நடந்தது என்ன? - 1

12.01.2004 (திங்கள்)

காலையில் - பி.கே.சிவகுமாரிடமிருந்து மரத்தடி மட்டுறுத்துனர்களுக்கு பொங்கல் தினச் சிறப்பு நிகழ்ச்சியாக கதை, கவிதைப் போட்டி நடாத்தினால் என்ன என்று ஒரு மடல் வந்தது.

Dear PKS,

My points

1. This is indeed a very good idea.

2. When i read that you would shoulder the ubayatharar
duty, i hesitated a little. But, we could do this
again may be for Easter (?), not just confining to
hindu festivals. Even though tamil new year is coming

3. How about katturai?

4. Is there any restriction for moderators from
joining the fray?

5. Having outside judges is a really good idea.

note: fwding this mail to Prasanna, even though he is
not a moderator.


மட்டுறுத்துனர்களும் இன்னும் சில மரத்தடி உறுப்பினர்களும் இது குறித்து தங்களுக்குள் கருத்துப் பரிமாறிக்கொண்டனர். அவற்றில் சில கட்டுரைப் போட்டி பற்றியது. மரத்தடியில் சிலர் மரபுக் கவிதையில் நாட்டமுடையவர்களாதலால் மரபுக் கவிதைக்குப் போட்டி வைப்பது என்றெல்லாம் பேசினோம். கட்டுரை, மரபுக்கவிதைப் பிரிவுகளைச் சேர்ப்பதில் இருக்கும் நடைமுறைச் சிக்கல்களை உணர்ந்து அடுத்த போட்டியில் பார்த்துக்கொள்ளலாம் என்று முடிவு செய்யப்பட்டது.

dear pks,

I like it.

I did not think abt the complications involved when i
suggested katturai (naanum pOttila kalanthukkathaan :D
vera enna :D ).

and i agree with you abt the complications.

maybe for now we can restrict to important occasions

We can make this a bi-monthly affair or quarterly.

monthly is not a good idea i think - for 1. lack of
time for the participants and judges.

2. ubayathaarar kedaikirathu kashtam.

3. kungumapoo, cashew nut maathiri sparing'a use
panninaaththaan, arumai puriyum. :D
