On the Cover Inbox 1305


I happened to meet Kiruthiga Udhayanidhi at the Screenwriting Workshop organized by Sri Kamal Haasan. Shortly thereafter she called me to ask whether I would like to be on the cover of her magazine. All that I could say was "I would be honored".
After the feature in Hindu MetroPlus this is my second cover story. And I have been super kicked. To be on a magazine cover is a super feeling, for want of a better adjective.
I have not read the magazine yet but I requested Mrs Kiruthiga to send me the cover image so that I could put it up on my blog and she sent it to me within seconds.
I found her to be highly genteel, extremely down to earth and easy going. Fun to be around. I learnt a new lesson in simplicity and humility from her. Life does present so many opportunities to learn from people if we just care to notice and have a mind open enough to learn.
The only person I slightly felt sorry for was Pradeep, the photographer. I could have well been one of his tough subjects. Felt too conscious of the entire lights-camera-pose thing. Shall post an update once I get my hands on the mag.

Hai akka,
U look flamboyant.After seeing your portrait,a sense of divinity creeps in my mind..The pictures on the magazine's cover felt anachronic for many aeons,but after seeing your cute adorable picture i am spellbound,speechless,dumbfounded...U embellished this magazine akka..! I can visualize an aureole behind your picture akka..."MISS MULTIMEDIA" followed by "MISS WORLD"..? Ur picture is cho cho chweet....!(for want of betterest... superlative)
ardent fan -Jishu.

Vishnu Priya said...

Hi Chinmayi,

LOGIC said...

Nice that you feel happy to see yourself on magazine cover. How nice would it be on wikipedia? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinmayi lacks a FREE image. Request you to release any picture of you that you own in creative commons license / other free license which you are comfortable with. You can edit wikipedia and add your image yourself, otherwise you can publish it here, i can take that little effort of putting up there.
