputhale or Kadugannawa, the mountains was easy to climb. Imagine a cart carrying passengers along with their goods.

The bulls cart is much closer to me than the horse carts that I have seen in the motion picture movies, Columbia, Universal picture movie creations. I can memorize of a scene of the LES MISERABLES, the book, the Sinhalese translation that we had to study as our ordinary level for Sinhala, for the literature part. ‘Manuthapaya ‘- the literal meaning of the title is ‘The sorrows of human beings’ or ‘The sufferings of human beings’        

I can’t memorize the entire movie called ‘Mathalan’, a movie that has created years back.  But one of the songs of the movie, I still can memorize that is because at least very, very, very often, the FM channels, the radios broadcast the song. I decided to write only the drafted Sinhalese meaning of the song using my unpolished language ability in translate something from Sinhala to English

Hurry up spotted bull ………
                             Without obeying competently,
Giving the newly wedded, some joy
Hurry up spotted bull lets move towards, the house of in laws.
I will give you my dear menika
Some honey+fully riped jack,
Once we return home

Hurry up spotted bull ……………

The speed of cart travels can not be measured in kmph s. the speed of the cart depends on the strength of the animal (bull) and also it depends on the strength and experience of the captain of the cart. The kewita (small stick uses to motivate bulls to paddle the cart faster) good hearted captains do not like to use this kewita because if the captain hits the animal like punishing them it hurts the animal.
People who knew how to make carts, the carpenters were known as ‘rich in skills’ – groups. It is not as easy as painting a car. Car painters uses the newest technology the cart manufacturers had to use their skills and brains using what so ever tools created by themselves, such as niyana, yaththa, mitiya and kiyatha

The circling wheels or the kerakena riya saka the literal meaning in Sinhala people often like to use as an example to the unending journey of the sancara, in its descriptions.

Sansaare bhawe duka
Sri sesi desu mesi
Duka sepa deka nithi perale riya saka lesa loke

The lord Buddha Preached, sansaaric journey brings sadness (Dukkha).  Happiness and sorrow is something that turns and changes constantly like a wheel of a cart.

There are folklores and poems, stories related to the groups of carts that traveled long distances reciting poems to aid the tiredness of long distance travels.

Gaela is the term used to identify or describe/ uses to introduce, ‘the cart’ in the old literature. And the term most familiar to me and the generations after me or little before me is ‘karaththaya’ not the term gaela.

Gael raala is the person who rides the cart. Gael karu is a term used to describe the same. The term Karaththakaaraya is used instead of the term gael karu or gael kaaraya in day to day conversations of people but it is not known as respectable way to address the person. It is not known as a term very insulting either.

I remember when we were constantly changing our residences, renting houses, back in early 1970’s we used a bull cart to move what we owned packing them on a particular box of soap -‘sunlight’. Those days there were no family movers – companies’ but carts or old type Lorries.

Karaththa kawi are famous chapters of books of the literatures of old times.

Mostly they carried goods from place to place ‘karaththa kawi were sang by the groups of  cart men mainly to aid their tiredness until they reach their planned destinations, stopping at certain resting places called ‘ambalama’ example; ‘kadugannawa ambalama. You may have noticed a certain building right side of the road, Kadugannawa, if you are travelling from Colombo towards Mawanella, Pilimathalawa or to Peradeniya, Kandy.

                             ‘kalu gal thalalai paarata damanne
                             Ema gal pegilai gon kura gewenne
                             Gona nemei harakai bara adinne
Kirgal potta kandai api naginne’

‘Pieces of stones – gravel, what is layered on these paths,
The strengths of the legs of these bulls, are diminishing, aching, because we are traveling on these gravel surfaces,

It is not the bulls who carry the heaviness (of life), the kiri gal potta hill, that is what we are climbing now.’

Duppath kamata gon bengena - dakkanawa
Kantath nethiwa diwa rae api - wehesenawa
Gontath noyek wada dee api - geniyanawa
Denwath dukata dewiyo pihitak – wenawa

Because of poverty, without eating, day & night, giving hazels to the bulls, we proceed, dear God, at least now, ease our sorrows
(Above poems are abastracted from the collection of poems ‘jana kawi muthuhara’- by P.H. Ranasinghe)

The carts of past were not just a mode of passenger movers. There were indescribable stories attached to these lives of people of past.  I think the aches and pains of those people who carried ‘people by their shoulders towards their preferred destinations from past to present writes the pages of present not in ink but sweat of past.

Lets respect each and every person of past of all eras for teaching us ‘how to bear what so ever pains during their travels, journeys , short distance or long distance until they reach their desired destinations facing battles of past , fighting against ‘injustice’, insults etc.

An Amateur .......................

Often, I try to pick and choose titles, topics, words, from various sources for me to write something and post on foot path. The sources are not limited and topics are never difficult to pick and choose. To search for a topic looking around is sufficient. You can write about sky, about birds, about trees anything you hear or see. 

I do not think that you can exactly watch what you watched a few moments ago because ‘things keep changing’ , take a small plant that you planted few days ago what can you observe ? is the plant look same? take 'self' as a person, your surroundings , the sky for instance. let me write what i observe during this elaboration on 'an Amateur', 

Few minutes ago, I observed a tiny dark cloud and in about few minutes later I could not locate the same cloud but a ranges of dark clouds. And the colour of the cloud also was different to the cloud that I observed earlier.

Life is full of changes and differences, inevitable. We lack nothing in these universe things to write, things to talk, things to draw, things to paint thongs to discuss and things to fight; over a piece of land, a book, something or anything.         

There are no clouds to be seen but i noticed a group of little birds were flying over to the roof of the house of the neighbor of near lane.

I often like to go for movie hunt. My today’s choice was Soviet Russian, German and also Chinese but finally I end up watching a Japanese movie with English sub titles. A good movie ‘Tokyo Newcomer’, a Chinese in Tokyo who tried to play GO but was not an amateur to the game.  This is the first time I heard about Go and have not seen anyone playing the game before, so i had no clues about the game. interesting to watch the players were using black & white objects and i saw, the players were moving the objects and keeping on some of the places of the game board. I believe were following the rules of the game. Looked similar to Chess but there was no King or a queen in the areas of the game, i noticed.   

The colour of the sky is different to the colour of the sky earlier.  And I can see some white clouds were not trying to still but moving as well.

The surrounding looks 'mute' a bit. no voices to be heard.  i did not over heard any conversation from our immediate neighbourhood ,between the grand son and the grandfather.   

Every generous genius had to pass the stage - ‘amateur’ before he or who ever reaching the stage of ‘genius’ or great’.

John Mcenroe was an amateur to the field of Tennis before he started playing professional tennis in the courts of the super stars and play star class game like Wimbledon.    

A couple of white clouds trying to move towards east or west I have no idea.

Our Susanthika was an amateur before she started running on the grounds of Olympians. Aravinda De Silva was an amateur before he started playing professional and accurate cricket in the global grounds of cricket. 

The sky is cloudless.

To read something accurately or to draw something beautifully one can not do on an instance basis. To read how to pronounce the alphabet of any mother tongue a kid has to learn methodically, step by step. And no kid learn Z without learning the letter A – Y though it is true that kids pick and choose from what they hear and rarely start from Z not from A (some) before reaching the stair cases of a school a child may show some abilities in pronouncing letters accurately, at least a few letters of an alphabet,. Such kids may have learned them from their siblings, perhaps.

I can’t read sky accurately because it is ‘almost night’ I do not know whether the sky is full of clouds or cloud less but I hardly saw a craw ( not sure) was flying.

I brought the book, ‘Almost night’ of the author Ann Prospero but could not complete reading other than few pages of the book. 

Few moments ago I notice that the perhaps the same craw (again not sure), flying taking the opposite route, towards the area that he originally came from must be returning to his original place or where he came from.

I an amateur to the Tamil Language though I can speak a bit and while watching Tokyo newcomer I could memorize some of the words I learned from a teacher who came to our house via television few years back. I watched them on National 
Television / Rupavahini. She was a Sinhalese teacher who was speaking like real Japanese and wore a kimono, a Japanese traditional outfit during the lesson.  What is her name? I can’t remember.  

Every newly wedded is an amateur to the concept of 'living' in a different context.  

Stand like a Peony tree and walk like a Lilly (?) have I quoted the right phrase? I doubt. Peony is the National flower of Japan, right? Trees are firm no doubt ‘deforestation’ is a familiar term.

Some amateurs learn things faster and become qualifiers. Some are slow learners. Stand firm that is what any amateur or qualifier or genius must do. Immatureness is not a disqualification or an amateur is not a dis qualifier.

Fixing something broken often an amateur can do better than a qualifier because they like to give it a try not just because they know how to fix.
I can see that the streets lights have started their ‘duty’ and a pale light of the house of a neighbor of the front lane is trying to peep through a mat giving me some opportunity to read a bit of the outskirt of my place of living.

i can hear some children are singing a song from an unknown vicinity.

for the CHAMPS of global foot ball - 2014 and champs of all ERA s

This is to mark the ‘foot ball world cup – 2014

This stealer, Young and energetic, 176 cm in height , 22 in years has stolen all the hearts of billions not only of Memmingen but also of HEARTS OF BRAZILIANS, the hospitality Nation Is that all?

what about the other global partners of foot ball of all continents. 

How are you going to compensate dear Mario Gotze, the handsome stealer? I guess there are ways to compensate but one of the positive ways according to my personal knowledge is to compensate something, is to be a healthy and positive contributor to the game of foot ball and handover the game in to the next generations in its original shape, design and pattern without really spoiling or harming it. Exactly like the good players did in the past.

what am i talking about the whole team is full of stealers of hopes of other nations who were longing to won the trophy

My Gratitude and respect also goes to to PELE the player of universe and to the all other players as well. i thought it is alright to take a bit of space from young foot ball of 2014 to respect the stars of yester year for their contributions because no game grows healthily and bravely without the contributions of sweats and strengths of past 

In the hearts of good players there is no ‘selfishness’ or ‘cruelness’ to be seen. They watch all youngsters play with a heart felt happiness not with jealousy or any other ill willed minds. They want every player to play good foot ball for the sake of the game as a sport.

I think breaking rules of the game often is a mistake and can be adjustable or correctable. Some of the points that I am indicating here are not just related to any particular game I talk things commonly. Or I am not particularly focusing on the final or semi final match of foot ball – 2014.

I am often amazed about how some win their games.  I think every game is unpredictable. Until last moment of winning a trophy even the players can not predict anything 100% it is how the ball turns towards the goal area or out of the ground.  Some win over the penalties of others. Within a game there are chances of penalizing others by scoring well.

For any loosing side, loosing a game is a penalty. How you defeat your opposite side is a different picture to analyze.   If you play a gentleman game in any game you play you are ‘rewarded’ in any of the moments to come. That is the trophy that a loosing side get. Fair play is always a goal and a positive picture of future sports, game.  People often do not try to remember how you hit the ball towards the goal whether it was hit over to the head of the other players or through the legs of the most dangerous player of the team but the name of the goal taker or the most contributed player. 

Often people like us forget that there is no one man show in a group activity or in a game where there are 11 – 18 players are involved or less or more than that. Every player is a contributor to lose a game or to win a game.  And to win a game a side has to lose. Often games are won over weaknesses of other players. If you are not a very competitive player others can easily win any game. But if you fight and lose the winners would remember that it was not an easy game for them to win. Even the losers can breathe libertifully at the end of the game thinking that they fought but lost, respecting the rules of the game.   

Often you find the games won without popular heroes of sports but sudden popped up players with loads of inner patience.

Also, often, alternatives works well in games and I think fixed plans are not always possible to use in the grounds of games because often you can not read other players before a game totally correctly or 100 % accurately just by viewing previous games played.   

Often players change their old routines of playing, confusing the other players of the game. Therefore unpredictabilities are assured in games. I guess that is what you called strategic playing.

I guess players are not isolated figures in a ground or in a team until there is a good captaincy is to be seen or apparent but the players always can not depend totally on the decisions of the captains in a game because often moments arrives to use or test the own captaincy talents of other players without harming the game or aim of winning of a team. That is part of team spirit of games / sports

Fines or penalties are not something fixed to discourage players but to respect or protect the quality of the game, I believe.

So how are we going to penalize Mario Gotze, Someone who has achieved something in his or her life, for stealing the hopes and aims of Argentinians?        

I thought of inviting Mario and his team to visit Sri Lanka as a punishment for winning the global trophy of football

I am sure he and his team mates understands the difference between the roses and the stones that might have come their way when winning or losing goals of their lives.
I guess this man, Mario is TOOOOOOOOO young to understand all these easily of all the facets of games on and off the ground of living. 22 in years there is no way to learn everything of all the games of this universe, existing.  I am sure, you‘ll learn the other games of life slowly, I recon.

The real penalties of life, the match referees who shows the players of games, red or yellow cards or the weights of fines and though you may understand the smells of rewards. Life is not la la one always. The real life situations are different to the games played in a ground of standard widths and lengths.  Life sometimes gets the shapes and sizes of a game of soccer and sometimes it is a DUZRA that comes your way. Life is not something like hitting a leg by or scoring a century.  Life is part of an analysis of understanding the hopes and dreams of Argentineans as well. There are facets of games and life as I always say.  Hospitalities do not always get the trophies for doing so but in the real picture they are the ones who are scoring a lot than the real goal earners if you think a little for giving a ground of SPACE & SUPPORT, immeasurable.

Let me send a basket full of roses to the young talent identificators of Germany not only to the creator of Mario without chasing away even the eight year olds. Hats off to ‘The Dortmund’s youth academy’  for sharpening his foot angles, for strengthening his toes and ankles, polishing the rhythm of foot until he reach the goal of not a single man but of a Nation, Fan of a Universe and to all the good hearted coaches and creators , founders of good players

So is it just Mario Gomez who should get the FLOWERS from this foot path Noap the whole team of Germany and each and every team of this global competition / sports activity.

All the TEAMS of well disciplined and the team of Argentina, without an opposition with loads of strength winning won’t get much recognition from outer world.  
The German strengths could have won the game during the given time but it was never easy am I right? The teams had to go for an extra play time. WHY because the ARGENTINIANS WERE STRONG IN THE GROUND. 

I believe the players have to change their ground strategies or the game strategies accordingly I do not think the strategies that the legends like PELE used can be applied in everyday games of SOCCER and I do not think that every player can bend the ball like Beckhm of all time not only of the past.

Every game teaches lessons. I do not think that we can throw away funny moments of games thinking that they are funny nothing to get. Games are not funny. Games are something that lot of people invests their aims and hopes in to the games.  I feel that the cameras may not get chances to capture every aches and pains of ankles and toes of every player of this game of soccer.

Winning a game is an investment of loads of PATIENCE, I believe. I do not think that suggesting a substitute is something to do with ones DESTINY.  I guess it is getting maximum use of a BRAIN. Abilities of getting OR CHOSING right DECISIONS ON the moments of NEED, in order TO REACH THE AIM OR THE OBJECTIVE OF THE GAME.

GAMES do not stay STILL it moves in and around the ground of game, across goal areas, through the head of goal keepers. To decide what to do THE COACHES can decide OR PLAN, STANDING VERY NEAR THE LINES OF THE GROUND ORDERING OR COMMANDING THEM but often we do not get chances to read their contribution off screen.       

Hats off to coaches 

Mario was not at all a bad substitute  let me stop for now keeping that in my mind.

 lets protect the spirit of the game

Canned FISH

This is a dedication piece of essay for the people who is highly worried about selling canned fish without selling freshly killed fish : - )

I know that we lack no fish because we are an Island. Not only that we have inland fish cultivation as well. So what fish problem we have, I have no clues. O actually nobody complaint over ‘lack of fish population’ in the country. Therefore the minister of Fisheries or inland fisheries has no reason to worry.

People are so and really worried about a man or a woman called Saman who does not have any canned fish to eat I guess.  So I am worried about this SAMAN who ever he is , actually not about SALMAN ( canned fish) very much, if I meet this poor Saman I might be able to buy him a plate of Rice with Maalu ambul thiyal or with a dish of Salman fish ( canned fish)

Come appear before me dear Saman I might be able to help you.

Ok let me turn my essay towards ‘ Canned fish and tanked fish’
I love ornamental fish but I do not like the idea of caging them though I am a fishtarian.

Actually I have been trying to locate this Saman since long time now. because people whom I associate and not associate or just say ‘hello’ only or truly worried about me from bottom of their hearts . Some have no reason actually because none of the links we have or maintain.

Canned fish is a good source of money or an income to earn some extra source of money or actual income.

I know there are entrepreneurs who do canning fish as business. I guess it is good reason even a grade one child knows.

I guess ‘canned fishes’ are ‘easy to cook’ and ready to cook’ kind of a meal. It is canned and washed pre cooked (some) and it won’t take much time to ‘serve’ as a tasty dish.

I know that though we have sea fish and inland fish (tank fish) some do not mind ordering dish of canned fish for their meal. I am not sure whether you can order canned fish (cooked version) as chef‘s choice of the day or as meal of the day.

I have seen various canned fish curry choices and preferences given in the menus of star class hoteliers.

Even for ladies who always worry about their troubling husbands : - ] and complaint about their ordering abilities, to bring tea while reading their news paper of the day, week, or month, prepare meals wash cloths can have some of these ‘ canned fish’ tins ready for easy cooking if canned fish is one of their dear husbands’ preferences.

I have not heard of any canning of inland fish (Lula, kanaya, madaya, theppili,) other than sea fish.

In the past canned fish was something that some people definitely received as one of the cookables, raisins, in the welfare packs for poor. I know that canned fish is something that is travelers, pilgrims, in their long distance travels, like to take and cook.      

One of my cousins used to complain when ever we cook canned fish ( Salman) ‘why, we should cook canned fish, what is the problem we have, buying sea fish’, we are surrounded by sea’ I used to say that is because people like to taste different types of fish. Some like tuna while some likes to eat prawns.

But, friends do not be mistaken aaanamalu is not a fish that can be cooked perhaps it is good for banana milk shake.

Oh did I forget to talk about tanked fish. Tank fish is something totally different to tanked fish. I know no need to explain.

Let me explore about ornamental fish on another day.
Canned fish I guess is something we can export. Because we have enough of fish , without a doubt. Big or small.

how to keep an issue before a person?

first let's keep this in our mind. let's not try to keep any issues before anyone. this i basically aimed at unavoidable situations or unpredictable situations of nay carrier handling. and this is not a story or personally aiming at anyone. these are normal facts i guess all know and experience in carrier life but often forget to deal in  away that gives you answers positive or useful with less or no headaches at all.  

Above isn't a very attractive title, isn't it? Who likes issues, me? Never

What about you guys? I do not think that you like to hear or face any issues.
I know no human management or HR management. But my instinct says that ‘how you take it (an issue) first and then how you keep it before a person is important in any issue handling.

I personally believe that there is a little gap between personal life and carrier life of a person. Therefore I often feel that both personal and carrier life somewhat affects both when handing personal and carrier things accurately or freely or relaxly.

Actually all above depends on personalities as well. Some know how to separate personal life from carrier life know how to handle things independently as independent components of life. But there are people who are a little weak in handing such things.    
So as a superior you should not keep any issue before anyone who is assisting you.  Keeping the head, mind, brain of a person cool is important to get the work done. If you make multiple faces( wicked or horrid), turning your lips up side down or turning it to this and that side, with wide eyes, expressing in a way that the whole mountain Everest is on your shoulders or your head, on that point of taking or explaining the issue to your assistant he she become backward.

Give them a ‘POSITIVE LOOK’, any work load or any issue can be solved easily.
I know no questions that can not be found answers.

If you are handling not only your assistants but also service receivers for instance if you are a head of an institute – Education, customer service, advisory agency  what so ever institution there are moments that your external pleasantness or pleasant appearance become vital or useful. I mean not those ordinary measurements I am talking about. I am talking about ‘you should not throw issues in to a face of a person’ ‘try to keep a relax mood before your assistance no matter how big the issue is. That is a strategy I believe. Do not try to show serious faces those will give you troubles specially in maintaining good and fruitful relationship between your co – workers. What you give often what you receive in return.  If you donate a smile you would receive a smile in return. Similarly the opposite happens.  
Then working becomes easier and pleasant. Between workers there should not be huge gaps.  You need to slowly erase the gap of unpleasantness between workers.
I know that it is no easy if you are already practicing certain method of working.

let me take this opportunity to thank those who share a smile with me everyday, very other day, once a week, twice week, once a month. those are really encouraging.  

May you all earn thousands and millions of smiles a day!
