Success of Sirasa Super Star last year lead to a Shakthi Super Star (For Tamil Singers) and a MTV talent search this year.
MBC is applying the same success formula of Sinhala version of Super star to the other 2 languages.
Shakthi super Star will draw a huge attention among Tamil Television viewers in Sri Lanka, because this is the first such experience for them.
But American Idol on ETV has already captured the attention of English music lovers in Colombo, and MTV's talent search will be only for the interest of the ones who compete and their families.

Shakthi super star was going on very well and as a fair competition until last week.

What happened in Shakthi super star last week was totally un-acceptable. It doesn't matter if they don't evict anyone because of judges' decision but last week they told a big lie to the viewers that every participants got the same number of votes. What kind of joke is that? If they want to keep Hamsathvani in the competition despite the number of SMS, it's not a competition!! To hide and compensate what they did, they allowed all 5 participants to the next round on the next day too. What is this? This is totally un-acceptable and being fair to one person is not a fair competiion !! Shakthi should take this in consideration so that it will not happen in the future! Shame ! Realy shame!

What nonsense!
The fact is Hamsadhvani is the Best performer of the last five, and Dhansil on par.
It is a shame on Sri Lankan Tamil audience to have "selected" Sasikaran as the "superstar". It shows what kind of people watch Shakthi TV.
Bull shit Second runner up do not have the slightest idea of what is music. (He didn't even know what's Hamsadhavi means and Ygenthiran was rightly irritated when he mis pronounced it!)
In fact Hamsadhvani, Dhansil and Lilly's daughter are the talents that should have won...
Sasikaran and Siranjeevi can't even talk Tamil properly can;t even pronounce Tamil words properly dosn't have an inkling of what's sruthi or layam.
I am personally apologising to Yugendiran for having him involved in such a degarding programe. I wonder how he put up with such nincompoops like Saikaran lot! Great patients

Well, in democracy people get what they deserve!
I am sure Yugendran will agree with me and time will tell who the real talents are.
Over to you Directors of MTV.

Ps.
I do sympathize with Sasikaran as a "poor talented man first time in Colombo etc..but that is entirely another issue.

Whater it is. It is not fair to involve Yugi here b'coz he was just a presenter and the way of selecting the super star was decided by the Shakthi team and not him. He does whatever they say and get paid for tht! He had done his job excellent!

Well..'Anonymous' [ABOVE]- you are saying that Sasikaran is a poor talented man in Colombo. Hey the fact is that mainly colombo people went to watch the show, and most of the votes are from them. The realily was that north-east people were unable to SMS as of the disabled mobile lines. but still Sasikaran was selected. You should try to encourage someone and NOT addressing someone as 'Poor talented'.

For what you said abt Tamil pronounciation --- Hey music doesn't need Language. Language is apart from what is called MUSIC. It's a second thing. In indian cinema so many hindi singers are singing tamil songs where u cant understand a bit - but u r still enjoying it. So while it happens in the big industry in india, don't bring that non-sense matter to shakthi super star to just put down the participants or the winner.

Be nice to wish all of them and encourage them.

PS. When you say 'what kind of people watch Shakthi TV' - I would like to say all Tamil people watch Shakthi TV b'coz its NO.1. People who have/do only the best of everything whatch Shakthi TV.

Also, I am not being offensive but trying to say the truth.
Keep it up Shakthi. You are doing the right thing and the BEST -'ALWAYS'.

One and Only said... @ 7/24/2007 12:45 PM

AND When I said Tamil people in PS. above [when answering 'anonymous'], I meant all tamil-speaking people and everyone who watch Shakthi -Not only Tamils but all the people who watch shakthi , sirasa, MTV. The people who go for the best!

Anonymous said... @ 7/24/2007 10:51 PM

I agree with you 1&O about Yugi. So with your views on language.
Like the Beauty contests there may be so many more talented outside the scope of competition.
I also agree with encouraging the talented.
But whatever it is there is something basic to music.
I have nothing personally against Sasi 0r Siranjeewi, but the fact remains that "comparatively" (with Dhansil, Hamsadhavani and Lilly's daughter-sorry can't remember the name) Sasi and Siranjeevi were
less talented in terms of music basics.
You know Mr. 1&O in music there is something called Gnanam- which these two doesn't have-that's a fact any of the judges would agree with me. They are at best (Sasi and Siranjeewi) can be categorized as good at "mimicking." not singers.
Parrots can talk can they converse?
Well I am not questioning the SMS votes here, If that's what the votes say.
Neither I am talking about NE.
Mr 1&O SMS voting will only work when the you have a critical mass enough to transcend the friends and relations circles-then only can the SMS voting reflect the real choice. When you have a limited audience of a few thousands, those whose circle can send most sms's or who can achieve a better reach in campaigning wins-it will not reflect the true picture.

Hey I whole heartedly agree with you about music goes beyond music. Even Yesudas can't pronounce "pillai" properly, I agree.
But are they on par with maestro yesudas? Anywhere near?

But when we say Music transcends language barriers we are talking about a different kind of music, aren't we?

Here, Shakthi is conducting the contest for "Tamil Singers" not for just "Singers" (otherwise Sirasa Superstar would have been suff. isn't it?)
First you have to master the rules-then come the exceptions.

Yes, I wish them all best of luck. the Super Star and the runner up should at least make the best of the opportunity and progress from here, only time will tell.


When I said "what kind of people watching Shakthi, I with respect to the under privileged of society- Can shakthi show the data-say; this segment of the society watch Shakthi- and drum up advertisements? It would -to be frank -backfire.


I totally agree with you -Shakthi is a very good station- no questions about that, but what I am saying is despite the good intentions-for reasons beyond MY (personal) comprehension the "real" real talents had not been recognized in this season.

Just thought to answer point by point,

Whateer it is. It is not fair to involve Yugi here b'coz he was just a presenter and the way of selecting the super star was decided by the Shakthi team and not him. He does whatever they say and get paid for that! He had done his job excellent!


TRUE, agreed.

Well..'Anonymous' [ABOVE]- you are saying that Sasikaran is a poor talented man in Colombo. Hey the fact is that mainly Colombo people went to watch the show, and most of the votes are from them.

IF that's the case, it shows how immature and low the music tastes of our society.

"For what you said about Tamil pronunciation --- Hey music doesn't need Language. Language is apart from what is called MUSIC. It's a second thing."

AGREED.

But As I have pointed out, this competition, regardless of one's identity- is for Tamil singers. Two words "Tamil" and Singer". You should know Tamil and you should be able to sing. (Not bray!)

"In Indian cinema so many Hindi singers are singing Tamil songs where u cant understand a bit - but u r still enjoying it. So while it happens in the big industry in India, don't bring that non-sense matter to shakthi super star to just put down the participants or the winner.

"True, but you see that's at a different level. When you have mastered Singing in good Tamil you can go for variety. Another point,
Singers like Udith Narayan, how long do they (songs with that lilt) last comparing to others? That's what you call a fad, just a "fashion thing" -short lived. That doesn't mean we should start from singing in the wrong way?
If you have child, will you start teaching 2+2=1? (which IS possible in higher mathematics) or will teach the filth words in Tamil, saying it's okay as the grown ups are using it?
First you should know your basics. Those are exceptions you're talking about. Talk about the norm.
I also agree that nobody should be penalized cos of bad pronunciation, but What I am saying is that they don't have BOTH!


"Be nice to wish all of them and encourage them"

Good luck to all. OK I have wished them.

I agree Shakthi is the best Tamil channel, we have got.

Continue the good work Shakthi. (But stop the howling signature tunes and hire some professionals for graphics, it's appalling!-show some dignity will you?- Aparna/Elil)

Good answers with good points.

First of all, how can you call me Mr? How do u know if I am Mr or Miss? This shows how you decide things to yourself without enough information. OK This is not a big issue here.

Thanks for agreeing with my points. (at least 1 or 2). I also agree that Dhansil, Hamsadhvani and Lilly’s daughter are good singers (Not to say as “good” singers but best to say “Can be good”). Let me come to your point, Yes they are singing well, there is also a fact that they imitate singers voices and do not have their own style. They rather try to sing like the existing singers. I am not saying it’s wrong but it wouldn’t make a good singer. You have even mentioned above that Sasi and Siranjeevi are mimicking. Why not the same thing with all other participants? Eg. Dhansil imitates Jesudas. I am not being offensive or saying they r wrong –but just pointing out the fact.

Yes, I agree with you about the point abt SMS votes.

Hey Anonymous, you said
“Hey I whole heartedly agree with you about music goes beyond music. Even Yesudas can't pronounce "pillai" properly, I agree.
But are they on par with maestro yesudas? Anywhere near?”

Ans: NO They are NO way near him! No one can stand out if they try to imitate something that already exists. I agree with u.

For what you said about Shakthi- “Can shakthi show the data-say; this segment of the society watch Shakthi- and drum up advertisements? It would -to be frank –backfire”.

No They don’t have to, because people know how good they are. Also, even though every business has their target of making more money, I would say Shakthi is doing many services. For example, although we are making many criticisms against the show, it is a real bridge that brought out some talents to the light (pls don’t start saying there weren’t any real talents in the competition). They are doing something that is helping to improve the skills. Eg. From watching this show, people will want to learn music and participate so that they will be recognised.

Anonymous – This is just a lag phase. Something can only gradually become the best. Not in overnight. In the future, you will see that the participants of this competition will be more and more talented than the previous ones and it will touch the peak one day! I wish all the best to Shakthi to be more successful !

Your point: If you have child, will you start teaching 2+2=1? (which IS possible in higher mathematics) or will teach the filth words in Tamil, saying it's okay as the grown ups are using it?
First you should know your basics. Those are exceptions you're talking about. Talk about the norm.
I also agree that nobody should be penalized cos of bad pronunciation, but What I am saying is that they don't have BOTH!

Yes! I agree.

However, if one is recognised, encouragement is very important for their progress. I agree that pointing out mistakes will be helpful to correct their errors but more encouragement is needed for them to do that. –Which you have already agreed anyway.

Challenging more to Achieve!

Sorry Miss! As you said, I apologise for the haste mistake.
Okay You are a Ms Shaxthi then.
Anyway you have given me an important information here. Otherwise I would have been confused as to whether you're a Miss. or Mrs. or Mr. or in between or both given the political confusion we have now!
So to be politically correct you are a Miss. Thank You very Much.

Anyway I have used that title as a way of exclamation, very much consciously-you would say in Tamil ennada to a female!

Coming to the point...
I also agree with you that it will gradually get better.
With due respects to your opinion, you have missed my point that "comparatively".
True Dhansil too mimics so are Hamsadhvani and LD, but there is a difference between them doing it-that is what you call -if you are musically excitable-gnanam. Which the Thompson and Thomson lack (void of!)


However, if one is recognized, encouragement is very important for their progress. I agree that pointing out mistakes will be helpful to correct their errors but more encouragement is needed for them to do that"

Yes, DEFINITELY. And I wish whole heartedly, that it would become a success.

I would like to see Shakthi FM (FM, NOT Shakthi TV) allocate a good time slot and considerable chunk of its programming for Karnatic music, in near future.

Both teaching and for good listening.

To sum up
I don't care whether Sasi or Siranj. is Superstar.
But what annoys me is the fact the good talents like Dhansil are rejected.
Hope you would agree with me.
Well in a democracy people get the government they deserve!

PLEASE APARNA/Elil
Get rid of that SHAKTHI TV signature tune. It's Horrible! Don't you have something nice to the ear? Do you have scream like that? No hard feeling said with only good intention. Hire some international graphics people please, you can afford it!
Be World Class will you?

So you are really annoyed and disappointed of the eviction of Dhansil. Hmm..OK

Yes! I agree with you that Dhansil is a talented one. But then there were so many like him - and as it is a competition and only one could be a superstar, there had to be rejections of many -for one!

BTW anonymous - I am clueless abt what you are talking abt - in ur previous posts - something about Shakthi - tune. Which tune are you referring to? Signature tune means... :s

Please see my previous posts. The answer is there. True, in a competition Only one can win.
But in a race the one who runs fast wins.):-o.
Yes?!?


FYI
What baffles and intrigues me is how the really talented (Hamsadhvani and all..) three were pushed out of the scene completely?
Well, a signature tune is What a station plays as its identity. In this case Shakthi's "ahh...a..a.a.a.a SHKTHI TV. Nithyashree?).
Compare it with Swarna Vahini's "Sri Lankikeye Abhimane..." or the Sirasa, and come to your own conclusion...

Hope Aparna/Elil or Shanti see the blogs!!!!!!!!!!!

Miss One&Only said... @ 7/26/2007 4:05 AM

Yes I agree that as you said; in a race only the one who runs fast wins.

““What baffles and intrigues me is how the really talented (Hamsadhvani and all..) three were pushed out of the scene completely?””

No, you can’t say they were ‘pushed out’ coz, if u think, as they selected the winners based on the no. of sms votes, u should imagine who the majority of the people went for on that day of grand finals. However, I know that I agreed a point u made on SMS votes (see above posts) – I still agree. But there would be so many things like that which should be regarded as assumptions. Nothing can be 100% fair –be a game or whatever. Assumptions are assumptions, however the judges had the rights to make a decision despite the no. of votes –as they did during the final rounds (as ‘shakthi viewer’ commented on). At that time they were pulling in (if I talk in ur way) the participants in the game despite the votes from the viewers. This had reflected in the grand finals when those who were pulled in (kept in) the contest were pushed out. By the way, I am not being offensive or particularly against anyone. But only the talented ones can go up to the final rounds and who comes first n second is not the highlight, but all 5 were honoured. That’s the good thing. Even though it is a singing contest they were also concentrating on their actions blab la (which I don’t think that important or anything). And some of them were giving over actions and expressions – they were very much concentrating on that rather than singing. But then I wouldn’t say it is a big issue to bring on here. However, when the decision is on the public’s hands, they would notice the participants’ attitudes too.

But still, it was good to see that all 12 participants were honoured and given opportunities on the stage. I would also say, there are so many real talented ones among those 12 and it was a sad thing that some of them could not make it to the finals. So yeah…. We can’t really say only the 5 were talented (or for u it was only 3)..but most in the final 12 were good.

By the way, I don’t know Shakthi TV’s signature tune as I’ve never heard it..nor Swarna Vahini's or Sirasa. So I have no comments on that and can’t come to any conclusion without hearing them. :p
I know there is Shakthi, Sirasa but have no idea about Swarna Vahini. Is it another tamil station?

Anonymous said... @ 7/26/2007 5:27 AM

Oops!,
Sorry You have got me wrong agian, er.. Miss.?
Read carefully my earlier points please. I agree that th 12 were really talented. No questions about that.
My point is would have been better had the SMS voting reflected the talents as well.


Am I clear?

Good Luck for whattttt? :@ / :s

What so funnyyy ?? I talked about the contest coz I knew good enough knowledge about it to talk about it. When it came to the signature tune or whatever, I told the truth that I don’t know it.

I have clearly said it is super TV Station, didn't I? No question about it?
And we are talking ABOUT the programme and NOT about the station (Wonder how and where you got mixed up?)
About your contradiction;
See what you have said in your earlier comments:

1)would like to say all Tamil people watch Shakthi TV b'coz its NO.1. People who have/do only the best of everything whatch Shakthi TV.
And then you came back again:

2)AND When I said Tamil people in PS. above [when answering 'anonymous'], I meant all tamil-speaking people and everyone who watch Shakthi -Not only Tamils but all the people who watch shakthi , sirasa, MTV. The people who go for the best!

"No They don’t have to, because people know how good they are. Also, even though every business has their target of making more money, I would say Shakthi is doing many services,"

Therefore, I do not necessarily need to know the Signature tune to comment on the programme and there is nothing funny to laugh at and to wonder did I come all along all this way!

“Swarnavahini is the BEST Tamil Station in Sri Lanka”

------Thanks for the information – but Sorry Anonymous, I think both ‘Super’ and ‘Best’ should go to Shakthi and it will then make more sense. (Pls don’t start ‘how could you say that without even knowing about Swarnavahini ! :p )
If Swarnavahini is the BEST, how come I didn’t even know there is such station exists?

Hi Miss,

You are very emotional. Keep cool.

“Swarnavahini is the BEST Tamil Station in Sri Lanka”-
You haven't seen the "he..he..he.." following it?
Yeah, to say something is THE best you should also know the contenders,

Am I right?

First you say Shakthi is the best,
Then you say "I just know they are there regarding Shakthi, MTV, and Sirasa" and

And then say..
"When it came to the signature tune or whatever, I told the truth that I don’t know it"

And also
"I know there is Shakthi, Sirasa but have no idea about Swarna Vahini. Is it another tamil station?"

Then how can you say
"I would like to say all Tamil people watch Shakthi TV b'coz its NO.1. People who have/do only the best of everything whatch Shakthi TV."
"I meant all tamil-speaking people and everyone who watch Shakthi -Not only Tamils but all the people who watch shakthi , sirasa, MTV. The people who go for the best!"

hey ppl,

listen up there is nothin gonna happen BIG to the "SUPER STARS" they r not gonna gain popularity, they will only gain popularity in Sri lanka for a short while, Sri lanka isn't popular enough to show hw much talented ppl live in Sri lanka. My point of view is that the is no point of arguin who the Super Star in all chanel will be????!!!!

PPL think for a minute is it rite wat we r doin!! i mean we gotta a lot of problems in our country to sort out, bascially we r forgettin the problems and we r CELEBRATIN, i mean watever!! SO PPL USE UR BRAIN it is worth doin dis programs if we gain any popularity in other countries, so our Talented ppl can develop themselves and become a real superstar.

Our Sri lankan History was dat we were a small singapor (industrial country) unfortunalty we arent anymore, nw see the indians they hav gained popularity in other countries, they are shown in every foreign channels, POOR US WE ARENT POPULAR BECUZ WE HAV GOT PROBLEMS DAT WE HAVENT SOLVED YET. So ppl think we frist need freedom in our country, then celebration.

SO LETS HOPE FOR A FREEDOM!!!! HOPEFULLY WE WILL BECOME POPULAR SUMDAY!!!! I WISH ALL THE WINNERS BEST FOR THEIR FUTURE!!

Miss One&Only said... @ 8/03/2007 9:03 AM

ABOUT THE CELEBRATION…

Yeah, you are right that there is no point of arguing who the super star is.

Let me just ask something… we have problems in our country for years and years but nobody had stopped celebrating their birthday or the country’s birthday. If you can tell when are we gonna get a solution, then we can stop all this and think about it later. But the reality is that nobody knows what is going to happen and if there is really an end for all. So, it’s better to at least do that we can and not crying about the problems.

Your point: PPL think for a minute is it rite wat we r doin!! i mean we gotta a lot of problems in our country to sort out, bascially we r forgettin the problems and we r CELEBRATIN… “

Individuals can’t stop what they are doing and use their brain to think about an endless problem. We can rather use the brain to live a good life. Wht will happen even if people stop doing all this? What do you want them to do otherwise? Nothing is on their hands!

If we have problems on one hand, better to have more good things on the other hand…. Rather than saying ‘let’s stop everything’. Sorry, I don’t really understand what will happen by stopping all these. And do whattttt?

So u r saying in order for our country people to become popular, we need to stop all the celebration now. Hey, How is that gonna solve our probs and hw will tht help the people to improve their skills? You need to be skilled to become popular, so why not these programmes (in ur words, ‘celebration’) can be a foundation for what you think is the aim??

Do you see the solution for the problem? How far is it away? If you hav the answer, then it’s worth considering of stopping these celebrations and the services that Shakthi do!

Yeahhhh As you said….LET’S HOPE FOR A FREEDOM, THEN ‘BIGGER’ CELEBRATION THAN NOW! :)
Good that u wishes the winners and not telling them off to shut their mouth & not sing! :p Lol

hi, Miss 1&O,
First superb views on "celebrations". I fully endorse your views.
Hi, You took about a week to cool down Miss? ;p.
No, my point was, that to say some this "Best" shouldn'd you know with waht you're comparing it with, right? You simply need to know, what are the other stations in Sri Lanka to and should know there programs to say "okay this is the best station"
Okay?
What I said you're contradicting is that at one point you are saying it is the best station (Which I agree anyway) what I pointed is that on your consequent posts youre kind of disowning saying "I just know" and that you do not about the oters stations.
Well, If you do not know the other stations how can you come to that conclusion, that one stations is the "Best"?
I do not wish to argue on the tune stuff since you are not into it.

But I must give two thumbs up for it's super star program-particularly as it is doing it as a service and not as a business! Incredible that way. It should be really appreciated.

As you said it should get better as time pass by.

Hi Anonymous…

Thanks for accepting my views on Celebrations –was glad that u didn’t make any comments against it. Well, I am always cool..so yh!

Yes you are right that, to say something the ‘best’, I need to know about all others that I am comparing with. I agree! Yes Okayyyy! However……… as long as what I am saying is right (that Shakthi is the best) and you are agreeing it, why do we have to argue whether I know well about other stations or not. I agree that I don’t know well about other stations… but then it hasn’t had any influence on the conclusion anyway – as long as it’s correct.


You may confuse how did I come to a conclusion that one station is the best. Ermmm… that’s because I know and heard about Shakthi’s programmes whereas I didn’t even have an idea that there are such stations like Swarnavahini exist. Well…I agree that this is not a good reason to make a conclusion but then I know that it must be right. Hope I am not self contradicting now. You are agreeing with it anyway…so why arguing about minor things?

Also… thanks for appreciating the programme and yes it needs time. And things can get better and better only gradually! :) Tc

Hi 'no longer anonymous'...

What made me feel that you would criticise? You always make some kind of comments against what I say anyway. That's why.... :p

"Well, you've done it for me!"

What hav I done? Criticising?..... Criticising what? :S

Hi,
Not criticizing exactly, but posting a response!!

;p

Miss One&Only said... @ 8/08/2007 8:59 AM

OH OK. Hmm...

"Not criticizing exactly, but posting a response!!"

I am a bit confused. :S I have been posting replies anyway ??!!??!!

How come you have kind of slowed down in arguing? :s

So, you want me to argue?!?!?

Yeah , you looked beyond redemption and I had to sort of give up!
No point !:(
'Cos you always get the wrong end of the stick!

"You always make some kind of comments against what I say anyway. That's why.... :p"

Well, that's what a debate's all about!!!!

–was glad that u didn’t make any comments against it. Well, I am always cool..so yh!

Good girl!!

"I am a bit confused. :S"

I have told you so. You are totally confused!

"I have been posting replies anyway ??!!??!!"
Not just "posting" I said for posting the same/similar views


How come you have kind of slowed down in arguing?

"Thought you find it very difficult to keep up with my speed!:)

So...so How is your donkey doing these days?

I didn’t say I want you to argue, but then that’s the whole point of YOU being here.. isn’t it?

“'Cos you always get the wrong end of the stick!”

When did I? What I think right is wrong to your view, and what I think wrong is right to you… so “SAME TO YOU”. (except the one on Celebrations)...

“"You always make some kind of comments against what I say anyway. That's why.... :p"
Well, that's what a debate's all about!!!!””

So, you sound like, when it comes to debate, even if I am right, you just talk against it?


I am totally confused?? :(


“"Thought you find it very difficult to keep up with my speed!:)”

What is your speed then? How many m/hr? I will try to catch-up.
I was keeping my speed constant, it’s you kinda slowed down or gave up.. tired?

“So...so How is your donkey doing these days?”

Donkeyyyyyyyyyyyyyy? :@
MY donkey ??? What ???

How come you speak in terms of donkeysss? ….[little suspicious] …
By the way, I didn’t get it.
Donkeyyyyyy? MY donkey? I don’t have any donkeys .. Are you sure you are okay?

Nice to see you are AT it!!

"'Cos you always get the wrong end of the stick!”
If you see my first post, you will see I have not commented on the TV Station" but you have come back shouting "shakthi is the best blah blah blah...
The point of my message is the program called Shakthi Super Star, Not Shakthi TV.
I wonder why you chose to cheer for the Station instead.
Obviously it is a wrong end, isn't it?

Yeah, in a way, you are sort of very trying -your stupidity!

"What is your speed then? How many m/hr? I will try to catch-up.
I was keeping my speed constant, it’s you kinda slowed down or gave up.. tired?"

FYI: My speed will be determined by your your speed lady.
May be now -I am sort of getting to like your stupidity (madam as in atchcham, madam, naanam, payirppu).


"By the way, I didn’t get it."

Well, you never got ANYTHING in the first place!
This....your "naivety", it is charming.

Okay then, how is your donkey doing?

Hi,
Since you have started it again...

"You always make some kind of comments against what I say anyway. That's why.... :p"

Well, that's what a debate's all about!!!!””

So, you sound like, when it comes to debate, even if I am right, you just talk against it?
Haven't you seen debates? Besides in this case I AM right.

"What I think right is wrong to your view, and what I think wrong is right to you… so “SAME TO YOU”. (except the one on Celebrations)...

Sorry young lady, Nope.

I agree that Yugi should have been kept out,I agree
I agree that Shakthi TV is the best TV around
I agree that the 12 finalists are all er... good.
I agree with your views on celebrations

But you are still wrong in that the elected SSS is the best singer of the lot.
What I am saying is the SMS voting does not reflect the true talents.
If you have any doubts you can check it out with the experts/judges at the function Yugi, Arundathi, or Mahinda?

The girls didn't make it simply because SL Tamil community is totally an MCP community.

So so
How's your donkey doing these days. Aren't you following it anymore?

"If you see my first post, you will see I have not commented on the TV Station" but you have come back shouting "shakthi is the best blah blah blah..”.

I didn’t shout at you..did I? I have the rights to say what I think is the best or worst here. I didn’t say that you are wrong because u said this and that about the station. I was just mentioning my opinion..and it’s u who started commenting on what I said.


"The point of my message is the program called S
Shakthi Super Star, Not Shakthi TV."

Could you scroll up and see what you wrote in ur first post pls. You have said “It shows what kind of people watch Shakthi TV.”
Is this not about the TV? You didn’t say ‘it shows what kind of people watch Shakthi super star but TV!’



"I wonder why you chose to cheer for the Station instead. Obviously it is a wrong end, isn't it?"

I am not cheering the Station. I just answered what you said in ur previous post about what kind of people watch Shakthi. I answered that the people who go for the best watch Shakthi. Clear? That’s when started talking about the Station while answering you. So, you was touching the wrong end first and I was answering…and then you came to the conclusion that I am holding the wrong end and talking about the station instead of the prog.


"Yeah, in a way, you are sort of very trying -your stupidity! "

Yes, I am very trying..OK



"Haven't you seen debates? Besides in this case I AM right."

No, I haven’t seen debates in my life and I don’t even know the meaning of it. If u think you are right and I am right, ok keep it like that.



"But you are still wrong in that the elected SSS is the best singer of the lot. "

I didn’t say that. I was saying that once someone is selected as the best by many people, you should not call them ‘poor talented’ and ‘nincompoops’. I have talked about the participants but I never addressed anyone badly. That’s what I was trying to say.


"What I am saying is the SMS voting does not reflect the true talents."
“ Yes, I agree with you about the point abt SMS votes.” – I said this already in my previous posts anyway.


"The girls didn't make it simply because SL Tamil community is totally an MCP community."

So aren’t you one of the SL Tamil community then?

"How's your donkey doing these days. Aren't you following it anymore?"

Phew I thought you have chickened out!


The main thing in a debate-since you do not know about debate is keeping one's composure.
So keep cool young lady.
Having said that


"So aren’t you one of the SL Tamil community then?"
Sorry No. I do not consider myself as a member of the MCP SL Tamil Community. Thanks to my father I am born into it!!-rather an unfortunate thing.


:@ what does this mean? Grrr....??

"I was just mentioning my opinion.."

You have 100 percent right to hold your opinion-even if it is wrong.

So Am I

"and it’s u who started commenting on what I said."

Shall we stop the Chicken-egg thing here?

“ Yes, I agree with you about the point abt SMS votes.” – I said this already in my previous posts anyway.'
"Did you? Opps! Sorry, I should have missed it;)"

" That’s when started talking about the Station while answering you. So, you was touching the wrong end first and I was answering…and then you came to the conclusion that I am holding the wrong end and talking about the station instead of the prog."

I wish I can touch the right end- that is if you can show me the right end. ;)

"I was saying that once someone is selected as the best by many people, you should not call them ‘poor talented’ and ‘nincompoops’.

"Sorry I am rather an elitist uncaring, brute"

But I didn't know how to call "nincompoop" in a polite way! I apologize.


"I have talked about the participants but I never addressed anyone badly,".


True. I admire you. I respect your refinement. I told you earlier. You are really charming, particularly when you are angry!


Why did you repeat the debate part?

It's about YOUR donkey, you donkey!

Yeah I can see now- that’s why you are saying whatever you think is right for YOU –even if it’s wrong. OK

>"Shall we stop the Chicken-egg thing here?"

It is not a Chicken-egg thing. It’s you who started about the TV.

>"I wish I can touch the right end- that is if you can show me the right end. ;)"
You are not agreeing with anything tht I do… (Pls don’t start listing the minor, few things that you have agreed)..so how can I make you agree with something that is right. You are talking like you just wanna make whatever I say wrong. :(

>"But I didn't know how to call "nincompoop" in a polite way! I apologize."
You should not call someone rudely in a bad manner - that’s what I meant…..& not to call people bull-shit, nincompoop etc.

I didn’t repeat the debate part. I corrected something.
