Halloween latest addition in Panjangam

In a rather expected turn of events today, famed astrologer Sri Sri VellayurPanayur Narayanan Swami announced that Halloween had been officially included in the Panjagam*. Upon further enquiry as to the addition, he retorted "Are you freakin' kiddin' me? Do you have any idea how many Halloween parties I've been invited to this year? It's the event of the year, man! I mean the only thing that comes as close is the 4th of July fireworks show."

When asked if there was any opposition, Sri Sri confided that the only issue was that Iyengars wanted to celebrate Halloween on a different day than the others. "Like thats surprising! But once I get the final confirmation, I can get on with the most crucial step - editing the wiki page for panjagam. Oh how long I've been dreaming of this moment." he finished tearfully.

Public reactions to this addition have also been positive. "Finally!" remarked Sachchu Maami, noted DD Podhigai "Samayal Samayal" chef. "That Ambujam went to America to see her daughter for one month and all she could talk about was Halloween! About time we get to celebrate it as well!" she said as she was picking up her Wonder Woman costume.

"Just another publicity stunt this is. What reaction do they expect from us?" opined SP Raju, President of Nageshwar Rao Park Pensioners Club. "But if they're going to put special programmes all day on Siripoli, I don't mind, hehe" He added quickly, and went on to discuss about Ramya Krishnan's moving performance in the previous day's episode of Thangam with the other members.


Upon other Halloween related news in Chennai, T.Rajendar was given "Best costume award" at a Halloween party when in reality he had been protesting against the event. "Pogo channel shows Mr.Bean, Unakku edhukku da Halloween?" he shouted, raising an alarmingly logical question as he proceeded to accuse that Halloween was "suppressing oppressing and depressing the people of Chennai". However, he calmed down considerably after being given his prize. "Sorry for the interruption, that was only my introduction. This may be prize, but it is not a surprise." he grinned, dazzling everyone with mad rhyme skyllz. "Back when I was making my blockbusters, apart from being the director, actor, producer, scriptwriter, story writer, dialogue writer, music director, choreographer,tea boy, I was the one who also designed the costumes". He declared, and left much before anybody could ask him how exactly he had put together his very realistic Gorilla costume.

Also seen making a hasty exit was Actor Vijay who had in fact won second prize for his mechanic costume. Sources say that when his name was announced, he went "But I'm not wearin' a fuckin' costume!" before randomly screaming "Ei!" at a press-photographer.

  1. As she saw Ambujam walk home with her Halloween costume, Pankajam was reminded that Thanksgiving was just around the corner and made a mental note to buy some Tofurkey and cranberry sauce for the holiday. Meanwhile, Pattu maami had one-upped both by shopping for Christmas lights already. :D

    :D :D
    sooooo true. As is the case with Diwali we'd end up celebrating twice during the same calendar year. One with the rest of the world and the other exactly a month later with the celebrations confined to the house for obvious reasons ;). Blessed souls

  7. If they can live with a page on the good and bad effects of lizards falling on various parts of your body, I don't see why any addition should generate a controversy!

  10. The ancient scriptures do actually prove that Halloween is a part of the Indian culture, screamed Sushma Swaraj in the Lok Sabha.

    Not a big revelation considering the fact that many weird creatures were shaking their heads in the assembly!

  15. panjangam - tamilification of panchangam (sanskrit, literally "five limbs"). In telugu we pronounce it correctly. Aravas seem to get everything wrong! ;P

  16. someone complained about the article not being on wiki... Here it is:
    Panchangam
    That's one advantage of pronouncing things correctly!
