    Great post. Very inventive!

    Are you proposing this for the current school curriculum?

      Thanks for stopping by. ๐Ÿ™‚
      LOL, I really wish. Education Boards need to revamp their strategies. It’ll make learning better than watching movies. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Neraya padam papeengalo? Movie critic ah? Illa chumma appa kasa waste panravangala? ๐Ÿ™‚

    I can see a lot of (useless) effort has gone into making this. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Honestly speaking, I couldn’t identify with half of the characters depicted here. I guess I gotaa pull up my socks and start watching movies left, right and center! ๐Ÿ˜€

    And yeah, Mendeleev would truly be proud of your creation had he been alive today!


    P.S – N.O.M.!

      So, however (useless) it was, thanks for taking a look at it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      And yes, I guess you do need to watch a lot of movies. Stereotypes aren’t created with just one or two of them. No wonder out of a 1000 being produced annually in India, only some 50 movies get recognition and we end up watching, say, abt 5/6 of them?

        True! Its long since I shifted my focus to Hollywood. Unless there is a really good movie in Tam/Hin, I don’t go to the theaters. Bad situation ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        And I am guessing ‘M.A.’ is your pseudonym, correct?

    the table is interesting and you must have spent a hell of time on it!

      Thank you very much for your time, Sir.
      No, honestly, it took me two full evenings to finish it. I ended up re-learning school level chemistry. ๐Ÿ˜€

    I am staring at it for 3 min, and still cannot grasp neither the concept nor the point of this…
    what was the purpose of you creating this “arrangement”?
