"It was like one of those much-awaited rock shows. First, an opening act by a band trying to find its feet to get you warmed up before the seniors blow you off yours. Evam's "The Cut of Hamlet" was somewhat like that."

.... and that was Sudhish Kamath from the Hindu, dated 27th June, 2006!

YEA PEOPLE!!!! Amidst all the craze of 20 actors doing line rehearsal, stage rehearsal etc etc even mind rehearsal..... i saw rashmi and bida muttering things under their breath... i thought they were a tad irritated with me before i faintly heard dialogues from the play!Anyways ... things were just crazy, chaotic, call it whatever u like .... backstage for Hamlet was one crazy dance by itself .. with each of Tmk's costume change lasting not more than 5 seconds!!!After all that ... we managed to get the show on stage !!!

For more details on the shows .... well keep reading the blog... i believe in giving out information inn installments!! ok not really but hey..... also check out out review in the Hindu by Sudhish Kamath @

When asked what they were thinking one day before show, these were the responses we got…

“Oh Shit!!” (TMK, member of cast)

“I’m very happy show is happening in one day” (Rohini, co-production head, also writer of Miss India punch lines  )

“Ummmmmmm….” (Password, lights guy)

The third member of the cast and co-managing partner of evam, Sunil Vishnu K was unavailable for comment.

For the first ever time......

This season, evam brings a one-minute, hot off the censor board, first ever trailer of a stage-production for the double-comedy festival that starts on 24th June, 2006! Three weirdoes from the Shakespearean era, out of nowhere, land up in Chennai. Bad enough they are trapped in a location and era far, far removed from their time, they are complete misfits even in the Shakespearean era …funny costumes, weird get-ups and moreover misplaced sense of identities, which have taken the city by storm!!

The video has an expert touch to it, having been shot on a DV camera, edited by Nandini and Sudhir, having been shot by a thoroughly professional outfit at photographer Sunder's studio and of course, Shoo and KK having scripted/directed it and sitting through looong hours of editing............Its now finally ready!

The trailer would be regularly screened at Satyam and Sree this month. Watch out for this video on www.evam.in from 13th June, 2006!!

Whats new ......THIS!!!

"Take everything you love about iPod and shrink it. Now shrink it again. With 1GB (240 songs), 2GB (500 songs) and 4GB (1,000 songs) models, the pencil-thin iPod nano packs the entire iPod experience into an impossibly small design. So small, it will take your music places you never dreamed of."
-Apple Computer, Inc. , 2006

The first time I ever searched the internet for any information on the ipod nano, i read the lines i have quoted above! I wanted to make sure it really was worth owning... being a person who is extremely unexcited and emotionless when it comes to technology, my only response to that was "hmpphh!!"... My brother, who is a little too fond of anything with a microchip looked at me shocked, and waved a very disapproving finger at me !!

Three months later, I got an ipod nano for my birthday!! That was the first time I actually touched one ... what should i say ... now i am clutching it 24/7 with some sort of desperation! IT ROCKS!!!!!

So when KK and Shoo wanted one for evam i was so KICKED!! Now we own a jet black ipod nano, 1 GB, smart to look at, sleek to hold, easy to handle .... yes, i am not a technoloy-freak who knows the technical details about the ipod nano like the back of her hand ... but i must say... i am loowwwiiinnggg it!!

Once it arrived from Singapore, the Vijay brothers , our official techies, disappeared with it for a few days and returned with it , fully loaded with songs. Apparently it has passed some three different scans/tests to make sure it is OK!!

YEA YEA to all ipod owners and lovers!!
