Comali Movie Review


Comali is a movie which says about the lifestyle between 90's and 2K. 

It gave the nice feel on the changes perfectly.  The '90s born living in 2k had a great time to recall their memories.

There is a thin line but the development between the two sweet generations is shown nicely in the movie. 

Staring : Jayam Ravi, Kajal Aggarwal, Samyuktha Hedge, K.S.Ravikumar, Yogi Babu, ponnambalam.

The movie comali 
Director -Pradeep Ranganathan. 
Music Director-Hip-hop Tamizha Aadhi.
Photography-Richard M Nathan.

The Theatre of the audience expressed their emotions well. Sometimes it filled with silence, claps, whistle, shouting here and there. 

'Jayam Ravi' acting before and after coma was nice. Others helped to take the movie with fun and entertain.

Its a pleasant movie with timing reactions.

Seeding Tray

Seeding Tray

We bought seeding tray from Amazon for our gardening purpose.

A pair of seeding tray with 20 slots each. It costs 400.

It helps to grow small seeds till it become sapling.

Fill it with  soil or cocopeat to get the seed to grow.

We used soil from our garden to fill the seeding tray.

There is a hole at the bottom of each of the slot to drain excess water.

It is easily portable and helps us to give special attention to each seed.

Only thing is we need to have more concentration while taking the sapling out of the tray. 

As the slot is tiny it is difficult to dig the hole. So we need to take the plant slowly without affecting the root.

We sowed tomato,chilly,ladies finger and that became sapling.

 Tomato sapling from the seeding tray.

Storing tea powder for gardening

Tea powder

In the beginning I directly added the daily use tea powder to the soil.

Then i feel it was not the best way. Then I started using the below method.

 I kept used teapowder in a plate after filtering.

This tea powder is without sugar.

After it dried fully I shifted the tea powder in a box and stored it for gardening.

I used the tea powder (half spoon for each plant) directly once in a week .
